Look at you you're young
havin' so much fun
gonna be a star
blah blah blah
and click there goes the phone
I don't wanna know
what my
horoscope's predicting

just pour me a drink
cuz I need a kick
I don't wanna think
I just wanna sip

(chorus)
david don't you hear me at all
david won't you give me a call
waitin' here not makin' a sound
david come around

mister bushie says
I'm your president
I have lots to say
hey hey hey
and click goes the remote
there you have my vote
catchin' the next boat out of here

just pour me a drink
cuz I need a lie
I don't wanna think
I just wanna die

(chorus)
david don't you hear me at all
david don't you hear through the wall
waitin' here not makin' a sound
david come around

(bridge)
chaos pervades the world outside
days offer spades of hurled outcries
gone is the fair and five and dime
but he is there
he's so fine

listen to her play
has somethin' to say
even has a rap
clap clap clap
but click there goes the lid
sorry 'bout the fib
I ain't got a grip on nothin'

just pour me a drink
right outta the can
I don't wanna think
I just want my man

(chorus)
david don't you hear me at all
david dear I'm just down the hall
waitin' here not makin' a sound
david come around

    General CommentDavid is David Eisenbach, a teacher at Manhattan School of Music (or whatever it's called, heh). At the beginning of the song, she sings "hcabnesie", his surname backwards. :D

    General CommentI wonder if there aren't very many entries, because her lyrics are pretty straight forward. This was the first song I heard from Nellie McKay.

    Too bad Mister Bushie is still president...

    General CommentI like the catchy melody and the lyrics of this song.

    "just pour me a drink
    cuz I need a kick
    I don't wanna think
    I just wanna sip"

    I can relate!

    General CommentOh I forgot to say what this song is about. I read somewhere that she said this song was about how she "song stalked" this guy that lived in her apartment building named David. This sounds right when matched with the lyrics (david don't you hear through the wall) and becomes more apparent with the line "david dear I'm just down the hall." The fact that she had a crush on someone in her building but never talking somehow makes this song sweet in a way. I love Nellie!!!

    General CommentSounds like a semi-depressed wait for David-down-the-hall to ring her, possibly after being stood up by him.

    I used to be completely obsessed with this song when I was about 12. It brings tears to your eyes...
