Track Name: Give Us Money (We Are Pretty)
Standing in the station
Holding up placards
Making introductions

Bored and beautiful
No need for small talk
Just follow the instructions

Keeping it simple
Six little words
Don’t need no conjunctions

They got the looks
They got the taffeta
They got the gumption

BRIDGE

Pretty people got all the money
Yr just holding it until they need it
So you might as well hand it over
What’s the matter buddy, can’t you read?

CHORUS

Give us money, we are pretty x 4

Is it the First World?
Is it the Third World?
Is it a prank?

Is it performance art?
Is it political?
Is it something you drank?

It doesn’t matter
Just give them something
They can put in the bank

Simple transaction
Just hand them yr cash
They won’t even say thanks

BRIDGE

Album cover waiting to happen
Real or fake, it’s nothing new
If you want the pretty, you gotta pay
and that says less about them than it does about you

CHORUS

Give us money, we are pretty x 8

Truth is beauty
Beauty is power
Power is truth

Up in yr face
Like twin soothsayers
Saying the sooth

Beauty adds value
In a society
Obsessed with youth

They know the deal
And they got yr money
So there goes yr proof

BRIDGE

Album cover waiting to happen
It’s just the truth fresh-frozen for two
They hold the cards and they hold the power
How much you give them is up to you

CHORUS

Give us money, we are pretty x 12
Track Name: Nobody's Perfect (And Neither Are You)
He’s too skinny, She’s too fat
Look at the losers, Looking like that
That’s too small, That’s too big
You can’t win, The game is rigged

Everyone says that looks don’t matter
But we insult each other when we start getting fatter
Throwing other people’s feelings under the bus
Just in case they try to do it to us

BRIDGE

Nobody’s perfect and neither are you
We could change it right now and we know what to do
But we’re too afraid of what the neighbors will think
To break the chain and rewrite the link

CHORUS

We hate ourselves, That’s a fact
Don’t know what we’re missing, But we want it back
Can’t live with the fact that we don't look like that
So all we do is hold each other back

VERSE

Selling ourselves and each other short
I’ll see you in hell or I’ll see you in court
Tearing down people less perfect than you
To bump yr own ego up a notch or two

We keep falling for the same old traps
That we set for ourselves and dropped in our own laps
Reinforcing standards we can never attain
Unless yr loaded, lucky or have no shame

BRIDGE

Nobody’s perfect and neither are you
We could change it right now and we know what to do
But we’re too afraid of what the neighbors will think
To break the chain and rewrite the link

CHORUS

We hate ourselves, That’s a fact
Don’t know what we’re missing, But we want it back
Can’t live with the fact that we don't look like that
So all we do is hold each other back

VERSE

Too skinny too fat too bad
It could have been the best thing you ever had
We've lost the plot, we’re off the rails
We’ve bottled our vanity and put it on sale

Would you rather be lonely than settle for less
When less is really more – but I digress
Beauty sex and love is right where you find it
Conformity’s the barrier, don’t hide behind it

BRIDGE

Nobody’s perfect and neither are you
We could change it right now and we know what to do
But we’re too afraid of what the neighbors will think
To break the chain and rewrite the link

CHORUS

We hate ourselves, That’s a fact
Don’t know what we’re missing, But we want it back
Can’t live with the fact that we don't look like that
So all we do is hold each other back
Track Name: Who Moved My Cheese?
Who moved my cheese? It was right here a minute ago
I know, because that’s where I always keep it
Now it’s over there and now I gotta move it back
What’s the point of cheese if someone’s just gonna move it?

BRIDGE
Oooooooooohhhh oooohh! Never move another man’s cheese
Oooooooooohhhh oooohh! Never move another man’s cheese

Who moved my cheese? Does it matter? Yes it does!
Was it her? Was it him? Was it you? Was it them?
Used to be a time when people left yr cheese alone
HEY! While I was singing that, somebody went and moved it again

BRIDGE
Oooooooooohhhh oooohh! Never move another man’s cheese
Oooooooooohhhh oooohh! Never move another man’s cheese

CHORUS
I want cheese! (You can’t have it cos it’s gone)
Where did it go? (I dunno! I dunno!)
Bring me my cheese! (Put it back where you found it)
This ain’t no science project
Cheese isn’t just an object
Are we men or are we mice?
Moving cheese just isn’t very nice!

[BREAK]

Who moved my cheese? This is really inconvenient
Stupid cheese movers! Man, there oughta be a law!
How would you like it if I came to yr place
and moved yr cheese around? YEAH! That’s what I thought...

BRIDGE
Oooooooooohhhh oooohh! Never move another man’s cheese
Oooooooooohhhh oooohh! Never move another man’s cheese

[CHORUS]:
I want cheese! (You can’t have it cos it’s gone)
Where did it go? (I dunno! I dunno!)
Bring me my cheese! (Put it back where you found it)
This ain’t no science project
Cheese isn’t just an object
Are we men or are we mice?
Moving cheese just isn’t nice!

