LAUNDRY SERVICE

"Whenever, Wherever"

Lucky you were born that far away so
We could both make fun of distance
Luck that I love a foreign land for
The lucky fact of your existance

Baby I would climb the Andes solely
To count the freckles on your body
Never could imagine there were only
Ten Million ways to love somebody

Le do le le le le, Le do le le le le
Can't you see
I'm at your feet

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear

Thereover, hereunder
You'll never have to wonder
We can always play by ear
But that's the deal my dear

Lucky that my lips not only mumble
They spill kisses like a fountain
Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains
Lucky I have strong legs like my mother
To run for cover when I need it
And these two eyes that for no other
The day you leave will cry a river

Le do le le le le, Le do le le le le
Can't you see
I'm at your feet

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear

Thereover, hereunder
You'll never have to wonder
We can always play by ear
But that's the deal my dear

Le do le le le le, Le do le le le le
Think out loud
Say it again

Le do le le le le
Tell me one more time
That you'll live
Lost in my eyes

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear

Thereover, hereunder
You've got me head over heals
There's nothing left to fear
If you really feel the way I feel



"Objection"

It's not her fault that she's so irresistible
But all the damage she's caused is unfixable
Every twenty seconds you repeat her name
But when it comes to me you don't care
If I'm alive or dead, so

[Chorus:]
Objection
I don't want to be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
Love is for free and
I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother
Objection
I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way
I've got to get away

Next to her cheap silicone I look minimal
That's why in front of your eyes I'm invisible
But you've got to know small things also count
Better put your feet on the ground
And see what it's about, so

[Chorus (with a slight change)]
?- The angles of this triangle ?-

I wish there was a chance for
You and me
I wish you could find our
Place to be
Away from here

This is pathetic
And sardonic
And sadistic
And psychotic
Tango is not for fun
Was never meant to be
But you can try it
Rehearse it
Or train like a horse
But don't you count on me
Don't you count on me boy

[Chorus]





"Eyes Like Yours"

Oh, you know I have seen
A sky without sun
A man with no nation
Saints captive in chains
A song with no name
For lack of imagination
Ya he ya he ya la he
And I have seen
Darker than ebony
Ya he ya he ya la he
You know it seems that I
Without your eyes
Could never be

My one desire
All I aspire
Is in your eyes
Forever to live
Traveled all over
Crossed lands and oceans
There's nothing
That I wouldn't give

Came from Bahrein
Got to Beirut
Looking for someone
Comparing to you
Tearing down
Windows and doors
And I could not
Find eyes like yours

Rabboussamai fikarrajaii
Fi ainaiha aralhayati
Ati ilaika min haza lkaaouni
Arjouka labbi labbi nidai

Came from bahrein
Got to beirut
Looking for someone
Comparing to you
Tearing down
Windows and doors
And I could not
Find eyes like yours

Oh, you know I have seen
A woman of means and rags
And begging for pleasure
Crossed a river of salt
The specter I rode
The ship that sank
In the desert

Ya he ya he ya la he
And I have seen
Darker than ebony
Ya he ya he ya la he
You know it seems that I
Without your eyes
Could never be

My one desire
All I aspire
Is in your eyes
Forever to live
Traveled all over
Crossed lands and oceans
There's nothing
That I wouldn't give

Rabboussamai fikarrajaii
Fi ainaiha aralhayati
Ati ilaika min haza lkaaouni
Arjouka labbi labbi nidai

Came from Bahrein
Got to Beirut
Looking for someone
Comparing to you
Tearing down
Windows and doors
And I could not
Find eyes like yours

Rabboussamai fikarrajaii
Fi ainaiha aralhayati
Ati ilaika min haza lkaaouni
Arjouka labbi labbi nidai

Looking for someone
Comparing to you
Tearing down
Windows and doors
And I could not
Find eyes like yours



"Poem To A Horse"

You're too far to bring you across
Too high to see below
Just hanging on your daily dose
And you never needed anyone
But they're rolling papers for your grass
How can you give what you don't have?

