I can't help myself
I am the doughnut
That you hold up
And I never sold up in a pie
The hoot boot's so fly
I always try to beat
The rest to impress
I put my tongue
In my trouser press
I got the toots, baby
You got the fruits
Fruit got the loot, lady
You got the boots
Don't be a mook
Don't get the spook
Don't be a cry baby
I only said maybe,
Shmoozin I was pressuing
When like a catapult
I did a summersault
Going down the lazy river
three fingers deliver
I can't help myself
The reverb you just heard is resounding
In the surrounding area
It's getting scarier
I've got the amp damp mangled
Got my tingle in tangle
Let me see what I can wangle
In the Bermuda Triangle
Gravity will be the death of me
Terminal velocity follow
The follow the vaper
One hundred percent proof caper
Burst the barricades
But don't drink the lemonade
Martinis by beard man
An artisan down at the can can
And oh yes he can can fat
Fredies cat in seven lead boots
Whiskey for the whiskers
The shot sure shoots
She sells sea shells sea shells on the sea shore
Is it true what mummy said
You can't come back no more
Oh no no no no
Singing a song about nothing
Talk through my belly button
At the inn of seventh happiness
More or less
I found you on the floor
Saying more more more
Peel back the skin sonar
Beats like quaver
Small bananas selected for flavor
I can't help myself

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
