Liz Phair Bang! Bang!

Ooh, let me put it all back

This runaway train is runnin’ out of track

No more tricks in the old trick sack

The minutes tick by till the watch face turns black

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

On the phone

But you’re not at home

And the trees are blown

By the wind

Please let me say

I had a hard one today

I never could feel okay

Alone

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

I wanna go bang

Liz Phair Don’t Hold Yr Breath

I don’t have what it takes to stay with you

And I’m leaving in under ten days, it’s not what I’d planned

But anyway, you know, by and large anywhere I go

I won’t find anyone who loves me enough to make you look bad

All the cars on the road are driving away from here

But I’m still looking under my nose to see who I am

But anywhere I go, standing at any kind of show

I won’t find anyone who’ll tell me what I need to know

That’s not how it’s done

But anyway, you know, by and large anywhere I go

I won’t find anyone who loves me enough

If I ever pay you back

If my money and wallet’s intact

I’ll probably be in a box lying down

Loosely suited in black

If I ever pay you back

If my money and wallet’s intact

I’ll probably be in a box lying down

Loosely suited in black

Loosely suited in black

Loosely suited in black

Liz Phair H.W.C.

Give it to me, don’t give it away

Don’t think about what the others say

My skins getting clear, my hairs so bright

All you do is fuck me every day and night

You’re my secret beauty routine

Na, na, na, na, what my body has seen

I am lookin’ good and I’m feeling nice

Baby you’re the best magazine advice

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

I’m gonna pull you back down between the sheets

Everything is fresher when the day is sweet

In the morning light when you’re already on the phone

Face it, one of these days

Without you I’m just another Dorian Gray

It’s the fountain of youth

It’s the meaning of life

So hot, so sweet, so wet my appetite

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Face it, one of these days

Without you I’m just another Dorian Gray

It’s the fountain of youth

It’s the meaning of life

Baby you’re the best magazine advice

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Gimme your hot white cum

Your hot white cum

Liz Phair Big Tall Man

I’m a big, tall man

I cut the grass

My left eye hurts

I am waiting and reading parts

I can be a complicated communicator

Zeus and Athens

Florida driveway

Asphalt and tires

Sand and the beach, rocker panel

Headlights in the dark…

I am drag racing

Fog and the distance beyond it…

Boats and the quiet morning noises…

I’m walking the shoreline

A beer and a cigarette…

A bug with twitching antennae

A button-up short sleeved shirt…

Yes, I’m careening down!

Winding the canyons, now!

Yes, I am broadcasting myself!

Liz Phair Elvis Song

Everyone’s talking ’bout Elvis

‘Cause it seems like the thing that we do

Elvis is walking around listlessly

Seems he can’t even die if he wanted to

It’s a bad business to be in

You don’t get thanked and you don’t get paid

It’s a hard world to be in with

And to end with, and to think about leaving behind

Exhuming the body in Memphis

Waiting five hours to get into Graceland

Is this anybody’s idea

Of a good time or a good joke?

Airport biographies are usually true

Fame and fortune took its’ toll

He’s not the king of rock and roll anymore

He’s just a junkie redneck

Pull a sheet over your head

Fold your arms across your chest

Lie back in bed

You can call folks constantly tomorrow

Oh, oh, everyone’s talking ’bout Elvis

‘Cause it seems like a thing that we do

Elvis is living too fat and slow now to care

What we say about him

Picking up hitchhiking Elvis’s

Christening babies at the foot of his grave

He was watching TV and laughing to himself

He just had to tell someone how he did it

Elvis, be good to me

Elvis, be true

Elvis, I love you

Elvis, be true

Elvis, be near me

Elvis, be mine

Elvis, come back to me

Please, Elvis, be fine

Everything’s coming up

Roses

Everything’s coming up

Elvis

Everything’s coming up

Roses

Everything’s coming up

Elvis

Elvis

Elvis

Elvis, be true

Liz Phair Extraordinary

You think that I go home at night

Take off my clothes, turn out the lights

But I burn letters that I write

To you, to make you love me

Yeah, I drive naked through the park

And run the stop sign in the dark

Stand in the street, yell out my heart

To make, to make you love me

I am extraordinary, if you’d ever get to know me

I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary

Average every day sane psycho

Supergoddess

Average every day sane psycho

You may not believe in me

But I believe in you

So I still take the trash out

Does that make me too normal for you?

