The sidewalk is rushing at my head again
I'm lying on the street in the rain and wind
From doing foward rolls down Avenue A
With my guitar on my back
don't let it end this way

Somehow I dialed my cell
I didn't know I could get service in Hell
How quickly can you get here?
Don't know where I am dear
Finally the world actually seems to be revolving around me

Shooby Dooby Doo-op
I over did it at the soda shop
Thanks for being my girl
at the I don't know when to stop sock hop

You held my head over the edge of the bed
I remember it now
but at the time I thought I was dead
You put a pan there
and held back my hair
How can I repay you for saving me
and my hardwood floor?

Shooby Dooby Doo-op
I over did it at the soda shop
Thanks for being my girl
at the I don't know when to stop sock hop

And when the world stops spinning 'round
I pick the pan off of the ground
I read my upheaves
Much like tea leaves
They said its over so get sober or you'll die
again

Shooby Dooby Doo-op
I over did it at the soda shop
Thanks for being my girl
at the I don't know when to stop sock hop

    General CommentI think it's supposed to be "From doing forward rolls down Avenue A" and
    "Somehow I dialed my CELL
    I didn’t know I could get service in hell
    How quickly can you get here
    Don’t know where I am DEAR
    Finally the world ACTUALLY seems to be revolving around me"

    What does he mean by Soda Shop?

    General Commentdefinitely the cutest song about alcoholism i've ever heard! the "doo-wop, soda shop, sock-hop" 50s metaphor is kind of awesome.

    and seriously, watch shortbus.

    General CommentHe is gay. The song never says the "dear" is a romantic dear or a good friend dear.

    Besides, people often write songs with the pronouns all wrong just because it makes for a better story. Not everything has to be straight from a person's own life (no pun intended).

    General CommentActually, I think the song is about having to look after yourself
    after getting drunk-- the 'somehow I dialed my cell' seems to suggest it...
    but of course, it could also mean that he calls his own cell (which is
    at home and the friend picks it up).
