A woman knows (John the Revelator/Tom Huissen) A woman knows When you talk to be talking Whatever you do Whatever you say A woman knows When you play out of tune Dancing and jiving soon A woman knows When you’re fooling around No time for drinks No time to talk A woman knows When you walk out the door No more sugar on the floor You’re all set And ready to roll Hustle and bustle A grin on your face Get down with the beat Turn up the bass Dancing from wall to wall A woman knows When you hang out your coat You’ll be long gone In the morning cold A woman knows When you walk out the door No more sugar on the floor

Dreamtime (John the Revelator / Paul Dammers / Tom Huissen) There is a bright morning dawning Lost in the gloom of dust and sand Back and face your destiny Seek no haven in this land Hollow below ground Dreamtime passes many stages Waterfalls on the rocks Magic fingers in the air Crow spirit became man Take this crystal to bear Rising up from the plains Slumbering for countless ages Don’t you cross the dreaming track Cause of sadness and distress Ignorance kills every year Falling into a world A world of fear Ancient heroes roaming Digging water, hunting prey As it was done in dreamtime So must it be done today Hollow below ground Dreamtime passes many stages

Down in the Mud (John the Revelator -Tom Huissen) Lord I went down to the river To see the riverbed dried up The sky is full of thunder Please let me down in the mud Well you spit on the floor baby Rolled your eyes and turned away The storm clouds are passing Let me down in the mud Lord I went for a dead end Kept on walking till nightfall The streets are all empty Please let me down in the mud After two days with my baby Looking for a ten cent ride All hungry and ready Please let me down in the mud

Too many to bail, nobody goes to jail (Tom Huissen, Frans ten Kleij, Henk Suurling) When finance took over Stocks rising high Making money Like a pie in the sky Borrowing money It’s not for real Living in a bubble That’s how you feel Boom-Boom-Boom Boom-Boom-Boom Too many to bail Nobody goes to jail Blowing up the world Wrecking the place Losing savings Without a trace Showering money The bankers adrift Riding a white horse In day and night shift Boom-Boom-Boom Boom-Boom-Boom Too many to bail Nobody goes to jail Laundering money, Going home at night Cooking their books And turn out the light Subprime bonds Are full of shit Better cut short Well it’s time to quit Boom-Boom-Boom Boom-Boom-Boom Too many to bail Nobody goes to jail Boom-Boom-Boom Boom-Boom-Boom Too many to bail Nobody goes to jail And the government keeps writing the check
