Track Name: Riding Along
Riding along on a chrome horse wheelin
to the sun, never stop that feelin
The road that we're on, through the hillside leadin
Leadin me on, what a life I'm livin

So come along, come along with me
kiss the city goodbye and submit to the feelin
You said you'd come, bring your three wheel deal
and ride to the sun, feelin free for the weekend

You know we can't stay around here no more
(got to get a wheel and fly)
Hangin around ain't what we're livin for
Gotta make the best of a summer day

Hey mama bell now who you meetin
Standin alone, maybe lonely feelin
Girl let me take you, if you're willing
Take a free trip with this time that you're killin

Hey corner crowd, why you lookin at me
are you searching everywhere, just to fit in
Don't get upset if it's me your seein
No, don't you fret, cos you see we are leavin

You know we can, yes we can leave, leave.
(got to get a wheel and fly)
You know we can, yes we can leave, leave, leave..

Track Name: Chump
I'm a chump, a chump, I am,
I'm a chump, a chump, I am,
I'm a chump, a chump, I am,
I'm a chump, a chump, I am,

Hear me callin again
I'm playin with my friend
I'm guilty as sin
Now here I go again

It's the same old plan
you know I'm back here again
trying to pretend
things never end

I'm a chump, a chump, I am..

It's a shock, don't stop
Better take it from the top
and it's clear that you fear
and it's everything that's dear to me

You stay, don't play
but I'm callin every day
my hair turning grey
now what can I say

I'm a chump, a chump, I am,..
Can't you hear these words in my ear
Making it perfectly clear.
Preying on these things that I fear.
Can't you hear them calling me a chump. Ha, ha, ha..

Well it's plain I'm in pain
I keep calling your name
see me dancin in the rain
I think I'm goin insane

I know why you don't try
you kick mud in my eye
try to sell me good times
and it's all just a lie,.. all just a lie...

I'm a chump, a chump, I am..

Track Name: I Belong To You
I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me
I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me

If you leave me, if I hear you say,
"The time has come to go, I must be on my way."
I just don't know what I'm ever gonna do
without you here cos I belong to you

I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me
I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me

I beg you darlin please,
I'm beggin on my knees
Can't you hear my plead,
you know you're makin me bleed.

You say you don't belong.
You say you're movin on.
In the morning you'll be gone.
Left me with this song.

I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me
I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me

I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me
I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me

If you leave me, if I hear you say,
"The time has come to go, I must be on my way."
I just don't know what I'm ever gonna do
without you here cos I belong to you

I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me
I belong to you, you belong to me
there ain't nothin in this world keep you away from me

Track Name: Bad Weed
Something invading my lawn
It's like my grass is all gone
A sea of yellow reaching to the sun
When the wind blows, I share with every one.
Ain't nothing dandy going on. Sing.
There ought to be a law

Ragweed brings a tear to my eye
Pain, every second goes by
Won't somebody tell me why, why, why?
You know it makes me want to die, die, die
When I can't take anymore... I scream
"There ought to be a law."

It's a bad weed - blowin my way
Came from a bad seed - wreckin my day
It's a bad weed - you know it's no fun
Came from a bad seed - you better tell everyone

Poison Oak, poison Ivy
You wonder how? Wonder "Why me?"
Itch my nose and my toes and my ear
Itching in the kitchen, itch in the rear
Don't want no itchin no more
there ought to be a law

It's a bad weed - on the lace of my shoe
Came from a bad seed - every thing that I do
It's a bad weed - it can happen to you
came from a bad seed - gonna make you feel blue

I'm waiting for a swat team to circle my house
Chopper, spotlight..better not open my mouth
Megaphone voice says "you better give yourself up"
"What's going on?", "What's growing in your lawn?"

Now you're pickin a sticky, sticky burr
Stuck on my shoe and stuck on your fur
Stuck on him, stuck on her
All this stickin, you know it's upsurd
Can't take no stickin no more
There ought to be a law

It's a bad weed - stuck on my cloths
Came from a bad seed - you know it's stuck on your hose
It's a bad weed - Probably happen to you
Came from a bad seed - you can make a law too..

that's bad. So bad.
It's a bad weed.

Track Name: Speed Trap (harp)
Goin away, makin time to play
You go back no matter what I say (every day)
I hear your voice ringin in my head
You never listen to a word I said
(I think you're better off dead)

So you say there's somethin wrong with me
What a lesson this is gonna be
You know you always make me feel a fool
Nothin left to keep me here with you

Speed trap, limit 55
gimme half a life
or is it just a come on

Speed trap, immitate life
throwin in a line
beggin me to come on home

Pass on the left, don't pass on the right
You made me look for your flashin light
Throw me back or you can take me home
I took your bait on the road alone

Ain't drinkin wine but I'm feelin fine
Sleepin all day, drive all night
Sing a song, just to move it along
slow down but you come on strong

Speed trap, limit 55
gimme half a life
baby won't you shut your

Speed trap, imitate life
Cheese with that whine
beggin me to come on home
come on home

Dare to take a ride with me
see these things we're gonna see
I ain't gonna ask no more
what are you lookin for?

Track Name: Pay
Sat down for my wage review
he said I'm sorry son, there ain't nothin we can do
Three years here, I got 4 percent
before I get that check all my money's spent,
I need help…cos I'm sinkin fast
and I owe. I feel like I'm gonna crash

I pay for gas, I pay for heat
I gotta pay for my phone, I got pay TV
Pay the IRS but don't ask me why
I'm gonna keep on payin till the day I die
I need help…cos I'm sinkin fast
and I owe, I feel like I'm gonna crash

I'm in the red, I'm here to stay
I pay tomorrow, pay today
"Amount due" is all I see
I feel like all these bills are gonna bury me
I need help…cos I'm sinking, sinkin
and I owe. Feel like I'm gonna crash

I need help now won't you help me please
If you're anything like me you must be on your knees
I need help in so many ways
I got in for free but now I gotta pay
I need help, cos I'm sinkin
and I owe. Feel like I'm gonna crash

I got a dead-end job..
