1. FOUR WHEEL DRIVE

Why can't you do something right?
Your name is all over the town.
Your reputation is sweeping the nation.
The rumors are bringing me down.

You stand on the tip of my tongue,
I can't get you out of my head.
Theres no syncopation with any relation,
Could it be that there's trouble ahead?

Four wheel drive, four wheel ride, side by side, four Wheel drive.

Why dont you try to slow down?
I'm standing at the back of the line.
We made reservations to meet at the station,
My schedule is running behind.

What can I do to survive?
Why am I always abused?
Anticipation of constant frustration;
Can it be that there's any good news?

Four wheel drive, four wheel ride, side by side, four Wheel drive.


2. SHE'S A DEVIL

You're invited to join the procession
There is someone I'd like you to meet
She looks like she might be for hire
But you won't find her out in the street

Her hair is the color of mine
And she's spending the night beside me
Could this be my mind, am I dreaming
Or maybe I got you really
She's a devil, she's devine
She's an angel, I'm on fire

I found in my life there were others
But no one so equal it seems
And you stand at the edge of my heaven
But her fingertips pulsing to me

Her hair is the color of mine
And she's spending the night beside me
Could this be my mind, am I dreaming
Or maybe I got you really
She's a devil, she's devine
She's an angel, I'm on fire

She's a devil, she's devine
She's an angel, I'm on fire

You're invited to join the procession
There is someone I'd like you to meet
She looks like she might be for hire
But you won't find her out in the street

Her hair is the color of mine
And she's spending the night beside me
Could this be my mind, am I dreaming
Or maybe I got you really
She's a devil, she's devine
She's an angel, I'm on fire

She's a devil, she's devine
She's an angel, I'm on fire

She's a devil, she's devine
She's an angel, I'm on fire


3. HEY YOU

Hey you, you say you wanna change the world
It's alright, with me there's no regret
It's my turn, the circle game has brought me here
And I won't let down 'till every song is set

You realize now
You should have tried now, oooh
The music's gone now
You lost it somehow
Hey you, sha lalala
Hey you, sha lalala
Wooo, sha la la
Wooo, sha la la

Hey you, you say the race is much too fast
It's okay, with me I'm keeping pace
It's my game, the music is inside my head
For every one on top there's one who can't retrace

You realize now
You should have tried now, oooh ooh
The music's gone now, you'll find out
You lost it somehow
Hey you, sha lalala
Hey you, sha lalala
Wooo, sha la la la
Wooo, sha la la la

You realize now oooh
You could have died now, oooh
The music's gone now
You lost it somehow
Hey you, hey you, sha lalala
Hey you, sha lalala
Wooo, sha la la
Wooo, sha la la

Sha lalala, hey you, hey you, hey you
Sha lalala, ba-ba-ba-baby's stupid (?)
Sha lalala, no time, no time left, no time
Sha lalala, don't let me down, don't let me down


4. FLAT BROKE LOVE

Pardon my life, pardon my song
I hope you're not nervous, I'm not going to stay long
The one installment, I've made on your heart
Is not enough to cover what we're willin' to start
Cause I'm a flat broke love
Lord I'm a flat broke love

I'm up or I'm down, never constant or sound
Empty my pockets full of grain
The friends that I've loved, never feel I've been there
I've never left a grateful one
Cause I'm a flat broke love
Well I'm a flat broke love
Yeah I'm a flat broke love
Baby I'm a flat broke love

Cause I'm a flat broke love
Yeah I'm a flat broke love
Well I'm a flat broke love
Lord I'm a flat broke love

I'll state you this claim, you've all played the game
You've all upset somebody's cart
I think you forgot, love needs more than one heart
Without it, it can't hold a true flame

Cause it's a flat broke love
It's a flat broke love
Yeah it's a flat broke love
Hey it's a flat broke love
Well it's a flat broke love
Lord it's flat broke love
Flat broke love
Baby it's a flat broke love
It's a flat broke love
Flat broke love
Baby she's a flat broke love
Oh a flat broke love


5. SHE'S KEEPIN' TIME

Trouble comes in shapes and sizes
Some of them are friends
Trouble is what trouble does
It always has an end

I've got to keep myself together
Got to get it straight
I've got to find some better things
Before it gets too late

