Lyrics:

Go Bulls

Chlamydia

Glenda

The Girl That Didn't Want to Think

The Better Bobby

Possessive

Taffy

Relapse

Outdated Weekend

My favorite Girl

 

 

 

 

Go Bulls

Susan A.

Went away

 And when she came back my teeth hurt

 

Maybe if I didnít act that way.

 

At her birthday,

she was somewhere less than eight.

 

Kissiní Katie behind the easy chair (kindergarten)

 

In first grade, still less than eight.

 

Derision caused me to Deny.

A couple of years went by.

It was long ago.

 

What would be the point anyway

I canít start from scratch

 

Back to Calendar Girl in the second grade.

When I saw you my heart stopped.

 

It took me two or three years to get to you

And when I did it was a failure

 

I saw it right away, in the second grad

No one else saw it till High School

 

In the Fourth or Fifth Grade

Shortly after turning eight

You asked me to spell your name

 

But by the sixth grade it was too late

There was a new girl in town

 

She had short curly hair.

It was orange or red

She wasnít you but she wasnít bad.

 

My vain attempt of course was no attempt at all

I was too scarred from the handwriting sample

 

Not too strong and in the mean time there were brunettes all about me

I swear I was just dumb, didnít realize the game

And besides I saw a new redhead.

 

Later on when we were driving cars

As you were getting down at the red light

Just like your hair it was spinning Ďround

In the safety of your car in the middle of town

 

Just like Nikki and Melissa C.

The girls who came to me to ask if I was  . . .

But for you I was, but for no one else that you would be asking for

But thatís the game when youíre in 6th or 10th grade

And the thing never ever works out

It seems likes it only when no messenger is sent that itís really meant to happen.

 

But you got too shy and so did I, and didnít know how to get to Ö.

Even though you were almost as strange and you talked to me more than any other . . .

Always too shy with low self-esteem, I thought I was worthless.

It only started to end with the final redhead.

She hugged me every-single-day.

 

I denied Katie, lied about Valerie, never went for Margarite, where are they now?

Just like A.K and the girl who looked my way.

I looked away and now sheís married.

Every K.T gettiní married.

 

back   

 

Chlamydia

Like life youíre a necessary curse

Thereís no reason why this should work

I do everything in your name and you twinkle your eyelashes at me.

Et all It all had to happen to me

Youíve given me everything.

 

Chlamydia.

 

Take this powder and youíll feel much better.

 

Iím almost a man

Iím a good gullible

My heart is like lead

My hands are trembling

How are you feeling?

 

(Chorus)

 

It always strikes on impact like Shakespeareís kill

There could never be lies

The victim always dies

You did this to me and almost didnít admit it.

 

(Chorus)

 

Iíll take one for the team

Iíve got low self-esteem

 

  back

 

Glenda

Not here. Incompetence swilling. As is. Knowing what weíre worth, while weíre not worth it. Verbal Bludgeon just to get one grain.

 

Glenda?

 

You and me

sitting on a park bench.

Weíll be one.

 

Glenda?

 

Not here. Occupied boredom. Resident Opponents. Dead Rat Stench. Stopping and Starting. If I have to spend another minute hereÖ

 

Glenda.

 

You and me

Sitting on a park bench

Weíll be one

Weíll play a card game

Holding hands

Walking in the park

Together everyday

Brushing our teeth

Sharing a bed

Watchiní the TV

Making dinner for you when you get home.

 

Glenda?

The Girl That Didnít Want to Think

 

The girl that didn't want to think yeah

idle hands are the devil's best friend

not emptiness but distracted at least

time alone's no good

the girl who didn't want to think

 

the girl who didn't want to think yeah

I can take your mind off for a while

You won't even find the time to ponder

You'll rely on instinct

the girl who didn't want to think

 

the girl who didn't want to think yeah

time alone won't be a problem anymore

I'll hire some goons to take care of you

so be a good girl

the girl who didn't want to think

 

the girl who didn't want to think  yeah

you can't think much when youíre screaming

I'll keep your mind off all the good things

just you and me

the girl who didn't want to think

 

the girl who didn't want to think

when you pass out you're only dreaming

when you're worn out I'll make it quick

Your time is short

the girl who didn't want to think

 

the girl who didn't want to think

You're sore, you're tired and you want to go home

just one more time and then I'll let you go

I promise.

The Better Bobby

 

Everybody love you baby

Everyone wants to see you naked

Beatrice, Picasso

Everyoneís an asshole

You all got to see this lady

 

Should never be afraid of everyone

Never be scared of anyplace

Out of the depths of what you think is bad, comes out the greatest chance you never had.

