Track Name: Sorry Girl But The Show Is Over
sorry girl but the show is over lock the old French doors & kill the lights
this fickle love has led me nowhere just as I suspected that it might
if I stick around I fear my beating heart will turn as black as night
even if I take your hand it won't make me an honest man that's right
your mama took your ballet shoes away when you were just a little girl
she took your dreams & ripped the seams & told you about the big old ugly world
she said your best to find a man with pockets deep enough to dress you up in pearls one who likes you with no makeup on & lets you wear your hair in curls
so run on home & tell them it's a down right shame make sure you talk their heads off so they'll have someone to blame you're all the same for simple fools life can be cruel walking with your head down toward the floor you worry that your days are wasted I don't want to live that way no more I used to long to kiss your loving lips but now I'm swimming for the shore once I was a wealthy man but now I'm down on luck & oh so poor
chorus
sorry girl but the show is over lock the old French doors & kill the lights this fickle love has led me nowhere ain't no place to lay my head at night there ain't no need to argue now you only see the world in black & white just remember that it means I probably won't if I ever say I might
chorus
you're all the same
Track Name: Oh The Evil !!!
oh the evil's creeping in oh the evil's creeping in
riding on an early spring sunbeam
oh the poison's sinking in oh the poison's sinking in
trying to kill me slowly while I dream these awful dreams
oh promiscuous young girl oh promiscuous young girl
your words are like a tired melody
oh my love that's ill advised oh my love it's ill advised
it's best you keep yourself away from me
driving down to New Orleans driving down to New Orleans
I'm dressed to kill an unsuspecting town
eyes wide open face is numb eyes wide open face is numb
come on sister lay me one more down let's go one more round
oh the evil's creeping in oh the evil's creeping in
riding on an early spring sunbeam
oh the poison's sinking in oh the poison's sinking in
trying to kill me slowly while I dream
these awful dreams
