Track Name: Basketball
The starting 5 at 5 declared for the draft
And all my favorite players are never coming back
I just wish that I could see them play one more game
Because to me, they were the only ones to whom I could relate

Now my interest has migrated to
Time machines, time machines
Go back to Monday, put me on the court
I'm not that short, I'm not that short
Track Name: Battery
Battery, I need new batteries
I can see that my energy is getting dangerously low
So lady, oh come be my lady
Cause I need a new baby just so I know

I'm leaning back and I'm going to end up at home all alone
Won't you come be my baby tonight for the rest of my life

City, I need a new city
And leave with my baby in the middle of the night
Irony, oh sweet irony
I joined a website for dating the day before I met you

I'm leaning back and I'm going to end up at home all alone
Won't you come be my baby tonight for the rest of my life
Cause the strings on this guitar are getting old
I'm looking for a girl to call my own, call my own
