Mexican Wine
Fountians of Wayne - Mexican Wine




Verse 1:
He was killed by a cellular phone explosion,
They scattered his ashes across the ocean,
The water was used to make baby lotion,
The winds of commition were seven to notion.

Chorus:
But the sun still shines in the summer time,
I'll be yours if you'll be mine,
I tried to change but I changed me mind,
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican Wine.

Verse 2:
She lived alone in a small apartment,
Across the street from the health department,
She left her pills in the glove conpartment,
That was the end of where her heart went.

Chorus:
But the sun still shines in the summer time,
I'll be yours if you'll be mine,
I tried to change but I changed me mind,
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican Wine.
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican Wine.

Verse 3:
I used to fly for Americn Airlines,
Then I got fired for reading High Times,
My lisence exspired in almost notime,
Now I'm retired and I thiink that's fine.

Chorus:
But the sun still shines in the summer time,
I'll be yours if you'll be mine,
I tried to change but I changed me mind,
Think I'll have another glass of Mecian Wine.
Because the sun still shines in the summer time,
I'll be yours if you'll be mine,
I tried to change but I changed me mind,
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican Wine.
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican Wine.
Won't you have have another glass of Mexican Wine?back to top
Bright Future in Sales
Fountians of Wayne - Bright Future in Sales




Verse 1:
Sleeping on a planer at Port Authority,
Waiting for my bus to come,
Seven scotch-and-sodas at the office party,
Now I don't remember where I'm from.
I think I had a black wallet,
In my back pocket,
With a bus tickect,
And a picture of my baby inside,
And If make it home alive...

Chorus:
I'm going to get my shit together,
Cause I can't live like this forever,
You know I've come too far and I don't want to fail,
I got a new computer,
And a bright future in sales,
Yeah, yeah,
A bright future in sales,
Yeah, yeah.

Verse 2:
Heading for the airport on a misty morning,
Gonna catch a flight to Baltimore,
Try to kill an hour with a whiskey sour,
If there's time I might have one more,
I gotta do some quick reading,
For the big meeting,
But my head is spinning and I cant quite open my eyes,
As long as I don't have to drive...


Chorus:
I'm going to get my shit together,
Cause I can't live like this forever,
You know I've come too far and I don't want to fail,
I got a new computer,
And a bright future in sales,
Yeah, yeah,
A bright future in sales,
Yeah, yeah.

Verse 3:
I had a line on a brand new account,
But I can't seem to find,
Where i wrote that number down,
I tryto focus, I'm starring at the screen,
Pretending that I know,
What all these little flashing lights mean,
I gotta do some quick reading,
For the big meeting,
But my head is spinning and I cant quite open my eyes,
I gotta do some quick reading,
For the big meeting,
But my head is spinning and I cant quite open my eyes,
As long as I don't have to drive...

Chorus:
I'm going to get my shit together,
Cause I can't live like this forever,
You know I've come too far and I don't want to fail,
I got a new computer,
And a bright future in sales,
Yeah, yeah,
A bright future in sales,

Hackensack
Fountians of Wayne - Hackensack




Verse 1:
I used to know you when we were young,
You were in all my dreams,
We sat together in Period One,
Fridays at eight fifteen,
Now I see your face in the strngest places,
Movies and magazines,
I saw you talking to Christopher Walken,
On my TV screen.

Chorus:
But I will wait for you,
As long as I need to,
And if you ever get back to Hackensack,
I'll be there for you.

Verse 2:
I used to work in a record store,
Now I work for my dad,
Scraping the paint off hardwood floors,
The horus are pretty bad,
Sometimes I wonder where you are,
Probalby in L.A.,
That seems to be where everyone else,
Ends up these days.

Chorus:
But I will wait for you,
As long as I need to,
And if you ever get back to Hackensack,
I'll be there for you,
And I will wait for you,
As long as I need to,
And if you ever get back to Hackensack,
I'll be there for you.
If you ever get back to Hackensack,
I'll be there for you.back to top
No Better Place
Is that supposed to be your poker face
Or was someone run over by a train
And you were minding your own business
But you're begging for forgiveness just the same
And it's running back and forth inside your mind
Just how that town defined you
Dressed you up, painted on your face

And now you're leaving New York
For no better place

You're awake and trying not to be
Wrapped around your pillow like a prawn
And the nighttime's wrapped around you
Will be until it drops you on the dawn
From the C train to the shiny tower
Kicked around till happy hour found you
Where you can drink that smirk right off your face

And now you're leaving New York
For no better place

And here is your reflection
In a building uptown
A ghost inside some Madison Avenue display
Like water under bridges
You're slowly passing by
As you sail between the rooftops and the sky

And the bourbon sits inside me
Right now I'm a puppet in its sway
And it may be the whiskey talking
But the whiskey says I miss you every day

