One Out & One Back

Written By: Steve Innis

I start out slow,
No need to attack
I go with the flow,
I don't run with the pack
'Cause I'm a stayer,
One out and one back

You put your money on your man,
'Cause he's so lean and light
I'm sure he does the best he can,
And I don't mean to start a fight
But get a stayer,
If you want to do it right
Nothin' like a stayer,
To keep you warm all night

When you're done fishing
And you realize what you're missing,
Call on me
You won't need to worry
I ain't never in a hurry,
Can't you see ?

Everywhere I go,
Women want me back
They ask me how I know,
About the loving that they lack
I just tell the little darlings,
I know my way around the track
'Cause I'm a stayer,
One out and one back

Houseworkin' Man

Written By: Steve Innis

My baby really loves me,
You know the reason why
I love to do the housework,
Hang the washing all out to dry
She works in the city,
Doing big shot business deals
In my apron I look pretty,
Cooking all the meals
You know that we're so happy,
You gotta understand
She's my big business baby,
I am her houseworkin' man

She gets up early in the morning,
So I can make the bed
Then I do the laundry,
Just to ease my achin' head
When I'm all alone,
I like to hoover everywhere
And use my featherduster,
In my underwear
You know that we're so happy,
Just like Jane and Tarzan
She's my big business baby,
I am her houseworkin' man

When I iron my baby's clothes,
It makes me feel so good
I get a tingling in my toes,
Shopping in the neighbourhood
I love to clean the windows,
Sweep the leaves from the path,
And when my baby gets dirty....
I get to clean the bath
You know that we're so happy,
Tighter than Steely Dan
She's my big business baby,
I am her houseworkin' man

Cold Rain

Written By: Steve Innis

There's a black dog prowling,
I'm stumbling around
Yellow moon howling,
Up in neon town
There's a cold rain,
Trying to wash my mind away
I'm walking,
A lonely highway

Searching every pocket,
But can't find a trace
Picture in a locket,
Somebody's face
And a cold rain,
Trying to wash my mind away
I'm walking,
A lonely highway

Darker shades of grey,
Colour this place
I've got to break away,
Boarded up waste of space
And a cold rain,
Trying to wash my mind away
I'm walking,
A lonely highway

Women

Written By: Steve Innis

I'm trying hard to keep,
All the women in my life
I can't get no sleep,
All these women in my life
You know my girlfriend told my sweetheart,
I spend too much time thinking about my wife

My first wife ran off with my best friend,
They don't even keep in touch
They never call by or telephone,
No letters, emails, christmas cards or such
Sometimes I get so down,
You know I miss that man so much

I...I don't know what to do about it
Seems like I...I just can't seem to do without it

I've got a brand new lover,
I'll never leave her, no fear
I don't want no other,
Since she whispered in my ear
She said her daddy owns a brewery,
And he needs me....needs me to try all the beer

I...I just can't seem to do without it,
And I...I don't think I'm gonna do anything, anything about it
