"The Famous Polka" as written by and John S./flansburgh Linnell....
The famous person wears the same size water skis as me
She's got three cars, as many years I've lived in this city
Her hair is blond and mine is brown, they both start with a be
But when the phone inside her rib cage rings it's not for me
But when the phone inside her rib cage rings it's not for me

    General CommentObviously about a guy that is obsessed with a celebrity girl and is trying to rationalize why they would be perfect for each other, but realizes it can never happen.

    General CommentI love TMBG's major-key scathing commentaries of society! It's just great.

    General Commentyea I think its more general than that, (I heard it as "...water skis as WE..." so i got a more group image tho.)
    I think its mocking idol worship in general, something i can relate to, I hardly know any celebrities by name, and people will sometimes do anything no matter how stupid and trivial to emulate their idols.
