Track Name: I'm Not Responsible For Your Happiness
I’m Not Responsible For Your Happiness (So Why Do I Feel Like I Am?)

When we’re driving in my car, driving in my car
I hold your pretty little hand
Kiss your pretty little hand

When we’re drinking at the bar, drinking at the bar
Fresh drinks in your pretty little hand
A fresh drink in your pretty little hand

When we’re lying in my bed, underneath your head
My big strong arm
My big strong arm

When we’re driving in my car, driving in my car, la la la la la
I hold your pretty little hand
I kiss your pretty little hand

But I’m not responsible for your happiness
So why do I feel like I am?
But I’m not responsible for your happiness
So why do I feel like I am?

When we’re looking at the stars, looking at the stars
I put one in your pretty little hand
Put one in your pretty little hand

If I were like the sun, if I were like the sun
I’d give you just a perfect little tan
Give you just a perfect little tan

If I could gather all the fun, gather all the fun
I’d put it in your pretty little smile
Put it in your pretty little smile

If I could gather all the stars, gather all the stars, la la la la la
I’d put them in your pretty little hand
I’d put them in your pretty little hand, but

Chorus

Bridge:
It’s a job that I don’t mind
I am happy almost all the time
I don’t find it all that tough
To give you lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of love

So when we’re lying in my bed, lying in my bed
Just touch me with your pretty little hands
Touch me with your pretty little hands

And I’ll give you all the love, give you all the love
Love love love love love
I’ll give you all the lovin’ that I can, give you all the loving that I can

But I’m not responsible . . . .
Track Name: Nothing But A Good Time
Nothing But A Good Time

Hotter than the ocean baby
Hotter than the blue sky
Hotter than the sunshine baby
Hotter than the cool, cool summertime breeze

Hotter than my lover’s arms around me
Hotter than her kissing in the middle of the night
Hotter than our cold hearts beating side by side
Gonna take my little girl for a dirty ride

But she said, “what do you want from love?
What do you want from love?
What do you want from love?
What do you want from love?”

Nothing but a good time

But she said, “what do you want from love?
Nothing but a good time
Track Name: Don't Run Away
Don’t Run Away

Did you hear that noise outside?
Is that why you ran to hide?
Don’t run away
‘Cause I’m gonna make sure everything’s ok
Woo hoo, woo ooh ooh ooh
Woo hoo, woo ooh ooh ooh
‘Cause I’m gonna make sure everything’s ok.

Banging on our front door
Who do you think they’re looking for?
Don’t run away
‘Cause I’m gonna make sure everything’s ok
Woo hoo, woo ooh ooh ooh
Woo hoo, woo ooh ooh ooh
‘Cause I’m gonna make sure everything’s ok.

Did you hear that noise outside?
Is that why you ran to hide?
Don’t run away
‘Cause I’m gonna make sure everything’s ok.
Track Name: So Fast
So Fast

Suitcase on the floor
That’s ok with me, you don’t live here no more
I got pictures full of memories
And I got pictures no one will ever see
Like the time we went down to the Jersey Shore
Having a good time, till it started to pour
So we ducked for cover in a photo booth
And took a picture of me kissing you

And I’m never looking back
Never looking back
On my past ‘cause it happened so fast

Why do things work out the way they do?
Are you happy now ‘cause I’m not with you?
Gonna be strong, gonna walk away
And I’m not gonna listen to a word they say

And I’m never looking back
Never looking back
On my past ‘cause it happened so fast

Going down, going down
Going down, going down
Going down, going down
Going down, going down

So fast
Track Name: My Old Lady's Got No Heart
My Old Lady

My old lady's got no heart
She stole my car and broke my heart
She makes me go back to the start
'Cause my old lady's got no heart.

But she holds me near and dear

My old lady drags me down
She holds me down right to the ground
She picks me up and spins me round
'Cause my old lady drags me down.

But she holds me near and dear

My old lady's got no heart
She stole my heart and broke my car
She makes me go down to the start
'Cause my old lady's got no heart.

But she holds me near and dear
Track Name: Avalon
Avalon

I know a place called Avalon
Always breaking like a wave
Someday soon it will be gone
Along the coast, along the brave

Sing of a place called Avalon
Bikini girls and handsome boys
Feet in the sand, sunglasses on
The children playing with their toys

Avalon, Avalon
You’ll be gone
Avalon
Track Name: Think About Tomorrow
Think About Tomorrow

“I think that that sounds pretty,” she said
Walking through the door
“Let’s get out of the city,” she said
“And search for something more.

There’s something ‘bout the winter
That makes me feel so cold
There’s something ‘bout the winter
That makes me feel so old.”

Think about tomorrow
Tomorrow never comes
The thing about tomorrow
Is baby I don’t know

Think about the springtime
Think about the fall
Think about the summer
Think about it all

Think I’m gonna miss you
More than you will know
I think I’m gonna miss you
Baby when I go

(Alt. lyrics:
Think about the winter
A time to fall in love
I think I’m gonna miss you
Baby when I go)

Think about tomorrow
Tomorrow never comes
The thing about tomorrow
Is baby I don’t know
Track Name: Barkley
Barkley

There’s a man who sits on the side of the road
Why he does it, nobody knows.
And he flashes his own gang signs for everyone to see.
So take a cruise down the Cuthbert to see Barkley with me.

Barkley, do you remember be?
I’m driving by for the tenth time today.
Barkley, please don’t ever, ever leave.
We’d do anything to make you stay.

He’s a kind gentle man but he thinks he’s thirteen
Takes his shirt off to dance and his sweatpants are green
Headphones always on as he throws the punches in the air
If you drive by and honk you’ll get that crazy Barkley stare.

Barkley, do you remember be?
I’m driving by for the tenth time today.
Barkley, please don’t ever, ever leave.
We’d do anything to make you stay.

Remember the times when you went to the little girl’s b-ball games?
The people just laughed at ‘ya, aw Barkley, it was a shame
But you stood up, threw a snake sign and jumped all around
Where’s your crown Barkley ‘cause you’re the king of this town.


Barkley, do you remember be?
I’m driving by for the tenth time today.
Barkley, please don’t ever, ever leave.
We’d do anything to make you stay.
Track Name: Graduation Day
Graduation Day

Graduation day, it always comes before too long
Always comes before too long
Graduation day, it’s time to sing a different song
Time to sing a different song
Graduation day, it’s time to learn to play
Learn to play another game

Say goodbye to all our friends
I hope this sunset never, ever ends

Graduation day, it always comes before too long
Always comes before too long
Graduation day, oh won’t you make my poor heart strong
Help me move it all along
Graduation day, I won’t stay another day
I’ve got another thing to say

Say goodbye to all my books
Cherish all these last goodbyes and all of these last looks
No longer boys, no longer girls
Open up my arms and take on the world
