Sleeping in your Shirt
(STEELE)

back up

when these four walls feel so cold
and the one that you want, you can’t hold
when your heart’s a thousand miles away from here
just hold on and make it through another day
these crowded rooms feel so lonely
and your head is in a another place
and you think about the time we spend together
never knowing when I’d see your face

I’m sleeping in your shirt tonight
From dark till morning light
I wake up with you, cause
I’m sleeping in your shirt tonight

telephone rings it brings a smile
but it don’t seem to fill this empty heart
as the days go on you try to remember
when we’re together not when we’re apart

I’m sleeping in your shirt tonight
From dark till morning light
I wake up with you, cause
I’m sleeping in your shirt tonight

it won’t be long till this memory
and you’ll awake from this dream
the long road makes love stronger than before
the answer is just behind the door

I’m sleeping in your shirt tonight
From dark till morning light
I wake up with you, cause
I’m sleeping in your shirt tonight

 
Fifty Years
(STEELE)
back up

it’s time, to make a checklist
to find, what you’re looking for
behind, water under the bridge
ahead, can’t be for sure
take it slow a step at a time
be aware keep an open eye

sit back enjoy the ride
let your soul be your guide
stand up for what you say
I wouldn’t do it any other way

friends, it’s a social thing
don’t believe all you hear
trust, is not for everyone
lies, come from everywhere
in this world of damaged goods
move ahead, you got to believe

sit back enjoy the ride
let your soul be your guide
stand up for what you say
I wouldn’t do it any other way

love, is a funny thing
it shines, and makes you warm inside
then, the sun turns to rain
dreams, just disappear
hold on turn it around
be strong, never hesitate

sit back enjoy the ride
let your soul be your guide
stand up for what you say
I wouldn’t do it any other way


 
Baby's Eyes
(STEELE)
back up

I’m a lucky guy here’s the reason why
I have this love in my life
what you do to me it’s so heavenly
you make me feel all right

the way you walk and baby talk
make me smile all the time
the clouds disappear when you’re near
you fill me up with sunshine

my baby’s eyes talk to me
my baby’s eyes see clearly
my baby’s eyes shine like the stars
my baby’s eyes my baby’s eyes

you were meant for me real chemistry
all the pieces fit in place
there’s no mystery when you look at me
eye to eye and face to face

my baby’s eyes talk to me
my baby’s eyes see clearly
my baby’s eyes shine like the stars
my baby’s eyes my baby’s eyes

 

 

Back to Yesterday
(STEELE / LINGO)

back up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

when the world moves too fast
it’s like you’re standing still
beyond the smoke and broken glass
some memories from the past
working hard to survive
day after day
I know a place we can go
where the lights are turned down low

you can keep tomorrow, get back to yesterday
throw away the future, get back to yesterday

young dudes in cyber space
muppets on the news
movie stars selling cars
and Russians on the moon
will our kids have a place to go
to live their dreams
we must do what must be done
a better life for everyone

you can keep tomorrow, get back to yesterday
throw away the future, get back to yesterday

remember when we were young
in summertime
long days and wild nights
making love instead of fights
where do we go from here
it’s anybody’s guess
watching life slowly disappear
in a day, a month, a year

you can keep the future, get back to yesterday
throw away tomorrow, get back to yesterday
you can keep tomorrow, get back to yesterday
throw away the future, get back to yesterday

 

 

Cowboys and Outlaws
(STEELE)
back up

when gunmen and gamblers
speak of the life they led
there’s Cherokee Bill from Texas
at twelve shot a man dead
there’s no law west of St. Louis
no God west of Arkansas
John Wesley Hardin killed forty men
he was fast on the draw

cowboys and outlaws
a colt forty-five on their side
you trust no one you’re on the run
to stay alive

in Deadwood Wild Bill
was playing poker they said
when Jack McCall fired one shot
into the back of his head
blind justice will be served
in a blink of an eye
a drunkard judge hears your plea
but still hangs them high

cowboys and outlaws
a colt forty-five on their side
you trust no one you’re on the run
to stay alive

renegades and rebels
in Oklahoma they roam
Doc Holiday a gambling man
Fixed teeth down in Tombstone

cowboys and outlaws
a colt forty-five on their side
you trust no one you’re on the run
to stay alive

 
Long Long Way
(STEELE)
back up

well I miss the hill where it all began
a cheap guitar in my hand
Gary by my side in a rag top ride
we were so young and had a lot to say
I miss big pie and green cadillac’s
making the sounds at the peaceland shack
the beacons bright Dunes shines the light
I’m lucky to have this in my life

sometimes it’s good sometimes it’s bad
when you’re a long long way
long way from home
you realize what you had
when you’re a long long way
long way from home

I truly miss the ranch and the guys
cooking up a storm on a Tuesday night
the dog has a bone and Lola sings alone
Nelson comes late and Lingo slides in
right before your eyes people harmonize
Matty makes the lion roar
Dennis comes in with a silly grin
it’s time for us to lock the door

sometimes it’s good sometimes it’s bad
when you’re a long long way
long way from home
you realize what you had
when you’re a long long way
long way from home

tracer on the point at the joint
ma ma Leslie walks threw the door
ready Freddy said knock’em dead
and Tracy falls to the floor
when this life’s moving way too fast
the world keeps spinning round
you need a shot to help you out
and keep your feet right on the ground

sometimes it’s good sometimes it’s bad
when you’re a long long way
long way from home
you realize what you had
when you’re a long long way
long way from home

 

 
Growing up has let you Down
(STEELE / LINGO)
back up

the years fly by, as you get old
you feel the summer heat turn to winters cold
you should be somewhere by now
in the game of life
circumstance beyond control
cuts like a knife but time marches on

as you walk in these shoes
the world is spinning round and round
you realize you’re going to loose
when growing up has let you down

a distant memory comes to mind
you never learn to read between the lines
a broken home a damaged heart
is your epitaph
friends you lost along the way
will never come back, but try, try to hold on

as you walk in these shoes
the world is spinning round and round
you realize you’re going to loose
when growing up has let you down
when growing up has let you down

cold and lonely in your heart
the tender thread of life torn apart
how did I end up here
you’ll never know
I see the end is getting near
It’s time to go, so take, take a deep breath

as you walk in these shoes
the world is spinning round and round
you realize you’re going to loose
when growing up has let you down
when growing up has let you down
when growing up has let you down

