Also for the photogamer group word of the day: BOX

I got a three-fer out of this one.

 

I'd been wanting to do this song for a while, and when I saw the word box at photogamer.com, I figured this was my chance. When I tell you Todd and I listen to this song about 40 times in a row every time we are in my car, I'm not exaggerating. It is, without a doubt, my very favorite QOTSA song.

 

It's got everything - a killer rythmn, including some fun hand-clapping, a cool bass line, it's so much fun to sing. The lyrics are nasty and cruel and very fuck you - singing them over this happy sounding, upbeat music is almost funny.

 

I've got wine and so do you.

Mine came with a cork,

I wish yours did too.

 

Everyone just loves you so,

Well hurray!

Now you know where to go.

 

In my head you're all brand new,

I guess you're really all the same.

In my head you're all brand new,

Tell your new boy where i came.

In my head you're all brand new,

I just didn't want what you gave.

In my head you're all brand new,

Go and find yourself another slave.

 

There you are.

Ooohh you're so in love, just like Juliette,

Well guess what?

That's one thing that you can for-fucking-get.

 

Tears from the sky,

In pools of pain.

Well baby tonite, I'm gonna go and dance in the rain.

 

In my head you're all brand new,

I guess you're really all the same.

In my head you're all brand new,

Tell your new boy where i came.

In my head you're all brand new,

Take that broken pussy elsewhere.

In my head you're all brand new,

Save it baby, I don't care.

By the way, Susan has joined me in photo/music obsession and is doing a Kinks photo a day!
