Art’s horns, Albert’s killer lead, Channon’s monster bass and Andy’s drum awesomeness really helped me finally get a decent recording of one my earlier songs. Thanks bros! EYES OF BROWN Words and Music: Jim Jenkin There are sometimes baby, sometimes when I look at you. There are certain things, yeah baby, certain things I want to do. Girl you know it so you tease, we talk about the birds and the bees You shy away from my longing stare Come on, come on baby let me show you there When I go out to look around I rely on my eyes of brown Closely examine what I’ve found My eyes of brown have never let me down I’ve got the hands but baby you tell the time I hold the gold cup baby but you’re the one who pours the wine If you want a puppet there no strings on me Why should I sit home while you run free? Oh baby don’t you hesitate, I don’t know much more I can take When I go out to look around I rely on my eyes of brown Closely examine what I’ve found My eyes of brown have never let me down (Albert’s killer lead break) When I go out to look around I rely on my eyes of brown Closely examine what I’ve found My eyes of brown have never let me down ©1990, 2017 TBMedia ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

It´s just a rainy day It´s just a rainy day. Another rainy day People getting wet by walking down in the rain Heavy drops are falling umbrellas completely in vain All the flowers need, and the peas need, all the apples need, and trees and birds and bees, we all need sometimes ...a little rain All the roses need, and the cattle needs, and the apples need, and trees and birds and bees, we all need sometimes ...a little rain It´s just a rainy day. It´s just a rainy day It´s just a rainy day. Another rainy day People going crazy by dancing in the pouring rain Spending time together in a music summer jam It´s just a rainy day. It´s just a rainy day It´s just a rainy day. Another rainy day It´s just a rainy day. It´s just a rainy day It´s just a rainy day. It´s just a rainy day It´s just a rainy day.

In The Fall Composed and performed by Jim Jenkin I was going to through some cassettes and I found this nugget. The 4 track master was eaten in the machine back in the 90's when I recorded it and I thought it was lost forever. Forgive the fidelity... it was a rough mix and unlike many of my cassettes, this one didn't hold up as well as most. Still, I think it's worth posting.

In Venice… where charming water channels flow Who will save the world? In Venice … holy dead lagoon By exploring all your facets I´m getting lost and scared Wake up from your lulling sleep but you are lost its not me Venice charming water channels Wake up from your lulling sleep blending illusion you´re smelling, but you are lost its not me Who will save the world?

This time, it was her turn to make the video. :-) We hope that you'll enjoy it. Peace! THE WAY TO THE LIGHT Lyrics: Melani Cholie Music: Jim Jenkin Roses without a thorn, surviving in the storm Lay down with the wind in your morning, riding on a chord into your day See the city grows around, it swallows your way You try to swim in the race but you fail to enter the fray Hoooohooohoo on the way to the light Hoooohooohoo as I sailed out of fight Hoooohooohooo I feel the pulse in my vein Hoooohooohooo and now I am flying again In this crazy burned out city, I was fighting all alone, a crazy race thru space and time, demons abound All the way thru crowded streets, hurt and smashed to ground , turning down relying on your own sound Way down with the waves into the ocean carry your dream throughout to the stars You can´t hide the way of endless desperation And you can´t stand if they tearing your roots out of the ground Hoooohooohoo on the way to the light Hoooohooohoo as I sailed out of fight Hoooohooohooo I feel the pulse in my vein Hoooohooohooo and now I am flying again Roses without a thorn, survived in the storm Lay down with the wind in your morning, riding on a chord into your day. Hoooohooohoo on the way to the light Hoooohooohoo as I sailed out of fight Hoooohooohooo I feel the pulse in my vein Hoooohooohooo and now I am flying again Into the light Into the light Into the light Into the light ©2016 TBMedia and Melanie Cholie ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

