Many thanks to Marcia, Marion and Linda...

All Electric

On a mission of mercy
My little goddess in white
I like your black fingernails
And your stiletto spikes

And I know you really want it
Yes you really do
Ain't nobody else can get inside of you
I know you really like it
Don't try to fight it
Ain't never seen anything like it

Come on little honey take a chance with me
I'm the only one who can set you free
I'm the only one who can set you free
Come on, come on, come on, come on with me

I'm all electric
I'm on fire
A hundred thousand mega watts
I'm a live wire

You don't know what I go through
Everytime I look at you
You get me high
You get me high
I'm gonna try
To make you mine

Come on little honey take a chance with me
I'm the only one who can set you free
I'm the only one who can set you free
Come on, come on, come on, come on with me

You got the panther walk
And you're dressed to kill
You're only 5 feet tall
I can't buy a thrill

And I know you really want it
Yes you really do
Ain't nobody else can get inside of you
I know you really like it
Don't try to fight it
Ain't never seen anything like it

Come on little honey take a chance with me
I'm the only one who can set you free
I'm the only one who can set you free
Come on, come on, come on, come on with me

Come on little honey take a chance with me
I'm the only one who can set you free
I'm the only one who can set you free
Come on, come on, come on, come on with me

Anna Lee
by Mike Campbell

Waiting by the phone, trying to get thru
Stuck here all alone, holding out for you
And I could wait all night, I could wait all night
Anna Lee, this life wonít set you free, if you believe in me, we can make it, together, Anna Lee

Losing your head, rough around the edge
Hanging by a thread, from a narrow ridge
And I canít leave you like this, canít leave you like this
Anna Lee, this life wonít set you free, if you believe in me, we can make it, together, Anna Lee

Holding out for you, no one else will do
Just give me a sign, my love

Hiding from the sun, time is looking slow
You got nowhere to run, you got no place to go
And I canít walk away, I canít walk away
Anna Lee, this life wonít set you free, if you believe in me, we can make it, together, Anna Lee

She Drives Me Nervous
by Mike Campbell

She wants to be my lover, she wants to be my mother, whoa oh, she drives me nervous
She wants to pull me under, keep me undercover, whoa oh, she drives me nervous
I found a new religion, it's called rock and roll, I found a new religion, it's gonna save my soul
The dog gives me rabies, she wants to have my baby, whoa oh, she drives me nervous
She's got electric eyes, she's beautiful when she cries, she drives me nervous
I got a new religion, it's called rock and roll, got a new religion, it's gonna save my soul
She likes to crack my whip, she likes to bite my lip, whoa oh, she drives me nervous
She wants to sleep in my bed, she wants to fuck with my head, whoa oh, she drives me nervous
I got a new religion, it's called rock and roll, found a new religion, it's gonna save my soul

Down To You

"Down to You"

Shut the door on me again
When morning comes you're gonna need a friend
I can take a lot but this is way too hard
This time you're pushing me a little too hard.

There's danger in the games you play
I'm wondering if I could slip away
If I were you I wouldn't play that card
This time you're pushing me a little too hard.

*Down to you
Down to you and me
Down to you
Down to you and me again.

So take your time and think it through
Don't you know I want the best for you
But you don't know who you really are
This time you're pushing me a little to hard.

*Chorus

(Thanks to Marion for the lyrics)

Marcia

On "Down to You" we have been advised of the correct lyrics to the second verse. They should be as follows:

There's danger in the games you play
One good hand and I could slip away
If I were you I wouldn't play that card
This time you're pushin' me a little to far.



Thanks for the correction, MonkeyPaw!

"I Sang My Balls Off For You"

It was ten past eleven when we hit the stage
Just gettin' tuned up
She was over in the corner sittin' by the dobro case
Drinkin' whiskey from a paper cup

* I sang my balls off for you
Gave it everything I got
You know what I need
You know what I want
I sang my balls off for you
You do something for me
You do something for me

Well she came down front and she flashed a smile or two
She had a tattoo on her thigh
Some drunk cowboy stepped all over her shoes
He got an elbow in the eye

*Chorus

Somewhere In London
By: Mike Campbell

Standing in the rain....
Waiting for someone....
Waiting on the delayed train...
Somewhere in London...

All the taxis go rolling by...
All the people with empty eyes....
Ooooooooh.....

Standing in a phone booth......
Somewhere in London....
No where to run to.....
Somewhere in London....

Trying to tell you that we'll be seen....
But there's nothing but here for me....
Oooooooh.....

