Good Luck Lyrics

cover-goodluck


“Shake Like Jello”

Sat on my bed and thought about what you said
Biting my nails and going out of my head
“Baker Street” is playing on the radio
Makes me wish I played a little saxophone

Hands start clapping, everything’s shaking
Makes me miss the way you shake like Jello

I got a cure for heartache with my name on it
All I’ve gotta do is get my hands upon it
And pop the top, raise my hands up
Peel the label off my bottle, gonna need a cup

Hands start clapping and everything’s shaking
It makes me miss the way you shake like Jello

Things don’t look up ‘til you hit bottom
Everyone always says “you’ll see better days”
Choices in life, I guess I’ve got ‘em, oh yeah
But, I lose control when that Jello shakes

Sat on my bed and thought about what you said
Biting my nails and going out of my head
“Baker Street” is playing on the radio
Makes me wish I played a little saxophone

Hands start clapping and everything’s shaking
Makes me miss the way you shake like Jello

Shake baby shake, Shake like Jello
Shake baby shake, Shake it like Jello
Shake baby shake, Shake it like Jello
Shake baby shake, Shake it like Jello
Shake baby shake


“Be Your Man”

When you said “you could be a little rough with me”
I nearly lost my head
I’d been watching you so long
Stayed away, out of the crowds
I thought you’d never cast your eyes on me

But, these encounters start so quiet
The silence could start a riot
Oh, my Maryanne, it’s more than I can stand
Let your boy should you baby, he’s your man

Now I howl out like a beast
Know your secret’s safe with me
Dissatisfied by every meal
Beat it out into the moonlight
Scream it out until it feels right
Begging anyone out there to hear

And these encounters start so quiet
The silence could start a riot

Oh, my Maryanne, it’s more than I can stand
Let your boy show you baby he’s your man

Oh, my Maryanne, it’s more than I can stand
Let your boy show you baby he’s your man


“One Of These Days”

Sitting on the brink of 20
Staring at the stars
Wondering who and what we are

On the patio trying to get lucky
Down at the local bar

Feeling low and looking pretty from days of working hard
Already with a boyfriend on your arm
Coolly smoking cigarettes with a blatant disregard
For wondering who and what we are.

One of these days, I might get the nerve to call you
One of these days, you might answer the phone
One of these days, I might dial the right number
One of these day, you just might be home

Sitting on the brink of 20
Looking at our years
And wondering who and what we are

Cracking jokes down at the local bar
And wondering who and what we are

We played the ponies, we played our cards

And one of these days I might get the nerve to call you
One of these days you might answer the phone
One of these days I might dial the right number
One of these days you just might be home

Oh Yeah

We played the ponies, we played our cards

And one of these day I might get the nerve to call you
One of these days you might answer the phone
One of these days I might dial the right number
One of these days you just might be home

One of these days
One of these days
One of these days
One of these days


“C’Mon Honey “

C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t you be like that

When we get together and go out on the town
Or go out to a party at your sisters
Seems like little things start a whole lotta trouble
I ain’t trying to burst your bubble

C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t you be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that

All I want is to have a good time
Have a couple of smokes and some red red wine
All of a sudden, out of the blue
Something changes your attitude

C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that

C’mon!!

Ahhhhh
Ahhhhh
Ahhhhh
Ahhhhh

Awww, C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that
C’mon honey, don’t you be like that
C’mon honey, don’t be like that


“Rockin’ Chain Money “

I got rockin’ chair money
Got it the hard hard way
I fought in every battle
From the start to the VJ Day

And now I’ll rock, yeah rock
Oh rock, rock on down the line

Some folks seem to get jealous
Some don’t seem to care
I got rocking chair money, honey
To rock on away from here

I love to rock, yeah rock
Oh rock, let’s rock on down the line

I rock away out on the ocean
I rocked from here to there
My baby stepped out while I way gone
Now she don’t get my rocking chair

Cause I love to rock, yeah rock
Oh rock, let’s rock on down the line

I’ll soon get my big check baby
Then we’ll have some fun
Cause rockin’ chair money, honey
Is better than toting a gun

‘Cause I love to rock, yeah rock
Oh rock, rock on down the line

Honey, let’s go honky tonkin’
Let’s honky tonk all night
Lollygag, smooch and love
Do it all up right

‘Cause I love to rock, yeah rock
Oh rock, let’s rock on down the line

I’ve got rockin’ chair money
Got it the hard hard way
I fought in every battle
From the start to the VJ Day

Some folks seem to get jealous
Some don’t seem to care
Oh, I’ve got rockin’ chair money, honey
To rock on away from here


“Built For Speed”

(Lyrics by Ward Hayden)

For speed, baby’s build for speed
For speed, baby’s build for speed
She goes bye, it makes me want to cry
Little baby’s built for speed

In the city it’s a pity that you’re all alone
Should be lined up ‘round the corner, trying to take you home
Sippin’ on a drink, maybe waitin’ on a friend
Let’s get this party started, see how the story ends
Come on pretty baby I know what you need
Let me take you for a ride in my long limousine

