RIBBONS & BOWS

Ribbons & bows, ribbons & bows
My baby goes for ribbons & bows
My baby goes for ribbons & bows quicker than roses

How was your day? Oh that's just great
Now will you listen to me, dear?

As long as I bring home a box
that holds something expensive
for you it's immaterial that my anger is so extensive

Ribbons & bows, ribbons & bows
My baby goes for ribbons & bows quicker than roses

Presently your present sits so pleasantly alone
Wining when we're dining
will not make that gift your own
I know that you're adorable and my career is famous
You know we are wrapped up in something
that cannot contain us
You see I see that all you see in me
are gifts and paparazzi
But what you get is what I see
as something that will never stop me
thinking about ringing your stinking little neck
with some of those

Ribbons & bows, ribbons & bows
My baby goes for ribbons & bows
My baby goes for ribbons & bows quicker than roses
Ribbons & bows, ribbons & bows
My baby knows what money can buy
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-10 Assassinational
ASSASSINATIONAL

Up until now,
assassination has been TOP SECRET BUSINESS.
But with the new Assassinational credit card,
being an accomplice to murder
is only a phone call away!!!

Need some killing done? We'll take credit for it.
ASSASSINATIONAL
We issue a monthly statement.

Presidents, heads of state, figure heads, you dictate
Where and when, who you hate, then we eliminate.

Car bombs, letter bombs, let us bomb their hotel.
You select the type of kill, we guarantee to do it well.

Poison snakes, poison drinks,
dripping water on the head.
ASSASSINATIONAL
We'll insure that they are dead.
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-12 Once
ONCE

Oh, I'm the guy you'll only meet once in your life
I'm the guy you'll only meet once in your life
I'm the guy you'll only meet
I'm the guy you'll only meet
I'm the guy you'll only meet
You'll only meet me once

I opened the door for you at the place where you work
I sat next to you on our plane trip
I carried your bags at the hotel
I gave you the time of day

I'm the guy you'll only meet once in your life
I'm the guy you'll only meet once in your life
I'm the guy you'll only meet
I'm the guy you'll only meet
I'm the guy you'll only meet
You'll only meet me once

I'm the guy who checked you out
at the local meat market
I'm the guy who drove you home once,
for a small charge
I'm the guy who kissed you first

I'm the guy you dreamt about once in your life
One day I was responsible for all your children

I'm the guy you'll only meet once in your life
We'll only meet once
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-14 Summer Morning, I'm Due
SUMMER MORNING, I'M DUE

Conversation, we lit up
with the grass on our backs and minds
Between my spring and my fall
we turned and learned what we would find

Summer morning, I'm due and melted away
Summer morning, I'm due and melted away from you

My shoulders are colder, it'd be a breeze to leave
but all my falls are back to you,
your warmth meant much to me
Those feelings, they fade like my tan,
and like dew on top of green
those minutes which just dripped off the hour
will not last longer than how long they can be seen
on this

Summer morning, I'm due and melted away
Summer morning, I'm due to fall out of love with you
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-15 Dear So & So
DEAR SO & SO

You like to go on an ego excursion
First class diversion, no fare for me
Turbulence does help to pilot your brain plane
to see the brain pain fuming from me

Concede conceit, admit defeat
You wrote the note to Dear So & So,
Dear So & So and so on
Concede conceit, admit defeat
You wrote the note to Dear So & So

You mustn't think
"I'll let him know, he'll let me go.
The letter goes out tonight."
But you smudge your ink and continue to think
"He's way below me."
I'm on the brink so don't try to phone me, phoney.

We might just go on but you need coersion
from me, urgently, so you'll care for me.

