about

The Del Fi's Toronto, Ontario

I don’t know what The Del Fi’s are; the more I think about it, the more I don’t know what to say. But I know it’s right, and I know it’s good. I know it works. I mean, it’s Jerry Leger’s thing, but when I asked him what he would say The Del Fi’s are, all he would tell me is that I (meaning me) am The Del Fi’s, just as you (meaning you) are The Del Fi’s. And because you are you, you understand. ... more

Track Name: Rockin' In The Funeral Home #1
Rockin' In The Funeral Home (Leger)

Talking backwards and drinking til it's gone
Playing out of tune pianos
Where nothing sounds wrong
It's New Year's Eve
The Saints are crashing in
Pick on that guitar
Pick up that violin

Chorus:
We're gonna get happy
Gonna get free
It's a rock 'n' roll party
And they're dancing for me
Gonna get happy
Gonna get stoned
It's a rock 'n' roll party
In the funeral home

Stinking of whisky and looking to fall in love
With a beautiful girl
She never does what she should
She grew up honest but she grew up fond
Of that spot over the hill
Where they play them naughty songs

Chorus

Waking up on the floor not knowing where I am
Electric light buzzing and cutting through my head
If I could go back in time
I'd tell her I loved her smile
And nighttime is the righttime for something wild

Chorus
Track Name: Brigitte Bardot
Brigitte Bardot (Leger)

High roller
Blade thrower
Tongue twister
Time shifter

Bad luck charm
Two broken arms
Real good thinker
Crowd Pleaser

Talking like Brando
Looking for a Bardot
Leather jacket
Bar room matches

Wednesday night
Same Saturday lights
Half your paycheck
Towards the bar's rent

Young and buried
Financially married
Betting on divorces
For the wild horses

Invisible man
He's back at it again
But we're all creatures
From some b-movie feature

Leave the door unlocked
No reason to knock
We're done rehearsing
Time for bare floor dancing
Track Name: It's Always A Saturday Night
It's Always a Saturday Night (Leger)

It's always a Saturday night
When you don't have a job
You lost it when the whiskey won
Now the parties never stop
You got enough to get you through til November's rent
Sell the car for December's
And then just sleep in the vents

Chorus:
Saturday night
Don't ever leave, don't ever go
Saturday night
I love you so

It's always a Saturday night
When you don't know the date
The blinds always stay down
And you threw the clocks away
The corner store has a big sale
On baked beans and frozen pies
So smoke another cigarette
And punch out the lights

Chorus

It's always a Saturday night
When you can't remember your name
The friends they come or they go
And the girls do the same
But it's so much better than working nine to six
Hungover in the morning
And by the end tired and depressed

Chorus
Track Name: She's Got A Warrant
She's Got a Warrant (Leger)

She's a pretty little thing
Love's me when I'm jonesing
Laughs off my funny remarks
Never tries to own me

Chorus:
She thinks I'm crazy
But then again
She's got a warrant
For killing a man

Love her through the battles
Under the 3 o clock moon
When the night feels like ours
And nothing can murder the mood

Chorus

The comfort of her skin
And her wild dark curls
Close by my intentions
Demanding all that's good in this world

Chorus
Track Name: Baby Coming Up The River
Baby Coming Up The River (Leger)

I don't wait for the sun
You can take it away
Midnight waltz
Wrap all your worries in dreams
I wanna lose my mind in the stars

Chorus:
Baby coming up the river
Baby coming up the river
Baby coming up the river
Come on home

I can't take all these expectations
But I'm miles away from killing time
Here are the graves of imagination
Dug 'em up
See what was left to find

Chorus
Track Name: Who's Been Haunting You?
Who's Been Haunting You? (Leger)

She always waves right back
He don't always seem satisfied
I wonder what he's been thinking
Doesn't walk with any kind of mission
He don't know where it's leading to

Who's been haunting you?
Who's been haunting you?

Like a tired old bell
That rings for the lucky
Rings for those you don't wish well
Hang it on the wall
Break it apart
Put it back together for a brand new start
But it don't make it true

Who's been haunting you?
Who's been haunting you?

She smiles past the thought
He's a good old boy
But boys don't always know what they want
When it all gors pale
all in a row
Who's gonna save his poor young soul?
Sometimes you don't make it through

Who's been haunting you?
Who's been haunting you?
Track Name: Tabletop Jukebox
Tabletop Jukebox (Leger)

Nobody robs trains anymore
I guess I'm too sentimental
Or robs the rich and gives to the poor
And waits for the signal

Sizzling burgers for my lady and I
Neon shining bright and strong
Tabletop jukebox
A song a dime
A whole lotta shakin' going on

Chorus:
Bring me back, bring me back
Don't wanna go home
Bring me back, 'cross the tracks
That's where I belong

Things are getting a little more strange around here
Like in a science fiction novel
The future never felt so near
Distracted and hollow

Chorus

Poor boy on the corner
Can't see the clear blue sky
Just tall buildings going further and further
In a town full of pride

But if everything goes in cycles
She'll be coming 'round the mountain again
With her sun painted freckles
And some money she can lend

Chorus
Track Name: Noisy Bars
Noisy Bars (Leger)

Got me a girl
Sings in a rock 'n' roll band
Got me a girl
Sings in a rock 'n' roll band
And I visit her backstage whenever I can

Sometimes I sing those cowboy songs
Sometimes I sing all those old cowboy songs
And I twang and I holler
Whenever she grabs a hold of my gun

I travel and I play all those noisy bars
I travel and I play all those noisy bars
And when I'm far from my woman
She lets those other girls strum my guitar

Got me a girl
Sings in a rock 'n' roll band
Got me a girl
Sings in a rock 'n' roll band
And everything she does
I totally understand

Got me a girl
Sings in a rock 'n' roll band
Got me a girl
Sings in a rock 'n' roll band
Looks good in the spotlight
Looks fine laying in my bed
Track Name: The Junk Today
The Junk Today (Leger)

Things you dare to do
You take away all the love
Just me and my records
Old Hank and Ernest Tubb
I cry out loud
Have nothing left to say
The bottle last night
The junk today

Smashed every bulb
Ripped the cords out of the wall
You packed and left last tuesday
Well, you done that before
And it makes me so blue
Wondering where you'll stay
The bottle last night
The junk today

The bottle last night kept me warm
I hear my old saint's say
It'll be over soon
God, please help me
I've lost my mind frame
She left without regret
It pains me to say

I catch your reflection
Hear your voice in the room
Footsteps down the hallway
A whistle to the tune
But it ain't real
I know you're faraway
The bottle last night
The junk today

It don't hurt anymore
I wish you could see
Ya, if you saw me now
You wouldn't even recognize me
The coming down
The come what mays
The bottle last night
The junk today
Track Name: (True Love) You Can't Kill It
(True Love) You Can't Kill It (Leger)

I'm saying goodbye to my baby
I'm leaving
I don't know the next time
I'll see her smile

I'm heading off to war
I'll be fighting for true love
You can't kill it if you tried

Kiss me baby one more time
Before my fateful ride
Promise me sweetheart
You'll always have me on your mind

A young man never gets scared
Of what might be standing there
My love, see the truth on my eyes

I'm heading off to war
I'll be fighting for true love
You can't kill it if you tried

Rockin' In The Funeral Home (Leger)

Talking backwards and drinking til it's gone
Playing out of tune pianos

Chorus:
We're gonna get happy
Gonna get free
It's a rock 'n' roll party
And they're dancing for me
Gonna get happy
Gonna get stoned
It's a rock 'n' roll party

She grew up honest but she grew up fond
Of that spot over the hill
