"Glorious" as written by Kim Deal and Ray Halliday....
Da-da...
Ahhh...

Hold my breath for three more years
Yeah, three years
On my own on Saturdays

It's glorious
It's glorious

We were tired from the sleep
Scrabbled and we slept
Through the window came the rain

It's glorious
It's glorious
It's glorious
It's glorious

It's glorious
It's glorious

Being tired from the sleep
Hold my breath for three more year
Yeah, three years
On my own on Saturdays

It's glorious
It's glorious
It's glorious
It's glorious

    General Commentit makes me think of saturday's depression mood, but the kind which strangely feels euphoric and glorious.

    My InterpretationSaturday has finally come. [The person] has survived the week. Saturday's typically a day off. A quiet day. Get some of your own work (hobbies n' such) progress, but instead, you sleep. You sleep for so long and into the afternoon. It feels good, getting plenty of sleep. Feels like it's been a few years. You sleep throughout the weekend, til you're waken up by life. But these days are glorious.

    General CommentThe word after "we were tired from the" and "being tired from the" is actually "tea", not "sleep".
    Jo (bassist of the Breeders) mentioned that when she was talking to Kim about the lyrics she "rather liked the scene she depicts of an afternoon spent drinking tea and playing Scrabble." She then said that Kim paused, then explained "it was mushroom tea...".
