MEDICINE SHOW (Jones/Letts)

Covered wagon medicine show Take you to the place where the healing flows Weak in spirit we got the juice Wont save your soul it`ll shine your shoes Treated king to kangaroo Santa Fe to Timbuktu Don`t be fooled by imitation This is the stuff that cured a nation We took the tube and the high plains too Never stopped long just passing through A drop of the laughter of the maids of France Makes a hopeless cripple dance It was really vile weather When we got to tarred and feathered You could hear the six guns sound As they chased us out of town In India we`re all the rave Discovered that its great as aftershave Dropped in the sea just off Japan Swapped 20 bottles for an aqua-walkman Immunity from ridicule Improves your brains if you`re a fool And I read in the Middle East They traded some for a hostage release Now if you`re bald it`ll give you hair If you got straight trousers it`ll give you flares Feeling up you`ll get depressed Out of style here`s a brand new dress It was really vile weather When we got to tarred and feathered You could hear the six guns sound As they chased us out of town The stuff we sell is just the best Passing all consumer test Days of heaven nights of sin Voodoo stick and sharks fin When all around you seems like hell Just one sip will make you well Multipurpose in a jar If you ain`t ill it`ll fix your car In days of yore for all bad feelings Washing socks and stripping ceilings Nowadays its used medicinally For all known human malady It was really vile weather When we got to tarred and feathered You could hear the six guns sound As they chased us out of town Guaranteed don`t you know Money back? You`ll get a no! It`s the one and only medicine show

SONY (Jones/Letts)

On the Ginza strip the 100th building On the 100th floor Dream team life enhancing Behind the 100th door Sukiyaki carried me to this place have to hari kari if ever i lose face Western girls at Lexington Queen Are the prettiest girls I ever seen I`d gladly part with hard earned Yen Just so I could be with them Chainsmoking at the Singalong Bar Werged into the Subway Car Heat up some more rice wine Somebody just jumped on the line Robots have run amok on the factory floor `Bin 20 years at Sony and I can see 20 more Hi-tech sex, wireless sets, samurai Western ways, baseball games, apple pie Though some will say we imitate Produce the goods at a cheaper rate Faster too reduced in size Our ingenuitys` realised I had to grab a massage cab I left my briefcase at the lab Godzilla ate the bullet train Wont see Kyoto ever again Now Papa jumped the gun back in `41 Following the flag of the rising sun When Tojo did the Mojo he was downed in flames U.S. Destroyer - Kamikaze planes The West don`t learn from history Doomed to repeat it endlessly We put the past on to Fuji Then we erase it totally - Yeah! Soon we`ll be known as Great Japan Just like they do in Great Britain Spelt microchip and solid state The things that made this country great Sony

E=MC2 (Jones/Letts)

Somebody I never met But in a way I know Didn`t think that you could get So much from a picture show Man dies first reel People ask what`s the deal? This ain`t how it`s supposed to be Don`t like no aborigine Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Took a trip in Powis Square Pop star dyed his hair No fans to scream and shout When mobsters came to flush him out Gangland slaying underground New identity must be found On the left bank for a while Insanity Bohemian style Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Met a dwarf that was no good Dressed like little Red Riding Hood Bad habit taking life Calling card a six inch knife Ran off really fast Mumbled something `bout the past Best sex I`ve ever seen As if each moment was the last Drops of blood colour slide Funeral for his bride But it`s him who`s really dead Gets to take the funeral ride Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Space guy fell from the sky Scratched my head and wondered why Time slide into time Across international dateline Scientist eats bubblegum Hall of fame baseball Senators a Hoodlum Big chiefs in the hall Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Stray thoughts fear to tread Placed upon the screen instead Shes my flame too hot to hold Had to settle for her cold Bloodlust - Greek God - Gold discovery Gone bust - Tight wad - Slow recovery Axe job - Flame thrower - Ironbar and gun Betting shop - New owner - A walk in the sun Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Spread the news the Maestros back With a beat - box soundtrack The King of brains - Queen of the sack` Executives have heart attack It`s assault course celluloid The money makers would avoid Sometimes notions get reversed Centre of the universe Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery

THE BOTTOM LINE (Jones)

The horses are on the track Theres a new dance thats going around When the hits start flying you gotta get down All the young people dance round the square That old time groove is really nowhere When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up of the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for A dance to the tune of economic decline Is when you do the bottom line Nagging questions always remain Why did it happen and who was to blame? When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up of the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for They`ve been doing it down at the zoo And I can show ya heres what to do All of the States and over UK Even the Soviets are swinging away When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up of the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for The road aheads` clear as a motorway Give us this day our daily bread and send us on our way Perchance to dream or take a holiday Romeo oh Romeo You gotta have your say So when you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Anything you want is yours When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up of the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for So when you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Anything you want is yours Part two - Part two I`m gonna take you to part two part two

A PARTY (Jones/Letts)

Li - li - lion - Lions in a jungle Jungles in a cage Tra - tra - trouble - trouble in the homelands Trouble in the homelands Makes front page Zu - zu - lu - come out to play Bongo drums said today Front page caption read like this Natives dress as terrorist Tribal war a perfect plan For the one that damned the land Since that ain`t you or me Tribal war continually Mountain milk for mount nutrition Send us some more ammunition Never buy me ivy trade Let`s go plug a hand granade Thank you boss - for Red Cross Apreciate goodwill No - no - no - stomach for our loss Yeah - yeah - yeh - I fell quite ill I -I - I`d - really round the flag But we got so many I guess thats why why you act Like we ain`t got any Tarzan has come home again Heard the news diamond vein Had to split no room to siwing Sun City wanted him to sing! Easy to see no unity Masses ruled by minority When these guys come on the scene Ruined a good blues party I know I`ve hear the tune before I thought as I was kicked through the door Something `bout admission fee But I was sure house belong to me They told us to go in stereo Machine guns `gainst spear and bow Egged on by TV cameraman Someone called the teargas van White knight write our wrongs Lyrics for the protest song Number one top of the charts Rock and roll bleeding hearts They offer us a special patch Knew there had to be a catch Family tree pulled at the root They still bear that old strange fruit Plenty reason plenty reason to be gum Living by the gun down in a slum Stake your claim blow by blow Saw my pals go flying through the window Li - li - lion - Lions in a jungle Jungles in a cage Tra - tra - trouble - trouble in the homelands Boss in a rage I know mister if it was you It would be cut down like a flower Some things never change Corporate crime gets free range Only out for personal gain Grab the land and sieze the power! Whats all this about big game? Don`t you know the lions tame

SUDDEN IMPACT! (Jones/Letts)

Listening to a metal music prank That leads straight to the bank Each grunt and groan took literally Some tired old rock stars fantasy Suburbia is such a drag Bargain nightmares in a bag Newspapers sell disaster and sin And when the dustorm comes They say the Devil rides in Party down eat your friend B movie stories never end Rock the house shoot your mum Cheap thrills wrapped up in bubblegum Get down burn the cat The hardcore life is where its at Loveboat sub attack Beware of Sudden impact Burnt out case from the neighborhood Converge one night deep in the wood The bat from hell arrived that night To make that picnic outtasite! Satanic rights to a tune they knew well To make the party rock like hell Hold tight the ride begins Macho men with pimply skin Come fly with me Talk to the trees The duststorm dosen`t always please Thats the gamble inside your head Lets play something else instead Hide and seek for a shock I can see right through that rock Bang your dead the shit is real Someones scored a bum deal Teenage shrinks are all confused At the spread of drug abuse Meanwhile down at the games arcade The latest candies are displayed Guess what our kids got really cheap The stuff that puts the elephants to sleep Not paradise but blown to hell They took their sabbath tapes as well

STONE THAMES (Jones/Letts)