Now I'm almost home....
And the fog rolled in.......
Now I'm stuck here again....
Waiting on the wind.....

Will it ever end...

Just another day....
Dark as a dungeon...
I could pick a better place....
Somewhere in London....

Somewhere in London....
Somewhere in London...

As best as I can decipher. LOVE THIS SONG!! Play it again Gator!

"Out of My Head"

I was alone
I took a ride
One little slip
And I was on my way

*And I'm out of my head
And I'm out of my head

You never know
How far you'll go
You never know
Until you cross that line

*Chorus

Talking to myself again
No one else is listening
My whole world is in a spin
And I don't know where I fit in

*Chorus

Periscope
The Dirty Knobs

(Mike) -
Hey, would you like to see my periscope?
Hey, would you like to see my periscope?
I keep it in my pocket, don't knock it,
it's just below my belt, if you knew how it felt
You'd want to ride

(Jason) -
In my submarine, dontcha wanna ride in my submarine?
It'll take you places you never seen
Point out points of interest in between

My periscope, periscope, it's a big one! Oh yeah.

(Mike) -
Watch out for my torpedo
Watch out for Tiger's torpedo

(Steve) -
Would you like to see my tomahawk?
If it hits you it might make you squawk
You might have difficulty walking to work
Tomahawk

My periscope, periscope, it's a big one! Oh yeah.

Sea of Hands
by Mike Campbell


These are the days
When everything changes
The streets are lakes of fire
And the city's layed to waste

Confusion all around you
Loneliness surrounds you
Shouldn't have to be so hard
You shouldn't have to fall apart

I couldn't see you through the smoke
I couldn't hear your voice
Through the pandomonium
The mob and the noise
And all the painted monkeys
And dancing DJ's
The clowns in all their glory
Through the smokey haze
And a sea of hands like ocean waves
Came crashing to the ground

It's what you call a tragedy
There's no one left to grieve
I curse the day I came here
I'll curse the day I leave

The walls were all shaking
And the windows were breaking
As I was running out
I heard somebody shout
Oh my God who can save us now
Oh my God who can save us now
And the last time I saw you
You were waving me good-bye

Blow Up My Stereo
Mike Campbell

I wanna blow up my stereo
Don't want to hear it anymore
Yeah, just give me one good song
to sing along to

I wanna smash my six string
it makes my ears ring
yeah, just gimme one good riff
to play along with

Sweet inspiration
a new sensation
So you got something to say
Better make it pay off
I wanna blow up my stereo

Sweet inspiration
a new sensation
so you got something to say
better make it pay off
I wanna blow up my stereo
my stereo
blow up my stereo, yeah.

Mike Campbell

<spoken by Tiger> Hey Mike!
I'm sorry, Gator.
Did I tell you what happened to me today?
Well, we got here to Mill Valley, and I was walking down a street, and I saw this furniture store
You've seen the furniture store, right?
Well, they've got beds in there
So I was in the market for a bed
So I thought I would have a look around the store at the beds
So I was walking around, and umm, I strolled non chalantly up to this bed, and there was this girl lying on it, and she had this sort of blonde hair that was sort of like, hanging down you know, down her back.

<spoken by Gator> Was she a hippie?

<spoken by Tiger> She looked pretty hip to me
And uh, she had her back to me, but I could tell she was beautiful because her hair was really nice
And she had this really nice sort of defined back, sort of muscular back
Then her hair went down to her waist, and then there was this great......ASS!
Do you know what I'm talking about?
And you know what?
I never found out her name, honest.

<song>
I climbed from your balcony
and landed on my feet
stumbled out across the street

From your second floor window
you saw me down below
and how I feel I know you know

You caught my eye in the light
thru the cold rainy night
I know your eyes never lie do they?
Do they?

Hey Charlotte
standing at your door
Hey Charlotte
just like the time before
Hey Charlotte
what are you waiting for, tonight

I've talked with your sister Jean
she said you couldn't be that mean
but I don't think she's ever seen
the worst of it

Forgive me for being bold
she's only 9 years old
she's only doing what she's told to do

But I would never tell no one
That you had your daddy's gun
we were only having fun, weren't we
Weren't we?

Hey Charlotte
here we are again
Hey Charlotte
this can't be the end
Hey Charlotte
won't you let me in, tonight

And I would never tell no one
that you had your daddy's gun
we were only having fun, weren't we?
Weren't we?

Hey Charlotte
here we are again
Hey Charlotte
this can't be the end
Hey Charlotte
won't you let me in, tonight
