Track Name: Bananahs
BANANAHS
She's gotta denim jacket on, with a 7 Seconds patch sewn on the back
She likes to go to hardcore shows, she's not really into to pop punk bands
On and on she exclaims, that being vegans so fucking cool
And on and on she reiterates, that being edge really fucking rules

(Chorus)
Hannah goes bananas, but she doesn't go for me
And Hannah likes eating tofu, but tofu's not my thing
Hannah don't like bananas and she sure as hell don't like me
Don't like me

Hannah! (x3)

She's gotta a cute butt she likes to strut, as she walks away
If Han Solo was in my blood, she'd probably look my way
Even though she don't like to drink, Minor Threat taught her to soberly think
She's everything I think is lame, but she's the girl I wanna date

(Chorus)

Hannah! (x3)

Everyone makes fun of me (ooo-ooo)
Cause I like a girl that don't like me, but I don't know... (ooo-ooo)
Everyone's a masochist, and Hannah is an atheist (ooo-ooo)
I'd totally be an anarchist for her (a whoa oh oh) (ohhhhhhh)

(Chorus)

Hannah! (x8)
Track Name: I'm Not Perfect (But at Least I'm OK)
I'M NOT PERFECT (BUT AT LEAST I'M O K)
I've been living my life today
I've been learning from my mistakes
Well I know I'm not perfect but at least I'm OK
Track Name: Will You Ever Love Me?
WILL YOU EVER LOVE ME?
When you're in doubt, when you're feeling sad
You know I'll be there, you don't even have to ask
If you were mine, I would make things right
I hope my love for you will help you to decide
I don't wanna waste away my life
But it'd be so cool if you were mine
'Cause I'm wondering, will you ever love me
I'm wondering, will you ever love me
I'm wondering, will you ever love me
Like I love you
Tell me your problems, and tell me your fears
Along the beach side, I will whisper in your ears
The sand on your toes, those chocolate brown eyes
You're the only one I want to satisfy
Does your heart ever skip a beat
When you he-ear my voice speak ?
'Cause I'm wondering will you ever love me (love me)
I'm wondering will you ever love me (love me)
I'm wondering, will you ever love me like I love you
I'm wondering I'm wondering I'm wondering I'm wondering
I'm wondering will you ever love me like I love you
Track Name: Scout's Honor
SCOUT'S HONOR
It's probably not worth it, but still I'll try
I'm just as useful as a dull pocket knife
I'm living life and getting a contact high
because you're tattooed on my mind

and I promise you, that I'll never grow up
and I promise you, that I'm stupid over you
You'll beat your drums and I'll shred my 6 strings
I'll shave my face, and you'll shave your legs
I'm getting anxious, 'cause I know I'm going to your place
I might be a black sheep, but so you know, I'll never change

I know I'm rugged and not great on looks
we're both stubborn, and that's how our friendship works
I've got stomach flu 'cause I'm thinking of you
and since you came around, my life has been less blue
And I promise you, that I'll never grow up
and I promise you, that I'm stupid over you
You'll beat your drums and I'll shred my 6 strings
I'll shave my face, and you'll shave your legs
I'm getting anxious, 'cause I know I'm going to your place
I might be a black sheep, but so you know, I'll never change
Guys will always, have stains on their jeans
Girls will always, hide their identities
I refuse, to ever change these clothes
As long as you, continue being so shallow
Track Name: Keera, I'm Not Gonna Shave My Face
Keera, I'm Not Gonna Shave My Face
Keera I'm not, going to shave my face.
Keera I'm not, so get the hell off of my case
No you're not the boss of me, and I'm not your boyfriend.
No I'm not your stupid fucking boyfriend.
1-2-3-4

Keera I'm not, going to shave my face.
Keera I'm not, 'cause we're not going to first base
No you're not the boss of me, and no ! I'm not your boyfriend.
No I'm not your stupid skater boyfriend. Oh No
No I'm not your stupid stoner boyfriend. Oh No
No, no I'm not, your fucking boyfriend.
Track Name: Worthless
WORTHLESS
Nothing I do is ever good, I guess
Everything I do is such a problematic mess
Track Name: AWOL Girl
AWOL Girl
We saw the Aquabats, and Reel Big Fish,
I thought we had a good time.
I guess you didn't feel the love.
I'm wond'rin' where you went, and what I did
And if you really hate me
And who it is you're doing now

You're 27 and I'm 19
I didn't mean to make a scene
But girls like you don't come my way at all

Emily...oh Emily...Emily..where'd you go?
Emily...oh Emily...Emily...my AWOL girl,
I guess you're not my girl.

