Donnie Iris She’s So Wild

She used to be so innocent

She used to be so ignorant

She wasted all the time she spent

(Doin’ all her homework)

She wasn’t where her girlfriends went

But since I showed her what’s inside

She left her girlish ways behind

I used to work from 9 to 5

But now I’m working overtime

When I get home from work

It’s never the same

Don’t ask me how to explain

(You know I never complain)

She loves me once

And then she loves me again

Cause she’s so wild

You know she’s got her way with me

You know she gives me everything

She gives me everything I need

She’s everything a girl can be

She always meets me at the door

She always wants to give me more

She drags me down onto the floor

I never know just what’s in store

When I get home from work

It’s never the same

Don’t ask me how to explain

(You know I never complain)

She loves me once

And then she loves me again

Cause she’s so wild

But since I showed her what’s inside

She left her girlish ways behind

I used to work from 9 to 5

But now I’m working overtime

When I get home from work

It’s never the same

Don’t ask me how to explain

(You know I never complain)

She loves me once

And then she loves me again

Cause she’s so wild

Donnie Iris You’re Holding My Heart In Your Hands

You’re holding my heart in your hands

And my heart’s begun to dance

So I pray your feelings are true

For there is much that I could lose

I must go on soul control

Close my eyes and trust this road

But where it’s going I do not understand

You’re holding my heart in your hands

I am afraid of it

I am trembling

I never heard it beating

I wish you’d fly with it

I know you’re able

Take me on a rocket flight tonight

With my heart in your hands

I’m on fire, I’m hot as ash

For you I’ll take this chance

You’re holding my heart in your hands

I sometimes lay

In the twilight

Aching for your touch

Now I don’t mean to

But I need you

And baby, I’m missing you so much

You’re holding my heart in your hands

And my heart’s begun to dance

So I pray your feelings are true

For there is much that I could lose

I must go on soul control

Close my eyes and trust this road

But where it’s going I do not understand

You’re holding my heart in your hands

Donnie Iris Joking

Remember last night when we were through WITH DINNER

We watched the television lying on your bed

The lights were low and the wine went to your head

When you asked me if I still respect you

Remember when you told me this was your first time

So you wanted everything to be just right

And so I told you that I really loved you

I even said that I would marry you

But I was joking

I hope you realize

Baby Baby I was

Joking

Telling you those lies

J-j-j-joking

I was talking out my head

Joking

Don’t believe a word I said

All I wanted was little bit of…

Remember when you looked at me and said how was it

Remember when you asked if I was satisfied

And I said you were the best I ever had

Remember when I said that this was just like heaven

Remember when I said that this was ecstacy

And I never knew how kinky you could be

I told you you were BEAUTIFUL

I told you I’d never leave babe

But I was joking

I hope you realize

Joking

Telling you those lies

J-j-j-joking

Talking out my head

Joking

Don’t believe a word I said

Cause I all I wanted was a little bit

But I was joking

Messing up your head yeah

Joking

Don’t believe a word I said

J-j-j-joking

I hope you realize

Joking

Telling you those lies

Cause I all I wanted was a little bit

But I was joking

Talking out my head

Joking

Donnie Iris No Rest For The Wicked

I wear an “A” on my chest

And it won’t rub off

I’ve been beating my breast

But it won’t come off

I work all night in a smoky club

Spend all day eating wheat flag sludge

I really need to get some sleep

I really need to have some peace

I really need to get relief

No rest for the wicked tonight

So I pick up my ball and chain

And I go back to work again

I give you all my pay

What the governor don’t take

I wish that I could take a break

Whatever I did was a big mistake

No rest for the wicked tonight

I hang onto the hope we’ll see the promised land

Where there is sunshine, it makes everything look grand

I really need to get some sleep

I really need to have some peace

I really need to get relief

No rest for the wicked tonight

Donnie Iris Color Me Blue

Color me yellow,

For being afraid

Whoa yeah

Goodbye blue skies,

Color them gray

Whoa…

Color me green,

Cuz I don’t now what to do

Color me red,

Cuz you know I’m a fool

And for lovin’ you too much,

Color me blue

Call me Mr. Blue

(Color me blue)

I’ll be missin’ you

Thinking of you only,

Color me lonely

Color me blue

Now all of our white lies,

Have washed away the past

Our future’s not rosy,

Color it black

Our love was like gold,

When it was brand new

You treated it like a pair of old brown shoes

But I’m still in love with you

Color me blue

Call me Mr. Blue

(Color me blue)

I’ll be missing you

Thinking of you only,

Color me lonely

Color me blue

I should move on,

Make a fresh start with my life

Find a new love,

Someone who would treat me right

But you know I can’t forget you

Call me Mr. Blue

I’ll be missing you

Thinking of you only,

Color me lonely

Call me Mr. Blue

I’ll be missing you

Thinking of you only,

Color me lonely

King Cool…

Donnie Iris Love Messiah

I wake up, just another day

And you’re not here

I get up and I wash my face

You’re in the mirror

I see you in every girl

So I give her a whirl

But now I am so unfurled

I’m tired, sick and tired of one night stands

Day after day

Night after night

Save me, baby

Save me, love messiah

I’m so tired of

Looking for true love

Be my baby

Be my love messiah

I go down to punch the clock

Ruled by the dead hand of the past

I’m so numb I don’t feel the shock

As the empty minutes pass

I don’t feel that I feel enough

I wish I could feel your touch

But the weight, it’s just too much

And I’m tired of mediocrity

Day after day

Night after night

Save me, baby

Save me, love messiah

I’m so tired of

Looking for true love

Be my baby

Be my love messiah

I want to see what it is

Donnie Iris Fade Away

Last night I woke up dreaming

I dreamed you were on a boat

You were sailing down the Cuyahoga River

And the guard pulled up the moat

Baby, come back to me

Baby, come back to me

Baby, come back to me

Don’t fade away

And the sharks they fill the water

Yeah, they really the like the mud

They keep me at a distance

And really smell the blood

Nothing I can say

Nothing

You won’t believe me anyway

But I hope one day will come

When you’re older

When you’re older

The truth is veiled and fuzzy

And the water’s thick with fog

I was drowning in a sea of isolation

I was reaching for the log

And log became a branch

And the branch became a tree

And the true became a crucifix

It’s where you all have hung me

Nothing I can say

Nothing

You won’t believe me anyway

But I hope one day will come

When you’re older

When you’re older
