Track Name: Cunningham Park
Cunningham Park is a school with a future inside
Cunningham Park is a school where the children have pride

We've got reading, writing, and arithmetic
We've got teachers, with CPAK, who will make things click
We've got P.E. and E.S.L. and music

Cunningham Park is a school with a future inside
Track Name: Christmas on the Planet of the Apes
It's Christmas time on the Planet, on the Planet of the Apes
(cha cha cha, cha cha cha)
So sing a song for the monkeys on the Planet of the Apes
(cha cha cha, cha cha cha)

Oh, little monkey, don't shed a tear
Oh, little monkey, just give a cheer
And sing a song of Christmas hope
And sing a song, don't be a dope

It's Christmas time on the Planet of the Apes, apes, apes
Track Name: Ramen
Boil water
Add noodles
Let it cook
Add package
Then pour and eat

Ramen ramen ramen and Cup-a-cup-a-noodles
Ramen ramen ramen and Cup-a-cup-a-noodles
You can eat and eat and eat and eat and never get bored
Of ramen ramen ramen and Cup-a-cup-a-noodles

Pour the water in the cup
And nuke it
Then stir and stir and stir
And stir and stir and stir
And stir and stir and stir
And eat

Ramen ramen ramen and Cup-a-cup-a-noodles
Ramen ramen ramen and Cup-a-cup-a-noodles
You can eat and eat and eat and eat and never get bored
Of ramen ramen ramen and Cup-a-cup-a-noodles
Track Name: On Line
I like to go online every day, in my spare time
I like to go online every day, in my spare time

Every week day, after school
I like to go online
Going on is really cool
I wish I could do it 'til nine

I like to go online every day, in my spare time
I like to go online every day, in my spare time

Why I like it, I don't know
You can't distinguish friend from foe
'Cause you can't see anyone's face
Or whether they're lying when they say they play bass

I like to go online every day, in my spare time
I like to go online every day, in my spare time

But remember kids:
Don't give you name, address, or email out while you're online
And don't talk to strangers
But, most of all,
Have fun!

I like to go online every day, in my spare time
I like to go online every day, in my spare time
I like to go online every day, in my spare time
Track Name: Election Day
Can't wait 'til Election Day
I'll vote for our newest leader
(Go inside the booth to vote)
Voting is for everyone
I mean, everyone who counts
(Who will win? It's up to you!)
Let's all join hands and vote!

I saw a billboard while driving in my car
It said, "Vote for so-and-so"
I smiled
I cheered
I got a life again
I have a feeling this one is gonna be great!

Can't wait 'til Election Day
I'll vote for our newest leader
(Go inside the booth to vote)
Voting is for everyone
I mean, everyone who counts
(Who will win? It's up to you!)

At the polls we gather 'round
My friends and neighbors, check the ballot in the proper place
Vote for the candidate that you deem worthy
Or whoever paid you the highest bid

Can't wait 'til Election Day
I'll vote for our newest leader
(Go inside the booth to vote)
Voting is for everyone
I mean, everyone who counts
(Who will win? It's up to you!)
Let's all join hands and vote!
Track Name: Reagan's Ghost
I was talking to Reagan's ghost
He said some things I hadn't thought of
In a long, long time

I thought of the things that Reagan brought up
Trying to think of how he could've found out
I thought of the things that Reagan brought up
Trying to think of how he could've found out

"Would you mind if I took a little bite of your soul?
Or could I wrap this paradigm to go?
It'd make a nice breakfast
Cold and lifeless"

Arms crossed, huge desk...
"You know why you're here now, don't you?"
Tall woman, stern look...
"Yes."

I thought of the things that Reagan brought up
Trying to think of how he could've found out
I wiped out the things dead Ronnie brought up
He stared at the stars until I caught up
Track Name: Every/SumBody
Every Body wants Sum Body
Every Body needs Sum One

Me and my friend were floating through town
Hyper nuclear subwoofer sound
My thought radio picked up this tune
Crank your dial and I'll thought send it to you

Every Body wants Sum Body
Every Body needs Sum One

Today's the day of the Fleboi race
So I put on my favorite Jarvox face
Six pack of water and a bottle of air
Sat down in time to say the national prayer
Six jet boosters roared, the game had begun
A ninety-million mile race to the sun

Every Body wants Sum Body
Every Body needs Sum One
Every Body wants Sum Body
Every Body needs Sum One
