GET LOW
Holding court with your boy, at the bar without a care,Frozen still and all, all I do is stare,
Well, I know it’s been so long, not looking for fight,
I don’t want to be alone.

Well I know it’s been so long, if I ask I think you might,
I don’t want to be alone.

CALIFORNIA SWAY
Oh, your mama left and gone,And your papa ain't around,
We ain't got no worries 'til the evening comes
'Til the evening comes.
 
Pull that dress over your head,
Lead me to your creaky bed,
I don't mind staying here until the world ends.
'Til the world ends.
 
I can't take no more delay,
I want that California sway.
 
<INSTR. BREAK>
 
Your hair falls beautifully,
Pour your body over me,
I think we're both exactly where we need to be,
Where we need to be.
 
I can't take no more delay,
I want that California sway.
 
If I had my way,
I'd have your California sway.
 
Come with me, to the sea,
California
We ain’t got no worries, mmmm
‘Til the evening comes
 
I can't take no more delay,
I want that California sway.
 
If I had my way,
I'd have your California sway.
 



30 DAYS
Sleep ain’t come easy, in about 30 days,It ain’t my bed, it’s your cheatin’ ways,
Well, now,
Sleep ain’t come…
 
Sleep ain’t come easy, in about 30 days,
It ain’t my bed, it’s your cheatin’ ways,
Well, now,
Sleep ain’t come in about 30 days,
 
Well I used to be your good man, why you go and change?
 
Sleep ain’t come easy, mama, in about 40 days,
Sheets drenched with sweat and my mind all a haze,
Well, now,
Sleep ain’t come in about 40 days
 
Well I used to be your good man, why you go and change?
 
<INSTR. BREAK>
 
I sleep all night, now you gone away
I don’t why I ever begged you to stay
I sleep all night, since you left and gone
 
Well I got myself two brand new lovers,
You know I’m movin’ on.
 
<INSTR. BREAK>
 
Well I got myself two brand new lovers,
You know I’m movin’ on.
(Bye-bye, baby)
 



YOUNG AND GOLDEN
Young and golden, I rattle my way home,The night’s emboldened, in it’s battle with the dawn,
I think you know,
See eye to eye,
I don’t have the time,
To bring you to life,
Bring you to life.
 
Young and Golden, I make it to your door,
Raise or fold ‘em, hearts in spades all on the floor,
I think you know,
See eye to eye,
I don’t have the time,
To listen to you lie,
Listen to you lie.
 
Young and golden, we get high on your back porch,
Though we’re loaded, I still know which way is North,
I think you know,
See eye to eye,
I don’t have the time,
To sit and wonder why,
Sit and wonder why.
 
<INSTR. BREAK>
 
Young and golden, I rattle my way home,
The air is cold and thick, and now the moment’s gone,
I think you know,
See eye to eye,
I don’t have the time,
To bring you to life,
Bring you to life.
 
Whoa, whoa, whoa…
 



BODY TALKIN'
She don’t say what’s on her mind,Maybe she does, but she says it with her eyes,
See her ‘round from time to time,
She’s just body talkin’.
 
She got her own sense of style,
Black tights and pink legwarmers make me smile,
Wish she’d stop just for awhile,
She just keeps on walkin’.
 
I ain’t got the patience for these subcommunications,
Talkin’ with your body, well it ain’t no way to start the relation,
Ooooooohh.
Mmmmmmmmm. Mmmm…
 
When I’m at the grocery store,
You know I’m shoppin’ just to see her though I’m poor,
From her head down to the floor,
She’s just body talkin’.
 
She’ll cock her hip out to the side,
Then glance my way like I should know what she’s implied,
Well, this time I won’t be shy,
Opportunity is knockin’.
 
I ain’t got the patience for these subcommunications,
Talkin’ with your body, well it ain’t no way to start the relation,
Ooooooohh.
 
<INSTR. BREAK>
 
She says all that’s on her mind,
It’s just a matter of pickin’ up her signs,
Now I see her all the time,
We’re just body talkin’.
We’re just body talkin’, We’re just body talkin’, We’re just body talkin’
(Baby, Baby, come and talk to me…)
 



CRAZY OVER YOU
Lock me up in a padded room,Shackles on my legs not a moment too soon,
Tell by the look in my eyes, it’s true,
I’m crazy over you, I’m crazy over you.
Over you…
 
Set me free or hunt me down,
With your guns, and your knives, and your bloodhounds,
My body shakes like a lonely child,
Won’t you hold me for awhile?
‘Cause I’m crazy over you.
Over you…
 
You know my heart’s been runnin’ around,
Never thought it would slow down,
And I didn’t want it to…
‘Til I found you.
Now I do.
 
Lock me up in a padded room,
Shackles on my legs not a moment too soon,
Tell by the look in my eyes, it’s true,
I’m crazy over you,
I’m crazy over you,
I’m crazy over you,
I’m crazy over you,
I’m crazy over you,
I’m crazy over you.
 



THE MINUTES
My feet get heavy, heavy like a stone.
And it gets hard, hard to leave my home.
 
I breathe the wind, blowin' off the sea.
I feel the waves, crashin' over me.
 
I see the dusk, creepin' through the trees.
And now they're gone, the minutes that I keep.
 



STEAL YOUR CROWN
Well,I'm gonna skip this town, move around,
jump in that ol' Pacific ocean and I'll swim until I drown.
I'm gonna roll all night until I bust;
I'm gonna find myself a woman that the rain won't rust.
Mmhmmm. Yeah, mama.  That's right.
 
I'm gonna raise seven sons then hang the moon,
I'll flip the Earth up on it's side, make the snow come down in June.
And when I'm done crafting all that noise,
I'm gonna lie back in the shade until I want it destroyed.
Mmhmmm. Yeah, mama.  That's right.
 
Well you might be a king or you might be a queen,
maybe a duchess or a duke up in TIME Magazine.
You think you're safe but when the sun goes down I'm gonna
sneak in your castle and steal your crown.
 
Well I've been all across the Earth,
I've been blessed I've been cursed,
I've been down the wrong road, ain't yet reversed.
Tell the truth or trump, baby, it's my pick,
but if you know me then you know I always get my trick.
Mmhmmm. Yeah, mama.  That's right.
 
Alright
 
<HARMONICA SOLO>
 
Well, right about this time you're probably wondering my name,
I keep my mouth closed shut, so if you're asking please refrain.
The crowns that I steal, I keep up on my head;
I keep all a woman's secrets when she's sleeping in my bed.
Mmhmmm. Yeah, mama.  That's right.
 
Well you might be a king or you might be a queen,
maybe a duchess or a duke up in TIME Magazine.
You think you're safe but when the sun goes down I'm gonna
sneak in your castle, sneak in your castle , sneak in your castle
and steal your crown
 


STONE BLIND

You kicked liked a canon, you were reckless and ragged

No matter, you still made whole

You’d hunt and you’d gather, and I wasn’t any better

But you’d always tell me so

 

Neither of us stayed young long enough to know everything

You always knew how to move, I couldn’t keep stride

Whether or not letting go of it all was the remedy

I won’t step stone blind

 

Well, I’d listen to your heartbeat, with lungs filled with concrete

And time would creep on by

Then you’d talk that sugar sweet, and though I’d fold like a bed sheet

I knew it was all just a lie

 

Neither of us stayed young long enough to know everything

You always knew how to move, I couldn’t keep stride

Whether or not letting go of it all was the remedy

I won’t step stone blind