 
I Love you in love with Mem m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m
(STEELE / LINGO)
back up

what you do to me, I can’t believe
how your body talks, smooth and soft
you make me kind of weak, I feel the heat
you’re deep in my soul, you should know
hold on baby, take a ride

what you do to me, I can’t believe
how your body talks, smooth and soft
you make me kind of weak, I feel the heat
you’re deep in my soul, you should know
hold on baby, take a ride

I love, you in love with me
I love, you in love with me

you make it feel right, out of sight
I feel I’m in a dream, my passion screams
so hold me close, coast to coast
you’re whispering, those little things
there’s more here than meets the eye

I love, you in love with me
I love, you in love with me
I love, you in love with me
I love, you in love with me

I know it’s not heaven, it’s enough for me
it’s a warm embrace, that’s in my life
face to face, eye to eye
love and passion, you can’t replace
come with me and hold on tight

I love, you in love with me
I love, you in love with me
I love, you in love with me
I love, you in love with me

 
Balance
(STEELE)
back up

when I turned a year the moon was full
inside I was empty vacant and still
a cold dark wind was around me
I was locked in myself
searching for a key
felt life had dealt me a rotten hand
so confused was not the same man
if you bargain with pain you loose the game
you don't see the change and it's all the same

you need balance in you life
balance left to right
balance to feel complete
put you right back on your feet

when you can't understand and you feel abandon
and theirs no control and you can't find the door
when you watch all you dreams just slip away
you stay home you don't have much to say

you need balance in you life
balance left to right
balance to feel complete
put you right back on your feet

 

 
Testify
(STEELE / LINGO)
back up

the money’s gone lost my job
it’s time to leave this town
a bitter taste left inside
makes you turn around

feel the power, testify
save your soul and save your life
from the heart, testify
close your eyes and open your mind

the hourglass it never stops
it’s later than you think
the promise land next stop
what you give is what you’ll receive

feel the power, testify
save your soul and save your life
from the heart, testify
close your eyes and open your mind


 
Gotta get a Gun
(STEELE)
back up

the wild west don’t ever change
cowboys ride pickup trucks
on the open range
work your fingers to the bone
it’s a hard life
protect your family and your home
and do what’s right

in the heat of the desert sun
this unforgiving world
where danger runs
coyotes and rattlesnakes hunt this land
what ever you may face
you need a hand

whoa oh gotta get a gun
bang bang shoot ‘em son
whoa oh gotta get a gun

obey the law be a strong man
don’t let your pride be compromised
pay attention all the time
watch your back
have compassion in your heart
and keep on track

whoa oh gotta get a gun
bang bang shoot ‘em son
whoa oh gotta get a gun


 

 

 

 

BACK in the GARAGE
 

Back in the Garage
(STEELE)


back up

an old guitar and sparkle drums
a little bass with a microphone
strong desires live inside
watch your dreams come alive

back in the garage
back in the garage

working hard night and day
now you have some thing’s to say
keep it close to your heart
just remember where you start

back in the garage
back in the garage

behind the door it’s magical
a brotherhood of song
inspiration takes control
when three become one

back in the garage
back in the garage

 

 
Be Careful
(STEELE)
back up

in this life nothings free
a paperback mystery
everyone plays a part
from the end to the start
heaven highs and desperate lows
in privacy of your home
then you learn to play the game
stand up or begin to fade

be careful what you wish for
you might become surprised
be careful what you wish for
it will hit you between the eyes

make your mark in history
try to serve humanity
your next in line feel the heat
it’s the law of the streets

be careful what you wish for
you might become surprised
be careful what you wish for
it will hit you between the eyes

in your dreams you feel alive
as you awake you want to die
your hands are tied you can’t speak
there’s nothings left but retreat

be careful what you wish for
you might become surprised
be careful what you wish for
it will hit you between the eyes

 

 
Wicked Nation
(STEELE)
back up

these changing times will decide
how you live and die
this terror lives everywhere
try to run try to hide

wicked nation the big machine marches on
wicked nation sing a sad sad song

desperation way of life
starving kids never cry
what you see is what you get
like a page of history

wicked nation the big machine marches on
wicked nation sing a sad sad song

beware the coming tides
who will survive
in times of desperation
we stand together with inspiration

 

 

King of the Hill
(STEELE)

I think about my neighborhood
and all the boys where I grew up
hanging at the coffee shop
where the jukebox never stop
together is all we had
church dances and raising hell
we never had it all too bad
as far as we can tell
time was on our side
and dreams became alive

all the money in the world don’t mean a thing
it’s what you say and what you do
you’ll find out before your old
you take a thrill to be king of the hill

meet me at the city steps
there’s a girl who wants to meet you
she got a pretty smile
and her friends kind of cute
we could have a double date
saturday at tibetts pool
take a walk around the lake
everything’s gonna be so cool
summer breeze it’s you were meant to be

all the money in the world don’t mean a thing
it’s what you say and what you do
you’ll find out before your old
you take a thrill to be king of the hill

Reality T.V.
(STEELE)
back up

you think you’re a survivor
put yourself to the test
dancing round the fire
talking like the best
do you believe in what you see
fulfill you destiny
if you loose you join the pool
of reality’s history

reality t.v. the great society
watching every move we make
live your life in shame
for fifteen minutes of fame
and never to be heard from again

you wanna be a millionaire
have everything you need
make the people stop and stare
at this life you lead
can you take the factor of fear
measure your level of stress
have yourself a new career
hounded by the press

reality t.v. the great society
watching every move we make
live your life in shame
for fifteen minutes of fame
and never to be heard from again

 

 
Valium
(STEELE)
back up

we’re living in a quick fix world
where money matters
anything you will ever need at anytime
you play with fire just suicide
you’re the walking dead
high society fantasize
in your head

the monster lives in your soul
he’s in control
their’s no escape from despair no one cares
you can’t change this lifestyle
you’re a broken man
denial throws away your dreams
a broken child

valium valium

always a price to pay
you can count on that
in the little words we say
you can’t take back

valium valium

 

 
This Lesson
(STEELE / KELLY)
back up

everyday I try to find my peace of mind
what do I find today, today
every heartbeat fading faster
I see the light begin to fade away
fade away

I learned this lesson
so many times
all these words were spoken
it’s time to say good-bye

every chance I’ll say a prayer
and maybe I’ll be pointed to where
I’ll go, where I’ll go