He said that he could prove that God really was American I’m waiting for the day to change I’m sitting here waiting, waiting for that sunny day to change my ways, but I never do. Rules of religion, laws of the lamb, Won’t God accept for the way that I am? Not if I listen to this TV preacher man, who just got caught having a scandalous one night stand.Is that what his God demands? He said the Eagle must spread it’s wings straighten up and fly right He said that he could to prove that God really was an American I’m waiting for the day to change I’m sitting here waiting, waiting for that sunny day to change my ways, but I never do, I wish it would Maybe some autumn evening, when the days are in their last... A man comes from the sunset, he’s a legend from the past. Some heads will turn in wonder, others hang their heads in shame... When the man who knows the answer, comes to stake to His claim. Do you know his name? Do you know his name? Do you know his name? He said the Eagle must spread it’s wings straighten up and fly right. He said that we’re all wrong because God is not an American Oh no

SILVER MOON Words and melody by Melani Cholie Music By Jim Jenkin I didn´t sense that you will leave to walk along the silver moon But I remember I was told that one day you will be gone All those years I trusted Grandpa´s love next door I was guarded and things were always safe I felt fine, I felt your love down to the core your wisdom kept this child strong and brave When your skin turned into pale for sailing to the silver moon You were shifted by the light, you left your tax behind I ´ll make sure you know my love will never die What else to share to ease to your final way When you walk on you´ll reach the end of space time I´m gonna hold you but I can´t help but cry OHOHOOH – OHOHOOH – OHOHOOH -- OHOHOOH You won´t wake up in the morning light You will never share my time again My little hand in yours protecting as my guide Don´t walk too fast cause I am by your side We share so much likeness, we were never apart The strength inside of you, shone right through The peace you gave me, knowing you would always love me Your little girl forever, it´s the way it will always stay OHOHOOH – OHOHOOH – OHOHOOH -- OHOHOOH I didn´t sense that you will leave to walk along the silver moon But I remember I was told that one day you will be gone All those years I trusted Grandpa´s love next door I was guarded and things were always safe I felt fine, I felt your love down to the core your wisdom kept this child strong and brave Melani: lead and backing vocals Jim: All instruments, backing vocal Video produced and edited by Jim Jenkin Copyright 2016 Tbmedia and Melani Cholie All rights reserved

GOOD GOD: WHiTEBREAD LIVE August 1987 Some videos clips from a very ambitious show we put on in the summer of 1987. This was the first time we played this song live, having only come with it a few months before. We had a 40 ft projections screen behind us, Two 20 foot screens on the side, full light show. The sound is from a 2 track cassette recorder with 2 PZM mics next to the sound mixing stage. It took us weeks of planning, and days of setting up... only to have the cops come and shut us down after about 8 songs. Forgive the lame VHS quality and the super 8 footage that was shot during the same few weeks. CHANJAM, as it became to be known as because it was in Chan's natural amphitheater backyard, is the performance that truly gave birth to WHiTEBREAD and got us motivated to do our first big push for gigs in early 1988. Great times with great friends. I hope you'll enjoy this trip in the wayback machine Jim Jenkin: Lead vocal, Lead Guitar Channon Reed: Bass, Backing vocal Andy Gay: Drums, backing vocal Albert Desoto: Rhythm Guitar Jim Cavanaugh: Percussion Written by Jenkin and Reed. © 2016, TBMEDIA, all rights reserved.

GREEN GIRL Words by Simian Crease Music By Jim Jenkin Simian Crease: lead vocal, accent guitar Jim Jenkin: backing vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards Art Owens: Horns Andy Gay: Drums This is the one about the green girl who came to me in a silver ring, girl. She was levitating over concrete when I asked if she'd let me take her for a twirl. She said I only came here for a lollipop but I took one too many now I can't stop, oh. I only came here for a lollipop but I took one too many now I can't stop, oh. Can't stop my green girl, green girl. Green girl, green girl. My green girl, green girl. Green girl... Let's take a twirl... Beneath the fountainette, a mountain and a stream. As small as we could get, two garden figurines... I only came here for a lollipop but I took one too many now I can't stop, oh. Wanted a little now I got a lot. Yeah, one too many now I can't stop, oh. Can't stop my green girl, green girl. Green girl, green girl. My green girl, green girl. Green girl... Let's take a twirl... This is the one about the green girl. My little fevered dream girl. Beneath the fountainette, a mountain and a stream. As small as we could get, garden figurines... I only came here for a lollipop but I took one too many now I can't stop. Much too much and I can't hit that spot. Yeah, I took one too many now I can't stop, oh. Can't stop my green girl, green girl. Green girl, green girl. My green girl, green girl. Green girl. Let's take a twirl... My green girl, green girl. Green girl, green girl. My green girl, green girl. Green girl... Let's take a twirl...