Concede conceit, admit defeat
You wrote the note to Dear So & So
And so on and so on we might just go on
but you need coersion, first class
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-18 Blues In My Beer
BLUES IN MY BEER

Blues in my beer, red's in my eye
Dark in my thoughts, darken the sky
Blues in my beer

When we tied the knot,
not a minute could go on without her
It's been a very long alcoholic journey I've been on

We thought our marriage was stashed away
under the piles of powder and dust
But as I reflect and look down at myself,
I can now see what uncovered us

And now that my ship's come in,
I can't stop thinking about her
Blues in my beer, red's in my eye
Cash in my thoughts, embark on this life
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-20 Sleepless
SLEEPLESS

Sleepless, oh baby I'm sleepless
I can't count sheep when I cannot count on you
lying in the same bed
Sleepless, oh you keep me sleepless
Not a wink, not a drink at all

You worry about me so much
that I make you move in your sleep
enough to give me motion sickness
Still somehow I'm able to keep you
and you keep me too, sleepless

I owe you girl for caring a lot,
but I'm gonna sleep in a cot
Sleeping with you in the same bed is going to my head
You're stirring in bed and stirring my head over you
and all the things you're dreaming, sleepless

Oh honey the sun is out
Isn't it time for your breakfast-time pout?
All because I'm sleepless

I'm overly tired of my wife
a very large part of my life
Driving me to a groggy grave
being bedridden with her
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-21 Swinging On The Family Tree
SWINGING ON THE FAMILY TREE

It's Saturday afternoon, one o'clock, Granny's house
Grandpapa says Aunt Sarah's
bringing her brand new spouse
Uncle Mel, who the hell is he?
Well he'll miss out if he comes late 'cause
picking apples from the apple tree
and filling up a wooden crate
has easily got to be, altogether, really fun
with your family

Did anyone ever tell you that
you've got your daddy's brains,
you've got your mommy's looks?
But I can't seem to pinpoint your personality
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on

Cousins and nephews, some twice removed
Aunties and uncles, some act removed
Granny and Grandpa are very confused
not which is which but just who is who


You've got your daddy's thoughts,
you've got your mommy's smerks
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on

The cool little breeze, these marvellous trees
It's almost a state of sweet utter bliss
But drinking my family's sharp apple cider
is getting me mentally utterly pissed

Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging on the family tree
Swinging
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-22 Neon Moon
NEON MOON

Souvenir cheese! Souvenir cheese!
Meet the man himself!

Meteor Burgers . . .
They're meatier.

Warp-warp-gravitize
Brake, air-brake dancin'.

"I'm grieving a crater-full of tears.
Don't leave me on neon moon."
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-23 Bad Magician
BAD MAGICIAN

Magical illusion, tragical conclusion
No one knows just how it's done
and no one really cares

With a bad magician
bad magician
bad magician
Mirrors don't even enter the picture.
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-28 Reach By Speech
REACH BY SPEECH

Don't put us to sleep when you're at the wheel
You can't expect us to feel
either way when you talk
Indelible ink's not made of chalk

You make your marks with blunted points
Tongues are not immovable joints
We could swing either way,
but only if we're pushed today

Reach by speech
Each word counts
You won't catch prey
if you don't pounce

To influence you must impress us
Boredom only will depress thus
don't go fishing, why not wait?
Your hooks don't hold your soggy bait

Every year it's someone new
but those tricks, they're always old

How can one choose a quality speaker
when there's no volume control?

Reach by speech
Each word counts
You won't wake me
with muffled sounds.
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-31 666-Luck ( 1 )
666-LUCK

Are you looking for luck?
Don't go away
Today is now your luck day.
Leave your name and number
and the best time for us to call
And then you'll be lucky once and for all.
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-32 Don't Hold A Grudge
DON'T HOLD A GRUDGE

When we talk you’re much too picky
which makes the situation sticky
which gets me stuck in all those tricky
games you say I play with you

All those notions in your noggin
keep on, keep on, keep on boggin’
down my chances of uncloggin’
both the lobes you listen through

Don’t hold a grudge
Don’t hold a grudge
Don’t hold a grudge
All it is is mental sludge

When we talk you’re much too picky
which makes the situation sticky
which gets me stuck in all those tricky
games you say I play with you

All those notions in your noggin
keep on, keep on, keep on cloggin’
those emotions which are boggin’
down my words like super glue

