Track Name: Au Revoir
Au Revoir she said
Au Revoir she's gone
so far away that it seems
she was never here before
Don't leave me here
don't you leave me here
I prayed before she left.
She showed me her worst face

I promised things
I promised things that didn’t go
but she gave me a wedding ring and deadline
and that was the end
When the night falls
now when the darkness falls
silver planes fly over roofs
when the darkness falls

I was shy at first
she was bold all the time
at the end she cried me a river
like a little child
When the coffee cools
when a cigarette burns
a french perfume smells
that don’t let me sleep

She tried to be good
almost she got it
She let me be the king
and for a while she was my queen
She had no mercy
didn’t hesitate
she ate a piece of me and
spat the rest, didn't hesitate
Track Name: Fancy Girl Blues
I’m gonna buy what I fancy. Put her at my backdoor
I’m gonna buy what I fancy. Put her at my backdoor
The way is clear babe active thinking right now

When she shakes her ass for me I can bear the pain
When she moves her ass for me I pretend I don’t care
It's what a gentleman should do to please his maid

What I want is a slinky girl. She won't dance all night long?
What I want is a fancy girl. She won't dance 'fore day?
I‘d like to stay with her when the day starts to end

I can recognize my faults without an ounce of shame
I can admit my sins while I kiss her legs
I'm not proud but I won’t change this for anything else

Mama was always so hard about all my mistakes
Mama was not always fair. Now I struggle to find myself
She let me rest my head on her breasts

I see my love in any place and I hear her moan
I know my love is anywhere and I hear her moan
I can drive my life if I feel her in the dark
Track Name: Hopeless Blues
Jesus I'm hopeless
Jesus I forgot the way
I felt forgotten and
decided to keep in a blind alley
Don’t expect any good babe
Don’t expect any good with me
I lost my faith gambling
I lost my faith one summer night

I like going to church
while the priest takes a nap
Jesus forgive my sins
Jesus forgive me if you think I’ve sinned
Some nights I see the devil
some he sleeps with me
I lost my faith gambling
I lost my faith one summer night

The day turns grey
I confuse the night with pain
You forgot my name
for a while I’m a hopeless man

Jesus I’m hopeless
Jesus I forgot the way
I'm not mad at you
I’m not alone but I'm not crowded at all
I found love on my way
Someone stole my sadness
I can’t lose more that I got
neither get rid of my roots
Track Name: Robbie Rose Blues
I drove slowly down the road of blues
Slowly I drove my car on the road of blues
from New Orleans I drove my car
down the road of blues

It was late at night but the music never stopped
It was late at night but the music never stopped
I tried to sleep but the blues didn’t stop

I'm going where the Mississippi River meets the Wolf
I'm going where the Mississippi River meets the Wolf
I wanna get to Beale Street to rest my bones

Some people said I should meet Robbie Rose
other people said I should meet Robbie Rose
at Room Boogie I met the great Robbie Rose

Down through the red and blue neon way
Down through the red and blue neon way
I took my harp in my pocket and nothing more

I was worried about not living good
I was worried not living good. But I still
Robbie Rose gave me a chance to perform and I did
Track Name: The Thin Line
I can live with less
with almost nothing
I could pick your hair
or bring you to the beach
but I can’t see the sky
my eyes are so burned
that I can’t hide it.
Neither keep your gaze

I can cross the border
with just a cocaine line
I can go down the river
unable to feel pain
Let me smell your hair
only just for once.
Give me a cigarrette
and I’ll give you a rest

I live like a river going down
I feel like free bird going down
but I can cross the desert
through the thin line at dawn
But I can cross the ocean
through the thin line at dawn

I can’t stop my tears but I can hide them
I can say that I can
and then leave you nothing.
You say I have no choice. You might be right
There are many things that cost
and those that count
Track Name: It's not too late Yet
I tried to behave myself
resting in the last ditch
I am just a passenger
but it's not too late yet

For each uncut flower
I would pay a dime
“you’re guilty” my wife said
but it's still not too late
It’s the way to redeem myself
to justify my faults

My father dressed smart
He was a worthy man
He taught me to work
He forgot to say the truth
For dignity lives on the edge
it's still not too late

Every man is a poet
though they don’t know
Only love can wake you
but it's still not to late
I saw people losing everything
Waiting for broken promises
Track Name: Melvina
I know you, you walked on my tracks
Hey Melvina Hey Melvina
you move with ease
waves not erasing the trail I left behind

I've seen it before
you give a charming look
Hey Melvina Hey Melvina
un deux trois you go to smash
my battered heart

A extra shot of bourbon
and I’ll be on the dance floor
Hey Melvina Hey Melvina
you try to fuss and
I’m a weak man so I’ll marry you

You wipe with a claw
my stupid grin
Hey Melvina Hey Melvina
you dance from a life-boat
and I can’t reach your shore
Track Name: Cloaca Boogie
You always say that I am a dark dude
You always say I keep secrets in my wallet
Splashing in Cloaca
Splashing in Cloaca
I am not an angel
but girls want to lay down with me

A boogie in Cloaca
A boggie in Cloaca
A boogie in Cloaca
A boogie in Cloaca
this is my invite to dance
a boogie boogie in Cloaca

For once! you could forget your reputation
For Twice! might you think
you can stand all over me?
Splashing in Cloaca
Splashing in Cloaca
I'm not the devil although it might seem
