From Allmusic:
There's nothing new under the sun, especially in the world of rock & roll, and thank heaven for that. The Dollyrots are certainly nothing new -- no genre-transgressing experiments, no incongruous fusions, no mind-expanding instrumental solos or side-long suites. Just 13 tight, compact, sweet, and crunchy bursts of punky power pop. Imagine the Ramones with a girl singer and more than three chords (but not much more), or maybe Belly if Tanya Donelly didn't have that weird death thing going on. Eat My Heart Out starts off with a bang, with a brilliantly ambivalent kiss-off song titled "Kick Me to the Curb," then proceeds from strength to strength: "Jackie Chan" is just what you'd expect, a charmingly trashy celebration of kung fu movies in the guise of a breakup song; "Goodnight Tonight" couches sweetly adolescent love lyrics in grungy guitar noise over a 6/8 beat; the lyrics to "Dance With Me" read like they're probably supposed to be suggestive, but they just come across as innocently longing. Then they end the whole thing with a fantastic aggro arrangement of the Ronnie Spector classic "Be My Baby." Singer Kelly Ogden is what really makes this band work -- her voice is clear and sharp, and her delivery is by turns sweet and snotty. Very highly recommended.

Track Name: Kick Me to the Curb
You only wake me
Up when youre hungry
Ill make some dinner but not today
You only take me
When you get lonely
Into the sunshine where we can play

And then well light a cigarette, for two
Maybe well ride on handlebars, so new
Go on and give it to me

Yeah Yeah, just kick me to the
Yeah Yeah, just kick me to the
Yeah Yeah Yeah just kick me to the curb
Thats what Im needing

You only spank me
When I get naughty
Sometimes my manners they go astray
You only thank me
When you get greedy
You know Ill take you back so its okay
Track Name: Love You Most
Tonight’s the night
You said you’d tell me that you love me
And though I try
I can’t believe that you’ll still want me
Enough’s enough
Don’t know that past tonight I’ll be your one

The dead flowers
You left upon my doorstep sweetly
Should I reply
With gentle kisses or so scaredly
Enough’s enough
Don’t know that past tonight I’ll be your one

You tell me yours is more than
Mine, although, I know that
I love you most
Wish I could deny
I love you most
Wish I could deny I love you

And on my neck
The bite you left has started bruising
So go ahead
Is it my fear or you I’m losing
Enough’s enough
Don’t know that past tonight I’ll be your one
Track Name: Jackie Chan
You left me for a cheap tart
Totally heartless
You said you wanted a new start
But I'm not defenseless

I know Kung Fu
Not afraid to use it on you
I'm gonna whoop your ass
'cuz I can fight like Jackie Chan
Oh Yeah
Gonna fight fight fight fight fight
Like Jackie Chan!

You thought that you were safe
Then you made me cry
I got dumped and I lost face
Now you're gonna die!

You thought you could get away with breaking my heart?
Listen up, I'm coming after you
With nunchucks and an attitude
You won't be laughing, Ding-Dong
When I'm jumping around with your boys in my hand
Laughing...COVERED IN BLOOD

You ran right over my cat
Now I hate your guts
Your chick's ugly and a brat
Gonna crush your nuts!
Track Name: Wreckage
Every time I see you
Maybe I don’t wanna be
Caught up in the wreckage
Caught up in the wreckage

When I’m swerving out the road
And I’m blinking at not thinking
Stop short gas pedal low
And she’s thinking about winking
Will she start to stop
Will she skip my block for me, just me

Telephone yapping
Foot gas tapping
Singing to the radio
Song it’s blasting
chorus lasting
And she doesn’t even know

Every time I see you
Maybe I don’t wanna be
Caught up in the wreckage,
Caught up in the wreckage (too)

Chrome and green not built for two
Not drinking but not thinking
Scraped knee bent wheel again
And I’m thinking about screaming
Will she start to stop
Will she skip my block for me, just me
Track Name: Feed Me, Pet Me
My pets with claws
They're always kinda angry at me
Inside their paws
They hide the razors they wave slowly

They never pause
From giving me some sweet attention
On skin it gnaws
So much that now I never mention

Ooohh, look at the face she's making
Ooohh, don't bother her she's waking

FEED ME, PET ME
FEED ME, PET ME
FEED ME, PET ME
MEOW

My pets with claws
They always tell me how to treat them
By treat I mean
The kind you give to praise their doings

They never pause
From giving me some sweet attention
On skin it gnaws
So much that now I never mention

Ooohh, look at the face she's making
Ooohh, don't bother her she's waking

FEED ME, PET ME
FEED ME, PET ME
FEED ME, PET ME
MEOW
Track Name: Penny
Looking down thought i saw a penny
Something tells me it wasn't red
Spun around wishing to see clearly
Happens to me now and then

When i wait
In the afternoon
Waiting for my, waiting for my
They say it's come so soon
Waititng for my, waiting for my

Favorite one to swing on by
in the hot rod woah oh ohoh

Spun up near me looking sweaty
Just about when i was done
Maybe we'll forget to hurry
Nevermind we'll have our fun
Track Name: Goodnight Tonight
Tonight, my darling I'm waiting
Tonight, sleepy I'm fading
Tonight, wish on a shooting star
Tonight, I'm wishing for you

Holding me sweetly
Cozy comepletely
Sweaty like babies sleep
Tonight
Tonight with you

Tonight, my heart you are stealing
Tonight, nervous with feeling
Tonight, innocent side by side
Tonight, I'm dreaming with you

Holding me sweetly
Cozy comepletely
Sweaty like babies sleep
Tonight
Tonight with you

