Oh yeah...
Coming at ya...

I'm Addicted to stress
That's the way that I get things done
If I'm not under pressure then I sleep too long
And I hang around like a bum
I think I'm going nowhere and that makes me nervous
Everybody's out to get me but I feel all right
Everybody's out to get me but I feel all right
Everybody's out to get me but I feel all right
Everybody's thinking 'bout me
Its the little things that get you
Its the little things that get you when you weren't paying attention
Its the little things that get you
Its the little things that get you when you weren't paying attention

Trying to cut down on my caffeine consumption
So when I get up I just have one cup of coffee
And I like to have another cup of coffee with my breakfast
And on the way to work I like to get a cup of coffee
Like the kind of cup of coffee that you get with the donuts
But I never get the donut I just have the cup of coffee
And when I get to work I have a cup of coffee
Cause I like to have coffee when I'm talking on the phone
But it usually grows cold and I need to get another cup of coffee
And its lunch, and I have an espresso
And when I get back its not morning anymore so I have
A diet cola and another diet cola
But then I'm feeling fine and I'm feeling pretty sharp
And feeling pretty wired and I'm getting things done
But right about two I get this little tiny migraine
It starts behind my eyes and it moves to the back of my neck
And it moves to the bottom of my spine
But it doesn't get there until 5 or 6 o clock
Which is the end of the day so I'm fine!
So I'm fine so I'm fine
Except when I have to work late when I have to work late
Which I usually do

I'm Addicted to stress
That's the way that I get things done
If I'm not under pressure then I sleep too long
And I hang around like a bum
And I think I'm going nowhere and that makes me nervous
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies thinking about me!

((talking to trumpet player))
Hey, how ya doing...
Looking good...
You been working out? Yeah I can tell...
Alright... See ya later...

I love to work I love to run I love to play real hard
I love to steal little things from the grocery store
Like a piece of bubble gum or sometimes I just stick
My thumb in a peach and leave it there
I love to work I love to run I love to water-ski snowboard
Jet ski skydive parasail hanglide rollerblade mountainbike
Bungee jump well I mean I'd love to do these things if I ever had the time
I love to work I love to work I love to workout after work
I love to spend a little time with this woman I'm seeing
Except uh, we never get the time to spend together
So we call each other up and we talk about work
But I think id really love is to get up by myself on a tiny little island
In the middle of the ocean with just me a book and a cellular phone
And a personal computer in case something came up
And I'd eat and I'd drink and I'd run and I'd sleep
And I wouldn't do nothing but swim all day
Except I don't know how to do laps in the ocean
Where there are sharks! Where there are sharks! Where there are sharks!
And there's this kind of anemone that sticks in your foot
And the poison goes up to your brain and you die
And sand fleas! Sand fleas! Yuck!
But actually I think would be really relaxing
Just me by myself in the middle of the ocean
And that's what I'd really like to do more than anything else
Except I'd probably hate it

I'm Addicted to stress
Its the way that I get things done
If I'm not under pressure then I sleep too long
And I hang around like a bum
And I think I'm going nowhere and that makes me nervous...
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies thinking about me!

Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies out to get me, but I feel alright
Everybodies thinking about me!(x2)

(improvise til end)
