                                  "i missed the bus"

Get up at 5 o'clock to go to work at 9o'clock
It takes me an hour to slick my hair up but why
Why do i always miss the bus

ch. i missed the bus, i missed the bus again
      i missed the bus, i missed the bus again

So what made you miss the bus?

Were you up late last night?
i was up late last night.
Where you watching t.v.?
i was watching t.v.
What kind of t.v.?
and i saw it
Well son that's no excuse
For what?

Though i am watching the best t.v.

                                   "Rotten Banana Legs"

Can't pacify what your soul has denied with material things
now i know why you can look me in the eye
with your plastic face
vacant eyes-teeth a gleam


ch. i never wanted to be half as cool
if you only knew who you were to be
so much for friends 
hope your live life to the end because you're too far gone to see


no one to blame yeah it's always the same 
you can find no fault with you 
soon you will see in your life with degree 
if your dreams come true Ken and you!-malibu!

ch.




                             "Take a look"

take another bow and wipe the sweat off your brow
smiling to the crowd they are in love with you 
believe in what you will all the minds you want to fill
smiling to  yourself you are in love with you 
take a look you might not like what you see 
what do you think you know 
something great it goes to show 
you can't resist the fatal blow or change what's wrong with you 
i tried to change myself to accomodate your doubts
ignoring all along you were in love with you 
take a look you might not like what you see


                                   

                    "i'm in love with a girl named Spike"

there is a girl named Spike from DeGrassi High
she had a baby when she was real young
her best friend is s skinhead chick
she knows an asian boy named Yick
and Katlyn she is very chic
but i'm still in love with a girl named Spike

i don't write love songs 
in fact they make me very sick
but Spike the girl from DeGrassi High
she's truley one cool chick
she has the best t.v. show
better then Beverly Hills 90210
and Shannon Daugherty well she's o.k.
but i'm still in love with a girl named Spike
