"Harriet's Got A Song" as written by and Kweller....
I don't stand a chance in this fucked-up world
New school took romance and messed it up real bad
But your brand new eyes shrink me to a size
Make it hard to see my reality

You say I'm blind
I think you're wrong
Harriet's got a song
When we combine
Nothing goes wrong
Harriet's got a song

Scare myself sometimes
Lead me to the light
Pet and let me know it'll be alright
Watch me dive right into the shallow end
"Won't you be my friend? Won't you be my neighbor?"

You say I'm blind
I think you're wrong
Harriet's got a song
When we combine
Nothing goes wrong
Harriet's got a song

Do do do do

Going off on me
Not only can I see
Memorized your scent, everywhere you went
Join our Wiccan church
Blaze the Satchel Perch
Everywhere you go, 100%

You say I'm blind
I think you're wrong
Harriet's got a song
When we collide
Nothing goes wrong
Harriet's got a song, got a song

    General Commentgood song, but theres some mistakes in the lyrics..

    I don't stand a chance in this fucked up world
    New school took romance and messed it up real bad
    But your brand new eyes
    Shrink me to a size
    Make it hard to see, my reality

    You say I'm blind
    I think you're wrong
    Harriet's got a song
    When we combine
    Nothing goes wrong
    Harriet's got a song

    Scare myself sometimes
    Lead me to the light
    Pet and let me know
    It'll be alright
    Watch me dive right into the shallow end
    Won't you be my friend?
    Won't you be my neighbor?


    You say I'm blind
    I think you're wrong
    Harriet's got a song
    When we combine
    Nothing goes wrong
    Harriet's got a song

    Dododododododododododo
    Ooooooooo
    Let's go

    Going off on me
    Not only can I see
    Memorize your scent
    Everywhere you went
    Join our wiccan church
    Blaze the satchel perch
    Everywhere you go
    100 percent

    You say I'm blind
    I think you're wrong
    Harriet's got a song
    When we collide
    Nothing goes wrong
    Harriet's got a song
    Got a song
