Me and Lucy 02:42
I went to marry Cindy Sherman, But I couldn't find out who she was So I went instead to an agent who said, "I've got some viragoes." He told me let's do lunch And that's when he uttered her beautiful name, "Lucy Lawless." She used to go by Lucille Francis Ryan Until with Garth she tied the knot. But when they scrapped their marriage it was too late Her stage name was already "hot." Now I've got a date with her And there ain't much more to possess Me and Lucy Tanning leather, Polishing armor. That's how we'll be, Me and Lucy. We had dinner and saw a movie And went for a long walk. She said she understood the arrangement, So I started in with my talk, "Will you marry me?" And that's when she uttered those beautiful words, "Yes, I'll marry you." And so we headed off to Las Vegas, And stopped in at the nearest marriage joint. And as we wait in line at the chapel, Life begins to have a point Now I'm gonna marry her And there ain't much more to possess Me and Lucy Mending chain mail, Roasting wild boar. That's how we'll be, Me and Lucy. Me and Lucy Lawless Will grow old and gray. I know that she's not flawless, But to me that's OK. She had some leather on, I don't remember much else.

They're cloning Frank Blacks, I seen 'em all around town. They're cloning Frank Blacks, I seen 'em all around town. They recognized his genius way back when, Along with his unique physical characteristics. So, they took some seamen from the pink satin strip Of an old electric blanket. And they've had it frozen away since Nineteen eighty four. [cryogenically] Now this time in science has come; They've got the know how and now they're Replicating, replicating. Frank Black He's everywhere. They're cloning Frank Blacks I seen 'em all around town. They're cloning Frank Blacks I seen 'em all around town. Those scientists have asked the age old question: Is one Frank Black enough? And now they've given us A multiplicity of answers. I don't know when they started to live, But now there are so many of our rock bodhisattva. They are running this whole valley into the ground, And you can't tell who is who, who is who. Frank Black He's everywhere. Donate a few G's for a research grant And you could have your own Frank Black clone. Just imagine how impressed your friends would be And how your next cocktail party would be so much fun. Frank Black Frank Black He's everywhere. He's everywhere. He's everywhere. Come visiting was a Frank Black clone. He said although I'm just a hack, shown Visually I'm a close match, but it's known That I'm a fake by where my batch number's sewn. Do you think you'll like me better When I'm a rock n' roll star? They're cloning George Washington's trees, So why not Frank Black too?

What can you see inside of me [I will take you with me to Penjinskya] I wanna be holed up in Penjinskya, And I don't care what I've got to do to get there. Ahh And we'll get there in an "M" bag Underneath a rusty cargo deck. Penjinskya Ahh Bah dah ... We'll be holed up in Penjinskya And we won't have a lot to do In Penjinskya Penjinskya Penjinskya

My baby's got pretty good diction, But she doesn't have much to say. And because of her affliction She sleeps most of the day. Lately she's been getting jealous About my dark soirees in town. She tells me I'm over zealous About wearing my fleshy gown. Momma, have a heart; You know that I'm your only man. And we shall never part, You've got to understand. The feds paid me not to farm my land, So now I'm doin' some odd jobs here and there. At grave robbing I've tried my hand, And turns out pretty well I did fare. But now they're on to my experimentation, And now I've just become an arrestee. They never took seriously my adumbration, But now they know I'm a necro-debauchee. There'll be no four bit auction for me, 'Cause they done burned up all that's left. No there ain't nothin' left to see, [Ex]'cept that old Ford of me they done bereft. I got acquitted on account of insanity, And so I'm up here in my padded cell. Out of mind from most of humanity, And for them it's probably just as well. But I don't need myself a head shrinker When I can shrink heads on my own. Yep, I sure am a real different thinker, But I don't need no butyrophenone.

Abigail 02:15
Abigail I want you in my dreams. Abigail As doting as it seems. I just can't think about Anyone or thing else but you What you can't see Is painfully clear to me I have no one And cannot accept our love's end Abigail I want you in my dreams Abigail Your soul I do esteem And I can't imagine being Without you one second more What you can't see Is painfully clear to me. I have nothing And cannot accept your hatred Abigail I want you in my dreams. Abigail I want you to be mine. And as crazy as it seems, I just need to be here with you.

Her name's Melyssa with a "y" She says come on baby, let's go get high No that's a lie, but where should I start? Her claddagh ring invites me into her heart. You have given me so much air time girl [Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl] And I just don't know what to do I don't know what buttons to push now babe [Here with my new toy] [[I'm just helpless here with my new little toy]] [[[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]]] And I just don't know what Just don't know Don't know what. It's been torn out of the last SOB by those little gold hands You may want lovin' but they've got other plans Her little golden navel peaks out from under its tiny shirt Its only company is a crude tatoo which I think just says "Dirk" You have given me so much air time girl [Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl] And I just don't know what to do I don't know what buttons to push now babe [Here with my new toy] [[I'm just helpless here with my new little toy]] [[[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]]] And I just don't know what Don't know what Just don't know. She writes her number on the back of a brochure And then she finally stops calling me sir. when I leave I know I'll never see her again, But that's OK 'cause she's forever stuck in my brain. You have given me so much air time girl [Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl] And I just don't know what to do I don't know what buttons to push now babe [Here with my new toy] [[I'm just helpless here with my new little toy]] [[[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]]] And now I just don't know what Just don't know Just don't know what to do.

