Lyrics

Prozac

if you?re gonna go crazy might as well do it in style
gonna go crazy might as well do it style
jump in the Bellevue caddy let us drive for awhile

put a bar in your car and drive yourself to drink
put a bar in your car and drive yourself to drink
just twelve steps away from a triple A rated shrink

relax, you?re the prozac generation so relax
we?ve got your reservation just relax
take your medication and get in the mood

you don?t have to drink
you don?t have to think
wave your hand in front of your face
you won?t even blink

she?s got all the bells and whistles
power doors and power locks
yeah this baby?s loaded
power doors and power locks
smooth out life?s bumby highway with ooh electric shocks

with devine intervention
you won?t be coming back
devine intervention
you won?t be coming back
the streets run only one way
in the Bellevue Cadillac

relax, you?re the prozac generation so relax
we?ve got your reservation just relax
take your medication and get in the mood

Must be Love

stop thinkin’ start drinkin’
she’s off duty, a real cutie
another drink and you’re doin’ alright
we all make the same mistake
at midnight
discussion, say nothin’
pushover, game over
then we regret it when the sun shines bright
we all make the same mistake at midnight
we all say the same thing after midnight
it must be love, must be love at first sight
we all say the same thing after midnight
it must be love, because it must be love
a ray of hope is all we need
and just the promise of love
we can’t believe we’re so easily deceived
bye, bye, love
crash landing
still standing
high flying
die trying
you don’t regret it
when you’re doing it right
we all make the same mistake at midnight

Havana Moon

there’s a sweet perfume, a melancholy tune
in the wind sultry notes, blend and harmonize
sweet vermouth and gin, mixed with olive skin
a perfect blend of ice and fire, dances in her eyes
i saw the light in havana, i saw the light
i saw the light, i saw the fire, burn in the night
higher and higher, ooh it had to be you
or the man in the moon
in the dark of the night, havana, takes a new lover
night after night one’s as good as another
same tune, promise the moon
italian leather shoes, russian sable too
bluejeans from a one eyed jack who let his flag unfurl
seven days in may, she keeps the pigs at bay
a lover’s broken promises, a shot heard round the world
i saw th light in havana, i saw the light
i saw the light i saw the fire, burn in the night
higher and higher, here’s to the red,white and blue
there’s a man on the moon

there’s a girl, trapped inside a woman
the woman, hides the little girl
there’s a pearl in a locket, in her pocket
she hides the key
cest la vie, cest damage, say bon uit
say anything you think will keep you safe at sea
ships, passing in the night
flashing you a light, seems so safe and warm
ships, passing in the night, bolts of flashing light
a perfect storm
there’s a boy, trapped inside a man
the man, hates the little boy
there’s a toy broken in his pocket
a little rocket, no wind up key
cest la vie, cest damage, say bon uit
say anything you think will keep you safe at sea
(chorus) ships, passing in the night

in a world, made of man and woman
pearls and rockets, locks and keys
love’s the pickpocket, picks the locks and lockets
empties all the pockets, throws away the keys

throws away the keys

Too Much Sunshine

spent some lonely nights, desperate days
all my feelings kept hidden away
spent my time hidin’ flip flopin’ decidin’
so careful every step of the way
had my share of doubts, wonderin’ what it’s all about
i spent too much sunshine saving for a rainy day
alone, inside a prison cell made up of my pride
spent time behind bars counting the scars
a bitter twist is sweeter with a double shot of wry
the first time i saw you my heart stood still
i lacked the courage, you lacked the will
i begged and i pleaded, by chance what i needed
gave you everything that i’d locked away
of you i have no doubt, and that’s what it;s all about
too much sunshine saving for a rainy day

Lay Your Money Down

Cold dark streets
Beneath the city lights
Flash cars gleam
In the pouring rain
Bold black beauties
Sell their sweet delights
Whisper softly honey
I’ll ease your pain

Don’t try to fight it
We all here tryin’ to win
Don’t be ashamed
Just the name of the game

(chorus)
lay your money down on the table
can’t you feel it pulling you in
lay your money down on the table
it’s all over before it begins
lay your money down on the table
the rule is gold
and gold don’t hold a candle to a flame

(bridge)
I see a world that would turn for free
And every where we’d go there’d be
Something for nothing

