Track Name: INTO THE NIGHT
I walk along the boulevard
Late at night, no one's around
There's a monster mash in the alleyway
It can't be too much further til the light of day

There's a bat in the belfry tonight
The howling wind makes me feel alright
Their eyes seem to stare right through you
It's perfectly clear that there's nothing left to do

Into the night
It's certainly alright
We may not forget
The night's not over yet

I hear a whistle off in the distance
I'm not aware of its existence
Dark shadows by the light of the moon
Waiting for daybreak, it's coming around too soon

I can't see, there's nowhere to run
I can't hide and it's only begun
A feeling stirs from deep within
It's hard to live a life completely without sin

Into the night
It's certainly alright
We may not forget
The night's not over yet
Track Name: UGLY BUTT
When I look into your eyes
I do not despise
The feelings that I find
When I look at your behind

Oh baby, you sure got an ugly butt
Oh lady, it makes me nauseous in my gut
And when that rump is hanging loose
It makes me want to say, "Hey! Can that caboose!"

You got a perfect nose
But don't take off your clothes
'Cuz if I saw you nude
I just might lose my food

Oh baby, you sure got an ugly butt
Oh lady, it makes me nauseous in my gut
And when that rump is hanging loose
It makes me want to say, "Hey! Can that caboose!"

Rump, tush, butt, rear
That's the thing I really fear
Late at night I wake up screaming
Thinking of your white ass beaming

Oh baby, you sure got an ugly butt
Oh lady, it makes me nauseous in my gut
And when that rump is hanging loose
It makes me want to say, "Hey! Can that caboose!"
Track Name: OH BOY
I am a couch, and I live in a messy house
I sit around all day admiring a chair from far away
I'd tell the chair just this, but I'm afraid our relationship
Might turn around, and then we'd have a hard time being friends

I don't know what to do
The table told me to tell the truth
Coathanger tells me honesty is the best policy
Oh Boy!

I have a friend, the people in the house call him a bed
Toaster laughed at us when we ran down the hall making a fuss
I got stuck in the door, I couldn't even move an inch or more
When the people they came home, they said
WHO MOVED THE COUCH? OH NO! WE'VE BEEN ROBBED!

I don't know what to do
Did you fine me or did I find you?
All I want is a little fun and to run
Oh Boy!

I hate it when the little people
jump on me and they break my springs
They give the stove better attention
and they talk to the phone when it rings

I don't know what to do
They don't talk to me, they never do
The other appliances won't shut up
because I look at people's big butts
Oh Boy!

I am a couch, and I want to leave this house
If I were a bird I'd fly somewhere where I could be heard
I'd never have to sing...
sad songs about people breaking my springs
I'd find myself a chair...
or a pouf whose life with I could share

I don't know what to do
I hope these people get a clue
And send me far away from here, maybe over there
Oh Boy!

Track Name: EVERY NIGHT THIS WEEK
Until the sun rises
Before you even speak
Since men took off their guises
Every night this week

When choices have been issued
With indecision at its peak
Three minutes 'til he's tissued
Every night this week

Every night this week

With great and big endeavors
To find the bridge you seek
You'll live alone together
Every night this week

So now or never seniors
Onions, chives and leeks
Until we reach that great September
Every night this week

Every night this week

Every night this week

I'm gonna love you 'til the day I stop
I'm thinking of you and I wanna be with you a lot
I said every night...

Every night this week.
Track Name: THE PROBLEM
"The problem," she said, "is useful," and said,
"It's far more to pilfer than try and use your head."

A plant in her hand
A smile on her face
Oh look out, you're doing fine
And open up the door

The same old good guys
You've known all your life
But now you'd rather eat pie
Than try and use your head

In Hamlet's soliloquy
The poets go to bed
It's safer to criticize
Than try and use your head

The rain falls from the sky
The mud seeps through my skin
I dream of my neighbors
And I try to use my head

The problem is clear
It's ringing in your ear
Just hold on and sit back
And try to use your head

In a vat full of soup
You hang on to my scoop
It's better just to disregard
Than stand within a group

But still you apologize
The voices in my head
And still I acknowledge-ize
You try to use your head

The rain falls from the sky
The mud seeps through my skin
I dream of my neighbors
And I try to use my head

