You know it's a real, real sad feeling being played the fool
To find out after all this time, that you've been lied to
To find out after all this time, that she's got someone else, someone else on her mind
But that's okay baby
I never thought that I would see the day
Yeah, where I would be happy,
as a pig in shit, to see you up and walk out on me...

You know it's a real, real sad feeling knowing you've been used
To find out after all this time, you've been played the fool
To find out after all is said and done, that there ain't no such thing, no such thing as true love
But that's okay baby
I never thought that I would see the day
Yeah, where I would be happy,
as a pig in shit, to see you up and walk out on me...

You know it's a real, real sad feeling being played the fool
To find out after all this time, that you've been lied to
To find out after all this time, that she's got someone else, someone else on her mind
But that's okay baby
I never thought that I would see the day
Yeah, where I would be happy,
as a pig in shit, to see you up and walk out on me...

I have me a problem you can't understand
I don't have it in me to be your man
I don't have the strength to just let it pass
It slips through my fingers like sand through the glass
It slips through my fingers like sand through the glass

I'm watching your facebook every night
But you do not care if I live or die
Baby don't leave me don't say goodbye
Don't tell me you hate me tell me a lie

Well there's finally a time where I done realize
I carry this torch until the day that I die
Well there's finally a time where I done realize
I carry this torch until the day that I die

My friends have all warned me I'm not being wise
That things will not change, you're not by my side
Baby don't leave me don't say goodbye
Don't tell me you hate me tell me a lie

Well there's finally a time where I done realize
I carry this torch until the day that I die
Well there's finally a time where I done realize
I carry this torch until the day that I die

Does it still show I'm still aching for her
Too scared to try loving, afraid of being burned
I spend all my days try and mending the hurt
Does it still show I'm still aching for her

Well there's finally a time where I done realize
I carry this torch until the day that I die
Well there's finally a time where I done realize
I carry this torch until the day that I die

Oh Lord my baby, she done gone gave me the scabies and the rabies
Oh Lord my baby, she done gone gave me the scabies and the rabies
Well the doctor said "Son, You must have been crazy. You didn't put it on
'cause you were too damn lazy."

And I never ever dreamed that my baby would betray me, but she brought
home something deadly, and someday it's gonna slay me.

Oh Lord my baby, she done gone gave me the scabies and the rabies
Oh Lord my baby, she done gone gave me the scabies and the rabies
Well the doctor said "Son, You must have been crazy. You didn't put it on
'cause you were too damn lazy."

Yes sir it's true, I'm feeling mighty blue, you would cry too if it happened to you
Yes sir it's true, I'm feeling mighty blue...
You would cry too if it happened to you!

Oh Lord my baby, she done gone gave me the scabies and the rabies
Oh Lord my baby, she done gone gave me the scabies and the rabies

I say my baby done gave me the scabies and the rabies...

Song Title: BRUISES
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music, lyrics: Smith)


you're careless with everything you say, the shit you've done to me is so mean
just shut up, and go away, and give my bruises some time to heal

I have this wound and it won't go away, have you no idea how you've made me feel
just fuck off, and go away, and give my bruises some time to heal

I don't care if you're sorry, for everything that you've done, to someone
who's grown up knowing hate, but never knowing love

I don't care if you're sorry, for ever causing the pain you've been making me feel
just shut- up and go away, just shut- up and go away

just shut- up and go away and leave me here with my bruises

Song Title: DON'T TELL ME IT'S OVER
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music, lyrics: Smith)


well when we first met, you knew I wanted you, and I could tell
that you needed someone too
but I know you don't give a damn about spoken words
yeah, when are you coming home, don't tell me it's over

and your ma, she always said not to trust someone when he's smiling
not until you find out what he's been hiding

can't you decide, there's no need to hide from me
I know that things haven't been so good, you say you need to feel special
I thought that was understood

and your ma, she always said not to trust someone when he's smiling
not until you find out what he's been hiding

(music, lyrics: Smith)

To download this song (free), go to the music page.


I roam alone on this dried up road, the soldiers came they destroyed my home
I live the life of a refugee, won't somebody rescue me

come on let's take a ride, all these lonely hitchhiking faces
hitchhikers roam so many places, all these lonely hitchhiking faces
if you're a victim of degradation, the time has come for your liberation
the time has come to fight back against this, and rescue all these
hitchhiking faces

all along the road all the bodies lie bleeding
on the backs of the poor all the wealthy are feeding
still the slaughter continues all the people are dying
see all these soldiers riding mighty and high

come on let's take a ride, all these lonely hitchhiking faces
hitchhikers roam so many places, all these lonely hitchhiking faces
if you're a victim of degradation, the time has come for your liberation
the time has come to fight back against this, and rescue all these
hitchhiking faces

soldiers carry arms, we carry children
soldiers bear arms, we bear our children
of these hitchhiking faces many are little
soldiers bury landmines, we bury children

come on let's take a ride, all these lonely hitchhiking faces
hitchhikers roam so many places, all these lonely hitchhiking faces
if you're a victim of degradation, the time has come for your liberation
the time has come to fight back against this, and rescue all these
hitchhiking faces

Song Title: HOSTILE WORLD
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music, lyrics: Smith)


you panhandle in your business suits, knowing you can't lose
and you've come to make the offer that I can't refuse
you come across like just an empty shell
with nothing on your mind, and I can tell
that you've been shoveling it for awhile
living modern in your hostile world
all your neighbours in their bourgeois culture
living modern in your hostile world is like
dying amongst the vultures...

open up my mind and then I'll see the light
open up my mind and then I'll see the light
open up my mind and then I'll see the light
open up my mind and then I'll see the light

when they see what we've left behind and find out
what we were like... just a bunch of trendoid, plastic,
love making dolls
living modern in your hostile world
all your neighbors in their bourgeois culture
living modern in your hostile world is like
dying amongst the vultures

open up my mind and then I'll see the light
open up my mind and then I'll see the light
open up my mind and then I'll see the light
open up my mind and then I'll see the light

mama don't you cry, there is still much to live for
I'll make every sacrifice I need, but I'm not
coming home in pieces

open up my mind and then I'll see the light
open up my mind and then I'll see the light...

you panhandle in your business suits...

