GOING TO THE BAR i came by and you had no time to say hi but at least i tried now i'm going to the bar for a drink or two now i'm going to the bar without you i called on Fred Fred, with the big round head his eyes and his nose were red he could not leave his bed i found your boyfriend somewhere the one with the curly blond hair he didn't seem to care oh, but he's so square i found myself alone just a little bit too far from home my heart heavy as a stone and useless as an ice cream cone

Success 02:34
SUCCESS it's a success, it is look at the mess it is who would have guessed it would be such a success? you gamble, you win every time the wheels spin every time it only takes a minute to test your limit i thought i was tired, i did hired and fired, i did but look at me now i can't figure out how we'll sit around and smoke all night drinking whiskey and coke all night there's nothing else i wanna do but be here with you i love you, i do it's true i do let's cheer to our success and go home, yes?

I'm the boss 02:41
I'M THE BOSS - i'm the boss here - who's the boss here? - i am - can't stand this song there's something terribly wrong every single line i hear is a pain in my ear - well, you don't have to like it and i don't have to take shit from you, or anyone else the door is there: suit yourself go clean the dishes but not too well go place the dishes up there on the shelf whatever my wish is i'm the chef - well then you know where the kitchen is so suit yourself - here is one more whiskey come and sit with me i haven't heard from the man but he knows where i am - now who's the pushover? - who's still sober? well, i wasn't born yesterday i drink korn, korn all the way - i like to wear shoes that glow and i like to watch the booze flow i'm not trying to get even, Steven i told you i was leavin' but the booze keeps flowing and my shoes keep glowing swimmin' or rowin' i've got to get a-goin'

Milestone 03:38
MILESTONE i don't wanna cry in public i want my shower and my bed take one last drag, and stub it i want a pillow and a hand under my head you're the milestone on my road my sword and my shield you're a handful, you know you're plenty, you're a shitload you are all that i need i'll tell it to you in music melancholy, in G straight from the heart, no bullshit the way it ought to be you've gotta take the good and the bad the wrong and the right think of the awesome time we've had think about it when you're dreaming tonight
