Betterman
Tabbed by The Smiling Penguin

Betterman I am since I
Come into contact with you
And you taught so many things about myself
and you know this is true
but now we are apart and its all my fault
cos you know I need to be alone
Don't know myself
so how can I share me with you girl or anyon e

Don't want to be a thorn in your side
good woman
Always be the one
to make you cry
Don't wanna be that guy
Good woman
cos you deserve everything
and I got nothing so leave me
and i'll go away better off I stay
Far from you,
because you are beautiful

BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

Now typical man
I am because you think
I want my cake and eat it too
Cos say I can't be in a relationship
but I still feel for you
Cos you are the best woman
This old man has ever met
You taught me about my soul
you shared with me your magic

Don't want to be a thorn in your side
good woman
Always be the one
to make you cry
Don't wanna be that guy
Good woman
cos you deserve everything
and I got nothing so leave me
and i'll go away better off I stay
Far from you,
because you are beautiful

Betterman I am since I
Come into contact with you
And you taught
so many things about myself
and you know this is true
but now we are apart and its all my fault
cos you know I need to be alone
Don't know myself
so how can I share me with you girl
or anyone
Cause you are

BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL WOMAN…
BETTER MAN I AM COS OF YOU...back to top
Attitude
-Tabbed by The Smiling Penguin-


Hey man why you always give me Attitude?
What I, what I ever Done to you?
If you got a bone to Pick
Step outside step Outside talk about it

But I talk with words man
I don't talk with my fists
I'm sick of all this aggression
Hell you know I've had enough of it
But I don't mean to Offend you
So tell me if I have tell me if I have
Don't give me attitude
Don't you give me attitude

Hey man why you always laughing at me?
What's so, what's so funny?
Cos take a look in the mirror say now what do you see?
You are just, you are just like me

And I'm easy going
I listen to what you gotta say
And if i was wrong, if i was wrong
I'd say sorry.
Cause i don't mean,
No I don't mean to offend you
I got my own Demons
Don't need bad karma too

Cos truth is the only way
So express what you're feelin
Say what you've gotta say
Without blaming, without blaming.back to top
Pickapart
by John Butler Trio
~Tabbed by The Smiling Penguin~

So there aint no need to pickapart me
Cause what you get aint what you see
I said a little fucked up, a little crazy
But there aint no need to pickapart me

Going down the road nobody gonna get in my way
Nothing gonna stop old me from finding myself a new day
And as long as I don't hurt no one, I don't be hurting no one I still say
Nothing gonna stop old me from finding myself a new day
I said and nothing going to stop me or you
Hell no...

So there aint no need to pickapart me
Cause what you get aint what you see
I said a little fucked up, a little crazy
But there aint no need to pickapart me

I got four hail marys flying over my head
Trying to make me sad everyday
Gonna shot those little motherfuckers down
With my positive artillery
Cause it doesn't really matter who you listen to or who
Ya gonna believe
I said nothing really stopping me or anybody else
From going and being free
Nothing gonna stop you
Or me hell no
No nothing gonna stop me or you. Hell noback to top
Money
John Butler Trio- Money
-Tabbed by The Smiling Penguin-


Well I hope you find your way
Through every heart wrenching day
With all those shitty decisions that you make
Hell I know the games, I know the games you play

So do you think you got enough time
To open all of your uranium mines
Before yes you go and you poison us all
You know your profit man it's gonna take its toll

And I don't know who you are
I don't know where you come from
I just know it is to hell you're going cos
You pollute everything with you big business
And i know it's all for your money
Hell yeah, all for your money
All for your money
Tell me man it's all for your money

So go now you go and you rape this Earth
You take her for what you think she'd worth
But you take and you take and you take til there's nothing left
I don't call that business, I call that theft

So who do the Hell do you think you are
Why do you got to take things so far
You know you screw the Earth and then you look towards the stars
Tell me man why do you got to take things so far

And I don't know who you are
I don't know where you come from
I just know it is to hell you're going cos
You ruin everything with you big business
And i know it's all for your money

All for your money
Sweeter than honey
All for your Money
Tell me man can you eat your money
Tell me man can you eat your money
Cos that's what's gonna be left, that's what's gonna be left
So tell me man can you eat your money

Business man with your uranium mine,
will you gain a conscience
Politician man, there in your Government,
will you gain a conscience
Media man with all your newspapers,
Who lies must gain a conscience
Prime Minister with all our apathy,
will you GAIN A CONSCIENCE!back to top
Believe
Theres no need to cry
Just hold your head up high
All you got to do is Believe...
In your self
Cos there will be no-one else
Who will ever leave...
You alone anymore
Cos in yourself you be sure
in who you'd be...
Exactly who you are
Cos you could go so far
All you got to do is believe...