Song Title: PEACE OF MIND
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music, lyrics: Smith)


I knew when I told you that I had to go
you would say these things that would hurt me so
it wasn't 'cause my love was gone, but I
just need to find a place where I belong

didn't everything turn out alright, I'm no longer
with you but I don't mind
didn't everything turn out alright, I'm so glad to have
my peace of mind

I used to fear being all alone, I felt unloved and it hurt me so
but I don't get scared anymore, because I remember
what my life was like before, yeah

didn't everything turn out alright, I'm no longer
with you but I don't mind
didn't everything turn out alright, I'm so glad to have
my peace of mind

goodbye, there's no use trying, I'm through with
having you waste my time, yeah you left a mark
on my mind, when you cut apart my heart and
hung it out to dry

sometimes when I'm at home, I just want to be left alone
I'm not afraid to be on my own, because now I've
got a place that I can call my home...

Song Title: PROMISE
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music, lyrics: Smith)


if I promise you'll be the only one, will it be enough
to win your love, if I promise you'll bee the only one
if I promise you'll be the only one, will you say yes, or will you say no
if I promise you'll be the only one, will you be my only one

sometimes when you're all alone, so afraid to let your feelings show
that when you finally meet someone, and don't really care just who they are
if I promise you'll be the only one...

I know that you've been hurt before, I promise you those days are over
I know it's taken you so long, for you to finally meet someone
if I promise you'll be the only one...

if I promise you'll be the only one will you say yes or will you say no
if I promise you'll bee the only one, will you be my only one

will you be, will you be my, will you be my only one...

Song Title: STEAL THE SUN
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music: Smith/Kawata, lyrics: Smith)


coyote drags tail across the sun and gives fire to everyone
and the day will come when there will be none
you always want to buy the things that aren't for sale
that which you cannot buy, you can always steal
and the day will come when they steal the sun

and the day will come when they steal the sun
and the day will come when they steal the sun

I live in fear of what you have done
grandfather told me when I was young
that the day will come when they steal the sun
I hate to think of what we've become
we procreate and then eat our young
and I have to know what do I tell my son

and the day will come when they steal the sun
and the day will come when they steal the sun

the first nations know that the dog cannot run up through the sky
touch the sun with its tail and carry the fire back to earth
their folklore is only a metaphor... a message that was intended to warn
that nature was a precious gift... the use was meant for all
not to be abused by the few

it does not matter that the big businessman cannot walk up through the sky
pick up the sun, put it in his pocket, and carry it away...
if your actions deprive me of its use, it's still the same thing

refuse to compromise the right to stand your ground
you turn to face the sun, that's how your body burns
and the day will come, I can't see the sun

coyote calls me seagull... he says that is my name
but he does not address me with any false reverence, for he knows what I am
fascinated by my existence my spirit guide is wise for he knows that
like him, I too am a survivor

never feeling despair from my surroundings, I have chosen to be
thankful for what I have, knowing that the day will come

when all the poachers and thieves have died off
and only a few scavengers remain, it will be my turn to rise up,

taste the sun, be free to walk the earth,
and never be afraid

Song Title: TREAT YOU REAL BAD
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music, lyrics: Smith)


well I know that you're unhappy with the way I treat you baby
and I know that it's surprising if it should last another day
I know that I don't treat you real good, not even close
to how I should, I know that I treat you real bad
but if I don't treat you real bad, what else would we have

well I seem to have it in me to keep us both from being happy
and I know it sounds confusing, but that's just the way it has to be
I know that I don't treat you real good, not even close
to how I should, I know that I treat you real bad
but if I don't treat you real bad, what else would we have

I know that I don't treat you real good, I know
not even close to how I should

well you know I'm feeling sorry, oh for myself but don't you worry
about me being hurt and lonely, ever since you done left me
I know that I should have seen it coming, oh from at least a mile away

I know that I don't treat you real good, not even
close to how I should, I know that I treat you real bad
but if I don't treat you real bad, but if I don't treat you real bad
what else would we have

Song Title: TRIP TO THE MOON
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music, lyrics: Smith)


there she is I see her crying again, I can see your pain it seems so
unfair, that your entire life you've been hurt by him, but I know
she'll go back to the old man again

I just want to take a trip to the moon, I can see somebody
walking on the sun, I just want to take a trip to the moon

there's the old fart who screams at his wife, I'd like to tell him to
go and get a life, and when I tell him exactly what I think
I'd like to send him flying to the moon, Alice

I just want to take a trip to the moon, I can see somebody
walking on the sun, I just want to take a trip to the moon

I can see somebody riding high on a runaway, rocketship
rollercoaster ride, no need to get hit in order to get high
"I get this feeling I'm about to die," she says, "but for some
strange reason I don't seem to mind."

