Brian Setzer Orchestra – Rockin’ Rudolph lyrics

BSO - RockinRudolph

ROCKIN’ AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumkin pie
And we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear voices singing
Let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with bought of holly

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dnacing merrily
In the new old fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear voices singing
Let’s be jolly
deck the halls with bought of holly

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancing merrily
In the new old fashioned way

 

YABBA-DABBA YULETIDE
Merry, Merry Christmas
And a happy holiday to you
If you’ve been good all year
Maybe Santa Claus will visit you

Bright lights on the houses down the street
Stockings full of all the Christmas treats
When you’re with the big band and the yabba-dabba yuletide
A happy sleigh ride, a Merry Christmas time

Bright lights on the houses down the street
Stockings full of all the Christmas treats
When you’re with the big band and the yabba-dabba yuletide
A happy sleigh ride, a Merry Christmas time
A Merry Christmas time

 

MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It’s the hap-happiest season of all

There’ll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There’ll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
Of Christmases long, long ago
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

There’ll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There’ll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
Of Christmases long, long ago

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
There’ll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It’s the most wonderful time
It’s the most wonderful time
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
ROCKABILLY RUDOLPH
You know Dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen
Common and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall the most famous Reindeer of all?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say
“Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then how all the reindeer loved him
And they shouted out with glee
Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say
“Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then how all the reindeer loved him
And they shouted out with glee
Rudolph the red-nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history”

 

HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS
Here comes S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A
Rudolph, Santa is on his way, S-A-N-T-A

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
Pullin’ on the reins
Bells are ringin’
Children singin’
All is merry and bright
Hang your stockings and say your prayers
‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A
Rudolph, Santa is on his way, S-A-N-T-A

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus lane
He’s got a bag that’s filled with toys
For boys and girls again
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle
Oh, what a beautiful sight
So jump in bed and cover your head
‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A
Here comes Santa is on his way
Gold Old S-A-N-T-A

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus lane
He doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor
He loves you just the same
Santa Claus knows we’re all Gods children
That makes everything right
So fill your hearts with Christmas cheer
‘Cause Santa Claus is coming tonight

 

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yule-tide gay
From now on our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

LITTLE JACK FROST
Little Jack Frost get lost, get lost
Little Jack Frost get lost
You know you don’t do a thing but put a bite on my toes
Freeze up the ground and take the bloom from the rose
Oh, Little Jack Frost go away, go away
And don’t you come back another day

There’s lots of cold feet all the lovers complain
You turned off the heat down on lover’s lane
The bench in the park is alone in the dark
So, Little Jack Frost get lost, get lost
Little Jack Frost get lost

So, Little Jack Frost go away, go away
And don’t you come back another day

There’s lots of cold feet all the lovers complain
You turned off the heat down on lover’s lane
The bench in the park is alone in the dark
So, Little Jack Frost get lost, get lost
Little Jack Frost get lost

LET’S SHAKE
Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)

Well, it’s a crazy little world
A crazy little world we’re living in
I never thought once about packing up and giving in
Sleeping all day and rocking all night

Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)

Well, pay day’s coming and my work is all done
Gonna dress real nice ‘cause my baby’s number one
Gonna rock a little bit
Gonna have a little fun

Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)

Well, I’m picking up my baby at half past eight
Knokcing on the door, “honey don’t be late”
She’s the one for me, she’s all mine
She ain’t nothing but fine, fine, fine

Dance with my baby
Shake it all night long
Shimmy those hips
Let’s get real gone
Me and you honey we can’t go wrong

Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)

Well, I’m picking up my baby at half past eight
Knokcing on the door, “honey don’t be late”
She’s the one for me, she’s all mine
She ain’t nothing but fine, fine, fine

Dance with my baby
Shake it all night long
Shimmy those hips
Let’s get real gone
Me and you honey we can’t go wrong

Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Let’s shake (shake, shake)

Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Rattle and Roll
Let’s shake (shake, shake)
Shake It All Over
Let’s shake (shake, shake)
A Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On
Let’s shake (shake, shake)
One, Two, Three Four

 

ROCKABILLY BLUES
When I was just a boy way back then
I just seemed to know it all, man, even back then
Gonna make people shout and clap their hands
I’m gonna play guitar in a rock & roll band

I never wanna stop it
I just want to rock it
Yes I do, oh yeah
And I can’t seem to shake them low down rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues

