LET'S GET BACK
(G. Stefani, E. Stefani, T. Kanal, T. Dumont)

Get back together aah

This is a very interesting situation
I sense a gradual loss of communication
Don't you think I can see you're changing on me

You're heading into a completely new direction
And I am having trouble making the adaptation
Don't you think I can see you're changing on me

Let's get back together
Let's get back forever
Let's get back together
Let's get back
Let's get back together
Let's get back forever
Let's get back together
Let's get back

If I may be so bold by making a suggestion
Please ask yourself why you are making this transition
Don't you think I can see, you're changing on me

Everytime I think of us I just want to make it how it was
Before we had much more
When I think of me and you I just can't believe that we are through
I can't ignore the fact you closed the door

When I think back, we had a beautiful relationship
But I see the future, what's there for me is devastation from you
Don't you think I can see, you're changing on me

Let's get back together
Let's get back forever
Let's get back together
Let's get back
Let's get back together
Let's get back forever
Let's get back together
Let's get back

Back together, back together, back together, back together
Back together, back together, back together, back together

Everytime I think of us I just want to make it how it was
Ah before we had much more
When I think of me and you I just can't believe that we are through
I can't ignore the fact you closed the door

Don't you think I can see
Don't you think I can see
Don't you think I can see
You're changing

Get on back, get on back
Get on back, get on back
Get on back, get on back
Get on back, get on back
Get on back, get on back
Get on back, get on back to
I wanna get back


ACHE
(E. Stefani)

Woke up this morning and felt no too cool - ooh ooh ooh ooh
'Cause every time I tried to make my mouth move - ooh ooh ooh ooh
The pain I'm having is so discomforting
Please make this suffering go away

Wo wo wo wo I told my mom what I was feeling
And how long I've been dealing with it
I knew it was coming, but didn't know how soon
She said I've reached another adolescent monsoon - oon

OOoo Ahh... the pain is tremendous
Why can't I take it like a man
OOoo Ahh... the pain is horrendous
Why can't you lend a helpin' hand

He was a well-educated man, had his degree in medicine
I noticed his hairy hands... he was a very, very hairy man
He looked right down in, shook his head and then said
"these teeth must be pulled right away hey!"

OOoo Ahh... the pain is tremendous
Why can't I take it like a man
OOoo Ahh... the pain is horrendous
Why can't you lend a helpin' hand
OOoo Ahh... the pain is tremendous
Why can't I take it like a man
OOoo Ahh... the pain is horrendous
Why can't you lend a helpin' hand

He turned around, rolled up his sleeve
I rolled my eyes then suddenly
A horrible pain grew, the next thing that I knew
The doc had pulled my wisdom teeth... OUT!
Well along with my teeth my money also left me
As he made out the bill, I was moaning
OOoo Ahh... the pain is tremendous
Where the hell is my prescription.... of codeine?

Ooh but when will I speak, how long until my mouth feels natural?
How long will they bleed, when will they heal, where's the real meal?
How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel?
How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel?
How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel?
How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel? How do you feel?

I feel good... I feel great... there's no pain... there's no ache
I feel good... I feel great... just let me recuperate
I feel good... I feel great... there's no pain... there's no ache
I feel good... I feel great... just let me recuperate

Because the codeine has left me drowsy, leave me be... just let me sleep!


GET ON THE BALL
(E. Stefani, G. Stefani)

Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a blink

Get on the ball if you love your lover
No gesture too small
Tear down the walls if you love her
Just give it your all

Ooo yeah, you've got to tell her she's the only one
Show her, make sure she'll never feel abandoned

Get on the ball if you love your lover
No gesture too small
Tear down the walls if you love her
Just give it your all

Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a blink
Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a blink
Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a blink

Get on the ball if you love your lover
No gesture too small
Tear down the walls if you love her
Just give it your all

Ooo yeah, you've got to tell her she's the only one
Show her, make sure she'll never feel abandoned

There won't be time to even think
So use your mind and instinct
She'll drive you crazy
So don't be so damn lazy

Ooo yeah, you've got to tell her she's the only one
Show her, make sure she'll never feel abandoned

Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a blink
Don't wait too long uh or she'll be gone fast as a blink
Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a blink
Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a blink
Don't wait too long, don't wait too long
Don't wait too long or she'll be gone
Don't wait too long or she'll be gone fast as a...
Get on the ball!


