Track Name: Hey, Jody
Hey, Jody - Birk/Bosmans © 2012

Black bike, with the seat low
No tassels for her ride
She pulls up to the corner store
Just as I step outside

Hey Jody, how you doin’
She says she’s doing fine
She asks if I wanna hang out
I say sure I’m just killing time, killing time, killing time

Red hair, dreamy green eyes
And her mysterious smile
She’s walks with a little limp
It just adds to her style

She’s cool and she knows it
Though she is nice to me
She’s one of those girls who
Just know how to be free, to be free, to be free

Hey, Jody
What you doin’ lately?
How’d your life turn out anyway?
I remember what you told me
Just like it was yesterday

Hey, Jody
Hey, Jody
Hey, Jody
Hey, Jody
why don’t you waste some time, waste some time, waste some time on me?
Hey, Jody
Track Name: Roller Coaster of Love, Hate & Tenderness
Roller Coaster of Love, Hate & Tenderness - Birk/Bosmans © 2012

Climbing high to the top, looking down the other side
White knuckles as I hold on for the ride
Fear and excitement mixing up my insides
Here comes the heart attack

Been here before, it seems so brand new
Maybe because this time I'm in it with you
The twist and turns are making their debut
There's no turning back

It's a roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness

Some days it's like our love will never end
Those are the days I believe in love again
Other days you treat me like an enemy, not a friend
I can't do anything right

Trapped by my love for you, I confess I'm obsessed
What is the answer to this never-ending test
I try and try but my best ain’t enough, I guess
But oh your dizzying heights (echo – baby turn out the lights?)

It's a roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness

You've got me wondering what comes next
I'm never ready for your moods

But I'll jump right back in line
I’m gonna jump right back in line
I'll cut to the front of the line for another ride on your
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness

Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Roller coaster of love, hate and tenderness
Track Name: Love & Devotion
Love & Devotion - Dave Birk © 2012

Love…
Devotion…

I get this feeling when I think of you (when I think of you)
That I'm not the only one
You've led down this road of seduction and mystery
Is this your history?
Tell me, what do you know of my heart's emotion?

I'm not some child with a simple crush (this is serious)
And I won’t be swept away
When you try to undo me with your charm and promises
I need what's real, instead
Show me, what do you propose for the intricate instability of…

Love and Devotion
Is all I ask from you
And all you'll get from me
Is my heart’s

Love and Devotion
A single destiny
A probability
Of love and devotion

You've got me yearning I admit it's true (to be with you)
But I won’t be falling fast
I measure the danger of loving so carelessly
The vulnerability
Hold me, and my fragile spirit lies at the mercy of your…

Love and Devotion
Is all I ask from you
And all you'll get from me
Is my heart’s

Love and Devotion
A single destiny
A probability
Of love and devotion

While I may sound somewhat skeptical
My soul finds you wildly delectable
All my reasoning aside
No defenses can I find
To protect me from love’s hypnotic twist
I’m so powerless to…

Love and Devotion
Is all I ask from you
And all you'll get from me
Is my heart’s
Love and Devotion
A single destiny
A probability
Of love and devotion
Track Name: Speed Queen Mystery Date
Speed Queen Mystery Date - Dave Birk © 2012

Every Monday night I do my laundry at 8 P.M.
At the Speed Queen Laundry on the corner of Union & Penn
You know the one where the sign’s always flickering
With the retro plastic chairs in bright orange, yellow, and green

On my final load when my last quarter makes an escape
Mr. Washington rolls to a perfectly unreachable place
I lay my pride on the floor, everyone’s staring at me
Then the pretty girl says, “hey, you can share a dryer with me”

Speed Queen mystery date
55 minutes to determine our fate
I need a shot of courage and some fascinating things to say to my Speed Queen mystery date

She’s flying out tomorrow and her laundry couldn’t wait
I throw my hands in the air and say “yeah, typical, that’s just great”
She’s asking me, “what’s wrong” and I keep playing it straight
I pout that she leaving me after only just one date… “I think you’re my soul mate”

Speed Queen mystery date
55 minutes to determine our fate
I need a shot of courage and some fascinating things to say to my Speed Queen mystery

Speed Queen mystery date
55 minutes to determine our fate
Life unfolds with the choices we make
Life unfolds with the chances that we take yeah
My Speed Queen mystery date
Speed Queen mystery date
