Track Name: There´s A New Girl Working In The Old Comic Store
I went downtown today
Just to hang around
Maybe pick up some records
Or some glue compound
I went down to Saint Charlie Brown
And peeped in through the door
And there was a new girl working
In the old comics store

I heard she´s only seventeen
But I really don’t know
Her name is Maureen
But everybody calls her Mo
She came down here 4 months ago
From somewhere up the shore
And now she´s here working
In my old comic store

Her breasts are really tiny
But her ass is as big as a house
And it makes me feel just like Krazy Kat
When he sees Ignatz the Mouse
That’s just my kind of body
That’s just my kind and more
And she´s the new girl working down
In the old comics store

I was hiding behind the fanzine stand
When she gave me a dirty look
I said you look just like that girl Maggie
From the Love and Rockets books
She took out a packet of cigarettes
And said: yeah? Well..tell me more..
And I said I cant believe a girl like you is working
In a place like my old comic store

She´s looking like a nice little drawing
Black and white with heavy outlines
Shes got those zig-zaggy shadings
The fifties kind
The fifties kind
Track Name: The Killer Jerry Lee
(Ooh the Killer)
He's got the bull by the horns!
(Ooh the Killer)
He’s got a chicken in the barn!
(Ooh the Killer Jerry Lee)
The Killer Jerry Lee!

His name is Jerry Lee
He’s a-howlin' and a-moanin'
In demented ecstasy
He’s a-rockin' and a-rollin'

His name is Jerry Lee
He’s at the high school hop
The girls all screamin'
With their skirts all up

His name is Jerry Lee
He’s a-cryin' and a-croonin'
All that killer country
Honky tonkin' and blue moonin'

(Ooh the Killer)
He’s got the bull by the horns!
(Ooh the Killer)
He’s got a chicken in the barn!
(Ooh the Killer Jerry Lee)
The Killer Jerry Lee!

His name is Jerry Lee
He’s a-thrashin' and a-shakin'
He’s a-lovin' up a storm
Convulsing and earthquakin'

His name is Jerry Lee
And the piano is on fire
The girls are all screamin' but
The Killer´s screamin' higher!

His name is Jerry Lee
He’s got flowing locks of gold
He´s nothing like us
Always doing what where told

(Ooh the Killer)
He’s got the bull by the horns!
(Ooh the Killer)
He’s got a chicken in the barn!
(Ooh the Killer Jerry Lee)
The Killer Jerry Lee!
Track Name: A Tongue Faster Than Muhammad Ali's and Sweeter Than Dolly Parton's
I figured out on the way to the track that something wasn’t right
My girl´s there yakking on the telephone like she´d been all night
I saw her blushing and I heard her whisper just as the car was starting
Something bout a
Tongue Faster Than Muhammad Ali's and Sweeter Than Dolly Parton's

It’s not just you my friends they said its they rest of our women too
Someone’s messing with your girl all right and we all know who
We decided that enough was enough so we picked up Mauler Martin
To deal with that
Tongue Faster Than Muhammad Ali's and Sweeter Than Dolly Parton's

Then we sat our women down that night to set their little heads straight
We started out all nice and kind but their eyes just filled with hate
And when we ruffled their feathers a little they all just started barking
And howling for their
Tongue Faster Than Muhammad Ali's and Sweeter Than Dolly Parton's

She’s small and skinny and her hair's dyed black with a stupid grin on her face
Just walk along the wall staring at us all always looking out of place
Still as we got ready to string her up we just couldn’t help our hard-ons
Thinking bout that
Tongue Faster Than Muhammad Ali's and Sweeter Than Dolly Parton's

Yes she had a
Tongue Faster Than Muhammad Ali's and Sweeter Than Dolly Parton's

Oh man she had a
Tongue Faster Than Muhammad Ali's and Sweeter Than Dolly Parton's


..in their twenties!!
Oh Yeah!
Track Name: I'm Probably Just A Fool
Probably by now
You've forgotten all about it
And I'm still sitting here
On the same old truck bed

You know i really thought
I'd better just if some day
You'd pass on back this way
And still may want to find me

And that's why I'm still here
In the same old hide-out
In the same old town
With the same old burnouts

So if you once come back
You´ll feel all sentimental
And take me back again
And come home to San Cemento

But I'm probably just a fool
Who's hoping for too much
And who's forgetting that
You'll never get in touch
And never will come back
And never really loved me
Yes I forgot again
It was only me who loved you


Probably by now
I should be on a train
But what if you should call
And ask for me in vain?

