LYRICS: KICK in the EYE - GARAGE SALE-BIG TIME!

1. ALL NIGHT LONG (3:10)

All night long you're talkin' 'bout me Won't you stop it stop it please

All night long you're talkin' 'bout me Won't you stop it stop it please

ll night long you're talkin' talkin' talkin' about me

You can boot and scoot you know how to shoot

But that don't impress me much

I need a boy who knows how to love who melts me with his touch

It's no use tryin' I know you're lyin' when you say you're tuff enuff.

All night long you're gawkin' at me won't you stop it stop it please

All night long you're gawkin' at me won't you stop it stop it please

All night long you're gawkin' gawkin' gawkin' over me

You can rock & roll or play it cold but that won't get you far

I need a boy who loves me the most don't care 'bout who you are

There's no use cryin' cause I ain't buyin' it ain't comin' from the heart

Why-O Why-O Why-O Me Oh-Me Oh-Me Oh-my!

Why-O Why-O Why-O Me Oh-Me Oh-Me Oh-my!

Why-O Why-O Why-O Me can't I find what I like?

Grandma knew and Mommy did too I'll tell you what I know

It's 1 part huggin' and 2 parts lovin' and 3 parts movin' slow

It's a pinch and a squeeze a kiss and a tease my recipe for good love

 

 

2. HONEY BEE (3:14)

Didn't you know that I was gonna catch on to you

You just keep on getting sweeter until I feel that little sting in your lips

CHORUS: You know I love you your kiss is like a honey bee You know I love you your kiss is like a honey bee

You know I love you but your kiss is like a honey bee's sting

Didn't you know that I was gonna catch on to you

You didn't think I'd check to see if you had a background In these kind of dealings

It's so hard to get anything done you went right to my head

It's so hard to get anything done you put a rollercoaster to my head

 

 

3. TREAT ME RIGHT (5:42)

I've been searching here and there up and down and everywhere

I've been looking for that special one that could make my heart come all undone

I once had lovin' but now it's gone She found a new man and done moved on

I can't just stay here in my room I got to find a new love soon

CHORUS: I need a woman by my side The kind of woman who'll treat me right

I need a woman by my side to treat me right

I spend my days out by the pond contemplating what went wrong

I can't just live here by myself I'm going to lose my mind and health

I've been searching in the bars gone to churches near and far

I bought some new clothes and a car Now just please tell me where you are

 

 

4. BIG WAVES (3:41)

Baby you got me hooked on you I need you quick 'Cause baby you got me hooked on you

I need that fix And I need it quick

Honey you make the honey I'm dreaming of you're everything I need

Gimme gimme gimme a taste of that sweet stuff You got me begging please you got me on my knees

CHORUS: I want to get so much of you all of the time You'll never hear me say I can't take anymore

You're a high time tidal wave I want to get that rush

'Cause I'm dead gone on you and you're teasing me too much and I need that rush

I get this pain inside and you're the only one who could make it

I feel like I'm gonna die and you're the only one who could save me

I'm ready and I'm waiting so lay it all on me please

Big Waves…

 

 

5. LET'S GO OUT AND HAVE SOME FUN (2:55)

Remember driving along and having a good time Singing a song and humming a cool line

We carried along over the state line Nothing was wrong 'cause I had you beside Can't we go have some fun like we used to?

You make me so crazy ain't felt this in a while Realised I missed you badly and now I'm gonna try

There's something in the manner in which we said goodbye Like I said before give me another try

Remember walking along the beach and coastline Making up songs and singing 'bout good times

Night time was fun the moon was our bonfire Everything's hummin' we're staying up all night

Can't we go have some fun like we used to

When I'm in I miss you I'm restless gotta ride But when I'm out without you I'm only gone a while

I searched the whole world over there's nothing there to find There's something that's a matter and that's we said goodbye

Remember holding my hand and watching a movie or seein' a band and hollerin' ooohwheee

Then back in my van a-getting' all cozy When we're alone I'm so lucky you chose me

Can't we go have some fun like we used to

 

 

6. BURNSIDED (2:59)

I don't want to talk about it - that's how I feel So don't come round here askin' on it - that's how I feel

You don't want to get me started - that's how I feel Just leave me be I'm broken hearted - that's how I feel

CHORUS: I don't want you no more baby don't want to no more I don't want you

I'll cut a few lines and roll some stoagies And get another jug of my homemade whiskey

I'm gonna get where the party's started I won't stay long broken hearted

You take my money break things and fuck me around Now I got nothin' pack up your things turn around

You don't want to be comin' round no more

 

 

7. TOO MANY WOMEN BLUES (6:37)

Gotta tell these women stop comin' around Too many women try and bring me down

Gonna ask these girls stop hangin' around These kind of women bring my reputation down

I left my baby in the other town Too many women made me fool around Out the door didn't even say bye-bye

Now these women gonna make me cry I wanna go back to my baby darlin's arms

Too many nights I was away Give me a chance I'm here to stay I'll cook and clean I'll sew your clothes

I'll give you lovin' from your head to your toes I left you baby for those kind of girls

