EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING AGAIN


EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING AGAIN! (S.DAY)


I woke up this morning when I fell out of bed
It seems I was having a nightmare.
My mother, she was strangling me,
while my father stuck pins in my head.

    Everything is happening again
             to meee...

I got to work late, and the boss chewed me out
he said, "don't ever come here again."
Now my girlfriend is complaining to me,
that she has no time for her friends.

    Everything is happening again
             to meee..

When I got home, my cat was dead on the mat,
you know it made me want to cry.
I always thought that I had a good heart,
it leaves me wondering why, is ...

    Everything is happening again
             to meee..


TRUE LUST


TRUE LUST (S.DAY)


I met her at the kindergarten,
she wore her hair in pig tails,
she had teeth like a rabbit,
and you know she loved to eat snails.

      It was true lust,
I've never felt these feelings,
         before her.

We would play in the dirt together,
we would trade bugs all the time,
one day I gave her a spider,
she said she would be mine.

      It was true lust,
I've never felt these feelings,
         before her.

She was great on the jungle gym,
there aint a tree she can't climb,
she was great at everything,
and she was mine.

There aint no happy ending,
when my baby doll moved away,
my heart was filled with sorrow,
for whom with, was I to play ?

      It was true lust,
I've never felt these feelings,
         without her.


TONIGHT TODAY


TONIGHT TODAY (S.DAY A.POLIN)


Around and around and around and around,
this city moves too slow for me, tonight....
Around and around and around it goes,
this city moves too slow for me, today......

and when you hold me here in your arms
              I could die.
and when you call out my name I'll be standing here,
             right by your side....

Around and around and around and around,
this world it spins too fast for me, tonight....
Around and around and around and again,
this world it turns too slow for me, today ....

and when you hold me here in your arms
              I could die.
and when you call out my name I'll be standing here,
             right by your side....

Look to the sun, look to the sky, look all around you,
what do you see? nothing thats real,
          nothing that will hold true to you,
            I will die in the end,
           you will die in the end.


THE KILLING JOKE


THE KILLING JOKE (S.DAY)


Cindy is flying in the sky,
she says that she won't go to high.
But I can see the path of her flight,
she wishes she may, I know she might.

She's dying, I'm crying
it's all up to you.
I'm hoping she's joking
the jokes on you.

Cindy she rides the train,
she says that she enjoys the pain.
And when she flys in me it burns my hide,
I hope she holds on to her life.

She's dying, I'm crying
it's all up to you.
I'm hoping she's joking
the jokes on you.

Cindy she loves to hit the nail,
she says that her hit never fails.
She always said she had a lust for life,
sometimes I think she wants to die.

She's dying, I'm crying
it's all up to you.
I'm hoping she's joking
the jokes on you.


SHE'S A GAS


SHE'S A GAS! (S.DAY)


She is my gasoline, she is my beauty queen.
She is my pussycat, when she says "love" that is that.

 She is the fuel in my fire, she's a gas
 and when I burn with her, I know I'll never last.

Ooooooooo Noooooo!

She is my modern witch, she makes my life O so rich.
She is my babydoll, and she has got it all.

 She is the fuel in my fire, she's a gas
 and when I burn with her, I know I'll never last.

Ooooooooo Noooooo!

She is my venus in leather, she is O so clever.
She is my atom bomb baby,and don't you know she drives me crazy.

She is the fuel in my fire, she's a gas
and when I burn with her, I know I'll never last.
             Ooooooooo Noooooo!
              I'm on fire !       (5x)


IF I SAID


IF I SAID (THE DARLING BUDS)

I don't know what to make of you,
you don't know what, you put me though...
I don't know what to say or do,
I don't wanna be, touched by you ....
touched by you ....

If I said a 1000 words, then all at once,
you take my breath away.
you don't know what you done to me
I can't make you, what you want to be
I don't know what Im trying to say.
I can't tell you in this way... in this way

If I said a 1000 words, then all at once,
you take my breath away.
and if I said a 1000 times the same old wines,
you take my breath away

I don't know what to make of you,
you don't know what you put me though
I don't know what to say or do,
I don't wanna be touched by you ....
touched by you ....

If I said a 1000 words then all at once you take my breath away.
Away..... away..... away....... away!!!!!!


FEELS SO GOOD


FEELS SO GOOD (S.DAY)


When you touch me it feels so good,
you know you make me won't to scream.
When you hold me tight in your arms.
I cannot believe this dream.
Floating on a cloud the birds sing so loud,
and I'm buzzing with the bees.
High in the sky past the elephants eye,
O won't you come ride with me.

