Track Name: Ramp Locals
I'm gonna find me a house with a pool
And I'm gonna drain it
I'm gonna find me a Ramp with a keyhole
And I'm gonna skate it

Ramp Locals! Ramp Locals!
Ramp Locals! Ramp Locals!

It's my pool
And you ain't cool
Ramp Locals

I'm gonna kidnap two or three lurkers
And decapitate 'em
I'm gonna skate past a flat-footed cop
And I'm gonna hate him

Ramp Locals! Ramp Locals!
Ramp Locals! Ramp Locals!

I've got eight feet of Frontside Air
In my back pocket
I'm gonna pull it out on the next wall
And I'm gonna lock up

Ramp Locals! Ramp Locals!
Ramp Locals! Ramp Locals!

Frontside Lip
You're style ain't shit
Ramp Locals

It's my ramp
And you can't fucking skate it
Track Name: We Hate This
We, We hate this,
We, We hate this,
We, We hate this
'Cause we can't skate this

Concrete cracks and folds
But breaking is no option
Civilians will be casualties
No two-grunge cop can stop that

When your run in's got you choked
Just go for broke
It's four wheels down
Or face to the ground

Seven plies
Beats six feet deep
And that ain't too far off
Let's go! (Instruments Drop)
Weathered parks, rusty rails
If only gravel were gold
Your blades are bunk
Your steez is weak
This spot is cashed
The beers on me

Curbs are capped
Bondo cracks
It's a Sawzall mission
Smooth marble slabs
And business men
Clogging up my vision

We'll have a pool party
In your back yard
Water ain't permanent

Urethane wheels/Blownout shoes
Touching down on cement

We, We hate this,
We, We hate this,
We, We hate this,
'Cause we can't skate this


We, We hate this,
We, We hate this,
We, We hate this,
'Cause we can't skate this
Track Name: Kinkers, Betties & Beer
Double set rail
Come in hot
First kink, well
It broke me off

Chorus:
I like kinkers,
Betties and beer
I like kinkers
Betties and beer
If you're with it
Let me hear
I like kinkers
Betties and beer

Like Erik Ellington
In Thrill of it All
Or Pat Duffy in
Questionable
Make it or don't
You're Shakin' bones
If you're on it, Baby
Let me know

Lick my lips
Slap my thigh
Girl, I'd stack you up
About a mile high

(Repeat Chorus)


I drink beer
I like Micro-Brew
But when I'm dry
I drink that moonshine too

(Repeat Chorus)

An IPA
Just might do it
An ESB's got
Something to it
Half Pints or Tree
Phillips, BC
If you got it, Baby
Come with me

(Repeat Chorus x 1½)
