LYRICS

thank you for calling me back now
nice to hear your voice on my machine
did you enjoy today's weather
and this past month have any good dreams
cause it's not about being together
stockings or my boots of leather
guess I'm gonna give up on that whole scene
cause I'm too tired to keep on trying and I'm too healthy now for dying
find me some nirvana let me suck your thumb and scream
 
the more I'm loved the more I am hated
by all the little Kristy's in my head
am I fatally wounded or just jaded
am I getting it together or just getting it on in bed
casue it's not about being together
stockings or my boots of leather baby
I don't even want to think about that scene 
I wanted to love you but I guess I bored you
baby why can't you adore me
strap me on your guitar and strum me till I scream
hey oh not again
bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad
chorus
I want
to be beautiful
from the inside from the inside out
I want
to be beautiful
from the inside from the inside out
guess it's time that I forget about you
I guess I liked you more than you liked me
and I don't know just what it was about you
it;'s the typical story of the Dick and Jane in me
and I know we won't be together
pretty soon I'll start feeling better
cause I don't need no king to be a queen
but it was nice to touch and hold you
did you know that I adored you
now get me some nirvana, let me such your thumb and scream
hey oh not again
bad bad bad bad bad

LYRICS

baby, guess you got me by the crystal ball

got me waiting around all day

praying you will call

well a man your age should know a good thing by now when he sees it

and you got me acting like a fool

but I will gladly beat it

 I don't want no diseases anyway

the sooner I stop liking you the cleaner my good stuff will stay

and I don't want no baby from a man that's so hard to get

go put some protection on or I'm not getting...

yes it's true baby I think you're mighty fine

if you would have put in some effort we could have had a real good time

but you got me chasing you down

running around to see you play

now I find out that you got some kind of Japanese medicine coming

to take your pain away

well that's alright

cause I don't want no diseases from you

but darlin' you're so tempting cause I liked everything you do

but I've lived over 30 years now, clean as clean can be

and on my knees I thank the Lord you gave nothing permanent to me

and I don't need no diseases from you

didn't they teach you about safe loving back in 1952

fun is fun honey, but when it's done, all should be ok

thank you for the memories darlin' but I'll be on my way

guess it's kind of good you didn't like me that much anyway

LYRICS

Oohh yesterday I went a walking

To myself oohh I was talking and I ran into a man and he was fine

He wore a silver jacket carried flowers in a basket

he said call me uncle daddy if you don’t mind

 

chorus

So I called him called him uncle daddy

I called him called him uncle daddy

I called him called him uncle daddy

and now my life it just shines

 

I said now call you uncle daddy

Don’t you think it’s kind of nasty

kind of sends a shiver down my spine

He said damn it I’m intriguing and since I don’t see you leaving

why don’t you try out this little line

and I thought of how boring my life is

playing by the rules

and I thought of how good uncle daddy looks

and how he’s just so cool

 

chorus

Oohh yesterday I went a walking

To myself oohh I was talking and I ran into a man and he was fine

He wore a silver jacket carried flowers in a basket

he said here’s a diamond ring want make you mine

 

chorus

and I got a ring and it shines

now my life it just shines shines shines

now baby, now my life it just shines

now my life it just shines shines shines

now baby I got a ring and it shines

Yes it does

LYRICS

I see a blackbird looking at me

outside my window on a wall of concrete

the man that I fancy don't call me to play

so please Mr Blackbird would it be ok

if you come inside and spend some time with me

I promise I won't act so desperately

so Mr Blackbird now don't let me down

he gave me butterflies in my stomach they drown

cause butterflies don't flutter around blue eyes that see

the world as black and white with nothing in between

so Mr Blackbird would it be ok to feed you and kiss you

and you can fly away

you can fly away

you can fly away

I'm lonely I'm lonely

blackbird can't you see

I'm lonely I'm lonely

just a poor girl like me

I'm lonely I'm lonely

LYRICS

tonight our little boy

looked at me and said

are you madly in love with daddy mama

and I just hung my head

we are all together darlin

and that's just fine

when I walked away

I felt like crying

it's been such a long time since either one felt good

mad is such a nag and lee is always in a mood

but the love their babies and don't want to see them cry

but as far as mad & lee go

their madly in love dying

chorus

it's not a complicated story

it's been told before

two people get together

till one gets bored

lee's so bad with money and he has ADD

mad is anti-social and plays that George Jones CD

but they bite the bullet till all the tears they have run dry

but as far as mad & lee go their madly in love dying

chorus

and then their is a heartbreak

and all those lessons learned

soon the animosity begins to churn

but sometimes she whispers, plase get out

she badly wants her true love but has learned to live without

and what god has put together mad & lee pray will work out

and what god has put together mad & lee pray will work out
