Overdraft in Overdrive

I got a letter this morning
My overdraft's in overdrive
They wanna know what I'm gonna do about it
How I'm proposing to survive
Stay alive stay alive oooh
They want the money
So I work and work and work
And work and work and work and work
They're making me roast
The check's in the post
You needn't worry, worry, worry
Worry, worry, worry, worry
You hit the roof when I'm on the floor
Did I ever let you down before?
I got a letter from my broker
He say he broker than me
My silver mine has tarnished over
I'm on the road to tragedy
Help me, help me, oooooh
I need the money
So I work and work and work
And work and work and work and work
I'm deeper in debt, I'm covered in sweat
You make me worry, worry, worry
Worry, worry, worry, worry
This nightmare's giving me the shakes
Hope I wake and find it's all a mistake
I started with nothing, and worked my way down
I know the things that I do, they mystify you
It's a strange way of living
But I like playing with fire
I'm always walking the wire
And when the tightrope snaps
You'll see my world collapse
I got a letter this morning
Must be my lucky day
Seems I've inherited a fortune
My Uncle Sam has passed away, away, away, ooooh
I'm in the money
No more work and work and work
And work and work and work and work
My banker's aghast, I'm dripping with cash
No need to worry, worry, worry
Worry, worry, worry, worry
You need an angel to survive
An overdraft in overdrive
 

Don't Ask

You ask me what's it like now
I've got no woman - don't ask
You ask me how's it feel to be alone
You've got no one - don't ask
I'll tell you what's the story
Who's the judge and who's the jury - the past
Don't ask me what it's like to be alone at night
I hear a tapping on the wall
(I hear you knocking but ya)
I calm myself by leaving on the bathroom light
I know there's no one out there
But that don't really help at all, all, all, all
So tell me what's it like now
You got nobody - don't ask
Who looks after your health?
I do it myself
How do you survive? I'm staying alive
Who looks after your home?
I do it on my own
And how do you sleep? I sleep alone
Nobody told me that I had to live this way
Yea I could really have a ball
(you keep a knocking but ya)
But if I can't have you I'd rather stay this way
And live in hope that maybe
One day you'll take the time to call, call, call, call
So tell me what's it like now
You've got no woman - don't ask
Who looks after your health?
I do it myself
How do you survive? I'm staying alive
Who looks after your home?
I do it on my own
And how do you sleep? I sleep alone
I'll tell you what it's like now
I got no woman - don't ask
 

I'm Not in Love (Single Edit)

I'm not in love, so don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because I call you up
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
I'm not in love, no, no, it's because...
 
I like to see you, but then again
That doesn't mean you mean that much to me
So if I call you, don't make a fuss
Don't tell your friends about the two of us
I'm not in love, no, no, it's because...
 
I keep your picture upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain that's lying there
So don't you ask me to give it back
I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me
I'm not in love, no, no, it's because...
 
Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me,
Ooh, you'll wait a long time
Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me
Oooooh, you'll wait a long time
 
I'm not in love, so don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because I call you up
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
Ooh, I'm not in love, I'm not in love
 

Good News

Something to begin with, that's easier said than done
You'll see me rolling home
But I don't understand why
Still there's nothing at all, time is on my side
But we mustn't let our disappointment show
But I will, and you will go on
All I need is some good news, some good news
All I need is some good news, just some good news
To put me on my feet, to put me on my feet
To put me at my ease, at my ease
All I need is some good news, all I need is some good news
All I need is some good news, some good news
To put me at my ease, to put me at my ease
All I need is some good news
All I need is some good news, just gimme me some good news
All I need is some good news, some good news
To put me at my ease, to put me at my ease
To put me on my feet, on my feet, on my feet
All I need is some good news, all I need is some good news
All I need is some good news, all I need is some good news
All I need is some good news
All I need is some good news, all I need is good news
To put me on my ease, to put me at my ease
To put me on my feet, on my feet, on my feet
All I need is some good news, good news
All I need is some good news, some good news
All I need is some good news, good news
All I need is some good news
All I need is some good news, good news
All I need is some good news, some good news
All I need is some good news, good news
All I need is some good news
 

Sand In My Face

I looked in the mirror
(What did you see looking at you?)
I saw a nine stone weakling
(What will you do?)
 
