You always wanted more than I could give you,
You always wanted more than I had,
You painted a bad picture and it don't look good,
You've been flying too high, you get shot from t ...
We used to ride, baby
Ride around in limousines
We looked so fine, baby
You in white and me in green
Drinking and dancing
All inside a crazy dream
Cell block five, how I hate Bromide
With your coffee in the morning makes you so sterile
The corner gang never made a man of me boy
You know the walls are tall and the in ...
I been known to say the wrong things in my time,
Stumble when I was in my prime
We cannot have it our way all the time,
And you cannot have it your way all the time
Oh Cindy ain't you noticed that several of your friends have moved on
And the street outside is just a little too quiet
And your local papers run out of news
I'm not persuading ...
Hey - what am I doing standing here on the corner of West 8th Street
and the 6th Avenue
Ah, skip it.
Keith! Watcha, watcha doing? (whistle)
Living high, sitting in the sun,
sit on your ass till your work is done.
You lazy mother, your hands are clean.
You pull the strings and you got the clout.
There's somethin ...
Sitting on my back door wondering which way to go
The sun's shining on my back and it hurts (child)
The FM station plays another bad 45
And it's been so long since I had a good ...
Spent some time feelin' inferior
standing in front of my mirror
Combed my hair in a thousand ways
but I came out looking just the same
Daddy said, "Son, you better ...
Gonna pulp you to a mass of bruises,
'cause that's what you're lookin' for.
There's a hole where your nose used to be.
Gonna kick ya out of my door.
I'm flying across the ocean
and I'm soaring back home
to the place I was born and probably raised.
And I'm flying across the mountains and valleys,
back home to the one tha ...
I think I know now what's making me sad
It's a yearnin' for my own back yard
I realize maybe I was wrong to leave
Better swallow up my silly country pride
Going home, r ...
And I love you dirty fucker.
Sister and brother,
moanin' in the moonlight.
Singin' for your supper.
'Cause I had it, I had it, I had it, I had it with you.
And I had ...
Thought I was lookin' good
So I cycled 'cross the neighborhood
Was invited by a skinny girl
Into her high class world
Left my bicycle under the stairs
I say hey negrita
Move your body
Move your mouth
Way down south [??]
In your home town [??]
Come s ...
Nobody came to save me
Who came to save you,
Something is weighing heavy on my mine,
And it's all about you, you. . .
I fear for your future, I fear for your life.< ...
A fairytale, a storybook romance
Our eyes met and we began to dance
I saw a beach, I could hear the shore,
When all the time I'm in a Woolworth store.
Jo, Josephine ...
It's all over now, you look real neat,
What I want to know is, how you going to eat. . .
I'm going to knock your teeth out,
I'm going to knock your teeth out,
I'm g ...
I’m appealing to your instinct—Let’s try again
I know that you don’t want me—You make it plain to see
For me to be the lover—you to be the loved
Promise me once—promise me ag ...
Darling I hate to tell you but I think I’m catching a cold
Put another chair on the fire bring the bottle over here
I feel I’m getting old
I like your laugh and a hot romance
It's hard to believe that this is the place
Where we were so happy all our lives
Now so empty inside and feeling no pain
Waiting for a hammer and a big ball and chain
Take me like you find me
Don't try to change me
You know better than that
Take me as you see me
Don't try to hide me
I ain't used to that
Shout it out l ...
Stay a while and work it out of me
We got time and we can talk too
Just give me a sign I'll take your word
I'll learn anything you want me to
That is all I'm looking to you ...
Ain't no use in crying
Stay away from me
Standing in the kitchen
Looking way out cross the fields
You see a face in the window
It not real, it not real ...
I'm waiting here in patience and I'm waiting all in vain
Will I see you, will I touch you, will I hear you call my name ?
Comin' comin' comin' make
Ten steps to every one step tha ...
I don't care who is watching
Don't mind what the surfing heads might say
And though I may not be no Charlie Atlas
Gonna take my shirt off anyway
Now skin and bones ...
You fell out of the clear blue sky
to the darkness below.
The smell of your flesh excites me,
blood starts to flow, so help me God.
You burst in, in a blase of light, ...
Poor old Granddad I laughed at all his words
I thought he was a bitter man
He spoke of women's ways
They'll trap you, then they use you before you even know
For love is ...
I've woken up on mornings such as this
And thought exactly the same as I'm thinking now
Every night for a year I've slept alone
My cold damp room looks worse than me.
Pretty beat up
pretty beat up
since you put me down
yea, since you left me lying round
since you eighty-sixed me
never re-stitched me
my face is a mes ...
You ain't gonna get me honey no way
Tearing down the highway in the pouring rain
Escaping from my wedding day
I heard the bells ringing in the local church
the ceremony' ...
Well I shake and I shudder and I shiver
in my bath while it's cold and my windows are broken,
as my poor dog lays a-chokin' on the floor.
Well I cried to my father and my ...
Wait a minute honey I don’t think the joke's so too funny,
No I stayed up all night
Checking out the doctor's guide
Wait a minute honey stop pretending you're a bunny
Caution baby, handle me with care
If you don't want me, somebody else might
Know how to do the right thing, by me
You're hard headed, so stubborn . . .you've gotta change.
I used to work and take a salary
In a hole up near a foundry
But it did not take me too long
To get my boots on a "So Long!"
Long Spanish boots on a "So Long!"
In the morning
Don't say you love me
Cause I'll only kick you out of the door
I know your name is Rita
'Cause your perfume smell is sweeter
Since when I saw yo ...
Sweet Lady Mary has to rest her poor head
Wakes in the morning with her breakfast in bed
I tried to help her, but I did not know how
I tried to love her, but it's all over now
Now that I'm without you, with myself, I don't know what to do
I'm thinking thinking about what we had
Dreaming about a time that's past, when we thought
Our thing would last. I'm ...
Never been a millionaire
and I tell you mama I don’t care
Never gonna own a race-horse
or a fast back mid-engine Porsche
Don’t think I’ll own a private jet
on the St ...
My life was once filled with anger
So much anger and grief
Now I found a spirit
Heading into my heart
It' s the only thing that gives me relief
Jealousy 'n ...
