You’ve rode through the land to see our merry band Hope you know where you’re going. There are no thieves or bears. Just one pounding snare. Hope you know where you’re going. I want it that way You understand The bass will pulsate To hold your hand Guitars now light your entry We know you’ll enjoy your stay Just remember if you’re lonely There’s 8 people on the stage making less than minimum wage in this BAND!!!!!! You’ve rode through the land to see our merry band Hope you know where you’re going. Yes, our name is hard to say but we say it anyway Hope you know where you’re going. Your room is furnished With sophisticated sound Let your senses diminish We’ll show you around Cuz Hot Sax is forthcoming (Sax Solo) Just remember if you’re lonely There’s 8 people on the stage making less than minimum wage in this BAND!!!!!! (Ride Through The Forest) You’ve rode through the land to see our merry band Hope you know where you’re going.

I had it there in front of me I could feel it in my hands It was there for me to grab And I let it fade away Sometimes you get a second chance But you botch it up again Some things just happen once Some things don’t go as planned But when everything goes wrong My 80s theme song comes on I met a beautiful woman She looked me in the eye Neither one of us made a move We had to go our separate ways We’re better off as acquaintances Let’s not call it friends Let it be circumstance Friendships always end But when everything goes wrong My 80s theme song comes on I lay in deep reflection There’s nothing else to do It’s so quiet in this room That I’m the only one in the world But when everything goes wrong My 80s theme song comes on

Nobody, nobody wants your homemade pornography Ralph Because it’s weird and it’s just you and it has lousy production values Ralph, you could do so much better Go out and find a lady of the night And you can hold the light while she does all the actions And the reactions And then you just might make some money off naked ladies That’s right! There’s money to made off naked ladies Cuz nobody, nobody wants your homemade pornography Ralph Because it’s weird and it’s just you and it has poor production values Ralph, you could do so much better Cuz nobody, nobody wants your homemade pornography Ralph Because it’s weird and it’s just you and frankly, I find it rather rude Yes I do.

I can buy a computer I can buy an ice cream co-ho-hone I can buy a scooter I can buy anything I already own But they one I thing I want most in life Is for me to be your wife And I cry cuz I can’t buy you I can buy a Mustang I can buy some curl cream for my hair I can buy a boomerang I can buy anything. I don’t really care. But they one I thing I want most in life Is for me to be your wife And I cry cuz I can’t buy you I don’t know how I got this heartache into me But now it’s there and it was free And I cry cuz I can’t buy you I don’t know how I got this heartache into me But now it’s there and it was free I can buy a computer But I think I’ll buy just an ice cream cone

The sofa that nobody wants to see He just sits in a little room tucked away in the corner at the Salvation Army He’s white with a zig zag design like purple & black lightning And all day and all night he wonders, how’s anybody gonna find me Sofa, all faded from the sun Sofa, not wanted by anyone Sofa, marked down lower than he should be Sofa, won’t you sit on me Won’t you sit on me The sofa that nobody wants to see He’s got a little 70’s lamp, sits right next to him. Tries to keep him company He dreams when he was clean and the kids would get up, sit down, and watch tv But those days are long beside him, he’s lucky not to be on the street Sofa, don’t put him outside Sofa, these stains are too heavy to hide Sofa, still kinda comfy Sofa, won’t you sit on me Won’t you sit on me Sofa, all faded from the sun Sofa, not wanted by anyone Sofa, marked down lower than he should be Sofa, won’t you sit on me. La de de da da. La de de da da.

