What's The Point?!!


LYRICS


GET THE JOB DONE

Don't be tellin' me what to do
I think I know what I'm s'posed to do
Don't be tellin' me where to go
I think I know where I'm s'posed to be
Don't be tellin' me what to do
Especially since I am the boss

So I want you to do something for me
And I want it finished by the time I get back

Get the job done
Get the job done now

LOVE HAS DOUBT

Love has doubt when you're out
Love has what when it's not

I've been in love so many times
Every time it happened I found out
In the end what's meant to last forever
Doesn't win the battle with time
Every time I lose

Love has doubt
Love has doubt

Love has doubt when you're outside
Love has what when it's not

I did belong to another very special one
Who showed me I had a future wife
It was great in the beginning
But the battle with time is here
And i'm expecting to lose again

Love has doubt

Love has doubt when you're out it has
Love has doubt when it's out
Whatever happens will affect my opinion on
Love and hate and marriage and sex
It's great in the beginning but
It cannot last forever if it's
Built-in automatic to lose

THEME FROM HURRICANE DAVID (inst.)

1979 r.stevie moore


PART OF THE PROBLEM

someone tell me what i'm supposed to do when the occasion comes around for me to prove i am good
i can't find the answer to the question even though i'd like to demonstrate if only i could

you are just part of the problem
i must be most of the problem
I'm serious!

funny people always come to me about their inhibitions but there's no solution at all
i would like to help but i am usually too busy to prevent the way my friends want to fall

and consequently, the combination of your rhetoric and my ignorance
only tend to horrify the situation to the point where
the lifeblood of our relationship evaporates into the air on which we choke

i wanna show you that i
can't be anymore inspiring
just leave me alone until the
time comes when i learn the answer
then i'll write a novel 'bout it
you can read the novel and the
problem will be solved and we can

then go back to living in an ordinary way and all the people all around us can say
they are really happy that the novel was successful and they know just how to cope with today

possible, impossible
it's possible, impossible
it's probable, improbable now
possible, impossible
it's possible, impossible
it's probable, improbable now

1978 r.stevie moore


COMPATIBILITY LEAVES

i woke at the crack of dawn
and laughed at what i had on
everyone was standing over me
handing me compatibility leaves

i spoke with the talking heads
and said i hate waterbeds
had to go work at 7:30
hiding the compatibility leaves

i could use some therapy
it could be mixed with water
train me feed me wash my body
every lady oughta

could you please advise upon
this confidential matter
tell me help me teach my body
what is all the clatter

it made little sense at all
that i was the one to fall
now i feel a touch of sanity
i lost my compatibility pot

1977 r.stevie moore


GOING DOWN THE WAY

ready to leave i'm tired of this place
jump on a bus and join the rat race
i don't have a destination, so
i hesitate to think where i'll be
don't know what i'm doing and i
don't know where i'm going i'm just

going down the way
going down the way

riding along we're speeding much too fast
see all the lights on everything we pass
i don't have a bus stop in mind, so
i hesitate to rise from my seat
don't know what i'm doing and i
don't know where i'm going i'm just

going down the way

PUTTIN' UP THE GROCERIES

do you wanna see anymore TV
would you rather be helping mom and me?

puttin' up the groceries now
we just got back from foodtown
there are still three sacks in the cadillac
puttin' up the groceries
(if you want dinner, you better give us a hand)

eight brown bags in all
stacked against the wall
roast beef and pine sol
come and help us y'all

puttin' up the groceries now
just got back from morristown
there is milk and bread and a lettuce head
puttin' up the groceries now

careful with the eggs
where's the chicken legs?
spot the dog will beg
when he sees the vegetables

puttin' up the groceries now
i'm about to starve and how
there is nothing left to put on the shelf
cookin' up the groceries now

1978 r.stevie moore


CONFLICT OF INTEREST

i am stupid you are smart
getting ignored just breaks my heart
thinking in the auto where am i at
i don't wanna know the answer to that

not responsible for getting it right
holding my breath every night
scared to death you will not react
i don't wanna know the reaction to that

good shape
good shape
good shape
good shape

conflict of interest
i ain't gonna quit
conflict of interest
i ain't gonna change
there's a conflict of interest
i cannot improve
i can't no i can't
i don't know how

what is the reason for this grief
is my personality too deep
you might say i'm wasting my time
trying to solve this inhuman crime

take me back to maplewood get me a job
write apologetic letter to bob
anything is better than singing this song
nothing is right but something is wrong

BLOODY KNUCKLES

(Lyrics by Susan Griffin)

everything is intricate
but being is so empty
i've become dismantled
green with age and envy
where did all these cries
come for from the first
giving stimulation
projecting dying thirst

this knowledge is but vague
this answer is then clear
this safety is not working
you must then reappear
there is no punctuation
there is no chapter two
no appeal of sentence
yet so much new to do

if you loved me so much
would i make it worth your while
i'm smothered by your touch
i am bruised to have your style
in the rarest form of pure
most common in the leer
my knuckles are still bloody
from wanting to be here

the aroma is still heady
from wanting to be near
my knuckles are still bloody
from wanting to be here
wanting to be here
wanting to be here

aunt walter has left home
bobby doesn't remember
where he left his tractor
aunt walter wants attention
i'm losing my patience
leave me alone leave me alone
crayons are melting
teardrops are ice spinning spinning
breath like an alley exhaust fan (J.P.)

wanting to be here

WHERE YOU RESIDE

Where you reside
Ow
On which your mama lives

I'm afraid that you won't help me
Crossing the street to go to work
I can't make it by myself, I would
Jump out in front of a car

1980 r.stevie moore


I WANNA SLEEP

i don't wanna wake up tomorrow
i wanna sleep i wanna sleep
i just wanna drowse in my sorrow
i wanna sleep i wanna sleep

ooh i wanna lay in bed all day all weekend
ooh i wanna lay in bed all night sleep tight

i'll make my alarm clock be quiet
i wanna sleep i wanna dream
i don't wanna see any light cause
i wanna sleep i wanna sleep
i wanna dream

ooh i wanna lay in bed all day all weekend
ooh i wanna lay in bed all night
spend my life right

1978 r.stevie moore


WORLD'S FAIR (inst.)

1973 r.stevie moore


I'M TOO OLD (TO FALL IN LOVE)

If love is just a part of living
Then love is clearly just a situation

I'm too old to fall in love with you
I'm getting too old to live with me
Do it

Is love among your friends
a roast beef sandwich?

See my pistol?
It is crystal clear
In the hallways
Love is always near
Do you listen
To my this and that?
I'm too old to fall in love again

1978 r.stevie moore


"He has a lovely voice!"
"Yes, he does!"
"Thank you."
