Chevrotine 05:10
Chevrotine I want my baby back I want my baby home I want her to come back I want her to come home I want to hear her shout I want to hear her scream I’ve got to find her out She’s written on my skin She set my house on fire She filled my heart with pain I swear she is a liar She says that I’m insane I swear to God and Jesus The shotgun was unloaded This guy who came to tease us He just took the wrong road We’re driving down the valley The kid my friends and I We’re right behind you honey And rifles never lie
God got a mistress Show me the way back home ‘cause I’m going nowhere and I’m lost in your town… walking on main street, hanging around I’m learning some new steps, lost in your town A young kid is fooling, sticking like glue A turned round the corner and then I saw you God got a mistress she looks like you I must be dreaming, can it be true? Where have you been? I’ve been waiting for you You’re the wife and the lover, you’re my mother too You’re the holly Madonna, I was born for you God gimme the guts, gimme the faith I must be nuts or touched by the grace I don’t care how you landed here, I don’t care what you do It took two more whiskies ‘for I could talk to you “- You don’t know me, but I know you and I know that I wanna be with you it’s the first time that I see you but I know yet that it’s you - well, handsome! It’s so kind of you and if it’s your first time, it will be free for you…”
Black painted bones He’s got black painted bones One eye in the hole Two big wheels on a side And a constipated mind Is that a man ? He’s stinky when he’s wet He don’t play no trumpet His two folks are Peggy Sue And a plastic kangaroo Is that a man ? He read Finnegans Wake He’s twenty four hours late He puts shoeshine on his toes And that’s the way it goes…
Underground 06:32
Underground I fell low, I fell down I fell so underground But tonight I feel hope I feel high Like a joke I feel pain through my veins I feel rage against my friend And I cry And I pray For his soul To be saved Oh Lord, would you save his soul ? Lord, could you save his soul ? You may hide You may run I’ve got a thing for you You sure did something wrong I’ve got a gun in my suitcase I’ve got my hatchet too Oh you should thrill my friend ‘cause I’m coming right at you I feel free, like a fly A blue bottle, from the mire Feel attracted To the meat To your blood I feel the heat I’ve got a hatchet and a forty five it ain’t nothing but suicide I’ve got a hatchet and a forty five Come over here I’m gonna show you why
Nicole 05:12
Nicole I’ve got all my stuff shoved in a stayed shopping bag I’ve got one butt left, I need to pull on a drag I left my house and wife for a calendar doll She lives way down south and her name is Nicole I left two grown children and a brown stupid dog I had a pee on my boss chair ‘for I left my job But today I feel so nice ‘cause I know that you’re true Today I feel like me ‘cause I’m getting to you Can’t you hear that train ?!... I’ve been trying to reach you, you didn’t pick up the phone I’ve been knocking at your door there were nobody home Where are you now? where did you go? Why are you gone? I’ve been crying so and so why are you gone? I will never let you go I found a note on the back door and it’s written for me “I’m much too young for you daddy, won’t you let me be” you’re moving up to north with a goo goo named Jack and me I’m seating on the middle of the railroad track Can’t you hear that train ?!...
