Who's the fairest who's the fairest one around Could it be my baby when she lays her body down Who's the brightest brightest headlight shining Got to be my sweet woman behind the wheel in a midnight rain driving She holds on she holds on to what she's got She knows who she is and what she is not When she's dreaming dreaming about the end of time I pull her from the water forever to be mine She holds on she holds on to what we've got She knows who she is and what she is not When she's dreaming dreaming about the end of time I will pull her from the water forever to be mine

There’s one thing I can’t deny As I gaze into your beady eyes Baby this should come as no surprise I am dreaming of your demise Birds singing out in the park Sun is shinin’ I’m on a lark You appear and it all goes dark I am dreaming of your demise You are my diabolical baby---(and I’m startin’ to think) Your sordid ways are making me crazy---(drivin’ me to drink) You call me your sweetie pie I’m the rotten apple of your eye When you spout those nasty lies I dream about your demise You’re skatin’ on real thin ice Fool me once, there won’t be a twice I might need some legal advice I am dreaming of your demise Take all your baggage back to Las Vegas I’ll take the kids and most of your wages Sayonara, it’s been nice Livin’ in fool’s paradise Cyanide could make things right I’m dreaming of your demise

Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you I want to look you up, baby Well, high and low I want to raise up your shirt See where them tattoos go... Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you First saw you, baby, a long, long time ago First saw you, baby, a long, long time ago But now when I see you, well, you sure look good Better than you know that you ought to should Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you Baby, baby, don’t you throw no snakes-eyes on me Baby, baby, don’t you throw no snake-eyes on me ‘Cause you never know when this feeling comes again And I would sure like to be your friend Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you Mirror, mirror, on the wall Tell me, who’s the jiving-est one of all? Who’s the one with the glint in her eye Just checking you out as you walk on by? Hmmm... I believe I got my eye on you Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you I want to look you up, baby Well, high and low I want to raise up your shirt See where them tattoos go... Seeing is believing, I believe I got my eye on you

The barn is burning In the back yard It’s Getting hard to see I went back home Just To find you gone and the Ashes covered me are you free – are you free – are you free In your mind -Don’t you worry about me buddy I’m just swimming in turpentine You built a tower then you Pushed it over Took so long to see All your friends they pulled you in You’re Such a casualty Go away From my mind So don’t worry about me buddy I’m just swimming in turpentine Help me back up before I lose my way Turn me over don’t leave me where I lay Time is just a lie and you will soon be mine But for now I’ll be swimming down here all alone In this turpentine You Paint your story with your shadows See it your own way falling down just to find the ground find me where I lay Spinning round to read the signs Don’t you worry about me any more I’m just swimming in turpentine Turpentine Turpentine

Hand me my pistol woman, just hold it down, I’ve got to take care of things on the other side of town. I’m seeing red woman but I feel the same, I’m going to take care of things in my own way. Come on…Come on…Come on…Come on Just got off work now, just got paid my check. Thousand dollars on my mind, but I didn’t see bad Bill behind, Now hit me on by back with a mean old Thirty-eight’. Knocked me down and he knocked me cold but I saw him run away. I’m seeing red woman but I feel the same, I’m going to take care of things, in my own way. Come on…Come on…Come on…Come on I never killed a man and I don’t intend to now, Well I get my money back I’m gonna’ get it some how I’m seeing red woman but please don’t complain, I’m going to take care of things, in my own way. Come on…Come on…Come on…Come on

Lord above, devil below Each call out my name So do you my angel babe Billy it’s time to lay Tallest pine, brightest star One day will be gone Do not grieve for all you see Or woe this flesh and bone A day from now, a thousand years What of this remains What is life in the final hour Dust will write my name Lord above, devil below Each call out my name So do you my angel babe Billy it’s time to lay
