Track Name: Square-Up Reel
[instrumental]
Track Name: Irwin The Accountant
He's in Chicago. He's out the window. He's right beside you, writing down every dollar that you spend. He's Irwin. Irwin the accountant.

Ignore him. Don't ignore him. Pay attention to him. Don't pay attention to him. He's Irwin the accountant, and he's oh so ordinary. He's not that ordinary. He's everywhere.

He's under the bed. He's over your head. He's right beside you, writing down every dollar that you spend.

Ignore him. Don't ignore him. Pay attention to him. Don't pay attention to him. He's Irwin the accountant, and he's oh so ordinary. He's not that ordinary. He's everywhere.
Track Name: Dry Lots and Red Ones
Can we not mention his name tonight? Would that be alright? I'd like to celebrate. We all know that we've won.

Wait, wasn't it great the way they all lined up outside? Why haven't we played this town before?

So drink until it's light! This time we've done it right. I propose a toast to dry lots and red ones.

Wait, wasn't it great the way they marched around with swords? We'll make front page this time for sure.

This is great. And you're all great. And in the end, this is how it should be. This is great. And you're all great. And in the end, this is how it should be.

Wait, wasn't it great the way they all came back in droves? But what can we do now for our encore?

This is great. And you're all great. And in the end, this is how I want it to be.
Track Name: Waiting
Thank God it's raining. Now they'll start to come inside. To wait it out. And we'll get to charge them then. Just wait and see. Things will turn around. Just trust me.

I know you want to pull out. Cut your losses, call it a day. I'm just asking for one more chance. Just wait and see. Things will turn around. Just trust me.

This is all I ever wanted. This is all I've ever asked for from the start. This is all I've ever needed. Can't you see that we just need to wait and see? Things will turn around. Just trust me.

Just wait and see. Things will turn around. Just trust me.
Track Name: Ridin' the Roller Coaster
Oh, oh, you ought to go ridin' the roller coaster. It's thrilling to ride with your beau by your side, ridin' the roller coaster.

Up and down and around the curves, there's not a thrill that you'll miss. Every time that the coaster swerves, you'll always wind up in a kiss.

Oh, oh, oh what a go, holding him ever closer. You snuggle up tight with the thrill of delight, ridin' the roller coaster.

Up and down and around the curves, there's not a thrill that you'll miss. Every time that the coaster swerves, you'll always wind up in a kiss.

Oh, oh, oh what a go, holding him ever closer. You snuggle up tight with the thrill of delight, ridin' the roller coaster. With someone you love by your side.
Track Name: Elliot Forbes x 10^23
My cue: just before the private part. My cue: just before the private part.

I've done this a hundred times, a million times before. I've done this a hundred towns, a million towns before.

The nurses will back me up as I take center stage. Reciting the lines exactly as written on the page.

But I'm not really here, I don't exist at all. There's a couple dozen more of me across the state.

I traded my name for the spotlight and the fame of the road. But the smell of stale popcorn won't come out my hair.

Who needs identity? It's just a job. So get back to work. Get back to work. Get back to work.
Track Name: Ginger Prince is not Shirley Temple
Somehow they got it in their heads that she would be a star. I don't think they realize that cuteness only goes so far. Try as they might, Ginger Prince is not Shirley Temple. Try as they might, Ginger Prince is not Shirley Temple.

(All 42 inches of the Delinquent Angel can't measure up to America's Princess.)

What's so hard to understand? We all know the Skid Row clan won't buy into that kind of fluff. This is kid stuff. This is kid stuff. This is kid stuff. This is kid stuff.

You're wasting your time. You're wasting your time. You're wasting your time.

They're both cute little girls. They're both in the movies. And that's about where the similarities end.

Ginger Prince is not Shirley Temple. Ginger Prince is not Shirley Temple.

You're wasting your time. You're wasting your time.
Track Name: Lullabye
Everyone's insane. Everyone's gone crazy but us. Here comes the rain. Hear the thunder storm roll in.

Maybe I'll still love you. Close your eyes, just turn out the light. In the morning I may, but tight now I don't want to fight.

Everyone gets wet. Everyone is caught unprepared. It's not all our fault. It's not all our fault.

Maybe I'll still love you. Close your eyes, just turn out the light. In the morning I may, but right now I don't want to fight with you.
Track Name: Pihsnamwohs
"You gotta tell 'em to sell 'em." But what happens when they won't listen to you? Do you pack up your bags and head home to Ohio? Or do you sizzle the steaks a little bit higher? You're the man with the plan and a martini in your hand, so we'll raise our glasses high to the spectacle. It's above the fold. With your name in bold. How much did that set us back? Do you think we'll make it back?

Cauze your mom never told you. And your dad didn't either. But fourteen years is way too long to be in love with just one film. And your mom never told you. And your dad didn't either. But fourteen years is way too long to be in love with just one film.

You've had one too many (One Too Many). Maybe she shoulda said no (She Shoulda Said "No!"). You're not the Prince of Peace any more (Prince Of Peace), instead you're halfway to Hell (Halfway to Hell).

Because this isn't Lansing (Karamoja), and there'll be no key to the city (The Secrets of Beauty). The neon in this town (The Rotten Apple) is not for you (Mom and Dad).

So when you change your name to "showmanship" spelled backwards, it's not the same as when you spelled it forwards.

Cauze your mom never told you. And your dad didn't either. But fourteen years is way too long to be in love with just one film. And your mom never told you. And your dad didn't either. But fourteen years is way too long to be in love with just one film.
