High Heeled Wheels
(music T. Verlaine, Shake Records: Hell Past & Present e.p. vinyl, 1980, o.p.)
[appears on (British) Overground over19cd: Neon Boys e.p. cd, 1991]



High on your heels, your heels are wheels
Metal will rattle
Buttery leather a whole lot better

Yes your slipper made Jack the Ripper
Melt in his belt
High heel shoes they kick the blues

Your boots so pink that I can't think
Your heels so high oh my we'll fly
We'll move so fast won't nothin catch
Our high heel wheels, our high heel wheels
We'll steer by the stars in our high heeled cars


Got your roots inside your boots
zipper goes ripper
foot to the floor we're out the door

Your boots so pink that I can't think
Your heels so high oh my we'll fly
We'll move so fast won't nothin catch
Our high heel wheels, our high heel wheels
We'll steer by the stars in our high heeled cars


See you comin, my heart starts drummin
heat to the feet
fuel starts pumpin and we start jumpin

Your boots so pink that I can't think
Your heels so high oh my we'll fly
We'll move so fast won't nothin catch
our high heel wheels, our high heel wheels
We'll steer by the stars in our high heeled cars

Love Comes in Spurts   (1st version--No relation but title to later better-known version.)
(music T. Verlaine, Shake Records: Hell Past & Present e.p. vinyl, 1980, o.p.)
[appears on (British) Overground over19cd: Neon Boys e.p. cd, 1991]



I stood and stared at her face and nothin seemed to come
And then she smiled and that look just licked me like a tongue

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts


I held her waist and her wrist and I kissed her in the hair
Forgotten love started pumpin like a fountain inside there

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts


Oh darlin love'll come pump in your soul two feet deep
Two minutes later alligators'll chew you in your sleep

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts


Oh my honey wipe the tears that streak down your cheek
And don't you think I don't care, you only do cuz you feel weak

Because love comes in spurts for sure
Though sometimes it hurts far more
You just get love in spurts, in spurts, in spurts, in spurts...

That's All I Know (Right Now)
(music T. Verlaine, Shake Records: Hell Past & Present e.p. vinyl, 1980, o.p.)
[appears on (British) Overground over19cd: Neon Boys e.p. cd, 1991]



My nerves are buzzin and my heart is gone
I think I once was different but I might be wrong
There's ghosts in the attic and bones on the wall
But it's all right I don't care at all

I'm yours, and you
You're mine and that's
That's all I know right now
That's all
That's all I know, right now


It's dark outside except for pinpoint light
Why a little gold tooth lost in a fight
I'll duck outside pick it up from the street
Stomp on it once and lay it at your feet

I'm yours, and you
You're mine and that's
That's all I know right now
That's all
That's all I know


Aw baby it's dark out there, but
Aw baby it's dark in here, but
Oh darlin I don't care, no, no


The t.v.'s up against the wall like a painting
While everybody here in the museum's fainting
Well I myself have got froth on my lips
It's delicious lady, won't you have a sip?

I'm yours, and you
You're mine and that's
That's all I know right now
That's all
That's all I know, right now

I'm yours, and you
You're mine and that's
That's all I know right now
That's all
That's all I know, right now