So i taxi to an all-night party
Park me in the corner in an old chair
Sip my drink and stare out into space

And now you're leaving New York
For no better place
And now you're leaving New York
For no better placeback to top
Valley Winter Song
Hey Sweet Annie
Don't take it so bad
You know the summer's coming soon
Though the interstate is choking under salt and dirty sand
And it seems the sun is hiding from the moon

Your daddy told you
When you were a girl
The kind of things that come to those who wait
So give it a rest girl
Take a deep breath girl
And meet me at the Bay State tonight

And the snow is coming down
On our New England town
And it's been falling all day long
What else is new
What could i do
I wrote a valley winter song
To play for you

And late December
Can drag a man down
You feel it deep in your gut
Short days and afternoons spent pottering around
In a dark house with the windows painted shut

Remember New York
Staring outside
As reckless winter made its way
From Staten Island to the Upper West Side
Whiting out our streets along the way

And the snow is coming down \
On our New England town \
And it's been falling all day long \
What else is new repeat 2x
What could i do /
But sing this valley winter song /
I wrote for you /back to top
All Kinds of Time
The clock's running down
The team's losing ground
To the opposing defense
The young quarterback
Waits for the snap
when suddenly it all starts to make sense

he's got all kinds of time(x2)
all kinds of time
He's got all kinds of time
all kinds of time

he takes a step back
he's under attack
but he knows that no one can touch him now
he seems so at ease
strange and appeased

he's got all kinds of time(x2)
all kinds of time
He's got all kinds of time
all kinds of time

he thinks of his mother
he thinks of his bride to be
he thinks of his father
his two younger brothers
gathered around the widescreen tv

he looks to the left
he looks to the right
and then in a golden ray of light
is his open man
just like he planned
the whole world is his tonight

he's got all kinds of time(x2)
all kinds of time
He's got all kinds of time
all kinds of timeback to top
Little Red Light
Sitting in traffic on the Tappan Zee
Fifty million people out in front of me
Trying to cross the water but it just might be a while
Rain's coming down I can't see a thing
Radio's broken so I'm whistling
New York to Nyack feels like a hundred miles

It's not right
It's not fair
I'm still a mess
And you still don't care
I go to work
I come back home
But you're still gone
And I'm still alone
And the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
On my big black plastic Japanese cordless phone
Oh no
Oh no

Stuck in a meeting on a Monday night
Trying to get the numbers to come out right
I'm getting tired, think I just might need a drink
And as I'm reaching in the bottom drawer
I'm dreaming 'bout the way it was before
Life was so easy I never really had to think

It's not right
It's not fair
I'm still a mess
And you still don't care
I go to sleep
When I wake up
The pain sets in
And it never stops
And the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
On the desktop mailbox of my big black laptop
Oh no

It's not right
It's not fair
I'm still a mess
And you still don't care
I go to work
I come back home
But you're still gone
And I'm still alone
And the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
No, no the little red light's not blinking
On my big black Radio Shack digital portable phone
Oh no
Oh no

Hey Julie
Working all day for a mean little man
With a clip-on tie and a rub-on tan
He's got me running round the office like a dog around a track
But when I get back home you're always there to rub my back

Hey Julie
Look what they're doing to me
Trying to trip me up
Trying to wear me down
Julie I swear it's so hard to bear it
And I'd never make through without you around
No I'd never make through without you around

Hours on the phone making pointless calls
I got a desk full of paper that means nothing at all
Sometimes I catch myself staring into space
Counting down the hours till I get to see your face

Hey Julie
Look what they're doing to me
Trying to trip me up
Trying to wear me down
Julie I swear it's so hard to bear it
And I'd never make through without you around
No I'd never make through without you around

How did it come to be
That you and I must be
Far away from each other every day?
Why must I spend my time
Filling up my mind
With facts and figures that never add up anyway?
They never add up anyway

Working all day for a mean little guy
With a bad toupee and a soup-stained tie
He's got me running round the office like a gerbil on a wheel
He can tell me what to do but he can't tell me what to feel

Hey Julie
Look what they're doing to me
Trying to trip me up
Trying to wear me down
Julie I swear it's so hard to bear it
And I'd never make through without you around
No I'd never make through without you around
No I'd never make through without you aroundback to top
Halley's Waitress
Halley's waitress
never comes around
She's hiding in the kitchen
She's nowhere to be found
I just want some coffee
Is that too much to ask?
Halley's waitress
is not up to the task

And when she finally appears
It's like she's been away for years

It's been so long
So long
Darling don't you know
We miss you when you're gone
So long
So long
Darling don't you know
We miss you when you're gone
Ahhh

Halley's waitress
Has vanished once again
She's talking to her agent
She's calling all her friends
Forget about the coffee
I'll just take a check
Halley's waitress
You know you'll get yours yet

It's been so long
So long
Darling don't you know
We miss you when you're gone
So long
So long

