    Beethoven (I Love To Listen To)

    Take a girl like that
    And put her in a natural setting
    Like a cafe for example.
    Along comes the boy
    And he’s looking for trouble
    With a girl like that
    With a girl like that.
    Who knows what they’ll decide to do.
    Who knows what they’ll get up to.
    I’d love to know.
    Wouldn’t you?

    I love to listen to Beethoven…

    You think you know just what you want
    But you have used that weapon against me.
    Did I tell you I was lying by the way
    When I said I wanted a new mink coat.
    I was just thinking about
    Something sleek
    To wrap around my tender throat
    I was dreaming like a Texan girl
    A girl who thinks she’s got the right to everything.
    A girl who thinks she should have
    Something extreme.

    I love to listen to Beethoven…

    I've Got A Lover (Back In Japan)

    I’ve got a lover back in Japan
    He’s got tatooes
    He’s my Superman
    I try to call him up from time to time
    We can talk about the weather
    Is the weather fine?

    And I say break, break
    Break away those ties
    Break, break.

    I’ve got a lover
    Up in outer space
    He’s been tumbling around
    All over the place
    I like to call him from time to time
    We can talk about heaven…

    Break, break
    Break away those ties
    Break, break…

    When the whole world descends on me
    I’ll be waiting for you…

    Got another lover in Timbuktu
    Got a name for him
    He’s my little guru.
    When I don’t call him he starts to cry
    I have to tell him stories just to pacify.

    Break, break…

    When the whole world descends on me
    I’ll be waiting for you…

    I was bitter when I met you
    I was eloquent with rage
    Like honey from a poisoned cup
    I flowed from stage to stage.
    (Ooh… sugar baby… sing me a lullaby.)
    Japanese baby…

    Do You Want To Break Up?

    Yea… oh yea… yea…
    Do you want to break-up?

    I’ve got a heavy heart
    Got heart filled full of lead.
    Pocket full of heartache
    (Car crash in my head).
    I’ve got a steady hand
    Gonna lead me to my home.
    Take me up to heaven
    (Heaven’s where I’m goin’)…

    Yea… oh yea… yea…
    Do you want to break-up?

    I’ve seen trouble
    I looked right up to its face
    Never tried to turn away.
    And I’ve been sad
    I’ve been overjoyed
    So let me disembrace you now
    My little trouble boy…

    Yea… oh yea… yea…
    Do you want to break-up?

    You took me to the ocean
    Dropped me like a stone.
    Took me to the deep blue ocean.
    I don’t wanna stay there baby
    I don’t wanna swim alone

    Yea… oh yea… yea…
    Do you want to break-up?

    You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart

    Take me to the desert
    Where there’s got to be
    A whole heap of nothing
    For you and me
    Take me to the desert
    Take me to the sand
    Show me the colour of your right hand.

    Love is a temple
    Love is a shrine
    Buy some love at the five and dime
    A little bit of love
    From the counter store
    Get it on credit if you need some more.
    I’ll be the figure of your disgrace
    A criss cross pattern upon your face
    A woman’s just too tired to think
    About the dirty old dishes in the kitchen sink.

    I wish I was invisible
    So I could climb through the telephone
    When it hurts my ear
    And it hurts my brain
    And it makes me feel too much
    Too much too much too much.
    Don’t cut me down
    When I’m talking to you
    ‘Cause I’m much too tall
    To feel that small.

    Love is a temple
    Love is a shrine
    Love is pure
    And love is blind
    Love is a religious sign
    I’m gonna leave this love behind.
    Love is hot and love is cold
    I’ve been bought and I’ve been sold
    Love is rock and love is roll
    I just want someone to hold.

    Shame

    Now there’s a lifestyle
    With painted lips
    Now there’s a lifestyle
    Everybody wants it
    But it don’t exist
    And I said shame…

    In the dancehalls and the cinema
    Shame
    On the TV and the media
    Shame
    We loved you

    Now there’s a lifestyle
    With fashion chic
    Now there’s a lifestyle
    Everybody in it wants
    To be elite
    And I said
    ‘You with yer brand new shoes and
    You with yer greasy hair and
    You with yer mother’s pride and poetry
    Don’t you want to feel the shame?”…

    In the dancehalls
    Can’t you feel the shame?
    And the TV
    Can’t you feel the shame?
    We loved you…
    Shame
    In the dancehalls and the cinema
    Shame
    On the TV and the media
    Shame
    We loved you
    At the Lido and the opera
    Shame
    At the races
    And the theatre
    Shame
    We loved you.
    And they said all we need is love
    All we need is love
    With the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
    Day after day
    Day after day.

