Warren Zevon - Excitable boy lyrics



Excitable boy by Warren Zevon


Written By Warren Zevon & LeRoy P. Marinell
c. 1976 Zevon Music/BMI and Polite Music/ASCAP
Well, he went down to dinner in his Sunday best
Excitable boy, they all said
And he rubbed the pot roast all over his chest
Excitable boy, they all said
He took in the four a.m. show at the Clark
Excitable boy, they all said
And he bit the usherette's leg in the dark
Excitable boy, they all said
Well, he's just an excitable boy
He took little Suzie to the Junior Prom
Excitable boy, they all said
And he raped her and killed her, then he took her home
Excitable boy, they all said
Well, he's just an excitable boy
After ten long years they let him out of the home
Excitable boy, they all said
And he dug up her grave and built a cage with her bones
Excitable boy, they all said
Well, he's just an excitable boy

Mohammed's radio by Warren Zevon


Mohammed's Radio
written by Warren Zevon
Everybody's restless and they've got no place to go
Someone's always trying to tell them
Something they already know
So their anger and resentment flow
But don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio
You know, the Sheriff's got his problems too
He will surely take them out on you
In walked the village idiot and his face was all aglow
He's been up all night listening to Mohammed's Radio
Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio
Everybody's desperate trying to make ends meet
Work all day, still can't pay the price of gasoline and meat
Alas, their lives are incomplete
Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio
You've been up all night listening for his drum
Hoping that the righteous might just might just might just come
I heard the General whisper to his aide-de-camp
"Be watchful for Mohammed's lamp"
Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long Mohammed's RadioWarren Zevon Lyrics Index

Wolfsheim - Old Man's Valley lyrics



Old Man's Valley by Wolfsheim


I said goodbye to the river...
The mountains and the trees
Can't you hear they are singing
Their song of birth and agony
I said goodbye to the seasons that were never insincere
By myself i am singing their song
That no one wants to hear
Many words, many dreams i've got to give
But in this racing world there is no place for me
And when i leave today no memories remain...

Wolfsheim - Lovesong lyrics



Lovesong by Wolfsheim


Wait my dear ... no jealousies
Silly thing ... you can't know how i feel
Come take my hand i will show you the flame
Burning secrets, burning wishes ... your name
Don't be insecure, don't be afraid ... i'll hold you tight
Oh, virgin weakness, infinite sweetness ... that's you so let's dance
All alone
I want to kiss you, want to feel you deep
Your silky skin, a tender touch,
A sign that promises so much
I want to kiss you, want to feel you deep
And so we dance
Nothing ever spoils my joy of loving you,
Of looking in your eyes ... i couldn't be that blind
That i won't crave for you
And still we dance all alone
I want to kiss you ...

Wolfsheim - Now I Fall lyrics



Now I Fall by Wolfsheim


Sometimes I can't fall asleep
You lie beside me and I weep
Dancing shadown on the wall
Onceyou caught me ... now I fall
Sometimes I feel love and trust
Turn to anger and disgust
Crawling darkness in between
No light in reach ... no silver sheen
Sometimes I feel so ashamed
To be mercilessly framed
Idle hands and eyes that stare
But no escape that I would dare
... love and trust ...
Pain increasing every day
No truth left I won't betray
One day our way leads to an end
Why do I cry ... I understand
That it's too late for me to go
I should have left you years ago
Beyond this point of no return

Play it all night long by Warren Zevon


Play It All Night Long
written by Warren Zevon
Grandpa p**sed his pants again
He don't give a damn
Brother Billy has both guns drawn
He ain't been right since Vietnam
"Sweet home Alabama"
Play that dead band's song
Turn those speakers up full blast
Play it all night long
Daddy's doing Sister Sally
Grandma's dying of cancer now
The cattle all have brucellosis
We'll get through somehow
"Sweet home Alabama"
Play that dead band's song
Turn those speakers up full blast
Play it all night long
I'm going down to the Dew Drop Inn
See if I can drink enough
There ain't much to country living
Sweat, p**s, jizz and blood
"Sweet home Alabama"
Play that dead band's song
Turn those speakers up full blast
Play it all night longWarren Zevon Lyrics Index

