KITTY

I work in the morning, I work in the night.
The men on the block, they just laugh at me.
I work in the morning, I work in the night.
The men on the block, they just laugh at me.
But when they're wiping their silver spoons
pawning the men for some bread.
I'll be laughing, way, way out of my head!
When my little kitty gets out,
there's gonna be a party, a party no doubt.
When my little kitty gets out,
there's gonna be a party.
And if my mind isn't coming so fast.
The men on the block say I'm on the brink.
And if my mind isn't coming so fast.
And I ain't so dumb as some people think.
Cause when they're wiping their silver spoon
pawning the men for some bread.
I'll be laughing, way, way out of my head!

I'M SO SLEEPY

I'm so sleepy, yeah.
I'm so sleepy, yeah.
I could lay my head on a piece of lead
and imagine it was a springy bed,
'cause I'm sleepy, sleepy.
Soon I'm gonna slip away.
In the night I feel it
creeping, creeping, creeping.
 
I'm so sleepy, yeah.
I'm so sleepy, yeah.
I could lay my head on a piece of lead
and imagine it was a springy bed,
'cause I'm sleepy, sleepy.
I can't keep my mind away from my dreams.
I hear them calling,calling, calling.
Soon I'm gonna slip away.
Soon I'm gonna slip away.
Soon I'm gonna slip away.
In the night I'm gonna slip away.
I wont fight it, I'll just ride it.
 
I'm so sleepy, yeah.
I'm so sleepy, yeah.
I could lay my head on a piece of lead
and imagine it was a springy bed,
'cause I'm sleepy, sleepy.

NORTHERN WIND

There is a wind, my Billy,
and it's awful strong.
Come for you,
and anyone who's helped you along.
But I want to live, live, live
and let the stars shine bright.
Yes, I want to live, live, live
and let it ...alright.
And when that bird sings
from over that silver wall.
I don't want to fight it, Billy,
'cause I want to go.
There's a Northern wind, Billy,
blowing up a southern change.
And a Northern wind really
making me feel kind a strange.
There's a Northern wind, Billy,
blowing up a southern change
And a Northern wind really
making me feel kind a strange.
And with this gun goes everything
I want to say.
Not for you,
but for anyone who takes it away.
Let it fill his life, life, life
until there's nothing left.
Let it kill his wife, wife, wife
until he goes to bed.
And when that bird sings
from over that silver wall.
I don't want to fight it, Billy,
'cause I want to go.
There's a Northern wind, Billy,
blowing up a southern change.
And a Northern wind really
making me feel kind a strange.
There's a Northern wind, Billy,
blowing up a southern change.
And a Northern wind really
making me feel kind a strange.

THE LAUGHING APPLE

Slowly let me tell you a story of
a tree an apple tree once in a
summertime garden lived a little
apple tree and the man who owned
it wanted it to be picked so he
sent forth to hire me well
I've travelled the mountains and
I've travelled the sea but a
never in my travelling days have I
ever seen a little apple smile at me
laugh, oh laugh a little apple (???)
and you better be careful,
or it will bring you down if it
ever sees you wearing a frown so
laugh, a laugh a little apple
well all the apples were hiding
frightening that they might be plucked
and every time that somebody passed
all except that one little apple ducked
well, I've travelled the mountains and
I've travelled the sea but a
never in my travelling days have I
ever seen a little apple smile at me
laugh, oh laugh a little apple (???)
and you better be careful,
or it will bring you down if it
ever sees you wearing a frown so
laugh, a laugh a little apple

SMASH YOUR HEART

You cut me deep,
but now I'm gonna see you weep, yeah
this broken man is gonna do the best he can, yeah
I'll see you pay,
before I give you my heart
baby I'll do without there'll come a day
when I'll smash your heart and then turn away
you played with me like a toy and a little baby
after I broke you just didn't want to know, yeah
I'll see you pay, before I give you my heart
baby I'll do without there'll come a day
when I'll smash your heart and then turn away
my time will come,
and you'll know when it's begun, yeah
you'll know
because you're gonna be just where I was, yeah
I'll see you pay, before I give you my heart
baby I'll do without there'll come a day
when I'll smash your heart and then turn away

MOONSTONE

Well,
first I have to tell you that I'm not insane
and that once I was a famous archaeologist named
in a recent expedition in a distant land
I just happened to passing my hand in the sand
and then I stopped, looked, and then I was hooked
I saw a flash, then a sparkle from a moonstone
then the mist started, started to clear
I saw a face, a face in the moonstone
then it started to disappear
 
Well,
I walked and walked and never talked for many days
and without a friend the desert is a lonely place
I was just about to turn around and make way home
when something told me that I had to see it again
 
a vu ray

THE FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST

I would have given you all of my heart.
But there's someone who's torn it apart.
And she's taking almost all that I've got.
But if you want, I'll try to love again.
Baby I'll try to love again but I know.
 
