Whip It
Crack that whip
Give the past a slip
Step on a crack
Break your momma’s back
When a problem comes along
You must whip it
Before the cream sets out too long
You must whip it
When something’s goin’ wrong
You must whip it
Now whip it
Into shape
Shape it up
Get straight
Go forward
Move ahead
Try to detect it
It’s not too late
To whip it
Whip it good
When a good time turns around
You must whip it
You will never live it down
Unless you whip it
No one gets away
Until they whip it
I say whip it
Whip it good
I say whip it
Whip it good
Crack that whip
Give the past a slip
Step on a crack
Break your momma’s back
When a problem comes along
You must whip it
Before the cream sets out too long
You must whip it
When something’s goin’ wrong
You must whip it
Now whip it
Into shape
Shape it up
Get straight
Go forward
Move ahead
Try to detect it
It’s not too late
To whip it
Well, whip it good

Snowball
My baby took our love
And then she rolled it up
Rolled it up a hill
Like a ball of snow
Like a snowball grows
Until it gets too big
Until she lost control
And it rolled back down [Repeat: x3]

She took a tiny bit
And rolled it up again
Slower than before
She went a step too far
She had to let it go
I saw it go straight down
My baby turned around
Started up again [Repeat: x3]

Eyes were made for looking’
Hands were made for holdin’
Hearts were made for lovin’
Lips were made for kissin’
Legs were made for walkin’
Tracks were made to follow
That’s what I’m gonna do

Two tracks
In the snow
Two tracks
Up that hill
My heart broke
When my baby left
Two tracks behind

It’s Not Right
Baby, baby, baby hurt me bad
Baby, baby
Baby, baby made me cry
Baby, I wanna die

Somebody tell me where she’s hiding out
I gotta find that cheatin’ gal
Can’t go, can’t go, can’t go sleep at night
Can’t sleep, can’t sleep, it’s not right
Sunlight, sunlight in my eyes
Sunlight makes me rise

I can’t sleep until my baby says it’s over
I gotta hear it face to face
I love you darlin’ it’s a cryin’ shame
The way you run around like you’re in a big game
I’m so unhappy I could cry every time I think about you
Boo hoo

Baby, baby, baby please come back
Baby, baby
Sunlight sunlight in my eyes
Sunlight makes me rise

I can’t sleep until my baby says it’s over
I gotta hear it face to face
I love you darlin’ it’s a cryin’ shame
The way you run around like you’re in a big game
I shoot around in a trance all day and think about you
All the time

I love you darlin’, it’s a cryin’ shame
The way you run around
Like you’re in a big game
It’s so unfair that you’re so happy
When I’m hurtin’ inside

I love you darlin’, it’s a cryin’ shame
The way you run around
Like you’re in a big game
I’m so unhappy I could cry
Every time I think about you, boo hoo

The Girl You Want
She sings from somewhere you can’t see
She sits in the top of the greenest tree
She sends out an aroma of undefined love
It drips on down in a mist from above

 

She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want
She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want

You hear her calling everywhere you turn
You know you’re headed for the pleasure burn
But the words get stuck on the tip of your tongue
She’s the real thing but you knew it all along

She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want
She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want

Look at you with your mouth watering
Look at you with your mind spinning
Why don’t we just admit it’s all over
She’s just the girl you want

She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want
She’s just the girl, just the girl
The girl you want

She sings from somewhere you can’t see
She sits in the top of the greenest tree
She sends out an aroma of undefined lust
It drips on down in a mist from above

She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want
She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want

Look at you with your mouth watering
Look at you with your mind spinning
Why don’t we just admit it’s all over
She’s just the girl you want

She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want
She’s just the girl, just the girl
The girl you want
She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl
The girl you want
She’s just the girl, she’s just the girl

Planet Earth
I heard a girl in a dress
Say her face was a mess
I heard there’s no reason why
I heard that now’s the time to buy

On planet earth
I’ll probably stay
On planet earth
It’s a place to live your life

Where pleasure follows pain
People go insane
Fly around in planes
Pray that it won’t rain
Drive around in cars
Get drunk in local bars
Dream of being stars
Well I lived all my life on planet earth

I saw a girl lose all control
When she lost her new mink stole
I saw her try to catch a man
Things I couldn’t understand

On planet earth
I’ll probably stay
On planet earth
It’s a place to live your life

Where pleasure follows pain
People go insane
Fly around in planes
Pray that it won’t rain
Drive around in cars
Get drunk in local bars
Dream of being stars
Well I lived all my life on planet earth

I saw a man on a stage
Scream “put me back in my cage”
I saw him hang by his tie
I saw enough to make me cry
On planet earth
On planet earth

I lived all my life on planet earth
I lived all my life on planet earth
On planet earth
[repeat]

Swelling Itching Brain
Got a nervous kind of feeling
Got a painful yellow headache
Every picture in every magazine’s turned real
Every face looks out and screams at me too real

 

Cold sweat on my collar
Dripping to my boots
The waves of nauseous pain
Sets off the pressure pad alarms

Gotta get outta here
Gotta get outta here
Gotta get outta here
Gotta get outta here

Gotta painful swelling brain
Banging in my head
Gotta painful swelling brain
And I called off sick

Gotta swelling itching pain
Got me pulling out my hair
Gotta swelling itching pain
Clutching at my brain

Gotta painful swelling brain
In the back of my head
Gotta painful swelling brain
And I called off sick

Gotta swelling itching pain
Got me pulling out my hair
Gotta swelling itching pain
Clutching at my brain

Gotta painful swelling brain
Got me laying on the floor
Gotta painful swelling brain
Think I left my senses

Gotta swelling itching pain
Seems like endless torture
Gotta swelling itching pain
Banging in my head

Gotta painful swelling brain
In the back of my head
Gotta painful swelling brain
And I called off sick

Gotta painful swelling brain
Got me pulling out my hair
Gotta painful swelling brain
Clutching at my brain

Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Driving me up the wall
Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Dripping out my eyes ears nose and mouth

Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Imploding my thoughts
Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Blasting holes in the front lawn now

Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Clutching at my brain
Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Got me laying on the floor

Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain, looking out at my start
Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain, banging on my thought

Gotta painful swelling brain painful, swelling brain
Painful, swelling brain, looking out at my eyes[Incomprehensible]
Gotta painful swelling brain, painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain, tearing me apart
