SAMURAI

[spoken: "you do your thing"]

My Samurai said going to the sanctuary
I knew about my love too
my Samurai done making a liar of me when
to be happy
to be you
he says

My Samurai take me down to the sanctuary
and I'm free
gonna be
you know me
you know me
I said I'm gonna be
gonna be
you know me

My Samurai taking my face
and she's sticking it on a daisy
and you

[spoken: "I think I cut that one too. I get the Samurai book out and just read words"]

SIREN

And you know you're
Gonna lie to you
In your own way

and I lie some other day
You do, yeah
And you say girl

Know know too well
Know the chill
Know she breaks
My siren

Know teenage flesh
Know the chill
Know she breaks
My siren

Never was one
For a prissy girl
Coquette
Call in for an ambulance
Reach high
Doesn't mean she's holy
Just means
She's got a cellular handy
Almost brave
Almost pregnant
Almost in love vanilla

And you know you're
Gonna lie to you
In your own way

And you don't need
The light on to guide you
Through the southern lands
Go said go yes

SISTER JANET

Master Shaman
I have come
With my dolly from the Shadowside
With a demon and an Englishman.
I'm my mother
I'm my son
Nobody else
Is slipping the blade in easy
Nobody else
Is slipping a blade in the marmalade

And all the angels
And all the wizards black and white
Are lighting candles in our hands
Can you feel them
Touching hands before our eyes
And I
Can even see sweet Maryanne

Sister Janet
You have come
From the woman clothed with the sun
Your veil is quietly becoming none
Call the wanderer
He is come
And all those up there
Are making it look so easy
With your perfect wing
A wing can cover all sorts of things

But all the angels
And all the wizards black and white
Are lighting candles in our hands
Can you feel them
touching hands before our eyes
And I
Can even see sweet Maryanne

Hey....
I think I could try this once again

SISTER NAMED DESIRE

Got a sister named Desire
They dont let you like those little boys
by their house
On the back yard swing
I know of it cause
I thought we told some little sweet stories
In the parking lot

They say that girl lost her sway
The say that girl lost her sway that day
Mm mm mm mm mm, mm mm

God I'd like to drag him for a long way 'cause maybe I
Then I'd just cry a little tear near him
To that sleepy safe place
And I'm gonna take him by myself if I've got to go
Don't let you know, let you know where she goes to
with those, me as I interfere
That girl lost her sway
They say that girl lost her sway that day

Mm, mm, mm, mm
Teach me about them old worlds big brother
and in an elevator
where somebody can get out
With the
sound
They say that girl lost her sway
Just watch it
Just watch it slip through my hands, Boy
Watch it go
Oh, what you know, ooh

I guess
I see
Just see
'Cause she still can sway
Na na na na na na
Na na na

SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT - Lyrics by Kurt Cobain

Load up on guns
bring your friends
it's fun to lose and to pretend
she's overbored and self-assured
oh no, I know a dirty word
hello, hello, hello, hello
hello hello

I'm worst at what I do best
and for this gift I feel blessed
our little group has always been
and always will be until the end
hello, hello, hello, hello
hello hello

with the lights out it's less dangerous
here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
here we are now, entertain us
yes
hello
hello, hello

with the lights out it's less dangerous
here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
here we are now, entertain us

yes, a mulatto
an albino
a mosquitto
my libido
a denial
a denial

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

somewhere over the rainbow way up high
there's a land that i heard of once in a lullaby
somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

one day i'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
where troubles melt like lemon drops
way above the chimney tops,
that's where you'll find me

somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
birds fly over the rainbow,
why oh why can't i?

where troubles melt like lemon drops
way above the chimney tops
that's where you'll find me
somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
birds fly over the rainbow, why oh why can't i?

SONG FOR ERIC

I wait all day for my sailor and sometimes he comes
See you over hill and dale
Riding on the wind I see
You know me, you know me like the nightingale
"Oh fair maiden I see you standing there"
Will you hold me for just a fair time
The tune is playing in the fair night
I see you in my dreams
Fair boy your eyes haunt me


STRANGE FRUIT - (B. HOLIDAY)

Southern trees bear strange fruit
Blood on the leaves
Blood at the root
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees
Pastoral scene of the gallow south
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
The scent of magnolia sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh
Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
for the rain to gather
for the wind to suck
for the sun to rot
for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

SUGAR

Don't say morning's come
Don't say it's up to me
If I could take 25 minutes
I'd have the record books

Sugar
He brings me sugar

Bobby's collecting bees
And hammers, he used one on me
Cold walls, little boys
Get in with them, bubble gum tree
And.....