When I was seventeen I got this here guitar
We’ve had our ups and downs
But it’s gotten me this far
It’s made a lot of money
It’s been around the world
It’s been with me longer than any other girl

I never wanna stop it
I just want to rock it
Yes I do, oh yeah
And I can’t seem to shake them low down rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues

I never wanna stop it
I just want to rock it
Yes I do
And I can’t seem to shake them low down rockabilly blues, oh yeah

Baby I can’t fake it
I just just wanna shake it
Yes I do, oh yeah
And I never wanna lose them low down rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues
Rockabilly blues

 

VINYL RECORDS
Well, I got a girl called Flatfoot Sam
Went looking for a job down in Alabama
Well, the manager asked her what she does
Well, she checked the box that said “none of the above”

She plays vinyl records
45 RPM
Vinyl records
She drops the needle and spins ‘em again

Got all dolled up on a Saturday night
Went to see a little band that she really kinda liked
She was waiting on hearing her favourite song
But it didn’t sound right ‘til she put on

Vinyl records
45 RPM
Vinyl records
She drops the needle and spins ‘em again

Well, her friends all say there’s a thing of the past
Worn out records just don’t last
So she dropped on a 33 and a third
This time I’m gonna let it be heard

Just a little louder
Just a little louder
Just a little louder
Just a little louder

When you crank up the volume – My oh my
Nothing beats the sound of that old Hi-Fi
When the next big thing has come and gone
Just remember you can always put on

Vinyl records
45 RPM
Vinyl records
She drops the needle and spins ‘em again

Your vinyl records
45 RPM
Vinyl records
She drops the needle and spins ‘em again

 

LEMME SLIDE
I went out last night for a midnight drive
Next thing you know I’m doing a hundred and five
Police man pulls up by my side
Lemme slide man, lemme slide

I ran out of money, I ran out of gas
There’s a little station by the underpass
I explained to the man I ain’t got no cash
Lemme slide man, lemme slide

It ain’t that I ain’t got the fundamentals (yeah, you got them)
I just can’t seem to pay my incidentals (you ain’t got them)

I told a pretty gal I was a rock & roll singer
She was good looking man, a real humdinger
But I didn’t see the wedding ring on her finger
Lemme slide man, lemme slide

It’s such a compromising situation (yes it is)
I think I’ll leave and take a paid vacation (yeah, you wish)

When I got home she said, “where you been”
I said, “working and slaving just to pay the rent”
I’ll be sleeping in the dog house again
Lemme slide man, lemme slide
Lemme slide

 

NOTHING IS A SURE THING
I’m gonna hit the road
I’m gonna hit it hard
And if the wheels explode
Then it was in the cards
I get it while it’s hot
Could be the fix is in
Give me the longest shot
‘Cause nothing is a sure thing baby

I met a champagne blonde
Came on without a doubt
She waved her magic wand
And then the lights went out
Woke up a lonely man
I looked into the mirror
Her lipstick message read
“Nothing is a sure thing, baby”

Well, nothing is a sure bet
Nothing is a sure thing baby
When you think it’s automatic
Honey, someone sets you up for a fall
You’ll lose it all
Nothing is a sure thing baby

Well, nothing is a sure bet
Nothing is a sure thing baby
It’s a shady proposition
Listen to your intuition and go
Yeah, don’t you know
Nothing is a sure thing baby

Now trouble rolls around
And so you’re laying low
You oughta double down
Pop the clutch and go
I guarantee you this
You won’t forget the ride
Let’s seal it with a kiss
‘Cause nothing is a sure thing baby

Well, nothing is a sure bet
Nothing is a sure thing baby
It’s a shady proposition
Listen to your intuition and go
Yeah, don’t you know
Nothing is a sure thing baby

Well, nothing is a sure bet
Nothing is a sure thing baby
When you think it’s automatic
Honey, someone sets you up for a fall
You’ll lose it all
Nothing is a sure thing
Nothing is a sure thing baby

 

WHAT’S HER NAME
All my friends are telling me that I don’t seem the same
Since I went and broke up with what’s her name
Funny how her name doesn’t come to mind
But I seem to remember she’s the cheating kind

I gotta walk… run… get away from here
Because I just… might… drown in my own tears

