    1. Bird Of The Birds

    The strangest thing happened to me
    It was last night when I couldn’t sleep
    The little bird-pals were talking about
    Their holiday experiences so loud

    Who is the bird of birds in town
    Singing na naa na na na na na na now
    And duu du du duu du du du du all around
    If my head wasn’t so small I’d wear a crown

    I’m 100 % sure they said:
    “Hello honey, did you get laid?”
    “No, but Sally and Grace did
    Thou I ain’t bitter, not a bit”

    Little birds were talking about
    Holiday experiences so loud

     

    2. Beef Rice

    There are bad boys in this train
    Again, again, again
    Now they’re starting bang, bang, bang

    Unlike the other story
    This ain’t have no glory
    The boys are from a gang, gang, gang

    This is terror, don’t do error
    Or I’ll flip it, whip it, quit it

    At the corner little me
    As small as I can be
    If I smile, they’ll let me free?

    But I ain’t even noticed
    Boys’ heads must be filled with piss
    I would’ve been the best hostage

     

    3. Angus

    Angus wasn’t at all like the other piranha
    Didn’t want to be bad like the normal piranha
    Never felt comfortable with those evil piranha
    So he left his home and friends to find some nicer piranha

    The piranha world!
    Oh you wouldn’t want to live in piranha world
    The piranha world!
    No you wouldn’t want to live in piranha world
    It’s a bad place to be
    You wouldn’t want to see
    It’s a dark and cold
    The piranha world!

    Very soon Angus learned that there are no nice piranha
    And he found a friend called Bruno who was a whale not a piranha
    He now lives in the sea always avoiding other piranha
    He’s the only one if you want to meet a friendly piranha

    He won’t bite no one
    So you wouldn’t have to run
    He won’t bite no one
    Wouldn’t shoot if you gave him a gun

     

    4. Zombie

    If you don’t believe me I can swear that every word is true
    I met this Zombie in a pub called “Trombi”
    And he told me his lifestory
    Neverminding his appearance (the customers had fleed to terrace)
    He started talking, made me nodding
    And I could do nothing but listen
    Because he was so odd, so hear me

    Zombie behave
    Howcome did you lose your babe
    Three times you have yourself betrayed
    She even has the same sized shoe
    Is this what you are oughtta do?

    He said that “The thing is that, I used to be an unshaped prat
    And I did really much enjoy
    making people feel flat, oh boy!
    But once I met my little Janice, I lost my cool and went to panic
    She was a beautie and my duty
    was to let her down, I would have made her frown
    I even ate my leg to proof it”

    Zombie behave
    Howcome did you eat your leg
    Three times you have yourself betrayed
    She even has the same sized shoe
    Is this what you are oughtta do?

     

    5. Jail

    One day you came to me and said to me that you’ve got
    Something for me to hide today
    “Now keep it secret”, then you handed me a small box
    “And have it with you while I am away”

    Oh no I ain’t no afraid
    Naughty ones go to jail
    I’ve done nothing wrong
    Mom don’t be mad for long

    You’ve always been my hero, so ofcourse I’d help you
    Sure you would do the same for me
    But what was inside of this box I just could not to
    Prevent myself, I needed to see

    The second after you left, I heard knock knock on my
    Door and a very angry voice:
    “We know you have got it, so do not start to cry
    You are arrested and this was your choice

     

    6. Okto

    Okto is an octopussy named Okto
    He forgets everything in five seconds
    Only few like him straight away
    but when you get to know him
    you will love him

    When he tries to speak to you
    he sounds a bit like mr. Bean
    It’s so funny when he swims upside down
    He is happy everywhere
    Never worries ’bout a thing
    He is the best octopussy I’ve ever known

    Okto’s brains contains only three brain cells
    He is very satisfied with his life and himself
    ‘Cause if something bad happened
    he wouldn’t understand it
    He would just be

     

    7. The Everlasting Difficulty Of Important Choices

    Skirt or trousers
    or those nice jeans, oh shush-
    they are dirty.
    And which shirt should I wear?
    What can I do to my hair?