BY THIS RIVER Composed by Brian Eno Performed by Jim Jenkin Brian Eno will probably be remembered most for his work as a founding member of Roxy Music and as a producer who worked with icons like David Bowie, U2, and Talking Heads. But in the mid-1970s, when progressive rock bands like Yes, ELP, Genesis, and Rush were trying to fit as many notes as possible into their songs, Brian Eno was playing an important role in the modern minimalist music scene. Albums like Another Green World and Before and After Science weren't being played on the radio, but music critics were well aware of this man's genius, which could be best summed up with the quote, "the amount of notes you play isn't important, it's the space between them that counts." That quote had a huge impact on me as a self-taught beginner. I thought to myself, “Hmm, maybe I can make music, too," and started writing and recording my own music with whatever instruments I could get my hands on, overdubbing one cassette tape over another. It was pure noise, but also pure fun. Since discovering Eno in high school (thanks to Carl Cirillo), I have recorded over 200 songs, but only about a dozen of them have been covers. If you're looking for flashy musicianship, this ain't it. I added two simple keyboard lines to his song because it's my feeling that if you're going to record a cover, you may as well add a little bit of yourself to the mix. Brian Eno is still a major player in the industry today, and still a major influence on my music. I hope you'll enjoy my tribute to him.

Wined and Dined Written by Syd Barrett This was a cover song I was working on with my friend Peter Papp who become too ill to deliver his tracks. Pete died a few weeks ago from cancer and I wanted to finish this song as a tribute to the only Barrett fan I've met that loves Syd as much as I do. Rest in peace Pappy. We miss you bro! Visit his page: http://fandalism.com/ozpappy I want to thank Tedd VanWager for stepping in and taking Pete's place on this and to my old pal Andy for his solid drum work and support. Jim Jenkin: R.

Take a Powder: Written and produced by Jim Jenkin Jim Jenkin: lead and backing vocals, guitars Andy Gay: backing vocal, drums, congas Albert DeSoto: R. Guitar Synth, backing vocal. Channon Red: bass Oh so you're spiraling downward into the white sand that started the slide Falling faster and faster dependent on a drug to get you by Take a powder young man Your whole life is down the tubes Blew your week's pay on cocaine It should've never happened to you Occasional use became reckless abuse You hung yourself in toot's tight noose.. You knew better but you didn't care... You have no motivation, dirty clothes and greasy hair Crime wave come they come in a flood Find your buddy in a puddle of blood Downtown the scene ain't too pretty Life's a drag in this tired city, so. Take a powder young man Whatever happened to you? In between the toes, no one knows That should hide your bloody nose You were still OK when you used a blade You had it all, you had it made You knew that spikes meant addiction,but it's over now... cocaine conviction No sense of purpose, sinking below the surface You just can't seem to get a grip, You're hanging on by your figertips... More white bags ... riches to rags More white bags ... riches to rags More white bags ... riches to rags More white bags ... riches to rags Hoping to break from your prison cell You couldn't cope with the dope Now you're stuck in a deep, damp well Until someone throws you down a rope Take a powder

