01. Toys In The Attic

in the attic
lights
voices scream
nothin' seen
real's the dream
leaving the things that are real behind
leaving the things that you love from mind
all of the things that you learned from fears
nothin' is left for the years
repeat chorus
toys, toys, toys
in the attic


02. Uncle Salty

Uncle Salty told me stories of a lonely
baby with a lonely kind of life to lead
my mammy was lusted, Daddy he was busted
they left her to be trusted till the orphan bleeds
but when she cried at night, no one came
and when she cried at night, went insane

Uncle Salty told me when she was just a baby
that she'd get by and maybe someday she'd see
but soon she found her mother's love for all the others
the pushers and the shovers was the life to lead
but when she cried at night, no one came
and when she cried at night, went insane

oooh, it's a sunny day outside my window
oooh, it's a sunny day outside my window
oooh, oh yeah
oooh, oh yeah, yeah yeah

now she's doin any for money and a penny
a sailor with a penny or two or three
hers is the cunning for men who come a-runnin'
they all come for fun and it seems to me
that when she cried at night, no one came
and when she cried at night, went insane

oooh, it's a sunny day outside my window


03. Adam's Apple

back when Cain was able
way before the stable
lighting struck right down from the sky
a mother ship with fate said let's give it a try
conscience was related
man he was created
lady luck took him by surprise
a sweet and bitter fruit
it surely opened his eyes
well she ate it
lordy it was love at first bite
well she ate it
never knowin wrong from right

even Eve in Eden
voices tried deceiving
with lies that showed the lady the way
at first she stopped turned and tried to walk away
man he was believer
lady was deceiver
so the story goes but you see
that snake was he
she just climbed right up his tree
chorus

evil came like rainin'
who knows who's to blamin'
something tried to lay her to waste
and all she want and need was just a little taste..
chorus


04. Walk This Way

backstroke lover always hidin' 'neath the covers
till I talked to your daddy, he say
he said "you ain't seen nothin' till you're down on a muffin
then you're sure to be a-changin' your ways"
I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder
oh, the times I could reminisce
'cause the best things of lovin' with her sister and her cousin
only started with a little kiss
like this!

seesaw swingin' with the boys in the school
and your feet flyin' up in the air
singin' "hey diddle diddle"
with your kitty in the middle of the swing
like you didn't care
so I took a big chance at the high school dance
with a missy who was ready to play
wasn't me she was foolin'
'cause she knew what she was doin'
and I knowed love was here to stay
when she told me to

walk this way (8x)
just gimme a kiss
like this!

schoolgirl sweetie with a classy kinda sassy
little skirt's climbin' way up the knee
there was three young ladies in the school gym locker
when I noticed they was lookin' at me
I was a high school loser, never made it with a lady
till the boys told me somethin' I missed
then my next door neighbor with a daughter had a favor
so I gave her just a little kiss
like this!

(repeat second verse, substitute this at the end)
when she told me how to walk this way, she told me to

walk this way (8x)
just gimme a kiss
like this!


05. Big Ten Inch Record

got me the strangest woman
believe me this trick's no cinch
but I really get her going
when I whip out my big 10 inch

record of a band that plays the blues
well a band that plays its blues
she just love my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues

last night I tried to tease her
I gave my love a little pinch
she said now stop that jivin'
now whip out your big 10 inch

record of a band that plays those blues
well a band that plays the blues
she just loves my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues

I, I, I cover her with kisses
and when we're in a lover's clinch
she gets all excited
when she begs for my big 10 inch

record of a band that plays those blues
well a band that plays the blues
she just love my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues

my girl don't go for smokin'
and liquor just make her flinch
seems she don't go for nothin'
'cept for my big 10 inch

record of a band that plays the blues
band that play the blues
she just love my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues


06. Sweet Emotion

Talk about things and nobody cares
Wearing other things that nobody wears
Ya callin' my name, but I gotta make it clear
Can't say where I'm gonna be in a year.

Some sweat hog mama with a face like a gent
Said my get up and go musta got up & went.
You got good news but you're a real good liar
Cause backstage lover set your pants on fire.
Riff 8x, then sweet emotion 2x
Pulled into town in a police car
Your daddy said I took you just a little too far.
Tellin' other things, but your girlfriend lied
Can't catch me cause the rabbit done died.

Standin' in front just shakin' your ass.
Take you back stage you can drink from my glass.
Talk about something you can sure understand
Cause a month on the road and i'll be eatin' from your hand.


07. No More No More

blood stains the ivories on my daddy's baby grand
ain't seen the daylight since we started this band
no more, no more (2x)
store-bought clothes fallin' 'part at the seams
tea leaf-readin' gypsies fortune-tellin' my dreams
no more, no more (2x)
Holiday Inn, lock the door with a chain
you love 'em and you hate it but to me they're all the same
no more, no more (3x)
baby I'm a dreamer
found my horse and carriage
stalemate jailbait ladies can't refuse
you love 'em then you leave 'em with your sold out reviews
no more, no more (2x)
sweet-talkin' bar room ladies disease
slippin' with her lips slidin' down your knees
no more, no more (3x)
*** screamer
bound to a wife in marriage
baby I'm a dreamer
found my horse and carriage
ladies hold the aces while my lovers call it passion
the men call it pleasure but to me it's old fashioned
times they're a-changin' nothing ever stands still
if I don't stop changin' I'll be writin' my will
it's the same old story never get a second chance
for a dance to the top of the hill
babe I'm a dreamer
found my horse and carriage


08. Round And Round

if you believe in me
like I believe in you
you wouldn't be tellin' me things
that weren't exactly true
now everythin' changes
ain't nothin' the same
I'm gettin' the strangest feelin' baby
I can't remember my name
cause the life I been livin'
and the love I been givin'
would be sure to set you spinnin'
but you ain't never touchin' ground
and I'm round and round
well it was one for all
and it was all for one
and everything that we did
never bothered no one
can you remember the days
when you were sweet sixteen
and always caught in the blaze
of someone else's dreams
I'm goin' round and round ( x 16 )


09. You See Me Crying

You see me crying, don't let it getcha down.
You see me crying, I'm back to the lost and found.
Honey whatcha done to your head?
Honey was it the words I said?
Honey whatcha done to your head?
Honey was it the words I said?
You see me crying, say your a ladies man.
You see me crying, I'm so hard to understand.
Honey whatcha done to your head?
Honey was the words that I said?
Honey whatcha done to your head?
Honey was the words that I said?
You see me crying, please say you'll stick around.
And I got to be your lover, hon, let me take you to town.
And I'll show you everything that I know.
And I'll never let you go...
Cause my love is like a merry-go-around...
Honey whatcha done to your head?
Honey was the words that I said?
Honey whatcha done to your head?
Honey was the words that I said?
Ahhh
