Venus Loon
Oh yeah!
oooooooh!

gonna see my baby in the afternoon
gonna take my baby on a venus loon!

Slipshod Jim's been in my neighborhood
empty head steel bed
his tips 'is no good
all alone no telephone
to high vibe my room

gonna see my baby in the afternoon
gonna take my baby on a venus loon!

oh yeah!

been steep psychedelic
woman's head
gorging at my spokes
like the ghosts were dead
Adam had 'em and
puccini want my blues
but I'm

gonna see my baby in the afternoon
gonna take my baby on a venus loon!

oh my Venus Loon it will make you swoon
it will make you feel good
it will make you feel good
(2X)

first girl I ever loved
I don't recognized
her nose is smashed
her fingers bent
she's covered in flies
everyone I ever known
give love to my lover.....

oh my Venus Loon it will make you swoon
it will make you feel good
it will make you feel good

Sound Pit
man that's a dazzeler
heard you've so been sweet
stared at gazelle
this distractoin
I brought for her

I wondered why, oh why?

debra's a zebra
and the disgusting god
men its a palace
spend all night in paris, relax
I wondered why, oh why?

beep beep, beep beep-beep beep!
(3x)

metal gurus in the new
in my groove, yeah
telegram bought some land in the land
I wondered why

benefit the sadist
the cat in my alley
Don Starsong
minister of doom
in your tomb,
and I wonder why
Lord, I wonder why
I wonder why........back to top
Explosive Mouth
now I'm popping a few
in the morning dew
do the monkey wrench
all the birds adventures
the teenage night
and the vampires are right

and I want to lay my lips on
your explosive mouth

picked up Kenny
at an art deco date
from tulips he's a cat
with an automated hat
and I need to be free of all the
fantasies I hide in

and I want to lay my lips on
your explosive mouth

its a shame
for man too high
all the things
we do to survive
from this day

now I jump on your horse
and I gallop of course
and howl like a wolf
and drink up the sky
and I beat on my chest
just a punk off the ranch

but I want to lay my lips on your
explosive mouth

its a shame
for man too high
all the things
that I do to survive
from this dayback to top
Galaxy
which galaxy you are from
tell me how they bang a gong

your world
I'm in your world
(2x)

shadows in the alley at midnight
middle-class bob with the bad teeth

the world, I'm in the world
my world, I'm in my world

my man's like a angel with clipped wings
I can hear every dog when he sheds his sweetheart

the world, I mean my world
my world, I mean, the world

do they have sickness in society
to they have democratic entity?

your world, I'm in your world
your world, I'm in your world

Change
change change change
see it all the time
blue blue blue
I could write a book
about my life

baby blue
I love you
blue blue blue
I could write a book
about my life

change is coming just like the sun
change is coming you better run

baby blue
I love you
blue blue blue
I could write a book
about your life

change is coming just like the sun
change is coming you better run

Nameless Wildness
I wouldn't lie
4X

your like a sanctury
in poet's memory
(I wouldn't lie)

the universe of happiness
beneath your be-bop dress

and I love you....
and I love you....
your my nameless wildness

your like a precious ford
his stolen golden doors
(I wouldn't lie)
so deep your consciousness
volcano's in my breast

and I love you....
and I love you....
but your my nameless wildness

(guitar solos)
I wouldn't lie

cause I love you
and I love you....
your my nameless wildness

I wouldn't lie

Teenage Dream
what ever happened to the teenage dream?

surprise, surprise
the boys are home
my gaurdian angel
run down my telephone
the heats on, mister
can't you hear them scream,
what ever happened to the teenage dream?

the curfew comes
at the crack of night
the sad old wino
aches to dissapate the fright
the jet jump jiver
speeds past his machine, but
what ever happened to the teenage dream?

a broken god
from a musky world
sweetly mouth touched
him on its spur
his prison guards
were very hard to clean, but
what ever happened to the teenage dream?

do it, do it, do it to me babe
do it to me babe, aha!

what ever happened to the teenage dream?

the wizard of oz,
and the bums and theives
ruled my girl
with tuetonic teeth
but all was lost
when her mouth turned green
what ever happened to the teenage dream?

silver surfer
and the ragged kid
are all sad and rusted
ah, they don't have a gift
believe me Pope Paul,
my toes are clean
what ever happened to the teenage dream?

black is black
and white is white
some go to heaven
and some get it night
the bomb was a brute
but his winged screams......
what ever happened to the teenage dream?
yea ... aaaaaaaah

(song ends, turns to just
piano and Marc on guitar)

.....I'm talking teen agey woman,
I'm talking to you

Liquid Gang
he's gonna be glad
when you take the hand
of the liquid gang, oh yeah.....

