Track Name: All My Friends are Turning Parisian
All my friends are putting me down with the crazy things they do.
I say “hello” I say “good bye” and they just say “au revoir(do)”
And it’s making me mad so mad mad
It’s making me mad so mad so mad so mad
Mr. Doctor I think i got amnesia cause all my friends are turning Parisian.
Invite ’em to my house to drink some brew and watch old Roger Maris
They got a corkscrew and a bottle of champagne
And they’re singing “I love Paris”
“In the summer, winter, springtime and fall”
“When it likes to sizzle”
“When always drizzles”
Mr. Doctor I think i got amnesia cause all my friends are turning Parisian.
Brian changed his name is Jacque
And Virgil’s got shit on his socks
John says he’s doing “tres bon” eating finger lickin’ “chickqueon”
And it’s making me mad so mad mad
It’s making me mad so mad mad so mad
Mr. Doctor I think i got amnesia cause all my friends are turning Parisian.
Track Name: Elite Manilla
She's so divine.
Turpentine.
A pulp emission, a used transmission.
A cloudy day by the bay
Talking about elite Manilla, alright.

Green foam.
All alone.
Trailer home, it's home grown,
Crow bone, chromosome,
Talking about baby's in black, alright.

She said she was from the elite, (Elite!)
She said it, she said it all night, (All night!)
She said she was from the elite, (Elite!)
She said it. (Now! 1-2-3-4!)

She's so divine.
Turpentine.
A pulp emission, a used transmission.
A cloudy day by the bay
Talking about elite Manilla, alright.

Honky Tonk! [x3]
Track Name: Bright Lights
The night is dark, the rain comes down.
My baby's driving on the backside of town.
I know she'll be here, no need to fear.
Anticipating because I'm waiting for those

Bright lights
Coming down the street
Coming to get me,
Yeah only me.

Well I've been waiting all of the day.
And now it's dark and baby's on her way.
Her engine's roaring, full steam ahead.
She's driving me crazy, outside my head.

I'm talking 'bout those bright lights
Coming down the street
Coming to get me,
Yeah only me.

Staring out my window, shutters are wide open,
Staring at the moon, baby will be here soon.

I'm talking 'bout those bright lights
Coming down the street
Coming to get me,
Yeah only me.

Well I'm a' talking 'bout those bright lights... [x4]
Track Name: Everybody's Baby
I sit at home with my head in hand and it lingers,
Why does my baby got a ring on her every finger?

One from the neighbor and two from the boy next door,
Three four and five from the guys from the defensive line.

Mother better talk to your daughter,

'Cause she is everybody's baby,
She's everybody's girl.
She's everybody's baby,
She's everybody's girl.

I take her to the football game and everybody knows her name.
5 Goodyear blimps and their reading "Will you marry me Jane?"

Mother better talk to your daughter,

'Cause she is everybody's baby,
She's everybody's girl.
She's everybody's baby,
She's everybody's girl.
"I want you to talk to me!"

And don't cha know that I really like a what you do,
But everything you do you do for the whole world too.

Mother better talk to your daughter,

'Cause she is everybody's baby,
She's everybody's girl.
She's everybody's baby,
She's everybody's girl.
Track Name: What Do You Get?
What do you get?
What do you get?
When you put gum in your best friend’s hair
Put a tack on the teacher’s chair
Push your little sister down the stairs
What do you get?
When you knock down the neighbor’s chimes
Steal a quarter from the March of Dimes
Speak out for the mimes.
What do you get?
When you put sand in your dad’s lube
Call your best friend a goob
Write a song called “Hey Jude”
What do you get?
What do you get?
Track Name: Hairdoo
She’s got big big feet
She’s got bigger buck teeth
She’s got bones that creak
She’s got a three boot beak
She’s always got the flu
But I love her hairdo
See that girl walking down the street
She’s got more than weight on her feet
She’s got a hairdo oh yea.
Standing in line waiting for a train
Big black widow gnawing on her brain
She’s got a hairdo oh yea
Hairdo hairdo what do you do, everytime I see you it makes me come unglued.
See that girl her hairs up and set
Used a whole can of Aquanet
For her hairdo oh yea.
Standing in line at the beauty parlor
Trying to decide what’s her best color
For her hairdo oh yea.
Hairdo hairdo what do you do, everytime I see you it makes me come unglued.
Dippity do give me prell
I don’t care as long as I got a gel
For my hairdo oh yea
It might take mouse put it in my hair
Make my hair as big as Cher’s
Hairdo oh yea.
Hairdo hairdo what do you do, everytime I see you it makes me come unglued.
Track Name: Trinidad Man
Flipping through the yearbook I did see
A pretty pretty baby looking up at me
I’ve never seen that face before
And she was only a sophomore
I searched all over the school
Trying to find that jewel
I asked for the attendance sheet
Said she hadn’t been here for a week
Is she gone with the Trinidad Man?
Is she gone away?
I memorized that picture
I had her in my mind
I went to the brain surgeon
And asked if he could find
That girl in my mind
That girl in my mind
That girl in my mind
That girl in all of my mind
Is she gone with the Trinidad Man?
Is she gone away?
I love her love her love her, I love her love her love her, I love her love her love her, I love her
I love her love her love her, I love her love her love her, I love her love her love her, I love her
Is she gone with the Trinidad Man?
Is she gone away?
Track Name: Superwoman
So you say, you want to learn how to dance,
Ba da ba ba ba-da,

