Track Name: Debonair
I had a flask and a hand rolled cigarette
My tongue was tied in a nicotine safety net
I still remember everything you said
I hope that you remember just a bit

“You look very nice and how’s your boyfriend?”
Why do I always say such stupid shit?
He likes you some but I like you the best
A secret glance in half a pirouette

I’m only bitter because I really care
And I’m just glad that you were really there

On the bedroom floor we drank local wines
My veins filled with cum, you didn’t bat an eye
We rolled a joint but didn’t have a light
“It’s okay” I smiled, and said goodnight

I walked home and stepped on every crack
I covet love, I know I’ll never have
I’ll never be content because I lack
I’m not afraid of love, just to act

I’m only bitter because I really care
And I’m just glad that you are really here

I’m only bitter because I really care
And I’m just glad that you are really here
Track Name: Karen, Medieval Times Queen
Karen’s love is its own thing
Karen medieval times queen
Karen’s love gave me nothing
Karen medieval times queen

Karen she knows a bad thing
Karen she knows a bad thing
Karen she knows a bad thing

Karen’s hard work in life brings
Karen medieval times queen
Karen reaps all her sowings
Karen, medieval times queen

Karen knows I’m a bad thing
Karen knows I’m a bad thing
Karen knows I’m a bad thing

Karen always stays in shape
Karen gives less then she takes
Karen loves for her own sake
But Karen’s heart's in the right place
Karen’s heart's in the right place
Karen’s heart's in the right place
Karen’s heart's in the right place
Karen’s heart's in the right place

Karen is independent
Karen’s culturally sensitive
Karen maintains her friendships
Karen avoids depression

Karen knows I’m a bad thing
Karen knows I’m a bad thing
Karen knows I’m a bad thing

Karen’s love it means nothing
Karen medieval times queen
Karen medieval times queen
Karen’s love it means nothing
Karen medieval times queen
Karen medieval times queen
Track Name: Holly Hobby
Dear Holly
I apologize
I've been telling lies
And you've gotten wise

Oh Holly
I never meant you harm
It's just romance & charm
With somebody new

And I'm sorry that you fell
Although you should have known just as well that
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby

And poor Holly
You were always true
And I don't blame you
I would hate me too

Say Holly
If you give it time
I'm sure you'll find
Someone who still can be kind

And I'm sorry that you fell
But you should have known just as well that
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby

And I'm sorry that you fell
but you should have known just as well that
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby Holly
You're just a hobby

Holly hobby
Holly hobby
Holly hobby

Track Name: Meghan Will You Be My Valentine?
I want to put your rosy cheeks to mine
Just a couple pomegranates a-wasting time
Meghan would you be my valentine?

I want to do your homework for you
And hang out with you after school
And beat all the mean kids up for you too

You and I could sail the ocean blue
You can eat my legs when we run out of food

I want to let you know just how I feel
Like apple skins, banana peels
Really fast bicycle wheels

I want to put your rosy cheeks to mine
Just a couple polygons a-wasting time
Meghan would you be my valentine?

You and I could sail the ocean blue
You can eat my legs when we run out of food

You and I could sail the seas and back
You can eat my arms when we run out of snacks
Track Name: I Want You To Be My Girl
I want you to be my girl
Yeah I want you to be my girl
I want you to be my girl
Yeah I want you to be my girl

Because when the sun explodes
Well there won't be
Because when the sun explodes
There won't be girls no more

I want you to be my world
Yeah I want you to be my world
I want you to be my world
Yeah I want you to be my world

But when the sun explodes
Well there won’t be
Because when the sun explodes
There won’t be
Because when the sun explodes
There won’t be a world no more

I want you to love me for
I want you to love me for
A little bit of time
And not one second more

Because when the sun explodes
Well you won’t need
To tear my heart out cold
I promise it’ll be
Easier to hold,
until the sun explodes

Explodes
It’ll explode
Explode
It’ll explode
Explode
And you won't need to go
Because it'll explode
