Seven Nation Army

Length: 3:52

Release: 2003

Opening Lyrics:

I’m gonna fight ’em all
A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back
They’re gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I’m talking to myself at night
Because I can’t forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message coming from my eyes
Says, “Leave it alone”
Don’t wanna hear about it
Every single one’s got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the Hounds of Hell
And if I catch it coming back my way
I’m gonna serve it to you
And that ain’t what you want to hear
But that’s what I’ll do

Fell In Love With a Girl

Length: 1:50

Release: 2001

Opening Lyrics:

Fell in love with a girl
I fell in love once and almost completely
She’s in love with the world
But sometimes these feelings can be so misleading
She turns and says, “Are you alright?”
I said, “I must be fine ’cause my heart’s still beating”
“Come and kiss me by the riverside, yeah”
“Bobby says it’s fine, he don’t consider it cheating now”
Red hair with a curl
Mello-Roll for the flavor and the eyes for peepin’
Can’t keep away from the girl
These two sides of my brain need to have a meeting
Can’t think of anything to do, yeah
My left brain knows that all my love is fleeting
She’s just looking for something new, yeah
Said it once before but it bears repeating now

Icky Thump

Length: 4:14

Release: 2007

Opening Lyrics:

Yah-hee, icky thump
Who’d-a thunk?
Sittin’ drunk
On a wagon to Mexico
Her hair, what a chump
And my head
Got a bump
When I hit it on the radio
Red-head señorita
Lookin’ dead
Came to said,
“I need a bed” en español
So I gave a drink of water
I’m gonna sing around the collar
Well, I don’t need a microphone
Icky thump, with the lump
In my throat
Grab my coat
And now it’s reckon
I was ready to go

We’re Going To Be Friends

Length: 2:20

Release: 2002

Opening Lyrics:

Fall is here, hear the yell
Back to school, ring the bell
Brand new shoes, walking blues
Climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we are gonna be friends
I can tell that we are gonna be friends
Walk with me, Suzy Lee
Through the park and by the tree
We will rest upon the ground
And look at all the bugs we found
Safely walk to school without a sound
Safely walk to school without a sound
Here we are, no one else
We walked to school all by ourselves
There’s dirt on our uniforms
From chasing all the ants and worms
We clean up and now it’s time to learn
We clean up and now it’s time to learn


Blue Orchid

Length: 2:37


Opening Lyrics:

You got a reaction
You got a reaction didn’t, you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue
Something better than nothing
Something better than nothing, it’s giving up
We all need to do something
Try and keep the truth from showing up
How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?
How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?
How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?
