Mideast Vacation
Mideast vacation

I used to watch highway patrol
Whittlin' with my knife
But the thought never struck me
I'd be black and white for life
I was raised on law and order
I a community of strife
Became a restless boarder
And I never took a wife.

I went lookin' for khaddafi
Aboard air force one
But I never did find him
And the c.i.a. said son,
You'll never be a hero
Your flyin' days are done
It's time for you to go home now
Stop sniffin' that smokin' gun.

I was travellin' with my family
In the mideast late one night
In the hotel all was quiet
The kids were out like little lights
Then the street was filled with jeeps
There was an explosion to the right
They chanted death to america
I was feelin' like a fight.

So I ran downstairs
And out into the street
Someone kicked me in the belly
Someone else kissed my feet
I was rambo in the disco
I was shootin' to the beat
When they burned me in effigy
My vacation was complete.back to top
Long Walk Home
If you see liberty tell her I will
Buy her windows on the hill
Laud her flowers on the sill
Till they grow higher and higher.

If liberty was a little girl
Watching all the flags unfurl
Standing at the big parade
How would she like us now?

We balance the power
From hour to hour
Giant guns rage
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home.

From vietnam to old beirut
If we are searching for the truth
Why do we feel that double-edged blade
Cutting through our hand.

America, america
Where have we gone?
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home.

We balance the power
From hour to hour
Giant guns rage
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home
It's such a long walk home.back to top
Around the World
Boy and girl fall in love
Dreamin' under stars above
Meanwhile push comes to shove
Around the world.

Leaders fall, leaders rise
Terror wears a thin disguise
Not much room for compromise
Around the world.

Surfers from seven seas
Sharing with the submarines
Experts count war machines
Around the world.

People sweat in planted fields
Students study what is real
Someone builds a laser shield
Around the world.

Fashion change, style change
Fashion change, style change
Fashion change, style change.

Hey! what's that you got on?
You're sure looking good tonight!
Where'd you pick that up anyway?
Wow! you're looking beautiful!
Hey! you are somethin' else tonight, so skin tight.
Yeah! come on, lets go out! come on!

Why do we have to hate
Why do we incinerate
Why don't we illuminate
Around the world.

Why don't we illuminate
Why don't we illuminate
Around the world.back to top
Inca Queen
Once there was an inca queen
She gazed at her sundial
All around her workers raised
Golden idols to her smile
The waiting years weren't hard to see
Behind the tears of mercury.

She spoke of silver from the sky
And many floating safety boats
To pick them up when they would fly
Far above their dreams and hopes
And they a mountain city raised
Where their queen above the clouds
Could watch out.

Inca queen has, inca queen has, inca queen has come
Inca queen has, inca queen has, inca queen has come.

Out in the jungle the drums were heard: inca queen has come
From the biggest elephant to the smallest bird: inca queen has come
She spoke of silver from the sky, inca queen has come
To pick them up when they would fly, inca queen has come.

Once there was an inca queen
She gazed at her sundial
All around her workers raised
Golden idols to her smile
And though the air was thin and cold
Soon the day would come the queen had told.

Inca queen has, inca queen has, inca queen has come.back to top
Too Lonely
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.

I got a key chain
Good luck charm
I drive a fast car
Got a strong arm.

Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.

She's got the big lips
She's got the tight dress
Working for a big tip
She don't go for less.

She's too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.

She wears a fur coat
She's got a gold ring
Comes from a good home
Lookin' for a new thing.

She's too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love
Too lonely, too lonely
Too lonely to fall in love.back to top
Prisoners of Rock 'N' Roll
People tell us that we play to loud
But they don't know what our music's about
We never listen to the record company man
They try to change us and ruin our band.

That's why we don't wanna be good
That's why we don't wanna be good
We're prisoners of rock and roll.

When were jammin' in our old garage
The girls come over and it sure gets hot
We don't wanna be watered down
Takin' orders from record company clowns.

That's why we don't wanna be good
That's why we don't wanna be good
We're prisoners of rock and roll.

We're prisoners of rock and roll.back to top
Cryin' Eyes
Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?
Who's gonna wake you up to that big surprise?
Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?

You say that all your life you've been a free bird
There's been nobody over you
And you always have to have the last word
Because one feels better than two.

Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?
Who's gonna wake you up to that big surprise?
Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?

You say your life's like riding on a fast train
It's easy to see far away
But right up close it's just a blurry haze
Flyin' by from day to day.

Who's gonna dry your cryin' eyes?back to top
When Your Lonely Heart Breaks
When your lonely heart breaks
Don't sit counting your mistakes
Don't be waiting for love to come back
Don't be wastin' time
Don't be lost in crime
When your lonely heart breaks
When your lonely heart breaks.

What's your problem, she's gone
You're still movin', movin' on
You got memories, she got strong
There's a lot of things
That aren't gone
When your lonely, lonely heart breaks
When your lonely heart breaks.

When your lonely heart breaks
Don't be cryin' for good times you had
When your lonely heart breaks.

When your lonely heart breaks
Don't sit counting your mistakes
Don't be waiting for love to come back
Don't be wastin' time
Don't be lost in crime
When your lonely, lonely heart breaks
When your lonely, lonely heart breaks
When your lonely heart breaks.back to top
We Never Danced
Between heaven and earth
There's a ballroom floor
Where the couples glide
In the evermore.

Floating through the clouds
Dancing in the rain
Eyes that see no lies
Hearts that feel no pain.

Hope it's not too late
We were more than friends
I can hardly wait
'til we meet again.

If you don't really know
Where you want to go
It makes no difference
Which road you take.

Hope it's not too late
We were more than friends
I can hardly wait
'til we meet again.

We never danced
We never danced
We never danced the night away.

We never danced
We never danced
We never danced the night away.back to top
