SIDE ONE




1. INTRO / PLUS MINUS ABSURDIO

(Instrumental)




2. LOVE IS A RODEO

There's no doubt you're beautiful
You're so full, you gotta be wonderful
So elastic, it's fantastic
Pure lovely, not at all like me
You roped me right into your ring
With your lassoo, with your string

Rodeo, Rodeo,
Once you think you're riding high, off you go
Idol, ideal partner in dreams
Much too perfect to be true
Here's another one for you

You say climbing in love is better than falling
Going ahead is better than stalling
Amplify me, satisfy me
You unfold me, but you never told me
How far you've gone to strike upon such technique
You're a bit of a rat, but you're still unique

Romeo, Romeo,
Once you think you're riding high, off you go
Idol, ideal partner in dreams
Much too perfect to be true
Here's another one for you
You say climbing in love is better than falling
Going ahead is better than stalling
Amplify me, satisfy me
You unfold me, but you never told me
How far you've gone to strike upon such technique
You're a bit of a rat, but you're still unique

Rodeo, Rodeo




3. THE SWITCH

So when all things come to an end
Deadly switches all close at hand
Make your dreams and duties mingle
Laws and morals are finally bend
Holy switch, will you defend

Switching all the time
Switching ain't no crime
Gotta change the climate
Gotta raise my rate
You see a boy in motion
Is never much too late

Switching's easy
Oh it's essential and you know
When you flick it
You can start a new episode

Warm love can costume hatred
And the truth could be a lie
Yes a man can switch to a lady
Of indiscrete last goodbyes
And a blade can switch behind you
When you expect shells from the sky
Oh you go when it's your time

Switching down the line
Switching ain't no crime
Gotta change the climate
Gotta raise my rate
You see a boy in motion
Is never much too late

Switching's easy
Oh it's essential and you know
When you flick it
You can start a new episode

Switching's easy
Oh it's essential and you know
When you flick it
You can start a new episode

Switching's easy
Oh it's essential and you know
When you flick it




4. KILL ME (CE SOIR)

Remember that song called "Kill me"
From Vick Timm's last LP
Too much of a risk
For a golden disc
The price he paid for money

Ce soir, Ce soir
Assassination d'un rock 'n roll star
Sing your song,
You can't go wrong
Attempted his business adviser
No need for alarm
You'll come to no harm
He didn't mention the sniper

Ce soir, Ce soir
Assassination d'un rock 'n roll star

The news is read, the meaning spread
One yawn, two yawn, and back to bed
Turn off the light and hold me tight
Come on maman, bend down your head
And just sing on, immortal song
Fini belle vie, bonne nuit

Remember that song called "Kill Me"
A lecture on political chicanery
Of people's rape
Recorded on tape
Bought shame to the presidency

Tonight, tonight
One more point for human right
Remember that song "Kill Me"
Once used by a man from Galilee
He had nothin' to lose
He was king of the Jews
Secured his place in history

Ce soir, Ce soir
Assassination d'un provocateur
The news is read, the voice is spread
One yawn, two yawn, and back to bed
Turn off the light and hold me tight
Come on maman, bend down your head
And just sing on, immortal song
Fini belle vie
Vick played the part,
With all his heart
He wasn't prepared for the shock
When howling lead
Bit into his head
A new martyr for the book of rock

Ce soir, Ce soir
Assassination d'un rock 'n roll star




SIDE TWO




1. TONS OF TIME

There's no lock on my door
Don't know what bolts are for
I never pay no rent
All I got was heaven sent

Don't need no clocks (tick tock)
To get off my rocks
O, I've got tons of time
Living on coca and lime

You want me to be like you
The truth is, you have no clue
That this life's master plan
Should be enjoyed by man

When I'm on T.V.
You all think I'm a bit funny
Basical and out of time
But it's luxury
Protected from humanity
Don't cost a dime, precious time
There's no jungle blues
Once you kick off them tennis-shoes
Making up your mind in time

One day I will revive
So we can all survive
It's just a matter of time
Oh it's luxury
Protected from humanity
Don't cost a dime, precious time
There's no jungle blues
Once you kick off them tennis-shoes
Making up your mind in time

The priest says I'm out of line
I'm wasting my tons of time
He say I should pray some more
But I don't know what the hell for




2. DADDY'S GONNA SAVE MY SOUL

I was born the son of a tycoon
Successor to a vast fortune
Being spoilt without concern
For the future tricks I'd turn
I found the wrong direction
Due to daddies overprotection

With people in a state of trance
There's no use for common sense
What you do is use the coin
Justify what you're destroyin'
Following the family code
I misbehave, lose control
Cause daddy's gonna save my soul
I misbehave, lose control
Cause daddy's gonna save my soul

What to think of a man of means
That wheels and deals behind the scenes
I radiate potential danger
Accepted as a well known stranger
At all the jet-set parties
I'm tampering with the ladies

With people in a state of trance
There's no use for common sense
What you do is use the coin
Justify what you're destroyin'
Following the family code
I misbehave, lose control
Cause daddy's gonna save my soul
I misbehave, lose control
Cause daddy's gonna save my soul
