1. POKE CHOP SANDWICH

Better watch that
Poke chop sandwich waitin' in the sack
Ridin' a tom tom, a double fat back
Got my poke chop sandwich?
Layin' on da drum

Poke chop greazy i'm gonna get some
Get some a dat poke chop
Poke chop sandwich
Poke chop

Poke chop sandwich
Yeah yeah twenty five
Louisiana back beat and the texas bop
Do a hollywood shuffle jese can't top it
New york turn around and
The london stomp

African good luck combination
I know that ya want
Poke chop
Poke chop sandwich
Poke chop

Double poke chop sandwich
Play on
Spider and lightnin' hopkins got
The big bad beat
Ain't no question what they gonna eat
Spider wanna a bottle

Lightning wanna a can
They'll take in a bucket
Cause they dam well can
A poke chop
A poke at dat chop
Cut dat poke chope

Poke chop sandwich
Feel like, i feel like a poke chop sandwich
Give me dat sandwich in wax paper
Pork chop sandwich

3. FEARLESS BOOGIE

Call me a pretty boy
They call me a saint
They call me a sinner
It's gonna be the same

Now i'm not afraid
And i'm not afear
I ain't gonna lose it
And i'm not scare

To do the fearless boogie
To do the fearless boogie
Smokin' fearless boogie
Until it's gone
They call me a pontiac

The red in my neck
They call me a cadillac
They call me a wreck

Now i'm not afraid
And i'm not scare
Now i ain't gonna lose it
No, i'm not afear

And do the fearless boogie
To do the fearless boogie
Smoking fearless boogie
Until it's gone
(Third verse not given)

They call me a lover
They call me a fool
They call me a winner
They call me a mule

Do the fearless boogie
Do the fearless boogie
Smoking fearless boogie
Until it's gone, gone, gone
(Ad lib)




4. 36-22-36

What, what, what chu you want?
My thing is a real fine thing

It's a thing it's a real fine thing
It ain't broke, it don't need a fix
36-22-36
I got a gyroscope goin' round and round

Got a thunderbird take me all over town
Got a transistor radio standin' on the mix
36-22-36
36-18-36

Where'd she go?
What chu say? 36-22-36
What chu say? 36-22-36
You want what? 36-22-36

What chu say? 36-22-36
What chu want?




5. MADE INTO A MOVIE

Who would believe
After such a long time
I found her again

And that's not just another line
A last minute scene then another
If you hit your mark
I gotta tell ya brother

It should be made into a movie
But who would believe it
Should be made into a movie

Oh you just have to see it
I gotta' confess
I lost a measure of faith
But she held the power

Followed me place to place
First a rival, then a lover
If you can shoot it
I gotta tell ya brother

It should be made into a movie
But who would believe it

Should be made into a movie
Oh you just got to see it

It should be made into a movie
Who in their right mind

Would spend hard earned money to see it
It should be made into a movie
What a scene, what a scene
It should be made into a movie

Who would believe
It should be made into a movie
I guess you just have to see it.




6. BEATBOX

A nine volt battery from japan
It's got the beat
A little tape deck in my hand

It's so so sweet
Keeps me rockin' round the clock
I don't mind it
I got the beatbox, the beatbox,

Just a beatin' that box
Beatbox, beatbox
One c-90's back to back

Jumping on that jack
Don't play with fire or
Unplug my wire, beg or steal

It's not for hire

Keeps me rockin' round the clock
I don't mind it because
I got the beatbox, the beatbox

Just a beating that box
Beatbox, beatbox

Paris, rome, toyko, osaka, forenza, milano, vesuvio
Dallas, texas (have mercy)




7. TRIPPIN'

I got a favorite place
In a favorite town
In a favorite foreign country

I been hangin' around
It ain't too big

And it ain't to far
And we could go

Crazy with our head in a jar
And go trippin'
Trippin', away

You got a secret slot
In a secret spot
We could secretly freak
If you gimme a shot

And secretly meet tomorrow
If i tell what time
Tell me what cho name
And what's cho sign

Let's go trippin'
Trippin' away
You can take your half

You can take mine
Its totally shine or totally blind
But one or the other's gonna' work out fine
We go trippin'
Tripping away

We go trippin'
We go trippin'




8. DREADMONBOOGALOO

Drop that thing
Dread, dread, dread
Boogaloo, boogaloo
East of the rockies

West of the rockies
On the wildcard line
Dread

Dread
East of the rockies
Dread,
West of the rockies

Dread
On the wildcard line
Boogaloo, boogaloo, boogaloo

10. SINPUSHER (LIVE VERSION)

I dropped out of society
Fell by the wayside so to speak
Quit my job i'm a lazy slob

Never lift a finger 'cept for my heart throb
I'm a sinpusher, hangin' on the on the dl down low

Just a sinpusher, kinda like heaven or hell
I want a bit of everything
I'm wanted by the law

I just want a little bit
I guess i want it all
I'm a sinpusher, hangin' on the on the dl down low
I'm just a sinpusher, kinda like heaven or hell

I like my big fat back
I like my ya ya thin
I like to push it down

Into the land of sin
I'm a sinpusher, hangin' on the on the dl down low
I'm a sinpusher, kinda like heaven or hell




11. (LET ME BE YOUR) TEDDY BEAR (LIVE VERSION)

California
Baby let me be
Your lovin' teddy bear

Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear
Baby let me be

Around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear

I don't want to be a tiger
Cause tigers play to rough
I don't want to be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind
You love enough

I don't want to be a tiger
Cause tigers play to rough
I don't want to be a rhino
Cause rhino's horn to gruff

I don't want to be a cheetah
Cause cheetahs scratch your stuff
I don't want be a lion
Cause lion's ain't the kind
You love enough

Oh now baby let me be
Around your cage tonight
Wrap your lock around my key
And turn it round just right
Oh let me be

Your teddy bear
Oh let me be
Hay hi ho teddy bear
Oh teddy bear




12. HEY MR. MILLIONAIRE (LIVE VERSION)

I went down across that borderline
Down in the planet mexico
Bought some tequila
Big sack o' whack

I let go of th' peso i couldn't get back
Hey mr. millionaire, hey mr. million
Can you loan this po' boy a dime?
I walked down across the borderline
Way over planet london

Bought a rolls royce an' a jaguar
It's doesn't not matter how rich you are
Hey mr. millioniare, hey mr. million
Can you loan this po' boy a dime?
I moved on across that borderline
Deep off th' planet louisiana

Threw some dice
It was oh so nice
But it left me eatin' red beans and rice
Hey mr. millionaire, hey mr. million
Could you loan this po' boy a dime?
Hey mr. millionaire, hey mr. million

Loan this po' boy a dime
Loan this po' boy a dime
Turn yourself into a banker




13. BELT BUCKLE (LIVE VERSION)

Red, red lips
Swiveling hips
Movin' in some new blue jeans

Shufflin' sweet right with that beat
She can really shake that thing
Belt buckle

Shinin' day and night
When she shake that thing
Hope it's next to mine

I said, lord have mercy, my o? my
You been lookin' too good
I think you wanna shake with me

Baby i think you should
Belt buckle
Shinin' day and night

When you shake that thing
Hope it's next to mine
Please, please baby, i wanna say

And if you hold mine next to yours
I'll hold you next to mine
Belt buckle
Shining day and night
When you shake that thing
Hope it's next to mine
