Best T-Shirt
c. '12 Vlayman

--
See you there wearing a silk skirt
See you there, lieing in the dirt
I know, I know you like to flirt
I mean I know you like to flirt
But didja hafta, baby, in my best T-shirt?
didja hafta, baby?
--
Stop
Bridge
Stop
See you there wearing a silk skirt
See you there, crying in the dirt
I mean I know you like to flirt
I mean I know you like to make me hurt
But didja hafta, baby, in my best T-shirt?

A re-do-do:

Final (Version 2)
c.. '12 Vlayman

I know that you wanna negoiate
You must hate that I have nothin' to say
I know you think I oughta deliberate
But I won't masturbate, at least not today

I reckon you feel I oughta understand
But man-oh-man, I must be slow
I know you think that I'll think again
But I'll tell you friend, you oughta know

CH:
This ain't the hardest thing I ever done
This is fun watchin' you cry now
Ain't no chance that I'm gonna step on back, oh no,
What I done is final

I can see that you're startin' to understand
That's right man, it's how I said
Hard to believe ya took so long to comprehend
But now ya got it man
It's good my friend, this won't end with ya dead

Missin' Us
c. '12 Vlayman

And so you quit witha email

We let you into our thing,
Even tho' you wouldna/couldna sing
And let you put a little in
To the thing that we been doin'

Ch: All yer fancy kinda bling
Ain't make up for that thing
We didna want you to be kissin' ass
And I betch'er missin' us
Yeah, I betch'er missin' us

So go ahead and get this message
Pull it out of the wreckage
That you mebbe wish you left
As we move on ahead.

And mebbe you is who we oughta thank
For helpin' end all of the wank
You took it with you when you went
I guess we got you to thank

Ch: All yer fancy kinda bling
Ain't make up for that thing
We didna want you to be kissin' ass
And I betch'er missin' us
Yeah, I betch'er missin' us

Funky Claude
c. '12 Vlayman

Y'all come down to Montreaux, On that Swiss lake shoreline,

And it's soul and rock and roll, and folk and all that jazz,
Courtesy of Funky Claude.

They got some big stages, and some smaller ones, too,
In some big concert halls and some smaller venues,
And it's world class and there's been a thousand recordings
Done live as hell, at least once on the The Rolling Truck Stones
Mobile thing
Awe, Funky Claude

Dave Brubeck, Bowie, Zappa and Les McCann
Nina Simone and Clapton, Deep Purple, Prince and Van the Man
Miles Davis, Cocker, Aretha, Leonard Cohen and Bill Evans,
B.B. King and Sting, ZZ Top, Stevie Ray and Benson, Paul

Sack Cloth & Ashes (1-20-13 challenge)
c. '12 Vlayman Products

There ain't no other thing that you can do
There ain't no other way out there for you
You dress the part, you try to succeed
No matter what yer gonna hafta bleed

You been wearing
Sack cloth and ashes
2
I know it's lame, I don't know how to begin
No matter what I do, it grows back in

I been wearing
Sack cloth and ashes

People change and snakes shed their skin
but no matter what they do, it grows right back in
We try so hard, we give it all we got
No matter what, we ain't ever got enuff

We been wearing
Sack cloth and ashes

The Perp Walk
c. '13 Vlayman Products

You walk outta there with yer coat over yer hands
You walk outta there, lookin' so grand
Except ya got, yer coat over yer hands
You walk outta there, lookin' so grand

Doin' the perp walk

You was waitin' there, altho' ya thought about runnin'
You act like you ain't care, that they was comin',
And now ya got yer head down on yer chest,
And we don't think, ya really lookin' yer best

Doin' the perp walk 2x

That you'd get caught, was just inevitable,
And them you bought, is now regretable
They're like you, inna police parade
All dressed up, and goin' away

Doin' the perp walk 3x

The Shelf
c. '13 Vlayman Products

Well, it's on,
it's never been anything else,
It's on, sittin' on,
the back shelf,
Well, it's there,
it's never been anywhere else,
It's there, right there,
It's there on the back shelf.

Where ya keep it,
Where ya keep it,
At night.

Well, it's here,
It's never been anything else
Yeah, it's right here,
I took it offa the shelf,
Well, it's gone,
It's never belonged to anyone else,
And now it's gone, all gone,
We tore down that shelf.

Where ya kept it,
Where ya kept it,
At night.

And it don't matter, if ya done it like ya should

In Decision
c. '13 Vlayman Produx

I'm on the edge of fallin' off to Nevermore
I got no wedge, to buy myself inside the door
Can't get myself inside the door

I'm in the middle of everything that's goin' on
You love him and she loves him and all I got's this song
all I gots this song right now

CH:
Gonna take makin' a choice, whether or not I'm gonna voice
What I want over what I been given
I'm in decision

SOLO

I'm standin' here, lookin' at y'all fuckin' up
It's pretty clear, we mighta used up all our luck
we prob'ly used up all our luck

I Was One
c. '13 Vlayman Produx.

It's funny how nobody knows my name yet
There's so many things about me that they'll never get
How I think and why I do and why I did what I'm gonna done
They can't conceive and will never believe that I was one.

It's silly how nobody knows my face before now
There's a certain look I got that'll be all they see in their dreams
It's me and it's mine and it goes with what I'm gonna done
They can't conceive and will never believe that I was one..

It's a hoot that no one knows what I sound like
There's probably a accent to some and a certain evil tone
But I'll speak out forever thru what I'm gonna done
They can't conceive and will never believe that I was one. 2x
SOLO

I'm laughin' hard stand here lookin' in the mirror
I'm all in black leather and filthy combat gear
I hate me and everyone else and they'll know that by what I'm gonna done
They can't conceive and will never believe that I was one.

They're Missing
c. '13 Vlayman Products

Now you've come back and you think it's a special day
Cuz you're here now you think ya oughta get a parade
Now you've come back and you think it's gonna be great
Cuz you're here now you think it's time to celebrate

CH:
Awe~, what they're missing
All of yer kisses
It ain't you they're missing


Now yer waiting, standin' inna middle of the street
Seems they're late now, where's everybody for yer meet-n-greet?
Cuz you're here now and it's time for the repartee
Now you've come back and you think it's time to party

CH:
Awe~, what they're missing
All of yer kisses
It ain't you they're missing

When you left me, I went and got a big broom
And I used it, cleaned this place like a dirty, dirty room
I took 'em out, yeah, and then I put 'em down
No matter how hard you look you won't find no one around

CH:
All of 'em are missing
All of your kisses
It ain't you, they're just missing

Our Secret_w_Grankspoine&WRC
c. '13 Vlayman Produx

There ain't no tellin' the story, That's sompin's gotta be said
There'll be no discussion of what happened, How the walls got
painted red

It's gotta stay our secret
Keep it under the bed
There can't be no leakin' it
Somebody ended up dead

We thought we was ready, we thought we was prepared
We was locked and loaded, none of us was even scared

CH

Some times things don't go right, they just don't go as planned
Sometime it just ain't yer night, and so we lost another man

Done (What Have You)
c. '13 Vlayman Products

When I look yer way
I see things ya show me
Things I don't wanna see

What are you?
Where are you from?

Nothin' goes away
It dies and dies and dies
But always will be

What are you?
Where are you from?
Who are you?
What have you done?

How you do those things
Nothin' I believe
Can explain it to me

What are you?
Where are you from?
Who are you?
What have you done?

What are you?
Where are you from?
Who are you?
What have you done?