Dynamic tension waiting for you?
Dynamic tension make a man out of you
 
I opened my magazine
(What did you see?)
I saw Mr. France
(what did he have?)
A girl on each shoulder
(What else?)
And one in his pants
 
Dynamic tension can do this for you
Dynamic tension make a man out of
You you you you you
 
So our hero goes down to the beach
He's in real terrible shape
His chick's been seen with big Alex
That mother kicked sand in his face
Now let me tell you about Alex
He's got:
Hands like hams
Knees like trees
200 lbs
Of surfboard Hercules
 
Mr. Atlas won't you bring her on back to me
I lost my girl down by the beach
She's with Alex and she's out of reach
So please Mr. Atlas won't you bring her on back to me
I saw your body in an advert on T.V.
But what convinced me was your money back guarantee
 
Now I'm stronger than Alex
(Where is he now?)
He's left in disgrace
(Oh yeah?)
'Cause I took back my girlfriend
(Ha, ha, ha, ha)
And kicked sand in his face
(In his eyes, in his ears, in his nose)
 
Dynamic tension waiting for you
Dynamic tension make a man out of you
Dynamic tension, dynamic tension
Dynamic tension, dynamic tension
 

Fresh Air for My Mama

So say one and so say all
Say what you gotta say
Or don't say nothing at all
You've been tossing and turning through soft sticky nights
While the Bronx below you fights to stay alive
 
So say one and so say all
Be what you gotta be
Or don't be nothing at all
 
Be gracious to your mother
When you leave this neighborhood
The change is going to do her good
Next to me you look bad
'Cos there ain't no fresh air for my mama, my mama
 
But the drop is shear
When you break away
 
Take me away
It's just about time to hit the road
And say
You gotta believe in something
It's easy to see
My God is fading away
So pick up your bible and pray for me
 
We're all alone in the darkness
But our eyes are wide open
We don't see nothing
And our hands are tied
To the railings of the Bowery
And the humid city slickers
 
So say one and so say all
We had a lot to say
And we said it all
 
The cost of living in dreams
Is rising like a crime wave
The American way of dying
 
And it gets you every time
And it looks like it's got to my mama
My mama
May she rest in peace
 

Bee In My Bonnet

I got a bee in my bonnet
Got a chip on my shoulder
I got a hole in my shoe
And my toes are getting colder
I got ants in my pants
I got fries in my thighs
I got a bone in my nose
I got itch in my eyes
I got a bee in my bonnet
Got a chip on my shoulder
 
I got a flea in my ear
I wear my heart on my sleeve
I got a ticket for the train
And I'm ready to leave
I got a rockin' pneumonia
And the boogie woogie flu
I got the palpations
All because of you
I got a bee in my bonnet
Got a chip on my shoulder
 
I'm burning, with love
 
I got the fish on the line
I got my hand in the water
I know right from wrong
So I do what I oughta
I laugh in the day
I cry in the night
Woo hoo baby
Gonna be alright
I got a bee in my bonnet
Got a chip on my shoulder
I got a bee in my bonnet
Got a chip on my shoulder
I got a bee in my bonnet
Got a chip on my shoulder
 

Rubber Bullets

I went to a party at the local county jail;
All the cons were dancing, and the band began to wail.
But the guys were indiscreet;
They were brawling in the street.
At the local dance; at the local county jail.
 
Well, the band were playing,
And the booze began to flow,
But the sound came over on the police car radio,
Down at Precinct forty-nine,
Having a tear-gas of a time.
Sergeant Baker got a call from the governor of the county jail.
 
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets.
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets.
 
I love to hear those convicts squeal;
It's a shame these slugs ain't real.
But we can't have dancin' at the local county jail.
 
Sergeant Baker and his men made a bee-line for the jail.
And for miles around
You could hear the sirens wail/
There's a rumor goin' 'round death row
That a fuse is gonna blow;
At the local hop; at the local county jail.
 
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do?
 
Sergeant Baker started talkin'
With a bullhorn in his hand.
He was cool; he was clear;
He was always in command.
He said 'Blood will flow;
Here Padre,
Padre, you talk to your boys...'
'Trust in me,
God will come to set you free.'
 
Well, we don't understand
Why you called in the National Guard,
When Uncle Sam is the one
Who belongs in the exercise yard.
We all got balls and brains,
But some's got balls and chains;
At the local dance; at the local county jail.
 
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets.
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets.
 
Is it really such a crime
For a guy to spend his time
At the local dance; at the local county jail?
At the local dance; at the local county jail.
 
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna do?
 

Waterfall

Gonna meet you on the corner
Gonna take you out of town
Out to where the grass is greener
And no one can be found
 
Gonna be there in the morning
Gonna take you by the hand
Gonna get out of the city
Gonna get back to the land
 
Waterfall, and it's fallin' down on me
Waterfall, and it's fallin' down
But it ain't gonna let me be
 
Gonna be there in the morning
Gonna take you by the hand
Gonna get out of the city
Gonna get back to the land
 
Waterfall, and it's fallin' down on me
Waterfall, and it's fallin' down
But it ain't gonna let me be
 
Hey, Waterfall
Hey, Waterfall
Hey, Waterfall
Hey, Waterfall