You know what you are? Yr a cheese mover, baby!
You know what you are? Yr a cheese mover, baby!
You know what you are? Yr a cheese mover, baby!
Never move another man’s cheese!
Track Name: Screaming Memes
Memes are bullshit
Memes are propaganda
Memes don’t tell the truth
Don’t pass them on

I do not care
What party you vote for
If you forward memes
Then I’m talking to you

Memes are created
To intentionally mislead you
They’re not educational
They just make you stupid

Don't assume they're true
Just because you believe them
If you believe them
Yr a gullible idjit

Memes are bullshit
Memes are propaganda
Memes don’t tell the truth
Don’t pass them on

You probably think
That this song ain’t about you
If you forward memes
Then I’m talking to you

Those memes you keep posting
They’re chock full of nonsense
Or exaggerations
Or misleading statements

And if you repost them
Without fact-checking them
Yr just participating
In yr own manipulation

Memes are bullshit
Memes are propaganda
Memes don’t tell the truth
Don’t pass them on

BREAK

Memes are bullshit
Memes are propaganda
Memes don’t tell the truth
Don’t pass them on

Oh what’s the use
Yr not even listening
I know yr not listening
Because you keep on reposting them

Because it’s easier than thinking
Or doing the research
Anyone can do it
Even your cat

Memes are bullshit
Memes are propaganda
Memes don’t tell the truth
Don’t pass them on

Memes are bullshit
Memes are propaganda
Memes don’t tell the truth
Don’t pass them on
Track Name: Do The Govt Wonk
INTRO

He spent 20 minutes on the first slide
He spent 20 minutes on the second slide
He spent 20 minutes on the third slide
20 more slides to go!

Oh no!

VERSE 1
Give him one minute, he’ll take twenty
Hope you got the time cos he’s got plenty
He can talk for hours, not say a damn thing
Is anybody here still listening?

BRIDGE
On and on and on he goes
Where he’ll stop nobody knows
Take it easy, make it hard
Dump it all in someone else’s backyard

VERSE 2
He takes his time, he’s a rambling man
He’s got PowerPoint and a 30-point plan
New adventures in minutiae
He could go on like this all day

BRIDGE
On and on and on he goes
Where he’ll stop nobody knows
It happened here and we all know why
This is the best govt money can buy

CHORUS
Do the Govt Wonk
It’s a ministerial sensation
Do the Govt Wonk
Gridlocking the entire nation

BREAK

VERSE 3
He’ll bring yr committee to a grinding halt
If you get bored it’s yr own damn fault
Never met a problem he couldn’t complicate
He’ll get right on it but you gotta wait

BRIDGE
On and on and on he goes
Where he’ll stop nobody knows
This is not an anti-govt song
But it’s easy to see yr doing it wrong

CHORUS
Do the Govt Wonk
If you can’t do it you can always fake it
Do the Govt Wonk
With yr mouth wide open and yr eyes all vacant

Do the Govt Wonk
Laying down the policy in monotone
Do the Govt Wonk
Just keep talking ‘til they leave you alone

Do the Govt Wonk x 8
Track Name: Gimme The Straight Talk
Gimme the straight talk
Gimme the straight talk

Don't want no metaphors

Gimme the straight talk
Gimme the straight talk

Don't want no flimflam
Don't want no flibbertyjib

And yr second-hand observation

Gimme the straight talk
Gimme the straight talk

Don't want no claptrap

Cos it doesn’t fit my reality
I’m certain of what’s in front of me
Everything else is hyperbole

Gimme the straight talk
Gimme the straight talk

BREAK

Gimme the straight talk

Don't want no mumbo jumbo
Don't want no fiddle-faddle

I don’t have to sit here and listen
To your biased subjectivity

Gimme the straight talk
Gimme the straight talk

OUTRO

Don't want no jive
Don’t want no fancy patter
Don't want no balderdash

Don't want no jabber

Don't want no runaround

Don't want no hogwash
Don't want no hooey
Don't want no gibberish
Don't want no gobbledygook

Gimme the straight talk
Gimme the straight talk
Track Name: Let It Suck
When you have a bad day
Or someone makes you mad
You say this really sucks
But why is that so bad

If someone goes down on you
It makes you really happy
Why do you compare it
To a thing that’s really crappy

BRIDGE
So let’s flip it on its head
Make somebody’s day
Accentuate the positive
Join me when I say:

CHORUS
It sucks and I’m happy
It sucks and that’s okay
It sucks and I don’t mind at all
Have a sucky day!
Sucking is a good thing
With the proper attitude
It’s a new philosophy
To suck is always good!