Sugar
Bring me sugar
And all the robins bring
Bring me many things but....
Sugar
He brings me sugar

As far as I can tell
I've been gone for miles now

And you know, and I know
I don't know me very well
And I know, and you know
If they found me, ah

Sugar
He brings me sugar
And all the robins bring
They bring me many things but....
Sugar
He brings me sugar
And all the robins bring
They bring many things but....
Sugar
Oh, sugar...


SWEET DREAMS (Feat. The Subdudes)

"Lies everywhere"
Said the Father to the son
You're peppermint Breath
Gonna choke him to death Daddy
Watch your little black sheep run
He got knives in his back
Everytime he opens up
You say "He gotta Be strong if
he wants to Be a man"
Mr. I don't know how you can have
Sweet Dreams

Land land of Liberty we're
Run by a constipated man
When you live in the past you Refuse
to see when your Daughter come home
9 months pregnant with 5 Billion points
of Light you're gonna shine then on the face
of your friends -- they've got the Earth in a sling
Got the world on her knees they've even got
Your zipper Between their Teeth
Sweet Dreams

You say that you have 'em
I say that you're a Liar
Sweet dreams

Go on and Dream
Your House is on fire

Well well Summer wind
Been catching up with me
"Elephant mind missy you don't have
You're forgettin to fly darlin when you sleep"
I got hazy lazy susan
takin turns all over my dreams
I got Lizards and Snakes
runnin through my Body
funny how they all have my face

Sweet Dreams

You say that you have 'em
I say that you're a Liar
Sweet dreams

Go on and Dream
Your House is on fire
Sweet Dreams


TAKE TO THE SKY

This house is like Russia
With Eyes cold and grey
You got me moving in a circle
I dyed my hair Red today
I just want a little passion
To hold me in the dark
I know I've got some magic
buried Deep in my heart yeah
but my priest says
You ain't savin no souls
My father says
You ain't makin any money
My Doctor says
You just took it to the limit
And here I stand
With this sword in my hand

CHORUS
You can say it one more Time
What you Don't Like
Let me hear it 1 more time then
Have a seat while I take to the sky

My heart is Like the Ocean
It gets in the way so
Close to touching freedom
then I hear the guards call my Name

but my priest says
You ain't savin no souls
My father says
You ain't makin any money
My Doctor says
You just took it to the limit
And here I stand
With this sword in my hand

CHORUS

If you don't like me just a little, well
Why Do you hang around
(There she goes again wearing those purple panties
There she goes again wearing her heart
There she goes again)
Why do you take it

Like Russia..... You can say it one more time....


CHORUS

THANK YOU

Led Zepplin

If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be lovin' you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
There'll still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all,
Kind woman, nothing more.

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain,
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
Together we shall go until we die.
My, my, my,
Inspiration's what you are to me,
Inspiration, look see.

And so today, my world it smiles,
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done,
For you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad,
Happiness....I'm glad.

THAT'S WHAT I LIKE MICK (THE SANDWICH SONG)

cheese and onion sandwiches on derby chinaware
fiddles and jigs and boogie my dog, Auntie Vee having a swear
taking my dad for a pint or two, a sunday morning stroll
licorice pipes and baggy suits, Glen Hoddle scoring a goal
catching a pike and riding my bike, old wooden wheels and a bowl of eels

yes, that's what I like boy
that's what I like

pie and mash and liquor, walking about in the rain
William books and comical looks, pianos trams and trains
coals and cockles and thunder storms, place on the wireless and now
grandfather clocks and coke and brandy
fountain pens and Beano and Dandy

yes, that's what I like boy
that's what I like

little pubs out in the country, mother pearl and Barnet Faire
the sound of the banjo barbershop singing and having a kid in the chair
butter on toast a beer from the wood and old jerry thomas' teeth
Jerry and Chuck and Cannon & Ball, a banjo picking bill keith
and old bank loads, wood burning stoves
and Shirley MacLaine and Petticoat Lane

that's what I like,
said that's what I like
yes, boy
yes that's just a...

bubble and squeak and jumble says Little Richard and Jerry Lee
bonfire night and South and that's paddlin' in the sea
polished brass and copper, salvation army bands
violins and old coach inns, and colored elastic bands
tea in the morning and winter beginnin'
fishing rods and frogs and spurs and winning years

that's what I like
hey, that's what I like

a day at the races cover the bases going down hopping in Kent
a new pair of braces little kids faces sleeping under the tent
and wagons chickens and picking blackberries and swallows and sledges
and Devon and derries and haddock and trotters and horses and knickers
and swatters and stickers and banjoes and kippers
yeah, that's I like boy
that's what I like


THE POOL

One, with her hands open
"Don't be afraid," she said
"No one will know it - just you and me."
And when it's over, I'll go back

THOUGHTS

My thoughts right now
I picked up a magazine
Here, here they go
Fifteen hundred years,
Fifteen hundred years right here
Oh, burning witches, burning books
Burning babies and their looks
Yes, indeed
Burning everything that's sacred in my jeans
Thoughts right now
She'd been everybody else's girl
Thoughts right now
Now...
Thoughts right now
Aye, right now
In my head, in my head
Never here...
I'm never here
I'm never here
I'm never, never a bird
In the flower, in the tree
In the pain of the respect thereof
Yes, indeed!
Thoughts right now
What will become of me?
Become of her?
Become of we, babe?
Yeah...

