Track Name: Make and Do
(V1) they're tearing you down
and moving you out
don't put up a fight
cashing the check
or get out of line
begging for change

(C1) remember who's lost
remember to blush
while checking the list
of all of the things that you
make and do
make and do
make and do

(C2) remember who's lost
remember to blush
while checking the list
of all of the things that you
make and do
make and do
make and do
Track Name: White Sleeves
sleep, everlasting sleep
in the bar, in the street
i'm looking for you
waves, gentle waves
in the waiting room graves
i'm counting on you

seven miles above
and all i think of
ways that we, ways to be together

are you coming with me?
please, white sleeves

they stop me where i live
and all that i give
waves they call
ways they live together
i wanted to hide what i always denied
so i tried -
i can try no longer

are you coming with me?
please, white sleeves
Track Name: Making Sure It's Canada
(V1) Peter Parker, poor little saviour
don't you wanna break down?
'cos you know it's just a game
making moves with a Pleather Paver
don't you wanna break down?

(C1) 'cos you know it's just a game that you play
every night, every day, all over town
and the cows on the farm, just a downbeat from harm
rolling down that stupid hill

(V2) every night it's another stranger
don't you wanna break down?
'cos you know it's just a game
making moves with a Pleather Paver
don't you wanna break down?

(C2) 'cos you know it's just a game that you play
every night, every day, all over town
and the cows on the farm, just a downbeat from harm
rolling down that stupid hill
giving everybody their fill
making sure it's Canada
making sure it's Canada
making sure... it's Canada
Track Name: Let's Be Friends
(V1) Chrissy runs the late show
Debbie does a Volvo
on the cool-out valley road

Jules has got a strong heart
a sunburn and a go-cart
she used to be a jet pilot

(V2) Tracy was a no-show
down in Guantanamo
the General called her girlfriend's house

but Nicki had a fast car
a Conti with a wet bar
they're never gonna catch them
no way

(C1) baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be friends

(SOLO)

(V3) coming over the sun
in a rocket ship, a shining ego trip
coming over the sun
form the end of time, maybe past their prime
coming over the sun
are the decent few, who wanna be with you
coming over the sun
don't you ever doubt, let it out - listen to 'em

(C2) baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be (friends)
baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be friends
baby baby, let's be (friends)
