Track Name: Fax Me
Don’t want your long distance calls
I don’t want that at all
I want your lovin’ on my dial tone
I want you to fax me at home

Fax me, Fax me, Take a chance and fax me
Fax me, Fax me, Take a chance and fax me

Don’t want your stupid texts
Those things just make a mess
Don’t dial me on your smart-ass phone
Please just fax me at home

I just need you to fax me, girl
That would really change my world
I see your paper gettin’ printed out
Come on’ girl let’s fax it out

Don’t want your pay phone calls
I’m not a fan of that at all
When you kiss me, hear the dial up tone
Please just fax me at home

Fax me at work and fax me in the shower
Fax me even if you don’t even have power
Fax me on an airplane, and fax me at the ball game
I need you to fax me! I need you to fax me!

Fax me your love, and I’ll receive it through the phone line and print it out on paper
Track Name: A Day Like This
There’s nothing like a day when nothing goes right
And the thoughts keep you up in the middle of the night
And the dog on the corner, barks so loud
And your daddy goes insane from hearing that sound
And your momma's cookin’ eggs that smell so bad
Man it’s a day like this that just makes you mad

It’s a day like this, just a day like this
Well it’s a day like this, just a day like this
Sometimes we all just (all just) smell like piss
Well it’s a day like this, just a day like this

[Attention students: It's a day like this]

There’s nothing like a day when nothing seems right
And you and your cat get in a huge fight
And you woke up too early for school again
And kids on the bus are real shit heads
And the cute girls don’t even notice you
And you trip and fall on your untied shoe

There's nothing like a day when nothing feels right
And the string goes snap on your brand new kite
And you go to your room, and its full of wasps
And your very favorite socks are totally lost
And your lunch sucks nuts, and you crawl in a ball
And you can't go to sleep 'cause your dad didn't call
Track Name: Renaissance Men
Makin’ love to you is so easy and fun
I can do it, I’m the best, I’m the number one
I can make your body sweat with the touch of my thumb
I can make your legs shake to the beat of my drum

Climb into my car, let’s go for a drive
It’s a really nice car, got my hands on your thighs
And we’re going so fast that I can’t see the road
But that’s really okay, got your lips on my own

We’re the Renaissance Men
And we’re here to say we like to sing songs in a very big way
Playin' lots of tunes and we're playing 'em right
Gonna keep you dancing all through the night

Come on take a dive, take a dip in my pool
Yeah we gotta keep it hot, but we gotta stay cool

Makin’ lots of moves and I’m making em’ right
Girl you claw me up when I turn out the light

We're the honky-tonk gang and we're from down south
We like to eat grits, we eat 'em with our mouth
You're a pretty girl, you're a Georgia Peach
We should settle down, I can massage your feet

We're the very best boys
And we’re makin’ love to you
Got you climbin’ up the walls, and we know you like it too
You’re a hot momma, and we’re really into you
We’re the very best boys
And we bid you adieu
Track Name: I Don't Know What Happened
Long nights and lonely sheets
I feel the sweat dripping off of my feet
Why’d you leave? Why’d you have to go?
I have to ask because I don’t know

I don't know what, and I don't know why
I don't know what, and I don't know why
I don't know what, and I don't know why
I don't know what, and I don't know why
I don't know what happened, I don't know what happened

So long ago you made a vow
That you’d never leave me somehow
Well now you’re gone and it hurts so much
It feels as if I’m walking with a crutch

I close my eyes and my mom shuts the door
Just be quiet I need to cry some more
This weight on my heart keeps bogging me down
I have no idea where you are now

Come back to me! I need you to set me free!
I might be, a diamond in the rough! But you always said that’s enough!
Track Name: All My Hair Is Gone
I looked in the mirror today and I think my hair is going away
No it never ever, ever, ever went grey, it just got burnt on a sunny day
Yeah, I tried all the creams, and I tried to get lice
Not having hair is not very nice
Tried to get a job, but they said "No! First you have to grow some hair bro."

I cry myself to sleep, thinking "why did this happen to me?"
Now my hair's all gone, as you can see, now I'm no longer me

All my hair is gone, all my hair is gone
No it didn't seem to take very long
You know it all fell out, there's no reason to pout
But now my hair is gone, all my hair is gone

I saw Trevor in his sleep, and I didn't make a peep
but I saw his bald head, and when he woke up, here's what he said,
"Sometimes life can change in a day, and all you get is pain and dismay from a look in the mirror, and you wish and you pray for a brand new toupee."
Well, Trevor is bald and there's no going back.
When you're young and bald, your life's off track.

At night I dream of what it's like to have a head full of hair, it feels so right
Not this scalp on my head that's so cold
Skin isn't feel good, it - it - oh.

It's gone all my hair is gone, all my hair is gone
No it didn't seem to take very long
You know it all fell out, there's no reason to pout
But now my hair is gone, all my hair is gone

All my hair is gone, oh it's gone
It's gone, gone away, won't come back on a sunny day
I don't know what to do, but my hair is gone, and I blame you

Tonight I won't cry, tonight I won't sleep
I'm gonna get my hair back, I'm gonna shave off a sheep
I'll put it on my head, that's all I can do
Well, all my hair is gone, and I blame you
Track Name: Science Experiment
Is there something that you'd like to know?
I tell you science is the way to go
Set up a control and figure it out
You'll learn what the world's all about

What's in the ocean and why do I get sick?
Science can tell you how you exist
A bunsen burner and a beaker or two
To understand science, that's what we all must do

Science experiment
Science experiment
Science experiment
Science experiment
Science experiment
Science experiment
Science experiment
Science experiment

Some foods are poison but some foods are sweet
Learning and science can be really neat
Some bugs are living and some bugs are dead
Knowledge is power, it can go to your head
Track Name: Where Were You?
The Renaissance Men and we're here to stay
The Renaissance Men, we're not going away
Renaissance Men living on our own
and I don't want to cry no more

The Renaissance Men living in a sewer
The Renaissance Men living on a skewer
The Renaissance Men living in the yard
and I don't want to hurt no more

Bless me tender, bless me sweet
Take me in and rub my feet
I love you more than life itself
and I don't want that pain no more

Where were you when the bombs fell down?
The bombs were so big
Everyone, everywhere knew what they did
They lit the fuse, what's the use?
Get out of town
They flipped the switch, they had an itch
to blow the bombs down

Well, Obama's got his finger in the cookie jar
No matter where you are, stand where you are
You know you are the best, yeah, yes you are
It's got a top speed of twenty- far
It's called a car, and we're driving real far

If you put on your breaks - you stop America yeah
Please excuse me if I ever say too much

Ten. Nine. Eight. Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Zero.

My god, what have we done to ourselves?
My dad, he has constructed this hell
We are trapped like rats in a mouse-trap
And my gods, they all ran away
Track Name: All of Your Crumbs
I tried to clean your crumbs today
But it looks as if your crumbs are here to stay

All of your crumbs
All of your crumbs
All of your crumbs
