Track Name: The New New Real Real Folk Blues
Read it on the internet, chipmusic is dead.
Gonna pack my bags and move to New York City.

Read it in Wired Magazine, there's a whole new kind of scene.
I know it must be true - they interviewed someone famous.

Maybe I'll move to LA, do the kind of music that pays.
I heard they need some square waves for a car commercial.

Heard they made a clothing line. I guess it's probably about time.
The scene is really primed for some corporate apparel.

Hey, you don't know my name. I don't have any kind of fame,
but I will do a free song for your compilation.

Buddy, give me LSDJ. I can put it for auction on Ebay.
Imagine what I could do with one hundered dollars.
Track Name: Trevor
Some kids think it's funny when you don't have a dad.
Some grown-ups don't like it when a kid gets mad.
Some kids get detention when they pull a girl's hair
Grown-ups don't ask why, and grown-ups they don't care.

I don't want you playing with Trevor.
I don't want you playing with Trevor, ever.
I don't want you playing with Trevor.
I don't want you playing with Trevor, ever ever.

They always said that you were a bad kid.
They always said that you were no good.
They always said that you were a bad kid.
A bad kid from a bad neighborhood.

They always said that you were a bad kid.
They always said that you were no good.
They always said that you were a bad kid.
A bad kid from a bad neighborhood.

Some best friends don't like it when you act too strange.
Some best friends go away when you make mistakes.
Some girls don't like it when they see me cry.
Some girls don't like to see the way they make me feel inside.

I'll never forget, and I'll never forgive.
Never forget, and never forgive.
I'll never forget, and I'll never forgive.
Never forget, and never forgive.
Never forget, and never forgive.
Never forget, and never forgive.
Track Name: It Doesn't Matter At All
All my dreams were shattered and
my poor heart was shattered too.
When you left without a warning,
you left me without a clue.

All my time has been wasted,
thinking my days of love were done.
Now we've met, I must be dreaming.
I think that she's the one.

I never thought I'd fall in love again.
Especially with your best friend.
But then again, I didn't know she was a lesbian,
so I guess it doesn't matter at all.
I guess it doesn't matter at

All my life, I've been looking for
someone who's just like here.
Now we've met, and I'm left wishing that
she liked boys instead of girls.

I never thought I'd fall in love again.
Especially with your best friend.
But then again, I didn't know she was a lesbian,
so I guess it doesn't matter at all.
I guess it doesn't matter at

All these days and noone's warned her.
She's in love and just can't see.
How could life be so cruel.
She wants you instead of me.

I never thought I'd fall in love again.
Especially with your best friend.
But then again, I didn't know she was a lesbian,
so I guess it doesn't matter at all.
I guess it doesn't matter at all.

I never thought I'd fall in love again.
Especially with your best friend.
But then again, I didn't know she was a lesbian,
so I guess it doesn't matter at all.
I guess it doesn't matter at all.
Track Name: Feed Them Once
Once you feed those cats you better believe.
Once you feed those cats they never leave.
Once you feed those cats you better believe.
Once you feed those cats they never leave.

Now I got some cats scratching on my back door.
Now I got some cats and they always want more.
Now I got some cats coming by all the time.
Now I got some cats and they think that they're mine.

Feed them once, feed them forever.

Now I got some cats crapping on my lawn.
Now I got some cats and I wish they were gone.
Now I got some cats always staring at me.
Now I got some cats and they won't let me be.

Feed them once, feed them forever.

Once you feed those cats you better believe.
Once you feed those cats they never leave.
Once you feed those cats they never leave.
Once you feed those cats they never leave.
Track Name: Pimpollo
Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo

Te dicen siempre al pasar
piropos de admiracion.
Pues llevas en el andar
la gracia del cha cha cha.

Por eso te gritan, niña, linda, reina del cha cha cha.

Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo

Te dice tu corazon
brincando con emocion
que pronto has de encontrar
al hombre que tu has de amar

y mientras te grita, niña, linda, reina del cha cha cha.

Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim
Pollo pimpollo pim pim pim

Track Name: Crush
Never knew that I could feel this way.
I was just a kid in second grade.
Tonka trucks at recess aren't the same.
I sit out by the tree and carve your name.

It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be.

Always did my homework every day,
But in fron of you I never knew what to day.
Teacher, teacher, am I such a fool
to sit in class and fall in love with you.

It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be.

Catholic school was sometimes not so great,
knowing that we'd never consummate.
Mother Mary you are so severe.
I flunked your class and took it one more year.
(You know I love you Mother Mary)

It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be so dangerous.
It's a crush. It's a crush. It shouldn't have to be.
Track Name: Dethroned
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
just let it go, 'cause you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
I won't atone, 'cause you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
you cry and moan, but you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
you'll never clone me, you don't even know me.

I can't say what you want me to say.
I can't say what you want me to say.
I won't pay what you want me to pay.
I won't pay what you want me to pay.

You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
just let it go, 'cause you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
I won't atone, 'cause you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
you cry and moan, but you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
you'll never clone me, you don't even know me.

I can't see what you want me to see.
I can't see what you want me to see.
I won't be what you want me to be.
I won't be what you want me to be.

You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
just let it go, 'cause you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
I won't atone, 'cause you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
you cry and moan, but you don't even know me.
You don't own me, you can't dethrone me,
you'll never clone me, you don't even know me.
Track Name: Clifton Clowers
The bears, they talk to me,
and the things they tell me come to be.
And the bears told me today
that you're coming to take my little girl away.

And all the bees in all the flowers know the name of Clifton Clowers
and the creatures of the mountain talk to me.
And I'm handy with a knife and a gun
so if I see you coming you better run.

The birds up in the trees,
they whisper to me in the breeze.
And the birds up in the sky
said you're coming to take her from side.

And all the bees in all the flowers know the name of Clifton Clowers
and the creatures of the mountain talk to me.
And I'm handy with a knife and a gun
so if I see you coming you better run.

The gophers under the ground,
they hear your footsteps coming around.
And the gophers, they all say
that you're coming to take my little girl away.

And all the bees in all the flowers know the name of Clifton Clowers
and the creatures of the mountain talk to me.
And I'm handy with a gun and a knife
And if I see you coming I'll take your life.
Track Name: Big Black Anchor
Big black anchor, pulling at me.
Our captain's a rummy and he's lost us at see.
Got a pig and a rooster tattooed on my feet,
but it's pulling me down, pulling me down, pulling me down.

Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down.

You lost the map and you can't find the shore.
You beg for advice but it's been always ignored,
so I just hold my tounge and I give up my sword,
'cause it's pulling me down, pulling me down, pulling me down.

Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down.

You squandered our treasure on whiskey and beer.
You confess all your troubles but you don't want to hear
the sails full of holes and the wind's disappeared.
and it's dragging me down, dragging me down, dragging me down.

Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down.

I never asked to me buried at see
but I'm starving to death as we drift aimlessly.
All rats jump the ship eventually
and they're dragging me down, dragging me down, dragging me down.

Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down.
Track Name: I'm Old Fashioned
I'm old fashioned.
I love the moonlight.
I love the old fashioned things.

The sound of rain
upon a window pane,
the starry song that April sings

This year's fancies
are passing fancies,
but sighing sighs, holding hands,
these my heart understands

I'm old fashioned
but I, I don't mind it.
That's how I want to be,
as long as you'll agree,
to stay old fashioned with me.