I’m gonna buy a ticket on a westbound train
I’m going out a-looking for what’s her name
I’m going out a-looking for what’s her name

Well, I met her on the blind
Hell, I did it on a dare
She was long, lean and fine with her coal black hair
She could move on the floor
She could shimmy and shake
Just a look from her could make a cold hear break

I was too young… son… yeah for my own good
And then we parted… like I knew we would

But I don’t feel no pity, man, I don’t feel any shame
I don’t know what happened to what’s her name
I don’t know what happened to what’s her name

I gotta walk… run… get away from here
Because I just… might… drown in my own tears

I’m gonna buy a ticket on a westbound train
I’m going out a-looking for what’s her name
I’m going out a-looking for what’s her name
I’m going out a-looking for what’s her name

 

CALAMITY JANE
There’s a new girl in town everybody’s talking ‘bout
If you see her walking by
She’ll make you scream and shout
Don’t ask her for her number
‘Cause she’s the kind of girl
That can’t be tamed (aw, nah)

Ladies and gentlemen introducing
The one and only Calamity Jane

Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane

Well, she’s never dressed for concert
She’s always dressed in style
Whenever she’s on the move
It drives us poor boys wild
Whatever that girl is drinking
Two more, bartender
Just the same
It’s a pleasure to introduce you
Everybody welcome, Calamity Jane

Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane

Well, she don’t want your car or your money
She don’t want no fortune and fame
She always starts a commotion
Well, that’s why the gave her her name, Calamity Jane

She can rock out in the daytime and dance the night away
She don’t care what people think or what the fools might say
All the girls, they want to be her
All the guys, they want to meet her
Just the same
Well, it’s a pleasure, won’t you welcome
The one and only, Calamity Jane

Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane

Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane (Jane, Jane)
Calamity Jane

 

THE GIRL WITH THE BLUES IN HER EYES
Strange I remember
What I really should forget
Time is gone forever
That’s the one thing I regret
It’s time to say my goodbyes
To the girl with the blues in her eyes

Lost in those “if onlys”
There was nothing left to say
All my nights are lonely
And much longer than my days
I sing a sweet lullaby
To the girl with the blues in her eyes

She was the girl with the blues in her eyes
Too many tears brought by too many lies
I ride alone under threatening skies
And I guess it’s time to go

So I’ll say, “no worries”
Just to hide my worried mind
I’ll leave in a hurry
With a cloud of dust behind
I’ll sing a sweet lullaby
To the girl with the blues in her eyes

She was the girl with the blues in her eyes
Too many tears brought by too many lies
I ride alone under threatening skies
And I guess it’s time to go

So I’ll say, “no worries”
Just to hide my worried mind
I’ll leave in a hurry
With a cloud of dust behind
I’ll sing a sweet lullaby
To the girl with the blues in her eyes

 

STILETTO COOL
She’s got the look I like
She’s the one I want
Got her tight dress high
And her high heels on
Got a new tattoo dedicated to love
But how did she know that’s what I’m thinking on
I said, “baby, don’t try and mess with me
‘Cause I’m a real gone daddy from NYC”

She ain’t desperate but she’s up for it
Shes dangerous
She swings blade sharp
She’s Stiletto Cool… alright
Cool, Stiletto Cool, Cool

She’s a fine little kitten
Just hear her purr
Everyone of the boys takes a shot at her
Just look at her dance
She’s in the groove
While the band is playing I’ll make my move
Well I said, “sugar, you sure look fine”
She said, “daddy, take a number and wait in line”

She ain’t desperate but she’s up for it
Shes dangerous
She swings blade sharp
And I’m gonna get cut
She’s been up all night
And her hair’s a sight
She’s got her lipstick right
It’s a wild cat fight
She’s Stiletto Cool… alright

Well, a famous man
He once sang a song
He said, “you’ll be sorry baby, when I’m gone”
She said, “sugar, you just ain’t my cup of tea”
I said “baby, you’re my stick of TNT
You’re a rockabilly doll
That’s enough for me
‘Cause I’m a real gone daddy from NYC”

She ain’t desperate but she’s up for it
Shes dangerous
She swings blade sharp
And I’m gonna get cut
She’s been up all night
And her hair’s a sight
She’s got her lipstick right
It’s a wild cat fight
She’s Stiletto Cool… alright
Cool, Stiletto Cool, Cool
Stiletto Cool

