Lyrics: City of Subarus

 

 

1. 8 Great Ways

You’ve got one this time, subtract and add the sum

Let her know that she’s the only one

Two you see, hold up and understand

Sing that song and on the other hand

Three they say take down and simplify

Make that call and don’t you wonder why

Four you know cause it’s so obvious

Sweet talk her and let’s do this

(chorus)

You’ve got eight great ways to get the girl you want

Things to do and way to spend your time

Eight great was to get the girl you want

You’ve got eight great ways to get the girl you want

Sweet talk her and all the time you spend

Eight great was to get the girl you want

Next comes five so hey now don’t divide

If you try well, love will multiply

Six no tricks come on and let it show

She’s the one so, gotta let her know

Seven sweet tooth you know you’ve got the brand

Hold her close and take he by the hand

Eight don’t try too hard to make her stay

Give her space but, don’t turn away

(breakdown)

They all say that I don’t know you, but I say that I do

Knee high socks and diet soft drinks

I’m convinced that I love you…..yeah!

 

2. Belinda

Can’t seem to get my mind off you / you look and act like Sailor Moon

If there’s something in a name / and the affect just stays the same

Well then Belinda you won’t ever have to change

Can’t find the words and never will / she hit the room just dressed to kill

If there’s something in a name / and the affect just stays the same

Then Belinda you won’t ever have to change

Don’t say that I won’t turn to you / they’ll never love you like I do

Well if there’s something in a name / and the affect just stays the same

Then Belinda you won’t ever have to change

Then Belinda you won’t ever have to change

Then Belinda you won’t ever have to change

 

 

3. Ticket Tonight

You play guitar better than me / you’re cute, you’re smart and I can’t see why

You’d wanna be with me

We’ll get comatose on Listerine / gonna make you laugh and make you scream

There’s still some things that I don’t see / but I still got the time

Got a ticket tonight – oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

Got a ticket tonight – oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

Got a ticket tonight – Got a ticket tonight – Got a ticket to

oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

What you see and what you do / you’re beautiful and I’d love you to say

It’ll be ok

A party dress of gingerbread / my number one / my glamour deb

Forget the stars and kiss me dead / cause I’d give up for you

Got a ticket tonight – oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

Got a ticket tonight – oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

Got a ticket tonight – Got a ticket tonight – Got a ticket to

oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

Jeff – Jeff – Jeff – Jeff – Jeff – Jeff – Jeff – Jeff

We were both the last to know / up came the moon and sucker DJs go

Everybody say “ho”

What can I say I like your smile / you’re sentenced to walk down the aisle

Roll the stone and rock the file for Stephen J. Cannell

Got a ticket tonight – oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

Got a ticket tonight – oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

Got a ticket tonight – Got a ticket tonight – Got a ticket to

oh – oh – oh – oh – oh

 

 

4. Crush This Town

I know you and there’s no middle ground / you act very fast and I meant to say

Those things that you do well they still astound / if only I’d asked maybe you’d have stayed

It’s safe to assume that you’re through with him / if she’d never called I’d have done the same

All bets that you placed set and doubled in / they’re tied up in counts that you won’t explain

I’ve known you to see-saw to get around / the same things that crush you they crush this town

Between you and me we should settle down / it’s my heart so please don’t you crush this

Expect me to live with your hand-me-downs / the songs that I wrote for you / you exchanged

I won’t be the one who will wear your crown / it’s stupid to think that you’d ever change

I’ve known you to see-saw to get around / the same things that crush you they crush this town

Between you and me we should settle down / it’s my heart so please don’t you crush this

I’ve known you to see-saw to get around / the same things that crush you they crush this town

Between you and me we should settle down / it’s my heart so please don’t you crush this

it’s my heart so please don’t you crush this

it’s my heart so please don’t you crush this

it’s my heart so please don’t you crush this

 

 

5. Godspeed

Godspeed well it’s just what you need – oh no

Godspeed well – you move me

Godspeed well it’s just what you need – oh no

Godspeed well

I’ve seen how this adds up to you / unassuming attitude well / you see the same things that I do

I know you want me to now

Godspeed well it’s just what you need – oh no

Godspeed well – you move me

Godspeed well it’s just what you need – oh no

Godspeed well

Sometimes I see myself with you / cut-off jeans and tennis shoes / you see the same things that I do

I know you want me to now

Godspeed well it’s just what you need – oh no

Godspeed well – you move me

Godspeed well it’s just what you need – oh no

Godspeed well

I’ve seen how this adds up to you / unassuming attitude well / you see the same things that I do

I know you want me to now

Oh no / you move me

Oh no / you move me

 

 

6. Miss Douglas County

God sent with a spin and a summer dress /at best /well just a local townie

It’s clear you’ve come to make something round here /my dear/the queen of Douglas County

Well I know I hang on every word you speak / and everything you do

I know you simply knock me off my feet / what would you say to “I do”

Do you wanna be rich? / I just wanna be happy

Do you think about me? / Yeah I think about you

Just the same thing / I’m lost and simply ordinary / well gosh I know it’s true

Do we see things the same? / just to say that I love you

Is it something I said? / I say dig-it-up too

Not as stupid / I’m plain and not so less than special

Well beauty queens they do

It’s true that the judges stuck to you /like glue/ well that’s what I remember

Step down when they came to take your crown /in town/ when you were Miss September