Awaken, shaken,
taken in by neon knights
Sharp cats lookin’ for an easy mark
High roller, big spender,
surrendered to the city lights
You feel it cut just like the teeth of a shark

Don’t try to fight it
We all trying to win
Who you gonna blame
The moth or the flame

(chorus)

lay your money down on the table
can’t you feel it pulling you in
lay your money down on the table
it’s all over before it begins

Pull the Plug

hey gen x kids out there
better listen you best beware
baby boomers are goin? grey
soon they’ll be on medicaid

now when the few support the many
they gonna suck up every penny
don’t be fooled by that guilt trip
they can live forever on that morphine drip

pull the plug and flat line em
pull the plug and flat line em
pull the plug and flat line em
lord have mercy and bye bye

send mom and dad and uncle joe
to the family reunion in heaven
just like the big chill video down at the seven eleven

you need a plan and a way to sell it
clever story and a way to tell it
something they’ll follow religiously
like a rock n roll heaven fantasy
elvis, marylyn, JFK, and his wife
all in a Woodstock nation afterlife
where music?s free like Jerry said
they?ll all be the really grateful dead

pull the plug and flat line em
pull the plug and flat line em
pull the plug and flat line em
lord have mercy and bye bye

Blues on Sunday

five days a week I’m workin’ my life away
Saturday morning I got out to play
but I never over do
but you know that if I do
Monday morning comes too soon
I get the blues on Sunday

first day of the month
I wish it would go away
just like my paychecks
they get lost along the way
now the rent is over due
and when the rent is due
Monday morning comes too soon
I get the blues on Sunday

blues on Sunday
blues on Sunday
blues on Sunday
blues on Sunday
you know what I’m saying is true
Monday morning comes too soon
I get the blues on Sunday

Monday leaves me reelin
Tuesday’s still a shock
Wednesday’s uphill battle
tween a hard place and a rock
Thursday shows no mercy
Friday pays the bills
Saturday is the only day
I can buy myself a thrill

I’m waiting for the weekend
so that I can be with you
save my hugs and kisses
and a bottle of wine or two
up in my cozy little room
when I’m snugglin up with you
Monday morning comes to soon
I get the blues on Sunday

Cuppa Joe

cappuccino cafe late
mochacino extra foamy
espresso shot hot hits the spot
italy bought totally hot
what’ll you buy today

with your eyes half open wide
stare at the board and can’t decide
the line behind you hates your guts
this new obsessions chock full o nuts

cuppa joe
without the java jive
cuppa joe
in a small town dive
nothing could be finer
than just sitting in a diner
drinking joe with no designer java jive

cafe aulait, mocha java
flavor shot ala quick kava
espresso shot hot hits the spot
italy bought totally hot
what’ll you buy today

we’re all wired nation wide
new age zen on turbo glide
superstar bucks for a raise
price is high enough to end the phrase

cuppa joe
without the java jive
cuppa joe
in a small town dive
nothing could be finer
than just sitting in a diner
drinking joe with no designer java jive

I’ll have a grande cappuccino, Columbian supremo,
half cafe decafe, flavor shot of hazel nut,
small cafe latte, skim me on the latte,
mocha java cava, and a coffee of the day,
two expresso decafes and a small cafe aulait
no wait, i’ll have a tall mocchacino extra foamy steamy whole
whipped on top with chocolate cinnamon and sprinkle it
no now come to think of it blue blend I’ll take a pound
cd too I like the sound
anything you got I’ll buy cause I’m a hyperactive guy

Three Rules

i’ve got 3 rules and a shiny penny
only 3 rules and a shiny penny
some’s got a life, some don’t have any
i never lie, i never cheat, i never steal
i never lie, i never cheat, and i never steal
some say i might, but i know i never ever will
when you add it all up, numbers don’t matter
lines in the sand, soon scatter
all of the wishes, wished on a penny
won’t buy a fool the sense to have any
i’ve got 3 rules but i want you to break them
only 3 rules, i ask you to break them
three little promises and only you can make them
when you cheat, you’ll only cheat the devil
when you steal, you can steal my heart
when you lie, when you lie,
lie next to me

just one more jolt before I die
I’ll fly that diner in the sky
and anywhere I want to go I’ll have my favorite cup of joe

Black and White

when I was young my time was double
t.v. moms and teenage troubles
everything I watched was black and white