I just want to take a trip to the moon, I can see somebody
walking on the sun, I just want to take a trip to the moon

walk barefoot across the desert floor, you can see sand
for miles there is no shore, as your feet drag across a
powdered sheet of white hot coals, if that were me I guess
my feet would be sore

I just want to take a trip to the moon, I can see somebody
walking on the sun, I just want to take a trip to the moon

Song Title: VERY SEXY THING
Artist: D. Ian Smith
Album: The Accordion Through The Marshall Stack
(music: Smith/Treichel/Ruston/Morin, lyrics: Smith)


well you're a very sexy thing, yes I love you so much
you know I'm going crazy here dying for your touch
I know you don't want me and it hurts me so much, that I
gotta make you mine, I'm not giving up

well you're a very sexy thing, yes I love you so much
you know I'm going crazy here dying for your touch
I know you don't want me and it hurts me so much, that I
gotta make you mine, I'm not giving up
I gotta make you mine, I gotta make you mine
I'm not giving up...

well you treat me real bad just like I knew you would
I try to get away 'cause I know I should
I keep coming back for more because the abuse is so good

I like looking at you, it takes my mind off of her
but you can't disappoint me, no, because it's her that I want, (yeah)
I guess in the end I get what I deserve, and I'm totally fine
with the fact you don't know I'm alive, yes I'm totally fine
with the fact you don't know I'm alive

I like looking at you, it takes my mind off of her
but you can't disappoint me, no, because it's her that I want, (yeah)
I guess in the end I get what I deserve, and I'm totally fine
with the fact you don't know I'm alive, yes I'm totally fine
with the fact you don't know I'm alive

Song Title: BOSSY COW
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music: Smith/Payne/Ylitalo, lyrics: Smith)


why must you be a bossy cow,
you think that you're so smart,
I have to wonder how
why must you be a bossy cow,
you think that you're so smart,
I have to wonder how

ever since we met, y' know I could not believe my luck,
but you opened up your mouth, and I felt like telling you to shut up!
now I sit at home, I unplug my telephone,
and I hide up in my attic,
'cause you won't leave me alone...

I know that both of your parents tried to raise you right
but you act obnoxious like it's some god-given right
I know that both of your parents tried to raise you right
but you act obnoxious like it's some god-given right

for Pete's sake, my phone rings day and night
you're waking me out of bed, and all you want to do is fight
isn't it enough that you're always in my face, every time I see you
all I hear is you complaining...

"hey, what are these guys doing?"
"eh, what is this crap?"
"you can't dance to this shit!"
"you got the nerve to call that music? play something good, man!"
"I could get something better out of my beat box at home"
"play something you can dance to...
do you expect me to pay five bucks to come hear this shit?"

why must you be a bossy cow,
you think that you're so smart,
I have to wonder how
why must you be a bossy cow,
you think that you're so smart,
I have to wonder how

ever since we met y' know I could not believe my luck,
but you opened up your mouth, and I felt like telling you to shut up!
now I sit at home, I unplug my telephone,
and I hide up in my attic, 'cause you won't leave me alone...

Song Title: BREAKING FREE
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music: Smith/Payne/Ylitalo, lyrics: Payne)


sometimes I want to run away, and leave it all behind me
to live free and take it day by day, and let fate lead me blind
I'm going crazy in this security, life is just too safe
this day to day is killing me, and I need a new change of pace

but when I think I can no longer stand, I see that glimmer in the sand
and with a sense of duty I push on, without the strength to cut my bonds
and I want to break free from responsibility
I want to break free from security, I want to break free from anxiety
oh yeah, I want to break free

although my choices are my own, as is duty to decision
I'll nail myself back to the stone, and wish I'd chosen free living
I'm aware that life is what you make it' and it must come from within
sometimes it seems I only fake it, reality seems so thin

but when I think I can no longer stand, I see that glimmer in the sand
and with a sense of duty I push on, without the strength to cut my bonds
and I want to break free from responsibility
I want to break free from security, I want to break free from anxiety
oh yeah, I want to break free

but one of these days I will break free, and live my life
the way I want it to be
but one of these days I will break free, and live my life
the way I want it to be

sometimes I want to run away, and leave it all behind me
to live free and take it day by day, and let fate lead me blind
I'm going crazy in this security, life is just too safe
this day to day is killing me, and I need a new change of pace

but when I think I can no longer stand, I see that glimmer in the sand
and with a sense of duty I push on, without the strength to cut my bonds
and I want to break free from responsibility
I want to break free from security, I want to break free from anxiety
oh yeah, I want to break free

Song Title: CALL THE COPS
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music, lyrics: Smith)


as the wagon wheels of life go rolling by
I watch you defend your toxic hotdog stand
neither rain, nor wind, nor sleet, nor snow
nor blood, nor piss, nor vomit can scare you away

so, tell me, what treasure do you now buy
with your newly earned coin?
and, what pleasures does Biff derive
as his pointed toe boots smash in somebody's face and groin,
as he then takes his sister home,
and spills himself into her loins?

ah, look... the rodents are approaching.
the feeding frenzy is about to begin...

call the cops, the bar let out, the drunks are fighting in the parking lot
watch them fight, hear them shout, watch them pound each other to a snot
see them beat each other to a pulp, watch them knock each other's brains out

spend the night inside the tank, where you can throe up what you drank
spend the night inside the tank, where you can throe up what you drank
first you drink, then you stink, that's what you get when you don't think...

