Track Name: Hank Green - Bangs
Bangs
Above your eyes your hair hangs
Blow my mind your royal flyness I dig your bangs

Bangs
To drape across your forehead
To swing concordant angles as you incline your head

Once with a girl I fell in love sometime ago now she had...

Bangs
Are that on which the world hangs
I'm only holding your hand so I can look at your bangs

Bangs
Are like a pocket T-shirt
As casual as that while fully intentional

And in case you think I'm here cause I like making chit chat
Just remember what I said the money's under your hat

Bangs
Are that on which the world hangs
I'm only holding your hand so I can look at your bangs

Bangs
Above your eyes your hair hangs
Blow my mind your royal flyness I dig your bangs

Bangs
To drape across your forehead
To swing concordant angles as you incline your head

And although I like you anyway, check out your haircut
A proscenium to stage a face that needs no makeup

Can you murder with your style believe it when you've heard it
When the jury and the judge return to read the verdict

Bangs
Are that on which the world hangs
I'm only holding your hand so I can look at your bangs
I'm only holding your hand so I can look at your bangs
Track Name: Driftless Pony Club - Cyclops Rock
I taught you how to cyclops rock
And then you go and turn around and break my heart
And then you go and waste my cyclops time
Mess up my cyclops mind

I'm sick
Like Chucky was sick
My defeated heart keeps beating on
I won't die
Like Chucky won't die
But I'm not here to socialize
Gotta find a new place to hang out
'Cause I'm tired of living in Hell

I'm a mess
Since you cut me out
But Chucky's arm keeps me company
I'm a fright
With my tombstone smile
All the children run away from me
Gotta find new friends to hang with
'Cause you're all afraid of me

And I taught you how to cyclops rock
And then you go and turn around and break my heart
And then you go and waste my cyclops time
Mess up my cyclops mind

It was sweet
Like lead paint is sweet
But the after-effect left me paralyzed
I just stare
With my one glass eye
Hoping you won't be back again
There's a whole new generation
Waiting to be wrecked by you

I taught you how to cyclops rock
And then you go and turn around and break my heart
You waste my cyclops time
And mess up my cyclops mind

Pony, Twist, Monkey, and Froog
These are the things that I taught to you
Hitchhike, Boogie, Hypocrite Bop
I'm stuck in a van outside of New York
AAAAAAAAAHHH!

Taught you how to cyclops rock
And then you go and turn around and break my heart
You waste my cyclops time
And I've got a cyclops mind
Track Name: Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire - Man, It's So Loud In Here
Man, it's so loud in here

They fixed up the corner store
Like it was a nightclub
It's permanently disco

Everyone is dressed so oddly
I can't recognize them
I can't tell the staff from the customers

Baby, check this out
I've got something to say
Man, it's so loud in here
When they stop the drum machine
And I can think again
I'll remember what it was

You have to carry all your things
You can't misplace them
There's nowhere to place anything

Baby, check this out
I've got something to say
Man, it's so loud in here
When they stop the drum machine
And I can think again
I'll remember what it was

They're all shouting something at us
Waving and pointing

They revamped the airport completely
Now it looks just like a nightclub
Everyone's excited and confused

Baby, check this out
I've got something to say
Man, it's so loud in here
When they start the love machine
And I can love again
I'll remember what it was

Baby, check this out
I've got something to say
Man, it's so loud in here
(Man, it's so loud in here)
Man, it's so loud in here
(Man, it's so loud in here)
Man, it's so loud in here
(Man, it's so loud in here)
Man, it's so loud in here
(Man, it's so loud in here)

(Man, it's so loud in here)

(Man, it's so loud in here)

(Man, it's so loud in here)
Track Name: Devo Spice - Mr. Xcitement
Let it be known. Devo Spice. TV's Kyle. Mr. Xcitement!

Cafè con pan (x11)

Rock on, my hubba
The beat is blubba
Being stingy on the pike
Collect the one into the otha

Protrude into the hoobalicious (cafè con pan)
Scoff the extra aden (cafè con pan)

I write the mooky (cafè con pan cafè con pan)
My verse is extra spooky (cafè con pan)
Like Flansy in a soda can (cafè con pan)
It's trooky-trooky-trooky (cafè con pan cafè con pan)

Awwwwwwww (Awwwwwww) YES (yes yes yes yes yes yes yes...)

Track Name: MC Frontalot - Another First Kiss
I'm asleep, but she's talking to me
She's walking 'round wearing all of my clothes
As she runs out of things to say
And grabs my coat to walk away

"How 'bout another first kiss?" she said
"How 'bout another first kiss?" I said
I want another first kiss like this
How 'bout another first kiss?

Other people were too sentimental
And always worrying about their hair
Got tired of wasting all my time
Now I'm not worrying at all

"How 'bout another first kiss?" she said
"How 'bout another first kiss?" I said
I want another first kiss like this
How 'bout another first kiss?