MOVE ON
(E. Stefani, T. Kanal, T. Dumont, G. Stefani, A. Young)

Some chickens crossed the road, straying far from the hen
Five reached the side one step below Zen
One was a female, four were mad-men
Who moved on, moved on moved on
Joined hands and moved on

Standing in line and falling asleep
Building a fence while we're counting the sheep
We'd let you help out but our project's too deep
Move on, move on, move on
Stay awake, just move on

You have to understand that when it comes to making music
We meshed the styles of five alive and intertwined and fused it
Life comes from life and through our strife we strove to make the sound true
Compelled to spell it out (no doubt) in search of what we must do

Our house was too small so we had to move
The neighbors had much doubts so we had to prove
That our soulful dimensions were true to the groove
We, moved on, moved on, moved on
To our house in the middle of the street

Water the music, plant the seeds in the pot
Music's the life flowing through... is it not?
Don't forget your roots, but also don't rot
Move on, move on, move on
Plant the seeds ond move on

You have to understand that when it comes to making music
We meshed the styles of five alive and intertwined and fused it
Life comes from life and through our strife we strove to make the sound true
Compelled to spell it out (no doubt) in search of what we must do

Don't be afraid, let your feelings show
Wear your heart on your sleeve, and let yourself glow yeah
Don't be afraid, let your feelings show
Wear your heart on your sleeve, your heart on your sleeve
And let yourself glow yeah
Ooh yeah yeah yeah yeah...
Don't be afraid, let your feelings show
Let yourself glow yeah
Don't be afraid
Don't be afraid


SAD FOR ME
(E. Stefani, G. Stefani)

Please Miss Fried
He don't mean to be mean
He just needs to leave
He hopes he does not
Cause you inconvenience
Why can't you see?

He said, "please don't be sad for me"

Oh Miss Fried
Please believe you're his queen
He must fight for his dreams
Lovely Miss Fried
He will too miss you
He just needs to be free

He says, "If I should ever cause you to bleed... don't pretend to be naive"
Don't be naive

Don't take him wrong, let him be
Sometimes he feels like he oughta be alone, lone
Don't take him wrong, let him be
Sometimes he feels like he oughta be alone, lone

He says, "Please don't be sad for me,
Please don't be sad for me."


DOORMAT
(E. Stefani, T. Kanal, G. Stefani)

Woo hey! Uh uh - no way
No way complain huh

I'm not your doormat, your floormat
So don't wipe your feet on me
I'm not the only Garibaldi
Well there's more fish in the sea
I'm not your puppy, your goldfish
So don't treat me like a pet
Hey I'm not your butterfly
So don't chase me with your net

I'm not your kneaded eraser
So don't you wear me down
I'm not your sledge, uh sledge hammer
I'm no tool, that you pound
I'm not your blacktop, for hopscotch
So don't jump all over me
I'm not the place where the dogs roam
At the bottom of the tree

Don't you treat me like I have no feelings
Don't you treat me like that, I have feelings

Don't treat me like that
Don't you treat me like that
Don't treat me like that
Don't you treat me like that!

Uh yeah yeah oh oh na uh uh

Woo hoo ooh ooh

I'm not your carefree, nor sugarless
Like the gum on your shoe,
I'm not the ring 'round your finger
Nor am I wrapped around you
I'm not your shoe string, your rope thing
So don't tie me in a knot
I'm not your asphalt, with oil spots
So don't use me as a parking lot

Don't you treat me like I have no feelings
Don't you treat me like that, I have feelings
Don't you treat me like I have no feelings
Yeah feelings feelings feelings feelings huh!


BIG CITY TRAIN
(E. Stefani, T. Kanal, G. Stefani, T. Dumont)

Can you hear that whistle
Loud clackety-clack
Well it's calling to me
The station is where it's at
It's coming again now
Chuggin' down that track
Just check your records
Got all my bags packed

You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true

This time I'll board that train
It won't be long
Check the label on my baggage
Destination in my song
Talk to the conductor
Ooh I save my fare
Yakety-yak for a while
CHOO CHOO!
CHOO CHOO!

