Big Stick 06:26
Big Stick Lyric by Suzanne Rhatigan . Under the cosh again Taking it on the chin and I'm Taking it like a man Not some girly lady Catering to your whim bending over backwards Letting you break me in And your doing it with your big stick I tried to understand you bearing down with your big stick It makes you feel like a man carve another notch in your big stick Just because you can I wish I had a big stick Cos I would run you through I will get revenge on you When I have the power I'm intoxicated You think I'd empathise But I will show no mercy When I beat you back I'll be doing it with my big stick So try to understand me bearing down with my big stick It makes me feel like a man carve another notch on my big stick Just because I can I wish I had a big stick Under the cos again Where I want to be Taking it on the chin You won't break me Doing it with your big stick Cos I will understand you bearing down with your big stick It makes you feel like a man can carve another notch in your big stick Just because you can I will understand...

Can't Keep Up Lyric Suzanne Rhatigan I said you're amazing Say again you're amazing Your generosity overwhelming You're overwhelming overwhelming me Some times you give too much Some times you give too much Some times you give too much And I can't keep up I want to make a confession I'm not really complaining But when I see your brain engaging You're disengaging disengaging me Sometimes you think too much Sometimes you think too much Sometimes you think too much And I can't keep up I want you to know I'll meet each punch you throw Blow for blow for blow for blow Some times you know too much Some times you know too much Some times you know too much And I can't keep up Some times you love too much Some times you love too much Some times you love too much And I can't keep up Some times it's all too much Some times it's all too much Some times it's all too much And I can't keep up

Julianne 03:22
Julianne Lyric by Suzanne Rhatigan. Juli likes to embarrass us in restaurants No matter what she gets, it’s not what she wants Her steak’s too rare or it’s too well done Now she’s looking for a full refund But she doesn’t seem to grasp the way to ask (chorus) There she goes The centre of it all The life and soul of every one’s party Whether they like it or not Then she blows Hot and cold It’s not hard to understand Why nobody likes Julianne It’s even worse when we’re on holiday I mean before she gets off the plane Juli already has a really bad name And she only has her self to blame After all she’s been through half the crew (chorus) Stick your neck out you get your face slapped Give as good as you get and you give it all back Juli tries to make amends Well that’s one thing to say in her defence She says it’s ok, we can go out another day She knows she’s fair game That’s why we all love to hate Julianne Then she blow’s hot and cold it’s not hard to understand Why nobody likes Julianne

Stabbed 05:05
Stabbed Lyric by Suzanne Rhatigan Was some thing I said Really so bad Such a faux pas as to incur your wrath So thoroughly Some thing I did So deserving of this I'd take it all back if I known you'd react So suddenly One minute the world's at your dancing feet The next you're six feet deep Making food for worms as they twist and turn And devour me I've been stabbed I've been stabbed It feels like I've been stabbed In the back You're driving it home Through flesh into bone You whittle and carve another notch in my heart So easily One flash of your eyes And I'm slashed up inside Like Pedigree Chum when your laser-like tongue Lashes out at me You leave me for dead but you're not finished yet You've only one regret You just ignored at I scratched and clawed In self defence I've been stabbed.... The flowers and cards Amuse me for hours As I hover unknown in my celestial zone Observing you I must say you shine Your grief it's sublime I'm here in a daze a spiritual glaze Of martyrdom The thing I learned is you deserve To take my life Cos I'd rather be dead a victim till the end And I deserve to die I've been stabbed....

King Dong Lyric by Suzanne Rhatigan With your ring ding ding dong a ding a ling You wipe my mouth with your smile You make my day when you shoop swoop soup shoop a shimmy shake I want you to be here tonight Come over and tease me tonight You talk a good game But if it's all the same I'd like you to Show me what you can do With your big boop boop a boopy tube You knock me flat When you bend over spank spank a spanky splat You zap me back with your charge You get me set For your big bad extra exorcet Come over and blow me apart I'll take it all like a good girl I'll be so bad for you now You talk a good game But all the same I'd never fuss You want to make love With that rub dub shimmy shimmy Ooh la la You ring my bell with that diing dong ding dong You shake me up with your rub dub dub dub a love a duck

Envy of the Gods Lyric Suzanne Rhatigan Will we remember the moment that we met I hope we never forget This feeling Will we remember when we're old and grey Our very first day Together When we touch the world lights up Florescent our iridescent love shines When we kiss the chemistry Confounding all scientific minds Our welded heart a work of art To rival the wonders of the world But when we dance Flat on our backs Our love is the envy of the Gods Will we remember the moment that we met I hope we never forget This feeling...

Requiescat 04:39
Requiescat Lyric Suzanne Rhatigan In the morning when I wake calling out your name But there's no reply I reach across for your embrace The sparkle in your eye Gone but not forgotten Gone but not forgotten You live on in my heart in my song You live on... Every day I trace your steps praying at the end I will find you there Every day now since you went I'm following your scent Still hanging in the air Gone but not forgotten.
