Never Give It Up


NEVER GIVE IT UP  (S.DAY)


My mamma she does tell me, I have to stop all my drinking. 
It is doing nothing for my brain cells and my thinking.
When I get thirsty I have to have a drink.
I've got all the problems, I don't wanna think.

Everything I like is like a bullet from a gun.
I only live once, I'm gonna have some fun.

{Never give it up, Never give it up}
{Never give it up, Never gonna give it up.} x 3

Driving in my car, with my baby by my side.
Says to me to slow down, cause she wants to stay alive.
I get this sudden impulse, and my foot goes to the floor.
I just love that feeling, when I hear the engine roar.

I like it, I like it and I ain't never gonna give it up.  
I like it, I like it and I ain't never gonna give it up.  

I went to the Doctor and he told me no more smoking.
How is it I feel OK without a bit of toking ?
How do I get through the day without a cigarette ?
He said oh boy, it just may be your last cigarette yet.

Everything I like is like a bullet from a gun.
I'll only live once, I'm gonna have some fun.

{Never give it up, Never give it up.}
{Never give it up, Never gonna give it up.} x 3

All my friends they tell me, I'm having too much sex.
Randy had a heart attack, I just may be next.
I can't get enought for that feeling of the flesh.
I haven't reached my peak, haven't reached my best.

And Everything I like is like a bullet from a gun.
I only live once, I'm gonna have some fun.

I like it, I like it and I ain't never gonna give it up.  
I like it, I like it and I ain't never gonna give it up.   

{Never give it up, Never give it up.}
{Never give it up, Never gonna give it up.} x 4


May You Ever


MAY YOU EVER  (S.DAY)


Love, my love may you ever ever ever dream on.
Oh my love may you ever ever ever dream on.
Well you Fake a smile to brighten your day.
Take a step back to be on your plane.
Got to hold on, don't ever give in,
believe what you be.
And believe til the day that you win.

Love, my love may you ever ever ever dream on.
Oh my love may you ever ever ever dream on.
***Cool white light does shine from your eyes.
Got to see you live your desires.
Got to hold on, don't ever give in, 
believe what you be.
And believe til the day that you win.

Kicking at time, take a bow.
Core all the way.
Kicking at time, kicking today.
Don't show your hand to anyone.
Go hide it high.
Kicking today, kicking tonight.

Love, my love may you ever ever ever dream on.
Oh my love may you ever ever ever dream on.
Go Rise above all those with no feel.
Getting a hold of all that **feels real.

Believe til the day that you end.

Love, my love, Love, my love, 
Love, my love, Love, my love,

Easy Rider


EASYRIDER (M.SCULLY)


Heading to see the Sun.
Can't make it with one.
Holding out, while your holding in.
Can't wait to begin.

Easing ahead. 

God seen it before.
Going down to E4.
We sharing rhythm exploding in time.
Engulfing in your mind.

Easing ahead.
Go Easyrider.

Playing light on the air.
Letting go of all care.
Holding on, while death spells a rhyme.
Will come around here in time.

Easing ahead.
Go Easyrider. *7
Go, Go, Go, Go, Easy, Easyrider. 


Elvis With A Kite


ELVIS WITH A KITE (S.DAY)


Hold a candlestick, as a magic trick,
lighting up the wick, magic trick.
See a movie star, and a crashing car,
near nor far, crashing car.

Holding onto the reigns.

All religious tripe, cutting with a knife,
if I may I might, motorbike.
Elvis with a kite, switch-blade knife,
take the flight, keep up the fight.

Holding onto the rails.
When my mind meets madness.
We walk here hand in hand.
We tread a crooked path, 
that sometimes really is strange.
O' my dear...

Holding on to snakes, eating cake, 
only life at stake, on to snakes.
Gotta get a feed, gotta notta bleed, 
succeed, aim to super-ceed.

Holding onto the reigns.

Given life to grow, all I have to know,
go with the flow, gotta grow.
Path will wind, through another time, 
to another kind, another kind.

Holding onto the rails.

When my mind meets madness.
We walk here hand in hand.
We tread a crooked path, 
that sometimes really is strange.
O' my dear...                      (x2)


Baby Come Back


BABY COME BACK  (S.DAY)


I've lost all of my mind.
And now I'm trying find,
memories of this love that's left behind.
Visions of you, and the things we liked to do,
maybee on a sunday afternoon.

Remember all the times, we used to laught and skite.
I gave you everything I had, Baby come back.

I've lost all of my head.
For all the things I did and I said,
maybee I'm still better off than dead.
Hoping one day, that you will drop round to say,
darling do we have to end this way.