'TIL THE CHICKEN

so some say she got green enough field
and some say she got too many strings
with petticoats out and goin hall gown

the sweetest nylon no not where she's gone
gonna raise his tail and wraggle his wings

some say she got plenty of stockings
some say she got some Divas and Kramer
why all this spare then shaking her tail

the sweetest nylon no not where she's gone
gonna raise his tail and wraggle his wings
until the little chicken come home

TOODLES MR JIM

Hey yes I said yes I said Hooray hey yippee yay I said diddily hey

Toodles Mr Jim you cherry picker
Toodles I say so long
Hear that your grave's a little warm you stickler
Sing them all your happy song
It's today
Today's Sunday
By your Grave

I say Toodles Mr Jim you cherry picker
Taught me so well how to spell those red
You know she deserved that nose
Splattered
Swattered
Blood in my hands
Not a nice day for your little girl
But you came to my aid instead

But now it's Toodles Mr Jim you cherry picker
Built that ladder well
Teach me just where those boys can climb
When they've got a spell

Toodles Mr Jim you are
My sweet favourite neighbour of them all
Let those Girls go to their parties
I don't care
'Cos I'm with you
Still

[spoken: "That was Toodles Mr Jim. Mr Jim die two weeks ago. He
taught me how to pick cherries and I punched his daughter in the
nose 'cause she was mean. Mr Jim was good."]


UPSIDE DOWN

God I love to turn my little blue world upside down
God I love to turn my little blue world upside down
Inside my head the noise
Chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter
You see I'm afraid I'll always be
Still coming out of my mother upside down

Don't you love to turn this little blue girl upside down?
Oh I know you love to turn this little blue girl baby upside down
But my heart it says
You been shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter, shattered
And I know you're still a boy
Still coming out of your mother

But when you gonna stand on your own?
I say the world is sick
You say "Tell me what that makes us darlin'"
You see, you always find my faults
Faster than you find your own
You say the world is getting rid of her demons
I say "Baby what have you been smoking?"
Well I dreamed, I dreamed...
I dreamed I loved a black boy
My daddy would scream
Oh yeah

Don't you love to turn this little blue girl upside down?
Any kind of touch I think is better than none even upside down
But you see I'm tangled up
Got a kitten, kitten, kitten, kitten in my hair
Cincinnati, I like the word
It's the only thing we can seem to turn upside down

Well I found (found) the secret (secret) to life
I found (found) the secret to life (secret of life)
I'm okay when everything is not okay
I said I found (found) the secret (secret) to life
I found (found) the secret to life (secret of life)
I'm okay when everything is not okay
Is not okay

Oh, we turn and we turn our little blue world upside down
I said, don't we love to turn our little blue world baby upside
down?
Inside my head a voice
Chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter
And it says "Girl you're all the same
Still coming out of your mothers
Still coming out of your mothers upside down"

WALKING WITH YOU

Walking with you
Hand in palm, palm in hand
It's great to be your special friend
I wonder if you'll ever land
Next to my heart where you belong
Walking along
Singing a song
Walking with you

Walking with you
Heart in steps, Step on beach
Beach in sun, have some fun
It's great to be your special friend
I wonder if you'll ever hand
Over your heart to me
Walking along
Smiling our song
Walking with you

I know a place, where you can stay
Footsteps to a door open all day
Walking with you walking with you
Walking....

Walking with you
Life in eyes, light in your eye-eyes
I know you love me too.
Walking with you...
Walking with you...
Walking with you...

WHOOMP THERE IT IS

Whoomp there it is
There she goes again
In the bathroom with her shoes on
Whoomp there it is
With Kevin and Beene
A cookie in the oven
And a sherry in my scene
I said whoomp there it is
I'll tell you what she knows
I'm coming back to lay in the mud
It's a bit shakin' these days you know
But they always knew how to
Rock an' Roll
I said whoomp there it is
I gotta end this song
I don't know what's coming
If my lyrics go on
It's over now
Uh-uh
