ADVANCED R. Stevie Moore 2011


[FACE ONE]

01. ICARUS (Ralph Towner)
instrumental


02. POP MUSIC

If you see a change
yes, it's true
i'm a useful man
in these shoes
(down down down)

and you know by heart
pop music makes you smart
like me

when you see the wind
blow my way
i'm here tomorrow
not today

and you like the style
pop music makes you smile
at me

i was a little bit nauseous, see
i couldn't find sign of a cause, so
slowly my ears were curing me
easily listening pause

come onto my stage
play your head
you can call your friends
tell what i said

and you know by heart
pop music is the start.

1974 R. Stevie Moore


03. THE BUZZ (Victor Lovera)

I hear the rumors spreading all over town
i see nobody making plans to come around
your manager is out of jail in florida
i think your band's against the wall
the buzz is there's no buzz at all

you started out by selling stuff on corners
it was a lousy thing but you were learning
you stole a guitar and you started singing
the saddest songs i ever heard
the saddest songs i ever heard
the saddest songs i ever heard

just blowin' like a sheet
of paper in the street
your songs are like the skin
of the night
and so
please shed your tears, you know
the buzz won't let you go
it's all the buzz you know

the buzz is like an ache growin'
the buzz is something like a quake dyin'
the buzz can evens fall asleep forever
you've got to roll the ball along
or there will be no buzz at all

and you will never feel
how good it is to steal
the talk of all the town
all around

the buzz is something like an ache growin'
the buzz is something like a quake dyin'
the buzz can even fall asleep forever
you've got to roll the ball along
or there will be no buzz at all
or there will be no buzz at all
or there will be no buzz at all.

1996 Victor Lovera


04. RUNNY NOSE, MONEY WOES

Your smile is contagious, baby
i think it's outrageous, famously

luck of the draw, we're a card game
table and chair
what can be done in regards to
our stable of thoroughbreds?

you found me online, accidentally
we sound so alive, evidently

look what you saw at the ball game
gable & crawford films
where can i run to a small place?
label maker

runny nose, i need a box of kleenex
money woes, you read a book between
blossom toes, i need a new deposit slip
money woes, you read a book of green

my grin is contagious, baby
you know it's outrageous, famously

luck of the draw, we're a card game
table and chair
what can be done in regards to
our stable of thoroughbreds?

2011 R. Stevie Moore


05. THEOREM (Moore/Lane Steinberg/Roger Ferguson)

How you save me
from so much grief
but you're such a lonely thief

where's the heart?
(i think i know where it might be)
or did she take that too?
(no, it's right here with me)
to break right through
broke in two.

how you trigger
all that's required
to launch every missile fired

peace returned
(it comes and goes or so it seems)
but at such a cost
(paid with all your hopes and dreams)
and what was learned?
no one learns.

2011 Moore/Steinberg/Ferguson


06. YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MY LOVE

You might ask where you are
you're with me
you've endured me so far
i'm with you

i won't have to know
til it's time to go
you don't have to worry about my love

i might give you a clue
some secret
i could whisper to you
some wisdom

i don't have to tell
wait for it to gel
cause you don't have to worry about my love

i want you to stay inside me
lay beside me
let us get some rest

i think you are good
living like you should
you don't have to worry about murray frank
you don't have to worry about my love.

1978 R. Stevie Moore


07. CARMEN IS COMING

Well, i been reading your diary and i can see
that every day you been thinkin' on me
Carmen

i saw you ride your bike down the avenue
and you smiled when you caught me waving at you
Carmen

Carmen is coming
Carmen hold on tight
Carmen is coming
Carmen's cold at night

she thought that she would always live uptown
but now she came down south to the underground
Farmin'

Carmen is coming
Carmen hold on tight!

take me to court if these are damaging words
but we can fly up in the sky, very high lovebirds
Carmen (wheee!)

Carmen is coming
Carmen hold on tight
Car comin'!
Carmen imma coming
Carmen hold on tight, right
Carmen fears nothing
(Axis:bold as love)
Karma chameleon
across my state lines.

13. ONE SIGHT OF ME

Do you wish i was there
combing your hair?
do you wish that you could see
one sight of me?

do you wish you were here
sharing good cheer?
do you wish you that you could see
one sight of me?

i'm so lonely
you're so lonely
too bad
you're denying
i am crying
too sad
new pad

do you wish we were close
nearer than most?
do you wish that i would go
okay, i'll go

HURRY UP!
WHY YOU TAKE SO LONG?
YOU THINK I GOT ALL DAY?
LET'S GO!
MOVE IT!

HURRY UP!
WHY YOU TAKE SO LONG?
YOU THINK I GOT ALL DAY?
LET'S GO!
MOVE IT!

twiddling my thumbs
glancing at my watch
pacing down the hall
careful not to fall
HURRY UP!

YOU THINK I GOT ALL DAY?

turtle pace
snail's race
turtle race
snail's pace

twiddlin' my thumbs
glancin' at my watch
pacin' down the hall
careful not to fall

wrinkle face
in outer space
