    Default ADKOT: THE COMPLETE & CORRECT LYRICS

    -------------------
    1. TATTOO

    I got Elvis on my elbow
    And when I flex Elvis talks
    I got hula girls on the back of my leg
    And she hula's when I walk

    Speaking cherry red
    Screaming lectric green
    Purple mountain's majesty really talk to me
    Talk to me babe

    Swap meet Sally
    Tramp stamp Tat
    Mousewife to Momshell†
    In the time it took to get that new tattoo
    tattoo, tattoo

    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    Show me your dragon magic
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    So autobiographic

    Best believe that needle hurts you
    Best to see these true colors†
    That follow one of your false virtues

    Here's a secret to make you think
    Why is the crazy stuff we never said poetry in ink
    Speak in day-glow red
    Explodo paint
    Purple mountain's majesty show me you
    I'll show you me

    Swap meet Sally
    Tramp stamp Tat
    Mousewife to Momshell
    in the time it took to get that new tattoo
    tattoo, tattoo

    Woo!
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    Sexy dragon magic
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    So very autobiographic
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    Got a hold on me
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    You put a spell on me!

    (solo)

    Uncle Danny had a coal tattoo
    He fought for the unions
    Some of us still do
    On my shoulder is a number†
    Of the Chapter he was in
    That number is forever†
    Like the struggle here to win

    Everybody!
    Swap meet Sally
    Tramp stamp Tat
    Mousewife to Momshell
    in the time it took to get that new tattoo
    tattoo, tattoo
    Tattoo
    ta..too!

    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    Sexy dragon magic
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    So very autobiographic
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    You got a hold on me
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    You put a spell on me
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    I'm in love with you
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    Show me, show me your
    (Tattoo, tattoo)
    Look at me, look at you
    (Tattoo, tattoo)

    2. SHE'S THE WOMAN

    A little low on cash
    But I'm high on luck
    I wanna be your knight†
    In shining pick-up truck
    With a Chevy for my summer home
    Let's get the party started
    It's looking like the city towed†
    My other apartment

    She got a doorbell sign that said
    Bring it or don't ring it
    She's the woman
    She's the woman
    She's the woman
    She's the woman

    Fate is my pimp
    But she was cool
    Said If you're doin' business with me, honey...
    What does that make you?
    Some Casablanca gin joint
    You're a nervous wreck
    Your I.Q. plummets fourteen points
    Her thunder thong around your neck

    The song ain't dirty
    It's really just the way we sing it (sing it)
    She's the woman (sing it)
    She's the woman
    She's the woman
    She's the woman

    She wanted something to regret†
    Tomorrow morning
    This suburban garage-a-trois
    Was worth exploring
    Yeah dreams come true
    But it remains to be seen
    By the time mine usually do
    It's no longer me!

    She got a doorbell sign...
    You better bring it, or don't ring it
    She's the woman
    She's the woman
    She's the woman


    -----------------------------------
    3. YOU AND YOUR BLUES

    Ainít no Red House over yonder
    No Stormy Monday waits for you
    Ainít no Midnight Train to Georgia
    And I'm not looking for the truth
    And Iíll tell you what Iím getting rid of next
    You and your blues
    Yes I am

    Youíre bad mood's permanent
    Communication Breakdown
    Like watching someone reinvent
    Their 19th Nervous Breakdown

    Woman you suffer from a color
    I suffered cause of you
    Now everybodyís suffered
    ĎCause of you and your blues

    Ainít goiní down to no Crossroads
    Ainít gonna dust no broom
    No Evil Woman got a hold on me
    Ainít going to Heaven anytime soon

    Youíre bad mood's permanent
    Communication Breakdown
    Like watching someone reinvent
    Their 19th Nervous Breakdown

    Woman you suffer from a color
    I suffered cause of you
    Now everybodyís suffered

    Iím done with coexisting
    This is heavy lifting
    No more growing codependent over you
    And baby while we at it
    Iíve had it†with you and your blues

    (solo)

    Woman†you suffer from a color
    I suffered cause of you
    Now everybodyís suffered
    Woman you†suffer from a color
    And I suffered 'cause of you
    Now everybodyís suffered
    Now everybodyís suffered
    'Cause you and your blues

    4. CHINA TOWN

    Headless body in a topless bar
    Warring clans in lowered cars
    A buck is still a buck in Shanghai
    And a buck is all you earn
    A great night for all concerned

    Steel fingers play a deadly song
    Whole lotta Shakespeare going on and on and on

    Itís all happening downtown
    You painted daughters of the Tong Underground
    Donít mess around

    Welcome to China Town
    Well you bring ultra-new
    Welcome to China Town

    Hero's aren't born, they're cornered
    And this corner is where we write the story
    Two tribes warring
    Downtown after hours
    The best to you each morning

    Can't survive and think to win
    Drugged into sin
    Next episode begins and begins and begins and begins

    Itís all happening downtown
    You painted daughters of the Tong Underground
    Donít mess around

    Welcome to China Town
    Well you bring ultra-new
    Welcome to China Town

    Itís all happening downtown
    Welcome to my town, my town, my town!

    (solo)

    Itís all happening downtown
    You painted daughters of the Tong Underground
    Donít mess around
    Welcome to China Town
    Well you bring ultra-new
    Welcome to China Town
    Welcome to my town, my town, my town!

    5. BLOOD AND FIRE

    You can always tell the winners
    The saints and the sinners
    Down at the starting line
    I'm a lucid vision
    Of the unforgiven
    I'm your wave tossed guy

    King size repercussions
    Trouble by the dozens
    The stakes have never been higher
    Come back when you're younger
    Cause I can feel the thunder
    1-800-IT'S-TIME

    Ooh Yeah!†
    We came, we came, we came†
    Through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came†
    Through blood and fire

    Now look at all of the people here tonight

    It's a world of fools
    That's just what's expected
    None of them know it†
    Or even suspect it
    God must love the lazy
    Shiftless and the crazy
    Put so many in line

    Ooh Yeah!†
    We came, we came, we came†
    Through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came†
    Through blood and fire

    Now look at all of the people here tonight

    Forgotten empires
    Lost victories long past
    Every time I bloomed again
    I thought it was the last
    And then something crazy happens and
    Boom!
    I'm doing the victory dance

    Told ya I was coming back
    Say you missed me
    Say it like ya mean it

    (solo)

    You can always tell the winners
    The saints and the sinners
    Down at the starting line

    Ooh Yeah!†
    We came, we came, we came†
    Through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came†
    Through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came†
    Through blood and fire


    ------------------------
    6. BULLETHEAD

    My karma just ran over your dogma
    I can feel your pain
    If everything is coming your way
    You're facing the wrong lane

    Bullethead
    Bomb the moon until you're crazy dead
    Bullethead
    Got a different kind of truth
    Bullethead
    Yes you are in danger
    I drive just like you!

    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before he admits he's lost
    And do you really, really drive this way
    Just to piss me off?

    Boldly going nowhere
    Trouble busting through
    Yeah, I'm rolling slowly
    But I'm ahead of you

    Bullethead
    Bomb the moon until you're crazy dead
    Bullethead
    Got a different kind of truth
    Bullethead
    Yes you are in danger
    I drive just like you!

    Well I'm a lovin' the horn baby
    Well I'm a Bullethead
    Come-a, come-a, come-a, come on baby
    Well I'm a Bullethead
    Hurt me

    (solo)

    Traffic is giving you trouble
    I can feel your pain
    No light at the end of the tunnel
    Due to budget constraints

    Some days you're the dog
    Some days you're the hydrant
    If everything is going your way
    You're facing the wrong lane

    Bullethead
    Bomb the moon until you're crazy dead
    Bullethead
    Got a different kind of truth
    Bullethead
    Yes you are in danger
    I drive just like you!

    7. AS IS

    Yesterday I was a bum and broke
    Today I am a star and broke
    In this town thatís called progress
    Thatís how we do biz

    Iíve been rich and Iíve been poor
    Rich was better, totally better
    Require's a degree of acceptance
    As in "must accept As Is"

    Drive my search engine home
    Dropped and chopped in Alabama Chrome
    Hey what the hell it runs, SO!
    The day is dunzo
    Letís have some funzo
    Your's very truly,
    As Is

    That's how it goes...

    How expensive he was
    Or what was he worth
    Ain't no Brinks truck following no hearse

    Drive my search engine home
    Dropped and chopped in Alabama Chrome
    Hey what the hell it runs, SO!
    The day is dunzo
    Letís have some funzo
    Your's very truly'
    As Is

    This next part should really confuse things
    Everybody letís stay focused

    Love of the craft
    Or love of the buck?
    Every day down hereís a rainy day
    We donít save up

    (solo)

    A little more volume in the headphones please...

    Unspoiled by progress
    "As Is" is how I follow through
    It's not who you squeeze
    But who returns once again to squeeze you
    No doubt!
    Love 'em all I says
    Let Cupid sort 'em out

    Drive my search engine home
    Dropped and chopped in Alabama Chrome
    Hey what the hell it runs, SO!
    The day is dunzo
    Letís have some funzo
    Your's very truly,
    As Is

    Love of the craft
    Or love of the buck?
    Every day down hereís a rainy day
    We donít save up

    La-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la
    (repeat)

    8. HONEYBABYSWEETIEDOLL

    Stone soul sister,†soccer mom
    Mucha chamiga

    With the sex-pin pulled

    Baby Lover
    Angel Faces
    Satin Doll
    You straight up aces

    (solo 1)

    (solo 2)

    Woof!

    9. THE TROUBLE WITH NEVER

    You often wonder
    You want to know
    How deep does a rabbit hole go?
    I know you never thought about it
    But ask yourself later
    When you turn on your stereo
    does it return the favour?
    I gotta know!

    That's the trouble with never
    Sure seem like a mighty long time
    That's the trouble with never
    When was the last time†
    You did something for the first time?
    Hello!

    Every Einstein's assigned
    A Tweedle dumb and Tweedle dumber
    Ain't no fool could see
    Never even wonder
    Yeah we could come together
    I will call for you
    Hey, never's good for me
    How's never sound to you?
    1-800-Tell-Me-Baby!

    That's the trouble with never
    Sure gave me a mighty long time
    That's the trouble with never
    When was the last time†
    You did something for the first time?

    Yeah!
    Level with me Baby!
    Talk to Me!

    (Solo)

    This could damage your reputation
    My wicked wicked ways
    But maybe I just will†
    Since you put it that way
    Delusions of eloquence
    You never can say
    You wanna play? (the game)
    You can't quit when you get played
    Mistakes make people
    Isn't that what people say?
    Let's them play in the moment
    Dance the night away
    Selective amnesia
    Is only a heartbeat away†

    Ask him a question
    In concern of time
    Suppose you wait forever
    And then you change your mind
    Oh, No!

    That's the trouble with never
    Sure could be a mighty long time
    That's the trouble with never
    When was the last time†
    You did something for the first time?
    When was it?
    When was it?
    Ah, Text me baby!

    When Baby?
    Tell Me
    When was the last time baby?
    Show Me

    10. OUTTA SPACE

    Need no polar bear to scare me
    No Eskimo to share with me his fate
    Wow, We outta space
    No blog-o-sphere to sell me
    No dolphin needs to tell me
    No starving kid to make the case

    Counter blast,†Interstellar facial full
    Bumper sticker on my rocket's ass
    Go Home, The Earth Is Full
    Outta space, Outta space
    Outta space, Outta space

    Eighty acres of one stop shopping
    Has somewhat changed the place
    Wow, we outta space
    I do not refuse it
    I am guilty, I do use it
    I am the reason
    We outta space

    Counter blast, Interstellar facial full
    Bumper sticker on my rocket's ass
    Go Home, The Earth Is Full
    Outta space, Outta space
    Outta space, Outta space

    (solo)

    Danger rides the web tonight
    Burst mode dynamite
    Spinning up my Facebook page
    And I'll ride out towards the outer maze

    The future ain't what it used to be
    Time to change my galaxy in case
    We outta space!
    Trouble-free Earth despocrats made
    Mother Nature piss her pants and when
    That's human way

    Counter blast, Interstellar facial full
    Bumper sticker on my rocket's ass
    Go Home, The Earth Is Full
    Outta space, Outta space

    11. STAY FROSTY

    I journeyed to the North
    To hear what the preacher said
    He said, "your arms too short to box with God
    Learn these words instead"
    Gold tooth reflecting
    My advice is free
    There’s a trick to Christian values†
    And it’s compulsory

    "Stay Frosty"
    That’s what the preacher man said
    "Stay Frosty"
    His words still racket in my head
    Can’t control your future
    Can’t control your friends
    In a world without end

    Stay Frosty
    Hey yeah
    Stay frosty now
    Alright
    Woo

    Uh,uh,uh...(repeat)

    And I traveled to the South
    The ancient rabbi appeared to me
    Voice heavy with the sands of time
    He made me see
    "Same as Kabbalah Dave,†But for you it’s free"
    God guides us on our journey
    But careful with those feet

    "Stay Frosty"
    In a world without end
    "Stay Frosty"
    Like the ancient immortal said
    Don’t want 'em to get your goat
    Don’t show 'em where it’s hid
    And that’s just what I did

    Stay Frosty
    (Woo look out!)
    Stay Frosty now
    (Use my hand†I won't look)
    Ut oh!

    Uh,uh,uh...(repeat)

    I journeyed to the East
    And I struggled to stay afloat
    A solitary Buddhist monk†
    Threw me a rope
    Looked me in the eye
    Said, "Don’t make me say this twice...
    You want to be a Monk†
    You gotta cook a lot of rice"

    "Stay Frosty"
    In a world without end
    "Stay Frosty"
    Work hard at this my friend
    Look beyond the kung fu fighting
    God is love
    But get it in writing

    Stay Frosty
    Stay Frosty now

    (solo 1)

    I wandered out West
    To the California coast
    Where the folks who know about frostiness
    Stay frostiness the most
    My brand new landlord
    Proposed me a toast
    My "West Coast Host"

    "Stay Frosty"
    Chant it like a mantra
    "Stay Frosty"
    And there's nothin' you can't handle
    Far and wide
    Far as you ramble
    Trust in Allah
    But tie up your camel

    Stay Frosty

    (solo 2)

    12. BIG RIVER

    Wind at my back
    Face in the sun
    All my big ideas done

    Big River
    Rollin'

    Listen to a sea shell
    You can hear the sea
    Listen to a beer glass
    That river belongs to me

    Big River
    Rollin'

    There’s a river runs here
    When it rains we flood
    Co-op City first 3 floors
    Of Charles River mud

    Big River
    Rollin'
    Oh, yeah!
    Big River
    Rollin'
    Oh, yeah!

    Land’s edge
    Where the East begins
    The debris meets the sea
    When the tide comes in
    Oh, look out!†
    Look both ways now

    (solo 1)

    Big River
    Rollin'
    Oh, yeah!
    Big River
    Rollin'
    Oh, yeah!

    Big River
    Big River
    Oh, yeah!

    13. BEATS WORKIN'

    Here today gone later today
    I’ve been reading what the bloggers say
    How about a great big slice for me
    Otherwise or professionally

    Beats workin’
    Startin’ up in my feet
    Goes to workin’†
    On the rest of me

    Live this life of luxury†
    Sho-nuff beats workin’ for me
    Kid’ll land on his feet†
    If he don’t land on his seat

    This beats workin’ baby
    Cause I’m red hot
    Baby like it or not
    Don’t you know that
    This beats workin’ baby
    Cause I’m red hot
    Baby like it or not

    One empty floor
    Stands between the stage and the welfare door
    Heads or tails of the same bread
    “Coin of the realm”†
    Just like the man said

    Beats workin’
    Starting up all in my feet
    Goes to workin’†
    On the rest of me

    Got a feelin’ all in my head
    Try to do it like the good book said
    Kid’ll land on his feet†
    If he don’t land on his head

    This beats workin’ baby
    Cause I’m red hot
    Baby like it or not
    Don’t you know that
    This beats workin’ baby
    Cause I’m red hot
    Baby like it or not

    (solo 1 &†2)

    This beats workin’ baby
    This beats workin’ baby
    This beats workin’ baby
    Cause I’m red hot
    Baby like it or not

    (solo 3)

    I know it sounds like "hula girls", but the liner notes say (and it only makes sense to say) "I got a hula girl on the back of my leg", and it only makes sense because he then sings "and SHE hulas when I walk" - "SHE" = singular.

    Also, "hulas" is plural, "hula's" is possessive. It's "hulas".

    According to the lyrics in the booklet, it's "A Different Kind of True."

    Possibly the original album title. Who knows. I'm sure it's already being discussed somewhere around here.

    Also, "hulas" is plural, "hula's" is possessive. It's "hulas".
    In this case, "hula" is an adjective and verb. "She hulas" is 3rd-person singular present-tense. The girls are plural, as only nouns can be, not "hula," which is being used as an adjective modifying "girls" in the first part of the lyric, and a verb in the second part.

    There's a small mistake in this verse of SF:

    I wandered out West
    To the California coast
    Where the folks who know about frostiness
    >>>>Stay frostiness the most
    My brand new landlord
    Proposed me a toast
    My "West Coast Host"

    "frostiness" should obviously be "frostiest"

    (I can't get into the post to EDIT it)

    I believe the liner notes read ""By the time mine usually do, I'm no longer me". Very cool line. But yes, I agree it totally SOUNDS like he's singing "it's".

    Liner notes say "you suffer from *that* color." But I don't hear it in the recording. Agreed, it sounds like "a color".

    Okay, that's not right. You just totally made that one up. Makes no sense at all. I know it's not written anywhere in the liner notes, but I've always heard "Where you been hidin' out?" or "Well, you've been high till now" but I can't tell for sure what it is.

    Again, it's "heroes", not "hero's". This is a good grammar rule to learn and live by. (Love, 'The Grammar Nazi')

    Actually, the liner notes read, "I'mAll UpAndYou'reToBlame", so to me, it looks like there's an intentional space for the word "fucked" or "screwed" or whatever. Is this thing seriously edited? Ugh! Jeez!

    Can't really argue with the fact that it sounds like this, yes, but the liner notes say "Rolling like the ocean".

    Quote Originally Posted by noise next door View Post

    Obviously, the word "bitch" has been edited out or Dave didn't actually sing that word. Who the hell is censoring the lyrics on this album!?!?

    You often wonder

    How deep does a rabbit hole go?
    Dave clearly says it as one word: "You wanna know", just as he wrote it in the liner notes.

    Also, liner notes say, and I've always heard, "THE rabbit hole", as in the literary Rabbit Hole from Alice In Wonderland, which is often used as a metaphor for diving into the subconscious, a deeply-secretive and clandestine underworld of crime, corruption or other mischief, or the entrance to any other kind of unknown world, literal or figurative.

    It's not in the liner notes, but I would argue that he says, "Any old fool could see".

    I know the liner notes have the words "In concern of time", but I hear this whole line as "A simple question concerning time."

    Is it "she was cool" or "she was cruel"?

    Okay, now that we have lyrics, somebody wanna venture a guess as to what each of these songs are about?

    I'm still hearing "true" as opposed to "truth". Plus Dave has it written as "true"
    If Dave wasn't already my favorite lyricist of all time (he was), ADKOT just solidified that fact, 10 fold!!!
