Lyrics for "Attitude Adjuster" by Big Red Sun:

Attitude Adjuster
© Clifford A Henricksen

The first time that I saw you, I knew I was in love again
The second time I saw you, you put me in a world of pain
You bring me up, you bring me down
How was I to know that you were messing ‘round?
I need an attitude adjuster, every time you call my name

(You’ll be)
Lying on the telephone, trying to make me play the fool
Making up a story-line, thinking that you pulled the wool
You said they robbed you, and broke your arm
Don’t you think I know it was a false alarm?
I need an attitude adjuster, every time you call my name

You make believe, it makes me cry
Why don’t you see, some other guy?
Can’t understand the things you do
It’s got me wondering what is wrong with you

Don’t know why I call you, musta got a hold on me
Musta got me mesmerized, even though it’s plain to see
You trick me up, flip my brain
How was I to know you make the boy insane?
I need an attitude adjuster, every time you call my name
I need an attitude adjuster, every time you call my name


Fat Baby
© Clifford A Henricksen

Something shaking in my house today
He’s a fat little roller and he’s looking ok
His mommy really digs him and she feeds him so well
He’s a jolly roller-poler anybody can tell, he’s a
Chorus
Fat Baby, he rock and he roll
Fat Baby, he never get cold
Fat Baby, he’s a jelly-bowl
He roll just a big smile from cheek to cha-cheek
All he does is gurgle when he’s trying to speak
He say: bbbbb…(baby blubbering-talk)
Chorus
He don’t have to worry bout the crime in the street
He’s a happy little baby from his head to his feet
Just a little fussy only once in a while,
All you got to do is say “Hey FATTY!!” and he’ll give you a smile


O Calle O © Cliff Henricksen 2013

I’m just a poor boy, a gringo from Boston
Took a chance on a winter vacation, Miami bound
And I met a Chiquita from Venezuela
She said “come on, chico; I think I’m gonna show you my town”

Chorus
I’m gonna take you down to Calle-O, O Calle Ocho
I’ll take you driving, we’ll be sweet and low on O Calle O
You won’t believe it’s such a sight to see, on O Calle Ocho
Latino nation in the land of the free on o calle o

You can take Calle Ocho right out the ocean
But we stayed for a café cubano, sweet and sublime
At a Festival (fes tee val) out on the street, the music was playing
On that Miami boulevard, they’re living on salsa time

Chorus
I’m wanna tell you bout the Calle-O, O Calle Ocho
Take my advice you’re gonna want to go to O Calle O
You won’t believe it’s such a sight to see, on O Calle Ocho
Latino nation in the land of the free on o calle o


(Bridge)
Well I’m sad to say I’ll be leaving this sunshine
Headed back to Boston, to the cold and the grey
But I’m dreaming about that petit senorita
And I know in my, I’ll be returning someday”

And we’ll be back out on the calle-o, o calle ocho
Those latin melodies are gonna flow out on o calle o
They doing the rumba, the merengue too on o calle ocho
Even the reggatone be shaking you on o calle o .. Give it to me…



Mr Beautiful
© Clifford A Henricksen 1997


I’m coming to you, like a million, I’m on your radio
My opinions, are what you want to know
But if you see me, live in person, you can’t believe your eye
Irresistible, I’m such a fabulous guy
And when you see me smile, and when you check my style
You’ll know that

Everybody in the whole wide world, every fella, each and every girl
They got to love me, yes I know they do, ‘cause I’m
Mr. Beautiful, Mr. Beautiful
And when the sun goes down, I’m just the talk of the town
Everybody loves me, yes they do, ‘cause I’m
Mr. Beautiful, Mr. Beautiful

(Calling Mr. Beautiful)

Wink at the ladies, nod to the fellas, I’m always recognized
Got my name on the marquee, they’ll all be hypnotized
And when they touch my hand, they’ll surely understand, that

Everybody in the whole wide world, every fella, each and every girl
They got to love me, yes I know they do, ‘cause I’m
Mr. Beautiful, Mr. Beautiful
And when they dream at night, I’ll be their guiding light
I’ll smile and tell them “everything’s all right” , ‘cause I’m
Mr. Beautiful, Mr. Beautiful



