Track Name: Scrappy Come Home
Scrappy Come Home
They called him Scrappy, he was the one, the best companion, and a lot of fun
With territorial instinct, he ruled the yard at night
Until a big four wheeler, came and took my doggies life

Come on Scrappy where are you, we got a million things to do
I got your chew toy, I got your bone, so c'mon Scrappy please come home

I walked the neighborhood, 100 times
through the dark and silence, I still could hear him whine
Thinking back to the day, when I found him on the road
How could you go and leave me, leave me all alone, no

Come on Scrappy where are you, we got a million things to do
I got your chew toy, I got your bone, so C'mon Scrappy please come home

A red bowl sits empty, on my kitchen floor, I'd give up anything, to fill it just once more
A tattered pillow, a half chewed bone, how could you go and leave me, leave me all alone

Come on Scrappy where are you, we got a million things to do
I got your chew toy, I got your bone, so C'mon Scrappy please come home
(Won't you come home, boy)
Track Name: All I Said
ALL I SAID

Babe I just wanted you to know, that my love for you is right
Babe don't you never never leave me, cause' if you left me I would die.
Sorry don't come very easy, to a man who never tries
So babe don't ya don't ya go and tease me, give me one chance to make it right

My love for you is so much stronger than before, I'd sell my soul 1000 times or more
Babe don't you run away, we'll grow stronger every day,
Cause' I need you and that's all that I can say, yeah I need you and that's all that I can say
Track Name: Holly
Holly

I was in kindergarten eatin glue (when I first saw ya)
when my eyes looked up to you (ya I adored ya)
you were holding that crayola blue (and I adored ya)
like I'd never seen before
I waited patiently until recess came around
I followed you so quietly I didn't even make a sound
Oh Holly I will give my heart to you, I'm true, yeah my first love

I started fixing up my hair, and my friends all stopped and stared
I didn't even care, I'd never felt these thoughts before
We'd sit and share our milk until recess came and gone
And when the day was finally over I'd hold your hand and walk you home
Oh Holly I will give my heart to you, I'm true, yeah my first love

One day I saw you out with Bob it's true, I didn't know what to do
You were holding that crayola blue, like I'd seen you do before
I finally figured out what you was all about
you used me for my innocence so my friends would come around
Oh Holly I now take my heart from you, we're through, yeah yeah we're done
Track Name: Smells Like Seattle
SMELLS LIKE SEATTLE

I don't wanna sound cliché, and I don't wanna hate
and I don't wanna hear about, the things I shouldnt eat
Cause I don't bitch and I don't preach about things I can't control
I like to live Im glad Im here, I like red meat and wool.

Seattle oh Seattle you're my breathe, my pride and joy
I like to see you in the sum with all the girls and boys
Cause life is beat, no comprimeat (<made that one up, lol)
and life is sugar, tasty sweet
I like to live Im glad Im here, I like red meat and wool.

I'm hungry (He's hungry) I got no food
I'm hungry (He's hungry) I got no food (Job, end of 2nd chorus)


I don't wanna sound cliché, and I don't wanna hate
and I don't wanna hear about, the things I shouldnt eat
Cause I don't bitch and I don't preach about things I can't control
I like to live Im glad Im here, I like red meat and wool.

I'm hungry (He's hungry) I got no food
I'm hungry (He's hungry) I got no job
Track Name: Pot Belly Pete
POT BELLY PETE

Sitting by myself alone again today, thinking about the person that I might have been
Getting lost within the daydreams in my head
Where I am a hero, I am a lover, I am all that I choose to be

Sitting by a silent phone again today, watching heavy snowfall with my labrador
Getting lost within the cobwebs in my head
Where I am a hero, I am a lover, I am all that I choose to be

A move actor, punk musician, fill the gaps in with all that I'm missin'
Porno stud guy, baseball pitcher, Bridget Fonda's the girl that I'm kissin tonight!

Sitting brain dead on the floor again today, laughing to myself in a most peculiar way
Drifting wild into the cobwebs in my head
Where I am a hero, Robert DeNiro, where I am all that I choose to be
Track Name: Lonely Boy
LONELY BOY

I'm left in misery, the girl I love's went across the sea
I'm all alone, I ain't got no home
Maddie was her name, sleeping was her game
She didn't care about me, oh god can't you see

I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy

I need a tender touch, oh I need it oh so much
I can't forget, Oh I'm so upset
I wonder where she's gone and I wonder where we went wrong.
I wanna get her back to me, but I think she's tired of me

I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy

Every time I think of her, it brings back memories
I wanna get her back to me, Oh darling can't you see.
C'mon baby c'mon c'mon back to me

I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy


Oh my darling can't you see, you're the one that means so much to me
You know I miss your tender touch, can't wait to feel your crotch,
Hey what a crotch, can't wait to, fuck it

I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy
I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy, I'm a lonely Boy
Track Name: T.V. and My Baby
TV AND MY BABY


When you have doubts about it, know we can't live without it
Star trek's important but it's not as fun as you
I love the Bundy's and the crazy things the Simpson's do
But deep down inside I know that far and wide, they're not as fun as you

Television and my Baby go together so right
Just like telescopes and children on a starry night
The way that Hawkeye makes me laugh when I feel cold it's so right
It's forever

