Hully Gully

They try to tell ya dreams come true
They lie until ya black and blue
You gotta put a deadlock on everything ya got
You gotta hide what ya ain’t got, too
It’s gettin’ onto daylight and I don’t wanna stop
I wanna do the Hully Gully with you

I’m gonna ride up to One-tree Hill
I’ll meet you at the bar and grill
We can get ourselves a six-pack and take it for a walk
And put it all on the motel bill
While we gotta back beat I don’t wanna talk
I wanna eh eh eh and I will

Yeah, Hully Gully

Track Name: Young Girls
Young Girls

Standing on the corner of Ward Avenue
With a couple of friends is where I see you
So invincible, so calm
Picking at something you found on your arm

Cause young girls can do anything, and still look good
Get away with anything, and still look good
Young girls yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Can do anything,
Can do anything

I think I’m gonna stop and tell you “whoaw!”
You’ll say “Tell me something I don’t already know”
And I’ll say “Yeah, sure, where would I begin”
And you’ll open the passenger door, and get in

And we’ll drive up north, all day and all night
Watch the moon rise over the Pacific on our right
You’ll make me laugh aloud, and I’ll do the same
And I’ll fall in love before I know your name

And when we run out of money, I’ll ring a friend of mine
From another place and another time
A plant operator in the coal fields out west
He’ll say “I’ve got a caravan out the back, be my guest”

And I’ll drive trucks in a coal mine all day
You’ll get a job waitressing in a truck-stop café
And we’ll live on whiskey and midnight meals
Of all the steak and cigarettes that you can steal

Cause young girls can do anything, and still look good
Get away with anything, and still look good
Young girls yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Can do anything,
Can do anything

And inside that caravan as the night winds blow
You’ll tell me some of the things that only young girls know
And when we’ve saved our money, you’ll kiss my friend
And I’ll forgive you both, and we’ll ride again

We’ll ride the highway, you and me
That runs out over any midnight sea
Straight out to that darker little patch of sky
Underneath the rising moon, and we’ll never die

Cause young girls can do anything, and still look good
Get away with anything, and still look good
Young girls yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Can do anything,
Can do anything
Track Name: Lucky
Lucky


I’m feeling lucky
Feel like I could give this world a shot

I’m feeling lucky
I wanna see if I’ve got the juice tonight or what

The way I feel
I could take this town
And smoke it way down past the butt

I’m feeling lucky
I wanna give this world a shot


I’m feeling lucky
I need someone who’s feeling lucky too

Someone who wants to make the wish
That I’ll make come true

Someone who’ll whisper in my ear
The secret combinations
That unlock the mysteries of the night

Someone who’ll close the curtain
On the early morning light


Well it’s been so long
I can’t remember when the last time was
That I knew I’m on a roll for no more reason
Than just because

With you beside me I can’t lose
With you I’m running hot

I’m feeling lucky
I wanna give this world a shot.
Track Name: Mongrelwise
Mongrelwise


Ten green bottles
On the wall
One by one
The bottles fall
One by one
Friends go down
Looking for fun
In little towns

I’m so happy
I found you
You made me realize

The only way to live
Is to stay positive
Fall in love,
Be mongrelwise


Once I knew
Everything
The sad songs
Lovers sing
I found you
And you showed me
A whole new
Philosophy

Every day
I take it out
And I try it on for size

The only way to live
Is to stay positive
Fall in love,
Be mongrelwise
Track Name: Pool
Pool

Looks like rain’s setting in for the day
It’s gonna rain into the weekend
At least that’s what they say
I’m gonna leave what I’m doing
I think I’ll go and play some pool

There’s a place I know you can only reach by sea
And with a rod and a line you could live there
Indefinitely
I’m gonna leave what I’m doing
Why don’t you and me go play some pool

I ain’t no drinker
That’s no lie
Just the couple it takes to co-ordinate
The hand and the eye

Dream on
Dream on
Looking out at the rain
Another hour gone
I’m gonna leave what I’m doing
I think I’ll go and play some pool
Track Name: Fishing
Fishing


Heaven is the evening chill
The long and lonely mile
Where my mind can wander where it will
And I don’t need to worry for a while

Looking out at the sea and sky
Wasting time for hours on end
There’s nothing wrong with me
As long as I’ve got a rod and line in my hand


I take all my troubles down
And I lose them on the shore
Where the tide is one long wedding gown
And nothing really matters any more

Looking out at the sea and sky
Wasting time for hours on end
There’s nothing wrong with me
As long as I’ve got a rod and line in my hand


Here and now
I am free
As alive
As I’ll ever be

Looking out at the sea and sky
Wasting time for hours on end
There’s nothing wrong with me
As long as I’ve got a rod and line in my hand
Track Name: The Perfect Crime
The Perfect Crime

The summer lightning flicks in sheets
The negative reveals
The last house where this dogtown meets the river
Meets the fields
Looking out the East I’d say
That thunderhead could be a thousand miles away
Out off the coast
Unreal

I’ve been thinking, off and on, about you
About the summer now gone
And what I mean to do
All in all this town
Is only good for if you need to not be found
For a while
For a turn or two

You, on the other hand, just may be
A whole new and fascinating possibility
How far, and how wired
Could we get on down the line
Once fired
On that trajectory

How long could we play
Who’d be the first to peel away
Before the end
Is what I’d like to see

Yeah, you can look around
But we ain’t got much time
Baby, we’ll be
The perfect crime.

