Track Name: American Girl
Bartender, give me something to quench my need
Kisses are a dime a dozen, something stronger please
I could waste my days in all these Kreuzberg cafes

The boxer gave me such a nasty tease
Drunk and flirtin in the afternoon on Market Street
Would you like to start an uncommon romance with me?

I know I'm going to have to pay
but there's something about you babe
I'm losin my cool for you
I wanna get the feelin back
I want you. I want you. I want you. I want your sex.

Throw back my hair, sink way down deep
Pop and lockin in the old Vienna armory
Would you like to slow dance in the lonely hearts club with me?

Click, photograph. Throw it in the Eurotrash
I'm an American girl, and I'm pushin all the buttons
I'm an American

I know I'm going to have to pay
but there's something about you babe
I'm losin my cool for you
I wanna get the feelin back
I want you. I want you. I want you. I want your sex.
Track Name: Hard Way
I know I shouldn't but you're just too good
You said you couldn't and I understood
I'll find out the hard way if I love you someday
I was made for this
your body and your kiss
I'll find out the hard way if I love you someday

Ready or not I"m fallin for you
ready or not I'm fallin, fallin for you, I'm fallin for you

Let me tell you about this man
he's got blinding blue eyes and working hands
I can't compromise on one like him
Yeah I could tell my story
no, never mind
there's no glory in it
I'll get out my own way
I'll give up this hard way someday

Ready or not I'm fallin for you
Ready or not I'm fallin for you
Ready or not I'm fallin, fallin for you, I'm fallin
Ready or not I'm fallin, fallin for you, I'm fallin for you

Naked we came and we'll ride out again
Hair to the wind
Imma be the death man's bride
and maybe in between you can tell me what all it means
and you can hold my hand, you can hold my hand
(2X)

Are you ready yeah, you ready yeah
you ready or not
are you ready yeah, you ready yeah
Cause I was made for this
Track Name: Hella Copters
We came for the victory
We came to put on a show
Hella lotta hella copters follow follow follow
wherever we go

We came for the winning
We came to put up a fight
Hella lotta noise is going down around this town all right
Hella lotta noise is going down around this town all right
Track Name: Paper Dolls
Hello night, have I been sleeping?
You take me far in your midnight trains and taxi cars
It smells like oranges and gasoline
and people sweat and hustle, they hustle

Paper dolls fall as we drive past the city walls
so popular, so small, so small
All the King's men line up their guard again
under cover of dark

Hello baby, do you remember me?
I held your body in the night.
The moon was low, the furnace whispering
and people you know outside, outside

Paper dolls fall as we drive past the city walls
so popular, so small, so small
All the King's men line up their guard again
under cover of dark
Track Name: Like It's Bad
It's no use to me repeating histories
Every day turns to dust
There's something sinister in perfect manners
Souls covered up in a fine rust
So take me in, it's too hard to say why
I need to float beneath the surface for a while
I don't mean to be cold, but there's more to find
Maybe I'll tell you about it the next time

Don't treat me like it's bad, bad, bad
I don't wanna have the same day I already had
I don't think it's wrong waking up a little more strong

Mysteries are shy, too cool to be bothered and too cruel to mind
It's not for me to say, you got to know for yourself
and if you get too cool for me then you learned well

So don't, don't, don't,
Don't treat me like it's bad, bad, bad
I don't wanna have the same day I already had
I don't think it's wrong waking up a little more strong
Track Name: Yo Mama
So that's your best pick-up line
about my booty (I know it's juicy)
I heard it so many times from every other guy on this street
Not even a hesitation or a gentleman's dignity
You wanna have a conversation?
You sound like a tool to me

Did you learn that from yo mama?
Did she teach you to holler like that?
Can't imagine that yo mama goes around talkin such trash
Did you learn that from yo mama?
Did she teach you to holler like that?
I won't talk about yo mama if you won't talk about my -

So you wanna piece of this thigh for your dinner meat?
If I don't turn around you'll be sayin "she's so mean"
At the local butcher shop there are better men than you
I could pick one out before I'd talk to a man so rude

Did you learn that from yo mama?
Did she teach you to holler like that?
Can't imagine that yo mama goes around talkin such trash
Did you learn that from yo mama?
Did she teach you to holler like that?
I won't talk about yo mama if you won't talk about my -

