Doing That Scrapyard Thing

When I was young they gave me a mongrel piano,
Spent all my time inventing the cup of tea.
Writing your name in the sea,
Banging my favorite head.

Missing the last bed, waving the cheery herring,
Balancing brass bands on the tip of my toe.
Phoning your home from a tree,
Drinking my favorite loch.

When I was old they gave me a model factory,
I met three salads out on the motorway.
Leaving your name at the door,
Breaking my favorite egg.

Missing the walrus, sharing my last banana,
Balancing zeppelins on the end of my nose.
Calling your name in the zoo,
Blowing my favorite mind.

 

Don't Blame Me

Hear my story and listen well;
Truth is in all that I tell.
It could never have been me.
I did not shoot no deputy.

Mr. Grant, the deputy,
Friend to my whole family.
He always tell me when John Brown
Was getting ready to come around.

[Chorus:]
Don't blame me.
Don't blame me.

I hide it all except a few seeds
And make him think I plant for me.
When Mr. Grant and I know all the while
We've got enough for the whole island.

Three years now we sell it in town
Under the bucket that goes down.
No one knew of it but three:
Mr. Grant, Davis and me.

[Chorus]

I swear by God it is a plot;
Davis sent me here to rot.
Listen people, can't you see
Mr. Davis shot the deputy.

[Chorus 2x]

 

Don't Cry Sister

Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright in the morning
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine
Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, i tell you no lie
Don't cry sister cry, don't do it, don't do it

When old man trouble knocks on your door
Don't give him no key, he just wants more
He'll turn your life to misery
Kick you down, just like me

Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, it'll be alright
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine

Woke downhearted and you feel so bad
Somebody wants something of nothing you had
Love don't come too easy, you see
A little bit of you and a little bit of me

Don't cry sister cry, it'll be alright, it'll be alright
Don't cry sister cry, everything'll be just fine
Everything'll be just fine
Everything'll be just fine

Don't cry sister cry, don't do it, don't do it
Don't cry sister cry, don't do it, don't do it

 

Don't Know Which Way To Go

I think I'm leaving in the morning,
All your crying won't help you now.
I think I'm leaving in the morning baby, yeah,
All your crying won't help you now.
But the whole time I was with you baby,
Everybody, everybody knowed you weren't no good no how.

Yes it was a long time coming baby,
But you, but you finally made it home.
Yes it was a long time coming baby, yeah,
Oh but you finally made it home.
Yes I want you to realize now baby, yeah,
Darling you know you done me wrong.

You built my hopes so high,
Honey, you let me down so low.
Oh you built, you built my hopes so high baby, yeah,
Oh woman, you let me, you let me down so low.
Yes you got me walking 'round here in circles baby,
Oh I don't know which way to go.

Oh just one more time babe,
Just let me, let me prove my love to you.
Yes just one more, one more time baby, yeah,
Why don't you let me, let me prove my love to you.
I want to do all the little things baby,
All the little things I will you ask to do.

 

Don't Know Why

You say you want everything good for me,
But I know so well, I can tell when you're lying.
Making believe you're looking up to me,
And I'm just sitting here, crying.

[Chorus:]
And I don't know why,
I don't know why,
I don't know why I don't care.

You'll go on back to him, he'll take you in.
I know he's gonna love you, but I still want you back again,
'Cause baby you're part of me, it's deep inside of you.
When he's done all he can, you'll come running to your other man, oh yeah.

[Chorus]

I know you won't soon forget last night.
Your precious love was all over me, but it's all right.
Go on and try again but you know nothing's gonna change.
That's the way it's gonna be, oh yeah.

[Chorus]

 

Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight

Do me wrong, do me right, do me right baby.
Tell me lies but hold, hold me tight.
Save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.

Say goodbye, woman say hello, say hello.
It's sure enough good to see you, but it's time to go,
And don't say yes, but please don't say no.
I don't want to be lonely tonight.

Go away then, damn you, go on and do as you please, do as you please,
But you ain't going to see me getting down on my knees,
'Cause I'm undecided and your heart's been divided.
You've been turning my world upside down.

Do me wrong, do me right, do me right baby.
Go on and tell me lies but hold, hold me tight.
And save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.

Save your goodbyes till the morning light,
But don't let me be lonely tonight.
'Cause I don't want to be lonely tonight.

I don't want to be lonely.
Don't do it, don't do it, don't do it, don't do it.

 

Double Crossing Time

It's a mean old scene when it comes to double crossing time.
It's a mean old scene when it comes to double crossing time.
When you think you got good buddies, they will spin around and cheat you blind.

Double crossing man is mean, he will try to make it so you lose.
Double crossing man, he will try to make it so you lose.
You'll fill your mind with worry, you know he hurt me with the blues.

 

Double Trouble

Lay awake at night,
Oh so low, just so troubled.
Can't get a job,
Laid off and I'm having double trouble.

Hey hey, to make you've got to try.
Baby, that's no lie.
Some of this generation is millionaires;
I can't even keep decent clothes to wear.

Laugh at me walking,
And I have no place to go.
Bad luck and trouble has taken me;
I have no money to show.

 

Dreaming

Dreaming about my love;
You bring me joy and happiness,
More or less.
I dream my life away.

Waiting for you to come;
Changing my life for you to emptyness,
Meaningless.
Minutes just drift by.

I dont care if I get nowhere.
I can just dream and youll be there.
What else is there to do?

Dreaming about my life;
Where are you now, and when will you
Come to me?
I dream my life away.

Chorus

First verse
Dreaming, dreaming.

 

Driftin'

I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
Well I ain't got nobody in this world to care for me.

If my baby would only take me back again.
If my baby would only take me back again.
I would feel much better, darling, and at least I'd have a friend.

I give you all my money, tell me what more can I do.
I give you all my money, tell me what more can I do.
You is a sweet little girl but I swear you won't be true.

I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
I'm drifting and drifting, just like a ship out on the sea.
Because I ain't got nobody in this world to care for me.
