1. A LITTLE AIN'T ENOUGH

Empty pockets never stopped
Me from singing a blue streak, no
And I don't think the devil's
Ever gonna give me back
I don't think so!
'Cause stayin' 'round here takes patience
It's like a full time occupation
I've become a diplomaniac
Yes I did, baby
Hey mean old gal
You know the cross-town bus just rolled
Yeah I'm the same old number
But we still got time to go
Oh I say mama living ain't a luxury
Oh I say mama and a lil' ain't enough for me
No it ain't, no it ain't baby!
Yeah I'm believing that you needin' yo relaxation
But honey tell me can you tell that story twice?
I don't think so mama!
'Cause there's a function at the junction,
I think ya better get it all ready girl
See I was born without a silver spoon But I'm gonna make a Stir
Yes I am!
Was vaccinated with a phonograph needle
One summer break; and then I kissed her
On her daddy's boat and shot accross the lake
And was singin' it
Oh I say mama living ain't a luxury
Oh I say mama and a lil' ain't enough for me
No it ain't baby, no it ain't!
Mmmm, said a little ain't enough, baby!
Baby, PLEASE!! Little ain't enough, aw yeah, Wow!
Was vaccinated with a phonograph needle
One summer break Same summer that I kissed her
On her daddy's boat and shot across the lake Yeah!
Oh I say mama living ain't a luxury
Oh I say mama and a lil' ain't enough for me
Oh I say mama living ain't a luxury
Oh I say mama and a lil' ain't enough for me


2. SHOOT IT

Well, look at me
Got me in her sights
Is this a blessing in disguise?
Fatality on a Saturday night
Right between the eyes
Well, honey I know you never satisfied
Just a paradise on a roll

C'Mon and take the fat chance
This ain't suicide
Sit back and let it all unfold
You better...

Shoot it, Shoot it
C'Mon baby put your best shot on me
Shoot it, Shoot it
Girl you gotta do it for a friend in need
Shoot it, Shoot it

Beggers can't be choosers in a den of thieves
Is it good for you, 'cause it's good for me!
How's your love life, how's your sister
Ooh, I can't resist
Is this the one that gets away?
Well, lemme tell ya my friend
That it's all how much you spend, baby
Not how much you make
You say you don't wanna dance
Honey listen to me
Shut yo' mouth an' hit the floor
And you can tell 'em last night
That you was blind to see
And blame it all on rock'n'roll
You Better...

Shoot it, Shoot it
C'Mon baby put your best shot on me
Shoot it, Shoot it
Girl you gotta do it for a friend in need
Talkin' about me, baby
Shoot it, Shoot it

Beggers can't be choosers in a den of thieves
Is it good for you, it's good for me!
Wow!
Whoo! Dressed to the nines
Don't cry wolf too many times, baby
But you can trust in me
Want some good clean fun?
Well, I heard you play with guns
An' I see you got a vacancy!
You say you don't wanna dance
Honey listen to me

Shut yo' mouth an' hit the floor
And you can tell 'em last night
That you was blind to see
And blame it all on rock'n'roll
Ow!

C'Mon baby put your best shot on me
I'm just a movin' target, mama
Shoot it, Shoot it
Girl you gotta do it for a friend in need

Beggers can't be choosers in a den of thieves
Is it good for you, 'cause it's great for me!
You pull yo gun, you better...

Shoot it, Shoot it
C'Mon baby put your best shot on me
Set 'em up, Shoot 'em down
Shoot it, Shoot it

A friend in need, I love ya honey!

Beggers can't be choosers in a den of thieves
Is it good for you?
It's unbelievably spectacular from over here, baby...


