Track Name: Hipster Princess
She read Alan Ginsberg
through bifocals she didn't need
she played a vintage fender jaguar in her dream.

She had a red umbrella
a floral hanky in her hair,
he took one look at her and he fell in love right there.

And she played and she played with her turntable
hit the triple perc bong like a queen
she was the very first hipster princess to come on the scene.

Too shy to speak to her
he was a new age feminist man
so he bought her Jim Beam Honey and they held hands.

She barista'd down on Broadway
he came the next day at noon,
and while she made him espresso he stared at her tattoos.

So she took him to a horror movie at midnight,
when the credits rolled they ordered a Lyft
but they didn't want the night to end without a kiss.

So she asked him inside the apartment
she didn't like to take the stairs alone,
reassured him she was independent and then she turned off her phone.

And she played and she played with her turntable
hit the triple perc bong like a queen
she was the very first hipster princess to come on the scene.

And she played and she played with her turntable
hit the triple perc bong like a queen
she was the very first hipster princess to come on the scene.
Track Name: Sugar Water
Yesterday I dreamt I had you, my way in our bed and it felt brand new.
Liberated not placated or abated, satiated, that's what I want to do.

Baby when we're hanging out, tryin' to keep my tears from fallin' I don't wanna love no one else but you.
But baby when we're hanging out I can't get what I want to, why can't I let go with you.

Ba, ba, ba, bada, bee da be my sugar water, sugar water.
Ba, ba, ba, bada, bee da you taste like sugar water, sugar water.
Baby, sweetie, honey pie be my sugar water, sugar water.

Talked to lots of friends, they're all ashamed to admit it, they don't cum with their boyfriends.
Older women tell me your secrets, lets speak freely, I want to take pleasure from them.

Baby when we're hanging out, tryin' to keep my tears from fallin' I don't wanna love no one else but you.
But baby when we're hanging out I can't get what I want to, why can't I let go with you.

Ba, ba, ba, bada, bee da be my sugar water, sugar water.
Ba, ba, ba, bada, bee da you taste like sugar water, sugar water.
Baby, sweetie, honey pie be my sugar water, sugar water.

Baby you want me I know, baby you want me I know but it's freezing in here.
Baby I want you you know, baby I want you you know, but I'm crazy my dear.
Baby you want me I know, baby you want me I know but I'm jealous my dear.
Baby I want you you know, baby I want you you know, but I'm crazy my dear.

Baby when we're hanging out, tryin' to keep my tears from fallin' I don't wanna love no one else but you.
But baby when we're hanging out I can't get what I want to, why can't I let go with you.

Ba, ba, ba, bada, bee da be my sugar water, sugar water.
Ba, ba, ba, bada, bee da you taste like sugar water, sugar water.
Baby, sweetie, honey pie be my sugar water, sugar water.
Track Name: 23
Been going to the same coffee shop every day for a while
Watching the same girls behind the bar, tired but laughing
They get you at a time where it feels amazing to make a buck.

Oooh, go on quit that place darlin'
go and get the world girl,
start looking beyond what they want you to see...
Fuck 'B' movies, you don't want to be a goddamn waitress
you do look cute in that apron,
but you don't have to do dirty work practically free.

I used to work at a place like that,
several in fact. They didn't listen, the messed up my hours every week,
made my life a living hell, didn't pay me all that well.
But I was doing it to myself.

Why, why, why did I feel like I needed to be there?
Justify my every action to those bitches...
why, why, why did I feel like my credibility was at stake?
The world doesn't have to break you in, for you to be worth something,
you're already worth something.

Oooh, go on quit that place darlin'
go and get the world girl,
start looking beyond what they want you to see...
Fuck 'B' movies, you don't want to be a goddamn waitress
you do look cute in that apron,
but you don't have to do dirty work practically free.

Oooh, go on quit that place darlin'

Track Name: Skate By
Old black man in a gold minivan
taking a sip from his hip flask.

Stone cold fox back in the day
trumpetin' away, what if growin' up for me goes that way?

Oh, yeah, oh yeah yeah,
taking one day at a time.

Oh, yeah, oh yeah yeah,
so easy to just skate by.

Capers and lox come on a bagel in a box
the price tag is $7.99

You don't go to hell for eatin' well
it's not a crime to save some time.

Sure I coulda ate the carrots in the kitchen babe,
a little less plaque a little less wait gain,
coulda saved a penny for my IRA, it's just today, it's just a fiver okay.

Ha, Ha, Ha

When will I be smarter, when will I see reason? When will I stop beating myself up, when will I quit teasin'?

Oh, yeah, oh yeah yeah,
taking one day at a time.

Oh, yeah, oh yeah yeah,
so easy to just skate by.

Oh, yeah, oh yeah yeah,
taking one day at a time.

Oh, yeah, oh yeah yeah,
so easy to just skate by.
