Dr. Seuss is Dead

by Too Much Joy

Hey Merlin! 02:37
HEY MERLIN The path to the house -- the path is overgrown The door swings open -- there is no one home They say a man lived here many years ago But what happened to this man no one knows no one knows They say he had -- he had some magic friends and they all met -- they all met tragic ends Banished and scattered the wizards died and now all the legends lie the legends lie Hey Merlin, Hey Merlin don't believe a word they say Hey Merlin, Hey Merlin it was worth it anyway Living backwards in time Losing your mind You fall from grace -- fall from grace before you're there They soil your name -- soil it to protect theirs all laughter and joking is illegal now They'd ridicule you but they don't know how don't know how © & ℗ 1990 People Suck Music
Never Work 02:33
NEVER WORK Walking down the city streets my favorite sneakers on my feet Shine so bright they hurt my eyes There is magic in the sky Behind the windows And in the shadows I like the picture in my hotel room It is bolted to the wall I like the lights Outside my window I like the long walk down the hall Never work Get around get around the hardest part Never work Get around the hard part Elevator in that building Full of people thinking bout killing Time or each other So look out brother They never touch they rarely speak They stare at the brown shoes on their feet There is a room inside my room There is fruit on every tree There is a devil Outside my window He's got a fat paycheck for me © & ℗ 1991 People Suck Music
JUST AROUND THE BEND Just around the bend There are some people They're gonna be our friends Just around the bend It's spring then summer Then spring then spring again Around the bend This road has got to end Sweat in my eye My head it aches my feet they hurt Throat is getting dry My fingernails are caked with dirt This is not what I asked for This was meant for someone else All we want Is a little for myself Just around the bend There is a cafe Best food you ever ate Just around the bend It don't cost nothing They let you break the plates Bugs on the windshield These wipers don't do anything Holes in the floorboard Could scrape the skin right off my feet Seems we've been driving always This old car ain't even mine Odometer is turning Watch it read 99,999.9 Just around the bend There is a woman The one you're waiting for Just around the bend We'll ditch this old car Won't need it any more Just around the bend There is a woman She's gonna comfort you Just around the bend I'll do what I want You do what you want, too © & ℗ 1991 People Suck Music


Originally released as a fanclub-only single for Joybuzzer members in 1994. We promised we'd never make it available in any other form, a promise we eventually broke due to semi-popular demand.

Too Much Joy Scarsdale, New York

TMJ is/was a punk-pop band of some minor renown. Some of that renown was due to their music, which included semi-hits such as “Crush Story,” “Donna Everywhere,” and “That’s a Lie” — a cover of the LL Cool J tune that featured the man himself in the music video, which actually got played quite a bit during daylight hours on MTV back when they did that sort of thing. ... more
