Watch Your Back (Beaton)

Back when I was a teen
My father he said to me:
"I've got a story for you.
Your back! Watch Your Back."

Living life under the gun
Ain't so easy when you're on the run
Always listen to this advice,
Your back, Watch Your Back."

Tried once to get away
Had to turn the other way
Soon felt a knife in my back
Holy Shit man, I'm under attack.

Back when I was a teen
My father he said to me:
"I've got a story for you.
Your back! Watch Your Back."

My best friend was a thief
Problem stealing from me,
As he taxed me, he used to say 
Your back! Watch Your Back."

Now this story is over and done
Think about it when you're on the run
Always listen to this advice,
Your back, Watch Your Back."

Calling Dr. Haledjian (Beaton)

The body is in the study
And all the doors are locked
The carpet is kinda muddy
It's time to set the clocks

We've got two minutes to solve this awful crime
You'd better hurry 'cause we're running out of time.

Call in the guy who's always the best
Match wits with him and you're put to the test
Do it twice and he'll lay you to rest,
We're calling Dr. Haledjian.

The family jewels were stolen
There were footprints on the roof
The butler claims he was bowling
I don't think he's telling the truth

We need someone who can help us catch this crook
Not some chump who needs to check the back of the book.

 

Lone Star (Beaton)

He lives by honour of  the code of the West
That leaves him nothing but the badge on his chest
The Texas Ranger, that lone tall stranger
The man they call Lone Star

Across the Pegos in that small mining town
Sanchez the killer has just shot a man down
He shot none other, than the young brother of
The man they call Lone Star

A hundred miles across the desert
Under the burning sun
As Sanchez rode that dusty trail
His second man was his gun

It was high noon by the Devil's Pass
The sweat was pouring off their brows
The pistols drawn and the six-shooters blast
And Sanchez sends another man to Boot Hell now

The dust settled and the folks gathered 'round
Around the body that lay dead on the ground
Above his head that tombstone read:
"The man they call Lone Star"

 

Party in JA (Walsh)

There is a party in Jamaica, and nobody want it to stop
A party in Jamaica and they want it to go on and on
And if they ever stop it, then the children they get rowdy
The policeman be comin' and kickin' everyone

And then you wake up in the morning with the taste of blood in your mouth
You walk around in your cell and you don't know where you are
The policeman be telling you, you're gonna go to prison
And that's what's gonna happen if you let the party stop, so

Let the party go on and on

Another day, another night, another dance, another fight
They're gonna ruin all the party with all their violence and their spite
So let us tell you children that you gotta listen to the reason
The fun is all but over if you let the party stop, so

Let the party go on and on

So pick it up and put it down, or put it in your pocket
Don't you ever let it go because the beat belongs to you
Let the party fill you up just like the power of a rocket
And tell you one more time that this is what you gotta do, so

Let the party go on and on

There is a party in Jamaica, and nobody want it to stop
A party in Jamaica and they want it to go on and on
And if they ever stop it, then the children they get rowdy
The policeman be comin' and kickin' everyone
