1. Hannah Hold On – The Get Up Kids

I never asked to be sorry
If it’s over, it’s over for sure
I don’t regret that I didn’t want to
Remember what all this was for

So this is all we can do
What news is in store
How come starting over
Could be frowned on anymore

Hannah hold on
Hannah hold on

It’s all been said
It’s all been done

I never witnessed bitter like this
I think I’ve been shot in cold blood
You won’t admit it and I won’t be around
Just so I hear the applause

This isn’t all we can do
When in doubt should move on
No need to sort it all out
By the time you read this I’ll be gone

Hannah hold on
Hannah hold on

It’s all been said
It’s all been done
Hang on
Hang on
Hang on

You only disappoint the ones who don’t believe
You only disappoint the ones who don’t believe

Hannah hold on
Hannah hold on
Hannah hold on
Hannah hold on

I never asked to be sorry
If it’s over, it’s over for sure

My new motto: Disappoint those who don’t believe in you.

2. Hard-Hearted Hannah – Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, etc.

In old Savannah
I said Savannah
The weather there is nice and warm
The climate’s of a Southern brand
But here’s what I don’t understand

They got a gal there
A pretty gal there
Who’s colder than an arctic storm
Got a heart just like a stone
Even ice men leave her alone

They call her
Hard-hearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Leather is tough, but Hannah’s heart is tougher
She’s a gal who loves to see men suffer

To tease them and thrill them
To torture and kill them
Is her delight, they say
I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan
There was Hannah, pouring water on a drowning man
She’s hard-hearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah, GA

They call her hard-hearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Talk of your cold, refrigerating mamas
Brother, she’s the polar bear’s pajamas

To tease them and thrill them
To torture and kill them
Is her delight, they say
An evening spent with Hannah sitting on your knees
Is like traveling through Alaska in your BVD’s

She’s hard-hearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah, GA
Can you imagine a woman as cold as Hannah?
She’s got the right name, the Vamp of Savannah
Any time a woman can take a great big pan
Start pouring water on a drowning man
She’s hard-hearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah, GA

Ooh, she’s sweet as sour milk!

I wanted to bolden the interesting parts of the song, but I realised the entire song would be in bold.
