Tell Me What the Papers Say

I spy headlines, newsprint tells lies
Tell me what the papers say
Save lives don't drive, everybody's got to die someday
At least that's what the papers say

Coal mines closed down
Nobody's working underground today
More jails, peace for sale
Japanese still killing whales
Teen dreams
On two inch screens
Lipstick boys all look like queens
Least that's what the papers say

I spy headlines, newsprint tells lies
Tell me what the papers say
Save lives don't drive, everybody's got to die someday
Least that's what the papers say

Dope and pills, guns kill
Death just buys cheap thrills
Coal mines, closed down
Nobody's working underground today

Teen dreams, on two inch screens
Lipstick boys all look like queens
Least that's what the papers say

 

Tell Me When the Whistle Blows

There's a dusty old gutter he's lying in now
He's blind and he's old
And there's a bottle that rolls down the road
Me I'm young and I'm so wild
And I still feel the need
Of your apron strings once in a while
For there's taxi cabs hooting
But I can't be foot-loose forever
My suitcase it's a cheap one
My darling she's a dear one
My head's feeling light as a feather

Take my ears and tell me when the whistle blows
Wake me up and tell me when the whistle blows
Long lost and lonely boy
you're just a black sheep going home
I want to feel your wheels of steel
Underneath my itching heels
Take my money
Tell me when the whistle blows

Part of me asked the young man for the time
With a cool vacant stare of undue concern
He said nine
It's not so bad but I really do love the land
And rather all this than those diamante lovers
In Hyde Park holding hands
Blowing heat through my fingers
Trying to kill off this cold
Will the street kids remember
Can I still shoot a fast cue
Has this country kid still got his soul

 

Texan Love Song

I heard from a friend you'd been messing around
With a cute little thing I'd been dating uptown
Well I don't know if I like that idea much
Well you'd better stay clear I might start acting rough

You out of town guys sure think you're real keen
Think all of us boys here are homespun and green
But that's wrong my friend so get this through your head
We're tough and we're Texan with necks good and red

So it's Ki yi yippie yi yi
You long hairs are sure gonna die
Our American home was clean till you came
And kids still respected the president's name

And the eagle still flew in the sky
Hearts filled with national pride
Then you came along with your drug-crazy songs
Goddamit you're all gonna die

How dare you sit there and drink all our beer
Oh it's made for us workers who sweat spit and swear
The minds of our daughters are poisoned by you
With your communistic politics and them negro blues

Well I'm gonna quit talking and take action now
Run all of you fairies clean out of this town
Oh I'm dog tired of watching you mess up our lives
Spending the summertime naturally high

 

Thank You For Your Loving

Oh pity me
I'm so alone and so blue
My friends have all gone away
Their friendliness too

It was I on my own
With no need to be alone
And I wanted to die
That's when you came along

And thank you for all of your loving
Thank you for all of your tears
Thank you for all of your kindness
Thank you for being here

What a difference it makes
My life has started again
And if you go away
It just won't be the same

It's hard to say what I feel
When I'm by your side
You're there when I'm worried
All my troubles in you I confide

 

That's What Friends are For

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well you came in loving me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Oh and then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
The words are coming from my heart
And then if you can remember

 

There is Still a Little Love

There is still a little love left for me in your heart
Even though it seems to you that we are far apart
You can turn your eyes to other guys, ignore me on the street
But don't forget it's bound to show if we should ever meet

And there is still a little love left for me in your heart
You can use a little love to make a brand new start
For no matter how you try
You just cannot deny
There is still a little love in your heart

But you're far too proud to say what's on your mind
I can read you like a story book, do you think I'm blind
For every place I seem to be, you seem to be there too
Standing in the wings of love and waiting for your cue

 

There's Still Time For Me

Turn towards the neon night
And watch the spectre of the night time
Read the sign ____ killing time
And they can't see me, they can't see
Synthetic sounds around the town
Moaning bus queues all alone
Trying to find their own way home
Some are young and some are grown

There's still time for me
With just a little help from you
There's still time for me
There's still time for me

The mist of the city has soaken through my clothes
The people who were there before were only there to gloat
Synthetic sounds around the town
Moaning bus queues all alone
Trying to find their own way home
Some are young and some are grown

 

There's No Tomorrow

There's no time for waiting
No future to see
Inside the next moment
Nothing might be
The answer's not certain
No time to decide
Is this the last curtain
There's no place to hide

There's no tomorrow
There's no tomorrow
There's no tomorrow
There's only today

We all know the story
We've heard it before
We end up no question
Outside of death's door
There's no easy answer
To the question at hand
So easy to ask
And not understand

 

They Call Her the Cat

She threw back that shiny hair
Like the mane on a Delta queen
Gonna spend my last dime on a telephone call
'Cause she's the wildest thing I've ever seen
She was just plain mister once
Got herself fixed up real good
Just a little boy lost in the land of the free
A wiggle and a walk away from womanhood

Now they call her the cat
And that's a stone fact
They took a little of this
She got a little of that
Now Billy got a kitty
He got something to scratch
So they call her, yeah they call her the cat

She just does that double act
She got Babs and Joan down pat
She got hips like Mick, she's a Rolling Stone
Never seen a woman shake like that

She was just plain mister once
Got herself fixed up real good
Just a little boy lost in the land of the free
A wiggle and a walk away from womanhood

Now they call her the cat
And that's a stone fact
They took a little of this
She got a little of that
Now Billy got a kitty
He got something to scratch
So they call her, yeah they call her the cat

She's so fine that the water line
Don't separate hot and cold
She got stitched up bitchy by an old M.D.
Now she's headed out to Hollywood or so I'm told

Now they call her the cat
And that's a stone fact
They took a little of this
She got a little of that
Now Billy got a kitty
He got something to scratch
So they call her, yeah they call her the cat

And that's a stone fact
They took a little of this
She got a little of that
Now Billy got a kitty
He got something to scratch
So they call her, yeah they call her the cat

 

Things Only Get Better With Love

I'd say when Heaven falls
I'll be the war you never fought
I will protect you after all
My very own

And with a silent prayer
I'd run through city streets and bare
My soul from cold grey stone
For this love

I have in my desire
A will to walk through any fire
And I will stand by you
When winters come

And rise, rise above it
Take hold and take comfort
Cause things only get better with love
Break out the shadows, look to tomorrow
Cause things only get better with love

I came just for you
A wall around the living proof
No one can tear it down
Or break on through

Under a crimson sky
A soul bathed in the healing tide
No mortal leans on life
Like me to you

I have in my desire
A will to walk through any fire
And I will stand by you
When winters come

Laughter is better with love
Mothers live better with love
Teach your children love
Shower the world with love

Laughter is better with love
Mothers live better with love
Teach your children love
Shower the world with love

Laughter gets better with love
Mothers live better with love
Teach your children love
Shower the world with love...
