Last day of summer, I saw him down the shore We walked on the beach, but I just wasn’t sure Squared off at Skee-Ball, and he got beat On the Mighty Mouse, I flew out of my seat Got whiplash on the bumper cars Rode The Whip and I saw stars He swung the hammer, and he rang the bell Won me a goldfish and I thought that I could tell At the top of the Ferris wheel, that he knew me And when he looked into my eyes, how deeply he could see But I knew that it was real When we went on the roller coaster I grabbed his hand as we went up the hill My heart was beating fast – ooh what a thrill Before I knew it I was thrown against him As soon as we got off I said “Let’s go again” Spent every dime that we had that alright When we were back in class, I’d dream about that night When summer comes again, him and me We’ll be first in line, I can guarantee Cause we were thrown together On the roller coaster

The kids on my corner start a band With funds they made from a lemonade stand They spend all day in their garage Have to ask mom to move the Dodge Heard their guitar has a broken string And they're looking for girl who loves to sing On that corner where the music's coming from Sure hope that song's better by the night of the prom The other kids in the neighborhood Spit and say "that band's no good!" Their hearts don't open to that makeshift sound Yet they're always riding their bikes around The other kids in the cul-de-sac Wouldn’t like The Beatles if they came back But when the cops said "Turn it down" All the kids shouted "Leave our band alone!" The kids on my corner wrote a song It's not that good, but it's not that long Pretty soon they'll write some more Sometimes they still forget to close the door Or do their chores, take out the trash I love to hear to that drummer bash They changed their name to The Misunderstood Hey! I think they're finally getting pretty good The other kids in the neighborhood Spit and say "that band's no good!" Their hearts don't open to that makeshift sound Yet they're always riding their bikes around The other kids in the cul-de-sac Wouldn’t like The Beatles if they came back But when the cops said "Turn it down" All the kids shouted "Leave our band alone!" I've watched them from a distance And now I count myself as a fan I even wrote them a song, this one, Now it looks like I'm joining the band The other kids in the neighborhood Spit and say "your band's no good!" Their hearts don't open to that makeshift sound Why they always riding their bikes around? The other kids in the cul-de-sac Wouldn’t like The Beatles if they came back But when the cops drive by and frown All the kids shout "Leave our band alone!"

Everybody’s got a crush on Chad He’s kind of good and he’s kind of bad Cant put your finger on just what it is All the kids just want to be near him He makes me nervous when he passes by He’s kind of brash and he’s kind of shy He really has a strange effect on me Just a smile and I feel feathery I heard he lives in the bad part of town In a tumble down house, with no parents around All the kids and the teachers too Could sleep at night if they only knew What’s in that melancholy head he’s got One look, he ties me in a knot In that beat up pair of Vans and that wf mu tee shirt I would follow that boy, to the end of the Earth Everybody’s got a crush on Chad He’s kind of good and he’s kind of bad All the kids just want to be near him Can’t put your finger on just what it is All the kids have a All the kids have a Have a crush on Chad

Doesn’t have to be handsome Though I wouldn’t mind Don’t care if he’s tall or short As long as he’s kind At the end of the day When all that talk is gone Girls just want a boy To rest their head upon Just someone to talk to And tell our troubles to I know what the folks think They haven’t got a clue When we’re all alone And daily drama done Girls just want a boy To lay their head upon I know it gets complicated But sometimes we might Just want the simple things When the sun goes down at night When we lie on the beach Hold hands and watch the dawn Girls just want a boy To rest their head upon Girls just want a boy To rest their head upon

It’s always fun until someone gets an eye poked out It’s just a game until the flames burn down the house Sticks and stones, broken bones, twist and shout It’s always fun until someone gets an eye poked out You like to push the little buttons It’s the reaction that you crave Maybe you think you’re being funny But your methods dig your grave ‘Cause it’s gonna be SISS BOOM BAH right in the face I’m a lover not a fighter but I gotta put you in your place Some call it a battlefield A war of hearts you gotta win Fools drool, jerks hurt Suckers take it on the chin It’s all good fun until someone gets an eye poked out It’s just a game until the flames burn down the house Sticks and stones, broken bones, twist and shout It’s all good fun until someone gets an eye put out It’s all good fun until someone gets an eye put out It’s always fun until someone gets an eye poked out

She locked herself up (there) Hours ago And she ain’t said a word Don’t want no discussion Won’t answer any questions Her sobbing’s all we’ve heard How long she gonna stay in there? How long she gonna stay in that room? How long she gonna stay in that room? She must have had her heart broke Just blame it on that boy She used to talk about him all day But now she’s up there crying And breaking all her records (she) don’t want to hear what I have to say How long she gonna stay in there? How long she gonna stay in that room? How long she gonna stay in that room? How long she gonna stay in that room? How long she gonna stay in that… She locked herself up Won’t answer any questions She don’t wanna hear what I have to say She must have had her heart broke Just blame it on that boy She used to talk about him all day How long she gonna stay in there? How long she gonna stay in that room? How long she gonna stay in that room? How long she gonna stay in that room? How long she gonna stay in that…

At the end of the day When I’ve had my fun My music away My diary done I picture your face And that thing that you do And I don’t want to dream about you No, I don’t want to dream about you ‘Cause I think you forgot How to treat me and not To act foolish all day But that’s just your way So now don’t be surprised That, when I close my eyes, I don’t want to dream about you No, I don’t want to dream about you A splash of light And I‘ll be flying, above green angora hills I’ll see the people there And everybody smiling at me In my PJs of flannel I turn out the light And from my astral projection You’re nowhere in sight Tomorrow I’ll wake Fresh and feeling brand new And I won’t want to dream about you No, I don’t want to dream about you I don’t want to dream about you You You You

about

Juniper New Jersey

Teenager Juniper Shelley has been singing for as long as she (or anyone) can remember.

With the unique mix of punky/poppy songs, and the basement/kitchen sink production style, reverent to ‘60s & ‘70s pop but with a contemporary nod, her resulting debut album is fun, hook filled and constantly surprising.
