Track Name: Aye Aye Sucka Sucka
aye aye sucka sucka, there goes Christmas
I got nothing great but I don't care
and when my applesauce begins to kill me
shoot the moon until the astronauts die in the carpet fire

I've got something in my back pocket
and it hurts like pasta
makes the cats go crazy
turn your fan on
shut the windows
cause the phone is ringing
sucka sucka aye aye
Track Name: Ray the Mover
Hi hello please pass the salt
it's locked behind the mirrored vault
and if you know the combination
please construct a resignation
and have it on my desk by four
and I will love you forever more
plus one day
and hey
I'll help ya do it

and I can't wake up
when both my eyes
are super glued shut

and ray the mover told me
that I cannot find you in this house
you moved across the street and now
your mailbox has an even number

and as I'm walking through the woods
I'm thinking of the things I could not
say to you and make you cry
stick a needle in my eye
and if it bleeds
call the cops
eighty seven lemon drops
taste fine to me
but I would not eat them

you can count on me
eight, nine
Tennessee

and Ray the mover told me
that I cannot find you in this house
you moved across the street and now
your mailbox has an even number

and all the hippos want to stay alone
so I can't call them friends
but if I had a cordless telephone
I'd run around the house and tell you
all the different rooms I was in

and ray the mover told me
that I cannot find you in this house
you moved across the street and now
your mailbox has an even number
and all the children on your block
are playing foresquare in the street
and I would join them if I could
but I've stuck inside this house all day
with Ray
and he's freaking me out.
Track Name: The Contents of Your Pocket
so you reach in your pocket and you pull out a note
and it says "hey man I think that you should get off the road"
and you look up and your standing on the freeway
and all the cars are honking their horns

so you reach in your pocket
and you pull out a car
and its the same car you drove twenty years ago
and you look down expecting a giant pocket
but instead you see you have no pants

but in the pack of the trunk
theres another pair of pants
and they just so happen to be your size
but as your pulling them on in the backseat of your car
a single tear drops from your eye

so you start up the engine
and you begin to sing
but you just can't remember the words
so you decide that what you need is silence
but that doesn't last for very long

so you reach in the glove box and you pull out a tape
and it looks just like it's blank
but you'll still give it a try
and on the first side, it's a man and he's singing
and you realize he must be from the moon

he sings "you can keep the car and you can keep the pants and you can keep this tape too
take these things for free to you from me
sincerely the man on the moon"
Track Name: Carpet Diem (Russel's Dream)
and it's hard to think
when the carpet stinks
cause you dropped all the meat
on the floor
and I'm going away
where the blue jays play
and I won't come back no more

and it's hard to think
when the carpet stinks
cause you dropped all the meat
on the ground
and I'm going away
where the blue jays play
and I won't be back in this town
and it's hard to drink
when your armpits stink
and the sink has been backed up for days
when the morning comes
I'll be gone
to a land so far away
Track Name: Onomatopoeia
dear kim I'm sorry about your zelda watch
my friends are lame and they have taken off
and I could sing and I could cough
but it won't change rearrange
and the things I feel

dear steve I'm sorry that I did not write a song
about you and I feel I've done you wrong
if you could wait it will not be too long
'fore I kiss the sky and make you cry again

and an onomatopoeia is a zip bang boom
let's move into the country or another room
I dig ya like a shovel and not a broom
an onomatopoeia is a zip bang boom

and there's a guy playing outside the store
and there's people sitting on my car
and I wonder how I could
get them off the top of my hood
maybe I should honk the horn

onomatopoeia (repeat)
Track Name: Talking to the Doctor After Pressing the Elevator Button that Grew on Your Forehead Overnight Causing Your Legs to Grow Uncontrollably
dcotor can you help me out I've been growing for over an hour
you see? three more feet
and I can't wait for long before you know it I'll become to tall to see
and I'll be in the clouds
and everyone will gather round

doctor what do I do I can barely see my shoes
my legs won't stop
people they won't understand
they'll think that I'm an evil plan to kill them all
sure that's just a guess
doc I'm in a giant mess

oh I can move to an island and can live alone
without a television or a telephone
but all I wanna do is just shrink back down to size

doctor please don't laugh
I'm taller than the male giraffe at the zoo
what do I do

"well son, it is my professional opinion that you should run for president"

president?
Track Name: Bathtub (Brushing My Teeth)
brushing my teeth in the bathtub (x3)
it all goes down the drain

well a one two three and a two four six
I like lucky charms and I like trix
thirteen eighteen thirty two too
we'll you like me and I like you
but it all goes down the drain

thats why I'm
brushing my teeth in the bathtub (x3)
it all goes down the drain

cooking breakfast with a briefcase
eating lunch with a shoelace
brushing my teeth in the bathtub
one more time again

thats why I'm
brushing my teeth in the bathtub (x3)
it all goes down the drain
Track Name: Saving Lincoln
and when I'm lonely I will build
a robot cousin made of engine parts
and he will play with me all day
and at night I will lock him in the closet down stairs

and when I'm tired I'll sleep and dream
of huge sandcastles floating in the air
and I'll awake as my robot shakes me
in the morning I don't know if I can take this for long

but I know it's in my heart
and if I were smart
I'd jump in my time machine
to eighteen sixty five and I'd keep alive
Abraham Lincoln
what were you thinkin
John Wilkes Booth

I've got your wallet
it's sitting shotgun in my car
and if you want it
we can meet today and make an exchange

and when I'm angry I will tell
my robot cousin
to jump off a bridge
and he will leap
and I will weep
if only I could take back some things I said

but I know it's in my heart
and if I were smart
I'd jump in my time machine
to eighteen sixty five and I'd keep alive
Abraham Lincoln
what was I thinkin
John Wilkes Booth
Track Name: 4-Legged Car
I've got a four legged car in my back yard
it won't get us too far cause it needs new shoes
and I'd like to be yours forever
four legs are better than two

and when the robots come for me we can ride it
around the corner down the street to the haunted house
we can make friends with the ghosts and they won't kick us out

I've got a four legged car in my driveway
it needs a couple new parts but it's still cool
and if we worked all day to fix it
tomorrow I can drive you to school

I can't explain the way I feel but I feel it
from the top of my head down to my shoes
my car runs on gas but I run on you

oh no my car is breakin
and your love is taken
now I can't even get around
I've got a four legged car and its broken down
I've got a four legged car and its broken down
Track Name: The Pencil Sharpener
who put this coffee in my pocket?
who put this coffee in my tea?
who put this dragon in the carpet?
who put this dragon under me?

there is nothing to say that hasn't been stated
there's nothing to do tonight
there's something to see if you only open your face
and overall the thing's a mystery
yes overall the world's a mystery

who put this coffee in my hair gel?
who put this rabbit in my suit?
who put this copy in my jumpsuit?
overall there's nothing to do
no nothing to do
Track Name: Giant Ear
there's a giant ear on my back
and I can hear all around me
so though your'e far away from here
I can hear you
I can hear you if you yell

I heard the milkman say
milk's not really that great for your bones
and I heard your neighbor say
he stole your umbrella
and I heard your teacher say
your paper deserved an A not an F
and I can hear you
I can hear you if you yell

cause there's a giant ear on my back
and I can hear all around me
so though you're far away from here
I can hear you
I can hear you if you yell

if you yell