it's party time down at the ok corral. people are smoking, eating, drinking,
dancing, cajoling, cavorting, belching, and, farting...
that girl you've been watching, she's finally noticed you.
maybe you can buy her a drink, and later she will take you home,
tie you to the bed, and do nasty things to you.
is she impressed, as you stumble over to her table,
fumble over her friends, mumbling your introduction,
breathing an intoxicating aroma of beer and vomit in her face,
as you whisper sweet nausea in her ear.
but we don't get to see how things pan out;
things are getting are getting ugly, the patrons are getting rowdy,
and the old time saloon erupts into a rabid orgy of violence.
men on top of men.
women on top of women.

people are pushing, shoving, smashing, hitting... night sticks, pepper-spray barking dogs, and cops! lots and lots of cops!
"okay everybody, up against the wall! constable crazy-finger here, full cavity search for everyone!"
"it's okay officer, I haven't been drinking..."
"you're still too drunk to drive!"
"oh yeah, says who?"
"says me, I'm a cop!"
"well fuck you, I'm a cop!"

finally, it's closing time. only a few stragglers are left behind. the victor stands, truly proud.

boastfully he gloats out loud, "the last one is mine."

call the cops, the bar let out, the drunks are fighting in the parking lot
watch them fight, hear them shout, watch them pound each other to a snot
see them beat each other to a pulp, watch them knock each other's brains out
call the cops, the bar let out, the drunks are fighting in the parking lot
watch them fight, hear them shout, watch them pound each other to a snot
see them beat each other to a pulp

Song Title: FRANK'S AFRICAN DRUM
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: King Of The Castle
(music: Smith/Ylitalo/Payne, lyrics: Smith)


Frank went down to hang out at Wreck Beach
the cops did a raid and took some folks away...
well I met this naked girl, oh man, she had a strange tattoo
I'm not saying where, but I couldn't help but stare at you...

and your talk was so eerie
that even as we spoke
I could somehow, somehow
tell that your heartbeat was frozen

Frank grabbed his drum to chase away the sun
what else could he do, the cops stole everyone...
when the battle was won, and the sun had gone down
Frank jumped in his van and headed back to town...

and your talk was so eerie
that even as we spoke
I could somehow, somehow
tell that your heartbeat was frozen

the ex-wife walks into my house like some invited guest
she eats up all my Chinese food, and leaves me with the mess
maybe if I had the locks changed on my door, if I tell her
that I've moved away, that nobody lives here anymore

Frank went down to hang out at Wreck Beach
the cops did a raid and took some folks away...
well I met this naked girl, oh man, she had a strange tattoo
I'm not saying where, but I couldn't help but stare at you...

and your talk was so eerie
that even as we spoke
I could somehow, somehow
tell that your heartbeat was frozen

there's a new message to give to the head of state

betcha won't be so smug when we crash the gate
betcha won't be so smug when we crash the gate

it's too bad you got caught with your pants down
it's too bad you got caught with your pants down

betcha won't be so smug when we crash the gate
betcha won't be so smug when we crash the gate

I didn't mean to crash your private party
I didn't mean to crash your private party

betcha don't look so smug now I've crashed the gate
betcha don't look so smug now I've crashed the gate
betcha don't look so smug now I've crashed the gate

Song Title: GET A GRIP
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music: Payne/Smith/Ylitalo, lyrics: Smith)


all my life I've found it hard
to deal with things beyond my grasp
and I think that it's time I dealt the cards
and stand and watch what comes to pass

I just can't seem to get a grip on things
they somehow manage to slip away
but no matter how far I try and run away
they somehow manage to catch up with me...

I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
but no matter how close my dreams may seem, they somehow manage to slip away from me

when I can't escape my sleep
and I find myself plunge deeper and deeper
but I'm more afraid to be awake
'cause in the waking world there's more at stake

it's hard to grasp onto reality
when you're not sure exactly what is real
but rest assured the price you pay is big
when you can't control the way you feel

I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
but no matter how close my dreams may seem, they somehow manage to slip away from me

all my life I've found it hard
to deal with things beyond my grasp
and I think that it's time I dealt the cards
and stand and watch what comes to pass
I just can't seem to get a grip on things
they somehow manage to slip away
but no matter how far I try and run away
they somehow manage to catch up with me...

I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
I just can't seem to get a grip on things, they somehow manage to slip away
but no matter how close my dreams may seem, they somehow manage to slip away from me

they somehow manage to slip away...
they somehow manage to slip away...
they somehow manage to slip away...
they somehow manage to slip away...

Song Title: NOBODY KNOWS, NOBODY CARES
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music: Payne/Smith/Ylitalo, lyrics: Payne/Smith)


nobody knows about what's going on,
nobody knows what to do
nobody knows about what's going on,
because everyone's high on glue

I suppose no one wants to be the one
to miss out on all the fun
I suppose it must take a real tough guy
to say "I'm not afraid to die
and I don't give, I don't give,
I don't give a damn if I die or live"

nobody cares about what's going on,
nobody cares what they do
they don't really care about me,
and they definitely don't give a shit about you...
and they don't give, they don't give,
they don't give a good fuck if we die or live!

well you're fearing for your life
'cause you were peeping at somebody's wife

now everybody knows you're a fool
now you're on the run
'cause somebody dialed up 911
don't you think that's a bit much,
'cause you were just out there having fun...

