Tenement Lady
Ow!
Tenement lady, stone drug mama
Street hawk stone heart
Mind that swiftly falls apart *

Sudden Sid Groove Lid, sharp as the dark park
Pickle pump peeper
Mind that swiftly falls apart

Count Lurch Hearse Head
Prince of the snick snacks
Got a pierced ear mind fear
of the sailors with their perfume
Molly Mouse dream talk, gin house milk shake
She steals my magazines
She's a lazer-lipped lover yeah!

* Repeat

Oh my darling there are many ways to love you
Underneath sheets of silk I slyly peep at you
People on the street call out your name
The giants and the dwarfs all call the same
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Oh my darling there are many ways to view you
To me your almost like a hammer and screw
People on the street call out your name
The giants and the dwarfs all call the same
Oh yeah, oh yeah ohback to top
Rapids
Your mama said, "clean out your head boy,
don't lay nothing on my child"
Your friends they said, "Your heads in a noose
boy lay some boogie on our minds"
And we stood like the rapids
and I was like a new born child
Your father said, "Clean out your head boy,
go and kick cans along the street"
Your father said "clean out your toes Rose
and go and lick some uncooked meat"
And we stood like the rapids
And I was like a new born child

Your mama said, "My babe is not free son,
but I'm loose about midnight"
Your father said, "Your sisters a groove boy,
what I said it just ain't right"
But then I stood like the rapids
And I was like a new born child
Won't you tell me why?back to top
Mister Mister
Oh yeah
Mister mister mister
I'm just looking for a change in my luck
Mister mister mister
I'm just looking for a change in my luck
Looking for a change

Baby baby baby
I'm just looking with my eye to the sky
Baby baby baby
I'm just looking with my eye to the sky
With my eye to the sky *

Looking, I'm gonna keep on looking babe
Keep on looking, I'm gonna keep on looking babe
For a change

Sister sister sister
I'm just looking for a change in my love
Sister sister sister
I'm just looking for a change in my love
Looking for a change.
*Repeat

Looking, I'm gonna keep on looking babe
Keep on looking, I'm gonna keep on looking babe
Looking I'm gonna keep on looking babe
Keep on looking, I'm gonna keep on looking babe

Dee-dee bom bom, de-de bom bom, dee-dee bom bom *

Broken Hearted Blues
This is a song, that I wrote when I was young
And I call it the broken-hearted blues
The air on that night was tempered like a knife
And the people wore the face masks of a clown
Don he was long, mis-shapen and forlorn
And his woman ran away without a smile
Days of the earth are unbroken changeless turf
But the faces of the men are something else

Jason Wind, as a boy, was a spacious sexual toy
But baby now he's a toothless baggy man
When the hills of the sun
Make you feel that you are young
Get good now and face your face into the wind
This is a song that I wrote when I was young
And I called it the Broken Hearted Bluesback to top
Shock Rock
Oh baby, pretty baby, oh baby you're my girl
Oh baby, pretty baby, oh baby you're my
You're my girl *

If you know how to rock
You don't have to shock
If you know how to rock
You don't have to shock **

*Repeat
**Repeat twiceback to top
Country Honey
Take me down to the country honey
Take me down to the country honey
In a jeep that's sweet
In a jeep that's neat
Take me down to the country honey

Take me down to the seaside baby
Take me down to the seaside baby
In a jeep that's neat
In a jeep that's sweet
Take me down to the country honey

Take me down, oh take me down
In a jeep, in a jeep that's sweet
Take me down, oh take me down
In a jeep that's, in a jeep that's neatback to top
Electric Slim And The Factory Hen
On the street, people call you a foxy girl
Me, I'm loose, like a golden goose
You can have my juice

Steady on soldier
Watch what your doing to my girl
Steady on soldier
Watch what your doing to my girl *

Electric Slim and the Factory Hen
Man they ain't my kind
At dead of night, like a fiery kite
You've been on my mind

*Repeat

Frozen feet on a winter street man
Man that ain't your fate
Greased in the sun, California fun
Man that's more my style

*Repeat twiceback to top
Mad Donna
I'm a foxy man, don't you understand
Would take a rocket ship to let me
get my thighs on you

I'm gonna change Mad Donna
I'm gonna change Mad Donna
I'm gonna change Mad Donna, for you*

In a coach of blue, I'm gonna love you too
Like the gods of old, I'm gonna
get my teeth in you

* Repeat

I'm gonna change

I'm a foxy man, don't you understand
Like the gods of old, I'm gonna
get my mouth on you

* Repeat x 3back to top

Life Is Strange

People come and people go

The Street And Babe Shadow
Tiger tim, the tightrope walker
Tried to steal, the dragons daughter
Babe, I do mean, babe

Menace lurks in houses only
Where the hearts are fat and bony
Babe, I do mean babe

Golden risks and folly's rainbow
Down Ihe drain where all the time goes Babe
I do mean babe

Frozen Joe, the ballet boxer
Chromed his toes to get his rocks off
Babe, I do mean babe

All the rats and all the peacocks
Built a ship and flew to Venus
Babe, I do mean babe

Pain is meat and meat is people
Your head's a house, your soul the steeple Babe, I
do mean babe

Painted toes and purple earlobes
Life's a gas but it's such a scene though
Babe, I do mean babe

Shake

Babe, I do mean babe
I could tell you something
I could tell you something
Babe, I do mean babeback to top
Highway Knees
She could have laid
Could have stayed on the highway
I could have loved her, O yes I could
Her children stayed
Could have played, on the highway
I could have known them, O yes I could *

On my knees, I'm begging please **

* Repeat
** Repeat x 3back to top
Left Hand Luke
Call yourself a friend,
and look me in the eye
I'll unstrap my knees and I'll apologise
'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke
and the Beggar Boys
O yes we are *
Ain't no neighbours upon our hill
'Cept Slight Thigh Be-Bop and Old Gumbo Jill But
I'm Left Hand Luke and the Beggar Boys
O yes we are

Ain't nobody's someone
and it hurts deep inside
Just call us taxi Mama
and we'll take you for a ride
'Cos I'm Left Hand Luke and the Beggar Boys
O yes we are

Wow

Left Hand Luke and the Beggar Boys
O yes we are

Myxomatosis is an animal's disease
But I got so shook up Mama
that it ate away my knees
And I'm Left Hand Luke and the Beggar Boys
O yes we are

Ain't had no money Lord, but it's plain to see
If you had some silver Mister
how much would you pay for me?
'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke and the Beggar Boys
O yes we are

*Repeat

No one's gonna fool me baby
