Lyrics

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

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

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

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

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

Pay Pay Pay

pay pay pay the devil pay
pay pay pay the devil pay
the life you’re leadin’
smokin’ and drinkin’
turn you old and gray

play play play all nite and day
play play play all nite and day
pick you up in a big black car
and chauffeur you away
pay pay pay the devil pay

you ought to be more careful
watching what you eat
living carefree like a fool
on one night’s sleep a week

day by day you waste away
day by day you waste away
carve your neame ihn a block of stone
put your feets down in a hole
pay pay pay with your soul

you ought to be more careful
or stumble off the track
living carefree like a fool
you’ll have a heart attack

any day may be the day
any day may be the day
on that day the devil come
knock right on your door
pay pay pay forever more

Goes Around

who says i lack the natural manners
pardon me if i refuse
i don’t need bright lights and banners
think i know when i’ve been used
now i just can’t keep from laughing
this is too good to be true

what goes around comes around
straight up straight down
what goes up comes back down
what goes around comes around

i’ve seen some great manipulators
man you sure can work a crowd
see you later alligator
all your tears are crocadile
yeah, i know you don’t believe me
you’ll believe me after awhile

what goes around comes around
straight up straight down
what goes up comes back down
what goes around comes around

you take a walk out on the wild side
next day you go to church
when they think they finally find you
you leave em all out on a lurch
there’s a hole in your story a mile wide
inquring minds they wanna know
all the dirty little details
on some tv show

there’s way too many icons
everyday they’re in the news
hanging right there next to jesus
on a cross of self abuse
they say jesus, you look tired
he says jesus so do you

Stay

started out as lovers often do
then somehow it got a little too rough
so many times i try to control myself
it’s really tough
but i can change
give me one more chance
stay
i can’t let you walk away
stay
i can’t let you walk away
i can change

i never meant to hurt you
i’m so sorry when you  cry
first the fight then the makeup
sometimes you make me so damn mad
my self control is all i had
at times i want to take you
pick you up and shake you
tonite i’m gonna make you
stay
i can’t let you walk away

it’s four in the morning
i can’t sleep
some bad things in my head
you told me you’re leaving
this time it’s true
but i think we’d be better off dead
love is strange
give me one last shot

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
