My Kind of Hell

Your hot coffee and my black tea
I don't know about that
I guess we choose to disagree
But I like your pork pie hat
Well your sister always came between us
Claiming she knew best
But she hitched her wagon to a diplomat
And she moved to Bucharest
While we just go around and round
Like a dull thud in a bell

Oh I can't say I ever liked you much
But you're my kind of hell
Oh I can't say I ever liked you much
But you're my kind of hell

Peddlers filled the New York streets
Selling watches from a tray
The thief in you said it's no sin
Hell they stole them anyway
We were living cheap in an old hotel
Eating rice and beans
Staying up late talking politics
With a couple of Times Square queens
But we just turned the heat up on
The stories we could tell

An island somewhere in the sun
Was always on my mind
But you tanned from the inside out
Driking cocoa butter wine
While you sold your past like Baptist fire
I was making plans to leave
But you trapped me as that ball just fell
On another New Year's Eve
So I gave it up for what it's worth
And crawled into your shell

 

My Strongest Suit

In life one has to face a huge assortment
Of nauseating fads and good advice
There's health and fitness, diet and deportment
And other pointless forms of sacrifice

Conversation, wit, I am a doubter
Manners, charm, they're no way to impress
So forget the inner me, observe the outer
I am what I wear and how I dress

Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere, ooh
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere, ooh

Now I believe in looking like my time on earth is cooking
Whether polka-dotted stripes or even checks
With some glamour guaranteeing every fiber of my being
Is displayed to quite remarkable effects
From your cradle via trousseau to your death bed you're on view so
Never compromise accept no substitute
I would rather wear a barrel than conservative apparel
A dress has always been my strongest suit

Staying in or hitting townwards, from the top and working downwards
I ensure that every stitch is stitched in time
Whether wig or hat or turban, whether clad boudoir or urban
Not to strut your stuff outrageously's a crime
And the few who are invited to my wardrobe are delighted
As they wander through my things to find en route
That in negligee or formal I am anything but normal
A dress has always been my strongest suit

Now you don't need a recital of the reasons why its vital
That tonight I simply have to look my best
That from coronet to sandal no one else is worth a candle
That I couldn't make more impact if I'm dressed
So bring me out my finest, most audacious, my divinest
Most revealing, most expensive and to boot
Most arresting, most heart-stopping, most free-flowing, most eye-popping
A dress has always been my strongest suit

 

Natural Sinner

Sometimes I feel too old to work, too young to die
I'll drink my whisky, I'll keep smoking 'till I die
I wear a suit of sadness made by experience
I believe that in the end time will head what's nagging me

I'm a natural sinner, born a sinner's son
Evil's been my motto, distrust everyone
I'm a natural sinner, born a sinner's son
Evil's been my motto, distrust everyone

Remember _____, now they're not hard to find
Now they ain't got no good side

 

Neanderthal Man

I'm a neanderthal man
You're a neanderthal girl
Let's make neanderthal love
In this neanderthal world

I'm a neanderthal man
You're a neanderthal girl
Let's make neanderthal love
In this neanderthal world

I'm a neanderthal man
You're a neanderthal girl
Let's make neanderthal love
In this neanderthal world

I'm a neanderthal man
You're a neanderthal girl
Let's make neanderthal love
In this neanderthal world

 

Never Gonna Fall in Love Again

Never meant to be so friendly
Never made the room look nice
Never heed a word of warning
Never take my own advice
I got a brand-new problem
Pretty and she's 5 foot 10
I been in love three times this week
I'm just about to fall again

I don't want to fall in love
Never gonna fall in love, again
I don't want to fall in love
Never gonna fall in love
I'm never gonna fall in love, again

Never meant to be so sexist
It's so hard to overcome
Trying hard to fight the feeling
Lechery can be such fun
'Cause everywhere there's lots of foxes
And every cat I meet's a tom
I wish she didn't make me rabid
I wish she wouldn't turn me on

'Cause everywhere there's lots of foxes
And every cat I meet's a tom
I wish she didn't make me rabid
I wish she wouldn't turn me on

 

Never To Old (To Hold Somebody)

Don't abandon the light
Don't step away
Don't give up that tune
That you never could play
If you're folding your tent
And the gas pipes groan
If every bone rattles
Through nights all alone
Well you're tougher than leather
No old burlap sack
Not some hard scrabble weed
Growing up through the cracks

Don't you know, you're never too old
You're never too old to hold somebody
Don't you know, you're never too old
You're never too old to hold somebody
You're never too old to hold somebody

Don't think you've gone out
Don't flicker and fade
If you're gonna get lemons
Then you do what they say
The wind makes you weary
Oh it knocks you around
Logs on the fire
Beats sun shining down
But you're harder than nails
No skinny old tack
You're still sharp as a razor
And I like you like that

I could bet on a horse
But I'm betting on you
You've still got what it takes
You got nothing, nothing to prove

 

Nice and Slow

We can spend the night right
So honey turn out the lights
And do it nice and slow
Do it nice and slow

You can work on a charm
And tell the man in your arms
To do it nice and slow
Do it nice and slow

Lying here in a way that I have always wanted
Close to you in a scene that I have always haunted
Time and time again we defended a right to cling to
Our love-shy goodbyes, for broken hearts could cry

You can do it, you can do it slow
You can do it slow, slow, slow
You can do it slow, slow
Do it nice and slow

You can turn on the heat
To keep a man on the streets
When you do it nice and slow
I like it when you do it nice and slow

You can work on a spell
And weave your magic so well
When you do it nice and slow
come on and do it nice and slow

You can do it, you can do it I know
You can do it nice and slow
You can do it, you can do it
You can do it nice and slow, slow
I like it when you do it slow, slow

Come on and do it
Do it nice and slow

 

Nikita

Hey Nikita is it cold
In your little corner of the world
You could roll around the globe
And never find a warmer soul to know

Oh I saw you by the wall
Ten of your tin soldiers in a row
With eyes that looked like ice on fire
The human heart a captive in the snow

Oh Nikita You will never know anything about my home
I'll never know how good it feels to hold you
Nikita I need you so
Oh Nikita is the other side of any given line in time
Counting ten tin soldiers in a row
Oh no, Nikita you'll never know

Do you ever dream of me
Do you ever see the letters that I write
When you look up through the wire
Nikita do you count the stars at night

And if there comes a time
Guns and gates no longer hold you in
And if you're free to make a choice
Just look towards the west and find a friend

 

No Shoestrings on Louise

Lady love rides a big red Cadillac
Buys the hoedown show salt and beans
Goes to church to pray for Lucifer
She milked the male population clean

So ride in line shake yourself by the hand
Live your life inside a paper can
But you'll never get to pick and choose
She's bought you and sold you
There ain't no shoestrings on Louise

Come on down, come on down from the ladder
Henry get your head, get your head out of them clouds
What she wants is to go kissing on a swine herd
You might as well kiss the boss man's cow

All those city women want to make us poor men
And this land's got the worse for the worrying
I got married at the early age of fourteen
And I've been worrying about the way you'll be loving them

 

No Valentines

No more Valentine's Day
No more Christmas cards
I've thrown them all away
No more sequined stars
No birthday wishes
No more surprises
Who needs them anyway
No reason to get excited

Yes I gave you everything
I gave you earth and sky
And everything in between
That walks or crawls or flies
No Easter mornings
It's your cross now
Keep it all for yourself
It's overrated anyhow

But keep my Valentine
I'll keep my bleeding heart
Just let me out of here
Before that sentimental music starts
And your regrets
Fall like empty lines
Like the lies we write on Valentines
