NEW AGE

Waiting for the phone -- to ring
Diamond necklace -- on my shoulder
Waiting for the phone to ring
Lipstick -- on my naked shoulder

It seems to -- be my fancy
To make it with
It seems to be my fancy
To make it with
Frank and Nancy, well

Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love

I'll come running to you
Hey baby-if-you-want-me
I-I-I-I...
I'll come running
To you now
Baby-if-you-want-me
I-I-I-I...

Looking at my hands today
Look to me that they're
Made of ivory
I had a funny call -- today
Someone died
And someone's married
You know that -- it's my fancy
To make it with
Frank and Nancy

Over the bridge they go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
I'll come running to you now
Baby if you want me
I-I-I-I...
I'll come running to you
Baby if you want me
I-I-I-I...
I'll come running to you now
Baby if you want me
I-I-I-I...
I'll come running to you
Baby if you want me

And something's got a hold on me
It's the beginning of the New Age
Ohh-ohh-ohh it was
It's the beginning of the New A-a-age
Can't you save time for yourself
Yes, it's the beginning of the New A-a-age
Oh you little sick little (fox/fucks?) -- yes
It's the beginning of the New Aaaaage

'97 BONNIE AND CLYDE

Baby your da-da loves you
And Iím always gonna be here for you
No matter what happened
Youíre all I got in this world
I'd never give you up for nothin'
Nobody in this world is ever gonna keep you from me
I love you

Címon Hai-Hai, we goin to the beach
Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat
Whereís mama? Sheís takin a little nap in the trunk
Oh that smell -- da-da musta runned over a skunk

Now I know what youíre thinkin - itís kind of late to go swimmin
But you know your mama, sheís one of those type of women
That do crazy things, and if she donít get her way, sheíll throw a fit
Donít play with da-daís toy knife, honey, let go of it
And donít look so upset, why you actin bashful?
Donít you wanna help da-da build a sand castle?

And mama said she wants to show you how far she can float
Donít worry about that little boo-boo on her throat
Itís just a little scratch - it donít hurt
her was eatin dinner while you were sweepin and spilled ketchup on her shirt
Mamaís messy isnít she? Weíll let her wash off in the water
Me and you can pway by ourselves, canít we?

Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us

See honey -- thereís a place called heaven and a place called hell
There's a place called prison and a place called jail
And da-daís probably on his way to all of em except one
Cause mamaís got a new husband and a stepson
And you donít want a brother do ya?
Maybe when youíre old enough to understand a little better Iíll explain it to ya
But for now weíll just say mama was real real bad
She was bein mean to dad and made him real real mad
But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out
Sit back in your chair honey, quit tryin to climb out
I told you itís okay HaiHai wanna ba-ba take a night-night? Nan-a-boo, goo-goo ga-ga?
Her make goo-goo ca-ca? Da-da change your dia-dee
Clean the baby up so her can take a nighty-nighty
Your dadíll wake her up as soon as we get to the water
Ninety-seven Bonnie and Clyde, me and my daughter
Me and my daughter
Me and my daughter

Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us

Wake up sweepy head weíre here
Before we pway weíre gonna take mama for a wittle walk along the pier
Baby, donít cry honey, donít get the wrong idea
Mamaís too sweepy to hear you screamin in her ear
Thatís why you canít get her to wake, but donít worry
Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake
Here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock?
Weíll tie it to her footsie then weíll roll her off the dock
Ready now, here we go, on the count of free
One.. two.. free.. oh-weeeeeee
There goes mama, splashin in the water
No more fightin with dad, no more restraining order
No more step-da-da, no more brother
Blow her kisses bye bye, tell mommy you love her
Now weíll go play in the sand, build a castle and junk
But first, just help dad with two more things out the trunk

Just -- the two - of us

STRANGE LITTLE GIRL

One day you see a strange little girl look at you
One day you see a strange little girl feeling blue
Sheíd run to the town one day
Leaving home and her country fair
Just beware
When youíre there
Strange little girl

She didnít know how to live in a town that was rough
It didnít take long before she knew she'd had enough
Walking home in her wrapped up world
She survived but sheís feeling old
'cause she found
All things cold

Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl, you
I really should, you
I really should be
Going

