Young Girls 05:58
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

Lucky 03:52
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.

Mongrelwise 04:05
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

Pool 04:57
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

Fishing 04:36
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

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.

Everybody 04:25
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

On The Beach 04:43
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.

Angry Women 03:55
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

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

Pool (major) 04:51
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
