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
