"White Limo" as written by David Eric Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear....
I'll take you out of the wishin' well
I thinkin' I have a plan
Go with your bad self
Why did you cheat yourself?
You think you're losing
China's not accusing
You never gonna take a hit on the head
Now if you don't care
Take a ride somewhere

Hey you got something
You gotta try and buy our soul
Hey you got something
It goes round and round again
Go, go, you should've never waste your lung
Go, go, and the ride was shared
Go limo, go limo

I got you stuck in the habit trail
You've grown to lovin' this shit
Way out on a back shelf
Yeah you don't know what you've done
Look what you're doin'
Now mama says it's ruined
You've got a mollusk in the palm of your hand
So it's a bad smell
Your eyes wanna win

Hey you got something
You wanna try and buy our soul
Hey you got something
It goes round and round and round again
Go, go, you're never having to waste your lung
Go, go, and the ride was shared
Go, go, whatever happened to Day-Glo Jones?
Go, go, and the ride was shared
Go limo, go limo

    General CommentThese are the "official" lyrics that were in the lyric booklet on the Japanese release…..

    I'm drinking out of the wishing well
    I break a night on the bend
    get off with your bad self
    round up the seed and stem
    you think you're losing the jaundice I've been using
    You never gonna take a hit on the head
    Right on if it don't fit
    Then you're eyes turn red

    Hey ain't that something
    You gonna try and buy a sin
    Hey ain't that something
    It's going round and round again

    Go go
    You shouldn't have to wait so long
    Go go
    And the right one said

    Go limo
    Go limo

    I got you stuck on a habitrail
    You crawled along and you said
    Way down on the back shelf
    You never meant what you bled
    Look what you're doing the marmoset is ruined
    You had the mollusk in the palm of your hand
    So long it's a mad swell
    Jorma for the win

    Hey ain't that something
    You gonna try and buy a sin
    Hey ain't that something
    It's going round and round again

    Go go
    You shouldn't have to wait so long
    Go go
    And the right one said
    Go go
    Whatever happened to day glow thongs
    Go go
    And the right one said

    Go limo Go limo Yeah All right

    My OpinionI love that Dave put the word "Habitrail" in a song.

    General Commenti'm thinking it's about a rock start who parties hard with a fellow rock star but then sees his fellow star falling into the drug life style a bit to hard so he's going to move on by himself and keep on partying.
    regardless, this is my favorite track off of wasting light, and i'm so effin stoked to see them live again.

    dave grohl is the closest thing we have to a true "rock god" these days....except maybe josh homme, but they are the them crooked vultures together so it's all good.

    General Comment@hughtrblc

    Yeah, i'll be honest it's hard to make the lyrics out as Grohl's screaming in this one. I'm pretty sure the Chorus is right, but the verses sound a bit... eh.

    General Commentyeah some of the lyrics seem a little off...
    i love this song though, and the video clip is hilarious. so good
    but i found that bits of this song reminded me of the stuff from the first album...especially the song Weenie Beenie.
    :D

    General CommentJorma is a nickname in Finland. Jorma for the win? What? Jorma is also a name for penis here

    This is an amazing song though. I think the lyrics don't matter at all, they just had to put some cool nonsense in there hahah..

    I really don't know why but the lyrics make me think of rough sex...damn, sorry people

    General Commenti think its got something to do with rockstar lifestyle, similar to stacked actors. 'the ride was shared' makes me think hes talking about all the band went through the pains of fame with him. other parts could be a hate letter to business types and drug dealers, and just people in general that kiss your ass cos your famous. but i could be way off.