So dig a little deeper, cause

You still don’t get it yet

See me lickin’ my lips, need a primitive fix

And I’ll make, I’ll make you love me

I am extraordinary, if you’d ever get to know me

I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary

Average every day sane psycho

Supergoddess

Average every day sane psycho

Supergoddess

See me jump through hoops for you

You stand there watching me performing

What exactly do you do?

Have you ever thought it’s you that’s boring?

Who the hell are you?

I am extraordinary, if you’d ever get to know me

I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary

Average every day sane psycho

Supergoddess

Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho

Supergoddess

Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho

Supergoddess

Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho

Liz Phair Perfect World

What a pretty live you have

Oh boy, it’s a pretty life

And I would need a map

Just so I could navigate the back yard

Home is very ordinary

I know I was born to lead a double life

And when I find it, I know I’ll make sense of me

I want to be cool, tall, vulnerable and luscious

I would have it all if I’d only had this much

No need for Lucifer to fall if he’d learn to keep his mouth shut

I would be involved with you

I know the girls

That live inside your world

Just sitting next to a mortal makes their skin crawl

Liz Phair Shatter

I know that I don’t always realize

How sleazy it is messing with these guys

But something about just being with you

Slapped me right in the face, nearly broke me in two

It’s a mark I’ve taken heart

And I know I will carry it with me for a long, long time

I don’t know if I could drive a car

Fast enough to get to where you are

Or wild enough not to miss the boat completely

Honey, I’m thinking maybe

You know, just maybe

I don’t know if I could fly a plane

Well enough to tail spin out your name

Or high enough to lose control completely

Honey, I’m thinking maybe

You know, just maybe

Maybe

Liz Phair Can’t Get Out Of What I’m Into

The things they say are getting harder to take

But I can’t get out of what I’m into

And the jokes they tell are meant to wish me well

But I can’t get out of what I’m into

‘Cause it’s a steady job

And it’s the only thing that makes me money

And it gives me something to laugh about

‘Cause my real life ain’t fucking funny

The looks they give are starting to make me sick

But I can’t get out of what I’m into

And the lines they try might as well be from a guy

But I can’t get out of what I’m into

‘Cause it’s a steady job

And it’s the only thing that makes me money

And it gives me something to cry about

‘Cause my real life ain’t fucking funny

Yeah my real life ain’t fucking funny

Ooooh Lord, why have you forsaken me?

Ooooh Lord, why have you forsaken me?

The things I have to do would make a slut blush blue

But I can’t get out of what I’m into

I figure two more years, then I’ll go back to queers

But I can’t get out of what I’m into

‘Cause it’s a steady job

And it’s the only thing that makes me money

And it gives me something to laugh about

‘Cause my real life ain’t fucking funny

Ooooh Lord, why have you forsaken me?

Ooooh Lord, why have you forsaken me?

Ooooh Lord, ooooh Lord

Ooooh Lord, why have you forsaken me?

Liz Phair What Makes You Happy

But don’t worry, mom. I met him in a restaurant

And all this time I’ve been getting to know him

He’s got an ex-wife in Pasadena, and sometimes she’s a mess

To deal with, but mostly we’ve been living here

Uninjured…

There’s a silence, and she says, “Listen here young lady, All that matters is

What makes you happy, but you leave this house knowing my opinion won’t

Make you love me if you don’t care to.”

But mom, I’m sending you this photograph, I swear

This one is going to last and all those other bastards

Were only practice!

I feel the sun on my back…

I smell the earth in my skin…

I see the sky above me like a full recovery…

She said, “Listen here young lady, All that matters is what makes you happy,

But you leave this house knowing my opinion It won’t make a difference if you’re not ready.”
