From early show - Little House I Used To Live In (Incl. Penis Dimension) - Mud Shark Variations (Incl. Penis Dimension Recall) - Holiday In Berlin (with lyrics)(Incl. Would You Like A Snack?) - Inca Roads / Easy Meat (just approx. 60 seconds here, but 7 min. on Tenga...) - Cruisin For Burgers - Concentration Moon - Palladin Routine
