When Problems Arise
There is no mystery
For what I try to be
...a reason for the things I do
I try to tell you what
Is really false or real But --
You act as if you have no clue

You act this way when problems arise
You act this way when problems arise

You close your eyes and hide
Behind a storybook
When I have something new to tell
If you could put aside
Your stubborn foolish pride
You'd find an exit from this spell

You act this way when problems arise
You act this way when problems arise

What you are -- I don't know what
What you are -- Pain in the butt
What you are no one seems to care
Why do you always do that?
Why do you always do that?
Why do you always do that?
Why do you always do that!?!

You act this way when problems arise
You act this way when problems ariseback to top
A Selection
You go out to the bar after you get paid
You see the little surfer girl with eyes of jade
Then you see a foxy lady standin' by her side
Pick up the blond to have some fun you do decide

You go out to the parking lot -- you find your keys
You get in your auto and you aim to please
But the lover of your choosin' is a chilly shade
A trick, a tick, a silly duck
But, you have made --

A SELECTION
A SEL-E-E-E-E-CTION
A SELECTION
A SEL-E-E-E-E-CTION

You get on the commercial for the t.v. tube
Bob Barker asks you which vehicle you would choose
You want the Cadillac or BMW
And you say O-O-O-O-O-O-OKAY!!

You go out on a date with your fiancee
The pretty little lady with the eyes of gray
You go to the bathroom to brush your teeth
WHAT! NO TOOTHPASTE?!?

(Repeat chorus)

You have to go to New york on a business trip
On train, a plane, a car, or ocean ship
Or you become a rock star and your mind will flip
A choice of psychedelic drugs or groovy chicks
You buy a pack of bubblegum from the store
With two, or three, or four, or five pieces or more
You take out the last piece to put in your mouth
But you select the first piece
Yes, you have made a selection

(Repeat chorus)back to top
Cholly
CHOLLY -- Woman with the big thighs
CHOLLY -- Lady with the hazel eyes
CHOLLY -- Cholly make me feel good
CHOLLY -- Like you know a ho should

I love you Cholly when you're chickling my wally
I love it baby when you shake your fat derriere
Cholly make me feel good -- Cholly

CHOLLY -- We can watch the sun rise
CHOLLY -- Let me touch your thig pies
GOLLY -- Really really big thighs
CHOLLY -- Cholly hit me in the eye-eye-a-eye-eye-a-a-eye-a-eye
OUCH!!!
Cholly make me feel good Cholly

Oh oh golly Cholly you're just chubbly wubbly wobbly
You make me happy when you shake-ling your tub of taffy

I Wish I Had A Date
Well I wish I had a date
So I wear my suit and tie
Well I wish I had a date
With a pretty girl in mind
Well I'll take her out to dinner
And I'll treat her real good
I'll spend all my money on expensive food
Show her off to all the rest of my friends
I'm not good lookin' but at least she's a 10
I won't pay attention while my buddies scam
I'll be in love with a bitchin' bim
You know I am but at least she'll pretend

Well I wish I had a date
And a body for brawls and fights
Well if I didn't have a chicken face
I could mack 'em down the chicks at night
Well we'll go out at night and she'll ignore me
Just a little but not a lot
And she'll go flirt with the tough guys
And they'll fool around with her twat
And for the moment that I have my back turned
She's making out in the parking lot

Well I wish I had a date
With a lot of trust and devotion
Well I wish I didn't have a chump
Who liked to spread her legs like the ocean
But if you know I had a date
And she wouldn't play on me
Cowwa-cowwa bunga
Yeah, man, real peachy

Well I wish I had a date
Well I wish I had a date
Well I wish I had a date
Well I wish I had a dateback to top
Movement In The Light
There's a path for you and I to follow
For our goals aren't always in our sight
But now you've come to dread and fear tomorrow
Were your dreams killed in your sleep last night?
Fight for what is right...
Pray for a movement in the light

Some are slaves to Rhyme, Wit and Reason
Some are slave to all of what they hear
To sing a different song is outright treason
Is the price of freedom what they fear?
This cannot be right...
Pray for the movement in the light

Hey...Hey...There's a light to guide the way
Hey...Hey...The light has brought another day

For you and I should ever come together
Turn away the hatred in your heart
For we should find a peace to last forever
Find the peace no man can tear apart
May all the world unite
Pray for the movement in the lightback to top
Give It Up
Are you getting tired of all the ravages of war?
Aren't you even sure what the hell you're fighting for?
All the broken dreams of men just break me down to pray --
For peace and understanding
We just can't go on this way

ALL-TOGETHER-FREE
ALL-TOGETHER-FREE-UNITED
ALL-HUMANITY
ALL-TOGETHER-FREE-UNITED

GIVE IT UP!!
GIVE IT UP!!
GIVE IT UP!!
GIVE IT UP!!

