“No Other Love”

What Can You Tell Me (LYRICS)

I lost control on the Miracle Mile

She had big hair and an innocent smile

What can you tell me What can you tell me

They say the heart is a wheel

She made my heart a meal

What can you tell me What can you tell me

She threw our future away

the night he jumped out of the cake

What can you tell me What can you tell me

Like a kid on a jungle gym

I watched her climb all over him

What can you tell me What can you tell me

I read it in the paper

I saw your picture too

They dragged Jerome right out of bed

He swore it all was true

I been to the bottom and climbed out again

Getting postcards from people I've never met

What can you tell me What can you tell me

She locked all the doors and I couldn't get out

The preacher was preaching wihout any mouth

What can you tell me What can you tell me

Cupid, play your game Don't even bother to aim

What can you tell me What can you tell me

“Temple Beautiful”

Emperor Norton In The Last Year Of His Life (1880) (LYRICS)

Every set of keys is an original

Every silver lining is a curse

Anyone who's ever turned their back on me

Always ends up facing something worse

Something worse

Some kind of nightmare or some kind of curse

Miss Sally Rogers did a little dance for me

Warmed me up and down my crooked spine

Miss Sally Rogers, yes, she'll dance for anyone

She'll be yours as easily as mine

She'll be mine, Miss Sally Rogers never will be mine

So I said Run around, run around, run around, run around Sal

Run around, run around, run around, run around Sal

Sally run around

Last night it was snowing down on Market Street

This morning there's three bodies in the cold

All the love you're saving for a rainy day

Won't be enough to save your wretched soul

Save your soul

Won't be enough to save your wretched soul

Save your soul

Twenty years ago I saw the president

He rode a silver horse into the crowd

A hundred years ago they might have made him king

Without him brother where would we be now

White Night, Big City (LYRICS)

White night, big city, white night

White night, big city, white night

What do you know

What do you know about

What do you know

What do you know about

What went on thirty years ago?

White night, big city, white night

(Breaking the law in the great big city)

White night, big city, white night

(Breaking the law in the great big city)

What can I do

What can I do about

What can I do

What can we do about

What went on thirty years ago?

White night, big city, white night

Well he held his arms out open wide

He had enemies on every side

But a little man in a fit of rage

Shot him down, made him pay

Oh he held his arms out open wide

White night, big city, white night

White night, big city, white night

White night, big city, white night

(Breaking the law in the great big city)

White night, big city, white night

Little Girl, Little Boy (LYRICS)

Little girl, little girl, life's no fairy tale

Doctors get diseases

Criminals make bail

Little girl, little girl

Little boy, little boy, tell me something I don't know

What makes a lamp a Tiffany

What makes the flower grow

Little boy, little boy

Little boy, little boy, can you play the violin

My daddy's got a string quartet

and my heart belongs to him

Little boy, little boy

Little girl, little girl, I can tune a baby grand

My heart it sings a symphony

I'm a one-man marching band

Little girl, little girl

Little boy, Little girl

Little girl, Little boy

He Came From So Far Away (Red Man Speaks) (LYRICS)

He came from so far away, he had a telephone without a number

He came from so far away

He came from so far away, I never saw him drink a drop of water

He came from so far away

Well he told me that his mom was Ginger Rogers

And he said his old man was Fillmore Slim

And he never raised his voice above a whisper

But I leaned in to every word he said

He came from so far away, you wouldn't even know it if you saw him

He kept a picture of a pigeon in his wallet

Well I dreamed I saw him once on television

And I thought he'd melt the camera with his eyes

When they asked him why he wore a mask in public

He said This is my face, it covers my disguise

He came from so far away

Couldn't tell a cradle from a coffin

Never even owned a television

And the children, the children ran up to him, and he held them

He came from so far away...