GOOD GOD Lyrics: Jim Jenkin Music: Jim Jenkin and Channon Reed Music and video produced by Jim Jenkin Jim Jenkin: Lead vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, guitar synth and percussion Andy Gay: backing vocals, drums, percussion Channon Reed: Bass Albert Desoto: Accent Rhythm guitar When I've got nothing, I got nothing else to do ... I can relax to TV's panoramic views I'm up at 6am, to see the flag unfurl Through my electronic box, well, I can see the world Politics on TV begin to drag me down, man I've got the longest face and I wear the saddest frown But nothing's sadder, sadder than my blues, with the exception of this morning's news Good god I get information on the latest confrontations, please stay tuned for a live demonstration My television tells me all I need to know, if I don't like what I see, well I just change the show. I see little Tommy, little Sally, little Joe. I see them on their little kiddie show. Comical commercials, buy this paper towel. You buy them all, it's Tylenol, what's your poison pal? It's a Declaration of a new kind of war. Poison every item, every shelf, every store. But nothing's sadder, sadder than my blues with the exception of the news at noon. Declaration of a new kind of war. Poison every item, every shelf, every store. But nothing's sadder, sadder than my blues with the exception of the evening news Good god Now my day is over and all my work is through, I can relax to TV's panoramic view. Late night I watch Jimmy, sometimes I watch Dave or switch over to the Kramdens to see Ralph rant and rave! I see a man of cloth; he's wearing fancy suits, while Joel Olsteen prays for his loot. I'm flipping through the channels, video eyed, when I saw old yeller die well I just cried and cried. No matter how I try I can't break it loose. I'm like a junky, an alkie needs his "juice" 'cuz nothing's sadder, sadder than my blues, with the exception of tomorrow's news Good god! Good god! Good god! Good god!

Somehow You Knew Words and Music: Andy Gay Produced and arranged by Jim Jenkin One from Andy’s “unfinished folder”. We recorded the backing tracks on an eight track in 1997. Then, like so many songs, it never went any further. This is another example of how great Fanda is because Through Fanda, we met Jay and Pat whose contributions made this song possible to finish. Thanks to all involved! Seven musicians from three countries made this possible. How cool is that? We hope you enjoy this one! Jay Lemay: Lead vocal Andy Gay: Lead and backing vocals, keyboards, drums Jim Jenkin: Backing vocals, rhythm guitar, percussion Albert Desoto: rhythm guitar Ken Sirulnick: rhythm guitar, lead fills Channon Reed: Bass Pat Clark: Harmonica Summer nights were wild and free, rainy days we'd hang around and watch TV You whispered to me something from a movie the way you said it, it still gets through to me Getting ready you'd sing a song, I fell in love with you right there putting your makeup on Midnight, candlelight rooftop picnics, you'd go alone to the latest chick flicks Somehow you knew that I'd be waiting for you Somehow you knew just exactly what I'd do I'd never say that you didn't care I think you did cuz you were always there But you left and caught me off guard You never knew that I took it so hard You had me in the palm of your hand You had your fun, now I understand Got a bottle, your parents gone, We seemed to make a big impression on the neighbors lawn Sunset, seaside, wet sand, tan lines, you said you'd meet me by the boardwalk beer sign Somehow you knew that I'd be waiting for you Somehow you knew just exactly what I'd do

TURN MY SCREWS Lyrics: Simian Crease Music: Jim Jenkin From the "road not taken" file... lol! This was one of the directions I was thinking about taking "Fix Your Broken Parts" in ... after Simian and I finished that one up, I sent him this track. He came up with the idea to use this track as a sequel, wrote some new lyrics, added his magical phaser guitar bits and lead break and s and asked his lovely wife Reyna sing along with us. We hope you enjoy it! Reyna Miles: Lead voca lSimian Crease: Lead vocal, guitars Jim Jenkin: Backing vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards, percussion, sound fx Turn My Screws Your lips are cherry red. Oh, I want to kiss you .Hair so black and wiry. And my skin is slick and pale blue. Your mind is open, too. Oh, I want to fix you. Yes, my heart is broken. I can hear it in your heartbeat,slow and out of rhythm. I could use a little tweaking. Oh, my mind is open.And I want you to fix me… Turn my screws, turn my screws,turn my screws. Just one kiss and I am fixed. Turn my screws…Ooh-ooh-ooh… For so long it’s been a blur. You suffered through the humdrum. Biding my time alone,waiting here for someone. A little, plastic lover to save you from your boredom. Just a twist of your wrist. And a bit of concentration. A kiss will do the trick. Oh, all these new sensations.So soft and synthetic.You are my new fixation… Turn my screws, turn my screws,turn my screws. Just one kiss and I am fixed. Turn my screws…I know what I have to do… Turn my screws, turn my screws,turn my screws. Just one twist of your wrist. Turn my screws…Ooh-ooh-ooh… Your lips are cherry red. Oh, I want to kiss you. Skin is slick and pale blue. My mind is open, too. So take me to the tower. Oh, and I will fix you. Turn my screws, turn my screws,turn my screws. Just one twist of your wrist. Turn my screws…I know what I have to do… Turn my screws, turn my screws,turn my screws. Can’t resist this tryst, just fix me.Turn my screws…I know what I have to do…Ooh-ooh-ooh…

