I'm a good guy for a gal,
So won't you look my palm over?
I've got time for a chat,
So won't you tell me my future?
I'm gonna break down at fifty,
And I'm not quite a stallion.
I'm a good guy for a gal,
And I'm mentally slipping.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
What's that ya' see?
Oh boy, find out what's up with me.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
What's that ya' see?
Tell me more of what's gonna be.
If you're friends with P.,
Well, then you're friends with me.
If you're down with P.,
Well, then you're down with me.
Friends of P.
Friends of P.
Friends of P.
Somebody's fame and fortune is gonna come to me early.
I get two loves in my life, and I'm dying at ninety.

    General CommentI work for an entertainment magazine and I spoke with Matt Sharp yesterday. Here is what he told me about the song:

    "It is about Ric Ocasek wife Paulina Porizkova. Ric produced the first weezer record. His wife would come down while we were recording and she would do these palm readings. She was a very bright woman, and she would always do these palm readings for fun. She said the only people that have ever written her a song…she was a supermodel in the 80’s…the only people were these bad heavy metal bands…that night I went in the hotel that Pat Wilson and I were staying at and we said we had to bring her in and write a song about her for fun."

    General CommentActually, P is Paulina Porizkova, Ric Ocasek's model wife. Ric produced weezer's first album (the Blue Album, and later went on to produce the Green Album as well) Of course Matt Sharp was in weezer then and so he wrote a little ditty as a tribute to Paulina.

    General CommentTowards the end of my senior year in high school myself and a couple friends were filming a student film about a student who dies drunk driving. While filming the scene where he passes out at the wheel, my friend leaned on the steering wheel, careening his Jeep Cherokee down the cliff we were driving parallel to. This is the song we were playing. (btw the footage we got for our movie was great and we didn't die)

    General CommentWell, the lyrics suggets it's a sarcastic, or possibly naive song about having your palm read.
