Track Name: We Can Be Friends
Well I don't know, I don't know about you
But I think, I think I like the way that I like you
And I hope, I hope you'll say you like the way you like me, too
And I hope that you'll take, that you'll take my hand
And I hope that you'll say that we can be friends
And I hope that you'll go well maybe on a walk with me

And we'll walk, walk, walk 'til our feet are tired
Then we'll sing, sing, sing until our throats are dry
And we'll drive, drive, drive all night until the sun lights up the sky
Yeah we can walk, walk, walk until our feet fall off
And we'll sing and shout 'til we can't make a sound
And we'll drive, drive, drive all night until the sun lights up the sky

Well I don't know, don't know where I went wrong
'Cause I just came here, I came to sing a song
But I think that maybe you and maybe I could get along
Well I want to tell you, but I think I won't
So I hope you tell me, but if you don't
Well that's par for the course, but honey if you do


Then we can walk, walk, walk 'til our feet are tired
Then we'll sing, sing, sing until our throats are dry
And we'll drive, drive, drive all night until the sun lights up the sky
Yeah we can walk, walk, walk until our feet fall off
And we'll sing and shout 'til we can't make a sound
And we'll drive, drive, drive all night until the sun lights up the sky

Maybe, baby, maybe with you
Track Name: I'm Not Cute Like Jennifer Lawrence
I don't have my act together
I dress inappropriately for the weather
I've been fired several times
But I think that I'm okay

Sometimes I get easily mad
Most times I get easily sad
And I get panic attacks
But I think that I'm okay

I don't have a five year plan
And I don't have a two year plan
But I've got a six month plan
And I think that I'm okay

I hate washing pots and pans
I only have one pair of pants
And I still haven't figured out
What to do with my hands

I'm not cute like Jennifer Lawrence
I'm not handsome like Jon Hamm
I'm not funny like Tina Fey
But I think that I'm okay
Track Name: This Is as Folk Punk as I Get
I was never good at first impressions
And I'm not that great at second ones either
But I hope that I've made a good impression, or at least
That I get another chance to

'Cause it's not like I lack the self confidence
To get up and talk to a girl
It's that I lack self awareness, and I like self control
And only self destruct when things are going good
Track Name: My Mom Told Me That All My Songs Were Sad
I'm not Daniel Johnston, and I don't think that I could be
Quite as clever or as ill, or ever half the man as he
But I still have brought a song to sing and I hope that it brings
A smile to your face, and when you leave tonight, I hope you still like me
I hope you still like me

Maybe Daniel was right, and dying's how we get respect
But I don't think that I'm quite ready to quit breathing just yet
Although my mom told me that all my songs were sad and made her cry
But if we sing them all together, even if we cry, honey maybe we'll still smile
And I hope you still like me
Track Name: This One's for the Cops!
Three cheers for the cops, three cheers for the cops
They keep us alive, they keep our cities safe
White, Latino, or black, they treat you just the same
So three cheers for the cops. Hip, hip, hooray!

And all my gay and trans friends also know there is no end
To a cop's love, a cop is your best friend
So three cheers for the cops, they've come to save the day
Three cheers for the cops. Hip, hip, hooray!

Last spring in Cleveland, they shot a man on West 6th
Though he committed no crime, you know he probably deserved it
Back in '10 in Detroit, they shot a little girl while she slept,
Patted themselves on the back while her grandmother stood there and wept
So three cheers for the cops, they've come to save the day
Three cheers for the cops. Hip, hip, hooray!

On Monday May 12, 2014
Pierce County, Washington Sheriff's Deputies
They murdered a man, while he shouted "Help, call the police!"
With nothing but there batons and their egos and a false sense of authority
So three cheers for the cops, they serve and protect you and me
Three cheers for the cops, thank God for police!

Three cheers for the Seattle Police
Three cheers for the CHP
Three cheers for the Alameda County Sheriff's Department
Three cheers for the NYPD
Three cheers for the Cleveland Police
Three cheers for the cops
Hip, hip, hooray!
