Track Name: No Friend Of Mine
It was 2 am when you stepped inside
Then I caught you dance room floor
I said no no man, not this time,
Let me show you the door

Get out of here
Get out of my sight
Go drink your beer
Somewhere else tonight

No you ain’t no friend of mine
You’d better go away and let it be

I can’t take it
When are you gonna quit?
Go, leave me alone
No means no, so walk back home
But you never were invited
You’re such a drag, you’ll always be
No you ain’t no friend of mine

You’re all so pushy
Trying to plead your case
There’s nothing you won’t do
You’re all so clingy,
Like a leech to my place
You’re so much worse than glue

Get out of here
Get out of my sight
Go drink your beer
Somewhere else tonight

No you ain’t no friend of mine
You’d better go away and let it be
Track Name: Come
Oh wha wha whawhawhat what can I do
To get your attention to be with you
I ain't got nothing but this song
I've been on the road for too long
There so many things to say
But mostly to do

Oh who who whowhowho who are you babe
I'd love to get to know, to know your name
Please don't feel the wrong way
Don't you see you brightened my day
You gotta tell me girl, you gotta tell me your name

I'd like to come
To come inside your mind
To see what I can find
So I can make you mine


I'd like you to come
Right over my place
Right over my face
And I'll be yours alright

Oh whe whe whewhewhere where will you go
When all the people's gone after the show
I hope you'll stick around, I hope you won't let me down
Oh baby baby please don't leave, baby please no

I'd like to come
To come inside your mind
To see what I can find
So I can make you mine


I'd like you to come
Right over my place
Right over my face
And I'll be yours alright

I'd like to come tonight
I'd like to come tonight
ad lib
Track Name: She's So Hot
I know her love is trouble
She’s a poisonous gal
And though I might see double
I would like to try

She’s luscious, she’s foxy
She causes public scenes
She’s dynamite, she’s TNT
From the Poison Ivy League

She’s so hot
She’s a 10, I’m a 5
She’s so hot
She could burn me alive

No it ain’t pneumonia
The fever or the flu
I suffer from amnesia
Like there’s no other I ever knew

She didn’t need no gypsy
No potion number 9
To make me feel so dizzy
To wanna make her mine

She’s so hot
She’s a 10, I’m a 5
She’s so hot
She could burn me alive
Track Name: Fair Enough
So you’re saying I’m going too far
On the road with my guitar
Smoking all day and playing ’til the end of the night
But if you can’t get used to it
I suggest you to take your shit
Pack your things baby it’s about to go wild

Cause I’m in love with rock’n’roll
iI’s in my body it’s in my soul
This is who I am so get it or get out of my sight

I’m getting tired of our endless fights
You’re blaming me but you should know love bites
This has nothing to do with me being a « child"

Cause I’m in love with rock’n’roll
It’s in my body it’s in my soul
This is who I am so get it or get out of my sight

No money no future, nobody to tell me
No money no future, nobody to tell me what’s right
Track Name: Le Passe Muraille
Mister D. was an office clerk
Who filed, stamped and typed
When it was sunny, he walked to work
Under his bowler hat
He was all quiet and ordinary
Until one night he found out
He had quite an unusual ability
Nothing you’d ever heard about

He could walk through walls
And it didn’t even itch
He was a lone wolf
The price of his gift

Short spoken was Mr L his boss
With his brush cut moustache
Had decided to make Mr D’s life tough
And moved him to a cubbyhole shack
He was never happy and would always complain
About Mr D’s work which drove him insane
So D passed his head through the next door partition
Scared the hell out of his boss to teach him a lesson

Then Mister D took the game to another level
Every night he’d rob banks but the playful devil
Always left a note written in cursive bright red
With his moniker on so the word would spread
His theft every morning would be front page news
The readers loved him, the police had no clues
So he decided to get himself willingly caught
To prison he was sent, in a secured cell block