I can’t regret what I haven’t said
I can’t regret what I haven’t said
I can’t regret what I haven’t said
yet

Don’t hold a grudge
Don’t hold a grudge
Don’t hold a grudge
You’ve got to learn to budge

I forgive and I forget but I am easily reminded
you’ve reasoned that I’ve treasoned
which ain’t pleasin’ either of us
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-40 One Side At A Time
ONE SIDE AT A TIME

Let's talk, just the two of us
eventhough three of us are here
It's awkward for one of us 'cause
one brain ain't enough for two ears
Tell it to me one side at a time
otherwise I'm left right in the middle
Tell it to me one side at a time
I'm getting confused in stereo

Let's walk, just a few of us
eventhough more of us are near
It's awkward for some of us
For some of us don't listen, just hear

When words come from two mouths
who can tell who mouths what?

Tell it to me one side at a time
otherwise I'm left right in the middle
Tell it to me one side at a time
I'm getting abused in stereo

High Low
Yes No
Stop Go
Stop!

Three's a crowd but two's a normal conversation
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-42 Pip Squeak
PIP SQUEAK

Pip squeak (you are a)
Pip squeak
A little oinky pig-face pip squeak
(You are) so weak
(Yes you are) so weak
What a little snivelling geek
(You are) so meek
(Yes you are) so meek
A little oinky pig-face pip squeak
Track Name: DISC1-pOpcOrn-49 Shedding One's Tread
SHEDDING ONE'S TREAD

Miles and miles of smiles and tears
Many years, many fears
Now it's time to shift gears

Worked on ethic, pride and need
Enough to feed a family
We'd never tolerate any greed

Two-thirds a hundred and changing again
Life can drive one to think
of that youthful fountain as the sink
that's soaking the man, that has been

Shedding one's tread, shedding one's tread
Entirely up to me
Shedding one's tread, shedding one's tread
Retirement

I used to have a grip on life
My work worked as a sturdy tread
But now I sit home with my wife
My tire's bald as is my head.

Shedding one's tread, shedding one's tread
Entirely up to me
Shedding one's tread, shedding one's tread
Retirement
Track Name: DISC2-Extravaganza Deluxe!-02 Dinner For None
DINNER FOR NONE

"Welcome. Tonight's dinner consists of chocolate covered spinach and licorice pizza hors d'oeuvres, gingerly dipped in breadcrumbs, tobasco sauce and vanilla ice cream, sandwiched between warm lettuce leaves dripping with chicken fat and served on oreos for an appetizer. For the main course: congealed meatloaf and prune soup paste, lopped over a raw bacon slab stuffed with bubble gum and whipped cream, then gently deep-fried in year-old oil with sand. Served with side orders of: cold dry spagetti mousse floating in cream cheese and orange juice, and a small dish of steamed saltines. For dessert, a choice of: scrambled eggs with shells in banana jello, or raw clam meringue pie, or chicklets and candy corn frozen in beer, or a refreshing glass of dishwater."

Track Name: DISC2-Extravaganza Deluxe!-08 Bad Vibes
BAD VIBES

They take a midnight drive, goin' 95, to a seedy dive where the low-lifes thrive just to imbibe 'till their brain is fried, then they dance/collide. Lookin' beedy-eyed, they speak of bribe, then threaten lives playin' games with knives and if you can't confide or you're speakin' snide they'll get evil-eyed like Bonnie and Clyde so you'd better hide or . . . homocide.

Ooooooooooooooh, Bad Vibes

When a member of some cult or tribe, whose dislike is wide 'cause they dress drip-dried as they abuse wives, strides to your side and talks contrived, trying to deride with vile lies and diatribe just to kill your pride, which your nice inside could just let slide. So you get tongue-tied, wanna skin their hide with your ugly side but instead you cry, cry, cry. If something doesn't jive with this change of tide I have just described, this can be applied toooooooooooooooo
Bad Vibes
Track Name: DISC2-Extravaganza Deluxe!-13 Chants Of Rain
CHANTS OF RAIN