    Why does it have to be so damn impossible
    to find clothes for tonight oh
    My closet’s full of dull and boring clothes
    and I’m gonna look like shit for sure

    Which jacket should I wear?
    Is it cold out there?
    Fu these shoes don’t match
    oh please make the train wait for me

    And my face looks shapeless my left eye is so stupid.
    There’s no time to make up anymore so I’ll look y‰‰h

    Uh, I look like a sausage!

    Everybody’s going there and gonna be so pretty
    I’ve just got these beaten up shoes and they look so ugly

    My closet’s full of dull and boring clothes
    and I’ll be laughed at anyway so fuck-
    I’ll just go naked.

     

    8. Hero Sounds

    Right after watching My Blueberry Nights
    I might just have a bite
    We had this mega pillow fight

    Just you and I (and my roommate)
    We didn’t need no Barry White
    You asked me if I was your babe

    Ofcourse I told you I was

    “Let’s do it like the heroes do”
    I didn’t quite understand what you ment
    But then I followed you to where
    I could not tell

    I know you are soon leaving home
    But I ain’t no alone
    I’ll sing you this song in a phone

     

    9. Sad Song

    Quite many nights I have
    Heard Jeff Buckley singing
    Although he’s already dead
    He sings: “She was heartache from the
    Moment that you meet her” and
    I think she is like me

    It feels funny that I don’t know you anymore
    I just know so well the boy that you were before
    The last year we were together I did everything so wrong
    I think I’d be better now but I know that it doesn’t count

    And I haven’t found a love song
    That would help me out of this
    So I had to make my own, my own
    This is my sad song, love song,
    sad song, love song

    You were always sad ’cause you
    Lost your History -album
    The one by Michael Jackson
    I hope that you got it now and I
    Want you to know that I’ve been
    Really sad ’cause I lost you

    We made songs together and the lyrics were like shit
    But it was the best time just like all the times with you
    You always made me laugh and without you I wouldn’t be
    Even this sane and quite normal that I am today

    And I know that I am guilty
    I think I know it too well
    And all the time I’m just talking and crying about this
    When you’re just trying to forget

     

    10. Where Did You Go?

    I watch the moon
    and then you wake up
    what did you see-ee?
    Fireflies fly up.

    Where did you go?
    Where did you go?
    You swallowed me
    behind the sea

    Now it’s so cold
    I took your cardigan
    You left it he-ear
    the scent won’t wear off.

    I’m waiting here for you
    please do come home soon
    I left the window open
    So you could climb to me
    if you forgot your keys.

    I watch you sleep
    but then I fall too
    And in my dre-eams
    fireflies fly up.

     

    11. Sarra

    Sarra, you’re the cutest girl in the world
    Sarra, you’re the smallest one too
    I can only be the second best but I don’t mind
    I know that your shoe size is only 35

    If you are a boy
    And you don’t have a girlfriend
    Then you should consider
    To take this girl I know to be your
    Cutest girlfriend ever
    But actually I don’t know
    I she has a boyfriend
    But you still can ask
    Her name is

    Sarra, she’s the cutest girl in the world
    Sarra, she’s the smallest one too
    I can only be the second best but I don’t mind
    I know that her shoe size is only 35

    If you are a girl
    You can maybe be her friend but
    Only if you are nice
    And that is the rule for the boys too
    I am really proud ’cause
    I know her so well that
    I even got her number
    Her number is 040-50…
    Won’t tell the rest
    Her name is

    SARRA! You’re the cutest
    SARRA! You’re the smallest

    Sarrarrarrarra
    Sarrarrarrarra

    Cute sings domdididom
    In this little song and
    That fits really great ’cause
    Sarra is so cute and little
    And she is so pretty also
    And so nice and small and fun
    I don’t have anything bad to say
    About her
