I'll be back

Pull my finger

Sign us up

Hands of gods

Quick single



Who you starin' at?

Dance to the music

Ice Ice Baby

Oh, you got one too?

Let me show you how

Riding in cars with boys


What might have been

Billions of blue blistering barnacles


In stitches

Do ya feel lucky, punk?

No cavities

Something in my eye

Sky high

Am I forgetting something?


Belly rub

Up in the air

I'm gonna get you

I know what you're going to say

Do the boogie woogie

Hit and run


When we were kings

Hear no evil

Does that hurt?

That tickles

In your face

Don't let go


My kingdom for a miracle

Up goes the finger
