The Gun Club Song
I’m tired of my baby
I’m tired of this town
But there’s no place I really want to go
I’m gonna go see my old pal Jeffrey Lee
Go see Jeffrey Lee

Well I got no one to love
No place to call my home
Yeah me I’m sick of everything
I’m gonna go see my old pal Jeffrey Lee
Go see Jeffrey Lee
I’m gonna go see Jeffrey Lee

Well everybody tells me
That you get what you deserve
Well I’ve got one wish coming to me
Now I’m gonna go see my old pal Jeffrey Lee
Go see Jeffrey Lee
I’m gonna go see old Jeffrey Lee

You will fall in love with me
We will dig a whole by the willow tree
I will fuck you until you die
Bury you and kiss this town goodbye

Well she’s like heroin to me
She feels like heroin to me
She’s just like heroin to me
She cannot miss a vein

I’m tired of my baby
I’m tired of this town
There’s just no place I really want to go
I’m gonna go see my old pal Jeffrey Lee
Go see Jeffrey Lee
I’m gonna go see old Jeffrey Lee
I’m coming Jeffrey Lee



The Bob Dylan Song
This is not a song
For all the clear skinned blondes
This is not for MTV
This is for you and me

This is for the little ones
Always getting picked on
The ones that never will fit in
This is from me to them

They throw eggs at me
I’d get pantsed in P.E.
Ah school was living hell
But I came here to tell

You don’t need to feel alone
‘Cause there’s millions of us scattered all around
You’ll be alright
Why just hold on

Now these are some awful days
And the world is a scary place
And it seems like it never ends
Well trust me that depends

So you don’t need to feel alone
‘Cause there’s millions of us scattered all around
You don’t need to get no gun
Cause I’m telling you
The real revenge will come
You’ll be alright 
You're gonna be just fine
You’ll be just fine kid
You're gonna be just fine kid
You're gonna be just fine lord

Cause they will fast get old
And bitterness will eat there souls 
And they will die in their track homes
But that won’t be you and me
‘Cause we will rise and shine
Become like butterflies
We will seize the lives we want
At least that’s what happened to me

So you don’t need to feel alone
‘Cause there’s millions of us scattered all around
You don’t need to get no gun
Cause I’m telling you
The real revenge will come
You’ll be alright 
You're gonna be just fine
You’ll be just fine I know
You're gonna be just fine I know
You're gonna be just fine


The Joy Division Song
Well it was fashion
Became fascism
And it was a phase
But it never went away
And I was lost
And It made me found
It was new,  it smelled like a fresh cut lawn
And It made me think for myself
It made me think for myself
It made me think for myself
It can’t hurt to think for yourself
For Yourself 
For Yourself and nobody else

It got warped 
It got bought and sold
It got merchandised to some suburban lawns
Then it got taken
From me and my friends
But I will never forget what it did for me
It made me think for myself
It made me think for myself
It made me think for myself
Can’t hurt to think for yourself

But it’s easier
To follow the leader
It’s easier
To be a believer

Like Marx
And the USSR
The two were miles and miles apart
They got their haircuts
They got their jackets and clothes
And their two hundred thousand dollar videos
But it made me think for myself
It made me think for myself
It made me think for myself
It can’t hurt to think for yourself
For Yourself 
For Yourself and nobody else

Well it’s easier
to follow the leader
It’s easier
To be a believer
It’s easier
to follow the leader
It’s easier


The Germs Song (Forming Cover)


The Curtis Mayfield Song
I got lost last night
Dreaming about the way things used to be now
Back when things were sweeter
Back when people weren’t so god damn greedy
For Money
For spilling a cup of coffee
They want money
Well Money Money Money
Makes the world go round
It makes me sick and it makes me mad

They got pills so you never get depressed
All kinds of phones so you can always be reached
Things are faster and meaner
Tell me they doctoring an eleven year old kid
He wants money
For spilling a cup of coffee
He wants money
Well Money Money Money
It makes the world go round
It makes me sick and it makes me mad
Money

I got lost last night
Dreaming about the way things used to be now
Back when things were sweeter
Back when people weren’t so god damn greedy
Want Money
For spilling a cup of coffee
They want money
Well Money Money Money
It Makes the world go round
It makes me sick and it makes me mad
Everybody wants money
That’s all they want


