Heather Says
(Wachtel, Pulver)
Lead Singer: Susan and Vicki

Note: This song was recorded in the same key as the originally recorded in 1971.

Heather says that each of us here,
Is allowed just one friend,
And just one friend alone
That's what best friends are for.

Heather says that any among us,
Who think that it's better,
To have three or four,
Better change your mind.
That's what she says.

Heather does bad things in class,
But she never, no never gets blamed,
And I wager already this week,
About fifteen more kids have been framed.

And of course one would never,
Dare tell on dear Heather, dear Heather.

And Heather says not a soul in the whole of the fourth grade class
Can jump near as high or can run as fast.
I suspect someone could, but I can't deny
Heather must win so we never try.

The challenge appears on her lips with a grin,
And she gives us that look that says Heather must to win.
And we, do what Heather says We do what Heather says

Heather makes fun of the kid with the mole
And the extra large ears.
And she's not satisfied till he's screaming and red and is screaming and red and in tears.

And of course no one would ever
Dare tell on dear Heather, Sweet Heather.

Heather must be first in Hopscotch,
And when we play tag she is it.
Soon things will change,
Cuz the kids especially Margaret are sick of it.

And even I myself think that it's cruel,
That everything Heather says goes at our school.
Everything Heather says goes at our school.

Timberline
(Susan Cowsill / Vicki Peterson)
Lead Singer: Susan

I said ďBaby, didnít you know
I only meant maybe, about lettiní you go.Ē

So Iím up on the timberline, in my candle bed
Waitiní there for you
Waitiní there for you
Waitiní there for you

I donít keep it, hidden from you
And itís no secret what you got to do

So Iím up on the timberline, in my candle bed
Waitiní there for you
Waitiní there for you
Waitiní there for you

To figure it out, out, out
Go figure it out
Figure it out
Figure it out

Well you know well, what gets me high
But yaí canít tell, whatís making me cry

So Iím up on the timberline, in my candle bed
Waitiní there for you
Waitiní there for you

Iím up on the timberline, if only in my head
Waitiní there for you
Waitiní there for you
Waitiní there for you

To figure it out, (figure it) out, (figure it) out (figure it out)
Well figure it out, (figure it) figure it out, (figure it) figure it out (figure it out)
Figure it out, (figure it) why donít yaí figure it out, (figure it) figure it out (figure it out)

Never, Never Boys
(Vicki Peterson / Bob Cowsill)
Lead Singer: Susan

The following explaination was made of this song.
Vicki: Itís about boys . . . Letís just say have a youthful outlook

Not really lovers, itís more than just a friend
We tend to take up where our happiness ends
And thereís nothing that I wouldnít do or say
To keep them safe, the little boy at play

Never, never boys
So sad and tender
Never, never boys
Tell me their woes
Never could enjoy lovesí sweet surrender
Cuz I keep on falliní for never, never boys

He tries to tell me, Iím what heís looking for
Straight from his motherís house, to my front door
And thereís nothing that I wouldnít say or do
To keep the truth from ever shining through

Never, never boys
Cryiní on my shoulder
Never, never boys
Tell me their woes
Never could enjoy, never growing older
Cuz I keep on falliní for never, never boys

This would be easier to play
If I were a never girl, living in a never, never world


I know he needs me, and I know heíll never change
And I can understand why thatís not so strange
Cuz if you donít grow up you donít have to be
Intimate, responsible or free

Never, never - Never, never boys
So sad and tender
Never, never boys
Tell me their woes
Never could enjoy, lovesí sweet surrender
Cuz I keep on falliní for never, never boys
Yeah, I keep on falliní for never, never boys

Numb
(Vicki Peterson)
Lead Singer: Vicki

If you want Iíll share these things
Seering heartache
Wouldnít you take these shooting stars from my veins
Swollow them for comfort food
Like I want to become numb.

I can smell you on my clothes
Can taste you on my tongue
I knew better I suppose
Suck you deep into my minds --
I want to become numb.

Numb, numb

Seduce me, sedate me,
Kiss both of my eyes
And make me sleep
And if you should wake me
Stay out of my way
Hey ----
Numb
Ummmm

If you want it (want it) Iíll share these things (share these things)
Searing heartache
Wouldnít you take these shooting stars from my veins
Suck emí down like comfort food

Numb
I want to be, wanna be, wanna become numb.

This Painting
(Vicki Peterson)
Lead Singer: Vicki

You left me this painting, thanks a lot
Well you left me this painting and itís all that I got
To remember you by.

I thought Iíd come up and surprise you in bed,
But I found this canvas lying there instead
And that was goodbye.

A fat, blonde lady in an easy chair
With flowers and creatures growing out of her hair
I never liked it
You knew that, didnít you?

