at the ball
'till ten
come on i'm just like them
they can't bear to wait
all they wear is bait
but i don't change my clothes
my underwear is six days old
my hair is ratted in a lunch-lady net
but i can catch one anyway
i bet

going out to parties never worked for me
i would rather sit at home and scheme
moller picked up oma with a symphony
there must be a boy out there for me

rhyme and rhythm
go out and get him
i am relying
on you to find him
that is your purpose
don't know what mine is

he will be strange and dark
he'll be hilarious and wrapped up in his work
he will have seen the world
he'll have an endless list of wicked tales to tell
and he will think that i'm too dirty
he will not want to like me
he'll say a friend brought me to see the show
he'll say i think you're just the girl i'd like to get to know
i'd like to get to get to know
i'd like to like to know
i

getting drunk at parties never worked for me
i would rather sit and home and scheme
how to pitch our music to the industry
that will increase my chances exponentially

rhyme and rhythm
go out and get him
i am relying
on you to find him
that is your purpose
don't know what mine is
rhyme and rhythm
go out and get him
i am relying
on you to find him
that is your purpose
not fame and fortune
not fame and fortune
not fame and fortune
not fame and fortune

    General Comment"maller picked up oma" should be "Mahler picked up Alma with a symphony". Gustav Mahler was a classical composer, who wrote the "Mahler" symphony.

    Mahler forbade Alma from composing after they married, but later changed his mind.

    This could be a song about "traditional women" vs. getting a career. And of course, the music industry.

    The "he" in the verse that comes after the first chorus could be a reference to Matchbook, her college boyfriend (if only in the last part "a friend brought me to see the show")

    General CommentI think it's about a girl using her music as a vehicle for finding the right guy, i.e. love.
