The Ballad of LeBron & Kobe (3:17)

The ballad of LeBron and Kobe
The ballad of LeBron and Kobe

The ballad of LeBron and Kobe
Don’t act like you don’t know me
‘cause I’m your will to win
No matter what the shape I’m in
I crave the meaning of these minutes
And all the sweat that I’ve put in it
I’m the King of the hill
And I am because I pay the bills.

The ballad of LeBron and Kobe
The ballad of LeBron and Kobe

I fall in love with epic battles
I fight until I hear bones rattle
I’m your vitamin E
But I’ll foul you if you get too mean
I’ll shimmy when I need to shake ‘ya
And I’ll shake ‘ya when I need to wake ‘ya
I’ll raise the top of your game
And I’ll thank you if you do the same

The ballad of LeBron and Kobe
The ballad of LeBron and Kobe

I’ll take the wind out of your sails
I’ll make you bite your fingernails
I’ll take you to the hole
And bank it on a finger roll
Pressure keeps me in the zone
Even when I feel alone
And I’ll SCREAM at the referee
If he slows my game down on TV
If he slows my game down on TV

The ballad of LeBron and Kobe
Don’t act like you don’t know me
‘Cause I’m your will to win
No matter what the shape I’m in

I Saw Her (3:31)

...and I’m taking her down
and I’m taking her down
and I’m taking her down

She didn’t think I was there
but I saw her
She didn’t think I was there
but I saw her
She didn’t think I was watching
but I saw her
the house was worth
more than he was alive
so she burned it down with him inside
and I saw her
She struck a match on my neighbor
and I saw her
next day it was in the ‘papers
‘cause I saw her
no commentary could save her
‘cause I saw her
the rain in Spain
falls mainly on her mental plane
‘cause his death was hard to explain
and I saw her

...and I’m taking her down
and I’m taking her down
and I’m taking her down...

She had him trapped by the whiskers
and I saw her
She had him covered in blisters
and I saw her
how many times had he kissed her?
‘cause I saw her
blonde on blonde
she’ll be up for Murder One
‘cause he never had a chance to run
and I saw her
cash is cash
when life is burning really fast
and cash is clay
when you throw it all away
and I saw her

...and I’m taking her down
and I’m taking her down
and I’m taking her down...

She didn’t think I was there
but I saw her
She didn’t think I was there
but I saw her
She didn’t think I was watching
but I saw her
I’ll raise my right hand
on it to the judge
but my left hand
will hold a grudge
‘cause I saw her

If All I Do Is Cry (5:13)

Don’t you be afraid of my gun
or you’ll never hear me
Don’t you be afraid of my gun
or you won’t get near me
Over and over again
I tried hard to make you happy

Over and over again, I tried
now I’m just trigger happy
Don’t you be afraid of my gun
I am not a killer
Don’t you be afraid
because if you run
it becomes a thriller
The soldiers of fortune have come
and they come with the sisters of mercy
slicing and dicing their way
into each day
‘cause that’s how you hurt me
and then your lawyers tried to work me

If all I do is cry
I cry a fountain
If all I do is cry
I cry a sea
If all I do is cry
I cry a river
If all I do is cry

Don’t you be afraid of my voice
if I scream a little
Don’t you be afraid of my choice
though it’s still a riddle
the bullets and bandits have come
and they come with their ulcers bleeding
I came to you when I was young
now I come like a shark that’s feeding
and with a tale/tail so long it bears repeating

If all I do is cry
I cry a fountain
If all I do is cry
I cry a sea
If all I do is cry
I cry a river
If all I do is cry

Over and over again
I tried hard to make you happy
Over and over again,
we tried to reach you
so that’s why they sent me
you never know the price of envy

If all I do is cry
I cry a fountain
If all I do is cry
I cry a sea
If all I do is cry
I cry a river
If all I do is cry

The Blame (3:07)

They put the blame on me
but I was never there you see
they put me on the run
I gotta keep ‘a movin’ on
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away

They put the blame on me
they’re living in a fantasy
my profile fits the bill
so I’m living off the time I steal
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away

They put the blame on me
a blemish on my legacy
the word is “shoot to kill”
I’m living off survival skills
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away

They put the blame on me
another little tragedy
my fingerprints were there
she was strangled with her underwear
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away

They put the blame on me
but I was never there you see
they put me on the run
so I gotta keep ‘a movin’ on
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away
this a way, that a way, either way, I’ve got to get away

They put the blame on me
but I was never there you see

The Captain’s Table (3:29)

‘Said I was there when they picked him up
And beat him on the Captain’s table
I was there when they slapped him up
And made sure that he was disabled
He played with the band
And they sucked
Since they left land
Yada yada yada yada ya
I was relieved it wasn’t me

