Aron This is all I ask, this is all I need You need to shower me with gratitude And to fall down on your knees For it was I who rescued you From a miserable fate Aron You're only here because of me, because of me And if I hadn't grabbed your hand You'd have washed out to sea, washed out to sea (Washed out to sea) Aron You were digging for some crabs (digging for some crabs) Hidden in the sand (hidden in the sand) Then a wave the size of Africa (that's a pretty darn big wave) Swept you far away from land (far away) It was I who rescued you (I saved your life!) From a miserable fate (Better thank me, Aron) Aron (Give me some respect) You're only here because of me, because of me (I'm such a hero, baby) (they'll name a street after me) And if I hadn't grabbed your hand (That's right!) You'd have washed out to sea, (floaty floaty float in the ocean) washed out to sea (Oh yeah, better thank me for it!) Aron (I'm the reason you're alive) You're only here because of me, (I bet they'll give me the sainthood) because of me (performed a miracle, I did) And if I hadn't grabbed your hand (Uh oh!)

There was an old man who lived by the sea He had an eyepatch, and a meathook for a hand And if you asked him why he lived there He would answer and then you'd understand I love the ocean. Naah! I love the ocean. Naah! I love the creatures of the ocean Like the otters and the dolphins And the tuna and the seagulls And the hermit crabs with pinchers And the pelicans and sand fleas (Ahh Ahh) And the grunion and the blue whales (Ahh Ahh) And the barnacles and mackerel (Ahh Ahh) And the sharks with pointy teeth (Ahh Ahh) Sometimes late at night, I walk out to the water and the fish all gather round and tell me secrets about the future Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh Old Man! I love the ocean. Naah! I love the ocean. Naah! (Spoken) I wish we could have had some musical entertainment tonight but instead...

Just an ordinary day (nothing odd about it) Guess somehow you lost your way (but you'll get along without it) Someone is standing in the street, but you don't know that it's you It's a beautiful day You don't care about the time (never have to hurry) Ever since you lost your mind (never need to worry) And all your prior obligations have been canceled for you And it's a beautiful day Your brain fell out (see it spinning in the air) Your brain fell out (now you're falling down the stairs) Your brain fell out (doesn't anybody care that you're happier that way?) Now your thoughts have disappeared (check your mental baggage) You've forgotten why you're here (but somehow you seem to manage) Someone is staring at your shoes, but you don't know that it's you It's a beautiful day Did you have something to say (maybe you forgot it)? Your idea blew away (the second that you thought it) Maybe that's because your brain is on the sidewalk And you're happier that way Your brain fell out (see it spinning in the air) Your brain fell out (now you're falling down the stairs) Your brain fell out (doesn't anybody care that you're happier) Your brain fell out (see it spinning in the air) Your brain fell out (now you're falling down the stairs) Your brain fell out (doesn't anybody care)

Happy Noodle led the sort of life the working Stiff dreams about; driving a Studebaker Making pies with his wife, taking a dip in The old swimmin' hole. Yessir, Happy Noodle Had it good and he wasn't complaining. He Always waved and smiled and tipped his hat And said Nice weather we're having (regard- Less of the weather). "Nice weather we're having" Now, as most protagonists do, he had an antagonist, a polar Opposite, bent on nullifying his happy existence. His name was Sad Noodle; a pathetic Excuse for an egg-and-flour mixture (with a Little extra water, just for tears). He Worked in a successful firm and was under a Lot of stress, and this is the story of their Ultimate battle Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Noodle One day, as Happy Noodle was out mowing The lawn with a smile and a song An Edsel pulled up in front of the House. It was Sad Noodle. He leaned his Ropy head out the window and said "Look Happy Noodle: I'm sick of being your polar Opposite. You know, sad all the time and What-not. It makes it hard to get along I've come to challenge you to a duel to the Death." So Happy Noodle put down his mower And obliged, saying "If it'll make you Happy!" and Sad Noodle cringed. He hopped Into the back seat and they were off to the Gravel pit, Happy Noodle singing all the way And Sad Noodle driving like a madman "This'll end it all!" thought Sad Noodle And they prepared for the fight. Strange Sight: two noodles standing face to face One smiling and one frowning Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Noodle Thinking on his feet, Sad Noodle used his head As a whip and tried to trip Happy Noodle but he slipped And he flipped face-first on the ground with a sound Like a wet noodle slapping the ground kind of sound Then Happy Noodle wrapped Sad Noodle up around a tree, said See Sad Noodle, dont'cha mess with me 'cause I be the baddest Noodle there will ever be! Because I'm happy! Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Noodle So after Happy Noodle untied Sad Noodle, they Got back in the car. Sad Noodle, defeated Dejected, depressed, dropped Happy Noodle off At his door and said "You know what? I Don't think that helped me very much." And Happy Noodle said "Sad Noodle, why don't you Come in for some pie?" And Sad Noodle said "No, I'm sorry. I don't like pie all that Much, but thanks all the same." Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad Noodle Happy Noodle versus Sad, Sad Sad Noodle

