Track Name: Shake It Up!
You're holding the smoking gun
You can't get up off the floor
I knew that you'd lost the touch
To orchestrate your last big score

Shake it up, rip it up
Take it out, shake it up

Baby I'm not surprised
I knew it would come to this
When you've got nothing left
I know that you can't resist

Shake it up, rip it up
Take it out, shake it up

Just like a lightening rod
Balanced on a house of cards
Dancing on an oil slick
Do a rhumba on Cuban rum

Shake it up, rip it up
Take it out, shake it up

Shake it up!
Track Name: Time Time Time
Drinking all night
Got into a fight
But he had it coming
Since the day he learned to talk
I've got time time time
Time time time
Getting into trouble
'Cause of too much time on my hands

I try to do something
Constructive or good
But everything I do
Winds up misunderstood
I've got time time time
Time time time
Getting into trouble
'Cause of too much time on my hands

Since my girl left me
I've got time to kill
But I'm spending too much
Just trying to get my thrills
I've got time time time
Time time time
Getting into trouble
'Cause of too much time on my hands

Night time, day time
Coffee and wine
Everywhere I look
I've got too much time
Sooner or later
Time's gonna run out
Then I'll have nothing
To complain about
I've got time time time
Time time time
Getting into trouble
'Cause of too much time on my hands
Track Name: Combination Special
A little bit of this and a little bit of that
Mix it all together till it's sweet and sour
Little bit of good and a little bit of bad
Little bit of getting and a little bit of had

Got to take it all
With the ticking of the time bomb clock
Combination special
Gotta get it while it's hot

Take it easy baby we've still got time
To wash it all down with some cheap red wine

Got to take it all
With the ticking of the time bomb clock
Combination special
Got to get it while it's hot
Track Name: Spin It Out
You've got to spin it out
You've got to tell me what it's all about
You've got to spin it right off the road
Kick up the dust and flip it over

Put it right in your face
Put you in your place
Turn on and baby don't look back
Before you give yourself a little heart attack

You've got to spin it out
You've got to tell me what it's all about
You can't have my guts for garters
If I haven't got the guts
You can't end before you start
The pretend to be a glut

I feel like Steve McQueen
Acting seventeen
Surrounded by the blob
and the disbelieving mob

You've got to spin it out
You've got to teel me what it's all about
Put it right into space
Find a brand new place
Turn on and baby don't look back
Before you give yourself
A little heart attack
You've got to spin it out
You've got to tell me what it's all about
Track Name: It's
Who have you been fooling
All this time
I guess I know the answer - it's me
Who was deaf dumb and almost blind
I can see enough to see - it's me
But I know, yes I know
That it's also you
And your bitches' brew

Who's the shoo fly
Caught in the web
Poisoned by the spider - it's me
Who couldn't read the lines
Between what was said
Might as well have been deaf - it's me
But I know, yes I know
That it's also you
So 1,2,3,4 - you want some more?
I'm gonna give it to you!

I know, yes I know
That it's also you, and me
That's the end of my story
You and me
Track Name: Burn
You should have been a cloud
Because you cry all the time

You did your best
To put out my fire

But I can still
Burn down your whole world

You had me down to coals
Smoking badly

But now your tears are petrol
The more they fall
The more my flames will get you
So burn baby burn
Track Name: Bangkok Happy Hour
Woke up this morning
And everything was wrong
My head felt just a Eurovision song
Didn't know if I was facing north or south
Fried fish in my pocket
And a kitten in my mouth
Felt like a street dog
Eating gravy and dirt
Going bus break crazy
With rain for dessert

I've got the Bangkok Blues
Rum and coconut juice
I think I'd better drink
Before the city sinks

Soaked to my shoes but dry inside
Motorpsycho nightmare it's a hell of a ride
Dodging through the traffic
Down the slippery slope
Get me to the bar before you get me broke

I've got the Bangkok blues
Rum and coconut juice
I think I'd better drink
Before this city sinks

TV eye screaming down from the sky
Gimme a drink!
