Song lyrics[edit]

Little Stevie Orbit (1980)[edit]

  • You sure looked good, bound for Shilburn Town
    Tryin' to drive that car while the rain came down
    And you sure looked fine
    Oh yeah, readin' highway signs
    And you sure looked good up on Crystal Beach
    Reelin' in them fish, with your hair all bleached
    And you sure looked fine
    Hey, yeah, with your hooks and lines
    La, da, di, dumb, da, la, da, di, dumb, day
    Every move you make, everything you say
    Well, you sure are fine
    Oh yes and you blow my mind
    • Song for Katrina

  • My problems are few
    If I don't stop to think
    The red golden leaves
    Scream the song of the sun
    The high rolling hills
    Give it all in the fall
    The hot days are gone... now
  • I'm traveling alone
    Up the highway of sight
    The blue shadows fall
    On the graveyard of stone
    The mild afternoon
    Puts the coffee cup down
    My eyes see the moon... rise
    And all I am is energy
    And now I'm in this form
    I came shooting down the universe at birth
    • A Visitor