You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come
Come get me, come take me
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
I said come get me, take me, to the land where your dreams come true I said
I'm waiting, I'm waiting
Come get me, come take me to the land where my dreams come
Smokestack train is back
That smash attack

Hurry grab my luggage
Hurry grab my bags
It seems the locomotive
Has taken another track
A penny brought by mischief
A penny form of cash
Has been brough up to the railway
We are destined to be a smash!
A smash! Woo!

You will always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true
Always find me waiting for that train to come
Come get me, come take me
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Wrongful manners, tickets for two
I'm waiting for it to show
Ah na na na na na na oh woh woh woh
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
Come get me, come take me
You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through
I said come get me, take me, to the land where your dreams come true I said
Ah then you'll always find me, ah then you'll always find me
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh I said
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oh oh oh oh
Ah wrongful manner na na na na na na...


TRAPPED IN A BOX
(E. Stefani, T. Dumont, G. Stefani, T. Kanal)

Trapped in a box of tremendous size
It distorts my vision, it closes my eyes
Attracts filthy flies and pollutes in the skies
It sucks up our lives and proliferates lies
Trapped in a box

Trapped in a box, four walls as sky
Got a screen for a window about two feet wide
My mind rides and slides as my circuits are fried
No room for thought, use the box as my guide
Trapped in a box

Ooh trapped in a box
Watch the world as it flocks
To life's paradox
And we're all trapped in a box

Oh trapped in a box I'm not alone
I know of others with a box as their home
Light only enters from a crack or a hole
Oh this is not enough for a human to grow
Trapped in a box

Ooh trapped in a box
Watch the world as it flocks
To life's paradox
And we're all trapped in a box

Always wanting a different view
Instant gratification for you
Reality gone with a single click
Just hope that that switch won't stick

Ah trapped in a box my life becomes void
And all of the thought for myself's now destroyed
Controlling my mind, what to eat, what to buy
Subliminal rules: how to live, how to die
Trapped in a box

Ooh trapped in a box
Watch the, the world as it flocks
To life's paradox
And we're all, we're trapped in a box
Ooh trapped in a box
Watch the world as it flocks
To life's paradox
We're all trapped in a box

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
We're all trapped in a box


SOMETIMES
(T. Dumont, G. Stefani, E. Stefani, T. Kanal)

Sometimes sunshine
Does not want to shine on me
And sometimes I find myself blind
At first I cannot see and then I see it's me

I chose a road when I was young
In search of fun temptation won
And all my soul I did surrender
If I had a chance to go back now
Would I redeem my moral vows
Or would I repeat for my own laughter

Sometimes I hide somewhat
Like a bulb behind a shade
And sometimes I ask myself why
Is it 'cause the lights are too bright
Or because my eyes are closed too tight

Sometimes I find myself blind
Don't use my brain don't use my mind
Distorted feelings always leading my way
But I must forgive myself and let the past lay down to rest
And I'll be prepared to face myself in another day - hey

From now on I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved
From now on I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved

Sometimes sunshine
Does not want to shine on me
And sometimes, sometimes
I get lost, I get lost

I chose a road when I was young
In search of fun temptation won
And all my soul I did surrender
If I had a chance to go back now
Would I redeem my moral vows
Or would I repeat for my own laughter oh hey

From now on I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved
From now on I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved
From now on hey hey hey yeah
From now on oh hey hey
From now on I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved

Sometimes I find myself blind
Don't use my brain don't use my mind
Distorted feelings always leading my way
But I must forgive myself and let the past lay down to rest
And I'll be prepared to face myself in another day - hey

From now on I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved I mean it
From now on I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved woo
From now on - from now on
From now on yeah
Oooh ooh ooh
The back of my mind, the back of my mind, I'll be enslaved yeah
From now on hey yeah
From now on hoo I mean it I mean it
From now on I will behave I will behave
But in the back of my mind I will be enslaved


SINKING
(E. Stefani)

You're on a wide open ocean
No one around you for miles
You're thinkin' of drinkin' on water
While you're sailing the Nile

No one to stop you on your way
Flyin' by goes a stork
You decide to bring your oars in now
But accidently knock out the cork