 

I SHOULD’A HAD A V-8
Well, I said pretty baby
Hey we got a little money
So let’s go gamble in the morning
Let’s do it right
We’ll rock the night away
So I started up the car but we didn’t get far
We stalled right in the intersection
I knew it there and then when I heard the motor whine
It was way past trade in time

I gotta get a V-8, I gotta get a V-8
It’s the only motor ever made that never gets there late
You can get a little car if you wanna save gas
But I’m the kind of guy who likes to get there fast
I can’t wait
I gotta get a V-8
I gotta get a V-8

So I put out a feeler for a used car dealer
And I walked right into that showroom
He started out a-taking
Even ‘fore I got a-waking through the door
He made a direction for the latest selection
Of the greatest cars ever on offer
I really shouldn’t do it ‘cause I’m giving it away
There it is on the showroom floor

Well, it’s got a V-6, yeah, it’s got a V-6
It’ll save ya on gas
But it’s fast enough to get your kicks
It’s got plenty of power
Just look at her shine
Put 10 percent down
Pay the rest on time
How’s tricks
You gotta get a V-6
You gotta get a V-6

Well, he talked to fast and the deal sounded good
He hustled me right out of the showroom
He handed me a paper
Just sign it on the dotted line
He dangled the keys right in front of my nose
For $1500 you can take it
Any colour that you want you could drive it home today
The car is now all mine

You know what

I should’a had a V-8
I should’a had a V-8
It’s the only motor ever made that never gets there late
You can get a V-6 if you wanna save gas
But I’m the kind of guy who likes to get there fast
I’m late
I should’a had a V-8

I should’a had a V-8
I should’a had a V-8
It’s the only motor ever made that never gets there late
You can get a V-6 if you wanna save gas
But I’m the kind of guy who likes to get there fast
I’m late
I should’a had a V-8
I should’a had a V-8

 

BLUE LIGHTS, BIG CITY
Blue lights, big city, biy town
Were all too much
They chased my baby far away from me
Blue lights, big city, biy town
I knew as much they chased my baby back to Tennessee

Well, now she’s gone
And so I find I couldn’t change her mind
She promised that
She’d never leave and break the ties that bind

Blue lights, big city, biy town
Just ain’t her style
She went back home and now she’s gone from me

Blue lights, big city, biy town
I’d give it all
If I could bring my baby back to me
Blue lights, big city, biy town
Well, I found out
My baby’s never coming back to me

Well, now she’s gone
And so I find I couldn’t change her mind
She promised that
She’d never leave and break the ties that bind

Blue lights, big city, biy town
Well, I found out
My baby’s never coming back to me
Coming back to me
Coming back to me
She’s never coming back to me

 

COCK-A-DOODLE DON’T
Well, I got a hen that lays hard boiled eggs
There’s a pig in the pen that’s just a ham with four legs
The cows need a-milking and the chickens ain’t been fed
My rooster’s waking up
You just lay around in bed
I crow all night about it but baby you won’t
‘Cause when I cock-a-doodle do
You cock-a-doodle don’t

I cock-a-doodle do
And you cock-a-doodle don’t
I crow all night about it but baby you won’t
Just a little cock-a-doodling will do just fine
But you’re driving me out of my cock-a-doodling mind
I crow all night about it but baby you won’t
‘Cause I cock-a-doodle do
And you cock-a-doodle don’t

There used to be a time when I cock a doodle dooed
The chicks would come a-running and the cows would all moo
The fox is in the hen house and the feathers start to fly
There is a ruckus in the barn when I come strutting by
At five o’clock each morning the cock would start to crow
I would have flown the coop but how was I to know

I cock-a-doodle do
And you cock-a-doodle don’t
I crow all night about it but baby you won’t
Just a little cock-a-doodling will do just fine
But you’re driving me out of my cock-a-doodling mind
I crow all night about it but baby you won’t
‘Cause I cock-a-doodle do
And you cock-a-doodle don’t

The corn in the field is blowing in the breeze
And the leaves are all gone on the cottonwood trees
I can’t plow the dirt ‘cause it’s dry as a bone
And that run down shack is the place I call home
I’d live in the barn but baby you won’t
‘Cause I cock-a-doodle do
You cock-a-doodle don’t

