Oh, an incurable humanist you are.
(x4)

Let's go to the movies,
I will hum you a song about nothing at all
(x2)

Let's go to the movies, Let's go to the movies,
Nothing at all, Nothing at all, Nothing at all, Nothing at all.

Oh, An incurable humanist you are.
(x2)

Let's go to the movies,
I will hum you a song about nothing at all

Let's go to the movies,
I will sing you a song about nothing at all

Let's go to the movies, Let's go to the movies,
Nothing at all, Nothing at all, Nothing at all, Nothing at all.

Sit down class, open up your textbooks to page 42.

Porcupine-ology, antler-ology, car-ology, bus-ology, train-ology, plane-ology, mama-ology, papa-ology,you-ology, me-ology, love-ology, kiss-ology, stay-ology, please-ology.

Let's study class, let's study class. Sit down.

Love-ology, love-ology, I'm sorry-ology, forgive me-ology, love-ology, love-ology, I'm sorry-ology, forgive me-ology, love-ology, Love-ology.

Let's study class, let's study class.

Love-ology. Let's study class, sit down.

Love-ology, love-ology, I'm sorry-ology, forgive me-ology, love-ology, love-ology. I'm sorry-ology, forgive me-ology, love-ology, Love-ology.

Love-ology (x6)

Oh, an incurable humanist you are (x3)
Oh, forgive me, Oh, forgive me, Oh.
Forgive me, forgive me, forgive me-ology (x6)

    General Commenther songs are so random, i love it. i think it's kind of interesting how the scenario is supposedly a classroom... but 'loveology' is obviously something not taught in school. maybe things like loveology, kissology, stayology, pleaseology, forgive-me-ology are things everyone has to learn but are never explicitly taught.

    General CommentPorcupine-ology...I forgot what other songs that is mentioned in, but I think that is her innocent way of saying 'sex' :P

    General CommentI love how in

    "Porcupine-ology, antler-ology, car-ology, bus-ology, train-ology, plane-ology, mama-ology, papa-ology,you-ology, me-ology, love-ology, kiss-ology, stay-ology, please-ology."

    how "you-ology" sounds strangely like the word 'eulogy', which is the speech one says at a funeral, so she may be saying that although the relationship may be "dead", she wants forgiveness.

    General Commenti think Mongolev is on nearly the same track as i am on this song.

    (i just want to note that i know that regina rarely writes songs pertaining to herself, but for ease of writing i'm just using 'she')

    i think this song follows a similar theme to 'The Scientist' by Coldplay, where a person who thinks more in 'rational' and mathematical/scientific terms tries to explain and justify his irrational love emotions. she describes the person in question as an incurable humanist, and if we are to take the song sort of literally and she's teaching a science course, the narrator thinks in a 'scientific' way. the song is her way to desperately try and explain her feelings -- and love is such an irrational emotion -- in a way that makes sense to her (science).

    perhaps she was seen as cold by the person in question and that's why the relationship broke apart, and she is trying to prove that she indeed can understand love and emotions, albeit in her own way.

    General CommentLoveology.. a subject that is just as ambiguous, fickle, and incomprehensible sometimes as any other subject that changes according to new particulars. A subject that we all study and none have become masters of, which sincerely troubles everyone at some point in their lives... occupying every corner of one's mind to the state of being stationary, waiting.

    I'm sorryology, forgivemeology... the study of the human condition. What to let live, what to let die. How to make decisions that you don't want to make, but have to. Allowing yourself to become vulnerable and expose your deepest self in order to allow your partner to trust you again.

    So, so heartbreaking.

    General CommentI think that many of the above posters were right in that it is a musing on how the most important things in life are never taught. "Loveology", "Stayology", "Pleaseology", "I'm-Sorryology", "Forgive-Meology", "Kissology" - how to cope in a relationship, "Busology", "Planeology", "Trainology" - how to move through your life easily, "Mamaology", "Papaology" - how to be part of a family, "Meology", "Youology" - how to develop your own identity and/or what it MEANS to have an identity, and "Porcupineology" and "Antlerology" - discreet metaphors for sex. Using these 'euphemisms' for sex may also be a jibe at how the education system balks at the prospect of sex education.

    Alternatively, or maybe simultaneously, I can read it as someone trying to apologize to their partner, trying to beseech them to stay with them and forgive them, but the person is too scared or too insecure to let all these feelings out at once so they disguise them in the midst of a stream of miscellaneous babble.

    "Open up your textbooks", "Let's study class" are saying that the 'narrator' is learning about these things through experience.

    General Commenti like all the other responses, but something that stuck out to me was that she repeats loveology quite a bit. she makes it sound like it's hard to learn about it; like the sorries and forgive mes and love mes aren't something one can learn about in school, like love, you, me, and please. and i'm also thinking that the humanist reference is also referring to how people try to categorize and study everything, when a lot of things can only be experienced.

    Song MeaningI think, because she is talking about a humanist {which is pretty based on logistics}, she is talking about how he is unlovable (incurable), because he is so logical, so she does little, insignificant things (going to the movies;song about nothing at all) almost to pretend like they're in love, if that makes sense.

    As far as the "ologys" are concerned, I think she is trying to show the one she is trying to love or convince that they are in love, a logistic way of how it works, to appeal to his being a humanist. But she realizes she can't because he is unlovable/unable to be in love (incurable) and by her saying forgive me, its like her saying sorry I tried.