I'm deeply honored that Art asked me to participate and that he trusted me with his baby and I grateful to my bro Andy for his help! I hope you all enjoy it. Peace!

Another one from the "unfinished folder". One of the first songs I ever wrote. I rerecorded it years ago, with very sophomoric lyrics... gave to Simian. Looky what he done! Fix Your Broken Parts Words by Simian Crease Music By Jim Jenkin Simian Crease: Lead and backing vocals, guitar Jim Jenkin: Backing vocals, keyboards, percussion When the time is right I'll take you to the tower. Under green, fluorescent lights, fritter away the hours. Touch your plastic skin, imagine where you've been... You came to me in pieces, shrink-wrapped and suspended. Just like Jesus, you were damaged in shipment. O, object of my affection, this will be your resurrection... (chorus) Fix your, fix your, fix your broken parts. But I'll leave your little mind open... Life is difficult, soon you'll understand. So many obstacles. Hoops and wires and quicksand. For now, you're just a project, my broken, plastic object... I suppose I'm broken, too. No one here to fix me. Broken, just like you. Perhaps one day you will be the one who turns my screws. 'Til then I know just what to do... (chorus) Fix your, fix your, fix your broken parts. But I'll leave your little mind open... I'll take you to the tower, under green, fluorescent lights. Put you back together. I will make it right. So much yet to discover, my broken, plastic lover... (chorus) Fix your, fix your, fix your broken parts. But I'll leave your little mind open...

Composed by Jim Jenkin and Pierre Rosique sent Pierre this track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqPXBSpdOhw&list=UUiQX7JVZ3LVqPNrHNUplK4 And he added his unique genius to it and took to a while other level! Thank my friend, I'm so greatly honored to be part of this collab with you! Jim Jenkin: Keyboards Pierre Rosique: Arturia Origin Synthesizeur. Isotope Iris for the ambiantal structures and Alchemy for the Choir. Vox former and Isotope Nectar for the vocal dynamic and spacey effects This represents a two firsts for me... its the first time I ever completely handed over a song to another person and it;s the first song I have ever appeared on that I didn't produce entirely. What a liberating feeling and experience! THANK YOU PIERRE! I remember happy days. My mother held a merry-go-round, the lover’s merry-go-round. It began its fantastic round in my awakening, and I saw in the blue of my mother eyes cross the most wonderful objects and characters. My preference went to the blue horse which I abandoned by sometimes for a silvery rocket stamped with fallen stars. I remember happy days My mother went with these beautiful blue eyes on the blue sea there. I see her leaving on this yellow boat enhanced in its bow of dolphin painted in the fine gold. The merry-go-round always turns. We heard its melancholic jingle expressed by the affected machine. An old sir sits on the blue horse. He looks at me with a shy smile. But I’m not sure his empty glance is for me. I remember the happy days.

