Biography

we love what we do - that's why we do it ...
it's our very own brand of unique rock n' roll ...
not too heavy, not too light - we think it's just right.
we know given the chance to appeal to a larger audience - we would do just that.

Lyrics

liquid mechanic

Written By: poke

nineteen seventy I got a bad perm
hid under the car till it grew out
come to realize no need to panic
just slicked it back with some liquid mechanic
srewdrivers drive me nuts
hey edgar hand me an allen wrench
blowin smoke - don’t panic
pour in some liquid mechanic
fell down on my face
lay bleedin in the gutter
some called it suicde - others murder
seen my death but I don’t panic
thats right I’m the liquid mechanic

rafters

Written By: poke

Crawlin’ thru the rafters with jasper
Checkin’ out the noise in the hall
Creepin’ thru tha alley with sally
Stadin’ in the shadows with paul

Climbin’ on the rooftops with rufus
Tryin’ to stay ahead of the law
Sneakin’ back down in the alley
Sallys’ only one I saw

strange thang

Written By: poke

Marguerite’s only five foot two
She’s got one eye that’s brown and the other ones blue
Ain’t a lot of things that Marguerite wouldn’t do
And if you wanna get strange she’s gonna be there too
She’s got a snake tattoo on her back
She’s got a bird that sings and a two legged cat
I seen alota stranger things than that
But I never get in trouble when I wear my lucky hat
Yeah yeah - strange thang
Yeah yeah – it’s never the same
Yeah yeah – strange thang
Yeah yeah yeah yeah strange thang
Bobbie-sue wasn’t half a man
But you’d never know the difference by the lines of her tan
She has long sexy legs and big strong hands
And she wants to get strange whenever she can
She works down town at the old mousetrap
She’ll get a fifty dollar bill for a dance in your lap
I’ve seen alota stranger things than that
But I never get in trouble when I wear my lucky hat
Yeah yeah - strange thang
Yeah yeah – it’s never the same
Yeah yeah – strange thang
Yeah yeah yeah yeah strange thang
Everybody wants to get a little get a little strange
Hey hey hey what’s your name
I want to get some strange

ain't seen maybelle

Written By: poke

ain’t seen maybelle - since late last night
when i saw carlos - hes in a fight
busted his knuckles - poundin the door
and i ain’t seen maybelle - since the night before
ain’t seen maybelle - since wednesday last
when i saw carlos - hes breaking glass
blood on the window - blood on the floor
and i ain’t seen maybelle - since the week before
maybelle - where you gone
it’s been too long - since you been gone
when you see maybelle - tell her for me
when i saw carlos - hes on his knees
beggin for mercy - pleadin the lord
but i aint seen maybelle - since the night before

sorry i lost it

Written By: poke

i didnt really know him
didnt know him weel at all
some say he was a little mental
then I got that phone call
they said
sorry he lost it
sorry he lost it baby
so sorry he lost it
sorry he lost it
I aint talkin bout my luggage
or my last girlfriend
I aint talkin bout my cherry
its somthing you just wouldnt understand
sorry I lost it
sorry I lost it baby
so sorry I lost it
sorry I lost it
it aint all good
it aint all good at all
but when its all gone
there aint nothin left at all
sorry I lost it
sorry I lost it baby
so sorry I lost it
sorry I lost it
