The Lemonheads Knoxville Girl

I met a little girl in Knoxville

A town we all know well

And every Sunday evening

Out in her home I’d dwell

We decided to take an evening walk

About a mile from town

I picked a stick up off the ground

And beat that fair girl down

She fell down on her bended knee

For mercy she did cry

“Oh Willy dear, don’t kill me here, I’m unprepared to die”

She never spoke another word, I only beat her more

Until the ground around us, with all her blood did pour

I took her by her golden curls, and swung her round and round

Throwing her into the river that flows through Knoxville town

Go down, go down you Knoxville girl with dark and rolling eyes

Go down, go down you Knoxville girl, you can never be my bride

I headed back to Knoxville

Got there about midnight

My mother she was worried

And woke up in a fright

Saying “dear son, what have you done, to bloody your clothes so”

I told my anxious mother, I was bleeding out my nose

I called for me a candle to light myself to bed

I called for me a hankercheif to bind my aching head

Rolled and tumbled the whole night through, as troubles was for me

Like flames of hell around my bed, and in my eyes could see

They carried me down to Knoxville and put me in a cell

My friends all tried to get me out, but none could make my bail

I’m here to waste my life away down in this dirty old cell

Because I murdered that Knoxville girl, the girl I loved so well.

The Lemonheads Gonna Get Along Without Ya Now

Mm, hmm, mm, hmm

Gonna get along without you now

Mm, hmm, my honey, mm, hmm, my honey

Gonna get along without you now

You told me I was the neatest thing

You even asked me to wear your ring

Then you ran around with every girl in town

You never cared if it got me down

Mm, hmm, mm, hmm

Gonna get along without you now

Mm, hmm, my honey, mm, hmm, my honey

Gonna get along without you now

Got along without you before I met you

Gonna get along without you now

Gonna find somebody who’s twice as cute

‘Cause I didn’t like you anyhow

You told everybody that we were friends

But this is where our friendship ends

All of a sudden you changed your tune

You haven’t been around since way last June

Mm, hmm, mm, hmm

Gonna get along without you now

Got along without you before I met you

Gonna get along without you now

Good bye, my honey, so long, my dear

Gonna get along without you now

The Lemonheads Losing Your Mind

What a comfort to find out you’re losing your mind

And you re-realise that it’s not the first time

You burnt the beyond when you learned how to fly

Just to find later on that there isn’t a sky

There aren’t any clouds, and there aren’t any trees

There aren’t any birds, ‘cause there’s no cinder caught in my eye

‘til I’ve tied a tired knot and learned to untie it

Just can’t decide if I should lie or tell the truth and try to hide it

‘til I’ve tied a tired knot and learned to untie it

Just can’t decide if I should lie or tell the truth and try to hide it

The Lemonheads Hate Your Friends

You got problems you can’t solve,

it’s enough to make you start to hate your friends.

You go to a show and they stare at your face.

Don’t you know?

You hate your friends.

When you got problems you can’t solve,

it’s enough to make you start to hate your friends.

You go to a show and they stare at your face.

Don’t you know? You hate your friends.

Your face is blushing and your temperature’s rising.

Drink yourself silly,

there’s no use disguising that you hate your friends.

Go!

Stare at the newspaper, nothing to say.

There’s really no use in me going away.

I think I’ll go to the drugstore today.

Maybe that chick’s working over there today.

When you got problems you can’t solve,

it’s enough to make you start to hate your friends.

You go to a show and they stare at your face.

Don’t you know?

You hate your friends.

The Lemonheads Glad I Don’t Know

I’m glad I don’t know what you been thinking lately about yours truly.

I bet I don’t know how or when I’ll fall,

or if I’ll see a movie.

I’m glad I don’t know left from wrong,

or just how far I’ll get.

I’m glad I don’t know.

I’m glad I don’t know.

You just play your tricks all day,

and run back home to bed.B5

I bet when you get there,

you just wanna get out,

wishing you were dead.

Or maybe you’re real happy,

just thrilled to break your bread.

Well installed or so enthralled,

or fuckin’ right out of your head.

I’m glad I don’t know.

I’m glad I don’t know.

I’m glad I don’t know.

Glad I don’t know.

The Lemonheads Confetti

He kinda shoulda sorta woulda loved her if he could’ve.

The story’s getting closer to the end.

He kinda shoulda sorta woulda loved her if he could’ve.

He’d rather be alone than pretend.

