Track Name: Shellfish
SHELLFISH (Walsh)

Girlfriend over here
Girlfriend over there
Girlfriend in the middle
Girlfriend in my hair

CHORUS
I'm in love with you
And I'll do anything except give up who I am
I know I'll be true
True to myself because I am a shellfish

Girlfriend is a mystery
Girlfriend is a gas
Girlfriend is a symphony
I feel so much I feel like

CHORUS

BRIDGE
We go for a bike ride
We go to the sea take a walk in the sand

Girlfriend in my phone book
Girlfriend in my house
Girlfriend on my arm
Girlfriend on my Christmas list

CHORUS
CHORUS
Track Name: Pop Me Like A Bubble
POP ME LIKE A BUBBLE (Rothenberg/Walsh)

These days I've got love on my mind
Sweet darling love's so easy to find
Then you cry turn your face and you pop me like a bubble
All I want is me next to you

My friends are so cynical
They think love is so uncool
Then you laugh in my face and you pop me like a bubble
All I want is me next to you

These days love's been flying around
Sweet darling don't bring me down
Then you wink walk away and you pop me like a bubble
All I want is me next to you

Then you stop and you stay and you pop me like a bubble
All I want is me next to you
Track Name: Romeo And Juliet
ROMEO AND JULIET (Walsh)

I love you and you love me
That’s the way we’ll always be
I don’t care what people say
I will love you anyway

Romeo and Juliet
Had a chance the night we met
I’m so happy I could cry
Miss you when we say goodbye

Chasing you from year to year
Breaking hearts ‘till you appear
Lovers come and lovers go
You’re the one I want to know

Romeo and Juliet
Had to take what they could get
I’m so happy I could cry
Miss you when we say goodbye

I’m a big romantic heart
Cut in half when we’re apart
I love you and that is all
Strong enough to take the fall

Romeo and Juliet
Had a life of no regrets
I’m so happy I could cry
Miss you when we say goodbye
Track Name: She Liked Little Boys
SHE LIKED LITTLE BOYS (Rothenberg/Walsh)

Pick me up
Put me down
Rocking horse
Circus clown
When I closed my eyes
She would run and hide
All her men were toys
She liked little boys

On the shelf
In the dark
Holding hands
In the park
When I closed my eyes
She would run and hide
All her men were toys
She liked little boys

I tried my best to make her love me
But all she did was make me cry

When I closed my eyes
She would run and hide
All her men were toys
She liked little boys

Waiting for
Another day
And the games
She would play

When I closed my eyes
She would run and hide
All her men were toys
She liked little boys

All her men were toys
She liked little boys
Track Name: Suzanne Got A Hoolahoop
SUZANNE GOT A HOOLAHOOP (Rothenberg/Walsh)

CHORUS
Suzanne got a hoolahoop
Suzanne got a hoolahoop
Suzanne got a hoolahoop
Don't you want to try?

Suzanne has a yellow ball
Likes to throw it down the hall
Watch it hit the purple wall
Just to see the colors fall

CHORUS

Suzanne has an aeroplane
Crashes through the window pane
Lands it in a cloud of rain
Just to drive her mom insane

CHORUS

Suzanne has little home home
Likes to stay there al alone
With her cat and dog and bone
And reruns of the Twilight Zone
Track Name: Sweet Marie (Apple Tree)
SWEET MARIE (APPLE TREE) (Rothenberg/A.Walsh/N.Walsh)

Sweet Marie Apple Tree
I can see what you do to me

Sweet Marie Apple Tree
I don't need your apology

Sweet Marie Apple Tree
Innocent like we used to be
Track Name: So Romantic
SO ROMANTIC (Walsh)

She was twenty four
Going on twenty five
She said she wanted babies and a house in Berkeley Hills
With fifty thousand dollars to start

She said she wanted Romance
I did too
I had ninety seven cents to my name in my pocket
I was feeling like a bum she was looking for a prince

Then she talked about her dad
And the fat from her babies
That she didn't want that's why
She'll only have two

She said my hair looked like her brothers
Then she asked me to be her valentine
I asked her if she had a car
Then we shook hands
And it was SO RO - MANTIC La la la la la...
Track Name: Sex Is Good
SEX IS GOOD (Walsh)

CHORUS
Sex is good sex is good
Sex is good sex is good
Sex is good sex is good
Sex is good sex is good

Two little lovers sitting in a tree
K-I-S-S-I-N-G
First comes love then comes marriage
You and me and a baby carriage

CHORUS

Life and death and catch your breath
Run to the clinic and take your test
Different strokes different folks
Where were you when the condom broke?

