"Quality" as written by and Steven/robertson Page....
Just show me the venue
When I'm the menu
It's personalized
The life of the party
I'm like Billy Barty
But regular-sized
I guess I should explain
Your guests will go insane
For me

'Cause I'm serving up quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, biology
Enhanced with high technology

Over in England
Everything bent
But I'm satisfied
I hung with the stars there
You know they drive cars there
On the other side
They barely noticed me
You said you'd go with me
Always

'Cause I'm serving up quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, biology
Inspired some Greek mythology

It's all true (cross my heart and hope to die)
I swear to you (stick a needle in your eye)
And if you've been misled
May some lightning strike me dead

Back Japan, they
Did not understand, they
Sent me back here
But look at them now, they're
Rubbing my cow, there
And feeding it beer
I may go back someday
They'll have a huge buffet
For me

'Cause I'm serving up quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, mirology
Is studied in theology

It's quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, biology
Enhanced with high technology

    General CommentI love this song , even the first time I heard it, can't stop singing along.

    aas what taylorshaylor said, it's a shame, I'm still trying to figure out what the song means.

    What I really like about this band is they put up so much images on my mind with their song to which I can't explain what those mean. lol.

    General CommentEd himself has said it is a mostly nonsense song. The coherent parts are about a singer who believes his music is good but is not recognized in England or Japan.

    General CommentI love this song. I liked it the firs time I heard it all the way through. Not sure what it's about wither. Maybe an anthem "Ode To the Fast Food Insudtry"...

    General CommentI think the song is about a guy explaining that he's a good person, even if he's not understood everywhere he goes. He may not always be correct, but he is confident in himself and he has the passion to go after what he wants.

    Eh, that's just my take.

    General CommentI think this song is about some unspecified upper class Americans who think that they are a real big deal just because they have a view that America is the greatest country and everyone else is a step below. I think the person is also kind of in love with everything, having the "it's all good" attitude. This is supported by my theory that the part that says "My quality biology enhanced with high technology" is about male enhancement drugs. Another thing that supports my thought that the person has a skewed viewpoint of America in the big picture is when he says "my...inspired some Greek mythology" -- obviously impossible when Greek mythology existed long before America (and our protagonist) did. Also, there's an error in the posted lyrics; in the end, it should say, "my quality neurology is studied in theology"-- which is another thing evidincing the person's ego, because this basically is saying, "I have the mind of a god".

    General CommentIt's a song about a performer who thinks highly of himself, but probably isn't that good. The first verse is about him trying to convince people to hire him. (BTW, Billy Barty was a little person who was a character actor.) Second and third verses are about him traveling abroad, but not really being wanted in either place.
