…is keeping me rather busy today. And, I don’t have anything to say.


Some Fantastic

Barenaked Ladies

One day I will build a fountain

Drink and never grow old

Then I’ll market an elixir

That will eliminate the common cold

Find your sickness on my list

Pay up front and make a wish

One day I will work with animals

All the tests I’m gonna do

All my stuff’s completely natural

And when we’re done we’ll boil ’em down for glue

That we can use to re-adhere

Your lips to mine if you were here

There’s a lot I will never do

Some fantastic, I know it’s true

But none as much as my want to be with you

I can’t stand to wait in line long

So I built a new machine

It just measures up the distance

And then eliminates the folks between

One day I’ll construct a satellite

And I’ll name it after you

‘Cause you were the greatest friend of all

Except for when you split my lip in two

To see the look upon your face

As I launch you into space

There’s a lot I will never do

Some fantastic, I know it’s true

But none as much as my want to be with you

Bye-bye self-respect

I haven’t had much of it since you left

I missed out on the best of you

Some day I will find the secret

to your social chemistry

Then I’ll print it on a t-shirt

And it’ll make you want to be with me

If I wear it past your work

You’ll see other guys are jerks

Much like pheromones for flies

You will not avoid my eyes

There’s a lot I will never do

Some fantastic, I know it’s true

But none as much as my want to be with you

Bye-bye self-respect

I haven’t had much of it since you left

I missed out on the best of you
