Time and Space
He said show up wearing either black or white
I looked at my clothes and I see
Ahhh they was all black
They carried my clothes in on coffins
You said yeah
Put them in the closet
Oooo time
Ohh space
He wound a silver thread around my neck
I looked around and thought oh ahhh
Land sakes
They farmed all the oranges in Florida
You said just put them in the closet
Oooo time
Ohh space
He brought a lot of phony eyebrow pencils
I hid behind ahh oooo electric fence
Ahh they brought all the jellyfish from Ireland
Whew Ireland
You said aw just put ’em you know where
In the closet
That’s where
In the closet
Oooo time
Ohh space
He said show up either
Wearin’ black or white
I looked at my clothes
They were all
All black
They carried in my clothes on coffins
Ahh ahh you just said put ’em in the closet
Oooo time
Ohh space

The Cat That Walked From Shelbyville
For today I’ll smoke a cigar
For today I’ll play your guitar
For today I’ll be real nice
For today I’ll cut you thrice
For today I’ll cup your eyes
For today make no disguise
There’s a blanket for your doctor
There’s a full-fledged man o’ war
There’s ink spots on your jersey
Ahh scuff marks on the floor
For today smoked a cigar
For today you felt real cool
For today you wore a blue shirt
For today you wore some old brown shoes

Quinn Boys II
Did you ever go down to see the Quinn boys
When I walked outta there I went awwwww
Meet you in the Bowery
Goodbye Beacon Hill
Hello misfortune I’ve got time to kill
Time to kill
I’ve got time to kill
Spend all of my days roaming the ways
To live and see the sun
See the moon in dark June
Kiss the sand and ocean salt
Take my brother by the hand
It’s you
And I demand

The Way That You Act
As a matter of fact
It’s the way that you act
As a matter of well
It’s customary
It was the real pie
I got it all in the eye
Ohh ahh
Francesca she told me
Whoah she wanted to hold me
I laughed to myself
It’s all on the shelf
Ahh it burns and I smoke it
It eats worms and I choke it
Ahh ohh ahh
Finally he cried louder
Ahh I wanna be outer
I wanna be outer
I wanna be outer
Ahhoh
I wanna be outer
Ohh
Ohh
Ohh
Ohhhhhh I wanna be outer
Ohh
I wanna be outer
Oooo ahhh
ohh I wanna be outer
Ahhh oohh ohh
Ohh
I wanna be outer
Ha

I Know The Times
Ohh what’s that
What’s that
Ohhh
I, I know that the times
Ahh we spent together
Weren’t always meant to be
Oooo the voices outside that we heard so clearly
Weren’t meant for us to hear
Though it’s true our words were few
Were few
An everlasting moment
Grew to be
Listen to the other side of life
Ahh listen don’t turn back the tide of life
If I should go and try to find
Only thing that’s on my mind
Each and every day I dream a dream
In which I don’t return
But I can never feel the threat
No never feel the threat of losing
Anything I get for free
So listen to the other side of life
Listen don’t turn back the tide of life

When the Telephone Melts
When the telephone melts
And it’s still ringing your name
When your shoes got holes
And the sidewalk’s not the same
And you’re falling down
Then you can think about your mother
Yes and you can think about your friends
But you can’t blame me for not being around
You know I told you long ago
Before you grew so old
That I wasn’t made for claws fallin’ on my face
I say you knew it was a jungle
And I was a man
Had a place to go
If you can’t go with me
Then I just don’t know
But I’m wild about your humor
When you laughed in my face
You ohh you know I didn’t mind
When you stood on my head
And then I turned the tables ‘round
I thought it just another day
Ahh I thought you saw it my way
But oh to my surprise
There’s a difference in your eyes
And I find it hard to find you
Say you want an ashtray
Say you think you found the way
Well you can joke about me baby
Yeah you can say my name in vain
Say my name in vain

War Dance
It’s all goin’ to the war path ohh
I swear I must be part Indian
Ridin’ to a war path
Moon go down
Dance of death
Run around the red fire
Thump thump thump thump
War dance all night long
War dance all night long
War dance all night long
Sun give us the strength to live
Moon bring our path back home
Oh moon give us stealth
Ahh oh rain flow like their blood
Ahh rain flow like their blood
At the pierce of our spear
At the pierce of our spear
