When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call I get so optimistic that I start to fall Fall fall fall fall in love So blindly without a clue When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call Say what? I only know a little but I think I know it all I fill in the blanks so that I can know it all 'cause the way that I have her in my mind Is the way she'll be when I make her mine When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call Come on! The way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now The way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now The way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now I said the way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now Fall fall fall fall in love So blindly without a clue When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call Come on! When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call

They had a one minute tango They didn't rehearse It wasn't very graceful It was rather terse He was a little clumsy She was a little drunk They couldn't do it They didn't last long They stunk It was a one minute tango They could not find the beat It wasn't so graceful And he had two left feet He was a terrible dancer And her heart sank They couldn't do it They didn't last long They stunk

I was born an American I think about it a lot I wonder how and why and when To be born and American I wonder what it means Who am I and who are we and is this really alright? To be born an American Born an American Born an American But I was born an American A place to call my home A microcosm of the world And this place called America Well you hear about it a lot Politicians with big ambitions For that we've fought fought and fought Born an American I was born an American Born an American Oh say can you see if nation might be wrong Oh tis of thee that I've wondered far too long Is it a dream that's just a dream thats just a dream In a world we don't belong Do we belong? Do we belong? Do we belong? Born an American Born an American Born an American

Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go I think you should go 'cause I'm tired of the city The city's just no good And the hustle and bustle gets my head in a tussle Just no place to call home Can't call it home Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go I think you should go They say the grass is greener But there it's really green And the Shannon flows with poet's prose It's a place to call my scarlet rose My scarlet rose Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go I think you should go Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go 'cause this is a place to call home Where I want to be from There's nowhere I'd rather be than County Leitrim Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' to County Leitrim

Macaroni a name I whisper soft and sweetly From a place that I once knew please complete me Because I want to purchase you In a large saucepan melt the butter over low heat Then you stir in flower salt and pepper until smooth Stirring constantly heat it until its thick take off the heat and add a 1/2 cup of cheese When the cheese melts put the macaroni in a dish Pour the cheese mixture and don't forget to mix it real well Sprinkle paprika add the left over cheese and bake at 375 In 20 minutes I could be eating a delicious meal but I'm starving cause you're nowhere to be found On this island ich bien einsam Macaroni ich bien einsam Macaroni ich bien einsam Macaroni Macaroni ich bien einsam

This songs about a farm Animals don't make it out alive Trying to make sense of mind games They can't plan their lives Some will try to run Others can hide away But none will make it out Sheffield Farms They all have hope in their eyes How fast it dies It makes me cry This songs about a farm Where I too have died Some will try to run Others can hide away But none will make it out Sheffield Farms Some had to try and run While others tried to hide But now they all have died 'cause nobody makes it out of Sheffield Farms

They say every word that they want to say Break people down when they're on break Prey on my soul when they going to pray There's no, running away All the time It's like this, all the time Never quit, overtime Never quit, they're going to find Weaknesses, and all the rhyme n reason To justify I'm a heathen Nothing that I could speak That'll get em to just believe me Cuz I'm daydreamin' Ya they say I'm daydreamin' Ain't nothing that I could speak That'll get em to just believe That I'm not the person they think And they shouldn't be judging me Cause I'm daydreamin' Ya they say I'm daydreamin' Wait, why do I even play these games?/ Why am I weak and feel ashamed? Why do I ask so many why, Questions that make me realize, Their real eyes, are full of real lies Don't want to let them, have their way Don't wanna let them, have me pay Don't wanna let them em say what they mean They don't mean what they say, They're just mean full of rage Meaning afraid of no meaning Cause I'm daydreaming Ya they say I'm daydreaming/ Ain't nothing that I could speak That'll get em to just believe That I'm not the person they think And they shouldn't be judging me Made for a purpose Made on this earth, for what it's worth, I can't purchased Made to be pure, I don't really care, How you interpret Who I am, what I am, what I be, what you need?, why you so nervous? Tell me, do I make you nervous? Close curtains, show's over Not the same punk person, You could gloat over, no sir I am telling you we are not kosher I am telling you, don't get closer Roll the creds, before I say something that we're all going to regret Wait, why am I so upset? Took toll on me like I got overhead Wait, why am I so upset? Took toll on me like I owe Goldman Sachs Got to fight these caged demons Daydreaming

