"Adopduction" as written by and Seth Jabour Harrison Haynes....
Kidnapped!
I was kidnapped.
I dreamed I was kidnapped.
By a guy with a moustache

And a chick with an eyepatch
Who though they could trade me back
For some quick cash.
But when they relayed the bargain

My family said,
"we'll pay half that"

the haggling went on for days,
The days went on for weeks
And weeks for years.
Riding in the trunk was never fun

But soon I plum ran out of tears.
They camped us in the woods
We cooked canned goods
They never threatened me with pain.

They treated cops politely
Driving nightly
Always using coded names.
So if slowly I could trust them

Dare I say it even love them
Who's to blame.

I learned my alphabet
And letterset while setting up
My latest ransom note.
They got me correspondence classes,

Got me glasses,
Gave me dropcloths in the cold.
My fondest memories
Are from my hostage crises

I know it's strange.
Although we got so close
You know they never even
Told me their real names.

    General Commentbut when they relayed the bargain

    how sad is that? i love this song,

    QUINZE> i kinda agree. especially with the line: "altho we got so close, you know they never even thold me their real names" you just know them as mum & dad, so you can't really know that much about them?
    either way, i love it.

    General CommentMy favourite Les Savy Fav song. From memory i think this song was based on a dream harrington had one night. Whether or not this holds any real truth to harringtons relationship with his parents, i think people out there can definately relate to these lyrics.

    PS - Aren't his play of words, phrases and rhymes just outstanding! (this goes for all LSF songs)

    General CommentThis song is great. I love Les Savy Fav! My parents would probably only pay half a ransom to get me back too.

    General CommentI actually had to creat an account to say this. To me the guy with the moustache and the chick with an eyepatch became his "adopted parents" for a time. Who he loved possibly more than his real parents. or maybe the song is just about having a relationship with adoptive parents.

    General CommentNo actually, whats going on here is Stockholme syndrome, the psychological phenemona where captives grow attached to their kidnappers.