Heard the news about the scare In the underwear Populations getting thin Forget the bomb its carnal sin yeh! Marriage up divorce is down No one wants to fuck around Save the rose reject romance Micky Mouse don`t drop his pants Now to sexual relations Better take a wife Now that sex is death Better lead a boring life No time for social kissing You`ll hardly raise a smile When you think what you`ll be missing Iron undies back in style Now where did it start? And where will it end? Be nice to the wife Can`t trust your friends Masculine natural nowadays can offend Never gonna fall in love again Seems like only yesterday Cocaine and extasy Run around and jump on anything ya see A marriage of convenience Saw a doctor went abroad Saved up a few pennies Ran the weelchair down to Lourdes Now handsome is as handsome does And I did it everywhere Before the currant era I didn`t have a care Bloodstream destination Megavitamin therapy Artificial insemination D.I.Y. vasectomy Oh spaceman junkfood Dallas The 20th century Two World Wars a Great Depression This must be Germ War III Now where did it start? And where will it end? Be nice to the wife Can`t trust your friends Masculine natural nowadays can offend Never gonna fall in love again No need for alimony `Cos no one wants to split Liesure times a gamble But jogging keeps you fit Packed my bags for China Join the yellow race Nostradamus had a theory They`re inheriting the place Blamed it on the Haliens C.I.A and KGB A.R.C. light a shining Down on monogamy New date really hard Promiscure? Change your views Unless you got a health card Take a tip from Howard Hughes Oh Trocadero transfer I-Beam closet scene Cat and mouse with the press Exposť celebrity Now where did it start? And where will it end? Be nice to the wife Can`t trust your friends Masculine natural nowadays can offend Never gonna fall in love again No no no The tramp of time continues En masse to wedding bells But they haven`t made no breakthrough To helper T. white cells Wholesale Hyper wipe out Technology against the pest Put away those etchings Sorry baby no contest Notches and phone members Collection flesh as pelts Stealing cancers thunder Blows below the belt Oh don`t it make you wonder `Bout how the cards are dealt Hoyl cow Now where did it start? And where will it end? Be nice to the wife Can`t trust your friends Masculine natural nowadays can offend Never gonna fall in love again

BAD (Jones/Letts)

Bad life bad language bad blood When I`m at home my woman wont leave me alone So I walked out the door and thats bad It seemed worse than before thats bad And the thought occured to me How come that everything ya see is bad But before I realised Hit by a trcuk and paralized Thats bad A golden opportunity claim my insurance policy hmmm! These are the things that drive me crazy These are the things that make me bad Watch TV go goggled eye See a horror movie get petrified Go dye your hair use peroxide Smoke a spliff and get red eyed Hitler wanted to commit genocide To the allied powers he notified Went into Poland the place he occupied They all had a war and millions died Jerry Lee Lewis had a child bride Only thirteen but he said it`s justified Clint Eastwood starred on Rawhide Now he lives in California up a mountainside When your making love gotta be satisfied Make a mistake must be rectified Jesus Christ got crucified So the Empire of Rome could be gratified These are the things that drive me crazy These are the things that make me bad From the dancefloor I can see decadent society As diverse as it could be its still cold and empty Theres the floor thats the score You don`t like it theres the door Attitudes of some would say I got money I`m ok And that`s bad These are the things that drive me crazy These are the things that make me bad Modify your wheels if you wanna lowride On the windscreen says tax applied Play music loud well amplified Each selection Bonafide Hawaii 5-0 deal with homocide On the slab the victims get mortified Some people like to eat Kentucky Fried Others like a Bic Mac and French Fries Nations` economys` on a downward slide On the best course of action no one can decide Company checks gotta be verified Poor people got no money but they got their pride Cop on wheels is ironside Eat sleep work cheap 9 to 5 Reagan won in landslide Which brings us back to Rawhide! These are the things that drive me crazy These are the things that make me bad