Better Get Lonely
© 2013 Steve Greeley

She's got you where she wants and she won't let go
There's no end in sight
I know you need somebody, but you don't need that
She's made you nothing in your own eyes

You better get lonely
You better get lonely yeah
You better get lonely - you gotta go
'Cause lonely is better than the place you know

You put her on a pedestal and she puts you down
It can't be a healthy thing
To only love a girl for the way she looks
She's your queen, but you're not her king

You better get lonely
You better get lonely yeah
You better get lonely – she’s gotta go
'Cause lonely is better than the place you know

I know you're scared - because you're not prepared
To be back on your own
But there's someone better out there

Someone who'll love you
Through thick and thin
You don't need a trophy
That you can't win

You better get lonely
You better get lonely yeah
You better get lonely – she’s gotta go
'Cause lonely is better than the place you know


Little Bit Of Heaven
© 2013 Steve Greeley


Some people say there’s a master plan
But I’ve never felt that guiding hand on my own
Still there’s one thing I understand:
Love should be our command – hey, Hallelujah

Hey, yeah, sing Hallelujah!
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah…
Bring a little bit of heaven right here on earth

Everything counts – everything you do and everything you say
You know what it’s all about:
It’s all about our love on this Thanksgiving day

Hey, yeah, sing Hallelujah!
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah…
Bring a little bit of heaven right here on earth


Throw It All Away
© 2013 Steve Greeley

You don't need to mess around, Baby
Just come right out and say what's on your mind
I'm standing right here waiting
I see your reason, but I can't hear your rhyme

You give me the silent treatment
Looks like the die has been cast
But I know you're really suffering
You've got to let go of the past

Oh, throw it all away
Throw it all away
There's no looking back (there's no looking back Baby)
Throw it all away - Blow it all away
There's no looking back (there's no going back girl)

Everybody has done some wrong
And had some wrong done by somebody else
But you can't hang on too long
Or you wind up feeding on that hand you were dealt

But I can never make you listen
You tell me I don't understand
You should give yourself permission
To let it all slip through your hands
Like grains of sand

Chorus

You can let all out
That's what it's all about
You say, "I know, I know, I know, I know."
But you can't let go
Look out below!


What Goes Around
© 2013 Steve Greeley


I let you down again
I let you down again
And there’s no use in pretending
Not right now

You might say it was nothing
But nothing couldn’t hurt you that bad
I can’t stand to see what you mean to me, when you’re so sad
You’re all I have

What goes around, comes around, and goes around again
What goes around, comes around, and goes around again
And everybody knows I’m gonna go,
and come and go again
I can’t help myself – I can’t help myself
I don’t know why I do it, Baby

You’ve been with me forever
It might seem longer than that
‘Cause the years go by, and I never satisfy what you need
I just can’t see it

What goes around, comes around, and goes around again
What goes around, comes around, and goes around again
And you and I know I’m gonna go, and come on back again
I can’t help myself – I can’t help myself

And I say, someday I’m gonna make it all up to ya
If it’s the last thing that I ever do
I can’t find another way, but I’m gonna find another way
Though even I know that it ain’t true

What goes around, comes around, and goes around again
What goes around, comes around, and goes around again
And you and I know you’re gonna go, and come on back again
You can’t help yourself – Can’t help yourself
I don’t know why you do it, Baby


Stone Solid
© 2013 Steve Greeley

Walking into the party, I saw her all alone
Just one look was all it took - had to call her on the phone
But what would I say? What would she do?
All I could pray was that somehow I could break through

But now we are stone, stone solid
Our love is stone, stone solid, all right

We've been though everything since then - how much, you'll never know
And she'll be with me to the end, no matter where I go
Nothing out there could break us apart
'Cause you know we share one heart
If she asked me to, there's nothing I wouldn't do

'Cause our love is stone, stone solid - oh!
Stone, stone solid
But we are warm, warm-hearted all night
Stone, stone solid, all right

Nothing out there could break us apart
'Cause you know we share one heart
If she asked me to, there's nothing I wouldn't do

'Cause our love is stone, stone solid - oh!
Stone, stone solid
But we are warm, warm-hearted all night
Stone, stone solid, all right

Yeah, it's all right
Say it's all right
It's all right
Say it’s all right - It’s all right