Tuesday night, down on main street Looking for some ice cream Maybe rocky road Ice cream man in his white coat Scooping some vanilla And some rocky road Then I hear the voices in my head Whispering to me, “Kill, kill, kill the ice cream man.” Wednesday night at the movies Looking for some popcorn Maybe M&Ms Popcorn man in the lobby Scooping up some popcorn And some M&Ms Then I hear the voices in my head Whispering to me, “Kill, kill, kill the popcorn man.” They'll never catch me They'll never catch me

Every time you tie your shoes Every time you put on your hat Every time you wash your face It matters Every time you simply go outside It means a very great deal How ya doin', Emily? Don't you know the things you do Make a difference to the world? How ya doin', Emily? Put your hands together And we'll make the world a better place In a boat or truck or train In an airplane over the sea Any way you wanted to get there You'd get there There's not a thing in the world to stop a person like you From getting where she will go And when the cold wind blows Count your fingers on your toes It always comes to ten (again and again and again) How ya doin', Emily? Don't you know the things you do Make a difference to the world? How ya doin', Emily? Put your hands together And we'll make the world a better place Everybody says hello Everybody opens the door Everybody stops on the street When you walk by Everybody in the world is surely falling in love With everything that you do And when the nights are long Remember, you can sing this song I wrote it just for you How ya doin', Emily? Don't you know the things you do Make a difference to the world? How ya doin', Emily? Put your hands together And we'll make the world a better place

Thank you, uh, can I get you something from the kitchen? Some cake, perhaps some coffee? Sounds good to me See how you like this rifle barrel over your head! And now I'm getting out of this crummy joint once and for all You can board up all the windows, you can padlock your door You can paint over the mirror in the bathroom to be sure You can try to disguise the booby prize from the spies and flies and the prying eyes That follow you wherever you go You can lose them at the corner, you can fall down the stairs You can race out of the back door up the fire escape to the open air When you hit the ground, you can go downtown in a gown you found at the dog pound around A hound who drowned 'cause its owners didn't care Or you can Do the confusion till your head falls off Gown you found at the dog pound Do the confusion till your head falls off (Your head falls off) You can open all the phone lines, you can tie them up with rope You can throw a note in the ocean to grope For whatever floats your boat (Whatever floats your boat!) You can overdose on the whole wheat toast or go blow your nose in your overcoat Or phone home to your frozen chromosome And only groan like a lonely pony You can tell it to the jury, you can stick it in your ear You can kiss the wrist of the Swiss Miss, mister, until you disappear You can find the time to imbibe wine and write the lines you can rhyme with the best kinds of minds And the swine reclines as the mime tries to climb in slime Or you can Do the confusion till your head falls off Blow your nose in your overcoat! Do the confusion till your head falls off (Your head falls off now, head falls off) And just who is going to stop me? I will **crashing** Stop, stop this craziness! You're destroying my toys! See the people with the sweetmeats? Gee, it's a treat When you meet discreetly beneath the sheet You can beat the heat on Easy Street When you're cheatin' completely, please repeat: "Beep Beep, I'm a Jeep, I'm a Jeep," till the creep asleep in the cheap seat believes He's Meryl Streep with a deep need to eat sheep's feet in her cream of wheat (Neat!) Do the confusion till your head falls off Blow your nose in your overcoat! Do the confusion till your head falls off (Your head falls off, head falls off) (Your head falls off) (Until your head falls off) (Do the confusion till your head falls off, your head falls off) Running out the back door, he races up the fire escape to the roof I remember you now, and I'll put you behind bars again, just the way I did 6 years ago Oh no you won't, birdbrain!

Lizard and Fish, oh what a pair One lived underwater, and the other breathed air On a shelf in a pet store, on Aisle 13 Lizard and Fish would sit together and dream And Lizard said, "Fish, how's the water today?" And Fish said, "(bubble bubble)" And Lizard said "Somehow, we'll both get away And be a refugee lizard and fish." Lizard was bright, he was clever and sly There wasn't an escape routine that he hadn't tried And Fish was a master of keeping his cool While dreaming about the day he'd go back to school And Lizard jumped up on the wall of his tank And Fish said, "(bubble bubble)" And Lizard said, "Someday we'll get to the river bank And we can live like a lizard and fish." One day, there was a fire in the Back of the store, and all the animals were Screaming and squawking and otherwise talking About the terrible stench and the roar of the flames Then suddenly Lizard and Fish were Grabbed from their homes by Pee-Wee Herman who was Clearing out the burning store and putting all the animals Outside. Take it, Fish And Lizard said, "Fish, we're finally free And fish said, "(bubble bubble)" And they built a rocket and flew to the moon Where they spent their days eating flies a lot And singing about the the wonderful day The store burned and Pee-Wee saved them And looking at the stars 'cause they were Really really pretty And living their lives like lizard and fish

