Hootenanny
 

(Hootenanny in E)

  Well, it's a hootenanny
It's a hootenanny
It's a hootenanny
It's a hoooootenanny
Bought a Caddy
It's a hootenanny

Hootenanny
Hootenanny
Hootenanny, woo
Hootenanny
It's a hoot
It's a hoot

Chris, Chris Mars

Well hootenanny
It’s just a hootenanny
Like a hooten-laughs
Like a hootenanny
Hootenanny, all night long

Run It
 

Red light, red light, run it
Red light, red light, run it

Lyndale
Garfield
Back up now 'cept
engine stopped runnin'

There ain't nobody watchin', run it
There ain't nobody watchin', run it

Lyndale

Back up now 'cept
engine stopped runnin'

(Screaming)

Ain't no truth, run it
Ain't no good, run it

Lyndale
Garfield
Back up now 'cept
engine stopped runnin'

Run it
Run, run, run, it

Color Me Impressed
 

Everybody at your party
They all look depressed
Everybody dressin' funny
Color me impressed

Stayin' out late tonight
Won't be gettin' any sleep
Givin' out their word
Cuz that's all that they won't keep

Put the monkey on the mirror
Wontcha pass the bill to Chris?
Intoxicated every minute I French kiss

Can you stand me on my feet?

Can you stand me on my feet?

(Everybody)**repeat**

Everybody at your party

They don't look depressed
And everybody's dressin' funny
Color me impressed

Color me impressed (4x)
A color ya

(More spooky screaming)

Willpower changed my mind
Willpower changed my mind

Stop it

Just in time

Willpower changed your mind (my life)
Minutes seems like hours
Take yours (take yours) don't take mine

Stop it

Here it comes

Stop it

Stop it
<drink and drive?>

Willpower changed my mind
Willpower

Stop it
Anytime

Stop it

Just in time

I don't wanna stop it **repeat to fade**

Take Me Down To The Hospital
 

Well I can't breathe
I can't swallow
Here today
Gonna be back tomorrow

Lyin' in back
With your heart attack
In the front seat
With Pete Pete Pete

Red light <running?>
Drag me in
Move the seat back
It's Saturday night

Take me down, hospital
Take me down, hospital

Wrap me up
Throw me out
Jockey the phones
Fill out these forms

Take off your shirt
Where does it hurt?
Get outta them slacks
Outta them slacks, cut the belt

Take me to, hospital
Take me to, hospital
Take me down, hospital
Take me down, hospital

Oh, oww, oww, no-ho-ho

I don't wanna
Ride no car
Makin' love
In my own backyard

Take me to, hospital
Take me to, hospital
Take me to, hospital
Take me down, hospital
Oh, hospital
Hospital (3X)
Yeah

  I don't wanna
Die before my time
Already used
8 of my lives (3x)

Take me down, hospital (8X)
Bubby

Within Your Reach
 

I could live without so much
I can die without a clue
Sun keeps risin' in the west
I keep on wakin' fully <confused?>

I never seen no mountain
Never swam no sea
City got me drownin'
I guess it's up to me

I can live without your touch
I can live without your touch

Go <Grow?> without so much
Can die without a dream
Live without your touch
I'll die within your reach

Reach
Reach, yeah

I never seen no mountain
Never swam no sea
Drownin' in this city
Well, it's really up to me

I can live without your touch
I can live without your touch
I can live without your touch
Die within, your reach
Die within, your reach
Die with, in your reach
Die with, in your reach

Reach
Die within your
Reach
Die within your
Reach

Reach ... for the sky

Lovelines
 

(Laughs)

Oh stop it

  (snorts a lie or two)

Slightly overweight girls need sex also
Send your note and desires
Means of contact P.O. Box 8941

Baby you have been along
I'll read another
As soon as it comes around

Feeling pressure?
Call Lovelines

JD if you need a fishing partner
Please let me know
Visitors welcome instruction
5 generation mess you give for naught

Hey Ellen
Mark says hi
Tom what else can I say
I love you very much
I'm glad we're together
Miss you a lot
Love kitten

Ooh yeah ooh yeah Kitten
Ooh yeah ooh yeah
Lurkin' lizards lyin' in the tanners
Under an oral fix
Waiting for the return of the crawling Kingsnake
John Lee

(Another sniff)

Okay
Grin & bear it

Fantasy Phone Swingers' Hotline
Pure silk, pure seduction
G-strings in petal pink
Hell

(Sniff)

Attract some women
Scientific formulated
Spray the conductive male hormone
Work, turn the lights off

Ooh baby, let's turn a page

Person-to-person
And it's all a bunch of shit

  Sittin' at home, I'm so excited
Goin' to the party tho' we weren't invited

Times ain't tough, They’re tedious

Geniuses act like idiotses

Treatment Bound
 

We're gettin' no place fast as we can
Get a noseful from our so-called friends
We're gettin' nowhere quick as we know how
We whirl from town to town treatment bound

First thing we do when we finally pull up
Get shitfaced drunk tryin’ to sober up

There'll be no pose tonight no money in sight
Label wants a hit and we don't give a shit

Cuz where gettin' no place as fast as we can
We get a noseful from our so-called friends

We're gettin' nowhere quick as we know how
We whirl from town to town Duluth to Madison
Treatment bound

Gettin' nowhere

(Keep goin')
<Mumble?>

Second thing we do is walk around
Go to the job or try to hold one down

There's no mass appeal caught <carton's?> asleep at the wheel
Yesterday's trash too bored to thrash

We're gettin' nowhere fast as we can
We got a noseful of them so-called friends
We're gettin no place, quick as we know how
We're gettin' nowhere what will we do now?

Take it, Scotty

Tommy: “What are the chords at that one part you just fucked it up?”
Paul: “Fucked 'em up.”
