BLUE LIGHT CITY

I knew a punk.
His name was Tommy Gun.
He was in love with Mrs. Margaret Davadon. Oh, where did he go after the rocksteady show?

Don’t walk out of the Blue Light City run, run, run. Don’t walk out of the Blue Light City run, run, run.

Mr. Davadon, he’s in a crazy way-
Staring down at that old leather bouquet.
Oh, where did she go after the rocksteady show?

Don’t walk out of the Blue Light City run, run, run. Don’t walk out of the Blue Light City run, run, run.

I am calling now
From a bed at McClain’s
I got a box of flowers; they say that I gotta feel the pain.
They say I’ll never know what happened at the rocksteady show.

Cause I was in the Blue Light City, they say run, run, run. Yes, I was in the Blue Light City, they say run, run, run

THE DREAD

Little Sally Walker goes walking down the street.
She didn’t have no shoes and she had too much to eat.

Johnny Russell Lightly promised money promised bread She didn’t want to call so she texted him instead.

Little Lilly Lou is a pretty fancy girl,
She writes for a major magazine and dresses like a pearl.

Johnny Russell Lightly he don’t have a lot of clout
Put his number on her hand and said I’d like to take you out.

But Little Sally Walker do your thing, do your thing. Little Lily Lou do your thing, do your thing
You might think he’d on a one-night fling,
But Johnny is in bed with THE DREAD.

Julie Maroon is wild but has some poise,
She buys all her books on Amazon, she like both girls and boys.

Johnny took her skinny-dipping in the month of June,
And now it’s almost August and she hopes he’ll call her soon.

But don’t get me wrong Johnny Lightly’s a good man, He just wants a relationship and cannot understand.

Why he finds a lady and Oh, he thinks she fine, But after a few dates he goes fishing back on line.

Oh Little Sally Walker do you thing, do your thing. Juliet Maroon do your thing, do your thing,
Don’t be waitin for a wedding ring,
But Johnny is in bed with THE DREAD.

So Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, I’m picking up my drool. Because I’ve been educated inside the golden rule.

I’m pushing right along and I will not wait around Just to blow a lot of dough to try to nail you down.

Little Sally Walker do your thing, do your thing
Little Lily Loo do you thing
You might think he’s on a one-night fling
But Johnny is in bed with THE DREAD, THE DREAD, THE DREAD

Die Pretty

They say he is a monster
Dear old Mr. Green
He’s locked in my bathroom
With a vacuum powered beauty machine

I’m going ugly for you
Just like you asked me to You can piss your night away But I’m gonna skin an animal

An animal, animal
An animal, animal
I’m gonna skin an animal

Mrs. Scarlett Darling
She never comes out
She watches trashy TV
But don’t move her
Cause she’ll scream and shout

I’m going ugly for you
Just like you asked me to You can piss your night away But I’m gonna skin an animal

An animal, animal
An animal, animal
I’m gonna skin an animal

Little brother bobby
He’s lost in a dream
You better blame his parents
Cause he only takes the sugar and cream

I’m going ugly for you
Just like you asked me to You can piss your night away But I’m gonna skin an animal

An animal, animal
An animal, animal
I’m gonna skin an animal

Raggedy Ann

Baby dolls and teddybears I told em all too soon

just can’t feed her own
Well they say that she lost her littlest one and she can’t call the other home.

Raggedy Raggedy Ann you can blow out your mind with the sound of your own voice

Good Friday

Tommy put down the phone, go fly free, light and starvation, and gonna love me.
Take your time, throw every stone, I’m gettin down to nothing so you can hit my bones.

I’ll take a knife to the hog if you want skin in the game. I’ll take my baby teeth and write your beautiful name.

Baby, one more night I swear I’ll surrender.
I just can’t help holding on
One more night I swear I’ll surrender
You can take him Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria. Come take him Gloria.

And it might be true for you but it’s not true for me
that the hardest part of letting go is that it’s easy
You said on easter day, you had gone to her
but I’m glad that you have risen but I’m still a desert wanderer.

I’ll take a nail to the cross redeem this passion play but I won’t tear my hair cause I’m still a lady

Baby, one more night I swear I’ll surrender.
I just can’t help holding on
One more night I swear I’ll surrender
You can take him Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria. Come take him Gloria.

Beware of the prophet with the shiney shoes Beware of anyone who needs to bleed for you.

Baby, one more night I swear I’ll surrender.
I just can’t help holding on
One more night I swear I’ll surrender
You can take him Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria. Come take him Gloria.

UNUSUAL GRACE

Carry my body to your room, lay over me like I was dying
Take an old rag and wash me free, of almost everything I think you’ve done to me

Take me out like you forgive, let’s joke around like I was born to live.
Lets pull out those mystery book my friends and lets pretend we’re young and dumb again.

Cause I want to be a stranger with you again I want to bow down like you’re a king again. Meet me with Unusual Grace.

Call my criminal a fraud, tell me the truth like you are good with god.
I don’t think I’m coming home tonight I’ll let the starts and moon make up for us tonight

Cause I want to be a stranger with you again I want to bow down like you’re a king again. Meet me with Unusual Grace.
