Track Name: Dr. Who
"Dr. Who"
music & lyrics by Lana Peck

Chorus:

He's an alien traveling in space in a blue wooden box with a number you can't trace
when he comes passing through let's run away with Dr. Who

(chorus 2-first x only)
Who is the man, who what's-his-face
you think he's the player, the player on first base
well, clearly you don't have a clue; you should watch Dr. Who

Verses:

If your planet's in trouble or whatever be the case
the cybermen attack and your timeline is erased
he'll know just what to do; I'd go ask Dr. Who

He's really not a man; he regenerates
he's got two hearts that none can penetrate
many have tried to get through; to steal the hearts of Dr. Who

Chorus

if you meet a creature; his lips are like a squid
he holds his brain in his hand; you'd know it if you did
you have just met an Ood; I know cause I watch Dr. Who

but if you meet a Dalek, run don't hesitate
they roll around killing humans yelling "Exterminate!"
and they may try to kill you too; just to get to Dr. Who

Chorus

if you see a statue of an angel, she's not what you think
don't turn your back, don't look away; don't you even Blink
she wants to suck the life out of you; aren't you glad you watch Dr. Who

Did I mentioned Cybermen, they march around in troops
they don't really kill you (they just take your brain & nervous system...
stick all in a metal suit
a nightmarish thing to do; it only happens on Dr. Who

Chorus

if you're in a 51st century library; don't let your shadows touch
when they melt your flesh, you won't like it very much
if you happen to have sonic screw(driver); you might be saved by Dr. Who

there was this episode it took place in 1941
there was a dead boy stalking around with a gas mask for a face going
[spoken] "Are you my mummy? Are you my mummy?"
it's creepy and really cool; you should watch Dr. Who

Chorus

Tom Baker's cool, Davison is neat
David Tennant's a pretty boy; Matt Smith is really sweet
no matter which one you choose; they're all really Dr. Who

Track Name: Monday Sunday Funday (Live at Don't Tell Mama)
Monday Sunday Funday

Woke up this morning feeling pretty drained
All that weekend sun had gotten to my brain
So I called out from work with a slight migraine
Added minor stomach discomfort, best not to over-explain

Then a thought occurred to me…
Now that I have a whole day to myself…
I could make a Monday feel like a Sunday
I could make a Monday a Sunday a fun day

Then a thought occurred to me…
Now that I have a whole day to myself…
I could be tackling the list, tackling the list, tackling the list

I could be writing a new song, getting laundry done, learning Mah-jongg
I could be making scrambled eggs, shaving both my legs, knitting spider webs

But what about my Monday, my Sunday, my Funday

I should be… tackling the list, tackling the list, tackling the list

I should pay my credit card, mow the neighbor’s yard, eat a tub of lard
I should buy a Chia Pet for men I haven’t met on the internet

Hey! What about my gift card, my gift card from Amazon
I still got a gift card, a gift card from Amazon
I could buy a book about writing a new resume
After today, I may be needing one anyway

Cause I should be tackling the list, tackling the list, tackling the list
I could crumple up the list, crumple up the list, I’m getting really pissed
I could crumple up the list, that f*cking Bucket List, I’m slitting both my wrists

And after getting nothing done, not having one bit of …Fun
I can’t believe it’s already 4 o’clock
And I made a Monday feel like…a Monday
And I guess I’m gonna need a day off!

Track Name: I Wish Love Had a Cushion Beneath It
I wish Love had a cushion beneath it
So when you fell in and got out again
it wouldn’t leave a bruise
Instead I’ll wear extra padding and a parachute

making my preparations en route
expecting nausea and heart palpitations
I’d pack ginger and a bag of fruit

I wish Love had a cushion beneath it
So when you fell in and got out again
it wouldn’t leave a bruise oo oo ooo

Track Name: Sweet Severed Head
Well, some might call her a thing of dread
but don't you believe it
there's not a vicious hair on her head
They'll write a new chapter for the book of the dead
I found the sweetest severed head

Seven pounds never makes a sound
just kinda gurgles a bit when I toss her around

until her headless half is found
we smile we laugh and joke about
how she might look on the neck of a giraffe
or atop of a bamboo staff
yeah, she's that kooky

she's a sweet severed head
yeah, she's the sweetest severed head

Track Name: Cupcake for My Birthday
Cupcake for My Birthday

I bought a cupcake for my birthday
vanilla frosting; they’re out of chocolate
I found a candle; half a candle
the wick is burnt; hope I can get it lit
I found it way in the back of the junk drawer
must’ve saved it from a time before
a time before when I had friends

seems no one has remembered
it’s that time of year
and my birthday’s lost in December
between the holiday cheer

Oh, sad ol’ me
oh, sad ol’ me
and I’m still getting older
oh, sad ol’ me
