Track Name: You Got Me Started
You got me started (x3)
Where're we going?
Got me all worked up
I just can't wait
I hope the very near future
Will reveal my fate
Experience has taught me
That life can be a test
But hope beats eternal
In a young man's breast
You got me thinkin'
Well, kinda thinkin'
You got me workin' -where you gonna take me?
It sure is hot in here / Ineed a drink of water
You got me workin' honey / Where're we headed?
After all this time / about nine minutes
You can tell that I'm even deeper in it
I can't back down / I'm goin' insane
You sure did obliterate my so-called brain
You got me started (x3)
Where're we going?
Got me all worked up
I just can't wait
I hope the very near future
Will reveal my fate
Experience has taught me
That life can be a test
But hope beats eternal
In a young man's breast
Track Name: Maybe This Is Our Year
Maybe this is our year
'Cuz there's a chance we're not dead quite yet
Maybe this'll be different -let's give it a shot
Maybe this is our year
Maybe this is our chance
And all the bad times are over
Maybe we did our time- maybe not
But maybe this is our year
Everyone says it's over / Everybody says we're done
Tell me pretty baby when did we start to care about everyone
(They're just nosy)
Say we still get our ass kicked / And it all goes up in smoke
We'll still have each other and that'll be okeydoke
We're gonna throw a party / To celebrate our success
If it all doesn't go exactly as planned, well, we'll have a helluva mess
Maybe I need a psychiatrist / To tell me why I shouldn't feel good
Maybe instead I might dance you all over the neighborhood.
Track Name: The Strongman of North America (Bedhead Mix)
THE STRONGMAN OF NORTH AMERICA
(lyrics: David Greenberger, music: Chandler Travis)

Yelled at feet to wake them. that worked out fine
Trinkets dropped by pathways, found them every time
Down a long, tile hallway, little hand drops free
Barefoot as the waves are chased back out to sea

While I’m not the man I was, here I am because
I once was the Strongman of North America

Alphabet, new letters I made up for you
Riddles in a bottle, everything was new
Writing down the numbers as the clock tells
Watch the glowing stars fade, one by one they fell

While I’m not the man I was, here I am because
I once was the Strongman of North America

When you thought the chimney might be falling
So frightened
That’s when I stepped up into my calling
The strongman

When you let the world of love embrace you
Completely
Then was time to set aside my costume
You made me
The strongman
Retired
The strongman
for you

These things I remember to my last day
Nothing else has mattered, these thoughts never stray
Down a long, tile hallway little hand drops free
Barefoot as the waves are chased back out to sea

While I’m not the man I was, here I am because
I once was the Strongman of North America

Who would know a shortcut through a cornfield?
The strongman
I drove with both hands on the steering wheel
The strongman

I would like a glass of water please, and thank you
Barely like a strongman, I am weak
But you made me
The strongman
Retired
The strongman
For you