I know you are sure
I know you are sure
I know
I know you are sure

One day you see a strange little girl look at you
One day you see a strange little girl feeling blue
Walking home in her wrapped up world
She survived but sheís feeling old
'cause she found
All things cold

Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl, you
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl, I
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
I
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should, be -- going

ENJOY THE SILENCE

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world

Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Canít you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And unforgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They -- can only do harm

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world

Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Canít you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And -- forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here -- in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They -- can only do harm
Can only do harm

I'M NOT IN LOVE

Iím not in love, so donít forget it
Itís just a silly phase Iím going through
And just because I call you up
Donít get me wrong, donít think youíve got it made

Iím not in love, no no, itís because
I like to see you, but then again
That doesnít mean you mean that much to me
So if I call you, donít make a fuss
Donít tell your friends about the two of us
Iím not in love, no no, itís because
I keep your picture upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain thatís lying there
So donít you ask me to give it back
I know you know it doesnít mean that much to me
Iím not in love, no no, itís because

Ooh, youíll wait a long time for me
Ooh, youíll wait a long time

Iím not in love, Iím not in love

RATTLESNAKES

Jodie wears a hat although it hasnít rained for six days
She says a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of those rattlesnakes
On account of those rattlesnakes

She looks like Eve Marie Saint
In on the waterfront
She reads Simone de Beauvoir
in her American circumstance

Sheís less than sure if her heart has come -- to stay in San Jose
And her neverborn child haunts her now
As she speeds down the freeway
As she tries her luck with the traffic police
Out of boredom more than spite
She never finds no trouble, she tries too hard
Sheís oblivious despite herself
Hey

She looks like Eve Marie Saint
In on the waterfront, she says
All she needs is therapy
All you need is love, is all you need
Ahh-ah

Jodie never sleeps Ďcause there are always needles in the hay - hay
She says a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of the rattlesnakes
Hey on account of the rattlesnakes

She looks like Eve Marie Saint In on the waterfront
As she reads Simone de Beauvoir
In her American circumstance
Her heartís like crazy paving
Upside down and back to front, she says
Ooh, itís so hard to love when
Love was your great disappointment
Oooh
Account of those rattlesnakes
She says a girl needs a gun these days, hey
Uh uh uh uh mmmhmmm
She says a girl needs a gun these days, hey
On account of the rattlesnakes
Hey on account of those rattlesnakes

TIME

Well, the smart moneyís on Harlow
And the moon is in the street
The shadow boys are breaking all the laws
And youíre east of East St. Louis
And the wind is making speeches
And the rain sounds like a round of applause

Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon
His invisible fiance is in the mirror
The band is going home
Itís raining hammers, itís raining nails
Yes, itís true, thereís nothing left for him down here

And itís Time Time Time
And itís Time Time Time
And itís Time Time Time
That you love
And itís Time Time Time

And they all pretend theyíre Orphans
And their memoryís like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you canít remember
Tell the things you canít forget that
History puts a saint in every dream
Well she said sheíd stick around
Until the bandages came off
But these mamas boys just donít know when to quit
And Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams
Or are those prayers
So just close your eyes, son
And this wonít hurt a bit

And itís Time Time Time
And itís Time Time Time
And itís Time Time Time
That you love
And itís Time Time Time

Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars
And splash into the streets
And when sheís on a roll she pulls a razor
From her boot and a thousand
Pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window
And a kiss upon his lips
Till the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay the fiddler off till I come back again

HEART OF GOLD

I want to live
I want to give
I want to live
I want to give
Iíve been a miner
For a heart of gold
Itís these expressions
I never give

That keep me searching for a heart of gold
That keep me searching for a heart of gold

I've been to Hollywood
Iíve been to Hollywood
Iíve been to Redwood
I crossed an ocean
For a heart of gold
Iíve been in my mind
Itís such a fine line

That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold, I said

Iíve been to Hollywood
Iíve been to Redwood
I crossed an ocean
For a heart of gold

Iíve been in my mind
Itís such a fine line
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
I said...I said...I said...
Searching
Oh, yeah
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
Keeps me keeps me
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a - heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold

I DON'T LIKE MONDAYS

MmmMmmMmm. MmmMmmMmmMmm.
MmmMmmMmm. MmmMmmMmmMmm.

