1.  WE'RE GONNA CRAWL
See my baby coming down the track
Bet you my baby's coming back
Someday she'll get back to me
Oh and we're gonna raise a family
We're gonna groove - yeah, groove
We're gonna groove
We're gonna love, love, love
Until the break of day
Sweet as sweet as sweet can be
You don't know what you do to me
Let me say you're my one desire
You just set my soul on fire
We're gonna groove [etc repeated]
Sweet as sweet as sweet can be
Let me tell you,
you don't know what you do to me
You just set my soul on fire
Woman you know you're my one desire
We're gonna groove [etc repeated]
2.  POOR TOM
Here's a tale of Tom, who worked the riverfront
His wife would cook his meals, as he would check the wheels
Poor Tom, seventh son, always knew what's going on
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
Worked for thirty years, sharing hopes and fears
Dreaming of the day he could turn and say
Poor Tom, work's done - lazing out in the noonday sun
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
His wife was Emmie May - many many games she played
When Tom was out of town, she couldn't keep her dresses down
Poor Tom, seventh son, always knew what's going on
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
And so it was one day, people got to Emmie May
Tom took a gun in his hand, and stopped all the running around
Poor Tom, seventh son, gotta die for what you've done
All those years of work are thrown away
To ease your mind - is that all you can say?
But what about that grandson on your knee?
And they wrote songs as long as he could be
Ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
Ain't a thing that you can hide from Tom
There ain't nothing that you can hide from Tom
Keep a-trucking - keep a-trucking
3.  I CAN'T QUIT YOU BABY
I can't quit you babe
Woman, I think I'm gonna
put you down for a little while
I can't quit you babe
I think I'm gonna
put you down for a while
I said you messed up my happy home
Made me mistreat my only child
You build my hopes so high
Baby, then you let me down so low
You - you build my hopes so high
Then you let me down so low
Don't you realise, sweet baby?
Woman, I don't know which way to go
Woman, I can't quit you babe
I think I'm gonna
put you down for a while
4.  WALTER'S WALK
Don't it feel so strange looking at the door?
Trying hard to change, but can't let go
Crying tears of pain - hurting more and more
Everyday's the same as you walk the floor
I'm walking the floor over you, I'm walking the floor
Every heart that breaks is a heart that's cold
To the hand that takes your dreamless soul
Is it long to wait? is it much too late?
Sometimes it's hard to ignore the pain
You know it's hard - I said it's hard - you know it's true
I said it's hard - you know it's hard - still know it's true
Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost
When you hear the call can you count the cost?
As you stand alone do you wonder how?
Can you step aside? does it matter now?
Every love that's shared isn't splendid for me
In the eye of the night was it hard to see?
It never fails, in spite of it all
As you fight the tears in the Walter's walk
You know it's true now, I'm walking the floor over you
I'm walking the floor
Every tear that falls is a smile that's lost
When you hear the call can you count the cost?
As you stand alone do you wonder how?
Can you step aside? Does it matter now? Does it matter now?
5.  OZONE BABY
I hear you knock on my door
I ain't been saving this thing for you, honey
Don't want you ringing my bell
It's too late for you to be my honey
Ooh, it's my love -
ooh, it's my own true love
Ooh, it's my love -
ooh, it's my own true love, my own
Don't want you wasting my time
Tired of you doing the things that you do
It's no use standing in line
Fall in line - you'd better form a queue
Ooh, it's my love [etc repeated]
I could stay on the riverfront
But I know that's just
I could wish for a million years
But I know I'm still alone
I could cry within the darkness
and sail away
I could trade a lifetime forever
To know you know -
you know what I said
Ooh, it's my love [etc repeated]
6.  DARLENE
Darlene - oh, Darlene -- Come on, baby - give me some
When I see you at that dance with your tight dress on
What you got it sure is fine - I wanna get me some
Darlene - baby Darlene - be my baby Darlene
Darlene - oh, Darlene -- Come back and be my sweet little girl
When I see you on the street, it makes my heart go flitter
I see you walkin with all those guys, it makes me feel so sad
Now I don't care what people say, And I don't care what they do
Sweet child, I gotta make you mine,
You're the only thing that I want - you!
Baby baby, when you walk down the block
See the people fight, Oh child, you know you drive me wild
I gotta do it with you - gonna try
Oh baby, I got my car - I'll take you where it's fine
I'm gonna take you every place
I'm gonna boogie-woogie-woogie-woogie - that's fine
I'm gonna prove it, Darlene, I'm gonna make ya my girl
I'm gonna boogie, Darlene, I'm gonna send you in another world
'Cause I love you, Darlene, And I love you - yes I do
I've been saving all my money, I've been working all day long
I'm gonna give it all back to you, Oh, but I love you, Darlene
Yes I love you - yes I do, I've been working in school
I've been working every day,
I've been trying to get it home to you
And I love you, Darlene, Yes I love you - I do
I got a pink carnation and a pick-up truck
I saved it, baby, all for you, Oh, I love you
8.  WEARING AND TEARING
It starts out like a murmur
And then it grows like thunder
Until it bursts inside of you
Try to hold it steady
Wait until you're ready
Any second now will do
Throw the door wide open
Not a word is spoken
Anything that you want to do
Don't you feel the same way?
Don't you feel the same way?
But you don't know what to do
No time for hesitating
Ain't no time for hesitating
All you got to do is move
They say you're feeling blue
Well, I just found a cure
It's a thing you gotta do
Well, you say your body's aching
I know that it's aching
Chill bumps come up on you
Yeah, the fun and fooling
I love the fun and fooling
Just like fooling after school
And then you ask for medication
Who cares for medication?
When you've worn away the cure
Go back to the country
Yeah, go back to the country
Feel the change is good for you
When you keep convincing
Don't keep convincing
What's that creeping up behind you?
It's just an old friend
It's just an old friend
And what's that he's got for you?