peeping tom – I don't go to movies, I'm a
peeping tom – instead of watching TV, I'm a
peeping tom – I call it window shopping, I'm a
peeping tom – I guess there ain't no stopping me

it's no fun when you get caught,
I guess that puts you in a spot
it's hard to face all the guys at work
when they all think that you're a jerk
have no fear your lawyer's here
and pretty soon your name is cleared
and you can go right on back to your favourite hobby,
right on back, back to being a...

peeping tom – I don't go to movies, I'm a
peeping tom – instead of watching TV, I'm a
peeping tom – I call it window shopping, I'm a
peeping tom – I guess there ain't no stopping me

why pay money when you can see
your next door neighbour strip for free
and who would you people blame
if it weren't for guys like me?
I've never had the urge to streak
I only have the urge to peek
but as long as somebody freaks
I guess I'll always have to sneak...

peeping tom – I don't go to movies, I'm a
peeping tom – instead of watching TV, I'm a

Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music: Payne/Smith/Ylitalo, lyrics: Smith)


Smelly has a problem keeping clean,
it's not your fault but people
they seem to have a thing for being mean these days,
you see it all the time...

I know you want to fit in,
but you know times have changed
it seems these days you just can't win...

oh, Smelly my friend,
you were all alone in the world
left alone to plot your revenge...

oh, Smelly my friend,
you were all alone in the world,
left alone to plot your revenge...

yeah, so inclined to destroy yourself,
and maybe while you're at it
you'll take out a few of us in the process

Smelly has a problem keeping clean,
it's not your fault but people
they seem to have a thing for being mean these days,
you see it all the time...

Song Title: SOMALIA
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music: Smith/Payne/Ylitalo, lyrics: Smith)


the white man, or, just the rich man, has been raping Africa
enslaving people, poaching wildlife, appropriating resources
chipping away with his imperialist chisel of cultural... inferiority
his white man, Tarzan... king of the jungle

rainforest depletion, cattle farming... public apathy is most alarming
grain is used for livestock, while people dying... crazy lifeboat theory
used for justifying, thinning out the herd, all throughout the world
clinging to their vine, as Tarzan swings on by

starvation, dehydration, scurvy... evaporation is history is evaporating
water isn't mixing with your oil tanker... rain is now forgotten
plant life extinction, wildlife extinction, human being extinction

Song Title: SPIDER SENSES
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music/lyrics: Smith)


so you don't like drunks, eh, well don't be such a spaz...
I didn't mean to kill your kid,
there's no need to have a calf about it...

"your ignorance has the reek of flatulence,
and I can tell from the smell, that you lack intelligence"

I'm not so hip to driving defensive,
I just get out on the road
and like to use my spider senses

I'm not so hip to driving defensive,
I just get out on the road
and like to use my spider senses

well you know I get a charge from all my verbal discharge
I must think I'm a bigwig since my head's so bloody large
and I keep my shirt unbuttoned just to show my hairy chest
but everybody can see my macho act is well, you know the rest

I'm not so hip to driving defensive,
I just get out on the road
and like to use my spider senses

I'm not so hip to driving defensive,
I just get out on the road
and like to use my spider senses

who pays attention when it comes to stop signs,
why bother using signals,
or looking left or right?

stop at intersections
and waiting for pedestrians
do you think that maybe someday Jack
you'll learn your bloody lesson?
no, because...

I'm not so hip to driving defensive,
I just get out on the road
and like to use my spider senses

I'm not so hip to driving defensive,
I just get out on the road
and like to use my spider senses

spider senses...

To download this song (free), go to the music page.

well there was a man named Michael, who rode a motorcycle
Michael knew no fear, for he was a cavalier...
and along the dried up gulch the rattlesnakes they did the shakes,
but Mike just rode his bike and kept his cool, he's no fool...

I say Michael, you know he was a wanted man,
and you know he done too much wheeling and dealing,
and drinking and fighting and cheating and stealing...
I say Michael, you know he was a wanted man,
and you know he done too much wheeling and dealing,
and drinking and fighting, and touching and feeling...

so Michael was a wanted man who roamed alone in the wasteland,
a handsome price was on his head, paid to the one who shot him dead
and though used to bounty hunters, Isabelle was on his trail,
and when it came to tracking down, Isabelle had never failed...

I say Michael, you know he was a wanted man,
and you know he done too much wheeling and dealing,
and drinking and fighting and cheating and stealing...
I say Michael, you know he was a wanted man,
and you know he done too much wheeling and dealing,
and drinking and fighting, and touching and feeling...

a showdown had begun, Isabelle was first to draw her gun,
and as she shot Mike down, a snake had left marks of its own...
the closest help was too far off, and as she drew her final breath,
Isabelle realized pursuing Mike brought only death...

I say Michael, you know he was a wanted man,
and you know he done too much wheeling and dealing,
and drinking and fighting and cheating and stealing...
I say Michael, you know he was a wanted man,
and you know he done too much wheeling and dealing,
and drinking and fighting, and touching and feeling...

