Rock Star (Rod Hodges, Joe Cabral)

‘57 Stratocaster, fifty bucks
That’s all I’m asking bro’ - down on my luck
Brand new cassette deck, still in the box
Swear on the Bilble, it ain’t hot

I’m a rock star
I’m feeling good
Rockin’ around my neighborhood

Eighty year old lady, she’s on the ground
Can’t keep from rockin’ when I’m around
Windows in my ride are all busted out
Everybody’s rockin’ - what’s it all about

Rock star
I’m feeling good
Rockin’ around my neighborhood

I’m so cool baby I’m so hip
Dang bro’ just burned my lip
Got no understanding, got no respect
Got a brand new power drill, some cassettes

Rock star
I’m feeling good
Rockin’ around my neighborhood

Smoked my brains I can hardly talk
I’m gonna get a little piece of the rock
Rockin’ in the morning, rockin’ at night
Just like a big chief smokin’ my peace pipe

Rock star
I’m feeling good
Rockin’ around my neighborhood

[repeat chorus]

I Moved Too Slow (Rod Hodges, Joe Cabral)

If you ever change your mind
Baby I wanna be first in line
And if you have a change of plans
Honey I’m gonna do all I can for you
Oo-oo

I moved too slow
I took my time
I should’ve let you know
But I moved too slow

I thought that I had time to spare
To show you how much I really cared
Then one night when you’d had enough
You turned around and you fell in love
Whoa-oa

I moved too slow
I took my time
I should’ve let you know
But I moved too slow

I thought that I had time to spare
To show you how much I really cared
Then one night when you’d had enough
You turned around and you fell in love
Oo-oo

I moved too slow
I took my time
I should’ve let you know
But I moved too slow
I moved too slow
I moved too slow

If you ever change your mind
Honey I wanna be first in line

Lupita (Rod Hodges, Joe Cabral)

When I got home yesterday
Lupita said to me
I have found a brand new love
It’s over, can’t you see

When I got home yesterday
I got a big surprise
Lupita she took all my things
And threw it all outside

Que sera de mi
Que sera de mi
Que sera de mi Lupita
Que sera de mi

Lupita, Lupita
What more can I say
Lupita, Lupita
Ay perdoname

Que sera de mi
Que sera de mi
Que sera de mi Lupita
Que sera de mi

[repeat chorus]

Benny's Cadillac (Rod Hodges, Joe Cabral)

They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac
They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac
It don’t look like he’ll ever get ‘em back
They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac

One night at the Maple Leaf
Benny came in for a drink
With a care-free smile upon his face
Everybody was glad to see him in the place
Benny had a lady by his side
Not a worry in the world that fateful night
So we all asked him to sing a song
Then everybody sang along

Na na na nana na
Na na na nana na
Na na na nana na
Na na na na nana

With a wink Benny said I’ve got to go
Into the street where the night winds blow
Just when we thought he was gone
Into the night cruisin’ along
In the flash of an eye he was back
They took the wheels off my Cadillac

They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac
They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac
It don’t look like he’ll ever get ‘em back
They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac

I didn’t have time to put my key in the lock
I saw my ride sittin’ up on blocks

They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac
They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac
It don’t look like he’ll ever get ‘em back
They took the wheels off of Benny’s Cadillac

[repeat chorus]

Don't Blame Me (Rod Hodges, Joe Cabral)

Don’t blame me for your misery
Baby don’t blame me
You say your life is harder than it needs to be
Baby don’t blame me

You say it’s all my fault our love came to a hault
Baby don’t blame me
More of you excuses for you to keep on using
Baby don’t blame me

Don’t blame me for your misery
Baby don’t blame me
You say your life is harder than it needs to be
Baby don’t blame me

You say I’m always wrong I say that’s the same old song
Baby don’t blame me
I know I did my part but you broke us apart
Baby don’t blame me

Don’t blame me for your misery
Baby don’t blame me
You say your life is harder than it needs to be
Baby don’t blame me
You say your life is harder than it needs to be
Baby don’t blame me

Que Tristeza (René Coman, Rod Hodges)

So Tired (Rod Hodges, Joe Cabral)

You tell me that you’re leaving
You say that I’m no good
You tell me to respect myself
Well baby I wish that I could

I’m tired
I’m soooooo tired

You say that I don’t give you
Everything you need
You drove a dagger through my heart
But I’m too hard to bleed

I’m tired
I’m soooooo tired

If you stay, we’re gonna fuss and fight
If you go, I’m gonna lie awake all night
And I’m tired

[repeat chorus]

You say that I’m to blame, the cause of all your ills
Baby you’ve got me so drug out like I’m on prescription pills

I’m tired
I’m soooooo tired

I’m soooooo tired [four times]

Is This Love? (Joe Cabral, Rod Hodges)

I walk the streets in this old town
Seen a lot of my blues come tumbling down
Sad are the things that I have seen
Not as sad as this love between you and me

Is this love?
This lonely love
Is this love?
Sad and lonely love

[repeat chorus]

The Mississippi River runs deep and slow
To the Gulf of Mexico
Like this love between you and me
So dark and muddy I can hardly see

Is this love?
This lonely love
Is this love?
Sad and lonely love

[repeat chorus]

Your hateful words cut to the bone
Like an arrowhead cut from stone
It’s sad but it’s pretty like New Orleans
I hate to see it come apart at the seams

Is this love?
This lonely love
Is this love?
Sad and lonely love

[repeat chorus three times]

Help Myself (René Coman)

You know I saw you last night
When you walked in the door
I wasn’t looking to fight
Nothing worth fighting for

I laid awake until dawn
Till my dreams took affect
Too late to run to the store
Smoked my last cigarette

‘Cause if I can’t help myself
No, if I can’t help myself
And if I can’t help myself
Nobody can
No, nobody can
No, nobody can

The sun darkens my face
The light cuts at my eyes
So I pulled down my shade
As I’m shakin’ inside

I try to manage a smile
To forgive and forget
I only manage to light
Another cigarette

‘Cause if I can’t help myself
No, if I can’t help myself
And if I can’t help myself
Nobody can
No, nobody can
No, nobody can

[repeat chorus]

Mil Demonios (Joe Cabral, Rod Hodges)

Ignorance is Bliss (Rod Hodges)

Something tells me
Something don’t feel right
Something tells me that your silence is a lie

Something tells me
I will shed a tear
Something tells me something I didn’t need to hear

Something tells me
Words you wouldn’t say
Something tells me it will be a lonely day

Something tells me
I can’t pretend
Something tells me that I’m about to lose a friend

They say ignorance is bliss
So tell me I’m the only one you’ve kissed

If your words
Are sweet enough to me
I’ll believe all kinds of crazy things

And if you say
The words I need to hear
I will always hold you near

They say ignorance is bliss
So tell me I’m the only one you’ve kissed

[repeat chorus]

It All Came Down (René Coman)

Well I think I know, yeah, I guess I know
When I see you with your make-up runnin’ down
Why I feel this way why I face each day
Hoping you might want to go another round
But I guess you don’t and it hurts to love you so

As it all came down
So hard
It all came down
I hit the ground
When it all came down

I don’t feel too bright sittin’ up all night
Trying to find the words to make you stay
As I lay in bed your voice echos through my head
Saying sorry boy, I’ve got to break away
Now I wait all day just to see you walk away

As it all came down
So hard
It all came down
I hit the ground
As it all came down

Now I wait all day just to watch you walk away

As it all came down
So hard
It all came down
I hit the ground
As it all came down
So hard
It all came down
I hit the ground
As it all came down

it all came down
it all came down
it all came down