Pursed lips

Lean back

Big smile

Make you laugh

Learn to love

Next in line

Say it feels good

But you had to laugh

 

Weíre all interested in you baby

Theyí all want a piece of you lady

One more time to declare you fine

Everyoneís attracted to you baby

 

Should never be frightened of anyone

Canít look kindly on being scared of the chase

New Eldorado Baby

Your never gonna want to party again.

 

Long legs

Modern jazz

You can love this cripple if you want

How can I emote?

What does it mean?

Maybe inevitable

You can love me

Get it over with or stretch it out

My imagination has go the clout

My history backs whimsy up

Cinematic moments all lined up

Iím on a streak

Donít mess it up

Love donít really add up to much

Pursed lips

Big smile

Make you laugh

For a little while

I wonít acquiesce

Iím taking you to task

Donít feel the same way

But you gotta laugh

 

Itís all just a game

Weíre all playiní games

Weíre all in the game

To build a better Bobby

To be a better Bobby.

 

  back

Possessive

 

Donít want no one to touch your skin

Donít want  no one to come in

Donít want this Costello sin

Maybe it wonít last

 

Donít want no one to touch your skin

Donít want no on to come in

This is my Costello sin

Maybe just half

 

(repeat)

 

Every time no fail and itís a shame

My and everyoneís tastes the same

Tis my imagination so dam lame

Will it ever stop

 

Chance of torture or to fulfill

Cold-blooded plan Ė cold blood spill

Keep it alive or should it be killed

I canít stop

 

Give you shelter to lay your head

Maybe just to lay in your bed

Just enough for me not to wish I was dead

You keep me alive

 

Calculated risk roll the dice

Will you be yourself or will you be nice

Just this new experience would suffice

Is that so wrong

 

Iíve never strayed

Iíve never died

Inept Collusion

Skins Collide

 

 

Iíve never taken

Such a chance

Slimy risks

Of new romance

 

Donít want no one to touch your skin

Donít want no on to come in

This is my Costello sin

Maybe just half

 

Donít want no one to touch your skin

Donít want  no one to come in

Donít want this Costello sin

Maybe it wonít last.

Taffy

 

Anxious when I unwrap the package

Soak in the vision, Miracle Candy

Savor the Flavor, start in slowly

Tiny tastes, Saltwater Taffy

Investigate further, sweet and salty

Delectable torture, Delicious candy

 

Taffy

 

Sweet Pain tastes sweet and musty

Keep my delight under control, Iím suckin' on Taffy

In my dreams Iím eating taffy

Tasting firm but soft and sticky

Every Flavor all so tasty

Tasting Taffy sticky sweet

 

Taffy

 

Life is good when I smell taffy

Smile on my face, curdling tummy

Dark and beautiful perfect candy

Touch and taste only when Iím dreaminí

Everybody here wants some taffy

rare and probably pricey

No matter what your  favorite candy

When she shows up, you love Taffy

My favorite shape of luscious taffy

Stand straight up and jut where taffy gets curvy

Plan a surprise, Show Taffy

If her mouth opens that wide its gotta be good.

 

Taffy

 

Laughy Taffy,  get over me

Iím not like you, I ainít candy

 

Donít rub it in, I wish I could be

But it donít mean you donít have to eat me.

 

Connivin' girl donít , understand me

Iíve just gotta be under taffy

 

I guess I can take this, French Marie

Just to get Taffy, under me.

 

Laughy Taffy, get into me

I gotta get some, reciprocity

 

If you gotta rub it in, I canít stop thee

Spread Sticky Taffy all over me

 

Taffy

My Favorite Girl

 

Love is sweet when itís not of this world

When I get to meet a cinematic girl Ė sheís so

Beautiful I think Iím gonna hurl Ė and I know

She aint gonna pay attention to me Ė but she does

And Iím so ecstatic-able Ėas long as

This girl keeps on talking to meĖ   I know

Life is sweet when Iím not in the world Ė thatís because

My world is her, everything else is a blur Ė but I donít

Think she actually wants me

 

She might be my favorite girl

Its too bad she donít want me

She might be the most wonderful girl

Oh well she donít want me

Sheís gotta be my favorite girl

Oh, she makes me so happy

 

I wanna die

So happy

 

She may be my favorite girl

So fine but  she donít want me

She may be the most beautiful girl

She makes me so happy

Sheís gotta be my favorite girl

Yeah, she makes me so happy

 

I wanna die

So happy

 

I wanna die

She makes me so happy 

 

I wanna die but I canít cause I donít have a knife

I stay awake each and every single night

I wanna die but I donít have a noose

You know Iím working hard, baby Iím worth a deuce

I wanna die but I donít have a rope

I donít have any means to cope

I wanna die but I donít got no pills

I wanna get dead Ė who do I have to kill

I wanna die but I donít have a gun

Iím just not satisfied Ė no fun

I donít wanna go to the beach