I cock-a-doodle do
And you cock-a-doodle don’t
I crow all night about it but baby you won’t
Just a little cock-a-doodling will do just fine
But you’re driving me out of my cock-a-doodling mind
I crow all night about it but baby you won’t
‘Cause I cock-a-doodle do
And you cock-a-doodle don’t

 

YOU DON’T LOVE ME (bonus track for Japan)
You don’t love me
But you don’t even know that yet
You think you’re above me
But I ain’t done with you yet

You toss and turn
You can’t sleep at night
He’s a man you can never forget
You don’t love me
But we’re about to change all that

You didn’t know then
Driving in the black of the night
The roads are alive
And they’ll twist with the flick of a knife

You din’t see him coming
No way that you could
Blinded by the moon
And the thick of the woods
You don’t love me
Well, you just better think about that

You don’t love me
You don’t love me baby
You don’t love me
You don’t love me

I sit and watch
By the light of the silvery moon
But I can’t imagine
That you’re coming ‘round any time soon
With a flick of the wrist
And the twist of the blade
You wouldn’t live up
To that vow that we made

You don’t love me
You don’t love me baby
You don’t love me
Now you’re just gonna lay like that

Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot – Live From The Planet lyrics

BRIAN SETZER - LiveFromThePlanet

Note: since this is a live album, I am only adding the songs that have not been studio recorded

FOLSOM PRISON BLUES
I hear the train a comin’, it’s rolling round the bend
And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when
I’m stuck in Folsom prison and time keeps draggin’ on
But that train keeps movin’ on down to San Antonio

When I was just a baby my mama told me, son
“Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns”
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry

Well if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine
I bet I’d move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom prison, that’s where I want to stay
And I’d let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away

 

GREAT BALLS OF FIRE
You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much love drives a man insane
You broke my will but what a thrill
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

I laughed at love cause I thought it was funny
But you came along and mooved me honey
I’ve changed my mind, this love is fine
Goodness gracious great balls of fire!

Kiss me baby
Mmmm feels good
Hold me baby
I want to love you like a lover should
You’re fine, so kind
Gotta tell this world that you’re mine, mine, mine, mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I’m real nervous, honey, but it sure is fun
Love is good, I’ve changed my mind
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

Touch me baby
Ohhhhhh, feels good
Hold me baby
I want to love you like a lover should
You’re fine, so kind
Gotta tell this world that you’re mine, mine, mine, mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I’m real nervous but it sure is fun
I’ve changed my mind, this love is fine
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

Kiss me baby
Mmmm feels good
Hold me baby
I want to love you like a lover should
You’re kind, so fine
Gotta tell this world that you’re mine, mine, mine, mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs
I’m real nervous but it sure is fun
I’ve changed my mind, this love is fine
Goodness gracious great balls of fire

Monday, I’m at the union hall
Tuesday, I’m at the social ball
Wednesday, I’m at the road house inn
Thursday, I’m at the lion’s den
Friday, I’m at the chatter box
Saturday and Sunday, everybody rocks

Seven nights to rock
Seven nights to roll
Seven nights, I’m gonna show my face
With a different woman and in a different place
Seven nights to rock
Seven nights to roll

TROUBLE TRAIN
The trouble train is comin’
It’s been rollin’ through this town
Since I don’t know when
The trouble train they call it
And once you’re on it
You just can’t get off it my friend

Don’t get on that trouble train again
It’s rollin’ and thunderin’ round the bend
If you hear the devil call your name
Don’t get on that trouble train
(Trouble train, trouble train)
If you hear the devil call your name
Don’t get on that trouble train

The trouble train is comin’
It’s full of troubled souls
Who have gone astray
The trouble train is burnin’
It’s puffin’ smoke and fire
And it’s headed your way

Now don’t get on that trouble train
It’s a long way down
Please listen my friend
If you hear the devil call your name
Don’t get on that trouble train
(Trouble train, trouble train)
If the devil’s calling out your name
He’s riding on that trouble train

(Trouble train)

The trouble train’s left the station
It’s claimed another soul it’ll come back again
The trouble train’s damnation
It’s a one-way ticket to the fiery end

Don’t get on that train again
It’s a long way down
Please listen my friend
If you hear the devil call your name
Don’t get on that trouble train

