Track Name: Hey Alright Ok
I lost my job, lost my brain
Lost a girl down in Tennessee
I'm not quite half the man I used to be
I hid all my deficiencies as long as I could
And now you see the drunker side of me

Been spinnin' wheels for days on end
I thought I'd phone a friend
I found out he'd been dead going on 10 years

Well I threw away my phone
Said he's lucky 'cause he's home
Where the women and the creditors can't win


Hey, alright, ok
Me and friends are gonna drink the night away
Don't care about the mornin' cause tomorrow's not today


Well I don't mind my condition here
It's too bad that you do
You weren't the first to go and you sure won't be the last

I still got all my friends
It doesn't matter if they're dead
Gonna stack them high and fall right where I land

Hey, alright, ok
Me and friends are gonna drink the night away
Don't care about the mornin' 'cause tomorrow's not today
Track Name: Nowhere to Go
I'm so damned tired of always living in the hole
Everything is botherin' me i'm losing control
I lost my soul
Nowhere to go but down
She's long past gone
Nowhere to go But down

I'm too drunk to work
I'm too stoned to care
My phone keeps on ringing
As I'm sitting in my chair
This blows
That's how my story goes
Just being optimistic
Nowhere to go but down


I'll move to Arizona
Oh please don't ask me why
I'll lay down in that trailer park
Beneath the desert sky
Somehow I'll find some peace I know
I'll sip that cold sangria
Regrets are way back home
Track Name: Pound
I'll pound you steady through the box springs baby
It's all I do to keep from goin' crazy
Come on baby, show me where it's at

I had a notion we could drive to Vegas
You never know just where the night might take us
One problem--we'd need a car for that

There's more to life than just messin' around
But that's all we got to do in this run down town
I must say it's been time well spent with you, me,
Pounding through the box springs

Hot check for the rent now baby
Price we pay for being so damn lazy
Lie down, let's just ride this out

Police are knocking on our door now baby
What'd we do my memory's drunk and hazy
Let's do it one last time before we're down and out

There's more to life than just messin' around
But that's all we got to do in this run down town

I must say it's been time well spent with you, me
Pounding through the box springs
Track Name: Position
I need some harlot to pay
I can't stop feelin' this way
Since you left my fire still burns
This is the place that I've earned

I know the feeling is wrong
But i know i'm just not that strong
My position ain't good


There on the corner she stood
I did the best that I could
I won't be misunderstood
Mama did the best that she could

I ain't got a lot in this world
But I really do need that giirl
My position ain't good

My position ain't good
My position ain't good
My position ain't good
My position ain't good
My position aint' good
My position ain't good
My position ain't good
Track Name: Don't Ask Me How My Day Was
I got home early friday evening
I thought you'd already be home
You had no courtesy to call me
So I ate my dinner all alone


I can't say I'm naturally suspicious
But I got his address from a friend
And I drove on out for confirmation
Looked through the window in the den


So don't ask me how my day was
'cause woman you don't really care
And I'm not here to solve your problems
Tell em to that new flame over there


Well I can't say you were working
Unless you count that rockin in the chair
I wondered what we'd tell the children
But the picture made my mind up there


You can blame your sin on my detachment
That you were just evening the score
And you may claim your fling is over
But I'm not coming back for more.

So don't ask me how my day was
'Cause woman you don't really care
And i'm not here to solve your problems
Tell em to that new flame over there


Well I guess it's best i be goin'
I hope you see your day in hell
And you'd best not go for alimony
'cause i kept some pictures to myself
Track Name: Girl Don't Call Me Blues
I work my job all day
To buy her things 'cause i want her
She's got expensive taste more than I can pay
But I need her
It's been seven long days and the phone won't ring
And I lost her

Haven't you heard, I got the girl don't call
Haven't you heard, I got the girl don't call
Haven't you heard I got the girl don't call me blues


She won't return my calls
The letters I wrote go unanswered
So I drove on out, I rang the bell I heard some footsteps
It was her new boyfriend, He kicked my ass out into the traffic

Havent you heard....
Track Name: Early Morning Masturbation
It's been weeks since you left town
I got drunk I was feelin' down
But you can't stray far girl you're still in my mind

I must admit I didn't think you would go
One thing I think you should know
I'm lying on my back enjoying the show


Early morning masturbation, til the noonday sun
Drink my coffee smoke a lucky, my left hand gets it done
Breaking up is hard more ways than one
Breaking up is hard more ways than one
Early morning masturbation


Yes I got those letters you wrote
I threw 'em out and I lit up a smoke
I got myself an old friend I'm gettin' to know

Your mother tells me you want to come home
I'm getting used to being alone
Besides I got that picture-your nude on the wall


Early morning masturbation, til the noonday sun
Drink my coffee, smoke a lucky, my left hand gets it done
Breaking up is hard more ways than one
Breaking up is hard more ways than one
Early morning masturbation
Track Name: You Got The Right To Be Stupid
Late night movie in a restful state
shoulda known girl it wouldn't stay that way
steak knife flies it nearly hits my head
You said it was for things I never said
We better get out now girl before we wind up dead.


You got the right to be stupid
You got the right to lose your mind
But by now you'd think I'd realize
There's better ways to spend my time
Let me take you to the nuthouse
Where it's alright to make no sense
Dreadful nights and bitchy women
I won't go through that again

Late one night i was fast asleep
I looked up to see you standing over me
A shower curtain rod in your right hand
You said you were gonna shove it up my rear end
Well your ideas about sex are kinky or you're just plain mad.


You got the right to be stupid
You got the right to lose your mind
But by now you'd think I'd realize
There's better ways to spend my time
Let me take you to the nuthouse
Where it's alright to make no sense
Dreadful nights and bitchy women
I won't go through that again