Roland the headless thompson gunner by Warren Zevon


Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner
Written By Warren Zevon & David Lindell
Roland was a warrior from the Land of the Midnight Sun
With a Thompson gun for hire, fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody fray
Through sixty-six and seven they fought the Congo war
With their fingers on their triggers, knee-deep in gore
For days and nights they battled the Bantu to their knees
They killed to earn their living and to help out the Congolese
Roland the Thompson gunner...
His comrades fought beside him - Van Owen and the rest
But of all the Thompson gunners, Roland was the best
So the CIA decided they wanted Roland dead
That son-of-a-b**ch Van Owen blew off Roland's head
Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Norway's bravest son
Time, time, time
For another peaceful war
But time stands still for Roland
'Til he evens up the score
They can still see his headless body stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
Roland searched the continent for the man who'd done him in
He found him in Mombassa in a barroom drinking gin
Roland aimed his Thompson gun - he didn't say a word
But he blew Van Owen's body from there to Johannesburg
Roland the headless Thompson gunner...
The eternal Thompson gunner
still wandering through the night
Now it's ten years later but he still keeps up the fight
In Ireland, in Lebanon, in Palestine and Berkeley
Patty Hearst heard the burst of Roland's Thompson gun and bought itWarren Zevon Lyrics Index

Wolfsheim - Anyway lyrics

Wolfsheim - Anyway lyrics



Anyway by Wolfsheim


I awake... and i look...
Down at my sleeping face
From the cold...
Persuading melodies
Want me to join this...
Unreal dance
An unholy humming
That echoes and dies
Can i resist...
Be torn into laughter
And can i persist
Being torn into light
They want me to join this...
Unreal dance
That forces my mind
Just to follow thy will
Anyway...
Any way must lead out into me
Anyway i can't go on crawling
Anyway, i must get rid of it all...
Endless halls... dancing shades
Spinning round
Twisting their skinny limbs
Stench of doom i smell...
They want me to join this...
Unreal dance
And don't want to offer me...
Any further chance
Careworn... down torn...
Into the swirl of their senselessness...
Cosy emptiness...
It wants me to join this...
Unreal dance
Left alone... anywhere you go...
You'll be caught in your fear again

Wolfsheim - Following You lyrics

Wolfsheim - Following You lyrics



Following You by Wolfsheim


You're walking through the night
Still can't near in light
And I'm following behind
You're playing games of sin
None that fools can win
And I'm following behind
(3x) Following you...
Do lovers understand your ply?
You command and they'll obey
And I'm watching from behind
One step forward, two steps back
I'm still following your track
And I'm watching from behind
(3x) Following you...
Waiting here beside you
Waiting for your call
Watching liars passing by
Uh, I hate them all
Don't you realize
That I'm the only one
Who's good for you?
You're so heartlessly sincere
But I'm still following you endlessly
I'm following behind
You ain't whore, you ain't nun
On the hunt and on the run
And I'm watching from behind
Always cheating, telling lies
Behind your door I heard you sigh:
"Oh prudence, come and rescue me!"
(12x)
"Prudence come and rescue me!"
Following you...

Warren Zevon - The envoy lyrics



The envoy by Warren Zevon


"Nuclear Arms in the Middle East
Israel's attacking the Iraqis
The Syrians are mad at the Lebanese
And Baghdad does whatever she please"
"Looks like another threat to world peace for the Envoy"
"Things got hot in El Salvador
CIA got caught couldn't do no more
He's got diplomatic immunity
He's got a lethal weapon that nobody sees"
"Looks like another threat to world peace for the Envoy
Send the Envoy
Send the Envoy"
"Whenever there's a crisis
The President sends his Envoy in
Guns in Damascus
Woe to Israel
Yeah"
"Nuclear arms in the Middle East
Israel's attacking the Iraqis
The Syrians are mad at the Lebanese
And Baghdad do whatever she please"
"Looks like another threat to world peace for the Envoy
Send the Envoy
Send the Envoy
Send the Envoy
Except for Me
Yeah
Except for Me
Except for Me"
