Track Name: Ten A Penny
What sort would you get for that price?
Not much I’m sure!
I want premium, 1-900
Get what you pay for

chorus
--------
Elle McPherson, not John Howard
That’s the kind I want
Mai Tais on the beach at sunset
Give me dreams like that

Ten a Penny, Ten a Penny, Ten a Penny, Ten a Penny

Don’t wake me up, I’m having a good one
It’s been a while
I can’t say what is happening to me
But it’s making me smile

Cause when I’m coming on strong I feel so alive
And when I see the fearless leader – I pull my blankets high
Track Name: Lonely Life
Early to rise early to die
Born into heroin addiction and lies
There’s hurt and there’s pain, canyons of shame
Can’t stand the parents but you love them the same

chorus
--------
How can we celebrate this lonely life?
Want to turn my head and fade away
How can we justify the endless strife?
Violence won’t ever go away, won’t go away

Can’t offer peace can’t offer trust
So hard to get through every day without loss
But I see you care - through cold eyes you stare
Acceptance that your convictions don’t even care
Track Name: Soul Mates
Once in a lifetime
Your soul mate is out there
Only when the planets
Are aligned

Thinking with one mind
Hearts beating together
Perfect union
One of a kind

Chorus
---------
Out there
Somewhere some place
Searching, waiting for you
Find her now

Once in a lifetime
Your soul mate is out there
Only when the planets
Are aligned

Thinking with one mind
Hearts beating together
Perfect union
One of a kind

Only when the planets
Are aligned
Track Name: Mu Theory
Now way back so long
A couple of lads Walt and Don
Heard Duke & Bird Jazz radio
Charlie Parker New York Metro

Beatnik boys turtle necks
Smoking dope and Lucky Strikes
Bad rock Leather Canary
Red Balloon, customary

Chorus
---------
We’re playing all night
Hold tight
Mu Theory

Black cow drink it down
Cuervo gold world renown
Rum and coke make me a zombie
Time to tour in the Kombi

Count 4 add 2
Slash chord sounds like Mu
Sharp nine in time
Flat five we’re’ alive, yeah
Track Name: Man Cave
A sacred place of worldly pleasures, Aladdin’s cave, just for you
Entry by invitation only, a refuged from the outside world
A hardware store, an IT centre, power tools or techy toys
Ian has a grand piano, his mate has got a woodwork lathe

I need a man cave, a mini bar, recliner chair
I need a man cave ooh ooh
I need a man cave ooh ooh
I need a man cave, a plasma screen and huge speakers

Grown up toys for grown up boys, it’s just the price that changes
Leave us to our own devices, we mean that literally
It doesn’t matter what’s in there, it’s all about your space
Your toys your noise, your mess your joys, a paradise for boys

I need a man cave that’s fully loaded, that’s what I crave
I need a man cave ooh ooh
I need a man cave ooh ooh
I need a man cave, a mini bar, recliner chair

I need a man cave ooh ooh
I need a man cave ooh ooh
I need a man cave that’s fully loaded, that’s what I crave
Track Name: Nice Guys
Jimmy was a sweet kid, opened doors for ladies
Suckered by a thieving guru, who took his money and pride

Ripped off by a guy on eBay, stalked by a freak
Hit and run by bicycle, and bashed up in the park

Sue the good Samaritan, bite the hand that feeds
Stick it to the peasants, watch them, watch them bleed

Don't be fooled by the golden rule, they don't all follow it at school


Keep opinions to yourself, or you'll be penalised

Boy scouts in expensive suits, carry knives and laptops too

Watch them shove it up your arse, nice guys, nice guys, nice guys
...come last

Spammed by Viagra, worms and trojans lurk
Letters from Nigerian lawyers, sells riches to the fools
Bank fees coming thick and fast, taxes raised you’re coming last
Hide the jewels amongst the swine, then stick ‘em one more time
Track Name: Bad Santa
It was the night before Xmas and all through the house
Not a creature was sober, not even a mouse

He's got a little list, well, a not so little list
He knows who's been bad and good
Who's been dull and who's been kissed

He's got a longer list, who's been wicked, who's been sinning
He ticks them off, one by one
No wonder he is grinning

Ho ho ho, he’s coming down the chimney
Ho ho ho, he’s coming down the hall
Santa knows where all the bad girls live, he's visiting them all

Eggnog with too much brandy, full of Xmas cheer
Santa's feeling friendly, Oh I think it is the beer
Stuffed with Xmas pudding, over did the brandy sauce
Santa's feeling bloated, I feel sorry his horse?

Carrots are so boring, you can keep your glass of milk
Let me at that single malt, Santa wants some silk
Stockings made of wool are not what Santa fancies
Give him fishnet castoffs made from Paris can can dancers
