  2. Who cares what picture you see/ When you’re huggin’ with your baby
  3. Sometimes the silicon chip inside her head gets switched to overload
  4. I don’t care if Monday’s blue
  5. She just can’t be chained/To a life where nothing’s gained
  6. Tried Betty Sue/ Tried Betty Lou/ Tried Mary Sue/ But I knew it wouldn’t do
  7. Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble
  8. Well sometimes I go out by myself/And I look across the water
  9. You say the world has come between us/ Our lives have come between us/ Still I know you just don’t care