You could tell me we belong together
And I could tell you you belong with me
But we've run out of things to say
And we'll be happy anyway so

"How 'bout another first kiss?" she said
"How 'bout another first kiss?" I said
I want another first kiss like this
How 'bout another first kiss?

"How 'bout another first kiss?" she said
"How 'bout another first kiss?" I said
I want another first kiss like this
How 'bout another first kiss?
Track Name: Tom Milsom - I've Got A Fang
Glistening white triangular tooth
Open up a can of tomato juice

I've got a fang
I've got a fang
I've got a fang

Girlfriend took me to meet her dad
Didn't like me because I look so bad

I've got a fang
I've got a fang
I've got a fang

Girlfriend took me to meet her mom
Her head exploded like a atom bomb

I've got a fang
I've got a fang
I've got a fang

I've got a fang
I've got a fang
I've got a fang

Glistening white triangular tooth
Open up a can of tomato juice

I've got a fang
I've got a fang

I've got a fang
I've got a fang
I've got a fang
Track Name: Marian Call - Hovering Sombrero
Hey, hovering sombrero
Gently waving in the air above the meadow
Softly floating in the sky outside the window
Hovering sombrero, don't be shy
Don't
Don't be shy
Don't be terrified (don't)
When you take yourself for granted (don't)
Feel rejected and unwanted, know
You're never just a hat (no)
You're never only just a hat, you know (no)

Hovering sombrero
Hovering sombrero

Time is flying like an arrow
And the clock hands go so fast, they make the wind blow
And it makes the pages of the calendar go
Flying out the window, one by one
'Til the 100 years are on the front lawn (no)
And the old, familiar things are mostly all gone
But the old sombrero just keeps hovering on (no)
Hovering sombrero, hover on

Don't be burdened by regrets or make (no)
Your failures an obsession
Or become embittered or possessed by ruined hopes (no no)
Remember, when you take yourself for granted (no)
Feel rejected and unwanted, know (no)
You're never just a hat (no)
You're never only just a hat, you know (no)

Hovering sombrero
Hovering sombrero
Track Name: Beefy and Mustin - Yeh Yeh
Now every evening, when all my day's work is through
I call my baby, and ask her what we could do
I mention movies, she doesn't seem to dig that
And then she asks me, Why don't I come to her flat
And have some dinner, and let the evening pass by
By playing records, the sounds of groovy hi-fi?

I say "yeh yeh"
That's what I say
I say "yeh yeh"

My baby loves me, she gets me feelin' so fine
And when she loves me, she makes me know that she's mine
And when she kisses, I feel the fire get hot
She never misses, she gives it all that she's got
And when she asks me if everything is okay
I give the answer, the only thing I can say

I say "yeh yeh"
That's what I say
I say "yeh yeh"

We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low
So that none can see
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
And there'll be no one else alive in all the world 'cept you and me

Yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh
Yeh yeh yeh yeh

And pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill (whoa)
It's hard to tell you, because I'm tremblin' still (whoa)
No need to ask me if everything is okay (whoa)
I got my answer, the only thing I can say (whoa)

I say "yeh yeh"
That's what I say
I say "yeh yeh"

We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low so that none can see
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
And there'll be no one else alive in all the world 'cept you and me

Yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh
Yeh yeh yeh yeh

And pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill
It's hard to tell you, because I'm tremblin' still
But pretty baby, I want you all for my own
I think I'm ready to leave those others alone
No need to ask me if everything is okay
I got my answer, the only thing I can say

I say "yeh yeh"
That's what I say
I say "yeh yeh"
That's what I say
I say "yeh yeh"
That's what I say
I say "yeh yeh"
Track Name: brentalfloss - Drink
I'll take back my pinata, it's wasted on you
Just spinning that pool cue all over the room
And give back the blindfold that's under your shoe

Let's drink, drink, this town is so great
Drink, drink, 'cause it's never too late
To drink, drink, to no big surprise
But what words rhyme with "buried alive"?
What words rhyme with "buried alive"?

You could be a float for the Fourth of July
Based on your theme of "Wallflowers Grown Wild"
Look through your peephole, you've won every prize

Let's drink, drink, this town is so great
Drink, drink, 'cause it's never too late
To drink, drink, to no big surprise
But what words rhyme with "buried alive"?
What words rhyme with "buried alive"?