Buckets, buckets, cats and dogs
Wet the meadows into bogs
Rain enough to float some logs
Buckets, buckets, cats and dogs

Buckets, buckets, cats and dogs
Soak the lillies for the frogs
Make a mudbath for the hogs
Buckets, buckets, cats and dogs
Track Name: DISC2-Extravaganza Deluxe!-16 I'm Gonna Rock My Baby Tonight
I'M GONNA ROCK MY BABY TONIGHT

I'm gonna rock, rock, rock my baby tonight
I'm gonna treat my, treat my, baby right

I'm gonna crank her tunes and make like a clown
Then I'll cradle her when the sun goes down

They say her talk is mostly dribble
but she's alright when she starts to scribble

I'm gonna rock, rock, rock my baby tonight
I'm gonna rock her till she's pink and blue
I'm gonna treat my, treat my baby right
If you rock hard you could have one too

She turns me on with her high pitched shrills
When she warms my heart she give me chills

My baby wouldn't be a crier if I couldn't pacify her

I'm gonna rock, rock, rock my baby tonight
I'm gonna rock her in the morning light
I know my baby'll be alright
as long as she's in my sight
tonight
Track Name: DISC2-Extravaganza Deluxe!-19 Fairy Tale
FAIRY TALE

Once upon a time in a land far away
there lived a couple who was happy and gay
The couple knew they were taking a chance
"What will they think? We both wear the pants."

Very nearby lived a grouchy, rich man
Who go all his money from leasing his land
"How dare that couple be happy that way!
Besides the rent, how shall they pay?"

Each day he watched them through the trees
"They have a filthy mind disease!"
The man soon vowed to set them straight
or free their minds at any rate

"The sooner the better," the man proclaimed
"Your kind of animal must be tamed."

The couple moved to somewhere else
The man had ruined their mental health

The moral to this story is:
The object of life is to be able to live
Track Name: DISC2-Extravaganza Deluxe!-21 I Need A Hug
I NEED A HUG

I need a hug
I need to snuggle-up
To feel the warmth that will bubble up
when people double up
I need a hug

I'm not speaking of sex
and I'm not talking 'bout kissing
The squeeze and the relax
is what I have been missing

I need a hug
I need to cuddle-up
into a two person huddle-up
to make all my trouble stop
I need a hug

'Cause no amount of beer to chug
nor snappy, happy, crappy drug
could send my emotions to the ceiling
like the up-uplifting feeling of a hug
To feel as snug as a bug in a rug
would really tug my heart strings
But just some old fuddy-duddy won't do,
it must be some buddy's body, like you

I need a hug
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-01 Let Me Be Your Pet
LET ME BE YOUR PET

Let me be your pet
Think of all the love you'd get
Even after learning tricks
like doing flips and fetching sticks
I promise to be loyal,
assuming royal treatment

Let me be your pet
I think of all the food I'd get
Even if I'm unable
to put my paws on the table
I know that I'll get your attention
as a family extension

Let me be your pet
Put me on video cassette
with all of your relations
and family vacations
for everyone to treasure
all that gives you pleasure

Like a dog with a smile
or a cat in basket,
I'll belong to you
even while in the casket

Let me be your pet
to use me when you get upset
And holler out my dumb nickname
because you are the one to blame
Forgetting to let me out
and finding my mess all about

Get another pet
This relationship's all wet
I don't need my instincts
to sniff out what stinks
I hope it won't unnerve you
to know I observe you

Let me be your pet
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-02 She Was Sooooooooo Hot !
SHE WAS SOOOOOOOOOOO HOT!!!!!

She was sooooooooooooo hot!

Her eyes would fry you
So svelte she'd melt you
Even under drizzle she would sizzle
Anything she handed you branded you

1-2-3-4-5
She was sooooooooooooo hot!

