Lyrics

Happy Anniversary (ver. 8)

The Santa Anas were unbearable as we biked
So we stopped at the seats reserved for BMI
I thought it strange you were wearing a six-inch crucifix
But the food never came, and you spat in my face
Now I'm too sad to sing

Happy anniversary
Bombs are dropping in the street
I'm your personal psychopath
I'll count the raindrops until you come back

Recognizing I could never produce that sound
You were just asking my opinion to shut it down
Now I'm the small antelope down at the watering hole
It's a marriage of love, but we're totally bummed
Yeah yeah, what's wrong with that?

Happy anniversary
Bombs are dropping in the street
I'm your personal psychopath
I'll count the raindrops until you come back

Let Me See the Smile

Let me see the smile... that way
'Cause you've been frowning... every single day
I know that you ...inside
...
And let me see the smile

Peppermint

Peppermint tastes so good; don't need no sugar
She's always ...
...
'Cause she's special to me, and she's naturally sweet
I love my Peppermint

takeoff hi @ 157.mp3

I don't wanna see you looking that way again
'Cause ...
Everybody ...
'Cause I really...
Oh-oh, ...

Whip It Up (ver. 5)

Whip it up if you... what's good
Whip it up... understood
... that way
'Cause it's all over town, and ...
Oh-oh, and whip it up