(published by Modern Variety Music admin. by Bug-Farfy/BMI)
Track Name: By the Way
By the way, I’ve got much to tell you
Like the way I was dreaming
By the way, the special things you do
Like the way you know my meaning
All the way, breakfast and the sky blue
By the way, time froze
Take away not one single moment
That's the way we chose
Tried to say how to slow the clock down
By the way, you were dreaming
On my way, nights turned into seconds
It's ok, we were sleeping
By the way, every star can find us
On our way, o bright
As the bay disappears behind us
Another day held tight
All the way, breakfast and the sky blue
By the way, time froze
As the bay disappears behind us
Another day held tight
Track Name: Untitled
Ahhh, ah x 2
Ahh, ahh; ah, ah, ah, ah
Ahh, ahh; ah, ah, ah
Untitled -untitled'
Cause we don't think it absolutely needs a title
Untitled -untitled'
Cause if it's really any good it shouldn't need a title
“Big Boxcar”? “Slow Sandwich”?
“Blue Sandbar”? Can't pick which;
Leave it untitled.
Ahhh, ah x 2
Ahhh, ah x 2
Track Name: Grand Rt. St. John
Hey, welcome back to Grand Rt. St. John
We sure missed you, man, but life goes on
We both had our bumps and bruises since those days
Our share of junks and boozes through the haze
Nothing's changed all that much on Grand Rt. St. John
Gone to hell and back, but life goes on
I don't know how we made it -what's the odds?
And only slightly faded, oh my god
I been right here while you been goin' everywhere
Cleanin' up the mess, not sittin' in my easy chair
You been off galavantin'; I've been here to let the cat in
Now you drag your sorry ass back in time for Sunday mass
Hey, welcome back to Grand Rt. St. John
We sure missed you man, but life goes on
Somehow the sweet magnolia blooms in spring
Surprise, surprise- there's still a song to sing
Track Name: Bobby Brown
Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown,
Brown Bob Brown
Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown,
Brown Bob(REPEAT)
Hey! Hey! Hey! Heeeyyyy...
Ahhh ahhh x 3
Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown,
Brown Bob Brown
Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown, Bobby Brown,
Brown Bob
Track Name: Here For a Reason
Why would you mistake me
For one of your younger boys
You can't fight or fake me
I'm here to make some noise
I'm here for a reason
Baby when I first called you
You really shoulda called me back
That might've saved some problems
And kept me from blowin' my stack
I'm here for a reasonI've gotta straighten you out
This is not show and tell, girl
And I'm not Mr. Drew
I've seen a whole lot of this world
But right now I'm watchin' you
And I'm here for a reason
I better straighten you out (x2)
Track Name: Break the Chain
On your mark / Getting set / Don't forget
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,
Blast off, blast off, Houston!
You made me- you can break me
You can crush my spine with a well-placed kick
And it's always stormy weather
So why not put our heads together
Don't tell me the same old lies
Give me the alibis / I already know
Could this one end differently
Could you be true to me
Let's break the chain
Track Name: Air Running Backwards
Can't go much faster, can't make it right
Think of you and drive into the night
It's too hard to read a map, it tells too much
It's all paper, I want your touch
Touch my hand and touch my heart
Drop into my world on a feather dart
Made for two, just hang on and pull me up to you
Air, running backwards
More air, too late
Air, inside of you
Do you even know that you take mine away?
When will it fall in place, maybe it can't
Crazy to think it will when you hold out your hand
Touch my hand and touch my heart
Drop into my world on a feather dart
Made for two, just hang on and pull me up to you
Air, running backwards
More air, too late
Air, inside of you
Do you even know that you take mine away?
Can't go much faster, can't make it right
Think of you and drive into the night
Track Name: Going Back to Work Tomorrow
When Delores gets distracted, she tends to think out loud
She's over active, because she knows she's
Going back to work tomorrow, back to the same old jive
Going back to work tomorrow, nine to five
Going back to work tomorrow, back to the same old grind
Can't call in sick, can't use that trick
These could be her last kicks
Going back to work tomorrow, back to the same old jive
Going back to work tomorrow, nine to five
Can't move, can't think, crap job, red ink
One more swell lap around the rink
Tell my friends that I'm not coming
Back until I'm good and ready
I need sun and air and water
This dumb job is way too steady
Going back to work tomorrow, back to the same old jive
