My love for you would eclipse even the most obese Meet me at the drive-thru or I can dine-in with you You'll see what you mean to me Now that you're here if you left, I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now you're here if you left, I would be the loneliest guy in the world The day you bring some guy home, he better be pristine If I caught you kissing that guy would got missing and I would do seven years Now that you're here if you left, I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now you're here if you left, I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now that you're here if you left, I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now you're here if you left, I would be the loneliest guy in the world

I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Not worth trying You still lay dying Can't help but crying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Not worth trying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you You still lay dying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Can't help but crying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Not worth trying

When I was eight they had the opening scenes to the show Have him dive through a gate and do a roll before his name would explode He had the mullet from Nam but then got shot in the arm He set that Murdock on fire to try to do him some harm Well oh yeah He was mean He deserved everything Richard Dean Anderson played his final show When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode Pete was a Burger King how was he to know? When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode When I was nine I heard the news that they tried not to expose A bomb did explode and blew his mullet all the way down the road He mixed the blue with the red and cut the black wire instead The only mistake he made was too much stuff in his head Well oh yeah Now it’s known the Stargate guy is a clone Richard Dean Anderson played his final show When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode Pete was a Burger King how was he to know? When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode But the pocketknife lives on But the pocketknife lives on But the pocketknife lives on But the pocketknife lives on

Poppa George 03:23
You’re 66 years old You’ve got the scars to prove And if it wasn’t fact I would guess you were 22 I’ve known you for a while You’ve always got a smile You always give me a handshake or hug me when we meet You’re the coolest guy I’ve ever met Everyone likes you You’re old but so much fun to have around I hope you never leave town Throughout my teens you wrote so many cards and notes Checking that everything’s fine and I can call you anytime You’re in your 90th year So many hold you so dear You’re a picture of grace I just wanted a chance to say You’re the coolest guy I’ve ever met Everyone likes you You’re old but so much fun to have around I hope you never leave town You’re the coolest guy I’ve ever met Everyone likes you You’re old but so much fun to have around I hope you never leave town I hope you never leave town I hope you never leave town I hope you never leave town

I had the perfect birthday I wagged school to be with my girlfriend Yeah-yeah She came down especially so I hung with her when I would normally hang with Steve Yeah-yeah I’m sick of saying goodbye when she has to leave I’m sick of waving as she drives away from me I’m sick of singing sad songs in a major key And I’m sick of being lonely That night at six thirty I had dinner with her family Yeah-yeah What the hell am I eating? Why’m I talking bout the weather? Am I spastic? Yeah-yeah I’m sick of saying goodbye when she has to leave I’m sick of waving as she drives away from me I’m sick of singing sad songs in a major key And I’m sick of being lonely Cause it sucks to be lonely I don’t want to be lonely I don’t want to be lonely

Fine 00:57
“Everything is fine” was her most common line She made it sound so real but fine she did not feel “Everything is fine” I can’t believe she lied Every time that I would talk to her she’d say “I’m having a great day Thanks for asking man but everything is fine” I can’t believe she lied You’ve been a while gone but still you carry on When it rains a flood too deep and the mountains are too steep You’ll scream this regret “I wish I never left” Every time we meet and every time you say “I’m having a great day” Now I’m wise to all the ways you cover truth I will see right through

Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, I’d rather die Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, I’d rather die I’d rather die Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, I’d rather die Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, never turning back Never gunna turn back, I’d rather die I’d rather die

I wrote a poem of what you mean to me but the words weren’t as cool as they should have been I drew a picture but it was a mess and I posted it off to the wrong address Dave, John, Fieldy, Munky and Head gave me the coolest idea that I’ve ever had In my haste I wrote a song called 'Dead' but it’s never as cool as it is in my head I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know woah I’m not the coolest guy I know
