Be helpful to the shyman,
But be wary of the slyman oh baby,
Be guidance to the blindman,
And be thankful to the kind man oh baby,
Be scintillating, aggravating, penetrating, over rating,
Baby don't you know,
Be hostess with the mostest to
Whoever comes the closest,
Oh baby don't you know.

Be faithful to the true man,
Sympathetic to the blue man oh baby,
Be dwarf against the small man oh baby,
Be scrutinizing, tantalizing, appertizing,
full moon-rising,
Baby don't you know,
Be mistress with a history of mystery
And twistery,
Oh baby don't you know.

Stand up, stand up, stand up and be yourself,
Stand up, stand up, don't be nobody else,
Cos me well you see, I don't need nobody else.

Be beauty for the plain man,
But be sane for the insane man,
Oh baby don't you know,
Be dirty for the clean man,
But be shirty for the obscene man

Hand in hand happy landing,

2. LIGHTNING NEVER STRIKES BACK

Lightning never strikes twice lightning never strikes twice
Lightning never strikes me twice in one place
From an electric cloud to an electric cloud
Lightning take me for a ride into space

Saw a fast fallen star I saw a fast fallen star
Saw the twisted candle melting aways
Heard a rooster crow I heard a new day grow
Saw a sign that said way out in a maze

Who did slip me de fin
I don't know where to begin to come down
Who did slip me de trip
It ain't hip I need a grip or I'll drown

From an eternity to an eternity
I crossed the universe and wanted to stay
Passed through infinite time I passed through infinite time
Saw creation from the opposite way

Who did slip me de fin
I don't know where to begin to come down
Who did slip me de trip
It ain't hip I need a grip or I'll drown

Break

Lightning never strikes twice lightning never strikes twice
Lightning never strikes me twice in one place
And I drove in my car to catch a fast rising star
Many who are gonna sink without trace

Heard a rooster crow heard a new day grow
Saw the sign that said way out in a maze
From an eternity to an eternity
I was born again but still in a daze

Who did slip me de fin
I don't know where to begin to come down
Who did slip me de trip
It ain't hip I need a grip or I'll drown

Who did slip me de fin
I don't know where to begin to come down
Who did slip me de trip
It ain't hip I need a grip or I'll drown

Yeah

With echo to fade
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


3. GYPSY ROADHOG

Powdered my nose in Alabama
Out on a limb
Powdered my nose in Indiana
Ain't that a sin
I had to get my butt out quick
It always works - the old, old trick
I got away just in the nick of time, that's why
I powdered my nose in Oklahoma
Over the top
I wasted away in New Orleans
I couldn't stop
Down in the alley - happy dust
Me and Romona we was gettin' bust
I got away just in the nick of time, that's why
I got the nickname the Gypsy Roadhog
On the California trail
I gotta keep my wheels movin' on
I gotta keep me outa jail
Powdered my nose in San Francisco
Down on the bay
It went to my head down in New York City
I was blasted away
And two ugly scuts bust in the room
They took away my little silver spoon
I got away just in the nick of time, that's why

I'm comin' through, through, through
I'm looking for you


4. DOGS OF VENGENCE

They'll chase you
They'll race you
They'll run you to ground
Them dogs of vengeance on the prowl

They'll haunt you
They'll taunt you
They won't make a sound
Mark well the trickery dogs that don't howl

They'll psych you
They'll strike you
They're hot on your heels
Them dogs of vengeance are unreal

They'll track you
They'll crack you
They'll melt nerves of steel
Some sad obituary you are the meal

So come to my castle you innocent souls
Some good entertainment I've planned
Come to my chamber and I will unfold
Some exquisite passion so grand
Some torment the best in the land

Break

They'll hound you
Then surround you
Then get set to attack
Them dogs of vengeance on the prowl

They'll claw you
Then tug-a-war you
There'll be no turning back
Accept my sanctuary throw in the towel

So come to my castle you innocent souls
Some good entertainment I've planned
Come to my chamber and I will unfold
Some exquisite passion so grand
Some torment the best in the land

Some exquisite passion so grand
Some torment the best in the land
Some good entertainment I've planned
Them dogs are still hard on your heels
Them dogs gonna melt nerves of steel
Them dogs gonna make you the meal


5. WHEN FANTASY CALLS

Juicy fruit
Cock-a hoot
You're comin' on strong
You're comin' on strong
Not so fast
Make it last
The feeling takes time
It's yours and it's mine

Oh when fantasy calls
It takes all the balls you possess
Oh them houses of pleasure
Where can I find this address

Break

What's in store
Thrills galore
You're turning me on
You're turning me on
Slip and slide
Open wide
The feelings so good
Just like it should

Oh when fantasy calls
It takes all the balls you possess
And them houses of pleasure
Where can I find this address

Oh oh when fantasy calls
It takes all the balls you possess
And them houses of pleasure
Where can I find this address


6. ONE EYED JACKS WITH MOUSTACHES

One Eyed Jacks With Moustaches
Are wild on the side
Two eyed queens makin' passes
With childs on the side
Hard hearted Mamas who ain't
Cold as ice on the side.