3. LADY LUCK

Aww yeah!
I'm off an' runnin'
Clear off the beaten path
I don't know where I'm goin'
But I know that I ain't comin' back
Don't know where I'm goin'
But I can't wait to get there
Sometimes I laugh to win
Cause he who laughs lasts
I see the headlights burnin'
Casts a magic spell
Will I make that turn?
An' only time will tell
Time after time I'm walkin' the line
Between trouble an' my Lady Luck
I can't deny that woman is mine, all right

Lady Luck
She said...
Don't sing me ballads
Life's a game for me
She liked to ride 'em cowboy
So don't throw that book at me
And ride 'em cowboy that we did
More than most could stand
Pass the buck an' live it up
Then she found another man
Who can race me child?
Who can tell it well?
Who can take me, baby?
Only time will tell!
Time after time I'm walkin' the line
Between trouble an' my Lady Luck
I can't deny that woman is mine, all right
Lady Luck, yeah!

Oooh, baby
Ow...all right
Trouble ahead, trouble behind
Woh, yeah, Lady of mine, yeah
Mine all right
Hear the light'nin', whoa yeah
And fear the thunder, whoa yeah
Aww right!

Wow!
Now baby please, baby...Please!
Lady luck, I tried to please tho'
I seen your behind, aw yeah
All right
Baby please...
Trouble ahead, Trouble behind
Never leave me Lady Luck
Trouble ahead, Trouble behind
Lady Luck
Whoa, all right...


4. HAMMERHEAD SHARK

It was a time of trouble
And a time of grief
Kings lay with whores
And begat thieves
Yeah the world was wicked
And their hearts were cold
Noah said to his missus
Well, it's time to go
Lord said to Noah
'Fore ya float that arc
You better save me a space
For my hammerhead shark
Whoa yeah, the Hammerhead Shark
Now, now now Johnny liked to drink and fight
And he raised big hell every Saturday night

When the sheriff found him
Nearly broken in two
Sheriff said to Johnny
Well, I think I know who
If he had teeth like knives
And skin like bark
You musta rumbled it up
With a Hammerhead Shark
Mmm, the Hammerhead Shark
A woman went to court
Entered her plea
Said, "Keep my husband away from me...
He don't understand what a man should know
By the time I could teach him
He'd be far too old!
Judge I found a lover ain't afraid of the dark
Honey, I'm in love with a Hammerhead Shark"

Hammerhead Shark
Watch me know, watch me know
(Here he comes)
Take it easy baby, Take it easy
(Here he comes)
Watch me know, watch me know
(Here he comes)
Wow!

Over there, over there!
Women all over, cross the USA
Got spoiled to death in the hammerhead way
President went to Congress, here's what he said:
"Gentlemen, our honor has been betrayed!
We're in deep, deep water, 'less I missed my mark
Put out an APB on the Hammerhead Shark!"

Wow!
A woman went to court
Entered her plea
Said, "Keep my husband away from me...
He don't understand what a man should know
By the time I could teach him
He'd be far too old!"
Beep bop belula bitty bop shoo wow!
I found a lover ain't afraid of the dark
Honey, I'm in love with a Hammerhead Shark

Whoa, the Hammerhead Shark
Wow!
Yeah, the Hammerhead Shark
Ooo, the hammer, hammerhead
Swim away baby!
Just a Hammerhead Shark
Shake it baby
Swim a lil faster, mama
Just a Hammerhead Shark
Just a shark on the street mama


5. TILL THE TRUTH

Smoke a cigarette
An' I know I've had enough
Mash whiskey in another paper cup
Didn't know it, babe
But yo cup was runnin' over
Never time to do it right
But it's time to do it over
And I lay awake
Big dreamers never sleep (No they don't)
Time to play the cards
Read 'em and weep
Well I, I always heard it said
That the truth will set you free
Woman with the way you do
Well how can I believe?
A smokin' mountain got to blow
I'm the livin' proof

Well, right now I think it's time
To Tell the Truth, baby
(Time to tell the truth)
Yeah, you got to try
Stop lying baby
(Time to tell the truth)

