With a very special thanx to Paul Roman himself

Animals

Animals on every corner -- Asking you for a quarter
They'd rape your girl -- They'd steal your car
Well rise up cause its gone too far

Animals crime and drugs
Animals gangs and thugs
Arm yourself and get a gun
The suburbs are no place to run
Well i don't know but it seems to me
There's blight upon society
There's only one thing left to do
It´s up to me and it´s up to you

Rise up get a gun -- Rise up get things done

"You know what i´m sayin?"

Asshole In The Express Lane

(with Best Regards To The Manager of The Express Lane A´s )

Well there´s an asshole in the express lane
And now i´m late for work
There´s an asshole in the express lane
Got behind this f***ing jerk
Well there´s an asshole in the express lane
And he´s going so damn slow
There´s an asshole in the express lane
And i just wanna go

Well there´s an asshole in the express lane
Get out of my way

Breakdown

Something´s wrong cause nothing´s right
Seems like all we do is fight
Well you act so independent
Like the force is with you
But all these little stupid things
Always seem to hurt you
I don't wanna see you for the last time
But I might never see this town again
Remember when I saw you for the first time
But we were both more crazier back then

chorus
Well it´s a breakdown
Well it´s a breakdown
I've got to find a way
I've got to get away


I'm the cause you're the effect
We both got our pride to protect
You say you don't get along
With my zodiac sign
Every time something goes wrong
All the blame is mine

chorus

Clone

Well its hard to fit into the usual crowd
If you got opinions don't say 'em out loud
You gotta keep covered in your camouflage
When they look at you its just a mirage

Some people don't have a choice
They got a certain look they got a certain voice
They can't disguise themselves in expensive clothes
Just one look and everyone "knows"

chorus
No one wants to be left out on the outside
No one wants to end up all alone
Life is so much easier on the inside
Life is so much better when you're a clone

Its a sacrifice to give up your "self"
But put it away, put it on a shelf
Don't let 'em know how you really feel
You'll go a lot farther if you just conceal

Some people don't fit in well
They got a bad attitude and they look like hell
They won't change just to get along
No ones gonna tell them that they're wrong

chorus

Cool To Be A Punk

Went out last night to the continental
Saw a chick and she really look good well
I talked to a guy and he said he knows her
He said she thinks your just a poser
chorus

Well it's so cool to be a punk
Commercial tv junk
And i guess i was drunk anyway

Well i turned on my radio
Cruisin' around with no place to go
The station said they play the alternative
Sugar coated and so conservative

chorus

 

Living On Planet 9

I was feeling all alone
Nobody ever calls me on the phone
The weekend seemed to come and go
And still i never had to leave my home
Then i met the perfect girl
We started a whole new world, so rare
Where everybody walks around with leather jackets
And has blue hair

chorus

Living on planet 9 -- this whole world is mine
Living on planet 9 -- and it's so fine

Every time i come around
They try to keep us underground
You sign your name but it's all a game
the music scene just stays the same

chorus

Nine Lives

Started off it was born in 1954
By 1957 didn't want it no more
Then it was reborn in 1981
By 1984 it was over and done
9 lives

By 1985 all the psycho bands knew
That it would live a new life
Free strong and true
They kept to their roots with that crazy slappin' bass
Intensity was written all over their face
9 lives

Well now its 1988 and things are going well
All this top 40 crap has all been shunned to hell
How long this life will last
These cats will never know
But when it dies it'll have six more to go
9 lives

Nothing To Say

Well jukebox cadillac and i´m so bored
I´m taking over this world with an E minor chord
Well there´s a lot of rockabilly bands today
But they ain´t got nothing to say

Well graveyard monsters and i don´t care
Well is it the music or is it your hair
Well there´s a lot of psychobilly bands today
But they ain´t got nothing to say

I tried to be like those before me
But i just can´t get that thing a certain way
And now all they do is bore me
They do anything for money
And that´s not funny
And they ain´t got nothing to say

And it´s hard so hard to get famous
And they´ll do what they have to do
And that´s ok
Well dumb it all down and sell it to the kids
On the shelf of hot topic
You´re on your way
Well count all the money and put it in your pocket
Big mouth on the message board
Everyday
But they ain´t got nothing to say

1,000 Kats

Hey little baby i'm going to town
Some real tough guys have been pushin' me around
This time i'm bringing an army of kats
With great big quiffs and baseball bats

I used to walk down the street and get called names
Now i'll show them all that i don't play games
I've got an army of kats one thousand strong
Screaming out the words to our fight song

One thousand kats in uniform
Great big quiffs - man - is the norm
One thousand kats storming down the lane
Ready and willing to dish out pain

One thousand kats storming down the lane
Ready and willing to dish out pain
There´re only one thousand now but wait and see
C'mon you kats and follow me

Well we used to be out - numbered but all that´ s changed
Get in our way and you'll be rearranged
1000 kats don't get in our way
1000 kats are here to stay

1000 kats...