Row your boat to shore
'Cause it is leaking and you're still drinking
Unless you cork the hole
You won't be sailing, you'll be sinking

Not knowin' you're sinkin'
You take out a bottle of rum - yum
Swiggin' a drink to the bottom
The bottle reads 'Van Monchinghum'

Oars back into the water
You think you'll sail on
But you can't 'cause your boat contains
Three and a half gallons

Row your boat to shore
'Cause it is leaking and you're still drinking
Unless you cork the hole
You won't be sailing, you'll be sinking

Row your boat to shore
'Cause it is leaking and you're still drinking
Unless you cork the hole
You won't be sailing, you'll be sinking

Row, row, row your boat
And sail your ship to shore
You're barely, barely, barely keeping afloat
Well I hope that you won't drink no more

Row your boat to shore
It is leaking and you're still drinking
Unless you cork the hole
You won't be sailing, you'll be sinking

Row, row, row your boat
And sail your ship to shore
You're barely, barely, barely keeping afloat
Well I hope that you won't drink no more

Row, row, row your boat
And sail your ship to shore (row row row your boat)
You're barely, barely, barely keeping afloat (you're barely barely barely)
Well I hope that you won't drink no more

Row, row, row your boat
And sail your ship to shore (row row row your boat)
You're barely, barely, barely keeping afloat (you're barely barely barely)
Well I hope that you won't drink no more


A LITTLE SOMETHING REFRESHING
(E. Stefani)

Yeah yay oh
I'm hungry yeah
I said I'm starving yeah
I want some Pizza Coke and ice cream popcorn cotton candy
Marshmallows milkshake and peanuts would be so great
Pies chips candy apples Twinkies Frosted Flakes
And donuts french fries and some chocolate cake with mustard
Cookies avocados pancakes pineapple juice
Whipped cream on some raw meat
That's not all I could...
Eat
I'm hungry
I want some food for my tum
I want some honey roasted walnuts pepperoni slices
Pasta and burritos different kinds of rices
Cherries dipped in chocolate cottage cheese and jelly
Colonel Sander's chicken still won't fill my belly
Broccoli sticky syrup churros dipped in sauce
Drippy sloppy joes then I'm full at last
Oh oh oh oh oh oh I'm full at last
And I'm full at I'm really really full at
And I'm full at last
I'm full at I'm really really full at
I'm full at last
And I'm full at I'm really really full at
I'm full at last
Full
(BURP!)


PAULINA
(E. Stefani)

Paulina - she's on the cover of a magazine
Paulina - a woman in my nightly dreams
Paulina - who makes me grin in any pose
Paulina - I wish she'd take off all her clothes

Paulina - well I stare at her pictures all day long
Paulina - and as I do I sing this song
Paulina - my father says to act my age
Paulina - as I single handedly turn the page

Paulina - well I paste her pictures on the wall
Paulina - sit by the phone and hope she'll call
Paulina - although I know she never will
Paulina - to indulge myself is such a thrill

Paulina - she's the big red apple of my eye
Paulina - I wish she'd lay down by my side
Paulina - but if she ever knew my pursuit
Paulina - she would probably file a huge lawsuit

Yeah yeah oh oh oh oh oh


BRAND NEW DAY
(E. Stefani, T. Kanal)

At the end of the day you are worn out, you are worn out, and too tired to sleep
But then you do dream of wonderful things
That you might do, right on through to the next day

And then you wake up
The sun's on your face
You're stretchin' while you're sayin'
It's a Brand New Day!

It's a brand new day and the sky is clear
So let's come together, everybody cheer
Come out people from everywhere
Let's see your faces, the day we'll share
Come on and celebrate a Brand New Day Everyday!

Call out to the workers and the children in the schools
It's a day of celebration so put down your tools and
Celebrate a Brand New Day Everyday!

Come see the mountains and come see the shores
Mother nature is calling so come climb aboard and
Celebrate a Brand New Day Everyday! Let's go -

At the end of the day there is no doubt you are worn out
Ooh but then you do dream of wonderful things
Wonderful things you might do

And then you wake up
The sun's on your face
You're stretchin' while you're sayin'
It's a Brand New Day!

Celebrate a Brand New Day, Everyday!
Celebrate a Brand New Day, Everyday!
