Lyrics - The Young Fresh Fellows
The Fabulous Sounds of the Pacific Northwest

01. Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
Narrator: Been thinking about a vactaion trip to the Pacific Northwest?
Well, those are just a few of the sounds of the this big country. We think
sounds are about the best way of communicating there is. So, we've assemble
a collection of typical sounds of the Pacific Northwest. Now sit back and
listen.


Creatures have taken over my house
They want my food and my skin and my time
Little frogs are OK but the slugs on the rug
?are trying to all? send me out of my mind
There's no place else that I can go
The only thing I can turn to is
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
A-wha-ho A-wha-ho Wha-HO
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control

Little kids bring zucchinis and stay all day
and then truck drivers follow me home
I'm expecting a guy from the PG&E
While a friend, of a friend, of a friend's on the phone
These last few weeks have taken their toll
I'm convinced that I have to resort to
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
A-wha-ho A-wha-ho Wha-HO
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
A-wha-ho A-wha-ho Wha-HO
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control

Now the sun's so hot it never rains
And there's Mormons knocking at the door
My mellons are gray in the refrigarator
And something's gone through the kitchen floor
I wanna create my only little black hole
And I know how to do it, I'm gonna use
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
A-wha-ho A-wha-ho Wha-HO
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control

Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
A-wha-ho A-wha-ho Wha-HO
Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
Yeah, Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
Wha-ho, Rock 'n' Roll Pest Control
 
02. All Messed Up
It's not very plesant to see
And it's not always quite the firm reality
Someone's got the thought control to leave us ?all repent?
I guess that one's just a little bit scared
No one's in control and I'm buried in so in this hole
He couldn't move me long ago but now I just don't know

It's not very permanent inside
But while I wait for change I'm ?missing Lelvin Trives?
Someone told me yesterday to kick it into gear
Why after all this kicking am I still right here?
I'm not in control and I'm buried so in this hole
I was all shook up so long ago but now I just don't know

It's not very promising indeed
But it's not always quite the firm reality
Someone's on the spot tonight with a fire and a hose
And the story ends just the way the story always goes
No one's in control and I'm buried so in this hole
All messed up with no place to go but now I just don't know
All messed up with no place to go but now I just don't know

 
03. Gus Theme
Narrator: Here, in a setting as green as England's turf, thousands of
visitors come to listen to words that will never die.


Gus! (x13 or so)
 
04. Think Better of Me
I'm gonna stop this stuff in the end
Because I really don't think it's fair
If you'll just stop feeling stupid
You'd think alot better of me
Better of me
Better of me

I'm gonna eat Peach Pie with my hands
And I'll still be the same kind of man
If I don't get my attorney then you'd
think better of me
Better of me
Better of me

In the future you'll realize that I'm something special
A special kind of guy
And I've got something you need
I've got something that you need

Now there's nothing left for me to say
Beacause you already love me today
If you knew that was enough
You'd think alot better of me
Better of me
Better of me

In the future you'll realize that I'm something special
A special kind of guy
And i've got something you need
I've got something that you need

Now there's nothing left for me to say
Beacause you already love me today
If you knew that was enough
You'd think alot better of me
Better of me
Better of me
 
05. Power Mowers Theme
Narrator: And when the last bronc is busted by those good guys of the west,
you can drive from cattle-country to the big mountain slopes where timber
communities hold their own competitions in the Logger's Carnival.


?Bite into a ten gallon ham? Buy it in two or ten gallon
Food and banners were everywhere
It was the celebration of Ricky's mouth disease
Down at Russell's Square
If it's a wedding or a high-school dance
Or the invasion of the army ants
The Power Mowers can cut it!

Now I was looking at six drunk sailors
They were carrying a loaf of bread
Ricky was swinging with a majorette
Underneath the King's bed
And if it's a formal or casual affair
Or just some guy going to the electric chair
The Power Mowers can cut it!

The gathering ????? it's an arsenal
We're warming up with kicks
In a caved in bar
The ushers covered Ricky with yellow ?flyers?
And propped him up in the car
Now don't you worry about negotiations
You need to welcome them at the station
The Power Mower's can cut it!
The Power Mower's can cut it!
The Power Mower's can cut it baby!

 
06. Empty Set Takes a Vacation
Playing down the road there's a rock sensation
Empty Set decided to take a vacation
Last night he said that numerous tours
Had just taken their toll of the band
So they hopped in the Sander's van
And picked up all the lads and lasses
Who were friends of the band
And they headed for Disneyland

?Well the luggage it was missing at the One Note City?
But they didn't pick him up because he'd been there already
Smacked out we're coming on acoustic guitar
But Captain Sanders wouldn't approve
So they told him to stand in the line
Then they made so many stand in at another time
But it got him nowhere...fast!

