Track Name: She (Was My Baby)
I've been working every night and day
For my baby so she won't run away
I keep on begging and pleading
Her love I'm always needing all the time

Cause when I look into her eyes
You know I realize that she's my baby
And I just can't find the words to say

Holding hands as we walk along
She feels right, man, no she don't feel wrong
She keeps on talking about leaving
I know she's got a reason on her mind

But when I look into her eyes
You know I realize that she's my baby
And I just can't find the words to say

Now I can't keep those tears out of my eyes
I'll never see my baby

Now I'm walking but I walk alone
I turned the ringer off my telephone
I think about her and wonder
The reasons why she had to say goodbye

Cause when you look into her eyes
You know I realize that she's my baby
And I just can't find the words to say
Track Name: Mandibles
No we don't know what to do about those goddamn animals
Always thinking of what to do about those goddamn animals
Should we feed them all to the goddamn manimals
Yes we should be thinking of those goddamn animals

It's only a shame
It's leaking into my brain
They must be onto our game
Lonely animals

Going to the petting zoo to see the goddamn manimals
Open all the gates to free those goddamn manimals
Catch them feed them all to those goddamn animals
Yes we should be thinking of those goddamn animals

It's only a shame
It's leaking into my brain
They must be onto our game
Lonely animals

Walked on down to the grocery store to see those goddamn animals
Opened all the cellophane to pet those goddamn animals
Opened up a petting zoo for those goddamn animals
Yes we should be thinking of those goddamn animals

It's only a shame
It's leaking into my brain
They must be onto our game
Lonely animals
Track Name: Turnaround Girl
I met my baby after all kinds of moving and shaking
She left me singing some sad sad songs about losing I've taken
All kinds of grief she'd have you believe that we'd never be
Oh, that's not all that she told me

I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl
I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl
I couldn't be seen with a turnaround girl
I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl

Hey, everyone listen up now
This is a warning
The next time your ears whisper some lovely story
Then your arms open up for all kinds of moving and shaking
Whenever you turn around then you will feel your heart breaking

I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl
I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl
I couldn't be seen with a turnaround girl
I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl
