On the tree and growin' now
Green apples
Are gonna be explodin' now

Yeah, Monkey
Now, you seein' right now?
Yeah, Monkey
Jumpin' on the bed now

Stop Breaking Down
VERSE 1:
I can't walk the streets now
To convulate my mind
Some pretty mama, she starts
Breakin' down - stop breakin' down!

Whoo! Stop breakin' down!


CHORUS:
The stuff I got is gonna bust your brains out
Well, it'll make you lose your mind


VERSE 2:
You saturday night women, you love to
Ape and clown
You won't do nothin' but tear a good man's
Reputation down - stop breakin' down!

Whoo! Stop breakin' down!

CHORUS

Ahhhh yeah


VERSE 3:
I gave my baby
The ninety-ninth degree
She jumped up and throwed a pistol down on me
Stop breakin' down!

Ye-ah! Stop breakin' down!

BREAK

The Big Three Killed My Baby
The White Stripes - The Big Three Killed My Baby


THE WHITE STRIPES ARE THE GREATEST!!!

The big three killed my baby
no money in my hand again
the big three killed my baby
nobody's coming home again
Their ideas made me want to spit
a hundred dollars goes down the pit
30,000 wheels are rollin
and my stick shift hands are swollen
everything involved is shady
the big three killed my baby
The big three killed my baby
no money in my hand again
the big three killed my baby
nobody's coming home again
Why dont you take the day off and try to repair
a billion others dont seem to care
better ideas are stuck in the mud
the motors runnin on tuckers blood
dont let them tell you the future's electric
cause gasolines not measured in metric
30,000 wheels are spinnin'
and oil company faces are grinnin
now my hands are turnin' red
and i found out my baby is dead
The big three killed my baby
no money in my hand again
the big three killed my baby
nobodys coming home again
Well i've said it now, nothings changed
people are burnin for pocket change
and creative minds are lazy
and the big three killed my baby
And my babys my common sense
so dont feed me planned obsolescence
yeah my baby's my common sense
so dont feed my planned obsolescence
im about to have another blowout
im about to have another blowoutback to top
Suzy Lee
VERSE 1:
There's a story
I would like to tell
My problem is
It's one you know too well
It's one you know too well

VERSE 2:
Ms. Suzy Lee
The one I'm speaking of
The question is
Is she the one I love?
Is she the one I love? (alright)

Is she the one I love?
Is she the one I love?

VERSE 3:
She sent me flowers
With her tears burned inside
And you know what I'd do
I would run and hide
I would run and hide

VERSE 4:
In the paper
On it was my name
With the question
"Do you feel the same?"
"Do you feel the same?"

VERSE 5:
To end this tale
The one I'm speaking of
I wish I had an answer but I just don't know
Is this really love?
Is this really love?


Is this really love?
Is this really love?back to top
Sugar Never Tasted So Good
White Stripes - Sugar Never Tasted So Good

Sugar never tasted so good
Sugar never tasted so good
Sugar never tasted good to me
Yeah

Until her eyes crossed over
Until her mind crossed over
Until her soul fell next to me
Now...

If the wrinkle that is in your brain
Has given you quite a sting
Your fingers have become a crane
Pullin' on this puppet string

Yeah
What a feelin' that's begun
What a feelin' that's begun
What a feelin' that's begun
What a feelin' that's begun
Alright

I felt just like a baby
Until I held the baby
What a fool this boy can be
Yeah

And her thought's like a daisy's
How my mind gets lazy
I must've been crazy not to see
Alright

If the wrinkle that is in your brain
*Has given you quite a ding
Your fingers have become a crane
Your fingers have become a crane
Your fingers have become a crane
Pullin' on this puppet string

*[this word could just be "sting" again, but my version of the song skips here,
so it's hard to tell.]

Water never tasted so good
Water never tasted so good
Water never tasted good to me.back to top
Wasting My Time
cool and short song.

1.And if I'm wasting my time
Then nothing could be better
Than hanging on the line
And waiting for an honest word forever

2.And if you're saying good bye
Please don't you think me bitter
For recalling every rhyme
From the book the page
The line the word the letter

3.Well the window's turning blue
And the water's ever flowing
And I'm not a fool
For laughing at myself
As you were going



The end.......... . . you're WELcomeback to top
Cannon
*note: these lyrics are pretty much completely impossible
to understand a lot of the time, though I think a lot of
it is from some Sunday school song or something, I don't
really know. (?) = my best guess

Outside my door
I locked, I loaded
And this sound just come outta nowhere
Yeah, nowhere

Whoo!
With cannon (?)
Scratchin' (?)
And burnin'
Yeah
I thought good (?)
Chains (?)

