"I Just Wanna Get Along" as written by and Kim Deal....
We were rich once
Before your head exploded
Imagine doing just what the Big Bang did
The whole world
Knew it was loaded
Wave bye-bye 'cause it ain't ever coming down now

I just want to get along
I just want to get along

I look up
The heads fly over
I see a boy I know: his hair's on fire
The whole world I discovered
If you're so special why aren't you dead

I just want to get along
I just want to get along
I just want to get along

Wave bye-bye 'cause it ain't never coming down

I just want to get along
I just want to get along
I just want to get along

    General Commentit's about kim and charles's (frank black) sour relationship in the pixies. but kim got kelley to sing it, so it wouldn't be so obvious.

    General CommentYeah, I thought it was about Kim and Frank Black as well... I love the line "if you're so special then why arent you dead?" One of my favourite lyrics ever, no exaggeration

    General CommentI agree, it's about Kim's relationship with Charles. I think she was too nervous to sing this herself, so she has Kelley do the singing.
