all Ugly Kid Joe lyrics



Neighbor
Sittin' in your front yard, drinkin' lemonade
Suburban life, a pretty wife, you think you've got it made
But you don't know, what's in store, for you and your family
I'm movin' in, right next door, won't you welcome me?
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
And I hope I didn't ruin your day
Won't you be my neighbor?

I brought my life, my ugly wife, my dirty dog with fleas
My kid's a punk, and I'm a drunk, this I'm sure you'll see
Yeah you don't know, what it's like, to live in misery
Welcome to, home sweet hell, dissatisfaction guaranteed
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
And if I could I surely would
Invite you in and say
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you be my neighbor?

C'mon I don't think you'll find
A place to live in peace of mind
You're gonna live in misery
When you're livin' next to me
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...aaaah
Won't you be my, won't you be my funky(fuckin') neighbor?

Well I drink, and I stink, I smoke, yeah I'm a joke
I try all night and day to get a piece of the action, a-haa
And you should know by now you're never gonna forget, a-aaa
Now I know just what you're thinkin'
It could be out 'n' you're drinkin'
So don't you knock it until you try it
It could be you in a little while
I hope I didn't ruin your day

Cool ending bit
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
And I dig your wife, she sure is good
It's a beautiful day in the neighboorhood... ha, ha, haback to top
Goddamn Devil
Rape, D.U.I., assult and battery
These are things that will bring you to me
Murder and theft and all of the above
You can bet your life I know what you're thinking of
I've takin' you and I'll take your friends
Don't worry, we'll all meet in the end
'Cause life's a bitch and then you die
Trust me baby cause I don't lie

I'm the Goddamn Devil, this job pleases me
I'm the Goddamn Devil and I do it for free

I know the story about your life
If you killed your brother or you beat your wife
And I am here to punish you
You can't fool me cause I ain't no fool
The time has come to say goodbye
The end is here for those who cheat, steal and lie
There will be torture and there will be pain
Cause this is hell, baby, die in flames.

I'm the Goddamn Devil, this job pleases me
I'm the Goddamn Devil, Satan if you please
I'm the Goddamn Devil, this job pleases me
I'm the Goddamn Devil, and I do it for free

I don't care about you, don't care about your life
Don't care about your children or about your wife
I'm here to do my job so if you broke the law
You're checking in with me
But you can never leave....

There's one way out if you dare
We'll make a deal, you'll grow your hell
As Satan's child you'll start a band
And spread the word across the land

I'm the Goddamn Devil, this job pleases me
I'm the Goddamn Devil, Satan if you please
I'm the Goddamn Devil, better believe in me (only me)
I'm the Goddamn Devil!back to top
Come Tomorrow
About the time I'm eight years old
I met the Devil, kept my soul
Walkin' out on lakes of fire and I'm gone
Walkin' in a wonderland
And I don't really understand
The place I'm comin' to right now today

Chorus
Come tomorrow, you could see the light
Come tomorrow, break it right down to the place you were before

Fifteen years on down the line
I guess you'd say I'm doin' fine
Wandering down that same old road again
Walkin' in a wonderland
But Alice doesn't understand
The place she's comin' to right now today

Chorus

On your knees, you'll be begging me please
As you feel the disease
You're going down again tonight

See me runnin', watch me fall
I guess you'd say I've finally found my own,
See me cryin' and wonder why
I guess you'd say its time to die today

Chorusback to top
Panhandlin' Prince
Sittin' on a rusty park bench baby
Not much else to do
Smoke cigarettes and rink my Mickey's
Fine malt liquor brew
As I start drinkin' and I start thinkin'
That death is on my side
If my heart stopped beatin', the street kept reekin'
That's suicide.... that's right!

I grew up in the inner city
A dark part of this town
Just another innocent backwoods victim
Society like to put down
You can call me a boozer, or call me a loser
It really doesn't matter to me
I got a bench for snoozin', some sauce to keep boozin'
That's all I neeed

Chorus
I keep it comin', sometimes I don't know why
I'm gonna do it 'til the day i die

Consider me the duke as I dine in your dumpster
Unsanitary engineer
Baron of the bench the panhandlin' master
Well, I'm pullin' twenty G's a year
I know it ain't much but at least I'm in touch, yeah
With reality
And I wouldn't trade no places to be in rat races
No siree!

Chorus

Yo, Mr. Trump, can I ask you a question
You got some spare change for me sucker?
'Cause I'm down and out and there ain't no doubt
That I am here to stay

Yeah you see me lyin' with my brothers
In the gutter with my paper bag in hand
Yeah the streets are cold but at least
There's soul and that's all I need!