In your monkey suit on a cigarette break
The lunchtime crowd, they won't even blink
But you'd be sad if they did
But you'll be sad

Let's drink, drink, this town is so great
Drink, drink, 'cause it's never too late
To drink, drink, to no big surprise
But what words rhyme with "buried alive"?
What words rhyme with "buried alive"?
Track Name: Mike Lombardo - My Man
My man
Muscles from hand to foot
Completely coated in uninterrupted skin
My man
Signals command
The leg to follow orders coming down from headquarters

Why then
Am I in bed?
I guess my man's fallen out with my head

May I direct your attention to the following simile?
You're like the coasts of an ocean
Buried beneath is a submarine cable
Connecting the opposite shores that surround it

My man
How can he stand?
Your fingers could encircle clear around the ankle

My man
Won't walk again
In conflict with express instructions given by the brain

Why can't
The message be sent?
I guess my man's fallen out with my head

When something happens to drag on the floor of the ocean
For instance, an anchor or mooring
The cable can be disrupted, and even be severed
Which halts the transmission across it

There is no way to repair the break.

My man
Muscles from hand to foot
Completely coated in uninterrupted skin

My man
Signals command
The leg to follow orders coming down from headquarters

My man
How can he stand?

My man
Muscles from hand to foot
Completely coated in uninterrupted skin (my man)
My man won't walk again
Track Name: Nuclear Bubble Wrap - Older
You're older than you've ever been and now you're even older
And now you're even older
And now you're even older
You're older than you've ever been and now you're even older
And now you're older still

Time
Is marching on
And time
Is still marching on

This day will soon be at an end and now it's even sooner
And now it's even sooner
And now it's even sooner
This day will soon be at an end and now it's even sooner
And now it's sooner still

You're older than you've ever been and now you're even older
And now you're even older
And now you're even older
You're older than you've ever been and now you're even older
And now you're older still
Track Name: The Doubleclicks - Wicked Little Critta
The pro is here to lead the way
To save the day

Wicked little critta!

He clips the puck from Bobby Orr
He shoots. He scores.

Wicked little critta!

As he proceeds to torch the place
As he proceeds to scorch the place
As he proceeds to torch the place
Scorcher!
Torture!
Scorcher!

Wicked little critta!

He's a wicked little critta with a sissy bar
And he lays a patch on the tar
He's a wicked little critta with a sissy bar
And he lays a patch on the tar

And he pops a wheelie on his mini-bike
And he burns rubber and he peels out
He's a wicked little critta with a sissy bar
And he lays a patch on the tar

And he clips the ball from Havlicek
And Havlicek is used and abused
He's a wicked little critta with a sissy bar
And he lays a patch on the tar

He decides to ditch and he ditches
And nobody knows where he ditched
He's a wicked little critta with a sissy bar
And he lays a patch on the tar

It's a wicked little guy
Wicked pissa little guy
Wicked scorcher little critta
He's a wicked little guy

Wicked little critta!

He's a dink
Way to go
I like him
I got problems
Track Name: Jonathan Mann - Finished With Lies
Now I'm telling the truth
I'm finished with lies
Lies
If you don't believe me now
You'll never believe me now
I should have my head examined
They'll see when they look inside
I won't have to say a word

I'll stop thinking what I shouldn't be thinking
I'll make everyone believe me

Can't you see I'm telling the truth?
I'm finished with lies
Lies
If you don't believe me now
You'll never believe me now

You'll think it's a lie

Couldn't we just put away the ancient history?
Throw up our hands at the unsolved mystery

I'm going to have my head examined
I'll prove you were wrong about me
Move the needle telepathically

I'll turn everything around and confuse you
I'll talk faster and faster 'til I lose you
I'll fix it so you can't remember what was true
And there'll be nothing to remind you

Starting now
Track Name: R_Garcia - She Thinks She's Edith Head
Back in high school I knew a girl
Not too simple and not too kind
We both grew up but I heard she changed
From a new wave fan to another kind

She thinks she's Edith Head
But you might know she's not
The accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up

She thinks she's Edith Head
Or Helen Gurley Brown
Or some other cultural figure
We don't know a lot about

It's been years since I moved away
But at Christmas I come home
And I saw her reflection
In the window of a store

She was talking to herself
Not too simple and not too kind
I walked on by, it was complicated
And it stuck in my mind

She thinks she's Edith Head
But you might know she's not
The accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up

The accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up
The accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up

She thinks she's Edith Head
She thinks she's Edith Head now
She thinks she's Edith Head
She thinks she's Edith Head now
Track Name: Hello, The Future! - Working Undercover For The Man
I've been working hard
Trying to sing and play guitar
Growing out my hair
And working on my stare

Paid to fake it
In a traveling band
And I'm working undercover for the man

La la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la

Planning midnight raids
On our unsuspecting fans
While the roadies rig
The video surveillance van

Paid to fake it
In a traveling band
And I'm working undercover for the man

La la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la

I've been working hard
Practicing to sing and play guitar
Growing out my hair
And working on my stare

Paid to fake it
In a traveling band
And I'm working undercover for the man

La la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la