My lips would blister when I kissed her
My arms would smolder when I'd hold her

You know she was comin' 'cause
a cake would bake
a stew would stew
oil would boil and
batter would spatter

2-3-4

Where she laid down would slowly brown
Only way to distinguish her is with an extinguisher
With a glass of wine she would flambe'
Move in close, we'll both sautee'

Cold hard cash would turn to ash
Ice cream would turn to steam

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15
She was sooooooooooooo hot!
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-03 Contagious
CONTAGIOUS

We are contagious to what the latest rage is
Contagious, for nits of all ages

Is it a sickness?
Or just a thickness?
We've got to lick this free will killer

Contagious gets on all the pages
Contagious, let's lock 'em up in cages

Why do we latch on to the latest fashion?
This disease will catch on in the right atmosphere, but

You're probably immune if you didn't swoon
for hula hoops and pet rocks,
leisure suits and wood clogs

We are contagious in different stages,
with an infection of predilection for trash

It's not bacteria so just be leery of
little urges for spending splurges


Start with a quarantine on Florentine art snobs,
foreign teen heartthrobs
and home shopping mart slobs

It hits you if it fits you
The fever grows because it knows who to pursue
Let's give it the old one-two punch,
no more "let's do lunch"

If you're contagious, try to save your wages
and be the first one on your block to last
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-04 Document: 55
DOCUMENT: 55 (Mitch Friedman/Ad Cooper)

Big blue marble, heh heh heh
Appears to resemble a fluctuating shresh
12 hours of night, 12 hours of day
Levels of strata sub sea-level mesh

Edifications incessantly hep
Population centers rely on commerce
Slave animal feces inform one's step
These nonetheless are not a raw resource

Upon disembarkment I find to be fact
walkways thought to be cool read square
Uncontrollable bacteria, that's where it's at
Trivium X is prevalent in hair

Can you dig the way these humans procreate?
Sexual appendages interlock
Hot rod locomotion, a disarming trait
Them humans, woo, a real gone stock!

The source of my linguistics
is the language called English
My musical logistics are rock 'n roll
New thoughts circumvented through my prish
deep down in my soul, go!

Through constant procurement of articles
this is what we found:
The violent action of particles produced a planet round

My hypothesis in summation
shall be clear to any daddio
Through certain unwavering indications
it is desirable to own a patio
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-05 The Pageant Song
THE PAGEANT SONG

Everybody put your hands together
Everybody put your hands together
Everybody put your hands together now!!!

You've reached the top, the top of the ladder
You've never stopped and we couldn't be gladder
You're the people's choice tonight!

For one whole year, the world has your name on it
Do anything you want to do
You're A #1 tonight, oooooh!

You're the high-fallootin', rootin' tootin' top banana
You've passed all the rest, you've mastered the test
you're the cream of the crop,
you're the absolute best!

You're the picture of perfection
with an element of style
Noteworthy disposition
with that old familiar smile

With a superhuman effort of which we now speak
you've climbed the highest mountain
and reached it's highest
peak peak peak peak peak peak PEAK!

Alabama Alaska Arizona Arkansas California Colorado Connecticut Delaware District of Columbia Florida Georgia Hawaii Idaho Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Mississippi Missouri Minnesota Montana Nebraska Nevada New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York North Carolina North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma Oregon Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Texas Utah Vermont Virginia Washington West Virginia Wisconsin Wyoming

The courage of a Dr. Martin Luther King
"I have a dream"
The grace and style of a Fred Astaire
"Go Fred Go!"
The goal scoring prowess of a Rod Gilbert
"Gilbert shoots, he scores!"
With a little Tricky Dicky thrown in

The moment is here, the time is near,
the answer is clear to me
It's you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you
YOU!
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-06 New Kind Of Human
NEW KIND OF HUMAN

Isn't it time for a new kind of human?
One so different they'll be assumin'

it could not be homosapien
No chance of ancestors ape-ian

One that doesn't need a god,
have a bod or lay down sod
One that will not shoot to kill,
take the pill or cook with dill
One that will not break from stress,
make a mess or stink at chess

Isn't it time for a new kind of human?
So if there are clouds mushroomin'
there'll be something 'round that's permanent
when we need a seed to germinate

For example, a sample member of this race
would have a blob of clay for faces
to mold into any form, so as not to have a norm.
Next the neck would be a piston
to connect the clockwork system
which would run without a winding,
long as the piston is still binding to it's source;
lemon juice of course. In the juice are nutrients
pure and cured to work in synchronistic timing
with the system's task assigning department.
All throughout the juice solution are the elements essential for developments both mental and physical, though it's in a dish. You control it all fluidically
though some would say that medically
it is not possible to have life without blood and brains.

