Track Name: Hey, Wait!
Hey Wait! (Hey Wait!)
I said Hey Wait! (Hey Wait)
I said wait a minute baby, my car's out back.
Can you go for a little ride?

I've cast my eyeball on you before
but I didn't have much to say
You're a high class baby with a classy chassis,
Won't you give me the time of day

I'm a cranked and ready
Did my jellyroll,
Spent an hour on these curls
The least you could do is hop
in my ride,
and let me take you for whirl.

Hey Wait! (Hey Wait!)
I said Hey Wait! (hey Wait)
I said wait a minute baby, my car's out back.
Can you go for a little ride?

Don't get too excited girl
I ain't no normal cube.
You got the jets to know that I'm a raring to go
But I never would be rude.

Just gimmie a chance and let me show ya how
I'll take care of you girl
Lets goose it baby and beat the heat
And I'll take you for a twirl.

Hey Wait! (Hey Wait!)
I said Hey Wait! (Hey Wait)
I said wait a minute baby, my car's out back.
Can you go for a little ride?
Track Name: I Was A Teenage Teenager
Oh yeah I went to my doctor told him that i was sick
(He said) “Put you mind to your books and you'll get better quick”
I already tried and I can't concentrate
Those birds keep raising my heart rate

I was teenaged teenager
I am a popping at the seams
I was a teenaged teenager
Nobody else can her my screams
My fuse is lit and I'm in overload
Well tame me now girl, before I explode

You're young and your crazy and your heads full of bricks
I said I can't keep a checking out all of the chicks
He said simply listen son you're wasting my time
Enjoy the life that you have while still in your prime

I was teenaged teenager
I am a popping at the seams
I was a teenaged teenager
Nobody else can her my screams
My fuse is lit and I'm in overload
Well tame me now girl, before I explode

I got my books on my lap just to hold me down
If a girl smiles at me I just shut up and frown
If I rough up the suspect and rub one out
Well I'm back in the gutter before you pull me out

I was teenaged teenager
I am a popping at the seams
I was a teenaged teenager
Nobody else can her my screams
My fuse is lit and I'm in overload
Well tame me now girl, before I explode
Track Name: This Old One
I never won a race on the drag
I got two dents right after the flag
I got to third base once in the back seat
And that's more than enough for me

This old one
This old one
Fire it up, Look out
We're gonna have some fun
This old one
This old one
Fire it up, Look out
We're gonna give it a run

I got one cracked window and lots of Rust
two hopped up dueces left me in the dust
I got three on the tree on this machine
And that's more than enough for me

This old one
This old one
Fire it up, Look out
We're gonna have some fun
This old one
This old one
Fire it up, Look out
We're gonna give it a run
Track Name: Tiki Lights
Tiki Lights
Hold my eyes in the dark
Tiki Lights
Light your fire with a spark
Dancing with the wide whole room to see
Tiki Lights, only you and only me.

I've had my eyes on you the whole night long
Your lips, your eyes embrace me with a song
People come and go and crowds mingle by
But by those tiki lights I'm held fixed in your eyes

Tiki Lights
Hold my eyes in the dark
Tiki Lights
Light your fire with a spark
Dancing with the whole wide room to see
Tiki Lights, only you and only me.

Our hands embraced in front of us like vines
Your lips, your body, they desire only mine
I'd be a fool to ever let you go
By the shimmering blush of the tiki lights that glow
Track Name: The Devil's Strip
Well there's a little place on the outskirts of town
Where the kids really party man they knock 'em down
Hanging around between Oxford and Bond
Watching all the pretty Brunette's and Blonds
With my might I cried Go, Go, Go
Well there ain't no other place I’d rather go

I'm a cruising the devil's strip
I'm a cruising the devil's strip
If it feels alright
I might stay all night
I got the trains on my left and my girl to my right

