Horses
I got me some horses to ride on to ride on
They say that your demons can't go there
So I got me some horses to ride on to ride on
As long as your army keeps perfectly still

And maybe I'll find me a sailor a tailor
And maybe together we'll make mother well
So I got me some horses to ride on to ride on
As long as your army keeps perfectly still
You showed me the meadow and milkwood and silkwood
And you would if I would but you never would
So I chased down your posies your pansies in my hosies
Then opened my hands and they were empty then

Off with superfly sniffing a sharpie pen
Honey it's bill and ben
Off with superfly counting your bees
Oh me honey like one two three
The camera is rolling
It's easy like one two three

And if there is a way to find you
I will find you
But will you find me if neil
Makes me a tree an afro a pharaoh
I can't go you said so
And threads that are golden don't break easily

So I got me some horses to ride on to ride on
They say that your demons can't go there
So I got me some horses to ride on to ride on
As long as your army keeps perfectly still
Keeps perfectly still
Keeps perfectly stillback to top
Blood Roses
Blood roses
Blood roses
Back on the street now
Blood roses
Blood roses
Back on the street now
Can't forget the things you never said
On days like these starts me thinking

When chickens get a taste of your meat
Chickens get a taste of your meat

You gave him your blood
And your warm little diamond
He likes killing you after you're dead
You think I'm a queer
I think you're a queer
I think you're a queer
I think you're a queer

I shaved every place where you been boy
I shaved every place where you been yes

God knows I know I've thrown away those graces

The belle of new orleans tried to show me
Once how to tango
Wrapped around your feet
Wrapped around like good little roses

Blood roses
Blood roses
Back on the street now
Blood roses
Blood roses
Back on the street now
Now you've cut out the flute
From the throat of the loon
At least when you cry now
He can't hear you
When chickens get a taste of your meat
Come on come on come on come on
When he sucks you deep
Sometimes you're nothing but meatback to top
Father Lucifer
Father lucifer you never looked so sane
You always did prefer the drizzle to the rain
Tell me that you're still in love with that milkmaid
How the lizzies
How's your jesus christ been hanging

Nothing's gonna stop me from floating
Nothing's gonna stop me from floating

He says he reckons I'm a watercolour stain
He says I run and then I run from him and then I run
He didn't see me watching from the aeroplane
He wiped a tear and then he threw away our appleseed

Nothing's gonna stop me from floating
Nothing's gonna stop me from floating

Everyday's my wedding day
Though baby's still in his comatose state
I'll dye my own easter eggs
Don't go yet
And beenie lost the sunset but that's ok
Does joe bring flowers to marilyn's grave
And girls that eat pizza and never gain weight

Father lucifer you never looked so sane
You always did prefer the drizzle to the rain
Tell me that you're still in love with that milkmaid
How the lizzies
How's your jesus christ been hangingback to top
Professional Widow
Slag pit stag shit
Honey bring it close to my lips yes
Don't blow those brains yet
We gotta be big boy
We gotta be big
Starfucker just like my daddy
Starfucker just like my daddy yes
Selling his baby
Just like my daddy
Gonna strike a deal
Make him feel like a congressman
Runnin in the family
Runnin in the family

Rest your shoulders peaches and cream
Everywhere a judas as far as you can see
Beautiful angel calling
'we got every re-run of muhammad ali'

Prism perfect
Honey bring it close to your lips yes
What is termed a landslide of principle
Proportion boy it better be big boy
Starfucker just like my daddy
Starfucker just like my daddy
Sellin his baby just like my daddy
Gonna strike a deal
Make him feel like a congressman
It runs in the family
Runnin in the family

Mr. Zebra
Hello mr zebra
Can I have your sweater
Cause it´s cold cold cold
In my hole hole hole
Ratatouille strychnine
Sometimes she´s a friend of mine
With a gigantic whirlpool
That will blow your mind

Hello mr zebra
Ran into some confusion with a mrs crocodile
Furry musselsmarchinfg on
She thinks she´s kaiser wilhelm
Or a civillised syllabub
To blow your mind
Figure it out
She´s a goodtime fella
She´s got a little fund to fight for moneypenny´s rights
Figure it out
She´s a goodtime fella
Too bad the burial was premature she said
And smiledback to top
Marianne
Tuna rubber
A little blubber in my igloo
And I knew you pigtails and all
Girls when they fall

And they say marianne killed herself
And I said not a chance
Not a chance
Don't you love the girls ladies babes
Old bags who say she was so pretty
Why why why why did she crawl down in the
Old deep ravine

C'mon pigtails girls and all those sailors
Get your bags and hold down won't you just
Hold down cause ed is watching my every sound
I said they're watching my every sound

The weasal squeaks faster
Than a seven day week
I said timmy and that purple monkey
Are all down at bobby's house
Making themselves pesters and lesters
And jesters and my
Traitors of kind

And I'm just having thougts of marianne
She could outrun the fastest slug
She could
Marianne
Quickest girl in the frying pan
I'm just having thoughts of marianneback to top
Caught a Lite Sneeze
Caught a lite sneeze caught a lite breeze
Caught a lightweight lightningseed
Boys on my left side
Boys on my right side
Boys in the middle and you're not here
I need a big loan from the girl zone