You keep on aiming for the top
And quit before you sweat a drop
Feed your empty brain with your hydroponic pot
You start out playing with yourself
You get more fun within your shell
Nice to meet you but I gotta go my way

[Chorus:]
I leave again
Cuz I've been waiting in vain
But you're so in love with yourself
If I say my heart is sore
Sounds like a cheap metaphor
So I won't repeat it no more

I'd rather eat my soup with a fork
Or drive a cab to New York
Cuz to talk to you is harder work
So what's the point of wasting all my words
If it's just the same or even worse
Than reading poems to a horse

You keep on aiming for the top
And quit before you sweat a drop
Feed your empty brain with your hydroponic pot
I bet you'll find someone like you
Cuz there's a foot for every shoe
I wish you luck but I've got other things to do



"Te Dejo Madrid"

uh... ah ah
si, ya es hora de esconder
del mundo el dolor
bajo la piel

yo se que estare bien
los gatos como yo
caen de pie

no quiero
jugar mi suerte por ti
y no puedo
con f? peque?a vivir
pronto estare de aqu??
muy muy lejos

[coro]

ay me voy otra vez
ay te dejo Madrid
las rutinas de piel
y tus ganas de huir

yo no quiero cobardes
que me hagan sufrir
mejor le digo adios
a tu boca de anis

si, ya es hora de limpiar
las manchas de miel
sobre el mantel

yo nunca supe actuar
mis labios se ven
muertos de sed

no quiero
dejarlo todo al azar
entiendo
que he comenzado a estorbar
pronto estare de ti
muy muy lejos

[coro]

hay me voy otra vez
hay te dejo Madrid
las rutinas de piel
y tus ganas de huir

yo no quiero cobardes
que me hagan sufrir
mejor le digo adi?Rs
a tu boca de anis

ah, aah
(arm?Rnica)

[coro x2]

ay te dejo madrid
madrid
a tu boca de anis
a tu boca de anis



"Fool"

Tell me lies
slap me on the face
just improvise
do something
really clever
that'll make me hate
your name forever

You might swear
you'd never
touch a lady
well, let me say
you're not too far
from maybe
every day you find
new ways to hurt me

But I can't help it
if I'm just a fool
always having my heart
set on you
'til the time
you start changig
the rules
I'll keep chasing
the soles
of your shoes

Fool

Got resigned from
hearing my own story
every night I'm paying
hell for glory
I'm embarrassed but
I'm much more sorry

All this pain begins
to feel like pleasure
with more tears
you'd make a sea
of desert
salt my wounds
and i'll keep
saying thank you

But I can't help it
if I'm just a fool
always having my heart
set on you
'til the time
you start changig
the rules
I'll keep chasing
the soles
of your shoes

Fool

But I can't help it
if I'm just a fool
always having my heart
set on you
'til the time
you start changing
the rules
I'll keep chasing
the soles
of your shoes

Fool
I can't help it baby
fool
I can't help it baby
fool
I can't help it baby
fool
I can't help it baby

Fool
I'm a fool
I'm a fool



"Ready For The Good Times"

I don't wanna clear the cobwebs from my head
Time will bring them back I bet
So if you hear me say that I believe in love
Don't make me feel ashamed
I used to sing the saddest songs
And while in the meantime roaches used to climb my door
Falling back down to the floor
I used to read survival guides
When my world was full of seven legged cats
But here a I am with eight more lives

I'm ready for the goodtimes
I'm ready for the goodtimes
Ready to get it on
i'm ready for the goodtimes
I'm ready for the goodtimes
Now that I'm not alone

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
You know it
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
You better not
Ignore it

I don't wanna look at fashion magazines
While someone does my nails
Sitting here watching other people live
Frozen by the fear to fail
Cause, everyday there's a war to fight
And if I win or lose never mind
As long as you're my shelter every night
I used to cry against a wall
But now i've got a shoulder
That I can lean on
Swear to me you won't be gone

I'm ready for the goodtimes
I'm ready for the goodtimes
Ready to get it on
i'm ready for the goodtimes
I'm ready for the goodtimes
Now that I'm not alone

[Instrumental]



"Rules"

You have to swear
You've got love to love me
That will last forever
We must have a story
With a happy ending
?I swear to never go away?
And never put aside
The things I'm gonna say
Cuz these are rules for us

[Chorus:]

Use your eyes only to look at me
Use your mouth only to kiss my lips
We are branches of the same old tree
You can laugh only if you laugh at me
You can cry only if you cry for me
Don't forget that you're condemned to me
Can't you see
You always were
You'll always be

You used to say
I should see a doctor
Who would keep me busy
Cuz a jealous woman
Never makes it easy
And you know I'll defrost
Whatever seems right
But it may take a while
Before I change the rules

[Chorus (2X)]



"Que Me Quedes Tu"

Que se arruinen los canales de noticias
Con lo mucho que odio la television
Que se vuelvan anticuadas las sonrisas
Y se extingan todas las puestas de sol
Que se supriman las doctrinas y deberes
Que se terminen las peliculas de accion
Que se destruyan en el mundo los placeres
Y que se escriba hoy una ultima cancion

