Track Name: Pavlov
Everytime Pavlov calls
I end up drooling all over the phone
I end up drooling all over my dress
So I've stopped buying nice dresses

Everytime Pavlov calls
I end up drooling all over my dress
So I've stopped buying nice dresses
But I can't stop picking up the damn phone

And I feel lucky as a dog
I feel lucky as a dog
That I've got a man like that calling me

He calls every afternoon and I
I start to salivate
Yeah I start to salivate
Yeah on command on cue

Tell me Pavlov
What should I do
I've got crazy yeah
Crazy over you

He will buy me lemonade
Cause he's got pockets of his own
Yeah he's got pockets of his own
And he knows how to use them

He calls every afternoon and I
I start to salivate
Yeah I start to salivate
Yeah on command on cue

Tell me Pavlov
What should I do
I've got crazy yeah
Crazy over you

I answer your calls
I put on that smile
You bought me my shoes
You stay for a while
You pull on my hair
You tear at my dress
You come on me quick
I clean up the mess

Tell me Pavlov
What should I do
I've got crazy yeah
Crazy over you

Pavlov
There's something about
The way you smoke
In the rain
Track Name: Nothing to Lose
You speak like a mosquito
(Too much hot blood)

Suck my cigarette
(Inhale exhale)

I find it irresistible
(All that hot blood)

Do you remember how we met?

Maybe they’re right, maybe they’re right
Maybe the low road is easier
Maybe they’re right, maybe they’re right
Maybe the real sin is regret

Cause I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose
I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose
I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose

I’m glad I’m not you
There’s nothing to choose
I have nothing, nothing to lose

There’s no good in me
(Dried in the sun)

I’ve burnt all my ways home
(No way back now)

No rest for the wicked
(Are you hungry?)

Nobody wants to be alone

Maybe they’re right, maybe they’re right
Maybe the low road is easier
Maybe they’re right, maybe they’re right
Maybe the real sin is regret

Cause I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose
I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose
I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose

I’m glad I’m not you
There’s nothing to choose
I have nothing, nothing to lose

Gimme gimme gimme gimme
Strong fiction
Gimme gimme gimme gimme
Strong friction
Gimme gimme gimme gimme
Gimme gimme gimme gimme

More more more
More more more
More more more

I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose
I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose
I’ve got nothing and when you have nothing
It means there’s nothing to lose

I’m glad I’m not you
There’s nothing to choose
I have nothing, nothing to lose
Track Name: Chelsea Savoy
Sunkiss wakes me in the morning
I was dreaming of the moon
Or was I dreaming of your face?

I'm holed up in the Chelsea Savoy
Down the street from Chelsea Hotel
Caught a bad mood on the wind
Someone else's sadness on the wind

Wind
Wind

Then there you are at the bottom of my brandy
I take a sip, you're under my tongue
They look at me like I've lost something
Somewhere, somewhen, somehow

This is funny but I couldn't tell you why
This is funny, will someone tell me why?
This is funny but I couldn't tell you why
This is funny, will someone tell me why?

Well maybe I was born on a mountaintop
Maybe I was born somewhere I forgot about
(Maybe I)
Was pressed between two tectonic plates
(Maybe I)
Was baptized by the wind
(Maybe I)
Have brothers and sisters I don't know about
(Maybe I)
Have change a comin'
Cause maybe New York City gave me amnesia
Maybe I have change a comin'

It's funny
How brandy goes to your head

I'm holed up in the Chelsea Savoy
I made my own damn bed
Couldn't afford the Chelsea Hotel
Like the rest of those famous men
Track Name: Beauty Queen
I was born a beauty queen
A beauty queen at seventeen
A beauty queen in high esteem
I was born a beauty queen

My mom and dad take care of me
They say that they’re proud to be
The parents of a beauty queen
A beauty queen at seventeen

They say
You’re so lovely we should put you in a jar
You’re so pretty we should put you in a jar
You’re so lovely we should put you in a jar
You’re so pretty we should put you in a jar

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly
I know why she swallowed a fly
She couldn’t eat her dinner
So she would get thinner

I cut my hair and Momma cried
Looked at me like someone died
Held my hair and howled
“How will someone love you now?”

She said
You’re so selfish we should put you in a jar
You’re so hopeless we should put you in a jar
You’re so selfish we should put you in a jar
You’re so hopeless we should put you in a jar

Daddy says that blood is thick
I’ve got to get thinner
Curl your hair like this
I've got to get thinner
Don’t disappoint me buttercup
You’ve got to get thinner

Bottle me, drink me up
I’m gonna get thinner
Bottle me, drink me up
I'm gonna be a beauty queen
Bottle me, drink me up
A beauty queen at seventeen
Bottle me, drink me up
I'm gonna be a beauty queen
Bottle me, drink me up
A beauty queen at seventeen

If all the blood in my body
Makes me weigh 103
I’d cut myself open and I can be
My target weight of 93

Mom, be proud of me
I'll weigh 93
Like you want me to be
We'll be so happy
Track Name: Goodbye Party Girl
Hello, nice to meet you
I'm the Goodbye Party Girl
I know your exit already
Go on and give it a whirl

I plan ahead
I plan ahead
I plan ahead

Kisses are sweet
Until they're dry
I don't lose my head
I don't sit and cry

I make them cake
I make them cake
I make them cake

Let 'em eat cake
Let 'em eat cake
Let 'em eat cake

I sing

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

I'm an expert party planner
But I couldn't plan for you
It's not temporary
I don't know what to do

You made me pause
You made me pause
You made me pause

You kissed my hand
You kissed my hand
You kissed my hand

You stood and fought
You stood and fought
You stood and fought

You made me pause
You made me pause
You made me pause

I sing

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I'm used to goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

You couldn't have said what I think you said
"Cancel the party, stay in bed"
I think all the sugar is rushing to my head
"Cancel the party, stay in bed
Let's do other things instead
Cancel the party, stay in bed"

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I'm used to goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye

Hello, nice to meet you
I'm the Goodbye Party Girl
I got locked out of the party
By a boy with a pearl