Saw you at school today, you waved at me,
I guess that you're not mad, but
What happened to our winter break?
You told me that you're seein' some doctor guy
'Cause-ya couldn't cope with this dope
I hope you choke on his stethoscope

You're 27 and I'm 19
I didn't mean to make a scene
But girls like you don't come my way at all

Emily...oh Emily...Emily..where'd you go?
Emily...oh Emily...Emily...my AWOL girl,
I guess you're not my girl.
Track Name: Bubblegum Girl
BUBBLEGUM GIRL
Sitting outside the mall, she's smoking a cigarette
I did a double take, she disappeared from the bench
Are you just a mirage, my bubblegum girl? My bubblegum girl

I'm working up the courage, so I can talk with you
But the idea scares me, 'cause you don't have a clue
Do you think I deserve you, my bubblegum girl? My bubblegum girl

(Chorus)
I've been staring anxiously (ahhhhh-ba-ba)
Cause I've gotta hunch you're the gal for me
Wishing and hoping my dream comes true (ahhhh-ba-baaaa)
And one of these days, I won't be blue

I'll do whatever it takes, to catch a glimpse of you
I'll map out your classes, and follow your route
Do you think I'm pathetic, my bubblegum girl? My bubblegum girl

(Chorus)
I've been staring anxiously (ahhhhh-ba-ba)
Cause I've gotta hunch you're the gal for me
Wishing and hoping my dream comes true (ahhhh-ba-baaaa)
And one of these days, I won't be blue

I always thought you'd be the girl for me
I wanted you to be the girl for me

(Chorus)
I've been staring anxiously (ahhhhh-ba-ba)
Cause I've gotta hunch you're the gal for me
Wishing and hoping my dream comes true (ahhhh-ba-baaaa)
And one of these days, I won't be blue
Track Name: F-R-I-E-N-D-S
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
You called me on the phone today to talk about the problems
You're having' with your boyfriend and I don't know how to solve 'em
But I told you that I've liked you for a real long time (ohhhh)
And you've been acting strange since you've been dating that fat guy (ohhh)
You called me over after school to come and play some zelda
And I didn't know what to do, because I can't forget ya
So I asked you out again, like every other day
Then you said "hell no!" to my face,
And said "maybe we should just be friends!"
Just be friends, just be friends
1-2-3-4
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
Track Name: Summer
SUMMER
It's starting, to feel a lot like
A lot like summer, a la la la
We'll take tons of shots, meet cute girls that smoke pot
And I'm starting to get over you

It's starting, to feel a lot like
A lot like summer, a la la la
Cute girls in bikinis, whose boyfriends are cheating
And I'm gonna do right by you

(Solo) Ahh-ah-ah-ah

It's starting, to feel a lot like
A lot like summer, a la la la
I'm taking my time, I'll try to do things right
But I'm not leaving here without you

I'm taking my time, I'll try to do things right
But I'm not leaving here without you
I'm taking my time, I'll try to do things right
But I'm not leaving here without you
Track Name: I Want You
I WANT YOU
Well, I didn't think it was possible that girls like you exist
You must be from another galaxy, and your Naboo boyfriend's pissed
And it doesn't make much sense that you are hangin' out with me
This sci-fi girl-o-matic joy is a confusing mystery-y-y

If age don't matter I must be in heaven
I don't care if you're twenty seven
I want you, why can't you be mi-i-ine
Cause I want you

My infatuation's turned into a serious disease
I woke up in a cold sweat when you kissed me in my dreams
And you must be a hologram, 'cause you are too good to be true
I'm gonna go right back to sleep, so I can keep dreaming of you-o-o

If age don't matter I must be in heaven
I don't care if you're twenty seven
I want you, why can't you be mi-i-ine
Cause I want you
Track Name: Stupid Songs
STUPID SONGS
I was sitting in my room playing video games,
turned the radio on and heard "Basket Case".
Me and my friends wanted to start a band,
but we weren't that good with our instruments.
I picked up my guitar and wrote a stupid song,
about a silly girl who broke my heart.
Made a crappy flyer with paper and pens,
for a basement show we played for only our friends.

I was getting sick of lockers pressed against my cheeks,
so I wrote some new songs and learned how to speak.
I'm an invisible guy who can't disappear,
but I'm still playing the chords you don't want to hear.
I've broken some strings and I've made great friends,
while wiping clean tables with dirty rags.
I'm cleaning my locker of words left unsaid,
but I'll always have those songs stuck in my head.

I know someday I'm gonna get the hell out of here
I'm a suburban step off beat, but I can't go another year

(Chorus)
I know I can't see straight,
But this whole damn world keeps tugging on my strings again
And I keep crawling back to you.
This town has put me in my place,
And I know someday I'll get back on my feet again
But I keep crawling back to you

We were sitting on your roof singing our favorite songs
While choking on words trying to clear our lungs
We watched "Freaks and Geeks" in your living room
and tried to gain perspective about our youth
You've been losing your touch through a daily trend
while I'm on 57 North touring with my friends
Still holding onto reoccurring high school dreams
where I never kept up with the other black sheep

I know someday I'm gonna get the hell out of here
I'm a suburban step off beat, but I can't go another year

(Chorus)

Some of my friends went off to college,
and got a job they never wanted
Some of my friends dropped out of college,
and couldn't finish what they started.
