Track Name: Waterslide
you were waiting for someone you know someone to call your own you were stuck outside the water slide that would not let you go you were stuck outside you can't decide which way you should go
he may not walk like you do
he may not talk like you do
he may not look like you do
that's the voo doo ooh
Track Name: Brainiac
ache oh
weigh them
all your fan's begin again
i know they both
all my friends have labeled
bye brainiac goodbye
i never knew you but i still asked why
synth tone drum rolls
modulate the vocals
always devo, numan and the seagulls
bye brainiac goodbye
i never knew you but i still asked why you had to die
Track Name: Hey You Girl
we don't know the way but we have to agree
i can't believe this has happened to me
the best things in life can not always be free
i can't believe this is happening
hey you girl
i'm in love with you
hey you girl
hey new girl
bring enough for two
hey you girl
