Valley of Love Hey, listen everybody I’ve got a little story to tell It’s about a place so naughty You might know it oh so well. From East to West this valley Is known as a place of sin Where a bunch of peasants started Shooting sex on film! Living in the valley, the peasant valley Where we like to party everyday. Grooving in the valley, the funky valley; Loving with your body, the peasant way! West Hills, Reseda, Van Nuys, Will stay in History As the places where the peasants Ran this sexy industry. It started back in those times When it was not so tough To make a name in movies Shot in the Valley of Love. Chorus The Valley was the place to be, Where you went for fun. Hot cars, groovy music, people to see, Are those days really gone?

Love Revolution (feat. Ellis Hall) Here we are in this Little bubble we live. Not really caring What’s going on with the world. You think there’s nothing We can actually do To make things better, But all you gotta do is believe That our world is not in this little bubble we have That our world is much bigger and together We have to share our love, Sharing our voice with everyone. We have to rise above And join the revolution. There is no time to waste, Our lives are changing everyday. The world needs love and grace, Let’s join the revolution. So many people Today are rising up To make their voices Heard all the way to the top. We can’t sit still While this is happening. The future’s calling And all you gotta do is believe That our world is not in this little bubble we have That our world is much bigger and together We have to share our love, Sharing our voice with everyone. We have to rise above And join the revolution. There is no time to waste, Our lives are changing everyday. The world needs love and grace, Let’s join the revolution. There’s so much beauty in this world Why can’t we smile and see it. It should be our guiding light As we stand up for our rights.

MiniBikini Here you go-go down the beach, Checking out girls and losing speech. So much skin all around you, Makes you feel like-a kid at the zoo. It is summer, everyone’s there. Hot bodies, sexy beach wear. Pretty ladies everywhere, Can you stay cool and not stare? Hey! Do you see them? Hey! Do you want them? Do you like my minibikini? Hey! Don’t play shy! Hey! No need to lie! I know you like my minibikini! You come up close to me, Wanna try to talk, I can see. So many girls around here, But you chose me, it’s very clear. It is summer, sun in my hair. Wet body, sexy beach wear. You are here, I see your stare, Wanna meet me, do you dare? Hey! Do you see them? Hey! Do you want them? Do you like my minibikini? Hey! Don’t play shy! Hey! No need to lie! I know you like my minibikini!

That Guy 03:39
When I met you, You seemed so nice. You said we’re friends, I never thought twice. You wanted help, Wanted to be close. I should’ve felt You’re one of those. You lied to me. You want to control me but I’m free. There’s no way I’m gonna let you close again, yeah! You say there’s no one else that could Make you feel the way that I do. But there’s something wrong in the way You follow me and check my Facebook. And I don’t like it when you try to break into my house! On the outside You’re kinda cute, But on the inside One messed up dude. You’re so unstable, It is amazing How you’re not able To stop the crazies. You lied to me. You want to control me but I’m free. There’s no way I’m gonna let you close again, yeah! You say there’s no one else that could Make you feel the way that I do. But there’s something wrong in the way You follow me and check my Facebook. And I don’t like it when you try to break into my house!

The Vow 05:27
The Vow I can’t help, but feel the pain deep inside My heart that’s been through so much. But I won’t hide The love and sorrow that stir my soul When I hear that sweet melody from distant lands I know. Bless me, lead me and I’ll hold you in my heart. Teach me how to be the one who makes you proud. The path of my life may take me far away To places new and unknown, but I won’t fear cause I know that I’m not alone and there’s a piece in my heart Of you that keeps me warm and I know we’ll never be apart. Bless me, lead me and I’ll hold you in my heart. Teach me how to be the one who makes you proud. Bless me, lead me and I’ll hold you in my heart. Teach me how to be the one who makes you proud. I can’t help, but feel the love deep inside That leads me and lights up my life.

Balkan Party 03:11
Balkan Party You are at home all alone, Don’t know what to do tonight. Get your friends on the phone, It’s gonna be allright. There’s a party you should go With Balkan moonshine, With a band you have to know It will get crazy! This is the night to celebrate, MEZE is playing, don’t be late. We’re gonna drink and dance all night, A Balkan Party goes till the morning light! Отново е уикенда, не знаеш кво да правиш, Вкъщи си, скучно, няма кво се маеш. Има един голям купон дето трябва да идеш и пийнеш, па хоро да друснеш и моми да щипнеш. Във сърцето на ЕлЕй с Оркестър МЕЗЕ сме ги събрали Българи, Американци, всякакви Балканци. Няма такъв купон, шест хорни да ти свират, peasant funk се лее, ти си поркаш, сички пеят... Всички заедно... А така... Come on, everyone!

Village Tale Edna beshe moma Gana, edna moma vuv seloto, Edna moma vuv seloto, edna moma na horoto. Nay mi beshe moma Gana, moma Gana, debelana, Debelana i glezana, debelana, murzelana. Nito pere, nito kopa, samo tendjerite hlopa, Nito shie, nito mie, po tzyal den yade i pie. Rutzete I kato sopi, krakata I kato snopi, Snagata I e do shiya, kato buchva za turshia.
