ooo-hoo...
you wanna cry
when you're
dealing with
the kids

ooo-hoo...
they know it all
and they're
pinning you
to boards

it's a game
and you'll play
but you can't
have fun
when all
they do is say
lies

they know it all
and they're
pinning you
to boards

it's a game
and you'll play
but you can't
have fun
when all
they do is say
lies
lies

    General CommentBasically, Rivers gets sick and tired of his fans telling him what to do, what to say, how to act, what to write, how to play, etc: "They know it all and they're pinning you to boards..." And when he doesn't do what they want they spread rumors: "It's a game that you'll play, but you can't have fun when all they say is lies ..."

    I feel sorry for him for having such weird fans like us :)

    General Commentthis ones about women - what else?

    its about playing these silly games ("its a game and youll play") in relationship and getting fooled then cause "they (women) know it all and theyre pinning you to boards" - and they win cause "all they do is say lies"

    General CommentI love Weezer, and they're my favourite band, but Weezer fans kind of scare me. So do message boards in general though, so maybe that might have something to do with it, I don't know.

    General CommentFavorite song on the album, and I guess I agree with the first meaning posted. I never looked at it this way but it sounds logical.
