Fifteen years passed since I heard from high-school folks Would have skipped their invitation if I could Showed up at the place, not a single known face When someone at my back said: “Hey man, you're looking good” And I replied: You should put that right Put that right You should put that right Put that right Go check-in your sight Put that right You should put that right & it better be tonight He said: “You don't recognize me, do ya? It's Pete! Yeah, just let myself go and changed a bit my look” Pete the neat? The hell he was! I said: “Bet you've eaten Pete for the size I see you took” And You should put that right Put that rightt You should put that right Put that right You should put that right Put that right Gotta start to workout Ain't you getting too stout So you still believe you're a handsome stud But that silly wig just gave you away Did you really pop your cherry yet? Or will you have to go & pay? I see you've changed but not your ways But it's fun to see you're still such a prick Did you get over that strange addiction? Round two and your blood just went thick You should put that right Put that right You should put that right Put that right & don't be such a hick/dick Put that right You should put that right & you better fix it quick

The clockwork king is old & rusty Still flattered by a bunch of fools They’ll fight to death to save the crown & run this country with his rules. The clockwork king is weak & tired But they won’t let’m leave the throne Whatever takes to keep’m steady But the king feels used & all alone. The royal motor often goes in pain Straight into the workshop to get fixed once again. Quick adjust, slight touch & he’ll be as precise as grandpa’s watch. Chest of bronze, hips of steel Grease his gear ain’t big deal The clockwork king talks to the folk But he goes nuts & flubs his speech Says: ”You gotta follow my every word Though you see I don’t practice what I preach” He’s nothing but an old heap of junk No more gleam of his dusty trunk Too much data, he’s gone insane Flash his mind & out again Reset his conscience is all we do Lastest version 3.2 He is in a fast decline Cos of the plot against the crown But he’ll make of it a mighty fall Cos’ he’ll try to drag all the traitors down The clockwork king has gone senile & won’t be taken in for a last repair It’s the final crack in the grey engine no supplies for such an old spare The clockwork king is the biggest victim of the plan But he’ll take down with him as many as he can Outdated kit, obsolete machine While everyone flatters the new Golden Queen Rolling head, broken brain The clockwork king’s been slain

I finally got caught with my hands in the pot Those who knew about us said it was just a matter of time Someone blew the whistle on us and our lifestyle But at least, girl, you got away with the crime You got away with the crime It wrinkles my heart to see you locked (up) in this cell & it won’t ease my pain to think they didn't bust me Lots of risky years put to make a life & all to end (up) living (in) this misery No matter how long we are apart Someday we’ll be shining wild and free All the time in the world, we can wait eternally Soon we shall make real our fantasy Running on the edge was the only life we knew Aware this could become part of the game They trapped just me but they’ve got us both paying Although we never planned to share the blame They call me a fool for walking so far & wide But I don’t give a danm ‘bout a word they say Soon I’ll be coming back for your relief Catch them by surprise & run away & run away No matter how long we are apart Someday we’ll be shining wild and free All the time in the world, we can wait eternally Soon we shall make real our fantasy

Here we go, the world is ours We've got ahead a long road to face This is the show we've got to run But you've gotta be ready for glory & disgrace We'll be announced all over the place This is the perfect spot to show your skills Though business is low to make a living We don't skimp on details & frills Scheduled breaks to rest and reload Don't push your luck too far, boy Cos' you don't want yourself stuck on the road Hooch and smokes are the regular fuel To endure the burning sun & the ocassional rain You better go easy on that extra stuff Excess of bust & you won't manage the strain Step on it man There you go, that's your first round's ding We know you'll do your best under the big top Don't let the game leave you too deplete Or you won't make it to our next stop Level's high from the day of depart You gotta be deft & you gotta be fast But most of all you must be smart Is that it? Was that all you have to give We thought you were up for this kind of trek Gotta keep going & no-one'll wait So you better pack up & step off this wreck

Ever since I saw you at Duke's I´ve had a crush on you You didn't give a damn & I couldn't forget you if I wanted to You were the one alone but looked so sure & proud You seemed so high up there outstanding in the crowd You seeeeeem a brave stud,so handsome & svelte But not for that I’ll be (just) another notch in your belt It's always been my cross to bear creeps, jerks, & such So dream & watch all you want baby, but you can never touch So will you dance with me, dance with me & tell me how to get into your groove Dance with me, dance with me Show me how you do that sexy move So tell me what to do to get your sympathy? Better make sure I'm your kind of company So what do I have to do for you to be my queen? Help me to the men's room & you'll find out what I mean Everyone was watching amazed by the swinging of your gown But I was just enjoying blowing everybody down Ever since I saw you baby, I had to make you mine let me tell you, poor soul, you better get in line So won't you dance with me, dance with me & tell me how to get into your groove Dance with me, dance with me Show me how you do that racy move It's you who's gotta dance If you wanna get your chance To be with me Gotta show your quality You've gotta dance If you wanna get your chance To be with me Gotta show your quality

