Track Name: Betty Beat the Devil
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)
Track Name: Charnice and Her Spawn
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
Track Name: Golden Blade of Love
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
Track Name: Her Heart
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
Track Name: Sad Memoir
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