I learned this lesson
so many times
all these words were spoken
it’s time to say good-bye

dirty secrets locked inside
some forgotten some survive
tied of waiting for the time
face to face eye to eye

food for your soul confession

live it up tear it down
friends and lovers lost and found
as your world tears apart
like a child’s broken heart

food for your soul confession
do what your told confession

silent killer never dies
feel the pain feel alive
hit the bottom you will find
another way another life

food for your soul confession
do what your told confession

when you need a break from this crazy world
where boys can be boys without drama girls
do the things guys want to do
hanging out without a clue

boys in the boys club boys in the boys club

still talking about those glory days
you live in the past believe what you say
it’s the same story it’s always true
a man gonna do what a man gonna do

boys in the boys club boys in the boys club

joking and smoking and raising hell
it could get ugly you never can tell
you hit it hard you pay the price
how many more times

boys in the boys club boys in the boys club

Walking Away
 

Peaceland
(STEELE / RADIN)

back up

times are bad in this world
people living in despair
I don’t what happened
then I woke up here

what I do everyday
makes it all worth while
living in paradise don’t cramp my style

peaceland, peaceland, my life's in harmony
peaceland, peaceland, it’s home to me

now I know why I’m here
everything is in place
in my mind it’s very clear
it’s amazing grace

anything is possible
nothing that you can’t do
I live these words everyday
it takes me right to you

peaceland, peaceland, my life's in harmony
peaceland, peaceland, it’s home to me

I got lucky for a reason
I didn’t understand
guess I can count my blessing
being dealt this hand

many people struggling
just to stay alive
you must return what’s
and keep it all in stride

peaceland, peaceland, my life's in harmony
peaceland, peaceland, it’s home to me

 

 
I Wear These Shoes
(STEELE)
back up

you walk with me in this world
only to find the missing girl
inside your mind, you see the face
of broken dreams, and empty space
where am I going, what is the reason

I wear these shoes, it’s who I am and
I’ll wear these shoes again

do you believe in magic
a leap of faith, so tragic
take my hand, do you feel
state of mind spin the wheel
where am I going, what is the reason

I wear these shoes, it’s who I am and
I’ll wear these shoes again

you feel so trapped, everyday
into thin air you fade away
then all at once, you see yourself
a hopeful look, a cry for help
where am I going, what is the reason

I wear these shoes, it’s who I am and
I’ll wear these shoes again

 

 
Gone
(STEELE / LINGO)
back up

your painting the town
money to burn
time to kill, allot to learn

that’s how it is it all goes around
here today then it’s gone

sweet flower girl, needs to know
who I am, where do I go

you gotta hold on
be strong, stand up
give it all you got

little schoolboy, don’t fit in
he needs a place
to sink his heels in

 

 
Now and Then
(STEELE)
back up

many years I‘ve lived alone
living in a house of stone
my secret fortress underground
by the river at the edge of town

then this love embraced my heart
it shook me good from the start
I was scared and confused
all to gain and nothing left to loose

this is now and that was then
the road begins, the road ends
life’s surprises, just around the bend
this is now and that was then

all your choices come with a price
you take your chances many times
sad emotions fill your dreams
in a whirlpool somewhere down stream

this is now and that was then
the road begins, the road ends
life’s surprises, just around the bend
this is now and that was then

 

 
Country Style
(STEELE)
back up

crowded city traffic jams
people doing the best they can
hard to move hard to breathe
this ain't the life for me

there's a certain local charm
that will take you by the arm
folks down here pay no mind
to fancy life styles

in a country style you feel like family
in a country style for me

there’s real cooking nice company
good values rich history
there's no fuss anytime
when you're around just stop on by

in a country style you feel like family
in a country style for me

telling stories by the fire
picking some, on a old guitar
friday nights at town hall
there's a dance come one come all
katie wants to be a star
bobby drives a hot rod car
the simple life in harmony
It’s the only way to be

in a country style you feel like family
in a country style for me

put you right back on your feet

when you can't understand and you feel abandon

when you watch all you dreams just slip away
you stay home you don't have much to say

you need balance in you life
balance left to right
balance to feel complete
put you right back on your feet

 

 
Deadbeat Girlfriend

my friend’s girlfriend treats him like a king
she thinks she knows the recipe to earn her that ring
but maybe baby you take a lesson or two
I like to get that kind of love out of you
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, gotta pay your dues
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I’m waiting on you

she comes by with an apple pie, and it’s homemade too
and I’m so lucky just to get a dunking donut from you
You’re reading Martha Stewart girl and the frugal gourmet
I hope you put that knowledge to use one of these days
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, don’t act so sublime
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you owe me big time
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you gotta pay your dues
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I’m waiting on you

so come on over now, I ain’t asking for much
just spruce up the trailer, it sue could use a woman's touch
hand me the chicken, crack me a beer
whip me up a tasty snack, then get you butt right back here
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you think your cool
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I ain’t nobody's fool
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you gotta pay your dues
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I’m waiting on you

through my eyes this time
how different it could be
to the other side
trying to believe, all my thoughts collide
and I don’t know what to do
and I keep looking foe you
your go walking away
your walking away

I dream about you
in my arms tonight
the candle shined the light
your eyes sparkle bright
when love comes over you
you feel so alive
and what's not happening here
is coming quite so clear

so time becomes the space
we put in it’s place
it’s hard to look at you
all the things we been through
crying all the time, the world goes by
the days turn into night
you never know the reasons why

 

 
Fifty Years

it’s time, to make a checklist
to find, what you’re looking for
behind, water under the bridge
ahead, can’t be for sure
take it slow a step at a time
be aware keep an open eye

sit back enjoy the ride
let your soul be your guide
stand up for what you say
I wouldn’t do it any other way

friends, it’s a social thing
don’t believe all you hear
trust, is not for everyone
lies, come from everywhere
in this world of damaged goods
move ahead, you got to believe

sit back enjoy the ride
let your soul be your guide
stand up for what you say
I wouldn’t do it any other way

love, is a funny thing
it shines, and makes you warm inside
then, the sun turns to rain
dreams, just disappear
hold on turn it around
be strong, never hesitate

sit back enjoy the ride
let your soul be your guide
stand up for what you say
I wouldn’t do it any other way

 

 

Way Up High
(STEELE)

back up

take a deep breath, clear your mind
away from the madness
that threatens these times
it’s time to find some peace