Building
Tumbling down
Didn't know our love was so small
Couldn't stand at all
Mr. st. john just bring your son

The spire is hot
And my cells can't feed
And you still got that belle dragging your foots
I'm hiding it well sister ernestine
But I still got that belle
Dragging my foots

Building
Tumbling down
Didn't know our love was so small
Couldn't stand at all
Mr. st. john just bring your son

Right on time you get closer and closer
Call my name but there's no way in
Use that fame
Rent your wife and kids today
Maybe she will maybe she will
Caught a lite sneeze
Dreamed a little dream
Made my own pretty hate machine
Boys on my left side
Boys on my right side
Boys in the middle and you're not here
Boys in their dresses and you're not here
I need a big loan from the girl zone

Building tumbling down
Didn't know our love was so small
Couldn't stand at all
Mr. st. john just bring you're sonback to top
Muhammad My Friend
Muhammad my friend it's time to tell the world we both know it was a girl
Back in bethlehem
And on that fateful daywhen she was crucified
She wore shiseido red and we drank tea by her side

Sweet sweet sweet
Used to be so sweet to me

Muhammad my friend I'm gettin very scared
Teach me how to love my brothers who don't know the law
And what about the deal on the flying trapeze
Got a peanut butter hand but honey do drop in
At the dew drop inn

Sweet sweet sweet
Between the boys and the bees

And moses I know
I know you've seen fire
But you're never seen fire
Until you've seen pele blow
And I've never seen light
But I sure have seen gold
And gladys save a place for me on your grapevine
Till I get my own honey tv show

Ashre ashre ashre ashre
And if I lose my cracker jacks at the tidal wave
I got a place in the pope's rubber robe
Muhammad my friend it's time to tell the world
We both know it was a girl back in bethlehem
We both know it was a girl back in bethlehemback to top
Hey Jupiter
No one's picking up the phone
Guess it's me and me
And this little masochist
She's ready to confess
All the things that I never thought
That she could feel and

Hey jupiter
Nothing's been the same
So are you gay
Are you blue
Thought we both could use a friend
To run to
And I thought I wouldn't have to be with you
As something new

Sometimes I breathe you in
And I know you know
And sometimes you take a swim
Found your writing on my wall
If my heart's soaking wet
Boy your boots can leave a mess

Hey jupiter
Nothings been the same
So are you gay
Are you blue
Thought we both could use a friend
To run to
And I thought you wouldn't have to keep
With me
Hiding

Yes

Thought I knew myself so well
All the dolls I had
Took my leather off the shelf
Your apocalypse was fab
For a girl who couldn't choose between
The shower or the bath

And I thought I wouldn't have to be
With you
A magazine

No one's picking up the phone
Guess it's clear he's gone
And this little masochist
Is lifting up her dress
Guess I thought I could never feel
The things I feel

Hey jupiter
Nothing's been the same
So are you gay
Are you blue
Thought we both could use a friend
To run to

Hey jupiter
Nothing's been the same
So why you say
Now we're trough
I thought we both could use a friend
To run toback to top
Way Down
Maybe I'm the afterglow
Cause I'm with a band you know
Don't you hear the laughter on the way down

Yes I am the anchorman
Dining here with son of sam
Hear too much to chatter on the way down

Gonna meet a great big star
Gonna drive his great big car
Gonna have it all here on the way down
Way down
Way down
Way down
She knows
Way down

Little Amsterdam
Little amsterdam
In a southern town
Hominy get it on your plate girl
Momma keep your head down
Momma it wasn't my bullet

Don't take me back to the range
I'm just comin out of the cell in my brain
Girl you got to know these days
Which side you're on

Momma got shit
She loved a brown man
Then she built a bridge in the sheriff's bed
She'd do anything to save her man
You see her olives are cold pressed
And her best friend is a sun dress
But momma it wasn't my bullet

Don't take me back to the range
I'm just comin out of the cell in my brain
Girl you got to know these days
Which side you're on

Round and a round and a round I go
Round and a round this time for keeps

Father only you can save my sould
And playing that organ must count
For something
Girl you got to know these days

Little amsterdam
Shut down today
They buried her with a butter bean bouquet
And the sheriff now can't ride away
Like he said into the sunset
And I won't say that he shouldn't of paid
But momma it wasn't my bulletback to top
Talula
Congradulate you
Said you had a double tongue
Balancing cake and bread
Say goodbye to a glitter girl

Talula
Talula
You don't want to lose her
She must be worth losing
If it is worth something
Talula
Talula
She's brand new now to you
Wrapped in your papoose
Your little fig newton

Say goodbye to the old world

Ran into the henchman who severed
Anne bolyn
He did it right quickly a merciful man
She said 1+1 is 2
But henry said that it was 3
So it was
Here I am

Talula
Talula
I don't want to lose it
It must be worth losing if it is worth something
Talula
Talula
She's brand new now to you
Wrapped in your papoose
Your little fig newton

