Zach Szerlip I love this album so much! The cover of "I Wanna Be Like You" is my absolute favorite. I found out about this band through spotify and have loved them ever since. Favorite track: I Wanna Be Like You.

Ben Mortimer Worth the buy just for the cover of "I Wanna Be Like You" alone, but the rest is fantastic too. Great band, I will definitely follow their eventual (and sure) rise to fame. Favorite track: I Wanna Be Like You.

Oh, my dear It's been so long since I've had inspiration to write again Oh, I hear such fancy illustrations and commotion upon the wind Hush, do you hear it? So sweet and subtle It teases me amazes me It's so divine! It must be mine! Dear, oh dear Why do you look upon me with such grief and tormented eyes? I just want to write this song for you I hope you like it Rise from bed I'll get you cleaned and primmedI've got a new dress for you to wear Ooh! And shoes! I found your favorite necklace too You have such beautiful hair! My, oh my you look as good as the day you died! Oh, who am I kidding? You look even more alive! I can't wait to see you dance again it will be splendid it will be splendid! I just want to write this song for you I hope you like it Whoa, darling look at it this way it's all for you and I love the way that this rhythm pulsates your skin Why don't we get you up out of that cursed chair 'cause I gotta feeling I know just how to make you move Gee, my dear I must confess this mess was not intended when I began and I can feel the pain in your eyes growing when you realize where you've been Haven't felt so refreshed in so long what's wrong you cried oh no please no

Back off get your hands off me, baby don't you try nothin' funny I don't need nothing from you No, I don't need the pressure now I've got a sweet little somethin' at home everything about her makes it warm she may make it easy but at least she isn't sleepin' around I can't help but feel I let you down I tried but I never really got around to treating you like the queen you think you are 'cause I didn't think that you were worth it Whoa, you're never gonna be the same and you're never gonna change I try and try again but you're too stupid to see how stupid you are Goddamn, I don't want to admit it but you've got a way with me and she doesn't get it I know (I know) I should probably let it go So i'll start trying to start again and probably never see your face again I gotta make it easy so my baby won't be sleepin' around But I'll probably run it to the ground

You never say that I can't do what I want to I just got to believe it and it will be I think that's crazy it's gotta take more to be adored like you're legitimate the crude and shallow act like such royalty 'cause all I hear them say is Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah look at me, I've got self-esteem I'm sick of all the fakin' that it takes to make it big 'cause all I hear them say is Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah look at me, I belong on a widescreen forget the talent it's so insignificant What's so wrong with wantin' to sing a song 'bout my inner frustrations? Maybe you could identify... We're not perfect so why should we pretend? I just want to end your need for me to be ostentatious You just want somebody with attitude a strong persona you'd like to aspire to and I can understand that but it's not germane forget the art you just want an accessory I believe ego-trippin' don't flatter you Every time I see them strut it something in me's gotta shut it down, down, down 'cause all I hear them say is Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah look at me, I've got self-esteem I'm sick of all the fakin' that it takes to make it big 'cause all I hear them say is Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah look at me, I belong on a widescreen forget the talent it's so insignificant I look around all I see is unchecked vanity and a desperate need to believe Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah look at me, I've got self-esteem I'm sick of all the fakin' that it takes to make it big 'cause all I hear them say is Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah look at me, I belong on a widescreen forget the talent it's so insignificant

Last night, I took a hell of a chance. I asked a girl to the dance and she said, "Hell yes!" No Jest! Impressed at my request, I'll have the best dressed guest. Tonight, I'll take that girl to the dance on a night filled with romance and she'll say, "Love me! Kiss Me!" Gleefully, we'll flee through the moonlight city! Oh baby, you look so sweet! We gonna dance 'til we got no more feet, yeah! Let's go! They've provided us punch and various snacks to munch. Let's boogie! My heart is parched. Let's march far beneath the stars where we'll never have to be apart. You look so good in the glow of the full moonlight. Oh baby, you bring out the beast in me. Oh shit. I'm a werewolf baby, yeah you best be believin'. I'll rip your throat out while everybody's screamin'. Clawin' and maulin' 'til the color of rose flows, I won't remember nothin' once this gory story comes to a close. Last night must have been real intense; I can't recall it's events. Darn, I say. Well, that sucks. I must rush to find the one I lust. I trust I didn't cause a fuss. And then I can't believe what I read. It said ALL OF MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD! Including her. I stall. I bawl. Although I am appalled, I gotta haul it to the funeral. Why, baby!? You were so sweet! Now all that's left of you is your dancin' feet, yeah! And as I arrive, since I'm the only survivor, "Mind if I say a few words?" You looked so good in the glow of the full moonlight. Oh girl, you still bring out the beast in me. OH SHIT! I'm a werewolf baby, yeah you best be believin'. I'll rip your throat out while everybody's screamin'. Clawin' and maulin' 'til the color of rose flows, I won't remember nothin' once you're dead. How can this be happenin'? Tearin' everybody dearest to me limb from limb. Want to stop and grieve them, but I just stop to eat them. Please. Someone please kill me. Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!? WAHHHH!