Song Title: TOUGH GUY
Artist: Swackhammer
Album: Poachers: The Revenge Of The Angry Young Swackyderms
(music: Smith/Payne/Ylitalo, lyrics: Smith)


it makes me sick to see you acting like a tough guy
you think that you're a big shot, I have to wonder why
it would seem to give you pride to think that you're a tough guy
but your moronic behaviour simply gives you away

everybody wants to be
everybody wants to be
everybody wants to be a tough guy

it's a shithead's fantasy to think that you're a tough guy
it's the latest craze to be the biggest dickhead you can be
well you see that woman there, her boyfriend is a tough guy
but he won't see it coming when she kicks his behind

everybody wants to be
everybody wants to be
everybody wants to be a tough guy

it's really very easy to think that you're a tough guy
just go find some old lady and punch her in the eye
it would seem to give you pride to think that you're a tough guy
if they won't do what you say, they might think you're afraid

everybody wants to be
everybody wants to be
everybody wants to be a tough guy

Can it be wrong, am I the one
A daughter or a son, can it be undone
If I was wrong, it was my fault, and I am the one
Oh, what's to be done

Oh, I don't know what to do, if you'll
marry me and be my wife, I will love you the rest of my life
Baby, marry me, and be my wife, I will
love you the rest of my life

I don't know what to do
I don't know what to say
I don't know where to go
Or if I should stay
Yeah, but if there was no baby on the way
would you still marry me and love me 'til my dying day

I don't know what to do
I don't know what to say
I don't know where to go
Or if I should stay
But, if you'll marry me, and be my wife
I will love you, I will love you the rest of my life

Artist: Beating Raoul
Album: King Of The Castle
(music: Ishida/Smith, lyrics: Smith)


Everyone you meet seems to think you're such a jerk, but
they don't understand it has to do with where you're working, and I
know you're sad and lonely, but you could have been my friend
Everybody knows that your head is full of shit, you like to
talk it good, but you don't know what it is, and I
know you're sad and lonely, but you could have been my friend

Life isn't fair, you say, everybody lied to me
Even all these faces I've been watching on my T.V.
Life isn't fair, you say, everybody lied to me
Even all these faces I've been watching on my T.V.

Everybody knows that your wife is such a bitch, she only sticks around
hoping someday to get rich, and I know you're sad and lonely
but you could have been my friend
And when you walk into the room, and all the faces look at you, and
they all want to know just where the hell you think you're going, and I
know you're sad and lonely, but you could Have been my friend

Life isn't fair, you say, everybody lied to me
Even all these faces I've been watching on my T.V.
Life isn't fair, you say, everybody lied to me
Even all these faces I've been watching on my T.V.

Even all the faces...

Everyone you meet seems to think you're such a jerk, but
they don't understand it has to do with where you're working, and I
know you're sad and lonely, but you could have been my friend
I guess it serves you right for wanting to believe, all those
tabloid talk shows you've been watching on your T.V., and I
know you're sad and lonely, but you could have been my friend

I know you're sad and lonely, but you could have been my friend...

You call your psychic and say you've done some thinking
You can't help feeling that maybe he's crazy
You call some hot line, only fifty cents a minute
It looks like it's your turn to be another winning candidate

Someone tell the President that Bigfoot is real
Everybody knows it, everybody knows it
Someone tell the President that Bigfoot is real
Everybody knows it, everybody knows it

Everybody knows that Bigfoot is true
He tripped over my bar-b-que and swam in my pool
Bigfoot is real, yeah he ran through my yard, and he
  barked at my dog and drove off in my car

Someone tell the President that Bigfoot is real
Everybody knows it, everybody knows it
Someone tell the president that Bigfoot is real
Everybody knows it, everybody knows it

In another life, well I might believe in spooks, and I
  might believe in ghosts, and maybe U.F.O.s
Will I go to Heaven when I end up dead, or am I not worthy
  to make it up there

Everybody knows that Bigfoot is true
He tripped over my bar-b-que and swam in my pool
Bigfoot is real, yeah he ran through my yard, and he

Someone tell the President that Bigfoot is real
Everybody knows it, everybody knows it
Someone tell the President that Bigfoot is real

Daddy went to jail
Yeah, but now he's out on bail
And somebody spread the word
That your old man is a jailbird

Have you heard the word
That your old man is a jailbird

Make no mistake
That the old man is a fake
And he doesn't even care
That his family is at stake
But you can rest assured
That somebody spread the word
And now everybody's heard
That your old man is a jailbird

Have you heard the word
That your old man is a jailbird

I remember when I was young
Being told I would be no one
And the funny thing is how I believed it
I remember when I was young
Being told I would be no one
And the funny thing is how I believed it, yeah...

Daddy went to jail
Yeah but now he's out on bail
And somebody spread the word
That your old man is a jailbird

Make no mistake
That the old man is a fake
And he doesn't even care
That his family is at stake
But you can rest assured
That somebody spread the word
And now everybody's heard
That your old man is a jailbird

Have you heard the word
That your old man is a jailbird
(When are you coming home daddy?)
I remember when I was young
Being told I would be no one
And the funny thing is
How I believed it

Ever since I found out that you are engaged
I've had a hard time knowing what to say
And I'm not sure just how I should behave
Yeah, and I'm dying for you
Oh, and I'm dying for you

You look at me and feel somewhat estranged
It's unlike you to not have much to say
And I can't help feeling that I let you get away
And I'm dying for you
Yeah, and I'm dying for you

Oh yeah, why can't you understand that I hate seeing
  you with another man, yeah
I know I'm thinking about myself, that I should be
  thinking about someone else instead

So he tries to lock you up inside some cage
If I were him maybe I'd feel the same
If I heard the doubt in everything you say
And I'm dying for you
Yeah, and I'm dying for you

It does more harm when you don't act too smart
Now that shit's really dumb

It's my world too
I have the right to enjoy it as much as you
I say I have the right, yes
  I have the right...

It does no harm if I'm right off the farm
And if I am, so what is it to you
It does no harm for me to end up bald
Just wait there buddy, your turn is coming soon

It's my world too
I have the right to enjoy it as much as you
I say I have the right, yes
  I have the right...