The first cut is the deepest, baby I know.
The first cut is the deepest,
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed.
When it comes to loving me she's worst.
But when it comes to being loved, she's first.
That's how I know.
The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest.
 
I still want you by my side.
Just to help me dry the tears that I've cried.
Cause I'm sure gonna give you a try.
And if you want, I'll try to love again.
But baby, I'll try to love again, but I know.
 
The first cut is the deepest, baby I know.
The first cut is the deepest,
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed.
When it comes to loving me she's worst.
But when it comes to being loved, she's first.
That's how I know.
The first cut is the deepest, baby I know.
The first cut is the deepest.

I'M GONNA BE KING

I've been pushed around
made to look a clown
but now, now I know
it is time for me to start to grow
I'm gonna be king
I'm gonna see things arrive
I'm gonna be king
and you will be my bride
I'll show everyone
that my time will come
if you wait for me
I will show the world what I can be
I'm gonna be king
I'm gonna see things arrive
I'm gonna be king
and you will be my bride
love does funny things
and to me it brings
strength to carry through
and to make my name a pride to use
I'm gonna be king
I'm gonna see things arrive
I'm gonna be king
and you will be my bride

CEYLON CITY

I'm going home to the town where I was born
where little children laughed as they sang
a happy song in the little town of Ceylon,
Ceylon City, Ceylon City
 
I've got a boat, I hope it's still afloat
with rusty sails, and an old wooden oar
it goes along, in the little town of Ceylon
Ceylon City, Ceylon City
 
My daddy will be waiting there
my sister will be combing down her silver hair
my momma will be waiting there
serving lunch to my brother, but he's nowhere
Ceylon City, Ceylon City

BLACKNESS OF THE NIGHT

In the blackness of the night
I seem to wander endlessly
with a hope burning out deep inside
I'm a fugitive, community has driven me out
for this bad, bad world, I'm beginning to doubt
I'm alone, and there is no one by my side
 
In the blackness of the night
I see a shadow passing by
from the heels of an old soldier boy
there's no compromising
and his eyes are black as the sky
for this bad, bad world he is going to die
he's alone and there is no one by his side
 
In the blackness of the night
I see a sparkle of a star
from the sweet silver tear of a child
and she's clutching at a photograph
of long, long ago
when her parents were happy she was
too young to know
she's alone and there is no one by her side
I'm alone and there is no one by my side
 
In the blackness of the night
I seem to wander endlessly
with a hope burning out deep inside
I'm a fugitive, community has driven me out
for this bad, bad world, I'm beginning to doubt
I'm alone, and there is no one by my side

COME ON BABY

Why don't you come over?
it's lonely at the wooden lodge
why don't you come and see our baby
you haven't seen her for so long
 
Come on baby, shift that log
come on baby, wash that dog
give me all the love you've got,
to me
Come on baby, shift that log
come on baby, wash that dog
give me all the love you've got,
to me
there in the back woods
 
We had our little piece of land
but everything wasn't so groovy
not when you had to dirty your hands
 
Come on baby, shift that log
come on baby, wash that dog
give me all the love you've got,
to me
Come on baby, shift that log
come on baby, wash that dog
give me all the love you've got,
to me
 
It's lonely at the wooden lodge
so why don't you share my bed
 
Come on baby, shift that log
come on baby, wash that dog
give me all the love you've got,
to me
Come on baby, shift that log
come on baby, wash that dog
give me all the love you've got, 
to me

I LOVE THEM ALL

While looking into my draw only yesterday
you know, the things that I saw made me cry
I saw the pictures and letters,
I should have known better and to try to deny
 
I love them all, I love them all
and if they came again I'd do the same again
'cause I'm that kind of a guy
 
And as I walked through the park
where we used to play
you know the bench and the tree
are still there
and the pictures that you did,
why am I so stupid?
they won't ever disappear
 
I love them all, I love them all
and if they came again I'd do the same again
'cause I'm that kind of a guy

IMAGE OF HELL

You left me wearing nothing but a shell
You left me wearing nothing but a shell
This feeling you've left me,
is the image of hell
 
I thought that you loved me
ah, but then I never could tell
I thought that you loved me
but then I never could tell
This feeling you left me,
is the image of hell
 
If you loved me like you said that you did
oh, then darling you couldn't have done
the things that you did
you walk by my door, but you don't ring my bell
you walk by my door, but you don't ring my bell
This feeling you've left me,
is the image of hell

LOVELY CITY

Lovely city, when do you laugh?
Stoney people, what do you have?
Well, you ride around on a bright shiny cloud
and you think that you've found true happiness
There's no method in your mind
and your tempers are kind
Is it too much to ask to give it a rest?
 