Then I found myself a woman
She's the one who keeps me on the line
When I go wrong
She's always there beside me
She's keeping time
She's keeping time

Failure comes before success
Tries to bring you down
Before you give up
please call your baby
She likes to hang around

You got to get yourself together
You got to get it straight
You got to find some peace of mind
Before it's way to late

Then I found myself a woman
She's the one who keeps me on the line
When I go wrong she's
always there beside me
She's keeping time
She's keeping time
She's keep keep keeping time

Then I found myself a woman
She's the one who keeps me on the line
When I go wrong she's
always there beside me
She's keeping time
She's keeping time
She's keeping time
She's keeping time
She's keeping time

Everywhere I go
Everything I do
She's keeping time
She's keep keep keeping time
Keep keep keeping time
She's been keeping
She's keeping time
Yeah yeah yeah


6. QUICK CHANGE ARTIST

First you say you want me
Flirt around and haunt me
Hold me til my blood starts to storm
Quickly things get chilly
You turn around and ask him, will he?
And the two of you just walk thru the door

You're a quick change artist
Always in the mood for a change
Baby you're a quick change artist
And everybody knows you by a different name

I didn't catch your first name
I didn't get your last
I didn't hear too much what was said
My friends don't want to hurt me
But they told me that you burnt me
By that time you were ten miles ahead

(Cause) You're a quick change artist
Never do two things just the same
Baby you're a quick change artist
And everybody knows you by a different name

You told me what your name is
I showed you where I live
Together we would start a new game
But when we reached the doorway
Decided you'd go your way
I knew I'd never see you again

Cause...You're a quick change artist
Always in the mood for a change
Baby you're a quick change artist
And everybody knows you by a different name

You're a quick change artist
Always in the mood for a change
Baby you're a quick change artist
And everybody knows you by a different name

(Cause) You're a quick change artist
Never do two things just the same
Baby you're a quick change artist
And everybody knows you by a different name

You're a quick change artist
Always in the mood for a change
Baby you're a quick change artist
Everybody knows they won't see you again

(Cause) You're a quick change artist
Never do two things just the same
Baby you're a quick change artist
And everybody knows you by a different name


7. LOWLAND FLING

Bring your pipes and bring your sword
I'll meet you in the lowland
Tune your banjo, don't be late
It's time we all were going

Fling your arms and clap your hands
Gather round and sing
Round and round til we fall down
Doing the lowland fling
I'll meet you in the lowland
Meet you in the lowland

Leave your troubles and I'll leave mine
I'll meet you in the lowland
We'll make music thru the night
Won't get home til morning

Fling your arms and clap your hands
Gather round and sing
Round and round til we fall down
Doing the lowland fling
I'll meet you in the lowland
Meet you in the lowland

Bring your pipes and bring your sword
I'll meet you in the lowland
Tune your banjo, don't be late
It's time we all were going
Fling your arms, clap your hands, gather round and sing
Round and round til we fall down, doing the lowland fling
Wave your arms and clap your hands, gather round and sing
Round and round til we fall down, doing the lowland fling
I'll meet you in the lowland
Meet you in the lowland


8. DON'T LET THE BLUES GET YOU DOWN

Well it's the same rhythm that's played in Memphis
The face shows no pain but the beat is the same in New York
And speed is just a bird in the night
Carries sorrow as it flies no fixed flight
It's heard out there

You say your name is the same
But you're just not able to live white
You can't believe what is real
Because what's real for you, may not be right
And the alleys and streets stay the same
And you think you know what's to blame
It just ain't right

Don't let the blues get you down
Don't let the blues drag you around
The blues are gonna get ya
The blues are gonna get ya now
I said the blues are gonna get ya
The blues are gonna get you now

Well it's the same rhythm that's played in Memphis
The face is the same but the beat isn't played in New York
The people spin a web they can't see
And imagine what a world this could be
If they did things right

Don't let the blues get you down
Don't let the blues drag you around
The blues are gonna get ya
The blues are gonna get ya now
I said the blues are gonna get ya
The blues are gonna get you now

Don't let the blues get you down
Don't let the blues drag you around
Don't let the blues get you down
The blues are gonna get ya
The blues are gonna get you now
I said the blues are gonna get you
The blues are gonna get you now
I said the blues are gonna get you
The blues are gonna get you now
Yeow
