Track Name: I Left My One-Spot (Back at the 5-Spot)
well, the band was hot last night
but we’ll never hit it big
yeah, I’m afraid that four-song slot we rocked
might’ve been our last gig

and those two good-looking girls
with their electric cigarettes
were probably real important people
we should’ve met

but I left my One-spot
back at the 5-Spot
and it’s the straw that finally crushed this poor boy’s soul
yeah, I left my One-spot
back at the 5-Spot
and that’s the end of all that good-time rock ‘n’ roll

maybe I’ll settle down here
and it’ll be just as well
raise up a coupla rascals
I’m sure done raisin’ hell

well, I hate to be a let down
to all the loving fans
but I’ll have a chat with Hot Carl
and I’m sure he’ll understand

that I left my One-spot
back at the 5-Spot
and it’s the straw that finally crushed this poor boy’s soul
yeah, I left my One-spot
back at the 5-Spot
and that’s the end of all that good-time rock ‘n’ roll
Track Name: A Chip off the Barroom Floor
she’s not like her mother in that old nightgown
she’s decked-out and dolled-up and out on the town
she got some last night and she’s ready for more
she’s a chip off the barroom floor

she’s not like her father working hard to get by
she’ll do what it takes just to find her next high
she’s willing and able when she’s looking to score
she’s a chip off the barroom floor

her brothers and sisters all went off to school
they prayed before bed and they played by the rules
when they said she was trouble, well, I guess they were right
how could I fall for this girl of the night?

the apple has fallen so far from the tree
she won’t be the woman I want her to be
so lovely to look at but down at the core
she’s a chip off the barroom floor
