about

Parzen Family Singers Houston, Texas

Parzen Family Singers is an indy-pop band formed in Houston by Nous Non Plus guitar player and Les Sans Culottes alumnus Jeremy Parzen (aka Cal d'Hommage).

For Parzen, writing a song is like writing a blog post: it captures a moment in time, an impression of the world around us, and a feeling inside our hearts.

Inspiration comes from Lila Jane (2) and Georgia P (4) and wife Tracie P née B.

Track Name: Christmas Comes Just Once a Year
It's cold outside
And there is snow on the ground
You can feel the yuletide
And you can hear the sound
Of caroling
And people who are having fun
You can hear them sing
To celebrate their favorite son

Christmas comes just once a year
So fill your cup with joy and spread the cheer

The miseltoe
Waits patiently
As we watch the snow
And decorate the tree
Jingle bells
Ring through the night
And the Christmas lights
Shine so very bright (so very bright, so very bright)

Christmas comes just once a year
It's a time to hold the ones you love
And say I love you dear (I love you dear, I love you dear)
Christmas comes just once a year
It's a time to hold the ones we love
So very near

Merry Christmas
Peace on earth

Christmas comes just once a year
So fill your cup with joy and spread the cheer
Christmas comes just once a year
I want to wish the whole wide world
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
Seasons greetings, happy holiday
Track Name: She Can Change My Whole Wide World
Austin summer it's so hot outside
You can see the sun running overdrive
I take a stroll down to the corner store
And I go back inside because I want some more

Alegria and the Groovers' lane
I can see the sky and I can hear the train
In the distance going somewhere new
I just want to be in the moment with you

She can change my whole wide world
She can change my whole wide world

Lay in bed o Lord I slept so late
It's been way too long that I have been away
She yawns and rubs the sleepin' from her eyes
I'm so glad to be here she says so am I

She can change my whole wide world
She can change my whole wide world
Track Name: Georgia Ann
Georgia Ann, please take my hand
And take a walk with me girl
Georgia Ann please understand
I want to talk with you girl

I've been gone for way too long
And I have missed your smiling face
I can't stand to go another day
Without the thought of your embrace (put your arms around me)

Georgia Ann, please understand
I didn't mean to make you feel this way
Georgia Ann, your wish is my command
But there's something that I got to say

Hear me out and please don't pout
I know that you didn't want me to go
Let me sing and let me shout
Because I want the world to know (how he feels about you)

Georgia Ann, please understand
It's been so hard to be away

I have traveled the whole wide world
But I can't wait to get back to my sweet, sweet girl

I am so glad you're my Georgia Ann
I am so glad that I'm a family man

Georgia Ann, I've been a lonely man
Since I said goodbye to mommy and you
I had to go away for my workadays
But you know that's what daddy's do

I want you know that I will always be here
To catch you if you fall
And when you need me for anything
All you got to do is call

Georgia Ann, please understand
There is something I've got to say

I have traveled the whole wide world
But I can't wait to get back to my sweet, sweet girl

I am so glad you're my Georgia Ann
I am so very glad to be your dad
Track Name: Lalala Lila Jane
Lalala Lila Jane
Won't you dance with me, girl
O won't you set yourself free, girl
O little Lila Jane

Lalala Lila Jane
Your kiss is like wine
I can't believe that you're mine
It's like you make the sun shine
I love you, Lila Jane

Lalala Lila Jane
Whoever gave you that name
I'd like to thank her again
I love you, Lila Jane

One day you will know
That your daddy loves you so
Mommy loves you
Sister loves you, too

Lalala Lila Jane

Lalala Lila Jane
I love to call your name
I think I'll sing it again
I love you, Lila Jane

Lalala Lila Jane
You kiss is sweeter than wine, girl
It's like you make the sun shine, girl
I love you, Lila
Come sun or rain
I love you, Lila
Come sun or rain
I love you, Lila Jane
Come sun or rain,
I love you, Lila Jane
Track Name: Lady (I want to make sweet love to you)
You looking at me, looking at you
You're looking so fine
I never had dreamed
That someone like you
Would call me mine

When I start to feel this way
You look me in the eye
Cause you know you're the only one
Who can make me fly

Cause, Lady, I want to make sweet love to you
Like honeybears and butterflies and pandas at the zoo
Lady, only you will do
Cast your magic spell on me
And put me in the mood

A beautiful sight
As I watch you tonight
Across the room
Please come closer to me
Cause I want to see
Your flowers bloom

Show me what my woman does
To make this man a swan
Cause you know you're the only one
Who can turn me on

Cause, Lady, I want to make sweet love to you
Like bumblebees and birds in trees
And lovers on the moon
Lady, won't you come lay next to me
Let me whisper in your ear
And kiss you tenderly

I never knew
What love was for
Til you came in my life
Then I knew it was more
Than just a dream
That someone like you
Would belong to me

Cause, Lady, I want to make sweet love to you
Like honeybears and butterflies and pandas at the zoo
Lady, only you will do
Cast your magic spell on me
And put me in the mood
Put me in the mood
For loving you
Track Name: Hey Joe
Hey Joe, where you going?
What did I hear you say?
You're heading out to New York
Then maybe Frisco
Then down to LA

You're gonna tell 'em the story
Of morning glory
And o by the way
Everyone's doing it hunky dory
So won't you please pass that jay?

You gotta tell 'em, Joe
You gotta let 'em know
That you just must be on your way

You gotta tell 'em, Joe
Although it hurts you so
There's just no way you can stay
You'll love them all some sunny day

You were born on the seventh hour
On the seventh day
Now you've got seven women
Don't let them stand in your way

You gotta tell 'em, Joe
You gotta let 'em know
That you just must be on your way

You gotta tell 'em, Joe
Although it hurts you so
There's just no way you can stay

Little girly standing in the corner
She caught your eye
You better go over there and warn her
It won't be long 'fore you say goodbye

You gotta tell 'em, Joe
You gotta let 'em know
That you only like it one way

You gotta tell 'em, Joe
Although it hurts you so
There's just no way you can stay
Track Name: Tracie B (Won't you marry me)
Tracie B, will you tell me please
Do the bird and bees
Make me feel this way?
Put your little head on my shoulder
Have you any plans for growing older?

Tracie B, you cast a spell on me
By serendipity
When you looked my way
Austin airport at the escalator
Hey good lookin, what you doin' later?

Tracie B, will you marry me?
Will you marry me, girl?

Tracie B, please spend your life with me
I love you endlessly
So don't you run away
Tell me that you'll hold me til forever
Tell me that you'll always be my lover

Tracie B, won't you marry me?
Marry me

Now times might not be easy
But we'll get by on some huggin' and a-squeezin'
The nights may be cold
And the road may be very long
But we know we can always get by singing our song

If someday Tracie B will be Tracie P
Mrs. Dr. P
My Tracie B
Won't you marry me?
Won't you marry me?
Track Name: All We Need Is Grapes
There's nothing you can grow that can't be grown
There's nothing you can plant that can't be sown
There's nothing you can think that can't be thunk
There's nothing you can drink that can't be drunk

All we need is grapes
All we need is grapes
All we need is grapes
All we need is grapes

Mother nature is yours and she is mine
And the tender grapes she grows on the vine
She gives us the earth, the sun, the sky
But it takes humankind to make the wine so fine

All we need is grapes
All we need is grapes
All we need is grapes
All we need is grapes
