Track Name: Amazing Dope Tales
Dope
Everything is coming out the capsules
Dope
Everyone is made by the bagful
Every time I seem to reach the top I’m coming down
But then again without you I would never leave
the ground

Gonna tell us how you got those stripes, baby?
Every time I turn around I hear another story
About a lonely pop star who appeared in all his glory

Ah
Half a dozen rainbows growing out of his brain
Well, he handed me some sunshine and he showed me the moon
Well you may have thought it’s midnight but it’s
High noon, high noon

Shoot it baby shoot it baby shoot it baby shoot

Do it up do it up do it up do it
Shoot it up shoot it baby shoot it baby shoot it baby
Do it up do it up do it up do it
Get off get off get off get off

Track Name: As The River Flows
Oh woe
Ay ya ya ya
As the river flows
So must you and I
Track Name: City Freak
My old lady is a city freak
You would laugh at the colors of her hair
And when she walks
It’s only a couple of blocks
And if it’s further she’ll pay a fare
My old lady

My old lady is a city freak
She has gold where her fingers used to be
And she guards her life with a jewel encrusted
rubber knife
And goes to market at goodwill industries
My old lady

Ooh
Listen to the sound of the city
All she does is hear
Pretty little woman
Baby if she calls
She’s found it now
Or she’s heard it all

Sure, she’s heard it all
She’s heard it all
I don’t know

My old lady is a city freak
My old lady
My, my, my
My, my, my.
