Mescalero
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Mescalero es lo que quiero
      Combinacion peligroso
      Y es nada especial
      Este cosa es bueno, I know, I know so
      mescalero, turn your head like a red sombrero
      mescalero, mescalero
      Mescalero, que es esto
      No se, mi companero
      Mescalero, que es esto
      Pero este es lo que quiero
      Mescalero, lights me up like a flaming arrow
      Mescalero, mescalero
      Mescalero, El Camino Ford Ranchero
      Mescalero, mescalero

(guitar solo)

      Mescalero, mescalero
      I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it...

Two ways to play
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Something crossed my mind again and you were in my eyes
      It was somewhere I've already been
      Tellin all those lies
      But I've been there and you've been there and there ain't no mistake
      We could take it anyway
      But there one thing you can say
      There's just two ways to play
      Just two ways to play
      I dont wanna stay
      There's just two ways to play and I wanna play it right this time

      There's always the easy numbers there's those hard ways too
      there's those cheaters numbers
      Its either one of two
      But fortune tellin's mesmerizin' and the game of chance
      Rollin' dice ain't sympathizin when you play romance
      There's just two ways to play
      Just two ways to play
      I don't wanna stay
      There's just two ways to play

      I can't control the numbers can't control your sexy ways
      I can't control my inner thunder it makes me wander round for days

      Two ways to play
      There's just two ways to play
      There's just two ways to play
      There's just two ways to play, I'm gonna play it right this time,
      There's two ways to play
      There's just two ways to play
      Two ways to play
      There's just two ways to play

      And I don't want to stay
      There's just two ways to play

Alley-Gator
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Crawlin cross the floor at the Holiday Inn motel
      I saw that girl that my swamp bone knew so well
      She crawled out of Texas and flipped off to Baton Rouge
      She got that Gulf coast sun tan that give the[a] poor boy the blues
      Alley gator, with those hypnotic big green eyes
      Alley gator, she make you cradle, she'll chew it up it ain't no lie

      Crawlin through the weeds with a Louisiana mean toothed grin
      You can tell her that you love her then you better tell her once again
      She might scratch your back and rub you with her rack
      You better watch out, stand back
      Alley gator, with the hypnotic big green eyes
      Alley gator, she make you cradle,
      She'll chew you up it ain't no lie listen here

      Alley gator, with the hypnotic big green eyes
      Alley gator, she'll make you cradle
      She'll chew you up it ain't no lie
      Alley gator with those hypnotic big green eyes
      Alley gator, alley gator, alley gator, alley gator, alley gator, alley 
      gator
      Alley gator, alley gator, crocodile, alley gator

Buck Nekkid
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Two shots shy of a 40 ounce quart
      A hand in the pocket and a hand in her shorts
      Shoot me the two and don't be slow
      You've only got one good way to go
      Get naked, buck naked,
      Buck naked, it's the only way to go

      Twenty-six chicks all tied in a knot
      Ain't all good but it's what we got
      So get naked, buck naked
      Let me see you naked, it's the only way to go
      (let get some sun)(Come on now) 
      Buck, buck
      Feelin' so fine and things are lookin' better
      Baby said maybe, I said I'd let her
      get naked, buck naked
      Let's get naked, it's the only way to go
      Get naked,
      Everybody get naked,
      Buck naked, it's the onliest way to go
      Get naked, get naked,
      Get buck naked

Goin' So Good
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
            Just when I had the money to spend
      And I was always thinkin' it would never end
      Then the time came, to the end of the game
      Don't you know?

      And just when the sky got shiny and bright
      There never seemed to be an end of the light
      But then the clouds came, it started to rain
      Don't you know?

      Just when it was goin'
      Just when it was goin' so good
      Just when it,
      Just when it was goin' so good

      Just when the highway straightend out for a mile
      An' I was thinkin' I just cruise for a while
      A fork in the road brought a new episode
      Don't you know?

      Just when it,
      Just when it was goin' so good
      Just when it was goin'
      Just when it was goin' so good

      But baby don't you worry
      I said baby don't you cry
      We're gonna get it together
      And I know you're askin' why

      Just when it,
      Just when it was goin' so good
      Just when it was goin'
      Just when it was goin' so good

Me So Stupid
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Stop!

      I coulda been a brain surgeon
      I coulda been a pharmacist
      I gave a shot at radio revivalist
      And with the boss man I never been missed

      Me so stupid
      Me so stupid
      Me so stupid
      What is my IQ
      What is my intelligent quotient?

      I coulda been the Golden Gate Bridge
      Or Einstein's nemesis
      I coulda been the derby jockey
      But it's all come down to this

      Me so stupid
      Me so stupid
      Me so stupid
      What is my IQ
      What is my intelligent quotient?

      I coulda been Las Vegas
      I coulda built a drop top Rolls Royce
      Coulda been the president of the world
      Coulda had Ali on the ropes
      Coulda had Miss August - again
      Coulda had Miss May - again
      Coulda had Miss September - again
      But I waited till December 
      Man oh man

      Me so stupid
      Me so stupid
      Me so stupid
      What is my IQ?
      What is my intelligent quotient?

      That's so wrong

What Would You Do
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      What would you do
      If you was to love me
      What would you do
      If I loved you too
      I' know that I'd
      Fall like a sinner
      I'd rather fall in sin
      than fall in Blues

      What would you do
      If you was to fuck me
      What would you do
      If I fucked you too
      I know that I'd
      Fall like a sinner
      I'd rather fall in sin
      Than fall in Blues

      Sometimes someone gets down and out
      Sometimes someone get love divine

      What would I do
      If you was to fuck me
      What would you do
      If I fucked you too
      I know that I'd
      Fuck like a sinner
      I know that I'd
      Fuck you till you're blue
      I know that I'd
      Fuck you till you're blue

Que Lastima
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Y nosotros los pobres borrachos [And we the poor drunks]
      Nadie nos quiere coger [No one wants to have sex with us]
      Nuestro corazon no es tan malo [Our heart isn't so bad]
      Pero no tenemos mujer [But we don't have a woman]
      Que lastima, que lastima, que lastima [What a pity...]
      Que lastima, que lastima, que lastima

      Nosotros tenemos cervezas [We have beers]
      Tambien tenemos tiempo [We also have time]
      Importante tener pocos pesos [It's important to have a few pesos]
      Pero mi suerte es mala siempre [But my luck is always bad]
      Que lastima, que lastima, que lastima [What a pity...]
      Que lastima, que lastima, que lastima

      Que lastima, que lastima, que lastima
      Que lastima, que lastima, que lastime

      My baby turned my mind to mush
      She took my liquor, left me the can to crush

      She had the gangsta lean, look a little flushed
      She took my liquor, left me the can to crush

As Time Goes By
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      You must remember this
      A kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh
      The fundamental things apply
      As time goes by

      And when two lovers woo
      They still say "I love you", on that you can rely
      No matter what the future brings
      As time goes by 

      Moonlight and love songs, never out of date
      Hearts full of passion, jealousy, and hate
      Woman needs man and man must have his mate
      That no one can deny

      It's still the same old story
      A fight for love and glory, a case of do or die
      The world will always welcome lovers
      As time goes by
