think about what you've got and compare it to what i've got
now what do you think my girl wants, my girl wants
think about what i've got and compare it to what you've got
what do you think my girl wants, my girl wants
what do you think my girl wants?

don't call her lazy cause she's crazy 'bout the daytime tv
channel 3 look at me, i'm a real wheel watcher
they think i'm smart, they think it's art but then i start with a crash
i'm just a brash trash talker

i like some funky drums but i hate some clunky drummers
and i saw what your girl did last summer

she said it looks like a binge she said it felt like a blast
woke up in the grass with the assless chaps
looks like a blast she said it felt like a binge
woke up with your friend in the indian fringes
bring on the bedspins, bring on the mini-thins
bring on the bedspins, bring on the mini-thins
and she was bombed on the bass and the bombay gin
she stumbled in

that's when she said she says it's great gettin high
i want everybody who's been eyeing my girl to slowly close their eyes
said it's great gettin high
i want everybody who's been eyeing my girl to slowly close their eyes
and think about what you've got compare it to what i've got and ask yourself
what do you think my girl wants?

    General CommentI haven't actually heard the song yet but these lyrics are awesome. Of course I can't get a real feel for them yet without the music because the band might make it feel different but I just thought I should add something...this band doesn't have any posts yet... :)

    General Comment"Think about what I've got and compare it to what you've got,
    What do you think my girl wants, my girl wants?"

    Two ways to read that:

    1.) He's bragging about what he has, likely access to drugs or money, and he's reaffirming his relationship with this crazy chick.

    2.) It's a statement of insecurity/pleading. He recognizes he isn't that good of a boyfriend, but she's with him for one reason right now. Likely drugs. With this reading, I get kind of a "Jolene" like plead. "You guys can take her from me, but please don't.

    Based on the rest of the song, there's evidence to support both readings. I think the second reading might be more correct, but hard to tell. He shows submissiveness and defensiveness as he defends her for not working and watching daytime TV.

    But the very next line supports the first reading:
    "They think I'm smart,
    They think it's art but then i start with a crash
    I'm just a brash trash talker"