Going back to work tomorrow, back to the nine to five
Going back to work tomorrow, back to the same old grind
Going back to work tomorrow, nine to five
Track Name: Sure Gonna Miss You
Sure gonna miss you / we're all gonna miss you
I'm sure you don't need a lecture
Not right now
And you're not really here to talk to anyhow
We all knew the day would come
When you'd have to go
Go back home
Sure gonna miss you / Yeah, we're all gonna miss you
I feel like you're still beside me
Don't know why
And my hear can't decide if it wants to laugh or cry
I'm so glad that you were here
So sad you're gone
Gone on home
Sure gonna miss you / Yeah, we're all gonna miss you
Track Name: When the Moon Shines
When the moon shines / And hangs down low
We'll stay all night / To watch it glow
Cause when the moon shines / You know for sure
You'll always want / To be with her
Moonshine / Take me far away from all that fuss
Now I'm a million miles away wrapped up in us
Fireflies / speckling the sky along the shore
Bye, bye / floatin' out to sea – don't need no more
Track Name: E
Here's that chord you wanted
Here's that chord called “E”
Here's that chord you wanted
What more do you want from me?!?
CHORUS: It's E! (Eeeeeeee!!) x4
Five zillion years ago,
When the world was still a swamp
Back before anyone even tried to be good
Back when there was nothing to talk about
I'm talking about way way back (way back!)
I said way back (way back!)
Back before trees got legs
Back when bugs was big
Something with a skull
And something like a backbone
Rose up out of the tarpit
I said he rose up out of the tarpitI said he rose!!!
CHORUS: It's E! (Eeeeeeee!!) x4
And then civilization came along
And tried to make that scream into a song
Took that same old thing they used to play
And yuppified it into A
And that worked for a little while,
'Cause everybody likes to be modern
But then they started getting a little restless
And then they were getting a little bored
And then they wanted more!
So scientists developed the C chord
A chord that would go with anything!
A brand new Kellogg's-like breakfast chord!
This led to radios and morning shows
Which led to desperation! (Desperation!)
Shininess! (Shininess!)
Exercise! (Exercise!)
Skiing! (Skiing!)
Oh, no!
They didn't wanna go back! (x2)
You couldn't drag 'em back!
Till there was no choice!
No choice and nothing but
CHORUS: It's E! (Eeeeeeee!!) x4
Well, you can B flat, But F,
If you really wanna C sharp,
CHORUS: It's E! (Eeeeeeee!!) x4
Track Name: Your Wife and Mother
If your wife and your mother was drowning tell me which one would you save?
Would you save your dear wife, or the mother that gave you birth?
Remember, you can get another wife but you can never get another mother
So tell me, my friend, which one would you save?
Would you save your wife?(no no no)
Or would you save your mother (now you're talking to me, friend)
Would you save your wife? (no no no)
Or would you save your mother (now you're talking to me, friend)
Remember, you can get another wife but you can never get another mother
So tell me, my friend, which one would you save?
Track Name: Human
Got opposite thumbs / And a taste for meat
I walk upright / On my own two feet
Need shelter / Got glass and steel
Need to travel / Got a rubber wheel
My brain is so big / Barely fits in my skull
Communicate / Via miracle
Made up a box / Called it Pandora
Opened it up / Savored its aura
CHORUS: I’m human / You man?
Me man / It's true man
WE ALL MAN / WE ALL HUMAN
Took the atom / And made it split
Then roasted a pig / In an open pit
Got a Satellite / Right up above me
Gives me tweets / From David Duchovny
Dug up the iron / Melted it down
made a big shovel / and buried my town
Took a hollow stick / Flled it with ink
Wrote down what God said / Didn’t even blink
CHORUS
Track Name: Make Yourself Happy
If you're looking for someone to make you happy
You're looking in the wrong place- you've got to
Make yourself happy / make yourself happy
You got plenty of time, plus you're easy to find
So put a smile on your own damn face
You don't have to be a hermit you don't have to be a monk
But good luck on finding someone else to straighten out your junk
Make yourself happy (x 2)
You don't have to go far, and you've already got your own car
Give romance a little break
Give yourself some flowers or give yourself some meat
No one knows better when you need a little treat
Make yourself happy (x 2)
Don't be begging for bones, you've got stand up on your own
Two feet if you wanna feel reet
If they rock your world, you're gonna wanna make a fuss
But don't be disappointed when they're only one of us
Make yourself happy (x 2)
Like it says in the song, you shoulda saw it comin' all along
Just be glad you got a seat
