"Hoopes I Did It Again" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
[liner note:]
it's a typical cloudy day in canton, ohio, and the relient k boys are trying to score something to do.
matt t. gives dave's cell a phone call.

[*cell phone ring*]
what's up dude?
i'm getting kind of bored
let's get some food
and then hit movies 4
what's going on?
what's up with all our friends?
let's start a rumor
just to find out where it ends

cause a small town is like a small stage
for teenagers and their drama
instead of playing shows, we'll be showing plays
like 90210 without the beverly hills

well, don't you think (don't you think), don't you think it's high time
that we never settle down (never settle down)
well, don't you think (don't you think), don't you think it's high time
that we get out of this town (get out of this town)
cause if we leave then we just might be okay

hoopes i did it again
i messed everything up, and i think i hurt my friends
hoopes i did it again
relationships that work are things that i can't comprehend

ohio has the flavor of a water chestnut
it's not too crazy and it's not the best but
we're not setting forest fires just out of boredom
i'd rather see a movie if in fact i can afford one

cause a small town is like a small stage
for teenagers and their drama
instead of playing shows, we'll be showing plays
like 90210 without the beverly hills

well, don't you think (don't you think), don't you think it's high time
that we never settle down (never settle down)
well, don't you think (don't you think), don't you think it's high time
that we get out of this town (get out of this town)

cause if we leave then we just might make a difference
and if we leave then we just might be okay
and i don't think it would hurt to get away

hoopes i did it again
i messed everything up, and i think i hurt my friends
hoopes i did it again
relationships that work are things that i can't comprehend

dan bakitus said i'm shallow
he said i've got no integrity
but, i don't know dan bakitus
and dan bakitus, he don't know me

cause we always say in canton
you can't enjoy (canton joy) yourself
well, there's truth to that
but may i add
it's not half bad
and never less than that

cause we always say in canton
you can't enjoy (canton joy) yourself
well, there's truth to that
but may i add
it's not half bad
and never less than that

    General CommentI'm from canton so this song is the Sh'it. Like for most people who arnt from there wont get the little inside jokes, but yeah. Movies 4 is a theater that only costs a dollar, and on wednsdays its 50 cents. And like it's a pretty big teen hang out. For those of you that didn't know, Marilon Mason, and Macy Grey are also from Canton, and either of them have any songs about their hometown roots. So I tip my hat at the next big thing that's coming out of my hometown.

    General Commentthis song is so true. I'm not from canton or anything, but I am from a small town in ohio, and the song is still pretty true. it's like my life in words.

    "Ohio has the flavor of a water chestnut
    Its not too crazy and its not the best but
    We're not setting forest fires just out of boredom
    Id rather see a movie if in fact i can afford one"
    (it's my new theme song)

    General CommentMovies 4 is the best thing ever. I'm always quoting this song because it's so true.
    "Cause we always say in Canton
    You cant enjoy (canton joy) yourself
    Well theres truth to that
    But may i add
    Its not that bad
    And lever less than that"
    Isn't the the truth!!!