Do you really love me?
Yes I really love you
Are you gonna miss me when I die
Don’t make me cry

Yeah, oh yeah, I'm gonna love you gonna love you

CHORUS

Birds and birds and bees and bees
Birds and bees and you and me
Getting down in the trees
Any old way we please

CHORUS
Track Name: Joanne's Eyes
JOANNE’S EYES (Walsh)

Joanne’s Eyes got sparks in the middle
Tell you what they’re for
When I’m walking she sees me coming
She’s got an open door
Down the hall and into the kitchen
She’s got me hypnotized
Joanne loves me more than a little
With her pretty eyes

Joanne’s Eyes got signs in the window
Tell you what they’re for
When she’s laughing smiling and singing
She’s like a candy store
Super sweet and brown as chocolate
All the babies get a big surprise
When I’m hungry she feeds me candy
From her pretty eyes

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

Joanne’s Eyes got lines in the corners
She’s got a line that goes straight to her heart
That’s where she takes me when I’m looking
Into her pretty eyes
That’s where she takes me when I’m looking
Into her pretty eyes
Track Name: Serpents
SERPENTS (Walsh)

I can tell when it's a lie
I see Serpents in your eyes

And I won't pretend anymore
Save your lullaby I
Can tell when it's a lie

Parachutes I don't have
In my memory
You say things that make me cry
I see Serpents in your eyes

And I won't forget what you said
Falling from the sky I
Catch you in a lie

Is it love or is it lust
These are things that I don't trust
Evidence I can't deny
I see Serpents in your eyes

I can tell when it's a lie
I see Serpents in your eyes
Track Name: Golden Rock Girl
GOLDEN ROCK GIRL (Rothenberg/Walsh)

Golden Rock Girl
Golden Rock Girl
Cracked up in an orbit of Arabian Nights
Well you think it's all over but you turn it around
And get it right

Golden Rock Girl
Golden Rock Girl
Slipping through a hole in your daddy's shoe
Well you say you're not lonely but you turn it around
When I look at you

CHORUS
She said yeah yeah yeah
I fly across the sun
I can talk about illusion I can check you out

Golden Rock Girl
Golden Rock Girl
Golden Rock Girl I believe in you
Well you say it ain't nothing but you turn it around
And say it's nothing new

CHORUS

I believe I believe...
Track Name: Liquid Feeling
LIQUID FEELING (Rothenberg/Walsh)

We were traveling beneath an eastern moon
Spent the night together in a paper room
Woke up in the morning the host was at the door
With honeysuckle tea he place upon the floor

CHORUS
Tell me what you see
What's behind the glow
Is it you or me or something I should know
I would like to tell her exactly how I feel
When she looks at me I get this Liquid Feeling

We were traveling on an eastern shore
Spent the night together woke up on the floor
She was there beside me smiling tenderly
Making me an offer of honeysuckle tea

CHORUS

CHORUS
Track Name: She's Making Waves
SHE'S MAKING WAVES (Walsh)

My love is shining with fire tonight
Weaving a story she plays with the light
She's making waves all over me
She's making waves all over me

My love is hungry for conversation
Out of her mouth falls a babbling brook
She's making waves all over me
She's making waves all over me

Sometimes she makes me laugh
Sometimes she laughs at me
Sometimes I feel like I ain't going nowhere
Sometimes I feel set free

My love is swaying in the breeze
As lazy as summer as long as I please
She's making waves all over me
She's making waves all over me

She's making waves all over me
She's making waves all over me
