Track Name: Half Past None
Get ready, its the boy about town
If I liked you before, i'm so over you now
Once broken its harder to mend and
as soon as you loose it, it's not found again
If patients is a virtue, and some say its true
I've just grown tired of all the waiting for you
 
Now you know how it is, the waiting feels like years
Time after time, coz I feel like rocking instead of tears  
 
Half-past-none, you're just a little late
There's always the right time, there's always delayed
Half-past-none, you see that we're through
Coz time waits for no man, especially you

Don't say I’m sorry. It's just more of the same
Is it ever your fault or shall I just take the blame
Just leave now, because the battle is won
I favour my company its double the fun
 
Oh oh, sun shines on the new dawn
One by one, get set for the calm before the storm

Half-past-none, you're just a little late
There's always the right time, there's always delayed
Half-past-none, you see that we're through
Coz time waits for no man, especially you
 
Never be lonely again, never be lonely get down down down down..

Now you know how it is, the waiting feels like years
Time after time coz I feel like rocking instead of tears  
 
Half-past-none, you're just a little late
There's always the right time there's always delayed
Half-past-none, you see that we're through
Coz time waits for no man, especially you
Half Past None, It's just a twist of fate
There's always the right time, there always too late
Track Name: The Heavenly Bop
Sex and drugs and bass lines, you really don’t wanna waste mine
So take a pinch of waistline, and the song comes back to you
Get-up on and rave now, you're coming on all lame now
Careful of what you say now, when the fat boys bust a move.

Down shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop. Shake it down, shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop

Streets with disco caviar. A face like that will go far
The action call to jive bomb. You'll find us on the roof
A dot comes on your radar, sure you don’t wanna lay down
It don’t take much to weigh now, so here’s what we're gonna do

The mercury is rising, oh but it’s so surprising
You're just now realizing, The Fontanas are good for you
The crystal lights are shining, the volume keeps on climbing
We don't need reminding, we know just what to do..

Down shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop. Shake it down, shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop
Track Name: No Common Number
Oh dontcha gimme the hump
It don't take a miracle to get the sum
So, oh dontcha gimme the hump, it's no common number with me

Last call for the pick up line
That’s enough already of the me, all mine
It don't take a miracle to toe the line, it's no common number with me

The look in your eyes is all i see
The look in your eyes is ecstasy
All that I need, is sat here with me
It’s getting harder and harder and harder to breath

Oh oh, last call for the pick up line
Oh oh, it's no common number with me
Track Name: Jose Correira [Free Download]
Seven days, on the run, heat burns, chasing shadows in the desert sun
Breaking free out of town, a local hero but the marshal wants to shut him down

Man of the people, hero of his time
Making all the difference, his life was paid in kind
Tried to make it all the better, tried to make it all stand up for you

Jose, never made it to his old age
But he lives forever most folks say
But he did it for the people of the coal face
Told the judge no way, never got a court case
Yer, and all the ladies miss him. Men tell his tale to their children
They say you can see his face through a sandstorm
The legend of Jose Correira lives on

Jose Correira, Jose Correira

A young gun its understood
Take from the greedy and it turns into a form of good
With his life he walked the line,
They left him hanging but compassion was his only crime

Man of the people, hero of his time
Making all the difference, his life was paid in kind
Tried to make it all the better, tried to make it all stand up for you

Jose Correira, Jose Correira
Track Name: Le Skank (On Haunted Hill)
Coz you know, i'll never go that road again
Coz you know, i'll never call those times a friend
No roads open, here I go again
Do right ever, never been the same

If you go you’ll feel the chills run down your spine
And you'll feel the rhythm, as the bass drum kicks real fine
Lately things aren't feeling the same
Do right lately, seems i’m gone again

Easy to seduce you, hypno-romance
The Skank is gonna take you make you wanna dance
No hocus-pocus, they’re drawing your focus
You’ll leave it all behind
Track Name: For What It's Worth
You gotta shizzle on your dizzle
You’re just going through a different phase
Why don’t you give it up a little?
Some things just rearrange
If you move in to the middle
You don’t give none away
Sit back on that, relax on track, coz I got something to say

Last call for the pick up line
That’s enough already of the me-all-mine
In life some things just pass and fade away
We’re only flesh and blood, but I still feel the best of love
Lets try before it all gets washed away

For What It’s worth, I never promised you a sanctuary
For What It’s worth, I never wanted this you see
For What It’s worth, oh do we have to take it down, down, down
Oh Lord, that’s the last you’ll see of me

Why don’t you give it up a little coz you’re acting like a p.i.g
Just breaking up the riddle, it don’t make sense to me
Won’t you move in to the middle?
You don’t give none-away
Sit back on that relax on track coz I got something to say

Last call for the pick up line
That’s enough already of the me-all-mine
In life some things just pass and fade away
We’re only flesh and blood, but I still feel the best of love
Lets try before it all gets washed away

For What It’s worth, I never promised you a sanctuary
For What It’s worth, I never wanted this you see
For What It’s worth, oh do we have to take it down, down, down
Oh Lord, that’s the last you’ll see of me

Oh dontcha gimme the hump

So, oh dontcha gimme the hump, it's no common number with me

Last call for the pick up line

It don't take a miracle to toe the line, it's no common number with me

The look in your eyes is all i see
The look in your eyes is ecstasy

It’s getting harder and harder and harder to breath