Lovely city, when do you laugh?
Stoney people, what do you have?
I'm a part of you , you don't wanna be
I'm an unexpected visitor who's dropped in for tea
But I'm not so low you don't even know that I'm here
you can't even see
 
Lovely city, when do you laugh?
Stoney people, what do you have?

THE VIEW FROM THE TOP

The view from the top
can be also very lonely
and you can be missing such a lot
that could be yours
 
Why can't I stop forgetting myself?
why am I always trying
to be like somebody else
why can't I love you?
why bother flying high above you
I know where you are
 
The view from the top
can be also very lonely
and you can be missing such a lot
that could be yours
and who's going to miss me?
 
There'll only be myself to blame
you know I'd love to hold you tight
and love you all the night
but I don't even know ...my name
la la la la la
 
Why can't I stop forgetting myself?
why am I always trying
to be like somebody else?
why can't I love you?
why bother flying high above you
I know where you are

and you can be missing such a lot

HERE COMES MY WIFE

Well here comes my wife
and that's the story of my life
she haunts me, though she don't want me
she follows badly in disguise
but it's not hard to recognize her,
'cause she's crying
she looks like dying
on me
 
Her father's rich, I think a millionaire
but money doesn't make him better
it just makes him better to be there,
so you can tell him that its quite alright
no no, it's quite alright with me
 
Well here comes my wife
and that's the story of my life
she haunts me, though she don't want me
she follows badly in disguise
but it's not hard to recognize her,
'cause she's crying
she looks like dying
on me
 
See that shadow dancing on the floor
she is coming up behind me
how I'd love to tell her she's a bore,
but I tell her that it's quite alright,
no no, it's quite alright with me
 
Well here comes my wife

IT'S A SUPER (du pa) LIFE

See the funny little people running 'round
in circles sowing bombs as they do
see the funny side of it
they're heading straight for you
see the funny little holes they're making
looking like craters on the moon
see the funny side of it
we'll be living in them soon
 
But it's a super life,
a super du pa du pa life we live
yes it's a super life,
a super du pa du pa life we live
but it's getting pretty near the end
'cause with a super life you win
and borrow everything you lend
so there's never anything to spend
you're broke, you dope you
 
See the funny little flying saucers
we found painted up just for you
see the funny man inside,
his colour matches too
see the funny little camera he loves
shooting pictures with all day
see the funny side of it
his friends are on their way
 
But it's a super life,
a super du pa du pa life we live
yes it's a super life,
a super du pa du pa life we live
but it's getting pretty near the end

WHERE ARE YOU

I know I think a lot
But somehow it just doesn't help
It only makes it worse
The more I think
The more I know
The more it hurts
With only solitude
to meet me like a friend
Oh, where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
 
Maybe she sits alone
Beyond the storm across
the raging torrent of the sea
She knows I want her
and she knows I'll always be
How can I live without
the love I cannot see
Oh where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
 
I know there's someone there
I hear her breathe
Behind the silence of the dark
But I know that I want see
'til we open up our eyes together
She'll look at me
what a moment that moment will be
And she looks so light
I could fly her through the night
 
I know I think a lot
But somehow it just doesn't help
It only goes to show
That what you never miss
you never know
But I have loved you
from the moment that we knew
Oh, I love you,
I love you,
but where are you?

A BAD NIGHT

Ah, baby, you're cool
And even though you've never been to school
I know you're fine but then you change your mind
Then you start on drifting and fall on behind
You've been mine all of the time
 
A bad night it's gonna be.
A bad night I guarantee
Tonight I'll have
A bad night I know I shall.
 
Ah, 'cause you left me waiting in the corner
And I know you're never gonna come back for me
And though you said you loved me
And said you needed all of my love
A bad, bad, bad, bad, bad night its gonna be
 
A bad night it's gonna be
A bad night I guarantee
Tonight I'll have
A bad night I know I shall
 
Maybe if the weather was just a little better
it might not have happened that way
And the situation was getting pretty bad
A bad, bad, bad, bad, bad night its gonna be
 
A bad night it's gonna be
A bad night I guarantee
Tonight I'll have
A bad night I know I shall
I know I shall
