about

This is a collection Rogue Tortoise's unfinished recordings, a project that we recorded in the summer of 1987 while Brett was home on summer break from college.

At one point, we considered forming a "band" and performing these songs live, and had included our friend Jay Littrell as an additional vocalist, as well as my high school friend Ken that played trumpet.

None of these recordings were completed, and with exception to "Take It" contained only scratch vocal tracks (if any vocal tracks were recorded at all).

"Get That Damn Cat Out Of My Hedge" was composed but never recorded during the original sessions. This version was recorded more than 30 years later in February of 2019.

Track Name: Seven Lies
I have only dreamed of seven lies
(One, two, three, four, five, six, seven)
Four of which five times I've made two tries
(Seven, six, five, four, three, two, one)

Two have failed me but they shouldn't
Tried to drown me but they couldn't
Now I ask you to play out my (my have we)
Fantasy

Seven lies, seven lies
I have only dreamed of only
Seven lies, seven lies
One two three two six five four three
Seven lies, seven lies
Four of which three times I've had tow tries
Seven lies

One, I'll help you
Two, I'll be there tonight
Three, I like your dress
Four, it doesn't bite

Five, I promise not to hurt you
Six, I never will forget you
Seven. I think you fulfilled my (my have we)
Fantasy

Seven lies, seven lies
I have only dreamed of only
Seven lies, seven lies
One two three two six five four three
Seven lies, seven lies
Four of which three times I've had tow tries
Seven lies

Try to follow if you can
We must not rely on the truth
We have no patent on the lies rely on my (my have we)
Fantasy

Seven lies, seven lies
I have only dreamed of only
Seven lies, seven lies
One two three two six five four three
Seven lies, seven lies
Four of which three times I've had tow tries
Seven lies
Track Name: Make Love To Me Like A Computer
Suzy was a girl of nineteen (nineteen)
Fresh as a muffin never spoiled my man's hand
Danny sat at home played computer space invaders
Mom and dad hoped Danny would soon be a man

And though they never met Suzy dreamed a dream of Danny
He held her in his arms Suzy said to him

(Oh won't you) make love to me like a computer?
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Computer chips can make no sin

Friday night Suzy was an ice ice skater (ice ice)
Every night she skated if momma let her 'til half-past ten
Mom and dad took Danny out he pleaded "don't make me go!"
Dad said "don't worry, you'll know what to do I told you when"

Danny hung on the rail thinking ROM wishing that he was home
Suzy hit his skate fell on her head she had a dream of him

(Oh won't you) make love to me like a computer?
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Computer chips can make no sin

Suzy was a girl of nineteen (nineteen)
Fresh as a muffin never spoiled my man's hand
Danny sat at home just looked at his computer
Locked inside he knew was how to be a man
Locked inside were visions of Suzy's man

(Ah) be a man (be a man)
(Ah) be a man (be a man)
I'm going to do the best I can (be a man)
"Hello?" "Hello Danny, this is Suzy"

Make love to me like a computer
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Computer chips can make no sin, sin, sin, sin, sin, no!

Make love to me like a computer
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Make love to me
Track Name: Treat Me Like A Cowboy
Riding 'cross the desert plain tonight
Shooting past the tumbleweed my spurs go jangle jangle
You're waiting in my stall turn out the light
Coyote cries fill the air the wind kicks off a shingle

Are you afraid of my six sex shooter
I'm going to bring you to your knees

Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy

The smell of burning flesh fills the air
The stinging pain of family brands forever linger linger
The boots you wear I fill from year to year
I'd rather be a cowboy than a long hair rock and roll singer

Smoke will fill the air when comes the tin star hero (tin star hero)
Until that day I'll be your man

Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy

Happy trails to you

The dust of the land fills my eyes and ears
Can you feel the weight that the earth has laid upon me
They say out there's only steers and queers
But years have shown me visions only meant for me to see

Don't turn away while I peel you open
I like to hear my cattle scream

Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy
Treat me like a cowboy
