Susanne, you're all that I wanted of a girl
You're all that I need in the world
I'm your child
Make me blush
Drive me wild
Suzanne, you're all that I wanted

When I met you I was all alone
Cold and hungry crying on the phone
You baked me brownies and said "don't you cry"
And gave me the coat off your back

Susanne, you're all that I wanted of a girl
You're all that I need in the world
I'm your child
Make me blush
Drive me wild
Suzanne, you're all that I wanted

Even Izzy, Slash, and Axl Rose
When I call you put 'em all on hold
And say to me that you'd do anything
And all I can do is say that I haven't much
I can give you in return
Only my heart and I promise not to turn
I sing to you, every day and every night
Susanne, I'm your man

Susanne, you're all that I wanted of a girl
You're all that I need in the world
I'm your child
Make me blush
Drive me wild
Susanne, you're all that I wanted of a girl

    General CommentSpeaking of Kevin Smith's 'Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back' when the pair are talking to Ben Affleck's 'Holden' character you hear the Weezer song 'Pink Triangle' in the background. Of course this song is about falling for a lesbian and that's what happened to Affleck in Kevin Smith's third movie 'Chasing Amy' Yet another Weezer-Smith tie-in

    General Commentquoted from the booklet in the new Blue Album Deluxe Edition by Weezer : "suzane was a talented A&R assistnat at Geffen. in the long months of limbo between completeing the blue album in october '93 and its eventual release in may '94 she became a big weezer supporter, doing her best to keep the guys optimistic about their future with geffen. as the lyrics impy, suzanne did in fact help rivers out with her spare winter coat when he needed one, and made plates of brownies to c heer him up. her dovotion and aid were perfectly summed up in thei song. before she knew of the songs' existence the guys perfeormed it a cappella for her in her GEffen office. heedless to say it surprised the hell out of her!

    originally the line 'even izzy slash and axl rose, when i call you put 'em all on hold' read 'even kurt cobain and axl rose..." in april '94 the shocking news came of kurt's untimely death. though the two had never met rivers had found great inspriation in kurts songwriting on nirvana's "bleach". so when it came time to record 'susanne' rivers decided to change the lyric, not wanting to disrespect the memory of one who had been such an inspiration."

    General Commenti would change my name to suzanne if it meant someone would sing this to me. its just so cute, it doesn't talk about how pretty she is, or how rich she is, she is just a genuine good person. and so is he.

    General CommentSimply a love song. The line with Izzy, Slash, and Axl Rose...I have to give props to Rivers for embracing the G-N-R.

    Also, remember that this song was written for the Mallrats soundtrack? Well if you paid attention in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, then you noticed (along with a thousand other references to Smith's previous movies) that the monkey they steal is named "Suzanne". A little weezer/kevin smith trivia for that ass.
