Track Name: Bad News Brothers
Momma said we need a hobby so we picked up smokin'
(We) never use a rubber cuz they always end up broken.
We go to the church for the taste of cheap wine.

We got the kind of faces no mother could love.
Bad tattoos in places you don't want to think of.
You say we're worse than bad. Well, that's just fine.
---verse---

We make piss taste smooth and sweet.
We're the mold to your meat
---pre-chorus---

(Bad News Brothers)
We're the reason why you lose
(Bad News Brothers)
We're the rich man's blues
(Dog-faced lovers)
We just can't help but say that
today's a good day for bad news.
---chorus---

The day we were born, Papa said we looked old.
The plaque on our teeth was the closest we had to gold.
We got no lovers or friends, just lice and fleas
---verse---


We're the reason why you drink.
Don't swim, just sink (to our level)
---pre-chorus---

---back to chorus---

Sons of Satan need the Devil's daughters
We'll be the fever to your hot and bothered.
So come on down, so come on down to the
dark and dirty South.
Like a bitch, we're the itch that never leaves.
We rip the heart right off of your sleeve.
Honey, don't worry.
Why you in a hurry to
run back home up North?
---other verse---


Drink up
---bridge/pre-chorus--

Nah nah-nah-nah-nah, nah-nah ladi-dadi-da
Bah-bah-boom Bah. Bah-ooga. Muh-a-e-a-e-oogah.
---bridge chorus 2x---

(juh-boo-boo)
Boom. Pow
Boom. Pow.
---transitionary bridge---

We make piss taste smooth and sweet.
We're the mold to your rotten meat.
We're the reason why you drink.
Don't swim just sink.
---pre-chorus---

(Bad News Brothers)
We're the reason why you lose
(Bad News Brothers)
We're the rich man's blues
(Dog-faced lovers)
We just can't help but say that
today's a good day for bad news.

We're the worst, we're the worst
2x
We just can't help but say that
today's a good day to be bad in the worst way
So shut up and make way for bad news.
---last chorus...
Track Name: Filthy Feline
In a mean world of mice and fleas and no Band-Aids to cover your knee,
Lies a raggedy feline or rather a tiny lion.
Her breath's spoiled from sour milk. Her coat's not exactly smooth as silk.
She sifts through the trash to feast on apple cores, peach pits, and grease.
She preys on those with awful woes who live in soiled pantyhose.
She feels like life's a bitch when she...can't scratch an itch.
She can't deny the glee she gets when her prey screams “SAVE ME”.
No one has ever escaped her...
---verse---

Claws.
The worst of it all,
Pinned down with your face in the dirt.
Can't get up to crawl.
---pre-chorus---

(Goddamn) Filthy feline with blood on her claws.
(She) takes impeccable care licking murder off her paws.
Such an ugly scowl
Make you screech and howl.
She's the filthiest feline with blood on her claws.
---chorus---

Ev'ry hump gave her a litter and with ev'ry batch made her bitter.
So she walked her kittens down the street to test the theory if cats always land on their feet.
Tossed them off the bridge by the scruff of their necks to see her babies fly.
It could be worst. They could be under her...
---verse---
---pre-chorus---
---chorus---

(Goddamn) Filthy feline with blood on her claws.
(She) takes impeccable care licking murder off her paws.
Such an ugly scowl
Make you screech and howl.
She's the filthiest feline with blood on her claws.
Hungrier than swine who eats her mice raw.
Ugly but divine despite her flaws.
The filthiest feline.
---last chorus---
