wesley willis starts to break down
feels the beat and hits the dance floor
i will listen to the radio
still i can't hear you on the telephone

it's a shakedown so count from one to three
and shake your booty 'til the early dawn
you gotta be laid back, rock to obscurity
then you will surely find there's nothing wrong with me

three months have passed
and no reception has left me searching for another one
it's too bad that i was believing
that you could ever be more than deceiving

and when i listen to the radio
now i'm not thinking things about you
and all the things you say that drive me crazy
could not compare to the things you never say

now is the end
i will call her a friend
i won't regret what i said (what i said)

when i become a man then i will surely see
that you were just a girl and you were wrong for me

if you would ever call i know that i'd be home
because i'm waiting and i'm all alone

    General Commentthis sounds like how i feel about my old best friend...about realizing i could never count on him ("you could never be more than deceiving") and about learning to not dwell on missing him ("now i'm not thinking things about you.") but mostly the line about the things you never say...such a keen observation. as many things as he said that drove me crazy, it drove me MORE crazy that he DIDN'T say how much i meant to him...then in the end how i won't regret calling him out on it after we fell out, and how it's okay to let it go and see him as a part of the past that wasn't meant to last forever.
    i adore the keyboard part, and it makes the song fun, so that feeling these things can be positive and not totally bitter.

    General CommentAnother perfect Ozma song. Possibly my favorite. This just strikes me as that point where you're forcing yourself to get over someone and you're starting to gain confidence in yourself that you can do it. "I won't regret what I said"..but you still have that weakness. The beauty of this song is def. not just the lyrics...but that the music starts off fast and funky..and then slows down, gets more serious as the lyrics get more insecure and reflective. ...and p.s. if you haven't heard Wesley Willis...download now..bizarre stuff.

    General Commentya, these are some good lyrics. Trying to get over someone. He knows that he has been wronged, and there is no good reason to date her, but if she ever called, he'd take her back
