Backyard on second street I don't know the residents so let's stay nimble on our feet Cause if they call the police we're gonna have to hit the streets running down the alley way and hiding on the beach Cause the ocean just ain't good enough tonight ain't good enough tonight ain't good enough tonight When I go swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover but she's only seventeen so you can not tell her brother Keep it undercover or he's sure to start fight I got a ball bat everything will be alright When I'm swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover Better keep my baggies on don't want to make this girl a mother Tell her that I love her maybe she'll stay for a while Don't matter if I mean it she's so pretty when she Backyard where no one goes It can be our little secret honey no one has to know You are just a girl baby I am just punk Your brother's got a problem there's a pistol in my trunk Cause the ocean just ain't good enough tonight ain't good enough tonight ain't good enough tonight When I go swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover but she's only seventeen so you can not tell her brother Keep it undercover or he's sure to start fight I got a ball bat everything will be alright When I'm swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover Better keep my baggies on don't want to make this girl a mother Tell her that I love her maybe she'll stay for a while Don't matter if I mean it she's so pretty when she Deep end the lights come on But, before they pull the curtain baby we're already gone Let's keep this party moving Yeah we gotta keep it cool Over to another house and hop into another pool When I go swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover but she's only seventeen so you can not tell her brother Keep it undercover or he's sure to start fight I got a ball bat everything will be alright When I'm swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover Better keep my baggies on don't want to make this girl a mother Tell her that I love her maybe she'll stay for a while Don't matter if I mean it she's so pretty when she When the heat of the summer make you hot and lazy we rock the dance hall 'til it's going crazy Her brother steps up, but it doesn't faze me Gonna cool off and swim with my baby Gonna get wet, but not it the ocean secluded place away from commotion tell her things about love and emotion baby let's go for a swim When I go swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover but she's only seventeen so you can not tell her brother Keep it undercover or he's sure to start fight I got a ball bat everything will be alright When I'm swimming in the summer with the girl that is my lover Better keep my baggies on don't want to make this girl a mother Tell her that I love her maybe she'll stay for a while Don't matter if I mean it she's so pretty when she

Commando 03:05
When I was a little kid it didn't matter what I did the bullies beat me up. They beat me up. Waiting for me after class the pushed me down, and kicked my ass. Then came the part that I would dread pulled my underwear over my head. No more school yard humiliation minus one layer of insulation No wedgies for me when I go commando! Yeah I go commando! When I was a little older tried my hand at some strip poker. Man what a game. Oh, what a game. Everyone knew I had lost the moment that my pants came off. And so I said well I declare I think I feel a draft in here Hope I can draw the queen of hearts gonna cover up my private parts and the girls they know when I go commando! I go commando! No more school yard humiliation minus one layer of insulation no wedgies for me when I go commando! A child of nine years old harassed by bullies every day at school. He had no choice but to take drastic measures. His parents couldn't know. His teachers couldn't know. Everyday at the bus stop we would take off his underpants and hide them in the bushes. From that day forth he became known as the commando kid! No more school yard humiliation minus one layer of insulation no wedgies for me when I go commando! When I go commando! Commando! Commando! Look out cause I go commando!

Where do the kids from California go When they've grown so tired of their homes? Everything is fake and I can't get no rest. We'll be out of here if it's on our last breathe. All the lights up on the boulevard. Only shine their bulbs on bullshit stars. North or south now my dear which was should we steer? Spoken under breath "anywhere but here." Maybe we could get a house together in the middle of a sea of trees and you could sell coffee to the trucking men and chat away with local police I could get a job in town fixing houses patching walls and mending holes We could change our names and buy new clothes and talk like them so nobody would know And then a man came on the radio and said "California, where else would you rather be?" Anywhere in the whole wide world Anywhere in the whole wide world Anywhere in the whole wide world Anywhere in the whole wide world

All the girls they run up and down the shore. And water's cold but they don't seem to care and it means something to me. Just a step behind, just a moment late. As I hesitate for an instant, my jeans fall to the sand. I don't really mind the water anymore though you never seemed to care and I never really thought there was more but we both agree there's something in the air. I need to take a rest It's getting hard to breathe Maybe it's not such a great idea to swim on a closed down beach. A dinoflagellate or some other thing. I think I recall hearing something like that on my tv. I don't really mind the water anymore though you never seemed to care and I never really though there was more but we both agree there's something in the air. It's getting hard to breath by the shore now but I'll splash in the waves with you. And I can't see a thing cause I didn't bring my glasses for the view. You see this hurts my head and those fish are dead and that sign says something dire. As we run ashore I know I really adored spending this time with you. I don't really mind the water anymore though you never seemed to care. Dead fish are washing on the shore and we both agree there's something in the air. There's something in the air.

It's raining today. I've got my galoshes. They're yellow. My mom made me wear them. I hate them! Oh, I hate them. I was walking home, through the cemetery. The ground started shaking. Then men started rising and they started skanking. In the shadow of the Super Black Death Cloud Super Black Death Cloud Super Black Death Cloud These monsters of the night these rude boy demons were skanking towards me a howling and screaming. I reached for my chainsaw and hacked up some zombies then one of them bit me I screamed for my mommy. In the shadow of the Super Black Death Cloud Super Black Death Cloud Super Black Death Cloud Backed up to the wall and surrounded by evil with smooth island rhythms they ate all the people. I took my last stand and let out a holler. I ran towards the zombies and then I found a dollar. In the shadow of the Super Black Death Cloud Super Black Death Cloud Super Black Death Cloud Lightning crash, it's not far, put a quarter in the jar. We'll ride out the storm in the tree house in my backyard. Death cloud coming in, raising zombies once again. Can we fight them off? Yeah we'll do it with a chainsaw. Zombie there on the lawn another one out by the pond, with cherry bombs and gasoline I'll burn their stupid face off. Zombies groan all afternoon, made me miss all my cartoons. Man I hate the zombies, even more than galoshes! Super Black Death Cloud