Drink up suckas hahaha We headed outta Cali Guns blazin' for the sunset Two desperadoes headed straight for Vegas Full throttle The freeways jam packed I pulled the periscope We goin full suds Park them waters bro We doin' 99 But Johnny Law was watchin' Time to blast off George Jetson ya'll See them city lights Keep on flashin' by No one stoppin' now Let's ride Drink up We raised our glasses to the city that would soon be gone No more picket fences No more green lawns It's just a desert now The way it used to be No more Wynn casinos Retirees We told them many times - ya gotta conserve the water but the heat just got - hotter and hotter But they didn't listen - to what we said They just kept on buildin' and - makin' bread So we're commin' with a offer that they can't refuse We've got the goods they want for their dried up blues So drink up suckas drink up suckas drink up drink up drink up drink up Hey man.. I need a fix.. you got that good water? I'm so parched. I want to water my lawn. Yeah.. you know we have what you need. You want a bottle? A jug? We've even got the water coolers with us today. I'll take it all! Give it to me! We hope you like our H20 and now there's something you should know The water you're taking isn't free it comes with a quite a hefty fee All the money that you done stole - from all the people in casinos You've gotta give it back now don't delay - You better get started right away Pay up suckas Pay up suckas pay up pay up

In his darkest hour Closing the door behind him Longing for a pancake In this hour when no one is around at 3am At 3am were you sleeping When the pancake man was creeping To the 24 hour diner Life is pounding at your door Demanding that you live it more While you're sleeping It's 3am It's a short walk up the hill To a road that he finds empty A skyline to the north A skylines never the same at 3am There is a 15 minute wait But that doesn't stop him He needs his gingerbread man pancake Gingerbread man pancake At his favorite seat at the bar Everyone expects him at 3am At 3am were you sleeping When the pancake man was creeping To the 24 hour diner Life is pounding at your door Demanding that you live it more While you're sleeping It's 3am Finishing his last bite Pausing to ponder life Leaving a 10 and some change And back out into the night Across the empty road And back down the hill The moon beaming through the trees He falls into bed at 3am At 3am were you sleeping When the pancake man was creeping To the 24 hour diner Life is pounding at your door Demanding that you live it more While you're sleeping It's 3am 3am 3am 3am 3am 3am 3am

You wait wait wait for the city You wait wait wait in the city hall You wait wait wait for the city You wait wait wait in the city hall I'm starting to wonder where my taxes go (so slow, so slow) This giant system it moves so slow Why do I put my trust in government When government doesn't trust me You wait wait wait for the city You wait wait wait in the city hall You wait wait wait for the city You wait wait wait in the city hall I could be sleeping up under a tree (nap nap, nap nap) Or having fun dancing under the sun But since I put my trust in government I've been sitting here for hours and hours Well your trust in government was your first mistake Ya shoulda known they're all a bunch of fakes They're crooks, they're criminals, they're all corrupt come on man, don't you know what's up? I called the president to see if he could make a change (yes we can, yes we can) But all I got was -Please remain on hold, the next available operator will be right with you- You could put your trust in government but government They don't trust you You wait wait wait for the city You wait wait wait in the city hall You wait wait wait for the city You wait wait wait in the city hall It goes tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock It goes tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock

Some swim, some don't None of the buildings float There's no smog in the sky and the parking is free Sinking feeling truth revealing unappealing - disaster 3 million people into the sea Living their lives in an ocean city Soggy mountain fake breast stroke The rich can live under the golden moat Beamers float by but the mercedes sink Sinking feeling truth revealing unappealing - disaster 3 million people into the sea Living their lives in an ocean city Lalalalalalalalalalala San Berny Beach next to the Orange Palisades Sinking feeling truth revealing unappealing - disaster 3 million people into the sea Living their lives in an ocean city