I got my hands in my pockets And my pockets in my pants I got my pants on my skin They fall off now and then I got my hands in my pockets Got my hands in my pockets Got my hands in my pockets In my pants I got my hands in my pockets And my pockets in my pants I got my pants on my skin They fall off now and then I got my hands in my pockets Got my hands in my pockets Got my hands in my pockets In my… Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants Your pants have come off. Your Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants I’ve had just enough of your Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants Your pants have come off. Your Pants, pants, pants, pants, pants, pants I got my hands in my pockets And my pockets in my pants I got my pants on my skin They fall off now and then I got my hands in my pockets Got my hands in my pockets Got my hands in my pockets In my pants

Save Laura 01:56
They call it a hotel But it’s residential It’s usually chill But this was Saturday night Someone took a bite Out of someone else’s flesh And now I see that there is only one thing for me to do Save Laura Working on that crossword puzzle Save Laura I went to check on all the rest Save Laura When I came back, she was nowhere to be found Laura is a vampire now Josh had a cold And he was told For a stuffy nose You use lots of garlic It made him less sick But the solution was a myth He wasn’t spared by those vampires as bats flying in the air I can’t believe that Barry survived this whole thing. He’s got a beard. Is he a werewolf or is he a stylish man? Save Laura Working on that crossword puzzle Save Laura I went to check on all the rest Save Laura When I came back, she was nowhere to be found Save Laura There’s some twilight antics going down Save Laura Maybe she went to get help in the town. No! Laura is a vampire now Laura is biting my neck now Laura is sucking my blood now Laura has made me a vampire now.

I need less action. More satisfaction is what I need Still regretting the beginning. The part I saw there I missed indeed And there’s no one here to talk about these things Some common sense is what I believe My brain is gone. My nerves are shot. Who needs nerves to see? I throw a dart. Forgot the 50 point mark was me. And when it’s done, it’ll be done the same old way I pound my fist in my bag of oats I lay And all the animals are wondering when they gonna get off this ship God is a joke they say with a big shush tied upon his lip Ahhh-ahh Fall around in Pepsi cans. I’m all cutup. I’m a cutup. I’m cuttin’ it up. I’m cuttin’ a rug. I’m cuttin’ the cheese. I’m cuttin’ the grass. I’m cuttin’ a slug in half. I’m waiting to see if it grows back. And all the animals are wondering when they gonna get off this ship God is a joke they say with a big shush tied upon his lip Ahhh-ahh I’m unhappy Ahhh-ahh And I’m hungry Ahhh-ahh And Ham likes my wife And all the animals are wondering when they gonna get off this ship God is a joke they say with a big shush tied upon his lip Ahhh-ahh Pop says the animals are lying

La la la… At the Hamburg Zoo There in Arctic Cove A living breathing mermaid Swims alone Forced to sing Adele “Rolling in the Deep” Cries to herself When you sleep Hiding just inside a cave She waits until she gets the wave Then Ariel takes it away Ariel is not her name But as Lisa she don’t get paid So Ariel take it away Ariel, sing one today. La la la… They wanna make her mate With a manatee She cannot relate Manatees are ugly They give her old fish scraps It’s not what she eats It’s like giving a man Man meat Hiding just inside a cave She waits until she gets the wave Then Ariel takes it away Ariel is not her name But as Lisa she don’t get paid So Ariel take it away Ariel, sing one today. La la la… Belting out Disney classics On top of a rock On Saturdays, it’s cabaret favorites And 2 and 4 o’ clock The zoo set up a cam Come catch a sneak peak Put on Instagram Hashtag freak She’s not an animal Or is she? That’s the subject of Her documentary Hiding just inside a cave She waits until she gets the wave Then Ariel takes it away Ariel is not her name But as Lisa she don’t get paid So Ariel take it away Ariel, sing one today. La la la…

We wish you a merry Christmas from all of us to all of you Merry Christmas, merry Christmas, merry Christmas, Happy New Year We went outside to do some shopping Left the record on the record player playin’ We want a merry Christmas But it’s Sammy Davis once again Merry Christmas When the needle drops, the music doesn’t stop Merry Christmas When the needle drops, Sammy Davis doesn’t stop We don’t want to go to Las Vegas circa 1963 No casinos, no casinos, no casinos, (jackpot sound) I’m writing to Jolly Old Saint Nick I’m walking in a winter wonderland We want a merry Christmas But it’s Sammy Davis once again Joy to the World! When the needle drops, the music doesn’t stop All the Boys & Girls! When the needle drops, Sammy Davis doesn’t stop When the needle drops, Sammy Davis doesn’t stop It’s been a long time since I’ve heard silence Sammy & his kids choir in my head Wishing me seasons greetings in every way there is to say it Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it ho-ho-ho! It’s the perfect time to build a snowman We want a merry Christmas But it’s Sammy Davis once again Let’s all go caroling! It’s a very merry distraction We want a merry Christmas But it’s Sammy Davis once again Put up lights around the apartment Buy a stocking stuffer for a friend We want a merry Christmas But it’s Sammy Davis once again We three kings of orient are God rest ye merry gentlemen We want a merry Christmas But it’s Sammy Davis once again