She just wanted him to love her but he didn’t.

He took to the woods and wandered in it.

Walked along and on until they couldn’t.

Stole himself to tell her that he wouldn’t.

He kinda shoulda sorta woulda loved her if he could’ve.

The Lemonheads Ballarat

(Dee Dee, I feel us getting together

Dee Dee, I feel us getting together

Dee Dee, I feel us getting together

Dee Dee, I feel us getting together right now)

(C’mon, let’s do it!)

Divide my head

You’re barking up the right tree

I tied my rope

Unhook me

I lay down my tracks

I make the laws here

Give me all of your fear

Give me all of your fear

I looked down the mountains

There’s a hole

There’s a tired old fountain

There’s a soul

The time draws near

Give me all of your fear

Give me all of your fear

Yeaahhhhh

I don’t have to justify myself to you

I just gotta do what I wanna do

Don’t be scared it’s just a song

Don’t be scared just to sing along

Gotta remember

Your middle finger

Unhook me

Unhook me

Unhook me

Unhook me

Unhook me

I chopped up nine homes

My god, I killed everyone

Now what?

Now what?

You’ve seen them now I’m turning in

I lay down the tracks

I make the laws here

Give me all of your fear

Give me all of your fear

The Lemonheads Favorite T

I thought we had an understanding there

that wouldn’t leave too soon

Figure it over and you’ll find out where

your green shirt’s gone

Had to hear about your Danish boyfriend

I forced a swoon

So I went over to your dresser drawer

and now I got it on

I got it on

your favourite Tee

It never looked as good on you

as it looks on me

I got it on

I’ll wait and see

I used to wear it every day

and now it’s twice a week

Fill in the shadows of a certain corner

you used to sit there

got me a brand new lamp, plugged it in

and now the dark don’t fit there

Ain’t got the time or the inclination

to see this through

I’m lookin up, climbing out of the station

and the sky’s too blue

The sky’s too blue

The sky’s too blue

It mightn’t suit me quite as well

as it used to

I got it on

Your favourite tee

I used to wear it every day…

The Lemonheads Cazzo Di Ferro

Sei proprio un grasso menefregista

Sei dal lontano il piu

coatto uomo nel mondo

Sei una testa di cazzo-

Lato di ferro

Sei una testa di cazzo

Guardo la tivu ogni pomeriggio

Quando l’accendo, vedo

un gran cazzo – l’odio e l’amo

che Dio-sei magico

Sure he’s had his share of problems,

his life has been tough

But that’s no excuse to be so fucking gruff

Mark Sanger serves him ham, though he doesn’t like pork

He’d rather eat his own shit with a knife and a fork

Basta con lo stronzo – non lo mangia, prego!

Lato di ferro – ti voglio bene

Lato di ferro, una domanda

Puoi dirmi se il tuo piatto e buono

Mi domandavo

You are really a fat person who does not give a fuck

You are by far the most coarse man in the world

You are a head of a dick, Ironside

I watch TV every afternoon

When I turn it on, I see a big dick –

I hate it and I love it

What a God – you are fabulous

Cero, lui ha un sacco di problemi, la sua vita e dura

Ma non c’e nessuna scusa essere tanto burbero

Mark Sanger gli serve prosciutto,

benche non gli piace carne di maiala

Preferirebbe mangiare il suo stronzo con un coltello ed una forchetta

Enough with the shit, don’t eat it please!

Ironside, I’m very fond of you

Ironside, a query

Can you tell me if your dish is good?

I was wondering

The Lemonheads December

I’m not keepin’ up your side of the bargain

As we all know, a woman’s will can harden

You try and soften up the blow

Still I hate to see you go

I beg your pardon

A swimming pool that used to be a garden

Get it started

Bake someone a cake and fold my heart in

Drive around the lake and roll my car in

Roll my car in

Is it time to pull my chestnuts from the fire?

Oh my my

Should I diversify or keep my powder dry

It’s early in the day

Still it’s late enough to say you were a liar

And the truth becomes more clear as I get higher

Find a buyer

Claim yourself exempt and wear a wire

Sleep around until you’re good and tired

Good and tired

Watch it bubble out of sight

Tell me psycho where’s the knife

Set your watch to ruin my life

Yeah, tell yourself you’re not my type

You’re not keepin’ up my side of the bargain

As we all know, a woman’s will can harden

Try and soften up the blow

Still I hate to see you go

I beg your pardon
