Noon Barge

You've gotta wake up at nine
Gotta pack it into a suitcase
Then you'll take it up to the fourth floor
Pass it off to our man there
He's gonna take it through the blue door
He'll return through the red door
Hand you back the case
You'll have to walk it through the lobby
And keep a smile on your face

Noon barge

You gotta do what you gotta do to make a dollar
You gotta do what you gotta do to make a buck

You gotta stick to the side streets
Make your way to the cafe
Get a table by the rail
Have a cup a coffe with Mister Trim
He's there to verify the sale
Flip a tip to the waiter
Make your way down to the freight dock
Be exactly eight minutes early
The barge leaves at twelve o'clock

Noon barge

You gotta do what you gotta do to make a dollar
You gotta do what you gotta do to make a buck

Get your money from the crane operator
Get your money

Loser

You don't know where you're goin
You don't know where you've been
All you know is what you want
And you don't care nothin bout them

That's cause you're a loser, uh uh oh
Loser, uh uh oh

You don't follow any road signs
You don't let people merge in
You thought you own the whole frickin road
But let me tell you something my friend

I think you're a loser, uh uh oh
Loser, uh uh oh

You wear fluorescent clothes
You do things just to fit in
Of all the people in the world
You have the least number of friends

That's right!

Your a loser, uh uh oh
Loser, uh uh oh

Well I ain't that much better
I write songs just to complain
If I don't get a fucking life
I think I'll go outta my brain

And I'll be a loser, uh uh oh
Loser, uh uh oh

Undone

Well the windows are gone
And the doors are jamed up
Better clean them down
Before I turn up

Well I've come undone

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

When life is tragic
And pelicans too
Come out for dinner
And supper too
We'll cook some meatballs
And shoot some pie
And then we'll make sure that we die

Put on the attire rental face
Again

Acquire some shoe shine
And stir the cow
And then we'll write the Ching Te Tao
We'll wipe our shoes off
If we can find out how
We'll make our mama proud

Put on the attire rental face
Again

Eat some celery
And some beat feat
Steal the riches
Of your grandfather's heat
Eat my turkey
Or suffer the fate
Of the mexican man
And his burrito date

Cornershop

In a cornershop
The drinks flow hard
The days are long
The hours intense

Well they come and go
Never knowing why
Take it as it comes
Or a reason to fly

Take it as it comes

Three am
You know your way
In the middle of the week
In the middle of the day
Your friends hold hard
They sit at the seat
In the middle of the hour
End of the week

They don't know what
