No love makes me empty like a bottle of beer on friday night I saw you standing there No love makes me empty like a bottle of wine what do you say, let's get together sometime No love makes me empty like a bottle of rum why don't you call I know you have my number No love makes me empty like a bottle of booze you've got nothing to win you've got nothing to loose Our love makes me empty like a bottle of beer on friday night we never go nowhere Our love makes me empty like a bottle of wine can't we just do something different sometime Our love makes me empty like a bottle of rum I just call when I don't want you to come Our love makes me empty like a bottle of gin you've got nothing to loose you've got nothing to win

saturdays we brace ourselves tonight there will be dancing all night long keep our fingers crossed for the DJ cause there is a chance she might just play our song Our bellies are full of butterflies but there's nothing that could possibly go wrong it's just another magic night when everything they play is a sing-a-long rock'n'roll was a reckless lover hip hop pimpled you all over I don't know if you can tell from what you've heard but I think pop love might just save the world rock'n'roll was a reckless lover hip hop pimpled you all over I don't know if you've guessed from what you've heard but we all know pop love might just save the world

Last night i found a place where I was pretty I felt beautiful, and my love was with me and we danced to all the sweetest songs I've ever heard yeah I liked it there, in Bizarro World Everyone in there was just as cute as you and just as nice and I was happy too. Last night I found a place where I could be a girl and I liked it there, in Bizarro World Hold it boy, you know it's just a dream you're not as lucky as it seems There is no way that you'll be free There is no "sure" just "maybe" There is no love that's bona fide There is no dance that lasts all night There is noone with pretty eyes There's no invincible disguise Last night i found a place where I was pretty I felt beautiful, and my love was with me and we danced to all the sweetest songs I've ever heard yeah I liked it there, in Bizarro World Hold it boy, you know it's just a dream you're not as lucky as it seems There is noone who'll sing along There is no meaning to your song There is no meaning to your words There's no such thing as Bizarro World

A kiss as sweet as apple sauce You got a little thing going down with me we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy I can make two eggs turn into oh so many pancakes and I'll serve you them for breakfast with all different kinds of jam and maybe we'll have icecream or some whipped cream to go with them but baby, I'll suffice with just your creamy skin You got a little thing going down with me we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy You got a little thing going down with me we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy and I can make two chords turn into oh so many lovesongs and I'll write them in my bed inside my head when you're asleep and I'll play them in the garden and I'll sing them in the shower I'll record them in my heart 'cause I know that we don't play for keeps You got a little thing going down with me we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy You got a little thing going down with me we're calling it a fling but we love like crazy but it's hard to sing when you are out of tune and out of love and luck and everything is upside down you watch those smiles turn into frowns and everything is downside up please someone tell me to shut up