Doin' time behind these bedroom walls
Blink of an eye another shooting star falls, yeah
Tried to tell you babe
But you don't want to hear me
Take one good look
These are tears of fury
Well, then let it show
A big catastrophe, yeah yeah
Now I don't wanna know
Your social activities
If the world loves a bad guy
Well, then, how 'bout the doubt
I was first one to get in
Now I'm the last one out
Profess to love me, babe
Then, why can't I tell?
All you do is use me babe
You're lying to yourself

I think it's time...
(Time to tell the truth)
Time to tell the truth now now
Stop lying baby
(Time to tell the truth)
Time to tell the truth now, all right

Mama please
Baby please
If the world loves a bad guy
Well, then, how 'bout the doubt
Well, I was first one to get in
Now I'm the last one out
Smokin' mountain got to blow
I'm the livin' proof

And now I know it's time
Yes it is
Try
Yeah, got to try, try
(Time to tell the truth)
Yeah, tell the truth now
(Time to tell the truth)
Stop lying baby


6. BABY'S ON FIRE

Woman, I've been thinkin'
That we belong together
My intentions are bad
There's a richer man
But none better
I am two parts diamond
Some say three parts dirt
I say, "No one moves...
Nobody gets hurt!"

Woman throws up her hands
Says, "Girl you lost your mind?
You look like 17 child goin' on 29"
Baby's on Fire

Just admit it's true
I would call this bingo
If I'd even call at all
I'll pretend I'm GI Joe, yeah
You be Barbie Doll
Baby's really burnin'
Ready for the town
Daddy's good, good little girl
Burn that schoolhouse down
I'm on fire

Baby's on Fire
Ooo, puttin' the flames out!
Baby's b-b-burnin'
Burnin' up the town
Daddy's good, good little girl
Burn that schoolhouse down

Baby's on Fire
I admit it's true
Baby's on Fire
Fire...
Puttin' the flames out


7. 40 BELOW

So the lone ranger rides again
I'm gonna blow by you
Like a frozen cold freight train
I'll freeze the smile on your face
Go back, Hell no!
I just pulled up
An' lil Jack frost
Gonna bite your little butt
So honey cut to the chase
Well your famous last words
Are a hard act to follow
An' too much heat
Is too hard to swallow
Keep on wonderin' why it's gettin' so damn cold

Call me 40 Below
Cos I'm cold
One kiss of my lips and a storm begins
Give it up, honey, can't race the wind
Good lookin' here I go

Well call me 40 Below
Well, I could take a little cold shot
And try an' ease your situation
I could sock it to ya non-stop, baby
So dig on my refrigeration
Shiverin' a-shakin'
Yeah, the whole routine
You get a fast crash course
in air conditioning
Yeah, my freezer's just hummin'
Stick your face in the artic blast
An' tell everybody they can kiss my ass, oh yeah
'Cause the ice-man's comin'
I'll give you bright red cheeks
An' a runny nose
Like when the car don't start
An' yo' booty's froze
It's like you been here before
Well, honey, whattya know...Ho Ho Ho!

Well, call me 40 Below
An' I'm cold, yeah
One kiss of my lips and a storm begins
Give it up, honey, can't race the wind
Good lookin' here I go

Call me 40 Below
An' I'll be whippin' in your window
I'll be lickin' round your knees
I can drop below zero any moment, baby
I'm talkin' forty degrees...
Ah yeah!
So if you seein' down my backstreets
I suggest you button up
I don't think ya wanna test me, mama
I'm a tough little fart, wow!
Famous last words
Are a hard act to follow
An' too much heat
Is too hard to swallow
Keep on wonderin' why it's gettin' so damn cold

Call me 40 Below
And I'm cold
One kiss of my lips and a storm begins
Give it up, honey, can't race the wind
Good lookin' here I go

Well call me 40 Below
An' I'm cold
One kiss of my lips and a storm begins
Give it up, honey, can't race the wind
Good lookin' here I go

Well call me 40 Below
Feelin' so cold
Button up mama
Yeah, you'd better zip it back up
Stamp my feet
Clap your hands together
Yeah, and pray for sunny weather
Don't light that match no!
I'm melting
You're a horrible, horrible girl...


