This song is a collaboration with Jim "Le Jaz" Zheutlin also known as the Acid Cowboy. Jim co-wrote the lyrics with me.


Things ain't always what they seem

I Had a girl / when I was 19
I treated her / like she was a Queen
But I found out things / ain't always what they seem.
things ain't always what they seem

Got me a job / at a factory.
I thought we'd settle down / she always loved me,
But things ain't always what the seem

Soon she left me / my paycheck was too lean
This story could go wrong / but i took a hike
straight to Illinois try / my luck in oblong
Since things ain't always what they seem.

The truckdriver said / The ride might take long
but you can't go wrong / with a girl from Illinois
Well things ain't always what they seem

Went into a church / the pastor said to me
he had a daughter / sweet as could be
she's looking for a man / a good christian he should be
so he baptised me / almost drowned

but now i'm happy as can be
Things aren't always what the seem!
Things aren't always what they seem