You'll take away my peace of mind
You'll leave me there to rot and die
But look again, my careless friend
The world you live is just a lie
It's a give and take, the more the fake
The more the pain, the more you lose
Live your life, don't take no sides
N'seize the day and drink your booze!back to top
Busy Bee
Everybody's alright with me
Possibly you'll disagree
Busy Bee watch the world go by

Everybody's alright with me
That's just the way I choose to be
Everybody's on my mind
Can't sit aside and watch this world go by
That ain't me

Chorus X2
Busy Bee watch the world go by

Everybody does their time
The people walk in crooked lines
Everybody's got their choice
But often we don't use our voice

Chorus X4

Busy Bee watch the world go by
How could you be so blind?
Some people they just ain't satisfied
Watch the world go by

I always hear the school bell ring
Let the children dance and sing
Just let us find what's been lost
So many people get torn and tossed away

Chorus X3

World go bye X3
Watch the world go bye X3

Nice ending bit
Everybody's alright with meback to top
Don't Go
Chorus
This time, this time I love you
Last time, last time I hate you
Next time, next time I need you
Baby please don't go

Remember when I met you
School dress on
I never could forget you
And Baby now you're gone

I'm goin' around, around today
Just tryin' to find the truth
It doesn't really matter anyway
When I'm livin' without you

Chorus

I said come on little darlin'
Baby don't you see
I'd never do you harmin', no
It's just you and me

I'm in the corner right now
Waiting for your love
You better make your choice now
Before a push comes to a shove
Yeah things seem kinda different
It ain't the way it was
Remember what your mama said
The bond that lies is us

Chorus

I'm by the phone, I'm all alone
Just waitin' and a prayin' that maybe you'll call
I gotta know right now, should I stay around, should I stay a while
Should I stand here crying or baby should I fly - yeah!

Oh come on darlin', Don't you se and don't you know,
I gotta have your lovin', now now I'll never let you go
Tryin' to find that girl of mine
She's so far away
And I am cryin' - yeah!back to top
So Damn Cool
I wanna know, why the people are everywhere... and...
I wanna know, where to go if I get scared... and...
I wanna be, in a place where no one cares, and...

I, I, I wanna know you!
'Cause you're so damn cool!
Yeah, you're so damn cool!

I wanna feel like I'm floatin' in the air... and...
I wanna know if the sun'ss gonna bleach my hair... and
I wanna know why life's so unfair and...

I wanna know you!
Because you're so damn cool!
Yeah, you're so damn cool!

Who knows what I'm feelin' inside of me!
And who knows if I'm feelin' all right!
Who knows what I'm feelin' inside of me
Who knows what is runnin' around in my brain

Now that I'm done and I seen it
And don't think that I'm tryin' to complain
Don't think I'm lyin' 'cause I mean it
n' all you people out there don't look at me to lay
all of your blame 'cause you need me
and you want me to go down
in flames with the rest
But I'm so sick of denyin'
What is runnin' around in my brainback to top
Same Side
It doesn't matter who you are
Or what you're gonna be
People from all walks of life
You gotta have diversity
We're all in this together
And together we shall be
You gotta be a friendly neighbor
If you're gonna live next to me
We're all

Livin' on the same side
Same side of town
Walkin' down the same streets
The streets that are all around

You could be my brother
Or you could be my friend
But don't turn your back on me
Cause we'll be here 'til the end
Yeah, we're all in this together
And we all have that dream
To live in perfect harmony
Like a family that's the scene
Yeah, we're all...

Livin' on the same side
Same side of town
Walkin' down the same streets
The Streets that are all around
Livin' on the same side
Same side of town
Shufflin' to the same beat
The beat that's all around

Stumblin' down on D.P., keggers all around,
Laughin' at the police as they try to take us down
Hangin' with each other, yeah hangin' with our bro's
We all love one another, from our heads down to our toesback to top
Cats in the Cradle
My child arrived just the other day
Came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
He was talkin' 'fore I knew it
And as he grew he said,
"I'm gonna be like you, Dad,
You know I'm gonna be like you."

Chorus
And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little boy blue and the man 'n the moon.
"When you comin' home?"
"Son, I don't know when. We'll get together then.
You know we'll have a good time then."

Well, my son turned ten just the other day.
He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad. Come on, let's play.
Could you teach me to throw?"
I said, "Not today. I got a lot to do."
He said, "That's okay." And he walked away and he smiled and he said,
"You know, I'm gonna be like him, yeah.
You know I'm gonna be like him."