Isn't it time for a new kind of human?
One so different they'll be assumin'
it could not be homosapien
No chance of ancestors ape-ian
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-07 Very Happy Blues
VERY HAPPY BLUES (Ad Cooper/M Friedman)

Well my woman make me happy,
so happy night and day
Give me love and kisses, I got plenty more to say

Well my woman treat me right,
you know she never treat me wrong
That's why I'm sittin' here strummin',
writin' this happy blues song

Well my woman look like heaven,
you know she never looks like hell
She's the finest looker in town,
she's mine and that's swell

Well I love my career and I love my boss, it's true
I get paid lots of money for the little that I do

Well I ain't never been to the doctor,
I ain't never had a cold
Loved everyday so far
and I'm looking forward to getting old

Well I really dig my neighbor
and I know he digs me too
When I need a cup of sugar
he knows just what to do

Well I lost my job and I lost my money too
Got all the time I need
to do the things I've been wanting to do all my life

Well my woman asked me if I knew the way to San Jose
Well I wish you all the best in life
if you decide to go that way

Well I'm so so so so happy, such a very happy day
Well I'm so so so so happy,
so very happy everyday
Well I'm so unbelievably happy and I like it that way

Well I'm a happy man, baby, I'm a happy man
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-08 Go Run Free
GO RUN FREE (Ad Cooper/Mitch Friedman)

Great bear sees his shadow, takes to the night
Fetch some water from gentle stream
Teepee leans toward children's dreams
Antelope, oh antelope, go run free

Oh baby, the way you kissed me really turned me on

Forked tongue liar is merely a fool
Distant horizon promises game
A rewarded man does not seek fame
Desert dog, oh desert dog, go run free

Small boy seeks comfort in the presence of others
The seasons change, as does my life
A tender rose calls my wife
Sasquatch, oh Sasquatch, go run free

Young scout ventures forth to seek new ways
He hones his craft through silent days
His people flocked to him from miles around
but lightning struck him down

Oh baby, the way you kissed me really turned me on
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-10 Sing-a-Ling
SING-A-LING (Ad Cooper/Mitch Friedman)

I wanna sing sing sing a swing swing swing
Ring ding a ling for some tingling
When I get a warm feeling all over my body,
something like drink drink drinkin' hot toddies
There is no doubt, no mistakin'
no P-A pausin', no hesitatin'
'Cause what it's all about in this cold world
is a man for a woman and a boy for a girl

BING-BONG-BING
IT'S A RING-DING SING-A-LING

I'll drink a toast to the words I'm singin'
S-A-N-G swing swing swingin'
'Cause they sound so sweet rollin' off my lips
Strictly for the hip hip hip
SENSATIONAL is how I feel
Shakin' my head and movin' with zeal
I'm gonna bring the beat on ho-e-ome
'cause it is bound to ro-e-ome

BING-BONG-BING
IT'S A RING-DING SING-A-LING

Manhattan, New York and old Paris
ain't got nothin' on me
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-11 Superbaby, What Are You?
SUPERBABY, WHAT ARE YOU? (Ad Cooper)

Honey, you look funny but don't forget you're my bunny
You have got the money to feed our son

Our boy's got water on the brain
He's a chubby little pain
Heroin in his vein but the kid keeps fighting on

He's a superbaby
No I don't mean maybe
He's got nerves of steel and a vice-like grip

Big 'ol friggin' head
you'd swear he was a man
The telltale sign's his sideburns
like that cat from old Graceland

