Track Name: Stay
Your old lady, well she don't love you
But won't do anything to cut you loose
Keeps you around 'cause she knows you're a catch
But she don't want to try too hard to make it last

Well I got something you could use, and baby you know it too

My old man he don't give me the time
And I'd do anything to call you mine
He don't treat me the way that you do
Takes me for granted but you know the truth

You say you're too scared to go, but why would you ask when you know
I want you to stay
Stay

I'll be the only one you'd ever need
Do anything babe to make you see
She's gonna keep on bringin' you down
And my old man he don't want me around
I'll be the lady that'll treat you right
Give you lovin' every day and night
Make you happy for all of your days
I'll make it happen if you say you'll stay

Stay
Stay
Just stay
Stay
Track Name: Free From Prison
I was free from prison today
And all the while I had seen the sun on my face
But this was the first time it shined down on me
Asked the taxi-man to take me home
Though I'm still not quite sure where I'm goin'
But I got free from prison today

Today's the day I lost my ball and chain
I never knew how heavy or cumbersome it was
'Til I could run so light and fast and free
I never thought I'd walk again
Carrying around all my sins
But today's the day I lost that ball and chain

Life is scary, all the opportunities
Possibilities seem infinite
When they're handed to you on a silver plate
You can't say "No thanks, I'll just wait"
It'll pass you by, you have to seize the day

Today's the day I rewrite history
All my sad, sad stories, a life of misery
Now that's gone and the world is mine to see
Still not knowing where that road is
But I'm gonna stop and smell the roses
Today's the day I rewrite history
Today's the day I rewrite history
Track Name: Workin' for a Livin'
I got a 5 to 9 before my 9 to 5
I'm doing what I can with two jobs to survive
But that 50 hour workweek don't mean you got a full-time job
I've been busting my tail, working early and late
I've been doing this gig for 19 days straight
But all I've got to show's a couple hundred dollars to my name
Get it girl, that minimum wage
Don't you know you've got bills to pay

You're workin' for a livin' just so you can keep on livin'
Workin' for a livin' but you ain't really livin'
You're workin' for a livin' just so you can keep on livin'
You're workin' for a livin' but you ain't really livin'

Gave a quarter of my life to a corporation
Had a company car, four weeks vacation
They treated me good, but boy it was at a price
The boss says to me, "I know you needed a break
And you worked real hard, but we got margins to make
So long, here's your severance and right there's the door"
They laid off a few thousand of my friends
We're hoping it'll be okay in the end

We were workin' for a livin' just so we can keep on livin'
Just workin' for a livin' but we ain't really livin'
Workin' for a livin' so we can keep on livin'
Workin' for a livin' but we ain't' really livin'

So bust your ass, you gotta get that cash, but don't work too hard, life goes by so fast
Bust your ass, you gotta get that cash, but don't work too hard, life goes by so fast
Bust your ass, you gotta get that cash, but don't work too hard, life goes by so fast
Bust your ass, you gotta get that cash, but don't work too hard, life goes by so fast

Ohh, yeah

You're workin' for a livin' just so you can keep on livin'
Workin' for a livin' but you ain't really livin'
You're workin' for a livin' so you can keep on livin'
Workin' for a livin' but you ain't really livin'

You're workin' for a livin' so you can keep on livin'
Workin' for a livin' but you ain't really livin'
Track Name: The Pot & The Kettle
I'm no good don't you know it's true
You say I've got eyes for every man but you
I've got no shame and I'm running around
And the way I act is getting you down
Hey Pot I'm Kettle, don't we look good in black

I'm no good don't you know you're right
I pulled the wool right over your eyes
You say I'm a liar like Peter or Judas
Deny you three times, kill you with a kiss
Pucker up baby, I'll make it sweet, I'll make it fast
'Cause I wasn't your first baby and now I know I won't be your last

Tired of losing at your games
I'm gonna return your last name
'Cause the house we built well it ain't no home
Rather spend the rest of my life alone
Got a new life waiting, and I ain't sorry that I gotta go
Plenty of room in that glass house now for you and all your stones