With you
My darling
Track Name: Dance With Me
Sometimes I just can’t get cozy
My heart it pounds and my cheeks get rosy for you…. I’ll wait
Stuck here in my little palace
My mind it races can’t keep the pace but for you… I’ll wait

Brings me right back here again
Where I can’t be true
Brings me right back here again
Don’t know what to do

Do you wanna
Dance with me (He’s always late)
Dance with me (He made me wait)
But at least (He’s never coming early)
(NONONONO)

Sniffle but my nose keeps running
The clock it’s ticking can’t stop this longing for you…
I’ll wait
Inside here it’s hot and sticky
With musk too sweet to pretend it’s dreamy for you…
I’ll wait
Track Name: New College
Katherine’s in her own world she’s an E head with blue hair
And streaking through the party showing off her underwear yeah
Keeps dancing, no quitting
Chewing on the candy necklace soaked because she’s sweating

Silence is a dealer sort of hippie with a bag
That’s filled and overflowing with his special kind of shwag Yeah
He’s way too deep in it
Always getting asked so he can never ever finish

And though you tell me that I’m the one
I know you shouldn’t be taking me home, alone
Because I’m gonna

Get you, get you, get you, get you what you need
Get you, get you, get you, get you so tell me
You’ll be my Sid again
And I’ll be Nancy Spungen whoah oh

Josh sits on the bench and smoking seven packs a day
He’s just an alcoholic but he’s got a lot to say and
Keeps filling and turning
Blue so in the morning he can’t eat because he’s hurling

Julia spent all her money powdering her nose
She’s not letting go
She’s stripping at Pleasures
For her upper habits that her tiny scale will measure
Track Name: Promised Call
Woke up about five o'clock
Had myself a veggie dog and said
Don't stop
Don't stop
Don't rot so pretty stop and say

Slept through that buzzing sound
My schedule's turned around because
Don't stop
Don't stop
Don't stop until I hear the ring

You hate me, don't wanna
I like it, I gotta
Cos staying up is not worthwhile
Waiting for that

Promised call from you
That promised call from you
That promised call from you
Oh no, woah oh oh oh

Spend my time at the store
That's open twenty-four and
I bought,I bought
A lot of semi-permanent

Hair dyes and magazines
Burned eyes and gasoline 'cause
Don't stop
Don't stop
Don't stop until I hear you ring
Track Name: Skinny
Know you wanna feed it
Asks you to relieve it
Turnin' and-a squirmin'
Making me go throwing up- and up - and up

Numb from all the feeling
Thoughts inside stop reeling
Hundred pounds and bony
Third time today throwin' up - and up - and up

'Cause I'm not gonna do it again
I'm not gonna do it again
I'm not gonna do it again
And I'm hungry

Skinny girls a-walkin'
Lecherous men a-gawkin'
Reinforce their thinkin'
Making them go throwing up - and up - and up

Fifth grade after lunch
There goes the vomit bunch
In the stalls a-pukin'
Everybody's throwing up - and up - and up

They're screwing up the little girls
Track Name: Nobody Else
Wrote a note and you sent it through your best friend
It was cute couldn't give it me in person
Asked me if i would go with you to canters
iIsaid yes though it wasn's to my standards

And though you're talking to me softly
Can't know tomorrow you will call me
And just in case you leave me after all
I'll be saying

I want you now i won't recover
If you're untrue i will remember
It's you i gave
All of myself, nobody else

Later on we were talking and you charmed me
Sign me up i'm enlisting in your army
Swept me off my eyes and undercovers
Close to you and i didn't want another

And so to ensure your behavior
You're gonna have to sign a waiver
So since all my doubt has gone away I
Won't now or ever will be saying
Track Name: Alpha Mansion (Digital Bonus Track)
You're struttin like you're special
The game's not even mental
Beggin for a dose of my reality
Driving like a racecar
The town thinks you're a big star
But really you're so far from my good cup of tea

Something isn't right I see it
Hoping for something to beat it
Ooh why why why
Education lacking mongers
I hope you don't breed anger
Ooh why why why

Oh cos you're so handsome
In your alpha mansion
I don't want to be your girl

Says she doesn't want to
Still you're gonna try to
Can't imagine yours she wouldn't want to be
The gang's all acting macho
Taking on the John Doe
Thinking he's the lesser of humanity

Don't want to be your girl
Track Name: Little Black Book (Digital Bonus Track)
Saw you there when I caught your eye
Didn't think you'd be something to try
Because my little black book's full of guys
Give me less flowers than they give me lies then

Something happened and it made me think
He wrote me notes using blood not ink and then I
Figured that boy deserved a chance
So I took him to that special dance and

As I kissed him bye that night
I thought tomorrow I'd see him again
Until then I'll dream of him
Until then I'll dream of him
All night long long whoah oh oh a-oh

Picked me up in his daddy's car
Drove around underneath the stars
And then he held me close on the dance floor
I knew it's him I would adore
I knew it's him I would adore and

Missed him so and I just couldn't stand it
Through the window in his bed I landed
Well I knew this boy deserved a chance
So I took him to that special dance
Took him to that special dance and
Track Name: This Crush (Digital Bonus Track)
I see him there
Why do I care
His reputation warns me
To be with him
Fulfill his whim
And hope he keeps me maybe

This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for me

We're doin' fine
I shouldn't mind
And when he leaves me waiting
To be untrue
Oh what to do
I know he'll soon be paying

This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for me

All I wanna know
Is should I let him go
Or kill him tonight in his sleep
No matter what my choice
He won't be taking me

Was my boyfriend
With her again
I guess my turn is over
I knew better
He may love her
So now he has another

This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for me
