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

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.

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)

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

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

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

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)

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
10.
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

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
12.
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
13.
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

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

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?

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

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
