THE PLUMBER
(Dave Hole)

I am the Plumber, girl I'm in your neighbourhood
I am the Plumber, yes I'm in your neighbourhood
When I fix your sink it'll be so good

I am the joiner, I can join you anytime
I am the joiner, yes I can join you anytime
I can drive a nail in right on line

I am the salesman  as I walk up to your door
I am the salesman, girl I walk up to your door
Once I get inside you'll order more

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PRETTY TO SING THE BLUES
(Dave Hole)

Out West, in Hollywood - nice people and they all look good
Big cars, big movies stars, driving up and down the
nighbourhood

Action, right on cie, cut! cut! that makeup won't do
Close shot, that's really hot, star quality is shoving through

LIfe is easy for a good looking few
But, you don't have to be pretty to sing the Blues

New York, Central Park
, working out 'till after dark
They keep in great shape, the high life don't leave its mark

But I ain't itchin to be in the shoes
'Cause you don't have to be pretty to sing the Blues

John Lee Hooker sings the Blues
Hubert Sumlin sings the Blues
Buddy Guy sings the Blues
Hound Dog Taylor, Matt Taylor, Koko Taylor

Albert Collins sings the Blues
Eric Clapton sings the Blues
Steve Tallis sings the Blues
B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King

Johnny Winter sings the Blues
Junior Wells sings the Blues
Ivan Zar sure sings the Blues
Robert Johnson, Willie Johnson, Jimmy Johnson

Life is easy for a good looking dude
But you don't have to be pretty to sing the Blues

DO WHAT YOU DO
(Dave Hole)

Out with your friends, leave me all alone
Sitting here waiting by the phone
You finally call me up, its from the County Gaol
You're tearing up the town, I've got to bring you down some bail

When you do what you do
When you do what you do
When you do what you do, honey I just can't help you

I took you to a party, you had to much to drink
Flirting with a biker, gave him a wink
I saw him pick you up, he was nearly twice my size
He threw you on his bike, I heard those squealing tyres

Chorus

Took your credit card, and ran it up a grand
Caught the taxi home, with more than you planned
A dress, a coat, a hat, a brand new of shoes

Chorus

IS IT TRUE? (part 1)
(Dave Hole)

Is it true, what they say?
Heard the news yesterday
Don't seem right; must be wrong
Can't believe that you're gone, that you're gone

Made me stop, made me cry
Made me feel, why oh why
Life is short, gone so long
Left the world with your song, with your song

Tell me is it true. Voodoo Child is there with you?

Takes me back in my mind
Different place, different time
Still the same, feel the pain
Nothings changed, still the same, it's still the same

Tell me is it true. Voodoo Child is there with you?
Tell me is it true. Voodoo Child is there with you?

THREE DAYS OUT
(Dave Hole)

I'm three days out of Perth baby, and it's you I want to see
three days out of Perth baby, and it's you I want to see
You're such a kind-hearted woman,
and you mean all the world to me

So many towns these days, and you are always on my mind
So many towns these days, and you are always on my mind

woman is hard to find

Gonna walk in that front door baby,

SIGN ME UP
(Dave Hole)

If you want somebody to love, sign me up
If you want somebody to squeeze and hug, sign me up
Sign me up, sign me up, sign me up Lord
Come on pretty baby, won't you sign me up

When you need a helping hand, I'm your man
The weight on your shoulders more than you can stand,
I'm your man
Sign me up, sign me up, sign me up Lord
Come on pretty darling won't you sign me up

If you want my loving little darling won't you show it
If you need my kissin little darling let me know it
Tell me what I'm longing to hear

If you're alone and you don't wanna be, just call me
None so blind as those that cannot see, just call me
Sign me up, sign me up, sign me up girl
Come on pretty darling won't you sign me up

If you need somebody to kiss, sign me up
If you need somebody that you can miss, sign me up

ME AND MY GUITAR
(Dave Hole)

When I left home I was just 16, I was all alone
Me and My guitar
I played the clubs, I played for free, I hit the scene
Me and My guitar

