the SPOTLIGHT KID

SIDE ONE



I'M GONNA BOOGLARIZE YOU BABY

the moon was a drip on a dark hood
and they were driving around and around
vital willy told weeping milly
i'm gonna booglarize you baby [2x]
if i can find a place to park my machine out of town
milly told willy: come on over to my house
and i'll slow your machine right down
because listen: vitals gives me the willies
driving around and around [2x]
if you keep beating around the bush you'll lose your push [2x]
[repeating of parts]
tush tush boy i gotta boogie
tush tush boy i gotta boogie around
there ain't no place to stop around
boy i gotta boogie [3x]
said weeping milly:
now willy come over to my place
and i'll slow you right down
you lose your push tush
when you beat around the bush
if you act reserved
i know somebody paying for your parking place
you got to take your space
tush tush you lose your push
when you beat around [2x]
when you beat around the bush
boy i gotta boogie [3x]
i'm gonna booglarize you baby [3x]

WHITE JAM

she serves me flowers and yams
and in the night when i'm full
she brings me white yams
and i don't know where i am [2x]
in the meadow she brings me
like a bee she stings me
and i don't know where i am
clouds clinging to us
and the sun looking through us
and in the night when i'm full
she brings me white jam [2x]
and i don't know where i am
[repeating of parts]

BLABBER 'N' SMOKE

all you ever do is blabber and smoke
there's a big pane in your window
and all your waters turn to rope
it's gonna hang you all
dangle you all
hang you all
if you don't hurry there will be no hope
why don't you quit acting like a dope?
all you ever do is blabber and smoke
it doesn't matter where you got your start
which side of your head - oh - you wear your heart
clean up the air and treat the animals fair
i can't help but think you treat love like a joke
time is running out
and all you ever do is
blabber and smoke [4x]

WHEN IT BLOWS ITS STACKS

when it blows its stacks [5x]
he ain't nowhere to be found
when a wolf's claws wear way down
better watch out there's a man-eater around
hide all the women in town [2x]
when it blows its stacks, when it blows
all you girls make no mistake
he's as cold as a snake sleeping in the shade
he takes them out
out on an iceberg
hands them a ronson
says 'i'll see you around'
when he straightens up
they all bend down
he doesn't bow to bad water
he doesn't pussy foot around
[repeating of parts]