Chorus

Well, he came from college just the other day,
So much like a man I just had to say,
"I'm proud of you. Could you sit for a while?"
He shook his head and he said with a smile,
"What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys.
See you later. Can I have them please ?"

Chorus

I've long since retired, my son's moved away.
I called him up just the other day.
"I'd like to see you, if you don't mind."
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I could find the time.
You see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu,
But it's sure nice talkin' to you, Dad.
It's been sure nice talkin' to you."
And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me,
He'd grown up just like me.
My boy was just like me.

Chorusback to top
I'll Keep Tryin'
If I had the time and lotsa money
The I'd take you 'round the world
'N' if I had a dime for every penny
Then I'd buy you diamonds girl
You don't even know how much I love you
And how much I wanna be...
Your knight in shining armor, yeah, baby
THat's good enough for me...

Chorus
And I'll keep tryin'
Yeah I'll keep tryin', to make you mine
...mine all mine
I hope you're buyin', I hope you're buyin'
All of my lines

Now if I was the king and had a castle
Then you'd surely be my queen
We would live up in the tallest tower
And we rarely would be seen
You don't even know how much I need you
And how much you mean to me
I'm dog without a bone hear me cryin'
And it's time for you to see that...

Everything About You
I, hate the rain and sunny weather,
and I, hate the beach and mountains too;
(and) I don't like a thing about the city, no, no
and I, I, I, hate the countryside too!

Semi-Chorus
and I, hate everything about you!
... everything about you!

I, don't like a thing about your mother,
and I, hate your daddy's guts too,
I, don't like a thing about your sister,
'cause I, I, I, think sex is overrated too.

Chorus
and I, get sick when I'm around, I, can't stand to be around,
I, hate everything about you!
Everything about you,
Everything about you,
Everything about you!

Some say I got a bad attitude,
but that don't change the way I feel about you,
and if you think this thought might bring me down,
look again 'cause I ain't wearin' no frown!

I don't really care about your sister
Forget the little bitch cause I already kissed her

One thing that I did to your lady
I put her on the bed and she didn't even say maybe
I know you know everybody knows
the way it comes, the way it's gonna go
You think it's sad,
And that's too bad,
'Cause I'm havin'
A ball hatin'
Every little thing about you!

Everything about you, Everything about...
I, get sick when I'm around
I, can't stand to be around
I, hate everything about........... you! heheback to top
Madman '92 Re-Mix
Disneyland is the place to be, c'mon baby, just you and me;
Hand in Hand, to Disneyland, we go! Not Slow;
Happiest place, in the world 'til the madman grabs a girl;
Hand in Hand, with the madman, she goes! Oh oh!

Chorus
Knife gleamin' no feelin's, axe wieldin', child stealin',
Madman is loose.... in Disneyland (in Disneyland)

Come here little girl if you wanna see, Peter Pan's magic flight on L.S.D.
Up and down, all around, we go! Whoa oh!

Repeat Chorus

Madman is loose in Disneyland; He's back here by popular demand;
Madman is loose in Disneyland; He'll take no lip but he'll take your head!

Surprise, Surprise, I'm comin' at ya' live;
I sure as hell ain't Mickey Mouse, I'm a killer in disguise
You can run and you can hide;
But you ain't gettin' away 'cause I got you in my sight;

Axe Wieldn', child Stealin';
I'm a mad mother and I'm loose!... in Disneyland!

Have you heard the news, madman sure is loose,
Got you by the noose, have his way with you;
Nothin' you can do, headline in the news,
madman sure is loose in Disneyland.

Disneyland is the place to be, in California, by the sea;
Sunny day, were A.O.K., for now, and how;

Mr. Recordman
Chorus
Mr. Recordman, do you know who I am?
Mr. Recordman, do you really think I can?

I've takin' a likin' to your game
I think we all, we feel the same
Is this a dream or is it real
You say you want to cut a deal?

Chorus

Don't need much time to think about
I'm sure that you have got the clout
I only hope that you're my friend
And stand by me until the end

Chorus

Sell a lotta records 'n' tour 'round the world,
Make a lotta money 'n' meet lotsa' girls
Mr. Recordman, do you really think I can?

It sound like music to my ears
I've dreamed of this for many years

Sell a lotta records 'n' tour 'round the world,
Make a lotta money 'n' meet lotsa' girls
Have a lot of fun and hang with my bro's
'Cause these boys and this band is all that I know

If not for the money and not for the show
Are you here for me or here for the dough?
Mr. Recordman, do you really give a damn?back to top