In L.A. they attended an Air Dog session
He had a ???? in his possesion
Juanita took a picture by a hydrant outside
And sent it to one of his fans
It was so great
Then they hopped right back in the van
Threw three more tracks in the can
And though it really wasn't part of the plan
Seemed like the thing to do at the time
 
07. View From Above
Narrator: Yes Patriece, Washington is a good sound stage for whistling.
In fact, from Bellingham to Vancouver, you can stroll along busy water-fronts
and let the whistles transform you into Captain Walter Mitty. Pacing the
bridge of a big freighter bound for Hong Kong, Stockholm or Calcutta.

?Though the whistle blew? her fingers like a blow-dryer
I roll up the windows climbing up a little higher
They say so high ????
Oh baby it's not something I'm saying just for fun
But I'm getting tired and the mattress is done

You're so sophisticated with your cathedral moves
I can smell from here the rows of old pews
And the altar adorned with the robes of the Lord
Oh baby it's not just something I'm saying to be mean
But I'm getting bored and the dashboard is clean

Now my armpit stings from a bout with the cross
In the rearview mirror you ?look right across?
The broken antenna's bent between your knees
Oh baby it's not something I'm saying just for laughs
You can bring back the breeze if I give you the shaft

Now that ?blue dress bothers the? auto workshop men
It's much better from here, up on the top
If I ?write on this? stomach you got to read it out loud
Oh baby it's not something I'm just saying for kicks
You're just part of the crowd with a nickname that sticks

The greatest sights of all time
Freaks of nature
????
The long necked women of Burma
The leopard man
The elephant ????
The alligator-skin man
And Barnum's famous ?zip?
The ???? who had a head that came to a point like an ice cream cone
He had no more brains than a monkey
The strangest sights of all times
Come in now and see
Reproductions of the famous freaks of all times
Freaks of nature

 
08. Big House
That was a fake name
Now we got him

One, two, three, four

Well the man upstairs is breaking tables and chairs
He's got his sledgehammer flying all night
And the woman in the den just rapped a child with a tin
She knows that I won't set a foot outside
'Cause it's a big house
Yes, it's a big house
Yes, it's a biiiiiig, big house
BIG HOUSE

Now the priestess of the moon occupies the next room
And she's sacraficing lambs all night
In the room next to hers we find the Pschadelic Furs
They're trying to get this brand-new song just right
But it's a big house
Yes, it's a big house
Yes, it's a biiiiig, big house
BIG HOUSE

You know it seems like I'm miles away
but me, i can sleep at night
They can make all the noise they want
But i'll sleep just fine
'Cause it's a big house
Yes, it's a big house
Yes, it'a a biiiiiig, big house
BIG HOUSE

As I ?queue? myself in
Some guy called Billy the Kid
Is in the ?brew? room shooting out the lights
And the hunch back in the attic
Rings the bells and gets estatic
While I always get to sleep at night
'Cause it's a big house
Yes, it's a big house
Yes, it's a biiiiiig, big house
BIG HOUSE

Sometimes I feel like I'm miles away
This band is just the right size
They make all the noise they want when I close my eyes
'Cause it's a big house
Yes, it's a big house
Yes, it's a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig, big house
BIG HOUSE
BIIIG HOUSE
BIIIIIIIG HOUSE

 
09. This Little Mystery
I saw her walking across a crowded street
I started watching to see whoever she'd come to meet
Nobody will ever know
?Assuming I'm dumb? but she said hello
She came up to me and held out her hand
and said I was the one who might understand
This little mystery

We started walking past all the guys I knew
We started talking to all the guys I knew
My friends all acted so amazed
Remember at home I said yesterday she stood next to me and held my hand
and said I was the one who could understand
This little mystery

Now she won't leave me cause it was meant to be
You can believe me, it's ancient history
In a castle tower
In a five room cave
On a sailing ship
Or in an island maze
She stands next to me and holds my hand
Because I am the one who will understand
This little mystery
 
10. A Humble Guy
Narrator: There's a drum full of other colorful sounds too.

Well he was so ashamed about the clothes that he wore that night
But I don't know why
He stood in the corner for hours adjusting his tie
But I don't know why
His intial cufflinks were shiny and his dress was the best suit lining
What a humble guy

Well she was part of the crowd but some how she caught his eye
But I don't know why
He took a little false courage and staggered over to give her a try
Still adjusting his tie
Well he held himself pretty steady
she said, "I gave at the office all ready, but you're very polite"

He took it like a champ
He got himself very damp
Went back to the corner with a broken lamp
and passed out in front of an amp

When he woke up his tie was loose and his mouth was dry
Gee I don't know why
She was saying that she'd help him "You're in no condition to drive"
She was feeling real bad
Well she took him back to her place and he threw up all over her face
What a humble guy