Careless and thoughtless we intercede
enable the process to honor the thief
I know we need release

way up high the wind sings
the stars shine on everything
a gentle breeze fills your soul
way up high

don’t you wonder why we’re here
rain and thunder laughter and tears
I will show you the way

life’s a circle spinning around
changing the balance, upside down
will you take my hand
look around you, what do you see
you call this living, I don’t agree
it’s time to close your eyes

 

 
Comes Around
(STEELE)
back up

I the kind of man who says what's on his mind
I don’t play game to justify the time
I live my life take it as it comes
you can’t change the past, sweet dreams I done.

it comes around, it all comes around again
it comes around, it all comes around again

when I’m loosing it, from the daily grind
gotta break it down, a minute at a time
try to keep my eyes looking straight ahead
there will be a sign, should I move ahead

it comes around, it all comes around again
it comes around, it all comes around again

it’s time to decide, what I want to do
to live my life with or without you
time will tell the answer, I can’t be for sure
I hope theirs a place for an open door

it comes around, it all comes around again
it comes around, it all comes around again

 

 
Another Time
(STEELE)
back up

since glory day’s things have changed alot
preacher man don’t seem the same anymore
eating hot dogs and moms apple pie
watching video on terrorist suicide
there people dying in our neighborhoods
kids taking guns to school

in another time we watched the children play
in another time we had so much more to say
in another time we didn’t know it then
we’re getting one day closer to where we are today

a call to arms another world away
fear and doubt plague society
money scarce work is hard to find
it’s no picnic living in these times
we sit on cyber easy chairs
Filling up every desire

in another time we watched the children play
in another time we had so much more to say
in another time we didn’t know it then
we’re getting one day closer to where we are today

It's time to have fun, right now
Keep your head up everyday
Show your love
Today is here just look around
Yesterdays gone don't be sad

Love, show your love.
Love, show your love.

Love in the car or a mile high
In the girls room going down
Show your love
It's the fever in my head
Hit the switch burning red

Love, show your love.
Love, show your love.

It's getting hot, on the point
Take a shot, hold on tight

Love, show your love.
Love, show your love

 

 
Isolation
(STEELE)
back up

I'm badly broken, fallen down
Destitution, is all around
Feeling lonesome, in the dark
Vacancy takes my heart

A cold silence, fills the air
All my dreams disappear
Waking up on the floor
Nothing matters, anymore
I sleep for days at a time
What's up ahead, was left behind

Isolation, Isolation

Fear and pain you embrace
You lost control, in your soul
No one talks, no one hears
No lies, No fear
The will to live, wants to die
Life reflects, in your mind

Isolation, Isolation

 

 
Golden Boy
(STEELE)
back up

Everything you wanted
And all your dreams
Just thrown before you it's a mystery
Back stage passes you’re on the scene
It's a rockstar circus
Won't ya’ come with me

Golden, golden boy
They stand in line every night
Golden, golden boy
Hypnotized goldenboy

Center of attention moves real slow
He's in the boys club
Got the babes in tow
He takes a lot on the perks
He's a lonesome boy
Say what it's worth

Golden, golden boy
They stand in line every night
Golden, golden boy
Hypnotized goldenboy

Call my cell
What times the drop
Some majorette took a pit stop
So watch the door better lay low
It's top secret don't tell a soul

Golden, golden boy
They stand in line every night
Golden, golden boy
Hypnotized goldenboy

 

 
Road Rager
(STEELE)
back up

A lead footboy sets the pace
We should move from place to place
When it slows down he can't deal
His body sweats he grips the wheel
He lost control no one's safe
A blank stare comes across his face
The hunt begins he finds his prey
A quick kill then he's on his way

Road rager coming up behind you
Road rager look out in your rear view
Road rager better keep an open eye
Road rager be careful when you drive

An angry man no peter pan
Inside his mind just white lines
He don't care young or old
College girls on cell phones
Now its time to play the game
Get on the stick get blown away
In his wake of broken dreams
Twisted steel mad dog screams

Road rager coming up behind you
Road rager look out in your rear view
Road rager better keep an open eye
Road rager be careful when you drive

Mannequin
(STEELE)
back up

Your eyes fixed on the hourglass
Feel your mortality
A bottle of designer chemicals
It's a crime baby
A media assault, no one can survive
Mirror on the wall never tells a lie

Mannequin
You gotta have a wrinkle when you’re fifty
Mannequin
Your pocketbook keeps you pretty

So what's real, in reality
It's just what you believe
Inside you find a harmony
So few get to see
Vanity deluxe, is top priority
While rich boy toys,
Infect society

Mannequin
You ought to have a wrinkle cause your fifty
Mannequin
Face the facts you’re no Britney

 

 
Together Alone
(STEELE)
back up

Welcome to your life, take a chair
It's like those old times, way up high
Primetime news is on the tube
You don't know right from wrong

I don't recall the time of year
When your touch turned so cold
Something's they never change
Together alone

All your fears explode, in your head
See the light disappear, as you descend
Shattered love, lives alone
Everyday of your life

I don't recall the time of year
When your touch turned so cold
Something's they never change
Together alone

See the world tonight, the full moon shines
Time to go to bed, and rest my eyes
Awake the dreams, set me free
From this life of misery

I don't recall the time of year
When your touch turned so cold
Something's they never change
Together alone

 

 
Falling Down
(STEELE)
back up

It's three am the fire burns
Deep inside your mind
Could you survive buried alive
When everything is black
Do you believe all you see
You might slip through the cracks

Little boys are falling down
Little girls are falling down

Get ready set, get on your mark
And kill the enemy
All is good, misunderstood
Is not exactly what I see
Sex and crime all the time
Week nights on local tv

Moms and dads are falling down
Good kids are falling down
Everything's falling down
Say good-bye

All the time falling down
Everyone's falling down
Little girls falling down
Say good-bye

 

 
November
(STEELE)
back up

Here comes another day
Sunrise takes the sky, with morning light
The leaves fly around
Like little butterflies, against the sky
The wind sings a sad song
School bell rings, kids go home

November, remember, then

The stars crystallize
Across the velvet sky, sleep tight
Full moon peeks her eye
Rise to her throne, all alone
The holidays come to town
Families all gather round

November, remember, then

Everything has its time
All things must end, Amen
The old becomes the new
It happens all the time, so divine
Disappeared, before my eyes
Turn away, and begin to cry

November, remember, then

 

 
Country Style
(STEELE)
back up

Crowded city traffic jams
People doing the best they can
Hard to move hard to breathe
This ain't the life for me