He could walk through walls
Stone, wood or brick
None was impregnable
Not even concrete
He’s the walker, the walker through walls

The thickness of the prison wall was for him a real treat
Told the warden he’d be gone, out at eleven on the street
He was now in disguise and nobody could tell,
Then a married girl he met, both in love they fell
He said that he would be at her place tonight
Even if her husband had her locked inside
Mr D. got in and loved her till dawn
But on his way out he remained stuck in the wall
Track Name: Slow Down
Baby slow down
Take it easy
We got all the time in the world

Baby slow down
Take it easy
Or else I’m gonna find another girl

You know time is money
But I’m broke as a joke
So if you feel that you need some change I’m not that kind of bloke

Baby you’re hot
But you’re better stay cool
Cause I do not like to be treated like a fool

You can blame for the weed
And being off the radar
But you know I don’t do speed
Not even in my car

You keep on tightening the screws
But this is not a drill
I might be getting the blues
If you never ever chill
Track Name: Silver & Gold
You say hot, I say cold
You say silver And I say gold
You say high, I say low
Nothing’s right as far as I know
If we never stop, never stop to fight

I might stick around for a little while
Cause this little dance might be worth a ride
One step forward, two steps back
Three on the side and we’re back on the track

You wanna quit, I wanna try
You wanna laugh and I want to cry
You wanna leave and I wanna stay
You wanna to sleep and I want to play
When are we ever gonna end this fight?

You say black, I say white
You say day, And I say night
you say drop, I say hold
Will we be together when we get old
If we never stop, never stop to fight?

I might stick around for a little while
Cause this little dance might be worth a ride
One step forward, two steps back
Three on the side and we’re back on the track
Track Name: Hold On
There’s a call on the phone
And you’ve never seen this number
But the sound of the tone
Has a different feel and color
Cause it was you on the other end of the line
Wanting to give yourself a piece of mind

Hold on to your soul
Hold on to your own heart
Hold on to your soul
Hold on to what you’ve got

Cause you’ll always get
People slowing your steps
Dragging you down
So stay true to you
Try to be through and through
Or you’ll drown

There’s a knock at the door, you’ve heard it before
How could it be?
The groove of the knock, the steps of the walk
Now you see
Yes, it was you traveling back in time
Wanting to give yourself some advice

Hold on to your soul
Hold on to your own heart
Hold on to your soul
Hold on to what you’ve got

Cause you’ll always get
People slowing your steps
Dragging you down
So stay true to you
Try to be through and through
Or you’ll drown
Track Name: Lost Morning Blues
Half the day is gone as I get out of bed
In the mirror I look to see the living dead
Feels like wool in my mouth and I’m dry as dirt
My heart is heavy and my head hurts
Oh boy, I got the lost morning blues

Last night is a dotted line
And I can’t fill the blanks

All my money’s gone, ain’t got nothing left
The sole robber I am of my very own theft
Bottles, ashes, records scattered on the floor
The liquor that once flowed, now's coming out of my pores
Oh boy, I got the lost morning blues

Last night is a dotted line
And I can’t fill the blanks

It’s so quiet out
But my mind’s in a haze
It’s so quiet out
I’m confused and dazed
Track Name: Devil Money
How do you feel
About you spending what's left
Of your parents money
Oh my brother come on
You may be angry at yourself
You may feel you don't get anything done

Oh you know a day will come
When you'll spend every coin
Trying to get a life
Most only dream about, oh come on
On this day you'll want
To hang yourself with your guts

And I'll be laughing
I'll be cheering, I'm
The devil money
I'll be waiting for the end of the month

But things will sure get better
Bread will sure get buttered
You'll by yourself some credit
For feeling good about it, come on
You may think you're cool
You may feel now you get things done
On this day you'll want
To hang yourself with your guts

And I'll be laughing
I'll be cheering, I'm
The devil money
I'll be waiting for the end of the month