For speed, my baby’s build for speed
For speed, yeah my baby’s build for speed
She goes bye, it makes me want to cry
My little baby’s built for speed

Fuel consumption goin’ way too fast
I better slow down before we run out of gas
Had to hit the brakes before we got outta town
I ran a red light, she said “now baby, slow down”
Motor’s overheating, NO that ain’t no good
Engine’s born to run, let it do what it should

You know I almost got a ticket when we blew by a cop
Thought I heard a siren, she said “baby, don’t stop”
Red lights were flashing, I pushed it to the floor
The twinkle in her eye screaming “give it some more”
Pulled off the highway and she started to shout
“Thanks for driving honey, now baby let me out”

For speed, my baby’s build for speed
For speed, yeah my baby’s built for speed
She goes bye, it makes me want to cry
Little baby’s built for speed

For speed, yeah my baby’s build for speed
For speed, oh my baby’s build for speed
She goes bye, it makes me want to cry
Little baby’s built for speed, alright!!


“All The Way Up To Heaven”

All the way up to heaven
All the way down to hell
I own every star up in the sky above the place I dwell

All the way up to heaven
All the way down to hell
I own every star up in the sky above
“I feel I’m getting closer” I spoke out to the air
The further I’m away from you the more I think I care

All the way up to heaven
All the way down to hell
I own every star up in the sky above the place I dwell

What keeps a body going, holds a train to the track
Are there answers in a love song that’ll always bring you back?
This here is my lover’s prayer, you know I’m sending it out to you
Can the things that I make up for outweigh everything you do?

All the way up to heaven
All the way down to hell
I own every star up in the sky above the place I dwell

I had a dream that came bursting at the seams
I belonged to you and you belonged to me
Love had won out over misery
And I owned everything from here to everafter and all that’s in between

All the way up to heaven
All the way down to hell
I own every star up in the sky above the place dwell
I own every star up in the sky


“Centralia, PA”

Rivers don’t run orange out in nature don’t you know?
Rivers are the lifeblood of the land
These hills got carved out a million years ago,
When no one was around to mine their coal

There’s a town in Pennsylvania
Been on fire for 50 years
Claimed the lives of the resident who once lived there
An omen that’s wide open for all to understand
The gap ‘tween hell and the promised land

In these hills there’s a limited supply
We’re gonna keep on digging until the well runs dry
No money without fuel, that we cannot afford to take
God bless the human race

Little Todd Dombowski almost fell to his doom
Playing in his backyard on Valentine’s afternoon
Instead of chasing young girls hearts he clung to his potential tomb
Clinging to the ground like a flower in bloom

In these hills there’s a limited supply
We’re gonna keep on digging until the well runs dry
No money without fuel, that we cannon afford to take
God bless the human race

Then the state bought out the town and the fire it still burn
Reducing all within it’s path to ash and the world, it still turns
There’s a town in Pennsylvania that’ll burn for 300 years
The government took its zip code and it disappeared

In these hills there’s a limited supply
We’re gonna keep on digging until the well runs dry
No money without fuel, that we cannon afford to take
God bless the human race


“It’s Your Choice”

Pick up the pieces
Get a lay of the land
Nothing here’s promised to animal or man
Trying to get by doing the best that we can
If life is a river the world is a damn

Listen to the voices or tune ‘em out
Shake on the floor or jump up and shout
Turn on the radio in the bible belt
Take your licks and get bible welts

It’s hard to believe there’s no great beyond
It all seemed so real
We’re just frogs in the pond
Hoping and praying ‘til we croak and we’re gone
Oh no no no

Oh no no no It’s your choice, It’s your choice
Oh no no no It’s your choice, It’s your choice

Lying here dying as quiet as a mouse
Waiting for the call up to the house
A seat at the table, a few cups of wine
I ain’t saying I’ve had a better time

Listen to the wisdom, read from the book
Take a couple of years and a second look
Block out the static, sit alone in a room
Find yourself singing to a whole new tune

So much can go wrong, so much can go right
Go to bed in the evening, turn out the light
Put good in the world, open your eyes
The meaning of life is a big surprise

Oh no no no, it’s your choice, it’s your choice
Oh no no no, it’s your choice, it’s your choice
Oh no no no, it’s your choice, it’s your choice


“UUU”

I am an alibi
I’m your resource
I am a distant planets orbit changing course
You are an art museum with abstract open doors

I am an animal, I am unpure
I’m who your mother told you to ignore
To you I am something, something unsure
You’re a house on Halloween with all the lights turned off

Well I guess this your world, isn’t it?
That’s how you’re playing the game
Got a laundry list of complaints that all include your name
And no matter what I tell you, you don’t hear a word I say
Rather take your advice from strangers as they shower you with praise

Too delicate a flower for my untrained hands to hold
And baby I don’t mean no harm, even flowers are bought and sold

And you you you you you you you
You you you you you you you