All the lies are broken all the truth is still the same
All the love and hatred in a world that lives in pain
Will we see the Winds of Time erode this curse away
We just got to stop this madness
We just can't go on this way

(Repeat chorus)

We live for Mother Country
We live for Mother Need
We're looking for the other side
But we're here to burn and bleed
We all know the Righteous --
The truth shall lead the way
But we all know the Darkness so believe me when I say...

(Repeat chorus)back to top
In The Air
It's not the liars that can set your free
It's not the riches that you can't foresee
No, it's not the monkey or the LSD
It's not the powers that be

It's always in the air
It's always in the air
And it always will be there
It's always in the air

It's not decisions made in city halls
It's not amusement parks or shopping malls
No, it's not the preachers when the tower falls
It's not the manipulated laws

(Repeat chorus)

It's in the answer no one ever knows....
It's in the orphan children no one chose....back to top
Turn the Other Way
Say everyone -- where's the love of yesteryear?
Say everyone -- ebbing waves of death and fear
Alleviate morality and kill our every dream of hope
Visualize with hallucinogens
And now who see must also grope

The Grapes of Wrath -- the prime vintage of our future
World leaders -- necromancers and masochists all
Contemplate our destinies
But they all will soon fall
With our greatest dance
At the Thermonuclear Ball

Yet with all of this
Another wave just takes its place
Search for freedom --
And the world just slaps your face
Yet what we do from day to day
All we ever do and say
Is take a look around
And Turn the Other Way....back to top
Knock It
You all feel large -- down there
You all feel large but you're looking small down there
You all feel large but you're looking small down there

It's hot so take your clothes off --
And get in your drawers

PUT YOUR HAMMER TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!
PUT YOUR HAMMUR TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!
PUT YOUR HAMMRE TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!
PUT YOUR HAMBER TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!
PUT YOUR HAAMER TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!
PUT YOUR HAMMRA TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!

For all you fellas that's knockin' your dong --
Don't let the girls go knockin' ya wrong
For all you fellas that's slappin' your prong --
Don't let the girls go slappin' ya wrong

Because it's hot so take your clothes off --
And get in your drawers

PUT YOUR HAMMER TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!
PUT YOUR HAMMUR TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!
PUT YOUR HAMMRE TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!

HAMMER TO THE WALLS
HAMMER TO THE WALLS
HAMMRA TO THE WALLS -- LET'S KNOCK IT!!!

For all you fellas just stretching it long
Don't let the girls go knockin' ya wrong
For all you fellas just kinging your kong --
Don't let the girls go knockin' ya wrong

BECAUSE IT'S HOT!!

PUT YOUR HAMMER TO THE WALLS BABY --
AND KNOCK YOUR GONG

IT'S A LITTLE OF THAT OLD DOODLELEEDO

"Simon Says" The Kingpin
Those lights could be shinin' bright for us and the rest of the boys
We'll own the root of all evil if we don't make any noise

If you're good like all the rest
Kingpin shows you all the best

SIMON SAYS THE KINGPIN
SIMON SAYS THE KINGPIN
YIPPIDY YIPPIDY
SIMON SAYS THE KINGPIN

Keep your eyes your mind shut and your mouth open wide
You'll be singing the blues because of them
While the anger builds up inside
Shinin' your shoes so I can be on top
But I just wanna flip you off
Cuz if you let me show expression
You'll be makin' a confession

FOINDIDIHOINDIDIFOINDIDIHOINDIDIHOINDIDI

You can reap the riches and be on your rockin' way
But if you wanna show what's in your heart
The big shot will put you in your grave
But if you wanna be good like all the rest
Kingpin shows you all the best