I’ve got a little word for you, son Let me show you who’s in charge Here’s the golden rule in this line of work You should be following by & large It's all about patience here In this wacky game we play But you rushed a bit on your scam So you ain’t going nowhere ‘till I say Did you really think you could just walk away Make your move & leave me broke You were just the man counting the cash So you’re going nowhere with my stash I never was an easy man to cheat & I admit it was a master stroke No place in this town where you can hide Since you stepped on the wrong side You better run lad, nothing left for you to do You better run, cos’ I’ve put my men on you You better run, they will catch you in the street You better run, cos’ they will drag you to my feet Yeah, my goons are all over town But you don’t have to panic, they won’t hurt you at all They just have to bag you like a stray & you’ll be paying before the light of day I’ll turn the world upside down to find you & tip-off every little snitch in town Can you feel how hot I’m on your trail Won’t rest 'till I see you fail You better run lad, nothing left for you to do You better run, cos’ I’ve put my men on you You better run, they will catch you in the street You better run, cos’ they will drag you to my feet Here’s the golden rule for you now ‘Cos I’ve got nothing but time All I have to do is sit & wait (To) see you pay for your crime

Like every morning I was going around the county Trying to get a temp job for my bounty Checking out if a hired hand was needed for the day But the foreman said: “Sorry man, try your luck again tomorrow, (I’ve) got nothing for you today”. It looks like one more dry Monday ahead Cos' they’d rather sign strongmen or use machines instead Once I was their henchman exerting till I broke my bones Pounding their quarry with hand tools, turning it into dust & stones. Now I’m an old granger standing in a Blue-collar queue Just a simple peasant waiting in line for my daily claim I’m an old granger standing in this single-file row Just a lonely peasant waiting in line to hear my name. Eli Whitney cotton gin Ruined the old days of working lean Everybody hears that giant engine The motor’s racket & the thunderous din. Everything turned tougher now that I’m over the hill Today I worked double to pay my heating bill Another empty mine, another factory shut down All resources wasted in this old country town

One shot gun 03:20
Twice, three times a week I ride my old mule down the track Load my quarts on her rump, Cross the border down & back But on my return today that crook came to steal my mule Swear I had no other choice but shoot that poor fool What clouded my mind to put a bullet in his head He left no time for showdown so the bastard now is dead Just one certain shot & I tried to get away But they caught me at Presidio & will hang me at midday With my one-shot-gun I killed that dirty buckaroo Shot my silver bullet one When he came out of the blue Tried to cross the border back But they threw me in this cell They'll hang me before noon Cos' I sent'm straight to hell Twice three times a week I used to ride down to the well Won't be going there no more cos’ I’m stuck here in this cell It was clearly do or die as I claimed when I was sworn But they sentenced me so fast that I'll be dead tomorrow morn With my one-shot-gun I killed that dirty buckaroo Shot my one silver slug What was I suppose to do? Tried to jump the border back But they locked me in this cell They will hang me before noon Cos' I sent'm straight to hell

Aldwyn 03:52
Aldwyn spent the night awake trying to face his grief Gazing how the valley starts to dawn The roads already hum & the blaze begins to fade He clearly feels that soon he will be gone. Too soon to clean the haze, too soon to let the sun warm up Too late to burn another log His dog lays stiff but loyal at his feet Still under a thin cloak of fog. He's old enough to accept the rush of time But not to take the ravages of age He knows a man dies learning while years flash away Though he hasn't written the whole page He coughs but lights another smoke While the breeze blows the ash & clowds away As far as he can see it’ll be a shiny morn But the day will be turning dark & grey. There & then he learns the hour's stalking close & the more he finds about life, the less he feels he knows Aldwyn spent the day awake waiting for the dusk Watching how the rain cleaned up his sight It seams another day squeezed out of his hands While he doubts he'll make it to the night He's old enough to take the ravages of age But not to accept the course of time He knows a man dies learning while years flash away Though he hasn't written the whole page
