it's the bottom of the ninth the winning run is on third and i am bored to death standing out in left field and i would rather be sitting in the bleachers hanging with the girl in the yellow t-shirt she smiles like she's awaiting a curtain call waves her arms around like she is magical i stick out of the ground like a tombstone i blew the big play and fractured my collar bone a year from now i'll be the center of attention (i swear my mind's made up) after i have had my sex change operation i could look you in the eye and i could make you nervous thinking that i look like i was 60 celsius and you could clown around and make a couple wisecracks and i could laugh along like a broken laugh track i'll smile like i'm awaiting a curtain call wave my arms around like i'm magical brought back down to earth by a curve ball i threw the all star game and shattered my clavicle chorus!

i really got your goat i'm not a mathematician and you're not a very good sport where are the others at i wasn't the only one there it's just a twenty dollar coat and now it looks like a dumpling and you want to take me to court down at the laundromat i wasn't the only one there in the basement i wasn't the only one there by there air vent i wasn't the only one there in the kitchenette (remember/memory) and you were foaming at the knees and i'm of the opinion that i'm not the reason you called where were the others at i wasn't the only one there i've made a mess to say the least and your substitute t-shirt was two sizes way too small down at the laundromat i wasn't the only one there by the night stand i wasn't the only one there by the ottoman i wasn't the only one there wearing condiments (remember/memory) dress you up just like a sandwich in the basement by there air vent by the night stand by the ottoman by there air duct playing catch up...

Crash Course 01:37
midgets in their pant suits idiots in sweatshirts glamour in the airport knock you down it's time for a crash course run around the concourse scream until your voice hurts knock you down take a look at my head gear take a look at my neck brace take a look at my breast plate take a look at my head gear knock you down! the honor roll students so completely clueless sleepy in st. louis knock you down miniature and fragile and running like cattle shoe-string tackle knock you down take a look at my head gear take a look at my neck brace take a look at my war paint take a look at my head gear knock you down!

Cold Turkey 01:55
she sat next to me in the waiting room i had the common cold she had a stomach flu i was reading time when she turned my way and she said that my breath smelled like an ashtray i need a cigarette and a blanket she's like a monster she wanted me to quit like that i really want her she wanted me to quit like that and then she handed me her hanky and a nicotine patch (she's so in particular) i was reading time when she started to flirt she grabbed the pack from the front pocket of my shirt threw it in her purse and then she asked me to quit and i said that it was more than just a habit chorus! she wanted me she wanted me dead chorus! and now i'm alone my nicotine patch was no match for the common cold.

Hit H 02:04
you step inside my favorite elevator and you drop your bag just like it was an anchor and you press H and i wonder what that stands for just hit H and you'll hang with me a while i never see you smile just hit H and you'll hang with me a while we'll share a cell for another thousand miles so long (i'm not going up) so long (hit emergency stop) i'm so glad that i didn't take the staircase you stare at the floor and i stare at your suitcase and i get off at 2 and then you get off at H chorus!

there are things that i'd like to say but i don't know how there are things that i'd like to do but not right now i just saw a movie that i really liked but i don't want to do a movie bit i just heard a joke that i like a lot but i forget and if you think a lot you think you know and if you drink a lot you're really drunk and if you think you suck you really suck and when you're hot you're hot i'm a hermaphrodite but that's beside the point i have friends who are kind of obnoxious but once you get to know them they're OK i do secret things when i'm alone in my room but exactly what i will not say there are things that i often do in public but they're embarrassing i do secret things when i'm alone in my room because i'm into that thing chorus!

about

The Best of Bitesize originally came out in 1999. While it was the first Bitesize album, it was laid out like a "best of" collection - the CD insert listed each track as being from make-believe prior albums, and the back cover says "9 classic tracks & 1 new hit!." It was an inside joke, as the band members believed that most bands' first album tends to be their best. Read reviews here: www.bitesize.net/songs.html#bestofbitesize
