Do kittens die on Christmas?
Do monkeys like the zoo?
Oh Ohh, I haven't got a clue, Oh whoa
Oh no, I haven't got a clue
Are salesman really tricky?
Is gossip really true?
Oh Ohh, I haven't got a clue
Oh no, I haven't got a clue
Take me high on your silent wings
And I swear I'll do anything for you
There's crack in Kansas City
And back in Katmandu
Oh Ohh, they haven't got a clue
Oh no, they haven't got a clue
Do they wear plaid in China?
Or leather in Bombay?
Oh Ohh, I really couldn't say
Oh no, I really couldn't say
Take me high on your silent wings
And I swear I'll do anything for you
Make you smile, give you words to say
And I swear I'll give everything to you
There's 7 in the bedroom
And 20 in the hall
Who haven't got at all
Oh no, they haven't got at all
They're tearing up Virginia
And tearing down the mall
Ohh, they haven't got it all
Oh no, they haven't got it all
Take me high on your silent wings
And I swear I'll do everything for you
Make you shine give you diamond rings
Yea I swear I'd do anything for you

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
