he slider

~~~~~~~~~~ I could never understand the wind at all was like a ball of love I could never never see the cosmic sea was like a bumblebee And when I'm sad I slide I have never never kissed a car before it's like a door I have always always grown my own before All schools sre strange And when I'm sad I slide I have never never nailed a nose before That's how the garden grows I could never understand the wind at all was like a bull of love And when I'm sad I slide Watch me now, I'm gonna slide

aby boomerang

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Slim lined sheer faced Angel of the night Riding like a cowboy In the graveyard of the night New York witch in the dungeon of the day I'm trying to write my novel But all you do is play Baby Boomerang, Baby Boomerang You never spike a person But you always bang the whole gang Mince pie dog-eye Eagle on the wing I'm searching through this garbage Looking for a friend Your uncle with an alligator Chained to his leg Dangles you your freedom Then he offers you his bed It seems to me to dream Is something too wild In Max's Kansas City You're a belladonna child Hiding on the highways On the gateways to the south You're talking with your boots And you're walking with your mouth Thank you ma'am

Spaceball ricochet

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm just a man I understand the wind And all the things that make the children cry With my Les Paul I know I'm small But I enjoy living anyway Book after book I get looked Everytime the writer talks to me like a friend What can I do we just live in a zoo All I do is play the spaceball ricochet Deep in my heart there's a house That can hold almost all of you I brought a car it was old but kind I gave it my mind and it disappeared I love a girl she's a changeless angel She's a city it's a pity that I'm like me I said how can I lay when all I do is play The spaceball ricochet, Oh baby, the spaceball ricochet, Oh mama, the spaceball ricochet

Dandy in the underworld

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (A Bolonic revision of Orpheus Descending) Prince of Players, Pawn of none, Born with steel reins in the heart of the Sun Gipsy explorer of the New Jersey Heights, Exalted companion of cocaine nights Cos he's a Dandy in the Underworld, Dandy in the Underworld, When he will come up for air, will anybody care At an old eighteen exiled he was To the deserted kingdoms of a mythical Oz Distraction he wanted, to destruction he fell, Now he forever stalks the ancient mansions of Hell Now his lovers have left him and his youth's ill spent, He cries in the dungeons and tries to repent But change is a monster and changing is hard So he'll freeze away his summers in his Underground yard

rimson moo

~~~~~~~~~~~~ (The beat of bondage stalks on) Hey little girl you move so fine, All I want to do is melt your mind Under the crimson moon, Under the crimson moon I wanna feel your heat under the crimson moon I wanna feel your heat under the crimson moon You can shake your torpedos, you can shoot your gun, you can mix your martinis from the blood of the sun I'm a charteuse lover, I'm an indigo man, In the black of the night I'll hold your lily white hand


~~~~~~~~ (Interplanetary Waltz) Hey there sister, let's face the Universe and dance Hey there sister, let's face the Universe and dance We'll bop over the galaxies, we'll stroll over to Mars We'll romance on Jupiter, make love among the stars If you really love me sister let's face the Universe and dance

I'm a fool for you, girl

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (A fool's lament is the wise man's milkshake) I'm standing winding staircase, seven eagles long Misty planet creature, how could I kiss you wrong? The poet wished upon a star and dazzling bright is what you are, I'm a fool for you, girl Dipping dancing diving, lipstick of the brave Sullen Garbo sire, your body's all I crave Hot baby I'm a fool for you

I love to boogi

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (A cross between Ramon Navarro and Marlene Dietrich) Belinda Mae Fenders got a Cadillac bone, Jenny lost her cherry walking all the way home, The passions of the Earth blasted her mind, Now she's neat sweet ready for the moon base grind You rattlesnake out with your tailfeathers high, Jitterbug left and smile to the sky, With your black velvet cape and your stovepipe hat, Be-bop baby the dance is where it's at I love to boogie on a Saturday night

Visions of domi

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (Her love is hot, but mine is not) This woman is a perfumed breeze, Greek Gods recline upon her knees I'd freeze the sun to kiss her ear, It all makes up the vision I call Domino, It all makes up the vision I call Domino, Right now A suit of doubt she gave to me, In return I cried a sea Of poet's tears and something more, I camped outside her velvet door Love's a freak and it moves fast, My marble dreams it could not last Now every time this girl I see She tries to chain me to her tree

Jason b. sad

~~~~~~~~~~~ (A distant boyfriend of Johnny B. Good) Jason B. Sad was a lonely lad, His head was a bed for everyone His clothes was his life but his heart was knife Inscribed on it was "rock'n'roll is cruel" Take me to school, boy, leave me alone, boy, Slice me a bone of the Universe Jason got weird and he pierced his ears, A gypsy alone in his gallantry He met Shakey Sue, who wore only blue And they shared in their teen-age misery Then Jason read books and wore hard looks, He swapped Blue Sue for an artisan, His winters were long and a fantastic song, Grew from his head like a marigold

Groove a littl

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (To groove is to lubricate your imagination) You can call somebody captain, Under pressure you can flip You can be a rock commando But you can't pilot the ship Groove a little baby, groove a little now Groove a little baby, you might know what you want But I'll show you how You can trip the light fantastic Become a space grotesque You can fossilise your thought dreams Behind a rusty desk You can read the works of Shakespeare In the Academy of Life You can punk the skunks of freedom With your jewelled Etruskian knife

he soul of my suit

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Well you damaged the soul of my suit, You pulled my love out by the roots, But I'm not such a bad boy - Oh No You ravished the runes of my tunes, You put on the gloves of my loves, But you're not a bad girl - Oh No Rock and rolled it Even strolled it, baby Rock and rolled it, yeah I love you, yeah


~~~~~~~~ (Play in a loud cloud) When I'm down you bring me up, babe When I'm up you bring me down I'm such a contradiction - I'm just hung-up Get off my back and leave me Oh shit, let's get it on I'm such a contradiction - I'm just hung-up Everything is sweet babe, Then everything is the pits You love me then you leave me, How come you always pick the hits?

ain and lov

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (A punkoid opera in C flat and razor sharp) We have travelled pain and love To call ourselves high born Living in a maze so crazed, lunacy is legend Lunacy is legend Words I fear that clutch my crutch And drive your sences crazy Men or women too get blue, so don't make living hazy No don't make living hazy Once in youth the wisdom crouched Deep inside my bedroom Visitations now are scarce, winter life is lonely Now winter life is lonely Temples that are bleak and bleached Are beached up on the highway God of truth returned just once and made my prison homely, Don't make my life so lonely

een-riot structur

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Teen-riot structure, ankle deep in fear, Babies lost in bellies and the oracle can't hear A demon angel demi-god blasted through the night Me and Lucy Lightning holding on real tight An ancient Lord in wonder rung upon my bell, I fed him with my nightmares and he ate my dreams as well All London was in blazes burning to the sound Of deep galactic tragedies, in stereophonic sound A tempest teen of stature in Gatsby hat and cloak, Licked upon my lollipop, but I didn't get the joke, As devastation mounted my wardrobe almost burned The teens held hands on shifting sands and wonder what they learnt
