This is a song for Carol
You're into Japanese fastfood
And I drop you off with your Japanese lover
And you're going to the beach all day
You're so pretty when you're unfaithful to me
You're so pretty when you're unfaithful to me

You're looking like
You've got some sun
Your blistered lips
Have got a kiss
The days are lit like everyone
Uh-oh, Uh-oh, Uh-oh, Uh-oh

Your bones got a little machine
You're the bone machine

I was talking to peachy-peach about kissy-kiss
You buy me a soda
You buy me a soda
You buy me a soda and you try to molest me in the parking lot
Yep, yep yep YEP!

I make you pray
You make me hard
Your Irish skin
Looks Mexican
Our love is rice and beans and horses lard
Your bones got a little machine
You're the bone machine

Uh-oh, Uh-oh, Uh-oh, Uh-oh  (3x)
Uh-oh, Uh-oh, Uh-oh, Uh-oh

Lyrics :

I'm a hard loser
You'll find me crashing through my mother's door
I am the ugly lover
You'll find us crawling on the dirty floor

Break my body, hold my bones, hold my bones   x 3

I'm a belly dancer
I'll shake forever and I'll never care
I'm a building jumper
Roof to roof you see me flying in the air

Break my body, hold my bones, hold my bones   x 3

Somebody got hurt
Somebody got hurt
Somebody got her

There was this boy who had two

Children with his sisters
              A
They were his daughters
              C         G
They were his favourite lovers

A D      B       E      A
I got no lips, I got no tongue
      D          B            E    A
Where there were eyes there's only space
  D      B       E      A
I got no lips, I got no tongue

A
I got a broken face, uh-hu, uh-hu
I got a broken face

There was this man who snapped his poke
In little pieces
And then they drilled holes
And then they put 'em back in there

I got no lips, I got no tongue
Where there were eyes there's only space
I got no lips, I got no tongue

I got a broken face
Uh-hu, uh-hu, uh-hu, uh-hu, ooo
I got a broken face

The little thing who loves my mother
Speaks no English
But if you saw her
You'd say "Hey isn't she lovely"

I got no lips, I got no tongue
Where there were eyes there's only space
I got no lips, I got no tongue

And this I know
His teeth as white as snow
What a gas it was to see him
Walk her every day
Into a shady place
With her lips she said
She said

Lovely legs they are
What a big black mask
What a hunk of love
Walk her every day into a shady place
He's dark, but I'd want him

Hey Paul, Hey Paul, Hey Paul, let's have a ball  (3x)

Gigantic, gigantic, gigantic

Will you take off your dress and send it to me?

I miss your kissin' and I miss your head
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
Run outside in the desert heat
Make your dress all wet and send it to me

I miss your soup and I miss your bread
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
So spill your breakfast and drip your wine
Just wear that dress when you dine

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

Esta pensando sobre viviendo con mi sister en New Jersey
Echo me dijo que es una vida buena
Enrique bien chevere

We'll keep well bred
We'll stay well fed
We'll have our sons
They will be all well hung

They'll come and play
Their friends will say
Your daddy's rich
Your mamma's a pretty thing

That maid Maria she is really OK

Vamos a jurgar por la playa

I keep gettin' friends
Looking like lesbiens
If we get bored
We'll move to California

They'll come and play
Their friends will say
Your daddy's rich
Your mamma's a pretty thing

That maid Maria she is really OK

There were rumours
-So he applied basically
-He was gone the next day
-And went off with the team
-It's like - he was go-they just like
It was so hush hush
They were so... quiet about it
And then the next thing you know...

  Hey, Monita, come with me
  There are planes each hour

  Where there is no sufferng
  Don't ask for rooms next to the stree

 It's her brain's desire

I'll think of her when I walk the strand
On this true hormos a night

Ed is dead  (4x)

She's just rotting in stupid bliss
With music on her bars uh
Her face burning in the L.A. sun
She got no got no fear of cars
I better kick my strand cruiser
To the friendlier oh oh oh oh oh oh

Ed is dead  (4x)

Ed is dead
Ed is, yeah Ed is
Ed is dead  (3x)
E.I.D.  (3x)

No, no, no, no, no

Lead guitar bits are just a high G note with a little string bending.

One night I upon my motorcycle

The joke has come upon me


In my motorcycle mirror
I think about the life I've led
And how my soul's been asking
all the holes where I had bled
My image spoke to me
Yes to me and often said
'You are the son of incestuous union'
One two three

Now my head is clear
My luke hands washed
My daughter's pure
My son is whole
Land of plenty, land of fun
To find out I'm Nimrod's Son

Oh bury me  far away please
Bury me

The joke has come upon me

                              I'VE BEEN TIRED

Intro bass: G/A/C

Rythm guitar: G

One two three
She's a real left winger 'cause she's been down south
And held peasants in her arms
She said "I could tell you stories that could make you cry"
"What about you?"
I said "Me too"
"I could tell you a story that would make you cry"
And she sighed "Aaahh"
I said "I wanna be a singer like Lou Reed"
"I like Lou Reed" she said sticking her tongue in my ear
"Let's go, let's sit, let's talk"
"Politics go so good with beer"
"And while we're at it baby, why don't you tell me one of your biggest fears?"
I said "Loosing my penis to a whore with disease"
"Just kidding" I said "Loosing my life to a whore with disease"
I said "Please... I'm a humble guy with a healthy desire"
"Don't give me no shit because..."


G          A     C          G
I've been tired I've been tired
A          C     G          A
I've been tired I've been tired
C          G     A          C
I've been tired I've been tired

I tell a tale of a girl, but I call her a woman
She's a little bit older than me
Strong legs, strong fase, voice like milk, breasts like a cluster of grapes
I can't escape the ways she raise me
She'll make you feel like Solomon be one of your babies even if you had no one
(And while we're at it baby, why don't you tell me one of your biggest fears?)
I don't wanna sleep after setting my loins on fire
But that's OK because...