It does no harm for me to look the way I do, and
  watch The Simpsons, The Flintstones, and maybe porno films
And if I don't, well I guess that's alright too
It does no harm if I don't agree with you

It's my world too
I have the right to enjoy it as much as you
I say I have the right, yes
  I have the right...

Well I once knew a man named Mountain Mike, he was the
meanest prick I ever knew in my life, I said I once knew a man named

So whatcha gonna do, when your pantry lock is busted
Go hide Twinkies in your basement, when your
Room mate can't be trusted

My room mate's never hungry, he always gets up first
He ate up all my Eggos, (hey leggo my Eggo), and didn't leave me any
Now he wonders why I'm always acting like I'm crazy
I'm not half as dumb as I look, even though I may be lazy
So whatcha gonna do, when your pantry lock is busted
Go hide Twinkies in your basement, when your
Room mate can't be trusted

My room mate can't be trusted, my room mate can't be trusted
My room mate can't be trusted, I say my room mate can't be trusted
Now he wonders why I'm always acting like I'm crazy
I'm not half as dumb as I look no, even though,
even though I may be lazy
Now wouldn't I be better off yeah, if he would go away, go away and,

Right now she doesn't care what you're feeling
And it doesn't matter what anybody else has to say
I know that he didn't have nice things in mind
When he decided to come take you away from me

I don't give a fuck about the law
I don't give a shit about the cops, contempt of court, who me?
Because some slimy bastard hurt somebody that I love
And I swear that when I find you
You're gonna fucking pay

I know it turns you on for you to have a slave
It's just that time of day, and I know you had a craving
I'm sorry mom and dad, I can't help how you're feeling,
But I swear that when I find him, the bastard will pay...

Artist: Osea
Album: King Of The Castle
(music: Colati/Smith/Fornelli, lyrics: Smith)


I was wondering when you would call
I'd be asking you to leave me alone, if I had any brains at all
You almost sound disappointed to find out, yes, I'm alright
I'm not surprised you still want to bill me
No, it's a wonder that you didn't kill me

You and I both know the drill
It's your time of month and you need to grill me
To see if you've broken my will

It's my fault if I'm being hosed
No one but myself to blame for you
  leading me around by my nose, (and my...)

You and I both know the drill
It's your time of month and you need to grill me
To see if you've broken my will
And I know that's how you get your thrill
To see how far you can provoke me
Yes that's right, you and I both know the drill

I know I won't live to see the day
Where you and I can both be happy
But what I would not give to see your face
When you find out that I'm leaving

(No, I don't think we should talk,
  I told you I'm not mad
  it's just we have nothing left to talk about
  Except the past!)

You and I both know the drill
It's your time of month and you need to grill me
To see if you've broken my will
And I know it's how you get your thrill
To see how far you can provoke me
Yes that's right, you and I both know the drill

I know I tried to refuse, I always knew it must be you
Nobody else would do

I never thought I'd meet someone, what do you know sure enough
that there would come a time I would finally meet someone
who would make me want to fall in love again, again

I never thought I'd fall in love, I thought last time would be enough
to make me say enough's enough
I thought last time I made up my mind about
never risking letting anybody walking out on me, and losing
one more time, to piece myself together again
I thought last time was the end

I never thought I'd be good enough to have you tell me I'm the one
that there would come a time I would finally meet someone, who would

Artist: Osea
Album: King Of The Castle
(music: Colati/Smith/Menard/Fornelli, lyrics: Smith)


my room mate hasn't killed anybody,
but you can't be too sure of anything that anybody says these days
and my friend Carlo, he's real nasty
he sells drugs, and he's only twenty-one, by the way
did I mention that I own an unregistered gun,
and if I ever use it, and should they find your body
they couldn't trace the bullets, so don't you worry
because they'd never know it was me
hey, by the way, how's Carlos doing?

even though you said you wouldn't be my friend, I should let you know
  that I really do like you (most of the time)
and my room mate says he doesn't want to kill me
but I think that I will sleep
  with one eye open just the same
if you won't leave, if I don't get my way, then I suppose that
  I could Just(a) Kill(a) you and make it Look(a) like a suicide
yeah, yeah, by the way how's Carlos doing?

and by the way, how is Carlos doing?
if you mispronounce the name, I should kill you I'm afraid
if I go crazy and these words incriminate me
will I take the heat, (there's always you that I could frame)
I wish that I could hope for somebody to come save me
I hope it doesn't show that I'm trying real, real real hard to be brave
hey, by the way how's Carlos doing?

This is the second time tonight that I've told you I don't have a light
You want to know where I've been, how about watching T.V. with some of my friends
I just want to go home, while you want to find a rave, meet some chicks, score some beer,
smoke some weed, maybe do a little e.

So, you and I, we both have the same name. Isn't it strange, isn't it strange?
Strangers in the night, it's late in winter,crossing a bridge over the river...

Hey, you up ahead, what is it that you see? My new friend asks me, "Is that a dead body?"
No way Jose, if that were the case, there would be cops and an ambulance and shit all over the place.
It's probably some drunk who's all passed out. We'll just call the wagon so they can
get him someplace warm. I walk home here every night; at this time of year this bridge is always cold.
You don't want to lay here too long, but hey, it looks like you don't mind BECAUSE YOU'RE DEAD!
Jesus, have you had a bad day: just look at your face; what did they do to your face?

