It's summertime hot The airconditioning's broke Let's get up to the mall and do the cool mall stroll Whoa Cool Mall Stroll Can't buy nothing at all 'Cause all my friends are broke Let's get up to the mall and do the cool mall stroll The swimming suit department Said all the pools are closed Let's get up to the mall and do the cool mall stroll Whoa Cool mall stroll It's summertime hot The air conditioning's broke Let's get up to the mall and do the cool mall stroll

Submarine 02:49
Joanne is not the gender that her body is she doesn't like the way her swimsuit doesn't fit what kind of swimsuit thinks Joanne should I invent to feel cool at the pool when I go for a swim it needs a stainless steel tank that covers all my bits a little extra room for like two or three friends a periscope, ballast tanks and side-view vents damn, I want a swimming suit just like Joanne's submarine submarine submarine it's a swimsuit and a submarine her gender nonconforming suit defines your confusion a submarine suit that battles Russian collusion in the deep, deep sea or in the kiddie pool Joanne and her swimming suit are deeply cool she don't take shit off of giant squid torpedoes of the high dive she can sink and swim she parties at the bottom of the deepest end damn, I want a swimming suit just like Joanne's submarine submarine submarine it's a swimsuit and a submarine I want a swimming suit just like Joanne's I want a swimming suit that is a submarine I want a swimming suit a swimsuit and a submarine

Houston needs a swimming hole We ain't got a place like that, so Houston needs a swimming hole Houston needs a place to chill Houston needs a place for real Houston needs a place to tan and make the water fresh again We ain't got a place like that, so Houston needs a swimming hole Houston needs a place to cannonball In Winter, Spring and Summer, Fall Houston needs to get the cash To get a place for us to splash We ain't got a place like that, so Houston needs a swimming hole

Holding On 03:49
When I was your age My friends and I strolled the mall Got caught shoplifting once, and It sure pissed off my mom Yeah, I'll drop you off Just check back in forty-five I'll be working all my puzzles in the parking lot Right Outside Remember who you are and where you came from When you're doing all that stupid teenage Shit I always wish that I had done, And if you need me I'll be right outside in the Suburban This is my little way of letting go And holding on I low key hope you blow your whole allowance in the arcade I low key hope a mall cop chases you when you pull a prank I low key hope you tattoo yourself and you dye your hair I low key hope you called some punks to meet you there Meet a cute kid from another school and sneak into a rated R show Make out just a little bit Don't let it goto far though And if someone picks on you Sweetie, kick 'em once for me (You know where) In case you go to the hospital Always put on some clean underwear Remember who you are and where you came from When you're doing all that stupid teenage Shit I always wish that I had done, And if you need me I'll be right outside in the Suburban This is my little way of letting go And holding on I'm holding on to my baby I'm letting go of my baby I'm letting go I'm letting go I'm letting go And holding on

Get Dirty 01:34
Messy hair and cut-offs She was looking like a dream If that's your dirty look I hope you never get clean She cut me with a side eye like a chainsaw through a tree I love your dirty look I hope it never gets clean I swore I'd never bathe again If she would set me free She said, "I hope you don't mind dirty looks You're never getting clean." Sweaty Houston swamp ass Rubbing on sunscreen I love your dirty look I hope you never get clean And then one day our homies wed I took her to the scene She took a shower, makeup on Hair up and everything It was more than I could take up Yeah it almost did me in If that's your clean look Let's get dirty again I hope we never get clean

Seventeen suits discounted 99 percent An offer like this will save a dollar Makes no sense You can't refuse a deal like this You're hoarding all you can, but Someone's always gotta pay, so Someone else can win The department marked it up And then they dropped it to the bottom To make the sweatshop bosses think they'd Get the workers Get the workers Get the workers Got 'em Who stitched the polyester on that frumpy cover up? Was it mother? A Machine? The Children? Slaves? God? Dammit (God, damn!) You got a lifetime supply (Ooh! Ooh!) That you might not live to use (Ooh! Ooh!) You got that feeling that you're feeling When you get a good deal on (Seventeen swimsuits!) 20 years have passed And now the suits are in the drawer Six or eight you're saving Eight or ten you wore Poolside in Cancun At the all-inclue resort You can't pass on a good deal, But someone had to pay for it Seventeen suits discounted 99 percent An offer like this will save a dollar Makes no sense You can't refuse a deal like this You're hoarding all you can, but Someone's always gotta pay, so Someone else can win (God, damn!) You got a lifetime supply (Ooh! Ooh!) That you might not live to use (Ooh! Ooh!) You got that feeling that you're feeling When you get a good deal on (Seventeen swimsuits!)

Everything changes with all the days that pass A different ship will sail around This old vessel's mast Each nail Each board Each sailor replaced Same colors Same course Same figurehead Same name Turn over Go under Each store where I used to shop When I was just a little kids And I hung around this mall Turn over Go under Is this mall still the same If all the stores And the shoppers And the workers have all changed? Blockbuster Mars Music Border's Books and CD World Hasting's Hollywood Video Sam Goody Tower Records Babbage's and Game Stop JC Penny, Macy's, Sears American Apparel and Guess Jeans Abercrombie and Payless American Eagle Outfitters Circuit City Radio Shack Gadzooks and Books-A-Million The Limited The Gap And what about me, myself? Different cells in seven years Will I be the same person Just because I am still here? Everything changes with all the days that pass A different ship will sail around This old vessel's mast Each nail Each board Each sailor replaced Same colors Same course Same figurehead Same name

about

​"...a refreshingly frivolous and fun brand of garage/surf rock...It’s proof that you can take subject matter that on the surface level may seem a bit silly and provide emotionally satisfying and even profound experiences."
-Matt Jensen, Divide and Conquer

"Turn Over! Go Under! boasts driving dance-rock songs like “Cool Mall Stroll” and “Houston Needs a Swimming Hole.” The seven originals are brisk and bright, most clocking in at under three minutes. They combine elements of surf rock, ’50s pop and classic Motown."
-Joey Guerra, The Houston Chronicle
