1. YOU GOT THE BLUES NOT ME ...

You Got The Blues, Not Me…

Well I’m tired of be’n a fool
And my mind goes hot to cool
And I’m try’n to conform to other’s ideas
And somebody else’s rules

The life I’m livin’ ain’t mine
I’m supposed to feel that’s fine
I didn’t make the world I’m livin’ in
Ah- I ain’t gonna’ tow the line

I’m tired of tryin’ to be someone I know ain’t me
I’m tired of livin’ up to what people expect me to be
You know some people are different,
Now ain’t that a cryin’ shame
Now wouldn’t it be a real drag if we were all the same?
And I’m not gonna’ try to please
Eyes that just don’t see
If I get myself together

Well, you’ll have the blues, not me

Wow, Go- Go- Here we go-
Ah-wow- yeh

I’m tired of tryin’ to be someone I know ain’t me
I’m tired of livin’ up to what people expect me to be
You know some people are different,
Now ain’t that a cryin’ shame
Now wouldn’t it be a real drag if we were all the same?
And I’m not gonna’ try to please
Eyes that just don’t see
If I get myself together

You’ll have the blues not me (x4)
Not me baby




2. MADE UP MY MIND

Listen while you read!
I just want you baby
To be on my side
Show me your sweet nature
Act a little nice and kind

Cause I made up my mind
I made up my mind
I made up my mind
That your the girl I want to be mine
Yes!

Oh listen to my story
Before you send me away
Please don't nail me baby
Before you hear what I have to say

Cause I made up my mind
I made up my mind,
Yes I did
I made up my mind
That your the girl I want to be mine
Oh yah!

No more tell you woman
To be so mad with me
I didn't do nothing
For you to treat me so evilly

Cause I made up my mind
I made up my mind
I made up my mind
That your the girl I want to be mine
Oh baby!

Oh listen to my story
Before you send me away
Please don't nail me baby
Before you hear what I have to say

Cause I made up my mind
I made up my mind
I made up my mind
That your the girl I want to be mine
Yeah!

I just want you baby
To be on my side
Show me your sweet nature
Act a little nice and kind

I made up my mind
I made up my mind
I made up my mind, yes
I made up my mind
Yeeeaaahhh!




3. STAY WHILE THE NIGHT IS YOUNG

Can't help myself , bad habits
Well I'm running wild, lost control
And it's a shame to think
That a boy like me
Has got so many , bad habits

Well I'm off the rails
My resistence fails tempations got
A hold on me
And I can't refuse
Because I always lose
Can't help myself
Bad habits

Well it just ain't right
That it's something I can't fight
I can't stop going out and having fun
Well I tried to be good,
But i knew i never could
Cause i've got more bad habits than anyone

When I get the urge
I just got to splurge
I'm a slave to all my desires
Well I'm in a mess
Because I can't repress all of these
Bad habits

Can't help myself
Bad Habits
Well I'm running wild
Lost control
And it's a shame to see
That a boy like me
Has so many bad habits

Well it just ain't right
It's something I can't fight
I can't stop going out and having fun
Well I tried to be good
But I knew i never could
Cause i've got more bad habits
Than anyone

When I get the urge
I just got to splurge
I'm a slave to all my desires
Well I'm in a mess
Because I can't repress all of these
Bad habits

All of these Bad habits x3

5. SHE'S LOOKING GOOD

It's gettin' late I don't know `Bout 3 a.m.
And I'm drivin' in my '57 dream
It's gettin' late Don't know just where I've been
And I'm comin' to you from All points in between

A little lovin' On my mind
A little lovin'

[Chorus]
She's my machine

She gets along Let alone She's premium
And I love to feel her Each and every night
Damn straight She's wild In overdrive
Feels like something's getting right

A little lovin' On my mind
A little lovin'

[Chorus]

[Verse3]
It's gettin' late I don't know
`Bout 3 a.m.
And I'm drivin' in my '57 dream
She's red She's wild In overdrive
And I'm coming to from all points in between

A little lovin' On my mind
A little lovin'

[Chorus]

Look out Kick it

Machine Machine
She's my machine
Machine...




