Track Name: Robot Spiders
TATTOO TED LEFT HIS HOUSE ON THE BEACH
TO MEET THE GIRL FROM THE DATING SITE
AFTER HE PARKED THE CAR, HE WALKED IN, HIT THE BAR
AND ORDERED TWO GLASSES OF WHITE
SHE WALKED IN AND HE WAVED WITH A GRIN
SHE SAID, “HI” AND STUCK OUT HER HAND
SHE SAID, “YOU MUST BE TED,” HE SHOOK HER HAND AND SAID
“THAT WOULD MAKE YOU LEIGHANN”
LEIGHANN WAS SO BEAUTIFUL, TED THOUGHT HE MIGHT GO BERSERK
TED BECAME VISIBLY EXCITED
WHEN SHE ASKED HIM WHAT HE DID FOR WORK

I BUILD ROBOT SPIDERS
ENGINEERED TO KILL AND REPLACE
THE PEOPLE YOU AND I CALL THE HUMAN RACE
AND ALL I WANT IS A LOVING FRIEND
TO SIT IN MY BEACH HOUSE WITH ME
AND WATCH THE WORLD END

LEIGHANN RAN SCREAMING FROM THE RESTAURANT
BUT TED FIGURED HE’D TRY AGAIN
HE SET A RENDEZ-VOUS WITH BETTY SUE
AT A COFFEE SHOP AROUND THE BEND
LEIGHANN HAD BEEN CUTE AND CLEVER TO BOOT
BUT BETTY SUE PUT HER RIGHT TO SHAME
THEY TALKED FOR A SPELL, THINGS WERE STARTING TO GEL
SO THEY WENT TO GO BOWL A FEW FRAMES
TED WAS AVOIDING THE LINE OF DISCUSSION THAT RUINED HIS LAST DATE
THEN BETTY SAID, “HEY, WHAT’S YOUR JOB?
“I DON’T THINK I EVER GOT THAT STRAIGHT.”

“IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED,”
TED THOUGHT, AS HE DROVE TO MEET JOY
HE TRIED A DIFFERENT APPROACH
AND ASKED FIRST HOW SHE WAS EMPLOYED
AND JOY SAID TO TED

I BUILD ROBOT SCORPIONS
ENGINEERED TO KILL AND REPLACE…

Track Name: No Funkies
NO FUNKIES
WE DON’T WANT NO FUNKIES IN HERE
THEY SMELL REALLY BAD AND THEY DRINK ALL OUR BEER
WE DON’T WANT NO FUNKIES IN HERE

I WAS OKAY A FEW YEARS AGO
WHEN THERE WERE JUST A FEW AROUND
BUT NOW IT SEEMS LIKE THEY’RE EVERYWHERE
AND THE SMELL IS BRINGING ME DOWN

I WAS OKAY A LITTLE WHILE BACK
WHEN THEY STAYED IN THEIR PART OF TOWN
BUT NOW THEY’RE LIVING RIGHT DOWN THE STREET
AND THE SMELL IS MAKING ME FROWN

THE ONE WHO LOVES ME SAYS I GOTTA LOVE THE FUNKIES
EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE TAKING OUR JOBS
THE ONE WHO LOVES ME SAYS I GOTTA LOVE THE FUNKIES
CUZ THE FUNKY HELPED ME WHEN I GOT ROBBED
THE FUNKY HELPED ME WHEN I GOT ROBBED
THE FUNKY HELPED ME WHEN I GOT BEAT
THE FUNKY HELPS ME WHEN I’M DOWN AND OUT
THE FUNKY HELPS ME WHEN I’M ON THE STREET

THEN ONE DAY I WAS ALL ALONE
OUTSIDE OF TOWN, I LOST MY CELL PHONE
HIT BY A CAR AND LEFT FOR DEAD
THEN ALL I SEE IS A FUNKY’S HEAD
HE PICKED ME UP AND CLEANED ME OFF
DROVE TO AN E.R. AND DROPPED ME OFF
PAID THE BILL AND DROVE AWAY
I KNOW, MY HEART, IT CHANGED THAT DAY

LOVE THE FUNKIES, WE GOTTA LOVE THE FUNKIES
Track Name: Natalie
NATALIE IS THE GIRL I PASS IN THE HALLWAY
SHE’S BEEN POPPING UP IN ALL MY DREAMS
WHEN SHE WEARS HER HAT SHE’S EASY TO SPOT FROM A DISTANCE
YOU KNOW I’D REALLY LOVE TO MAKE HER SCENE
I ALWAYS TRY TO SAY HI
HALF THE TIME SHE WALKS RIGHT BY
SHE BREAKS MY HEART ALMOST EVERY DAY
BUT I CAN’T LOOK AWAY

NATALIE
WHY YOU WANNA BE SO MEAN TO ME?
NATALIE
I LOVE ONLY YOU, OH, CAN’T YOU SEE?

NATALIE ASKED ME ON SUNDAY TO WRITE HER A LETTER
SHE SAID SHE LIKES IT BETTER THAN THE PHONE
I CHECK THE MAIL EVERY DAY FOR HER RESPONSE NOW
NATALIE, BABY, PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME ALONE
I GOT HER LETTER TODAY
SHE DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY
ALL THE THINGS THAT I WANNA KNOW
SHE REFUSES TO SHOW

SHE SAID YEAH WHEN I ASKED HER TO THE HIGH SCHOOL DANCE
I WAS LIVING ON A PRAYER, I WAS LOOKING FOR ROMANCE
I TOOK HER HOME, WENT AROUND TO OPEN HER CAR DOOR
SHE SAID, “YOU’RE REALLY NICE, BUT PLEASE DON’T CALL ME ANYMORE”
Track Name: Dog -> Hurricane
SOMEWHERE IN THE QUITE FAR EAST
A BUTTEFLY FLAPS ITS WINGS
AND SOME TIME LATER, AROUND THE WORLD,
CAROLINA FEELS A HURRICANE’S STING
SOME HAVE POSTULATED
THAT THESE THINGS ARE RELATED
COULD THE SAME EFFECT BE TRIGGERED
BY A HUMMINGBIRD OR A FLAG?
OR MAYBE A TAIL THAT WAGS?

COULD MY DOG CAUSE A HURRICANE?

SOME MIGHT SAY THAT A BUTTERFLY
HAS AN EXOTIC FEEL
I MAINTAIN IT’S NOT AS CUTE
AS A KITTEN OR A SEAL
I THINK THAT MAN’S BEST FRIEND
COULD WIN OUT IN THE END
IS IT POSSIBLE MORE PEOPLE
WOULD THINK THIS THEORY IS CORRECT
IF THEY CALLED IT THE ‘DOG EFFECT?’

PUPPY
I CAN’T TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
THAT YOUR TAIL COULD BE PART
OF A WEATHER CATASTROPHE
OH PUPPY
WHAT WOULD BECOME OF ME?
IF I FORBID YOU
FROM WAGGING FREELY?
Track Name: I Am Yours
I AM YOUR REAL HERO
I AM YOURS ALL DAY
I AM YOUR REALY HERO
I AM YOURS ALL DAY

I AM YOURS, I AM YOURS, I AM YOURS
KAREN, I AM YOURS, I AM YOURS, I AM YOURS

I AM YOUR REAL CHAMPION
I AM YOURS ALL NIGHT
I AM YOUR REAL LOVER
I AM YOURS ALL NIGHT

YOU GOT TO LOVE ME, BABY, BABY, ALL NIGHT
