Stripper Song

You got fire baby, you got soul baby, and I want you to dance for me all night long
You got style baby, you got curves baby, and I want you to dance for me one more song

I donʼt know if I can hide my yearnings, Iʼm wasted
Thereʼs a lot girls making earnings, I bet you taste like gum, mixed with the rays of
the sun
Girls here in the darkness
Girls here in the darkness, takin my money
Girls here in the darkness
I donʼt want to go back to the light

You got form baby, you got nerve baby, and I want you to dance like you never been
torn
You got rough baby, you got sex baby, and I want you to dance like you all alone

I know your body hurts from turnin, keep moving
Thereʼs a lot girls making earnings, I bet you taste like gum, mixed with the rays of
the sun
Girls here in the darkness
Girls here in the darkness, takin my money
Girls here in the darkness
I donʼt want to go back to the light

Burning Bed

Are the stars aligned yuh know, nickels, quarters, and dimes in your pocket did you
know that
Are the clouds singing aloud, theyʼve been known to drown did you know that did you
know that

Anytime you want, anytime you call

You make me feel so good
You make me feel so good
You make me feel so good

Ohh, stay with me, till the cold retreats

The skin starts to burn through, mountains hues so blue did you know that did you
know that
Fingers start to shake, the blood canʼt reach the breaks did you know that did you
know that

Anytime you crave, you ever need a taste

You make me feel so good
You make me feel so good
You make me feel so good

Ohh, stay with me, till the cold retreats, and I will be

Hey

When the devil comes for me I know heʼll drag me down through the ground nice and
slow, and if Iʼm lucky enough heʼll take my eyes before I go

Hey (lord my lord)

When the devil comes for me Iʼll be shootin doves while iʼm floatin down the
Mississippi and if Iʼm lucky enough heʼll beat my head before I leave

Hey (lord my lord)

Cus Iʼve been a bad man, rolling into town when everyoneʼs sittinʼ in pews
And I would roll up, thinkin’ I could show up, dressed in boots, fuck sunday shoes
Well I deserve it, so I prepped for hell pits, only one more grand thing to do
Iʼm gonna drink myself until I canʼt stand cus when I die thereʼll be no more booze

Godmother

She gave you some of her good love, the kind you know you needed, whoa
You sucked up all her fine wine, the kind you just pour in your mouth, whoa
Doesnʼt matter me what you do, ainʼt my place to come between the two of you
But I bet by now you already know

My baby donʼt take shit from no man,
And if you try she gives you the back hand
My baby donʼt take shit from no man
If trouble comes, she keep left, she keep hard, she keep it on moving

If you ever come around here, you know I’m gonʼ make you pay
Like you did her on that Autumn day
Cus you don’t deserve her kiss, ainʼt gonna feel those lips
No more
If you’re feeling you can make due, messinʼ round with girls that carry voodoo
Head these words before you do

My baby donʼt take shit from no man,
And if you try she gives you the back hand
My baby donʼt take shit from no man
If trouble comes, she keep left, she keep hard, she keep it on moving

Iʼve come to know her real good, sheʼll let you what, sheʼll bring the volume
She tells it like a woman should

My baby donʼt take shit from no man,
And if you try she gives you the back hand
My baby donʼt take shit from no man
If trouble comes
!
My baby donʼt take shit from no man, (and Iʼll say it on the radio)
And if you try she gives you the back hand
My baby donʼt take shit from no man
If trouble comes, she keep left, she keep hard, she keep it on moving

Elisabeth Shue

Where yuh goin girl, you donʼt know, when you comin back, girl itʼs cold
I canʼt understand why you never come home
How you sleepin girl, hard to say? And youʼre happy girl? Ainʼt no way so I canʼt
understand why you continue to stay.

Elisabeth Shue, why do you do, the things you do, the things you do, the things you do

Whatʼd you make tonight, bout 3K? How many is that girl, one too many
I canʼt help but think that Iʼm just too late
If you want to girl we can drive far away from here letʼs just try and I
Promise weʼll start a new and leave this behind

Elisabeth Shue, why do you do, the things you do, the things you do, the things you do

Maybe we can get a place adjacent to the city of Leeds

Get a dog together join a fitness club and then marry
And it might sound just like a typical ordinary life, but itʼs fine by me, if youʼre fine
fine by me
Elisabeth Shue, why do you do, the things you do, the things you do, the things you do
Elisabeth Shue, why do you do, the things you do, Iʼd be good for you

Piece of Art

Still trying to find my way around, but itʼs hard sometimes keeping my feet on the
ground
I donʼt mind the wobbly line cus itʼs never been crossed before
All I try to keep in mind is that youʼre never coming back through the door

So, well I wake up, every day with all this stuff
And I tried my best I tried so hard just to let it be

But I canʼt see no one with you but me,
Iʼd quit my boyhood dream just to be with you lady
And though weʼll be 2,000 miles away I hope and pray someday that I can
Call you my baby again

Still trying to break from my old ways
Well itʼs harder than it looks when youʼre constantly engulfed in haze
I’ll make the most of it, dancing along to the sound of this melancholy stencil drawing
anticipatory love song

So well I wake up, adjust to times when they get rough, and I’ll think of you and all you
do,
just to help me sleep