The ones that need cadillacs and pearls I was wrong won't you forgive me babe

I can quit my cheatin' ways I wanna go back to my baby darlin's arms

Gotta tell you boys don't mess around Don't blow your money don't buy the rounds

Take my advice just stay at home It's pretty bad to be broke on your own

Too many women like to one night stand Those kind of women ain't worth it man

Get back home to your lovin' babe You can quit your cheatin' ways

You better go back to your baby darling You gotta go back to your baby darling

You want to go back to your baby darlin's arms

 

 

8. MY HOME ON THE FRASER (3:52)

I live along the mighty Fraser And there'll come a day when I must leave her But when my wife says I must leave it

I don't think that she means it She knows I ain't movin' out of my town 'Til God is ready to show me around

My best friends have always lived here Been here for tens of thousands of years

I know they'll never leave it, even though the government's seized it

I know that you can't move them off of their grounds Transformers will always be around

I still keep all the old traditions Like learnin' from my Aunt in the kitchen 'Cause I know one day she's leavin'

With those secrets that she's keepin' And I know she wants to pass them on down Before God's ready to show her around

I've always been a man (gal) of nature And the country is just so great here

I just hope we don't screw it up, 'cause if we do we're out of luck

The salmon runs can only take so much Of the muck, the bark, the slides, and the sludge

Don't want to give the wrong impression BC is still a slice of Heaven

Tell me where else can you find a trout on yer line every single time?

But in the creeks and lakes you'll find province wide And 'long the drive there's fruit and Okanagan wine

The folks out here do lots of drinkin' And smokin' what the good lord gives them

There's parties goin' down, lots of doobage goin' round It gets real hard to keep on wearin' yer frown

That's why I ain't movin' out of my town Yeah, I know a lot of musicians from Vancouver to the east of Mission

They're the best folk all around, I only wish they'd form a town

Then maybe I'd have someplace else to settle down Where I know the good lord is workin' clear and loud

 

 

9. GRAVEYARD WALTZ (4:17)

I don't want you thinking 'bout the bad things you done The times that you run I'm coming home

You were unfaithful while I was away You were lead astray it ain't your fault you played

Follow me now and don't make a sound I'll wrap you all up so you don't move around

I'll hold you so tight you'll beg for your life and pray

Before I got home my old friend I seen He explained things to me things I still can't believe

Now I won't be no fool for a dishonest wife So I brought my knife to cut out your life

Follow me down to the graveyard I'm bound I'll dig you a home so you'll never be found

Follow me down to graveyard you're bound to stay

The deed has been done now away I will ride I'll find a new bride and start a new life

Yeah, I found a new town and I changed my name But I can't forget what I did on that day

Follow me down to hell I am bound The devil is waiting to show me around

Ol' Satan is real I'll greet him on my Judgement Day

Yes, Satan is real I'll meet him on my dying day

 

 

10. WASTIN' TIME (2:36)

Don't talk it if you can't walk it don't say it if you can't play it Little cowgirl you're just wastin' time

CHORUS: Wastin' time you're wastin' time

Little baby you drive me crazy halfway to crazy baby Little cowgirl you drive me wild

Don't show it if you don't know it don't fake it if you won't make it Little cowgirl you're just wastin' time

Little baby you drive me crazy halfway to crazy baby Little cowgirl please make up your mind

You're not ready gonna take you home Can't go steady 'til you're fully grown

Sometimes love is best left alone I need a little more that you have shown

 

 

11. HOPIN' FOR SNOW (3:12)

Last night we were coming home we were hopin' it was gonna snow

And it's almost Christmas time we were heading to the Boney M. show

Gonna do lots of dancing and a little romancing We're going out partying it's a family tradition

We'll hit every bar in town we're ordering another round

Last night we were coming home we were hopin' it was gonna snow

Gonna drive my 4x4 up the deep snowy mountain We'll park under starlight see the satellites roaming

Twinklin' starlight like back in the beginning

Last night we were coming home we were hopin' it was gonna snow

Now we're heading to Vavenby up to visit our sister Denise Ted is sippin' his Souther C.

And Neice is fixing something homemade to eat She's invited the neighbours by

They all want to hear some Kick in the Eye Then we'll go for a sleigh ride and go caroling like olden times

Last night we were coming home we were hopin' it was gonna snow

 

 

12. CHRISTMAS IS COMIN' (2:55)

Christmas is coming to town so get the egg nog and The snow's falling down so grab the toboggan

We'll sled all around then down Thomson Mountain The snowball fight's on you'll get a face-washin

Let's go out and have some fun like we used to

A Merry Merry Christmas A Happy New Year We're sending out a message we're bringing good cheer

We hope you're warm and cozy while chillin' down the beer And that you're celebratin' 'cause it's that time of year

Santa is coming to town and he's almost here He's checking his list he's feeding his reindeer

You better be good and nice to each other And treat everyone like they're your sister or brother

Let's go out and have some fun like we used to

Even the Grinch who stole Christmas can have a good time Remember that story when handin' out a dime'

To the busker on the corner the bum freezin' outside Make your coins jingle with that Sally Ann chime

The Season's coming to town You waited all year for December to come now its finally here

They've decorated the streets and even the houses Ya drive all around find where the best one in town is

Let's go out and have some fun like we used to