Pero que me quedes tu
Y me quede tu abrazo
Y el beso que inventas cada dia
Y que me quede aqui
Despues del ocaso
Para siempre tu melancolia
Porque yoooo, yoo si, si
Que dependo de ti
Y si me quedas tu
Me queda la vida

Que desaparezcan todos los vecinos
Y se coman las sobras de mi inocencia
Que se vayan uno a uno los amigos
Y acribillen mi pedazo de conciencia
Que se consuman las palabras en los labios
Que contaminen todo el agua del planeta
O que renuncien los filantropos y sabios
Y que se muera hoy hasta el ultimo poeta

Pero que me quedes tu
Y me quede tu abrazo
Y el beso que inventas cada dia
Y que me quede aqui
Despues del ocaso
Para siempre tu melancolia
Porque yoooo, yoo si, si
Que dependo de ti
Y si me quedas tu
Me queda la vida...



"Te Aviso, Te Anuncio"

Nunca pense que doliera el amor asi
cuando se entierra en el medio de un no y un si
es un dia ella y otro dia yo
me estas dejando sin corazon y cero de razon

Ay te aviso, te anuncio que hoy renuncio
a tus negocios sucios
ya sabes que estoy de ti vacunada
a prueba de patadas
por ti me quede como Monalisa
sin llanto y sin sonrisa
que el cielo y tu madre cuiden de ti...
me voy
sera mejor asi

Se que olvidarte no es asunto sencillo
te me clavaste en el cuerpo como un cuchillo
pero todo lo que entra ha de salir
y los que est??n tendr??n que partir
empezando por mi

Ay Te aviso, te anuncio que hoy renuncio
a tus negocios sucios
ya sabes que estoy de ti vacunada
a prueba de patadas
por ti me quede como Monalisa
sin llanto y sin sonrisa
que el cielo y tu madre cuiden de ti...
me voy...

Talvez tu no eres ese para mi
No se como se puede enga?ar asi
Pero era asi

Eres tan patetico
neurotico
sat??rico
psicotico
s? que no lo ves
el tango no es de tres
llevo enga?ando a este par y me sale al rev?s
pero voy a intentarlo una y otra vez

Ay te aviso, te anuncio que hoy renuncio
a tus negocios sucios
por ti me quede como Monalisa
sin llanto y sin sonrisa
te aviso que estoy de t?? vacunada
y no me importa nada
que el cielo y tu madre cuiden de ti
me voy ser?? mejor as??
ya me voy... ya me fu??
es mejor as??

Ay que el cielo y tu madre cuiden de t??... me voy
hay que el cielo y tu madre cuiden de t??... me voy ser?? mejor asi


"Underneath Your Clothes"

You're a song
Written by
The hands of God
Don't get me wrong
This might sound
To you a bit odd
But you're the place
Where all my thoughts
Go hiding
Right under your clothes
Is where I'll find them

Underneath your clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And of all the things
I deserve
For being such
A good girl honey

Because of you
I forgot the
Smart ways to rhyme
Because of you
I'm running out of
Reasons to cry
When the friends are gone
When the party's over
We'll still belong
To each other

Underneath your clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And of all the things
I deserve
For being such
A good girl honey


"Suerte"

Suerte que en el sur hayas nacido
y que burlemos las distancias
suerte que es haberte conocido
y por ti amar tierras extraas
Yo puedo escalar los Andes solo
por ir a contar tus lunares
contigo celebro y sufro todo
mis alegrias y mis males

Le ro lo le lo le
le ro lo le lo le
Sabes que estoy a tus pies

Contigo, mi vida
quiero vivir la vida
y lo que me queda de vida
quiero vivir contigo
Contigo mi vida
quiero vivir la vida
y lo que me queda de vida
quiero vivir contigo

Suerte que es tener labios sinceros
para besarte con mas ganas
Suerte que mis pechos sean pequeos
y nos los confundas con montaas
Suerte que herede las piernas firmes
para correr si un dia hace falta
Y estos dos ojos que me dicen
Que he de llorar cuando te vallas

Le ro lo le lo le
Le ro lo le lo le
Sabes que estoy a tus pies

[Chorus]

Le ro lo le lo le
le ro lo le lo le
Sabes que estoy a tus pies

Le ro lo le lo le lo la
La felicidad tiene tu
nombre y tu piel

[Chorus 2:]
Contigo, mi vida
quiereo vivir la vida
y lo que me queda de vida
quiero vivir contigo
Ya sabes mi vida
estoy hasta el cuello por ti
Si sientes algo asi
Quiero que te quedes junto a mi.
