For One Day 03:32
FOR ONE DAY Someday I'm going to rule this rooster ask that guy with the feminine posture is he a feline or an impostor with a penchant for to harbor ~~ fugitive scapegoats ancient love notes warm down winter coats even though he lives on the coast desert all year long in the middle of summer with 3 different drummers you might think that's bummer be he's on his own today So you better make way. ~~~~~ How to describe this I got arthritis a wife 3 kids what'd I do to deserve this all of these loved ones maybe you only got none ~~ but the guy in the red and white shirt asked you for some all you could give him was kick inthe shins a bloody face cuz he jumped off the roof but all I can say in his defense is that he made it through the day and that's more than I can say for you. He said I told him the truth. ~~~~~ Middle of the street face down on the concrete mission imcomplete facin the facts facin defeat get up swingin back on my feet you might think that it's cool ~~ she says it's neat ain't that sweet askin your highness what about the shyness of boredom and orders gotta take a step back all I get for today is the cold shoulder. That's all I get for today. ~~~~~ There's gold in them thar hills safety orange pills workin in the steel mills 22 dollar bills from Beverly Hills really quite a deal don't have to steal it'll hold you over the grill try not to spill, cuz I just got the carpet cleaned yesterday. ~~ Straight oughtta Baghdad he was a sad cat tryin to make it with the listening public that didn't cut it his mouth was the subject and he wouldn't shut it even though I expressly asked him to do it For One Day Just for one day

Offshore Bank Accounts You are my sweet little girl Not my offshore bank accounts I'm gonna walk on my ears just like a bloodhound I'm gonna pinch my elbows to see if I'm dreamin' It's like a lagoon in here. Sleep around Take office jobs for money. You don't have to explain yourself away. Exploding tigers leap outside the sandbox. The what you do, the what you think you should say. It's not my fault that I love you Makin' love to someone else It's so foreign and necessary. I got to get myself-- I got to get myself right. For the better part of the next year I'll be sleeping in a shoebox on the side of the freeway with no submarine or laundry machine Don't believe what they say when the strangers get to talkin' they gonna do what they gonna do. They gonna try to judge you and make a fool out of you. It's not my fault that I hate you Shakin' hands with someone else. Don't want to be a bum You better chew gum. I got to get myself-- I got to get myself right. I may appear to be your outgoing indian snake charmer but I assure you that I have never done yoga. I may appear to be your knight in vintage cowboy armour But when it comes to spelling the word "Ex" I'm no good. It's not my fault that I love you Makin' love to someone else It's so foreign and necessary. I got to get myself-- I got to get myself right. Remember that night in Tijuana with your brother in the next room I didn't think you would protest I was trying not to notice I got to get I got to get I got to get I got to gotta gotta get myself right.

Goodbye Baby Goodbye Goodbye baby Goodbye It's over between you and I I remember everything, it's more than just a little fling You said something interesting, but I wasn't really listening That made me come to an understanding, that you are too good for me And lovin' you is unhealthy, and you're out of my league Goodbye baby Goodbye It's over between you and I I see you everyday, but it's not the same anyway Kissin' in the file cabinet, turnin' off the leaky faucet Puttin' out the candle flame, give you back your diamond ring That you left on the window pane, that I gave you when times were great Goodbye baby Goodbye It's over between you and I I'll see you tomorrow at your place of work Maybe Saturday, but that's not what I'm supposed to say, I'm supposed to say, I'm supposed to say Goodbye baby Goodbye It's over between you and I Somewhere between Ya Kid K and Jefferson Aeroplane There's a pendaflex that's empty with a metal haircut brain Hidden in a drawer of treasure below Keith Sweat and Queen Latifer I found me one that's a keeper and left a message on her beeper Sayin' that I'm gonna leave her, believin' not a word of it Soundin' over-eager Goodbye baby Goodbye It's over between you and I Orchestral Manouevres in the Dark And why can't it be just like it was from the very start?

Something About Her She don't cook She don't sew She don't laugh at my jokes She ain't smart She ain't kind She ain't pretty She ain't sweet She got nothin' to offer She make me depressed Every time I see her I love her less She's mean She's broke She's too young And she smokes ~~~ But there's something about herrrrrrr Somethin' about herrrrr ~~~ She's uptight She's a mess She don't know how to dress She gets on my nerves She's a bitch She's mean to my friends I just wanna fuck her And say later I love her But I hate her ~~~ But there's something about herrrrrrr Somethin' about herrrrr Somethin' about herrrrr ~~~ Somethin' Somethin' about her Just can't explain the power Is it something inside of me? Is there something wrong with me?

Wichita/Dark Love (free) 03:41
Wichita/Dark Love I'm gonna buy some alcohol Find me some girl, give it to the prettiest I'm gonna drive to Wichita and get you what like Gotta get my hands on everyone Girl I need your touch Close your eyes find me Close your eyes and such and such ~~~ Who's gonna go for broke I got 62 cents to my name Who gonna breathe the smoke in chains ~~~ I'm gonna buy some alcohol And die your lady blonde I'm gonna get you what you want what you like I'm gonna drive to Wichita Girl I need your touch Close your eyes find me Close your eyes and such and such ~~~ Who's gonna ask you what you like I ain't gonna ask you nice I need a little bit more of you in my life In my life... ~~~ Solo ~~~ Who's gonna go for broke I got 62 cents to my name Who gonna breathe the smoke in chains ~~~ Solo into outro...

Merry-Go-Round Don't know where I'd be without home, What I'd be without that washed up town Maybe I'd be safer than sound Maybe stuck up on the merry-go-round Don't know where I'd be without home What I'd do in the middle of a drought Maybe I'd be drowned, You can look up in the lost and found Your good fortunes run out If you're lucky I'll swing around Round the marry-go-round Da da da da da da da Don't know where I'd be without Joan What I'd be without that young girl's help Maybe I'd be stoned, Maybe sleepin' in a halfway house Don't know where I'd be without Joan That little lady done helped me out You gotta pick up the phone That little gadget goes both ways pal Your good fortunes run slim That young woman might take you in When you should have been out Your good fortunes they run out In the middle of a drought If you're lucky I'll swing around Round the merry-go-round Da da da da da da da

Paul Chesne Venezia

Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else. ... more
