01. Youre Pretty Good Looking

Oh yeah youre pretty good looking for a girl
but your back is so broken
and this feelings still gonna linger on
until the year 2525 now
yeah youre pretty good looking for a girl
your eyes are wide open
and your thoughts have been stolen by the boys
who took you out and bought you everything you
want now
yeah youre pretty good looking
oh yeah
youre pretty good looking
yes youre pretty good looking
oh yeah
for a girl
lots of people in this world
but I want to be your boy
to me that thought is sounding so absurd
and I dont wanna be your toy
cause youre pretty good looking for a girl
my futures wide open
but this feelings still gonna linger on
until I know everything I need to know now
yeah youre pretty good looking
oh yeah
youre pretty good looking
yes youre pretty good looking
oh yeah
for a girl

02. Hello Operator

Hello operator
can you give me number nine?
can i see you later?
will you give me back my dime?
turn the oscillator
twist it with a dollar bill
mail man bring the paper
leave it on my window sill
Find a canary
a bird to bring my message home
carry my obituary
my coffin doesnt have a phone
how you gonna get the money?
send papers to an empty home?
how you gonna get the money?
nobody to answer the phone

Little Bird

I got a little bird

and disconnect the phone
If you give me a look

i wanna preach to birds
as i walk the floor
yeah this i know
When i get you home
this is how it goes
i got nothing to lose
ill never let you go

--------------------------------------------

Apple Blossom

Hey little apple blossom
what seems to be the problem
all the ones you tell your troubles to
they dont really care for you

Come and tell me what youre thinking
cause just when the boat is sinking
a little light is blinking
and i will come and rescue you

Lots of girls walk around in tears
but thats not for you
youve been looking all around for years
for someone to tell your troubles to

Come and sit with me and talk awhile
let me see your pretty little smile
put your troubles in a little pile
and i will sort them out for you
ill fall in love with you
i think ill marry you

--------------------------------------------

Im Bound Pack It Up

Ive thought about it for a while
and Ive thought about the many miles
but I think its time that Ive gone away
the feelings that you have for me
have gone away its plain to see
and it looks to me that your pulling away
Im gonna pick it up
Im gonna pick it up today
Im bound pack it up
Im bound pack it up and go away
Ive found it hard to say to you
that this is what I have to do
but there is no way that Im gonna stay
there are so many things you need to know
and I wanna tell you before I go
but its hard to think of just what to say
Im gonna pick it up
Im gonna pick it up today
Im bound pack it up
Im bound pack it up and go away
Im sorry to leave you all alone
youre sitting silent by the phone
but wed always known there would come a day
the bus is warm and softly lit
and a hundred people ride in it
I guess Im just another running away
Im gonna pick it up
Im gonna pick it up today
Im bound pack it up
Im bound pack it up and go away

Death Letter

I got a letter this morning, what do you reckon it read?
It said the girl you love is dead
I got a letter this morning what do you reckon it read?
Said, Hurry hurry, because the gal you love is dead
Well I packed up my suitcase, took off down the road
When I got there she was, laying on the cooling board
Packed up my suitcase and I took off down the road
When I got there she was laying on the cooling board
It looked like ten thousand people standing around the burying ground
I didnt know I loved her, til they began to let her down
looked like ten thousand, people standing around the burying ground
I didnt know I loved her, til they began to let her down
You know its so hard to love someone that dont love you
Dont look like satisfaction, dont care what you do
so hard to love someone that dont love you
Dont look like satisfaction, and I dont care what you do
Well I got up this morning the break of day
just hugging the pillow, she used to lay
got up this morning would you believe the break of day
just hugging the pillow, where my baby used to lay

Sister, Do You Know My Name?

Well were back in school again
and I dont really know anyone
I really want to be your friend
cause I dont really know anyone
And the bus is pulling
up to your house
I wish you could be sitting here
next to me
i didnt see you at summer school
but I saw you at the corner store
and I dont want to break the rules
cause Ive broken them all before
But every time I see you
I wonder why
I dont break a couple rules
so that youll notice me
Sister do you know my name?
Ive heard it before but i want to know
I got a funny feeling
that its gonna work out
cause now I see you sitting here
next to me

Truth Doesnt Make A Noise

My babys got a heart of stone
cant you people just leave her alone
she never did nothing to hurt you
so just leave her alone
The motion of her tiny hands
and the quiver of her bones below
are the signs of a girl alone
and tell you everything
you need to know
I cant explain it
I feel it often
everytime I see her face
but the way you treat her
fills me with rage and I
want to tear apart the place
You try to tell her what to do
and all she does is stare at you
her stare is louder than your voice
because truth doesnt make a noise

A Boys Best Friend

I just dont fit in this place
Their thoughts cast me out of here
Their home has run out of space
My minds already out of here
Wont you come along, dear?
Wont you come along?
Words that are spoke alone
Phrases you will never hear
Empty rooms and a telephone
That I will never use
Never fear
I am all alone, dear
I am all alone
My dogs come sit next to me
A pack of dogs and cigarettes
My only friends speak no words to me
But they look at me and they dont forget
That a boys best friend
Is his mother or whatever has become his pet

Jumble, Jumble

Jumble jumble
all at my house
come on over
sleep on the couch
cant even see ya
look like a mouse
Crumble crumble
the bag is brown
rip up the paper
to hear a sound
pick up the pieces
up off the ground
Tumble tumble
on to the floor
roll over
until your poor
wave to me
Im at the door


--------------------------------------------

Why Cant You Be Nicer To Me?

Somebodys screaming
looking at the ceilling
everythings so funny
I dont have the money
people dont even know me
but they know how to show me
Why cant you be nicer to me?
My pride is dying
I think Im all done lying
nobodys sharing
so I stop caring
all alone and walking
nobodys talking
Why cant you be nicer to me?
Well the wind is blowing
where am I going
off a bridge and falling
nobodys calling
on the ground and laying
nobodys praying
Why cant you be nicer to me?

Your Southern Can is Mine

Lookie here momma let me explain ya this
If ya wanna get crooked ill even give ya my fist
Ya might read from revelation back to genesis
Ya keep forgetten your southern can belongs to me
So there aint no use in bringin no jive to me
Your southern can is mine in the mornin
Your southern can belongs to me
Ya might go uptown have me arrested, put in jail
Some hotshots got money gonna pull my bail
Soon as i get out, hit the ground
Your southern can is worth a thousand, half a pound
So there aint no use in bringin no jive to me
Your southern can is mine, talkin about it
Your southern can belongs to me
Ya might take it from the south, baby, hide it up north
Understand ya cant rule me and be my boss
Take it from the east and hide in the west
But when i get ya momma your canll see no rest
So there aint no use in bringin no jive to me
Your southern can is mine, im screamin
Your southern can belongs to me
Now baby, ashes to ashes, sand to sand
When i hit ya momma then ya feel my hand
Give ya punch through that barbed wire fence
When i hit ya baby, ya know i make no sence
So there aint no use in bringin no jive to me
Your southern can is mine, i know it
Your southern can belongs to me
Now look here woman, dont get hot
Im gettin me a brick outta my backyard
So there aint no use in bringin no jive to me
Your southern can is mine, im takin about it
Your southern can belongs to me
Well if i catch you momma down in the heart of town
Im gonna grab me a brick and tear your can on down
So there aint no use in bringin no jive to me
Your southern can is mine, i know it
Your southern can belongs to me
You maybe get bed sick, cause youre graveyard bound
Im gonna make you moan like a graveyard hound
So there aint no use in bringin no jive to me
Your southern can is mine, im screamin
Your southern can belongs to me
