BABY YOU'RE A DRAG

See me at the leisure lounge
I take all the dishes but I ain't no scrounge
You got plenty of dough, but you won't give it
Well, it's my life so let me live it

You used to me by queen
But now I gotta split your scene
Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down
Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down

It's a real big drag hanging at your pad
'Cause I can't get along with your Mom and Dad
They're real hung up on the working grind
Well, you know that really blows my mind

You used to me by queen
But now I gotta split your scene
Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down
Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down

What a drag

La la la la, la la la la
La la la la, la la la la
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah mama
La la la la, la la la la

You used to me by queen
But now I gotta split your scene
Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down
Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down

Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down
Baby you're a drag
'Cause you're bringing me down

Baby you're a drag
Yeah yeah yeah, you're a drag
I got to get away
I got to get away
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

 

 

 

DEAD OR ANYTHING (E.Dando/B.Lee/T.Petersson/J.Schwartzman)

Did you tell her she said to me
Did you tell her she was dead already
Did you tell her please speak to me
Well, did you notice she's not dead or anything
Dead or anything

In a car crash, nothing left alive
Tell a secret, walking through the wreckage
Did you tell her she said to me
Did you tell her she's not dead or anything

Dead or anything
Dead or anything
Dead or anything

Dead or anything
Dead or anything

 


FOR SHAME OF DOING WRONG (R.Thompson)

SYD STRAW:
It seems like a lifetime since I saw you
Lover, lover, I've been away too long
When I see lovers holding hands and sighing
I hang my head for shame of doing wrong

EVAN DANDO:
Bus wheels spinning, songbirds singing, break my heart
Take me back to old remembered days
Remind me of the times we spent together
Times before we went our separate ways

SS: I wish I was a fool for you again
ED: I wish I was a fool for you again
SS: I wish I was a fool for you again

BOTH: I'm sorry for the things I've said, the things I've done
ED: I'm sorry for the restless thief I've been
BOTH: Please don't make me pay for my deceiving heart
Just turn up your lamp and let me in

SS: I wish I was a fool for you again
ED: I wish I was a fool for you again
BOTH: I wish I was a fool for you again

SS: I wish I was a fool for you again
ED: I wish I was a fool for you again

SS: I wish I was a fool for you again
ED: I wish I was a fool for you again

SS: I wish I was a fool for you forever

BOTH: I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish (repeat)
I wish I was, I wish I was, I wish I was (repeat)

LOVE SONG (E.Dando/B.Lee/T.Petersson/J.Schwartzman)

 

PERFECT DAY (L. Reed)

Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
And then later, when it gets dark, we'll go home
Just a perfect day
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later a movie too, and then home

Oh it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It's such fun

Just a perfect day
You make me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow

 

PISS BOTTLE MAN (M.Watt)

There are some things a guy gets from his Pop
Some of these things get spaced, others are never forgot
I got such a tradition, I got in my truck cab

Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man

Miles and miles and all the while I feel secure
Even when a fuse gets short I can keep my nerve
Believe in such a tradition, I got in my truck cab

Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man

Piss bottle man
Piss bottle man

Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man

Piss bottle man
Piss bottle man

Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man

Driving in his shoes, using the bottle he used
Every time I pop I think of my Pop and pay my dues
Respect such a tradition, I sat in my truck cab.

Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man

Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Piss bottle man

SUMMER WINE
(L Hazlewood)

(SABRINA):
Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things

(EVAN DANDO:
I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to
A song that I had only sang to just a few
She saw my silver spurs and said lets pass some time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

(SABRINA):
Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohhh-oh summer wine

(EVAN):
My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak
I tried to get up but I couldn't find my feet
She reassured me with an unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me more summer wine
Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

(SABRINA):
Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Mmm-mm summer wine

(EVAN):
When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes
My silver spurs were gone my head felt twice its size
She took my silver spurs a dollar and a dime
And left me cravin' for more summer wine
Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

(SABRINA):
Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Mmm-mm summer wine

 

 

 

TO ONE IN PARADISE (P.Tolloy/E.A.Poe)

THOU wast all that to me, love,
For which my soul did pine—
A green isle in the sea, love,
A fountain and a shrine,
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
And all the flowers were mine.
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
And all the flowers were mine.

Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale
Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale
Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale
Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale

Ah, dream too bright to last
Ah starry hope that did arise
But to be overcast
A voice from out the future cries
"On... on..." - but over past
Dim gulf, my spirit hovering lies
Mute, motionless, aghast

Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale
Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale
Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale
Stay for me there - I will not fail
To meet you in the hollow vale

 

WAKE UP IN NEW YORK (C.Armstrong/E.Dando)

Wake up in New York
Put a comb through your hair
Don't you ever want to lie down?
When there's noone else around
I wanna say this to you

I know I hurt you
You know you hurt me too
Don't you ever want to lie down?
Close your eyes and leave the ground
I want to get hold of you

I'll meet you in New York
By the drugstore on First Avenue
And then we will lie down
With the buildings all around
I want to say this to you
I want to say this to you

 

 

 

YOU AIN'T GOING NOWHERE (B.Dylan)

Clouds so swift, the rain won't lift
Gates won't close, the railing's froze
So get your mind off wintertime
You ain't going nowhere

Oooh-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Ooh are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair

Genghis Khan he could not keep
All his gangs supplied with sleep
We'll climb that hill no matter how steep

Oooh-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Ooh are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair

Buy me a flute, and a gun that shoots
T ail gates and substitutes
Strap yourself to a tree with roots,
You ain't going nowhere

Oooh-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Ooh are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair

Oooh-ee, ride me high
Tomorrow's the day
My bride's gonna come
Ooh are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair
