Track Name: Cats who drive cars
v1
Went to the pound, back in the day,
You were sittin’ in a cage, reading Sartre
I said, let me get you out of this place
You were like “hey why not, OK”


Chorus:
Cats who drive cars
I can drive your car
I can sit on your lap and look out the window
Cause buddy, I can drive your car all day.

Verse 2:
Took you home and set you up,
Got you tuna and science diet
Got you lots of stuff like foam golf balls,
That you whacked all around the halls (chorus again)


Verse 3:
One spring day took you out for a ride
Drove on down to Monterrey
Went to photograph Neutra houses
Then hung out on the beach
Cats on the beach, it’s where its at
Getting scratched, eating snacks,
Everybody just stopped and stared
You said, “hey I go everywhere”

Chorus

Verse 4:
We drove on down to Arizona
Made friends with the local fauna
Spread some cheer and had a beer
Then hit the road again
Track Name: Whiskey Dreams
Well, the barmaid is a cleanin'
and the clock says half past 2
and a sad song came on the jukebox
that kind of reminded me of you
As I sat there and wondered,
staring up at the neon sky,
Can't help to think what could have been
And what a poor drunken fool am I

Chorus:
Whiskey dreams and a hard luck chaser
is what's in store for me
100 proof bad, bad luck
is how it's gonna be
I need to mend my hound dog ways
but that means i have to try,
Whiskey dreams and a hard luck chaser
and a double rock and rye.

Verse 2:
Well the boss called me in this morning
talked about tightening his belt
but that fat ass wears suspenders
and he let me go anyhow
And the wife decided to let me know
she's in love with the Avon lady
and if that ain't enough my 12 year old
ran off to a commune in Berkeley

Chorus (same as first chorus)

Verse 3:
Well the trailer done exploded
the fireball for miles you could see
I guess using it for a meth lab
was not the brightest idea from me
I lost all my vintage Hustlers,
that ain't damned enough,
the police called the fires suspicious
right about then's when they put on the cuffs

Chorus 3:
Whiskey dreams and a hard luck chaser,
they'll be no more for me
cause it looks like I'm headed for a nickel
in the penitentiary

Hell three squares a day and roof over my head,
you know, what the f*ck
whiskey dreams and a hard luck chaser
a country version of good luck.

Track Name: Lullaby
verse
I said I would come by when I was through
Had some things to do but now I’m through
I said I would come by when I was through
Hush hush baby, I’m on my way back to you

chorus:
hey-ye
hush, hush, I’m here now
hush, hush, I’m here now
hush, I’m on my way

verse
I read a book about a man who lost his wife
he walked for miles and miles to look for her
searched every corner, of every square, in every town
Hush hush baby, I’m on my way back to you

repeat chorus
bridge:
my my my
that’s not my life
I’m not that guy.

verse
I saw a film about a man who lost his love
he walked through blizzards and other storms to look for her
crossed the ocean, climbed the mountain, ford the streams
Hush hush baby, I’m on my way, back to you



there's no time


you slammed the door
I heard it crack
whatever I did
I can’t take it back

you took the dog
got in the car
you dragged my heart
but not very far

there’s no time [no time]
there’s no time [no time]
for cheating and lying and crying and fighting
for cheating and lying and crying and fighting

later you called
your voice on the phone
you changed your mind
driving back home

lying here in bed
the dog at our feet
we just get along
life is so sweet

there’s no time [like now]
there’s no time [like now]
for hugging and kissing and bumping and grinding
for hugging and kissing and bumping and grinding
there’s no time like now
there’s no time like now
Track Name: Mabel
Hit me, with your riding crop
Hit me, baby please don't stop

(hit me) your corset's so hot
it really shows, what you got

I love, your heels on my chest
baby, it's just the best

Chorus :
When you whip me
I love it so
leather on flesh
I just let go

When that ball gag
gets in my teeth
I'm so hot
I can barely breathe

Verse 2:
Baby, you're so well equipped
Hit me, with your leather whip

Pinch me, with those alligator clips
Take me, to your Gaza strip

Shave me, oil me up
And take me, to your country club

Chorus again.
(instrumental)