Funky George 04:03
Funky George You’ve got a question Want me to let you know If I got a reason Why am I acting so You say you’ve got the right You’ve got the right to know You wanna know why Why I’m acting so I’ve got to kill people that I can’t bear I’ve got the answer But I won’t let you know This feeling is mine And you can’t stop the flow ‘cause I’ve got the power and I’ve got the Do that’s what the whole world has got to know
The old man 02:26
Neighbors 02:53
Neighbors He wakes me up on the night time Telling his life is a bore He wants to know if I’m sleeping yet Goes up knocking on my door He comes to me with a scream The way that he bellows Maybe I’m too kind to him He keeps going up my nose But I hate him She’s got the prettiest smile Lips as sweet as a hush She doesn’t want any child ‘cause her tits are gonna crush She makes love for fake And wants to marry me She drives me mad but I can’t resist To her bottom in a bikini But I hate her Why do they keep on keeping on Breaking out my balls? I’ve got to speak my mind and rid myself But I can’t find the door From my neighbors and my door keeper I can hear the calls But I just stop my hears and keep on smiling Like I did before I hate them But I can’t tell’em so
Bee box 04:52
Bee box I met my friend in Istanbul, that’s where I choose to settle down He said: “there are a few things you got to know before you start to hang around” He told me down the street was just like hell and I promised to be wise I went into my room but I was out before the full moon started to rise My old friend was goddamned right, here even dogs are selling dope I caught a tattooed healer passing by, he got me dancing on the rope Live girls, young girls and moms, here you can buy all your desires But there is one loose place down here that no good man would never hire He told me more about it, he showed me a door He started to dance all around me hitting a wood stick on the floor He skipped one step lightly to the left, he skipped one step to the right He whispered one word low, I couldn’t hear and then the door got opened wide Watch out for the bee box You’d better know what you dare Watch out for the bee box There’s no human there Call my baby by the phone ‘caus I don’t feel like coming home come on baby, can’t you see that I don’t need no family
Domino 05:48
Domino She was a young queen, daddy would treat her right He died when she was four, then she began to fight First just against those little girls who love to treat you like crap Then with her mother, her brand new friends who were passing by She rode the horse and then she started to get high She was a junkie, but she did had brain She worked down in a club, to be a part of the game She made bloody tons of jobs but never stopped to run away I met her here, when she moved down to L.A. And now the shit is going to hit the fan She didn’t talk much, but man, she was a hit With her camo pants and a big knife on her hips She had a shotgun called Betsy and a nine mil in her back She was the hunter but something was on her tracks She used to say “heads you live, tails you die” -“I’ve got a girl called Domino I swear upon my soul See the sun going down on me I swear to treat you right And never let you down - swear you’ll never ever let me down again”
Twisted body & broken mind I’ve got a pain in my bones Got my pressure falling down the critic zone I’ve got my back getting torn Got a shorter leg ever since I was born I’ve got my eyes getting drown Got rotten teeth, my hair falling down I’ve got my heart working wrong No way to fix it up, I’ve waited much too long But I know a damned good way to be on top To feel as strong as a train It such a good feeling and I just can’t stop I’ve got a twisted body and a broken mind Bit I know a damned good way to cure my ills To feel as good as I can Home made drugs and shaped pills I’ve got a twisted body and a broken mind
Smoke 06:30
Smoke I like to smoke in my house I like to smoke in my car I like to smoke almost everywhere There is some pure and uncorrupted air I like to smoke in the loo I like to smoke in my bed I like to smoke almost everywhere And I absolutely don’t care I like to smoke on the bus I like to smoke on the train I like to smoke almost everywhere There is some pure and uncorrupted air I like to smoke in the restaurants I like to smoke I the bars I like to smoke almost everywhere There is some pure and uncorrupted air I like to smoke on the water I like to smoke under my shower I like to smoke almost everywhere And I absolutely don’t care
Poney 03:29
Poney I met you on a Monday A bar late at night I found myself knocked down Ten guys were waiting down the line I bought you a bunch of roses French champagne and wine I drove you back in my Porsche Your eyes were telling “what a night” I called you back on the Wednesday To take you outside I took you down that Russian place And it didn’t cost you a dime I read a heavenly poem With delightful rimes Then I drove back two bad guys Your lips were telling you were mine Oh honey, can’t you see I’m a little child I want you to get me on your knees I want you to take me for a ride


recorded and mixed in september 2009 at LA NICHE studio (Montreuil) by Sebastien Teulie and Hans Van Meerten.


When La Danse du Chien performs "Black Painted Bones," the devil's circus rolls into town. By the time a dirty moon has illuminated the whiskey streets, all the show girls are naked on stage and betrayed daddies are biting their fat cigars in half and sticking hundreds of pins in voodoo dolls. After midnight, stray dogs are seen wearing kangaroo suits, and astronomers discover that the moon is a severed clown's head dipped in honey.