I was there when they picked him up
And fed him with a knuckle sandwich
I was there when they wrapped him up
And treated him like extra baggage
They made him walk the plank,
More sharks there than in the bank
Yada yada yada yada ya
I was relieved, he was a thief

‘Said I was there when they turned him into
Entertainment for the pirates
His mouth slipped and he said things
That made the Captain very irate
His tongue, it got him hung
Just because of a song he sung
Yada yada yada yada ya
As you can see, it wasn’t pretty

I was there when they made him wear a dress
And then they called him ‘Sally’
They put lipstick on his lips and
Made him wait for John McNally,
A crew member who
Likes his women in BIG shoes
Yada yada yada yada ya
You can believe he was a freak

I was there when they
Redirected his ideas about his living
Grabbed him, jabbed him, dragged him, stabbed him
Like a turkey at Thanksgiving
I saved him with my blade
And stole the water from his grave
Yada yada yada yada ya
I was relieved it wasn’t me

‘Said I was there when they picked him up
And beat him on the Captain’s table
I was there when they picked him up
And beat him on the Captain’s table

All The Way To Memphis (2:59)

I fell over backwards
when I got the news
she was a friend of many years
I pulled over off a
gravel road somewhere
I’m in a mood to shed my blues
I’m in a mood

‘cause I left Tallahassee in the rain
and I drove all the night through Georgia
and I reached Tennessee before sunrise
and I cried all the way to Memphis

Some fingerprints were lifted
from her bedside tray
she never went to work that day
her killer was a man
she met in acting class
who cast her in his foul play
his foul play

‘cause I left Tallahassee in the rain
and I drove all the night through Georgia
and I reached Tennessee before sunrise
and I cried all the way to Memphis

An apple from the orchard
falls onto the ground
and if there are no worms around
the sun will take and bake
into a rotting core
until the seeds are there no more
are there no more

‘cause I left Tallahassee in the rain
and I drove all the night through Georgia
and I reached Tennessee before sunrise
and I cried all the way to Memphis

Euphoria (4:15)

If all it takes is flowers and flattery
Then the weather’s just as fickle as your heart it seems
Then the Taj Mahal is just a structure built to keep the rain from you
because no matter what you do, it always floods my dreams.
Young man, what you gonna do when love gets ahold of you?

‘Cause you’ve had blues so long
that it’s become your song
and it will knock you off your feet
until you right your wrong
‘cause you’ve had to take the heat
but still carry on
while the midnight lingers on,
Euphoria.

If all it takes is white wine and sympathy
Someone to listen to you tell them all the little things you need
Then the unemployment line is where you find the man with that kind of time
I wish you all the best, I wish you all of God’s speed.
Young man, what you gonna do when love gets ahold of you?

‘Cause you’ve had blues so long
that it’s become your song
and it will knock you off your feet
until you right your wrong
‘cause you’ve had to take the heat
but still carry on
while the midnight lingers on,
Euphoria.

Azerbaijan (3:48)

If you go to Azerbaijan
leave your tentacles on
or things will get sticky
If you go to Azerbaijan
go by catamaran
in case it gets fishy
O how can I forget you
Azerbaijan?
O how can I forget you
Azerbaijan?

If you go to Azerbaijan
leave your pajamas on
and try to look busy
If you find yourself in a house
don’t get caught like a mouse
for taking the mickey

Your daisies make me crazy
Azerbaijan
O how can I forget you
Azerbaijan?

If you go to Azerbaijan
leave your ZOOATHALON
and travel much better
If you come to fork in the road
look for big salad bowl
the grass is much wetter!
Your waves have saved my days
Azerbaijan
O how can I forget you
Azerbaijan?

If you go to Azerbaijan
leave your ski goggles on
so you can look silly!
If you go to Azerbaijan
and they ask where you are from
just say you’re from Philly!
If you go to Azerbaijan
show yourself as a man
and don’t be a sissy!
If you go to Azerbaijan
don’t think you’re in Iran
or they will get hissy

Christine - Part 2 (4:11)

Tongue tied and feeling lonely
whiplashed and moving slowly
your back was broken on a wheel
and they call it ‘wheat’
‘cause that’s what ‘we eat’
I’m serving my time in prison
while keeping you in my vision
They found my fatal flaw
‘cause I fought the law

Christine
the jungle can be mean
but life is just a dream
now let me hear you scream!

I gave to them what I remembered
before all my monkeys were dismembered
they handcuffed me to a cell
it was a souvenir from hell

Christine
the jungle can be mean
but life is just a dream
now let me hear you scream!

