I wear a ponytail like a waterfall
Loudspeaker or landslide
I have a room key and a Johnny
A good buzz, feeling all right
Pitch a tent, pop a top
Forget about what you ain't got
See the sites, sleep until night
Stamp your feet, turn out the lights

If you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

If you're high strung or stressed out
Down in the dumps, been turned out
Stabilized, motorized, insecure or fableized
Curious or furious, picked apart like Prometheus
Legalized, penalized, simplify, dry out your eyes

If you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

You've been Jezebeled, back from hell
Cooling off, feeling well
Tired of talking, talked out
Ticked off or toughed up
Too talled or backed up
Haven't made your mind up
Tbd'd or tb'd
Tired of falling to your knees

If you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

And if you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

    General CommentThis song is about being over exposed, and learning to let it go, in different ways.

    General CommentIt's interesting how a few lyric inconsistencies change the meaning of this song, heh.

    "He'll buy, bottle the suns for you and everyone." turned out to be incorrect, as was "DVDed or TVed." I corrected them from Jenny's site with the official lyrics.

    General CommentThat aside, I think this song is actually about someone who's let go of their religion.

    This person "tired of falling to their knees" to pray, and tired of talking about it. Now they've let loose and are living a carefree life, hence the narrator (or Jenny) tells them to go see Fernando, "he'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone."

    General Commenti would have thought it was you're classic "come to the disco" kinda song. You know, get all dressed up, forget about your problems and go out sorta thing. chain up the sun= disco ball? maybe!

    My InterpretationI like to think of Fernando in this song as a personification the San Fernando Valley.

    General CommentFernando was the name of the teddy bear on the "Golden Girls" episode she was on as a kid. Not saying that's related, but it's interesting anyway.