The summer lightning flicks in sheets
Across the world tonight
All across this little town
This little party light
Strung out with the others
Down a highway bleak and beautiful as you
All flash
And no relief in sight

One kiss, and you and I
Could outrun anything we do
For a while
And that’s alright

Yeah, you can look around
But we ain’t got much time
Baby, we’ll be
The perfect crime.
Track Name: Everybody
Everybody

Everybody wants to be a wannabe
Living in a limousine
Everybody wants to be a tragedy
In a supermarket magazine

Everybody wants to be famous
Everybody wants more things
Everybody longs to feel the pain
That a whole lotta money’s gonna bring

Everybody wants their name on the guest list
Everybody wants to get in free
Everybody wants complete fidelity
From two or three lovers simultaneously

Everybody wants to be an individual
Everybody else does too
All I wanna be is idiot free
And outa here with you


Everybody wants to have children
No-one wants to hang around
Everybody wants the world to cry
When they’re lying in the cold cold ground

Everybody wants the ideal body
Waiting when they get back home
Whether that’s the one in Shanghai, London
New York City or the villa in Rome

Everybody wants to be an individual
Everybody else does too
All I wanna be is idiot free
And outa here with you


Everybody thinks they might have been kidnapped
And examined in a U.F.O.
Everybody’s locked into too much hock
To ever think about what they don’t want you to know

And still they’re gunna be an individual
Everybody else is too
All I wanna be is idiot free
And outa here with you
Track Name: On The Beach
On the Beach

They say there’ll come a moment when you look at someone dear
And the scales of love will fall from your eyes
When every vow you ever made to see her through the years
Is suddenly just one more pack of lies

Out across the city now the moon is on the wane
The tide is going out on what is true
Before this night is over I’ll renew my vows again
And I’ll be waiting on the beach for you

I’ll be waiting on the beach for you
I’ll be waiting on the beach for you
I’ll be waiting on the beach for you
I’ll be waiting on the beach for you

They tell you that forever has no meaning any more
It’s all as relative as right and wrong
That love is just a little while with one foot out the door
One eye on what else may come along

When you lie awake and count the years that remain
And know there ain’t enough to start anew
I can tell you now, I’ll say it simple, say it plain
I’ll be waiting on the beach for you

I’ll be waiting on the beach for you
I’ll be waiting on the beach for you
I’ll be waiting on the beach for you
I’ll be waiting on the beach for you.
Track Name: Angry Women
Angry Women

She calls me from the bedroom
As I go for a beer
Her tone of voice begins somewhere
That only dogs can hear
I dunno what’s the matter
I ain’t done nothin’ wrong all day
I know I’ll hafta play along
Anyway

Angry women
Everywhere
I guess it’s just their way of showing
They really care

Now she says she ain’t emotional
She says she’s had enough
She says its nothing personal
She’s packing up her stuff
She drags it down the stairway
She drags it out the door
Then she drags it back in again
She wants to tell me one thing more

She says there’s nothing she can do
She says it’s up to me
To choose between the way things are
And the way things aught to be
Then she telephones my sister
My sister tells her I always knew
What not to do
To make my mother cry

Angry women
Everywhere
I think it’s just their way of showing
How much they care

I have to guess it’s just their way of showing
How much they really care
Track Name: The Long Way Home
The Long Way Home

Darling I smell bad
But my heart is true
I kept it aiming where it should
On the long way home to you

The things you said were all wrong
Maybe I was too
I got to see that all out on
The long way home to you

I got to see the world outside of all our pain
To step outside, and feel how sweet it is
To be back in the arms of that world again

I tried it on
But each long lonely night I knew
In this world I’m only on
The long way home to you


How I’d love to stand and look you in the eye
To tell you I don’t get lonely in the night without you
And the things you said were all a lie

Darling
Darling
If you only knew
If you’d only lead me in
The long way home to you
Track Name: Pool (major)
Pool (major)

Looks like rain’s setting in for the day
It could rain into the weekend
That’s what they say
I don’t like what I’m doing
Think I’ll go and play some pool
Give the afternoon away with you
Go and play some pool

There’s a place I know you can only reach by sea
And with a rod and a line you could live there
Indefinitely
I don’t like what I’m doing
Why don’t you and me go and play some pool

I ain’t no drinker, and that’s no lie
Just the couple it takes
To co-ordinate
The hand and the eye

Dream on
Dream on
Looking out at the rain
Another hour gone
I don’t like what I’m doing
Think I’ll go and play some pool
Give the afternoon away with you
Go and play some pool
