World of Swirl

January 22, 2008

World of Swirl

I hit the street running, had an angle in mind
Looking for a shelter, doing double overtime
I get a little crazy, but I won’t be denied
Gotta find the time that takes the inside outside
Tumbling, in a world of swirl
Rumbling, in a world of swirl
In a world of swirl
Everything’s hazy, everything’s a blur
Isn’t it amazing? checking outta where we were
It’s so unpredictable, at the end of my rope
Gotta skate the ledge outta this kaleidoscope
Tumbling, in a world of swirl
Rumbling, in a world of swirl
In a world of swirl
In this cloud of dust, you’ve got to keep steady
Hang on you must, you better get ready
Over the ledge, ripping the curl
Riding the edge off into to twirl
Tumbling, in a world of swirl
Rumbling, in a world of swirl
In a world of swirl

Cover Your Rig

January 22, 2008

Cover Your Rig

If you been out messin’ and actin’ a fool
You best be confessin’ hey, don’t be cruel.
Just callin’ attention you probably know
Don’t hold on to nuthin’, it’s time to let go.
Lay baby I want ‘cha, I’m hurtin’ so big.
Take out some insurance, and cover your rig.
We talkin’ resurrection to shred your head.
That certain possession you keep in yo’ shed.
Don’t wanna confuse you, muddy up yo’ mind.
Let nothing abuse you or come from behind.
Say baby I want ‘cha, I’m hurtin’ so big.
Take out some insurance, and cover your rig.
If there’s ever a question, take care of yourself.
Use your protection, be respecting yo’self.
Make no obligations, you can throw ’em to the wind.
Blind infatuations, the means to an end.
Say baby I want ya, I’m hurtin’ so big
Take out some insurance, and cover your rig.

Thug

Thug

You look like who you say you are
So scoot over let me drive your car
Roll down the glass and give me some wind
lock all the doors I’m on the loose again alright!

I haven’t sat behind a wheel like this
since that job in 1956
Can’t wait till I can do it again
can’t keep my nose clean livin’ in sin alright!

I had a friend down in Alcatraz
he had the money and machine guns stashed
We busted out June 21
we gonna rob, steal totin’ our guns alright!

Ten Dollar Man

(Gibbons, Hill, Beard) 3:42
  
  Mister Ten Dollar Man with that gold in your hand,
  Comin’ ’round here after sunlight
  With your peaches and your Pream
  And your rollin’ magazine,
  Tellin’ me you’ll make me feel alright.
  Now, you’ll make me feel alright
  
  Mister Ten Dollar Man with a girl by the hand,
  Will this ten-spot take her away?
  With his slaver’s finance
  He winked; Said, “Take a chance.”
  Don’t you know, it happens ev’ry day.
  I said it happens ev’ry day.
  
  Mister Ten Dollar Man with that gun in your hand,
  Can I get a case of those tonight?
  And now you’ve got the order;
  I said it’s time to slip the border
  Don’t you know it happens every day
  I said it happens every day

  They’ll never know we’re gone ’til the break ‘o day
  Come on! Come on!
  
  I say Hey Snappy Kakkie
  Did they talk to you today?
  I say Hey Snappy Kakkie
  Did you see it their way?
  The moon she is high, we must leave tonite
  We must get away, we will join the fight
  Come on! Come on!
  
  I say Hey Snappy Kakkie!
  Did our brothers stay
  I say Hey Snappy Kakkie
  Will our sisters pay
  Does it really matter of the friends we lost
  It doesn’t really matter cause their souls were lost
  Come on! Come on!
  
  I say Hey! Snappy Kakkie!
  Do you wanna play?
  I say Hey! Snappy Kakkie!
  I say Hey! watcha’ say!
  The water she is nice we can steal away
  They’ll never know we’re gone til the break ‘o day
  So come on!

Eliminator :: I Got the Six

Eliminator :: I Got the Six

Living room, passing time, talking trash, sipping wine,
I need something more substantial.
New deck of playing cards, I don’t like to work this hard,
I think I’ll have to cancel.

I’m running out of time,
I’m about to lose my mind.
I got the six,
gimme your nine.

Slow hand on the clock, I’m sitting here like a rock,
I’m feeling so abnormal.
Pictures in the magazines, all my thoughts are so obscene.
Cover up that centerfold.

I’m running out of time,
I’m about to lose my mind.
I got the six,
gimme your nine.

Look at this, what a pair, she won’t let me touch her there,
she’s so discriminating.
This is weird, it’s time to blow, I just heard the rooster crow.
I guess I’ll have to spank my monkey.

I’m running out of time,
I’m about to lose my mind.
I got the six,
gimme your nine.

Girl in a T-Shirt

Girl in a T-Shirt

Some girls gotta get coco chanel
  Some get the luck of the draw
  I got a girl lookin’ naturally well
  Hippest chick you ever saw
  She like wearin’ powder and paint
  Wheelin’ in a big Seville
  She’s big cheese with the maitre D’s
  Down at the bar and grill
  Just a girl in a t-shirt
  Girl in a t-shirt
  Her reputation precedes her
  In every boutique around
  They get down on their knees to please her
  She’s throwin’ that money down
  Now don’t get it wrong, please understand
  She’s barely keepin’ up with the rent
  But the finer labels and her car phone
  Kepp her down to her very last cent
  Just a girl in a t-shirt
  Girl in a t-shirt
  Everybody digs her, everybody try
  Once you get past that femme fatale
  Everybody knows she’s fine
  I had to get it and quit it and keep a cool head
  It took me a pass or two
  But her code’s done cracked I want you to know
  She’s my baby through and through
  Just a girl in a t-shirt
  Girl in a t-shirt

La Grange

’bout that shack outside La Grange
and you know what I’m talkin’ about.
Just let me know if you wanna go
to that home out on the range.
They gotta lotta nice girls.

Have mercy.
A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
A haw, haw, haw.

Well, I hear it’s fine if you got the time
and the ten to get yourself in.
A hmm, hmm.
And I hear it’s tight most ev’ry night,
but now I might be mistaken.
hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.

Have mercy.

Deal goin down

Deal goin down

When the deal goin’ down and you gonna take your chance
There’s always just a mystery that locks you in a trance
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin’ softly when you know the deal is goin’ down
When the deal go down and the noose is bein’ tied
Aint no gettin’ round it, fade back and let it lie
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin softly when you know the deal is goin’ down
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin softly when you know
No matter what the future brings you’re booked, and lawd you’re bound
Be steppin softly when you know the deal is goin’ down
Goin’ down
Down, down
