01. Young Lust

Young lust
Happy just to be in lust
Never have to eat no dust
Everybody talk about
Young lust
You're dyin' and you're screamin' inside
Oh you're guilty way before you been tried
It's crazy but you're diggin' it

Young lust
You feel it in the summertime blues
Oh, easy when there's nothin' to lose
And baby you been missin' out
Young lust
Sometimes you need it so bad
It's enough to drive a young girl mad
So what you gonna do about it

A little bit o' nasty
You look a little sleazy
But don't get any on you

Young lust
You better keep your daughter inside
Or she's gonna get a dose of my pride
Yeah, everybody talks about it
Young lust
Once you had it you can never go back
Don't you ever let 'em give you no slack
When you're streakin' down the alley way

Checkin' out the ladies
Who didn't bring their boyfriends
Who love to get in trouble
I got to say I'll see you later, meet me in the elevator

Always gettin' stronger
Never gettin' weaker
My love is gettin' longer
I'll keep it in my sneaker
Never keep a secret
Never feelin' guilty
Never gettin' lonely
Never gettin' no peace, hidin' from the police

Sneakin' out the back way
Sneakin' down the alley way
Gotta do it my way
Do it in the sunshine
Hangin' from the clothesline
Find another tree to climb

Young lust
There's no time for lovin'
Young lust
No, don't need one in the oven
Young lust
I'm a-pushin' and a-shovin' it

Young lust
Come on now I just can't wait
Are you fishin' or you gonna cut bait
Everybody body doin' it
Young lust
Honey now ain't it a bitch
Sometime you gotta scratch that itch
So what you gonna do about it


02. F.I.N.E.

Hot wax drippin'
Honey what do you say
I got a brand new record

Cause in the pink she look so fine

But the wrong keyhole
And I'm ready, so ready

On a Saturday night

It kinda keeps my ass in line
One little french kiss honey that's my kinda trash

03. Going Down/Love In An Elevator

Workin' like a dog fo de boss man
Workin' for de company
I'm bettin' on the dice I'm tossin'
I'm gonna have a fantasy
But where am I gonna look?
They tell me that love is blind
I really need a girl like an open book
To read between the lines

Love in an elevator
Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground

Jacki's in the elevator
Lingerie second floor
She said 'can I see you later
And love you just a little more?'
I kinda hope we get stuck
Nobody gets out alive
She said I'll show ya how to fax in the mailroom honey
And have you home by five

Love in an elevator
Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground

In the air, in the air, honey one more time not it ain't fair
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down

Love in an
Elevator
Goin' down

Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I hit the ground

Gonna be a penthouse pauper
Gonna be a millionaire
I'm gonna be a real fast talker
And have me a love affair
Gotta get my timin' right
It's a test that I gotta pass
I'll chase you all the way to the stairway honey
Kiss your sassafras

Love in an elevator
Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down
Love in an elevator
Livin' it up 'til I hit the ground

Do you care? Do you care?
Honey one more time now it ain't fair.
Love in an elevator
Livin' it up when I'm goin' down


04. Monkey On My Back

Woe is me
Well I been dyin'
Got to get that monkey off my back
The fortune teller looked into my eyeballs
The wrinkles on her face about to crack
She said you best believe it, you ain't goin' nowhere
Unless you get that monkey off your back
Well, I made believe the devil made me do it
I was the evil leader of the pack
You best believe I had it all and then I blew it
Feedin' that fuckin' monkey on my back
Ah, if you put it in a spoon man I would boot it
Some king whose mental house was just a shack
Where do you draw the line
When all your friends are dyin'
Got to get that monkey off your back
Your crystal ball is where you chase the dragon
She said now bring me home his head inside a sack
But now you find your crystal balls are draggin'
Got to get that monkey off your back


05. Water Song/Janie's Got A Gun

Dum, dum, dum, honey what have you done?
Dum, dum, dum it's the sound

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her whole world's come undone
From lookin' straight at the sun
What did her daddy do?
What did he put you through?

They found him underneath a train
But man, he had it comin'
Now that Janie's got a gun
She ain't never gonna be the same

Thunder knew that someone had to stop the rain

Mm mm mm, mm mm mm, mm mm mm,
Mm mm mm mm mm, Yeah

Lovin' you has go to be (take me to the other side)
Like the devil and the deep blue sea (take me to the other side)
Forget about your foolish pride (take me to the other side)
Oh take me to the other side (take me to the other side)

My mamma told me there'd be days like this
And man she wasn't foolin'
'Cause I just can't believe the way you kiss
Uh uh huh
You opened up your mouth with baited breath
You said you'd never leave me.
You love me, you hate me, I tried to take the loss
You're cryin' me a river but I got to get across

Lovin' you has go to be (take me to the other side)
Like the devil and the deep blue sea (take me to the other side)
Forget about your foolish pride (take me to the other side)
Oh take me to the other side (take me to the other side)

I'm lookin' for another kind of love
Oh Lordy, how I need it.
The kind that likes to leap without a shove
Oh, honey, best believe it.
To save a lot of time and foolish pride I'll say what's on my mind, Girl
You loved me, you hate me, you cut me down to size.
You blinded me with love and yeah it opened up my eyes

