  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Attractive/handsome full-color CD of our album Pony Steps! Contains lyric sheet with band photo so you can recognize us in the street and sing along at our shows or do The Old Rochelle karaoke or get lyrics tattooed on your back (or front?). Comes in full-color slip jacket as seen. You can pretend it's a tiny record, or pretend that you're a giant listening to a normal-person-sized record as you wonder where such a giant as yourself fits in in this society! I personally would use my gigantic size for good, but, you do you. Artwork and design by Bucky Fereke.

Stop playin’ around
With my heart and my mind
You’re lookin’ for attention
That’s not something you’ll find

You’re someone else’s baby
You’re someone else’s squeeze
Stop playing around
I shouldn’t have to say please

Stop talkin’ ‘bout “on the side”
That wouldn’t make you all mine
I couldn’t have you for days and nights
We couldn’t spend all our time

You couldn’t be my girl
I couldn’t be your guy
Stop playin’ around
I shouldn’t have to say why

I shouldn’t have to crawl on bended knee
Asking you to forget
Beggin’ you to leave

For days and weeks on end
You strung me along
Tellin’ me how you’re leaving him
How your life is all wrong

Don’t you have someone else?
Don’t you have a life?
Stop playin around
Stop making me cry

Cuz when I get home, I’ll be all alone
Flip on the tube, give my dog a bone
Go through my fridge, and turn off the light
Thinkin’ about you
And where you could be tonight...
