Lizard Rock N Roll Band

I was truckin’ through the desert, there was nothin’ for miles around
I stopped to take a breather and I thought I heard a jivin’ sound
Well, I didn’t have my radio
So I knew I must be crazy or that sound was comin’ out of the ground
So I got down on my knees and started crawlin’ ‘round in the sand
I came upon a boulder and I rolled that rock away with my hand
Ooh, You know I couldn’t believe my eyes
That music was comin’ from a lizard rock ‘n’ roll band

They had a wizard lead guitarist and the drummer kept the backbeat with his tail
The rhythm was a jumpin’ and the sax man was blowin’ his scales
Ooh, when I went to grab the leader of the band
When I went to pick him up, his tail came off in my hand

Catch the lizard - the lizard rock ‘n’ roll band

Love Is Gone

Love is gone
And time keeps draggin’ on
Sleep won’t come
And I wait for the sun
Oh, when I was up
I thought I understood
Now that I’m down, baby
It don’t do no good
‘Cause I lie awake
Call your name
Livin’ without you is drivin’ me insane
Love is gone
And time keeps draggin’ on
Sleep won’t come
While I wait for the sun
Well I spoke my clever words
But they were lies
Now that I see you, baby
I am paralyzed
Oh, darlin’
I’m so low
Deep within my heart I know
Love is gone
And time keeps draggin’ on
Sleep won’t come

Catch the lizard - the lizard rock ‘n’ roll band

Mr. Moon

Mr. Moon, he’s a powerful man
Pulls the oceans on the land
Makes men tell their women lies
When he comes over the rise

I was strollin’ through the town
That big old moon was shinin’ down
I had a bottle in my hand
Oh, that night was lookin’ grand

Well I ran into this girl I know
And we talked soft and low
Then we went out for a ride
My blood was surgin’ like the tide

‘Cause Mr. Moon, he’s a powerful man
Pull the ocean on the land
Makes men tell their women lies
Oh, when he comes over the rise

Now it’s late, and she has to go
She said be there, and I say, well I’ll show
But tomorrow’s sun shines on the world
And I forget my little girl

‘Cause Mr. Moon, he’s a powerful man
Pulls the oceans on the land
Makes men tell their women lies
When he comes over the rise

Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon


Could You Call It Love

Could you call it love
Waiting for someone
You can try most anyone

Monopoly

Well, I don’t give a damn ‘bout no Sherman Anti Trust Act
Or other crazy government rule
Ain’t no high rankin’ senator a gonna try to stop me
‘Cause I got a monopoly on you

And I couldn’t care less about an act of congress
I want to own all of your heart
And you can tell those other guys that they ain’t a gettin’ nothin’
‘Cause there’s nothing’ gonna tear us apart

Oh, but jealousy sometimes overtakes me
And makes me act like a fool
But we can form a monopoly of love together
And to one another be true

Well I paid up my dues and I’m up on my taxes
I’m sure that the merger will go through
And all I need to purchase is a ring for your finger
To complete my monopoly on you

Oh, I don’t give a damn about no Sherman Anti Trust Act
Or other crazy government rule
Ain’t no high rankin’ senator a gonna try to stop me
‘Cause I got a monopoly on you

And I couldn’t care less about an act of congress
I want to own all of your heart
Well you can tell them other girls that they ain’t a gettin’ nothin’
‘Cause there’s nothin’ gonna tear us apart

Oh, but jealousy sometimes overtakes me
And makes me act like a fool
But we can form a monopoly of love together
And to one another be true
Yeah, we can form a monopoly of love together

And to one another be true

Harvest

The soil is rich and there are fish in the river
The corn is growin’ high
With my wife and my children I came here

On the other side of the continent
A few centuries ago
A Chinese ship unfurled its sails
Upon the golden shore

The autumn harvest will provide for the winter
Wood is stacked up in the shed
With snow on its way we give thanks to the Lord

Freezin’ wind from the north
Ice and snow - but we know
We have a fire to keep us warm
And get us by until the spring comes
To melt the snow

Saffron robes and red skinned natives
Livin’ side by side
The wind that brought them here
Spreads seeds far and wide across the land

The soil is rich and there are fish in the river
The corn is growin’ high

With my wife and my children I came here

Stealin'

Put your arms around me like a circle ‘round the sun
You know I love you, now you’re my only one
But you don’t believe I love you
Look what a fool I’ve been
You don’t believe I’m sinkin’
Look at the hole I’m in
You know I’m stealin’
Well I’m stealin’
Hey pretty momma don’t you tell on me
‘Cause I’m stealin’ back to my same old used to be

When I got out of prison, swore I’d do right by you
Oh, but pretty babe, look what I had to go and do
But you don’t believe I love you
Look what a fool I’ve been
You don’t believe I’m sinkin’
Look at the hole I’m in
Stealin’
Oh well, I’m stealin’
Pretty momma don’t you tell on me
Oh, ‘cause I’m stealin’ back to my same old used to be

You don’t believe I love you
Look what a fool I’ve been
I know you really don’t believe me

You don’t believe I’m sinkin’
I wanted to buy you pretty things
But I don’t have no money so I went stealin’
Hey pretty momma don’t you tell on me
Oh, ‘cause I’m stealin’ back to my same old used to be

