Track Name: Superman Can't Move His Legs [single]
SUPERMAN CAN'T MOVE HIS LEGS

skipping streets in springtime
chasing sunlight on my bike
and I could chalk the sidewalk
any color that I liked

blowing dandelions
fairground rides and climbing trees
and mother's kiss or candy
for every injured knee

there are no action heroes out there
to come and save the world from harm
Superman can't move his legs
and I can't use my arms

Superman can't move his legs

Grandma's cake and candles
magic bean plants in a jar
shared baths and bedtime stories
from Prickly Leg to Matthew Star

Sleeping Beauty's sleeping
I’m not the boy I used to be
surrounded by the bad guys
the only fairy here is me

there are no action heroes out there
to come and save the world from harm
Superman can't move his legs
and I can't use my arms

Superman can't move his legs

I don't know much but
if I've learned something from the past
it's: girls go for assholes
and happy endings never last

there are no action heroes out there
to come and save the world from harm
Superman can't move his legs
and I can't use my arms

Superman can't move his legs
Track Name: Ting-A-Ling
Ting-A-Ling

so here we are all stuck between
these Fire Island men of means
you must believe me when I say
I like you, Jimmy Dean

let's take that Spyder for a ride
please, don't say you came by bike
I know a game that we could play
and it goes like

ting-a-ling

they are not very hard to please
all swishy-swashy, maître d's
see what them Brackett boys can do
for you
for me

us users kiss a lot of rear
but look at them, those leering queers
they have no clue we see right through
let's get out of here to

ting-a-ling

you're not the brightest but you're right
why go through life with one hand tied
behind this back of mine

drive, just drive

let's get out of here
there is so much out there
we are not the only ones
Track Name: 10 Things To Win You Over
I peek at you in secret
I ignore you just in time
I giggle like a schoolgirl
I convince you that I'm fine

I’d do anything and more to make you mine

I curse your taste in lovers
I judge your lack of spine
I put you down in public
I manipulate, malign

I’d do anything and more to make you mine

I don’t want to make you feel bad, but it's true
there is no one who can make me feel this good

no one else but you

I'll stop giving signals
I'll start reading signs
I'll stop being selfish
I'll step back in line

but I'll sing you these love songs until you're mine