8. SENSIBLE SHOES

I got a fast car, go cruisin' down the highway
A corvette stingray, I do it my way
Got a good job, makin' lots of money
I look good and I'm funny, so why'm I lonesome honey

The gypsy said the problem with you
You need some sensible shoes

Look at this black book, it's loaded with phone numbers
Potential lovers, new worlds to discover
You would think I really have it made now
New rayban shades but I'm a heartache on parade now

I walk around with the blues
I need some sensible shoes

Sensible shoes, ones that will lead me back to you
Sensible shoes, cuz you're the only lover who was ever true
I need some sensible shoes

All my friends now, they look up to me
They wish they could be a lot more like me
But they don't know and they can't see
How I'm hurtin', how I'm empty

Lost my soul when I walked out on you
I need some sensible shoes

Sensible shoes, ones that will lead me back to you
Sensible shoes, cuz you're the only lover who was ever true
I need some sensible shoes

I got a fast car, go cruisin' down the highway
A corvette stingray, I do it my way
Got a good job, makin' lots of money
I look good and I'm funny, so why'm I lonesome honey

The gypsy said the problem with you
Ah, you know

Sensible shoes, ones that will lead me back to you
Sensible shoes, cuz you're the only lover who was ever true
Sensible shoes, ones that will lead me back to you
Sensible shoes, cuz you're the only lover that was ever True

I need some sensible shoes


9. LAST CALL

Aww right!
Long shot lover was a real bun buster
Talkin' lethal fantasy
Cos the next best thing was nothin' much
And the next best thing was me
Well, I was workin' on approval
So I got her on the rocks
And I put her on the tip of my tongue
I said, "Don't get smart with an angel, babe
You ain't the girl next door
An' we ain't done"
Wow! It's a simple fantasy

Last Call
An' I don't need no drink
This is Last Call
Could be later than you think
Last Call
Before they hit the lights
This is Last Call
But that don't mean goodnight
I'm a real good loser
Cause I get a lot of practice
With the breaks
When they're beatin' my boys
So I asked her,
"What's the only thing to do in this town?"
An' she gives me a multiple choice!
It's like Peter Pan an' Tinkerbell
Poised on the perverbial brink
I asked her,
"How the hell you get in those tight blue jeans?"
She said,
"For starters you could buy me a drink..."
Gotta stoop to conquer me

Last Call
An' I don't need no drink
This is Last Call
Could be later than you think
Last Call
Wow! Before they hit the lights
This is Last Call

But that don't mean goodnight
I'm a real good loser
Cause I get a lot of practice
With the breaks
When they're beatin' my boys
So I asked her,
"What's the only thing to do in this town?"
An' she gives me a multiple choice...
It's like Peter Pan an' Tinkerbell
Poised on the perverbial brink
I asked her,
"How the hell you get in those tight blue jeans?"
She said,
"For starters you could buy me a drink..."

It was...
Last Call
An' I don't need no drink
This is Last Call
Could be later than you think
Last Call
Wow! Before they hit the lights
This is Last Call
But that don't mean goodnight
It's later than you think...
Last Call


10. THE DOGTOWN SHUFFLE

Keep your eyes wide open, babe
If you decide to take the long walk
My city screams of danger
And you're on borrowed time
It comes from a jealous clock
And you're a permanent stranger
So the last of the wild frontier kings
Is held for further questioning
When nothing's left but death and taxes
The matter of the real fact is
You go through life as someone's doormat
Cause you don't get no sportin' chance
There ain't much distance 'tween a pat on the back
And a kick in the pants

You do the Dogtown Shuffle
Now do you talk the talk?
Yes I do!
I do the Dogtown Shuffle
But can you walk the walk?

Lemme see ya do it one time...
Some self-made guy gets it in the ass
At the local mini-mall
Looks more like a warning than an example
And late at night
They said he used to sleep the sleep of the just
I sleep the sleep of the just after
They said the wild boys go head to head
And like the good book says be quick or dead!
So ante up or let 'em go
Cause I'm filing charges on your soul
It's just a joke and you're the punchline
Yeah, the streets are a million laughs
And if I must, well in, God I trust
Everybody else gotta pay cash...

