Smart/funny/hip-dumb lyrics a la Ramones and Iggy Pop (with some Tom Waits thrown in); music is drill-tight bass & drums with hammering rock/blues guitar and saxophone. Great live show -- Profane influenced by Iggy, Mick, Rollins, James Brown.

Lyrics

Jigglin'

Written By: Otis Profane

JIGGLIN¡¦

Standin¡¦ on the shore
The moon is on the rise
Waves kickin¡¦ in
Make me feel alive
Jigglin¡¦
When the night begin

Hold on girl
You know I¡¦m comin¡¦ home
Home to my head
Where I¡¦m never alone
Jigglin¡¦
When the night begin

Down the shore
Everything is all right
Beach fires burnin¡¦
Burnin¡¦ all night
Jigglin¡¦
When the night begin

When I grow up I never want to lose
Tumblin¡¦ in the garden
¡¥Neath the light of the moon
Jigglin¡¦
Let the rumpus begin

Down the shore
Everything is all right
Beach fires burnin¡¦
Burnin¡¦ all night
Jigglin¡¦
Let the rumpus begin

The light always dies at the end of the day
But when that moon rises it lights my way
Jigglin¡¦
Let the rumpus begin:

I want to live
On the edge of alive
Never gonna burn out
Never gonna die
Jigglin¡¦

Hold on girl
You know I¡¦m comin¡¦ home
Home to my head
Where I¡¦m never alone
Jigglin¡¦
When the rumpus begin

Ma, ma
Everything gonna be all right
Gonna ride this wave
The rest of my life

Jigglin¡¦
Let the night begin
Jigglin¡¦
It¡¦s castles in the air
Jigglin¡¦
It¡¦s castles in the sand
Jigglin¡¦
It¡¦s castles in the sand

The King The King

Written By: Otis Profane

(THE KING THE KING)

When they kick your door in in the morning
That¡¦s a pretty good sign they¡¦re coming in
Maybe I should not have screwed you over
And maybe you would not have turned me in

Flush the dope, drop the cocaine in the toilet
Tripping on the bottles pulling my pants on,
oh yeah
Was it you waving from the cop car, baby
Or was it me with the mushrooms kicking in?

ONE MORE NIGHT IS ALL I EVER WANTED
ONE MORE NIGHT FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN
LOOKOUT GIRL, THE POLICE ARE COMING
LOOKS LIKE I¡¦M SLEEPING WITH MY BUTT TO THE WALL AGAIN

Oh ho ho, ha ha ha I¡¦m in the craphouse
Flies buzzing round me like freshly laid excrement
The judge is mean waving his two-ton gavel
No mercy in his eyes as he¡¦s banging out
the 5 to 10

ONE MORE NIGHT IS ALL I EVER WANTED
ONE MORE NIGHT FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN
LOOKOUT GIRL, THE POLICE ARE COMING
LOOKS LIKE I¡¦M SLEEPING WITH MY BUTT TO THE WALL AGAIN

ONE MORE NIGHT IS ALL I EVER WANTED
ONE MORE NIGHT FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN
GOODBYE GIRL, THE POLICE ARE COMING
GOODBYE BABY, FIND YOURSELF ANOTHER FRIEND