Take sometime with yourself
Think about something else
If you cannot be thankful
for what you got
Cos take a look around
It is all so beautiful
So what the hell is there to worry about?
Worry about, worry about...

There's no need to worry
Run around in your scurry
All you got to do is believe...
In the universe
Cos this man it always works
All you got to do is release...
All your expectations
In any situation
All you got to do is see...
That it's all taking place
In it's own grace
All you got to do is believe

Take sometime with yourself
Think about something else
If you cannot be thankful
for what you got
Cos take a look around
It is all so beautiful
So what the hell is there to worry about?
Worry about, worry about...back to top
Media
-Tabbed by The Smiling Penguin-


What you watch, what you read
What you percieve is to be truth
It is all so subjective
So what you believe is up to you

But what are we to believe in
Between the lies and the truth? Youth
Media has vested interest
So what you believe is up to you.

But how are we to make sense of these turbulent times
When all they do is censor our minds
Only telling what they want us to know
Only half of the story told

So what is wrong? What is right?
No truth can there be seen
Well it's all there in your new religion
Just turn on your TV screen

Watch the sex and drugs and all that violence
Look what they are feeding you
Propaganda yes indeed its,
its all there to confuse

But how are we to make sense of these turbulent times
When all they do is brainwash our minds
Only telling what they want us to know
Only half of the story told

And if the truth can't be found
I'll find my own underground
And if the truth is never to be seen
I'll find my own in between


What you watch, what you read
What you percieve is to be truth
It is all so subjective
So what you believe is up to you

But what are we to believe in
Between the lies and the truth? Youth
Media has vested interest
So what you believe is up to you.
You know its up to you
Don't believe the lies, read between the lines,
Don't believe the lies, critically analyseback to top

What goes up
They say is coming down
I got my head in the sky
And my roots in the ground
I'm not patriotic man
For what it's worth
I pledge allegiance to this land
And my Mother Earth

What I am
I said is what I be
I be damned if you cut down all those trees
Clearfelling all this good land.
I do see
We'll all be damned if you cut down all those trees
What I am
I said is what I am
I be damned if I stone cold killa man
In the name of a flag
A patriotic game
You got blood on your hands it ain't me to blame

Take
-Tabbed by The Smiling Penguin-



Take, take what you want,
Take it all, i know you want my soul
And feel, what you want me to feel
But i will only conceal just a little more
From you
You're all alone, you're all alone
And you draggin everyone in
All alone and you don't even understand
Don't even understand

So i'll obey, listen to what you say
Cos you are in full control now
But you're so scared, so scared of losing it all somehow
You're all alone, you're all alone
And you draggin everyone in
All alone and you don't even understand
Don't even understand

See if you don't got the time to show just a little respect
You won't get any in return
And if you don't got time to have an open ear
You won't have anything to learn

Don't know why you don't even understand
Don't know why you don't even understand
Don't know why you don't even understandback to top
Don't Understand
By John Butler Trio
~Tabbed By The Smiling Penguin~

Did you ever stop to think about whatcha gonna do
With your responsibility?
Or did you,
Just take this job cause it would
Be good for the money
And did you
Ever stop to think
About your duty to mankind
Or did you,
Think ya take this job do favours
For you friends and waste all our time?
So tell me man
Do you realize what you're doing to this good country?
Cause you're selling it all away for your economic
Stability
And you,
Justify everything you do
With the people that you say you're gonna employ
But the unemployment line is getting bigger every year
And you treat us all like toys.
We're just expendable to you
Along now with this land
And there ain't no room left for empathy
And this is something I don't understand
Don't make no sense to me
Justifying everything we do on our economy
And there ain't no room
No more room left for human decency
Justifying everything we do on our economy
And the only time you listen to the people
Is when you think you won't get their vote
Otherwise you really could not give a shit
Don't mind rockin all our boats
And the greatest living friend is a man who goes by
The name of apathy
And we let you get away with everything you like so
You make all your money
But I tell you something right now old man
And this is a fair old warning to you
That the people are waking up
And gonna make you accountable too
Just like the nazi trials in Nuremburg
Hell not so long ago
Gonna make you pay for what you have done
Gonna make you responsible
Cause I don't understand
don't understand
don't understand
what head space you are in
so it must be lies you're speaking
and the land that you love he could not give a damn
about
and the ocean that you love do you think he could give
a fuck about?
And the family that you love do you think he could give
A damn about?back to top