There's a certain local charm
That will take you by the arm
Folks down here pay no mind
To fancy life styles

In a country style you feel like family
In a country style for me

There’s real cooking nice company
Good values rich history
There's no fuss anytime
When you're around just stop on by

In a country style you feel like family
In a country style for me

Telling stories by the fire
Picking some, on a old guitar
Friday nights at town hall
There's a dance come one come all
Katie wants to be a star
Bobby drives a hot rod car
The simple life in harmony
It’s the only way to be

In a country style you feel like family
In a country style for me

My Life
(STEELE)
back up

I got an apartment above the fishing store
it took some time to walk through this door
nothing easy that matters much
a soft whisper a tender touch
you’re hanging on by a thread, spinning out of control
in my life I’ve seen sunshine, seen the magic come and go
in my life it’s always changing,
never know what’s coming down the road

I got my problems, like everyone
two ex-wives a rock n’ roll son
it’s not easy to keep the peace
I pray at night for some relief
all the time it’s a fight can’t seem to get a break
in my life I’ve seen sunshine, I’ve seen love come and go
in my life it’s always changing,
never know what’s coming down the road

when friend and lovers fade away
bad memories still remain
don’t look back it’s no win,
just turn it around
in my life I’ve seen sunshine, I’ve seen joy come and go
in my life it’s always changing,
never know what’s coming down the road

 

 
River People

back up

walk with me through the sand
to where the water meets the land
standing on the rivers edge
there will be no pretence
follow me down to the river of love
let it wash away your sins
pushing you in are you gonna swim

we are river people, dancing in the rain
feel the cool clear water, wash away the pain
we are river people dancing on the shores
love to feel the water, makes your body pure

standing in the pale moonlight
watch the river start to rise
when the sun goes down at night
river people come to life
hear the children laughing everywhere
drowning in their innocence
ignorance is their bliss

we are river people, dancing in the rain
feel the cool clear water, wash away the pain
we are river people dancing on the shores
love to feel the water, makes your body pure

spirit wants to take control
but the soul is weak
let the rain fall down on you
the water sets you free

we are river people, dancing in the rain
feel the cool clear water, wash away the pain
we are river people dancing on the shores
love to feel the water, makes your body pure

hypnotized you realized
the face in the mirror
so many lives pass you by
a moment in time
you touch you feel, it’s fake it’s real
you pray you try you love you die

in my body within my soul
comes a power dark and cold
in my body fire burns
passion screams in my body

beyond the light comes the night
soon it will be time
no escape it’s your fate
seek and you will find
you take you give, you hope you live
you lose you find, it’s yours it’s mine

in my body within my soul
comes a power dark and cold
in my body fire burns
passion screams in my body

thunder in the distance
lightning in the sky
treetops dance in the wind
like a chorus line
let the heavens shower me
and wash my tear away

I’m waiting for the rain
waiting for the rain
I’m waiting for the rain

blue sky fades to grey
in a blink of an eye
a dead calm fills the air
let the angels cry
feel your cool waterfall
let the sun take a holiday

I’m waiting for the rain
Waiting for the rain
I’m waiting for the rain

I never liked first place
take my hand come with me
you learn to walk naturally

catwalk right to left
catwalk better watch your step
catwalk don’t make a sound
it’s a long long way down

now it’s clear found a way
keep my spirit high
never drink from copper cups
they always leave you dry
take my hand come with me
you learn to walk naturally

catwalk better watch your step
catwalk don’t make a sound

since glory day’s things have changed allot
preacher man don’t seem the same anymore
eating hot dogs and moms apple pie
watching video on terrorist suicide
there people dying in our neighborhoods
kids taking guns to school

in another time we watched the children play
in another time we had so much more to say
in another time we didn’t know it then
we’re getting one day closer to where we are today

a call to arms another world away
fear and doubt plague society
money scarce work is hard to find
it’s no picnic living in these times
we sit on cyber easy easy chairs
filling up every desire

in another time we watched the children play
in another time we had so much more to say
in another time we didn’t know it then
we’re getting one day closer to where we are today

 

 
Two Sides
(STEELE)
back up

words don’t mean a thing to me
when you can’t look at me
don’t you think it’s time

you live a world of lies
and cover ups you hide
behind your little boy smile
playtime for the child
your mommy dearest

information junkies, fiber optic flunkies
there’s two sides to the story

crowds gather at your feet
your in the drivers seat
leader of the pack
cub scouts don’t know jack
to have a hand inside
to make you laugh and cry
all your crimes stack high
it makes me wonder

information junkies, fiber optic flunkies
there’s two sides to the story

 

 
Everybody Wants To ...

back up

down the street at the local club
there’s jams on Thursday nights
hosted by t bag Jon come inside
the people come from all around
to get a slice of fame
some are harmless to the ear
but some can cause pain

everybody wants to be in the band
everybody wants to be a star
this time it’s getting out of hand
stage fright should come back around

the captain and the German girl fifty fifty too
fireman Joe waits for his time to make his move
the bartender gets a chance
shouting can a brother get a table dance
his shirt flew off his skin so knurled
it’s like sea world

everybody wants to be in the band
everybody wants to be a star
this time it’s getting out of hand
stage fright should come back around

there’s owners and operators
you just forgot the difference

all the cats play for free and t bag he don’t mine
he fills his pockets to the top every time
I remember the old times where the gifted graced the stage
now it’s open cattle call for musically deranged

everybody wants to be in the band
everybody wants to be a star
this time it’s getting out of hand
stage fright should come back around
come back around, come back around,
come back around

sweet flower girl, needs to know
who I am, where do I go

that’s how it is it all goes around
here today then it’s gone, gone, gone

you gotta hold on
be strong, stand up
give it all you got

little schoolboy, don’t fit in
he needs a place
to sink his heels in

that’s how it is it all goes around
here today then it’s gone
that’s how it is it all goes around
here today then it’s gone, gone, gone.

she’s a drama ma ma , just like it is on T.V.

