Strange Little Girls

New Age

Waiting for the phone to ring
Diamond necklace on my shoulder
Waiting for the phone to ring
Lipstick on my naked shoulder

It seems to be my fancy
Franky and Sue Ann when

Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love

I'll come running to you
Hey baby-if-you-want-me
I-I-I-I
I'll come running
To you now
Baby-if-you-want-me
I-I-I-I

Looking at my hands today
Look to me that they're
Made of ivory
I had a funny call today
Someone died
And someone's married
You know that it's my fancy
To make it with
Franky and Nancy

Over the bridge they go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
I'll come running to you now
Baby if you want me
I-I-I-I
I'll come running to you
Baby if you want me
I-I-I-I
I'll come running to you now
Baby if you want me
I-I-I-I
I'll come running to you
Baby if you want me

And something's got a hold on me
It's the beginning of the New Age
Ohh-ohh-ohh it was
It's the beginning of the New Age
Can't you save time for yourself
Yes, it's the beginning of the New Age
Oh you little sick little fox yes
It's the beginning of the New Age

Time

Well, the smart money's on Harlow
And the moon is in the street
The shadow boys are breaking all the laws
And you're east of East St. Louis
And the wind is making speeches
And the rain sounds like a round of applause

And Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon
His invisible fiance is in the mirror
The band is going home
It's raining hammers, it's raining nails
Yes, it's true, there's nothing left for him down here

And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
That you love
And it's Time Time Time

Well they all pretend they're Orphans
And their memory's like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can't remember
Tell the things you can't forget that
History puts a saint in every dream
Well she said she'd stick around
Until the bandages came off
But these mama boys just don't know when to quit
And Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams
Or are those prayers
So close your eyes, son
this won't hurt a bit

And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
That you love
And it's Time Time Time

Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars
And splash into the streets
And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor
From her boot and a thousand
Pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window
And a kiss upon his lips
As the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay the fiddler off till I come back again

And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
That you love
And it's Time Time Time
It's time time time
and it's time time time
and it's time time time
that you love
and it's time time

'97 Bonnie and Clyde

Baby your da-da loves you
And I'm always gonna be here for you
No matter what happened
You're all I got in this world
I'd never give you up for nothin'
Nobody in this world is ever gonna keep you from me
I love you

C'mon Hai-Hai, we goin to the beach
Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat
Where's mama? She's takin a little nap in the trunk
Oh that smell da-da musta runned over a skunk

Now I know what you're thinkin - it's kind of late to go swimmin
But you know your mama, she's one of those type of women
That do crazy things, and if she don't get her way, she'll throw a fit
Don't play with da-da's toy knife, honey, let go of it
And don't look so upset, why you actin bashful?
Don't you wanna help da-da build a sand castle?

And mama said she wants to show you how far she can float
Don't worry about that little boo-boo on her throat
It's just a little scratch - it don't hurt
her was eatin dinner while you were sweepin
and spilled ketchup on her shirt
Mama's messy isn't she? We'll let her wash off in the water
Me and you can pway by ourselves, can't we?

Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us

See honey there's a place called heaven and a place called hell
There's a place called prison and a place called jail
And da-da's probably on his way to all of em except one
Cause mama's got a new husband and a stepson
And you don't want a brother do ya?
Maybe when you're old enough to understand a little better
I'll explain it to ya
But for now we'll just say mama was real real bad
She was bein mean to dad and made him real real mad
But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out
Sit back in your chair honey, quit tryin to climb out
I told you it's okay HaiHai wanna ba-ba
take a night-night? Nan-a-boo, goo-goo ga-ga?
Her make goo-goo ca-ca? Da-da change your dia-dee
Clean the baby up so her can take a nighty-nighty
Your dad'll wake her up as soon as we get to the water
Ninety-seven Bonnie and Clyde, me and my daughter
Me and my daughter
Me and my daughter

Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us

Wake up sweepy head we're here
Before we pway we're gonna take mama for a wittle walk
along the pier
Baby, don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea
Mama's too sweepy to hear you screamin in her ear
That's why you can't get her to wake, but don't worry
Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake
Here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock?
We'll tie it to her footsie then we'll roll her off the dock
Ready now, here we go, on the count of free
One.. two.. free.. oh-weeeeeee
There goes mama, splashin in the water
No more fightin with dad, no more restraining order
No more step-da-da, no more brother
Blow her kisses bye bye, tell mommy you love her
Now we'll go play in the sand, build a castle and junk
But first, just help dad with two more things out the trunk

Just the two of us

Heart of Gold

I want to live
I want to give
I want to live
I want to give
I've been a miner
For a heart of gold
It's these expressions
I never give

That keep me searching for a heart of gold
That keep me searching for a heart of gold

I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Redwood
I crossed an ocean
For a heart of gold
I've been in my mind
It's such a fine line

That keeps me searching
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold, I said

