He's A Woman, She's A Man

I saw it walkin' lonely down the street
Cool like that cat, like crazy dream
I looked twice again, I can't believe
It turned around right then
And looked at me
I said oh no, it really couldn't be
It was a man, it was a woman, too

He's a woman, she's a man
He's a woman, she's a (woman)

I think it really came from far away
I'm feeling head uptights so I have to stay
It takes my hand and says come on, let's go
We're goin' home, she asked to stay
He starts to move, she starts to play
I need a body, why not you

He's a woman, she's a man
He's a woman, she's a (woman)

Locomotive Breath

In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath
Runs the all time loser
Headlong to his death
And he feels the piston scraping
Steam breaking on his brow
Old Charlie stole the handle
And the train, it won't be stop going
No way to slow down, oh

He sees his children jumping off
At the stations one by one
His woman and his best friend
In bed and having fun
And oh, he's crawling down the corridor
On his hands and knees
Old Charlie stole the handle
And the train, it won't stop going
No way to slow down, oh
No way to slow down

He hears the silence howling
When he catches angles as they fall
And the all time winner
Has got him by the balls
Oh, and he picks up Gideon's Bible
And it's open at page one
I think God, he stole the handle
And the train, it won't stop going

No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down
No way to slow down

Lay All Your Love On Me

I wasn't jealous
Before we met
Now every man I see
Is a potential threat
And I'm possessive
It isn't nice
You've heard me saying
That smoking was my only vice
But now it isn't true
Now everything is new
And all I've learned
Has overturned
I beg of you
Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was a shooting
A sitting duck
A little small talk
A smile and baby
I was stuck
I still don't know
What you've done with me
A grown-up man should
Never fall so easily
I feel a kind of fear
When I don't have you near
Unsatisfied
I skip my pride
I beg you dear

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I've had a few
Little love affairs
They didn't last very long
And they've been pretty scarce
I used to think
That was sensible
It makes the truth
Even more incomprehensible
'Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I've learned
Has overturned
What can I do

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

Space Oddity

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

(spoken)
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

"This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows"

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you....

"Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do."

From Out of Nowhere

Tossed into my mind, stirring the calm
You splash me with beauty and pull me down
You come from out of nowhere
My glance turns to a stare
Obsession rules me-I'm yours from the start
I know you see me-Our eyes interlock
You come from out of nowhere
My glance turns to a stare
One minute here and one minute there
Don't know if I'll laugh or cry
One minute here and one minute there
And then you wave good-bye...

Sitting to the bottom, everyday for two
All energy funnels, all becomes you
You come from out of nowhere
My glance turns to a stare
One minute here and one minute there
Don't know if I'll laugh or cry
One minute here and one minute there
And hurts inside
One minute here and one minute there
And then you wave good-bye...

All My Loving

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

I'll pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true
All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, All my loving
Woo, all my loving, I will send to you

Faith Healer

If your body's feeling bad
And it's the only one you have
You want to take away the pain
Go out walking in the rain
You watch the flowers go to bed
Ask the man inside your head
Your sprit never has to grieve
All you've got to believe
The faith healer, the faith healer

All you've got to do is feel
Your body's going to start to heal
The fingertips of holy fire, everlasting sweet desire
It never mattered what the doctor said
The healer man will sail away
It's immortality for two, oh the miracles
They will come to you
From faith healer, the faith healer
Can I my hands on you?
Can I my hands on you?

Faith and hope, and charity, the simple relativity
He can make you understand
All you've got to take his hand
Remember somebody said
Ask the man inside your head
The fingertips of holy fire, everlasting sweet desire
The faith healer, the faith healer!
Can I my hands on you?
Can I my hands on you?
Let me put my hands on you?
Let me put my hands on you?
Can I my hands on you?
Can I my hands on you?
The faith healer, the faith healer...

Juggernaut


Evolution, revolution are the parents of one another
Moving ever moving crushing everything that gets in its way
Smiles telling lies about the future
I don't want to believe them
Pity on their faces baby
Don't you think they laugh in your face
Wheels of justice they have fallen off
Man's on crutches being kicked like dogs
It's a juggernaut, it's a juggernaut, it's a juggernaut

Politicians makin' money all the time
They murder our freedom
Filling up their pockets while the people in the street lay and die
Man you're workin' hard as hell
You only end up payin' more taxes
Give'em all your money baby
Don't you think they give you a bomb
Lambs were slaughtered for the sacrifice
Man's now offered up by his own kind

Cry for your soul, young and old, help your own
They will need it, heed it
Don't be caught between the stones
Economic pressure and recession in nation of madness
Living under fear of countries launching up a nuclear attack
Men are killing men with paper bullets
You may wonder how that's done
Money is the bullet and the dirty greedy hearts is the gun

It's a juggernaut, it's a juggernaut, it's a juggernaut
Rise or fall, one and all, sink or swim
We can win now, oh how we can do it if we try

Superpowers playing chess along a board with people as pieces
Taking human life just they're only sacrificed a pawn
Don't you know the game is rigged
The best that they will do is a stalemate
Who will be the judge of what is right
When we are lying in the graves
We'll inherit from all of our nations
Not peace, only deadly radiation
It's a juggernaut, it's a juggernaut, it's a juggernaut

White Room

In the white room with black curtains near the station
Black roof country, no gold pavements, tried starlings
Silver horses ran down moonbeams in your dark eyes
Dawn light smiles on your leaving, my contentment

I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves

You said no strings could secure you at the station
Platform ticket, restless diesels, goodbye windows

I walked into such a sad time at the station
As I walked out, felt my own need just beginning

I'll wait in the queue when the trains come back
Lie with you where the shadows run from themselves

At the party she was kindness in the hard crowd
Consolation for the old wound now forgotten
Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes
She's just dressing, goodbye windows, tried starlings

I'll sleep in this place with lonely crowd
Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves

The Mexican

Chico Fernandez, sleepin' on his gun
Dreams of Santa-Anna fighting in the sun
Drums so loud from both sides, makes it hard to dream
A bluish fall on an orange fast
Make that hard seems reason

Morinin' calm mornin'
Ah, Chico's gonna have his share
Morinin' sad mornin'
Sad it must be Aahahahahahahahahahaha....
Morinin' sad mornin'
Me-xi-can!!!

Seniorita's panned in: Chico, come-on-home
Santa-Anna's losing, you'll be first to go
Sam Whosman's laughin', Davy Crockets too
When Anna takes the Alamo the first to go is you

Morinin' calm mornin'
Ah, Chico's gonna have his share
Morinin' sad mornin'
Sad it must be Aahahahahahahahahahaha....
Morinin' sad mornin'
Me-xi-can!!!

Morinin' calm mornin'
Ah, Chico's gonna have his share
Morinin' sad mornin'
Heaven will be Aahahahahahahahahahaha....
Morinin' sad mornin'
Me-xi-can!!!

Rat Bat Blue

Hey baby, what you gonna do
When the lights go up on you
What's your name, can I drive you home
Sweet woman, are you all alone
You're the one for me
I'm gonna keep you busy as a bee, could bee, could be
Rat bat blue

Now, get up woman, don't be slow
It's getting late and I wanna go
No cause for acting big
Got to love, got to live
Stick around with me
I'm gonna show you things you never thoughts you'd see
You see
Rat bat blue
You're so fine

Get out! You didn't understand
I'm a hard loving man
No way you can satisfy
The way you look, the way you lie
And when you shut the door
Make sure I don't see you 'round here no more
No more
Rat bat blue
Alright

Something


Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Something in her smiles she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You're asking me will my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around and it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how