peter, really, peter
he's such a messy eater
he's got frogs in his eyes
from telling those lies
so Sunday's almost Monday
you got to understand
its gonna be grand
when you take the hand
of the liquid gang, oh yeah.....

shelly silver belly
she's got me on the telly
damn little god
with the rockabilly, ya
those kids are young
but that's how it begun

you got to understand
when you take the hand
of the liquid gang, oh yeah.....

your gonna be, gonna be grand (2X)
your gonna be, gonna be glad (2X)

alligator heat with the dancing feat
rides a jewelled jump bike

but he has a light
but your out of sight

you got to understand
when you take the hand
of the liquid gang, oh yeah.....

your gonna be, gonna be glad (2X)

Carsmile Smith & The Old One
Carsmile Smith, he's the old one
Don't you know, that he's a good one?
don't cha, don't chat?
(2 X)

Bessie stood by the side of the grave
like a woman of love in her due
she hung her hands into another grief
for a man she never new

Carsmile Smith, he's the old one
Don't you know, that he's the good one?

You've Got To Jive To Stay Alive -- Spanish Midnight
you've got to jive, jive
to stay alive

I'm a silver stud
I hear your sticking up my heart
everything I do, I do for you
I'm a silver stud
I'm gonna stick it up in my heart
everything I do, I do for you

you've got to jive, jive
to stay alive

I'm a silver stud
I'm gonna stick it up my heart
everything I do, I do for you
(2X)

Spanish midnight,
all I want to do is love you tonight
4X
One more time.....

(note -- back in the mid-70's, "jive" often meant "agree with"
so this song takes on none of the meaning
we probably instantly assume it does in the 1990's)back to top
Interstellar Soul
Running around in the dawn
with that hat
I can see
I'm no match for you

and doing the foxtrot on yer knees
dog'gone girl
its so hard to contemplate you
because, your
so full of Interstellar Soul
(push it, push it)
so full of Interstellar Soul
(push it, push it)

that ring and just one cashmere
mmn, girl, but it's sculpted you
silk and diamonds gilded gauntlet
kinda weird,
but I'm scared to look at you
cause your
so full of Interstellar Soul
(push it, push it)
so full of Interstellar Soul
(push it, push it)

street head picked the tall queen
Girl, that's right, if that's your scene
but when the sunlight stings the streets
all your friends look like horror film fiends

cause your
so full of Interstellar Soul
(push it, push it!)
4X
oh yeah....
ummmm hummmm......
so full of Interstellar Soul
(push it, push it)
4X
lean on my head
kiss my knees
freeze me baby
bumble bee in my ear
I see a tear
but its solid gold
I don't want to get like you
oh oh...hmmmmmm
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
yeah, yeah, yeah!

The Avengers (Superbad)
Get this!
Superbad Tiger, running with your brain
tucked beneath your arms,
like a devil trade
when the angels from the heavens
meet the angels from the earth
you'll hid inside your cave, u-huh
that's right of course
and we know we'll explore with
all the angels

I known lots of ladies
and the ladies know me
I can foxy rocks of puncture
and I'm funky bone free
you can weedle
till you kiss me
with the honey from your mouth
cause believe me
I'm a bad noon boxer
I'll never come in your house
and we know we'll explore
with ore of angels!

Get this!
(guitar solo)
(8X)

Superbad Tiger, running with your brain
tucked beneath your arms,
like a devil trade
when the angels from the heavens
meet the angels from the earth
you'll hid inside your cave, u-huh,
that's right, of course
and we know we'll explode
with all of ages!
and we know we'll explode
with all of ages!

The Leopards (Featuring Gardenia & The Mighty Slugs)
we're the leopards
(sung during whole song in background)

the leader of our pack
lives down the local drain
king kong put a car
inside his brain
you tell me who's
the sexiest bud white?

Gardenia, and the Mighty Slugs

Old Doug Henry lost an ear
when he crossed my path
Called himself Jesus, well, that's what
he said to me
I never saw a freak
look as weird as you
'cept for

pscho mike-o grow
this screw disc in my brain
minsin quincy dropping bop-drops
down the drain
ah -- I'll tell you boy we're mean
and were tough
just like
Gardenia, and the Mighty Slugs

I know that we know that they know its wrong
to spend your life inside a song
greasy girly tried it and she licked it too
just like
Gardenia, and the Mighty Slugs

Uncle Bimbo drunk up
the Sea of Galilee
like a fool
he promised it all to me
but I'm young and built of steel
just like
Gardenia, and the Mighty Slugs
just like
Gardenia, and the Mighty Slugs
just like
Gardenia, and the Mighty Slugs

we're the Leopards.....