you better be careful, when you go out

changing the balance, upside down

come with me it’s your time
you will see inside my mind
it’s all around try to hide
journey starts enjoy the ride
another time another place
another love another face
shallow people who surround
walk on you and knock you down

this old soul descends all time
this old soul lives all lives
this old soul laughs and cries
this old soul never dies

fountain of youth fills my veins
storms of passion thunder and rain
hear the scream destiny
turn the page it will be
another scene another glory
another word another story
you must survive the next time
take your place in mankind

this old soul descends all time
this old soul lives all lives
this old soul laughs and cries
this old soul never dies never dies…

turn around look behind
danger has crossed the line
broken dreams line the streets
betrayal and hurtful deceit
another war causality
another dream reality
I don’t know why I wear these shoes
So many choices I never choose

this old soul descends all time
this old soul lives all lives
this old soul laughs and cries
this old soul never dies, never dies...

anything is possible
nothing that you can’t do
I live these words everyday
it takes me right to you

peaceland, peaceland, my life's in harmony
peaceland, peaceland, it’s home to me

I got lucky for a reason
I didn’t understand
guess I can count my blessing
being dealt this hand

many people struggling
just to stay alive
you must return what’s
and keep it all in stride

peaceland, peaceland, my life's in harmony
peaceland, peaceland, it’s home to me

battlelines are drawn no place to go
machines of the night will break your soul

I speak my mind that’s my crime
I’m a prisoner
I stand alone statue of stone
I’m a prisoner I’m a prisoner

tention in the air fire in the street
nothing in the papers just old repeats

I’m a prisoner I’m a prisoner

It’s not too late to say
If the world would go away
What is left for me to say

girl you did a lot for me, I did a lot for you
when I was falling down you pulled me through
I held your hand when you were blue
girl you did a lot for me, I did a lot for you

it’s been sometime these questions in my mind
will never be spoken
so lost inside sometimes you never find
what your looking for
I told myself a thousand times
Just one thing comes to mind

girl you did a lot for me, I did a lot for you
when you were was falling down I pulled you through
you held my hand when I was blue
girl you did a lot for me, I did a lot for you

now here we are I’m looking at the stars
I know you feel the same
this life is strange I’ll never feel the same
one time we had it all
as I lay down in my bed
just one thing must be said

girl you did a lot for me, I did a lot for you
when I was falling down you pulled me through
I held your hand when you were blue
girl you did a lot for me, I did a lot for you, a lot for you

 

 
Twenty-Three
(STEELE)
back up

love is a wonderful thing
it makes you feel alive
who knows what tomorrow may bring
then she caught my eye
oh it was chemistry
oh when she looked at me

Twenty-three I get weak in the knees
from this love sent from above
she’s my twenty-three so heavenly
she’s my angle

feels like I’m in a dream
it’s my fantasy
sometime I can’t believe
she’s lying next to me
oh then she looks at me
oh electricity

Twenty-three I get weak in the knees
from this love sent from above
she’s my twenty-three so heavenly
she’s my angle

from coast to coast, north to south
nobody comes close
she’s the girl in my world
I just wanna shout
Oh she’s whispering
Oh she’s killing

Twenty-three I get weak in the knees
from this love sent from above
she’s my twenty-three so heavenly
she’s my angle

 

 
I Like The Way
(STEELE)
back up

the daily grind all the time
messes with my mind
wasted years financial fears
turn a decent man to bad
you bring a smile with a style
with every step you take

I like the way you walk away
I like the way you walk away
That’s the reason why I say
I like the way you walk away

these strange times we stay inside
all across the land
broken schools teachers cruel
and children pay the price
so don’t you talk you just walk
and bring me to my knees

I like the way you walk away
I like the way you walk away
That’s the reason why I say
I like the way you walk away

sex and god corporate fraud
people sleeping in the streets
where can you go to mexico
but there’s nowhere to hide
rain or shine you’re so kind
you make time stand still

I like the way you walk away
I like the way you walk away
That’s the reason why I say
I like the way you walk away

 

 
This Town
(STEELE)
back up

your gonna like this town
it got a deli and a Laundromat
you gotta walk around
see all the shops and the restaurants
a lotta of pretty girls
walking down the street by the park
it’s a small town world
everybody knows everybody’s business

in this town this town
your nobody till you cross the line
in this town this town
all you lost you’ll never find

it’s a pretty town
tanning salon and a meter maid
kinda like the cia
everyone walking around with everybody’s secrets
it’s a dirty job
you’ll always find someone who will do it
in the nick of time
you find out who your friends are

in this town this town
your nobody till you cross the line
in this town this town
what you lost you’ll never find
in this town this town
the secret words behind the door
in this town this town
fuel the fire forever more

oooh this town you need a lot of money
to get some honey downtown
rubbing elbows it’s a freak show

it’s the same old town
nothing going on most of the time
down in dreamland
lots of people talking saying lots of nothing
at the same time
all this nonsense is giving me a headache
it's time to take a ride
rev up the engine blowing down the highway

 

 
I Wear These Shoes
(STEELE)
back up

you walk with me in this world
only to find the missing girl
inside your mind, you see the face
of broken dreams, and empty space
where am I going, what is the reason

I wear these shoes, it’s who I am and
I’ll wear these shoes again

do you believe in magic
a leap of faith, so tragic
take my hand, do you feel
state of mind spin the wheel
where am I going, what is the reason

I wear these shoes, it’s who I am and
I’ll wear these shoes again

you feel so trapped, everyday
into thin air you fade away
then all at once, you see yourself
a hopeful look, a cry for help
where am I going, what is the reason

I wear these shoes, it’s who I am and
I’ll wear these shoes again

 

 
Dead Alive
(STEELE)
back up

this life is tearing up at me
again I hear a desperate plea
on the front door on this cold grey day
it’s true it’s coming right at me
each time it gets hard to see
this devastation right before my eyes

it don’t go away when I close my eyes
inside my mind I’m dead alive
in this world that few survive
inside my mind I’m dead alive
it don’t go away when I close my eyes
I’m dead alive dead alive

bad luck has been a history
lately only a fool would be
in my corner sitting by my side
how much does it take to kill
how long till you had your fill
there’s no choices it’s needs wants and desire

no it don’t go away when I close my eyes
inside my mind I’m dead alive
in this world that few survive
inside my mind I’m dead alive
it don’t go away when I close my eyes
inside my mind I’m dead alive
in this world that few survive
I’m dead alive dead alive

daylight for the eye to see
midnight for you and me
feel the darkness all around yourself
who knows what will come to be
control your own destiny
you get one chance now do the best you can

no it don’t go away when I close my eyes
inside my mind I’m dead alive
in this world that few survive
inside my mind I’m dead alive
it don’t go away when I close my eyes
inside my mind I’m dead alive
in this world that few survive
I’m dead alive dead alive dead alive

