Rot en Roll

Rot & Roll

Take her home

My girl's a one-way elevator
she's always taking me up high
my girl is like a rough rotator
she winds me up until I fly

My girl is like a circus monkey
she's always making this boy laugh
my girl is like a shot to junkies
if you just see her you're in love
And I will try try try try
try try try to take her home

My girl's not mean and she's not evil
but she does much harm to me
my girl is like the old boll-weevil
she's making wreckage out of me

But I will try try try try
try try try to take her home

Stop drivin' me crazy

When I saw Jody standing at the bar
I stung my mate's eye with the darts
the place was changing into paradise
and I saw heaven when I saw his eyes

I said: baby, stop drivin' me crazy
I might be able to rape you
if you won't give me more than this

Jody appeared to be the kind of sailor
who gets his kicks out of a desperate man
he let me buy his drinks
he let me touch his hand
he didn't let me come closer
I said: baby, stop drivin' me crazy
I might be able to rape you
if you won't give me more than this

Jody really knows what's good for women
Jody knows what's terrible for men
Jody likes to sit and watch me ailing
time and time again
I said: baby, stop drivin' me crazy
I might be able to rape you
if you won't give me more than this

With(out) you

What am I supposed to do without you
what am I supposed to do with you
what am I supposed to do without you
what am I supposed to do

what will happen to me
if something happens to you
what will happen to me
if something happens to you

as long as I'm in love with you
there's nothing else that I can do
as long as I'm in love with you
there's nothing else I can do

Let her go

If the girl doesn't wanna stay: let her go, let her go
if the girl wants to make her way let her go, let her go
'cause I live my life the way I wanna live
and I'm not gonna give more than I wanna give
so if the girl doesn't wanna stay
well, let her go, let her go

If she thinks it's better for herself: let her go, let her go
if she thinks it's better somewhere else: let her go, let her go
'cause I live my life the way I wanna live
and I'm not gonna give more than I wanna give
so if the girl doesn't wanna stay
well, let her go, let her go

but no complaints about my friends
and no debates when I'm late
no more grunts about my funds
I do like her company just when she lets me free
'cos I live my life the way that I just want it to be lived
and I'm not gonna give more than my baby's wanting me to give
so if the girl doesn't wanna stay: let her go

Ooh wee (my baby's gone)

Ooh wee my baby's gone
ooh wee, she's movin on
ooh wee, away from home
ooh wee, my baby's gone, my baby's gone, ooh wee
away from me, ooh wee,
ooh wee, I want her back
ooh wee, back today
ooh wee, I want her here
ooh wee, here to stay, here to stay, ooh wee
my baby's gone, ooh wee
ooh wee, away, ooh wee

once in a while I'm not out on the tiles
I am not in the bar where my mistresses are
I am not in the place where the girls know my face
where the girls know my name where I misuse my fame
me, Casanova, those times are all over
won't spend no more money to get me some honey
I want my baby back

Darling, if you'll ever come back to me again
I'll be honest, I'll be true to you
I'll be an exemplary man

Down in Mexico

Down in Mexico lives a girl I know
she's so far from here but she is also near
'cause she's always in my head
and I just can't forget that she belongs to me
though she's oversea's
she's living near the border
but she ignores my order to leave this mean Chicano
she's still, as far as I know, down in Mexico
down in Mexico

I've sent ten telegrams:
"come back to your man"
you think it funny baby, don't wanna hear no maybe
and I won't stop my praying
as long as you are staying down in Mexico
down down in Mexico

Liar

Let me know if this will work out fine
show me that one day you will be mine
I would be a liar if I should say I'm not in love
I would be a liar if I should say I'm not in love

Yes, I'm patient but so insecure
promise me and I'll wait a few years more
I would be a liar if I should say I'm not in love

love love love I am in love with you baby
love love love I need your love so bad
%$#@*(&)(*&^%%$$#!!!?!

Looks like nothing's gonna come my way
I just need your phone-call every day

Searcher

Sleeping in tunnels, eating from cans
I live like a loser, not like a man
pain in my body, pain in my heart
help me to carry this burden of smart
where is my darling, where is my sweet
I need her more than the air I breathe
yes, I'm a searcher as of the day that my baby ran away

speeding through countries, adress unknown
where is my baby, where has she gone
oh cool my forehead, give me relief
my lonesome trial leads me to grief
where is my darling, where is my sweet, lord
I need her more than the air I breathe
yes, I'm a searcher as of the day that my baby ran away

Rubber girl

rubber girl, you're bouncing from one to another
rubber girl, you're bouncing from man to man
now you're making me believe that it is my turn
but rubber girl, I won't bounce with you again

For as long as the sun will keep on shining
you'll be bouncing to and fro
so as long as the sun will keep on shining
I won't fit in your bouncing row

Rubber girl, you must know that I love you
though you hardly know what that means
and while I know that my turn will soon be over
I think it better to let you play alone

Sugar Bee

Sugar bee, take your chance on me
I don't know if I'll make it
but I'm not gonna fake it
my love for you
Sugar bee, oh won't you dance with me
until my very last swing
I will give you everything I've got in me

Oh sunshine of my life
let me take you to my hive
sugar bee, I'm your honey

Sugar bee, have mercy on little me
it may be oh so pleasant
I offer you a present: all my love for you
sugar bee, oh don't you say no to me
I may be out of fashion
but I got old-time passion inside of me

Jim said hello

He's sitting right over there
I'd know that face anywhere
I'd run up and embrace him
but I'm ashamed to face him
just tell him: Jim said hello

I'd like to pour out my heart
but I don't know where to start
I'd like to tell him what
I'm really feeling but
just tell him: Jim said hello

just tell him: Jim said hello
just tell him: Jim
and he'll know

Don't tell him I'm feeling blue
that's just between me and you
don't say I'm thinking of him
don't tell him I still love him
just tell him: Jim said hello
just tell him: Jim
and he'll know

Tenderness

Smile at me and I will try to see
if I am wrong with all my plans to leave you
talk to me and I will try to hear
if I am wrong with all my plans to leave you
else I'm going, I'm going away from you
and your lack of tenderness

take your chance it's gonna be your last
it's gonna be the last time that I'll listen
all your charms and all your beauty
do not compensate the one thing that you're missing
oh, I'm going, I'm going away from you
and your lack of tenderness

Tenderness is the basis for loving
tenderness, a fact beyond doubt
tenderness is the firmest foundation
tenderness is what love's all about

Tenderness it kindles the fire
tenderness, is what love's all about
tenderness is the top of emotion
tenderness is heaven above
tenderness, you can't do without it
tenderness is the basis of love

I won't try with you no more
with you and your lack of tenderness
