Track Name: Love Is An Experiment
Last night my baby's hands were getting cold
Last night my baby's lips were getting old
She says I'm cool, she says I'm so funny
And she taught me what patronize means
She's just sixteen and hot damn ain't she lovely?

Well, you know it's true
It ain't irony
And this attitude
Is just good timing
Don't you know this love is an experiment?
This love is an experiment

My baby built a house in Guadeloupe
And I'd volunteer too if I wasn't in school
She scared me with her self-esteem
She really loves me but she's so naive
She's just sixteen and she reads Dostoevsky

Well, you know it's true
It ain't irony
And this attitude
Is just good timing
Don't you know this love is an experiment?
This love is an experiment

You know she loves me, you know she loves me
She said she's crazy, she's crazy 'bout me
And I try not to hold it against her
You know how I love to depend on her
And I haven't tried it yet
But if I did you know I'd bet that we'd be fine

Well you know it's true
It ain't irony
And this attitude
Is just good timing
Don't you know this love is an experiment?
Yeah this love is an experiment
Track Name: Elena, You Were Right
Well, we're making fun of them 'cause they're being oh-so-gay
But Elena gets a crepe, so for one more poem, we'll stay
That's when I make a joke on the mic, but nobody laughs
Oh but I don't care 'bout these poor coffee-shop brats

Elena, you were right
We'll probably start to fight
But I'm still getting on that flight
Because...

I wanna lose my virginity
To my girlfriend in Germany
It's high time I leave SLC behind

I wanna lose my virginity
To my girlfriend in Germany
In three weeks she'll get sick of me
Yeah, Elena: you were right

San Francisco's got quite the music scene
They play tag in their cars, but she's not talking down to me
Three weeks in Germany: one dude and three chicks
But Frau Piotter won't let me crash their senior trip

Elena, you were right
We'll probably spend the night
But I'm still getting on that flight
Because...

I wanna lose my virginity
To my girlfriend in Germany
It's high time I leave SLC behind

I wanna lose my virginity
To my girlfriend in Germany
In three weeks she'll get sick of me
Yeah, Elena: you were right

Well, I'm saying it's a privilege and they're saying they both feel bad
Oh but I feel entitled 'cause they didn't bat an eyelash
That's when Hannah starts to make a joke, but nobody laughs
So just leave me alone, I've spent too many weekends in drag

Elena, you were right
We'll probably start to fight
But I'm still getting on that flight
Because...

I wanna lose my virginity
To my girlfriend in Germany
It's high time I leave SLC behind

I wanna lose my virginity
To my girlfriend in Germany
In three weeks she'll get sick of me
Yeah, Elena: you were right
Track Name: Life Is Fine
(lyrics based off of the poem "Life Is Fine" by Langston Hughes)

I went down to the river
I set down on the bank
I tried to think but I couldn't
So I jumped in and sank

I came up once and hollered
I came up twice and cried
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I would've sunk and died

I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground
I thought about my baby
And I thought I would jump down

I stood there and I hollered
I stood there and I cried
If that elevator hadn't a-been so high
I would've jumped and died

So since I'm still here living
I guess I will live on
I could have died for love
But for living I was born

So though you may hear me holler
And, girl, you may see me cry
I'll be dogged sweet baby
If you're gonna see me die

Life is fine
Fine as wine
Life is fine, fine, fine
Fine as wine
Track Name: Andrew Maguire Learns the Value of a Dollar
I won't pretend I know how to provide
But I'm prepared if you want me to try
I wanna buy you expensive clothes
I want you coming to my rock 'n' roll shows

And it's ok if you make a scene
As long as you make sure to do it with me
You could be one hot mess
And I'll still love you to death
'Cause that's my favorite side of you to see

And if I had my own way I could always learn something new
I would spend every day getting closer to you

Ain't no lover like the one I got
Ain't no lover like the one I got
Ain't no lover like the one I got that's right

I won't pretend like I know how you feel
Trying to cry ain't got no sex appeal
I wanna take you on a sunday drive
I'll make you laugh and then I'll make you mine

And if this art project's all that I have
To prove for once I didn't cut any slack
Then I'll just keep learning German
And you make furniture
'Cause there ain't no way we can take it back

And if I had my own way I could always learn something new
I would spend every day getting closer to you

Ain't no lover like the one I got
Ain't no lover like the one I got
Ain't no lover like the one I got that's right

'Cause she's got an ethic in her vanity
She's so entitled but she ain't hard to please
An't no lover like the one I got that's right

She works so hard
She gets so sad
I tell ya, she's the only girl I'd ever have
Time to step up
And be a man
Lest I fall in love again

Ain't no lover like the one I got
Ain't no lover like the one I got
Ain't no lover like the one I got that's right

'Cause she's got an ethic in her vanity
She's so entitled but she ain't hard to please
An't no lover like the one I got that's right