    Savage

    Words of power are killing me
    While the sun displays its teeth.
    All mockery is laughing
    All violence is cheap.
    She said…
    “These are my guns
    These are my furs
    This is my living room.”
    “You can play with me there sometimes
    If you catch me in the mood.”
    Savage
    Savage
    Savage
    You savage…

    She said…
    “I have this unhappiness
    To wear around my neck.”
    “It’s a pretty piece of jewellery
    To show what I protect.”
    She said…
    “Everything is fiction
    All cynic to the bone.”
    “So don’t ask me to stay with you
    Don’t ask to see me home.”
    Savage

    You savage…

    I Need A Man

    I don’t care if you won’t
    Talk to me
    You know I’m not that kind of girl.
    And I don’t care if you won’t
    Walk with me
    It don’t give me such a thrill.
    And I don’t care about the way you look
    You should know I’m not impressed
    ‘Cause there’s just one thing
    That I’m looking for
    And he don’t wear a dress.

    I need a man…
    I need a man…

    Baby baby baby
    Don’t you shave your legs
    Don’t you double comb your hair
    Don’t powder puff
    Just leave it rough
    I like your fingers bare.
    When the night comes down
    I can turn it round
    I can take you anywhere.
    I don’t need love
    Forget that stuff
    You know that I don’t care

    I need a man…
    I need a man…

    I don’t need a heartbreaker
    Fifty-faced trouble maker
    Two timing time taker
    Dirty little money maker
    Muscle bound cheap skate
    Low down woman hater
    Triple crossing double dater
    Yella bellied alligator…

    I don’t care if you won’t
    Talk to me
    You know I’m not that kind of girl.
    And I don’t care if you won’t
    Walk with me
    It don’t give me such a thrill.
    And I don’t care about the way you look
    You should know I’m not impressed
    ‘Cause there’s just one thing
    That I’m looking for
    And he don’t wear a dress.

    Put The Blame On Me

    Take me to a dark room
    And hug me to bits
    I just wanna be kissed so badly
    Right there
    On my lips…

    Put the blame on me
    Put the blame on me

    Why did you close your eyes
    When I’m the one that’s blind?
    Why did you close your eyes?
    That was too unkind…

    Where are you tonight?
    Are you sleeping on your own?
    I need to know
    Where you are tonight?
    Are you sleeping on your very own?
    Tell the one that’s lying with you
    To get right up and go back home.

    Put the blame on me
    Put the blame on me…

    That’s right…

    Heaven

    Just what you need

    Heaven

    Takes a little time

    Wide Eyed Girl

    She was a wide eyed girl
    In a purple dress
    She could have been good
    She could have been the best
    Shy little girl
    When it came to the test
    Wow oh…
    She was a cut above the rest.
    She was a wide eyed girl
    With teased up hair
    She could have had money
    But she didn’t care
    She was looking for you daddy
    …Never there
    Looking for you daddy oh yea yea

    Wide eyed girl

    She was a wide eyed girl
    Of a tender age.
    Just moving out of her sensitive phase.
    She said
    “I love you baby it’s for always
    And I don’t care what the teacher says.”
    When she walked out
    Through the streets of Rome.
    All of the Italians wanna take her home
    All the brown little babies
    With the slicked back hair
    Sayin’ “Prima amore… wow!”

    “I’m sayin’ something
    Are ya listening to me?”
    “Don’t you walk away when I’m
    Communicating with you!”
    “She’s goin’ clickin’ clackin’
    Down the road in them high heeled shoes”!
    “Mona Lisa!!!”

    I Need You

    I need you to pin me down
    Just for one frosen moment.
    I need someone to pin me down
    So I can live in torment.
    I need you to really feel
    The twist of my back breaking
    I need someone to listen
    To the ecstacy I’m faking.
    I need you you you

    I need you to catch each breath
    That issues from my lips
    I need someone to crack my skull
    I need someone to kiss.
    So hold me now
    And make pretend
    That I won’t ever fall
    Oh hold me down
    I’m gonna be your baby doll

    I need you you you…
    Is it you I really need?
    I do I do I do
    I really do
    I need you…

    Brand New Day

    Six o’clock in the morning
    And I’m stepping through the streets
    The pavement’s cold and empty
    Got the blues beneath my feet.
    Big old sun is rising up
    So elegant and thin
    Another day is over
    So a new day will begin
    And the word said hey…
    It’s a brand new day

    Oh baby baby baby
    I dreamed about you
    Please tell me tell me tell me
    What I’ve seen could not be true
    You have taken my existance
    You have filled it full of stones
    You have turned into a stranger
    Now I need to walk alone

    But I won’t be sad
    But I won’t be destroyed…

    And the word said
    Hey… it’s a brand new day.
