Lyrics of the whenever!

I thought I would check out one of the most recent additions to the Lollapalooza line-up, Ben Kweller. I am excited to have come across a song about a girl named Liz!! This is very exciting for me in the nerdiest way possible. It's also a pretty cool tune.

Lizzy

sign me up, i volunteer
votes are in for lifeguard of the year
her feline past lives are plain to see
their similarities are shown in this life again

like mama said, dontcha let it go to your head
when ya know you're being fed
i'm so proud to know you
lizzy, i'll write, i'll sing
telegraph, telegram
telephone, tellin' you
i'll be home soon
dienu

we will wake when kitty licks
and in the morn, work takes her to maine
dressed and out the door by six
tomorrow is the first time liz can't board my plane

like mama said, dontcha let it go to your head
when ya know your book is read
i'm so proud to know you
anna will take me to the port
as liz drives up i-95
me and my darlin' keep love alive
even on texas time

like mama said, dontcha let it go to your head
when your town is painted red
i'm so proud to know you
lizzy, i'll write, i'll sing
telegraph, telegram
telephone, tellin' you
i'll be home soon
dienu

There's nothin' nerdy about loving something with your name. It's human nature, baby, and it's a beautiful thing. Cuz someone knows how to love a Liz right, that's a lovely thing!

Yes I decided early on that Dizzy Miss Lizzy didn't count...
