Track Name: JENNY TAKES A FIRST LOOK AT LIFE
Jenny was a model child she’s told
Jenny was a credit to her school
She always toed the line
followed every useless rule
Jenny should be married at midday
she can feel her heart begin to pound
Jenny’s bags are packed
and she’s not hanging around

She says she’s sorry but she’s leaving
and though it’s underhand
she’s leaving, and hopes you will understand
she doesn't want to be a model wife
she wants to write a book and call it
Jenny takes a first look at life

Her father worked a night shift all his days
her mother worked all day and cried at night
she never once complained
she said that it was only right
Jenny has a boyfriend on that shift
she could sit at home with nights to let
but Jenny’s too young to die
she isn't living yet

She says she’s sorry but she’s leaving
and though it’s underhand
she’s leaving, and hopes you will understand
she doesn't want to be a model wife
she wants to write a book and call it
Jenny takes a first look at life

She may never get another chance
and though it’s gonna hurt to make the break
if she gets it wrong it’s her own mistake

So Jenny won’t be married at midday
she can feel her heart begin to pound
Jenny’s bags are packed
but she’s not handing around

She says she’s sorry but she’s leaving
and though it’s underhand
she’s leaving, and hopes you will understand
she doesn't want to be a model wife
she wants to write a book and call it
Jenny takes a first look at life
Track Name: MAN OVERBOARD
I've taken a trip on a luxury liner
I've taken a trip on the chromium sea
fallen in love with a girl from Atlanta
but I don’t believe that she’s fallen for me

There’s a man overboard, man overboard
a man overboard and he’s lost in the sea
there’s a man overboard, man overboard
the man overboard is me
the man overboard is me

Started my trip on the Indian Ocean
across the Pacific and down to the Med
I fell in love with a girl from Atlanta
but she doesn't love me
I wish I was dead

There’s a man overboard, man overboard
a man overboard and he’s lost in the sea
a man overboard, man overboard
the man overboard is me
the man overboard is me

Sailing, sailing, life on the ocean wave
drowning, drowning, deep in a watery grave

I've taken a trip on a luxury liner
I've taken a trip on the chromium sea
fallen in love with a girl from Atlanta
but I don’t believe that she’s fallen for me

There’s a man overboard, man overboard
A man overboard and he’s lost in the sea
Man overboard, man overboard
the man overboard is me
the man overboard is me
