Just picked up a new copy of Junkyard's S/T debut from Amazon and I love it when the booklets don't include lyrics. :doh:

 

Can anyone out there help me out? I can only find the lyrics to Simple Man and Can't Hold Back.

Found a few.

 

 

Junkyard - Hollywood lyrics

 

See the boy on the corner,

He's only twelve years old.

Every night he's out there doin' his best,

To get his goodies sold.

Cause he's gotta feed his momma,

Gotta beat off a couple a dads.

They just come around,

When they feel like bangin' in the bag, yea...

 

(Chorus)

Aww, that's life,

In Hollywood.

Where what's bad,

Just seemed to be good.

That's life,

In Hollywood.

I love the place,

Am I misunderstood?

 

Livin' in a junkyard,

Livin' like a couple a thieves.

Well I can't go to my homeboys place,

Cause I got no gasoline.

But if you say you're buyin',

Then I'll have another round.

And if you've got the money honey,

Well I'll drink you down, yea...

 

(Chorus)

 

(Solo)

 

Got shootings down the freeway,

Shootings down my street.

Fine lookin' lady on the corner says,

"Hey boy, I'll sell you a treat".

Well that's my lovely city,

That's my neighborhood.

I live like I want to,

Not like I should, yea...

 

Yea...yea...yea...

 

(Chorus)

 

Junkyard - Hands Off lyrics

 

Threw my clothes in the yard

Ran over my foot with your car

Don't try to say it was just an accident

Then you stole all my shoes

Now what the hell am I gonna do

When I don't even know what I did

 

It ain't yours, it ain't mine

It won't matter in time

`Cause we both know just where this things goin'

`Cause we'd dance around `til we'd verbally pound

But ya scratched out my love with those fingers

 

Baby, get your hands off my throat

`Cause I can't breathe, I can't

Get your hands off my throat

Now I'll get my coat and leave

I'll leave, baby

 

We've had some fun

But we were ever one

`Til we found out we were no one at all

 

All The Time In The World lyrics by Junkyard

 

Theres something about it somethings not quite right

Im spending days with the TV

and staying up all night

But im nothing without it

my license of steel

Im waitin waitin for something

that might not ever be real

(Chorus)

I got all the time in the world

I got nothing to do

I got all the time in the world

Spending it waitin with you

well im lying on my back

just starin at the ceiling

got no reason to get out of my bed

lookin for a line that will make me a million

so in tale aint gotta to me yet

aint no reason to wait for the weekend

cuz everyday is saturday night

but the thrills wearin thin

cuz the state im in

aint no way to spend my whole life

(Chorus)

I got all the time in the world

I got nothing to do

I got all the time in the world

Im Spending it waitin with you

yeah yeah I Got time

countin down and waitin in line

used to seem so pretty

ahhh comin to me

ah looks like ive gone blind

yeah

Guitar solo:

Gimmie sumthin for nuttin

if nuttin is free

ahh hold on hey cuz things are goin great

and they got nuthin to do with me

(Chorus)

I got all the time in the world

I got nothing to do

I got all the time in the world

Spending it waitin with you

And now that we're through

For another day or two

Tell me, baby, why don't you call

Just call me

 

Get your hands off my throat

`Cause, baby, I can't, I can't breathe, baby

Get your hands off my throat

I get my coat and leave

 

(Solo)

 

Ooh

Well, I remember the time

Well, let me freshen your mind

You told me

David, I, I need, I think it's time I have a little space

So then I try to be the understanding man

You just call a woody allen character about the whole thing

I said that's cool, I understand, I pack my bags

And get outta your face

 

Then for three days on end

She was in bed with my best friend

Discussing every problem

She cried, she begged, David, we didn't really do anything

He's a really understanding guy, and he really just listens

And I said

Baby, you gave him head

God damn

 

Get your hands off my throat

`Cause baby, I can't breathe, I can't

Get your hands off my throat

And I get my coat and leave

 

Pack my bags and walk out the door

Lord, I can't take no more, yeah

Get your hands off my throat

Well, I get my coat and leave

 

 

Misery Loves Company lyrics by Junkyard

 

well you say your life is such a dragwell I know that much is true

but it amazes me that you never noticed

that the biggest drag in life is you

such a mess, was a prize or depress

so what the hell am I supposed to do

you wanna sit in your chair

and play with your hair

while the world crashes in on you

(chorus)

Misery loves company

but theres nothing I can do

Misery loves company

but dont drag me down with you

dont drag me down

 

Now dontcha call me on the phone

just to see if Im home

and then you drag me down into your blues

dont look that way , dont ask if you can stay

cuz I gotta get away from you

you dont need my help or my advice

your just looking for my company

the only time you ever come around

is when your lookin for my sympathy

(chorus)

Misery loves company

but theres nothing I can do for you

Misery loves company

but dont drag me down with you

well well dont drag me down

(guitar solo)

(chorus)

Misery loves company

but what the hell am I suppose to do yeah

Misery loves company

but dont drag me down with you

 

wrote this song just for you darling

so you know just how i feel

not that i dont care for you

its just your problems really just aint real

living in some kind of fantasy world

that you created for yourself

well thats fine by me

if you wanna feel that way

just dont drag down everyone else

cuz honey

(chorus)

Misery loves company

but theres nothing I can do

Misery loves company

but dont drag me down with you

Misery loves company

but what the hell am i suppose to do

Misery loves company

but dont drag me down with you

well I dont wanna go down with you

yeah dont drag me down into your blues

cuz I dont wanna go down with you

 

Texas lyrics by Junkyard

 

my gal sal's got a high-class nooseshe'll be out on the street when the rent is due

but all she's got to stop my blooze

somebody's got a place rollin a deuce

(chorus)

texas chili, texas grass, texas moonshine

I love that texas ass!

lord, man, you know I do

texas air, texas swing

the guys come here and the women make me sing

lord, them belles down there, know what I mean

well, I'm on a highway born to roam

no matter the miles

I've always got a home

get back to texas

child, yes we do

houston girls are long and nice

you only gotta ask 'em twice

el paso girls send you down to the border

they make my eyes cross

they make my mouth water

(chorus)

texas chili, texas grass, texas moonshine

I love that texas ass!

lord, man, you know I do

texas air, texas swing

the guys come here and the women make me sing

? know what I mean?

well i'm on a highway born to roam

no matter the miles

I've always got a home

get back to texas

child, yes I do

 

hill country and the golden coast

the east texas girls got west texas ghosts

our panhandle grows 'em long and lean

big titties poppin' out like Ive ever seen

jalapeno cornbread all with chicken-fried bass

mexican food that'll burn yo ass

cream-style gravy holdin' it all together

maybe like to think you died and gone to heaven

I probably seen about a million states

half a million girls, been on half a million dates

half of them long, 'bout half of them nice

texas women, man, drives me twice as bad

(chorus)

texas chili, texas grass, texas moonshine

I love that texas ass!

lord, man, you know I do

well, I'm on a highway born to roam

I don't care the miles

man, I've always got a home

get back to texas

ha! yes I do

Thanks martinsane! I'll take what I can get. :headbanger:

 

As a side note, booklets without lyrics are probably my biggest pet peeve outside of albums with shitty production values. I mean, the label is already using ink to print the little booklet in the first place so why not include the damn lyrics? Junkyard's debut was a re-release to boot so there's no excuse. Ok, rant over... :wacko:

I think what annoys me more that booklets with no lyrics, are booklets with no lyrics that then tell you to visit their website for lyrics, which is just cheap and nasty plus who is to say how long they will be on the website anyway.