Take me into your navy
let the waters all around you save me
then take me by the hand
‘cause I’M THE LEADER OF A BAND!

Christine
the jungle can be mean
but life is just a dream
now let me hear you scream!

Ride with me until I’m faded
drink with me until I’m jaded
and the same flames that’s a burning you
are the flames that’s gonna see you through
I’ll cradle you in my service
and sit with you when you are nervous
‘cause I dropped my rolling stone
but I still found my way home

Christine
the jungle can be mean
but life is just a dream
now let me hear you scream!

King Of The Silver Medal (2:11)

‘cause I’m the king of the silver medal
no matter how fast I pedal

Travelling at the speed of my own thoughts
thinking about the races that I’ve lost
over mountains and the pouring rains
through the valleys and the alleys
of the fruited plains
because I’m the king of the silver medal
no matter how fast I pedal

Samples of my blood have all been screened
I’ve won nothing but I’m always clean
I will get the gold eventually
but until I win a race,
this is what I’ll be:
‘cause I’m the king of the silver medal
no matter how fast I pedal

Cycles come and cycles always go
I’m a cyclist and this is what I know
the Tour de France is calling out my name
and I will scandalize them all
by stepping up my game
‘cause I’m the king of the silver medal
no matter how fast I pedal

This Far (3:25)

There’s a tension in the air
from missing you
your heart is always on my horizon
I will love you
‘til the days that are no more
so we fight, that’s not surprising
but

THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR

Leave the wreckage by the window
before you go
and I will hammer into a new shape
all the broken promises that
made you cry
‘cause I can not tell you a lie

THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR

excuse my confusion
excuse my confusion

All my horses become
unglued when chasing you
and I’m the rider with the long face
You’re a woman
who wears her heart out on her sleeve
and I’m in stitches when you leave

THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR
BABY WE’VE COME THIS FAR

Marry Me (3:52)

The portrait of my life is incomplete
Marry me, marry me, will you marry me?
The voices in my head are not as sweet
Marry me, marry me, will you marry me?

Marry me my dear
and let’s be clear
I need your love
to stay right here with me
Marry me

I’ll build you a castle made of stone
Marry me, marry me, will you marry me?
‘cause where you hang your picture is my home
Marry me, marry me, will you marry me?

Marry me my dear
and let’s be real
you’re family
that’s how I feel for you
Marry me

My life hangs in the balance of your eyes
Marry me, marry me, will you marry me?
Show me more surrender than surprise
Marry me, marry me, will you marry me?
Reflections in the mirror aren’t as true
when I look at them and not at you

Marry me my dear
and let’s be clear
I need your love
to stay right here with me
Marry me

Big Baby (2:24)

You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby
You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby

half of us are on crack
the other half on prozac
our sanity’s out of whack
but I’ve got your back
eat well, sleep long
and gather your wits along
until you can write the songs
and stand on your own
‘cause

You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby
You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby

laugh laugh
clear path
life is more than the math
and if you take a bath
don’t go down the drain
the reindeer’s
pain dear
keeps it from flying near
but it will soon be here
if you feel the same
‘cause

You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby
You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby

BIG UP!
Dig up
all of the silver cups
hidden beneath the roots
of your family tree
STAND UP!
Chin up
and use your head a lot
and you can write the plot
of your history
‘cause

You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby
You’re such a big baby
a big baby a big baby

What Baby Wants (3:37)

We waited 9 months for you
before your mama had to push you through
because your mama ran out of room
waiting for you to go BOOM!
Don’t worry about your comfort zone
because your daddy’s got a black cat bone
WHAT BABY WANTS, BABY GETS
WHAT BABY WANTS, BABY GETS!
Your belly button window shined
with miracles that you were mine
it had to turn my head around
in case you thought I was a clown
laughing at the time you own
because your daddy’s got a black cat bone

WHAT BABY WANTS, BABY GETS
WHAT BABY WANTS, BABY GETS!

You sleep a lot, you sleep a lot, you sleep a lot, you sleep a lot
you sleep a lot, you sleep a lot, you do
I hope that you’re expressing what’s inside of you
You eat a lot, you eat a lot, you eat a lot, you eat a lot
you eat a lot, you eat a lot, you do
I hope that you’re expressing what’s inside of you

Your mother was a polished pearl
and your papa’s from a hostile world
stumbling through the lost and found
and slapping other bitches down
but we’ve got room for you to roam
because your daddy’s got a black cat bone

WHAT BABY WANTS, BABY GETS
WHAT BABY WANTS, BABY GETS!