Simple and sweet, yup this kid's got meat
I put him in the kitchen sink to wash his sacred feet
but he went . . .
Down the drain
Down the drain (I saw it)
Down the drain
But I know he's still alive
Yes he went down the drain
down the drain (I swear it)
down the drain
Superbaby, what are you?
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-12 Kloreen
KLOREEN

Kloreen, with eyes of pools of blue
Your sheen, a gentle lilting hue
Let me dive into your sea of blond
hairlike snarelike gentle frond,
to beat a backstroke on beyond
the sun soaked horizon, with your eyes on me

Kloreen, with eyes of pools of blue
Young queen, a purpose to pursue

Let me float my little body boat
by your purring, furry throat,
a girlish whirlpool where I tote
my tension revolving, dissolving from a scree

Eighty bathing beauties from the movies
could not match your aqua-spectacular

Raindrops rebound in triplicate
Teardrops trickling are tickling it
Sunspots grapple to evaporate
Paramecium populate
No activity of this nature
throws pacifity from your stature

Kloreen,
I'm keen on you
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-14 Hell-Fire Woman
HELL FIRE WOMAN (M Friedman/Ad Cooper)

HELL HELL HELL HELL HELL . . .
Give me a hell fire woman
YOW !
I want to funk her tonight
Give me a hell fire woman
UH UH UH UH UH UH UHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-16 Trick-Knee Trixie
TRICK-KNEE TRIXIE

Narrator: In the car, to the bar . . .
Wife: What a night ahead!
Narrator: At the bar . . .
Bouncer: Sorry sir, it's ten bucks a head
Husband: Why so much?
Wife: Why we just came to have some drinks.
Bouncer: Take a look at the sign
then tell me what you think about . . .

Trick-Knee Trixie
She goes backwards and forwards
No one knows the way
Trick-Knee Trixie will sway

Narrator: Afterwards . . .
Husband: What a show! We gotta go again
and again and again!
Wife: You can go.
That's a show that's only fun for men.
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-17 Sleeptown
SLEEPTOWN

Bring it down, now

The "lay flat" light is lit, please recline
as we carve a tunnel through an arc
of jumping sheep clouds
We'll snack on pills and warm milk
Don't forget the pillow headset

Bring it down, bring it down

White noise paints night
Dull descends like mighty nightgowns
In the aisles, on the wings
everything, dull

Bring it down, bring it down

Our dream feature for this evening
stars a cast of thousands from your life
set in surroundings of a logic jumbled,
all seen while you toss and tumble

Sex with stars, fights, flights
Endless home runs, endless runs home
Giants, gnomes
Murder, birth, sadness, mirth, space, Earth
Fall from a cliff, make a song, time travel . . .

Slight delay, can't sight a runway
There's congestion, circle 'round
soon we'll land in Sleeptown

Peer past prop propellers
cutting puffy parallels to peek through

See Sneaky Pete the Peep Clown
prancing, dancing, chancing sound
through the streets of Sleeptown

Check out the second hand clicking rhythm marching metronome corps
winding on to chime time

Bring it down, bring it down
About to land in Sleeptown

The eyelid kids have started a movement
pacing, pouncing back and forth
'cross clouded ground
They cruise in snooze to snore store
to rev their nose and throat motors

That quiet wining, pitter patter
of a cat or dog may shatter calm
Armed, the squad of cotton wad
rushes to the rescue!
A busker croons a womb tune over a heartbeat
far away down Dusky Street

Sleeptown, sleep
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-19 I Have Never Lied -`90 (bonus track)
I HAVE NEVER LIED

I have never lied to anyone,
that kind of thing is done by liars
I have never lied to anyone,
that was my brother who yelled "fire!"
Everything I've ever said is true
Especially all the things I said to you
If I ever lied to anyone
I would know because I'm honest

I have never cried to anyone,
that kind of thing is done by babies
I have never cried to anyone,
no matter how absorbent they be
Every tear I'll ever shed, I'd hide
This is really easy when you stay inside
If I ever cried to anyone
I would laugh because I'm lying

I would swear to tell the whole truth
and nothing but the truth, so help me God,
but I'm left handed

