"President Garfield" as written by and Juliana Hatfield....
Every time that truck goes by I think of you
You drove right through the wall
And now the kids all want to follow you

I don't smoke, so why am I smokin'?
Took a hit and now I'm chokin'

He wrote a book about himself
I keep it on my shelf
And when I was in Washington
I walked down all the streets of which he wrote

I can't sing; I'm not a singer
I swear I'm gonna kill myself if you bring her
Her, her, her, her, her, her

Iron will, iron hand
Neck like a tire, iron man
Iron fist, pump that jam
Iron eye, iron gland
Iron face, iron plan
Fill that empty coffee can
Iron bar, metal band
Pumping iron man

I am only human; I am weak
I want his power inside of me
And I'm not talking about a piece of meat
I'm saying something really deep
I'm saying something really deep
I'm saying something really deep
I'm saying something really deep
I'm saying something really...
I'm saying something really deep
I'm saying something really deep
I'm saying something really deep
I'm saying something really deep, yeah, yeah

    General CommentThis song is rumored to be about Henry Rollins. The trucks refer to the Rollins moving trucks and the 'Garfield' refers to his real last name.

    General CommentIt's crazy to read carrie713's comment. I've always thought of Henry Rollins when I've heard this song. He's from DC and, of course, writes books about himself. Then the whole "neck like a tire, iron man" sounds like him. Plus, Henry Rollins is a cool counter balance to JH's singing style.
