Down Into Muddy Water

Now you left me here and went out on the town
I don't know when I've been so down
The sky is dark,
the moon is blue
I don't know what I'm gonna do
It's like I'm falling down into muddy water

Well the National Anthem has come and gone,
I still got the TV on,
and white noise,
a blue moon,
sitting here waiting up on you,
It's like I'm falling down into muddy water

The clock on the wall keeps rollin' on,
2 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 4 o'clock, 5
Baby, you still ain't home

Well, I've fought some sleep, in a straight back chair
morning comes and you still ain't here,
Roll on, I've had enough,
Holding on to faithless love,
It's like I'm falling down into muddy water.

The clock on the wall keeps rollin' on,
2 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 4 o'clock, 5
and Baby, you still ain't home,
Now you left me here and went out on the town,
I don't know when I've been so down,
The sky is dark,
the moon is blue,
I don't know what I'm gonna do,

It's like I'm falling down into muddy water
It's like I'm falling down into muddy water
I'm falling down into muddy water
I'm falling down into muddy water
I'm falling down into muddy water
I'm falling down into muddy water
I'm falling down into muddy water

Real Gone Lover

I'm a real gone lover
I'm hip, I'm in the know
I'm a real gone lover
I'm hip, I'm in the know
And if ya love me one time
You'll soon come back for more

Come over to my pad
Come over to my pad and play
Come over to my pad
Come over to my pad and play
Like the old saying goes
When sunshines, let's make hay

Well, I'm a nervous fella (he's a nervous fella)
I'm a nervous fella (he's a nervous fella)
I'm a little-little nervous fella
(He's a nervous fella)
I'm a little-little nervous fella
(He's a nervous fella)
I'm a nervous fella
Don't make me wait all night

I'm a real gone lover
I'm hip, I'm in the know
(Sing it with me)
I'm a real gone lover
I'm hip, I'm in the know
And if ya love me one time
You'll soon come back for more

(Come on over babe)
Come over to my pad
Come over to my pad and play
(Come on over)
Come over to my pad
Come over to my pad and play

Like the old saying goes
When the sun shines, let's make hay, ha

I'm a nervous fella (I'm a real gone lover)
I'm a nervous fella (ho, I'm a real gone lover)
I'm a n-n-n-nervous fella (and I'm a real gone lover)
I'm-m-m a n-n-n-nervous fella (and I'm a real gone lover)
I'm a nervous fella
So don't make me wait all night

(Sing one more time)

I'm a nervous fella
(He's a nervous fella)
I'm a nervous fella
(And I'm a real gone lover)

I'm a n-n-n nervous fella
(Ooo, he's a nervous fella)
I'm a n-n-n nervous fella
(And I'm a real gone lover)
I'm a nervous fella

Bad case of lovin' you

Whooaaaaa
The hot summer night fell like a net
I've got to find my baby yet
I need you to soothe my head
Turn my blue heart to red

Doctor, doctor, give me the news
I've got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I've got a bad case of lovin' you

A pretty face don't make no pretty heart
I learned that, buddy, from the start
You think I'm cute, a little bit shy
Momma, I ain't that kind of guy

Doctor, doctor, give me the news
I got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I got a bad case of lovin' you
Whooaaa

I know you like it, you like it on top
Tell me, momma, are you gonna stop?

You had me down, 21 to zip
Smile of Judas on your lip
Shake my fist, knock on wood
I've got it bad, and I've got it good

Doctor, doctor, gimme the news
I got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I got a bad case of lovin' you

Tumble And Fall

All this for nothing, yeah yeah yeah
Praying and hoping, fooling yourself
You know that you can give love a reason
Give love a chance

We tumble and fall, together we crawl
Forever we'll be, tumble and fall

Heaven's above us, yeah yeah yeah
Living in solace, I give you it all
Just for a day, just for a second,
Just for the way

We tumble and fall, together we crawl
Forever we'll be, tumble and fall

Life's not the same, since that day you went away
I recall like the drops of summer rain that fell on me
Come back to me, come back to me, yeah yeah yeah [x3]

We tumble and fall, together we crawl
Forever we'll be, tumble and fall
Together we crawl, forever we'll be, tumble and fall
Yeah yeah yeah [x6]

One Way Out

Ain't but one way out baby, Lord I just can't go out the door.
Ain't but one way out baby, and Lord I just can't go out the door.
Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know.