Just take the man and his game, they become one and the same
Football's important but it's not as fun as you
They love the music and the money made off Michael too,
But deep down inside I know that far and wide, it's not as fun as you

Tabloid T.V. and my Baby go together so right
Just like atom bombs and Nevada on a cold October night
The way old movies make me cry when I'm alone I can't fight
It's forever

You and my remote control, are the best friends that I know
Roseanne's important but it's not fun without you
The Kids in the Hall and Almost Live portray the things I wanna do
But deep down inside I know that far and wide, it's not fun without you

Television and my Baby go together so right
Just like Spiderman and Venom on a darkened winter's night
The way The Scarecrow makes us live the things we fear it's so right
It's forever
(forever is now)
Track Name: Jennifer
JENNIFER

When the morning broke and daylight came, I saw your lipstick on the mirror
and realized just what you'd done to me
The month's we'd spent together through the calm and stormy weather it was,
I guess it has to be a memory

Jennifer where have you gone and are you coming home
Cause I just can't make it on my own

Thinking back it all seemed so great, I'm just trying to compensate for fear
and what this circumstance has done to me
The time we went to Lansing on a trip to take our chances it was
It seemed so easy then I can't explain

Jennifer where have you gone and are you coming home
Cause I just can't make it on my own

We talked about a house we'd name, Haddon Hall just like our friends
The David Bowie's were so good to us
Well I'd share my needle with you, and I'd share my cotton and my spoon
Just to hear you say you love me, one more time

Jennifer where have you gone and are you coming home
Cause I just can't make it, I just can't take it, Jennifer, I just can't make it on my own
Track Name: Because
BECAUSE

Because I woke up late this morning, remote control stuck tight within my hand
Lungs filled with dirt from too much smokin, I guess I do because I can
I don't care too much for breakfast, I dont think I ever will
I crack a beer for measure and be glad the world is still
Population, education, television, mastrubation,
Tell me why you do things you do now

Because money is our master, and our shield a plastic scheme
For the hate that makes us faster, helps us run toward a deadly dream

Say no drugs say yes to gin and tonic, a clean Mercedes is a plus
Now make sure your chidren truly love you, or they'll go bad and lose your trust
I don't care too much for suburbs, I don't think I ever will
I crack a beer for measure and be glad the world is still
Population, education, television, generation,
Tell me why you do things you do now

Because money is our master, and our shield a plastic scheme
For the hate that makes us faster, helps us run toward a deadly dream

Because I woke up late this morning, remote control stuck tight within my hand
Lungs filled with dirt from too much smokin, I guess I do because I can
I don't care too much for problems, I dont think I ever will
I crack a beer for measure and be glad the world is still
Population, education, television, generation,
Tell me why you do things you do now

Because money is our master, and our shield a plastic scheme
For the hate that makes us faster, helps us run toward a deadly dream
Run toward a deadly dream
Track Name: I Like Girls
I LIKE GIRLS
Some guys they like wear skinny ties and look in the mirror
Yeah other guys, they like to think, yeah otherwise, they make believe
But there's only one thing that I like and it's the best thing in the world
you know what I like - I like girls

Some guys like to hit the street with both shoes shining on their feet
While other guys they think it's tough to take too much when you've had enough

But there's only one thing I'm thinking of and it's the thing I really love
You know what I like - I like girls

I like girls for breakfast, and I like girls for tea
I like girls and without exception, they like me

I like girls that go to movies and I like girls that watch TV
I like girls because they're groovy, don;t you agree

Now some guys they travel round' the states making eyes with their affiliates
and other guys they just stay at home, keep their hopes up when they're all alone

There's only place where I belong and I'll be there before long
You know what I like - Like Girls, I like Girls, especially brunettes, I like!
Track Name: High School Blues
HIGH SCHOOL BLUES


The way you punched me was so cool, your skull ring gave me a bad bruise
I sit and think about you every night
Lipstick and matching punk rock shades, fill my eyes with tear and glaze
The tunnel's dark but I can see a light

And god I think about you, every day, I know some girls are beter, better left unchanged
And if I had your love oh Traci yeah it's true, I'd take a shot, I'd die for you

I saw your friends at 12 Oaks Mall, some jocks were following you all
I stood way back and made sure you were safe
We both had Arby's you don't know, yeah I was there I'd never go
We smoked a cigarette at Jim's arcade

And God I long to hold you, everyday, I'd never be so dumb to fall astray
And If I had the time oh Traci yeah it's true. I'd build a castle just for you

So now you've heard my stupid tale, to have you I would go to jail
I'd give my air up just so you can breathe
I hope you've listened to the tune, there's not a thing I wouldn't do
So tell me shall I stay or shall I leave

Cause God I long to hold you, everyday, I know your life would be much better with me
And if I had your love oh Traci yeah it's true
I'd throw my world away for you
Track Name: All I Said (1995)
ALL I SAID

Babe I just wanted you to know, that my love for you is right
Babe don't you never never leave me, cause' if you left me I would die.
Sorry don't come very easy, to a man who never tries
So babe don't ya don't ya go and tease me, give me one chance to make it right

My love for you is so much stronger than before, I'd sell my soul 1000 times or more
Babe don't you run away, we'll grow stronger every day,
Cause' I need you and that's all that I can say, yeah I need you and that's all that I can say
