"Extra Ordinary" as written by and Kevin Griffin....
I got a little bit of hope,
Like a soap on a rope
Sweeter than sour
Gettin' thinner by the hour
Fallin' fast and I'm runnin' out of gas
Noggin' on your sister smart as Bobby Fisher
Still I couldn't get arrested
Though I got more hooks
Than Madonna got looks
Just like that AC/DC song,
"C'mon baby, shake me all night long"

All I want to do
Is get up early in the morning
(oh I love you baby)
And all I gotta say to you
Is your love's extra ordinary
You're extra ordinary baby

Somebody pushed me through the door
I've been sleepin' on the floor
Thirty one flavors listen to
The neighbors through the wall
And a deputant ball
Use a lot on Visa got a Mona Lisa
So much for the late brand
Cause your money's spent
And it's cold inside
Just like that Barenaked Ladies song
"I'm hot like a wasabe when I'm next to your body"

All I want to do
Is get up early in the morning
(oh I love you baby)
And all I gotta say to you
Is your love's extra ordinary
You're extra ordinary baby

(Your love's such a sweet thing
Your love's such a sweet thing)

All I want to do
Is get up early in the morning
(oh I love you baby)
And all I gotta say to you
Is your love's extra ordinary
You're extra ordinary baby

All I want to do
Is get up early in the morning
(oh I love you baby)
And all I gotta say to you
Is your love's extra ordinary
You're extra ordinary

    General CommentGREAT song. This is one of my favorites by Better Than Ezra. They are terrific! i don't know why they don't get more attention and recognition. It frustrates me! We have the fucking Backstreet boys topping the charts but barely anybody knows of Better Than Ezra. Not only are the better than this Ezra, but they're a hell of a lot better than many other bands who make way to much money for their redundant music.

    General CommentOnly 3 posts on this song? Wow. I would've expected more. Well, this is the first BTE song I heard. It was on the McDonalds commercial and I just had to find out what it was... then they played it in A.E., and when I went to New Orleans I heard it there *first time I'd heard it on the radio... come to think of it I think that was the ONLY time* but haha wonder why since well it's Louisiana??? lol but anyways yea this is a great song it's so upbeat it's a happy song *I think one of you said that*
    Peace -n- Love

    General Commentdude I'm from LA, and Better Than Ezra is like awesome. They're from here, and rock the house. This is an awesome song, I like it and them b/c they aren't like other bands and songwriters. They step up to the plate, and aren't afraid to risk it all. I've seen em like 10 times in concert. They are awesome, and I suggest you check em out if you can.

    General CommentThis is one of the quirkiest, most oddball love songs of all time. It's funny and well-written and just plain fun to sing out loud.

    General CommentI listened to this song probably 5 times and now I loathe it...lol...I'm sorry, but this song is so shallow...it has the capability of identifying a 4th grade relationship, but that's pretty much it. Ah well...it was good the first few times!
