Track Name: I got nothing (but I feel fine)
Ain´t saying nothing, nothing but the truth
if you don´t believe me that is up to you
and it is you, who is acting like a fool
I don´t wanna hear you singing the same old Blues

Well from the beginning music was my fate
and for sure you knew that before being my mate
now it is too, too late; it´s no use for a debate
Yes I´m gonna move I´ve got a date

Uuuuuuuuuhh that´s it,
That´s another argument with my babe
well, you know, I´m a musician
and that is exactly what is all about
because the stages doesn´t knock on your door and
say: Hello, do you want to play here?
No, you’ve got to look for them
get on the van, back on the road, up the line
If you want to play, you got to be on the road, man

And this is something my babe
don´t want to understand, you Know?
Well, I´m gonna tell you what I do. Listen:
I go, play, get my money and drive back home
and in the moment I come across my door
she starts singing the same old song.

Goes this way:
“I know you don´t love me ´cos you´re never at home
you´re always on the spree while I´m here alone
uuuuuuuh, always here on my own”

And that´s no fun, ´cos I´m gonna tell you what I got:
I got nothing, I got nothing but a band on the road
But she doesn´t seem to understand, she kept on saying:

“That´s a vagrant´s pastime , not a decent job
You don´t get enough money and you make me sob
uuuuuuuuh, oh, yes you make me sob”

I got nothing, I got nothing but a band on the road
I got nothing, I got nothing but a band on the road

I´ve been playing in the big, big cities
and the small villages too
and It has been worth every place i´ve been to
´cos I´ve been appreciated and understood

So come on please please please try not to forget
all the things that I´ve left behind
to live the life I choose it´s the risk that I take
This is all I´ve got but I feel fine
Track Name: Big Bird
Open up the sky
because I’m coming up to you
so send down your wings
It'll bring me to you

You know I’m standing at the station
ready to go
big ol' airplane, you know I trust in you so

Get on up big bird
to my baby’s love
Get on up big bird
to my baby’s, love
get on up big bird
I got to make it heard
Get on up big bird
I got to make it heard
Get on up!

Way down here
you up there
well we know is
It ain't no fair

´cause I got nothing but this luggage
holding my things
hard to keep is, my babe
and there’s nothing down

Get on up big bird
to my baby’s love
Get on up big bird
to my baby’s, love
get on up big bird
I got to make it heard
Get on up big bird
I got to make it heard
Get on up!
Track Name: Like the Devil (I will love you)
I would like to be your dinner tonight
Hot barbeque, red beans and rice
You taste my sugar and I’ll try your honey
I didn´t know you cooked so nice
It seems we’re gonna have a good time tonight
I feel so horny and you’re out of sight

Well let’s go down to it, it’s gonna be so nice
Let me undress you slowly, let me feast my eyes
It’s gonna be a wild night, and maybe a wilder day
Let me move you baby like nobody can

I’m gonna shake you babe
Yes I’m gonna make you move
Oh honey don’t you fear and enjoy I wish you would
Love you like the Devil, like no angel ever could

Well let’s go down to it, it’s gonna be so nice
Let me undress you slowly, let me feast my eyes
I’m gonna shake you babe, yes I’m gonna make you move
Love you like the Devil, like no angel ever could

Uuuuuuuuuuh babe, how do you feel after that?
Sweetly tired as I am or would you like a second round?
Well I think I heard you saying yeah
Ok let’s go for it now
I’m still feeling hungry, gonna eat you up
Sure you’re guilty woman of driving me mad
Ain’t gonna be mercy, no mercy for you
I’m gonna rock you babe, and that is for sure

I wanna rock you babe
Like your back ain’t got no bones
Come on let’s do it like it never has been done
Will rock you in the night time
And rock you till the break of dawn

I’m still feeling hungry, gonna eat you up
Sure you’re guilty woman of driving me mad
I wanna rock you babe
Like your back ain’t got no bones
Will rock you in the night time
And rock you till the break of dawn
Track Name: Keep on Keepin' on
Please don´t you come to me moaning, don´t you plea
nightlife gets you tired, ain´t gonna be the same no more
I don´t care, babe, I don´t care
we´ve got enough reasons to go ahead