Cus I canʼt see no one but you with me,
Iʼd quit my boyhood dream just to be with you lady
And though weʼll be 2,000 miles away I hope and pray someday that I can
Call you my baby again

Often wondering if you’re stumbling like me
I bet you are on some minute degree
And if you’re not i’ll take my shot by blowing up marquees
Ohhhhhh

So, well I wake up every day with all this stuff

And I tried my best I tried so hard just to let it be

Cus I canʼt see no one but you with me,
Iʼd quit my boyhood dreams just to be with you lady
And though weʼll be 2,000 miles away I hope and pray someday that I can
Call you my baby

Cus I donʼt wanna be nothing, I just wanna be something before I kiss you baby
And you deserve nothing but good things, neck kisses and diamond rings

Two Minus One

Welcome back to the story of a boy and girl, itʼs a loverʼs quarry
Last we left off, she was quite into him but he was not so much into her
And sheʼd waste her evenings with him watching him sing to people
But she didnʼt mind it one little tiny bit
And he knows he should be good to her
By telling her soon before it bursts just like a balloon
But he canʼt bring himself to do what it is heʼs supposed to do
Cus making it one means leaving the comfort of two

You will know when itʼs over but donʼt cry donʼt waste your tears
Cus you can do much better than he was
You will know when itʼs over but donʼt cry donʼt waste your tears
Cus you can do much better than he was

But he canʼt bring himself to do what it is heʼs supposed to do
Cus making it one means leaving the comfort of two

You will know when itʼs over but donʼt cry donʼt waste your tears
Cus you can do much better than he was
You will know when itʼs over but donʼt cry donʼt waste your tears
Cus you can do much better than he was

Miss May & Dean Kay

It began with a note that he read and she wrote
And that night they took turns expressing their concerns
Well she chose to be with him, but if him just ainʼt what she needs

Fight for your born right to love anyone you deem worthy of your love

The years past they moved on, both got wed, had kids young
And sometimes just by chance sheʼd reflect time well spent
And he happened to be there, her in his arms sheltered from fear

Fight for your born right to love anyone you deem worthy of your love

Dean said he never felt the same, heʼd stare at his wife and think her name
It grew inside her hard and slow, like she committed a crime but never told a soul

Well Miss May and Dean Kay, both got slow, hair turned gray
Companions long laid rest, all the kids had moved west
And one day they both sent notes, in hopes of re-submerging both

Fight for your born right to love anyone you deem worthy of your love
Fight for your born right to love anyone you deem worthy of your love

What Time Is It In L.A.?

Someday real soon Iʼll run into you,
On a cold January afternoon
The sun pushes through, the clouds start to move
And the blue unlocks the truth

When I loved you I loved you so hard
When I loved you, I loved you with all of my heart

Someday real soon Iʼll see you again
Springtime on the outskirts of Brooklyn
Shoulders brush by, somehow I catch your eye
Wondering if you ever knew

That when I loved you I loved you so hard
When I loved you, I loved you with all of my heart

I know someday somehow someway
Just be patient
Go on search the crowd
Iʼll be right here till you figure it out

I promise you this, sealed with a kiss that I

Well Iʼd love you, Iʼd love you just as hard
Well Iʼd love you, Iʼd love you just as hard
Cus I love you, I love you with all of my heart

Someday real soon Iʼll run into you
On a warm January afternoon

Parker

Yellow doves fly above, flower bed of roses, in between their noses sits a little man
caressing his can of gold

He started out at grammar school and made his way by following the rules
Heʼd pride himself on doing great got Aʼs as grades on every test heʼd take
Cus he came from nothing, want to be something better than his daddy was
But his father told him son, ʻbeing first ainʼt number oneʼ then he said

“Donʼt fly so high that you canʼt see the ground or hear itʼs sounds
Sparks turn to flames, burn up your wings theyʼll bring you down
Find the value of love dear boy, open up your veins and let your cauffers bleed
Free”

He grew from boy to man and had a plan that led him straight into the jewelers biz
Got himself four cars, three homes, two dogs, one fine wife the life he always wanted
But work came first, wife came second, fiddled for two years too long
Till one day when he came home, looked around and she was gone
Found a note upon the bed, he unfolded it and read, and it said

“While you were flying high and tending to your gold
I met a man named Jackson who fucked right to my soul
Find the value of love dear boy, open up your veins and let your cauffers bleed
Free”

Every now, every now I think about him
Now and then I stop and stare and think about him

Yellow doves fly above, flower bed of roses, in between their noses sits a little man
caressing his can of gold

Piper Pink Parade

This is the routine hour of day
When all the cars are cold and crying
Then comes the best time of night
When all the streets begin unwinding

I foresee some spinning, drinking, window siling kind of night

Scare me out
Paint my legs red
So I donʼt return here again

This is the worst time of day
When all the cars are cold and crying
This is the sweetest hour of night
When the whiskeyʼs poured and pills are tryin

To do dirty deeds, and to help me reveal words I never could see

Scare me out
Paint my legs red
So I donʼt return here again

This is the Piper Pink Parade
When the brainʼs grown tired and mouth is whining
I canʼt breathe, no sorrow here left within me

Scare me out
Paint my legs red
So I donʼt return here again
Scare me out
Paint my legs red
So I donʼt return here again
