Tesla Mama’s Fool

Out on the road, and a long long way from home

Why must I be so, must I be so misunderstood

While my intentions, my intentions all are good

Wish only one time that things would turn out like they should

Just like they should

Too many times, too many times payin’ the price, just for the thrill

Too many hearts, too many times, overkill

So many times, double around, how many faces do reveal

How many folks gettin’ to be over the hill

She always told me things, like those weren’t made of sugar and spice

She always scolded me, “Don’t let the same dog bit you twice”

Well I, Lord I’ve just been fooled again

Mama she raised no fool – you did not raise no fool

Mama I ain’t no fool – I’ve just been fooled again

Mama she raised no fool – you did not raise no fool

Mama I ain’t no fool – well I’ve just been fooled again

Too many lies, shame on the wives, too many cakes and eat it too

Too many hearts goin’ straight down the tube

Hell of a dude, did it but don’t have the time and the words for use

Too many rounds, too many times, overuse

She’s always telling me, “Just take your time, always think twice”

Forever scolding me, “Don’t let the same dog bit you twice”

Well I, hell I’ve just been fooled again

Mama she raised no fool – you did not raise no fool

Mama I ain’t no fool – I’ve just been fooled again

Mama she raised no fool – she did not raise a fool

Mama I ain’t no fool

Oh, let me tell you if it happens again like it did next time

Somebody’s gonna have to walk the line, walk the line!

[Solo]

She’s always telling me, “Take my advice boy and just think twice”

Forever scolding me, “Don’t let the same dog bit you twice”

Well I, Lord I won’t be fooled again

Mama she raised no fool – you did not raise no fool

Mama I ain’t no fool – I’ve just been fooled again

Mama she ain’t no fool – I may be crazy but I ain’t no fool

Mama you crazy fool – may be crazy but I ain’t no fool

Crazy but I ain’t no fool, may be crazy, I may be crazy

Crazy but I ain’t no fool

Out in the cold, and a long long way from home

Tesla Not Fragile

Coming to you across country

Hoping Incomprehensible loud

You asked do we play heavy music

Well a thunder heads just another cloud, and we do

Not fragile, straight at you

When we vanish through the night

Still in your ears but out of sight

Not fragile

Don’t think we feel hurt or wounded

Oh, I’m either showin’ through

It’s our road that’s been disrupted

And our streets reflects from you, well it’s true

Not fragile over you

Triumphs in your getting down

Feelin’ high or just hangin’ ’round

Not fragile

The nights we traveled in our lives

Are hard and fast, and give us rath

We may seem distant lots of time

But many thoughts are still on our minds

Not fragile

Tesla Lodi

Just about a year ago, I set out on the road

Seekin’ my fame and fortune, I’m lookin’ for a pot of gold

Things got bad and things got worse, I guess you know the tune

Oh Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again

I boarded on the Greyhound, and I’m walkin’ there, by the road

I was just passin’ through, it must be seven months or more

I ran out of time and money, it looks like the two were friends

Oh Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again

[Solo]

Man from a magazine, who said I was on my way

But somewhere I lost connection, I ran out of songs to play

I planned many times of one-night stands, it looks like my plans fell through

Oh Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again

If I had a million dollars for every song I’ve sung

Or every time I had to play while people slapped their tongue

I know I’ll catch the next train, back to where I live

Oh Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again

Oh Lord, I’m stuck in Lodi again

There we go, get ready!

Tesla Song And Emotion

I see him there most ev’ry day,

A lonely man and his guitar.

In his eyes, I see the pain,

All the faces and the places,

All the trouble that he’d seen.

There was a time,

There was a day,

They’d come from miles around.

They all knew his name.

But day’s gone by are gone,

Now only memories remain.

Then he starts to play.

Suddenly the pain slowly fades away.

Tattered, torn and frayed,

There’s a place within his heart

He’ll always save for the song and emotion.

Know he’s got to his dyin’ day.

Song and emotion.

You can hear him play.

You can still hear him say,

Better run for cover ’cause it looks like rain again!

And now his life is but a shadow of his dreams.

The calm is over, been stormin’ for years.

He turns and leans his shoulder to the wind.

Lost again!

All along, on his way to the top,

Somehow, somewhere, something was lost.

Through it all he knew his only friend was

Song and emotion.

Know he’s got to his dyin’ day.

Song and emotion.

Where are they now, where are those people who promised him his dreams?

Where are they now for this lonely creature on the streets?

Broken, humbled by the cold reality.

Life at the top ain’t always what it seems.

Oh, better run for cover, ’cause it looks like rain again.

