Nebakanezer Lyrics

Nebakanezer never knew
He left his needle outside in the rain
And it rusted through
He kept twenty-nine blackbirds
but only one flew
Spent most of his time making holes
And licking his wounds
Nebakanezer lost his wife
She took her diamond rings and was
gone before the light
She left one satin shoe and a
very dull knife
She left one satin shoe and a very dull knife

So tell us what the sorry singer might do
All of his friends complain
That they got the flu
They ain't sick in the head
They look like the living dead
And that's not cool

Gone Lyrics

Save me, save me baby
From this season's dead air
Take, take, take me baby
Blind naked and scared
So scared
Want you to burn me, burn me baby
Burn me and cover your eyes with my ashes
Why don't you pray for me baby
Sit back and watch my divine spark flash

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Pull, push and pull on me baby
With your fingernails full of fur
I want you to stab me
Do it, do it, 'cause you know it don't hurt

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Jinx me, jinx me baby
Beautiful like a fool
C'mon and remove me
Dilated and burned

Gone
Good riddance I'm gone
Gone in a wasted way
Wasted my way I'm gone

Share the Ride Lyrics

Hey there buddy
Slow down for me
I'm friendly and I'm clean
I will not rob you or cause you misery
Your wheels sound good to me
I ain't green with travel
As you can see
I only got one bag
If I am trouble drop me off
In Abilene
I'll pay my gasoline

chorus

Let me share the ride
Let me share the ride

It's hard living on travel time
Please let me share your ride

I never was a young man
Never felt old
This life is a mystery
My coffee's hot not cold
I'll turn your dashboard gold
Slow down take a look at me

I'm not not running from anything
I've no past to hide
I've got no secrets haunting me
I just easy ride

Mellow Down Easy Lyrics

You jump jump here
You jump jump there
You jump jump jump everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

You shake shake here
You shake shake there
You shake shake shake everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your topv
You wiggle wiggle here
You wiggle wiggle there
You wiggle wiggle wiggle everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
You mellow down easy when you really wanna blow your top

Hard To Handle Lyrics

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You gotta' come back for more

(Chorus)

Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now

Yes I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

(Chorus)

Boys come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now
Yes I am

(Repeat Verse 1)

Better When You're Not Alone Lyrics

I love you in the worst way
The only way I know
They say the clearer the water
The more that it shows
They say the deeper the river
The stronger the love
Your eyes don't lie to me
And your smile is worth its weight in gold
This life, this life aches
And this life moans
This life is great, this life is great
And it's better when you're
Not alone, not alone

You love me in the worst way
The only way you know
They say the higher the mountain
The more love that grows
They say the stronger the wind blows
The farther we'll go
I hope you don't lie to me
There's nothing better than your touch
How many times does this happen
Two people like us meet
As I try to be humble and lay
Down at your feet

Blackberry Lyrics

Hey Blackberry, How you taste so sweet
Hey Blackberry, tell me what you see
Tell me is it interesting
Hey Blackberry pay some attention to me

Hey Blueberry look at my bumblebee
Hey Blueberry you know he never stings
And he only hums for me

I need some L-O-V-E-N to make me happy
You got to be L-U-C-K-Y to git
With a girl like Blackberry

Hey my cherry, coming up my street
Hey my cherry, you make it hard to breathe
Look what you've done to me
Hey my cherry, be sure to keep your nose clean

Tied Up and Swallowed Lyrics

I forgot I found you tied up and swallowed
A mess with the magic and the knot
You touch my teeth and say you like the way I bite ya
Sin, skin, sounds wrong but it's not

Chorus:

Everybody says that you're such a pity
Well baby, they, they ought to know
Everybody says you're such a pity
Tell ya baby, they, they ought to know

Touched from up above and touched between your legs
But which one, baby, burns
So you've been touched so many times so many ways
Come on baby, who gets hurt

Chorus

Chorus

Miss Judy's Farm Lyrics

Miss Judy, she was moody
Owned a sweaty farm in old Alabam
I was just 18, crude and mean
All I needed was to get my own way
Get out of my way

Miss Judy, she could have me
Any hour of the working day
She'd send me in the cornfield mid afternoon
Said son it's all part of your job

Miss Judy, had a cross-eyed poodle
That I would kick if I was given the chance
Never was amused by the kindness I used
I was whipped in the barn until dawn
It hurt me

Last summer, we was restless
Were gonna make a stand and burn down your farm
But it was all in the head
'Cause out in the yard
Miss Judy had the National Guard
We was beaten, before we started

