That Old Dust Storm (Woody Guthrie)
 
That Old Dust Storm, killed my baby,
But he can't kill me lord, can't kill me
 
That Old Dust Storm, blew my fence down,
But he can't blow me down, can't blow me
 
That Old Dust Storm, blew my house down,
But he can't blow me down, can't blow me
 
That Old Dust Storm, killed my baby,
But he can't kill me lord, can't kill me
 
 
Thatís What I Like (Ray Dorset)
When I've been working hard all day
She's there to meet me at the station
She let's me know that she wants me right away
All hugs an' kisses an' affection
When we get home she wants me for herself
There ain't no way I want someone else
'Cos that's what I like etc. Sweet lovin' everynight
 
The room is warm, there's coffee on the stove
My favourite beer is in the ice box
Her sweet perfume a candle burning low
Some sexy music and some hard rock
Her soft warm body getting close to mine
There ain't no better way I could spend my time
 
CHORUS
 
She makes me hot she keeps me satisfied
She only ever wants to please me
She's all I've got and I would surely die
If she should ever want to leave me
It may seem strange but that's the way I am
Her one woman gut, my one woman man
 
CHORUS
 
 
That's My Baby (Ray Dorset)
 
Well I've got me a woman
She loves me a lot
She makes me cold an' she makes me hot
 
CHORUS
Well that's my baby
Yeah that's my baby
Well that's my baby
An' she sure is good to me
 
Well I take her out
Every night
When we get home she treats me right
 
CHORUS
I love my girl
That's for sure
An' when we love she wants more more more
 
CHORUS  
 
 
The Grease (Ray Dorset)
 
Well he moves with a knife in his hand
He's a hard, dirty, tough, kinda mean kind of man
He's the king an' he lives on the land
Well I've said it before an' I'll say it again
CHORUS
Hear a cry, there they go, it's the grease
Well there ain't no stoppin' even the police
Hear that cry, there they go, it's the grease
Black leather, shone silver an' buckles an' jeans
 
I don't wanna turn on my heels,
I'll fight if I have to I will even kill
Troubles always there by my side
But I'll always get through I will never hide
CHORUS
Well he walks with a sneer on his face
There's a scar from afar it's a big disgrace
Just one look clears the crowd from the place
Well there's no respect for the human race
CHORUS  
 
 
 
The Man Behind The Piano (Paul King)
 
Laying in a hedge soaked to the skin
my eyeballs missing I don't know where I've been
I wake up every morning just the same
I like my fun but I ain't a bum and I ain't got no name
I got no job I got no wife I don't give a dam about my life
drink and women's everything I need
go on the booze, what you got to lose
'cause women they come free
 
Widcat Sue's just a beautiful girl
she's got big long legs but can't you tell
she's a wildcat. wildcat, oh yes she is
she's a wildcat women with beautiful thighs and big, big eyes
 
I was having a drink when she walked right in
got locked in the toilet and I spilt my gin
the man behind the piano stopped and stared
his one-eyed python slid right down and curled around his chair
 
I offered a drink and she asked me why
I said I like your legs and I wanna try
she said you'd better watch your step with me
'I'll have a Russian black and a double gin
but you can't come home with me'
 
Three bottles of gin or maybe four
but after five we were on the floor
the barmaid made a pass at me
she had big red eyes and a double chin
but it didn't bother me
 
I grabbed her hand, she grabbed mine
squeezed her leg and she didn't mind
her husband was a mighty jealous man
he grabbed my arm, got up tight his punch was dynamite
 
I hit the wall fell to the ground
wildcat Sue just laughed aloud
the watchdog came and sniffed at me
he cocked his leg and I protested, "I ain't a tree"
I kicked the dog he bit my leg
wildcat Sue turned round and said
"you little silly washed out drunken fool"
She got on my back and rode me home and kicked me like a mule
 
 
The Sun Is Shining (Ray Dorset)
 
Come on baby help me to spend this gold

Well I'm all dressed up we can really, really rock and roll
with my pocked filled, right up to top with gold
yeah, my pocked filled, right up to top with gold

Well a brand new shirt, a new pair of shoes

Thinking Of You (Ray Dorset)
 
When I'm walking down the road
I'm thinking of you
Everybody knows I'm thinking of you
When I fly my plane I'm thinking of you
Nothing's the same I'm thinking of you
 
When I'm drivin' my car I'm thinking of you
You know who you are I'm thinking of you
An' when all is lost I'm thimking of you
I'm counting the cast I'm thinking of you
 
Oh, but you're not here
No you're not here at all
 
When I'm lying in my bed I'm thinking of you
And when I'm dead I'll be thinking of you
When I'm playing the game I'm thinking of you
An' when I'm in oain I'm thinking of you
 
Do Do  -   Do Do  -
 
Gtr. Gtr.
 
