Lyrics

Unfaithful Bird

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

You caged me up
You kept me long
You told me there was nothing wrong
You're a miserable
You're an unfaithful bird

I know I'm not the most charming bird
But there's a line and then it hurts
You're a miserable
You're an unfaithful bird

And it's the way that you left me here
Alone and all by myself
But now I know that I can do better
Baby now I know I can find somebody else

And you're free and it hurts
Look at you you're flying high
But we all get what we deserve
And even though you're flying high
You will tumble to the earth
You're an unfaithful bird

So fly away my little girl
Find yourself a different song
Find yourself another world
Cause you're a miserable
You're an unfaithful bird

Yes I know i'm not the most charming bird
But there's a line and then it hurts
You're a miserable
You're an unfaithful bird

And it's the way that you left me here
Alone and all by myself
But now I know that I can do better
Baby now I know I can find somebody else

And you're free and it hurts
Look at you you're flying high
But we all get what we deserve
And even though you're flying high
You will tumble to the earth
You're an unfaithful bird

And baby its the way that you broke my heart
And you're free and it hurts
Look at you you're flying high
But we all get what we deserve
And even though you're flying high
You will tumble to the earth
You're an unfaithful bird
You're an unfaithful bird

Melanie

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

It's been a year dear
Since you left me here
Alone with a broken heart
But I met a new girl
She's as charming as you were
But she loves us for what we are
Yes for what we are

Melanie!
She sleeps in the yard
On the floor or the rug
She's such a good love
She's such a good love

Melanie!
She plays in the park
She comes home before dark
She's such a good love
She's such a good love

She was so lonely
She was always roaming
Through cities, mountains, and yards
She was looking for someone
That she could depend on
When I found her beneath the old railroad car

And now Melanie!
She sleeps in the yard
On the floor or the rug
She's such a good love
She's such a good love

Melanie!
She plays in the park
She comes home before dark
She's such a good love
She's such a good love

Yeah baby with a
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow
Yeah baby with a
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow

You know that people always claim that they're nice
They claim that they're the love of your life
But she don't have no bark and no bite
And she never will

Melanie!
She sleeps in the yard
On the floor or the rug
She's such a good love
She's such a good love

Melanie!
She plays in the park
She comes home before dark
She's such a good love
She's such a good love

And baby with a
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow

Yeah baby with a
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow

Yeah baby give me a
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow
Yeah baby with a
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow

Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow
Oooo wow wow wow wow

Blue Lipstick

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

Before I acquired fame and wealth
I found it real hard to define myself
I was just the same
I was like everybody else

So I wore high boots
And I painted my face
I got tattoos and I changed my name
I wrote a massive hit
A song that everybody sang
Yeah they sang

It was called Blue Lipstick
And it took me far
Yeah I became a superstar
So I sang
And I sang

Yeah people think I'm really strange
And the way I dress they say insane
But it's just an act
I'm really not that way

But every night when I go onstage
I wear high boots and I paint my face
Cause that's the man they want
They want the man who sang
Yeah who sang

Blue Lipstick
Blue Lipstick
Yeah It took me far
I became a superstar
So I sang
Yeah I sang
Blue Lipstick
Blue Lipstick
And them kids went wild
And for miles and miles
People wore blue lip shade

I never thought that I could have so many people just standing here
Singing so loud and clear
When I sang
Yeah I sang

So I wore high boots and I painted my face
I got tattoos and I changed my name
I wrote a massive hit
A song that everybody sang
Yeah they sang

It was called Blue Lipstick
Blue Lipstick
And it took me far
I became a superstar
So I Sang
And I Sang
Blue Lipstick
Blue Lipstick
And them kids went wild
And for miles and mile
People wore blue lip shade

Strawberry Wine

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

Baby tonight
I got the strangest feeling
I drank a bottle of wine
And it set my heart ah reelin'
And I don't know why
But tonight
You look so pretty
But you're not my type
Oh my god
I know
That I must of been drinking

Strawberry Wine
Makes the plain look pretty
Strawberry Wine
Makes the boring witty

You tell a joke
I pretend to laugh and smile
If you want me to stay
Then baby
You got to make it worth my while
So lets make a toast
I believe, this is the worst night of my life
But with a drink in my hand
Maybe baby
I'll feel better in awhile

And Strawberry Wine
It gives me a floating feeling
Strawberry Wine
Sets my heart ah reelin'
And Strawberry Wine
Makes you look so pretty
Strawberry Wine
I just want
I just want you to kiss me.

Under its spell I see another you
You're so charming
After a drink or two
I feel intoxicated
I feel on top of the world
And baby!