In The Dark 03:12
After working all day, I needed to take off some stress I put in my Craigslist ad that I want to go out And you sent me a pic and a note and I was so pleased You said a boy and girl have the very same mouth We could be so happy. Come on everyone, let’s go down to the park I don’t know. You just blow. And nobody will see us now in the dark We just went straight down through the trees. Chit chat we skip. In this circumstance, it did not matter who And I could feel the weight of the world smothered on your lips I got behind you telling me your problems too We could be so happy. Come on everyone, let’s go down to the park I don’t know. You just blow. And nobody will see us now in the dark In the dark, you can blow all your cares away Just remember that you’re not gay Either way it’s ok! I want you. Yes I want you to cum on me face If you promise you don’t have Aids or any other disease. Nahhh!! We could be so happy. Come on everyone, let’s go down to the park I don’t know. You just blow. And nobody will see us now in the dark Nobody will see us now in the dark Nobody will see you go, no. Nobody will see you blow, no. Nobody will see us now in the dark

The sound Instruments play themselves Old town Corrupted by elves Sit down Wish we were somewhere else Than a boat inside the mouth of a whale It’s a frightening vision of Hell Everytime we touch an angel explodes What a room of nightmares this is I never will go home Passion is hot Batteries in a case Maybe not By the look on your face I forgot That there is no escape On top of elephants on elephants Imagine walking and wandering through all the wonders of the world at once It’s glorious but overwhelming. It’s exhausting and neither of us had lunch Bad choice Sorry I got us lost So moist All things covered in moss Old toys With faces like Faust Spinning on a carousel It’s a frightening vision of Hell Everytime we touch an angel explodes What a room of nightmares this is I never will go home I dreamed That I was alive So sweet That I cried and I cried And I Would like to go back sometime But there’s no chance in a frightening vision of Hell Everytime we touch an angel explodes What a room of nightmares this is I never will go home Two eagles fighting a bear What are they doing there? What a room of nightmares this is I never will go home

Honolulu 03:17
Awake and see the white ceiling She’s still snoring. It’s another morning I go downstairs. The dog has stained the carpet once again I never wanted him. My daughter turned 10. Step on an old Lego. That stupid son I hate myself and I hate everyone Honolulu would be much more fun. I’d Surf on the waves of Waimanalo Beach Sippin’ on a mai tai by the pool at the Aqua Skyline Losing my mind There is no doubt. The lawn looks shitty from the drought Dear God, shut your mouth. I don’t know what you’re talking about I don’t care. I can’t spend anymore time here in Kohls I’ll be in the car thinking bout driving far. Kids broke the garbage disposal. That’s more money I hate myself and my whole family Honolulu is the place for me. I’d Surf on the waves of Waimanalo Beach Fucking in every hole. Sharing straws on a Scorpion bowl Life’s taken it’s toll Bring on the fire Bring on the fire Bring on the fire To light that way to Waikiki Bring on the fire Bring on the fire Bring on the fire To light the way to God

about

"With their self-titled debut Vincent Gargiulo National Park have knocked it out of the proverbial park. Though the lyrics are precisely hokey they are also witty. They are much like Talking Heads a band that seems at first glance to be a bit silly. But this is of course a con, a wool over the eyes. These songs are lyrical slapstick in the vein of Charlie Chaplin. Vincent Gargiulo National Park may just be the record many people need in their live for these dark and uncertain times which likely lie ahead." - Jamie Robash, No More Division