The groups mull around to see the jacked up rides
Cats slinging insults and picking sides
If one of those greasers break out in a fight
There's gonna be a hot rod rumble tonight
"Climb it Tarzan" someone yelled with a flip
Just another night on this downtown strip

I'm cruising the devil's strip
I'm cruising the devil's strip
If it feels alright
I might stay all night
Well my baby just left and the train's on my right

They call it God's country don't you know
But there sinning going 'round here to and 'fro
Hanging B.A. at the pretty chicks
Just so they'll notice, make something stick
The sounds of the trains coming off'a the yards
We'll bring this town down like a deck o' cards

I'm cruising the devil's strip
I'm cruising the devil's strip
If it feels alright
I might stay all night
With trains on my left and the world on my right
Track Name: Sweet Rebel
I said where are you
(My Sweet Rebel)
Why do you do
(My Sweet rebel)
The things that you do
that you do to me

I can put with the leather
Put up with the brass knuckles
put up with the skull tattoos
If you understand me and you realize dear
that I always will be true

I said who are you
(My Sweet Rebel)
Why do you do
(My Sweet rebel)
The things that you do
that you do to me

I know I'm just a square
I really can't compare
To the ones hanging around you anxiously
But don't dismiss my actions
Or all my intentions
Please just take me seriously
Track Name: Apeman
We've got a new fangled dance around these parts,
Listen very closely it's work of art.
Through a little bug it started and it is all the rage,
The primate dance of a monkey in his cage.
Lift you Left Arm up and Put your right Arm down
Lift your Right Arm up and put your Left arm down

I say Do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
I say Do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
If you can't do The Bop baby, then you can do The Apeman

It's really very simple if you listen what I say,
You can do this dance right now, you can start today.
You don't have to practice or train at all,
Just think of your ancestors having a ball.
Lift your Left Arm up and put your Right arm down
Lift your Right arm up and put your Left arm down

I say Do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
I say Do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
If you can't do The Stroll baby, then you can do The Apeman

The kids are all doing it from coast to coast
The hottest of the hot man they dig it the most
And when they're snuggled down in their nice warm beds
Their parents do the Apeman right below their heads
They lift their Left Arm up and Put their right Arm down
They lift their Right Arm up and put their Left arm down

I say Do, do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
I say Do, do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
If you can't do The Hand Jive, then you can do The Apeman
I say Do, do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
I say Do, do, do, do, do, do the Apeman
If you can't do The Madison, then you can do The Apeman
Track Name: Skeleton Key
I gotta a little baby
as sweet as can be
I gotta a little baby
as sweet as she can be
I'm all locked up inside
but baby she's got the key

When I'm only looking down and I can't be satisfied
She's there for me Instantly
And my fears they all subside
I'm all bad news , I'm all torn up
and I'm bummed out to the core
She takes me With a grin
She makes cry more, more, more

I gotta a little baby
as sweet as can be
I gotta a little baby
as sweet as she can be
I'm all locked up inside
but baby she's got the key

She's for me, makes me feel so fine
Leave all my worries and my trouble's behind
She there's for me and she's my rock
I say my baby is the key and my heart is the lock
She's the Key makes me feel so fine
Leave all my worries and my trouble's behind
She there's for me and you know she's my rock
I say baby is the key and my heart is the lock

I gotta a little baby
as sweet as can be
I gotta a little baby
as sweet as she can be
I'm all locked up inside
but baby she's got the key

When I cry the blues and I'm all full of dismay
She's there for me Instantly
Washes all my worries away
When all my fears come'a crashing down
and she hears me roar,
She takes me in with a grin,
And then she cries more, more, more

I gotta a little baby
as sweet as can be
I gotta a little baby
as sweet as she can be
I'm all locked up inside
but baby she's got the key

I gotta a little baby (X4)
I gotta a little baby
She's my skeleton key
Track Name: Too Square To Roll
Well I ain't cool, don't drive to fast
No skeletons are in my past
Don't mess around, I ain't to rough
But to a girl like that I just ain't tough

Too square to roll
Too soft to rock
She done kicked me
She's making me walk
I ain't down by law and she flipped her lid
"You ain't tough or cool, you're just a kid!"