Well we used to be out - numbered but all thats changed
Get in our way and you'll be rearranged
1000 kats don't get in our way
1000 kats are here to stay

1000 kats...

 

Pack Our Bags And Go

Here we go again we're still being called a 50's band
What's it gonna take to make you people understand
We're playin´ psychobilly, 
Cause that's what we must do
What's it gonna take for us to get through to you
Listen man we don't take no shit
Get in our way-you're gonna get hit

We had to leave America cause people there are square
They laughed and called us names and they laughed at
our big hair
We tried to make it there but people don't wanna know
The only thing for us to do is pack our bags and go
America you'll have to pass
you motherf***ers can kiss my ass

Pack our bags and go
You people here you don't wanna know
We're gonna pack our bags and go

Pack our bags and go ya we've had it with life here
There's nothin' to do and we can´ t even buy beer

Psychobilly Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde

When i hear the sound of the slappin' bass
A change comes over me and hair grows on my face
Now you're gonna see my other side
Cause i'm a psychobilly jekyll & mr. hyde

The guitar twangs and the drums it bangs
My teeth turn into long white fangs
I told you i was normal but man i lied
Cause i'm psychobilly jekyll & mr. hyde

When i hear that sound i gotta get inside
I can't let any one see man i gotta hide
I told you i was normal but man i lied
Cause i'm psychobilly jekyll & mr. hyde

Puttin´  Out The Flame

Well I thought you were rockin' thought you were cool
But boy was I a fool
You were a goody goody girl
And you never broke no rule
Well I need a girl who's fast and wild
And a little mixed up in the head
I need a girl who's a rockin' chick
And a maniac in bed

chorus

Well now its plain to see
You're not the one for me
I´m not going to play this game
Maybe you're just to tame
Honey baby I´m puttin' out the flame

Well i´m a crazy cat and man that's that
And i´m never gonna change my style
You come from the other side of the tracks
And you'll never know what's wild
Well I got to thinkin' while I was drinkin'
You're just not the one
I need a girl that rocks and rolls
And knows how to have some fun

chorus

Well now you're gone and i´m rockin' it up
and i´m out all day and night
Well Im still drinkin' but i aint thinkin'
Of you little baby tonight
Well I got better things to do
Than to hang around with you
Well it´s the last time its the bottom line
Baby you and I are through

chorus

Rockin´ Cats

Well i can't take it anymore
They've tried to lock us out the mainstream door
Even Elvis had to tone it down
They kept the wildest cats all under ground

chorus
Wherever you go they put us down
On every street in every town
But we've got the magic -- We've got the style
It´s the rockin' cats that drive 'em wild


Every time a good band comes along
They try to change the way they play their song
They turn around and steal our riffs
Turn on the TV see a boy band with quiffs

chorus

Show Me

Well baby won´t you talk to me
I am here but you just can´t see
All I want is to talk to you
Find out things that you do
I really want you baby
Now why don't you want me

Well baby call me on the phone
Honey baby I´m all alone
All I want is you right now
I just can´t figure out how
I really want you baby
Now why don't you want me

Well show me if you know i´m here
Show me if you really care
Show me if you do love me
Baby
I really want you baby
Now why don´t you want me

 

Stick To Your Guns

They say there's no rockin' in the usa
Well man that sure is a sad day
Everybody's singing about love this and love that and all that crap
Everytime i turn on my stereo all i hear is rap-crap!

All of these self proclaimed rebels think they know
Sittin' around and listenin' to their top-40 radio
But they don't know, they'll never know so why try
All you rockin' cats keep your head up high!

chorus

Your outnumbered 100 to 1
But man don't you run
You gotta stand and fight
Cause man you know your right
Stick to your guns, you'll never die
Keep your head up high!

Your a real rebel in your black leather jacket
Your parents keep tellin' you to keep down that racket
But they don't know, they'll never know so why try
All you rockin' cats keep your head up high!

chorus

Your sick of school, your sick of work
Always seems your takin' orders from some jerk
But they don't know, they'll never know so why try
All you rockin' cats keep your head up high!

chorus

 

The Deal

Out in the countryside far far away
A boy is on his knees and he starts to pray
He kneels at the alter in front of a big double bass
The look of concern upon his face
He comes with a dream his soul´s on the line
The psycho god says your soul is mine

The boy hangs his head realizing what he's done
The psycho god says go have your fun
Go while you can cause you're wasting time
In three short years your soul is mine

chorus
So go away now go and play
Slap on the bass -- Beat on the guitar
Pound on the drums --You'll be a star
And he knows what he did was the only way
He'd make it in the music world today

Three years had gone by and the psycho god came
It´s time to put an end to your little game
The boy cried no gimme three more years
He fell to his knees his face full of tears
I´ll give you three good souls gimme three years more
The psycho god said that will even the score

chorus

Throw It All Away

Well me and my gal got in a hell of a fight
Well she was totally wrong and I was totally right
Well I never knew love would be this way
Now I gotta live my life for today

chorus

Well I´m walking in the street
Got the latest on my feet
I don´t care about this world
I don´t care about that girl
Throw it away

Well I got a job but it don´t pay
I got a band but we can´t play
Well we fooled the japs but never again
They must have lost 50 million yen

chorus

U.S.A.

This is a song about the place i live
I love it and i hate it to
I cant complain-things are always the same 
In the old red white and blue
Well i gotta be 21 to drink but I can be 18 and fight
There's a lot of things that are that way
There's a lot of things that just aint right
Here in the U-S-A 
I´m livin' in the U-S-A

Big cars green money and ice cold beer
Well I've been around this great big world
Ain´t no place that even comes near
Well money rules in the land of the free
And that's the way its always been
And if you ain´t got none well you'll never win
Here in the U-S-A
I´m livin' in the U-S-A

Drive in movies, buxom babes and cable tv
Well you can have anything you want 
But nothing comes for free
If you try to cross our trail
You''d better remember our past
If you mess with uncle sam
Man we'll kick your ass
Cause we're the U-S-A
I´m livin' in the U-S-A

USA Psychos

All right now!--Oh ya!

Never thought i´d see the day
All across the usa
Psycho kids in every town
Rock this place right ot the ground

chorus
We´re on the move--We´re all around
We´re usa psychos--And we rule the underground


Well now we got a 1,000 cats
With great big quiffs and baseball bats
No one´s gonna get in our way
Psychos rock the usa

chorus

What Will They Say

I saw you standing there
You turned away but there´s something there
I can see you want to be with me
What would your friends say if they saw me
Would they pretend that I´m not there
And baby would you care

chorus

Well what would they say- what would they say
What would they say about me
Ya me ya me
what would they say about me

Black leather jacket bleach blond hair
With ripped up jeans and I don´t care but you do
Why can´t you see though
Why don´t you look inside
Instead of trying to hide your fears
And you end up in tears

chorus

Why are you so scared of who I am
When you shouldn´t even give a damn
Are you that insecure
What your parents say if they saw me
And would you even care
Or baby are you scared

You´ re Dead

Well if your walking through the graveyard late at night
Well you'd better be prepared for a fright
Well you try to run - try to hide - try to get inside

chorus

Well i warned you once i warned you twice
But you wouldn't take my advice
Now you're dead -- you're dead

You see a man but he's not there
Well if you see him out you'd better beware
He'll cut your throat - beat you down
Six feet under ground

chorus

You Are The Scene

chorus

If you're in a frenzy --if you feel tormented
Things are getting restless-- things have got demented

I´m gonna tell you what to do
Then i´ll leave it up to you
I don't think you know what I mean
You are the scene

chorus

You are the scene -- you make or break it
Don't just sit around -- don't just sit and take it
You decide what's good or bad
And you decide what's cool
Don't just sit around -- don't you be a fool

What's it gonna take to make you see the light
What's it gonna take to make
You people get up and fight
I´m gonna tell you what to do
Then i´ll leave it up to you
I don't think you know what I mean
You are the scene

chorus
