Track Name: Me & Bobby McGee
Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train
And I's feeling nearly as faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
It rode us all the way to New Orleans.

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,
I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues.
Windshield wipers slapping time, I was holding Bobby's hand in mine,
We sang every song that driver knew.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing don't mean nothing honey if it ain't free, now now.
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
You know feeling good was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun,
Hey, Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.
Through all kinds of weather, through everything that we done,
Hey Bobby baby kept me from the cold.

One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away,
He's looking for that home and I hope he finds it,
But I'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday
To be holding Bobby's body next to mine.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing, that's all that Bobby left me, yeah,
But feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
Hey, feeling good was good enough for me, hmm hmm,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la
La la la la la Bobby McGee.
La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, Bobby McGee, la.

La La la, la la la la la la,
La La la la la la la la la, hey now Bobby now Bobby McGee yeah.
Na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey now Bobby now, Bobby McGee, yeah.

Lord, I'm calling my lover, calling my man,
I said I'm calling my lover just the best I can,
C'mon, where is Bobby now, where is Bobby McGee, yeah,
Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord!

Yeah! Whew!

Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee.
Track Name: About A Boy
And I wait for you
Idly linger around you
Surrounded by and unwanted crowd
Drifting off on a perfect stare
I feel those eyes
Crashing down
I want you to
You want me, too
I want…
You.
And yet I sit still
Confused
Constantly left pining over you
Blinded by your lies
I’m infatuated
All of this madness that you created
With those eyes
Crashing down
I want you to
You want me, too
I want…
You.
Anonymous you
Oh baby I do
My wild imagination set untrue
Figments of you
Scenarios of us two
I close my eyes
I feel your hands
Before you get too close
You.
Anonymous you
Notice me
Make my dreams become reality
What can I do
I can’t say that I love you
But I do
I love you
It keeps me coming back to…
You.
Track Name: Foul Play
At the end of my knife is your place
Mine or nin is your place
I've gone mad and It's my place
What a fucking disgrace

Infatuation's too deep
But, you can't feel me
Gonna hunt you down
Away from she
'Cause I like you
Yes, I do, Yes, I do, Yes, I do
No, I love you
Oooh, Yes, I do

Oooooh......
Track Name: Fever
Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that's so hard to bear

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night.

Ev'rybody's got the fever
that is something you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I'm gonna treat you right

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said 'Julie, baby, you're my flame
Thou giv-est fever when we kisseth
Fever with the flaming youth
Fever I'm afire
Fever yea I burn for sooth'

Captain Smith and Pocahantas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said 'Daddy, o, don't you dare
He gives me fever with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever, I'm his misses,
Oh daddy, won't you treat him right'

Now you've listened to my story
Here's the point that I have made
Cats were born to give chicks fever
Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade
They give you fever when you kiss them
Fever if you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
Track Name: Bittersweet
Here it goes once again
another sappy-ass fucking love song
let it slip that I’m way more than just love sick
Whoa, baby it’s been way too long
it’s bittersweet
Those piercing eyes never looked so tempting
against my skin you left me trembling
if all we had was an innocent stare
I’d re-live it over and over and over again
Forever
Can’t get the thought of you out of my mind
despite all the shit that you do
why are you so far away?
All alone, I’m left here to stay
Its bittersweet
Those piercing eyes never looked so tempting
against my skin you left me trembling
If all we had was an innocent stare
I’d re-live it over and over and over again
Forever
Racing, pounding machine gun in my chest
I’m melting at your feet
Baby, what a mess
Secretly, I’m yours
A secret far too hard for me to keep
It’s bittersweet