And jamaica
Do you know what I have done
Mary m weaving on said
What you want is in the blood of senators

I got big bird on the fishing line
I got a bit of a shout bit of a shout
A bit of an angry snout
He's my faourite hooker of the whole bunch
And I know about his only bribe
And how the russians die on the ice
I got my rape hot on
Honey but I always could accessorise
And I never cared too much for the money
But I know right now
That it's in god's hands
But I don't know who the father is

Talula
Talula
I don't want to lose him
He must be worth losing
If it is worth something

Not the Red Baron
Not the red baron
Not charlie brown
Think I got the message figured
Another pilot down
And are their devils with halos
In beautiful capes
Taking them into the flames

Not judy g
Not jean jean with a hallowed
Heart
I see that screen go down
In the flames with every step
With every beautiful heel pointed

Not the red baron I'm sure
Not charlie wonderful dog
Not anyone I really know
Just another pilot down
Maybe I'll just sing him a last
Little sound many there know some girls
With red ribons
The prettiest red ribbonsback to top
Agent Orange
Gotta tell you what I heard from agent orange
Mr. suntan
Mr. happy man
Mr. I know the girls on all the world tours
Mr. agent, yes
He's my favourite
And they don't understand
He's got palm oil for hands
Yes he's down there and everywhere
He's getting in too deep in this
Underwater city where she swims and swimsback to top
Doughnut Song
Had me a drink and a kick and your message
Well you'll never gain weight from a doughnut hole
Then thought that I could decipher your message
There's no one here dear
No one at all

And if I'm wasting all your time this time
Maybe you never learned to take
And if I'm hanging on to your shade
I guess I'm way beyond the pale

And southern men can grow gold
Can grow pertty
Blood can be pertty like a delicate man
Copper to steel to a hinge that is faltered
That let's you in let's you in let's you in

And if I'm wasting all your time this time
Maybe you never learned to take
And if I'm hanging on to your shade
I guess I'm way beyond the pale

Something's just keeping you numb

You told me last night
You were a sun now with your very own
Devoted satellite
Happy for you and I am
Sure that I hate you
Two sons too many too many able fires

You been waisting all my time this time
Said you never learned to take
And if I'm hanging on to your shade
I guess I'm way beyond the pale

Had me a drink and a kick and your message
You never gain weight from a doughnut holeback to top
In the Springtime of His Voodoo
Standin on a corner in winslow arizona
And I'm quite sure I'm in the wrong song
2 girls 65 got a piece tied up in the back seat
'honey we're recovering christians'

In the springtime of his vodoo
He was going to show me spring

And right there for a minute
I knew you so well
And right there for a minute
I knew you so well

Got an angry snatch
Girl you know what I mean
When swivelin that hip doesn't do the trick
Me pureed sanitarily mr. sulu
Warp speed
Warp speed
Warp speed

In the springtime of his vodoo
In the springtime of his vodoo

Every road leads back to my door
[and right there for a minute]
Every road I will follow
[i knew you so well]
Every road leads back to my door
[and right there for a minute]
Got all your crosses loaded

And I know she's not than foxy boys
I said I know she's not that foxy but
You gotta owe something sometimes
You gotta owe when you're your momma's sunshine
You've got to give something sometimes
When you're the sweetest cherry in an apple pie
I need some vodoo on these prunes

In the springtime of his vodoo
In the springtime of his vodoo
He was going to show me springback to top
Putting the Damage On
Glue stuck to my shoes
Does anyone know why you play with an orange rind
You say you packed my things and divided what was mine
You're off to the mountain top
I say her skinny legs could use sun
But now I'm wishing for my best impression
Of my best angie dickenson
But now I've got to worry
Cause boy you still look pretty
When you're putting the damage on

Don't make me scratch on your door
I never left you for a banjo
I only just turned around for a poodle
And a corvette
And my impresson
Of my best angie dickenson
But now I've got to worry
Cause boy you still look pretty
When you're putting the damage on

I'm trying not to move
It's just your ghost passing through
I said I'm trying not to move
It's just your ghost passing through
It's just your ghost passing through
And now I'm quite sure
There's a light in your plantoon
I never seen a light move
Like yours can do to me
So now I'm wishing for my best impression
Of my best angie dickenson
But now I've got to worry
Cause boy you still look pretty to me

But I've got a place to go
I've got a ticket to your late show
And now I've got to worry cause even still
You sure are pretty
When you're putting the damage on
Yes
When you're putting the damage on
You're just so pretty
When you're putting the damage onback to top
Twinkle
Sure that star can twinkle
And you're watching it do
Boy so hard boy so hard
But I know a girl twice as hard
And I'm sure
Said I'm sure
She's watching it too
No matter what tie she's got
In her right dresser
Tied
I know she's watching that star
Gonna twinkle
Gonna twinkle
Gonna twinkle

And last time I knew
She worked at an abbey in iona
She said 'i killed a man t
I've gotta stay hidden in this abbey'
But I can see that star
When she twinkles
And I sure can
That means
I sure can

That means
I sure can
So hard
So hardback to top