 

 
Every Liar's Bluesm m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m
(STEELE)
back up

some people don’t like reality
they rather talk some tall story
it’s not the way ma ma said
god knows what’s in your head

they don’t stand up and look you in the eye
they crawl and weep and keep a low profile
but they’re in so deep most of the time
you choose every lair’s blues

when truth and lies become the same
and nobody ever takes the blame
your talk is cheep it ain’t worth a dime
you don’t live you just waste time

they don’t stand up and look you in the eye
they crawl and weep and keep a low profile
but they’re in so deep most of the time
you choose every lair’s blues

girls lie to help someone
boys lie just for fun

they don’t stand up and look you in the eye
they crawl and weep and keep a low profile
but they’re in so deep most of the time
you choose every lair’s blues
you choose every lair’s blues
come and choose every lair’s blues

 

 
Take It Back
(STEELE)
back up

come and see the best of me is here
feast your eyes and come inside my dear
take my hand and feel my pain it’s real
now come along and forget how you feel

you got to take it back I don’t want it no more
you got to take it back I don’t want it

take the time and let it shine again
you must believe in yourself my friend
in the mirror you don’t like what you see
you need to change a thing or two for me

you got to take it back I don’t want it no more
you got to take it back I don’t want it

open your eyes and look at what’s around you
what do you see what do you feel at all
all you childhood memories seem dream like
but you can’t go back you can’t look back at all

thoughts collide spin around your head
deep inside all you see is red
all is still it’s getting hard to breathe
the tention builds and laughter turns to tears

you got to take it back I don’t want it no more
you got to take it back I don’t want it

 

 
Dream
(STEELE)
back up

remember the stars recital
dancing across the sky
you hold the hand of a child
innocent and wild

memories quickly show
a forgotten time
you see yourself running fast
looking for all you can’t find
but I know where I can talk to you
where everything is fine

dream like dream like with you
dream like dream like with you

I think about our midnight talks
the time was all our own
thrift shops and fancy cars
who ever made the call

Anytime the notion comes
I know what to do
I learn to choose my battles
I win and loose some too
but I know where I can talk to you
where everything is fine

dream like dream like with you
dream like dream like with you

it’s like a slice of heaven
with a bitter sweet taste
with our fire and passion
I feel your warm embrace
but I know where I can talk to you
where everything is fine

dream like dream like with you
dream like dream like with you
dream like dream like with you

 

 

 

Demolition
 

Big Pie
(STEELE / MARKSBURY)


back up

in this world with so much pain
I can’t go on no more
close my eyes in this shame
and tumble to the floor
some people need more and more
it never seems to be enough
they fill their lives with expensive things
it’s just all stuff

all I ever wanted was to get a slice of
big pie big pie

give what I want I can’t wait
give it to me right now
fill my pockets to the top
raise my eyebrow
you can’t take it with you when you go
can you pass the test
I don’t need it I don’t want it
I need a whole lot less

all I ever wanted was to get a slice of
big pie big pie

you walk in circles you get nowhere
you’re fooling yourself
greed and lies rule the world
we need some help
why can’t we get along
and sit at the table
enough is enough can’t you see
you’re rocking the cradle

all I ever wanted was to get a slice of
big pie, big pie, big pie, big pie........
all I ever wanted was to get a slice

 

 
Done With You
(STEELE)
back up

one hand does the dirty work
as they look you in the eye
tell lies with all the perks
and laugh while you cry
string you along like a kite
keep you coming back for more
like a deer in your headlight
slice you down to the floor

I’m done with you your history
I’m done with you just memories

tell you things you need to hear
give you reason to feel real safe
make it all sound perfectly clear
then rub it right in your face
give you the big green light
stop you dead in your tracks
it’s written in the local headlines
it’s not too fare not much fact

I’m done with you your history
I’m done with you just memories

all the words covered with lies
I was caught off guard
after all our history
it’s just so dam hard
theirs not much left anyway
what can you do
the sun comes up another day
It’s not so different for you

I’m done with you your history
I’m done with you just memories

 

 
Black Cloud
(STEELE)
back up

I can’t stand up keep falling down
people in my face getting pushed around again
pushed around again
I bet my life and roll the dice
round the bend I find my next surprise
my next surprise

when I look up in the sky there’s a
black cloud over my head
black cloud in my head
black cloud over my head
black cloud black cloud

can’t believe what’s happen to me
in this world this world of madness, madness
black cat lair in this holy hell
witches brew in the air I’m under a spell
under a spell

when I look up in the sky there’s a
black cloud over my head
black cloud in my head
black cloud over my head
black cloud black cloud

One Night
(STEELE)
back up

not a day goes by I don’t think of you
and how your doing now
your locked inside me and I won’t let go
you know what we had
lonely days and sleepless nights
tossing in my bed
your in my dreams your in my life
instead of playing dead

one night one night with you
one night one night with you

remember when we laid in bed
and had a midnight snack
then I asked you girl what’s your name
and you smiled right back
you never know what you got
till it’s gone away
life’s painful lessons we try to learn
but you still get burned

one night one night with you
one night one night with you

what we had was something else
we lived like royalty
we loved hard, fought hard
passion with intensity
looking back it’s just a blur
from where I stand right now
isolated from your touch
someday somehow

one night one night with you
one night one night with you

 

 
Big Fat Liar
(STEELE)
back up

you live a world of fantasy
you know how to people please
in this town you think your king
all but less is all you bring

you talk the horse all the time
you have no conscience no spine
you think you play by the book
it’s time to take a good hard look

you’re a big fat liar,
ooh you’re a sleaze with a social disease
you’re a big fat liar
not too bright a verbal parasite

you ought to know when to shut up
it don’t take much to fill your cup
causing pain and misery
all your friends become your casualties

you play games with the rules
you call the shots to your fools
when you turn out that final light
how do you sleep at night

you’re a big fat liar,
ooh you’re a sleaze with a social disease
you’re a big fat liar
not too bright a verbal parasite

drama fills your daily life
your tongue is sharp like a knife
why did you throw it all away
that’s what all the people say

beware of life’s ups and downs
what goes around comes around
we must answer for ourselves
to get to heaven or to hell

you’re a big fat liar,
ooh you’re a sleaze with a social disease
you’re a big fat liar
not too bright a verbal parasite

 