 
11. Down by the Pharmacy
Open the icebox baby
And take out the cheese
Cut off the moldy parts
And tape them to your knees

Do you want to know the answers baby?
Do you want to get inside of me?
My reason for living
Is written all over your face

Warm up the car now honey
And step on the gas
You don't know where we're going yet
But you know it's not too fast

But do you want to know the answers baby?
Do you want to go deep inside of me?
My reason for living
Is watching Lost in Space

Take out the magazine love
And spread them on the floor
Call up the nurse with the scrabble set
Just in case we get very bored

You don't want to know the answers baby
You don't want to get inside of me
My reason for living
Is written down some place

*scream*
 
12. Teenage Dogs in Trouble
Narrator: What's that? Not enough action you say? Listen.

They're getting bolder every day
They got numbers on their side
They don't need a society
They never even tried
Have no fear is the fear that's best
One gets kicked and so do the rest
Sharp enough to burst any bubble
They don't care they're just
Teenage Dogs in Trouble

Some of them came up from the pound
Saved only by the will to survive
Most of them sit on the street
Sometimes more dead than alive
Have no fear is the fear that's best
One mutt strikes and so do the rest
Victim found face down in a puddle
Signed sincerely
Teenage Dogs in Trouble

*scream*

In the shadowed caves of the metropolis where only fools go
There's a rabid rainy apocalypse beneath the fractured lunar glow
Scared and lonely but not alone
Can barely remember where once was a home

Used and confused drawn trough the dragnet
Trapped in an alley hair like a magnet
Gleaming eyes and a snarl from the rebel
You're face to face with
Teenage Dogs in Trouble

 
13. You Call That Lonely?
You're not as hansome as you used to be
But you're the only one who notices anyway
You learned those antics from your older brother
The one who everybody calls Mr. Tapeworm today
You gotta be kidding
What's the sudden hurry? Yeah!
You think that a fix like this could happen to you and you only
You call that lonely?
You call that lonely?

I've heard those stories about your special friend
Who likes the great distinguished smoking jacket look
But all that takes place in another world
And now you're desperate for a sillier comic book
You gotta be kidding
Why the sudden worry? Yeah!
You think that a fix like this could happen to you and you only
You call that lonely? (x4)

And now the only good advice isn't very nice
You see you gotta check out and trick the mirror once or twice
You'll see your eyelids turn blue and your hairy chest too
And then you'll never know what I tried to tell you what to do
That's not lonely
Well that's not lonely
Well that's not lonely
You can't call that lonely

 
14. That Letter
Narrator: Well now you know the score here in the Pacific Northwest.
Uh-oh. Here's one we missed.


We haven't been friends for a long time
but you understand why I do what I do
It's threatening to end in the meantime
but you understand what I'm going through
I'm not the same as before and I don't know if I like it
But listen to me
Don't make me wear that letter
Don't tear up this happy home
It wouldn't be that much better to do it all alone

One day when we're far along we'll look back on this heart break
and it will seem quaint
But right now what wrong feels wrong
Don't think I'm evil but I don't want to be a saint
Sure I'm not the same as before and I don't know if I like it
But listen to me now
Don't make me wear that letter
Don't tear up this happy home
It wouldn't be that much better to do it all alone

No I'm not the same as before and I don't know if I like it
But listen to me now
Don't make me wear that letter
Don't tear up this happy home
It wouldn't be that much better
No it wouldn't be that much better
It wouldn't be that much better to do it all alone
 
15. Young Fresh Fellows Theme
Narrator: Hey what's your hurry? I see. You've listened to the sounds of the
Pacific Northwest and now you just can't wait to go look. Fine. But we had
one more important sound we wanted you to hear.


Well they were walking down the street
I never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before
Well there was something about the way they combed their hair
and something about the clothes that they wore
Well they don't act so cool, they're just regular Joes
Well they're the Young Fresh Fellows now nobody knows them
I've never seen a couple Young Fresh Fellows before
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellows!

I went and told them I was new down town
and did not know the proper spots to hang around
Well they were awfully cool those guys answered me true
They said, "Just stick with us man, we'll show you what to do"
They took me to a rock club where the girls were the most
We imported all our brews in our deep sports coats now
I never knew I was a Young Fresh Fellow before
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellow!

Now we're together all the time
We're just a couple of the Young Fresh Fellows you see
Heating up some chili for our evening meal
and catching the Beave everyday on TV
Well we're not out to make a real big splash
But we wouldn't mind a record and a little hard cash now
I never knew I was a Young Fresh Fellow before
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellow!
I never knew
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellow!
I never knew I was a Young Fresh Fellow before
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellow!
I never knew
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellow!
I never knew I was a Young Fresh Fellow before
Ahhh-hhhh Young Fresh Fellow!
I never knew! (x11)
Oh yeah, yeah! I never knew!
