Sparks : Cool Places (Ron & Russell Mael)

I wanna go to cool places with you
I wanna take you cool places tonite
I wanna go where nobody's a fool
And no one says uh, "hey girl, need a light?"
I want to move like this and that
A minimum of chit chat
I never wanna cool down, cool down, cool, cool, cool
Cool places tonite

I gotta tell you, you're lookin' real good
They let us in so I'm feelin' all right
I like to go where sometimes they refuse
Yeah, I remember last Saturday nite
But I'm feeling cooler now
And they could tell we're cooler now
It's obvious we're cooler now, cooler now, cool, cool, cool
Cool places tonite

I wanna go, I wanna go, etc.

I want to go to cool places tonite
I wanna go to cool places with you
And after that we'll slip out for a bite
A coffee shop, and toast, coffee and juice
And then we'll sleep 'til 5 P.M.
And start it up all over again
I never want to cool down, cool down, cool, cool, cool

I wanna go, I wanna go, etc.


Sparks : Popularity (Ron & Russell Mael)

I like you and you like me a lot
And we do those things that can make us feel hot
Then we join some friends, all of them are all right
And we talk a while, then we climb in our cars

What a night, we all drive into town
Where we'll park our cars, and meet the rest of our friends
At a place that's called, I forget what it's called
But it's really great, and all our friends will be there

Popularity
Popularity

I like you and you like me a lot
And it's nice to be all alone with you too
But it's also nice being out with our friends
Cause they're all all right, maybe that's why we're friends

Popularity
Popularity
Popularity

I feel great, but it's getting real late
So I'll drive you home and you'll slide up real close
I'm so glad we met, and I like you so much
And I'm also glad that I got all those friends

Sparks : Praying For A Party (Ron & Russell Mael)

Saturday nite and time that I go to bed
Daddy goodnite and momma goodnite, it's ten
Don't forget, son, to pray
Anything, dad, you say
I'm gonna pray 'til both my knees are red

Praying for a party, C'mon Lord, C'mon Lord
Praying for a party

All of my friends are praying like praying fools
Send us a little jive and we'll be all right
What do we have to do
What do we have to do
What do we have to do, Lord, to get on through

Chorus

I just can't wait no more
I'm running out that door
God helps those who help themselves to a real good time

Chorus


Sparks : All You Ever Think About Is Sex (Ron & Russell Mael)

Think about the places we've had our little fun
In the church at Christmas, busted by that nun
Then in that museum, beneath the Mastodon
Stating our positions on the White House lawn

Chorus:

All you ever think about is sex
All you ever think about exclusively
All you ever think about is sex, all right with me

Say, do you remember the Dodgers and the Mets
50,000 people saw us and turned red
I'm still not recovered from Saturday's faux pas
When your father came home, saw us, and dropped dead

Chorus

In a world of lovers, we don't love each other much
Fact is, we're too busy to love each other much

Chorus


Sparks : Please Baby Please (Ron & Russell Mael)

I don't know why you treat me this way
I'm a sensitive guy and I'm really in pain
But you're cool to the point of saying "no dice"
Well, I'll never accept it, never accept it
Just think it over tonite
Just think it over for one more nite (oh)

Chorus:

Please baby please
Can't ya treat me better
Please baby please
Can't ya treat me better

I've been making a fool of myself
As the corniest guy in all of L.A.
Sending flowers and candy, the things I detest
But I gotta impress you, gotta impress you
All the things that I've tried
Are all the things that I once despised (oh)

Chorus

No one's worth all the stuff I go through
Only you, only you, only you, only you
You no speakee the language when I get near
And I'm losin' it fast, I'm gettin' weird

Chorus


Sparks : Rocking Girls (Ron & Russell Mael)

Rocking Girls
Just 17
The cutest thing I've ever seen
C'mon baby, rock with me tonite
You're the only girl I ever met named Linda Lou
Maybe that's the reason that I'm so in love with you

See the girl with the red dress on
See the girl with the red dress off
C'mon baby, rock with me tonite
And you're the only girl I ever met who hates "Hey Jude"
Maybe that's the reason that I'm so in love with you

Take a trip around the world
All you have to say is
"C'mon baby" that gets 'em everywhere
I hope I never have to see the doctor 'cause of you
I hope you never have to see the doctor 'cause of me

Oh, Rocking Girls, let's go
You look a little slow
Oh, Rocking Girls, let's go
You still look kinda slow
Oh, Rocking Girls, let's go
You still look kinda slow
Oh, now you're movin' fine
It's instrumental time

Rocking Girls
Just 17
The cutest thing I've ever seen

Rocking Girls, I'm on my knees
Don't get old and don't get mean
C'mon baby, please stay 17

Oh, Rocking Girls, let's go
You look a little slow
Oh, Rocking Girls, let's go
You still look kinda slow
Oh, Rocking Girls, let's go
You still look kinda slow
Oh, now you're movin' great
I think I'll take a break


Sparks : I Wish I Looked A Little Better (Ron & Russell Mael)

Turn out the light, yeah, the light
And I might have a chance
I guess I look slightly worse
Than the Elephant Man
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better

I went to high school
And majored in looking real bad
I got a real ugly mom
And a real ugly dad
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better

Dress for success
That's what they say
I'm such a mess
That there just ain't no way

I know my breath is the sweetest
It really is great
But when I try just to kiss you
You say "better wait"
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better

Dress for success
That's what they say
Gimme some clothes
To slap over my head

Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better

I went to Balboa Island
And laid in the sand
I may be ugly as sin
But at least now I'm tan

Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better
Whoa, oh, oh, I wish I looked a little better


Sparks : Lucky Me, Lucky You (Ron & Russell Mael)

We lie marooned on a tropical isle in the sun
Someday they'll come, take us back with a dumb "welcome home"
Until that day arrives
Lucky me, lucky you
Lucky me, lucky you

I'll lose my tan and the very next day you'll be gone
I'll get a job and I'll marry a marvelous blonde
Until that day arrives
Lucky me, lucky you
Lucky me, lucky you

Maybe the world has decided we died in that gale
We were the ones who they voted most likely to fail
Lucky me, lucky you
Lucky me, lucky you


Sparks : A Fun Bunch Of Guys From Outer Space (Ron & Russell Mael)

We're a fun bunch of guys
And we come from outer space
On the planet where we're from
War is even fun
We're a fun bunch of guys

We're a fun bunch of guys
Here to infiltrate and get a tan
We arrived here from the sky
On that cream pie parked outside
We're a fun bunch of guys

We're a fun bunch of guys
We speak English real good
On our T.V.'s in the sky
Your reruns come in fine
We're a fun bunch of guys


Sparks : Dance Godammit (Ron & Russell Mael)

It's the sound
Of today
Played so loud
You're in pain
I feel good
Really great
As I talk
To my feet
Dance Godammit

Dance Godammit

I get scared
When I'm alone
So I don't
Stay alone
I like clubs
I like girls
I like music
And that's it
Dance Godammit
Dance Godammit

I do leaps
I do splits
I do spins
I do dips
Wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance ?

I get scared
When I'm alone
Ah, don't leave me
All alone
Wanna dance ?
Wanna dance ?
Wanna dance ?
Do you wanna dance ?
Dance Godammit
Dance Godammit
