BLOODBROTHERS

FASTER AND LOUDER

Talk, talk, talk, talk, keeps getting in the way
Speaking as a young artiste who has so much to say
So now you know my situation
understand my aggravation
building up so strong inside
cause I wanna make some noise

I can play
Faster and louder
I can dance
Faster and louder
I can live
Faster and louder
I'm a man
Faster and louder

Feel the need to express myself
Think I'll form a band and call it Yazoo Squelch
Some say it's an abberation
I know it's my avocation
step aside and watch me fly
cause I'm gonna make some noise

I can talk
Faster and louder
I can eat
Faster and louder
I can screw
Faster and louder
I'm a man, I'm a man
Faster and louder

I can scream
Faster and louder
I can jive
Faster and louder
walk the dog
Faster and louder
mow the lawn
Faster and louder
jump back jack!
Faster and louder
get down Bernice!
Faster and louder
Hot Pants!



BORNEO JIMMY

Standing by the ringside
Cheering on the bad guys
Jimmy lights a cigar
Cursing out the old farts
Drinking Johnny Walker Black
Jimmy's been to hell and back
But nothing ever gets him down
Cause he's got his friends around

Hey, hey, hey
Your day will come
Don't you lose your inspiration
You will reach your destination-now

Go Jimmy go
Go Jimmy go
It's your time to fly
Go Jimmy go go go go go

He loves our little furry friends
Stores 'em up in gelatin
He can babble on and on
All about Jim Morrison
Searching for the promised land
Love can ruin a ladies man
Sonny Liston got his breaks
You'll get yours if you can wait

Hey, hey, hey
Your day will come
Don't you lose your inspiration
You will reach your destination-now

Go Jimmy go
Go Jimmy go
It's your time to fly
Go Jimmy go go go go

BABY, LET'S TWIST

Well she used to be lonely
But she ain't anymore
She was a teenage madonna
But now her clothes are all torn

She's got red lips, red lips
She's got blood on her fingertips
She's got red lips, red lips
But they ain't the kind you wanna kiss

She looks for love
Where the sun never shines
She's crying
"I'm so strange"
"I'm so strange"
Then she says

Baby, let's twist, baby let's twist
Baby, let's twist, baby let's twist
I need love; one, two, three
Cause I can't fit in society
So baby, let's twist

A safety pin in her earlobe
A tattoo on her thigh
It's a funky situation
And a treat for the eye

She's got red lips, red lips
She's got blood on her fingertips
She's got red lips, red lips
But they ain't the kind you wanna kiss

She looks for love
Where the sun never shines ...
She's crying
"I'm so strange
I'm so strange"
Then she says

Baby, let's twist, baby let's twist
Baby, let's twist, baby let's twist
I need love; one, two, three
Cause I can't fit in society

STAY WITH ME

I shuffle down the street
my eyes are on my feet
I got no place to go

I try to reason why
but end up getting high
I'm drinking more it shows

I stare into the TV screen
but every face reminds me of a girl
I never used to be so mean
but I can't bear to face my shattered world,
you just ain't fair to this romeo
I fell apart when I watched you go
Baby, baby, baby

My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my,
heart is calling won't you
Stay with me
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my,
heart is calling won't you
Stay with me

The stars they used to shine
but now my tears they blind
the fun we used to have

At night I toss and turn,
the memories they burn
I don't know how to laugh

I try and make the social scene
but I get drunk and turn into a fool
Then I start a fight because I'm only half the man I was with you
said we'd never part until we die
Why didn't you stop when you heard me cry
Baby, baby, baby

My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my,
heart is calling won't you
Stay with me
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my,
heart is calling won't you
Stay with me