Reasons to keep us going further up the road
I don´t want to see you yawning, better wink at me
don´t you say, honey, don´t you say
this is a caprice, our lives are a waste

Please don´t you say we are not the same we used to be
even if it´s true I would prefer to live a lie
The beat goes on, that´s what I need
keep on keeping on, keep the faith
Track Name: Up the line
You used to love me, you said I was your desire
but you acted staid lately caused throw my love away
I´m cutting out, babe. Lord I´m going back up the line
if I stay another day you are going to
uuuh, make me loose my mind

Cut me from my home when I was nothing but a child
made all kind of promises they were just on line a jive
I´m cutting out, babe. Lord I´m going back up the line
if I stay another day you are going to
make me loose my mind

Train is at the station and I´m all packed to go
there ain´t no use to worry ´cos I won´t be back no more
I´m cutting out, babe. Lord I´m going back up the line
if I stay another day you are going to
Lord, make me loose my mind
Track Name: First I look at the purse
Some fellas look at the eyes
some fellas look at the nose
some fellas look at the size
and some fellas look at the clothes

I don´t care if the eyes are grey
I don´t care if the nose is long
I don´t care if she is under fed
I don´t care if the clothes are wrong
First I look at the purse

Some fellas look at the smile they wear
Some fellas look at the nails, that´s all !!
Some fellas look at the style of the hair
Some fellas look the waist to be small

I don´t care if the teeth are big
I don´t care if the nails are big
I don´t care if her hair is a wig
why waste time looking at the waist line ?
First I look at the purse

A woman can be as fine as can be
with kisses sweet as honey
but they don´t mean a thing to me
if she ain´t got no money
because the first sight
that where is at !!

Some fellas look at the way they walk,
the way they swing and sway
Some fellas look at the way they talk
and the silly little things they say

I don´t care if she waddles like a duck
I´m trying to wishper please
I´m still break, I am on the run
for the dollar bills I craze
First I look at the purse
Track Name: Waiting at the station
I’ve been waiting at the station all night long
Up all night in the freezin’, freezin’ cold

I have seen too many trains pass
and I dunno wich one is in my class

Time to leave and the motors roar
even if you don’t get on, now it will go
never gonna be another like this one
you gonna get it on

Water that flows never is the same
always changing and a moving
watch them slide through your hands
tryin’ to freeze movin’ sands

Don´t you worry ‘bout the luggage anymore
cos’ you ain´t got none to hold, no home to go

Don’t think it no more, make up your mind, and get a hold
cos’ if you don´t do it now, you’ll never do it at all

Time to leave and the motors roar
even if you don’t get on, now it will go
never gonna be another like this one
you gonna get it on

Water that flows never is the same
always changing and a moving
watch them slide through your hands
tryin’ to freeze movin’ sands
Track Name: Junior's first harp
Went to that pawnshop
they had a harp priced at two bucks
I had to have it, I get a job on a soda truck
playing hooky from school
I worked all week on the soda truck
because I had to have it
I had to have that harp

Saturday morning, the man gave buck and a half
¡¡one dollar fifty!! for a whole week of hard work
that´s a pretty shame
“It´s two dollars, boy” said the man in the shop
I laid my dollar fifty, took the harp and run
because I had to have it
I had to have that harp

I ran like the Devil but they caught me up
then came my trial and the judge asked me
“¿Why did you do it, boy?”
I said “please have mercy, I had to have that harp”

Then he asked me to play and so I did
and when he heard me then he understood
and gave the man the fifty cents that I owed
he shouted “¡¡Case dismissed!! and then he let me go
Track Name: Coming home
I’m coming home
I’m coming home with you
I’m coming home
I’m coming home with you

I don’t really care
if I’m coming or going
what really matters is
that we carry on still together
Been away a long time
I couldn’t get to say how long
lot of experiences in my mind
I took the best of them all
and I really feel the need
to tell the world about it

I’m coming home
I’m coming home with you
I’m coming home
I’m coming home with you

I’m sitting here alone
all by myself on this train
I don’t really care if I get there
or have to start all over again
are the wheels rolling or is this world spinning?