Eat My Thumb (2:44)

Ga Ga Goo Goo
Can I have a talk with you?
Let’s speak while you clean
up my boo boo
Leave the bigger
questions away from me
So I can get more
out of my infancy

That’s why I eat my thumb
I eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
I eat my thumb
I eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
Eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby

I saw, she saw,
but so did Arkansas
I saw seashells
selling against the law
I keep my mouth shut
unless I go numb
My opinions
I keep in my thumb

That’s why I eat my thumb
I eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
That’s why I eat my thumb
eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby

Einstein in my mind
is a good friend
I dream of him again and again
I pull his mustache
and then he laughs
We go to titty bars
but we don’t sign autographs

That’s why I eat my thumb
eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
That’s why I eat my thumb
eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
Eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
Eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby

That’s why I eat my thumb
eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
That’s why I eat my thumb
Eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
Eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby
Eat my thumb
‘cause I’m just a baby

I Never Know (2:06)

Fade in fade out if that’s your fate
Just don’t fade away
Save your reflection to carry another day
And if you’re gonna tell somebody tell me
If you’re gonna tell somebody tell me
‘cause I will take you through the rain
‘cause I never know, I never know with you.

Time comes by and ties your hands
And leaves it with demands
The heart is a fable unless it bleeds when it can
And if you’re gonna tell somebody tell me
And if you’re gonna tell somebody tell me
And I will take you through the rain
‘cause I never know, I never know with you
‘cause I never know, I never know with you.

The Laughing Song (3:58)

I got a seat in a restaurant
it wasn’t the table that I want
it happens more than a little
but you got to laugh about it
I ordered the ‘catch of the day’
which they seemed to find on the freeway
it made my Bo Diddley diddle
but you got to laugh about it

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
HO HO HO HO HO HO HO
HE HE HE HE HE HE HE
YOU GOT TO LAUGH ABOUT IT
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
HO HO HO HO HO HO HO
HE HE HE HE HE HE HE
YOU GOT TO LAUGH ABOUT IT

I booked a seat on an airplane
a window seat as I explained
they put me right in the middle
but you got to laugh about it
I sat next to a motor mouth
who didn’t know what he was talking about
it left my mind all a riddle
but you got to laugh about it

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
HO HO HO HO HO HO HO
HE HE HE HE HE HE HE
YOU GOT TO LAUGH ABOUT IT
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
HO HO HO HO HO HO HO
HE HE HE HE HE HE HE
YOU GOT TO LAUGH ABOUT IT

I got a call from the tax man
‘said I was late with the facts man
he made me sell all my fiddles
but you got to laugh about it
I lost my car in a landslide
it wasn’t the last time that I cried
but when the tears start to trickle
you’ve got to laugh about it

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
HO HO HO HO HO HO HO
HE HE HE HE HE HE HE
YOU GOT TO LAUGH ABOUT IT

The Quarterback Song (2:14)

This is the quarterback song
and this will not take very long
so listen rookie so we can agree
that you blew the PASS PROTECTION
you were drafted at number one
and concussions are never fun
so do the job you’re paid to get done
‘cause you blew the PASS PROTECTION
‘cause you blew the PASS PROTECTION!

4 out of 5 doctors agree
I’ve had too much surgery
and I’m last years league MVP
so don’t blow the PASS PROTECTION
Linebacker came on a blitz
and hit you like you was his bitch
I’m not here for vivisection
so don’t blow the PASS PROTECTION
so don’t blow the PASS PROTECTION!

My signals are very clear
even your mama can hear
crowd noise can be a distraction
but don’t blow the PASS PROTECTION
6’5, and 336
don’t fall for amateur tricks
if we don’t win, we don’t get in
so don’t blow the PASS PROTECTION
so don’t blow the PASS PROTECTION!

She’s Sad (2:44)

She’s sad
after all the things I’ve done for her
She’s sad
after all the things I’ve said to her
She’s sad
after all the time we made it through
and I only want to know that she’ll be happy

She’s sad
after all the walks on the sands
She’s sad
after all the money and demands
She’s sad
after lawyers and their liberties
and I only want to know that she’ll be happy

She’s sad, sad, sad
after all the lines of poetry
She’s sad, sad, sad
after flowers and their flattery
She’s sad, sad, sad
after all the broken memories
She’s sad
She’s sad

She’s sad
and I’ve seen a waterfall of tears
She’s sad
no more Cupid and his arrows here
She’s sad
all the valentines have disappeared
and I only want to know that she’ll be happy

She’s sad, sad, sad
deceivers are not believers
She’s sad, sad, sad
I was open like a wide receiver
She’s sad, sad, sad
after wasting all my precious time
She’s sad
She’s sad

She’s sad
after all the moments drift away
She’s sad
and she’s at a loss for what to say
She’s sad
and now I look the other way
and I only want to know that she’ll be happy
