    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is an excellent skateboarding game for the PSX.
    After looking at the FAQs for THPS2, and seeing there was a lyrics FAQ
    for it, I decided to do one for THPS1. There are 11 songs on the THPS1
    soundtrack, and here are the lyrics. WARNING: Some of these songs contain
    explicit lyrics.

    1. "Police Truck"
    Performed by: Dead Kennedys
    Album: "Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death"
    
    Tonight's the night that we got the truck
    We're goin' downtown gonna beat up drunks
    Your turn to drive I'll bring the beer
    It's the late late shift to one to fear
    And ride, ride how we ride
    We ride, lowride
    
    It's roundup time where the good whores meet
    Gonna drag one screaming off the street
    And ride, ride how we ride
    Got a black uniform and a silver badge
    Playin' cops for real, playin' cops for pay
    Let's ride, lowride
    
    Pull down your dress here's a kick in the ass
    Let's beat you blue 'til you shit in your pants
    Don't move, child gotta big black stick
    There's six of us, babe so suck on my dick
    And ride, ride how we ride
    Let's ride, lowride
    
    The left newspapers migth whine a bit
    But the guys at the station they don't give a shit
    Dispatch calls 'Are you doin' something wicked?'
    'No siree, Jack, we're just givin' tickets'
    As we ride, ride how we ride
    Let's ride, lowride

    3. "Vilified"
    Perfromed by: Even Rude
    Album: "Superabsorbant"
    
    I thought you wanted to be my friend. I thought you wanted to be my... 
    
    When-I see your face for real, I stop-and then I clear my through
    When I-try to talk again, I can't-and in a flash you're gone.
    When I-wish upon a star, I get-a good, good view
    I'm outside in your back yard, watching everything you do. 
    
    I'm just a man, that's all I am, but I can take it just like any other
    can. 
    
    I've been down with the criminal minded, oops rewind it, I gotta go back
    now.
    When I was known as the TV kid, sometimes I hid and looked out my back
    porch.
    Never saw nothin' not worth nuttin' up in the old days.
    It took me a little while to realize the error of my old ways.
    Clean and narrow is the sparrow that never flys straight
    I'm earning my wings and feathers but I don't have it all together yet. 
    
    and I-can't get through this pain, that's why I'm hawking you.
    can't get through this pain, that's why I'm stalking you.
    and I can take it just like any other can... 
    
    C 
    
    I'm just a man, that's all I am and I can take it just like any other can
    
    
    I learned to hate the public, I love it. No one talks to me, like I'm
    above it, so shove it. 
    I was the bandit, el bandito, kinda the fly one. I tried to find a job
    before this, but I couldn't find one.
    So I took it upon myself to think and be a changed man, 
    reaping what I sew and treating my cancer with a firm hand
    try walking over me now, see if I don't snatch you and catch you up 
    in the web that has more bridges than that book you read 
    
    and I-can't get through this pain, that's why I'm hawking you
    can't get through this pain, that's why I'm stalking you
    and I can take it just like any other can 
    
    I can see her-punk better grow up
    wasting my time-you better not show up
    in the bushes-tomorrow night
    the button she pushes, but that shit ain't right! 
    
    C 
    
    I'm vilified.

    4. "Superman"
    Perfromed by: Goldfinger
    Album: "Hang-ups"
    
    Get up, get up, get up, get up...
    
