Track Name: Circus Time
Hooray the circus has come to town
spin the unicycling wheel for the juggling clown

Circus time
step in line

Watch the seals twirl their ball around
their noses keep them spinning high above the ground

Circus time
step in line

See the tires on the clown car as they leave the show
One big putt putt off they go

Circus time
step in line
Track Name: Worst Song Ever
This is the worst song you'll ever hear
It'll make you want to chop off your ear
This song sounds like literal shit
I don't know why the fuck were playin it

WORST SONG EVER

This song, it sucks
It'll make you wish you got run over by a truck
This song sounds so bad when it's over you'll be glad

WORST SONG EVER
Track Name: Back to Iowa
It was a hot summer day as i stepped out of the van, my mother my father and my sister all holding hands. I had reese's pieces on my mind, but much to my dismay there were no reeses pieces to find. That's when I saw a man standing by the van motioning for me to come over then he took my by the hand and led me around back and told me "I've got reese's pieces by the stack." I asked him "where?" and he said "in there" and pointed to his truck. I climbed in and I heard the door shut and my heart skipped a beat as the engine started. Then we were driving and I asked "where are we going" and he said, he said

"WE'RE GOING BACK TO IOWA" (back to fucking Iowa)

We rode for 6 hours then we got to his house then he sat me down on his couch and he sat next to me and he turned on the tv and I felt safe. For the next 8 years we slowly fell in love because he was amazing. Sometimes I think back to that day when he took my life away, what did he say? I'll tell you, he said
"WE'RE GOING BACK TO IOWA"

Then one day as I sat at his house I heard a sound, it was so frightening. Then I looked out the window and saw red and blue lights flashing in my eyes, as bright as lightning. Then they busted down the door and they took my man away, where they have him I cannot say, but they took me back too, back to my family, back where I fucking hate it. Sometimes I'll get real sad and I'll see my dad and he'll say "whats wrong" and i'll get out my guitar and i'll sing him this song and i'll say

"I WANNA GO BACK TO IOWA"
Track Name: Pigeons
I woke up this morning and was frightened-
I had been given the power of flight and-
I was small and I was gray-
And the only thing I could say-
Was a high pitched bird sound-
And my eyes were small and round-
I sat there on that telephone wire and I-

Think it's great to be a bird
It's great to be a pigeon

Rat boy
That freaky little rat boy
He ain't got any rat joy
So he plays with his rat toys

I'm a pigeon
You're a pigeon
Were all pigeons
Track Name: A Bike Named Rocco
I had a bike named Rocco and he belonged to me
We believed if I pedaled fast enough we would skip across the sea

I had a bike named Rocco and he was my best friend
I never knew that once I grew up our friendship would be forced to end

I had a bike named Rocco and he could go so fast
I wish our time together was not so hastily passed

With him by my side I would never have to walk
Nobody knew he could talk

I had a bike named Rocco and he belonged to me
We believed if I pedaled fast enough we would skip across the sea

I had a bike named Rocco and we thought we could fly
He told me if we went fast enough we could touch the sky

With him by my side I would never walk
Nobody knew he could talk
Track Name: Marietta
Marietta you grabbed my heart
And with your cold bare hands you ripped it apart
Now I wanna know
Why'd you have to go?
I had a plan
But you ran off with another man
Marietta you left me all alone
Marietta I was gonna marry ya
Marrieta you were my one and only
Now you left me cold and lonely
And I need you back
But I know that it's not gonna happen
Marietta please explain it
Cause now my heart just feels like shit and I
Need to know why you left me
Out of sympathy please come back
Marietta you made me cry
Cause now you're out with another guy
Track Name: Anthem for the Ugly
Is your nose to big?
Are your eyes to small?
Do you wish you had no face at all?
Welcome to the club man,
You ain't gotta be skinny or perfect or tan
Just have some fun and get funky
This is the anthem for the ugly

Anthem for the UGLY

Do you need a shave?
Do you have some sag?
To put over your head do you need a paper bag?
Welcome to the club dude,
All you need is to be able to groove
and get funky
Cause this is the anthem for the ugly

Anthem for the UGLY

C'mon baby it don't matter if you're clumsy or lumpy or chubby or fuzzy or got a fat tummy cause this is the anthem for the ugly

Anthem for the UGLY
Track Name: Rubberman 35
He's the last page in the book-
That guy with the insane look-
He stands on the corner shouting "abstain"-
He's obviously in pain-
He's melting into the gutter-
He needs a lover

Rubberman 35-
Is he dead or is he alive?
Rubberman 35
Never had no reason to strive

You can see a troubled past-
And a troubled future approaching fast-
He calls you a sinner as you walk by-
But somewhere he knows that it's a lie-
He's melting into the gutter-
He needs a lover

Rubberman 35-
Is he dead or is he alive?
Rubberman 35
Never had no reason to strive
