Lyrics

Mislead

Written By: Jeremy Brown/China Clippers

Don't try a lot of "No need to be scared" when you try to do something and you get nowhere. Mislead. To this hammer all's a nail.

Mikki Said Goodbye

Written By: Jeremy Brown/China Clippers

I'd be closing down when she came around. She is black and brown, and her eyes aren't round. She told me her name was Mikki. She said, "In a week from now I'm Palo Alto bound. What's a girl to do? And is your girl around?" Well I waited too long and now she's gone. I've been thinking how I could be Palo Alto bound. I'd walk around the business district hoping to be found by Mikki. She's gone now, but they told me Mikki said goodbye.

A Trick

Written By: Jeremy Brown/China Clippers

Have they ever put you on, then laughed in your face? I'll implore those forsworn to play it straight for me. Oh yeah, it's a trick you know. If you're going to take advantage of my good nature, at least keep it to yourself. Lord I love to go downtown to where the gentlemen go. Where you can't buy happiness, but the thing it's closest to. I'm a trick I know. But she danced on me so good that the man had to come and tell her "Easy now." It's my kind of lie though. If I can't have any of your real sugar, I'll take that sweet and low. Politicalese? No! I don't mind so much being played, but I sure hate to be teased

Best Leave Town

Written By: Jeremy Brown/China Clippers

I know your kind and I've seen it done. A million lies behind that smile. Let me buy you a drink, my friend. What's that over there? Revenge is a drink that is best served you. You won't taste the Acid, but you'll feel it though. You'll spend the night looking deep inside with no place to hide. Have a drink, pal. Drink it all down. You best leave town. 'Fore the sun goes down.
