well she wakes up every morning
to the sound of sarah records
on a compilation tape
her friend had sent to her from paris
well it's not to say she didn't like
the college station
but her days left in this town
were counting down to graduation
she said hey hey hey
with less than three weeks to go
she tried to justify the goth scene
but the relevance was low
and she said hey hey hey
won't you listen to me
well you can keep the punk rock
ska rap beats and house
fuck me i'm twee

she packed her little teddy totebag
saved some tickets for herself
picked out her favorite lucksmiths single
took the Cher Doll off the shelf
she grabbed her slumberland guitar case
and her 14 iced bears ring
took down her IFOJ poster
and 'the band who would be king'
and she said hey hey hey
I'm taking 2nd to steal
you know you won't meet barker's beauties
unless you learn to spin the wheel
and she said hey hey hey
won't you listen to me
well you can keep the punk rock
ska rap beats and house
fuck me i'm twee

she said i may not beat my sister
at this stupid game of uno
but at least i know the difference
between a boscoe and a bruno
sick of stickin' around just like those magnets on the fridge
but when i finally leave this town
please don't throw aggi from the bridge
she said hey hey hey
there's just one thing i know
you'll find more posies in the used bin
than there are people at the show
and she said hey hey hey
won't you listen to me
well you can keep the punk rock
ska rap beats and house
fuck me i'm twee

    General CommentThis song is a love song to sub-genre of "Twee" music (the type of music Tullycraft plays) and most of the lines refrence either a band, a record company somehow connected with Twee music.
    Refrences I know:
    Sarah Records, Cher Doll, Little Teddy, Slumberland, and 14 Iced Bears are all record companies.
    Lucksmiths and Posies are bands
    "Don't throw Aggi off from bridge" is a refrence, I belive to The Pixies.

    General Comment..Uh, I thought 14 Iced Bears was a band. Not a record company.

    Anyways, this is a -great- song. Way to tribute! :D

    General CommentOh, Tullycraft is just good times. I love really jangly pop-culture infused pop music, and that's exactly what they are. Hell if I know what any of their songs *mean*, except maybe...yeah, I don't know. It's just sweet music.

    General Commentyou're right; 14 Iced Bears is definitely a band.

    this song is pretty straightforwardly about the 'twee' lifestyle and it namedrops popular twee record labels, bands and songs.

    General Comment'The Band That Would Be King' is the name of a documentary on the band Half Japanese.
    Boscoe is an Irish children's show about a puppet.
    Bruno, I think, is either a reference to the Sesame Street character or to the character from Lewis Carrol's book Sylvie and Bruno.
    IFOJ - The Incredible Force Of Junior, a Seattle indie band.