Miss Judy, she was moody
And she always didn't get her own way
Just state the facts, get it right
Kick her when she's down

Spider In The Sugar Bowl Blues Lyrics

Well I always knew you were a special girl
Immediately I recognized you
Seen you float off the floor when I spy on you
In our garden at night you let your magic down

A spider in the sugar bowl blues
A messenger that brings bad news
Has no knives, only spoons
A sweet tooth for a new coccoon

Well the time stands still when I kiss your mouth
You put dreams in my head I cannot talk about
When we lay in our bed of one million stars
And your magic comes down and holds me in its arms

A spider in the sugar bowl blues
A messenger that brings bad news
Has no forks, only spoons
A sweet tooth for a new coccoon

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

Seeing Things Lyrics

I find it hard to shed a tear
You brought it all on yourself my dear
Wrong, yes I may be
Don't leave a light on for me
'Cause I ain't comin' home
It hurts me baby to be alone
Yes, it hurts me baby

A hundred years will never ease
Hearing things I won't believe
I saw it with my own two eyes
All the pain that I can't hide

And this pain starts in my heart
And this love tears us apart
You won't find me bent down on my knees
Ain't bendin' over backwards baby
Not to please

'Cause I'm seeing things for the first time
I'm seeing things for the first time, oh yeah
I'm seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life

I used to dream
Of better days that never came
Sorry ain't nothin' to me
I'm gone and that's the way it must be
So please I've done my time
Lovin' you is such a crime
You won't find me down on, on my knees
Won't find me over backwards baby
Just to please

'Cause I'm seeing things for the first time
I"m seeing things for the first time
Seeing things for the first time
Oh I'm seeing things for the first time
Yeah, seeing things for the first time
I'm seeing things for the first time
Yeah, I'm seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life

The Weight Lyrics

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' 'bout half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
"Hey mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, "no" was all he said

Chorus:
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny, and... and... and...
You put the load, put the load right on me

I picked up my bags, I went lookin' for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side
I said "Hey Carmen, come on let's go downtown"
She said "No, I've got to go, but my friend can stick around"

Chorus

Go down Miss Moses, there's nothin' that you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the judgement day
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said "Do me a favor son, won't you stay and keep Anna Lee company"

Chorus

Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog
He said "I'll fix your rack if you'll take Jack my dog"
I said "Wait a minute Chester, you know I'm a peacful man"
He said "That's okay boy, won't you feed him when you can"

Chorus

Get your cannonball now to take me down the line
My bag is sinking low, and I do believe it's time
To get back at Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone

Chorus

Sting Me Lyrics

If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You have the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me what you're seeing
This submission is a tired tradition
It's everyone's sacrifice

Well believe you me
I've got nothing up my sleeve
Except a heart and a chip on my shoulder
Yes I'm young and don't like getting older

Yeah but can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Come on my sweet little thing
What new things can you show me today
I got one question
I believe it's subjective
What is a wasp without her sting?

I don't want to sound bitter
Yeah you touch me just like murder
Living ain't so easy
When all I want from you is to sting me

Can you sting me

Girl From A Pawnshop Lyrics

With pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
She sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, well should she leave town
To play the role of lover expatriate
A nod to the waiter, always her flirty behavior
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter
From a bag under her sweater
And before she reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number
I never lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
We'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter
One tear falls like a feather
And disappears on the bar room floor
The gratuity included
You know the letter concluded
P.S. with all my love

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

I said P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love

Nonfiction Lyrics

I don't know my telephone number
But you kiss good and I'd like to
See you tomorrow
And I don't beg, I pay, I don't barter
And if we had a child I'd like a son,
Not a daughter
'Cause she'd be just like you
You know that would not do

I'm no builder, I'm no gardener
I sing some songs, have a friend
Who's a photographer
There ain't no other language
I know how to speak
Some like their water shallow
And I like mine deep
Tied to the bottom
With a noose around my feet

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

I like to dress up like the jury
To eat like a king, to poke fun at clergy
To talk like dirt
To love you like tar
But never fall in too fast
With my north star
While you pull your hair out
I buy the drinks at the bar

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Remedy Lyrics

Baby, baby why can't you sit still?
Who killed that bird out on you window sill?
Are you the reason that he broke his back?
Did I see you laugh about that?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it glide?

Can I have some remedy?

Remedy for me please.
Cause if I had some remedy
I'd take enough to please me.

Baby, baby why did you dye your hair?
Why you always keeping with your mother's dare?
Baby why's who's who, who know you too?
Did the other children scold on you?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it slide