You say all things you want to be,
But you will always be superwoman to me.

So you say, you want to be a star,
Ba da ba ba ba-da,

But you will always be superwoman to me.

'Cause you're super (super) superwoman to me, yeah!
'Cause you're super (super) superwoman to me. That's what you be.
Yeah, that's what you be.

"Ahhh!" "Brian!" "Talk to me, Brian!" "It's okay, Brian!"

James shaved his eyebrows off in the back alley.
James still boycotts grapes grown in the central valley.
"Whoo!"

'Cause you're super (super) superwoman to me, yeah!
'Cause you're super (super) superwoman to me. That's what you be.
Oh, that's what you be. Oh, that's what you be. Oh, that's what you be.
Track Name: Candyshop Bop
Fell in love at the candy shop
When she put a quarter in and started to bop.
She bopped a little here and a whole lot there
Ya bop like that and I can only stare.
Bopped all day until the sun went down
That's when my baby, she stole my frown.
Bopped to the east and she bopped to the west,
Bop like that and I'll love you my best.

'Cause a bop bop baby just a you and me,
Well bop bop bop baby just a wait and see,
Yeah bop bop baby with all your might,
Well a bop bop bopping all through the moonlight.

Gonna put on my blue suede shoes,
Gonna get me rock n roll, I'm sick of these blues,
I'm gonna twist and shout, rattle and roll,
Watch out baby when I hit the floor

I'm gonna shake a hop, do a twist,

Yeah bop bop baby with all your might,
Well a bop bop bopping all through the moonlight.

Track Name: Hey, Stop!
Hey, stop, pretty baby.
There’s something I wanna say.
The way you’re behaving is making me saving my money for a rainy day.
Because I only want something, like your loving, or there’s nothing worthwhile like your smile, when you’re looking down at me from above. I’m in love.
Let’s go out on a date.

Hey, stop, pretty baby.

Let’s go out on a date.

Hey, stop, pretty baby.

Let’s go out on a date.
Track Name: Hick-Up
There's a brand new dance that's going around, it's called the hiccup!
It's faster than a locomotive and a pickup.
You got it in your blood and you got it in your veins,
And you got it beating back and forth dire
ctly to your brain.
You got the picture? You got a hipster.
Well the cats are crazy cuz they know they'll be sweating,
Gonna yell 1-2-3-4 more bar chords!
Doing the Hiccup.

Last time I saw you girl you were so tame.
Next time I saw you you were dancing like a hurricane,
You were spinning like a top, shaking like a mop,
Going so fast got pulled over by a cop, it was a stickup, doing the hiccup.
Flying through the air like a prima ballerina,
Gonna yell 1-2-3-4 more bar chords!
Doing the Hiccup!

"Whoo-Ha!"

So hang on baby got time for one more bar chord.

Doing the Hiccup.
(Well come on baby, won't you dance with me?)
Track Name: She's Coming Over

Collect call, that's all, didn't get a name
I took the bill 'cause I knew it was my dame.

She was coming for my loving and I'm feeling paralyzed.
Fixed the house, swept the floor,
