Chicken Cheese & Beer Chicken, Cheese, and Beer (And a whiff of carnality) Chicken, Cheese and Beer (It’s total debauchery) Your night on the town Fades into a hazy dream When you wake up, you start to scream “Why did I do it? What have I done?” You do it again Do it again Do it now! Chicken, Cheese, and Beer (no return to normality) Chicken, Cheese and Beer (It’s total insanity) Your night on the town Fades into a cul-de-sac Within a suburb of your mind “Why did I do it? What have I done?” You do it again Do it again, Do it now!

I’ve lost all my perspective Yeah you broke me down Good thing I had my fun I’m never throwing in the towel Still on the radio On the stereo system On the T.V. set Even on the world wide web I’m comin’ to your town Gonna party you down Baby one last time Get in line When you touch that dial That’s when I come alive and I’m cruising through the waves Soundtrack to your days These times they sure are strange Have I been left behind? I don’t know what I’m doing but Baby it’s alright Alright Still on the radio On the stereo system On the T.V. set Even on the world wide web I’m comin’ to your town Gonna party you down Baby one last time Get in line

Exile in suburbia Exile in suburbia Forever trapped in this Cul-de-sac I’m an exile in suburbia I used to have a place in town Then one day it turned around They sent me all across the land Back to live with Mom and Dad Exile in suburbia Exile in suburbia Forever trapped in this Cul-de-sac I’m an exile in suburbia Hey now it ain’t all that bad I know that it’s no bachelor pad Finished basement, frosty beers We’ll play foosball For years and years

Everyone I know is a celebrity chef They all have their own shows I haven’t got mine yet You used to be a punk rocker Now you’re rockin’ the foi gras Sear me some foi brah Everyone that I know is a celebrity Eating the uni every night With American Cheese and it just ain’t right You can’t put kimchi on every dish Everywhere I go my taste is put to the test Do you have another ten shows? If not I won’t be impressed You used to be a punk rocker Now you’re rockin’ the foi gras Sear me some foi brah Everyone I know is a celebrity Eating the uni every night With American Cheese and it just ain’t right You can’t put kimchi on every dish

Open road and no regrets Underneath the red sunset Driving by the ol’ Grand Canyon At the wheel and I’ve no companion, no Soon I will be there…. I checked out of the Tropicana Had my slice of Americana, baby Now I’m on the road to Tijuana That’s the place I know I gotta be Floating in the motel pool Nothing I would rather do Pretty girls they all surround me I’m so grateful you all found me here But soon I will be there I checked out of the Tropicana Had my slice of Americana, baby Now I’m on the road to Tijuana That’s the place I know I gotta be

First Day of School The very first day of school You wanted to be oh so cool Things didn’t go so well Kids they can be oh so cruel Please Mama don’t you leave me Stay by my side I cannot bare to see you say goodbye I don’t know anyone here I’m all alone I cannot wait to go back home Back home Learning your ABC’s Easy as one, two and three Until the kids start to tease Alone in the cool autumn breeze Please Mama don’t you leave me Stay by my side I cannot bare to see you say goodbye I don’t know anyone here I’m all alone I cannot wait to go back home Back home

Though Secret Agents are on T.V. This open mic will be the death of me I need an antidote for my ennui My Amsterdam Blonde I used to be oh so fond Now I’m falling for you Sapphire Blue She left me shaken and stirred Fame and fortune are on their way But how much more of this can someone take? I need an antidote Won’t you give it to me straight My Amsterdam Blonde I used to be oh so fond Now I’m falling for you Sapphire Blue

Rays of sunlight hit the water Breaking waves I sip my soda in the sand Archie comics and The Beach Boys Paint a picture in my mind Dunvegan time stays still Come September I don’t wanna go back home I can’t remember I don’t even want to know Under the moonlight and the stars Shining brightly Fires burning on the hill Win-win, Winnebago Ocean in your backyard At Dunvegan time stays still Come September I don’t wanna go back home I can’t remember I don’t even want to know

Look it’s closing time Now you are free So punch out the clock and leave your Second family The weekend’s here at last So kick up your feet Crack open a cold one because It’s on me I know sometimes it’s hard Stepping outside yourself Could you give me a reason why? One good reason why. Cos it’s okay to dance So why not take the chance? Just enjoy yourself It’ll be alright There’s no need to be so anxious All the time The weekend’s here at last So kick up your feet Crack open a cold one because It’s on me
