"25 Cent Giraffes" as written by Scot Golley, Daniel Benjamin Yemin, David J Palaitis, Ari Zev Katz and Peter M Martin....
1, 2, 3, 4. It was too loud to hear what you were thinking.
And somehow I knew I would be sleeping alone tonight,
But I figured that's alright.
Could you still walk home with me?

I don't want to be wondering.
You couldn't keep me here.
It's you or two months on the road.
Just two months waiting by the phone.

She grew wings and I grew wheels.
And now the dust covers my heels.
You couldn't keep me here.
It's you or two months on the road.

Just two months waiting by the phone.
She grew wings and I grew wheels.
And now the dust covers my heels.
I sent your letter next day air.

No-dozed a lot and sat and stared.
I couldn't make it fifty pages in that book.
I'll pull into town when the saddest sun sets down.
And I'll see you at the show.

I hope you'll go.
You'll be there just waiting for me.
Just waiting for me.
I'll pull into town when the saddest sun sets down.

And I'll see you at the show.

    General Commentnot really.. but, a lot of them have to do with girls. anyway, it's obvious as hell what this song is about. i think the title has something to do with those cheap novelty gifts you can buy at tourist traps.. even though they seem pretty useless, they still hold a kind of sentimental value, depending on who you give it to.

    General CommentI found this video of them playing the song acoustic:
    photozou.jp/photo/show/143376/…

    I listened to the part that isn't in the lyric sheet and it sounds like this:

    i knew i could
    the night we drove your car through hollywood
    i knew all the nights
    and all the words would make me think of her