Don’t really mind
as long you are close to me
Don’t really mind
as long you are close to me
Track Name: Damn Sham
I’ve been thinking for a long time, you know
something that everybody has to know
I´m talking about the typical natural man
always willing to drink
to drink the whole damn sham
that soaks up the lies the media declares
Look at empty TV, just sit down and stare
believes he is really so well informed
Other worlds exist under different forms

Not seeing realities further than the tip of his nose
only narrow thoughts stuck on what he knows

Not to try to amplify your views of life
Ours is just, just to do and die
So much left to do that wasting time is a crime
believing in what they say ‘cause millions do the same
Never put in doubt the great masquerade
All their tricks are out there on parade
The same picture see where it hits you
Do you believe you would?

Not seeing realities further than the tip of his nose
Only narrow thoughts stuck on what he knows
Track Name: Ain´t there something that money can´t buy
M-O-N-E-Y
M-O-N-E-Y
money can change from hand to hand
and it can change from land
walk on, walk on, telling me why
ain´t there something that money can´t buy
money, MONEY!!
money, MONEY!!

Money can buy you silk and silver
or sweet liquor paid and flavoured
love is there, all willing and able
long as it catches some of the thing
walk on, walk on, telling me why
ain´t there something that money can´t buy
money, MONEY!!
money, MONEY!!
Track Name: Move your body
Move your body, move your bones
move your body, shake your soul
feel this rhythm, dig the beat
can’t stop movin’ your feet
Everybody knows you dance like a chicken

Get the feeling, you got the key
play around this melody
clap your hands, stomp your feet
keep on moving and feel free
Everybody says that you got Soul

Moving on up
Yeah, give it everything you got
I try to tell you something that could change your rules, come on feel the experience of this infectious groove

Free your brain, relax your mind
give it all you got inside
Rock the music, enjoy the swing
try until you spread your wings
then you’ll see the world in a different way
Track Name: Black Cat
I was having one of those dreams and I was feeling pretty bad
I broke a dozen mirrors with each hand I ever had
a shower of plastic tulips kept falling off the moon
I had to send a man to find the floorboards of my room
Black cat. Keep that black cat away from here
Black cat. Keep that black cat away

Someone broke a window and I squeezed trough the crack
I had to ask a blind man to show me the way back
but when he’d gone I bit my lip and try hard not to scream
I had to face that black cat with his evil eyed dream
Black cat. Keep that black cat away from here
Black cat. Keep that black cat outta here

Well he chased me through November cat figure all the time
when I felt his fur upon me I thought I blow my mind
I know there’s something black going on inside my head
when I woke up, there he was, lying on my bed
Black cat. Keep that black cat away from here
Black cat. Keep him away
Track Name: Vinyl junkie
A vinyl Junkie, that's what I am
Keep on searching what I cant afford
When I found them I can't control myself
Compulsive collector, l just can't stop
I ain't saying nothing about those CD’s
Talking about vinyl, real records very sought
I wouldn’t loose, just one chance to buy some more
Somebody’s saying they'll disappear but we're storing quite a lot
Ain't got enough money, (cos) I want to buy them all
And don't even have the time to hear the records that I've bought
But I don't mind, no
Look my collection
We know it's worth, yeah and you know it's true
Track Name: City Lights
I can see the city lights reaching everywhere
Leaving thousands of souls on sight

I can see the city lights abd its reflection
blinding even those who hide

You got to believe me baby, that when the lights blind you
only into the darkness can open your eyes again

I can see the city lights, feel its heat
how it burns on all sides

You'd rather go blind than to see something
that would have never liked to find

You got to believe me baby, that when the lights blind you
only into the darkness can open your eyes again
Track Name: Time
More time, that's what I need
More time, I want it yes indeed
My time never ain't enough
No time, and that's quite rough
The time, slips away
The time, ain't no way to retain
More time, it's what I want
More time, that's what I need right now

Can spend your whole life earning money as a blinding
Not being able to enjoy it 'cos you got no time
When you became old you cannot buy more time
And then you'll realize you have wasted your shine

Live your life, enjoy your time
before it's too late and you can't turn it back

It's neither 40 day months nor 20 months a year
But to make up your mind and organize your life

So many people to know and things to see
And I got no time
Many movies to watch and books to read
Never got the time
So much love to make and feelings to feel
And I got no time
so many roads to ride and records to hear
Never got the time

Have to work, got to sleep
But when do I have the time to live
Your life is happening besides the plans you are making
