A punk jazz singer, pianist and arranger from the Midgender Midatlantic. I swing like a siren, groove like a goddess and wear shoes made from the skin of lounge lizards.

I am mostly accompanied by my Fauxchestra, a virtual big band of splendid fellows who live and rehearse somewhere in my psyche.

Track Name: Ugly Doris
Way down deep beneath the sea
Is where you'll find the folk like me
I've got a glowing bud and a gurning smile
And more teeth than a crocodile
Around the warm volcanic jets
Life's as precious as it gets
Here you don't need no disguise
'Cause we ain't seen by judging eyes
If you don't like us you can go to Hell
We deal with pressure real well
It may be dark and it may be cold
But it ain't never old

Way on down out of sight
Making culture in the night
We don't need your approval to make us feel alright

Imagine my surprise one night
When I was hit by a blinding light
And there in a shiny chrome tin can
Was a hairy deep sea diver man
He stopped and stared, then by and by
He rose on up into the sky
A few days later back he sank
To put me in a little tank
If you don't like us you can go to Hell
We deal with pressure real well
It may be dark and it may be cold
But it ain't never old

Way on down out of sight
Making culture in the night
We don't need your approval to make us feel alright

Now, I don't know how much time has passed
But now I'm looking through a wall of glass
At a bunch of passing gawking creeps
And the sign reads "Nightmares Of The Deep"
In other tanks around the room
Are all my buddies in the gloom
Freaks and weirdos on display
And I'm "Ugly Doris". How's your day?
If you don't like us you can go to Hell
We deal with pressure real well
It may be dark and it may be cold
But it ain't never old

Way on down out of sight
Making culture in the night
We don't need your approval to make us feel alright
Track Name: I Broke The Law (edit)
I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
Some girl tried to get her hands on you
And me stuck in the middle, what could I do?
I broke the law today for the first time

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
I saw your head in between her thighs
And then I saw a bread knife between her eyes
I broke the law today for the first time

And now the city PD are going to come for me
Oh, darling, don't you see, they'll never leave us be
Every day I'll cry and pray
Why did it have to be this way?

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
I'm not a bad person, you know I'm not
But when it comes to love, you're all I've got
I broke the law today for the first time

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
She had such a cute body and a pretty face
I left her on the shelf in your trophy case
When I broke the law today for the first time

Now the CIA are going to look my way
And the FBI are going to drop on by
Tooth and nail they're going to drag me to jail
And they'll leave me all alone with my misery

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
I'll always love you darling, you know it's true
Even though you ripped my heart in two
I broke the law today for the first and second time.
Track Name: Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier
Here I stand on Buttermilk Hill
Who can blame me, crying my fill
And every tear could turn a mill
Johnny has gone for a soldier

Shule, shule, shule agra
Only death can heal my woe
For the lad of my heart from me did go
Go thee thu mauverneen sloan

When his orders came he could not stay
To fife and drum he marched away
My heart went too that fateful day
Johnny has gone for a soldier

Shule, shule, shule agra
Only death can heal my woe
For the lad of my heart from me did go
Go thee thu mauverneen sloan

I sold my rock, I sold my reel
I even sold my spinning wheel
To buy my love a sword of steel
Johnny has gone for a soldier

Shule, shule, shule agra
Only death can heal my woe
For the lad of my heart from me did go
Go thee thu mauverneen sloan

I'll dye my dress, I'll dye it red
And round the world I'll beg my bread
'Till I find my love alive or dead
Johnny has gone for a soldier

Shule, shule, shule agra
Only death can heal my woe
For the lad of my heart from me did go
Go thee thu mauverneen sloan
Track Name: Nothing For You Here
It's been seventeen days since you left here
Or maybe it's been more
And now you're back here again
Beating down my door
Well, you just stop the noise and disappear
'Cause it's too late now and there's nothing for you here

You were never in control
Like a coward you blamed me
Moaning to your special friends
Stella and J.D.
You just go and drink another beer
'Cause it's too late now and there's nothing for you here

The broken things about the place
The purple rings about my face
Every time you spoke my name
I knew I'd be the one to blame

I gave you everything
And now I'm dead inside
All the sadness, all the pain
And all the tears I've cried
But I'm not going to shed another tear
'Cause it's too late now and there's nothing for you here

All the things you did and said
Formed a tumour inside my head
You left me broken on the ground
Wishing that you would come around

I gave you everything
And now I'm dead inside
All the sadness, all the pain
And all the tears I've cried
I don't want you now or ever
Do you hear?
It's too late now
It's too late now
It's too late now and there's nothing for you here
