When you gonna do some damage,
Little Brother?
Now that half your life is over
If you're lucky
Looking at the trends of men down
Through your family

Boom, there go the treetops
Once more 'round the sundial
Just in case you were not listening
I'm for damage
Sweet damage
Oh, damage
Sweet damage
Oh, damage

Come on, tell us what we've won
Little Brother's doing well
With his cave painting, selling
To the bandits and their brides
Little Brother, you're inside
"You're a natural," we joke,
"In the early ABCs"
Little Brother couldn't see
Past his eyes once again
He thought you were in love
He's just glad to be free
To have come so highly
Recommended

Oh oh oh oh

And you looked
Oh, like you were saying something
And you looked
Like you were saying something

With his slight victory
Little Brother took the keys
To the city which he found
On the floor of his van
Little Brother, cap in hand,
Found the turn of events
Unexpected

Oh oh oh oh

And you looked
Oh, like you were saying something
And you looked
Like you were saying something

Oh oh oh oh

Introductions have been made
Little Brother, I'm convinced,
Yet again blew her off
She thought she'd stick it out
Little Brother wished her well
The best wishes on both ends
Extended

Oh oh oh oh

And you looked
Oh, like you were saying something
And you looked
Like you were saying something

Oh oh oh oh

Ma ma ma ma

We end up together

    General CommentSays Carl Newman: "It's a song about all of the times in the past that I had met my wife, or been in the same room as my wife, and had been completely unaware that, well, we end up together."

    General CommentThat line in the second verse should be "Little Brother, cap in hand".

    General CommentMoreover, it's about taking the bad with the good in knowing that someone is family, or as good as, and loving how people affect you.