Bald headed eagles like to
Feather their nests on the side,
Wide eyed Madonnas like to
Treasure their chests on the side,
Smooth talkin' Gigolo[s] are going along for the ride.

Hit me, hit me, hit me Mac
Gimme a jack before I pack
Hit me, hit me, hit me Joe
Gimme a hit before I go.

I'm gonna tell ya pretty Mama,
That you don't know no lie,
I'm gonna tell ya pretty baby,
That you won't make me cry,
Umma gumma uma uma,
Make me feel good,
Ooh pretty baby baby,
Just like you should
Come a come a baby,
Don't you tell me no lie,
Come a come a honey honey
Don't make me cry
The hard hearted Mamas
Are sure on the side
And One Eyed Jacks
With Moustaches are wild.

One Eyed Jacks With Moustaches,
Are wild on the side,
Two eyed queens with eyelashes
That flashes and cried
Hard hearted Mamas who talk
To you nice on the ride


7. BIG APPLE BLUES

City streets where the steam and the heat never goes to Sleep
What a sight all the yellow and tans and the black and Whites
There's also a dark shade of blue struttin' along two by two
Their guns hangin' low like the cowboys you dig in the old Gunfights

But still I got hooked on them big apple blues
And I got hung up on them big apple blues
And I got strung up on them big apple blues
I ain't got nothin' to lose

Them hot licks from the hicks satisfy the Manhattan chicks
Them cool schmucks get their hooks on the bucks with their Sexy looks
They all know how to do what good little girls shouldn't do
I don't care 'bout evasion cos all o' that hassle sucks

But still I got hooked on them big apple blues
And I got hung up on them big apple blues
And I got strung up on them big apple blues
I ain't got nothin' to lose

Break

I got got turned on
I got got turned on
I got got turned on
I got got turned on

I got got turned on
I got got hooked on

City streets where the steam and the heat never goes to Sleep
And city walls standing tall if you fall no-one hears you Call
There are bodies all filled up with wine sayin' buddy have You got a dime
The apple ain't bad it's just bruised and I'm glad that it's There at all


8. DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES

On the day we pulled the bank job
Mugsy Baker he stopped some lead
He don't always pack the hardware but
We sure did need some bread

Everything was running smoothly
All the folks were cool and calm
Till some smartass he came the hero
And then he sounded the alarm

Dead men don't tell no tales no deceit no betrayals
Their only time time time Is fading away
Dead men don't tell no lies they don't need no alibi's
Their only time time time is wasting away

Soon the building was surrounded
Not a chance to make a break
We was trapped the cops were closin' in
Them bullets were no fake

As the good guy he lay there bleedin'
Me the bad guy I started to retch
Then old Mugsy he caught a ricochet
We were heading for a stretch

Dead men don't tell no tales no deceit no betrayals
Their only time time time Is fading away
Dead men don't tell no lies they don't need no alibi's
Their only time time time is wasting away

Break

In the holdup there was Mugsy
Me and Benjamin the bear
Mugs would rather go down fightin' just
To save him from the chair

Dead men don't tell no tales no deceit no betrayals
Their only time time time Is fading away
Dead men they don't tell no lies they don't need no alibi's
Their only time time time is wasting away

But still I got hooked on them big apple blues
And I got hung up on them big apple blues
I got strung on switched on hooked on them big apple blues
I got hooked on snooked on cooked on them big apple blues
Why I got to hang on to hang on to hang on to hang on to them blues
Why I got hooked on cooked on snooked on them big apple blues
And I got hooked on them big apple blues
I ain't got nothin' to lose


9. SHE'S GOT THE LOT

That painted lady
That satin doll
That lazy shady walk that makes her look like a moll

Dressed up in diamonds
She won't take no less
Guess someone must have poured her into that dress

She's got the lot what she's got's all her own
She's got so much that she can leave some at home
She won't come in unless she knows she's invited
Her feel her smell her touch just gets me oh so excited

That wild aroma
Paris perfume
It just takes over when she walks in the room

Won't get neglected
She don't get no chance
Don't feel rejected if she refuses to dance

She's got the lot and what she's got's all her own
She's got so much that she can leave some at home
She won't come in unless she knows she's invited
Her feel her smell her touch just gets me oh so excited

Break

That chic cheeky lady
She's gonna get what she picks
She can wear you out and she can milk you dry with them Tricks

That wiley styley lady
With sophisticated quips
She can eat you up and she can spit you out with them lips

She's got the lot what she's got's all her own
She's got so much that she can leave some at home
She won't come in unless she knows she's invited
Her feel her smell her touch just gets me oh so excited
