"Let's Get Out of This Country" as written by and Tracyanne Campbell....
Let's get out of this country
I'll admit I am bored with me
I drowned my sorrows and slept around
When not in body at least in mind
We'll find a cathedral city
You can convince me I am pretty

We'll pick berries and recline
Let's hit the road dear friend of mine
Wave goodbye to our thankless jobs
We'll drive for miles maybe never turn off
We'll find a cathedral city you can be handsome I'll be pretty

What does this city have to offer me?
Everyone else thinks it's the bee's knees
What does this city have to offer me?
I just can't see
I just can't see

Let's get out of this country
I have been so unhappy
Smell the Jasmine my head was turned
I feel like getting confessional
We'll find a cathedral city you can convince me I am pretty

What does this city have to offer me?
Everyone else thinks it's the bee's knees
What does this city have to offer me?
I just can't see
I just can't see

    General CommentBefore this, all I had really heard was "books Written for Girls" and "Eighties Fan"...I liked them, but I'd have to say that this is THE song that made me a fan.

    General Commentthis is the best, sweetest, feeling sorry for yourself song

    i live in new york city and used to think it was the greatest "the bees knees" (as does about everyone in the world i think), but as baggage and life start to add up around the place you live it's value starts to deteriorate.

    this song reminds me of my best friend and i's constant philosophizing and dreaming about leaving together forever...

    General CommentYeah, this is the song that made me fan of them too. It's a pretty catchy tune with nice lyrics (specially for a sad and feeling-sorry-of-yourself day like maud said up there ;P) i'm goin' to two gigs of 'em in the next to days and i've never seen them live before so I hope they're are gonna amaze me live like they did with the studio album.

    By the way, as you'll probably know Camera Obscura has a very similar sound to Belle And Sebastian (A band which I actually like even more than this one) but the other day I knew one fact that surprised me and that explains the influence that B&S had over Camera Obscura: Tracyane's elder sister (Isobel Campbell) was a former member of that band.

    For the guys who don't know B&S yet, I suggest you to listen to all of their LP's, I'm sure you'll love then even more than Camera!
