1. It’s Not for Me But for My Friend
Music & lyrics by I. Helander

Well they search you at the border
They always get you in the end
Well they search you at the border
They always get you in the end
When they ask you why you’ve got it, say
It’s not for me it’s for my friend

Buy that high caliber ammo
Make the people comprehend
You buy that high caliber ammo
Make the people comprehend
When they ask you why you buy them you say that
They’re not for me but for my friend

There’s a bullet with your name
Coming from the river bend
There’s a bullet with your name
Coming from the river bend
But you may step aside and holler
It’s not for me but for my friend

2. Blues Street Cairo
Music by Helander Co., lyrics by I. Helander

Come on baby
Take a look a-here
See this map
It’s a blues map
Blues map
Move your finger across the blues map
Blues map
Move your finger across the blues map
Cairo Tehran Beirut

Come to me baby
Take my hand
Better take a walk with me
Down the street
Down the blues street
blues street
Man came from Africa
Along the blues street
Man came from Africa
Along the blues street
Cairo Tehran Beirut

3. My Home Town
Music & lyrics by I. Helander

My home town
My home town
Is on a high hill on sloping ground
That’s where my blues
It was lost and found
It was lost and found
It was lost and found

Gotta find me a woman
Find me someone
Find me somebody so nice and kind
But it’s so goddamn hard baby
It’s so hard to find
It’s so hard to find
It’s so hard to find

My father’s gone
That’s what I’m told
And now my mother
She done got old
That’s the same old story
Only half been told
Only half been told
Only half been told

My home town
My home town
Is on a high hill on sloping ground
That’s where my blues
It was lost and found
It was lost and found
It was lost and found

4. You’re Gonna Miss Me
Music & lyrics by I. Helander

Maybe I’m stupid
But I’m not a volunteer
I walk the streets at night
Worryin’ over her
You gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone

I know you gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone
Well I better think it over
There’s nothing left to loose
Bright lights are again shining
I can do the boogaloo
You gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone
I know you gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone

Singing laa laa la laa la….
I know you gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone

Well I wonder if you believe me
When I knocked upon her door
She had the nerve to tell me
She don’t want me no more
You gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone
I know you gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone

Singing laa laa la laa la….
I know you gonna miss me

When I’m dead and gone
You gonna miss me
When I’m dead and gone…

5. Fodder
Music & lyrics by I. Helander

My Monday woman
Tries to cheat me everywhere
My Monday woman
Tries to cheat me everywhere
But I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day

My shotgun woman
Tries to shoot me every day
My shotgun woman
Tries to shoot me every day
Still I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day

My mean cat woman
Tries to scratch me every day
My mean cat woman
She tries to scratch me every day
I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day
I gotta feed her every day

My Monday woman
My shotgun woman
My mean cat woman
I gotta feed ’em every day
I gotta feed ’em every day
I gotta feed ’em every day
I gotta feed ’em every day
I gotta feed ’em every day

6. White Rat
Music by I. Helander and J. Seppälä, lyrics by I. Helander

Better come and see my White Rat, people
While he’s prowling in my yard
Better come and see my White Rat now
While he’s prowling in the yard
While the Devil keeps his lap dog
White Rat he keeps my guard

White Rats are not so common
They live five thousand miles apart
White Rats are not that common
They live five thousand miles apart
They are the source of all wisdom
White Rat he keeps my guard

White Rat likes to play his game
Sometimes he’s nowhere to be seen
White Rat likes to play his game
He’s often nowhere to be seen
Oh, White Rat can be so evil
White Rat can can be so mean

White Rat can be so evil
White Rat can can be so mean
White Rat can can be so mean

7. Let Me Know
Music & lyrics by J. Ahvenainen

I can see you walking down the street
Pretty girl you look so sweet
I just fall down to my knees
Ooh baby – let me know
’Bout the dreams and wishes you have
In the night when the doors are locked
Oh let me know who’s the man who gets your love

