Lyrics for Ciao Sonny:
Far into the night I sleep and dream of how it was.
Yes true, life has an end, and time will mend the hurt on pause.
But soon, it will come clear, that you, who was once near, lived life to the end, full and dear.
Now time will go on, and we'll move on to other highs, Ciao Sonny.

Lyrics for The GWB Shuffle:
Here, I go once again over the bridge to New York.
Martha and George.
One never will know if the ride's fast or slow uh-oh.
Now, I drive up and see the mess that's waiting for me.
What could it be?
The traffic is slowing to a crawl that's all, oh-no, oh-yes.
Then it begins.
One never wins cause time after time you try to move in and out and you can't get about so you take it, and you shake it off, a-Gain.
The headache and sweat will come and go, yes I know.
You can be sure.
The shuffle will still be going on and on.
Then it begins. One never wins cause time after time you try to move in and out and you can't get about so you take it, and you shake it off, a-Gain.
The headache and sweat will come and go, yes I know.
You can be sure.
The shuffle will still be going on and on.

"GWB Shuffle is the achievement of my lifetime goal to record my original compositions and arrangements. To my featured friends and bandleaders, it is my way of saying thank you for allowing me to be part of your orchestras and associations!"
