now if you think i'm wasting your time again
i'm wasting your time
when you pick me up in duty free
that's when i thought i'd be the cross in your t
or must see tv

but if you think i'm wasting your time again
no, you're wasting mine
when you're playing for a prime-time dream
the c n b scene
now i'm just another split in your seam the i in your team

ooo please don't get too excited
oooo maybe you're not invited to my action adventure
my action adventure dream

so when you think you're on the fast track
you find it's just a cul-de-sac back
in that adult lifestyle community
where all your little boys, your action toys are duty free

ooo please don't get too excited
oooo maybe you're not invited to my action adventure
my action adventure dream

so i wonder what you got your persona for
cause there's a 2-for-one down at the corner-store
and i wonder could ya pep it up a bit
you know throw a fit
you go ahead and dance
i'll just sit

but if you think i'm wasting your time again
no, you're wasting mine
when you're playing for a prime-time dream
the c n b scene
now i'm just another split in your seam the i in your team

so i'm looking at the back of my hand again
i'm looking at the back of my hand again
to what end if i can't even find a goddamn pen

    General CommentThough in the album version of this song he doesn't say "another" or "goddamn", he does sing it this way on several live recordings. And the rest of these lyrics are spot on, according to Andrew Bird's official website: bowloffire.com

    The c n b scene is correct.