Don’t get on that train again
It’s a long way down
Please listen my friend
If you hear the devil call your name
Don’t get on that trouble train

 

DEAD MAN INCORPORATED
I fell asleep in a cool cold sweat
I never anticipated
A man with a knife
Just lookin’ for a fight I never initiated
He whispered my name so calm and cool
He stood in the shadows and waited
I didn’t know what I had done
Should I run
My options were sure ill-fated

Is this real
I could feel
He was close
He was hot on my heels
If it’s a nightmare it’s way overrated
He told me that he worked for
Dead Man Incorporated

He told me I wasn’t the one that they want
I wasn’t the one they were chasin’
Somehow I just was along for the ride
I knew of the fate I was facin’
A man on the run and the smoke from his gun
Was somehow so strangely familiar
He said you’re a witness to a crime of my friend
And if they find you they’re gonna kill ya

Is a hunt
Is a chase
I was staring at a gun in my face
If it’s a nightmare it’s way overrated
He told me I was wanted by
Dead Man Incorporated

Tires were stretchin’
Bloodied hands were reachin’
And bullets were flyin’ right by me
Guns they were poppin’
Bodies were droppin’
To the violence there just seemed no stoppin’
Then somebody shook me
I swung as he took me
He said it’s a dream simply stated
The movie marquis out my window it read
Dead Man Incorporated

Is this real
I could feel
He was close
He was hot on my heels
If it’s a nightmare it’s way overrated
He told me that he worked for
Dead Man

Is a hunt
Is a chase
I was staring at a gun in my face
If it’s a nightmare it’s way overrated
He told me I was wanted by
Dead Man Incorporated
Dead Man Incorporated

 

KISS ME DEADLY
She came to me in early April
She came like late spring does sometimes
My heart was taken so like December snow
Frozen in the chill of winter time

But now they’ve taken early April
December’s coming back again
I feel the frosty morn
Now my baby’s gone
She just wouldn’t leave it well alone

She said kiss me deadly, don’t be sweet
Kiss me deadly, knock me off my feet
Kiss me deadly, turn up the heat
Kiss me deadly, kiss me deadly
Kiss me deadly, kiss me deadly

She wore dark glasses and a black rose
Was it perfume, I couldn’t tell
She wouldn’t hesitate
She wouldn’t intoxicate
Any kind of man that came her way

She’s not a girl you can hold on to
I got that feeling from the start
But I looked the other way
It’s haunting me today
I just couldn’t get enough of her

She said kiss me deadly, don’t be sweet
Kiss me deadly, knock me off my feet
Kiss me deadly, turn up the heat
Kiss me deadly, kiss me deadly
Kiss me deadly, kiss me deadly

She left me then in late October
We didn’t have too much to say
She had her mind made up
I guess that’s my tough luck
Letting my fool heart get in the way
You know I’m kind of glad it’s over
That kind of love can last so long
Don’t feel too bad for me
Yes, I heard the plea
I kissed her deadly, can’t you see

That I kissed her deadly, off her feet
I kissed her deadly, don’t be sweet
I kissed her deadly, turned up the heat

Kiss me deadly, don’t be sweet
Kiss me deadly, knocked her off her feet
Kiss me deadly, turned up the heat
Kiss me deadly, kiss me deadly
Kiss me deadly, kiss me deadly

 

GIMME SOME RHYTHM DADDY
Gimme some rhythm baby
Gimme some rhythm baby
I’ll take you out on the town
I’ll spin you around
Gimme some rhythm baby

Gimme some rhythm daddy
I don’t wanna chit chit chatty
I just wanna dance
And a little romance
Gimme some rhythm daddy

When we head out on the dance floor
I ain’t really askin’ for a lot
What more could I cry for
Show me all that rhythm that you got
Man

Gimme some rhythm baby, come on
Gimme some rhythm daddy
My heart starts singin’
And my feet do the swingin’
Gimme some rhythm daddy

I don’t want no mashed potato
I don’t want an alligator
Just give me a while with a crocodile
Gimme some rhythm daddy

Rutabags and tomatoes, what
Famous Idaho potatoes
Smoke collared greens and lima beans
Gimme some rhythm baby

With a GPS to guide us
We can find an internet café
We can share a little latte
With soy milk please
Because I’m lactose intolerant

