Track Name: Bottle It and Sell It
Good God since I've been loving you my hair is so soft and smooth
And my permanent don't frizz like it used to do
I'm gonna throw away all my creams, send back all my lotions
Got no use for no drug store magic potions
Cause what you give me all the time, you know it keeps me looking fine

Bottle it and sell it, what you got
Bottle it and sell it, cold or hot
Bottle it and sell it, door to door
Bottle it and sell it, to the rich and poor

Well well well all the boys I know have been giving me a second look
And the girls have all been asking 'bout what pill i took
They try to write down information so they can run out and try it
But what I got ain't at the store and I sure as hell didn't buy it
Cause what you give me all the time, you know it keeps me looking fine

Bottle it and sell it, what you got
Bottle it and sell it, cold or hot
Bottle it and sell it, door to door
Bottle it and sell it, to the rich and poor

All the girls I know, they'll be queueing to stand in line
And their boyfriends won't be quizzing them about where they been spending time
Cause when your girl leaves the house a mess, when she leaves she'll be turning heads
You'll be lucky she found the cure that the whole world's looking for
Cause what you give me all the time, you know it keeps me looking fine

Bottle it and sell it, what you got
Bottle it and sell it, cold or hot
Bottle it and sell it, door to door
Bottle it and sell it, to the rich and poor
Track Name: Bible Salesman
I once played the harpsichord, carried school books and praised the lord
Everybody said I favored my dear old mother in the grave
My father made a sport of keeping the boys away from seeing me
But the man who sold the holy book breached my doorstep and me he took

We slept down in the riverbed where my man would scream and curse the dead
On and off the medicine, little bottles in the sand
And I would wander to the town in my bare feet and dressing gown
Beg a few coins for bread and coal, "here's a bible, save your soul"

Eventually I landed here when the screaming made me run in fear
They had to take the kitchen shears, cut my hair, cut my clothes
They gave me back my harpsichord but they wouldn't let me praise the lord
There's a new god to whom you'll sing, the golden coin here is king
Track Name: I Am Not a Baby
Another lonely day
I don't have the will to put my toys away
They're worthless, plain to see
Just baubles you gave to me

Baby I believed you could do anything
Born yesterday, save and warm beneath your wings
Baby now I know what you don't see right away
Is the bird has clause to manage his little prey

But I am not a baby no more
I don't cry at night when you slam the door
The lovin' that you think you see in my eye
Even little girls, they learn how to lie
Darling wait and see, this is how it's going to be
I am not a baby

Playing house, sweeping and mopping floors
But a house has walls, and windowpanes and doors
Every lock has it's key
Swinging hinge sets me free

Always look both ways before you cross the street
Gonna be alone until I'm on my feet
I'll stay out all night, cause there's no one to tuck me in
If you think that I'll be calling back, well, think again

Cause I am not a baby no more
I don't cry at night when you slam the door
The lovin' that you think you see in my eye
Even little girls, they learn how to lie
Darling wait and see, this is how it's going to be
I am not a baby, no no

I am not a baby no more
I don't cry at night when you slam the door
The lovin' that you think you're seeing in my eye
Even little girls, they learn how to lie
Darling wait and see, this is how it's going to be
I am not a baby, no no
Track Name: Beginner Scorpion
Well you know I said don't try to meet my eye, I can't take the way you stare
It already pains me to have driven from my lair
Let's not beat around the bush, you know why I came in
I need a pandinus captured wild in Benin

I hear it makes, I hear it makes an excellent beginner scorpion
If you lock the door to your vivarium when you sleep
It'll build, it'll build an underworld in vermiculite
And meet you in the germicidal deep

I've got my cash in hand, no credit cards or checks
I got burned last time taking chances with FedEx
This desert sure gets hot, with it's sparkly gypsum rocks
Like my bearded dragon smothered in it's giant mailing box

I hear it makes, I hear it makes an excellent beginner scorpion
If you lock the door to your vivarium when you sleep
It'll build, it'll build an underworld in vermiculite
And meet you in the germicidal deep

That secret agent man took me for the missing link
To the leader of the reptile ring they call the Blue-Eyed Skink
I've always been misused but I loved that agent man
Like I love my baby python stuffed inside a coffee can

I hear it makes, I hear it makes an excellent beginner scorpion
If you lock the door to your vivarium when you sleep
It'll build, it'll build an underworld in vermiculite
And meet you in the germicidal deep
Track Name: Heartbroke
Have you ever had your heart broke while falling in love
Cause you know I had my heart broke while falling in love
I found a love so true, while I was still in love with you
And now my heart's broke
And I'm falling, falling in love

We had a love so deep, thought it would never run dry
But you ran around on me, but would never say why
Sorry's just a five letter word, but it sure makes a nice place to hide
But I'll find that cold heart of yours and cut it deep down inside

Have you ever had your heart broke while falling in love
Cause you know I had my heart broke while falling in love
I found a love so true, while I was still in love with you
And now my heart's broke
And I'm falling, falling in love

My best friend and I, we been shutting down the bars
But you never once were suspicious cause he don't drive the right kind of car
But one night the band was cooking, it was crowded and hot
I pulled him out on the dance floor but he pulled out all the stops

Have you ever had your heart broke while falling in love
Cause you know I had my heart broke while falling in love
I found a love so true, while I was still in love with you
And now my heart's broke
And I'm falling, falling in love

Whenever I see my girlfriends they look for the pain in my eyes
Well it's right there, yeah, if you look hard but that's not where my attention lies
My best friend, he's a real good friend, you know he's always right there by my side
He's helping me work it out every morning, noon and night

Have you ever had your heart broke while falling in love
Cause you know I had my heart broke while falling in love
I found a love so true, while I was still in love with you
And now my heart's broke
And I'm falling, falling in love
Track Name: Higher Than the Weeds
Don't ask me I just work here in front of the old filofax machine
Behind my coke bottle glasses I've got my little old routine
Ain't got no pictures of family, miss the Christmas party every year
Ask me a personal question and you'll get an empty stare

With a homemade jug of huckleberry wine
Three hits of windowpane, hers and yours and mine
We'll be higher than the weeds out in front of our house that the neighbors say are a real bad sign

You have extrasensory perception and could tell I'd been alone for quite some time
You said "You are young, but you're a woman. A woman, mother, goddess, soul divine"
Let my people read your tarot, aren't you lucky you drew the hangman's noose
Now go and draw us a paycheck, on the weekends we'll cut loose

With a homemade jug of huckleberry wine
Three hits of windowpane, hers and yours and mine
We'll be higher than the weeds out in front of our house that the neighbors say are a real bad sign

How many times do I have to tell you not to call this number any more
The family I'm in now with sister, brother, roll around in blankets on the floor
Enveloped in universal light rays surrounding our most righteous holy sect
Maybe later if we both act nice you'll let us play your eight track deck

With a homemade jug of huckleberry wine
Three hits of windowpane, hers and yours and mine
We'll be higher than the weeds out in front of our house that the neighbors say are a real bad sign
