Do you think there's somebody out there
Someone else who's better than the one you've got?
Well there's not, there's not

When I talk you keep looking away from me
Because you probably think that I'm high on pot
But I'm not, I'm not

Look me over I'm the Cap'm
You say it's such a joke
But I don't see you laughing

People seem to think you can't be called the Cap'm
Unless you drive a boat
Well, I don't
I don't

Look me over I'm the Cap'm
Go ahead and mess with me
You'll find out what will happ'm

Sit beside me at the helm
Yeah, this is what I call the helm
And this button here is the fast-forward button

Did you say what I think you just said
My hat looks good on me?
I agree, I agree

Look me over I'm the Cap'm
You act like it's a joke, but I don't see you laughing

People seem to think you can't be called the Cap'm
Unless you drive a boat
Well, I don't
I don't

I don't
I don't
I don't

    General CommentIt's about a guy imagining he is a "cap'm" while watching TV. The "helm" is his couch.

    He is very pathetic, and he realizes this around the line "This button here is the fast-forward button."

    Whoever is talking to him distracts him from being depressed by complimenting his hat.

    General CommentOkay..this description is kinda sloppy but yeh its my interpretation.


    This song makes me think of a guy who is in a relationship with one of those girls that has an uptight way of thinking that a man is supposed to be successful and the main source of income etc. etc. Because of the mainstream way of thinking she acts like he is not good enough for her. Despite this, he knows that she will grow out of it and learn to appreciate the small things in life.

    Basically, he is Eccentric and she is realistic. He kind of needs to grow up but she kind of needs to lighten up and enjoy life for what it is.



    "When I talk you keep looking away from me
    Because you probably think that I'm high on pot
    But I'm not, I'm not"

    He's obviously a goofy, free-spirited guy who is just trying to be happy, but she thinks he's immature.

    "Look me over I'm the Cap'm
    You say it's such a joke
    But I don't see you laughing"

    By saying he's the Cap'm, he's referring that he is in control of his life and their relationship, but in a way that fits him. It's a way of saying he is in control but he isn't a control freak, like most men.

    "People seem to think you can't be called the Cap'm
    Unless you drive a boat
    Well, I don't
    I don't"

    He's basically not like other people. He isn't bound by other's beliefs. He can do anything he puts his mind to.

    "Sit beside me at the helm
    Yeah, this is what I call the helm
    And this button here is the fast-forward button"

    He's telling his girlfriend to sit with him and watch tv with him, but he realizes that he's in a little over his head...and realizes he is a loser with the "fast forward button" part.


    "Did you say what I think you just said
    My hat looks good on me?
    I agree, I agree"

    The girl sees that he now feels like a loser (because he can't please her just by being himself and because he's not able to give her grand material goods). She sort of comes out of her angry mood to make him feel better. She realizes he is just trying his best to make life good.

    Thus, he is enthralled that she still thinks he is cool and goes back to his yippy-skippy attitude.



    Then at the end he yells "i dont" multiple times to emphasize that he will never change!



    love this song.