The Jam Song
I want you to look at me with those eyes
And I want you to be to me
Over all those younger guys
You can’t let people get to you
You can’t let ‘em bring you down
I want you to hold my hand
And I don’t care if they laugh
I don’t care now
I don’t care
But I don’t want you to runaway

I want you to know that you can always count on me
I need you to know that I will always be by your side
You can’t let people get to you
You can’t let ‘em bring you down
I want you to hold my hand
And I don’t care if they laugh
I don’t care now
I don’t care
But I don’t want you to runaway

You can’t let people get to you
You can’t let them bring you down
I want you to hold my hand
And I don’t care if they laugh
I don’t care now
I don’t care
But I don’t want you to runaway
Get away


The Rolling Stones ’77 Song
Typical day, it was a typical day
It was a typical day in L.A.
The sun was shining, It wasn’t too hot
And everything looked so pretty
Swimming pools and moviestars
They’re  nowhere to be found
I got my laundry done, then I went to Vons
Then I swung around back towards home
And there she was in the crosswalk
A little Power Puff Girl
Just enjoying the sunshine
I wished that I was her

Well Typical day, it was a typical day
It was a typical day in L.A.
Too much traffic, No good radio
But still I seem to get around
I went to Third and Gardner, had lunch with Sam
Then I ended up at Amoeba
I spent all my money and I hit the street 
And it looked like fake movie backdrop
There she was in the crosswalk
A little Power Puff Girl
Just enjoying the sunshine
I wished that I was her

So much poverty round here
That sometimes I forget
Just why it is I live here
Well I wouldn’t be anywhere else

Typical day, it was a typical day
It was a typical day in L.A.
The sun was shining, It wasn’t too hot
And everything looked so pretty
You could see the mountains, just like a postcard
Cruising down the Hollywood freeway
Went to the shoe repair and I got some coffee
And then I swung around back towards home
There she was in the crosswalk
A little Power Puff Girl
Just enjoying the sunshine
I wished that I was her


The Ramones Song
I don’t cry
‘Cause I’m A Boy Yeah

Girls are allowed to cry
Yeah nobody wonders why
Girls are supposed to cry
They’re doing it all the time

But I don’t cry
‘Cause I’m A Boy Yeah

My Mom she’s always crying
She calls me on the telephone
She loves to bawl her eyes out
‘Cause she’s all alone

But I don’t cry
‘Cause I’m A Boy Yeah

Crying makes me nervous
The pit falls of my throat 
Kind of makes me nauseous
Guess that i’m just cold 

I don’t cry
‘Cause I’m A Boy Yeah


The Bowie Low Song
Well i’m so happy just to be alive
Yeah I’m so lucky to be standing right here
Well i’m so lucky just to be alive
Yeah I’m so happy to be standing right here


The Big Star Song
Well Lights shine in her eyes
but she never sees it
And the love that she wants
It never comes near her

And she’s so sexy and she’s so sad
She’s gonna be that way forever
Yes she’s so lost and she’s so sad
No one’s is gonna save her

She knows God is against her
And she doesn’t know why
And why was she born
Yeah what is the point

She’s so sexy and she’s so sad
She’s gonna be that way forever
Yeah she’s so lost and she’s so sad
No one’s is gonna save her

She works at a market bagging groceries
And she hates that she has to be nice
And she hates her life
And she never talks to her family
She comes home at night all alone
With her best friend
She sits down on her bed all alone
With her best friend
Wish’s all….

Lights shine in her eyes
but she never sees it 
And the love that she wanted
Could never come near her

She’s so sexy and she’s so sad
She’s gonna be that way forever
Yeah she’s so lost and she’s so sad
and no one is gonna save her
She’s so sexy and she’s so sad
She’s gonna be that way forever
Yeah she’s so lost and she’s so sad
and she’s gonna be that way forever

Wake up Laura Jane

Well she worked at a market bagging groceries
And she hated that she had to be nice
And she hated her life
And she never talked to her family
She came home at night all alone
With her best friend
She sat down on her bed all alone
With her best friend
Now she’s all alone


The Iggy Stooge Song
I blame no one
Ain’t no victim now
And i’m not sorry
Ah fuck all of that
It felt good
Listen facts are facts
That’s why I did it
Don’t you understand
It felt so good

