There are two catchy songs on Sonny & the Sunsets' Tomorrow Is Alright (Fat Possum, 2010): the first track, "Too Young To Burn", and the second track, "Death Cream" (see lyrics below). The rest of the album has yet to settle in, though from what I have listened to so far, the songs tend more towards a Jonathan Richmond kitchen party than Doug Yule standing in for Lou Reed.

DEATH CREAM
(Sonny Smith)

And I find a strange tube
On the seat of my car
Full of cream
So I put it on my arm
And I went downtown
All the way downtown
And I took my tube
And I spread it all around
D-D-D-Death Cream
D-D-D-Death Cream

And I went to your house
Saw your mother on the porch
She says, Hand me my wig, Boy
My head is kinda sore
And I didn’t say nothing
Nothing more was said
But I gave her some cream
For her head instead
D-D-D-Death Cream
D-D-D-Death Cream

And I see your sister
She says, What’s new?
So I showed her my tube
She says, Woo-hoo
Well I tried to leave
She wouldn’t let me leave
I said, You’ve got to take a squeeze
You’ve got to see the cream
D-D-D-Death Cream
D-D-D-Death Cream

And I got to her room
We were eating pills and drinking booze
You said, What’s new?
So I showed you my tube
And I put it on you
And you put it on me
When they found our bodies
All they said was Death Cream
D-D-D-Death Cream
D-D-D-Death Cream
D-D-D-Death Cream
D-D-D-Death Cream
