Peter, Paul and Mary had a couple of albums : one too many. So, I didn't purchase the whole collection and I didn't bother with the connection with Pete Seeger nor Bob Zimmerman. Didn't reason with Ornette Coleman. Tomorrow is still the damn question. Ruth Crawford was a wonderful woman. Went to the store, I took it to the floor and I told the clerk to give me some more of the Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. They had a thing going as long as it lasted. The thing about Burt Bacharach is that you shouldn't waste too much time on that. Dusty Springfield had as much sex appeal as a cooler with wheels. Now, Bruce Johnston man he had notion. I've seen boys on the television wear the same shirts everywhere they're going. Girls in boxers paper-duck bathing. Brian Wilson, what's his problem? Syd Barrett of the Pacific Ocean? Arnold Layne, now you know he's insane. He won't even come in when it's raining. A&M... got too many LP's. Gonna braid my hair like Gino Vannelli. Montreal is a city where to drive your car like it's 1973. Barry Manilow, I wouldn't go solo. Herbie Mann, come on clap your hands but I'd rather listen to Purple Rain. Prince, motherfucker you know he's the man.

Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy I told you once and I do believe you heard me Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy Change is coming your way but you won't see it Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy Carrying on our way to move onto the outside Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy Man is dead, it was even said he couldn't even lumber Busy in the way that most people seem to turn to these sorry days I raise my voice in a thunderous notion, combat noodle Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy Convince you to throw away the wire Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy Travelling under circumstances properly known as... Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy Cause to laugh at the disturbed with my hands up Don't follow in the steps of a human convoy Man is dead, it was even said he couldn't even lumber Let alone to self-help himself, it will never sell Your novel isn't worth it, you're not even in the circuit of the left alone Everything is made up, safe for you to wake up

C'est le jazz dans la rue, t'as pas tout perdu Tu n'as rien inventé, t'as pas de tenue Le jazz dans la rue, c'est sous-entendu Y'a les flics qui descendent sur ton Avenue C'est le jazz dans la rue, l'en ai convenu Ton papa, ta maman sont les bienvenus Le jazz dans la rue, quelque chose qui pue Caché dans le monde et Auld dans les buts Le jazz dans la rue C'est le jazz dans la rue, j'en ai marre du menu Offrez-moi quelque chose, Saunders j'en ai lu Le jazz dans la rue, je te passe en revue Sous le firmament, ennemi en sus Le jazz dans la rue C'est le jazz dans la rue, c'est si saugrenu Le jazz dans la rue

On Long Island beach I have fell in love with you I lost myself in the season of a dream and the dream was something I had never knew On Long Island beach I have fell in love with you I can't go on because the sun is strong On Long Island beach I have fell in love with you I had to swim in a river of Mountain Dew On Long Island beach I have fell in love with you I'm not sure if the drugs are working but I've been down and I would like to know why On Long Island beach I have fell in love with you An imaginary space, the morning looks like a pillow case fortified like a wet dream

I reek with self-esteem and you know it The only difference is : I don't bother showing it I reek with a lesser known gimmick You would probably take me out just to test it to the limit I reek with self-esteem and you know it You tricked me into stealing the part where I admit it The reason why I am over-medicated is to pressure up the horrors in the mirror of my contradictory open mindset Der frohliche, mein vater, wandersmann, das wandern schaffet frische lust Guten tag, wanderer, ein wanderbursche sein, froh singet stet mein mund, und schwenke, meinen hut I reek with self-esteem and you know it I will show you what I mean, don't bother with your quipping To repossess our land as we know it We must ordinarily take it back and redistribute it to the myth Weit in die welt hinein, warum singt dir das vogelein So freudevoll sein leid, d'rum trag ich ranzlein und dem stab, und mir steckt's auch im blut I reek with self-esteem and you know it The object of my call is to survey the market I realize that it's over in a minute The only way around is if you shovel snow above it I reek with self-esteem and you know it I feel strongly about the way you make me blow it I reach out for a letter of intrusion Suspicion is the key to my shooting straight an arrow

Now, the more I cheer the more my preferences veer from one team to the next Money matters equal sex In an artful manner, I piss upon your banner To judge it, consider opinions do falter I would like to appeal this Won't you do me a favor baby and do it again Now, the more I bring something newish to the table I just fail it like a fable in which tales of betrayal play in budgetary stereo One side of which is low I couldn't hear it from a distance so I needed some assistance Estimated plan, allow me to arrange Your interior life is strange The more I bleed I consider it's a lead Persuasion is a gift going upwards like a lift I have no one to whom anything to prove If we come to an agreement, does that make you feel less important? The more I leave the less it is I steal The more it is I fear the less it is I clear Won't you do me a favor baby and do it again I leer into the future and see nothing but intruders Most of whom just lack imaginative tact In troublesome relations, it's a misconducting nation with power-outed vision So, put it on a trial and test it to denial I get it from a mile, it's easy to be bribed So, send them gifts of money Yes, you sure will end up lonely but not without a story The colder that it is, every season's in a fizz Won't you do me a favor baby and do it again

I won't devote my time to the byzantine causes of your nature I've seen the meat fly high in your walking closet with no deposit Redirect it to the people you're with I won't devote my time to the byzantine causes of your nature I won't devote my time to the byzantine causes of your nature I've seen the world collide but I fail to see how it's all connected I won't devote my time I won't give you a dime even if you tell me the world is on the line of its seventy-second nervous breakdown

I have danced on the roof of the mountain and I oughtn't needed to I have seen stranger things before appear behind me I don't care to wish for anything I haven't acquired yet You've been told by some goddamned fools you needn't any love You need help yourself I have torn it down before and I'll do it again Off to the parade with the kids and the dogs and the balloons Bing Crosby was there staring back at me But I wouldn't have a thought / penny for him Neither less some clothes And I need a stitch in my brain for my thoughts are dirtier than you I have inflamed some groceries before and I'll do it again But you have no love for yourself nor have you respect for me But I can live without you, let's see if you can do the same In flames of disavow, give me the tools I need to escape from the world If I ever see you again in my living room, I will punch you in the throat and throw you out the window I don't care if it shatters my favourite piano Just go

On a holiday, I could take you away But you don't know you're Monday from your everyday On another day, in a Christian way I vote for myself You can take advantage of my mental image You can take it away but the profit will stay On the TV set, playing with the lions where the people come off with their hickory problems A fantasy, I indulge in the day Take care of your dreams The sound of delay On a holiday, I could take you away But I will never touch money

2000 indecisions and one outcome that leaves no one happy I used to be so serious, you're making me delirious Affected by things that otherwise would leave me indifferent 2000 definitions of one and only thing my brothers won't sing Disconnected on the intern, you're nothing I feel concerned about 2000 invitations to one and the same event, 2000 times sent I look into the yellow pages for some real friends Who are you gonna kill this time, girl? You know you shouldn't expect too much out of love Time rolling past, I'm growing older Wake up at last to see things unfolded 2000 indecisions and one outcome that leaves no one happy I used to be so serious, you're making me delirious Affected by things that otherwise would leave me indifferent 2000 definitions of one and only thing my brothers won't sing I wanna make it up to you for all the things that you make me wanna do If I redefine on someone else's time, I will creep back into your mind
