Gettin’ Kinda Cocky

Gettin’ kinda cocky I’m a filly love jockey from WAY back in the sticks
Gettin’ kinda cocky pouncin’ on your hot legs is HOW I get my kicks

Stickin’ your neck out is what it’s about
Eatin’ red apples, better do it or die
I like those days, when I keep my skin
When I hit my wave, I’m gonna ride the wind

Gettin’ kinda cocky I’m a filly love jockey from WAY back in the sticks
Gettin’ kinda cocky pouncin’ on your hot legs is HOW I get my kicks

The road is rough and rocky, when you’re really free and cocky
But you’ll never stand tall, baby all brains, no balls
But my rock and roll, come on, oh man, call your own

Gettin’ kinda cocky I’m a filly love jockey from WAY back in the sticks
Gettin’ kinda cocky pouncin’ on your hot legs is HOW I get my kicks

Preachin’ love don’t do no harm, but you don’t have to twist my arm
I like those days when I keep my skin
Got away with it once, and I’ll do it again


When Electricity Came to Arkansas

Instrumental


Gigolo

Since I left home, Mama calls me no good
cause I didn’t turn out like she thought I would.
Not the teacher, not the preacher, no gospel singer,
by the way I earn my living she thinks I’m a sinner.

You see I make my livin’
bein’ good to women
free loves come and go
hey I’m a Gigolo I’m a Gigolo

Gigalo Gigalo oh do you know
I make my living for the tricks I know
there ain’t nothing bout my job that hurts
as a matter of fact I enjoy my work.

You see I make my livin’
bein’ good to women
free loves come and go
hey I’m a Gigolo I’m a Gigolo

No more choppin’ cotton, I ain’t forgotten
I make love reelin’ and a rockin’
some call me lazy I regret it but they do
my woman is proud of me and I’m proud too

You see I make my livin’
bein’ good to women
free loves come and go
hey I’m a Gigolo I’m a Gigolo


Hot Rod

I drive so hard,
I drive so far,
Won’t you watch me wheelin’ around?

Speed’s a hundred miles an hour, baby,
That’s too fast?
Better hang on tight like it was your last,

Hot…
It’s hottie, hot, hot, hot rod
Hot rod…

If you see me hangin’ around,
And you got nothin’ better to do,
Come on down on me, baby,
I’ll leave hot-rod tracks all over you,
Hot…
It’s hottie, hot, hot, hot rod
Hot rod

If you want to, if you will,
Jump my rod, it’ll give you a thrill.
Come on, mama, I’m asking you please,
Such a hot rod woman, you put me at ease

Hot…
It’s hottie, hot, hot, hot rod
Hot rod

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh
Fuel line is in a knot,
Always reachin’ for the top,
Some man said it’s a sin,
Won’t you let this hot rod in?

Hot… I’ve got a hot, hot rod
Hot rod…


Mutants of the Monster

If you believe, I mean really believe follow me and find
your way back through time
from the power I possess, I can see through the maze
I can see man’s progress
cause earth’s dyin’ days
but if we go back to nature
and live in the wilderness
just another animal pure,
earth’d live longer and we’d live less

Why do we need to live to be so old
when we could live free to die young and bold
man is an animal gone mad
yes he’s turned into a monster
our generation is his offspring
yes mutants of the monster

My power is magic
from a wish on a star
yea earning the wish is karmic
to help what good spirits there still are

But when you’ve been granted the privilege of bein’ heard
yea take great care with this power and watch every word
for when you know someone’s listenin’
your words can mean a great deal yea
they can be the key to magic thoughts
havin’ never been revealed

Why do we need to live to be so old
when we could live free to die young and bold
man is an animal gone mad
yes he’s turned into a monster
our generation is his offspring
yes mutants of the monster
We’re mutants of the monster


Hot ‘N’ Nasty

Chorus
Yeah, they call me yeah Hot ‘n’ Nasty
Yeah, they call me uh Mister Fancy
Yeah when you ball me
Yeah, you’re hot ‘n’ nasty
Oh when you ball me
You’re Miss Fancy! Right!

When I come a knockin’ at your door
let me in and I’ll tell you some more
no two men are ever the same
and they tell me Jim Dandy
is my name.

Chorus

They say Jim Dandy is my name
They say Jim Dandy is my fame
Always to blame
Always to blame
And always just the same
Yeah, Hot ‘n” Nasty

Chorus


Up

We’ve got a direction,
Oh, I reckon,
Some say it’s appalling,
I just say we were calling,
All through the sound,
Secure your feet to the ground,
We’ve been so long down,
Ain’t no direction left to be found,

We’re gettin’ up…

We got each other,
We’ve become brothers,
Have all different mothers,
But we’ve got to take others
Some think that we’re choking, I can’t imagine why
But this good pot we’ve been smoking sure does get us high!

We’re going up…
…up…
…up…
…up…
…up…
…up…
…up…
…up!

We’re following a shiny knight,
Breaking through the clouds!
Sometimes we go so fast, sometimes we get so loud,
But we’ve got a direction,
For the heart of the crowd,
Sometimes we go so fast, sometimes we get so loud…
So loud…
