The Zit Song 03:19
Sometimes high school’s so hard, kids can be a drag When your best friend is a pimple who makes everybody gag Introduced him to my classmates, thought he’d be a hit Tammy says “I’d rather die than make friends with your zit,” Hey girl, you gotta get rid of that thing You’ll never be the prom queen Or the teen dream No one’ll call you baby When we see you we scream Susie Sue’s like “Oh my god, have you ever washed your face?” Jojo’s like “I think you’re cute, but can you get that thing erased?” My zit is sobbin’, weepin’- Don’t you want me to stay? When I get home, my Mom says, after school debate, “Sweetheart, if you don’t get rid of that thing…” Well, I wash off my make-up In the bathroom stall Look myself in the mirror Go out in the hall Where Jojo’s like “Ew,” Tammy, they’re still like “Yuck,” But my zit is my friend, and I don’t give a- ‘Cause I’m the prom queen I’m the teen dream Worship me baby When you see me you’ll scream

Coffee? 02:32
Let’s get some coffee, baby When we first were kissin’ you gave me a french press Wrapped your arms around me and we began to undress You took me to the table, laid me among the beans Leaned in and asked me “So how do we grind these?” I said “I can do you kinder, I’ll give you my parent’s grinder.” Grind me please Grind my beans Let’s get more coffee, baby Now your press is collecting dust, my hips you don’t touch The coffee you made me is not even hot, lukewarm dregs at the bottom of the pot When I ask for what I want you laugh, you make me feel like I’m some kind of empty carafe I been trying to get through to you- you just serve me cold shoulder brew You buy premium beans but you won’t flick my bean Won’t you please grind me? You’re a coffee snob and all our love is gone

Girl, Friend 02:27
Know we just got coffee yesterday I got a lotta readings to do Why don’t you come over and we’ll hang out? Oh just give me a time and place Be my friend, girl Be my girlfriend I don’t know how I want this to end I’m diggin’ your dapper dungarees I wanna dance with you ‘til we drop You wanna go outside and get some air? -’cause this crowd is huge I wanna see you try on all my clothes Let me know if you wanna spend the night Made you a mixtape I wanna play “Are you gay?” “IDK”

It’s Saturday night, everyone’s hangin’ with their friends But I don’t mind, ‘cause I got the internet It’s Friday night, everyone’s hangin’ with their crushes But I’m not down, I got wireless access And at the click of a button can make real human connection Perusin’ patterns that are one-of-a-kind Surpasses any thrill I could derive from socializing My "suggested" tab anticipates my desires Now I only ache for touch sometimes And at the click of a button I can achieve satisfaction Window shoppin’ on Etsy, find me searchin’ paisley Psychedelic mini dress, I find it for less than $20 dollars She’s got something to mend, she doesn’t have any friends You see with people, there can be constant complications But with vintage- just gotta deal with alterations Yeah, with people, there can be eternal issues Therefore vintage, it’s the perfect substitution Well, at least, I think

They come from the jungle, or do they come from New York City? Do they come from the cretaceous era or do they come from this millenia? Dino Dames, all the rage Live on stage, go go go You better sleep with one eye open They’re comin’ to your area You better sharpen your claws They’re spreadin’ prehysteria

Woke up this morning with my lover in my arms But you can’t spread butter onto your lover’s charms I was dreamin’ last night of fresh baked bread Can’t spend another minute in my bed I’m a breakfast gal, and I don’t eat lunch Maybe if I like you, I’ll take you out to brunch I gotta go, I gotta run, the early bird special ends at 1 Oh, it doesn’t matter who wakes up next to me By 9 am I can’t pretend that I’m not hungry When my tummy rumbles I know I gotta go Sorry cutie pie, but there’s something you should know Got melodies to make and a guitar to tune I won’t waste the day on you Sunny sides are waitin’ and my toast is hot And Doris already filled my coffee pot
7.
Baby 02:25
Hey, little baby, I wish I could be like you Hey, little baby, I wish I could be you You don’t got nothin’ to do, you don’t got no one to prove Yeah, they already love you, but you just sat there and drooled Discoverin’ the world anew, it’s all a wonder to you You are fascinated by every object that you eye You're the center of attention at every family function You are as adorable as a miniature pumpkin How I wish I could be you, in all your infant flair, I’m twenty all I wanna do’s sleep with my teddy bear Down down baby, down by the rollercoaster Sweet sweet baby, I’ll never let you go

Sick of havin’ boyfriends, done with kissin’ dudes Gonna find another love who won’t give me the blues She’ll take me on her motorbike and we’ll roam among the stars Kick all of the hipster boys out of the lesbian bars But Maddy’s got a boyfriend, Dana’s gone on tour Noticed Joe’s pro-life button and I walked them out the door Maddy’s got a boyfriend, it’s tearin’ me apart Thought I’d find my one queer love from the very start Her leather jacket’s gettin’ stiff She has a scratch that I just can’t itch I wanna take her to the shore But she says the ocean is a bore When my boots go fast hers creep slow When I say stop she says go She leaves me crying in the sand She says she never liked my band! I’m scared that I’m not queer enough That I’m not cool or tough enough They say you should love yourself Before you love somebody else I love myself, why can’t I find Someone who wants to be just mine?

Pretty Boy 04:10
I see you, yeah, I see you I see you suckin’ cigarettes Tuesday afternoons I just walk by, yeah, I walk by ‘Cause you already know we fancy you I could’ve said what was on my mind, Which was: “I would lick all of you until the end of time,” But I kept my comment to myself ‘Cause I didn’t wanna further inflate your ego Pretty boy, darlin’ boy, you’re such a lovely sight When you keep your mouth shut tight Pretty boy, darlin’ boy, I’ll love you from a distance ‘Cause I can’t stand your opinions I hear you, yeah, I hear you, I hear you makin’ your noises that you call "music" I just walk by, yeah, I walk by, I gotta stop my ears from bleedin’ You identify as “feminist” Strictly for the purposes of pickin’ up chicks You call yourself a “New Yorker” But you were born and raised in Westchester And if I get any closer, yeah if you become my lover It’d be dangerous for my health, if I get any closer I’d hand right over all my heart And open up my tender parts With arms crossed, you’d still be smirkin’ While I’m down on knees bleedin’ That’s why I sing

Tattoo! 03:10
I know we’re gettin’ pretty serious I love you but I’m scared I been feelin’ kinda nervous Don’t know if I’m prepared But she held my hand and told me that She really loved me, too, Sterilized the sewing needle- Could she give me a tattoo? Realized I was dreaming and I woke up screaming I am not only my body Built to house your heart I am not a quiet canvas For you to draw your art Next evenin’ I was loungin’ On homeroom teacher’s couch After pleasant conversation, They got the flash sheet out It’s buy one get one, teach informed me, Readying the gun I’ll let you skip your homework If you pick my favorite one
