You can tell I'm no great planner I ended up at the wanna be manor wanna be manor, what a place to be wanna be manor, it's not for me I walked in the door, pee on the floor looked on the floor, spotted a whore drugs and filth are all around no clean dishes can be found if you thought that your nightmares were scary wait till you meet the hole called Jerri no one dragged a dead fish in the room it's her spreading legs and her fetal perfume I walked upstairs, I can't explain but I got involved in a three man train was it fun? Yeah, I guess but I got crabs like all the rest Dave's a cool guy but a real slob lives on unemployment, and he can't get a job go ahead and drink, there's nothing to fear just make sure you sniff that beer! Passing out is no excuse you'll be subject to abuse so I used to hang there but what is it? It's just the pigs on their nightly visit After busting one person each the pigs said to move out of huntington beach now I'll have to find a new scam or find another wanna be manor wanna be manor You can tell I'm no great planner I ended up at the wanna be manor wanna be manor, what a place to be wanna be manor, it's not for me wanna be manor wanna be manor

I want to be a Cowboy I'm going to be a Cowboy I'm born to be a Cowboy I want to be a Cowboy A Cowboy! Uh-huh Tonight we're taking my fast car Were gonna go down to the Cowboy bar I'm gonna wait till the club is full and I'm gonna ride the mechanical bull Cowboy look is the one I sought Can't change now cause the clothes are bought To be a true Cowboy was my fate I can't help it if I was born late All the Cowgirls in their Stetson hats and their tight fitting jeans so they don't look fat We'll all be listening to the Cowboy tunes and stomp around like a bunch of goons Cowboy look is the one I sought Can't change now cause the clothes are bought To be a true cowboy was my fate I can't help it if I was born late We're all OD'd on the Olden West seein' who's Cowboy clothes look the best I can ride that phony bull so damn good Sometimes I think I'm Clint Eastwood I know I'm a Cowboy deep inside My hat band's made out of synthetic rattle snake hide After a couple shit kickin' Cowboy movies I check out the Cowboy scene down at Zubie's Find out who all fights the best We start fights with them punks at the Cuckoo's Nest Those damn punks are crazy (though) and meaner than a bull in a rodeo You call me an Urban clone of course Big deal if I'm afraid to ride a horse With a broken nose and a fucked up knee Maybe this Cowboy scene just ain't for me Yee Haw ( I couldn't make it as a Punker )

Seven hits of L and nobody could tell So I spent every dime just to get to Aniehem I was in the Magic Kingdom Now I'm in the Carribean You get something really wicked when you spend an E-ticket High adventure on the sea, but it's not the life for me Now those harry tatooed pirates are all chasing after me I was threatened with a knife by a pirate playing fife Now I'm sailing for my life thanks to LSD 25 Where can I hide? I don't want to buy a bride I'm alone as I float Hey, there were others in my boat Up ahead, one of the men he said he would be my friend He'd guide me to the hole If I deeded him my soul To the hole I didn't make it That doesn't mean he didn't take it He laughed at my plight He said you'll be one of us tonight High adventure on the sea, but it's not the life for me Now those harry tatooed pirates are all chasing after me I was threatened with a knife by a pirate playing fife Now I'm sailing for my life thanks to LSD 25 He was right, I'm still here as I have been, for over a year With my last bit of hope, a tin can and rope I just want to break free But I can't get away No I can't get away cause that damn dog's got the key No one listens as I tell of my ordeal in this cell They stand right by but they don't fell Is this for real? Is this for real!

about

This EP was recorded at Unicorn studios in Santa Monica in 1982. It was the first non Bad Religion release for Epitaph Records. The band at the time were proteges of TSOL. When the EP was released, the song Urban Struggle quickly achieved high rotation on KROQ in Los Angeles and a few other stations around the country, which was really unusual for a sloppy punk band from Huntington Beach.

Credit goes to Jay Bentley of Bad Religion for discovering the band and signing them to Epitaph which at the time was owned by all members of B.R.

WARNING:
The bonus tracks (which are only included in the digital download) are a vulgar sexist, homophobic, disaster from another era, and a previous singer who was part of a generation that looked for any means possible to shock society. They were broadcast in 1983 live on the radio on KPFK in Los Angeles while tons of stuff was being thrown all over the place making it difficult to even perform at all.

Agreed, the banter is juvenile and the singer and the bass player at the time weren't very good at it, but there's nothing we can do about it now. If you are under 18 ,do not order these recordings. But if you like punk rock. This is the real deal as it was done in the early era.
