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

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

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

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

Guilty Words and Music: Doug Bell, Half Seas Over Music

Let’s get serious darlin’
Don’t play me a fool
I caught you red handed
You know the rule
Gotta stand up and admit it
Tell the whole world you did it
You’re guilty

This ain’t no laughin’ matter
Serious as a heart attack
They say revenge is sweetest
When you pay somebody back
I knew each time you did it
I lied to myself and hid it
You were guilty

(chorus)
Guilty, don’t need the wisdom of a judge
guilty, the evidence is clear
I knew you’d be convicted
By a jury of my tears

(bridge)
Now you may beat one count
Maybe 2 counts
But doncha count on sympathy
Girl it’s over,
you know it’s over I hear murder in the first degree

I knew it would happen
With a stroke of a pen
You can play by the rules
I play to win
Now just look who’s rich
Payback is a bitch
You’re guilty

(chorus)

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

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
