01. No Surprize

1971, we all heard the starters gun
New York is such a pity
But at Max's Kansas City we won

We all shot the shit at the bar
With Johnny O' Toole and his scar
And then old Clive Davis said
He's surely gonna make us a star
I'm gonna make you a star
Just the way you are

But with all his style
I could see in his eyes
That we is goin' on trial
And it was no surprize

The boys kept kickin' ass
As usual time would tell
But some bitch in the choir
Throw water on the fires of hell
She loved to show and tell
Lord, she loved to tell

But with all our style
You could see in our eyes
That we is still on trial
And it was no surprize
No surprize
No surprize
No surprize

Midnight lady
Situation fetal
Vaccinate your ass with your phonograph needle

I say looky here
Friend of mine
You scratch like you need calamine
Flamingo boots, soles a creakin'
Still in love and Puerto Rican too

Ridin' on wheels of hell
Smokin' our axle grease
Oh, the backstage is rockin'
And we're coppin' from the local police
That's right, the local police
Or the juctice of peace

But with all our style
You could see in our eyes
That we is still on trial
Baby, it's no surprize
No surprize
No surprize
No surprize

Rock n' roll, junkie whore
Got my foot inside the door
Knock knock, knock knock, knock
Nobody's keepin' score

Bad times go away
Come again some other day
Topaz and sazzafraz
Will keep the blues away

Candy store, rock n' roll
Corporation jellyroll
Play the singles, it ain't me
It's programmed insanity

You ASCAP, if BMI
Could ever make a mountain fly
If Japanese can boil teas
Then where the fuck's my royalties...aar
Yak yak yak yak 'oow


02. Chiquita

Ooooh, on the beach in Cartegena
She, salty baby with the name
Oh, chiquita
No no, chiquita

She, takes me walkin' in de sunshine
She, she'll be lovin' 'til de moon shine

Love chiquita
Oh no chiquita

She, got the poppy eyed desire
Tease, 'til the boys put out your fire

Love chiquita
Oh, no chiquita

Oh, no, no, now don't you wake me up, I'm dreamin'
No, no, no, if you shake me I'll be screamin'

Love chiquita
Oh, no chiquita


03. Remember (Walking In The Sand)

Seems like the other day
My baby went away
She went away, 'cross the sea

It's been two years or so
Since I saw my baby go
And then this letter came for me

It said that we was through
She found somebody new
Oh, lemme think, lemme think
What shall I do

Oh, no
Oh, no
Oh, no no no no no
Remember, walking in the sand
Remember, walking hand in hand
Remember, the night was so exciting
Remember, her smile was so inviting
Remember, then she touched my cheek
Remember, with her fingertips
Remember, softly
Softly we met with a kiss

Whatever happened to
The girl that I once knew
The girl that said, she'd been true
Oh, whatever happened to
That night I gave it to you
What will I do with it now
Oh...

Oh, no
Oh, no
Oh, no no no no
Remember, walking in the sand
Remember, walking hand in hand
Remember, the night was so exciting
Remember, her smile was so inviting
Remember, a then she touched my cheek
Remember, with her fingertips
Remember, softly
Softly we met with a kiss

Whatever happened to
That girl that I once knew
That girl that said, she'd been true
Whatever happened to
That night I gave it to you
What would you do with it now


04. Cheese Cake

I met a babe in a backseat drive-in
Back in the saddle she'd sit
Pulled on the reins just to keep me risin'
She loved to chomp at the bit

Daddy do it, ooh, just do it
Daddy do it, please let me see
Do it, please just do it daddy
Do it, do it, drivin' me crazy

She always walks with her eyes
Down on her bootlace
She lives to give it away
She don't believe in the right time or the wrong place
She's always liable to say

Daddy do it, ooh, just do it
Daddy do it, please let me see
Do it, please just do it daddy
Do it, do it, drivin' me crazy

Cheese cake, looser than her sister
Cheese cake, uum...her sugar gets me high
She knows I can't resist her
Cheese cake
Got my fingers in her pie
Cheese cake
Cheese cake, sneakin' out the back door
Cheese cake, rollin' down the lawn
Everybody kissed her, cheese cake
Oh, at the crack of dawn, cheese cake

Daddy do it, ooh, just do it
Daddy do it, please let me see
Daddy do it, please just do it daddy
Do it, do it, do it, drivin' me crazy

Cheese cake, looser than her sister
Cheese cake, uum...her sugar gets me high
She knows I can't resist her
Cheese cake
Got my fingers in her pie
Cheese cake

Cheese cake
Cheese cake
Cheese cake
Cheese cake
Cheese cake
Cheese cake
Cheese cake
Cheese cake


05. Three Mile Smile

Oh...
Take a walk in the warm New England sun
Ain't no time to look for clues
You get the point from Uncle Sam's loaded gun
Who be the hand that light the fuse

A take a look, take a look at my old billy goat
He used to raise all kinds of hell
He took a dose of radiation dope
A back in the barn is where he felt, like hell

Aar...Lucy, chromosome
Lucy, superdome

What makes you think you patronizin' my old friends
After you ride in my car, car
What do you do when your oil's Mexican
OPEC boys, you went too far, too far

Aar...Lucy, superdome
Lucy, chromosome
Aar...Lucy, papadum
Lucy, sing the song

(Ah), dig it up
(Ah), live it up
(Ah), a dig it up
(Ah), live it up

Look out!


06. Reefer Head Woman

I got a reefer headed woman
She fell right down from the sky, good Lord
I got a reefer headed woman
She fell right down from the sky
Well, I gots to drink me two fifths of whiskey
Just to get half as high

When the good Lord made that woman
He sure went to town
When the good Lord made that woman
He sure went to town
Well, when he was feelin' high
He sure should have been feelin' low

Mr Perry

I got a reefer headed woman
Lord, she fell right down from the sky
Little reefer headed woman
She fell right down from the sky
Lord, I got to drink me two fifths of whiskey
Just to get, just to get half as high


07. Bone To Bone (Coney Island White Fish Boy)

Flatbush boy cruisin' Sheepshead Bay
His boardwalk mama just a sniff away
Underground DMT, ridin' thunder train
The Coney Island white fish boy is on the run again

Ooooh, runnin' with the pack
Ooooh, and never lookin' back
Ooooh, know's just where he's been
That Coney Island white fish boy's
Been there and back again

Sixteen years with his boardwalk queen
And at steeplechase, she used to wet his dreams
She combs her hair, that flamin' jewel
Streaked with Clorox bleach
Coney gettin' down and dirty
Snortin' up the beach

And she'd be screamin' (Coney)
And she'd be dreamin' (Coney)
Go get 'em Coney

(Coney), Bone To Bone screamin'
(Coney) She be screamin' (Coney)

In town
Get back in town
Get back, a get down
Get back in town
Coney!
She'd be screamin' (Coney)
Best believe it (Coney)


08. Think About It

When will the clouds all blow it away
When will the good people have their say
Now I hope you're still around to see the day

Take a while, Think About It
Take a while, Think About It
Take a while, Think About It

Who's gonna tell what is up or down
Who can be the king or be the clown
Then climb your tree, take a look around

Take a while, Think About It
Take a while, Think About It
Take a while, Think About It

Take it nobody out, if it in the tame
That which is now, will be again
Who can decide who is insane

Take a while, Think About It
Take a while, Think About It
Take a while, Think About It


09. Mia
