Track Name: Bye Bye Mon Cheri
down to the bottom
and still goin down
"there's got to be an exit"
she says, "i think i'll look around."
"next stop! next stop!"
sings the conductor of the train,
as she looks inside her pocket mirror
i'll never see you again

bye bye bye
bye bye mon cheri

they were always fighting
and the neighbors always heard them
something in her eyesight
she says her vision wasn't perfect
"how can you say such a thing
and pass it off so lightly
when you left the window open wide
and closed the blinds so tightly?"
i'll never see you again

bye bye bye
bye bye mon cheri

"mon cheri" means my darling
"bye bye" means i'm goin away forever

bye bye bye
bye bye mon cheri

Track Name: Heaven Only Knows
heaven only knows
why i love you so

a pig in a poke
that's what i thought
until i found i could not let you go (i could never let you go)

what would my friends think?
how could i sink
to this losing myself on a guy?
how could i get so
x-cited?
so positively
x-rated?
how could i get so
x-cited over

heaven only knows

heaven only knows
why i love you so

why?
why do i love you?
heaven only knows
why i love you so

Track Name: Valentine
ring ring on the telephone
you don't answer cuz you're not at home
i drove by and the lights were on
so i ring ring on the telephone
could it be
that you're not alone
or are you out with another
girl you fell in love with
just last night
after we had that fight
oh
valentine
why do we have to spend the night apart?
valentine
without you i am only half a heart
valentine

last night at the restaurant
we had a fight over i don't know what
and i walked out just to get you mad
didn't look back and now i wish i had
can't you forgive me
and answer the phone
or are you out with another
girl you fell in love with
just last night
after we had that fight
oh
valentine
why do we have to spend the night apart?
valentine
without you i am only half a heart
i'm violently yours, valentine

valentine
pick up your lonely telephone
and valentine
don't make me spend my love alone without you
valentine
why do we have to spend the night apart?
valentine
without you i am only half a heart
valentine
i want to hit you kiss you
valentine
i must be violently in love with you
i'm violently yours, valentine

oh valentine
won't you be mine?

there goes the boy i love
there goes the boy i been dreamin of
he's the one with the long hair
he's the one who takes me there

(he's the boy)
he's the boy i'm waiting for
(he's the boy)

every night i tell my pillow
how much i need to let him know
every day i hug the shadow
watch him come i watch him go

there he goes
and i wonder
if he knows

he's the boy that i adore
(he's the boy)
he's the boy i'm waiting for
(he's the boy)

there goes the boy i love

hey girls, there goes the boy i love
(he's the boy)
there goes the boy i been dreamin of
(he's the boy)

Track Name: Do Ya
(adeste fideles, laeti triumphantes)

someone said look
before you leap
but i fell
right at your feet
someone said think
before you speak
but i had to tell you
i had to tell you
had to tell you how i feel

someone said look
before you leap
but i fell
i fell right at your feet
think
i couldn't think
i had to shout it out
i made it public
everyone knows how i feel

do ya like me?
do ya like me?
do ya?
do ya?
do ya feel good?
feel good beside me?

do ya like me?
do ya like me?

Track Name: Sex and Violence
all i wanna do
is dance until I'm dizzy
beat my feet and twist my vision
sex and violence
sex and violence
will do

too much minor harmony
too much teenage self-pity
never wrote the song
i could listen to for long
but
sex and violence
good ol' sex and violence
will do

if i can't have you
sex and violence will do

maybe you think it's pretty
for women to come and go
talk about their losses and
Michelangelo
cuz babies and men i've lost
but no one wants to hear
the tenderness of tragedy
trickle in their ear

if i can't have you
sex and violence will do

if i can't have you
sex and violence will do

(wanna go sit down on some dumb guy's lap
oo creme all over his coat and hat
scratch his neck and kiss his eye
never see that guy again)

Track Name: No No No No No No You
how long? how long
can a girl exist
without it?
how long? how long
can she listen to her friends
talkin' about it?
when she is without it?

every night she goes down to the taproom
she gets all dressed up, she puts those braids in her hair
and then every night she just sits on a barstool
cuz there's no one there who dances like you do
laughs the way you do
makes love like you do

no no no no no no no no no you
no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to touch me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you

every night she rides home in a taxi
and she pays the fare and gets out her keys
she unlocks the door to her single apartment
once she's safe inside she gets down on her knees

no no no no no no no no no you
no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to hold me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you

every playground is a desert
every love song is a lesson
like a toy rusted in the rain
nowhere is the boy who can make me new again

no no no no no no no no no you
no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to want me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you
want some boy to love me the way you used to
but there's no no no no no no no no no you
