  1. Gypsy Woman's Passion 5:17 Lyrics

    Walking all alone in the dead end, the gypsy wants us all around, yeah
    I took your fare, I paid your party
    There’s a hell to spent above these clowns, oh hey hey

    And nobody knows where we’re going too far
    Something for sure or we got it booted, oh hey!

    Down to the tough sweet mountain, yeah
    There’s a psychic woman under in Old North
    Do y’all wanna set this speed off, baby?
    I persuade you don’t I have my fill? Oh hey hey

    And nobody knows where we’re going too far, yeah
    Something was sure or we gotta do, oh hey!
    Maybe we got no direction. Said we got no place to go, no no.
    She shoved all our batch end; am I just a big wad blow? Yeah yeah
    Gypsy woman’s passion, said I’m not gonna let you go
    What’d I say, anyway, let’s get on with it!

    Watch out!

    Now the queens they’re humping back
    And we made it on our train, heading south down the tracks
    She comes to me however that you’ll see (?)
    Our only self is a gypsy need, yeah

    And nobody knows where we’re going too far, yeah
    Something for sure or we gotta do, oh hey! Hell, fucking great!
    We got no direction. Said we got no place to go, no no.
    She shoved all our batch end; am I just a big wad blow? Yeah yeah
    Gypsy woman’s passion, said I’m not gonna let you go
    What’d I say, anyway, let’s take it on home, yeah!

  2. 157 Riverside Avenue 3:57 Lyrics

    We flew into town on Sunday
    Had to find a place by Monday
    Tried Bridgeport and Westport
    ‘Til we found a place that we thought would do
    157 Riverside Avenue

    Saugatuck River’s flowin’
    Mother nature’s colors were showin’
    So cold, so rainy, we couldn’t help feelin’ blue
    Not enough time, too many things to do
    So we just sat back and played some

    Well we met a young girl on Main Street
    Wanted to pass her by
    She was homely, and we were lonely
    She said, “Can I make love to you?”
    I said, “157 Riverside Avenue”

    And see she talk like a guitar, she said
    Oh a fast talkin’ woman

    It’s over, Miss Lena, we’re leaving
    Such a pleasant stay, I must say
    So nice, so easy
    We hate to say goodbye to you
    At 157 Riverside Avenue

  3. Anti-Establishment Man 5:21 Lyrics

    Standing by the roadside
    Old newspaper in my hand.
    Reading yesterday’s headlines,
    Nothing new, I said it’s all the same.
    Everywhere!
    I’m the fool of the year and I’ve been waiting
    Twenty five years of anticipating
    I’ve seen changes in my land

    People I’m here to tell you,
    I’ve been around since the world began.
    Well, mr. politician, reform me if you can,
    I’m an anti-establishment man.

    I’m tired of your treating
    All of my children the same.
    Everywhere!
    Spending all that money
    On a stupid war in vietnam
    (when we need it at home)

    People I’m here to tell you,
    I think it’s ’bout time that the world began (all over!)
    Well, mr. politician, reform me if you can,
    I’m an anti-establishment man.

  4. Lay Me Down 3:51 Lyrics

    I’ve played your game
    And I’ve played it well.
    I’ll be another fool
    To hang upon your wall.
    I laid my heart out
    Like an open book.
    It’s a simple thing and don’t take much
    To crack it open and bleed.
    Lay me down.
    Lay me down when you’re through with me.
    Lay me down.
    Let me bleed when you’re through with me.
    Don’t let me think you’re wrong,
    Just let me fall down.
    I’ll pick myself up again.
    It’s the kindest thing you can do for me,
    So, woman, won’t you lay me down.

    I lied to myself.
    Tried to believe in you.
    But it’s hard to rely on the ghost of someone you hardly even knew
    You bring things out
    Just to bring me down.
    Then you twist them about and shove ’em in my face
    Til my eyes can’t see any good.
    Yeah!