6. SOUL KITCHEN

Well, the clock says its time to close now
I guess Id better go now
Id really like to stay here all night
The cars crawl past all stuffed with eyes
Street lights share their hollow glow
Your brain seems bruised with numb surprise
Still one place to go
Still one place to go

Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove
Turn me out and Ill wander baby
Stumblin in the neon groves

Well, your fingers weave quick minarets
Speak in secret alphabets
I light another cigarette
Learn to forget, learn to forget
Learn to forget, learn to forget

Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove
Turn me out and Ill wander baby
Stumblin in the neon groves.

Well the clock says its time to close now
I know I have to go now
I really want to stay here
All night, all night, all night




7. IF 6 WAS 9

If the sun refuse to shine,
I don't mind, I don't mind,
If the mountains fell in the sea,
Let it be, it ain't me.
Alright, 'cos I got my own world to look through,
And I ain't gonna copy you.

Now if 6 turned out to be 9,
I don't mind, I don't mind,
Alright, if all the hippies cut off all their hair,
I don't care, I don't care.
Dig, 'cos I got my own world to live through
And I ain't gonna copy you.

White collared conservative flashing down the street,

Pointing their plastic finger at me.
They're hoping soon my kind will drop and die,
But I'm gonna wave my freak flag high, high.
Wave on, wave on
Fall mountains, just don't fall on me
Go ahead on Mr. Business man, you can't dress like me.
Sing on Brother, play on drummer




8. THAT BEATLES TUNE

Listen while you read!
Turn off your mind, relax
And float down stream
It is not dying
It is not dying

Lay down all thought
Surrender to the void
It is shining
It is shining

That you may see
The meaning of within
It is being
It is being

That love is all
And love is everyone
It is knowing
It is knowing

That ignorance and hate
May mourn the dead
It is believing
It is believing

But listen to the
Color of your dreams
It is not living
It is not living

Or play the game
Existence to the end
Of the beginning
Of the beginning
Of the beginning
Of the beginning
Of the beginning
Of the beginning

10. LET IT ALL HANG OUT

(No lyrics available)




11. THUG POP

Hands out to your big ass,
Here's 100 beans a minute where the back says.
Thug Pop. Thug Pop.
Checks in people with her pants in a bunch,
James Dean and Hermie Fox!

[CHORUS]
People try to blame me,
Poets try the same.
I'm tryin to hear from the mildew
to the barbeque on a hellbound train...
Longshot? That's bitchin'
Served hot right from the rhythm kitchen.
Perhaps you know my name...

I'm called: Thug Pop. Thug Pop.

When the resurrection comes,
there'll be a two drink minimum.
Thug Pop. Thug Pop.
Are you ready for some freestyle?
Undress, stay awhile.

All right, let's go to the back!

Woo!

People try to blame me,
Poets try the same.
I'm tryin to hear from the mildew
to the barbeque on a hellbound train...
Longshot? That's bitchin'
Served hot right from the rhythm kitchen.
Perhaps you know my name...

People try to blame me,
Poets try the same.
I'm tryin to hear from the mildew
to the barbeque on a hellbound train...
Longshot? That's bitchin'
Served hot right from the rhythm kitchen.
Perhaps you know my name...

I'm called: Thug Pop.
Perhaps you know my name...
Perhaps you know my name...
I'm called: Thug Pop.

13. ICE CREAM MAN

Listen while you read!
Don't you worry bout the morning
Because the day might never come
Don't worry bout the future
Just stay while the night is young

Don't pretend that its your first time
Don't pretend that its not fun
Don't tell me bout your mother
Just stay while the night is young

Its so easy to relax if you try
(Relax if you try)
Please don't think about the time going by
You can tell me bout the things on your mind
(Things on your mind)
Just lie back and unwind

Its so easy to relax if you try
(Relax if you try)
Please don't think about the time going by
You can tell me bout the things on your mind
(Things on your mind)
Just lie back and unwind

Don't say, don't say, don't say, don't say...
Don't say, don't say...
Don't say, don't say, don't say...

Its so easy to relax if you try
(Relax if you try)
Please don't think about the time going by
You can tell me bout the things on your mind
(Things on your mind)
Just lie back

Its so easy to relax if you try
(relax if you try)
Please don't think about the time going by
You can tell me bout the things on your mind
(things on your mind)
Just lie back and unwind
