Track Name: Make Babies
Now come and help me decide
Its been burning me up inside
Going to be hard to justify
Shall we have babies or get high

You'll end up twice the smile
Everything's more worthwhile
Life is twice as nice
But everything's twice the price

Let's go party just you and I
We can leave those drips behind
Live the teenage dream and fly
For what meaning in your life?

Now there's is no need to fight
There is no wrong or right
So responsibility?
Or throw it away and party

I'll keep on dancing
The clock's ticking
I'll keep on dancing
The clock's ticking
I'll keep on dancing
The clock's ticking

There must be more to life than this
Than fall in love, the first kiss
Impregnate and procreate,
And finally it starts all over again


Let's go let's dance til dawn
I need to feel young and reborn
Let's forget about this til morn
And when are you coming home?

I've not finished having fun
Can I propagate when I'm done?
Soon you'll be firing blanks
You're no longer twenty one

Come on I still have life
Even when she became my wife
I'm doing what I can
She should find another man




Let's go and get some shots
I know all the great great spots
Come meet my friends be free
Yes be free and diseased

I'll keep on dancing
The clock's ticking
I'll keep on dancing
The clock's ticking
I'll keep on dancing
The clock's ticking

There must be more to life than this
Than fall in love, the first kiss
Procreate and impregnate
And finally it starts all over again

Got to keep it together
Just keep it together
Make babies
Get high
Track Name: Why Should I Look Like Everybody Else?
Hey little boy there standing by yourself, can you still cry through your tiny eyes?
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone
Hey fat boy with your big belly does it hurt when I push you down to the ground
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone

When I'll grow up I'll become a man
Will I leave behind all the things that make me who I am
If I lose my faith, and lose my tongue
And erase all the places that I feel apart from
And now

Why should I look like everybody else?
Why should I talk like everybody else?
Why should I dress like everybody else?
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Hey boy, don't you know that this is our road. This is not your road JUST GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone
Hey little boy do you know kung fu? Just like all the rest of you people do
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone

When I'll grow up I'll become a man
Will I leave behind all the things that make me who I am
If I lose my faith, and lose my tongue
And erase all the places that I feel apart from
And now

Why should I look like everybody else?
Why should I talk like everybody else?
Why should I dress like everybody else?
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Why should I look like everybody else?
Why should I talk like everybody else?
Why should I dress like everybody else?
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Why should I look like everybody else?
You should look like everybody else!
Why should I talk like everybody else?
You should talk like everybody else!
Why should I dress like everybody else?
You should dress like everybody else!
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Why should I sing like everybody else?
You should sing like everybody else!
Why should I live like everyone else?
You should live like everybody else!
Why should I love like everybody else?
You should love everybody else!
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win
Track Name: Dance Like a Duck Thief
There is no shame in acting nineteen
There is no shame in composing dreams
Is it alright?
Yes it's alright!

Just growing up and settle down
Work 9 to 5 in greys and browns
Is it alright?
Yes it's alright!

Live your life in front of a screen?
Stand-up be seen instead of unseen
Is it alright?
Yes it's alright!

Should I carry my baggage around?
Round my neck like a ten ton pound
I just want to
Get it off your chest
Get it off your chest
Get it off your chest
Get it off your chest

I'm gonna dance like a duck thief
Sing like a duck thief
Jump like a duck thief
Play like a duck thief

Play guitar like a drama Queen?
Can I pose in a magazine?
Is it alright?
Yes it's alright!

Can I dress like how I want to?
Can I be honest with me and you?
Is it alright?
Yes it's alright!

Can I live life openly?
With no fear sneers but freely
Is it alright?
Yes it's alright!

Should I carry my baggage around?
Round my neck like ten a ton pound
I just want to
Get it off your chest
Get it off your chest
Get it off your chest
Get it off your chest

I'm gonna dance like a duck thief
Sing like a duck thief
Jump like a duck thief
Play like a duck thief

What shall I do with my life?
What shall I do with my life?

I'm gonna dance like a duck thief
Sing like a duck thief
Jump like a duck thief
Play like a duck thief

Make it like a duck thief
Look Like a duck thief
Fail like a duck thief
Flap like a duck thief
Track Name: Make It On Your Own
You'll never stand on your two feet
Never break the mould
A life of mediocrity
Forget your hopes and industry
Forget your big ideas
It's just sociology

So I'm a fool, need to listen to you
And you're so great
So Arsène Lupin would never approve of me
And you're so great
What are these words that you want me to say?
Du fric, du blé, des balles, de l'oseille
du pognon, les banlieues en Argenteuil
I'm going to be a millionaire
Just one of these days
No matter what you say
I’m going to make it some day

Come take my hand, you must understand
That your dreams are all but just dreams
Come take my hand, I'll show you the land
Of what reality means

You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong
You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong


So queue up and get back in line
We're going to take back control
We're going to control radio
Don't ever attempt original
It's just not in your genes
It's just zoological






So sir you are better than them
And you're so great
You have black friends. You have white friends
And you're so great
So you might wear a safety pin
Stay in and read the guardian
Click your way to revolution
But you're the problem not the solution

Come take my hand, I'll show you the land
Of what reality means

You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong
You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong


I'm stronger than you!
Hell no!
I'm better than you!
Hell no!
I'm faster than you!
Hell no!
I'm better looking than you!
Hell no!
Come and ride with us!
I say no!
And just believe in us!
I just said No!

We’ll make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!
We’ll make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!
We’ll make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!
We’ll make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!


We’ll make it on our own!
