Track Name: Vancouver Grizzly
Verse 1:

Oh can you see the sun from behind the clouds? I've seen you modern girls, you got it figured out, you know just what to wear you know just what to say to keep me by your side and keep your boyfriend at bay (wait!)

Chorus:
I just really wanna be a grizzly bear with salmon in his paw
Blame it on the way I was raised or the place I was born

Verse 2:

Oh Can you see the sky when you look up? I know that you get high but do you get fucked up? I'm on a vision quest I'm on another test. They say "chief you got a long way to go". No I don't.

Chorus:

I just really wanna be a grizzly bear with salmon in his paw
Blame it on the way I was raised or the place I was born

Bridge:


Oh can you see the sun from behind the clouds? I've seen you modern girls, you got it figured out, you know just what to wear you know just what to say to keep me by your side and keep your boyfriend at bay (wait!)

End:
I'll eat you alive 'cause I'm a Vancouver grizzly
I'll eat you alive 'cause I was born in the city.
Track Name: Margaret
intro:

Stop the boys they're reading james joyce they stole the rolls royce those girls looked poisoned.

Verse 1:
I'd do the same / But I don't recommend it.
I Knew her name / But I had to jump fences
They say she's a skank / Yeah well that's the consensus
If patience were priceless / She managed to spend it.

Chorus:

Margaret was target practice you actors can go fuck a cactus
Margaret was target practice you actors can go fuck a cactus in your leather jackets.

Verse 2:

Detox is good / But botox is better
Under the knife / She went under the weather
Ya say its not happening / But never say never
Her bedpost's a toothpick / You still couldn't get her

Chorus:

Margaret was target practice you actors can go fuck a cactus
Margaret was target practice you actors can go fuck a cactus in your leather jackets

Bridge:

Stop the boys they're reading james joyce they stole the rolls royce those girls looked poisoned.
Oh well the bullet on the shelf speeds up to tell you that you were a testdrive
Stop stop stop stop stop stop, and fill me with lead (C'mon Margaret...)

Chorus:

Margaret was target practice you actors can go fuck a cactus
Margaret was target practice you actors can go fuck a cactus. You're all fucking fascists
Track Name: Sharkweek
Verse 1:

With a deathgrip on my tommy gun and the last sip of the whiskey's done you better make it a double it's gonna be a long night.
Met the devil in a poker game and his cheeks flushed on the royal flame you better make it a double it's gonna be a long night.

Chorus:

So you say you love me but you're just a guppy and I am a great white

Verse 2:

Well she kissed me and her lips went numb she insisted I bit her tongue the girlie's trouble and its gonna be a long night.
Sh-sh-shaken In my high tops and she caved in but she never stopped the girlie's trouble and its gonna be a long night.

Chorus:

So you wanna fuck me but you're just a guppy and I am a great white

Bridge:

With Red and white swirls on the peppermint (With Red and white swirls on the peppermint)
The whole world's seen your fingerprints.

End:

With a deathgrip on my tommy gun and the last sip of the whiskey's done you better make it a double it's gonna be a long night.
Track Name: Monarch Butterfly
Chrous:

I'll be a monarch butterfly I'll be king among the moths
Can I be your favourite concubine? And I'll turn tricks if I get lost.

Verse 1:

Your broken english makes me horny
your perfect spanish makes me weak I'm such a creep
And if i lived in New York City
I'd fall in love once a week I'm yours to keep

Chorus:

I'll be a monarch butterfly I'll be king among the moths
Can I be your favourite concubine? And I'll turn tricks if I get lost.

Verse 2:

You can make a decent living
doing anything you hate and them's the breaks
And If I die before my wedding
get someone else to cut the cake 'cause I'm too fake

Bridge:

I'm alive now thank you oliver
I'm alright now because of her
I'm in her hive now she's at the top of the stairs
I've arrived now and I'm not gonna share no

End:

No I won't like a monarch butterfly
Like your favourite concubine I'm king.

Verse 1:
Stay gold stay free stay far away from me. I know you you just want to break my heart and my fingers.
Think fast, drink up she says "you're making me blush". She'll turn red, her curves will turn heads and she'll feel my heart with her fingers.

Chorus:
Friday the thirteenth is still a friday afterall. I'll be there with bells on. I'll be there with bells on.
And all the superstition that'd usually drive me up the wall. I'll be there with bells on. I'll be there with bells on.

Verse 2:

Stay gold stay free stay far away from me. I know you you just want to break my heart and my fingers.
She sunbathes for days and says "it's never a waste". She's beautiful now but she was beautiful before her tan

Chorus:
Friday the thirteenth is still a friday afterall. I'll be there with bells on. I'll be there with bells on.
And all the superstition that'd usually drive me up the wall. I'll be there with bells on. I'll be there with bells on.

Verse 3:
Stay gold stay free stay far away from me. I know you you just want to break my heart and my fingers.
