i'm coming in.
try to stop me.
push furniture in front of the door.
it only gives me something to push against.
in the full heat of the summer's day,
you're telling me to go away.
but you owe me eight-thousand dollars and i can use it

i'm only getting stronger.
you may have noticed.
but a head full of memories propels me ever further
and in the living room i don't see where you are,
but the back door's locked, so you can't have gone far
and eight-thousand dollars is a whole lot of money
and i could use it.

could be that it's my imagination, but i think i hear you now.
so come out come out, wherever you are.
olly-olly-olly-olly-olly-olly oxen free see i'm
perfectly aware of where our love stands,
but the plain fact is that you owe me eight grand
if it helps to jog your memeory,
i lent it to you on tuesday, when we were drinking.
ha! ha-ha-ha-uh-uh-ha! uh-ha!

    General CommentThe way the hostility of the lyrics contrasts with the melody is staggering.

    General CommentI find this song refreshing in that it's not as seething and serious as some of the other alpha couple songs; it's got some humor in it. The subplot that she owes $8,000, the "olly-olly-olly oxen free", etc. His laughing at the end always cracks me up haha.

    My OpinionI consider Alpha Omega to be the actual end of the the Alpha Couple since it's about the Alpha female leaving, but this feels like an epilogue or something. They're no longer a couple, and the Alpha male tracks down his former wife and demands this $8000. Whether this $8000 exists or not can be questioned, since the narrator doesn't seem particularly stable in this song.