Remember all the times, we used to laught and skite.
I gave you everything I had, Baby come back.

I gave you everything I had.
**Thinking ahead, on how to make good from bad. 
Oh I can't believe that I've lost this love I had,
I'm sorry this time, the blame should all be mine.
It's true, I hope your feeling fine. 

Remember all the times, we used to laught and skite.
I gave you everything I had, Baby come back. 
{Please come back Baby Baby.}
{I miss you I do, Please come back}
{Please come back}


Bucket


BUCKET  (S.DAY)

A Belly full of bucket, a bucket full of bile.
A tragedy's a comic with acid in his simle.

I'll wait for something.

A belly full of bile, a bucket full of shit.
Nothing tastes like something, a remedy's a kiss.

I'll wait for something,
good to come along.
So good to come along. *6

A Belly full of bucket, a bucket full of shit.
A tragedy's a comic with acid in his spit.

I'll wait for something,
good to come along.

/so good to come along. 
good to come along./ *18


Laughting Bag


LAUGHTING BAG  (S.DAY)

I met a man who had a joke, I never heard him tell.
Every time he tried and spoke, my ears would hear him spell.

Har, ha ha har har, ha ha ha ha ha ha har.

I met a lady slightly crazy who had a funny story.
Every time she started up she let out with a gory.

Har, ha ha har har, ha ha ha ha ha ha har.

I met a boy not too coy, to laught and spit and chortle.
He had a sack, just a toy, that let out with a mortal.

Har, ha ha har har, ha ha ha ha ha ha har.


Bitching And Balling


BITCHING AND BALLING  (S.DAY)


Stop all your bitching and balling, 
peaceful harmonies are a calling.
As for your search for paradise,
see how your falling.

Start all your thinking and talking,
brazen new ideas are a calling.
As for your search for paradise,
see how your walking.

Yesterday is forgotten, 
time to put on a new face.
Yesterday is forgotten, 
time to put on a new face.
Leaving Yesterday without a trace.


Into The Light


INTO THE LIGHT  (S.DAY)


It's been a long time since you left me,
I'm so lonesome you're not here.
It's been a long time since loved me,
I'm so lonely do you care.

I dream of angels in the morning,
dream of devils in the night.     (x2)

O my bruised and my battered heart keeps on bleeding.
O my bruised and my battered soul keeps on dreaming.

Angel come lift me out of here into the sky.
Angel come lift me out of here, into the light.

It's been a long time since you held me,
tightly in your arms.
It's been a long time since you held me, 
closely to your heart. 

I dream of angels in the morning,
dream of devils in the night.  

Angel come lift me out of here into the sky.
Angel come lift me out of here, into the light.


Jaquii Wednesday


JAQUII WEDNESDAY  (S.DAY, A.POLIN)


Jaquii she's working, she's working it way to hard.
She just can't keep up with, she has to be.
She has to be.

Bobby he's making out, making out way too fast.
He just can't seem to contain, happens to be.
Happens to be.

Your driving it way too fast.
Better slow down to corner this scene.
I'm talking to you, are you listening to me ?
I'm talking to you, are you listening to me ?
Time to slow things way down.

Wednesday she's moving, she's moving it way to fast.
She just can't get enought of, thrill of the speed.
Thrill and the speed.

Daddy he's pushing, he's pushing it way to hard.
He just can't seem to see, some things have to be.
Some things have to be.

Your driving it way too fast.
Better slow down to corner this scene.
I'm talking to you, are you listening to me ?
I'm talking to you, are you listening to me ?
Time to slow things way down.


Mouthful Of Flies


MOUTHFUL OF FLIES


Have you heard the buzz, going round town ?
Spining up a web tryin' to bring you down.
Have you heard the bird, sitting top a grape vine ?
Whistling up a story just to pass the time.

A mouthfull of flies, that flies and lies and flies. (x2)

Lam bang boo is what I say to you.
Lam bang boo buzz. (x2)

(Repeat All)


Knife


KNIFE (S.DAY)


Hold onto this knife, and cut out the sadness.
A devil in strife, a cup full of madness.
I see the light at the end of the tunnel starring,
blinding me, filling me up with these feelings of tenderness.

Come hack at this heart, scratch at the badness.
Come wash my bite marks, soothe all the sadness.
I see the light at the end of the tunnel starring,
blinding me, filling me up with these feelings of tenderness.

Jesus will bleed, given the sign.
The sky will fall, black is the night.
The angel of darkness will eternally rule the streets.
I will bleed, until I die.

(Repeat Verse 1)

Jesus will bleed, given the sign.
The sky will fall, black is the night.
The angel of darkness will eternally rule the streets.
I will bleed, until I see the light.
