Here are the lyrics for Cassmark's Homemade 3-Songer (2015):


*** Graceland *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Shimmy
Gimme
Fester
A thought that's left uncaught

Shimmy
Gimme
Fester
The thought that's left unsought

Shimmy
Gimme
Fester
A thought that's left uncaught
The thought that's left unsought
One thought let go untaught

Raping the readily willing
Inside there's still a fiend, a friend
I cannot force her to depend
On something left to lend

Nothing divine will come from ink
But still, I've learned to feel and think
I won't abuse her missing link
Come clean, I'll run the sink
Come clean, come clean along the

Wasteland
Graceland
Barred
Jarred
Masoned

Wasteland
Graceland
Barred
Jarred
Masoned

Raping the readily willing
Inside there's still a fiend, a friend
I cannot force her to depend
On something left to lend

Nothing divine will come from ink
But still, I've learned to feel and think
I won't abuse her missing link
Come clean, I'll run the sink

Shimmy
Gimme
Fester
A thought that's left uncaught

Shimmy
Gimme
Fester
A thought that's left uncaught
The thought that's left unsought
One thought let go untaught


*** Chic-A-Cherry Cola *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Calling compromise
Galling in disguise
Keen to ventilate
Prone to venerate

Stalling the reprise
Falling to arise
As it be
Inside me

Calling compromise
Galling in disguise
Keen to ventilate
Prone to venerate

Stalling the reprise
Falling to arise
Won to three for
Won to three for
Abhor

If you had a thought
Well, I would not ammend it
I'd take a little time
And try to comprehend it
In the base of my spine
I might even defend it
Chic-a-cherry cola
And the right to have some spit

Anywhere and everywhere
I'd tell you not to quit
Even when you're thinking
You're a stupid piece of shit
Even when you're there
Still rocking out to Lit
You're your own worst enemy
But too timid to admit it

Timing makes the day
And you're thinking of tomorrow
Waiting on some pay
That someone else might borrow
Cuchi cuchi cuchi
As you wish that you were Charo
Peaking at the top
But it's no Kilimanjaro

Giving a thumbs up
While looking at your big toe
Raise that middle finger
When you're told what you should know
I'd settle on advice
But we all come to outgrow
Ones that may have been there
The pastime apropos

Implies guise
Even the best of lies
Tries demise
Even when they are wise
Implies guise
Even the best of lies
Tries demise
Even when they are wise

Use your own mind
One of a kind
Still unrefined
When thoughts combined

Calling compromise
Galling in disguise
Keen to ventilate
Prone to venerate

Stalling the reprise
Falling to arise
Won to three for
Won to three for
Abhor

If you had a thought
I would not amend it
Take a little time
Try to comprehend it
Base of my spine
Might even defend it
Chic-a-cherry cola
Right to some spit

Timing makes the day
And you're thinking of tomorrow
Waiting on some pay
That someone else might borrow
Cuchi cuchi cuchi
As you wish that you were Charo
Peaking at the top
But it's no Kilimanjaro

Giving a thumbs up
While looking at your big toe
Raise that middle finger
When you're told what you should know
I'd settle on advice
But we all come to outgrow
Ones that may have been there
The pastime apropos

Implies guise
Even the best of lies
Tries demise
Even when they are wise
Implies guise
Even the best of lies
Tries demise
Even when they are wise

Use your own mind
One of a kind
Still unrefined
When thoughts combined


*** Silverback *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Prairie Mary
Phantom fairy
Weary wary
Cheery cherry

Liquidated
Liquefied
Implicated
Liquidized

Celebrated
Rationalized
Confiscated
Nationalized

Dilapidated
Vilified
Masturbated
Improvised

Human nature
Civilized
Liquidated
Fried

All to sing along
As a throng
Whether right or wrong

Cause you are
Superstar
In the lifelong

Right where you belong
Bang a gong
As you sing the song

Cause you are
Quite bizarre
To the unstrong

All to sing along
As a throng
Whether right or wrong

Cause you are
Superstar
In the lifelong

Right where you belong
Bang a gong
As you sing the song

Cause you are
Quite bizarre
To the unstrong

Silverback
In wolfpack
Subsidized
On attack
Stepped upon
Railroad track
Breaking up
Mother's back
