I got someone keeping an eye keeping an eye on me oh my guardian angel is keeping an eye on me most of the time I’m on my own but I’m never really alone I know its not my imagination that leads me not in to temptation I got someone….. it seems I’m going through a phase you state your case in different ways I talk to you, you don’t reply I know you know I don’t know why I got someone….. I try not to but I still fall trying to get to the truth that’s all diversions soon get my attention till I’m dancing on my good intentions I got someone…… words & music by George Bacon ã2003 lardfumee@gmail.com

there’s a bird in a willow singing pretty beneath my window singing about what you do to me all the stars in the heavens are at sixes and sevens its beyond them what you do to me so warm, so tender sweet love in all its splendour I pray there’s no end to what you do to me the sun that burns persistent through a sky blue and distant fades beside what you do to me I can read I can write I can dance all night I cant understand what you do to me so warm…. words & music by George Bacon ã2010 info@georgebreakfast.com

plenty of people that I know like to watch it on a TV show or read about it in a glossy magazine but when the real thing comes along it wont matter you’ll be gone trust yourself, love will get the better of you you can worry about technique dream about the right physique run, swim, lift weights, do yoga too and none of this will hurt at all you’ll bounce better when you fall in the end love will get the better of you love………will get the better of you get the better of you, and I cant wait for it too you can fuss and you can moan you can wind up all alone you can grit your teeth and make it through and you’ll be proud of what you’ve done you may think the battle’s won in the end love will get the better of you love……. you can wear the finest clothes strut around look down your nose you can have your cake and eat it too I don’t know if you can sell your soul you can struggle for control in the end love will get the better of you words & music by George Bacon ã2010

we put things off, procrastinate make appointments, show up late shelter from the rain, lie in the sun you gotta do the things that gotta be done you can sleep in late, or get up early if you nose is straight or your hair is curly if its one big drag or nothing but fun you gotta…. you gotta de ‘em…..do ‘em right you gotta de ‘em…..do ‘em right there’s always time for a cup of tea a cigarette, a little TV you gotta make love to your only one you gotta….. there’s wood to chop, fences to mend dogs to walk , rules to bend games to be played, battles to be won you gotta….. you gotta de ‘em….. there’s letters to write, calls to make people to meet, claims to stake bargains to be struck, deals to be done you gotta……… there’s hands to hold, eyes to catch times to be bold, kisses to snatch every kind of pastime under the sun you gotta….. words & music by George Bacon copyright 2010 info@georgebreakfast.com

I gotta tell you what happened to me just when I thought it could never be I met someone who put my heart a crazy beat I hold her tight whenever I can I feel like I was born to be her man and she makes me want to love her with every last ounce of me when we talk, we talk all day we both have so much to say I gotta tell you darling you’re my cup of tea a little milk and honey, my favourite recipe you and me I got a big mouth I gotta tell the world I’m dead in love with a beautiful girl and I no longer care what anybody thinks of me when I’m with her the surroundings fade I cant keep my mind off the love we made and she makes it clear she’ll be going home with me she don’t mind who I am we’re as happy as a couple of clams I gotta tell you……… how I ever lived without you I don’t know but now I don’t have to and you’ve indicated you also like to be with me how can someone as lovely as you feel for me the way I feel for you this is the real thing, there’s no denying you and me when we’re not together now I’m not quite myself somehow I gotta tell you…………….. words & music by George Bacon ã2010 info@georgebreakfast.com

I wish I’d been born in another time in the gold rush years back in 49 when the living was fine man you should have been there a man was a man, a bear was a bear a dog was a friend, a wife was a lover and people never drank or killed one another and everyone believed in the good and the better there was no divorce, people stuck together and daddy was king and mama was queen the rivers ran pure and the air was clean there was plenty of time to do what you hadda and now I’m quite mad and I think I’m getting madder and I wish I was there right now I love to read all that stuff about the future space is a place for us to run around in rocket ships and space stations we’ll settle other planets and live forever wont be sickness they’ll wipe out death everyone’ll look great if they hold their breath and the pie in the sky will be everybody’s dinner wont be no losers only winners you wont have to work, you wont have to hurry you wont have to think, you wont have to worry imagine if you can having no imagination what a relief, just pure sensation mother nature and high tech bliss joined together in a perfect kiss the latest thing is always too late the minute you got it its out of date but then again if you’re prepared to wait it’ll come right back and again its great so the 30s and the 40s come alive again the 50s the 60s the rockers the hippies back in style better than ever them yesterdays go on forever and the sun keeps shining and the wind keeps blowing and the flies keep buzzing all around whats cooking and hey good looking don’t you get any older when you keep on looking over your shoulder and the TV tells you ‘bout the way it never was and the way its never going to be wait and see meanwhile we all stay in trim looking for her or waiting for him but deep down in everyone is a little piece of the eternal one words & music by George Bacon copyright 2003

far across the ocean wide so the story is often told there’s a land of peace and quiet where time is still and love is bold if you tread that holy ground each instant remains new the closest yet that I have found is in the arms of only you holding you close to me kissing me the way you do yeah tonight I long to be in the arms of only you in the arms of only you since I first beheld your face calmly regarding me you have never left that place deep inside the heart of me you are with me all day long no matter what I do and I know where I belong in the arms of only you holding you……… like a play without a script like a song without a tune like a day without the sun I am nothing without you so now as the sun goes down and the work’s no longer new my body longs to rest a while in the arms of only you holding you…. words & music by George Bacon copyright 2010 info@georgebreakfast.com

about

this album was begun in August 2007!...I went into Tom Bainbridge's Real Deal Studio outside Cambridge UK with Ian Pickering on drums and Fabian Bonner on bass and we recorded basic tracks for 18 songs....circumstances then led to the whole project gathering dust for more than 3 years....I then dug it out and made some decisions about which songs to work on.....Neil Thomas and Steve Antonakos added some parts long distance via Steve's home studio in E17th St Manhattan....in November 2010 I went to Santa Fe to spend Thanksgiving with my old friend Jono Manson and his then brand new family.....during that stay we did a great deal of work in his Kitchen Sink studio up in Chupadero in the hills outside Santa Fe....in particular, he and Jaime Michaels added fabulous backing vocals to several songs.....I then went back to New York for Christmas and while there, added backing vocals at Nancy Atlas's home studio out in Montauk, and at Mark Ettinger's home studio in the Upper West Side of Manhattan...and the great Eric 'Roscoe' Ambel added guitar on a track in his home studio.....finally back in Cambridge UK Cath Coombs added some singing in my home studio....
as busy as he was in his professional recording and performing career, Jono found time here and there to work on mixes, and then we decided that I should return to Santa Fe in November 2012 so we could finish up the mixes together....so 5 years and 3 months later, here it is!...
big thanks and love to everyone involved for so patiently sticking with it....we all hope you like the results.....
