banner banner - Texettes heart
  • You’ll be looking good…. just like
    Hollywood …. we’ll be the lady and the tramp
  • All those lonely hearts…… as they fall apart……
    all those lonely hearts, cry
  • I’m a big girl now….
    I can live through the pain…
    I can see through the tears here comes the rain 
  • I’m in love with this country…. I get so high…
    I’m in love with this country of mine
  • No one holds me... honey holds me, no one holds me...
    I feel so damn low
  • And there written on a wall...
    was a message for us all, in letters six feet tall...
    where did the good times go?
  • And I don’t know where I’m heading from
    and I don’t know from where I’m bound,
    but I need someone...
  • I can feel your bare feet walking... across the
    redwood floor... And I heard you catch you breath...
    like so many times before
  • My teddy bear got drunk last night….
    His fur was on the floor… and under it there was a
    teddy bear note saying you don’t love me no more
  • The language of the English….  hangs around my neck. 
    The syllables…. that strangle…. every breath...
    talk in English
  • It’s times like these that I miss cigarettes……
    the smoke and the sky
  • Hello heartache, well you’ve been
    here for a while. Soon our drinking friends
    will be here, that should raise a smile
  • There’s a woman on Mare Street …
    down by the station… rattling
    her can for another good cause
  • When summer’s over... it’s like any time of day…..
    looks like rain again today
  • He’ll arrive late in the pouring rain...
    he’ll be leaving with the steam and the moaning wind...
    so please, carry him home
  • Life is a rodeo... we all end up in the dirt...
    but the prize that I ride for is her