You took the postcards and most of my clothes,
And those pictures we took and those videos.
But you donít have it all.

Cuz I got the morning, northern light (northern light)
And I got a full moon so I can see it at night
Hanging there on my wall

A fat, blonde lady in an easy chair
With flowers and creatures growing out of her hair
I never liked it
You knew that, didnít you?

A fat, blonde lady in an easy chair
With flowers and creatures growing out of her hair
I always hated it
You knew that, didnít you?

Oh Iím takiní in my this comical scene
Now whatís your intention, and what does it mean?
I was in love with you, you knew that too.
You knew that too
You knew that too

Fun To Lie
(Susan Cowsill / Vicki Peterson)
Lead Singer: Susan and Vicki

Hey pretty baby wonít you let me take you home with me
I want to be the one to save you, baby canít you see?

I didnít ask you to say those things
This ainít no movie, Iím a human being.
There was no loaded gun to your head
You must be having some fun, itís fun to lie.

Hey pretty baby, want to wake up with you every day,
And if youíre frightened I will kiss your fears away

I didnít ask you to say those things
I wasnít looking for no diamond ring.
I didnít tie no noose around your neck
You must be having some fun, itís fun to lie.
Itís fun to lie.

So it seems, everyone plays this game
No one means what they say.
So it seems, I should do the same
I should learn to play
I should learn to lie, lie

I didnít ask you to say those things
I wasnít looking for no diamond ring.
There was no loaded gun to your head.
You must be having some fun, itís fun to lie.
Itís fun to lie.
Iíll learn to lie.

What Do You Want From Me
(Peter Holsapple)
Lead Singer: Vicki and Susan

We had a lot of fun,
One moment in the sun.
But now itís said and done What do you want from me?


You keep on trailing me like,
Like youíre some private eye.
Well, I canít identify,
What do you want from me?
Try and take it

You keep calliní me,
You keep houndiní me,
Well Iíll be free
Just wait and see

Not in ninty nine
Not in your lifetime
So on, so forth, so on, so forth, baby, baby

What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?

You got a lot of nerve
To say weíre back on terms
We get what we deserve
What do you want from me?

And Iím not the best you had,
Why do you want me so bad,
Try bugginí someone else
What do you want from me?
Try and take it

You keep calliní me
You keep houndiní me
Well Iíll be free
Just wait and see

Not in ninty nine
Not in your lifetime
So on, so forth, so on, so forth, So on, so forth, so on, so forth,

What do you want?

We had a lot of fun
One moment in the sun
But now itís said and done
What do you want from me?

You keep on trailing me like
Like youíre some private eye.
Well, I canít identify,
What do you want from me?
(What do you want from me?)
What do you want (you want) what do you want?

Wish You (Vicki Peterson)
Lead Singer: Vicki

I built a fire, burning so high, it hurt my eyes, it hurt my eyes
And I canít stand the quiet, donít want to hear myself think,
Iíll go for a drive, go for a drive
I miss you, thatís all
I wish you

No, I donít think itís funny, cuz I donít think at all,
Iíve nothing to say, I just wanted to call

And so what are you afraid of, is it so very strange,
As once we were friends, so we can remain
I miss you, thatís all
I wish you
I miss you, thatís all
I wish you

Now Iíve burned all the incense and the room smells of you
Itís not a big thing, itís just a phase that Iím going through
I miss you, thatís all
I wish you
I miss you, thatís all
I wish you
I miss you, thatís all
I wish you

Iiiiiiii
Iiiiiiii

Cuddly Toy
(Harry Nilsson)
Lead Singer: Susan

The following explaination was made of this song.
Susan: Davy passed away and of course we were all Monkees fans and I was in love with Davy. He was Ö I was only only one REALLY in love with him, the real way. And .. I hate to break it to all of yaíll. Anyway, so Vics she held onto that info for three days before she told me because she wanted to get some work done. Because I was going to go all fetal on her. (Vicki: Iím the practical one) She is. So we decided to do a song to honor Davy and we picked a Nilsson song because we love Nilsson and the Psychos used to sing this song 22 years ago.

La la la la La la la la La la la
La la la la La la la la La la la

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
You're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

You're not the kind of girl to tell your mother
The kind of company you keep
I never told you not to love no other
You must have dreamt it in your sleep

La la la la La la la la La la la
La la la la La la la la La la la

You're not the kind of girl to tell your mother
The kind of company you keep
I never told you not to love no other
You must have dreamt it in your sleep

Well Ö..You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
You're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

La la la la La la la la La la la
La la la la La la la la La la la
La la la la La la la la La la la
La la la la La la la la La la la
La la la la La la la la La la la
La la la la La la la la La la la
