Track Name: BURGERS
Everybody knows our burgers crushed Shoeless Joe's
Everybody knows there's a pasture in the courtyard where the money flows
Everybody knows that Michael Moore tried to pass this off as a Canadian ghetto
Track Name: TEENAGE DREAM
Yeah, You
You're my teenage dream
This is a song I heard in a dream
This is a song I wrote in my sleep

Went to a party late last night
Met a man named Stever
Under the streetlight
He was strong and bald and tall
He was the king of them all
He was my teenage dream

Yeah, You
You're my teenage dream
This is a song I heard in a dream
This is a song I wrote in my sleep

You set the motor right
And ride it every night
You push and pull and you scream and yell
You're my teenage dream

Yeah, You
You're my teenage dream
This is a song I heard in a dream
This is a song I wrote in my sleep
This is a song I don't know what it means...
Track Name: ASSASSINOS
Assassinos - (Assassins)
Al cinema abbandonato - (At the abandoned cinema)
Amazza me - (Murder me)
Ucida me - (Kill me)
Tu non devi spiegare per che - (You don't have to explain why)
Fa mi morire - (Make me die)
Fa mi morire - (Make me die)
Assassinos
Al cinema
Abandonato
Mafioso
Camorra
Mafioso
Camorra
Assassinos
Al cinema
Abandonato
Track Name: ALLEY BAR
We make too much noise in the backyard
We can't afford to drink in the bars
So we open the doors and we spill on the streets
With our drinks and look up at the stars

In the night
Where we belong

The smell of the sawdust and dirt floors
Masks all the drinks that I've spilled
The bartender's friendly and the patrons are saints
And everyone's glass is half filled

In the night
Where we belong

I wanna go
Where everybody knows my name

There's Woody and Norm
And Sam loves Diane
Roseanne and Dan
Barney and Lenny and Karl
There's no Ponda Baba's
Or Doctor Evazan's
The hits are all played by the Cantina Band
And Solo shoots first
While Worf drinks alone
Data learns human from Geordie LaForge
Belloc is there
He gives me a nod:
"The Ark is a radio for speaking to God"
All of my friends
Kisses and hugs
We drink all the beers
And we smoke all the drugs

In the night
Where everybody knows my name...
Track Name: WANNA BE
I'm not a butcher
Or a baker
But I could be if I wanted to be
I'm not a Clipper
Or a Laker
But I could be if I wanted to be

I could be what I wanna be when I wanna be it
I could be what I wanna be yeah yeah yeah

I'm not an officer
Or a janitor
But I could be if I wanted to be
I'm not a millionaire
Or cisgender queer
But I could be if I wanted to be

I could be what I wanna be when I wanna be it
I could be what I wanna be yeah yeah yeah

You gotta push through the fakers
You gotta block out the haters now
Put your pen to the paper
And then you say: "See you later, now"
All the things that they're saying
All the games that their playing
All the time that they're wasting's a pain pain pain
Just do it your own way

I could be what I wanna be when I wanna be it
I could be what I wanna be yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: SHINE SHINE
Shine Shine
In the night like a diamond
All right
All night
And when you think to yourself in the darkness what does it feel like?

Clomp Clomp
On the wiggly stairway
All right
All night
And when you look at yourself in the mirror what does it sound like?

Drink Drink
From your seat at the table
All right
All night
And when you gather yourself in the cold night what does it look like?
And when you look at yourself in the mirror what does it sound like?
And when you think to yourself in the darkness what does it feel like?
Oh no no no no...
