Track Name: My Favorite Dream
I don’t want to get away from the feeling
I had when I first stopped dreaming
Early morning in the cozy covers
Rolling over and I soon discover
You lying next to me
And if it’s still a dream
then you know I guess I’m sleeping in.

Hey you can go away on a holiday
But you gotta save me something
Hey you can go away on a holiday
But you gotta come sometime soon

I don’t want to get away from the feeling
I had when I first stopped dreaming
Early morning in the cozy covers
Rolling over and I soon discover
You lying next to me
And if it’s still a dream well you know
then you know I guess I’m sleeping in.

I can’t help but be amused
to find you lying next to me
Yeah you’re like my favorite dream.
You’re like my favorite dream
Dream, dream dream
Yeah you’re like my favorite dream
Dream, dream, dream
You’re my favorite dream
Track Name: Jeans and Mittens
Jeans and mittens and a sweater
I love this weather
Nothing beats us spending time together
In this dreary weather

A kiss in the morning and you’re leaving
Seems like forever (and ever)
Anticipating our next time together
Is much better in this weather

Sweet sweet sweet
You make me feel completely loved
I’m in love
You make me feel like dancin’, romancin’
Jumpin’ through the air
Tomorrow’s always brighter with you there.

You make me feel like singing and you’re bringing
A smile to my face.
This heart is beating faster nowadays

Jeans and mittens and a sweater
I love this weather
Nothin’ beats us spending time together
In this dreary weather

A kiss in the morning and you’re leavin’
Seems like forever (and ever and ever)
Anticipating our next time together
Is much better in this weather.


Sweet sweet sweet
You make me feel completely loved
I’m in love
You make me feel like dancin’, romancin’
Jumpin’ through the air
Tomorrow’s always brighter with you there.
You make me feel like singing and you’re bringing
A smile to my face.
This heart is beating faster nowadays
This heart is beating faster nowadays
This heart is beating faster nowadays.
Track Name: Stop the Bombs
Stop the bombs
Before they start
This time we’re aiming foir their hearts
Pocketbooks, these guys are crooks
Well I like stripes and I like stars
But not on every single car
I think I saw a guy with a stars and stripes guitar.

I don’t wanna kill no one
My momma told me killing’s wrong
And then she sang a little song
Na na na na na na na na
Slow down, slow down
This is a public service announcement
Down, slow down
Look at the good things all around

Wah ooh

Like ice cream
And flowers
And some things
That aren’t ours
Sour candy spray
A new recipe
Peace
Hooray!

Stop the bombs before they start
This time we’re aiming for their hearts
Pocket books, these guys are crooks
I like stripes, I like stars
Stop the bombs before they start
This is getting to the sticky part
An empty shell, a broken heart
We only want to sing our songs for love
We only wanna sing our songs for love
Hey Hey, Ho Ho, the War machine has got to go
Hey Hey, Ho Ho, the War machine has got to go

Stop the bombs before they start
This time we’re aiming for their hearts
Pocket books, these guys are crooks
I like stripes, I like stars
Stop the bombs before they start
This is getting to the sticky part
An empty shell, a broken heart
We only want to sing our songs for love
We only wanna sing our songs for love
We only wanna sing our songs for love
We only wanna sing our songs for love.
Track Name: The Garden
We’ve lain in a bed of roses
Tangled up in garden hoses
You came along to rescue me from the wildlife.

You inspire crop rotation.
And provide the irrigation
To avert any desiccation by moonlight.

How does your garden grow?
Mine’s fine thanks a lot we’re into Indian Summer now.
We hatched the most beautiful plot
And I’ll keep on holding your hand with the plough.

In the merry month of maying
With birds and squirrels playing
We sowed so many seeds in the sunshine. (so many seeds)

September’s golden hues
Yield to winter’s steely blues.
We’ll preserve this harvest through til the springtime.

How does your garden grow?
Mine’s fine thanks a lot we’re into Indian Summer now.
We hatched the most beautiful plot
And I’ll keep on holding your hand with the plough.
Track Name: Party Time
For so long, I loved you so shamelessly
You were never sure if you really never wanted to fall
Inside out 'cause I thought you were the same as me, you were just joking
But I wasn't joking, 'cause I didn't know you at all

I wanna know
When will you be mine?

Step by step and we're checking out the sound effects
Are there pictures of skylab falling down where you are?
Neck and neck and it always had the same effect, you know I mean it
But you didn't mean it, so you didn't give me a call

I wanna know
When will you be mine?
Yes, I wanna know
When will you be mine?
'Cause I think about it all the time

And it's party time and we're check-check-checking out the scenery
And it's all inside 'til I find, find, find out what you mean to me
And it's party time time and we're check check checking out the scenery
Smoke-smoke-smoking all the cigarettes 'til you find, find, find out what it means to me

I wanna know
When will you be mine?
Yes, I wanna know
When will you be mine?

It's not party time
It's not party time
And I think about it all the time
Track Name: Cool Sound
Cool sound, walkin’ around.
Nice day, want it to stay.
One time, I thought you were mine.
Next year I’ll still have this tear.

