                  I'm gonna find me a groovy little hippie pad. 
                  I'm gonna find me a groovy little hippie pad.

Heaven, Hell, or Houston/a>

                  Hello darling. 
                  Surprised? 
                  Yes, it's me again. 
                  I have just returned from the island of Chandelier. 
                  What am I doing in town? 
                  Well, I'm glad you asked. 
                  I'm just passing through in search of the ever elusive 
                  Thunderbird. 

                  I got a job as a public relations man. 
                  Passing out handbills on Austin Street. 
                  Merely an effort to improve my financial situation, 
                  And ward off a case of the D.T.'s 

                  So farewell, my darling. 
                  Perhaps we'll meet again 
                  On some sin-infested street corner in Houston Texas.

I Wanna Drive you Home

                  She is an American car, 
                  She isn't legal so she can't go far. 
                  She got her mind stuck up in second gear, 
                  Where she going ain't exactly clear. 
                  Baby please, baby please, I wanna drive you home. 

                  Low mileage without a pink slip, 
                  Clean upholstery and it ain't been ripped. 
                  She stripped her gears only late last night, 
                  I don't think that thing was oiling right. 
                  Baby please, baby please, I wanna drive you home. 

                  She shakes and shimmies all over the road, 
                  She's always happy when she carry a load. 
                  Another lonesome automobile, 
                  Something bout the way she makes me feel. 
                  Baby please, baby please, I wanna drive you home.

It's So Hard

                  When the light comes and yu're feelin' down 
                  Cause your baby's out there somewhere runnin' round. 
                  Don't start feeling blue and feeling lonely too, 
                  It's hard I know when that love ain't true. 

                  You just can't explain, but you know it's there, 
                  That empty feeling seems so unfair. 
                  What can you do when it's gone, it's gone, 
                  'Cause those lovin' feelings seem to hurt so long. 

                  So if you feel like cryin', go ahead and cry, 
                  A heartbreak will cool as time goes by. 
                  And it's so hard baby, it's so hard to take. 
                  It's so hard baby, it's so hard to take. 

                  Well you work so long every day and night, 
                  Tryin' every thing that seems so right. 
                  But when a love falls a heart must break, 
                  And it's so hard baby, it's so hard to take.

Leila

                  She had a look in her eye that could make you melt, 
                  Made me feel better than I ever felt. 
                  But bless her heart, she couldn't stay, 
                  I begged her not to go away. 
                  She left my ex best friend out in old Tucson, 
                  Told me she was leavin and would be rollin on. 
                  Now the days just pass on by, 
                  Losin' her is the reason why. 
                  Leila, Leila your mind will be flying high 
                  And everything will be alright. 

                  You know I love you girl more than I can say, 
                  I still think about you each and every day. 
                  My lonesome old hearttill feels the same, 
                  So Leila won't you steal away. 
                  Leila, Leila your mind will be flying high 
                  And everything will be alright. 

                  Leila, Leila your mind will be flying high 
                  And everything will be alright.

Party on the Patio

                  I found an empty house in my neighborhood, 
                  I knew that wer shouldn't but I thought we could. 
                  Knew it wouldn't be hard to slide into the backyard, 
                  Called all my friends and slipped a hundred to the guard. 
                  We turned on the radio and had a party on the patio. 

                  Betty's in the sauna and she's getting kind of hot, 
                  Mary's in the icebox wishin' she was not. 
                  Connie's in the whirlpool, Jimmy's tryin' to be cool, 
                  Libby's in the bushes 'cause she's nobody's fool. 
                  We turned the lights down low and had a party on the patio. 

                  Heard the cops are coming so we tried to jump the fence, 
                  Mary didn't make it and we haven't seen her since. 
                  Connie had another drink, Jimmy simply couldn't think, 
                  Billy G. was passed out underneath the sink. 
                  But everybody's gonna show for another party on the patio.

Pearl Necklace

                  She's really upset with me again, 
                  I didn't give her what she likes. 
                  I don't know what to tell her, 
                  Don't know what to say. 
                  Everything got funky last night. 

                  She was really bombed, 
                  And I was really blown away, 
                  Until I asked her what she wanted, 
                  And this is what she had to say: 
                  A pearl necklace. 
                  She wanna pearl necklace. 
                  She wanna pearl necklace. 

                  She gets a charge out of bein' so weird, 
                  Digs gettin' downright strange. 
                  But I can keep a handle on anything, 
                  Just this side of deranged. 

                  She was gettin' bombed, 
                  And I was gettin' blown away, 
                  And she held it in her hand 
                  And this is what she had to say: 
                  A pearl necklace. 
                  She wanna pearl necklace. 
                  She wanna pearl necklace. 

                  She is so tough, as pure as the driven slush. 
                  And that's not true what she's talkin' about, [see notes] 
                  It really don't cost that much. 

                  She was gettin' bombed, 
                  And I was gettin' blown away, 
                  And she took it in her hand, 
                  And this is what she had to say: 
                  A pearl necklace. 
                  She wanna pearl necklace. 
                  She wanna pearl necklace.
