Dress My Soul (free) 03:56
Dress My Soul I love her, oh but she loves him Dress my soul - shed my skin All I own is on the outside All I have is on the inside of you In a hurried voice, I make a shaky choice It comes slipping through my breathing tube White line time seldom lies Watching signs, feeling left behind You come waltzing in and I go walking by

That’s What My Mommy Said Now I remember when I was half of sixteen My Mommy seemed to me to really be mean She laid the law down with a steadfast hand I had to listen, ‘cause I was her “little man” That’s what my Mommy said (That’s what my Mommy said) “Now don’t go sliding on them newly waxed floors And don’t be slamming that kitchen door That pie’s for later, now go wash up your hands Go call your brother and go wake up your dad” That’s what my Mommy said (That’s what my Mommy said) My Mom’s a hundred now and I’m eighty-one She often scolds me for having “too much fun” I’ve come to listen without hearing a thing It might be wrong, but it’s my way of coping ‘Cause I remember when I was half of sixteen My Mommy seemed to me to really be mean She laid the law down with a steadfast hand I had to listen, ‘cause I was her “little man” That’s what my Mommy said (That’s what my Mommy said)

Jolly Young World No ”do nots” for we babies, only wars of pleasure allowed And continuous abandon in a young world No need for experience, no Oil of Olay Just slo-mo’s and freeze frames, da rule of the day Just a young world, a yum yum yum world Such a young world, such a jolly young world Regular abundant comforts, rotating planes of delight Mandatory happy face profile in a bright gold light Communication, just buzz words - we show a sleek svelte silhouette We keep the baldies and the grannies anticipating our whims Everybody rich and seductive, nobody needs want All we mamas making moolah for the young world Carefree backdrops provided while we cop and rave So awesomely tanned too - have a nice day Pensive pouts echo oceans of concern Regular trains to Jordan, nobody’s gonna burn Designer clothing in motion, aerobic cocktails o.k. Facial tucks get those washboard tummies, no fat chicks no way No perilous procreation or diseases to fight Just break out the video have sex all night Stamp out crow’s feet, cancel the cellulite Test-tubes and sperm banks make sure we all pretty white (right?)

Little Birdie Little birdie, little birdie What makes you fly so high? It's because I’m a pretty little bird And I do not fear to die Little birdie, little birdie What makes your hair so red? After all that I’ve been through It’s a wonder I ain’t dead Little birdie, little birdie What makes your wings so blue? It’s because I’ve been a’grieving A’grieving after you Little birdie, little birdie Come sing for me a song It’s a short while that I’ll be here And a long time I’ll be gone Little birdie, little birdie What makes you fly so high? It's because I’m a pretty little bird And I do not fear to die

Tonight 02:44
Tonight Well sitting by the night water, fire burning low Watching Nile riders roll on down the river And I told myself a story to a boy who just don’t know Kept me company, we sang and laughed a little But I’m sitting on the other side of the world tonight Tonight baby tonight Well the heart is rippling like the waves and my fever’s rising fast And I’m thinking ‘bout my friend, well she’s my lover And sure, she’s up in the morning and her hair is all a mess But she climbs back in bed and she lays down with another Well we spent the night by the low fire, nothing more than coals Sharing cigarettes and a bottle of water And sometime he would understand and smile like he knows That I would swim across and lay down and I love her

Death Letter Blues She wrote me a letter, now how do you reckon it read? She wrote me a letter, now how do you reckon it read? Come home sweet papa, your loving baby’s dead I went to that depot, I caught that train on time I went to that depot, I caught that train on time When I walked in my baby was slowly dying My mama said howdy, my papa said goodbye My mama said howdy, my papa said goodbye That could poor boy couldn’t do nothing, but hang his head and cry Lord, he went down to her bedside and looked down upon her face Lord, he went down to her bedside and looked down upon her face He said I tried to love you baby, but I can’t take your place So many hacks and buggies are hanging round So many hacks and buggies are hanging round They’re all waiting to take my baby, take her to that burying ground You don’t take my baby to that burying ground You don’t take my baby to that burying ground I said, get away from that momma she ain’t going to that burying ground You don’t break my heart Lord, til you let her down You don’t break my heart Lord, til you let her down You know you don’t break my heart Lord, til you let her down I went down to the headboard and I fell down on my knees I went down to the headboard and I fell down on my knees If you can speak one word babe, give this heart some ease Don’t your house look lonesome when your woman has gone? Don’t your house look lonesome when your woman has gone? Don’t you feel mistreated to see your love so? You don’t miss no water til your well runs dry You don’t miss no water til your well runs dry You don’t miss your momma til she shakes your hand goodbye Will you tell me pretty mama what kind of woman is you? Will you tell me pretty mama what kind of woman is you? Just want to know pretty mama but how come you treat me like you do?
