Track Name: A song called Wanda
A song called Wanda

Hard headed woman, dressed in white
Cause of trouble, puts up a fight
She is rolling with the big boys, every night
She is a fujiyama mama, smoking dynamite

She started playing country, but left the barn
(who’s barn, what barn, my barn)
“Let’s have a party tonight!”
She is a fujiyama mama, smoking dynamite

She is the queen
She is the queen
She is the queen of rockabilly
She is the queen of rockabilly
She is the queen of rockabilly, she is rock and royalty!

Honky Tonky Joe, came knocking at her door
Then stupid cupid had another King in store
She was tongtied
She was tongtied
She is a fujiyama, smoking dynamite

She is the queen
She is the queen
She is the queen of rockabilly
She is the queen of rockabilly
She is the queen of rockabilly, she is rock and royalty!
Track Name: Raging Cadillac
Raging Cadillac

In the darker part of twilight there’s a shape that looms at the horizon
There comes a dusty red car ready to be stealing the silence
Her boots click through the diner, he is there, a man that they call ‘wanted’
Handsome as the heavens, dark eyed, big and strong
She knew all along

Raging Cadillac
Leaving the track
Raging Cadillac
Why does she wear black
Raging Cadillac
Leaving the track
She is out to make a wreck

Stealing, drinking, threats he did it all. He and Bobby Carper
From Dallas up to Kansas was theirs, she was the next thing to conquer
She said: ‘Go on boy, I’m yours, take me home and I’ll get you some’
She got him some for sure, she took his brand new car
And she hit the road

Raging Cadillac
Leaving the track
Raging Cadillac
Why does she wear black
Raging Cadillac
Leaving the track
She is out to make a wreck

In the lighter part of twilight he's laying low
Hungover and sour he hears a loud [knock] at the door
They told him after all those years these shackles they are yours
And outside stood his Cadillac, smothered in Bobby Carpers blood

Raging Cadillac
Leaving the track
Raging Cadillac
Why does she wear black
Raging Cadillac
Leaving the track
She is gone to never come back
Track Name: Push & Pull
Push & Pull

Please get out of my mind
You're wasting my time
Nobody knows what it took
But you got me hooked

Leave me here to be
The one I want to be baby
Love has got nothing to do
With me and you

Hey! What's a girl to do?
Oh! With a boy like you?
Hey! What am I to do?
This ain't love, but yet I stay
To push and pull you away

We are taking too long
To see that this is wrong
Why does it feel so good?
Maybe we should?

Hey! What's a girl to do?
Oh! With a boy like you?
Hey! What am I to do?
This ain't love, but yet I stay
To push and pull you away

When you pull me closer
It all just fades away
When the pushing's over
The game is off to play
Let me stay

Hey! What's a girl to do?
Oh! With a boy like you?
Hey! What am I to do?
This ain't love, but yet I stay
To push and pull you away

Hey! What's a girl to do?
Oh! With a boy like you?
Hey! What am I to do?
This ain't love, but yet I stay
This ain't love, but yet I stay
Track Name: Like a Wolf
Like a Wolf

I'm waiting for the sun to go down baby
I've waited far too long to get out of bed
Praying for the lights to go out baby
So no one sees me when I wander through town

Oh at night
At night
You will find me
You'll find me howling like a wolf in the night

Now you're crawling like a dog and I'm
Howling like a wolf baby

You're waiting, insatiable craving
You have waited far too long to get out of my way
Playing when the lights have gone out baby
But I have seen you at my wanders through town

So hard
Oh I'm so damn hard to please
Everytime you, you'll find me hunting the dark baby
When I am howling like a wolf in the night

Now you're crawling like a dog and I'm
Howling like a wolf baby
Track Name: Ramblin'
Ramblin'

When the day breaks
And the night aches
We're ain't going home

My Mojo rolls
My skin is soft
And I am on a stroll
The full moon shines
The night is right
To do some rock 'n roll

When we start ramblin'
When we start ramblin'
You better hide or leave this town
When we start ramblin'
When we start ramblin'
Ain't nobody safe no more

So when you see us no good girls
Are entering your ranch
Don’t fall out of the ugly tree
With your granny slappin' hands
We're just hungry for some fine old tunes
To make you people dance

When we start ramblin'
When we start ramblin'
You better hide or leave this town
When we start ramblin'
When we start ramblin'
Ain't nobody safe no more

Gussied up, high cotton dressed
The honky tonk it flows
Then smokey and his bears show up
To make us pack and go
Truckin' on and loaded up
We’ll continue our show

When we start ramblin'
When we start ramblin'
You better hide or leave this town
When we start ramblin'
When we start ramblin'
Ain't nobody safe no more
