"Black Jettas" as written by Joey Waronker, Oliver Goldstein, Justin Meldal-johnsen, Tim Anderson and Alex Ebert....
Yea. Tim, me and Olli have problems. Justin has none.

Ex-girlfriends in black Jettas
Everywhere I go, there it is
When I take a stroll, there she is
When I'm out the door, what I'm looking for
Same looking car that I saw 12 seconds ago

They're so popular you can't get away
Girls drive 'em in Encino
And they drive 'em in LA
Some are different, some are older
And their bodystyle is changed
But my heart will still jump
Because to me, they look the same

Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas

I get so scared
She's so filled with hate
Can't pay attention to my new girl
[Pssh... whatever!]
Is that her license plate?
[Oh my god, he'll try and kiss you]

They're so popular you can't get away
Girls drive 'em in Encino
And they drive 'em in LA
Some are different, some are older
And their bodystyle is changed
But my heart will still jump
Because to me, they look the same

Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas

Is that her license plate? [Oh shit!]
Is that her? Check the rims. [They're coming after me.]
About to crash, I can't relax [SCREEEECH.]
Is that her? I can't tell! [Turn here! What the fuck is that?]
They all look the same. [What the fuck is that?]
They're all playing the game in black Jettas
Windows tinted, right side dented [Oh shit, heh-heh]
Last night one tried to kill me, I'm sure
I think it was her
Black Jettas on the attack
She was wearing a big straw hat
Or was it a different haircut?
Or did she get fat?
I cannot tell, they look the same
Black Jettas are driving me insane

Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas
Ex-girlfriends, black Jettas

    General CommentApparently one of the band members (Alex, I think) dated a girl who had a black Jetta, after the nasty break-up, she and her friends (who also had them) would drive by the apartment and just honk viciously to them, and it made Alex paranoid everytime he saw one.

    General CommentI love this song.

    I find it entertaining that the part where they say "They're so popular you can't get away" sounds like "They're so Bob Villa, you can't get away." Kind puts a little bit more humor in the song ;-)

    General Commentthis song surprised me too, but i almost missed it because you have to listen to the last track for a while until the song actually gets interesting (i almost just turned it off at the last one). but anyway, what a freakin cool song. i dont know why. the musics so catchy