I might as well just die
If it happened that way
If that was my one chance
To get you home to stay

So thats why i stay here
In the same old adobes
Have the same old job
With the same old Chinese

So if you´d pass on through
You would see your life
Was right the way you left it
And stay and be my wife
Track Name: Cecilia Red
The sky is lighting up your thighs
Up against the wall
Like Platinum pies
Through the open door
Your mouth is greasy wet
Up against my face
And I realize it’s all
Just too late

As you’re grabbing me Cecilia and claw at my eyes
I'm squirming as you’re sliding up my thighs
Got an arm around your waist as your smothering my face
Till I'm out of my head
Cecilia Red

My nails in your hips
Up against the wall
As your pressing my lips
Against your eyeball
Your dark eyes are laughing
Through the lashes
Tickling like a feather
And it’s flashing

YearMillions of happiness buzzing round me inside
As I'm suspended here in our last goodbye
No! Its YearBillions ive got as I'm drinking up your shot
Tasting like sugar of lead
Cecilia Red

And you glow like a cigarette
With your crazy dance
As the portable toilet
Is shaking like my hands
As they're tearing at your dress
Till it’s just a rag
Hanging in the door
Like a flag

And I'm boiling to show you just where I'm coming from
Aw, it’s right out of a page by Robert Crumb
I'm howling like a train as were circling insane
Like a shiny swastika you said
Cecilia Red
Track Name: If You Don't Like Hank Williams
My girlfriend is always in my face
About my music style
She says that living in the past it just ain't worthwhile
How contemporary music talk about our lives today
But when she´s starting on all that stuff
This is what I say:

I Like Bobby Dylan
And Kris Kristofferson
And honey I'm still crying to Roy Orbison
I like Roger Miller and I like Johnny Cash
And if you don’t like Hank Williams honey
You can kiss my ass

Chorus:
Cause I think what they´ve done is well worth doing
And more for real than some bullshit modern band
You're the only one that you are screwing
When you put down what you don't understand

Me I like Gram Parsons
And the Carter Family
And I'm still hooked on Elvis and Mr. Bo Diddley
And I think old Ralph Stanley is a table thumbing smash
So if you don’t like Hank Williams honey
You can kiss my ass

I love Charlie Patton
And Blind Willie McTell
And when Son House is singing man I'm under his spell
You ask for something modern baby well I´ll put on The Clash
And if you don't like Hank Williams honey
You can kiss my ass

I don’t need your experimental rock
Or stupid retro bands
Or all those weak lead singers with nothing in their pants
You can take all of your Indie Rock and dump it in the trash
And while I put on some Hank Williams honey
You can kiss my ass
Track Name: Killer Joe
Big Joe was the king of the streets
And he sure acted like that
They’d all come for his company
But watch out for the rats

A German black feet Indian
Taking countries as they come
Said he was extraterrestrial
When you asked where he was from

Killer Joe
Rock n roll
Search and destroy
We’re gonna let them all know

Diamond Joe
Hey Ho lets go
Search and destroy
We’re gonna let them all know

Been in jail for prize fighting
In his German days
Shooting up on heroin
Knocking Iggy off the stage

The Vatican eats fetuses
Do the choirboys in the dome
First we take Manhattan, Joe
And then we take Rome
Diamond Joe
Hey Ho Lets go
Search and destroy
We´re gonna let them all know

Killer Joe
C’mon lets go
Search and destroy
We’re gonna let them all know

Another cheap Rose wine
And another joint
Fighting beavers in the river
Just to make a point

Stalking little teenage girls
Like a hulking Frankenstein
But when he was a young man
He’d do them 10 times a night


Killer Joe
Rock n roll
Search and destroy
We´re gonna let them all know

Hey Ho Lets go
Search and destroy
Rock n roll
We´re gonna let them all know


“Nobody comes close to me man!
I’m playing no ones game”
Dunno where he’s gone to now
But I think we’ll meet again
Track Name: Penny ( Yer Too Damn Skinny! )
Penny Penny Penny Penny Penny yer too damn skinny!
I'm looking for some maxi and yer giving me some mini
Penny Penny Penny Penny Penny yer ain't getting any
You used to be a shaker but now yer just too damn skinny!

Back when I met Penny she was a pussycat
Big white legs and a then a name like that
I talked her up and I walked her home
The sound of her walk was like a slide trombone

I don’t know if you’ve gotten bored or what
But all this exercising It’ll have to stop
I don’t really care about your long term health
I just wanna have me a big old belle

Please mister postman won't you send me a girl
A bicycle rider from a Bigfoot world
Cause now I know what Burnside was trying to say
When he was complaining that the meat don’t shake
Track Name: El Joven Is Alive
Buddy Holly
Good Golly Miss Molly
The day music died
Buddy Holly

Eddie Cochran
Was ripping it up in London
Then he went for a drive
Eddie Cochran

Patsy Cline
Knew it was her time
And she fell from the sky
Patsy Cline

Elvis Presley
Won all our hearts
But he lost all his life
Elvis Presley

Richard Manuel
Boiling in a motel
Hung himself that night
Richard Manuel

El Joven
El Joven
is alive
El Joven
Track Name: Sad Little Lovers
Chorus:
We can´t make together
But let’s just try again
Sad little lovers like us
We can´t make it anyway

Mads:
We can´t go on the road
But we got no place to stay
Sad little lovers like us
Are always settled down anyway

Lillis:
We can´t just have kids
But we made up their names
Sad little lovers like us
We´re just like kids anyway

Both
We can´t have a party
But let’s go to the promenade
Sad little lovers like us
We´re always drunk anyway