I don’t know just what it was i’ve learned
Yeah I don’t think there’s anything that I regret or that I would change

It’s very simple
You live a day at a time
You just need money
You get as much as you can
You go up high
And then you crash back down
Then need more
And then you repeat 
repeat repeat 
repeat repeat 
repeat

I don’t know just what it was i’ve learned
I don’t think there’s anything that I regret or that I would change
I’m not one that’s gonna say a thing
I don’t think there’s anything that I regret or that I would change
There’s nothing I would change

Drugs aren’t the problem
This is war without end
People want ‘em
And they are willing to spend
Keep the money
Get a slap on the hand
With jails and rehabs
Over and over again
Sucking billions and billions
and billions and billions

I don’t know just what it was i’ve learned
Yeah I don’t think there’s anything that I regret or that I have learned
Well I don’t think there’s anything I think
‘Cause I don’t think there’s anything that i regret or that I would change
There’s nothing I would change


The Beck Song
Don’t you know that we’re tired of your sideburns of your attitudes
Could it be that you’re just a haircut and some tennis shoes
Could it be that you want, that you think
That you’re Beck inside
Can’t you see that your mom and your girlfriend take care of you
Don’t you see that you’re just a haircut and some attitude
Could it be that you want, that you think
That you’re Beck inside
Could it be that you want us to know
That you’re Beck inside
Could it be that you want us to think
That you’re Beck inside
Could it be that you want us to know
That you’re Beck inside
Could it be


The Elton John Song
I don’t know why 
I keep wondering why
Why is a waste of a question
People believe what they want to believe
They do what they do for no reason
I am done with being right
Right and wrong have no meaning

But the sky’s never been so blue
And the sun’d never shined so bright
And the magic that’s in your eyes
in your eyes, in your eyes
Then it’s gone

Why did you and me drift so far apart
Why’d you move off to New York now
Why do I get up every morning
What makes this world keep on spinning

But the sky’s never been so blue
And the sun’d never shined so bright
And the magic that’s in your eyes
in your eyes, in your eyes
And I keep on telling myself it’s gonna be alright
I just keep telling myself it’s gonna be alright

Years and days of memories
Well how do you throw them away, how?
If there’s a god and you know where he is
Won’t you tell him to call me

The sky’s never been so blue
And the sun’d never shined so bright
And the magic that’s in your eyes
in your eyes, in your eyes
And I keep telling myself it’s gonna be alright
Yeah I keep telling myself it’s gonna be alright
I just keep telling myself it’s gonna be alright


The Thelonious Monster Song
Well it’s two more times I got up, awake too soon
At twelve at night or the middle of the afternoon
There’s a rage been growing inside of me
A confusion nobody else can see
I’m inside out and i’m right side up
And I know too much to be messing up like this
Well you gotta be kidding me 
Tell me you’re joking please
You gotta be kidding me

I’m going full throttle backwards into the Saturday night
Into a culture of violence and ignorance of every kind 
Now i’m in the crowd but i’m all alone
I’m in my house but i’m not at home
I’m looking for something
I don’t know what it is
But You gotta be kidding me 
Tell me you’re joking please
You gotta be kidding me 
Tell me you’re joking please
Can you feel it
Can’t you feel it

I put it together and it falls apart


The Oasis Song
I nominee, myself and me
To be the one
Start the revolution and change the world

If you agree
That things are not
The way they should be
Or the way they could be
Or the way you want ‘em to be
Let’s change the world

I am not stupid, I’m not naive
Well people matter,
And I believe we can change the world

I want you to come with me
Want you to come with me right now

You can’t just sit there and watch TV
Think it doesn’t matter
You’ve gotta believe we can change the world

I want you to come with me
Want you to come with me right now
I want you to come with me
Want you to come with me right now
So we can be free

Well if there’s nothing above 
And nothing below
If there’s only now
And there’s no way home
If there’s only us
Then what have we done
What have we done?

I nominee, everybody and me, 
To come together
Really come together and change the world

I want you to come with me
Want you to come with me right now
So we that we can be free

Well if there’s nothing above 
And nothing below
If there’s only now
And there’s no way home
If there’s only us
Then what have we done
What have we done?

I had a dream, everybody and me
We all came together
We all came together and changed the world