    So here I am
    Doin' everything I can
    Holdin' on to what I am
    Pretendin' I'm a superman
    
    I'm tryin' to keep 
    The ground on my feet
    It seems the world is fallin' down around me
    The nights are long
    I'm singin' this song
    To try and make the answers more than maybe
    
    And I'm so confused about what to do
    Sometimes I wanna throw it all away
    
    So here I am 
    Growin' older all the time
    Lookin' older all the time 
    Feelin' younger in my mind
    
    And here I am 
    Doin' everything I can
    Holdin' on to what I am
    Pretendin' I'm a superman
    
    I'm tryin' to sleep 
    I lost count of sheep
    My mind is racin' faster every minute
    What could I do more
    Yeah, I'm really not sure
    I know I'm runnin' circles but I can't quit 
    
    And I'm so confused about what to do
    Sometimes I wanna throw it all away
    
    Controllin' everything in sight
    Feelin' weak I don't feel right
    You're tellin' me I have to change
    Tellin' me to act my age
    But if all that I can do
    Is just sit and watch time go
    Then I'll have to say good-bye
    Life's too short to watch it fly
    To watch it fly
    
    So here I am 
    Growin' older all the time
    Lookin' older all the time
    Feelin' younger in my mind
    
    And here I am 
    Doin' everything I can
    Holdin' on to what I am 
    Pretendin' I'm a superman

    5. "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver"
    Perfromed by: Primus
    Album: "Sailing the Seas of Cheese"
    
    Jerry was a race car driver
    And he drove so goddamned fast
    He never did win no checkered flag
    But he never did come in last
    Jerry was a race car driver
    He'd say "El solo number one"
    With a bocephus sticker
    On his 442 he'd light 'em up
    Just for fun
    
    Captain Pierce was a fireman
    Richmond engine #3
    I'll be a wealthy man when I get
    A dime for all the things that
    Man taught to me
    Captain Pierce was a strong man
    Strong as any man alive
    It stuck in his craw that they
    Made him retire at the age of 65
    
    Jerry was a race car driver
    22 years old
    Had too many cold beers one night
    And wrapped himself around a telephone pole.

    8. "Cyco Vision"
    Performed by: Suicidal Tendencies
    Album: "Freedumb"
    
    I got cyco vision
    I use cyco vision
    I see with cyco vision
    I got cyco vision
    
    You tell me what you want me to hear
    I hear it all with my ears
    But that won't do me any use
    So I use my eyes to see the truth
    
    It doesn't matter what you say (bullshit)
    It only matters what you do (no shit)
    You cannot take the easy way with me
    'Cause I got cyco vision
    
    You put a smile upon your face
    To try and hide behind your lies
    But that just magnifies the pain in your soul
    I see with my cyco vision
    
    When you think with all your might (you change)
    Right to wrong and wrong to right (don't change)

    11. "Euro-Barge"
    Performed by: The Vandals
    Album: "Hitler Bad, Vandals Good"
    
    Here in America,
    Respect your fellow man
    Some foreign cultures
    don't understand
    We got this little rule
    And it's called elbowroom
    Pertaining to the special occupancy
    You consume
    If I'm in front of line,
    Then you should stay behind
    until I get my iceless soda.
    It's such a simple thing
    It's called first come first serve
    Wooden clogs that smash my feet
    I really don't deserve
    In every region
    It seems there's a legion
    Of impatient close talking slime,
    That cut in line.
    Barge me with your walkin'
    Spray me with your talkin'
    I am the ambassador
    I'll kick your assador
    What's your affinity
    for my vicinity?
    There's plenty room here
    In your country
    It's just etiquette
    to use deodorant.
    Maybe smelling bad's
    The way you choose to represent
    Boozy and stinkin'
    I smell what your thinkin'
    I just need a little more space
    Get out my face
    Barge me with your walkin',
    Spray me with your talkin'
    Back the fuck up ass hole
    Shut your bread & cheese hole
    Tryin' to make myself clear,
    Give me just a foot here
    You offend my sinus,
    I'll kick your royal highness
    I'll see your euro-barge by friend,
    And raise you one ugly american
    In every region
    It seems there's a legion
    Of impatient close talking slime,
    That cut in line.
    Barge me with your walkin'
    Spray me with your talkin'
    Push you out of the way
    Sock you in the pate'
    Step right off you inbred,
    Hygiene like a deadhead
    I am the ambassador;
    of fuckin' kick your assador