I’m dreaming ’bout you night and day
In my mind I will follow your ways
I just wanna be your slave
Ooh baby – let me know
’Bout the dreams and wishes you have
In the night when the doors are locked
Oh let me know who’s the man who gets your love

CHORUS:
Let me know ’bout the dreams you have
Let me know ’bout the wishes you got
Oh could you tell me how you’d see
How you’d see a man like me
Standing by your side all night and day

CHORUS
Standing by your side all night and day
Standing by your side all night and day

8. Lightnin’ Head
Music & lyrics by I. Helander

I got a funny feeling
And I’m talking all out of my head
I got a funny funny feeling
And I’m talking all out of my head
Guess I better stay at home
Just lay down and remain in bed

Oh my head is hurtin’ me
Feels like I’m almost to go blind
Oh my head is hurtin’ me
Feels like I’m almost to go blind
This kind of ache and pain and torture
Sure ain’t gonna be my kind

I want you come over and see me darling
I want you to hold my aching head
I want you come over and see me darling
I want you to hold my aching head
You better hurry baby
’Cause I’m bound to turn stone dead

10. Private Professor
Music & lyrics by I. Helander

I can see you walking
To that stupid class
On your way to wasting
Time with atomic mass
Maybe you will learn
That thing you’ll never need
I wanna be you teacher baby
I got that kind of greed
I’m your private professor, baby
You’re my student number one
You better listen to my lecture
Together science is mere fun

A molecule is round
And carbon double bound
I wanna teach you something
That science never found
You better come into my office
Sit down and rest a while
I can dig into my files
That I wrote in special style
I’m your private professor, baby
You’re my student number one
You better listen to my lecture
Together science is mere fun

I came to this town
Some thirty years ago
Little did I listen
And little did I know
But now I’m a grown man
I’m well past twenty-one
I’m full of private knowledge
I hope you receive some
I’m your private professor, baby
You’re my student number one
You better listen to my lecture
Together science is mere fun

Go git me some…

11. Big D Never Sleeps
Music & lyrics by E. Kuloniemi

Big D is rollin’ down the highway
He is the one behind the wheel
It won’t be long until you and him will meet
Big D is on his midnight creep

’Cause big D, big D he never sleeps
I help you if I can
I can kill you if I must

D went to Estonia, took the ship towards the west
Wanted to show the man who’s best
He made the storm rise, eight hundred people maybe more
Sank down with the big boat, now the sea is where they rest

’Cause big D, big D he never sleeps
I help you if I can
I can kill you if I must

You better be careful, be careful what you eat
Every bite you take contains a little treat
D feed the cattle with the waste of the human race
Some weird disease might be your final fate

’Cause big D, big D he never sleeps
I help you if I can
I can kill you if I must

You make a deal with him if you eat too much of if you don’t
He burns his candle on you if you do somebody wrong
You flirt with him by drinkin’ too much
or smokin’ cigarettes
And start your honeymoon by doin’ drugs
Or having unsafe sex
He works tirelessly with his army in eight hour shifts
Big d never sleeps, when he’s needed he’ll soon be near
D-day rolls around, D’s knockin’ at your door
No matter who you are, checking out time is here

’Cause big D, big D he never sleeps
I help you if I can
I can kill you if I must

Big D
That big D
My big D, he never sleeps
’Cause big D, you know big d he never sleeps
Well I help you if I can
I can kill you if I must
I help you if I can
I can kill you if I must
Well I help you if I can
I can kill you if I must

12. Alone Black & Blue
Music & lyrics by I. Helander

I wish I had I wish I had this trouble off my mind
I wish I had I wish I had I wish I had
My baby by my side

Fine day is dawning and you whisper in my ear
Let’s go and have some fun
Black night is falling and I wake up from my dream
Those days are passed and gone

CHORUS:
And I’m all alone - I’m all alone
I’m all alone - I’m all alone
Alone black and blue
I’m all alone - I’m all alone
I’m all alone - I’m all alone
Alone black and blue

Got a constant feeling that I’m always on the run
Never getting close to you
Never mind I tell you that you’re just where you belong
Look who is playing the fool

CHORUS 2 x