Lovin' you has got to be (take me to the other side)
Like the devil and the deep blue sea (take me to the other side)
My conscience got to be my guide (take me to the other side)
Oh honey take me, take, take, take, take, take

Take me to the other side
I'm lookin' for another kind of love
Oh Lordy, how I need it.
The kind that likes to leap without a shove
Honey, best you believe it.
Now I ain't one for sayin' long goodbyes.
I hope all is forgiven
You loved me, you hate me, I used to be your lover
You know you had it comin' girl so take me to the other side
Take me to the other side, take me to the other side

Lovin' you has got to be (take me to the other side)
Like the devil and the deep blue sea (take me to the other side)
My conscience got to be my guide (take me to the other side)
Oh honey take me to the other side

Lovin' you has go to be (take me to the other side)
Like the devil and the deep blue sea (take me to the other side)
Forget about your foolish pride (take me to the other side)
Oh take me to the other side (take me to the other side)


07. My Girl

My girl, she breathes hellfire
And my girl, she feeds my desire
My girl Sadie she's the wind in my sails
A puss n' boots lady with a cat o' nine tails
Comin' after you honey, feet don't fail me now
My girl, she's bareback rider
And my girl, she's Lady Godiva
She's a full-time lover no mon ami
Sweeter than honey from a honey bee
And it all rubs off on little old me-oh-my
Slippin' in and out of love
My girl, she smokes barbed wire
And my girl can't get no higher
I made it with the lady with the one-track mind
Diamonds in the rough they're so hard to find
Day after day, the same old grind and grind and...
My girl


08. Don't Get Mad, Get Even

I'll tell you little secret make you want to jump and shout
When you talk to me in circles take your foot out of your mouth
It's hard enough to make it when you're livin' on the street
And you want to tell somebody but you got to be discreet
Then you catch your girlfriend with her skirt hiked up to here
Honey, don't get mad, get even

Don't get mad, get even

Say the times they be a-changin' though the blind lead the blind
You know your head is empty though there's somethin' on your Mind
Been shackin' up with Lucy, then when the morning comes
You're with Sally in the alley and the junkies and the bums
You wonder why your girlfriend has her skirt hiked up to here
Honey, don't get mad, get even

Don't get mad, get even

(...'til I can see the white o' your eyes, baby...)
(...I'm gonna kick ass...)
(...Just wait 'til you see what I got in store for you)

Roll the dice get lucky 'cause they roll you for the dime
You got nothin' else to lose if you only lose your mind
When pleasure that is shallow causes trouble to be deep
You've been dusted with the devil while he sweeps you off your Feet

I'll tell you little secret make you want to jump and shout
When you talk to me in circles take your foot out of your mouth
It's hard enough to make it when you're livin' on the street
And you hate to be a wiseguy when your feet are in concrete
Oh, sleepin' with the dogs, and you wake up with the fleas
Honey, don't get mad, get even


09. Hoodoo/Voodoo Medicine Man

I was left as a child
Dragged from the cradle, I was weaned in the wild
Ran with the wolfpack, flesh torn to shreds
In the compensations, I was left there for dead

Read it in the paper it ain't fair
You know who today don't seem to care
Livin', lovin', gettin' loose
Masturbatin' with a noose
Now someone's kickin' out the chair

Some kind of voodoo
Come across this land
Some kind of voodoo
Voodoo medicine man

Everybody's lookin' at the sky
Don't believe the coverups and lies
They been tellin' us since birth
Pissin' off old Mother Earth
My gones are bygones prophesied

Get ready

Wonder should I go or should I stay
'Cause what we got ain't workin' anyway
I did my best, God knows I tried
I feel like I been crucified
Why did you take it all away

Voodoo, voodoo, medicine man


10. What It Takes

There goes my old girlfriend, there's another diamond ring
And, uh, all those late night promises I guess they don't mean a Thing
So baby, what's the story? Did you find another man?
Is it easy to sleep in the bed that we made?
When you don't look back I guess the feelings start to fade away
I used to feel your fire
But now it's cold inside
And you're back on the street like you didn't miss a beat, yeah

Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go
Tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night
Without thinking you lost everything that was
Good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me what it takes to let you go

Yeah
Girl, before I met you I was F.I.N.E. Fine
But your love made me a prisoner, yeah my heart's been doing Time
You spent me up like money, then you hung me out to dry
It was easy to keep all your lies in disguise
'Cause you had me in deep with the devil in your eyes

Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go
Tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night
Without thinking you lost everything that was
Good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me what it takes to let you go

Tell me that you're happy that you're on your own Yeah, yeah, Yeah
Tell me that it's better when you're all alone
Tell me that your body doesn't miss my touch
Tell me that my lovin' didn't mean that much
Tell me you ain't dyin' when you're cryin' for me

Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go
Tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night
Without thinking you lost everything that was
Good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me what it takes to let you go

Tell me what it takes to let you go
Tell me how the pain's supposed to go
Tell me how it is that you can sleep in the night
Without thinking you lost everything that was
Good in your life to the toss of the dice?
Tell me who's to blame for thinkin' twice
No no no no 'cause I don't wanna burn in paradise
Ooo Let go, let go, let go,
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go,
Let it go, let it go, let it go,
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
I don't wanna burn, I don't wanna burn
