"Anti-Summersong" as written by and Colin Meloy....
Here now, long gone
Three freaks and a bed are gone
Went to the river but the river got dry
And all the good people were hanging around

Too little, too late
Everybody gotta medicate
Through the winter when the winter comes down
And all the city comes to hanging ground

I'm not going on and
Just to sing another summer song
So long, farewell
Don't everybody fall all over themselves

I'm not going on
Just to sing another summer song
So long, farewell
Don't everybody fall all over themselves

I'm not going on
Just to sing another singalong suicide song
So long, farewell
Don't everybody fall all over themselves
So, don't everybody fall all over themselves
Don't everybody fall all over themselves

    General CommentI believe it's "fall all over themselves."

    My InterpretationI think this is a tongue in cheek Decemberists self-satire. The title refers to previous Decemberists track "Summersong," which tells the story of a shipwreck where the crew drowns. Colin Meloy humorously refers to his songs like this with morbid lyrics as "singalong suicide" songs. But then the singer says because he's tired of writing these morbid songs, he is going to kill himself, ironically making this another singalong suicide song.

    My InterpretationI think he's singing "Three freaks in a Vanagon".
    You know, hippies in a VW microbus. They were branded Vanagons from '80 to '91.