You best be careful of what you dream,

Of what you dream!

Song and emotion.

Song and emotion.

Song and emotion.

Song and emotion.

Tesla Had Enough

Me and the boys are gonna rock tonite.

Drinkin’ double shots, feelin fine. Mmmm, I like it!

I like the way, the way it makes me feel.

Now, I’m in love witcha, Lady Mary Jane.

You put my mind at ease, make me feel no pain.

Keep takin’ me, keep takin’ me higher, well, and higher.

Light my fire!

Ain’t it funny?

‘Cause the more I drink, the more I smoke, well, the better she looks.

And, honey, that’s a whole lot better, whole lot better than before.

Lord! ‘Cause you look so good. Yes, you look so fine.

Let’s steal away and blow each other’s minds.

Come on, baby. Keep takin’ me higher. Yeah, yeah, yeah, and higher!

[Chorus:]

I’ve had enough!

Ah, maybe too, too much.

And with a little luck,

You know I’ll get back up

On my feet again.

Ah, too much!

Too much to drink, too much to smoke.

I wasn’t lookin’ when it took a hold on me.

And it sure got a hold on me.

Oh, and it won’t let go. Oh no.

I’ve never been this far before.

Have I reached the point, the point of no return?

When will I learn?

[Chorus 2x]

I’ve had enough!

I’ve had enough!

Ah, maybe too, too much.

I’ve had enough!

Tesla MP3

Everything that’s known to man

Got it right here in the palm of my hand

It’s all a part of the master plan

One push of a button and you’ll understand

All you get is the information

Censoring the situation

Oh my God it’s taking me

From the phonograph record to the MP3

All the world is overrun with Technology

Oh my God it seems to me

We’ve gotta get back to Simplicity

All the world’s out of touch with reality

I can’t believe

Honest values of family

Come straight from the heart

Like the blood we bleed

And Reachin’ out to a friend in need

Means more than a text from a cell phone screen

All these sounds of complication..

In the cloud communication..

Oh my God it’s taking me

From the phonograph record to the MP3

All the world is overrun with Technology

Oh my God it seems to me

We gotta get back to Simplicity

All the world is outta touch with reality

It’s plain to see

Rewind Now!

Oh my God it’s taking me

From the phonograph record to the MP3

All the world is overrun with Technology

Oh my God it seems to me

We gotta get back to Simplicity

All the world is outta touch with reality

I Can’t believe, MP3

Tesla Little Suzi

Little Suzi’s on the up, looking for a get-away

Ruby tries to bring her down, she’s lookin’ for another way

Little Suzi’s on the up, headin’ for the spotlights

Ruby finally gets up, lookin’ for some quiet night

[Chorus:]

And the music makes her feel so hot

Ooh and she’ll smile for the camera with all she’s got

Don’t bring her down, she’s a lot like you

She’ll be richer by far if her dreams come true

Little Suzi’s on the up

Little Suzi’s on the up, now suddenly it’s not a game

Ruby’s got to give up, ‘cos Suzi’s plainly set on pain

Little Suzi’s on the up, cost in cost, your point is made

Ruby’s gonna hang around, to make sure Suzi’s okay

[Chorus]

Don’t bring her down, she’s a lot like you

She’ll be richer by far if her dreams come true

Little Suzi’s on the up

[Solo]

[Chorus]

Don’t you bring her down, she’s a lot like you

She’ll be richer by far when her dreams come true

Heading for the spotlight, oh little Suzi

Oh and the music makes her feel so hot, go little Suzi, yeah

Tesla Second Street

I could fry an egg on the street,

But it’s so cold inside.

Just trying to be me,

I can barely stay alive.

Never mind to make ends meat,

I learned to survive.

I can handle defeat,

But I refuse to be denied.

[Chorus:]

Life it goes on after all,

But me, I stumble and I fall,

Good for you who feel complete,

’cause I’m here stuck on second street.

I’ll take the hit, I’ll take the fall

With my back against the wall.

Don’t forget, remember me,

’cause I’m still stuck on second street.

Now I got to keep it real,

Right from the start.

Show exactly what I feel,

Deep with in my heart.

It’s so clear what we go to do,

No matter how hard.

’cause a dream, it can’t come true,

Until we do our part

[Chorus]

…stuck on second street…

Stop by to see me any time you want I’m always here,

In the shadows of the night living in the darkest spheres.

Don’t walk alone, stray far from home, my dear stay near, until you learn

There’s no return [x4]

[Chorus]

Life it goes on after all.

I’ll take the hit, I’ll take the fall,

With my back against the wall,

Don’t forget, remember me, still stuck on second street.