White wall, thought you might call.
Pink shirt, I always get hurt.
Green dress, oh what a mess.
Blue shoes, have you heard the news?

Ice cream, a really a nice dream.
French fries, open my eyes
Juice box, pull up my socks
Bean sprout, yo I be out.
Track Name: Guess What!?
Guess What?
You suck!
Guess what?
You suck!
Know why?
Guess Why.
Guess what?
You suck!
Know why?
You’re mean.

And how dare you not say hi to me when I see you in the street
And how dare you not be nice to me when I see you at some party
Well get over yourself
And learn some social skills

Guess what?
You suck!
Know why?
Guess Why.
Guess what?
You suck!
Know why?
You’re mean.

And how dare you not say hi to me when I see you in the street
And how dare you not be nice to me when you show up at my party?
Well get over yourself
And learn some social skills
You are really a troll
So you can’t ever be my friend
Uh-uh.
Track Name: Sapphire
I don't like their color
It's hard to remember
I'll think of a sapphire
That's far too expensive
I'll call her high maintenance
She says I'm impatient

I've seen all of her scars
She shows them quite freely
And when we start talking

I'll turn off the TV
I'll turn off the radio
I'll turn off the radio

I don't think we'll do it
It's hard enough to hold her
Those lackluster kisses
That pitiful shoulder
I can't think of anything
I can't think at all

I'm glad I don't like her
Because that would be trouble
Such lackluster kisses
Oh, that horrible shoulder
I can't think of anything at all

It's six in the morning
I feel like a husk, but I'm thankful she's sleeping
I'm thinking of us
Oh, you pitiful poor thing
I think we're in trouble

It's six in the morning
I feel like a husk, but I'm glad that she's sleeping
I'm thinking of us
Oh, you pitiful poor thing
I think we're in trouble

It's six in the morning
I'm glad that you're sleeping
I'm touching your shoulder
I'm watching your breathing
You pitiful poor thing
I think we're in trouble

It's six in the morning
I'm happy you're sleeping
I'm touching your shoulder
I'm watching you breathe
Oh, you pitiful poor thing
I think we're in trouble
Track Name: Good Migrations (The Hanukkah Song)
Why can’t there be Hanukkah in springtime?
Why’d they have to bury it in the snow?
Can’t be right we’re stuck with Hanukkah in winter.
I want to spin the dreidel in the arms of the sun’s warm glow.

Hey guess what when it’s freezing here it’s balmy.
And beautiful in the hemisphere below.
Yeah when we’re all suffering they’ll be making merry
In a festival of lights where the oil burns slow.

I want to move to Cape Town, I want to move to Melbourne, I want to move to Buenos Aires in the sun
I want to move to Auckland, I want to move to Durban, I want to move to Santiago have sun fun

When you feel the sun on your skin and a warm breeze through your hair you’ll never want to let the light go out.
Never want to let the light go out.

Why can’t there be Hanukkah in summer?
Why’d they have to slip it on the ice?
Come on let’s spin it in the opposite direction.
O a Hanukkah down south might have more spice.

I want to move to Cape Town, I want to move to Melbourne, I want to move to Buenos Aires in the sun
I want to move to Auckland, I want to move to Durban, I want to move to Santiago have sun fun

Cape Town baby, Melbourne maybe, Buenos Aires now,
Auckland would be, Durban could be, Santiago wow!

When you feel the sun on your skin and a warm breeze through your hair you’ll never want to let the light go out.
Never want to let the light go out.

Don’t let the light go out it’s lasted for so many years.
Don’t let the light go out let it shine through our love and our tears.

Track Name: Nate is Straight
Dana loves Rachel and Max likes Chris
And Rob once sucked some random guy’s dick
And Serena and Tom once got it on with Laurie and Tina and Derek and John

But Nate, Nate is straight, Nate is straight and that’s just great.

He spends hours in the bathroom morning noon and night
And his friends are all girls and his jeans
And he likes to mess around with all the pretty boys
He’s always in the market for some new sex toys

But Nate, Nate is straight, Nate is straight and that’s just great.

In his flaming red leather belt and lovely long curls
He’s the karaoke queen on the stage at pearls.
He’s a real Vermonter and not really a jock
Still he’ll never feel the thrill of cock on cock

No cuz Nate, Nate is Straight, Nate is Straight Nate is straight
In fact he’s on a date
With this girl named Kate
They won’t be back til late
Nate is totally straight
Just thought we’d let you know
Cuz lots of people ask.

Track Name: Flowers, Kisses, You
Spent some time today
Thinkin’ about tomorrow.
If you don’t know what to say
Here’s some words you can borrow

Flowers, kisses, you
You take all my cares away
Flowers, Kisses, you
You take all my cares away
(all away, all away)

Play another folk rock song
Or let me help you choose it
Come lie down with me
We’ll listen to our music

Flowers, kisses, you
You take all my cares away
Flowers, Kisses, you
You take all my cares away
(all away, all away)
