I bought a house with you
We settled down with cats
There wasn't much to do
So we just sat and watched the TV
And smoked weed

We drove a biocar
'Cos we all love the earth
It didn't get us far
And always sounded like a walrus
With ulcers

L-A-L-A

We surfed at Malibu
So we could see the stars
And when the sun fell off
We'd drive back slowly
to Topanga

L-A-L-A

Then once that wasn't enough
We gave up on our jobs
And bought back all our time
To spend it walking in the forest

L-A-L-A

HELP! ME!
HELP! ME!

L-A-L-A

I bought a house with you
We settled down with cats!
There wasn't much to do
So we just sat and watched the TV

    General CommentThis is the first song that really grabbed my on Sisterworld; but I love all of it now. This song is about the boredom in their lives. Basically just a travelogue, listing what they're doing in LA, or "Hell A"?

    General Commentthe irony of the title "the overachievers" when most of the activities in the song accomplished very little in reality
