"Customer" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Tape's rolling...O.K.

(I'm in love with the girl who works at the store
where I'm nothing but a...)
Customer
I'm a customer
I'm a customer
I'm a customer

How about cigarettes?
I'll take sugarless
You sell waterbeds?
I'm a customer
I'm a customer
I'm a customer

Yeah, can I get change?
Where're the twinkies?
What's on sale?
I'm a customer
I'm a customer
I'm a customer
I love you

    General CommentYESSSSSSS. The meaning's pretty straightforward, I think, but still, when I was in middle school I'd walk by a boy I liked on purpose or make up excuses to talk to him, kind of like this. Actually, one time I DID tell him I loved him, just like in the song. Ah, embarrassing. But very relatable!

    General Commentoh, me and my modern ears. it first in the beginning it sounded like he was saying something like "okay, i'm in love with a girl that works at starbucks...". I mean, starbucks opened in the 1970's, but i'm not sure how common they were in '81. Also the items he lists can't be bought at starbucks anyway. shot down my own theory. This record in general is really great. There's a gap in my Replacements collection between stink and tim. I'm sure someday i'll get the music that goes in between there.
