FOREIGN KEYS
(Corwood 0749)

Spanish In Me
Well that’s the Spanish in me
Broke my neck until three
Stopped wonderin’ why
Kept lookin’ at the sky
Took a vacation whoah
What a thunderin’ blow
Blew me back from the sky
Broke my neck until four
Took a vacation whoah
Stayed away from that floor
Somewhere floating down
A river to Madrid
’Cause that’s the Spanish in me
Broke my neck until three
Broke my neck until four
Broke my neck until five
I was out there floating
Down a river to Madrid
Lookin’ at the sky
Spanish in me that Spanish in me that’s the
Spanish in me
Oh that river to Madrid

Lost Cause
Listen to me baby it’s a lost cause
Pretty Patty baby it’s a lost cause
And all of your friends are a lost cause
Everyone’s gone to the lost cause
Take off my shoes to the lost cause
Quit eatin’ food for the lost cause
Take it all back to the lost cause
Forget your life to the lost cause
Take off your shoes to the lost cause
Quit eatin’ food to the lost cause
Take it all back to the lost cause
Come on Jim Daley it’s a lost cause
Lost cause
Everyone’s gone to the lost cause
To the lost cause to the lost cause to
The lost cause to the lost cause to
The lost cause to the lost cause to
The lost cause

I admit I was wrong

But please don’t be so mean
Oh please don’t be so mean
Oh don’t you be so mean

Coming Quiet
(instrumental)

Needs No Sun
Dance white and winged steed
Ride on tonight star keyed
Bring down your fortune black
Jolt this body off the rack
Too soon I see the day grow dim
My fortune left this life for him
You are a bright star light my night
Beneath the purple fearful fright
From down the depths I spy a spade
Take the spade that you have made
Of all the fates I painted fast
To lay the body down to rest
Free a spirit from the wait
To find a love for your fate
A bird flies home to you today
He needs no sun to see the way
He did his best in years untold
Living in the dying cold
Fell into a hole so deep
Lay down there his soul to keep
Free me with your arms of steel
Grind me under your big heel
Well I found you cold at least
Tremble me all branded beast
Lest I leave a word unsaid
As I lie in my own bed
Take the rot of this my face
Take it to your black disgrace

Oh No
Oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh
Oooh
Ooh ooh
Oh no oh no

Some of Your Peace
Well you gotta throw it over if you expect to live
Don’t pick it up if you don’t even want to give
I’ve been livin’ this way for too long
And I know what you are tryin’ to do
All I want is a little bit of your peace
All I want all I want
Peace
Please give me just a little bit of your peace
Oh God I’ll be glad
Oh God oh God I’ll be so glad

Put It Away
I would personally like to say hello to you
Hello
Now you’re supposed to say hello to me please
Well when does it come
I’m so tired of waiting for your voice
God I’ve been waiting almost twenty years
And you just don’t seem to have any ears
Well I quit I quit
Because I’m too drunk to worry about your fears so
Why don’t you stop your foolin’ around with
Everybody you see
’Cause nobody’s worth anything not even me
All you can do is ride around
And you hope that someone calls you
Oh I’m through
I’m so through
Well I guess I would like to say goodbye
If I wanna waste my time

Ballad of Robert
Robert Robert Robert
Down at the halfway house house
Living down at the halfway house
He’s livin’ at the halfway house
The halfway house
You know the halfway house
It’s got a head full of steam
They put a cross on your back and you get real mean
Down at the halfway house
Let me tell you about
Robert ha ha at the halfway house
He got a cross on his back
He got roller skates and they’re hitched up to his feet
He moves up down the street on the roller skates
They’re from the halfway house
Ya’ know this man Robert
He’s a man he ain’t no mouse
He’s from the halfway house
Tell him
He’s from the halfway house
Now the doctor said good morning ha ha ha
And Robert looked up he had blisters on his fingers
And the doctor said Robert ha ha Robert he said Robert
You are at the halfway house the halfway house
He’s Robert from the halfway house
He’s from the halfway house

River to Madrid
Yes let them start for a while and then we’ll start
Well that’s the Spanish in me
Broke my neck until three
Started wonderin’ why
I kept seein’
The sky
Took a vacation whoah whoah oh oh oh
What a thunderin’ blow
Blew me back from the sky broke my neck until four
Took a vacation whoah
Stayed away from that floor
Somewhere floatin’ down a river to Madrid
Madrid
’Cause that’s the Spanish in me
Broke my neck until three
Broke my neck until four broke my neck until five
I was out there floating
Down a river to Madrid lookin’ at the sky
Spanish in me that’s the Spanish in me
Oh that river to Madrid
Oh I like that river to Madrid
Spanish in me that’s the Spanish in me
Oh that river to Madrid