If you think you've had it bad, it could be worse just look at him. I can tell that he's no longer
here by the colour of his hands. The shock is setting in, I feel terrified, and I'm going mad.
This guy was just on his way home just the same as me. He was probably on his way home to see his family. That's right, he's probably somebody's dad.

In memory of Doug Gormley

Song Title: TWO BIG HELGAS (IN A FOOD FIGHT)
Artist: Osea
Album: King Of The Castle
(music: Colati/Smith/Fornelli, lyrics: Fornelli/Smith)


Ava and Valerie are fighting once more, yes they are fighting once more
Ava and Valerie are fighting once more
Yes they are fighting once more...

I'm dish washing downtown, in this continental deli
Steam is rising from the dishes, I'm hot and sweaty in this kitchen
And the head waiter is bitching that a
customer's complaining about a new trainee for spilling all his food on everybody
and their argument is heating, and the food has started flying
Now when I get home I have to wonder have I gone, have I gone crazy

Yes they are fighting once more...

You all misbehave, but if I had my way
you would play this CD backwards, the brainwashing would take place
And there wouldn't be fighting anymore
There wouldn't be fighting anymore...

Song Title: MY LITTLE FRIEND
Artist: Howlin' Catfish
Album: King Of The Castle
(music & lyrics: Smith/Treichel)


Well my old man he done said to me,
"What's the big idea acting like you were three"
He said "You may be proud of your little friend,
but I ain't impressed by your bare - assed rear end!"

I'm not ashamed of my little friend, I'll stick with him right until the end
I'm not ashamed of my little friend, and I don't care what no old man says

The lady next door she done give me a call
"You can't run around with no clothes on at all."
"Well I'm asking you ma'am, could you not bother me
it's my own back yard, and I'll do as I please."

I'm not ashamed of my little friend, I'll stick with him right until the end
I'm not ashamed of my little friend, and I don't care what no old man says

Well you know the lady, the lady next door, she done give me a call, yeah
And you know she tries to tell me, you can't run around
run around with no clothes on at all, yeah
"Well I'm asking you ma'am, could you just shut your mouth
I'll do what I want, in my own damn house
Where I can declare the freedom, where I can declare the freedom
Where I can declare the freedom, where I can declare the freedom
Where I can declare the freedom, where I can declare the freedom
Where I can declare the freedom, where I can declare the freedom...
Where I can declare the freedom to be naked in my own damn house yeah,
Naked in my own damn house yeah yeah yeah."

Song Title: TACKY TOURIST SHUFFLE
Artist: Howlin' Catfish
Album: King Of The Castle
(music: Smith/Treichel, lyrics: Smith)


The airport lost my luggage, man, and that's the good news
They lost all my good clothes and a brand new pair of shoes
I got the tacky tourist blues, I got the tacky tourist blues
Well I thought a vacation would help me to unwind, but I
had to come home, 'cause I nearly lost my mind

My wife left the airport in a brand new limousine
The way she spends our money, you'd think she was the Queen
I got the tacky tourist blues, I got the tacky tourist blues
Well I thought a vacation would be a good time, but the
hotel and the airlines, they just robbed me blind
Yeah, let's go to Jamaica

Sitting on the beach, this lady goes walking by
My wife she didn't say nothing, just gave me the evil eye
I've got the tacky tourist blues, I've got the tacky tourist blues
The doctor told me a vacation would help ease my mind, but I
had to come home, it was just a waste of time

The airport lost my luggage, man, and that's the good news
They lost all my good clothes and a brand new pair of shoes
I got the tacky tourist blues, I got the tacky tourist blues
Well I thought a vacation would help me to unwind, but I
had to come home, 'cause I nearly lost my mind

Song Title: WHISKEY FACE
Artist: Howlin' Catfish
Album: King Of The Castle
(music: Smith, lyrics: Treichel)


If it gets hard relax, take a drink, yeah and
hide behind your whiskey face
Don't think too much sit back, take a drink yeah and
hide behind your whiskey face

And your eyes can shine, like the
bottom of the glass, they can sparkle like
diamonds on your whiskey face

When life gets ugly laugh
just take a drink and
laugh all over your whiskey face
and when you shake so bad
just take a drink, yeah and
slide past your whiskey face

And your eyes can shine, like the
bottom of the glass, they can sparkle like
diamonds on your whiskey face

If life gets hard relax, just take a drink and
laugh all over your whiskey face
And when you shake so bad, you just take a drink
and let it spill on past your whiskey face

And your eyes can shine, like the
bottom of the glass, they can sparkle like
diamonds on your whiskey face
And your eyes can shine, at the
bottom of the glass, they can sparkle like
diamonds on your whiskey face

Squeeky Leek lyrics

Rural Gutter Gas Tank Kiss


Song Title: RURAL GUTTER GAS TANK KISS
Artist: Squeeky Leek
Album: King Of The Castle
 (originally released on Squeeky Leek's "Jamming With Jerks" cassette
(music: Luciw/Smith/McLaren/Ylitalo, syllables: McLaren, lyrics: Smith)


No, don't be startled, perhaps we'll find
Somewhere ahead I can buy us some fuel and food
But I see a light that's left on, Ooh a light inside the store
Maybe this light can buy us some time...

Ooh yeah, boy it gets so hot this time of day
But there's something oh that I lost yes I know it's gone now
Wait right here while I go and find it, but it's just a little too, just a little too late
Yes it's just a little, a little too late, oh, and pouring gas on fire
Well now, that will never never do...

But he's gone insane, and I realize, you've been put in ya place i yi yi...
