Track Name: There Goes the Neighborhood
Oh there it goes, there goes the neighborhood
Let's watch it fly, there goes the neighborhood
Watch it fly by in the blink of an eye
'till nothing's left but the birds in the sky

Oh, there it goes, there goes the neighborhood

Oh there it goes, there goes the neighborhood
Go tip your cap, there goes the neighborhood
Let's give a cheer boy, ya need not ask why
Now move along 'cause the folks are in line

Oh there it goes, there goes the neighborhood

(solo)

Build it up big
Do it up right
'Cause what else is there to do on a Saturday night

Oh there it goes, there goes the neighborhood

Oh there it goes, there goes the neighborhood
Let's watch it burn, there goes the neighborhood
Son pass the torch, ya need not ask why
Pack up your cares leave your troubles behind

Oh there it goes, there goes the neighborhood
Alright, bye bye now

Oh there it goes, there goes the neighborhood

Oh there they go all the people in the neighborhood
Track Name: Heroin Jazz / Katie Holmes
You've got the world before you
You take just what you can
You were born with a silver spoon in your mouth
and a hundred dollar bill in your hand

The remnants of your father
It twinkles in your eyes
You push all your troubles way down low
and away from the world you hide

He takes you to the opera
He takes you by the hand
And he'll never know what you really want
But he'll do just what he can

He'll never know what hit him
It'll take him by surprise
And you'll run and you'll run and you'll run and you'll run

While the tears
Pour down
your eyes

La da da da da da da, la da da da da da, la da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da

Say hello, i'm your narcoleptic soul ....
Track Name: Tip Toe
Tip toe, tip toe
tip toe down the hall
Momma's gonna catch you, catch you if ya fall

(Repeat incessantly)

Momma loves you best of all
Track Name: Rollins Ave
Hey boy why up so soon?
Nothin' doin' till the afternoon

Oh sir pay me no mind
don't waste your precious time on me

Walkin' slowly on down Rollins avenue
Now what to do, your world it crashes down on you

Now it seems your world, is gonna take you for a twirl
and it's too late to run
away

Don't shake your fist at me
all's not what it seems to be

I need no sympathy
leave me to my sins you'll see

Walkin' slowly on down Rollins avenue
Now what to do, your world it crashes down on you

If everywhere ya go ya walk and stare down at your toes
well ya best start movin' your feet
and get along

(solo)

Mirror tell me what you see, I'm the wolf in you and you're
the man in me

Save me, save me

Rest assured you'll live the same
a lonely pawn
in life's game

Save me, save me!

And everything you'll find
is just a lesson learned in time
and if you don't know by now
you'll live alone
Track Name: Our House / Charlie's Song
Close the door behind you when you leave Our House
Our House
Take all your troubles and put 'em in a little pile at Your House
Your House
Go ahead and tell all the world bout Our House
Our House
Then start new with a buncha folks like you at Your house
Your House

Grab your coat, I think its gonna be a chilly one at your house
Your House
And we'll smile away cause everything will be okay at Our House
Our House

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'd take your picture and you'd do the same
Oh and I'd take you anywhere as long as you came
And when I get old and my lights turn down low
I'd be sure to let ya know

So imma take this one way ticket
non stop to Baltimore

Take your time take your precious little time
Take all you want babe, but don't go wastin' mine
I ain't no fool for you
I ain't no fool for you
No I ain't no fool,

no fool for you
no fool for you
no fool for you

We'd build a home on the 'ol countryside
where the weather is better long as you're by my side
Where livin' is easy as easy as pie
'Gal we wouldn't even have to try

So imma take this one way ticket
non-stop to Baltimore

I've got your lovin' in a brown paper bag
I take a sip 'gal then I don't feel so sad

I ain't no fool for you
I ain't no fool for you
No I ain't no fool,

no fool for you
no fool for you
no fool for you

We'd take a stroll down to Wenceles square
Where the streetlights they shimmer even when noones there
Oh I'd be your soldier and you'd be my dame
Pardon I didn't catch your name

So imma take this one way ticket
And there ain't no stoppin'
Till I hit Baltimore
Track Name: Ain't Misbehavin'
No one to talk with, all by myself
No one to walk with, I'm happy on the shelf

Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you

I know for certain the one I love
I'm through with flirtin', you that I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin, Oh savin' my love for you

Like Jack Horner in a corner
Don't go nowhere and I don't care
Oh your kisses worth waitin' for

I don't stay out late, don't care to go
I'm home about eight, me and my radio

Ain't misbehavin' savin' all my love for you
Track Name: Dreamer's Disease
So i went to the doctor to see just what's wrong
I said, "I got this aching head man, and I sleep way too long"
"Well are ya runnin' a fever, can ya finish your meals?"
and I said, "No doc, set me straight and tell me the deal!"

"Well listen now son, you've got the dreamers disease,
it'll make you sick sweat and shake, make ya weak in the knees
It'll turn your outsides in, and your insides out
Not to mention you'll develop a bad case of the gout"

"Well please, good sir, help me ease my mind
Are there some pills I can take, or someone's shoes I can shine?"
"Well easy now, son, you'll have to wait in line
The corner store opens tomorrow at 'bout a quarter to nine."

Help me lord if ya please
I got the dreamer's, I got the dreamer's disease

Well I ran outta there just as fast I could
I was feelin' mad at the world, a bit misunderstood
So I screamed to the heavens shouting, "Give me a sign!"
But instead of waiting for an answer I grabbed a bottle of wine

I drank until I saw the gates of Sodom
In hopes that I'd find the answer at the bottles' bottom
But nothin' at all changed inside of me
and I knew I was due for another reverie

Help me lord if ya please
I got the dreamers, I got the dreamers disease

The next mornin' when I awoke from up outta my dream
About a ten foot tall man and his killin' machine
He grabbed me by my shirt and put a gun to my head
and said,
"If you eat those pills son, you'd be better off dead"

Well I didn't care I ran down to the corner store
The pharmacists said, "Here's ten pills," and I said
"Gimme some more!"
I swallowed them all and in the blink of an eye
I was just like every other ordinary guy

Help me lord if ya please
I got the dreamers, I got the dreamers disease

First my beard, disappeared
Then I stopped singin' songs
And all my crazy little thoughts
went back where they belong

Then the next mornin' I found myself driving a silver sedan
and everything seemed to be going just according to plan

I'm on my bended knees
Help me lord if ya please
I got the dreamers
I got the dreamers disease
