Track Name: A Few Spoons Shy
I don't want to have needs, I just want to be the one Em G
Always saving the day, always getting things done D A
With practiced hands, and the fire of the sun Em G
For fuel, not this empty, empty battery D A

It's hard to cut yourself slack, hard to have your own back
Hard to take your own advice, hard to even be nice
You know that you should be a superhero
Isn't everyone a superhero but me?

Maiden in distress never suited me best
I want to be thick-skinned, not waiting on the wind
For random news back of abilitiy or lack
I'm going to have today

I don't want to depend on the kindness of friends
I know that that's our lot in the only life we've got
But if you've got a line on robot-based dignity
Hey I'm listening

I don't want to have needs, I just want to be the one
Always saving the day, always getting things done
With practiced hands, with the fire of the sun
For fuel, not this empty, empty battery
Track Name: Lord Love Him (He's A Cookie-Eating Man)
Every creature that's born has just got to eat A
And some like broccoli and some like meat D
But the girl scouts cheer when they see him on the street A D
Lord love him, he's a cookie-eatin' man A E A

And hey-diddle-dee E
At the patisserie E
A-hi-diddle-die A
He ain't lookin' for pie A
Just a dozen chocolate chippers hot off the pan A D
Lord love him he's a cookie-eatin' man A E A

Measure the flour, set the oven's heat
I hope you've got plenty of eggs to beat
For his love of snacks it ain't petite
Lord love him he's a cookie-eatin' man

He's easy to please, just bake some treats
Unless you're a diet he never will cheat
Let him in to your heart and there'll be crumbs in your sheets
Lord love him he's a cookie-eatin' man