Well I guess I'm outta luck
Not the first time that I got struck
I told her I was doing time
But I had be back to the jail by 9

Too square to roll
Too soft to rock
She done kicked me
She's making me walk
I ain't down by law and she flipped her lid
"You ain't tough or cool, you're just a kid!"

Well Everything was going alright
If I moved fast enough we might get tight
We headed out to the main drag
Well I got that far I have to brag

Too square to roll
Too soft to rock
She done kicked me
She's making me walk
I ain't down by law and she flipped her lid
"You ain't tough or cool, you're just a kid!"

Had a weed in my mouth and acting real buff
She didn't have to know I was a cream puff
My brother dove up and yelled "Hey Fruit!
"Don't forget your paper route!"

Too square to roll
Too soft to rock
She done kicked me
She's making me walk
I ain't down by law and she flipped her lid
"You ain't tough or cool, you're just a kid!"
Track Name: Room To Breath
You're driving me wild, I gotta say
I'm hypnotized by your balcony
Legs don't quit, Lips that pout
The way your dukes are moving
make me scream and shout

Gimme some room
Gimme some room to breathe
Gimme some room
Gimme some room to breathe
I'm a weak weak man
And you got me on my knees

You lean in close, Sigh out loud
Give a look of lust while we're in a crowd
Kiss me real hard, Lead me to an alley
rough me up baby and
I'm lost in your valley

Chorus

Make it baby and I'm devout
Your hands exploring all about
My face is sweaty, knees are weak
All I was expecting
Was a kiss on the cheek

Chorus

She left me stunned, Sitting there
People stared but I didn't care
She said " Let's slow it down,Cool it hot stuff
It’ll be a lot funner
if I make it tough"

She said
Gimme some room
Gimme some room to breathe
Gimme some room
Gimme some room to breathe
I'm a weak weak woman
And you got me on my knees
Track Name: Flat Cap
Keep your Pompadour, Flattop or Quiff
Keep you Jerry Curl It don't make no diff
Take your Corn Rows, Comb Over, Crew Cut, Crop
Wear it anyway you like, even faux hawk
You can mess with my Ducktail, muss her Bee-Hive
Wear it in Dreads just to feel alive

I don't disrespect, I just don't need that
When I hide under the brim of my Flat Cap

Flat cap!

Keep your Afro, Mullet or Devilock
Mohawk or spikes if you like to shock
Take your Pageboy, Part, Pembroke or Perm
A big Psychobilly Wedge you gotta keep firm
Take you're Bob Cut, Bowl, Bouffant or Bun
Or chop in some Bangs if you're a little fun

I don't disrespect, I just don't need that
When I hide under the brim of my Flat Cap

Flat cap!

Keep your Trilby, Top or Porkpie hat
I just can't get myself into that
Take your hair spray, gel, mousse or Pomade
Slap a flat on you head and get some shade
With my Flat cap on I know I'll always win
Never mind that my hair is starting to thin

I don't disrespect, I just don't need that
When I hide under the brim of my Flat Cap

Flat cap!
Track Name: I'm With You
Well I'm with you
Through everything that you do
I'll be there by your side to see it through

Every time, Every time
I'm with you
We've come this far together
Can you see it too?

When I'm with Her
Time fly’s by like a blur
I'll be the one that she can confide and confer

Every time, Every time
I'm with her
We've come this far together
I do infer

I'm with him
When times look grim
I'll teach him the be the man I should've been

Every time, every time
I'm with him
We've come this far together
And that's no sin

I'm with you
Anything that you're due
I'll do what ever at all it is you ask me to

Every time, every time
I'm with you
We've come this far together
To come unglued
