Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about

True he likes the Breeders
He thinks Green Day's pretty swell
But what about the Bartlebees and Neutral Milk Hotel?
It's okay for a sunny day but that Sting album won't do
So when I play you Allen Clapp, you'll know baby I love you!

Hey hey

Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about

Sure he buys you records
If you like them by U2
But if you want the Pastels
Baby, here's what you should do
Get on your bike and take a hike
and meet me at our spot
Just you and me and Halo Benders
Hey that's pretty hot

And we'll sing ...

Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about

Break it down, go!

Here's a way to spend our day
with Lois and the Crabs
We'll have some fun and visit Cub
And maybe we'll hold hands
We can keep the Lemonheads
And Weezer he gave you
Cause you and me got Heavenly and Nothing Painted Blue

Hey hey

Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
3-2-1
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Hey hey
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about

One more time

Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Hey hey
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about
Hey hey
Pop songs your new boyfriend's too stupid to know about

Go!

    General Comment:Oh, this is fantastic, in the snobbiest, most obnoxious indie-pop way. It's about some guy and his friend...who's a girl...and her new boyfriend, who obviously hasn't been blessed with the same musical knowledge.

    Love the Neutral Milk Hotel rhyme, in other news, as well as the Pastels reference.

    General Comment:Love this song...
    And "a sunny day" must refer to the band Another Sunny Day.

    General Comment:oh and "a sunny day" does refer to the band Another Sunny Day, because that's a pretty well known band from Sarah Records.

    My Interpretation:We can keep the Lemonheads
    And Weezer he gave you

    Well, he can keep the Lemonheads
    And Weezer he gave you