Broken Bricks
VERSE 1:
Well, have you been to the broken bricks girl?
Snuck down through the cyclone fence
Past the caution tape and the security gate
Backwards to the breakroom bench
Well, there's a little corner where you first got kissed
And felt your boyfriends fist and made the company list
And there's a little spot where your dad ate lunch
And your brother landed his first punch yeah, yeah, yeah

VERSE 2:
Well have you been to the broken bricks girl
Seen the barrels that they left behind?
Seen the machine that cut aluminium clean
And got tape from the caution sign
Broken tooth window panes
Just a rusty-colored rain that drives a man insane
You try to jump over water but you land in oil
Climb the ladder up a broken crane yeah, yeah, yeah

VERSE 3:
Don't go to the broken bricks girl
It's not the place that you want to be
Think about the spot your father spent his life
Demolition calls it "Building C"
Demolition calls it "Building C," now
Demolition calls it "Building C" now yeahback to top
When I Hear My Name

Do
VERSE 1:
Well, somebody walked up to me
But I didn't know what to do
And then somebody said hello to me
But I didn't know what to do
Because I think that my words could get twisted
So I bend my back over, take a gulp, be funny
Cause I know there's nothing I can do

VERSE 2:
Then my mother tried to pick me up
'Cause I was sittin' down on the ground
Something forced my baby eyes come open
But I couldn't make out the sound
It doesn't matter 'cause my eyes are lying
And they don't have emotion, don't wanna be social
Can't take it when they hate me
But I know there's nothing I can do


When my thoughts start to feel like mine
But Take it from me it seems to happen every time
And the feelings that are fine for you
There's somebody there who doesn't think they are true
So think of something new
There's nothing left to do

VERSE 3:
And then my idols walk next to me
I look up at them, they fade away
It's a destruction of a mystery
The more I listen to what they say
So does that mean that there's no more doin'
And there's no more thinkin', and there's no more feeling
'Cause there's no right opinion
Can you tell me what I'm supposed to do?back to top
Screwdriver
Tuesday mornin' now
I Got to have somewhere to go
I call up Tommy now
I call him on the telephone
Won't you wake up and come with me now?
I'm goin' to the pond alone
Walkin' down 33
A-walkin' down 30,oh

Yeah.

What am I supposed to think?
I drop a nickle in the sink
I love people like a brother now
But I'm not gonna be their mother now
What if someone walked up to me and
Likin' that never come right through me
I'm not just gonna stand there grinnin'
'Cause I'm not the one who sent the screwdriver

Ooohh.

Ohh-oohh.

Now that you have heard my story now
I got a little endin' to it now
Whenever you are caught alone
Take it give a dog a bone
Think about your little sister
And then you gotta drive it home screwdriver.

I got a little feelin' goin' now (x15)
Now now now!back to top
One More Cup of Coffee
White Stripes - One More Cup of Coffee

Your breath is sweet and weak
Your eyes are like the two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight, your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude, no love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'for I go
To the valley below

You daddy is a mountaineer
And a wanderer by trade
He'll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom
So no stranger does intrude
His voice, it trembles
As he calls out for another, lake of moons(?)

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'for I go
To the valley below

Your sister sees the future
Like your mother and yourself
You don't know how to read and write
There's no books upon your shelf
But your pleasure knows no limits
And your voice is like medow land (?)
Your heart is like the ocean
Mysterious and dark

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'for I go
To the valley belowback to top

St. James Infirmary Blues
VERSE 1:
Well, folks, I'm goin' down to St. James Infirmary
To see my little lady there
She's stretched out on a long, white table
Well, she
looks so good, so cold, so fair

VERSE 2:
Let her go, let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be
You may search this whole wide world over
But you'll never find another sweetheart like me
Yeah,

VERSE 3:
Take apart your bones and put 'em back together
Tell your mama that you're somebody new
Feel the breeze blowin', tell em all, "Look out, here it comes!"
Now, I can say whatever I feel like to you

VERSE 4:
Then give me six crap-shootin' pallbearers
Let a chorus girl sing me a song
Put a red-hot jazz band, we raise` `I'm afraid it's the best I can do to decifer this
Hallelujah as we go along line. I'm all ears if you can understand it better.
Well,

VERSE 5:
Well, folks, now that you have heard my story
Say, boy, hand me another shot of that rye
And if anyone should ask you
Just tell 'em I
got some of those St. James Infirmary bluesback to top
I Fought Piranhas
good slow song.


1.Well I hold the rope
And I hold the sail
And I kept my papers
To keep from land in jail
There was no one with me
Iwas all alone
And I fought piranhas
And I fought the cold


.Well it's Easter morning now
There's no one around
So I unroll the cement
Walk into the town
And I fought piranhas
And I fought the cold
There was no one with me
I was all alone


.Well you know what it's like
I don't go to tell you
Who puts up a fight
Walking out of hell now
When there's no one with you
And you're all alone
And you fought piranhas
And you faught the cold



you're welcome dear.back to top