Lord you got me trapped woman, up on the second floor;
If I get by this time I won't be trapped no more.
So raise your window baby, and I can ease out soft and slow.
And lord, your neighbors, no they won't be
Talking that stuff that they don't know.

Lord, I'm foolish to be here in the first place,
I know some man gonna walk in and take my place.
Ain't no way in the world, I'm going out that front door
Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know.
Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know.
Cause there's a man down there,

Lord, it just might happen to be your man...
Lord, it just a might be your man,
Mmm-mm-mmm-mm...
Lord, it just a might be your man,
Oh baby, I just don't know..

Laser Love

Gold mouth lady mix a drink for me
Lay beside me a solid company

You move on up, you move on back
Your laser love is like a heart attack

Lean clean woman lay a kiss on me
My love is strong like a raging sea

You move on up, you move on back
Your laser love is like a heart attack

Dance dance dance till the crack of dawn
Dance dance dance till your shoes are worn

You move on up, you move on back
Your laser love is like a heart attack

You move on up, you move on back
Your laser love is like a heart attack


A Thousand Miles from Nowhere

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,
Time don't matter to me.
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,
And there's no place I wanna be.

I got heartaches in my pocket,
I got echoes in my head.
And all that I keep hearing,
Are the cruel, cruel things that you said.

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,
Time don't matter to me.
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,
And there's no place I wanna be.
Oh, I; Oh, I; Oh, I;
Oh, I; Oh, I; Oh, I.

I've got bruises on my memory,
I've got tear stains on my hands,
And in the mirror there's a vision,
Of what used to be a man.

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,
Time don't matter to me.
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,
And there's no place I wanna be.

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,

Time don't matter to me.
'Cause I'm a thousand miles from nowhere,
And there's no place I wanna be.

Oh, I...

I'm a thousand miles from nowhere.
I'm a thousand miles from nowhere.

This Ole House

This ole house once knew his children
This ole house once new his wife
This ole house was home and comfort as they fought the storms of life
This ole house once rang with laughter
This ole house heard many shouts
Now he trembles in the darkness when the lightning walks about.
Chorus
Ain't a gonna need this house no longer
Ain't a gonna need this house no more
Ain't got time to fix the shingles
Ain't got time to fix the floor
Ain't got time to oil the hinges nor to mend no window panes
Ain't gonna need this house no longer
He's getting ready to meet his fate
This ole house is getting shaky
This ole house is getting old
This ole house lets in the rain
This ole house lets in the cold
Oh his knees are a getting chilly
But he feels no fear nor pain
Cause he seeks a new tomorrow through a golden window pain
Chorus
This ole house is afraid of thunder
This ole house is afraid of storms
This ole house just groans and trembles when the night wind flings it arms
This ole house is getting feeble
This ole house is a needing paint
Just like him it's tuckered out
He's a getting ready to meet his fate
Chorus

Green Door

Midnight one more night without sleeping
Watching till that morning comes creeping
Green Door whats that secret your keeping
There's an old piano and they play it hot behind the green door
Don't know what they're doing but they laugh a lot behind the green door
Wish they'd let me in so I could find out what's behind the green door
Knocked once tried to tell em I'd been there
Door slammed hospitality's thin there
Wonder just what's going on in there
Saw an eye ball peep in through a smoky cloud behind the green door
When I said Joe sent me some one laughed out loud behind the green door
All I want to do is join the happy crowd behind the green door
Midnight one more night without sleeping
Watching till that morning comes creeping
Green door what's that secret your keeping
There's an old piano and they play it hot behind the green door
Don't know what they're doing but they laugh a lot behind the green door
Wish they'd let me in so I could find out what's behind the green door
Saw an eye ball peep in through a smoky cloud behind the green door
When I said Joe sent me some one laughed out loud behind the green door
All I want to do is join the happy crowd behind the green door
 

