Track Name: I'm Sorry for the Things I Said (When I Was Hungry)
I'm sorry for the things I said when I was hungry D Bm
When I haven't eaten I see red C G A
I know my choice of words must have made you angry D Bm
But stop pouting and make sandwiches instead C G A
You know I only love you when I'm fed C G D

Did I say that out loud? It's just my stomach talking
Be a lamb and fry a chicken while you're up
Ooh, a lamb, do we have lamb? Let's go grocery shopping
Our friendship will be stronger once I've supped
And violence much less likely to erupt

When my blood sugar drops G
My diplomacy just... stops D
And my eyes begin to measure you for caskets Bm A
If you don't want to hear G
Things that might offend your ears D
You're going to need a loaded picnic basket C G A

If I don't get some dinner I may stoop to slander
Forgiveness without eating takes too long
I need something fried in butter to rein in my candour
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M NOT SORRY; YOU'RE STILL WRONG
Look - I... was hungry when I wrote this song

I mean, I dispassionately evaluated your argument strictly on its merits C G D
And found it wanting. And needing steak sauce. D
Track Name: Every Pork Chop
Gems D
Can summon weapons with a thought D G
And I haven't got the knack yet G Bm
But I've got a burger backpack Bm C
And you work with what you've got C G D

I know that I'd be able D G
To help you with your missions G Bm
I wouldn't be an imposition Bm C
Here, have a soggy bagel C G D

'Cause if every pork chop's perfect G D
You don't get to have HOT DOGS! Bm D
If each potato's perfect G D
You don't get to have FRY BITS! Bm D
If every Gem was perfect G D
There wouldn't be a STEVEN Bm G
And I believe in C
Steven G
Won't you believe with me? A

Gems D
I could write your wrestling story D G
Or make this weird moss bloom G Bm
I could even clean my room Bm C
Well, I won't, but I'll say sorry C G D

And, Gems-- D

All right, Steven you can come along.
Yayyyyy! Steven's coming! And LION!
Steven, that lion keeps trying to suffocate you.
AND LION!

G7sus4 G
G7sus4 G
I've got a restless feeling G7sus4 G

My chair is too soft G7sus4
My cup of coffee's G7sus4
Not strong enough G

My shoelaces aren't C Cadd9
long enough G
G7sus4

I've got a restless feeling G G7sus4 G

I want a road G7sus4
That never slows for G7sus4
Destinations G

I want a train without C Cadd9
no station G
G7sus4

I'm wearing out a circle in the hardwood floor Bb G
And staring at the handle of the locked front door Bb G
And I can't remember any more Bb G
What on earth I ever locked it for G7sus4 G
G7sus4
I've got a restless feeling G G7sus4 G

I'm a map with no X G7sus4
I don't have a complex G7sus4
Route in mind G

I just want to walk very fast C Cadd9
in a straight line G
G7sus4
I've got a restless feeling G
I've got a restless feeling G7sus4
I've got a restless feeling G
A restless feeling G7sus4

I'm wearing out a circle in the hardwood floor Bb G
And staring at the handle of the locked front door Bb G
And I can't remember any more Bb G
What on earth I ever locked it for G7sus4 G
G7sus4
A restless feeling G
A restless feeling G7sus4
