Toni Basil Over My Head

You better look out cause

Suspicious eyes are watching

Don’t let them see us [?]

I know that you and I

Should not be seen here talking

I kinda like the razor’s edge

I always [?]

You like to walk a tight rope

I work my show without a net

It never fails, I dive

Into the deepest ocean

Not knowing if I’ll sink or swim

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

We’re always meeting in the dark

It’s hard to see you

I’ll feel my way

I’ll take a chance

Risking exposure

Every time I come to meet you

I’m [?] lady luck again

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

I got a feeling

This time I can’t take it

You’ll play it again

In a place for real

Although I’m falling

So fast already

I’m deeper than I should be

I’m over my head

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, I’m over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

I’m over my head

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh

Oh, oh, over my head, oh, oh…

Toni Basil Street Beat

One…two…three…four!

Foot out the door, I am not a toy

Shoot your rocket outer space

Blast me to the void

I don’t need him, time to move my feet.

Lips are on and they’re so red

Everything must move ahead

Move on baby desperate

Kickin’ like a majorette.

[Refrain:]

(Oh, did she beat him or knock him off the streets, she go)

[Repeat]

[Chorus:]

Street beat, she goes walkin’ down the street

Street beat, she just knocks them off their feet

Street beat, she goes walkin’ out the door

Street beat, she don’t want him anymore.

Too many fools, makin’ that response

Girl on the string, give him what he wants

I don’t need him anymore

To keep me through the shock.

When a person comes today

Tell my man I moved away

When the dog works for his food

Beat them with your attitude.

[Repeat Refrain & Chorus]

[Instrumental]

[Bridge:]

She’s got that street beat

[Repeat 4X with Refrain as counterpoint]

Night on the town, runnin’ with the girls

Now that I am free again, it’s such a diff’rent world

Fifty eighth or third, fashion’s right for me.

Shootin’ by a crowded bar

Lowriders in souped-up cars

Don’t throw kisses out the door

‘Cause I’m the one who’s keepin’ score.

[Repeat Refrain & Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus with Refrain as counterpoint]

(She don’t want him anymore)

[Repeat 4X with Refrain as counterpoint]

Stay dry in rubber boots and

Be stiff b-abies be stiff

Bend over fixed to shoot and

Be stiff b-abies be stiff

Breath hard in metal suits now

Live right make lots of loot and be stiff!

Be stiff b-abies be stiff

Wet women waste your food

Go solo no no two’s and

Be stiff b-abies be stiff

Watch out for fruits and mutes

Deep sleepers jerk the root so

Be stiff b-abies be stiff

Breath hard in metal suits now

Live right make lots of loot and be stiff!

Toni Basil You Gotta Problem

Pity you,

you’re telling me you gotta problem,

a nasty kind of reaction,

a dangerous sword of destruction.

That makes it difficult,

makes it hard to reach

takes it all away,

from what you had in mind.

Yeah yeah yeah

But there’s one big fat point

that you seem to be missing.

and it’s driving you to distraction,

but doesn’t seem to stop you in the least,

or halt this obsession that’s got you going back,

Week after week, (week after week)

day after day, (day after day)

hour after hour, (hour after hour)

from where you can

from more the same

yeah yeah yeah.

Toni Basil Suspense

It’s 11:28

Hollywood and Vine, that’s where he said to be

He’s forty minutes late

Did they get to him before he got to me?

Maybe this is him slipping out of the shadow

I wanna run but now his hand’s on my shoulder

Oh, oh

Suspense

Tangled up in a mystery

‘Cause I love the chill

The thrill of living dangerously

I live for suspense

I love the rush of adrenaline

Oh, life is never humdrum

There’s always some suspense

It’s just a false alarm

Huh! Nothing but a bum who wants a cigarette

That tattoo on his arm

I recognized his symbols, how could I forget?

I was sure they got him back in Vienna

Suddenly the puzzle’s coming together

Oh, oh

Suspense

Tangled up in a mystery

‘Cause I love the chill

The thrill of living dangerously

I live for suspense

I love the rush of adrenaline

Oh, life is never humdrum

There’s always some suspense

I was sure they got him back in Vienna

Suddenly the puzzle’s coming together

Oh, oh

Suspense

I’m tangled up in a mystery

‘Cause I love the chill

The thrill of living dangerously

I live for suspense

I love the rush of adrenaline

Oh, life is never humdrum

There’s always some suspense

Tangled up in a mystery

Suspense (suspense)

The thrill of living dangerously

Suspense (suspense)

I’m tangled up in a mystery

Suspense (suspense)

The thrill of living dangerously…

Toni Basil Little Red Book

I just got out my little red book

The minute that you said goodbye

I thumbed right through my little red book

I wasn’t gonna sit and cry

And I went from A to Z

I took out every pretty girl in town

They danced with me and as I held them

All I did was talk about you

Hear your name and I’d start to cry

There’s just no getting over you… oh, no…

There ain’t no girl in my little red book

Who could ever replace your charms

And each girl in my little red book

Knows you’re the one I’m thinkin’ of

Oh won’t you please come back

Without your precious love I can’t go on

Where can love be I need you so much

All I did was talk about you

Hear your name and I’d start to cry

There’s just no getting over you… oh, no…

Oh won’t you please come back

Without your precious love I can’t go on

It’s haunting me I need you so much

All I did was talk and talk about you

Hear your name and I’d start to cry

There’s just no getting over you

All I did was talk and talk about you

Hear your name and I’d start to cry

There’s just no getting over you… oh no

Toni Basil Space Girls

Space girls are as cold as ice

They’ll kiss you once and kiss you twice

You’ll shiver and shake and then turn blue

Next you got the space girl blues

I want your mechanism

Give me your mechanism

Space girls always smoke for taste

Swallow butts and leave no waste

Sado-maso is the rule

You want them they don’t want you

Just to show that they don’t care

They’ll bite your face and burn the hair

The sun comes up the moon boo-hoos

Next you got the spacegirl blues

I need your mechanism

Destroy your mechanism

Destroy it!!