I want to live on the moon I want to live in a plastic dome I wanna climb on a rock and be like Mr. Spock But without having pointy ears I want to live on the moon I want to call it my home sweet home I want to chuckle and laugh but you can't hear me laugh 'Cause there isn't an atmosphere I want to slide Down the side of a crater, there is nothing greater Than that in my mind At the present time I want to jump And escape gravitation, [?] ambulation That's been overrated Since ancient time (For .8 seconds, you believe that you're flying!) I want to live on the moon I want to talk to my robot cat I want to sit in a chair, think about me And stare at the Earth in the sky I want to drive I'll take my lunar rover, go under and over And stop and do donuts Out on the lunar sand I want to replace In a triumphant manner the American banner And declare that the moon Will become Logan land (Honey, there's a full Logan land tonight) I want to live on the moon (I want to live on the moon) I want to call it my home sweet home (I want to call it my home) I want to chuckle and laugh, but you can't hear me laugh 'Cause there isn't an atmosphere I want to chuckle and laugh, but you can't hear me laugh 'Cause there isn't an atmosphere I wanna live on the moon (With you)

Spoken: To lovers the moon is a thing of beauty But to this man it is a deadly curse When the moon is full This miserable wretch turns into a hairy, snarling, half-man, half-beast He prowls the night, thirsty for human blood He is a werewolf Coincidence? Hardly Empirical evidence Demonstrate precisely By way of experiment To determine properties (energies) Energies (potentially) Potentially waiting inside When werewolves collide Terrible danger Tragical consequence Could it be stranger? There could be violence And the moon is devilish (I swear it is) I swear it is (Moving around) Moving around in the sky When werewolves collide Everything's blurry Kind of approximate (Kind of approximate) Everyone's worried Somebody talk to it (Somebody talk to it) It's a shame The scientists And specialists And not a solution in sight When werewolves collide He is a werewolf

Goodbye, my 4-track Goodbye microphones No more songs about noodles and fish No more references to telephones, so Goodbye, my 4-track Goodbye everyone It's been fun, but I gotta run So goodbye I just wanna sit around and do nothing all day, yeah But that don't seem to be keeping the utilities paid You know, things don't always go the way you want them to and, whether or not you like it, that's the way it is. There's no avoiding it. If you believe in all that destiny crap, well I'll tell you - you can't change it. But even if you feel like there's no hope in the entire bloody world, there's always that one little thing you should always remember. What that is, well, I forget, but the point is this: it doesn't matter whether or not things go right all the time 'cause it's not all your fault anyway, so- so cheer up and stop feeling so bad of yourself, you big baby head! I just wanna sit around and do nothing all day But that don't seem to be keeping the utilities paid Goodbye, my 4-track Goodbye everyone It's been fun, but I gotta run So goodbye (Goodbye, goodbye) April fools

about

This album is the reason Needlejuice exists.

Logan Whitehurst was a songwriting, graphic designing, multi-instrument beholding wizard of the light-heartedly absurd. He was known as the drummer for bands like Little Tin Frog and The Velvet Teen, but it was his original work that struck a chord with us (watch out comedy professionals over here). His music was an ever-changing stew of genre, his lyrics could be silly and hilarious on one track then poignant and beautiful on the next.

In December 2006, Logan passed away from brain cancer at 29. We, along with all his fans, were devastated. In the years since, we’ve covered his songs, mimicked his unquestionably unique style, and even named an award after him, all the while cherishing the work he left behind.

Though Logan released many albums in his lifetime, few held together as a concise piece of art quite like 2003’s Goodbye, My 4-Track. The 21-track masterpiece deftly portrayed the full breadth of Logan’s talent. Dr. Demento has even referred to it as the “Sgt. Pepper’s of comedy music”.

The album has been a favorite of ours these past 12 years. Going back to it elicits the same feeling of wonderment it had upon first listen. Late last year, we realized that it never was given a proper LP release. In essence, it was the whole impetus behind starting this label in the first place.

And so, with the support and assistance of Logan’s family and friends, Needlejuice is reissuing Goodbye, My 4-Track on CD, and issuing on cassette and LP for the first time. It’s an honor and privilege to be able to put this out.
