"supermarket one" as written by and Nick Krgovich....
i'm putting on acts.
(putting on acts)
i'm looking to score.
(looking to score)
you be the lady
(you be the lady)
and i'll be the dark horse.
(beauty of georgey horse)
well i fell apart
(doowop doowop ooh)
in the grocery store.
(doowop doowop ooh)
got a sideways glance
(doowop doowop ooh)
from the deli boy.
(doowop doowop ooh)

it must've been the light,
baker girl,
that made you look alright;
while i look like hell.
(whoo!)

checkout line.
the key-lime pie

and walking home alone felt like riding off into the night.
walking home alone felt like riding off into the night.

    General Commenti think this song is about one-night stands with random people; 'the deli boy', 'baker girl'. after each one, you inevitably go home alone and it feels like 'riding off into the night'. as if you're going nowhere, really, since the only satisfaction in one-night stands happens during them, not afterwards.
    i love the last two lines.

    General Commenti tend to think it's more about this person going to the grocery store looking to score with the baker girl.

    he's putting on his best act but he's just losing it every time when he sees her. and he ends up looking like hell, walking home alone with one of her precious key-lime pies. as that's the best he could do.

    perhaps, though. he does manage to "score" as the last two lines feel right triumphant.

    i believe the deli boy is a love interest of the baker girl, thus the "sideways glance"