Well I know I hang on every word you speak / and everything you do

I know you simply knock me off my feet / what would you say to “I do”

Do you wanna be rich? / I just wanna be happy

Do you think about me? / Yeah I think about you

Just the same thing / I’m lost and simply ordinary / well gosh I know it’s true

Do we see things the same? / just to say that I love you

Is it something I said? / I say dig-it-up too

Not as stupid / I’m plain and not so less than special

But I love Hershey / the rest is up to you

Do you wanna be rich? / I just wanna be happy

Do you think about me? / Yeah I think about you

Just the same thing / I’m lost and simply ordinary / well gosh I know it’s true

Do we see things the same? / just to say that I love you

Is it something I said? / I say dig-it-up too

Not as stupid / I’m plain and not so less than special

And nothing good comes true / but I still think of you

Every word you speak knocks me off my feet

I couldn’t wait to touch your little ass / Your body tastes so sweet (x3)

 

 

7. Actives & Pledges

I move to see you / take one and take two

You set a curfew / something that you would and could do

Actives and Pledges / free falls from ledges

All moons alleges / insincere but they won’t let us

I know that you don’t want me to be

The one who needs you

More than you need me

I know that you don’t want me to be

The one who needs you

Tape loops and toggles / tightropes and throttles

Let’s stay tomorrow / something that you couldn’t swallow

Ten ways to tear us / Judy’s embarrass

Mistakes to scare us / sixty one for Roger Maris

I know that you don’t want me to be

The one who needs you

More than you need me

I know that you don’t want me to be

The one who needs you

 

 

8. The Lives Of Cleopatra

She held him in her heart / her sights on Eddie Fisher

In 1955 showed off the ring / and soon they traded vows

Just two years later well the family was a foursome

The future’s bright / the youngest Todd

Debbie turned and gave her soul away to Egypt

Ignored the warning signs / and lost herself in eye shadow and faith

Well all the while the facts they equaled intuition

The rumors fell and then they spread

They tried to sell her the lives of Cleopatra

Eleven husbands and I’m number twelve – uh huh

No need to tell her / she’ll die as Cleopatra

When Richard left her she was by herself – uh huh

Debbie fell from grace / and woke up decades later

Surprised to find herself replaced by younger starlets on the rise

It seems that times had changed from “Meet Me in Las Vegas”

To Patty Pretty and the Pack

Then strange events occurred at Gary Numan’s wedding

Turned up her social skills and dusted off her resume of charm

The same disease that found her lost in line with extras

Gave Sandra Dee the casting couch

They tried to sell her the lives of Cleopatra

Eleven husbands and I’m number twelve – uh huh

No need to tell her / she’ll die as Cleopatra

When Richard left her she was by herself – uh huh

Flushed and awkward / and a little bit reluctant

When asked of Peggy Lloyd, Betty Jane, Paulette or Lana T.

A past of pin-up girls / myths and bathing beauties

But what became of Myrna Dell?

Reduced to anecdotes / and crowned the queen of Egypt

She took some photographs / hemmed up her skirt / and waited by the phone

Fell back on royalty / and hit the talk-show circuit

Insider do / insider tell

They tried to sell her the lives of Cleopatra

Eleven husbands and I’m number twelve – uh huh

No need to tell her / she’ll die as Cleopatra

When Richard left her she was by herself – uh huh (x2)

 

 

9. Bee Sting Stings

Well it goes without saying / it seems that you’ve chosen sides

For all the things that I told you / I’d trade my blood for my pride

Between the bracelets and tattoos / and all the things that I’ve seen

I just speak to you slowly / it’s just downtown what it means

Got some things that I what to do / she’s the one who turned me blue

Cause you’re one in a million and the bee sting stings

Whenever you’re around you’re everything to me

Cause your one in a million and the bee sting starts with you

As I sat with you poolside / in the swimsuit you hate

You succeeded the moon / you made me speed up and wait

I’ve seen you dance with the devil / I’ve seen you stop on a dime

But whenever you’re around you make my heart beat double time

Got some things that I what to do / she’s the one who turned me blue

Cause you’re one in a million and the bee sting stings

Whenever you’re around you’re everything to me

Cause your one in a million and the bee sting starts with you

Well now I see your intentions / not as clear as you claimed

You let me carry a torch / you knew your feelings had changed

Outside of my hesitation / and your failure to try

You sat me out by the curb / and let the world pass us by

Got some things that I what to do / she’s the one who turned me blue

Cause you’re one in a million and the bee sting stings

Whenever you’re around you’re everything to me

Cause your one in a million and the bee sting starts with you (x2)

 

 

10. Vacation In Christine, ND

We’re on vacation

Well Josie really likes it here

We just relax and we watch Who’s the Boss?

Push Kings on and we can’t help but sing

No chaperones but don’t worry bout us

We’re on vacation in Christine

innocence and aqua sox

mini-skirts and bikini tops

Well Josie says she’ll be on time

In bathing suits there’s not much more we can say

Let’s hit the beach we’ve got just so much to do

We’re on vacation in Christine

Red River surf and I like her smile

We’re on vacation in Christine (x13)