I will never side with anyone,
that kind of thing is done by losers
I will never side with anyone,
who said that beggars can't be choosers?
All opinions people have are wrong,
except, of course, the ones that you hear in this song
If I ever side with anyone
it's because I cleaned my mirror

I will never die for anyone,
that kind of thing is done by people
I will never die for anyone,
just to eat dirt that's near a steeple
Every minute I'm alive will be
a new chance to hear my name read on t.v.
If I ever die for anyone
they had better take full credit
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-20 Little Masterpiece -`91 (bonus track)
LITTLE MASTERPIECE

The painter places her final stroke
then slowly steps back so to soak in
every inch of her work of art
imbued with all of her soul and heart

You're my little masterpiece
A brand new creative release
From me to you
From me to you yeah
me to you

The new momma nurses her baby boy
you know he's her perfect pride and joy
As she suckles her first son
she thinks "he's the best thing I've ever done"

You're my little masterpiece
A brand new creative release
From me to you
From me to you yeah
me to you

A new planet now complete
so God kicks up his tired feet
there's resources and room to roam
so all you dwellers, welcome home!

You're my little masterpiece
A brand new creative release
From me to you
From me to you yeah
me to you

A common cliche' that's spoken today
says art imitates life
But life is an art form that cannot be mastered,
and once it's done, art lives as a bastard

The ruler plots his next advance
but this time nothing's left to chance
Ultimate victory will be his
as he blows the Earth to bits

You're my little masterpiece
A brand new creative release
From me to you
From me to you yeah
me to you
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-21 A Lost Clown -`91 (bonus track)
A LOST CLOWN

I slowly shuffle along the street
Red oversized shoes on my feet
Caked facial makeup streaks from the heat
My baggy polka-dotted pants are sagging
'cause they're soiled

All kinds of circus freaks pass me by
and enter buildings that scrape the sky
They're really not that different than I,
except they have a place to eat and sleep
which makes them spoiled

I'm a lost clown
can somebody help me?
Somebody help me to find my way around
I'll wear a frown until somebody tells me
where to find the children
who will laugh at me in this town

I juggle soda cans for a dime
or even do some tired, old mime
Most anything to pass the time
until Mr. Ringling and his brothers come to find me

My head still hurts from when I was mugged
by a pack of screaming thugs who were drugged
They crushed my pompom hat and I'm bugged
but I've got my bloodied bow tie
and bent horn just to remind me


I'm a lost clown
can somebody help me?
Somebody help me to find my way around
I'll wear a frown until somebody tells me
where to find the children
who will laugh at me in this town

A city sidewalk isn't where to do a pratfall
unless your curly wig can help you tune-out catcalls
This is one unfriendly big top
The ringleaders all dress as cops
Trapeze accidents happen all day

I am devoted to entertain
A day without applause causes pain,
but no one claps on a subway train
Why are people so afraid to express enjoyment?

Birthday parties are everywhere. . .
The sights and sounds of a country fair. . .
These memories are too much to bear
for a circus type whose biggest gripe
is hopeless unemployment

I'm a lost clown
can somebody help me?
Somebody help me to find my way around
I'll wear a frown until somebody tells me
where to find the children
who will laugh at me in this town
Track Name: DISC3-HENWAY-23 Mesmerized - '93 (bonus track)
MESMERIZED

It's not my diet, it's perfectly balanced
Every vital electron is valenced
More potent than a dose of extraordinary wisdom,
There's something foreign in my system

Mesmerized
Hypnotized
I am walking around in a stupor
Hit for a super-duper looper
Mesmerized

Mesmerized
Google-eyed
All reality is out of phase now
Unclear again in a happy daze now
Mesmerized

This time it's love, oh
this time it's love
Giddy inside, it's bonafide, I know
this time it's love

Mesmerized
Solarized
Half traveling in outer spatial
Rainbows unravel above my facial
Mesmerized

This time it's love, oh
this time it's love
Giddy inside, it's verified, I know
this time it's love

Mesmerized
