The Wrong Company

Well I fell into prison about a quarter till three
Where I found in my cell a glass waiting for me
So I filled what was empty and I pulled up a stool
But he stood in the corner, the old devil wouldn’t move
He said, “You drink when you’re lonely.” No I drink when I want!
He said, “You’ll never be sober.” Sure. Why would I want that?
I only drink to be merry but unfortunately
I’m in the wrong prison cell and the wrong company

Awesome Forces

Well have you seen us?
We summon awesome forces
We are the ones that myths and legends talk about
We’re so far beyond your definitions
We cannot die, we will not be broken

We have been chosen, the lone protectors
To rescue those who can’t survive
The onslaught of those Trojan horses
We cannot die, we will not be broken
No, no, no
No way
No, no, no

So many years, so many broken mirrors
And yet the truth remains so clear
If you do not like us, you might have to fight us
We cannot die, no way

We are your average ordinary superhuman
Punishers of evil, rock and roll band
And we’ve been designated to save this crazy world
We cannot die, for this is our destiny
This is our destiny
This is our destinyyyyyyyyy

Lady Killer

I’m a lady killer
And you’re a pretty lady
And that means I’m gonna kill you
‘Cause you’re a pretty lady
And I’m a lady killer
And that’s just what lady killers do

You find me quite charming
And I find it quite alarming
‘Cause I’m gonna take your life
You find me quite charming
And I find it quite alarming
And I’m sad you won’t be my wife
‘Cause I’m gonna cut you with a knife

Lady killing is a curse
I just killed a nurse
Yesterday with a big gun
Lady killing is a curse
I just killed a nurse
Yeah, lady killing’s no fun
But I’m going to do it
Until I die

I’m a lady killer
And you’re a pretty lady
And that means I’m gonna kill you
‘Cause you’re a pretty lady
And I’m a lady killer
And that’s just what lady killers do
It’s lady killing season tonight

So let’s all go kill a lady
‘Cause it’s lady killing season tonight!

Stagger Lee

It was back in ‘32 when times were hard
He had a Colt .45 and a deck of cards
Stagger Lee
He wore rat-torn shoes and an old stetson hat
Had a ’28 Ford, he had payments on that
Stagger Lee
His woman threw him out in the ice and snow
And she told him, “Never ever come back no more”
Stagger Lee
So he walked through the rain and he walked through the mud
Till he came to a place called The Bucket Of Blood
Stagger Lee
He said “Mr Motherfucker, you know who I am”
And the barkeeper said, "No, and I don’t give a good goddamn"
To Stagger Lee
He said, “Well bartender, it’s a plain to see
I’m the bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee”
Mr. Stagger Lee
Well the Barkeeper said, “Yeah, I heard your name down the way
And I kick motherfucking asses like you every day”
Mr Stagger Lee
Well a those were the last words that the barkeep said
‘Cause Stag put four holes in his motherfucking head
Just then in came a broad called Nellie Brown
Known to make more money than any bitch in town
She struts across the bar, hitching up her skirt
Over to Stagger Lee, she startin to flirt
Ohh Stagger Lee
She saw the barkeep, said, "O God, he can’t be dead!"
Stag said, “Well, just count the holes in the motherfucker’s head”
She said, “You ain’t look like you scored in quite a time.
Why not come to my bed? It won’t cost you a dime”
Mr. Stagger Lee
“But there’s something that I have to say before you begin
You have to be gone before my man Billy Dilly comes in,
Mr. Stagger Lee”
“I’ll stay here till Billy Dilly comes in to town, comes to piss
And furthermore fuck Billy Dilly in his motherfucking ass”
Said Stagger Lee
“I’m a bad motherfucker, don’t you know
That I’d crawl over fifty good pussies just to get one fat boy’s asshole”
Said Stagger Lee
Just then Billy Dilly rolls in, he says, “You must be
The mad motherfucker called Stagger Lee”
I’m Stagger Lee
“Yeah, I’m Stagger Lee and you better get down on your knees
And suck my dick, because If you don’t you’re gonna be dead”
Said Stagger Lee
Well Billy Dilly dropped down and slobbered on his head
And Stag filled him full of lead
Oh yeah.

The Road I Must Travel

Well, I climbed the seven summits and I swam the seven seas
But the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see
Well, I fought in the jungles and I fought in the streets
But the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see

Once I had a reason, don’t know what it could be
And the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see
Well, I sang to myself that I want to be free
But the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see

Na-na-na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na

I walked the empty desert and I was burned in the heat
But the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see
Well, I crossed the frozen wasteland in the bitter cold did freeze
And the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see

And I will knock on every door for I do not have a key
And the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see
Well, I sang to myself that I want to be free
But the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see

Na-na-na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na

They shot a man in Soho, couldn’t guess his age
I found his empty journal, I filled up every page
I called up my state Senator, they said he wasn’t there
The secretary took my name and, man, she sounded scared

So I counted my misfortunes, I added up the blame
I picked through all the garbage, I checked off all the names
I read in the newspaper, they’d questioned all my friends
They hoped that they could find my ass before I struck again

So I sang to myself that I want to be free
But the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see
So when thirsty I will drink and when hungry I will steal
But the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see

So tonight I walk in anger with worn shoes on my feet
And the road I must travel, it’s end I cannot see
And I will sing to myself that I’m gonna be free
But the road I must travel, yeah, it’s the end I cannot see

Na-na-na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na

There’s a sign along the highway but it’s too dark now to read

People

People are wasteful, they waste all the food
People are hateful, and people are rude
But god I love some people sometimes
Because people are very, very special

And people are impatient, they don’t know how to wait
People are selfish, people are prone to hate
But god I love some people sometimes
Because people are the greatest thing to happen
I said god I love some people sometimes
Because people are the greatest thing to happen

People are people regardless of skin
People are people regardless of creed
People are people regardless of gender
People are people regardless of anything
I said people are people regardless of gender
People are people regardless of anything

People are my religion because I believe in them
People are my enemies and people are my friends
I have faith in my fellow man
And I only hope that he has faith in me
I said I have faith in my fellow man
And I only hope that he has faith in me
I said I have faith in my fellow man
And I only hope that he has faith in me!
