Track Name: anything can happen
it's six a.m., alarm is ringing
sun is rising, birds are singing
forget your troubles, your aching head
try to remember who it was that said

in america, in america
anything can happen
anything can happen
anything can happen if you show up for work

so, brush your hair, comb your teeth
you never know who you might meet
try to remember for what it's worth
to shine your shoes and iron your shirt

(chorus)

if you're feelin' sown and busted
just can't seem to get adjusted
try to be thankful for all you've got
ball up your fist and punch the clock

(chorus)
Track Name: macho mosquito
last night a macho mosquito
with a hunger in his eye
tried to land on my sweet baby
but i caught him just in time
i caught him just in time

i said, "hey macho mosquito
let me warn you my friend
she's way too intoxicatin' for you to be drinkin' in
for you to be drinkin' in"

she put the sweet in the candy
the honey in the suckle-vine
the fine with the dandy
when she swore to be mine
she took the fear outta fallin'
even though she made me high
i started out crawlin'
now, i can fly-i can fly-i can fly

hey macho mosquito
i know you think you're tough
but feast your eyes upon her
and one taste won't be enough
one taste won't be enough

buzz off macho mosquito
don'tcha look back when you do
if you linger any longer
you'll be stuck to her like glue
stuck to her like glue

(chorus)
Track Name: no trouble on my mind
i got a job and i worked real hard
but i never seemed to get ahead
my world was fallin' apart
didn't know what was missin'

til you came along tonight
and i tried your love instead
you're holdin' me oh so tight
i'm lost in your kissin'

now, i find
there's no trouble on my mind
with you in my heart

you made it oh so clear
that the only thing i got to do
is to put away my doubt and fear
and give my love to you

right now, i find
there's no trouble on my mind
with you in my heart

now, the world can go on spinnin' around
tryin' to steal my innocence
it can kick me when i'm down
it won't make a difference

now, i find
there's no trouble on my mind
with you in my heart
there's no trouble on my mind
no trouble on my mind
with you in my heart
Track Name: nicotine & alcohol
i just smoked my last cigarette
i just drank my last can of beer
i ain't seen mr. jones yet
erstwhile he is bound to appear

with nicotine and alcohol
i'm here to tell you one and all
try to quit them they get mean
alcohol and nicotine

mr. jones works at the corner store
i tell him every time i go in
you won't see me comin' round no more
he knows i'll be right back here again

(chorus)
Track Name: she loves me anyway
she don't like me when i'm high
she don't like me when i'm low
she don't like me when i stay
she don't like me when i go
but oh, she loves me anyway

she don't like me when i talk
she don't like me when i won't
she don't like me when i play
she don't like me when i don't
but oh, she loves me anyway

and it amazes me
but it don't cease
it puzzles me
but there's no missing piece
it ain't logical
but it won't be denied
it's magical
i'm mystified

she don't like me when i'm high
she don't like me when i'm low
she don't like me when i stay
she don't like me when i go
but oh, she loves me anyway
oh oh she loves me anyway

and it amazes me
Track Name: tangled web
we practiced in the art of deceiving
now we're caught up in the sticky mess of pride
it's hard to find our way back to believin'
we're goin' 'round in circles trapped inside

a tangled web
a tangled web
what a tangled web, we're weavin'

just when we think maybe we fought clear
it feels like no way out can be found
we're wrapped up in so many lines of thought here
i think it's time we started tearin' down

this tangled web
tangled web
it's a tangled web we're weavin'

now, i ain't sayin'
all we did can be un-done
but i know we're not the first ones
to have carelessly spun

a tangled web
a tangled web
what a tangled web we're weavin'

well it's a....
Track Name: faith in me
i missed my rendezvous with destiny
i couldn't find my spectacles
now destiny is waiting patiently
while i walk around in circles

somewhere in my house or in my truck
there's a misplaced reminder
about the date i made with Lady Luck
now i don't know how to find her

but i have faith in me
so what if i ain't ever had much to say
i have faith in me
and i'll come around, i'll come around someday

judge and jury all went out for beers
my testimony dangles
like the cigarette ashes of my peers
as they network and mingle (look at 'em mingle)

but i have faith in me
so what if i ain't ever had much to say
i have faith in me
and i'll come around, i'll come around someday

i'll come around, i'll come around someday
Track Name: back in style
i use to be a has been
a fashion of the past
i was wearin' kinda thin
but i guess i was built to last

cause she left this years model
and called me up at once
to tell me she was through
with all these young punks

i'm back in style
she thinks i'm cool again
i'm back in style
shows me off to all her friends
i just have to smile
now that i'm the latest trend
it maybe only for a while
but oh, oh,oh,oh, oh
i' m back in style

i had been put out to pasture
outlived my usefulness
she was movin' faster
she told me goodbye with a kiss

i never thought i'd see the day
she would return
i guess there's always new tricks
for an old dog to learn

(chorus)
Track Name: smoke-n-shake
instrumental
Track Name: thursday
where's that girl i use to know?
the one i met in school
where's that girl that wanted so
to help me break the rules?

she's picking up the kids today
to take them to their ballet class
because it's Thursday
just because it's Thursday
i'll have a little time in the house alone
to answer the t.v. and watch the telephone
while thinking....

where's that girl i use to know
the one who was never late
where's that girl that wanted so
to take me out on a date

when we were barely 17
i made sure i washed my jeans
and shirt before Thursday
just because Thursday
was the day before we would hit the town
for a bite to eat and a drive around
then a park up a dark street
to start gettin' down
now i wonder...

where's that girl i use to know
the one i met in school
where's that girl that wanted so
to hep me break the rules

she's in the driveway, i've just seen her
unloading sleeping ballerinas, tired
because it's Thursday
just because it's Thursday
Track Name: gonna be allright
you tookthe weight of the world
for another ride today
i see it on your shoulders girl
would it help to hear me say

don't worry baby
everything's gonna be alright
come a little closer
and let me hold you tight

you're furrowed deep in the brow
i can see clear to the bone
let me plant a little faith right now
you ain't in this all alone

don't worry baby
everything's gonna b alright
just come a little closer
and let me hold you tight

don't you worry baby
everything's gonna be alright
we're just this side of tomorrow
and you're safe with me tonight

when you feel like the river is risin'
and the sky is fallin' on you
i'll be there for you to confide in
together, we can make it through

don't worry baby
everything's gonna be alright
come a little closer
and let me hold you tight

no, don't worry baby
everything is gonna be alright.