I come home each day from school
and watch old rko cartoons
all those cats and mice in black and white

they’d jump and jive
roll their eyes
sakes alive
I was mesmerized

bumble bees with famous faces
dine and dance in fancy places
hollywood and vine was quite a sight

start out in a real brown derby
then turn sardis topsy turvy
all the stars were out in black and white

they’d jump and jive
roll their eyes
sakes alive
I was mesmerized

lombard harlow marx and gable
horses skunks and minks in sable
putting on the ritz in black and white

but the music I remember more
count basie, duke and louis Jordan
made my favorite colors black and white

they’d jump and jive
roll their eyes
sakes alive
I was mesmerized

Blow Wind Blow

up north it’s cold in winter
i like the sun down south
i got no money so me and my honey
got to make the heat ourself

i’d rather be out walking
half naked on the beach
got so many clothes
every time that it snows
can’t even see me feets

blow wind blow
blow me down south of the border
copa cabana suprise
blow wind blow
blow me down south that’s an order
nobody get nervous, pay me lip service
and kiss your assets goodbye

political winds are shifting
cigar smoke blows in the breeze
the talk in manhatten speaking pig latin
in castro convertable ease

yo la tengo americano
dance you round and i get rich
finders keepers hookers with beepers
just like miami beach

no more snow
wrap your lips round my partega
have a havana suprise
no more dough
blow me back over the border
nobody get nervous pay me lip service
then maybe nationalize

blow wind blow, blow wind blow
blow wind blow wind blow wind blow

Hazel Eyes

cold was the night
targets in sight
just another have gun for hire
then our eyes met
thru the telescopic lens
in a split second flash of desire
the last thing I expected to see
a pair of double crosses they were staring at me

hazel eyes
dark eyelashes
hazel eyes
thunder cracks and lighting flashes
hazel eyes
made me see
life flash by in the blink of an eye
I realize it’s me

feel my pulse
feel it quicken
the time runs out I hear it ticking
the plot unwinds
I’m sick and tired of the game

strange twist of fate
made me hesitate
she could have blown me away
slight change of plan
and a fast two hundred grand
in a double double cross getaway
it was love at first sight and we knew
I grabbed the moment the money and you

hazel eyes
dark eyelashes
hazel eyes
thunder cracks and lighting flashes
hazel eyes
made me see
life flash by in the blink of an eye
I realize it’s me

Call of the Wild

in the city
asphalt jungle
walter mitty?s backstreet bungalow
with grey flannel wood paneled walls of
the modern monkey man

hear the chatter everyday
doesn?t matter what they say
listen to the voice in you
take me by the hand

when your heart?s in heat your dancin? feet
do the monkey rhythm to the jungle beat

swing
it?s the call of the wild
swing
after awhile your king kong
swing
tarzan style
swing
honey chile hang on

monkey see monkey do
monkey me monkey you
mamma too pappa ooh mau mau

monkey see monkey do
monkey me monkey you
mamma too pappa ooh mau mau

were so busy, never seem to stop
we get dizzy climbin? to the top
to shake the money tree for chimpanzees
fighting over peanuts in the promised land

hear the chatter everyday
doesn’t matter what they say
listen to the voice in you
take me by the hand
when your heart’s in heat
your dancing feet
do the monkey rhythm to the jungle beat

swing
it?s the call of the wild
swing
after awhile your king kong
swing
tarzan style
swing
honey chile hang on

Monkey Tune

I can tell by your hair
You got monkey in you somewhere
You’re bound to look like a monkey When you get old
When you get old
When you get old
Bound to look like a monkey
When you get old

I can see by the smile
You’ve known tarzan Quite a while
You’re bound to look like a monkey
When you get old
When you get old
Bound to look like a monkey
When you get old

There’s something that’s just wrong
About king kong in a thong
with that red lipstick, makeup and that crazy hair
I wrote you this song
But you don ‘t sing along
You just go ooh ooh eee ah ha
And then you stop and stare………..

If Darwin looked into your eyes
He woulda won a nobel prize
You’re bound to look like a monkey When you get old
When you get old
Bound to look like a monkey
When you get old

Your bra is made of coconut
You got a big red baboon butt
Bound to look like a monkey
When you get old, When you get old
Bound to look like a monkey
When you get old