I know, You know Written and produced by Jim Jenkin I sent Jay this song, he gave me tons of ideas for melodies. I wrote some lyrics and Jay added his magical voice to them and some nice guitar fills along the way. I added my vocal to his ... hoping not to ruin his in the process. :-) Jay Lemay: vocals, funky electric fills and tasty classical guitar. Jim Jenkin: vocals, guitars, bass, keyboards, drum programming, percussion. I've loved you all my life took another wife... and my sorrow clearly shows I know, you know that it's all about the show Now we just pretend pretending we're just friends... and we hope that no one knows It doesn't matter anyway you're so far away What more needs to be said? I sleep with a stranger in my bed You were my first dance never thought I had a chance... and then decades slipped away When I came around you were looking to be found... and we both changed our ways So I wrote this song, full knowing that it's wrong... I just can't help myself I know, you know that my love would surely grow It doesn't matter anyway you're so far away What more needs to be said? I sleep with a stranger in my bed I'm looking so far ahead guided by your smile in my head As I hit my stride, you always say goodbye... my disappointment is hard to hide I watch you disappear, the picture is so clear... or some lyric just as snide I could not resist a kiss from your soft lips... How did I ever let you go? I know, you know that it's time to let it go time to go our separate ways we'll meet again someday What more needs to be said? I sleep with a stranger in my bed goodbye my love goodbye my love

I’m Waiting (demo version) Words and Music by Jim Jenkin I wrote this song and recorded this 4 track cassette version WAY back in 1989. Inspired by a Ferlinghetti poem. An updated version is in the works. Jim Jenkin: guitars, vocals …. Andy Gay: Drums… Channon Reed: Bass... Jim Cavanaugh: Congas … Albert Desoto: Lead solo I’m waiting for the day to change I’m sitting here waiting for the day to change my ways I read a book of fables, Good News for Modern Man, about a man who knew the answer, man who had the master plan… If you understand He said the Eagle must spread it’s wings straighten up and fly right. He said that they’d try to prove that God really was American I’m waiting for the day to change I’m sitting here waiting, waiting for that sunny day to change my ways, but I never do. Rules of religion, laws of the lamb, Won’t God accept for the way that I am? Not if I listen to this TV preacher man, who just got caught having a scandalous one night stand.Is that what his God demands? He said the Eagle must spread it’s wings straighten up and fly right He said that he could to prove that God really was an American I’m waiting for the day to change I’m sitting here waiting, waiting for that sunny day to change my ways, but I never do, I wish it would Maybe some autumn evening, when the days are in their last... A man comes from the sunset, he’s a legend from the past. Some heads will turn in wonder, others hang their heads in shame... When the man who knows the answer, comes to stake to His claim. Do you know his name? Do you know his name? Do you know his name? He said the Eagle must spread it’s wings straighten up and fly right. He said that we’re all wrong because God is not an American Oh no

Jay Lemay: Lead vocal and guitar Jim Jenkin: Backing vocals, guitars, bass and percussion Andy Gay: backing vocal and drums I'm sorry I came dressed so bad My guts are on the outside, I wear my heart on my sleeve. Nothing seemed to jive. I feel sorrier for me, than I do for you But I'll be ok No deposit, no return looking for a custom made fit in an off the rack world I'm sorry I came dressed so bad My guts are on the outside, I wear my heart on my sleeve. Nothing seemed to jive. I'll be ok, someday I'll be ok No deposit, no return looking for a custom made fit in an off the rack world

