Track Name: Temptation
Temptation

And it was at the turn of the century
Yeah for you it was time of misery
Then you say that you couldn't remember me
How could you have you'd already forgotten me

Ah temptation, ah frustration, revelation, bring it on

Oh I know that you never really really loved me
And I see that you never ever really cared
And you never really let me in ever
And you never really got to know me

Ah temptation, ah frustration, revelation, bring it on

Now for me you're a fading memory
Yeah you were just another night for me
Just another brazilian samba for me
Oh the regatta is blanking away

Ah temptation, ah frustration, revelation, bring it on

So we've come to the end of the story
Already it is getting way too long
Ever since I joined this punky punk band
I could never be your main man

Ah temptation, ah frustration, revelation, bring it on...
Track Name: Galapagos Twist
Galapagos Twist

I was a sinner, you were the truth
Hiding in your boots
Were you looking for absolution
Did you need a personal truce

Like a nightingale in a ponytail
Shot of whiskey
Wisp of smoke
Look into the palm of my hand
See what the future beholds

Take it further if you can
Take it further be a man
Well beyond the so-and-sos
Where the midnight goes

I was a sinner, you were the truth
I was the aching in your boots
I knew you wanted it though you denied
Who said the truth never lies

It was a soul night like a religion
It couldn't have been any other way you know
Everyone’s got a balloon to catch
You never know where it goes

Take it further if you can
Take it further be a man
Well beyond the so-and-sos
Where the midnight goes

I was a sinner you were the truth
I was admiring your ruth-
lessness in your resolution
Just one thing left for us to do

I pushed it further you pulled me in
I knew you 'd eventually sin
I've lived in bar towns in the low downs
I know how this ending begins

Take it further if you can
Take it further be a man
Well beyond the so-and-sos
Where the midnight goes

Where do we go tomorrow
Where do we go from here
What do we trade for the sorrow
Who do we blame for the fear

It was the ultimate revolution
If we could have only seen it through
You were the manifestation of treason
Left it all in the blue

Take it further if you can
Take it further be a man
Well beyond the so-and-sos
Where the midnight goes
Track Name: Be Kind to Animals
Be Kind To Animals

Wander into the forest,
Fitting in perfectly
Feeling like the great yeti-man,
In the mirror I still see an orangutan
Once I was a donkey
Man a funky junky lifetime monkey
Oh I'm tangled in myself

Oh I've got to go somewhere somehow...

I thought I was a bear,
Baby I don't have that much hair
Could have been a dolphin,
I just can keep up all that pumpin' n humpin'
I thought I was a pony,
I like em but I'm not em
And if I were a bird I could fly

I've got to go somewhere somehow...

Be kind to animals don't let them eat you
Be kind to animals, would you eat you?

I tried to be a man,
Baby I just don't understand
Better off being an elephant,
Who couldn't use such a trunk
I thought I was a beaver,
I like em but I'm not em
Hold on I think I'm swinging through

Oh I've got to go somewhere somehow...

Be kind to animals don't let them eat you
Be kind to animals, would you eat you?
Track Name: The Weather
The Weather

I hope the weather is nice today
I hope the weather is nice today
I say the weather was nice yesterday
I hope the weather will be fine today

The weather could be fine
The weather could be bad
The weather could be ugly

I hope the weather is nice today
I hope the weather is nice everyday
Don't tell me it always rains whatever you do
Don't tell me its always snows and you feel like a fool

The weather was never nice in my neighbourhood
The weather was terrible whenever it could
The weather was boring so I started to sing it in a funny way
The weather is not so boring when I sing it in a haha I am having so much fun kind of way

I hope the weather is nice today
I hope the weather is nice today
I hope the weather is nice in Mexico
Cause baby baby baby baby baby baby baby that is where I want to go

I love that slow Mexican feeling
I love that slow Mexican weather
I love that slow Mexican love song

I hope the weather is nice today
I hope the weather is nice today

Track Name: Ain't Got No Time
Ain't got no time

Ain't got no sleeping
Ain't got no night-time
Ain't got no daytime

Ain't got no self in the world
Ain't got no time for you
Ain't got no places in the world
Ain't got no time for you

Ain't got no reason
Sunshine
Sunburn
Moonlight
Moonshine

Ain't got no self in the world
Ain't got no time for you
Ain't got no places in the world
Ain't got no time for you

You've got to be it
You've got to try it
Don't got to know it
Just got to try it, try it, try it