I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Redwood
I crossed an ocean
For a heart of gold

I've been in my mind
It's such a fine line
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
I said...I said...I said...
Searching
Oh, yeah
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
Keeps me keeps me
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold

Strange Little Girl

One day you see a strange little girl look at you
One day you see a strange little girl feeling blue
She'd run to the town one day
Leaving home and her country fair
Just beware
When you're there
Strange little girl

She didn't know how to live in a town that was rough
It didn't take long before she knew she'd had enough
Walking home in her wrapped up world
She survived but she's feeling old
'cause she found
All things cold

Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl, you
I really should, you
I really should be
Going

I know you are sure
I know you are sure
I know
I know you are sure

One day you see a strange little girl look at you
One day you see a strange little girl feeling blue
Walking home in her wrapped up world
She survived but she's feeling old
'cause she found
All things cold

Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl, you
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl, I
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
I
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should, you
I really should, be going

I Don't Like Mondays

The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody's gonna go to school today
She's gonna make them stay at home
And daddy doesn't understand it
He always said she was good as gold
And he can see no reason
'cause there are no reasons
What reasons do you need to be shown

Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I don't like
I don't like
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole the whole day down
Down down
Shoot it all down

And the playing's stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with her toys awhile
And school's out early and soon we'll be learning
That the lesson today is how to die
And then the bullhorn cackles
And the captain tackles
With the problems and the how's and why's
And he can see no reason
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to die
Die

Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I don't like
I don't like
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I don't like
I don't like
I don't like Mondays

I don't like Mondays
No
I want to shoot
The whole day down
Whole day
Whole day
The whole day down

Enjoy the Silence

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world

Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And unforgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world

Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm
Can only do harm

I'm Not in Love

I'm not in love, so don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because I call you up
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made

I'm not in love, no no, it's because
You said I like to see you, but then again
That doesn't mean you mean that much to me
So if I call you, don't make a fuss
Don't tell your friends about the two of us
I'm not in love, no no, it's because

I keep your picture upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain still lying there
It hides a nasty stain still lyring there
I keep your picture upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain still lying there
It hides a nasty stain still lyring there
So don't you ask me to give it back
I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me
I'm not in love, no no, it's because

Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me
Ooh, you'll wait a long time
Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me
Ooh, you'll wait a long time

I'm not in love, so don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because I call you up
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made

I'm not in love, I'm not in love

Raining Blood

Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
At Death I said she said
death will be their acquisition
The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall onto me, onto fall onto me
the sky's crimson tears
Abolish the rules abolish the rules made of stone
Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above
Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away
Raining blood
Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood

Rattlesnakes

Jodie wears a hat although it hasn't rained for six days
She says a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of those rattlesnakes
On account of those rattlesnakes

She looks like Eve Marie Saint
on the waterfront
She reads Simone de Beauvoir
in her American circumstance

She's less than sure if her heart has come to stay in San Jose
And her neverborn child haunts her now
As she speeds down the freeway
As she tries her luck with the traffic police
Out of boredom more than spite
She never finds no trouble, she tries too hard
She's oblivious despite herself
Hey

She looks like Eve Marie Saint
In on the waterfront, she says
All she needs is therapy
All you need is love, is all you need

Jodie never sleeps 'cause there are always needles in the hay - hay
She says a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of the rattlesnakes
Hey on account of the rattlesnakes

She looks like Eve Marie Saint
In on the waterfront
she reads Simone de Beauvoir
In her American circumstance
Her heart's like crazy paving
Upside down and back to front, she says
Ooh, it's so hard to love when
Love was your great disappointment
Account of those rattlesnakes
She says a girl needs a gun these days, hey
a girl needs a gun these days, hey
On account of the rattlesnakes
Hey on account of those rattlesnakes

Real Men

Take your mind back
I don't know when
Sometime when it always seemed to be just us and them
Girls that wore pink
And boys that wore blue
Boys that always grew up better men than me and you

What's a man now
What's a man mean
Is he rough or is he rugged
Cultural and clean
Now it's all changed It's got to change more
We think it's getting better but nobody's really sure

And so it goes go round again
But then again we wonder who the real men are

See the nice boys
Dancing in pairs
Golden earring golden tan
Blow-wave in the hair
Sure they're all straight Straight as a line
All the guys are macho
See their leather shine

You don't want to sound dumb
Don't want to offend
So don't call me a faggot not unless you are a friend
Then if you're tall
Handsome and strong
You can wear the uniform and I could play along

And so it goes go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are

Time to get scared
Time to change plan
Don't know how to treat a lady
Don't know how to be a man
Time to admit
What you call defeat
Cause there's women running past you now
and you just drag your feet

Man makes a gun
Man goes to war
Man can kill and man can drink and man can take a whore
Kill all the blacks
Kill all the reds
If there's war between the sexes then there'll be no people left

And so it goes go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
And so it goes go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
And so it goes go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
