Track Name: Sodapop
Mama's got a little bit of baking soda
Mama's got a little bit of baking soda
Mama's got a little bit of baking soda
but she never wait til the people come over
Mama's got a little bit of baking soda


MIss ol Molly oo goddamn she fine
MIss ol Molly oo goddamn she fine
MIss ol Molly oo goddamn she fine
But I don't like when papa buys her wine
MIss ol Molly oo goddamn she fine

She was lick lick lickin on her lollipop
Comin to me
Papa sayin "baby won't you stop? stop callin my name."
You want the love, you want the fame, but baby you don't want no game
Track Name: Sundress
I know the clothes that you sleep in
I fill my coloring book
You have a funny way of teaching
You cannot see the picture you took
You have a pickle jar moment
I want your cucumber slice
You always wait in your sundress
Waiting all your life for the

I want to go out to meet you
just like in 1947
I wanna see that old milkman
I want to sign upi for lessons
From my history books
Sayin "Why did you sleep in?"
There'd be a man at the door
Bottles clingin tires screechin baby

I want to meet your lover
I want to steal your looks
I want to live inside of your mirror
Rip the pages out of your books
I wanna go out to meet you
Come right back to bed
Knowin the love that you had
For that money makin man
Track Name: Golf
They all shared their glasses
Broken english fancied
Everybody drank the same wine
The kids on the rocks
They never had the last bite
Didn't sing it just right

But they didn't have enough
No they didn't have enough love and sin
To get them through the night

The boat's being parked
Make sure to tie the rope tight
Don't ever let it get away
No kids in these parts
We just got the old white waiting for the sun
To change the day

No they didn't take enough
No they didn't have enough
Mediocre meals
To get them through their lives
Track Name: Houses
Doing the most
But waiting til the sun goes down
You hear that strong beat
But it's not enough
Lost you a little after that second house
But found life at the end of the night

And we came together alone
After that sunrise
Put a blanket on you to keep you from the cold
No stayin together no asking what's wrong
No way for you pick up your phone

Waited forever just to hear you frown
About the books that never made you cry
Wanted to quit but never had the timing down
Never lived before it died


And we came together alone
After that sunrise
Put a blanket on you to keep you from the cold
No stayin together no asking what's wrong
No way for you pick up your phone
Track Name: Spring
We're so glad you came
You brought the cookies that you used to make
You know the brown sugar baby
You always love that refrain

I'm not so glad you didn't call
You were yelling at the dogs
'Cause they were barking at the dogs

(then the song jumps in to Purple Flower, Green Flower by Rand. A mix of an original piano piece accompanied by backing vocals with the lead vocals reading different poems by E.E. Cummings)
