Lyrics

Sweet Nicole

Written By: Sherrie Adams

Oh Sweet Nicole
I carry her picture wherever I go
It’s been 10 years or so
But now she’s in LA all alone

When she was mine
I knew everything all the time
When she was mine
I knew everything all the time

(Chorus)
She doesn’t know herself
She wants to be somebody else
She tries and tries but nothing helps
She doesn’t know herself

Oh Sweet Nicole
She always tells me that I need to grow
And that I don’t know
Anything about the real world

When she was mine
I knew everything all the time
When she was mine
I knew everything all the time

(Chorus)
She doesn’t know herself
She wants to be somebody else
She tries and tries but nothing helps
She doesn’t know herself

The Munchies

Written By: Sherrie Adams

(chorus)
I-I-I-I-I-I
Ooo wee oo woo
I got the munchies
Woo oo oo

When you wake up tired
Go back to sleep
Don’t go to school and try out
For the f---ing team
You know there’s always tomorrow
To get what you need
I got the test you can borrow
And it’s for free

(chorus)
I-I-I-I-I-I
Ooo wee oo woo
I got the munchies
Woo oo oo

You don’t need good grades
To make minimum wage
Junior college is high school with ashtrays
There ain’t that much to ya
Don’t get too deep
I’m watching Adam Carrolla
So move your f---ing feet

(chorus 2x)
I-I-I-I-I-I
Ooo wee oo woo
I got the munchies
Woo oo oo

It’s gonna be alright
Gonna get it tonight

(chorus 2x)
I-I-I-I-I-I
Ooo wee oo woo
I got the munchies
Woo oo oo

Stale Life

Written By: Sherrie Adams

I don’t need someone to hold me
I can hold my own just fine as you can see
I don’t need some one to love me
I love myself and quite frequently

I just need something deep
To break up the monotony of

(Chorus)
(Stale life) Got to get it where I want it
(Stale life) It just doesn’t feel right
(Stale life) Take it to another level
(Stale life) Deeper every time

I don’t need to read a magazine
To tell me how much better my life could be
I don’t need designer times with generic minds
There are some things I just will not compromise

I just need something deep
To break up the monotony of

(Chorus)
(Stale life) Got to get it where I want it
(Stale life) It just doesn’t feel right
(Stale life) Take it to another level
(Stale life) Deeper every time

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
