The seasons of Ayurveda (singalong) 

CHORUS
G   Em
Ayurveda
C                                             C
Can health really be such a simple thing?

Ayurveda
Have patience while I unlearn what I've learnt

Ayurveda
Everything is already obvious

VERSE
G
In the winter I need to know
D
How to stop from feeling so cold
G                                                      D
Feeling dried out and chapped on the out and inside

Give me warm heavy foods to eat
A way to warm up my cold feet
Teach me how to stay with a steady mind

With a practice of meditation
And daily…

When Grandma got dementia 

VERSE
Bm
When Grandma got dementia
D
It started gradually
Em
She'd forget the name of friends and places
F#
Momentarily

As Grandma got dementia
A little more each day
The woman that we new and loved
Slowly went away

When Grandma got dementia
How my mother cried
Helpless to do anything
As her mother slowly died

[Instrumental]

The doctors didn't mention
The anger and the screams
As she fought a losing battle
Her against her dreams

When Grandma got dementia I was only young But I still remember it vividly As what mum could become

You used to be great 

CHORUS
                        C
You used to be great
                  G
I like your early stuff
                          F                                 G
When you were happy and young and fun

You used to be great
When you were channeling
In the energy of youth is inherent truth

VERSE (intermittent strumming)
But you got old
And you got serious
Took yourself
To extremes

With conversions
And inversions
Of the versions
You thought you had been

Chasing the ghost of a dream

CHORUS

VERSE
Trying hard
Trying too hard
To get back
To…

Hard to find someone who’ll do a good job 

Capo 2nd

VERSE
C                                                          Am
It's hard to find someone who’ll do a good job
C                                      F
Someone you can trust to get it right
F                                         Am
It'll help as you struggle along
                 F               C         
If you expect to it be wrong
                       F                          G
After they've given up half way through
                     C
And said 'that'll do'

VERSE
It's not that they don't know…

My sweet dharma 

VERSE
Am
My pure and precious dharma
E7
What I wouldn't do for you
Dm
I'll keep you pure, be always sure
E7+
Let nothing harm my heart

I'll protect my precious dharma
Won't let anger burn it down
No violent movies, no video games
I'll see nobody harmed

I'll shield my precious dharma
From any sexual deceit
Remain passionless, not obsess for flesh
See no pornography

CHORUS
My dharma
My sweet dharma
My dharma
My sweet dharma

VERSE
My pure and precious dharma
Is such a fragile thing
It could so easily die, telling one little lie
You…

Alright in the end 

VERSE
G                      Em
How are your problems?
C                          D
Has today been a good day?

Do you have new ones?
Or are they the same ones as yesterday?

Are they just for you? Or can I have one to?
I think you've enough to go around

BRIDGE
C                                              D
And if you could let one go at last
You'd see that all problems pass

CHORUS
If you don't play with it, don't pick at the scab
Just leave it alone, don't scratch it

It'll be alright in the end
If it's not alright, it's…

Around me 

VERSE
Egos on the rampage
Not a pretty sight
I'm up for the ugly prize

Searching out in others
Only their mistakes
But when I put the eye aside

CHORUS
She thinks I'm just being selfish
Thinking of myself and no one else here
Playing a game of wait and see
See if the world revolves around me
Or in the chaos swirling around
Checking the background hearing the sounds
Happy to notice, pleased to see
The world does not revolve around

VERSE
Dissatisfaction
With all action
Patterns on repeat

Make a little room
Tune it out
All the…

Food combinations 

VERSE
Food combinations
Food combinations

VERSE
Well I see lots of people
Drinking a glass of milk
And a glass of orange juice, capaccino
Very very bad

The forgiveness song 

VERSE
F#m
I get angry and I judge, I have principles that will budge
Bm
I am a Pitta
C#m
I am impatient when I see, that no one else gets it like me
Bm
I am a Pitta
Am
The heat and the madness rise, when I get hungry run and hide
Em
I am a Pitta
G
Only when I think I've won, do I see the damage done
Am
I am a Pitta
B
I am a Pitta

CHORUS
E
But I forgive
                                           C#m
The imbalancing things that I did
                                A
The damage my doshas did
                                 F#m     

(Introduction to) The ballad of Snigdha 

Capo 1st

VERSE
G
So the 20 gunas is what it's all about
C
I want to describe each one but time's running out
D
So let's do a deep dive on just one
                 G
Good old Snigdha

Son of the sum (14 urges) 



