2. Havana Affair

pt-boat on the way to havana
i used to make a living, man
pickin' the banana
now I'm a guide for the cia
hooray for the usa!

baby, baby, make me loco
baby, baby, make me mambo

sent to spy on a cuban talent show
first stop- havana au go-go
i used to make a living, man
pickin' the banana
hooray for havana!

3. Poisen Heart

no one ever thought this one would survive
helpless child, gonna walk a drum beat behind
lock you in a dream, never let you go
never let you laugh or smile, not you

i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart
i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart

making friends with a homeless torn up man
he just kind of smiles, it really shakes me up
there's danger on every corner but I'm okay
walking down the street trying to forget yesterday

you know that life really takes its toll
and a poet's gut reaction is to search his very soul
so much damn confusion before my eyes
but nothing seems to phase me and this one still survives

4. Chainsaw

oh, oh, oh
sitting here with nothin' to do
sitting here thinkin' only of you
but you'll never get out of there
she'll never get out of there

texas chain saw massacre
they took my baby away from me
but she'll never get out of there
she'll never get out of there
i don't care, wohoho

when I saw her on the corner
she told me told me told me told me
she wouldn't go far
ooh, now I know I'm so much in love
'cause she's the only girl that I'm ever thinking of

5. She's A Sensation

she's a sensation
she's a sensation
she looks a so sweet

she's a sensation
she's a sensation
good enough a to eat

she's a sensation
oh-oh-oh
she looks a so fine
she's a sensation
she's a sensation
i'm gonna make a her mine

no matter what you do
i give my heart to you
and oh-oh - baby
i will give to you
no matter what they say
yeah, we can find a way
and oh-oh - baby
we can find a way

i didn't know it
till i walked you home
that, i feel the way i do
and i don't care
what the neighbors say
i always will be true
i always will love you
love you
a-wo-wo-wo-wo

6. I Believe In Miracles

i used to be on an endless run
believe in miracles 'cause i'm one
i have been blessed with the power to survive
after all these years i'm still alive
i'm out here kickin' with the band
i am no longer a solitary man
every day my time runs out
lived like a fool, that's what i was about

oh, i believe in miracles
i believe in a better world for me and you
oh, i believe in miracles
i believe in a better world for me and you

tattooed your name on my arm
i always said my girl's my good-luck charm
if she can find a reason to forgive
then i can find a reason to live
i used to be on an endless run
believe in miracles 'cause i'm one
i have been blessed with the power to survive
after all these years i'm still alive

i close my eyes and think how it might be
the future's here today, it's not too late
it's not too late, oh-oh

alright

7. Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment

peace and love is here to stay
and now i can wake up and face the day
happy happy happy all the time

9. Today Your Love, Tomorrow The World

12. Pet Cemetary

under the arc of a weather stain boards
ancient goblins, and warlords
come out of the ground, not making a sound
the smell of death is all around
and the night when the cold wind blows
no one cares, nobody knows

i don't want to be buried in a pet sematary
i don't want to live my life again
i don't want to be buried in a pet sematary
i don't want to live my life again

follow victor to the sacred place
this ain't a dream, i can't escape
molars and fangs, the clicking of bones
spirits moaning among the tombstones
and the night, when the moon is bright
someone cries, something ain't right

the moon is full, the air is still
all of a sudden i feel a chill
victor is grinning, flesh rotting away
skeletons dance, i curse this day
and the night when the wolves cry out
listen close and you can hear me shout

i don't want to be buried in a pet sematary
i don't want to live my life again
i don't want to be buried in a pet sematary
i don't want to live my life again, oh no, oh no
i don't want to live my life again, oh no, oh oh
i don't want to live my life again, oh no no no
i don't want to live my life again, oh oh

13. Bonzo Goes To Bitburg

you got to pick up the pieces
come on, sort your trash
better pull yourself back together
maybe you've got too much cash
better call, call the law
when you gonna turn yourself in, yeah
you're a politician
don't become one of hitler's children

bonzo goes to bitburg
then goes out for a cup of tea
as i watched it on tv
somehow it really bothered me
drank in all the bars in town
for an extended foreign policy
pick up the pieces

my brain is hanging upside down
i need something to slow me down
ooh yeah, my brain is hanging upside down
and i need something to slow me down

shouldn't wish you happiness
wish her the very best
fifty thousand dollar dress
shaking hands with your highness
see through you like cellophane
you watch the world complain
but you do it anyway
who am i, am i to say

if there's one thing that makes me sick
it's when someone tries to hide behind politics
i wish that time could go by fast
somehow they manage to make it last

14. Now I Wanna Be A Good Boy

now i wanna be a good boy
i don't wanna be bad
now i wanna run away from home
now i wanna be on my own

i just wanna be a good boy
i don't wanna be bad
now i wanna be sad alone
now i wanna be all alone
now i wanna be on my own

15. Why Is It Always This Way?

hey hey hey
why is it always this way?

last time i saw her alive
she was wavin', wavin' bye bye
she was contemplating suicide
now she's lying
in a bottle of formaldehyde

and oh, i just don't know
why i can't let her go
oh i just don't know

hey hey hey
why is it always this way?
last time i saw her alive
she was going to the wash and dry
she was outside hitchin' a ride
now she's lying
in a bottle of formaldehyde

16. I Remember You

i remember you

i remember lying awake at night
and thinking just of you
but things don't last forever
and somehow baby
they never really do

Back To The Top
17. Strength To Endure

walking through the cross fire heart
feeling heavy and hopeless
wonderin' how i ever will
see through this darkness
every drop of blood
can be so beautiful
and i sure was bleedin'
the drops by the bucketful

i have the strength to endure
and all the love so pure
i have the strength to endure
because... because...

i'm not afraid to tell her
just how things work
ride a hurricane through the fast lane
always looking over my shoulder

she said, "there's something about you
and neon lights always glow hot
baby we can see this through
just give me all the strength you've got"

18. I Don't Wanna Go Down To The Basement

hey, daddy-o

hey, Romeo

i don't wanna go down to the basement
