Track Name: Ice Skates
I remember your soft voice a-whispering
In frail forms swaying through the dawn
And although your words, unclear
Float like sugar in my ear
They bring me sorrow

And now, as tears cloud my sight
I barely make it through the night
My eyes turn green my hair is white
You got me on my knees
And if you please come on home to me
I’ll always be there to catch you

Sinking in time’s bitter flood outside your gate
With silhouettes and needles on my plate
Darling, what a fool I’ve been
You crawled from underneath my skin
And left me hollow

And now, as tears cloud my sight
I barely make it through the night
My eyes turn green my hair is white
You got me on my knees
And if you please come on home to me
I’ll always be there to catch you
Track Name: Regret
I have come close to regret
But somehow managed to forget
Ever since the day we met
I've been going deep in debt

If you want my peaches free
You just got to shake my tree
Sending shivers up my spine
Girl, I'm gonna make you mine

I still smell your warm perfume
The scent will take me to my doom
There's a constant ringing in my ear
I'll drown you in a glass of beer

A river flows in just one way
My darling's gone, she's gone to stay
And every night for you I pray

My love, she don't know my name
But I love her just the same
I don't see the light of day
Happiness is just a spoonful away
Track Name: 3
They say there's a woman behind every man
I ask you why not 3?
Just you and you and you and me

A bird in the hand is better than two on a tree
I ask you why not 3?
Like you and you and you and me

Like Salomon of old
Lying in his den
Surrounded, so I'm told
By a thousand men

They say a woman's love can set a man free
I ask you why not 3?
Just you and you and you and me

Like Columbus' ships sailing through the dark and misty sea
Their number, I believe, it was 3
Like you and you and you and me

Like Salomon of old
Lying in his den
Surrounded, so I'm told
By a thousand men
Track Name: Talkin' A-Bomb Blues
Give me an A
Give me a T
Give me an O
And an M
Now what's that spell?
It's the a-bomb

10 9 8 7 6 5 4
Once again, the smell of war
Close your windows
Hide behind your doors

A b c w x y z
The one eyed cat, he don't fool me
It's a-coming and it scares me to the core

Where has the world gone wrong?
Come on everybody, sing along

Give me an A
Give me a T
Give me an O
And an M
Now what's that spell?
It's the a-bomb

Met this girl from Nagasaki
Thought for once I might get lucky
And get to know the secret in her soup

Shake rattle n rolling in my bed
She made me feel like a nuclear head
Don't need protection cos soon we'll all be dead

Where has the world gone wrong?
Come on everybody, sing along

Give me an A
Give me a T
Give me an O
And an M
Now what's that spell?
It's the a-bomb

Dancing with ol Liza Jane
Between the drops of the acid rain
Pretty soon I think I'll go insane

Somebody, please, quick, get the nurse
And lead me to my greasy hearse
Drive me down the road all in reverse

Where has the world gone wrong?
Come on everybody, sing along

Give me an A
Give me a T
Give me an O
And an M
Now what's that spell?
It's the a-bomb
Track Name: Goodbye
It's time to say goodbye to the hills of California
It's time to say goodbye to the hills of Tennessee
It's time to say goodbye but my love, I just adore you
I just lose my mind

Anyone will tell you I am a bowling pin
Waiting for your buttered knuckles to brush against my chin
Just like my mama told me, I can never win
I just lose my mind

I hear the laser beams between my ears
I swallow spit and roll my cake
I sit and watch as the sunlight disappears
Wondering if I am awake

My little lady lover digs my rock n roll
She always chews her gum, likes to be in control
She takes good care of me, god bless her cherry soul
Makes me lose my mind

The boom box is playing watercolor symphonies
Welcoming committee, please take away my disease
I gotta get out but I just can't find my keys
And I just lose my mind

It's time to say goodbye to the hills of California
It's time to say goodbye to the hills of Tennessee
It's time to say goodbye but my love, I just adore you
I just lose my mind