So we just split from that joint And left the whole damn isle behind [Behind] And now we're headed down south To find somewhere to unwind [To unwind] Get her old man out of mind Looks like I've caught us up on the story, So here we are: Boy stops in to take a leak and meets girl. [Girl meets the man she's been Waiting for to set her free.] Now they're in a lotion filled car. And this life chapter is ending; I'm goin' nowhere as a lotion tzar, [This old car] But this old Brat should get us far. I've liberated her from her posh but empty Life as a New York debutante [She wasn't made for life in any high society; She needs something aberrant] [[I'm having a good drive with my New York debutante]] [[[She needs an adventure, my New York debutante]]] We got a long way to go before we Get to New Orleans [New Orleans] But for the moment we're just happy Drivin' with our dreams [With our dreams] And gettin' some grub in Queens It's time to unload some lotion after We finish our meal [Bulgogi] And so then Johnny Lee and I, We do cut a deal [Getting a steal] He's really getting a steal Well, now I'm pumped fulla soju and so Phoebe's in Brat command And I'm just navigating us The best I can [Road as land] And all road is our land Lotion dilettante, teenage debutante Nubile sycophant, inguinal commandant [Ooo, sycophant] I'm her tough guy guardant And she's my little adjuvant [Yeah, tough guy guardant] Affaire mas piquant, Asian intoxicant [Mas piquant] I-95 accelerant, neuf et soixant [Accelerant] Have some Asti Spumant(e), à votre sant(é) [Asti Spumant(e)] A tuneful maison du sant(e) And some lotion fragrant.

Swiss Ann 04:25
Swiss Ann Swiss Ann Swiss Ann Swiss Ann Your directional aptitude had me impressed And then I went off in to a blast, But not before I went and prematurely assessed That our love should last You have given me a sickness and now there Is no Joy and no Hope [No Liberty] No, it's just Swiss Ann Saturate my soul. Ann, O, Swiss [Girl in the deep night walking her bicycle] Ann, O, Swiss [Girl in the deep night walking her bicycle] Ann, O, Swiss [Girl in the deep night walking her bicycle] Ann. [Girl in the deep night walking her bicycle] The perfumed residue of your Over-soaping leaches in to the air. This and the subtle bounce of your hair Cling to me; cling from you to me After hunting you down like that You think me vain And I'm just another well-fitted Tile in the water Closet of your brain Ann, O, Swiss [Girl in the deep night riding her bicycle] Ann, O, Swiss [Girl in the deep night riding her bicycle] Ann, O, Swiss [Girl in the deep night riding her bicycle] Ann. [Girl in the deep night riding her bicycle] I can see you riding your bicycle with your long skirt on My cardboard box. Your crisp blue blouse My chaotic smile Your freshly washed hair My unpunctual laughter Your unscented face My clumsy vernacular Your muscular neck My awkward gaze Your facile hands My obsessed craze Your barrista aptitude I'm just a small entry into your world And the only one in mine Ann, O, Swiss Ann. I can see you torching my picture and forgetting me entirely.

I think I heard somethin' on the front porch Must be the ghost of Fusion Bob I think I'll go offer him some coffee You know how he likes to hobnob Well the season's gettin' cold and it sure is blowin' hard so I offer him to come on inside He whips out his fretless Stratocaster And belts out an old favorite lied Once upon a time he was a metal head and listen'd to nothin' much lighter than Gwar! But now he rejects metal and punk with repugnance or any thing much heavier than Al Di Meola Anyway he's sure got some hipster ghost skills he can change his face just like Audra Wolfmann Now Bob puts his silky smooth guitar down and launches in to a tirade about Jan (Hammer, that is)

Philip 03:12
Philip's gonna be a rock n' roll star we should just let him go "I think he went out, bought himself a guitar." "And see how his hair has grown." Philip you don't know how lucky you are to be free of numbers I'm slaving away for a great Russian tzar Just to get some bread He went to South Asia learned to play the sitar and dropped some acid with John and Paul Tossed out his former works and rode that hip filmi car all the way to repetitive microform [Philip, Philip, Philip, Philip] Philip's gonna be a rock n' roll star; we should just let him go. 'I think he went out, bought himself a guitar.' 'And see how his hair has grown.' [Coy yawning hot seal Go to Djibouti Lenon McCartney Lenin and Trotsky] Sure he's no doubt a really smart guy but not too intellectual for the droves His ideas aren't at all pie in the sky; They're tangible and palatable He has worked his ass off to get where He is and makes no apologies for his work He's got a sound that's uniquely his You can recognize it a mile a way Some say he's minimal but they should know better; he's way beyond way beyond way beyond way beyond that When he get's goin' your ear he does fetter He likes to drive an idea home Sufficiently simple in every way And never too busy for an autograph Saw him on the street just the other day And said, "Hi, Phil," before he got a way Philip's gonna be a rock n' roll star; We should just let him go.

