Patient:
For so long I trailed you
Now here I am, but I can't stand
With these jellybones

Checked myself into emergency, urgently
Drove up in my bone Camaro, thinking only about you
The doctor walked her crew of surgeons to the table where I lay
I came to, and my knee-caps were off
They were soft, I had jellybones

Doctor:
I woke him up and broke the news
After everything was sewn
I said: "Son, you've got a full-blown case
Of what is known as jellybones"

Jelly [x9]
Jellybones

But this is love so we'll survive

    General Commentwhat's so bad about being gay? you've outright offended me, miss.

    yes, alden penner is a confirmed homosexual. the rest of them? well, i guess that's their business.

    this is a great song. it's probably my favorite of theirs.

    General Commenti think this song is about being in love.. "jellybones" = weak in the knees. he even says when he came to his knee-caps were off.

    General CommentA masterpiece of a song which they somehow managed to fit into 2 minutes and some odd seconds.