He wants my bedonk-a-donk, uh uh
You want her bedonk-a-donk, uh uh
Can't have this bedonk-a-donk, uh uh
Not when you talk to a woman like that
He wants my bedonk-a-donk, uh uh
You want her bedonk-a-donk, uh uh
Can't have this bedonk-a-donk, uh uh
Not when you talk to a woman like that

Did you learn that from yo mama?
Did she teach you to holler like that?
I won't talk about yo mama if you won't talk about my -
you won't talk about my -
you won't talk about my -
you won't talk about my ass
Track Name: Blue
Blue is the color of your name,
written on the page at the bottom of your letter
And blue is the color of the stage lights
where we played that night, when I should have known better

And red is the color of your heart before you got in all this trouble with me
Sometimes I can see in the dark and then I'm blind in the morning

Blue is the color of your jokes
You tell em so well and I laugh so hard
And blue is the color of the songs we made
and the records we played, yeah we played em all night long

And red is the color of your heart before you got in all this trouble with me
Sometimes I can see in the dark and then I'm blind in the morning

I'd rather argue with you than miss you for another day
oh sometimes I can see in the dark and then I'm blind in the morning
just gotta have it my way

Well blue is the color of this mess
and the color of the dress I wore for you
Track Name: Bitter Lemon
You can pick me up in your car, drive us to the parking lot
I know you've got a lot of errands to do
and I'll be your little tart for the afternoon

You don't have to be my boyfriend
I know you'd like to get married to a woman who knows you better than me
but for now I'm your baby

And you'll be my bitter lemon and I'll be your honey

You can call me little girl and I'll call you Daddy
and you can put me over your knee
and do, you can do as you please

And you'll be my bitter lemon and I'll be your honey
I'll be your honey
I'll be your honey
I'll be sweet like your honey
your honey
your honey
Track Name: Criminal Thing
It's a criminal thing, what you're doing to me
I've got to keep another man around just so I don't lose my head over you
I've been waiting, maybe not so patiently
But after five long years I don't wanna spend another night alone

So I call you on the phone
Say do that thing to me
Oh baby can't you see

Oooooooo I only ever wanted one man to love
Oooooooo I can never get enough
Oooooooo I don't wanna tear my hear out over
Youuuuuuu
So baby help me keep my cool
Ohhhhh

It's a criminal thing, what you done to me
I can't get enough of your attention
but you kiss me so sweet it's criminal
what you done to me
I'm all kinds of red-handed with this other man
Someone, quickly, call the OPD and tell 'em

He's doing that thing to me
doing that thing to me that makes me go oh, oh, oh, oh

Oooooooo I only ever wanted one man to love
Oooooooo I can never get enough
Oooooooo I don't wanna tear my hear out over
Youuuuuuu
So baby help me keep my cool
Ohhhhh

Doin that thing to me
Doin that thing to me
Doin that thing to me that makes me go oh, oh, oh, oh

Oooooooo I only ever wanted one man to love
Oooooooo I can never get enough
Oooooooo I don't wanna tear my hear out over
Youuuuuuu
So baby help me keep my cool
Ohhhhh
Track Name: Your Number (feat. Pete Feliciano)
You only come around after midnight
We've been sleeping in the daylight
Take off my shoes, I hold your head
And then I carry you to bed

I got your number
I think you got my number
but we don't call it out cause we're in a deep slumber
and we like the dream

You do something to my body
Ooohh I'm feeling kinda naughty
Hello, hello
Do it again

I got your number
I think you got my number
but we don't call it out cause we're in a deep slumber
and we like the dream

Do you want me for real, do you want me?
Could you love me for real, now do you love me?
Do you want me for real do you want me?
Could you love me for real?
Do you want me for real, do you want me?
Could you love me for real, now do you love me?
Do you want me for real do you want me?
Could you love me for real?

I got your number
I think you got my number
but we don't call it out cause we're in a deep slumber
and we like the dream

I got your number and I know you're no good....
Track Name: On a Good Day
He works every day at the bar, by the window
Blows out the candle, blows out the candle
And the old Church folks pass me on the sidewalk
And on a good day I'll even remember their names

Well I talk to the tatted up punks in the cheese shop
And on a good day I'll even remember their names

Afternoon, he picks me up on my block
Another day, another man, another date
And we walk around the lake
And on a good day I'll even remember his name
