Track Name: Be Yourself
You can learn a lot about a person
Just by asking simple questions
Show an interest
Look them in the eye
Use their name in a sentence
"Hi Roger, It's good to learn about you"
Would be one way to start a conversation
Don't be nervous if they don't answer you directly
Or if they use a knife on you to push you away

Be yourself
You can't be anyone else
Always be yourself
You can't be anyone else

Express yourself with idioms and phrases
If you're double-jointed, show other people at a party
Smile at babies
Call children by their middle names
Be respectful of your elders
And of all antlered animals

It's important to wear clean clothes
Keep foodstains to a minimum
Take all the weasels out of your pockets
Iron your shirts
Wear cotton or fine linen
Velour tracksuits are always attractive
Zippers and buttons can be tricky
Ask for the assistance of others when in doubt

Be yourself
Don't be anyone else
Always be yourself
Can't be anything else

U R U
I M ME
U R NOT ME
I M NOT what you think I am

Be yourself
Don't be anyone else
Just be yourself
You can't be anything else

You gave me a self-addressed stamped envelope long ago
But I lost it
In this crazy world of email and text
I don't even know what a letter looks like
Could I send it express mail?
Could I just put it in the mail without an address?
Would the postmaster know to give it to you
Just by the look on your face?

But you're a you
And I'm a me
And they're a them
And we're a we

Be yourself
Not anyone else
Be yourself
You can't be anyone else

Never abuse prescription drugs
Or prescription glasses
Eat three square meals a day on round plates
Alphabetize your dishes
State that your favorite shade of gray is purple
Give away all your pens and pencils to the poor
Recognize that mangoes are a superior fruit
Enjoy the sweet smell of complacency
Set aside moments for reflection, meditation, and revenge

Be yourself
Don't be anyone else
Just be yourself
'Cause you're not anyone else

Do do do do do do do do do do
Track Name: Putty Time
i look at the mirror
and the mirror looks at me
what is it I see?
putty!

a dance for you
and all your hip friends too
good-looking and strong
putty!

go to party or go to the sport
you can dance with the putty of course
doing new wave and hiphop too

you have the super rad fantastical sound
all the children all around
dancing in the street to the funky funky beat
feeling the flow everywhere you go

getting down with putty now
funky-zeit you know how
it's like a pie grab your piece
you can have it at least
every day every night
when you eat you'll feel alright
in your tummy feeling full
i know how these things will roll
yeah

it's putty
you can feel it all the time

little babies are 100% putty
12% of americans chew gum
10% of weekend warriors are putty
95% of all people understand putty
12% of you are shoes
11% of you are handbags
12.9% and falling
take great pains to make mistakes
over and over and over again
let us be your mistakes for you
we are putty
we're here to do your laundry
we're here to pack your bags
any menial chores
we've already finished them
now enjoy putty! putty!

the wind blowing through your hair
you can grab it
if you do you will not have a care in the world
where the people are dancing to the fastest car
they will advertise the putty on the sides
like a cybernet sevice
that will fix your computer for $9.95
in-house calls that's what we do
because we're putty
and we're coming for you
Track Name: Superhero
Superhero
You'll always be my superhero
Superhero
My one and only superhero

Superhero
I figured out your true identity
Superhero
Don't worry 'cause your secrect's safe with me

Stronger than steel and tough as granite
Your sidekick's from another planet
Sworn to save the human race
From the screaming hordes of outer space

Superhero
There'll never be another hero quite like you
Superhero
You always leave the bad guys black and blue

You won that fight without a scrape
Their bullets bounced off your kevlar cape
Defeating all the enemies
Of freedom truth and liberty

You're the victim of experiments
By the Department of Defense
You've got bones of titanium
And a diamond-studded cranium

Your X-ray eyes see right through me
Your brainwaves send your love right to me
Fly through the sky at the speed of light
Right back home to me at night.

Superhero
You'll always be my superhero
Superhero
You're my hero yeah
Superhero
You'll always be my superhero
My one and only superhero