You do the Dogtown Shuffle
But can you talk the talk?
Let me hear ya!
You do the Dogtown Shuffle
But can you walk the walk?

Now purely off the record, man...
Yeah, I figured I was gonna go down
And get a little breakfast
At the local Taco Truck
Yeah, my guise could use some refinement
But I'm on a self improvement kick these days
So what the fuck?
Hey man, there was a line behind me
A line behind me...
Yeah they always try to nail ya
Mom, God, Pie the whole routine
Well here's a little trick that'll never fail ya
In your time of need

You do the Dogtown Shuffle
Yeah, can you talk the talk, baby?
You do the Dogtown Shuffle
Lemme see you walk the walk!
Walk it!

Are ya, are ya, are ya ready boots?
Start walkin'
Scuse me, but I'm new in town
I was wonderin' if I could get directions to your place?
There goes the neighborhood...


11. IT'S SHOWTIME

Lights, camera, action
There's a star upon your door
Have your machine call my machine
We'll do lunch on the cutting floor
We're over budget
98 percent not there
And when the back door hits you
Where the good Lord split you
Tell us honey, who does your hair?
How does he do it?
Why's he do it?
Yes, it's true
The flavor of the month is you
And it's practice, practice, practice
Just to get to Carnegie
We'll need 10 percent,
And that's off the top
Gross, not net to me
Get it on,

Honey 'cause It's Showtime!
Just play the song,
Baby 'cause It's Showtime!
Produce me daddy,
Takin' 8 to the bar
Big, bigger, biggest
With the right lighting you'll go far
Here today, gone late today
And it's club dates in the sticks
And you're beautiful babe, don't never shave
No prob, we'll fix it in the mix
Just leave your name and number in
The dumpster when you're through,
Oh yeah

Don't call us, we'll call you
Oscar, Grammy, triple whammy
Cut, and that's the take
Quit complainin', where's my agent?
Don't you know how much I make?
Get it on,
Baby 'cause It's Showtime!
Just play the song,
Baby 'cause It's Showtime!
Leave your name and number
In the dumpster when you're thru,
Oh yeah

Don't call us, we'll call you
And it's play it like they paid ya
And your photo goes on the car wash wall
But somehow it's all worth it
When you hear that curtain call

It's Showtime!
Oh, Baby 'cause It's Showtime!
Oh yeah, just play the song,
Baby 'cause It's Showtime!
Oh yeah, let's ge


12. DROP IN THE BUCKET

Just like the army
I was bein' all I could be
I was feelin' next to awesome
In my cleanest dirty jeans

She said
"Honey read the small print
If ya wanna be with me
When it comes to you and fashion
You're a totally emergency!

Right up the middle
Touchdown and that's the game
Extra point and you're never the same
Tight as a fiddle string
Shot right through the brain
Graspin' straws an' that ain't all
You'll slip right down her drain
Drop at a time is all ya need
Try it once but easy does it!
Satisfaction guaranteed
Try it twice, ya gotta love it!
Drop at a time is all ya need

She said, "Look, just don't touch it!"
Well, here goes one more drop in the bucket!
She wore a whole lot of not enough
And served it up with class
Had a sunny disposition
And a somewhat shady past
Her t-shirt ended early
And her hot pants started late
When it came to vice and versa
No I did not hesitate

Aww right to the action
For a bird's eye view of the play
There ain't a promise that you won't make
Hike, and keep passin'
And ya play it with a little pain
You came here for some love and war

So suit up for the game!
Drop at a time is all ya need
Try it once but easy does it!
Satisfaction guaranteed
Try it twice, ya gotta love it!
Drop at a time is all ya need
She said, "Look, just don't touch it!"
Well, here come one more drop in the bucket!
Here come one more drop in the the bucket
Gotta get it one more