I know I ain't got no time,
Ain't got no reason, not satisfied
Ain't got no time for you
Ain't got no reason to

Ahhhhhh...
Track Name: Take Me
Take Me

Won't you take me for a boat ride tonight
Won't you take me away on the sea tonight

Not a penny in my pocket,
Nothing to lose
No-one to care for,
Nothing to choose,
Nothing to gain from hanging around any more

Someday,
Some way,
Away on the mighty waves we will be
Dancing, smiling, loving,
You and me

Not a penny in my pocket,
Nothing to lose,
No-one to care for,
Nothing to choose
Nothing to gain from hanging around any more

Won't you take me on a little little boat ride tonight,
You pretty thing
Penniless though I may be,
Still I think you might see
There is something I might bring along

'Cause I got bom-ba-di-day-da-domm...
Track Name: The King is Dead
The King is Dead

They woke up from a midnight dream
Marked across the chest with a riddle
They never knew what it might mean
Coldness lives in sunshine
We used to think it all was left in the devils hands

To live on in fascination
Against the world a constant liberation

Only one to be had
Keep it hidden in your hands don't trust your fellow man
They'll be there, they'll be here
When you least expect them by your side
Always with a club in hand

To live on in fascination
Against the world a constant liberation

You were on to be resolved
What was once a fallacy now becomes reality
A puppet frees the webs in my mind, see the spiders as they climb
The truth will not be revealed to you, and certainly not to me

Oh the sadness that covers your eyes
Oh the sprinkles that spring from your smiles
Oh the badness that brings you down
The madness that is your crown

They are one, they are one,
They are one, they are one
Someday I know that you will come to accept
The more that you may know the less you actually get
The king is dead
Long live the knew king, long live the best head

Oh he is sailing away
Oh far away

Oh he is sailing away
Oh another day

I want to remember...
Track Name: Risus
Risus

Smiles on their faces
hands in their pockets
Look in the mirror
Teeth in the grin

You be the sculpture
I'll be the truth
What's left a victim
Then again it could be you or me

How does it feel to be me
How does it feel to be the one in the night
How does it feel to be waiting on the corner
Underneath the lamplight where we met

Hands on the corner of the mattress
Your fingerprints are stranded in my hair
All I've got to do is identify you and me
In all the mischief that we breed

How does it feel to be free
How does it feel to be the one in the night
How does it feel to be waiting on the corner
Underneath the lamplight where we met

Lies a dungeon in the shadow of a grating
Understood by no-one for free
Dust covered corners seep through darkness
Try to find a way to be real

How does it feel to be real
How does it feel to be the one in the night
How does it feel to be waiting on the corner
Underneath the lamplight where we met

Smiles in their pockets
Hands on their faces
Teeth now are hidden
The grin, the grin
The grin has gone away long ago...
Track Name: Sensi Mia
Sensi Mia

Send the whiskey send the lobster away
Make it better make a fuss face you'll pay
Call the doctors call the lawyers you may
Make it happen make us all be the same

There is something I just have to tell you
There is something I just have to say
You know you would never believe me
Don't let it go to your head

Sensi Mia...

Send the lefties and the righties away
Politicos not to do just to say
Machomanismo, feminismo hey hey hey..
I'm a pilgrim, take my grim pill today

There is something I just have to tell you
There is something I just have to say
Oh I know you would never believe me
Don't let it go to your head

A little IQ a little EQ behave
Analyze me hypnotize me I'll stay
Drink it up now have it all don't delay
Once in a lifetime twice in a past time you may

There is something I just have to tell you
There is something I just have to say
Oh you never would never believe me
Don't let it go to your head
Track Name: Dolores
Dolores

Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I'm waiting like a man
Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I hope you understand

Candy shop queen sugar baby now on the scene
I've been waiting for your love for so long
Under the table easy money mischief lurking don't you feel it honey
So it seems...

Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I'm waiting like a man
Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I hope you understand

Holy cow chocolate bunny red licorice fiend
Who knows where, who knows how long you've been
Gypsy jungle black bush mambo
Gone out for a midnight tumble
So it seems...

Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I'm waiting in the sand
Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I hope you understand

Simple fated little lady how about that dream
After all this time is this how it should end
Just when I think all is well
I turn around and what the hell
So it seems...

Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I'm waiting for your hand
Dolores where did you sleep last night
Dolores I hope you understand...
