"Periodically Double Or Triple" as written by and Ira David Kaplan Georgia Mia Hubley....
Never read Proust
Seems a little too long
Never used the hammer
Without somehow using it wrong
Ive got time on my hands
That I cant wash off
Im crusing..
I cant shake this car
Walls are closing in
They often do
Im seeing double and triple
Does this ever happene to you?
I dont have to make it rain

But I never argue a proven review

Never wear a helmet
when Im riding a bike
Never recall a face
to me they all look alike
Ive got a hole in my brain
where what I meant to say lives
Im live in the past
And give back gifts and gifts
Walls are closing in
They often do
Im seeing double and triple
Does this ever happene to you?
I dont have to make it rain
But I never argue with a proven view

(solo)

Sometimes
In the future tense
I hope that you were safer
Put up an electric fence
Then only then
We can all get along
Get it down in writing
Judge Judy tell me if Im wrong
Walls are closing in
They often do
Im seeing double and triple
Does this ever happene to you?
I dont have to make it rain
But I never argue with a proven view

    General CommentFor a while, I thought he said "But I never argue a proven review," but after hearing it live and listening to the song a few more times, I'm wondering if he says "But I'd never argue with improvin' the view." It seems to make more sense with the rest of the lyrics in the chorus.

    General Commentsuch an amazing song... as to the lyrics your questioning reality soldier... I have no clue, it really sounds like it could be either. "Judge Judy tell me if I'm wrong" always makes me crack a grin.
