Track Name: Rock It Back In Time
Baby, when I jump I wanna jump and jive,
Don't wanna jump and pump my fists tonight
Turn back the clock, gonna rock-it back in time

Well I wanna rock tonight, I wanna rock with you all night long
I wanna rock tonight, but there ain't no dancin' hall.
'Cause all the clubs in town don't play that rock and roll

I don't wanna listen to those new girls sing,
I wanna take you to a place we can jump and swing
Baby, when I jump I wanna jump and jive,
Don't wanna jump and pump my fists tonight
Turn back the clock, gonna rock-it back in time

I wanna real hot ride about fifty-five years old
I wanna give you a ride, take you where you wanna go
Where that air's so hot with that good old rock and roll

I don't wanna listen to those new girls sing,
I wanna take you to a place we can jump and swing
Baby, when I jump I wanna jump and jive,
Don't wanna jump and pump my fists tonight
Turn back the clock, gonna rock-it back in time
Track Name: Hey Hey Veronica
I met a girl who could jump and jive,
She made the whole floor come alive.
She said Veronica was her name,
She stole my heart and now she's runnin' away.

Hey hey Veronica,
Stay stay a little longer,
It's a Saturday and you ain't got nothin' to lose.
Hey hey Veronica,
Let me dance another song with ya
'Cause I'm burstin' at the seams with rhythm and blues

She's only here another minute or two,
But she's got me high on her dancin' moves.
The band is gonna play a real slow tune,
Veronica, baby, don't go so soon!

Hey hey Veronica,
Stay stay a little longer,
It's a Saturday and you ain't got nothin' to lose.
Hey hey Veronica,
Let me dance another song with ya
'Cause I'm burstin' at the seams with rhythm and blues
Track Name: Lemme' See You Growl
Lemme' see you growl, you've always been so sweet.
Lemme' see you growl, open up and bear those teeth,
Cut it out, pussy footin' around,
I've never seen you pull back your head and howl,
Lemme' see you growl, bare those teeth for me

They've been pushin' and shovin', walkin' all over you.
They've been pushin' and shovin', baby, 'cause you never get rude
Let 'em have it, give 'em sass,
'Cause everybody needs a kick in the ass,
Lemme' see you growl, bare those teeth on you

You oughta' run with the wolves or you won't be around for long,
You oughta' run with the wolves, oughta' learn to stand up strong.
I wanna see your wild side, 'cause nobody's afraid of a butterfly,
Lemme' see you growl, oughta' learn to stand up tall
Track Name: Couch Crasher Blues
Rise and shine boy, wake up
It's the early afternoon.
And careful where you put your footsteps
As you creep across the room.
There's strangers lying on the carpet
Between the empties and the stains,
And a can of Lucky in the ice box,
The only liquor that remains.

And you hang your head in your hands,
You're feelin' hot boy, you lost your cool,
That's how you groove to the couch crasher blues

Remember where you put your wallet
And your jacket with your keys,
And careful not to wake the big guy
Who's lying there atop your jeans
Where'd you put those Doc Martens?
You only bought them yesterday.
Someone walked away in them
And left their loafers in its place

Aches and pains and a
Pocket of change in your sweatshirt
But you're short for the bus to
The other side of the route
Like they say, you'll grow up when you're older
But you ain't gonna be just draggin' your feet
And groovin' to the couch crasher blues
Track Name: Same Old Shit
It's been a cold couple days since you've been here
Still feel my bones shiverin' just when you're near
We used to be as thick as thieves,
Now you got me knockin' at the knees
Since you sold me down the river, my dear

And it's the same old shit as before
It's the same old shit that keeps me anchored to the floor
Baby, I can't understand
Just why you'd come around again
I'll pack my bags, I'm gone this time for sure.
When I hit the road, I'm gone this time for sure.

It don't matter that you know you broke my heart
And I don't care about how sorry you are
As long as you just hang around,
The more you pull and pull me down
The same old shit it never strays too far

And it's the same old shit as before
It's the same old shit that keeps me anchored to the floor
Baby, I can't understand
Just why you'd come around again
I'll pack my bags, I'm gone this time for sure.
When I hit the road, I'm gone this time for sure.
Track Name: Loverboy Louie
Well I ain't never seen a man love a woman like that,
But Louie ain't even got a spine in his back,
When she pulls him by the hair he can't even tell
'Cause Louie's got a heart that's as big as a whale

They call him Loverboy Louie,
They call him Loverboy Louie,
The way he jumped right into it,
And he never even knew it.
Now Loverboy Louie ain't got a little lover no more

Well she dumped his ass right out on the curb,
But Louie's still mad in love with her.
Though she's sleepin' around with some other guys,
He still sends a rose for Saint Valentine's

Now if you see old Louie with another gal,
Be her a sweetie or a demon from hell,
You better make sure his head's on straight,
Or I'ma smack old Louie in his loverboy face
Track Name: Too Lonely A Man
Oh baby please, don't you cry,
'Cause I got more troubles than you do this time.
You come for my comfort, can't give it to you,
Hell, there ain't anything I can do.

You got no reason and you got no time
To be hangin' around with this kinda' guy
Baby I know you've been as sweet as you can,
But you don't even know who I am

I'm too lonely a man
Too lonely a man
Too lonely for a gal with plenty better things to do,
Too lonely a man for you

So if you please, just leave me this way,
I've been the loneliest lover to you anyway.
Maybe some day before I kick the can,
I'll be ready to love but 'til then
Track Name: Carolina
I got my black tie on,
You got your formal dress,
You're my girl tonight,
You can dress to impress

Carolina, yeah yeah yeah
Don't wanna find ya
With another guy ya
Don't leave me lonely tonight

Rockin and rollin in my blue suede shoes
There's a real hot rhythm for a dance with you
You're lookin real hot girl, you're all mine
And now you're lockin your lips with some other guy

I was counting the ways girl you turn me on
The way you shake and groove with those high heels on
When you're on my arm you know I feel so smooth
And now you're hangin off another and you played me like a fool

You can blame it on the liquor or blame it on the mood
But honey you don't even remember the name of that dude
My heart stopped dead now I'm high and dry
You took another man's heart and nearly made me cry
