Tu as raison, tu as tort. Je n’ai pas la fois pour tu homme. Les jeux sont fait pour toi. Moi je suis, ici toi tu et la. Tu est inconnu mais tu est lom de moi. Les jeux sont fait pour toi. Je dorme en une somme d'amour. Je n’ai pas Ia fois pour tu homme. Les jeux sont fait pour toi. Nous n‘avons pas. Les jeux sont fait pour toi.

I wanna leave my brain to science I’m going on a thinking man’s diet But it looks like i’ll have to pawn it I can’t find a doctor who says he wants it. You oughtn’t keep what you know you can't use Why conserve what’ll give you the blues I want to leave my brain to science, But they don't want it. I'm as wide as a painted Cadillac i’m a dirty dirty love ‘cause you’ve only seen my back a wild cat-a bear hunter walking cane I’m being slowed down because of this brain. I wanna leave my brain to science I’m going on a thinking man’s diet But it looks like i’ll have to pawn it I can’t find a doctor who says he wants it. You oughtn’t keep what you know you can't use Why conserve what’ll give you the blues I want to leave my brain to science, But they don't want it. I'm on the cusp of science, I'm on the cusp of science. Little dog, little dog blue, I wanna leave my brain to you, Little dog, little dog blue, i want to give my brain to you. I'm on the cusp of science, I'm on the cusp of science. Little dog, little dog blue, I wanna leave my brain to you, Little dog, little dog blue, i want to give my brain to you. Tried to leave my brain to science Thought I'd go on a thinking man's diet But it looks like I'll have to pawn it Dawg-onnit! I gave my brain too little dog blue Little dark blue has my brain I gave it to him Run, run away Run with my brain Little dog, little dog blue, I wanna leave my brain to you, Little dog, little dog blue, i want to give my brain to him.

One life, one match, and one kiss One 38 caliber pistol in my fist Don’t come around here no more Don’t come around here no more One fist, one fist, one fist One job, for one man, in one day One dollar forty-nine, that’s my pay Don’t come around here no more Don’t come around here no more One life, one match, one kiss Don’t come around here no more Don’t come around here no more One life, one match, one kiss

Went to Las Vegas, got caught in a tub Lost all our money, no way to get grub Look out now, love love love’s not doing us any good Tried to play cards, but it was craps Lucky number seven was a snake in the grass Look out now, love love love’s not doing us any good Gonna try my luck tonight Gonna see what comes in sight Maybe a lemon, mabee a lime, tangerine, sure would fine Gonna put a quarter in, and i’m gonna sit and watch it spin… ...Nuthin’ Drove through the desert to the city of lights Wanna go home, my toothbrush is brown Look out now, love love love’s not doing us any good

I want, I need, I feel, I ache, I am, I said I am. Don't make fun of my six bucket turntable, 16 head overdrive, dual cam carburetor, kick it in the back UH sports stripe, ski rack and jack, beige 24, 1979: Pinto. Don't make fun of my pin-stripe, belt buckle, polyester two-tone, hanging in the front, can't see my boots (maybe they’re shoes), French-cut: Pants. ‘Cause that’s the man I am A product of a trailer and it's bed Don't love me for my mind I'm no filmmaker in disguise Cuz that's the man I am I would not tell a lie, that man was I Don't love me for my mind The things I'm thinking best be left behind And I'm no success story, really I said I am no success story, really

I can't believe that beer’s half full, and it's all mine I smoke cigarettes from the ashtray I eat food that people throw away I wrote a pop-up book about me. I had a date, she said she was a shaman She kissed me here, and I said amen Come on baby, let's go do some farming. I got a hoe, and you got a shovel Come on baby, we got to hustle Rustle and bustle in the leaves with me. We’ll write about it Let's write about it We’ll write a pop-up book about me. I can't believe….that beer is half full And I can’t believe that it's all mine I smoke cigarettes from the ashtray I eat food that people throw away I wrote a pop-up book about me. I had a date, she said she was a shaman She kissed me here, and I said amen Come on baby, let's go do some farming. I got a hoe, and you got a shovel Come on baby, we got to hustle Rustle and bustle in the leaves with me. We’ll write about it Let's write about it We’ll write a pop-up book about me. I can't believe….that beer is half full And I can’t believe that it's all mine. That beer’s all mine.

The worst day I ever knew was when baby turned sixteen That's the day her permit expired and left my seat empty I remember teaching her the ways of the road Last time I saw baby she was doing it in the road. Because baby's got a car And she's driving it real far And I don't know where my baby’s at Because baby's got a car. Buried my pants under tar soaked lands, hoping one day they’d grow But her genie’s working overtime, and my seeds they won't get sown I remember teaching her the things that I know Last time I saw baby she was doing it in the road. Because baby's got a car And she's driving it real far And I don't know where my baby’s at Because baby's got a car. Red light, baby says she loves me...tonight Green light, baby she says “go” Yellow light, nothing's going to slow us...down Because baby’s doing it in the road. Because baby's got a car And she's driving it real far And I don't know where my baby’s at Because baby's got a car. Baby's got a car.

Soap soap soap, and Lucy Lucy Lucy Makes for a very clean clean girl. Soup soup soup, and a stack of soda crackers Makes for a very fine fine meal. When you put it all together, you've got it all Five feet of heaven and a ponytail makes love. Five feet of heaven and a ponytail makes love. A piece of Wonder Bread and Jiffy Jiffy Jiffy Sticky sticky sticky sticky sticky sticky sticky 35 + 15 add 5 is 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 When you put it all together, you've got it all Five feet of heaven and a ponytail makes love. Five feet of heaven and a ponytail makes love. I poisoned my sister, and I play some twister, to change all shapes I can't seem to slow down, if I'm coming or going, or is to begin I believe in my mom and my dad and I believe in the things I've never had, ‘cause I believe in, I believe in I believe in the workers revolution and I believe in the final solution, ‘cause I believe in, I believe in There is no love in this world anymore There is no love in this world anymore There is no butterflies ‘round here no more

(The conch bellows; the mythical creature wails it's awful cry. The angry Vulcan gods from below, beat they rhythms of battle upon their giant drum; beating in time to the sobs of the woeful God of Thunder who, standing up on a cliff overlooking the very edge of the word, laments the loss of his love with the mortal slave girl - whom he had battled passionately for, in the most recent of conflicts with the trickster god Loki - Besides which, confronting his fearsome father, Odin, before an audience of all those who resides deep within the halls of Valhalla, high above the Earth in the ancient city of Asgard. The angels of Valhalla perform their timeless number, perhaps soothing the great, saddened hero. And, well, one of his hammer? Is it of no consequence that his most trusted companion - lo, the sadness of the slave girl - must forever only be that of a tool of vengeance? Does the lord of the nighttime sky have a prayer? Hear his agony. But perhaps from a distance) I scream from the mountaintops I want love Olympus! Olympus! I am the Mighty God of Thunder I raise my mighty hammer, and I shake my weary head It is a very awful fate (Olympus was his name) I scream from the mountaintops I want love Olympus! Olympus! And I hover above the planet Earth Flying through the sky, looking to the ground below I am just a sad and lonely superhero (Olympus was his name)