 
Bridges Burning Down
(STEELE)
back up

it’s not always what appears to be
what you see before you
the naked eye can’t see the truth
it stays out of sight

who we are and what we do
shows us what we’re made of
some stand up and some fall down
others run for cover

there’s bridges burring down
at the point of no return
bridges burning down
smell the fire burn

the lines are drawn you choose your side
you’re ready for the fight
in the dark your scared and cold
you shiver in the night

the things I thought were good for me
is badly broken
I know you have something to say
but not a word is spoken

there’s bridges burring down
at the point of no return
bridges burning down
feel the fire burn

at this time there’s no turning back
everything’s been said
I have my faults and deep regrets
living in my bed

how we hurt the ones we love
I never understand
a blink of an eye we’ll all be gone
a very sad end

there’s bridges burring down
at the point of no return
bridges burning down
smell the fire burn

 

 
Now And Thenm m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m
(STEELE)
back up

many years I‘ve lived alone
living in a house a house of stone
my secret fortress underground
by the river at the edge of town

then this love embraced my heart
it shook me good from the start
I was scared and confused
all to gain and nothing left to loose

this is now and that was then
the road begins, the road ends
life’s surprises are just around the bend
this is now and that was then

all your choices come with a price
you take your chances many times
sad emotions fill your dreams
in a whirlpool somewhere down stream

this is now and that was then
the road begins, the road ends
life’s surprises are just around the bend
this is now and that was then

 

 
Lucky One
(STEELE)
back up

you walk the same streets with different shoes
looking like a winner you can’t lose
center of the local scene big pockets full of green
surrounded by security
with everything you’ll ever need

you are the lucky one
you are the lucky one

when you fall down you get right up
you look so good and act real tough
you’re so busy always on the go
but there’s a message don’t hold on let go

you are the lucky one
you are the lucky one

in the middle of it yourself can fit
not a single doubt it all just works out

you are the lucky one
you are the lucky one

 

 
Away From This World
(STEELE)
back up

in my room I’m all alone
not a sound no telephone
no vicious lies no small talk
my secret place where I hide

away from this world
away from this world this world
away from this world
away from this world this world

I play the star every night
I tell the truth in black and white
got no mind for local head games
bored to tears it’s time to go

away from this world
away from this world this world
away from this world
away from this world this world

I need a place to live my life
no excuse for social suicide
I live on the outside looking in
times wasting let’s begin

away from this world
away from this world this world
away from this world
away from this world this world

 

 
Deadbeat Girlfriend
(STEELE / LARGOMARSINO)
back up

my friends girlfriend treats him like a king
she thinks she knows the recipe to earn her that ring
but maybe baby you take a lesson or two
I like to get that kind of love out of you
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, gotta pay your dues
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I’m waiting on you

she comes by with an apple pie, and it’s homemade too
and I’m so lucky just to get a dunking’ donut from you
y ou’re reading martha stewart girl and the frugal gourmet
I hope you put that knowledge to use one of these days
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, don’t act so sublime
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you owe me big time
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you gotta pay your dues
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I’m waiting on you

so come on over now, I ain’t asking for much
just spruce up the trailer, it sure could use a woman's touch
hand me the chicken, crack me a beer
whip me up a tasty snack, then get your butt right back here
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you think your cool
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I ain’t nobody's fool
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, you gotta pay your dues
you’re a deadbeat girlfriend, I’m waiting on you

 
Rap Sucks
(STEELE / MARKSBURY)
back up

rap sucks it’s a bunch of crap
I think I’m caught in a trap, too-loud bass is breaking my windows
where did deep purple go that was really rock and roll

rap sucks it’s nothing much original
it’s predictable it makes me ill
rap sucks I need music with a melody
call me whatever you want but give me fab 4 harmony

rap sucks ripping off originality
stealing riffs, reciting poetry
rap sucks they say that it’s here to stay
when did mtv stop playing music anyway

rap sucks it’s sucks big time
big beats and nursery rhymes
rap sucks I can’t wait ‘til it’s gone
I want ac/dc could shake me all night long

rap sucks yo, yo, yo, It’s not white or black
It’s just a matter of fact
rap sucks a matter of my opinion and I think I’m right
I wish kiss could keep rockin’ and rollin’ all night

rap sucks a heart and soul it lacks
maybe it’ll go the way of 8 tracks
rap sucks put it up on there on the same shelf
I just wanna hear jimmy page playin’ by himself

rap sucks but there’s something I like about ice t
I’ll bet the cops don’t feel like me
rap sucks and the message that it sends
I wish alice cooper could be eighteen again

rap sucks eminem’s makin’ a bunch of nasty noise
brooklyn can keep the beastie boys
rap sucks why did aerosmith walk that way
why couldn’t puffy have gone down instead of steve ray

rap sucks maybe I’m getting too old
this crap is taking it’s toll
rap sucks rappers never fear the reaper
I wish the city was on flame.....with rock and roll

I want a slice of humble pie
why did jimi have to die
rap sucks. I kind of like cypress hill
they can rock like a mother when they rock they kill

I want the cream of the rock crop
hangin’ out with felix on a mountain top
rap sucks gimme’ sunshine of your love or mississippi queen
rap sucks if you know what I mean

rap sucks I can’t get no satisfaction
annoying rhythmic reaction
rap sucks and it isn’t even good
it sucks when it blasting through the trees in my neighborhood

and it’ll suck ten years later
rap sucks ten years after played greater
alvin lee never played “I’m goin’ homie”
I can’t believe it when they’re on t.v. handing out the grammys

melt in my mouth, not in my hands
rap sucks but I’ll never miss the plastic ono band
bad attitude, jogging suits, lyrics you can’t understand
we want the funk that's grand

rap sucks disco sucked in the 70’s
a new millennium rap’s sucking even more than k c
stick it up there with the ymca
I miss jethro tull and the songs they used to play

rap sucks sitting on a park bench someone’s killing me with a boom box
I want to hear the world rockin’ with zz top
taking a magic carpet ride where there aren’t any rappers
play me something off hot rats by frank zappa

rap sucks It’s all about the big sell
I just want to know that rock and roll is still alive and well
east and west coast from here to katmandu
never heard any rap come close to rock & roll hootchie koo

I hope it fades away rap sucks
tell me johnny’s being good and rock and roll is here to stay
I can’t imagine living in any kind of world with out it
that’s a life not worth living so everybody shout it, rap sucks !

where did deep purple go that was really rock and roll
where did deep purple go that was really rock and roll