Strawberry Wine
Gives me a floating feeling
And Strawberry Wine
Sets my heart ah reelin'
And Strawberry Wine
Makes the plain look pretty
And with Strawberry Wine
I just want
I just want you to kiss me

Here I Come

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

It's been awhile
Since we were making love
Yes since we've had some fun
It's been awhile
You're what I'm thinking of
So darling
Here I Come

Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)

It's been awhile
Since I have held you close
In the heat of the night
It's been awhile
I want to hear you moan
I want to run you wild

C'mon and shake
Shake my little baby
C'mon and shake it all night long
I want to kiss your lips
Just a little bit
Till you're shouting
Here I Come

Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)

You know I've never felt like this before
Give me some
I want more
I love it when you run me wild
You're perfect in every way
I love it just to hear you say
Treat me like a girl and not a child

Look alive
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)
Here I Come (Here it comes)

Memento

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

A picture from the day we met
A letter where I confessed
I love you so
Memento

A flower from your party dress
An empty pack of cigarettes
A letter you wrote
Memento

No diamond rings
No fancy things
Can keep us together
Cause it's the small things that matter
A simple I.....
Well I love you

Think of all the love we get
From little things like old cassettes
That play the songs we know
Memento
Memento

No diamond rings
No fancy things
Can keep us together
Cause it's the small that matter
A simple I.....
Well I love you

And I said no
No diamond ring
No fancy thing
Could ever let you go
And I said no
No diamond ring
No fancy thing
Could ever let you go

Cheap Queen

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

She's the current heir
She's the queen of England
With her British ways
And her sweet sweet beginning
She was born with a golden spoon
But she wanted silver
Cause none of the jewels in her daddy's court
They never thrilled her

You see lady was a cheap
Cheap Cheap Queen
And you know
Sometimes it seemed

I was a Jester in her broke down castle
I was a fool in her broke down castle

And Prince Charming wasn't available
So she took my ugly face
She dressed me up in drag
Then invited me over to her place
And when I did arrive
You know I saw the gutter queen
With her tinfoil crown
And her tattered blue jeans

You see lady was a cheap
A Cheap Cheap Queen
And you know sometimes it just seemed

I was a Jester in her broke down castle
I was a fool in her broke down castle
I was a Jester in her broke down castle
I was a fool in her broke down castle

She's the current heir
She's the queen of England
With her British way
And her sweet sweet beginning
She was born with a golden spoon
But she wanted silver
Cause none of the jewels in her daddy's court
They never thrilled her

You see lady was a cheap
Cheap Cheap Queen
And you know sometimes
It just seemed

I was a Jester in her broke down castle
I was a fool in her broke down castle
I was a Jester in her broke down castle
I was a fool in her broke down castle

You see lady was a
Cheap Queen

Matchmaker

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

Everyday I ask the MATCHER
Whatcha got in store for me tonight?
Will you find me a lady?
I don't care what she looks like
I don't care if she's real ugly
Or if she's missing her arms and legs
Or if her eyeballs are protruding
Or if the coroner pronounces her as dead
As long as she's got a head

Oh Yeahhhhh
Alriggggght
Uh huhhhhh
I'll take her

MATCHMAKER
I'll take her
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her
I don't care what she looks like.

So give me a horse with lipstick
Or a frog that I can kiss
Or a 20 year old hound dog
Yeah I don't care if she's a bitch
Or give me the general's daughter
She's addicted to every drug
Or how about old Mrs. Connor
Is that where I'll find love?

Oh yeahhhhhh
Alrightttttt
Uh huhhhhh
I'll take her

MATCHMAKER
I'll take her
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her

And you may say
That I'm a little desperate
And I'm pathetic
That's for sure
But we all crave a companion
But baby
I'm just not as picky as you are.

I'll take her
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her and ooo
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her
And baby ooo
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her
MATCHMAKER
I'll take her

Wake Up Bertha

Written By: Evan Uhlmann

Before I met you
There was a war outside
And darling in my backyard
There were some kings on fire
But this morning
When you were sleeping
They all came back home
The soldiers
The cannons
And them horses that you rode

Wake up Bertha
I know that you're sleeping
But I swear this time
I ain't dreaming

They shot holes through my window
Yeah right from my yard
You know I call it destruction
She calls it modern art
But this morning
When you were sleeping
They all came back home
The king and his army
And them horses that you rode

Wake up Bertha
I know that you're sleeping
But I swear this time
I ain't dreaming
Wake up Bertha
I could be out of my mind
But I swear this time
I aint dreaming

To tell you the truth
You're the one I want yes
Yes you're
To tell you the truth
You're the one I want
Forevermore

Wake Up Bertha
I know that you're sleeping
But I swear this time
I ain't dreaming
Wake up Bertha
I know that you're sleeping
But I swear this time
I ain't dreaming
