Track Name: GOOD FAMILY
GOOD FAMILY ~ Sluggo Jan 2019


I nailed one foot to the ground
And chased it round with the other.
Then put my fist right through the wall
And apologized to my mother

The left light’s dim, the right one’s bright
That damn truck’s been following me all night
The man on the corner is yelling flower puke five
Oversight committee is coming alive


I come from a good family
But I developed individually
In ways
That just, just aren’t right.
No they just, just aren’t

I’ve got a head that’s bigger than a horse
If you like wrenches, you’ll like umbrellas of course.
You can play the violin or you can be a plumber
I wanna fly upside down this summer


I come from a good family
But I developed individually
In ways
That just, just aren’t right.
No they just, just aren’t

So why can't you just straighten up and fly right?
Save us all the trouble of peeing on your grave
Save us all the trouble of peeing on your grave
Save us all the trouble…

I’m throwing out the family heirlooms
Tossing them out the back door
While my blood, it is spilling
All over your kitchen floor
Track Name: STOLE AWAY
STOLE AWAY ~ Sluggo December 2018

My life keeps thumping
Jumping all around
I just cannot seem
To settle down

I've been to Boston
I've been to Austin
I've been up in
Anchorage too

I've played Cleveland
I've played in Memphis
But there was only
Two people there

But it's alright, It's OK
'Cos I saw a car burn
Before I stole away

You saw it coming
And I saw it go
We left everything
Buried in the snow

And it don't matter
That they think they won
I say fuck everythin
And run

But it's alright, It's OK
You could hear me laughing
As I stole away

Well, I'm not scared
Nor am I dumb
But sometimes its better
To just fuck everything...and run

Run run run run
Come on babe, run away with me
We can hop a train, going out west
I can wear my hat and you can wear a vest

Run run run run
Come on babe, run away with me
We can jump a train, heading out west
You can wear your hat and I think I’ll wear a dress.
Track Name: UNION SQUARE
UNION SQUARE ~Tom Waits (1985 Jalma Music, ASCAP)

Well, time is always money,
For the boys on Union Square.
You can bust your ass 'till doomsday baby,
Jus’ don't forget to say your prayers.
Someone's got a wad on the backstreet,
Sluggo got a brand new stack.
Your baby is handcuffed on the front seat,
Yeah, you just sit right there and relax.
Aw c'mon, honey...

We're all going down, down…
We're going down, down-town,
We're all going down, down,
We're going down, down-town,

Well, they spill out of Cinema 14,
To that drag bar there on the block.
They got the best live show in the whole East Coast,
With a bank rolled up in your sock.
She stand right there for your pleasure,
Half Puerto Rican Chinese.
You got to find your baby somebody to measure,
I'm going to get me some of these.
C'mon honey, do you hear what I'm doing now?

We're all going down, down…
We're going down, down-town,
We're all going down, down,
We're going down, down-town,

S O L O

Four in the morning on a Sunday,
Sacco drinking whiskey in church.
Half pint of festival brandy,
That boys about to fall…off his perch.
Well, that guy in the sweater's off duty,
Out in front of the welfare hotel.
The guy in the dress is a beauty;
Go all the way, I swear you never can tell.
C'mon honey and pull up your socks.

I feel like a peanut butter & loser sandwich!
They say if you never aim, you’ll never miss…but
I’m gonna get Elvis Presley’s gun and shoot the television outta your soul!