When I'm wearing a smile I'm thinking of you
Every once in a while I'm thinking of you
When I'm watching the news I'm watching with you
When I'm doing up my shoes I do it with you
 
Everywhere I am I'm thinking of you
When I'm stuck in a jam I'm thinking of you
  You're not here
 
 
Time Is Now (Ray Dorset)
 
Wake up your friends, shout out the news
Let all the people forget Ďbout the blues   Whatever your color, whatever your creed
Any religion, any believe
 
Chorus:
Itís time the word changed,   Itís time, the time is now.   Itís time the word changed,   Itís time, the time is now.
Forget about money, Take off your clothes
Shour out the message wherever you go
Get out in the streets, Get out in the parks
Get out of the factories, Get out of your cars
 
Chorus
 
 
Together Again (Ray Dorset)
 
John and Amie were lovers
They only wanted to marry
Their folks said no it could not be
Cos they were much too young
 
So they ran away to the city
So that they could be together
The police came and took them home
Said their love could never be
 
CHORUS
But they'll be together again
Their love is too strong to end
They'll be together till the end of time
They're so much more than friends
 
At three O'clock in the morning
Amie heard John callin'
Had stolen a car, they'd try again
To run away from home
 
Drove on the great highway
Out into the horizon
Swapping kisses, holding hands
But Johnny lost control
 
CHORUS
 
 
Too Fast (Colin Earl)
 
I met a pretty girl walkin' down the street
She had fine form an' pretty little feet
I took her out to a picture show
We got to do some petting
Ah oh oh oh
 
CHORUS :
Too fast too fast
Too fast too fast
I never thought that I would last
She said - oh baby I like it fast
 
When the show was over we got into my car
Drove out to the country not a bit too far
Started huggin' an' kissin' the sun was gettin' low
I came over really funny
oh oh oh
 
CHORUS
 
My baby really loves me she says I make her glad
Her mother really likes me an' so does her dad
We've bin goin' steady for 'bout a year or so
An' when we get to lovin'
oh oh oh
 
 
Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die (Ray Dorset)
 
I rob banks cause I cheat, Always win, Iím never beat  I donít believe in suicide, Iím too fast to live and too young to die
Too fast to live and too young to die, Too fast to live and too young to die
I play dirty, I tell lies, Iím too fast to live and too young to die
I hit girls, I shout I swear, If they get upset man, I donít care  I keep cool and Iíll tell you why:  Iím too fast to live and too young to die
Too fast to live and too young to die, Too fast to live and too young to die
I play dirty, I tell lies, Iím too fast to live and too young to die
When Iím on the road Iím always over the town  I drink and smoke, yeah I like to have fun
Youíll get hurt if you step out the line, Too fast to live and too young to die
Too fast to live and too young to die, Too fast to live and too young to die
I play dirty, I tell lies, Iím too fast to live and too young to die
Too fast to live and too young to die
Too fast to live and too young to die
Too fast to live and too young to die
   
Tramp (Paul King)
 
The sun was low, and the shadow was cold,
On the pale drawn face, that was wrinkled and old,
A newspaper coat, hanging loose 'round his throat,
And the shoes on his feet,  Strips of leather tied up with rope.
His uncombed hair, and eyes that would stare,
At the people passing by, who didn't know or didn't care.
 
Chorus:
This poor old man he's all alone,
He's got no money or no home of his own,
The back street's his kitchen,  The footpath's his hall,
And the chalk on the brick work,
Are the pictures on his wall,  He lays down his head,
On the pavements that's his bed,
And when he sleeps, his dreams fade away.
 
He walks down the street, with his hands in his coat,
Looking down at his feet, for a dog-end he could smoke.
He thinks about food, good drinking and good fun,
As he searches through the dustbins,
His life almost done.
 
Chorus:
This poor old man he's all alone,
He's got no money or no home of his own,
The back street's his kitchen,  The footpath's his hall,
And the chalk on the brick work,
Are the pictures on his wall,  And he lays down his head,
On the pavements that's his bed,
And than he sleeps, his dreams fade away