Let's Pretend Music By Jim Jenkin Lyrics By Simian Crease and Jim Jenkin. Jim Jenkin: vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass, percussion, drum programming and sound fx. Simian Crease: vocals, guitar I wrote this song and had the chorus all worked out about a decade ago ... and then it sat. I sent it to Simian and not only did he pick up on my theme instantly but he also wrote and sang the verses, adding some tasty guitar licks while he was at it. Thanks Simian, I couldn't have finished this without all your help! You like me 'cause, just like you, I don't like myself. My father's nose, my mother's woes. Oh, you see the parallels. But we don't have to breathe this air, the city smoke and deep despair. Throw away your worries and your cares and let's pretend... Let's pretend we're in a submarine, on a voyage to the bottom of the sea. Maybe we'll find ourselves a treasure to divvy up between you and me. You can pretend to be a mermaid 'cause you're my chicken of the sea. And I'll pretend to have the fish at my command, just like Aquaman... When I was young I saw myself alone forevermore. My backyard wrapped around the world and right to my front door. But I've grown older and I see that misery loves company and I like you 'cause you're like me and neither of us are who we want to be and... Let's pretend we're on a TV show, or maybe on the silver screen. Making love like the movie stars acting out our favorite scenes. Maybe you can win the Oscar with a wink and some sleight of hand. And maybe I can pull it all together and win the role of leading man... You like me 'cause I'm like you and I like you 'cause you're like me and a spinning wheel, or planets reeling... reeling from their own gravity and maybe everything that felt so wrong was right all along and, if that's the case, then close your eyes and baby, let's pretend... Let's pretend we're in a submarine, on a voyage to the bottom of the sea. Maybe we'll find ourselves a treasure to divvy up between you and me. You can pretend to be a mermaid 'cause you're my chicken of the sea. And I'll pretend to have the fish at my command, just like Aquaman... Let's pretend we're on a TV show, or maybe on the silver screen. Making love like the movie stars acting out our favorite scenes. Maybe you can win the Oscar with a wink and some sleight of hand. And maybe I can pull it all together and win the role of leading man... Let's pretend...

YOU LOOK NICE TODAY MUSIC AND WORDS BY JIM JENKIN and PAUL DiORIO One of my all time favs to play live back in the day. We usually saved for our last number and went crazy! She walked by and I said hi But then I wondered why, why, why After I try, try, try, try, try, try, try Hey, you know? Me? No, not really. Hey, you know? NO!!!! I saw her one day on the golf course She smiled a smile that was well, kinda f-f-f-forced She don’t even give me a glance ‘cuz I’m not worth the chance I don’t even warrant her arrest though I try, try, try Well I try my fucking best Hey, you know? Me? No, not really. Hey, you know? HECK NO!!!! Your cheeks look rosy, they’re usually flush They look good, are you wearing blush? Turn down your lips, they’re red as brick I’m I mistaking or is that lipstick? I’ve never seen a girl wear so much mascara You look nice today are you wearing make up Tara? Why do you look better, I don’t know I like the color of your eye shadow Revlon, Max Factor, Maybelline You wear more make up than any girl I’ve even seen It’s not that you looked bad before but I know what make up is for You’re a lot like Tammy Fay You cake up, the make up, everyday You use a putty knife to fill those pores You spend your time in front of drug stores When you look in the mirror what do you see? Does the mirror crack ‘cuz you am ugly? Your face could gag a maggot When I look you I think “fucking bag it, go home” Revlon, Max Factor, Maybelline You wear more make up than any girl I’ve even seen It’s not that you looked bad before but I know what make up is for Jim Jenkin: lead and backing vocals, guitars Andy Gay: backing vocals, drums Channon Reed: backing vocal, bass Produced by Jim Jenkin © 1990, 2014 TBMEDIA All rights reserved

GOLDENHAIR WORDS AND MUSIC: JIM JENKIN (Inspired by a poem by James Joyce) Now the mood is set, the candle is lit Gentle breeze whispers in Flame dances with it I close the book, I read no more Watching the fire dance on the wall Now the mood is set, the candle is lit Gentle breeze whispers in Flame dances with it I close the book, I read no more Watching the fire dance on the wall Goldenhair, goldenhair Pull the switch on my electric chair I’m only happy to be sitting there Goldenhair, goldenhair I run with the dark horses And play fetch with the underdogs You know I’ll make it ‘cuz I’m clever enough to fake it Oh yeah In times of trouble I can heed the early warning There’ll be no rain chilled, coffee spilled mornings Now the mood is set, the candle is lit Gentle breeze whispers in Flame dances with it I close the book, I read no more Watching the fire dance on the wall Now the mood is set, the candle is lit Gentle breeze whispers in Flame dances with it I close the book, I read no more Watching the fire dance on the wall Jim Jenkin: Lead and backing vocals, Acoustic guitar, keyboards, percussion Andy Gay: Backing vocal, drums, congas Albert DeSoto: Backing vocal, Bass, Electric guitars Produced by Jim Jenkin ©2000, 2014 TBMEDIA All rights reserved

