I bet you thought that I forgot about our deal,
But I am a man of my words, though they be strange and absurd
I'm just trying to keep it real.
And I know I lost the bet, but I haven't lost you yet
And if drinking lemonade for the rest of our days would save you,
You know I would do it.

Remember Regina and Sara and cereal bowls
and wearing our hats even when it's not cold.
I'll never relate to your city peeps
'cause I do most of my thuggin' on suburban streets.
I get terrified but I'm fine when I'm with you.

You should know that I love it when you sing,
But I'd love it even more if you'd stop hitting things.
Regardless, I'd be heartless without you.

Well I haven't yelled at someone in a pretty long time,
And the last time that I did I regretted it
I can't wait 'til senior year when I will live in constant fear
'Cause you'll act like a zombie and slobber all on me
You know that I hate it but I wouldn't trade it for any asshole you don't like.

Yeah you're stuck with me for the rest of our afterlives.

    General CommentThis song is about a bet that Julia made with one of her friends that if he stopped smoking for a week, she would drink only lemonade for a week and the loser had to write a song about the winner.

    I bet you thought that I forgot about our deal,
    But I am a man of my words, though they be strange and absurd
    (Julia has said this song took her an year to write. She's saying, you've probably forgotten about the bet, but I'm a man of my words and I'm going through with it.)

    I'm just trying to keep it real.
    And I know I lost the bet, but I haven't lost you yet
    And if drinking lemonade for the rest of our days would save you,
    You know I would do it.
    (The bet was about getting her friend to stop smoking for a week, so she had to drink lemonade for a week. She's saying that she would drink lemonade for the rest of her life if it would get her friend to stop smoking and save his life)
