Lyrics

Hey Cute Girl

Written By: Michael Jaguar

Hey cute girl, hey
Hey cute girl, hey!
I just want to play with you
Hey cute girl

Hey cute girl, hey
Won’t you come on over to play?
I just want to play with you
For the rest of the day
For an overnight stay
For a roll in the hay, cute girl
Cute girl, hey!

Girl you know you’ve got it going on
Doing your laundry at the Motel 6
On the TV talking your politics
Passing me by as I sit here and flatpick
Hey cute girl, hey!

What you giggling at?
Could it be
That I’m really funny as all that
In my spurs and my cowboy hat?
Hey, cruel girl

Hey cute girl
Won’t you pass on by
Got no other reason
To be sitting all alone outside
Just hoping to see your face
Just hoping that you’ll happen by this place
I would wait for you
At the depths of outer space
Just to say
Hey martian girl

Hey cute girl
What’s behind that smile
Such a complex statement
In such an unsophisticated style
Is it me
Or are you a prophet of the coming age?
Hey cute sage

Hey cute girl
Just about to pass
It’s not your looks I’m interested in
It’s not your walk
It’s not your perfect little sass
It’s just that
You could be the one
Can’t just let you go by
That might just make me cry
Hyperventilate and die
At your side
Let me lie

Girl you know you’ve got it going on
Bouncing around on your pogo stick
Popping out from all of your motionless sidekicks
Shining bright starring in the the latest nudie flick
You’re a truly dirty girl

Hey cute girl
What’s behind that smile
Do you give a second thought
To your perfectly unorganized style
Or do you just know how to be
Are you the one for me?

Hey cute girl
What’s beneath that dress
Will I ever get to know
What it’s like to lie upon your breast
And to be with you as one
And to know that the game is won
And to have nowhere to off and run
Are you the one for me cute girl?

Putting it Back Together

Written By: Michael Jaguar

You’re breaking my heart
But I’m putting it back together
I should have known from the start
That it was doomed to be a failed endeavor
I thought that with the strength of my charm
I could muscle your affection from you
But now I’m all out
And I just can’t believe
I ever thought I could have loved you

[Chorus:]
So now I’m calling all my friends
And I’m putting the band back together
‘Cause I can’t do it alone
But together it’s a storm we can weather

I registered for yoga
And I signed up for a Swedish massage
I’ve got a haircut on Tuesday
And on Wednesday I’m at the Polish sweat lodge
I’m shopping new religions
And I’m putting on all kinds of aires
And I’m buying new shoes
To go with my new matching socks and underwear

(Chorus)

I signed up on the internet
To go out on an internet date
I lied and said that when I’m not hang gliding
I like to finger paint
I’m joining peaceful rallies
To protest against modernity
And I’m going back to college
Only so as to rush a fraternity

(Chorus)

You’re breaking my heart

Gonna Make You Mine

Written By: Michael Jaguar

I’m gonna make you mine
 
Since you’ve been coming around
I've been on my best behavior
(Little girl, you know I do it for you baby now)
Since you’ve taken interest in me baby
Things are getting deeper and deeper, don’t you feel it?
(Little mama, you know there there's no stopping it now)
 
A girl needs what a guy needs
And a guy wants what a girl wants
So let’s give each other what we’ve got to give
I don’t love when I don’t feel
But when something comes around
And it feels so real
I’m just not giving up this time

I’m gonna make you mine

Since you’ve been making eyes
I’ve been trying, trying to take it in stride
Dignified, flow with the tide
But now I’m out to sea
Since you’ve been jerking my chain
Purple haze is going straight to my brain
It’s like a freight train on cocaine
And now it’s headed for me
 
A girl needs...

I’m gonna make you mine

Not gonna pine
Not gonna wait in line
Not giving up this time
I’m gonna make you mine

Sad Little Creature

Written By: Michael Jaguar

You’re a sad little creature
And it makes me sad
To see you always pretending
That you’re happy and glad
To be in the company
Of all these fawning men
I know it must be kinda hard
That I’m not your kind
I even think about it
Myself sometimes
But there’s nothing I can do
I’ve given everything I’ve got

Just to convince you
That I’m right for you
And you’re right for me
But all that you can do is laugh
‘Cause ever since you
I’m always blue
I’m always green
And all on your behalf

I tell myself it just isn’t right
Every girl on the block is equally out of sight
You’re the girl next door
What have you got over them?
I’m at the bar
I’m out on the town
I try to get out
Try to get around
But again and again
In the back of my mind
Is the same conversation
For the ninety-ninth time

I convince you...

I know you’re not the girl for me
Should have believed you when you told me so
But by that time I was already in too deep
I’m holding onto you, and I just can’t let go
I’m prying one by one your memories from my mind
I’m trying to make some sense of all the madness since you
But it’s just too pleasant dreaming of you all the time
And how I’d hold you if I only could convince you

I know you’re not the girl for me
And long, long ago
That was plain as can be
But that was before this nonsense took over me
I’ve got twice your years
And only half your smarts
You like bulky guys
With simplistic hearts
But it’s not a rational thing
Against my better judgment and reasoning

I try to convince you...

I just gotta convince you
That I’m right for you
And you’re right for me
And you can go ahead and laugh
‘Cause ever since you
I’m reassured
That someday you’re gonna see
That it’s in the stars and we can just sit back and relax

Lipstick on a Pig

Written By: Michael Jaguar and Jason Warshof

it’s the same old pig
you can take it for a stroll in the afternoon
it’s the same old pig
if it’s primped or if you leave it in the nude
it’s the same old pig
you can take it for a walk in the evening light
it’s the same old pig
in a bow or in a bonnet tied up tight

it’s the same old pig
you can take her for a walk, around the block
it’s the same old pig
if it’s prime or if it’s ordinary stock
it’s the same old pig
run her round the racetrack like a thoroughbred
it’s the same old pig
just be wary when you go to place your bet

i’m so angry, i’m so angry, i could just squeal
i could just scream all night
and waddle through the mud with you

it’s the same old pig
you can march it in procession down the avenue
it’s the same old pig
in an evening gown or in a three-piece suit
it’s the same old pig
pair it with a beauty queen side-by-side
it’s the same old pig
doesn’t matter if it’s pulled or if it’s fried

it’s the same old pig
recites a virgil epic and a shakespeare sonnet
it’s the same old pig
call it governor and put lipstick on it

it’s the same old pig
send her out to classrooms next to bush and quayle
it’s the same old pig
say “potato” and then watch her flop and flail
it’s the same old pig
make it so her sty looks out across the sea
it’s the same old pig
and then have her run our foreign policy

it’s the same old pig
tie her up in bows and in the most expensive garments
it’s the same old pig
take her to a bash at the interior department

it’s the same old pig
throw everything at her but the kitchen sink
it’s the same old pig
that pig will never blink, charlie,
that pig will never blink!

it’s the same old pig
enlist her when your candidate is certainly a goner
it’s the same old pig
heat your branding iron and slap “V.P.” on her

it’s the same old pig
throw everything at her but the kitchen sink
it’s the same old pig
that pig will never blink, charlie,
that pig will never blink!