Broadway and Radio City
Central Park is lookin’ mighty pretty
We’re stayin’ up late in the Empire State
Gimme some rhythm daddy (baby)

I don’t need a fortune teller
To tell me you’re a real sweet fella
Dancin’ round and round
To a big band sound

Smoke collared greens and lima beans
Hang a little while with a crocodile, with who
I need a little lift if you catch my drift
We’re stayin’ up late in the Empire State
Gimme some rhythm daddy (baby)

 

LONELY AVENUE
Lonely Avenue, nothing left to do
At least no, not with you
I took it kinda hard Lonely Avenue
Take a stroll when you get the blues
You’ll meet you don’t know who
When you take a walk down Lonely Avenue

The rain keeps comin’ down
In lonesome New York Town
I know you’re not around
But still I think I see
Your reflection in the glass
Is it too late to ask for one more round
A town this big I never knew
Could have a Lonely Avenue

Don’t you think that we could share
The memory of just one final laugh together
Don’t you think that there’s a chance
Our paths may never cross again
Don’t say forever

Lonely Avenue, man, I’m through with you
Your sidewalks are all cracked
All my memories are blue
I’ll cross another street
But first I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do
I’ll never walk again down that Lonely Avenue

Don’t you think that we could share
The memory of just one final laugh together
Don’t you think that there’s a chance
Our paths may never cross again
Don’t say forever

Lonely Avenue, man, I’m through with you
Your sidewalks are all cracked
All my memories are blue
I’ll cross another street
But first I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do
No, I’ll never walk again down that Lonely Avenue
I’ll never walk again down that Lonely Avenue

 

THE KING OF THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD
Boys, I’ve got the sign
The pieces fit, the stars align
Now the plans unfurled
We need the king
The king of the whole damn world

The punks on the street
They won’t know what hit ‘em
Their Italian suits man
They won’t ever fit ‘em
We’ll take ‘em down hard
They won’t know what bit ‘em
They can’t even find us

‘Cause we just out hid ‘em
I’m tellin’ you man
If you’re with ‘em, best quite ‘em
They can’t compete
‘Cause we’ll just outwit ‘em
It’s good to be king
King of the whole damn world

He walks by and people stare
He walks on air without a care
Listen up, just one more thing
This guy’s for real
This guy’s the king

We’ll strike late at night
We won’t stop till we find ‘em
We’ll hunt ‘em like rats
We’ll completely surround ‘em
We’ll chase ‘em, we’ll face ‘em
We’ll dog ‘em, we’ll hound ‘em
We’ll tighten the circle
Till the rope is around ‘em
A bullet I’ll take
For the thrill and the cause
We’re knocking out windows
We’re tearing down doors
It’s good to be king
The king of the whole damn world

We’ll strike late at night
We won’t stop till we find ‘em
We’ll hunt ‘em like rats
We’ll completely surround ‘em
We’ll chase ‘em, we’ll face ‘em
We’ll dog ‘em, we’ll hound ‘em
We’ll tighten the circle
Till the rope is around ‘em
A bullet I’ll take
For the thrill and the cause
We’re knocking out windows
We’re tearing down doors
It’s good to be king
The king of the whole damn world

When you lead a life like this
You take the shots, you take the hits
Listen brother, I know one thing
It’s good to be king
The king of the whole damn world

King of the whole damn world
The king of the whole damn world
King of the whole damn world
King of the whole damn world
King of the whole damn world
The king of the whole damn world

MY BABY DON’T LOVE ME BLUES
My baby she don’t love me
She’s never thinkin’ of me
I guess I got
My baby don’t love me blues

If it’s true what I’m thinkin’
She’s on the town slinkin’ all around
My baby don’t love me blues

Well, if I ever get to China
I’m gonna dig a hole to Carolina
I guess I’ve got
My baby don’t love me blues

I never said I didn’t need you
I only said I’d never leave you
I guess I got
My baby don’t love me blues

Now she ain’t never, never comin’ home
And I must stand all alone
I guess I’ve got
My baby don’t love me blues

 

LOVE PARTNERS IN CRIME
Someday, some way
I’ve got a place I wanna go
I don’t know where
I don’t know how
Someday, today
I wanna let you know
The time for us baby is now

Leave your troubles
And all your cares behind
Lovers together
We’ll fly on a dime
Someday, some way
I think you oughta know
We’re just love partners in crime