I went and stole for you momma
And I shot somebody too
Now the man is on my trail
And he’ll know I’ll come straight to you
He’ll be askin’ if you’ve seen me
And he’ll have a look around
Just remember if they catch me
They gonna put me in the ground
So pretty momma don’t you tell on me
Oh, ‘cause I’m stealin’ back to my same old used to be

Oh, you don’t believe
Oh, you don’t believe me

Oh, you don’t believe

Oh, you don’t believe me

Goin' to the Country

Well I had hard luck in the city
People runnin’ wild
Got no time to think for myself
So I’ll be goin’ child

(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
I’m gonna leave that town behind
(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
Before I lose my mind

Well, the city’s full of policemen
They got one on every street
I just got time to pack my bags
And point my big flat feet

(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
Gonna leave that heat behind
(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
Before I lose my mind

Well, the air’s so foul that I can’t breathe
Without a gas mask on my face
And I don’t see how human beings
Can live in such disgrace

(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
Gonna leave that town behind
(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
Before I lose my mind

(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country child
You know I’m gonna leave that junk behind
(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ where it’s funky child
Before I lose my mind

Well, I’m goin’ up where the hills are green
And there ain’t no one around
Just me and my little country girl
And that is why I’m bound

(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
Gonna leave that town behind
(Goin’ to the, goin’ to the)
Goin’ to the country
Before I lose my mind

Oh, I’m gonna leave - I’m gonna leave
‘Cause I can’t take it, ‘cause I can’t take it any longer
Oh, I’m gonna leave - gettin’ out of town
Yeah, bye bye - baby, bye bye
Oh, bye bye - yeah, I’m gonna leave

Wooh, bye bye

Go Raise Hell Up in Heaven

You changed a fuel pump in the mornin’
Played a gig across the bay
With a pocket full of uppers
And a bottle of sideways
You with your big cojones
You came up from the streets
With your outrageous Don Juan smile
You sweet talked all the girls underneath the sheets

Go raise hell up in heaven
Ride your Harley through the pearly gates
Turn your bass up to eleven
Make the angels stay up late

Sometimes you were my enemy
Sometimes you were my best friend
You used to knock me on my butt
Just to pick me up again
And there were moments when I wondered
If you knew wrong from right
But there’s no one that I’d rather have
At my back in a fight

Go raise hell up in heaven
Ride your Harley through the pearly gates
Turn your bass up to eleven
Make the angels stay up late

A natural born idol breaker
I guess God made you that way
Go raise hell up in heaven my brother
Make the angels stay up late

Well you fixed a lot of backs
And you broke a lot of hearts
Your come ons were sweeter than honey
And your put downs were sharp as darts
Well I loved you like a brother
Though you pissed me off a lot
We raced the moon, we played some tunes
We threw back a lot of shots

Go raise hell up in heaven, Johnny
Ride your Harley through the pearly gates
Turn your bass up to eleven
Make the angels stay up late

Player, doctor, preacher
Father that I love
I can say that your gypsy ways
Were always your best stuff
Well, you left us a lot of stories
To amuse and amaze
A trail of songs
And all night longs
Oh, in those good old days

Go raise hell up in heaven
Ride your Harley through the pearly gates
Turn your bass up to eleven
Make the angels stay up late

Go raise hell up in heaven
Ride your Harley through the pearly gates
Turn your bass up to eleven, my brother
Make the angels stay up late

Make the angels stay up late

Mitch's Tune

Well I sing my song when I’m waitin’ around for the summer
And I sing my song when I’m waitin’ for winter too
Oh, when it’s cold outside, I long for the sunlight
Yeah, but when it’s warm outside, the cold wind is welcome too

Hurry home (Even when the sun don’t shine)
My old friend
My old friend (You’re still a friend of mine)
‘Cause my arms are open wide
Waiting for you

Hurry home (Even when the sun don’t shine)
My old friend
My old friend (You’re still a friend of mine)
‘Cause my arms are open wide
Waiting for you

Well, well, I sing my song when I’m waitin’ around for the summer
And I sing my song when I’m waitin’ for winter too
Oh, when it’s cold outside, I long for the sunlight
Yeah, but when it’s warm outside, the cold wind is welcome too
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh

Hurry home

Chicken Butt

Look at that chicken butt goin’ away
Come back chicken butt, here to stay

Goin’ into town to buy some whiskey
Goin’ into town to buy some beer
Goin’ into town to get some thrills
Ain’t comin’ back ‘til I get my fill

Had me a wife and she called me honey
Had me a wife and she called me babe
But she went and took my money
Just one year ago today

Had me a goat and her name was Fred
I milked too much and now she’s dead
Had me a horse and I called him Paul
Couldn’t mount up ‘cause he’s too tall

Now that you have heard my song
Mr. Chicken don’t do me wrong
Look at that chicken butt goin’ away
Come back chicken butt, here to stay
Come back chicken butt, goin’ away
Come back chicken butt, here to stay

Now that you have heard my song
Mr. Chicken don’t do me wrong
Look at that chicken butt goin’ away
Come back chicken butt, here to stay
Come back chicken butt, goin’ away
Come back chicken butt, here to stay

Now that you have heard my song
Mr. Chicken don’t do me wrong
Look at that chicken butt goin’ away
Come back chicken butt, here to stay
Come back chicken butt, goin’ away

Come back chicken butt, here to stay