The poets and preachers
Have teeth that are rotting
Their brains are of jelly
To eat their swill of cotton

But cynics will argue
And tell them they are wrong
But try not to worry
And try and use your head

And now you should realize
The problem in your mind
The plants are all dying
You watered them last week

The rain falls from the sky
The mud seeps through my skin
I dream of my neighbors
And I try to use my head
Track Name: DISCO SONG
I put on my angel flight suit
And my tight polyester pants
I strut down the sidewalk
To the nearest discotheque

I barter my way through the door
A gold chain around my neck
I arrive without my hairbrush
But don't panic, it's not too late

I strut over to the bar
Buy a drink and have a smoke
See the foxy ladies standing around
In their spandex sequined skirts

I sidle right over to her
A big bulge in my pants
She says, "Oooh! Lookie there..."
"Do you wanna go out and dance?"

The Disco King is on his way
He's cumming fast now don't delay
Dance Fever is his favorite show
You know, the show with Deney Terrio-o-o-o-oooo

She looked at me inquisitively
I looked back and nodded my head
We danced The Hustle all night long
When she turned to me and said,

"I really had a great time."
And then she licked her lips seductively
I replied by holding her hand...
"Do you want to do some coke with me?"

SURE!

The Disco King is on his way
He's cumming fast now don't delay
Dance Fever is his favorite show
You know, the show with Deney Terrio-o-o-o-oooo
Track Name: SPECIAL CITY
There's a city where I'd like to be
Where they serve minors alcohol
It will be a fun place to be
'Cuz I'll get drunk 'til the bars close

I need my dose of alcohol
But I left my I.D. at home
They won't serve me here
So I go to the Special City
Where they'll serve me beer

There's a city where I'd like to be
Where everyone looks the same
Everyone but me
Everyone surrounds me bowing at my feet
They think I'm a God but I'm really not well

It's fun to be treated like an idol
For absolutely nothing at all
Everything is so nice and beautiful
Just like the TV set from the Waltons

It's a Special City of my own creation
Lodged in the corners of my mind
It's my home. Home sweet home.

There's a city where I'd like to be
When I need a touch of fantasy
There's a knocking (knock-knock-knock)
That's coming from my ear
It's my brother poking me

There are too many people in the world today
For me to live on minimum wage
How can I enjoy my life while I am working cashier
At the Wendy's round the corner
I have to fry up burgers and I spill shake on my shoes
Oh what am I going to do when a little old lady
Comes walking in asking, "Where's the beef?"
I tell her I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
Track Name: DAYS OF OUR LIVES
I get off work at 2:55
I rush right home to watch Days of Our Lives
It's so dramatic, it's so intriguing
Look out Roman! Oh no, he's bleeding!

I sit by the tube on the edge of my chair
My baby starts crying, I don't even care
Justin and Adrienne are flying to Greece
If that's where the action is Steve wants a piece!

These are The Days of Our Lives
General Hospital does not satisfy
All My Children is a bore
And As The World Turns is no more

Victor Kiriakis is a bad, bad man
Shane says the I.S.A. has a plan
Kayla was poisoned, Marlena is dead
Will Jack and Melissa ever go to bed?

People who say watching "Days" is for scum
They don't know about Dr. Horton and son
There's danger and romance and heartbreak and greed
And lots of twists in the plot to tend to your needs!

These are The Days of Our Lives
General Hospital does not satisfy
All My Children is a bore
And As The World Turns is no more

Steve! Kayla! Victor! Abe! Diana! Kimberly! Jack! And Norm DePlume!

I block out the world, I alter my life
So I can find the time to watch Shane and his wife
My brothers and sisters are angry with me
'Cuz from three o'clock to four o'clock I hog the TV!

Now Anjelica's pregnant with the Kiriakis heir
Roman's got amnesia, there's nothing up there
Steve and Kayla got married after all their thrills
And Eve tried to kill herself by taking lots of pills

Now I'm gonna go set my VCR
So I can watch the show twenty times or more
I'm looking for symbolism, finding a theme
I don't think I could find a better show on TV!

These are The Days of Our Lives
General Hospital does not satisfy
All My Children is a bore
And As The World Turns is no more
