Track Name: Alimony
I like frogs and little rocks
I love boys and pretty thoughts
I want a car, a house, a dog
Oh won't you dance with me?

We'll stay up late and watch the sky
as nightbirds chirp their mating cries
Oh hold me close, I'll kiss your neck
Oh won't you marry me?

I'm not a girl who wants too much
just love and care and baby smocks
and please don't smoke or drink or talk
I'm sensitive, you see

Oh if you try to leave me though
I'll tie you into little knots
I'll tell the judge you're such a fuck
and take alimony

As daughter grows she learns that men
are stupid, selfish, stick with friends
to gain a man's protection, then
compliance is the key
Track Name: London
I want a big black cup of coffee
I want a condom made of cheese
I want to ride that train to London
I want to get her on her knees

I want a Steel Reserve forty
I want to drink it at a party
and if the bands suck
at least my friends agree with me

I have a birthday coming up
I hope my dad gives me a hundred bucks
or at least something i can sell for money
so I can splurge on speed on tour

Your eyes and my smile
we could cut our faces in half and trade sides for a while

Your hair and my lungs
we could tie the two together
I'd drown, you'd scream
it would be fun
Track Name: Peter Loves a Boy
Peter loves a boy
Peter loves a boy
He told me, he said
He told me when he kissed me
by the south-out lake

I never held his hair
I never held his hair before
I never
by the south-out lake

I love you Peter
Track Name: Dramamine
For the moment I can see way better than I've ever seen
But I could use your lips on me and a little bit of dramamine
Track Name: Last night I went drinkin'
Last night I went drinkin'
just like the other nights before
last night I got to thinkin'
what's the use anymore
'cause every night I'm drinkin'
I never sing anymore
I only sing when I'm bored
I bang out chords like they're chores

I've taken all the drugs I can find
talk to pretty ladies all the time
but sex don't mean as much as it used to
I find myself just fuckin' to pass the time

And I'm drinkin'
and my belly fills with bile
then after a while
I lose my head and I get wild

Last night I went drinkin'
I had a run-in with my dad
he told me, "Son, you're out of line"
"Why don't you go to class?"
"Why are you so mad?"

I didn't know what to say
but hey
I still had some wine in my closet
Track Name: Kaylor will you buy us beer
Kaylor will you buy us beer?
You're lovely, yes we love you dear.
Oh please come back with a bottle or two?
We'll drink so we forget the girls we love!

Mother's warmth or Sally's kiss?
I can't decide which more I miss!
But father beat my mother so,
he drank so he'd forget the girl he loved!

John drinks nine and John drinks ten,
Will drinks three but he's better off then!
I drink four and then some more,
I take a drink for every girl I've loved!

Now I drink most every day,
it's the new, fantastic, fashionable way!
I drink with friends, we drink because:
We all miss our mothers' love.
Track Name: Ugly
I am falling to your white cigarette
and nervous in my touch
red makeup hides with blush

I don't know my line
I don't know you, ugly
I know me, too
I don't want your money

dream of your lipstick, honey
dream of your dark eyes follow me

I never punched a girl
I never wanted to hit you
I never wanted to hurt you

dream of your lipstick, honey
dream of your dark eyes follow me
I am not, i am not so ugly
I want your eyes to follow me
Track Name: my neighborhood
I would like a dirt bike
Oh I fly around my neighborhood
In my new blue shirt

I like to ride my bike at night
Oh I ride around my neighborhood
Oh I feel so nice

I have a pretty girl at home
She's fly
We like to count the flowers and buy nice clothes

I'll never leave my neighborhood
Oh I left my neighborhood
Oh I feel so scared

I found myself a neighborhood I like
I'll never leave my neighborhood
I'll never leave my neighborhood
Track Name: girls play guitars (acoustic)
Girls play guitars it's fuckin' hard
Girls play guitars it's fuckin' hard
Boys wanna be in your band
All you get is horny fans
Girls play guitars, they play guitars

Girls play guitars it's fuckin' hard
Girls play guitars it's fuckin' hard
Everybody thinks you're a slut
All those boys starin' at your butt
Girls play guitars, they play guitars
Track Name: Chinese Slave
I'll buy you anything
even diamond rings
I'll buy a Chinese slave
Anything for you babe

If the hole in your heart still isn't healed
I'll sing you a song and make you a meal
But if that doesn't work babe, don't know what I'll do
Is a Chinese slave not enough, enough for you?

And if the hole in your heart still isn't healed
I'll sing you a song and make you a meal
But if that doesn't work babe, don't know what I'll do
Is a Chinese slave not enough, enough for you?

If the flowers in your head would grow back
then I'd take you to the movies, buy a drink and a snack
A film that you like, one where a jerk dumps a girl
And if I fall asleep you can tell me I'm perfect

And if the hole in your heart still isn't healed
I'll sing you a song and make you a meal
But if that doesn't work babe, don't know what I'll do
Is a Chinese slave not enough, enough for you?

I luv you Jamie Stewartttttttt
