about

Vlayman Chicago, Illinois

Fat, bald and old - could I be anymo' rock-n-roll?
I play guitar, bass, some keys and percussion, and I try to vocalize. I write and record, and I do so obsessively. Also, I like martoonies, a lot, and I raise my kids, whom I also like, a lot.
Look for me at the TapeOp and TalkBass forums, where I'm vvv, or in various bars in the Loop.

There is them what say this is a dead end
For me and all my friends

This here's the place where I take my stand
This here's the place what makes me the man

Right across there is the old liquour store
Go get you some but come see me for more

Ain't nobody ever be standing here but me

I'm sellin' rock candy

She gave me the good rock

Track Name: The Sweetest Thing w Grankspoine & Cline
The Sweetest Thing
c. '16 Grankspoine; lyrics by Vlayman

You always held that I didn't know what I was doing
Took the position that I hadda be a incompetent
You never felt that I was capable of groovin'
But you always yelled out in the end

You never said nice things,
You say the sweetest things
Wooh -hooh

You never seemed to think that I had
any kinda empathy
You alway said I was only about me
You'd just lay there, bitch and not even moan
as I was sweatin'
Until you admitted you was gettin' everything you need
Track Name: In Mind w Grankspoine
In Mind
c. '16 Vlayman

When I'm sad
I try not to cry
When I'm sad I try to be glad
I'm not yet ready to die

I keep it in mind
I keep it in mind
I keep it in mind
This life is my mine

It's my life I'm riskin'
It's my life
I could just throw away

SOLO

When I'm glad
I cry out to try
When I'm glad I got you in mind
I'm not yet ready to die
Track Name: The King of Nothing Town
The King of Nothing Town
c. Vlayman

Today I'm drunk but, tomorrow I'll be sober
I'll keep gettin' younger as you're gettin' older
I'm goin' somewhere you cain't never know
I'm goin' somewhere you cain't never go

Today I'm drunk but, I really do feel alright
Think I'll keep drinkin' here, the rest of the night

It ain't easy bein' nothin' but I believe I got it down
I'm the king of nothin' right here in Nothin' Town

I got no real lovin' just enough to get me by
I got no real money just enuff to keep me high

I ain't never asked for nobody to listen to me
(don't want 'em down on their knes,
and they don't wanna be)
You wouldn't wanna and I won't teach ya for free
Track Name: The Truth of It
The Truth of It
c. '16 Vlayman

Some how I just knowed you couldn't
look me in the eye
Some how I just knowed you couldn't
without cryin'

It's the truth of it

Some how I just knowed you couldn't
not get yerself high
Some how I just knowed you couldn't
'splain yerself without lyin'

Some how I just knowed you couldn't
try to stay alive
Some how I just knowed you couldn't
'splain yerself without dyin'
Track Name: Step Off
Step Off
c. '16 Vlayman

Men see you as a threat all alone
They don't know how to behave
If they can't be the master at home, They still won't be the slave

You don't give them anything
And they know that they're lost
You don't give them anything, It's time they Step off

Some women find you intriguing at home
They wanna hear what you say
If you catch them out drinking alone
They might let you play

You don't give them anything
And they know that they're lost
You don't give them anything, It's time they Step off

Me, I don't care what you do on your own
I kinda find you boring nowdays
No surprise to find you living alone
I got nothin' to say
Track Name: Too Old
Too Old to Die Young
c. '16 Vlayman

I been around such a long time, now
I seen so many things that I'm on full
My heart and my mind is workin' way overtime
And I can't, I just can't, I can't take no mo'.

Oh, my son, y'know it's been fun but
I'm too old to die young


In '75 when yer moms came alive,
I'd been around by then many a year
And a year to me now is like the life of a flower
A flower that drinks all your tears

Oh, my son, y'know it's been fun but
I'm too old to die young

This is become a new millenium
and I've lost all my friends to the grave
And my lovers is gone and this is a last song
To tell you I cannot be saved
Track Name: C-L Poseur
C-L Poseur
c. '16 Vlayman

Oughta be a regulation
If you extend a invitation
you do it cuz you wanta be accepted
not rejected
you wanna be taken seriously
You want some respect
any gonna happen
when you act like that

CH: Don't ask me to join with you
when you ain't got no intent
You don't intent to cary thru
yer nuthin' but a poser

Ain't no gettin away from it
you showed no respect
Ain't no gettin away from it
and so no respect shall you get
no respect

CH: Don't ask me to join with you
when you ain't got no intent
You don't intent to cary thru
yer nuthin' but a poser

CH: Don't ask me to carry thru
when you ain't got no intent
You don't really want nobody
to join with you
yer nuthin' but a poser
it's true

CH: Don't ask me to join with you
when you ain't got no intent
You don't intent to cary thru
yer nuthin' but a poser
Track Name: Train in the Rain
rain in the Rain
c. '16 Vlayman

Baby rides every
every night
Rides every night
to Jackson

She rides the train in the rain
Baby rides the train

Baby walks the streets
every night
Baby walks the streets
for action

She rides the train in the rain
Baby rides the train

Baby know I'm waiting for her
She knows, baby knows
Just ask her

She rides the train in the rain
Baby rides the train

SOLO

Baby know I'm thinkin' 'bout her
She knows, baby knows
She's my last one
