"Well, O.K," she says, "I'll come on back,
Or you come to my place" - ya gotta love that.
I've heard parents speak of their children on stage -
Ya gotta love that, at primary school age.
When driving along, the first time you see
Your band's street poster, accidentally;
Friday night after work; or Steve Waugh out to bat;
There's beer in the fridge - ya gotta love that.

"It's only a lump" - ya gotta love that
When the tests are done, and results are back;
Unleaded's got cheaper; a seat on the wing;
When at last you're sure she keeps on looking;
The Kerrigan's castle; and Kafka's? - unsure;
Literary allusions that aren't too obscure;
You're in bed by ten - ya gotta love that -
After too many nights late back to back.

Some racist bastard says, "Why, you little black…"
Che Cockatoo Collins talkin' right back -
Ya gotta love that; and the phone finally rings -
It's the girl calling; when Paul Robeson sings;
Lust, before it goes away - and then when it's back;
Flashing high beams to warn of a speed trap -
Ya gotta love that. Your band writes a slow track,
And some people like it. Ya gotta love that.

    General Commentfavorite tism song, bar none. it seems tism spent all their time bitching and moaning about people or things they hate, or things that piss them off. this song it the opposite, its the small things in life that you really enjoy. awesome song
