Hey you know my friend Lisa
She's down from LA
We've been places like this
They're always the same
We'll loosen the rope just enough to Make you pay-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya

Say my memory is hazy
We're moving away
To rent a display home
Avoid all the grey
Two bees in a swarm
The honey's stuck us by the hair-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya

Hold music, hold music
Give it to me baby don't you dare lose it, dare lose it
Give it to me baby don't you dare lose it, dare lose it

When we're sleeping in daily
There's ice on the road
I bought us a dragon
To lighten the load
He's keeping us warm
The blood keep flowing to your head-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya
Hey I've never been stately
I'm legless at sea
My spirit has felt you since 1903
I'm trying to be normal
But there's evil in my head-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya

Hold music, hold music
Give it to me baby don't you dare lose it, dare lose it
Give it to me baby don't you dare lose it, dare lose it

You're so dangerous
Everybody's gonna hide out back
It doesn't matter that you're serious
Move along sad face your cover's blown
C'mon there you are
And we're outta space and you're out of space
I said change the beat fast
Or your enemies will see you naked

Hold music hold music hold
Hold music hold music hold
Hold music hold music hold

When we were out drinking
I found you a home
Four million in prizes
You left me alone
When we were forlorn
I found some poison in your bed-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya
Though you may mistake me
I'll never be free
I'm stuck in the crossfire
Between you and he
Tattoos on his arms
He got a needle for a head-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-hey-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya

Hold music, hold music
Give it to me baby don't you dare lose it, dare lose it
Give it to me baby don't you dare lose it, dare lose it

Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me

Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me
Give it to me baby give it to me

    General Commentit sounds to me more like

    "he's got a needle for the hay-ya-ya-hay-ya-ya-hay-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya"

    perhaps he's perceivably cooler, because he knows more about elliott smith?

    kind of a long shot.

    General CommentEh, I always thought this song was about sex and drugs. And music, obviously. Maybe I was wrong. It's just with the whole mention of needles, drinking, and 'dragons', it seems to be at least hinting at drugs. And the whole "give it to me baby, don't you dare lose it" screams sex to me. The 'don't you dare loose it' could be referring to the fact that he's having trouble staying aroused cause he's been drinking and smoking and shit. But then again, I could be waaayyy off.
