Track Name: Married or Buried
Well we'll get married or buried
Have a very nice year!
Yeah we'll get bleary and harried
And drink lots of nice Beer!

Well we'll get homesick and lonely
Forty years of cheer!
But the girls will be friendly
When they drink cheap beer!
Track Name: 1967
Bad cars and blowing out
Seems like we better felt
Flowers they smell so gay
I love you and I love May

Songs stories and your hair
I like your flower chair
Swim with me and you will see
Cut the rope and climb a tree

The world is big from way up here
Track Name: Let's Call All The Girls We Know
Let's call all the girls we know
Get drunk on wine until they blow
Tell all their friends and mothers that they're hoes

Then afterwards recount our deeds
To winos, druggies, cocks and thieves
Who by some instance are our only friends

We'll be loved throughout the land!
We'll be loved throughout the land!
We'll be loved throughout the land!
We'll be loved throughout the land!
Track Name: Barbara carved a single telephone line
Find me when i fall asleep
don't be bothered, don't hate my dream
I do weird things to myself sometimes
Barbara carved a single telephone line

I'm uncertain if I'm still alive
I go softly, I talk between the lines
are you hungry? Have a piece of my mind
I'm just saying, bluegrass is playing all the time
Track Name: smoke cigarettes
waste your life away, you smoke cigarettes
waste your life away, you don't give a shit
waste you life away, you smoke cigarettes yeah
Track Name: Bile them cabbage down
Bile them cabbage down boys
Turn them hoe cakes 'round
The only song that I can sing is bile them cabbage down

Took my gal to the blacksmith's shop to have her mouth made small
Turned around a time or two and swallowed shop and all

Bile them cabbage down boys
Turn them hoe cakes 'round
The only song that I can sing is bile them cabbage down

How that mule would kick, he kicked with his dying breath
Shoved his hindfeet down his throat and kicked himself to death

Bile them cabbage down boys
Turn them hoe cakes 'round
The only song that I can sing is bile them cabbage down
Track Name: Painted
Well I'm goin' to Alaska where the bricks are made of Alaskan Ice
I wish I was a farmer, then I could grow potatoes and eat them with rice
There are few things you can get in this world better than something to eat
But I'd rather play my guitar and sleep

We're all painted
Track Name: Bored
I'm not bad, i'm not a sinner, i'm not a killer, i'm not a whore
i'm none of those things that you wrote on my door
well maybe on sunday we'll get up early for chores
but i'd rather play with myself and be bored

there's some things you can't have, and some things you want
but honestly baby you've got a sweet cunt
so if we made out then you'd let me get deep
but you'll never do that so i'll keep my hard to myself

I'm not bad, i'm not a sinner, i'm not a killer, i'm not a whore
i'm none of those things that you wrote on my door
well maybe on sunday we'll get up early for chores
but i'd rather play with myself and be bored

it's easy to write a bad song you don't like
but if you put in no effort it sounds rather nice
i'd like to sing nice songs 'bout the birds and the bees
but i can't be honest 'bout things such as these

I'm not bad, i'm not a sinner, i'm not a killer, i'm not a
Track Name: lazy afternoon
Lazy afternoon, they are all the same
Swimmin' in the water, they're just salt and blood

Lazy afternoon, they are all the same
Standin' at the altar, they're just bread and blood

So if I die, will you wake me?
Will you read the note I leave?
Track Name: Girls Play Guitars
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: Insincere Song
well we'll all share our feelings
what we're all really meaning
in our garden lives

well we'll all get together
in our blanket of feathers
where the party dies

all the windows have curtains
and probably sure then
that i hope that i really die

under my blankets
i'm fairly untouchable
warm and asleep and alive

but you've got your covers
you're steely and smothered
and the water fight

all the windows have curtains
and probably sure then
that i hope that i really die

all the windows have curtains
and probably sure then
that i hope that i really die

all the steely white horses
they are better ridden
by the stormy windy black sky

well we'll all share our feelings
what we're all really meaning
in our garbage lives
