"The Key of C" as written by and Eric Elbogen....
i'll only light cause i'm your match
admit it, i took out your trash
there are stars in your eyes
and they're shooting

we never hung things on the wall
we played the pixies and the fall
there's a treasure in your heart
just like a pirate's booty

but believe me
there's a better
arnold palmer to play your course
and a better bob villa
to build your windows
and your doors
we could never decide
what to call the cat
so we called her cat
so it's time to go
it's time to go away
time to go
it's time to go
it's time to go away

you keep the records
and the pogos
don't weep
you'll have your pick of beaus
well they read it in the papers
so they're already outside
and we'll be bruised up in the morning
they'll track us jokes
that are real corny
but we'll bounce back
just like the moon bounce
in our backyard

and believe me
there's a better frankenstein
for you to bride
and a better president
to look you in the eyes and lie
we could never decide
what to call the cat
so we called her cat
and it's time to go
it's time to go away
it's time to go
it's time to go away

    General Commentaww i can't believe no one has commented on this song yet. i really like it. and the line, "we could never decide what to call the cat so we called her cat" always makes me smile.

    General Commenti really like:
    but believe me
    there's a better
    arnold palmer to play your course
    and a better bob villa
    to build your windows
    and your doors

    it makes me think, even though its a really weird way to say it, this guy really cares about whoever hes talking to, and he wants him/her to be happy cause they could have it so much better.....

    General Commentwow i love this song. it really means alot to me. it reminds me a ton of a girl i dated and really cared about who is now dating my best friend. i consider him to be the better arnold palmer and bob villa and all that. because he really is a better guy than me. and she deserves better.

    General Commenti absolutly love the part in the song::
    but we'll bounce back
    just like the moon bounce
    in our backyard:
    it just reminds me of those relationships you admire where no one wants them to be together but they don't care at all and they just stick with eachother -or maybe- even after they are done they always come back to eachother.