The Blues has got me
nobody can help me but my guitar

I've paid my dues, I've got the Blues down to my shoes
Me and My guitar
I've spent the night out on cold ground when things was tight
Me and My guitar

Chorus

The woman I love she gave me up, she threw me out
Me and My guitar
It's time to go, it's time to blow this lonesome town
Me and My guitar

Chorus

NEW WAY TO LIVE
(Dave Hole)

Everybody's talking about a new way of doing things
Everybody's talking about a new way to live
Everybody's saying we've got to try to change things
Take a little less, and learn to give

It's a new way to live
It's a new way to live
It's a new way to live
Everybody's talking about a new way to live

They're tellings us it's time to give the world
back again
Give the birds some air, give the fish sea
The tigers in the jungle, jungle needs the pouring rain
Don't dig up the ground, just set her free

Chorus

A lot of people making things so we can all keep breaking things
Throw away the old when there's new things to buy
A whole lot of rubbish getting bigger every single day
Breaking down the earth, breaking up the sky

Chorus

Don't need petrol in the tank, don't need money in the bank
What we really needs is just a new way to live
Don't needs papers every day, got to be a better way
Help our poor world to forgive

Chorus

Everybody's talking about a new way of doing things
Everybody's talking about a new way to live
Everybody's saying we've got to try to change things
Take a little less, and learn to give

Chorus

IS IT TRUE? (part 2)
(Dave Hole)

Is it true, what they say?
Heard the news yesterday
Don't seem right, must be wrong
Can't believe that you're gone, that you're gone

Some folks give, some folks take
Gave your all, no mistake
Soul to soul, man to man
Always thought that I would see you again, see you again

Tell me is it true. Voodoo Child is there with you?
Tell me is it true. Voodoo Child is there with you?

WRECKING YARD
(Dave Hole)

70' Mercedes was the pride of my life
The day that I met you, almost lost my wife
But now you're getting old and your chassis's rusting out
Your tyres are bald, you're engine stalls, and I begin to should
crying please don't make my life so hard
Come on little Mercedes, you're gonna wind up down the wrecking yard

The day was cold and wet, there was water in the street
I went out for a drive, came home with we feet
Holes in the roof, I got holes in the floor
When I jump out to check things out,
I don't need to use the door
Cryin' please, don't make my life so hard
Come on little Mercedes, you're gonna wind up down the
wrecking yard

Took my baby out, to drive around in style
Went on down the road for just about a mile
My engine got so hot and my baby turned so cold
I heard her say as she walked away
"You're both getting much too old"
Cryin' please don't make my life so hard
Come on little Mercedes, you're gonna wind up
down the wrecking yard

NORTH WEST BLUES
(Dave Hole)

These North West Blues are gonna give you grief
and cause you plain
I've seen a grown many break down and cry, and I've seen
another man go insane

Have you ever been up North, sweating like a slave out in the
blazing sun?
It's 120 degrees in the shade Lord, and its 30 more out where
the work gets done

I'd walk on hot coals, I'd even drag me a ball and chain
But there's one thing I ain't gonna to
I ain't going back Lord, I ain't going back up North again.

BOOGALOO
(Dave Hole)

Doorbell ringing, late at night
If that's my baby, it's be alright
Leanne, Leanne, is that you child
Let yourself in, so we Boogaloo

Friday night, I took a change
I took my baby, to a dinner-dance
When that dance band began to play
My baby jumped up - here's what she said

"Here is what I wanna do, I just wanna Boogaloo with you
Honey now I swear it's true, I can't enough of that
Boogaloo"

Everyone sleeping late at night
There's a shadow creeping in the pale moonlight
I'm packed to leave, and I've come for you
Look out your window, it's Mister Boogaloo

Chorus

Love is like a one propped plane
Land any place and take off again
So if you want love in one place
You've got to give up being a flying ace

I'll buy a ring, 20 carat gold
I'll get you a ticket, to the Rolling Stones
If you promise, to be true
I'll even teach you, how to Boogaloo

Chorus