You Drive Me Crazy

You know baby when your in my arms
I can feel your love & magic charms
You drive me crazy
You drive me crazy
And when I'm looking in those big blue eyes
I starta floating down in paradise
You drive me crazy
You drive me crazy
Heaven must of sent you down
Down for you to give me a thrill
Everytime you touch me
Every time you hold me
My heart starts beating like a train on a track
I love you baby and it's plain to see
I love you honey it was meant to be
You drive me crazy
You drive me crazy

Oh
Heaven must of sent you down
Down for you to give me a thrill
Everytime you touch me
Every time you hold me
My heart starts beating like a train on a track

I love you baby and it's plain to see
I love you honey it was meant to be
You drive me crazy
You drive me crazy

And when I'm looking in those big blue eyes
I starta floating down in paradise
You drive me crazy
You drive me crazy
Oh
Crazy
You drive me crazy (repeat to fade)

A Letter To You

I tore my letter up, I couldn't even start
To tell you what's really here in my heart
There's only so much that words can so
So Isent you a piece of this beautiful day
Chorus
Oh, I want you to know that I took a rainbow
And sent it off in a letter to you
Took some flowers in the spring, mad a sweet clover ring
And sent it off in a letter to you
Took a song from the lark - The moon from the dark
A spark from the sparkling due
With a kiss and a hug and a whole lot of love
I sent 'em off in a letter to you
I took the mornin' sun, peekin' throgh the trees
And the dandelion silk tangled in the breeze
I folded 'em up - sealed 'em with a kiss
It's the kind of letter that you can't resist.
Chorus
In a day or two - just you wait and see
You're gonna get a special delivery
You'll know the way I feel - there can't be any doubt
When you open it up and let the love spill out
Chorus
 

Turning Away

None of your friends come near you
They've given up trying to steer you
Because your turning away
Turning away from love
Lately you look so ragged
The edge of your hearts become jagged
And your turning away
Turning away from love
I say your turning away turning away from love
I say your turning away turning away from love
Well she gives it to you without asking
A piece of her heart ever lasting
But your turning away
Turning away from love
Just when this old world needs all of the love it can get
Your turning away
Turning away from the one who really cares
Your turning away from love
I say your turning away
Turning away from love
Turning away
Turning away from love
Well she gives it to you without asking
A piece of her heart ever lasting
But your turning away
Turning away from love
I say your turning away
Turning away from love
Turning away
Turning away from love

Radio

Well I gotta girl and she's cute as can be
But she never pays no attention to me
She lives her life in a world full of stereo
'Cos all she ever wanna do is listen to the radio
That's all
Well I take her to the movies and it's just the same
We're just getting cozy and it's on again
Listening on the headphones - tuned in to her favourite show, Oh
'Cos all she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
All day long
I whisper sweet nothing in the side of her ear
But when I get close all I ever hear
Is some cool DJ telling me that It's going slow, oh
There doesn't seem to be a way of getting inside her head
She talks to me well it's only if the batterys dead
But then she keeps a spare and it's back to rock n roll
'Cos all she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
That's all she ever wants to do
Well I gotta girl and she's cute as can be
But she never pays no attention to me
She lives her life in a world full of stereo
It's a hopless case and I don't know what I can do
I rack my brain while she sings out of tune
Well it's switching me off and one of these days I'm gonna go, go yeah
'Cos all she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
All she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
Yeah, all she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
All she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
Radio
All she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
All she ever wants to do is listen to the radio
Real
All she ever wants to do is listen to the radiooo, Radio
Radio

Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, man have named you
You're so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only 'cause you're lonely man have blamed you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile
Do you smile to tempt a lover Mona Lisa
Or is it your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you real Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art
La la la la......
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile
Do you smile to tempt a lover Mona Lisa
Or is it your way to hide a broken heart
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you real Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art