We miss you when you're gone

Hung Up on You
While I down Kentucky bourbon
I am waiting for a call
And the moon and stars tonight
Are playing shadows on the wall

With the moon the way it is, dear
Would you answer out of spite
Or are you feeling lonely tonight

Cause I remember last time
We were out under the stars
Driving crooked down the highway
Drinking beer in roadside bars

And now and then I wonder
Why this painful memory
Can never find its way to you from me

And I can't dial the phone just now
Even though I know your number
Can't bring my broken heart to be untrue
Like you did today
You'll say goodbye the same old way
Ever since you hung up on me
I'm hung up on you

Well the house I'm ringing up from
Is a half a mile from you
But with the reception I'm getting
Might as well be Timbuktu

And behind the door of your home
Is a strange and foreign land
Where you speak a language I don't understand

And I can't dial the phone just now
Even though I know your number
Can't bring my broken heart to be untrue
Like you did today
You'll say goodbye the same old way
Ever since you hung up on me
I'm hung up on you

Now I'm going down to Jimmy's bar
Like a thousand other times
With an appetite for poison
And a suitcase full of dimes

And I'll wait there by the payphone
With one hundred other guys
With those sorry hung-up teardrops in our eyes

And I can't dial the phone just now
Even though I know your number
Can't bring my broken heart to be untrue
Like you did today
You'll say goodbye the same old way
Ever since you hung up on me
I'm hung up on youback to top
Fire Island
too bad this wasn't tabbed already, but i guess the responsibility falls to me to add it to the list.

driving on the lawn,
sleeping on the roof,
drinking all the alchohol,
all the kids from school
will be naked in the pool,
while our parents are on
fire island.

cranking up the tunes
till the windows break
feeding chocolate to the dog
jumping on the couch
till the feathers all come out
while our parents are on
fire island.

we're old enough by now,
to take care of each other.
we don't need no babysitter,
we don't need no father or mother
we're old enough by now, don't worry about a thing
don't you remember
last december when you went to steamboat springs

we're old enough by now,
to take care of each other.
we don't need no babysitter,

Peace and Love
Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby
Peace and love

Riding around in a Volkswagen van
Thinking 'bout the people upside-down in Japan
Staring at the stars in a distant galaxy
Wondering if there's someone out there staring back at me singing

Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby
Peace and love

Lying on the floor just playing my guitar
Trying to find the chords for "Just The Way You Are"
Plane crash flashing on my TV
Well it could have been you, baby
It could have been me

We'll never live forever
But baby things could be worse
Cause when we get together we are one with the Universe

Sometimes I think I might just move up to Vermont
Open a bookstore or a vegan restaurant
Got crazy karma, never harmed a single soul
So if you want to join me then together we'll grow old singing

Peace and love

That's all I'm thinking of baby

Bought for a Song
Come on, now get your ass out of bed
You heard what the man said
The crew is already gone
We were all kinda high, but man what were you on?

Tried to take a shuttle to Spain
They kicked me off the plane
I guess I'll go to Japan
It all looks the same when you stump for the man

And down in the valley we crawl in the alley
Who knew the 101 was so long?
Before you get sold, you get bought for a song

Sake in aluminum cans
It fell in the wrong hands
And now we're chewing the scene
Stumbling out of the Lexington Queen

Walking through a German hotel
And not walking very well
I gotta get to the van
Excuse me, I'm weaving as fast as I can

And Tom won't admit he got lost in the city
He's saying that the directions are wrong
Before you get sold, you get bought for a songback to top
Supercollider
Multi-colored microbus
Plowing over rugged terrain
We're jacking the radio
Passing the afternoon train
Around the roses she showed us
Hyacinths and sage
Gold plated garden tools
Sunlamps and it's all the rage

Stay low to the ground or they'll sniff you out
You never know what you will find
When you go

Out of the blackness
Into the great big sky
Supercollider
Shooting inside your mind

Gather round the gas tower
Don't it kinda look like a bong
I heard it backwards
Hidden in a Pink Floyd song
Stella Radiata
It's got to set your mind at ease
Spinning on the tire swing
Flying like Tarzan through the trees

And back to the bus when the sun goes down
Try to aim it back into town
We're riding

Out of the blackness
Into the great big sky
Supercollider
Shooting inside your mind
And coriander grows along the banks where we go walking along at night
Creeping slowly over the ground
We tiptoe round the garden
Trying not to tramp it down

Stay low to the ground or they'll sniff you out
You never know what you will find
When you go

Out of the blackness
Into the great big sky
Supercollider
Shooting inside your mindback to top
Yours and Mine
In about an hour
The sunlight's gonna fade
And you and me will divvy up the wine
Like everything else here
Yours and mine

Picking up the paper
Coffee's been made
It's Book Review and Face the Nation Time
Two in the same mind
Yours and Mineback to top
