S-E-X-X-Y

Dressed only in clothes
From her head to her toes
This is the way the talking part goes

S-E-X-X-Y more than enough
Around the clock with nobody else S-E-X-X-Y
There she is
Standing on the bed
Cookie in one hand, wig on her head
S-E-X-X-Y
X because it's extra baby
Y because it's extra baby
Unnoticed by few, very very few
And that includes you
Look inside your mind
Look inside your eye
Secret agent spy, come to see why
S-E-X-X-Y
One finger nail
Across your back
Baby's first gold tooth initials inscribed
>=S-E-X-X-Y<=
X because it's extra baby
Y because It's extra baby
You gotta understand, she wants to be your man
She's got another plan



Sensurround

When I was only a zygote
I still remember the time
When there was nothing to know or to think about
Except the sound of my mind
And the sound from outside.

SenSurround
Down at the bottom
Sensible to ear and sternum
And the world first spoke to me in SenSurround.

If mom had known she was expecting
She might have gone to see Jaws
Instead of picking a film where the sound effects
Came right up through the floor
And I'd be differently formed.

SenSurround
Down at the bottom
Sensible to ear and sternum
And the world first spoke to me in SenSurround.

Accidently in a coal mine it was found
When they accidently dug too far down
And found the SenSurround.

I still don't know who conceived it
Or where they got the idea,
But there it was in the aisle by the exit sign
A woofer covered in wood
to shake the room when it should.

SenSurround
Down at the bottom
Sensible to ear and sternum
Made the fakeness realistic
When the action went ballistic,
One degree shy of sadistic
And the world first spoke to me in SenSurround

If I could swim under the water
without having to breathe,
If I could follow the trail to the ocean floor
I think I'd know what there'd be
Down there waiting for me.

SenSurround
Down at the bottom
Sensible to ear and sternum
Made the fakeness realistic
When the action went ballistic
One degree shy of sadistic
And the world first spoke to me in SenSurround



Unforgotten

Don't have to be
Your only one
Don't have to be
Something from now on
Don't have to be
What I want at all

Just have to be
Unforgotten

I know your new boyfriend
And you belong with him
The truth is my one regret
The truth is my one regret

Just have to be
Unforgotten
Just have to be
Unforgotten

Don't have to know
What I'm thinking now
Don't have to know
Better days than these
Don't have to know
Where I've been so long

Just have to be
Unforgotten

I know you're leaving now
If I had figured out

Just how to be
Unforgotten
Just how to be
Unforgotten



We've Got A World That Swings

Up at dawn and
Sleepy and yawning
Still the taste of wine
Then I remember you're mine and
I've got that a world that's fine

What's before me
Routines that bore me
Punch the clock at 8
But what a lucky guy I am
I've got a world that's great

Atom bombs
Cape Canaveral and false alarms
Half the universe is up in arms
So I flip a little dew until I'm holding you

What's the hassle
I'll buy the castle
We can live like kings
If we're together forever
I've got a world that
You've got a world that
We've got a world that swings

I'd like to take you on this wild, wonderful venture
Fly like a kite through space
No strings
I don't want to lose that bell that rings
I've got a world that
You've got a world that
We've got a world that swings

(We've got a world that swings)
We've got a world that swings
(We've got a world that swings)
We've got a world that swings
(We've got a world that swings)
We've got a world that swings