The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobodyís gonna go to school today
Sheís gonna make them stay at home
And daddy doesnít understand it
He always said she was good as gold
And he can see no reason
'cause there are no reasons
What reasons do you need to be sho-o-o-o-own

Tell me why
I donít like Mondays
Tell me why
I donít like Mondays
I don't like
I don't like
I donít like Mondays
Tell me why
I donít like Mondays
I want to shoo-o-o-o-o-ot
The whole day down
Down down
Shoot it all -- down

Ahh-ee-ahh-ah
Ahh-ee-ahh-ah-mm

And the playingís stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with her toys awhile
And schoolís out early and soon weíll be learning
That the lesson today is how -- to -- die
And then the bullhorn cackles
And the captain tackles
With the problems and the howís and whyís
And he can see no reason
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die
Die -- oh oh oh

Tell me why
I donít like Mondays
Tell me why
I donít like Mondays
I don't like
I don't like
I donít like Mondays
Tell me why
I donít like Mondays
Tell me why
I donít like Mondays

Ooh-mm

No
I want to shoo-o-o-o-o-ot
The whole -- day -- down
Whole day
Whole day
The whole day --- down

HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN

BEST I CAN WITH RECORDING LOOPS

*Lennon shooting report*

*George Bush senior - "The second amendment gives the right of the people to keep and bear arms.  This is a dispute which is going on  in America now. .  We should work dilligently to keep this Second Amendment in place for the individual with responsibility - let me repeat again - responsibility and boundaries of those who are privileged to be a part of all of these 27 Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of America, plus the declaration of Independence"*

*George Bush Jr.  "I  believe that people who are going to commit crimes shouldn't have guns"*

*Rev.  Edison Amos "I guess my reaction is the same of every other father, every other grandfather's.  It's hard to imagine..... See I don't understand how.... making bombs and the family... doesn't have any idea of what's going on...."* 

Happiness is a warm gun x 4

Mother superior jump the gun x 10

Sheís not a girl who misses much
*Bush Sr.  "In these ten bill of rights, each one gives the people a special right"*
She's not a girl - misses much

*Bush Sr.  "This second one is a right to bear arms"*
Sheís well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand

Hand...

Keep it down
I need a fix Ďcause Iím going down. *various permutations for next while*
Cause happiness is a warm gun

Happiness is warm gun (mama)

I need

She's not a girl who misses much
Mother Superior ohhhh

I need a fix cuz I'm going down

Down to the bits that  I left uptown

I need a fix cuz I'm going down.
Mother Superior Jump the Gun

Happiness is a warm gun, mama....

RAINING BLOOD

Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
Death will be their acquisition
The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me, the skyís crimson tears
Abolish the rules made of stone
Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above
Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away
Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood

REAL MEN

Take your mind back
I donít know when
Sometime when it always seemed to be just us and them
Girls that wore pink
And boys that wore blue
Boys that always grew up better men than me and you

Whatís a man now
Whatís a man mean
Is he rough or is he rugged
Cultural and clean
Now itís all changed Itís got to change more
We think itís getting better but nobodyís really sure

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
Mmmhmmmm -- MhmmMmmm
Mmmhmmmm -- MhmmMmmmM
Ahh-ahh-ahhhhh-ah

See the nice boys
Dancing in pairs
Golden earring golden tan
Blow-wave in the hair
Sure theyíre all straight Straight as a line
All the guys are macho
See their leather shine

You donít want to sound dumb
Donít want to offend
So donít call me a faggot not unless you are a friend
Then if youíre tall
Handsome and strong
You can wear the uniform and I could play along

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
Mmmhmmmm -- MhmmMmmm
Mmmhmmmm -- MhmmMmmmM
Ahh-ahh-ahhhhh-ah

Time to get scared
Time to change plan
Donít know how to treat a lady
Donít know how to be a man
Time to admit
What you call defeat
ĎCause thereís women running past you now and you just drag your feet

Man makes a gun
Man goes to war
Man can kill and man can drink and man can take a whore
Kill all the blacks
Kill all the reds
If thereís war between the sexes then thereíll be no people left

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real - men are

MAYBE IT'S TIME TO WAVE GOODBYE NOW....