Miss B. 05:34
Miss B.'s personal hygiene wasn't quite up to par to the standards of the Western medical establishment Miss B. lived just upstairs from me, you know she never was a wife She hadn't really cared too much for men for a long time now, any way Her old man would only let her move out if she got herself knocked up so, you know that's exactly what she did At just sixteen three or four times was all it took and none of them were as painful as it had been When Uncle Joe had gotten her alone a few years earlier She had to put the kid up for adoption soon after it was born 'cause she didn't have the money to feed and clothe the kid, any way Well, that was many years ago, the kid's probably dead or gone to college by now but it sure got her out of the house Out on her own she's managed to support her self over the years with a whole slew of different jobs She's now got a job down at the local state college branch where she often gets taunted and teased Mainly it's because of her lifestyle but she had to keep the job in spite of this; it gave her somethin' to do and she needed to pay the rent, any way She did long for some kind of love in this wasteland of aluminum siding and open roads, home-welded gun racks, four-door cabs and her tired conscience She longs for some companionship but she dislikes nearly all people likes this rural life OK cause she can keep to herself but I was an exception she seemed to trust me for some reason Some times she'd knock at my front door It was always after she came home from work I'd usually go outside on our shared porch to chat with her because the intense smell was just too much, any way I don't reckon she bathes much more than there are weeks on a calendar From what I gather her sisters have tried to stage a few of those interventions over the years But she wasn't really mentally ill well no more than the rest of us. I've been keeping track of her in my diary I figure I'll be the only one who can say anything personal about her at her funeral: 'Just the other day I got a letter regarding sadness, but it turns out it was misaddressed' 'I don't need comisery when I can do it on my own; The feelings of one are easy to suppress' 'I don't have the patience, so let's just watch TV 'And one day I will become an ancress, Or I'll be on TV or become Earl's Duchess, Or win the lottery, Or voice my desperation, Or eat like a queen, if only just for one day.'

Chrome Molly 03:45
Chrome Molly Chrome Molly Once you're in the chrome-plated dress You'll never find an egress. Chrome Molly Chrome Molly She's never makes it to Mass, And she'll never turn down a pass. She's Chrome Molly Chrome Molly Chrome Molly Well, yah, I said "yes," But I was under duress. Chrome Molly Chrome Molly She's just so curvaceous, And my life's just tenebrous. She's Chrome Molly [Chrome Molly speaking] You found out IÕve got a crush on you? I left the cookies at your door. Have you noticed I'm being aloof? I think I've got chlamooodia. It's soft. I want you. It's hard. It's wet. [slurp, slurp] Chrome Molly Chrome Molly She tries to make me jealous With her muscle man Russ. Chrome Molly Chrome Molly Well, sure she's vacuous, But still always garrulous. Chrome Molly

You've got a selfsame twin, I met her last night. Although I couldn't win, I sure put up a fight. [Ooh... Ahh...] She had a coldass lexicon Rollin' off her tongue. Yep, she broke the alenon, The restraints came undone. She had redblack hair In a neat little bob And a killer stare That could take down the mob. Selfsame twin She's got me by the balls, And she's about to crush them with her evil muscular hands. She wore tight black leather pants And a conical bustier; The golden tassels danced Around the aureolae She got me all buttered up, As she ripped off my breachclout. I was naked as a little pup, As she beat me with her knout Selfsame twin She's got me by the balls, And she's about to crush them with her evil muscular hands. She makes nothing but discord, That evil diadem. Slashing with her heart sword, She's just a man killing femme. That totipotent somatic cell, Has got me in her sight She'll bring me straight to hell By the end of the night. Selfsame twin She's got me by the balls, And she's about to crush them with her evil muscular hands. You've got a selfsame twin, I met her last night. Although I couldn't win, I sure put up fight. Your teratoma's got you. What was once just a mole Has now got the sinew To take over your soul. Selfsame twin She's got me by the balls, And she's about to crush them with her evil muscular hands. You've got a selfsame twin Although I couldn't win, I sure put up a fight Against that twin o' yours. Selfsame twin Selfsame twin Selfsame twin

Esmerelda 03:01
[Esmerelda:] Came up here, but I'm still deaf To a world I never knew; Still can't make a living here-- Nothing to do. [her abusive sister:] Esmerelda, sister, dear Where you're going to go from here? You've got no where else to go without me; Now I just wish this much you could see. [Esmerelda:] Left my old country; they weren't much use Did not know where to turn Got to ditch my sister, now. Before she makes me like her. You've got to just break me free Before I'm burned. [abusive sister] Esmerelda, can't you see What they're trying to do to me. Ain't nothing but myself in this whole world I can't control when my fist is furled. Esmerelda, Esmerelda, Esmerelda.
