"Why Do You Have to Put a Date on Everything" as written by Laura Jane Ballance, James August Wilbur, Jonathan Patrick Wurster and Ralph Lee Mccaughan....
You've got your muscles in one big knot
Well mine are just loosening
You used to cut me up inside
I won't let you do it again

Make sure the friend catches the first time
Make sure the friend catches the first time

Chorus
Why do you have to put a date on everything?
Can't you just strike the bell to hear it ring
Thought that your skin would crack, it's just wrinkling
Why do you have to put a date on everything?

You think that something is turning?
Well it's not spoiled cause i tried it once
And if it's all the same to you at this point
You keep your face and i'll keep the rest

Chorus