VERSE (Of the 5 elements) If you imbibe of the fire Then it's heat that you sire And will lose your temper And your hair
(Of the 6 tastes) If you overly embrace The astringent taste It can cause clots And even strokes
(Of the 20 gunas)
(And the 14 urges) BRIDGE The 14 urges! The 14 urges!
VERSE If you suppress the urge For a flatus purge You can damage your vision And your heart
If you need to defecate But decide to wait It can cause a twisting pain In your calfs
If you try to hold in Your body's…

You are the average (balance with opposites) 

VERSE
Em G Am
If you're Vata you need Kapha friends
To get stability
For you they live life in slow motion
With no mobility

But this is what you need to slow down
Embrace their sober pace
Sandwiched between their strict routines
You can find a kind of peace

CHORUS
Oh man, you are the average
Of the 5 people
With whom you spend most of the time

You are the average
For long life and good health
Find qualities opposite to yourself

VERSE
If you're Pitta don't have Pitta friends
They'll bring out the worse in you
Life will become a…

Kapha cantata 

VERSE
F Snigdha means you've built in lubrication Bf                                                       F Oily skin and hair you have hydration C You'll never get arthritis  Bf                                         But you're at risk from bronchitis F You get backed up
Sheeta makes you a little bit cold But that’s the reason you get to be so old Inherently cryogenic No.1 in eugenics  If you keep it moving
Guru makes you solid and big-boned Your soul has earned a well-endowed abode It'll last…

Vata for Rhapsody 

CHORUS
F
She's Vata, dry and light

Rough to the touch, cold as ice
Bf
Subtle and clear
C                          F
Can't stop moving around

VERSE -(physical characteristics)

Bf
Cold hands protruding joints
F
Never seen her sweat

Bf                F

Smoke it sparingly 

(Plucking top string and the second string in a pulse, and then two lower together twice)

VERSE
C
When your energy spikes
F                                     C
And you're feeling monkeylike
      F                               G
Like a 4 year old with ADD on coke

Hold back it's not too late
Just before you levitate
Remember to smoke it sparingly

Vata's coursing through your veins
You're a human hurricane
Ready to blow the whole town down

Channel the fields of your tantra
Recite this simple mantra
Please please smoke it…

Snigdha 


CHORUS
G#
Oil up your backside

Oil up the nose

Oil on your body, from your
D#
Head to your toes

Constipated every day, Snigdha
Fm
Emaciated can't put on weight
C#
Hyperactive heart rate
G#             D#    G#
Receding gums, save me Snigdha

Skin dry and flaky, you need Snigdha
Body thin and achy, Snigdha
Earache that's not an infection
Feeling lonely full of dejection
Gas and flatulence, save me Snigdha

CHORUS

VERSE
Headache pulsing from…

We're all screwed 

CHORUS
G                          D        G We're all completely screwed We're all completely screwed We're all going to die in a preventable way And suffer every single step of the way We're all completely screwed
VERSE (Kapha)
CHORUS We're all completely screwed All our lives are utterly doomed The only perverted pleasure in the plays Is that everybody gets to suffer in there own special way We're all completely screwed
VERSE (Vata) So we're crazy Our families crazy We're doomed to a crazy life So who…

Ayurveda blues 

VERSE
C
Can't sit cross-legged in the restaurant
F
Can't
F                              C
Forget about yoga at work
F                              C
And eating

Trying to live an Ayurvedic life
With the wisdom from the ancient guides
Wonder if they'd have been so wise
If they had to live in these times

I'd like to sleep from 8-4
But I've got people knocking on my door
Even in my home
Can't meditate alone

Promoting a diet in tune with the seasons
But nobody wants to hear the reasons
I feel like the last sane man alive
Man it's a…

Why are you running, you're already thin (Like increases like) 

VERSE
A                                   E                   A
Why are you running, you're already thin

The last thing you need is exercise

Look at the state you're in
D
You want to be fitter
A
You want to go faster
D
But your little life force
A
Ain't gonna last you
D                                          E
Save some energy to fight Vata diseases
A                                   E                   A
Why are you running, you're already thin

VERSE
Why are you eating, you're already big
You've grown up all the away…

Agni vs. Ama 

INTRO
Gm
There are two digestive concepts
That you need to know
Bf                                                A/Bf
They determine your life's quality and longevity

Gm
The battle of your life is
Bf              A/Bf
Agni vs. Ama

VERSE 1 (Verse same chords as intro)
Agni is digestion
The fire of transformation
You are not the things you eat, only what you metabolise

And when there's indigestion
Some Ama gets left behind

And any of the stages
From Rasa through Shukra
But if it can't process the food into a dhatu or mula

When…
