"Cheer Me Up Thank You" as written by and Sally Mary Seltmann....
Oh my god, I can't believe my eyes
Underneath that ghostly pale is that you
Someone in your shape shouldn't be driving
Someone in your shape shouldn't be doing anything at all

You should see yourself in the mirror
With your leather lips and your snakeskin shoes
Do you have to shout in my ear
Do me a favor, just stop talking for a minute or two

You crack me up, you really really do
With your sunglasses on, acting so young
Only I know what you're really up to
You break me up

No, I don't want to sit in your sports car
No, I don't want to hear a tune
All the locals say you'll go far
That's so funny, they don't know you like I do

You crack me up
You twisted wreck
Shouting in the parking lot, think you'll give it one more shot
Better hope they'll cash a check
You break me up

You better ask yourself a question
'Cause you cant live like this for long
You better listen to my suggestion
Before you wind up in somebody else's song

You crack me up, you really really do
With your sunglasses on, acting so young
Only I know what you're really up to
You break me up

Crack me up
Break me up
Crack me up
Break me up
Crack me up

    General CommentI can't believe that no one has commented on this song, it is my favorite New Buffalo song. I think that it is musically and lyrically perfect. Her voice is so beautiful, light, and fits wonderfully with the lyrics.

    The song is obviously about someone who is always able to lift her up. She recalls the wildflowers in the park and the summer that they spent together. This person is able to cheer her up and this song is a song of thanks for making her life brighter.

    General Commenti can't believe people haven't commented on this, either! it's such a lovely song... i can listen to it over and over.

    i'm reminded of my friends this summer... i went through a horrible year, and they cheered me up as summer came. we acted crazy and ignored calls and danced until 2 am. i love them...

    General CommentNew Buffalo is surprisingly actually just one chick by herself, not a band. She has another girl who helps her out with instruments and what not. I saw her live as the support act for Air recently (I know, weird! Air and New Buffalo) and she was AMAZING!

    My OpinionThis song is really good. I like it when she says "summertime, and it melts into dark
    dancing together at night until two cheering me up, and i'm thanking you". These lyrics are awesome.
    Great song
