Ping Pong Gallery - Only Lyrics by Debra Parr

Written By: Debra D. Parr

The summertime flies in size
when I look into her green eyes.
That first night at the Gallery,
I couldn’t help but propose immediately.

Ping Pong
Heart String
Fly to the sky and back.
Moon, stars, sunset.
She's gonna break my heart, I bet.

She stood on the bridge in moonlight,
asked if I missed her last night.
Arm in arm, her lips tasted quiet.
Tell me a big surprise; my gut’s in a riot.

I thought I was lucky. I thought she had a clue.
But, tell me, just tell me, who was fooling who?
We walked hand in hand down Bitter Street.
The way she looked at me made me skip my feet.

Ping Pong
Heart String
Fly to the sky and back.
Moon, stars, sunset.
She's gonna break my heart, I bet.

I’m weak. I’m weak. Really. I don’t dig that deep,
All we did was just go to sleep.
Now she no longer seems to care.
Now her eyes won’t meet my stare.

I’m stepping back; I’m watching my heart.
I think it’ll be a brand new start.
Gonna be flying to the moon and back.
Gotta go. It’s time to pack.

Ping Pong
Heart String
Fly to the sky and back.
Moon, stars, sunset.
She's gonna break my heart, I bet.
She’s gonna break my heart, I bet.
She’s gonna break my heart, I bet.

Missing You Already - Only Lyrics by Debra Parr

Written By: Debra D. Parr

I’m missing you already
Your touch was a bit of heaven
You say you have to leave me
This isn’t gonna be easy
I’m missing you already

You say you have to see the world
You say you have to go now
You’ve got to hit the road again
Someday we’ll meet in between

I’m missing you already
Your touch was a bit of heaven
You say you have to leave me
This isn’t gonna be pleasing
I’m missing you already

We danced in the kitchen
We sang in the dark
Your kisses cry my name dear
Your smile lights my nights

I’m missing you already
Your touch was a bit of heaven
You say you have to leave me
This isn’t gonna be easy
I’m missing you already

We walked by the river
We played in the park
Your look held my face close
Your hand reached for mine

I’m missing you already
Your touch was a bit of heaven
You say you have to leave me
This isn’t gonna be pleasing
I’m missing you already
I’m missing you already

Don't Tell Me You Love Me - Only Lyrics by Debra Parr

Written By: Debra D. Parr

Don’t Tell Me You Love Me

Don’t tell me you love me
I don’t want to know
I don’t want to feel your arms
Just head out the door
Just head out the door!

Don’t come creepin back
Don’t give promises you can’t keep
You’re nothing but a loser
I can’t go to sleep
I can’t go to sleep!

Liar Liar Liar Liar Liar
Put out my fire
Liar Liar Liar Liar Liar
Put out my fire
Liar Liar Liar Liar Liar
Put out my fire

Your time on earth
Was a waste of breath
You screwed me over
It’ll be your death
It’ll be your death!

You lied to me
You cheated with my friend
I don’t want your kisses
This is the end
This is the end!

(softly)

Liar Liar Liar Liar Liar
Put out my fire
Liar Liar Liar Liar Liar
Put out my fire
Liar Liar Liar Liar Liar
Put out my fire

F.M. Scientific American

Written By: Danny Fast Fingers

Beatnik's heart of darkness
Comes in colors painted black
Figures he's a genius
Pats himself right on the back

I am in the warehouse
Looking for mass distribution
Suffering from contusions
Disillusions and confusion

(I say, hey. You with me now James?)

Misdemeanor vacuum cleaner
Total eclipse of the sun
Standing on the side of the road
Talking to a man with a gun

Lack of license plates
seemingly incriminates
For want of a flower in a plastic bag
The CHP is loving me

(Yeah. Loving me like I'm you)

Too much deliberation
can be a sin
Searching for the answer
Looking deep within

Drinking with an albino
Who tells me that he's a wino
Changed the color of his hair
And then he offered me a beer

(Yeah)

(Let's go now)

Mashed potato
calculator
Close the door now
I'll see you later

Abstract
cataract
Hocus pocus
out of focus

Fundamental retardation
Children of the Woodstock nation
Followers of the grateful grunge
The living have much more to give

(Yeah. Give to your local charity)
