"Cheer Me Up Thank You" as written by and Sally Mary Seltmann....
so it goes
the ordinary people, they do not know
who we are or what we're doing here
they want you to pick up the phone
and hum the dial tone
you see, we should start from the top
and look at what we've done

wild flowers growing in the park
summertime, and it melts into dark
dancing together at night until two
cheering me up, and i'm thanking you

so it goes
the ordinary people, they do not know
who we are or what we're doing here
they want you to pick up the phone
and hum the dial tone
you see, we should start from the top
and look at what we've done

wild flowers growing in the park
summertime, and it melts into dark
dancing together at night until two
cheering me up, and i'm thanking you

you're cheering me up
and i'm thanking you
guess what, you're cheering me up
and i'm thanking you

    General CommentI can't believe that no one has commented on this song, it is my favorite New Buffalo song. I think that it is musically and lyrically perfect. Her voice is so beautiful, light, and fits wonderfully with the lyrics.

    The song is obviously about someone who is always able to lift her up. She recalls the wildflowers in the park and the summer that they spent together. This person is able to cheer her up and this song is a song of thanks for making her life brighter.

    General Commenti can't believe people haven't commented on this, either! it's such a lovely song... i can listen to it over and over.

    i'm reminded of my friends this summer... i went through a horrible year, and they cheered me up as summer came. we acted crazy and ignored calls and danced until 2 am. i love them...

    General CommentNew Buffalo is surprisingly actually just one chick by herself, not a band. She has another girl who helps her out with instruments and what not. I saw her live as the support act for Air recently (I know, weird! Air and New Buffalo) and she was AMAZING!

    My OpinionThis song is really good. I like it when she says "summertime, and it melts into dark
    dancing together at night until two cheering me up, and i'm thanking you". These lyrics are awesome.
    Great song
