Don't put it down, put it away
a place for everything and everything in it's place

Leave it as you found it
Cleanliness is next to Godliness
Tidy is the first full Album by Kinnie Starr. It was released in 1996 in Canada by Violet Inch Records. Later that year Mercury Records picked it up for limited release in the United States.

The inside of the CD booklet has the song lyrics, with the edges decorated with pictures of Kinnie and her friends. It also has the required thanks to other people and copyright notices, along with a random smattering of quotes, such as "The only way to fail is if you don't try." - New Kindgom

The outside contains a number of colour paintings done by Kinnie.

All of her albums contain the following statement:

"Protect Yourself
hey girls... DON'T USE TAMPONS. they release dioxins (bleach) into your insides. check the stats for Toxic Shock Syndrome & female reproductive disorders. is convenience more important than YOUR BODY?

tell other women
PROTECT EACH OTHER"

Track Listing:

1 - Grandma's Bicycle
2 - Ophelia
3 - Stiff Sour Lemon Rind
4 - Leons
5 - Um... ah...
6 - Spring Again
7 - Rime Gone Rong
8 - Woven
9 - Month of Trickery
10 - Simple

There is an untitled and unlisted twelfth track which consists of Kinnie doing spoken word.

Spoken Word:

Some girls wear their hair up off their lovely faces
and some gaze straight ahead because they are trying to go places

Sometimes we go together and other times apart
but I'd like to think that we hold our fists up
trying to make a new start

Here is a story about walking the other day
and every day is special but some things just never change you see

he looks at she
she looks away ok
hips sway
why is every day a boy day?

he looks at she
she looks away ok
hips sway
I guess it's another boy day

and we could call it out when it doesn't suit us both
cause there's a magnitude of choices
and a really big boat and that big boat floats on a restless ocean
singing about the chances of protective devotion

for the girlfriend who stands on the street waitin' on a trick
and some man demands that she lift her skirt quick

she's got a mother
a daughter
and a lover
you tell me why she shouldn't have safe cover

she's got a mother
a daughter
and a lover
you tell me why she shouldn't have safe cover

cause if the laws made sense
she would have a legal fence
to keep her clientele clean
and she could still pay the rent

she's got a mother
a daughter
and a lover
you tell me why she shouldn't have safe cover

she's got a mother
a daughter
and a lover
you tell me why she shouldn't have safe cover

now
my skin is green
some think it's italian that gives me that sheen
and i have to thank my father
for the proud red blood that makes me mean but see

boy on the street's got his eyes pinned onto me
buttons unbuttoned in his head he wants to see
the shades
and the sizes
the hand prints
shoe fits

shades
sizes
hand prints
shoe fits
the shades
the sizes
the hand prints
shoe fits
and off with the underwear my dreamy smell lies there

but
this is not fair
cause he penetrates me with his stare

this is not fair
cause he
penetrates me
with his stare

cause i wanna walk down the long past the flowers
i wanna sing songs that mesmerize for hours
i wanna feel the freedom to be sexy
without his eyes sliding all up and under me

i wanna feel the freedom to be sexy
without his eyes sliding all up under into me

buttons unbuttoned in his head
what does he see?
