Track Name: ROCKABILLY TILL I DIE
ROCKABILLY TILL I DIE (H. Engel)
I'll be rockabilly til I die
I'll be rockabilly til I die
I'm gonna get a Gretsch guitar and comb my hair up high
I'll be rockabilly til I die

Dragnett Dennis sang and slapped the bass
Until somebody grabbed his girl and he jumped offstage
While the band played right along he punched him in the jaw
Then jumped back up and finished off the song

I'll be rockabilly til I die...

The owner of the club was gettin' mad
The place was empty and he said where's all your fans
Then I heard a rumblin' sound down the main street of town
It was the Roadmen Car Club come to bail me out

I'll be rockabilly til I die

Art Adams finished off the show
But a bad drunk didn't want the band to go
Then to everyone's surprise, sweet Tommie dropped that guy
With a full beer bottle right between the eyes

I'll be rockabilly til I die...
Track Name: ALL HOPPED UP
ALL HOPPED UP (H. Engel)
I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up
I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up
I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up
I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up
Well c'mon pretty baby let's go 'cos I'm all hopped up

Come screamin' into town on the 40
Grab the drummer with the pinup on his big bass drum
Strap the double bass to the roof and then
Make the Cadillac Lounge about a minute to ten
Plug in my Gretsch and tip my hat to the crowd
Count the fellas in and burn the whole place down

I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up...

There's a line of gals dancin' in front of the stage
Lookin' like Marilyn and Bettie Page
But my baby's got a look that's all her own
She's sultry and voluptuous and real high-tone
The gals don't like 'cos she's got it all
Y'know my baby she's a livin' doll

I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up...

2AM I'm still stoked from the show
So I grab my baby and away we go
A little after hours speakeasy club
Where they sneak you shots of rye in a paper cup
The joint's really jammed and it's startin' to hop
The band's pretty old but they sure can rock

I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up...

Head down the main drag about twenty to five
Make the scene with the fellas and the streets alive
Hang on the corner grab a dog and then
Stumble back to the drummer's and fall down dead
I'll fall asleep at my desk come Monday at nine
But man I'm havin' me a real good time

I'm all hopped up - He's all hopped up...
Track Name: CRASH THE HOP
CRASH THE HOP (H. Engel)
I hear the rich kids are gonna have a dance tonight
Let's stop by and show 'em how to do it right
Hope the quarterback tries to start a fight

There's a big punch bowl but it needs a little kick
Pour in some whiskey that's a pretty neat trick
Make that kid drink until he gets real sick

Cheerleader Jenny had nothin' to say
When I tried to talk nice to her everyday
Now Johnny's got her cornered and she can't get away

Miss Sawyer always put me out in the hall
Now she's inchin' towards the door with her back against the wall
Actin' real scared but I know she wants to ball
Track Name: HONEY DON'T COOL OFF ON ME
HONEY DON'T COOL OFF ON ME (H. Engel)
Honey don't cool off on me, you know I wanna feel your fire
Honey don't cool off on me, you know I wanna feel your fire
Speak to me in a sultry voice with your pretty eyes full of desire

On the night we met when we started to pet you came on like a ball of flame
On the night we met when we started to pet you came on like a ball of flame
I looked up through my rear window and the stars were spelling out your name

Honey don't cool off on me...

I used to come and see you at work and you'd lead me to the floor above
I used to come and see you at work and you'd lead me to the floor above
Hot vacant office on the second floor was our sweltering jungle of love

Honey don't cool off on me...
Track Name: I KNOW YOU HEAR ME CALLING
I KNOW YOU HEAR ME CALLING (H. Engel)
Girl I know you hear me calling you, you better tell me where you at
Girl I know you hear me calling you, you better tell me where you at
Better not think that you'll ever leave me 'cos you won't get away with that

Babe you better not be back to doin' what you always done before
Babe you better not be back to doin' what you always done before
Better hope I never catch you slippin' outta your back door

Girl I know you hear me calling you...

Girl when I catch you I'm gonna grab you and throw you right across my back
Girl when I catch you I'm gonna grab you and throw you right across my back
I don't care how you kick and scream I'm gonna drag you back down to my shack

Girl I know you hear me calling you...
Track Name: ROCKABILLY TILL I DIE (BANNED VERSION)
ROCKABILLY TILL I DIE (BANNED VERSION) (H. Engel)
I'll be rockabilly till I die
I'll be rockabilly till I die
I'm gonna get a Gretsch guitar and comb my hair up high
I'll be rockabilly till I die

Sean was playin' on the street to make his rent
I stopped to listen though I didn't have a cent
Man that cat could blow on his beat up saxophone
And I said man you gotta come and play the show
(Sean Winter Solo)

I'll be rockabilly till I die...

Andy started out a Rockin' Fool
Then he cut off all his hair and played the blues
But he came back around to that rockabilly sound
And now he plays just like he did in '82
(Andy Graffiti Solo)

I'll be rockabilly till I die...

See that fella there, Big Daddy Bo
If you saw him on the street you'd never know
'Neath his Clark Kent poker face, he's an animal on the bass
And he makes the women swoon and faint in droves
(Big Daddy Bo Solo)

I'll be rockabilly till I die...

My kid used to think I was a square
When I sang Elvis songs and put grease in my hair
But now hen knows the score, he don't tease me like before
And he wants to play guitar like Scotty Moore
(Aidan Engel Solo)

I'll be rockabilly till I die...