Sailin’ from star to star
Flyin’ high up in the sky
Love is a moolit night
Never ever kiss me goodbye

Here’s what I say
I know a place we gotta go
Give me your heart
Maybe you’ll find
Someday, some way
Baby, you gotta know
We’re just love partners in crime

Sailin’ from star to star
Flyin’ high up in the sky
Love is a moolit night
Never ever kiss me goodbye

Here’s what I say
I know a place we gotta go
Give me your heart
Maybe you’ll find
Someday, some way
Baby, you gotta know
We’re just love partners
Only just love partners in crime

 

PASSION OF THE NIGHT
Nighttime breaks and so does my heart
It’s beautifully broken in two
Darkness falls but the moonlight sparks
Longing and yearning for you
This is our story
Is this the glory of love
It’s hot and it’s right
It’s just the passion of the night

Spellbound hell-bound, what do I care
We all end up the fool
Chasing, facing the struggle ahead
A game without the rules
Is this our fight
Just what are we searching for
I’m ready to fight
For the passion of the night

So let it all crumble
Too late to be humble
As we stumble home in the dawn
Why are we running
Let’s both use our cunning
The two of us can’t be so wrong

Sun shines in rather tentatively
As almost if to say
Sorry to burst your bubble my friend
Your blues are here to stay
I’ll wait for the darkness
And think of the warmness of you

You know you can’t fight
It’s the passion of the night

 

DIMES IN THE JAR
Don’t you know baby
The faster you get there
The longer it takes you to leave
And ain’t it so
That the nicer they treat you
The more they’re inclined to deceive
So it goes baby I’m here for the long run
They told me to come as you are
I found a good one
She looks like she could run
She looks like a good one so far
Never got handed a dollar by no one
I earned every dime in the jar

She wants to catch you
And she wants to fetch you
And she wants to wrap you all up
Into a bundle, if you make a bundle of cash
You’re just plain out of luck
It starts out dandy
And she’ll give you candy
But that’s only part of the trap
She gets an attorney
And his name is Bernie
And he’ll string you up like a cat
Never got handed a dollar by no one
I earned every dime just like that

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin’
From dive bar to bar
Every dime in the jar
Comes from diggin’ and scratchin’
And stealin’ the gold from the starts
Please understand me
Ain’t nobody handing me
Dimes that I keep in the jar

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin’
From dive bar to bar
Every dime in the jar
Comes from diggin’ and scratchin’
And stealin’ the gold from the starts
Please understand me
Ain’t nobody handing me
Dimes that I keep in the jar

When I was a young boy
My daddy had nothin’
Momma would save every dime in the jar
Now mommas have nannies
And house cleaning spannies
And daddies will lose every time
They don’t save dimes now
Not even dollars
They don’t save nothin’ you earn
Now, I don’t know how
I’m sure in the end now
There’s some place
Where they gonna burn
Never got handed a dollar by no one
And here’s the lesson I learned

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin’
From dive bar to bar
Every dime in the jar
Comes from diggin’ and scratchin’
And stealin’ the gold from the starts

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin’
From dive bar to bar
Every dime in the jar
Comes from diggin’ and scratchin’
And stealin’ the gold from the starts
Please understand me
Ain’t nobody handing me
Dimes that I keep in the jar
Dimes that I keep in the jar
Dimes that I keep in the jar
Dimes that I keep in the jar

LONELY AVENUE – reprise – (bonus track for Japan)
Don’t you think that we could share
The memory of just one final laugh together
Don’t you think that there’s a chance
Our paths may never cross again
Don’t say forever

Lonely Avenue, man, I’m through with you
Your sidewalks are all cracked
All my memories are blue
I’ll cross another street
But first I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do
No, I’ll never walk again down that Lonely Avenue
I’ll never walk again down that Lonely Avenue

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN
You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

Oh, you better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m gonna tell you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So you better be good, better be good, better be good

Don’t shout
Don’t cry
Don’t pout
I’m gonna tell you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
That’s right here he comes

Is that what you brought me
What am I gonna do with a trombone

The kids in girl and boyland
Will have a jubilee
They’re gonna build a toyland
All around, rockin’ around the Christmas tree

You better not shout
You better not cry
Oh no, don’t don’t pout
I’m gonna tell you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus will be coming to town near you soon
