Track Name: All Night Long
(Verse 1)
Cut me loose,
Let me go wind me up and bring it back
Lemme tell you it was
All Night Long
She was bangin' on my walls
Tearing at my sheets and grabbin' on my two'
Too good to be true woah pretty heavy to explain.
How the ruby red freckle face kid get me goin'
with the hips in such a quick way.

(Chorus)
She got me goin'
All Night Long


(Verse 2)
I can't exactly explain the way that she take her
Lips do the same the rhythm to make sure
Keepin' the beat, she got the feet to make it ride
Hit the notes just right
Go, Go get her,
Couple drinks she'll be loose with the sweater.
Pull on a thread then go get her to the couch,
followed by a wink of the teeth then mouth
got me goin' down south.

(Chorus)
She got me goin'
All Night Long
Track Name: Half Fool
(Verse 1)
Life is a gamble better scramble for your poker chips,
growin old, take advantage make the most of it.
Get high, hide the money and run
should save it for the booze,
the women and fun well.
Might as well wait till it's too late,
because dreams are better come arounds when sleep is the one that is late.

Verse (2)
And I'll be fine for a fool.
Calling all my bottles half fool.
Give myself the night I'll be drinkin' till the light,
as long as my glass is half fool in my mind.
Track Name: A Sailing Problem
(Verse 1)
Head to the corner down by Main street.
Capital place I need to,
find myself another thing to drink,
hopefully my shoes will be good to do what,
ever they damn want to. Hope to loose me in the,
big blue water.

Ain't be what I'm after I'm just looking out to capture,
sail my way down to the alley,
dock my boat then trash a taxi,
I need to take me to that place where all them sailors get them drinks.


(Chorus)
It's the drinking town with a sailing problem
Oh I know I know you got one
Annapolis

(Verse 2)
City Dock I will be crashin' living out of passing out of laughin'
Yo Ho and a bottle of Jack. Well how bout that.
And if I'm bored I'll be in Eastport off the bridge and sinkin' deep boy.
Hippy Hashin' playground passin' sweet tea,
I need to find myself another one of them captains to,
fix me another drink.
Could you point me towards the harbor?
I need to dive into the water.


(Chorus)
It's the drinking town with a sailing problem
Oh I know I know you got one
Annapolis
Track Name: American Spirits
(Verse 1)
I got my, feet on the couch.
Yea i'm breaking all the rules.
I'm gonna untie up my tongue.
And we'll see who my words choose.

I got hardly any money,
oh but boy I do got friends,
this world is just to fucked up,
To see the values of these mends.

(Chorus)
So sit back, relax and drink some.
I got three glasses towards my freedom.
And I'll be halfway there,
when i'm sleeping on the stairs,
We got tonight to know, so let me go.

(Verse 2)
Then we, die by the dollar.
Every day making it harder.
But no one seems to get much
smarter.

So call a scientist from the academy,
to tell me the world is running shit to breath.
No telling your forgetting.
You're just having too much fun.

(Chorus)
So sit back, relax and drink some.
I got three glasses towards my freedom.
And I'll be halfway there,
when i'm sleeping on the stairs,
We got tonight to know, so let me go.

(Chorus)
So sit back, relax and drink some.
I got three glasses towards my freedom.
And I'll be halfway there,
when i'm sleeping on the stairs,
We got tonight to know, so let me go.

I got my feet on the couch,
yea I'm breaking all the rules.
Track Name: Good Taste
(Verse 1)
I'll go pick the money tree
buy a couple thrills,
pass a round of sleep while you pass the pill.
Hitting the bottle more than two times a weekend,
Pack of cigarrettes and a little bit of weed man.

Ice kid gimme' something real smooth,
cup with a kick, with a couple of ice cubes
to, to the groove, old to the movement,
new to the tune but old to the music.

And the funk done hit gone and split my lip,
took my tongue,
then stole my little lady.


Smacked slap hello, hi my mind.
This spinning room is boozin' blind.
It's binge kissing the cool kids time,
picking out tonights good I've been wrapped and rolled in,
packed and sold in,
whatever they've been passin' no no
no .

(Chorus)
We gonna trash this house tonight!

(Verse 2)
In the porch down by the basement
drinkin' whatever they been makin',
naked my eighth hour of fakin'.
This love is all I'm tasting it taste good.

Ohh and it feels so good.

(Chorus)
We gonna trash this house tonight!

(Chorus Repeats)

(Verse 3)
I wanna see you move to my groove,
get your shoes in motion move to my room-
remove your shoes and coat then lover in the covers better
start her in the dark.
End up gettin' lucky if I play good with my cards.

And let her down easy.
Track Name: Penny Song
(Verse 1)
What's mine will be mine,
what's good for my youth I'll have two.
And running in the dust in the fresh air we love
just might do.

I blame the face for the better
of my days I'm alright.
Just like singing my speeches alone
when I'm flyin kights.

(Pre-Chorus)
What ever sounds good,
I'll walk with you by your side.
No need to talk, just walk sit quiet you might,
Realize the way you look tonight.

(Chorus)
Come take a walk we can talk by the Bay Side.
We can laugh in the rapids skip stones,
till the day we die.
No need to speak, with the fire in your eyes.
Penny for your thoughts I'll be spending all my money,
tonight.

(Verse 2)
The brick streets are beating at my feet,
it's giving me the rhythm as I try to go to sleep.
Oh, you look so, in that dress you in tonight.
And if I've been drinking send me all day and afternoon,
and I'll run down to Bay Ridge and waste my sunny day too.

(Pre-Chorus)
What ever sounds good,
I'll walk with you by your side.
No need to talk, just walk sit quiet you might,
Realize Annapolis tonight.

(Chorus)
Come take a walk we can talk by the Bay Side.
We can laugh in the rapids skip stones,
till the day we die.
No need to speak, with the fire in your eyes.
Penny for your thoughts I'll be spending all my money,
tonight.


(Outro)
Yea and some day,
I'll know which way the rain goes.
And it gonna find you, tell you I miss you.
And some where
Over that rainbow.
It gonna tell you, tell you I need you
And some day.
You'll know what I know.
I tell you I miss you.
Tell you I need you.
Track Name: Cabin Fever
(Verse 1)
Well good for me,
but bad for my luck.
Better tell you what I want then pretend to be in love.
That's fine just gimme' enough.
I ain't that tough because I'm sick of the stuff.

Well I asked Jack for a pack of smokes,
the good don't get me then I guess I'll be goin' broke
that's fine for growing old.
You just forgot to ask me about the weather.


(Chorus)
Oh man, we've had such bad weather.
Somebody better get me out of here.

(Verse 2)
Well good for my bones,
and bad for my brain.
tell you what I want, then pretend to be okay.
Well that's fine just gimme a name.
I don't need a chaser I like the pain and
one for the trouble couple more for the kids.
Two for the temper few more for what it is,
what it was.
What it might have been because.
Oh man this weather.

(Chorus)
Oh man, we've had such bad weather.
Somebody better get me out of here.
