Everything's Catching on Fire
Everything is catching, yes, everything is catching on fire (everything's catching on fire),
Everything is catching on fire (everything's catching on fire).

Fingertips
Fingertips, fingertips, fingertips...

I Hear the Wind Blow
I hear the wind blow, I hear the wind blow,
It seems to say, "Hello, hello, I'm the one who loves you so."

Hey Now Everybody Now
Hey now, everybody, now hey now, everybody, hey now, everybody now.

Who's That Standing Out My Window?
Who's that standing out my window?

I Found a New Friend Underneath My Pillow
I found a new friend underneath my pillow...

Come on and Wreck My Car
Come on and wreck my car! (Come on...)
Come on and wreck my car! (Come on...)
Come on and wreck my car! (Come on...)
Come on and wreck my car! (Come on...)

Aren't You the Guy Who Hit Me in the Eye?
Aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?
Aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?

Please Pass the Milk, Please
Please pass the milk, please...
Please pass the milk, please...
Please pass the milk, please...

Leave Me Alone
Leave me alone, leave me alone...

Who's Knocking on the Wall?
Who's knocking on the wall?

All Alone All Alone
All alone, all alone, all by myself.

What's That Blue Thing Doing Here?
What's that blue thing doing here?

Something Grabbed Ahold of My Hand
Something grabbed ahold of my hand, I didn't know what had my hand, but that's when all my troubles began.

I Don't Understand You
I don't understand you... (I don't understand you...)
I just don't understand you. (I don't understand you.)
I don't understand the things you say,
I can't understand a single word.
I don't understand you... (I don't understand you...)
I just don't understand you. (I don't understand you.)
I cannot understand you. (I don't understand you.)
I don't understand you. (I don't understand you.)

I Heard a Sound
I heard a sound, I turned around, I turned around to find the thing that made the sound.

Mysterious Whisper
Mysterious whisper, mysterious whisper, mysterious whisper, mysterious whisper.

The Day That Love Came to Play
The day that love came to play...

I'm Having a Heart Attack
I'm having a heart attack, I'm having a heart attack, I'm having a heart attack, I'm having a heart attack.

Fingertips (Reprise)
Fingertips, fingertips...

I Walk Along Darkened Corridors
I walk along darkened corridors, and I walk along darkened corridors.
I walk along darkened corridors, and I walk along darkened corridors.
