Friends on the other side
Dr Facilier
Friends on the other side

Dr. Facilier:
Don’t you disrespect me little man.
Don’t you derogate or deride!
You’re in my world now, not your world.
And I got friends on the other side.

He’s got friends on the other side.

Dr. Facilier:
Thats an echo gentlemen,
Just a little something we have here in Louisiana.
A little parlor trick, don’t worry.

Sit down at my table, put your mind at ease.
If you relax it will enable me to do- anything I please.
I can read your future, I can change around some, too.

I look deep into your heart and soul- you do have a soul, don’t you Lawrence?
Make your wildest dreams come true!
I got Vodoo, I got hoodoo, I got things I aint even tried!
And I got friends on the other side.

He’s got friends on the other side!

The cards, the cards, the cards will tell.
The past, the present, and the future as well.
The cards… the cards… Just take three.
Take a little trip into your future with me!

Now you young man are from across the sea.
You’ve come from two long lines of royalty,
I’m a royal myself on my mother’s side.
Your life style’s high…!
But your funds are low…

You need to marry a little honey whose daddy got dough.
Mom and dad cut you off, huh playboy?
Now y'all better get hitched, but hitching ties you down-
You just wanna be free, hop from place to place,
but freedom, takes green… Heh heh heh…

It’s the green, it’s the green, it’s the green you need…!
And when I look into the future is the green that I see.
On you little man I don’t want wanna waste much time.
You’ve been pushed around all your life!
You’ve been pushed around by your mother,
and your sister and your brother.
And if you was married-
you’d be pushed around by your wife.

But in your future- the you I see…
is exactly the man you always wanted to be.
Shake my hand. Come on boys, won’t you
shake a poor sinner’s hand…?

Yes… Are you ready?!

Are you- ready?!
Transformation Central!
Transformation Central!
Transformation Central!

Transformacation Central! Can you feel it?
You’re changing, you’re changing, you’re changing alright!
I hope you’re satisfied.
BUT, if you ain’t, don’t blame me.
You can blame my friends on the other side… Ah ha ha ha ha!

You got what you wanted!
But you lost what you had!

“Bein’ Green” by Joe Raposo

It’s not that easy bein’ green
Havin’ to spend each day the color of the leaves
When you think it could be nicer
Bein’ red, or yellow, or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It’s not easy bein’ green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And ponies tend to pass you over
‘Cause you’re not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green’s the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like,
And green can be big like an ocean,
Or important like a mountain,
Or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be,
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder? Why wonder?
You are green, and it’ll do fine
It’s beautiful,
And I think it’s what you want to be.

Seen here (or should I say “green here”) are Acorn, Bonnie Green, Connie, Gargle, Gravekeeper, Johnny Lightem, Nurse Nimble, Pembroke W. Korgi, Peony, Snew Pea, Sweetgrass, and Zap Point.