*It feels so good &,
 It feels so good &,
 It feels like nothing,
 that Ive ever had.

Catch the sweet thing with the spider legs,
Oh when it rains it realy pours.
I taste the fruit dripping on me,
it never felt like this before.
I am drowning in such sweet surrender,
and you sing me a lulaby.
The blood from my heart reaches my brain,
Iv'e never been so high.

 It feels so good &,
 It feels so good &,
 It feels like nothing,
 that Ive ever had.

I taste the poison when I touch your lips,
the poison in your kiss.
This strange feelling has come over me,
I'm a gonna love you to death.
Dream angel won't you fly in me,
is that the devil in your eyes,
it feels so good when your touching my skin,
like I could almost die.

2 *(Chorus)



BABY'S GOT A GUN


BABY'S GOT A GUN! (S.DAY)


Well my Baby's got a gun, and I am so afraid,
thats she's gonna use it, and take me to my grave.
She told me that she loved me,
but now she's changed her mind,
she makes me think of murder,
but Im not the killing kind.

Yeah, I love her so.
Yeah, I've got to let her know.

Well I wait for her all day, she's always having fun,
I'll wait untill tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes.
Baby's got a switchblade,
and she's always in strife,
she tells me that she'll cut me up,
as I'm running for my life.

Yeah, I love her so.
Yeah, I've got to let her know.

I love my baby, and I hope that she loves me.
I love my baby, and its true O can't you see.
She's the only one in my life,
and I've got to let her know.

Well my Baby's got a gun, and I an in love,
even though she looks so mean she is my turtle dove.
She chases me all day,
sometimes we hold hands,
When she hits she kisses me.
O aint love Grand.

Yeah, I love her so.
Yeah, I've got to let her know.


THE EYEBALL MUTINY


THE EYEBALL MUTINY (S.DAY)


She said "It's over, this is the end."
That was just before her eyes,
jumped from her head.
Lying on the floor,
they grew arms and legs,
her eyeballs then ran away,
her body fell down dead.

Her eyes said
"We'll see you later,
We're going to see the world,
and I don't think that we'll be coming home."



IT'S OVER


IT'S OVER (S.DAY A.POLIN)


It makes me feel so sad when you say those things to me,
To think our loves lost gone for eternity.
It makes me feel so sad, it makes feel so cold.
Our love had been so right and now it seems so wrong.

It's over, It's over, It's time to start again
It's over, It's over, time to make a mends.
It's over, It's over, this is the end.

When I look at you, I feel O so sad,
When I think of all the thing we've never shared.
I always thought that we could live it to the end.
but then I knew that out of love it had to end.

It's over, It's over, It's time to start again
It's over, It's over, time to make a mends.
It's over, It's over, this is the end.

Then just to be with you makes everything seem right,
and just to have you near and hold you through the night,
It's gone wrong again and I hope that we can mend.
but I'm afraid this time it's gonna have to end...

It's over, It's over, It's time to start again
It's over, It's over, this is the end.
It's over, It's over, how can I start again ?


DEAD DOG STANDING


DEAD DOG STANDING (S.DAY)


A dead dog lies with the cats out on the mat,
watch me pull a rabbit from his hat.
I Oooooowa! A OooooHAI
A Happy little play toy puppet on a string.
She asks herself whats makes me do these things.

I Oooooowa! A OooooHAaa

Now your gone, I just don't know what to do,
Im so lonely, so lonely sitting here without you
I just wish I still had you on my side,
that you would since, how will my mind survive.

We're gonna take you on a holiday,
away from this place that you are so afraid.

I Oooooowa! A OooooHAaa

I wish I had everything I that Had Lost.
My in Innocience and to see things had no cost.

I Oooooowa! A OooooHA
Now your gone I just don't know what to do,
Im so lonely, so lonely sitting here without you
I just wish I still had you on my side
that you would since, how will my mind survive.

My world is spinning much to fast
 and Ive lost everything that I once had
Wontcha tell me what am I to do
can't you see that Im still in love with you.

A dead dog lies with the cats out on the mat,
watch me pull a rabbit from his hat.
I Oooooowa! A OooooHAI Oooooowa! A OooooHA

Now your gone I just don't know what to do,
Im so lonely, so lonely sitting here without you.
I just wish I still had you on my side.
that you would since, how will my mind survive.

Hhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrr.....
