Lyrics

Red Vest

Written By: Jeff, Tom Dunham & Zella Lavender

Hanging on a moment
I'm looking for a rise
Combing all the back streets
The place where I rely
Can't get this at Wal-Mart
Can't buy it on the net
If you want to park
Hollywood Sunset
Got to pay the vest
The man in the vest
He'll park your car
So you won't walk far
Now I'm on a sidewalk
In a distant stare
Look at all those people
They're trying to get in there
Can't get there by looks
Can't get there by style
Only way to get in
Pay that turn style
And the vest
He'll park your car
So you won't walk far
On the boulevard
Hanging on a moment
Looking for a rise
Combed all those back streets
I had no luck tonight
I gotta give in
Give up my car
Here's the keys
Where's the bar
And the vest
He parked your car
On the boulevard
So we won't walk
Far, Far, Far

All-E-All

Written By: Jeff, Tom Dunham & Zella Lavender

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
Ready or not here I come
You want to go
So is to run and hide
Far away from the city lights
Everybody count to ten
Then you look for life
Well it's just a game
Now it's out of site
Out of site
Out of site
Out of site
All E All
Say all come free
Well All E All
Well all come free
Be with me
What you see
Set it free
You think the grass is greener
Baby on the other side
A shallow grave
Where you like to hide
You count to ten
And you look for life
Say it's just a game
Now it's out of site
Out of site
Out of site
Out of site
All E All
Say all come free
Well All E All
Say all come free
Be with me
What you see
Set it free
All E All
Say all come free
Well All E All
Say all come free
Be with me
What you see
Set it free
Well All E All
Say all come free
All E All
Say all come free
Be with me
What you see
Set it free

Shout

Written By: Jeff, Tom Dunham & Zella Lavender

Well you got a lot of traffic in the big city lights
Slow down boring in a small town life
Well you want to cut loose get away
Take my advice there's no better way
And they drive you down
Make you want to drink
With the loser's and clowns
An the dirty rat finks
Straight on down bottom below
It's no big secret if you really must know
Add a little sparkle most in demand
You gotta have a cold one right in your hand
Cause they will drive you down
Make you want to drink
With the loser's and clowns
And the guitars scream
Stand up ---------- Shout
It is what it is another one's down
Stand up ---------- Shout
Your in your out buy another round
Stand up ---------- Shout
They'll drive you down
Drive you down
Stand up ---------- Shout
When the guitars ring
Everybody screams
Well they drive you down
Make you want to drink
With the loser's and clowns
And the guitars scream
Stand up ---------- Shout
It is what it is another one's down
Stand up ---------- Shout
Your in your out buy another round
Stand up ---------- Shout
They'll drive you down
Drive you down
Stand up ---------- Shout
When the guitars ring
Everybody screams
Stand up ---------- Shout
Stand up ---------- Shout
Stand up ---------- Shout

Black & Blue

Written By: Jeff, Tom Dunham & Zella Lavender

The black and the blue - Cover up
The bad that you do - Shakem up
The smell of the booze - Drink it up
It's what we all do - Give it up
Cover up
Shame
No one wants to take the blame
Finger shaken that's the game
Shame
The bad that you do
The smell of the booze
You cover it up
The black and the blue
Said it was true - Fess it up
He's coming for you - Give it up
Your shiny bad mood - Light em up
Your breaking the news - Cover up
Cover up
Shame
No one wants to take the blame
Finger breaking that's the game
Shame
The bad that you do
Their coming for you
You cover it up
Shame
No one wants to take the blame
Finger shaken, taking names
Shame
Out for your head
Down with your due's
Cover it up
Shame
No one wants to take the blame
Finger shaken no one gains
Shame
The bad that you do
Their beating on you
You cover it up
The black and the blue
The black and the blue
The black and the blue
The black and the blue
It's what we do

Strange Things

Written By: Jeff, Tom Dunham & Zella Lavender

Do you want to walk this way
Come on and follow me
I'll show you some strange ways
Strange Thing
Strange Thing
My girls workin 9 to 5
Then she plays in the smoke
By the time she was half alive
She thought life is no joke
Strange Thing as law on the first case
You still following me
Step on a crack break your mother's back
What could happen could be a heart attack
Strange Thing
Like love when it bites
Strange Thing
There is superstition
I said Strange Thing
Under a ladder can be a bad thing
I take a chance and go against what they say
Don't let a black cat cross your way
Step on the grass, chase the trespass
Cross the line, it could be your last
Strange Thing
Break a mirror man your on your way
Strange Thing
There is superstition
I said Strange Thing
Under a ladder can be a bad thing
Strange Thing, Strange Thing
Accidents happen
Look up, skies the limit
If your gonna walk this way
You might as well step in it
Stick around the moments of your own life
Your not with love when she wants another life
Now tonight before they all are there
Turn to find that it's your own nightmare
Strange Thing
Under a ladder can be a bad thing
Strange Thing
There is superstition
I said Strange Thing
Under a ladder can be a bad thing
I take a chance go against what they say
Don't let the man in blue get in your way

Cruzin

Written By: Jeff, Tom Dunham & Zella Lavender

Well I'm cruzin down the freeway doing 95
This sports car feels like 55
Got me a paint job for free
Got me something man to cover my seats
Well if I’m gonna push that white line
I’m gonna push it to the limit, baby overdrive
This sports car feels like 55
Buda shaken, obilating, instigating, arbitrating
I’m having a real good time
Jump in the back in the sack
Oh baby, I’m coming back, yeah
Well I'm cruzin down the freeway doing 95
This sports car feels like 55
Got me a CHP on my ass
I think he knows I’ve been hauling ass
Well if I’m gonna push that white line
I’m gonna push to the limit, baby overdrive
This sports car feels like 55
Buda shaken, obilating, instigating, arbitrating
I’m having a real good time
Jump in the back, in the sack
Oh baby, I’m coming back yeah
In the sky, way up high
Helicopters are flying by
Keeping an eagles eye
On the left, on the right
I’ve got cars on every side
Road trip
Buda shaken, obilating, instigating, arbitrating
I’m having a real good time
Jump in the back, in the sack
Oh baby, I’m coming back yeah
In the sky way up high
Helicopters are flying by
Keeping an eagles eye
On the left, on the right
I’ve got cars on every side – Buckle up