ENOUGH SAID: Written and Produced By Jim Jenkin What do you want from me? I’ll try my best to fill your fantasy Tell me your secrets, tell me your lies As we dance the dance called compromise Tell me that you want me, tell me that you need me Tell me that you don’t want me to leave You want to take me home, so let’s go. What do you want from me, when you don’t know me at all? Tell me what do you want from me when I don’t know you at all? What do you want from me, when you don’t know me at all? You don’t know me at all Lonely housewives numb their pain, hard working hubby working late again She won’t spend another night alone. Daytime talk fills her head with images of young men in her bed If Oprah likes it, enough said… enough said Why do we believe in them, when they don’t us at all? Tell me why should we believe I them, when they don’t know us at all? Why do we do believe in them when they don’t know at all? They don’t know us at all Tell me that you want me, tell me that you need me Tell me that you don’t want me to leave You want to take me home, so let’s go. What do you want from me, when you don’t know me at all? Tell me what do you want from me when I don’t know you at all? What do you want from me, when you don’t know me at all? You don’t know me at all Psychic hotlines claim her life, the guy next door buys a Russian wife It’s a wonder we can talk at all. Cover girls and the games they play, lose 10 pounds 10 easy ways If Oprah likes it, enough said ... enough said Why do we believe in them, when they don’t us at all? Tell me why should we believe I them, when they don’t know us at all? Why do we do believe in them when they don’t know at all? They don’t know us at all They don’t know us at all They don’t know us at all They don’t know us at all So why should we believe in them? Why do we believe in them? Why should we believe in them?

THOSE U.V.’S AREN’T TOO GROOVY LYRICS: JIM JENKIN MUSIC: JIM JENKIN and CHANNON REED A MUCH BETTER ENCODE CAN BE FOUND HERE:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCQmyq9TTLE Listen here check it out Don’t raise your eyebrow in doubt Look around, can you see the signs Can you see the sun up high through the dirty skies Smog in my eyes It’s getting very hard to breathe anymore The weatherman says I better stay indoors Those U.V.’s aren’t too groovy He said to me the other day I can’t go outside and play Poison drifts in from the highway It’s getting very hard to breathe anymore The weatherman says I better stay indoors Those U.V.’s aren’t too groovy You haven’t got the slightest clue do you? Do you know, do you know, do you? Our days are numbered, ozone’s through Those U.V.’s aren’t too groovy You can run but you can’t hide The air epidemic spreads worldwide I can’t spend another day inside It’s getting very hard to breathe anymore The weatherman says I better stay indoors The atmosphere is not too clear We’re poisoning each hemisphere If people only knew about CO2 and all the damage it can do It’s getting very hard to breathe anymore The weatherman says I better stay indoors Those U.V.’s aren’t too groovy You haven’t got the slightest clue do you? Do you know, do you know, do you? Our days are numbered, ozone’s through Music produced by Jim Jenkin Music video produced, directed and edited by Jim Jenkin ©2000, 2014 TBMEDIA All rights reserved

JUNKY PUS LYRICS: JIM JENKIN and ANDY GAY MUSIC: WHiTEBREAD You’re one funky junky swimming in that pool of disease I can’t get too close to you because I’m too afraid to breathe Well there’s nothing left of you but just skin and bones You don’t feed yourself you just feed your jones Found your buddy blue and bloated, spike still in his arm Face down in the pavement, he finally bought the farm Manhole tracks up and down your arm You’re looking kinda yellow, there’s no cause for alarm Hoping for the day when your scars will heal Hoping for the day when you have the strength to steal Junky Junky Pus Andy Gay: Lead Vocal, drums Jim Jenkin: Backing vocal, guitar, sound fx, percussion Albert DeSoto: Backing vocal, guitar Channon Reed: Backing vocal, Bass Music produced by Jim Jenkin Video produced and directed by Jim Jenkin ©2000, 2014 TBMEDIA All rights reserved
