Betty Beat the Devil She slinks along the alleys of this two-bit one-horse town A lady of scorn and derision but she's nobody's clown She's taken on the best they've had and laid those suckers flat In a car or in a bar or on a wrestling mat (Bridge) Last night she had her hands full Pardon tunge in cheek Last night she almost went down To that pitchforked freak (Chorus) Betty beat the devil  Last night! Betty beat the devil It was a fight! Betty beat the devil No pretend! But - she - do - it again?...... She stumbles down the sidewalk just a little worse for wear Her shoulders bruised, her lips are blue, her stockings full of tears She don't want no re-match she's lucky to be alive She won by split decision and that ain't no trumped up jive (Bridge) Last night she had her hands full Pardon tunge in cheek Last night she almost went down To that pitchforked freak (Chorus) Betty beat the devil  Last night! Betty beat the devil It was a fight! Betty beat the devil No pretend! But - she - do - it again?...... Betty beat the devil (4x’s)

Charnice and Her Spawn How many souls have you chewed up and spit upon the ground? How many lies have you told as you burned down the town? You killed me a long time ago But still I go on and on All the blame for my misery Goes to Charnice and her spawn How many children can you eat and throw away the bones? How many stray dogs can you kick until they all go home? Don't come in here with your sexy smiles And don't walk on the lawn All the blame for my misery Goes to Charnice and her spawn Bridge--How many licks will it take until you get your fill?             How man dumb-ass guys in love will you have to kill?             Don't come in here with your slinky walk             Like a female Don Juan             All the blame for my misery             Goes to Charnice and her spawn How many spiders can you crush upon your mother's floor? How much evil can you do before you crave some more? You killed me a long time ago But still I go on and on All the blame for my misery Goes to Charnice and her spawn

Golden Blade of Love Flowers on the wallpaper Fire detector above The night light shining in my eye Like the golden blade of love I hear her sigh as she slips Contentment in her dreams The radio is playing soft a remixed song by Cream Oh the golden blade of love Takes another victim but there’s no blood Oh the golden blade of love Like a flash in the night Oh the golden blade of love Takes another victim but there’s no blood Oh the golden blade of love Like a flash in the night Before the dawn of morning Before she opens her eyes She’ll reach out to touch me And realize all my lies I won’t be there I’ll be on a plane somewhere That’s just the way I roll Love them leave them I don’t care That’s the way it goes Oh the golden blade of love Takes another victim but there’s no blood Oh the golden blade of love Like a flash in the night Oh the golden blade of love Takes another victim but there’s no blood Oh the golden blade of love Like a flash in the night

Her Heart 04:21
Her Heart's Been Broken in a Million Ways Sting of pain runs down like blood Tears do flow like a rolling flood Dreams and plans fall to decay Her heart's been broken in a million ways The stains of time will not recall  Just where love stumbled before the fall The strain of like then the walls gave way Her heart's been broken in a million ways Candy-ass boys call her cell She tells them to go straight to hell Caught on live TV reality I know it well I know it well Lust or love the choice's not clear Hang on tight nothing to fear Treetop monkeys swinging this way Her hearts been broken in a million ways Candy-ass boys call her cell She tells them to go straight to hell Caught on live TV reality I know it well I know it well

Sad Memoir 05:41
Sad Memoir I don't wanna think about How she let me down I dont wanna think about How the news got all over town I dont wanna talk about  All those lonely days in May I just wanna think about My big get away Oh, and I remember all the times we had Oh, I remember all the times we had Out of my mind on you The world crumbles in Out of my universe  My world of sweet pretend Out of my lonely soul Shooting through the sky Held down by the weight of all your lies Oh, and I remember all the times we had Oh, I remember all the times we had
