Personality Crisis

Personality Crisis

Well we can't take it this week
And her friends don't want another speach
Hoping for a better day to hear what she's got to say

All about that
Personality Crisis you got it while it was hot
But now frustration and heartache is what you got
(That's why they talk about Personality)

But now your tryin to be some no you got to do some
Wanna be someone who cow wow wows
But you think about the times you did they took every ounce
When it sure got to be a shame when you start to scream and shout
You got to contradict all those times you were butterflyin about

(You were butterflyin)
All about that Personality Crisis you got it while it was hot
But now frustration and heartache is what you got
break

And your a prima ballerina on a spring afternoon
Change on into the wolfman howlin at the moon hooowww

All about that Personality Crisis you got it while it was hot
But now frustration and heartache is what you got

Now with all the crossin fingers that mother nature says
Your mirrors get jammed up with all your friends

That personality everything starts to blend
Personality when your mind starts to blend
Personality impression of a friend,
Of a friend, of a friend, of a friend, of a friend
Personality wonderin how celebrities ever met
(Look and find out on television)

Personality Crisis you got it while it was hot
Frustration and heartache is all you got, don't you worry
Personality Crisis please don't cry
It's just a Personality Crisis, please don't stop

Because you walk a Personality
Talk a Personality

Looking for a Kiss

Looking For A Kiss

I always seen you, just before the dawn
When all the other kids, where just draggin along
I couldn't believe the way it seemed to be
Rememberin the things, you used to say to me

(About...)
You know I can't be wastin time
Cus gotta get my fun

Cant stop til it's all done

Cus I just gotta make it, cant afford to miss
And there's one reason, I'm tellin you this
I feels bad....
And I'm looking for a kiss

Why wontcha tell me, why those kids are moving so slow
Is it just because they dont have no place to go
When the day starts breakin, the sun is gonna shine
It's hard to sleep, when I been cryin

(And...)
All you ladies are on
Your way to church
(I'm beggin)

And I'm looking for a kiss

Well I been lookin for a real hot kiss...

You think it's bad, but you know that its true
So why don't let me live baby
When I'm lookin for a kiss
When everyone's going to your house, they shoot up in your room
Most of them are beautiful, but so obsessed with gloom

I aint gonna be here, when they all get home
They're always lookin at me, they wont leave me alone
I didnt come here, lookin for no fix
(I know...)
I been houndin the street all night late baby
Justa looking for a kiss

Just looking for a kiss

Vietnamese Baby

Vietnamese Baby

When I'm getting home to you
I gotta show you what I can do
But everything connects and that ain't nowhere
Well, but maybe they're just giving you all you've ever wanted
And maybe you never ever know what that was
And maybe you're just finding it out now
With a Vietnamese baby on your mind

Technology satellite, well

Everyone so busy they've forgotten why they're playing

Your pretty little mind

Catch me your slaves, shot at
Every riffle on the way and I gotta
Show you more mustard gas than any girl ever seen
Since I been blasted, I've been blown, I've been backing away

But I've got a concert out to play
With a Vietnamese baby on your mind
Your pretty little mind
Your pretty little mind

Frankenstein

Frankenstein 

Something must have happened over Manhattan
Who can expound all the children this time
Could they ever, could they ever
Expect such a Frankenstein, Frankenstein
I remember when you were jammin'
You worked at 'em and any of them
There was never nothing you would ever understand
But you know who was there to be your master
Making his demands and plans
As though he's making his friends
And when those plans they don't mix your style
You get a feeling of your own ordeal
That's when he starts calling you, wow
Bud, you just don't know what to do
So now you come around here
And you're trying to take over the town
Just because of back home, baby
Oh, he puts you down
Oh, baby, how he puts you down
I know they put you down

So now, you're off starting 'round here
Here you ask and demand
In a place where they don't expect nothing
You're trying not to dirty your hands
When asking you as a person
Is it a crime, is it a crime
For you to fall in love with Frankenstein
Is it wrong, could it be wrong
Wrong, baby, don't you want a friend
Cause you're trying to be so selective
You never realize the whole time
Who's the one you're loving
Misunderstood like a Frankenstein
And down, down, down, just go just down
Like Frankenstein, like Frankenstein

So now you're telling me
What everytime you can get down home
Well don't you know there's place, it is my home
So where am I gonna go
You know, when you don't expect nothing
You know, when you're not alone, you know you're not alone
Cause something must have happened over Manhattan
Who can expound all the children this time
Could you ever, could you ever
Expect such a Frankenstein, Frankenstein, Frankenstein

And all this shoes are too big
And house jacket's too small
How you don't know Frankenstein, a Frankenstein
We're asking yu as a person
Is it a crime, is it a crime
For you to fall in love in with Frankenstein
Wrong, could it be wrong
Baby, don't you want a friend
Well, Frankenstein, oh, Frankenstein, Frankenstein
You're gonna get it, you're gonna get it
You're gonna get it, from Frankenstein
That's what I'm gonna shout about
Gonna scream about, I'm gonna shout about, scream about
Scream about, shout about a Frankenstein
Frankenstein, Frankenstein, Frankenstein

I've gotta ask you one question
Do you think that you could make it with Frankenstein?

Stranded in the Jungle

Stranded In The Jungle

Well Im stranded in the jungle, Im trying to get a date
With my little girl that was back in the States
I was stranded in the jungle, afraid, alone
wondered how I could get a message back home
But how was I to know that the wreckage of my plane
Had been picked up and spotted and my girl in Lover's Lane

Meanwhile, back in the States

Baby, baby, let's make romance
I says your old-time lover hasn't got a chance
I says He's stranded in the jungle, sad as he can be
So come on pretty baby, just you and me, Oh Yeah

Meanwhile, back in the jungle

Well the boys in the jungle had me on the run
When something heavy hit me like an atomic bomb
I woke up kinda slow and my head started to clear
I had a strange feeling I was cooking gear
I smelled something cooking I looked around to see
That's when I found out they was a-cookin' me
Ooga booga, lemme outta here!

Meanwhile, back in the States

Baby, baby, let's make romance
I said your old-time lover hasn't got a chance
I said He's stranded in the jungle sad as he can be
Come on pretty darling just you and me, oh yeah

Meanwhile, back in the jungle

Well I jumped out the pot, I finally got away
So panic and worried about what my baby would say
So I jumped in the ocean and started to swim
But my chance of survival was gettin' mighty slim
So I thumbed down a whale that was passing my way
And I reached the States in about half a day
When I got to Lover's Lane my soul dead
My heart was gone, and here is what he said

Baby, baby, the man's no good
I said Baby, baby, should have understood
I said you can trust me for as long as you please
So come back pretty darling just a you and me
Cause I love you
Cause I love you
Cause I love you
Cause I love you
