BEATLE BONES AND SMOKIN' STONES
the lyrics


 

LICK MY DECALS OFF, BABY

SIDE ONE



LICK MY DECALS OFF, BABY

rather than i wanna hold your hand,
i wanna swallow you whole
and i wanna lick you everywhere it's pink
and everywhere you think
whole kit and kaboodle and the kitchen sink
heaven is sexy as hell
life is integrated,
goes together so well
and so on
well, i'm gonna go on and do my washing
well, now you may think i'm crazy but i want you to
lick my decals off, baby
and i don't want you to be lazy
because it is driving me crazy
and this song ain't no sing-song
it's all about the birds and the bees
and where it all went wrong
and where it all belongs
and the earth all go down on their knees
looking for a little ease
she stuck out her tongue and the fun begun [2x]
she stuck it out at me, and i just thumbed my nose
and went on washing my clothes

DOCTOR DARK

mama, mama, here comes doctor dark
horse clipping, clapping and his old hooves making sparks
black leather lady lord carried her bags
the hell horn, hell horn, hell horn
horn rim crimped
glasses look out on the pale hell bent
moon milk run
o lady go home
lord they done cooking done
black lady
black leather lady
done had a white, white, white poor son
[repeat of first two sentences]
gotta get me who i want to
god, lord knows i've got to see that doctor dark
[repeat of first two sentences]
shed a tear on the meadow lark and like
tear to drlnk to brush away
and tear apart and black and white and like
[repeat of last two sentences]
the moon a pail of milk spilled down black in the night
little girl lost a tear and her kite
to the night and like and light
god, lord knows i've got to see that doctor dark

I LOVE YOU, YOU BIG DUMMY

love has no body
i love you, you big dummy
no body has love [2x]
breathe deep
breathe high
breathe life
don't breathe a lie
i love you, you big dummy

BELLERIN' PLAIN

parapliers the willow dipped
rolled roots gnarled like rakers
this hollow hole doesn't hold no jokers or fakers
don't fall by no jokers or fakers
puller down to the stirring hay acres
parapliers pinches a levy and pulled way through the toe
foothills, locomotives walked and sugar beets rolled
down the tracks
sunbum bounce soot off the black smokestacks
parapliers pinched up slow down the sky
blue 'o' poured the engineer's voice whistling down low
and piped like clacks by the old scarecrow
and pots and pans burn the fireman's hands
till the kettle leaped fire around the belly 'o'
the bayou boy bums with sunken gums
and pits his strength to the seventh sons down
parapliers rumbled like a straight iron gun
like a red-hot iron through the egg white 'o'
sunnyland drum, horn blow
sun like a bubble pop yellow, down she goes
my cowcatcher whistled like a steel flash scream
hose sucked out for water and the wheeldriver
sparkled like an indian flint
and the fireman and the brakeman bent
and waved his long red underwear arm all aboard
the lantern flared and the caboose waved a green gone on

WOE-IS-UH-ME-BOP

woe-is-a-me-bop
oh-drop-a-re-bop-oh
everybody's doing it
please don't let them ruin it oh
