a. Father adilla Meets the Perfect Gnat
b. Howling at the Moon
This foolish game, oh it's still the same
The notes go dancin' off in the air
And don't you believe it's ture, the music is all for you
It's really all we've got to share
'Cause Rockin' and Rollin', it's only howlin' at the Moon.
It's only howlin' at the Moon.
c. Man Overboard
d. Industry on Parade
e. Release the Beavers
f. Gnat Attack
