"Stranger" as written by Jason S. Finn, Chris Ballew and David Michael Dederer....
You, Lynard Skinnard-hat and
Me, little kitty
Sat across with a velvet jacket
Wild orange hair and dark, dark eyes
I gawked like a twelve-year-old - smitten
Carla the stripper,
Straight from L.A.
You seem cool for a naked chick in a booth
Let's be pals some day
In other words,
Put some clothes on and call me

I saw you
It was incredible

Slim, relax,
Fine wine at the (QFC)
On a snowy Saturday night
Black pearls and I swear you were drinkin' beer
You were the redhead behind the counter there
I'm the one who fell off his chair there
You had your dry-cleaning and I think you're dreaming

I saw you
It was incredible
Mumbled these words at you
Unintelligible

My, my, my, my
My, my, my, my, my, my, my

My, my, my, my
My, my, yea hey-hey
Hey who had what time is it?

    General CommentAmazing sone, there's probably not a hidden meanin, instead of the obvious - That it's a song about a prostitute and who also works day shifts at the diner where the guy tried to pick her up but was stunned to say anything.

    General CommentThe presidents are from Seattle, and here there's an idependently-published weekly magazine called "The Stranger". In the magazine there are movie reviews, concert info, and personal ads. There's also one section called "I Saw You" or somthing. In it people can try and get in contact with people they met or saw in the area. All the lyrics from this song are actually taken from the magazine.
