My lyrics are bottomless - geeking out over lyrics

Banter about the rhythm of the movement of the feel of the melody of the rhythm of the feeling of Bret and Jemaine's music. Here you will find the largest known collection of Conchords lyrics and chords.

You're right! I can clearly hear "-s" at the end. [image]


I love that song so much. [image]

Thanks ladies! [image] [image] [image] [image]

I just added/fixed the lyrics in my original post. :D

I love that song too. [image] I'll never forget the moment they started to play and Jemaine started singing this song we'd never heard! [image]

Same. [image] And I'll always associate that song with you, Ami, because we were sitting there side by side, sighing together. [image] [image] [image]

"...Sometimes I wonder why we even try"


Is this something about committing a suicide? Why do we even try to die / kill ourselves if not everyone is so lucky to die? [image]

I have serious doubts about this song being against prostitution ;D

"They see him, want him to please them
Want him to play them but they don't even pay him
Oh no, they don't think he's worth it at all..."

[image] this thread! [image]

Some of you know that I really don't listen to lyrics consciously...I listen more to melodies, harmonies, etc. FOTC are definitely an exception. [image]

Bus Driver's Song - this has always been one of my favorite (if not favorite) songs. [image] I rode on a ton of buses in NZ, and was chuckling to myself so many times because of things the bus drivers said (the random facts and also phrases) and the way they said them. Bret and Jemaine definitely nailed it! [image] [image]

The one lyric question I have is from BDS. "breakin' them ______ rules" ? Oh, but I looked up the lyrics and it's "breakin' them changing shed rules"? That's it? [image] It sounds like there's an extra syllable in there after "shed".

(by the way, I hooked up my ipod and played this song for one of my buses one day ;D)

Hotties - I used to never know what they were saying for "Fisher and Paykel" because I'd never heard of that. I think Laura said something about it once which is when I found out that it was an appliance brand. [image] Anyway, one of my bus drivers said it was named after a prostitute (or rather named after a river that was named after a prostitute), but I'm not sure if he was telling the truth or pulling our legs.

"Are you feeling the feeling

Feeling the feeling

That I'm feeling

That we're feeling"

Probably they wrote this song while they were still in love with Sally [image] . Bret is wearing a t-shirt with Sally's picture when they're singing it [image] .

This thread is the sorta catch-all lyrics discussion thread, right? Than I'll just drop this Bret quote here:



"If it's more surreal, I probably did it. Or darker. If there's death involved, I probably did it. If there's love involved, Jemaine probably did it."


- Bret McKenzie

The sentence before that quote:


"Mostly if it's dirty, I've probably started it."

I've noticed some parallels between some lines of their songs. If you find more, it'd great to see them ;D .


This one actually is what Bret and Jemaine noticed themselves:

Too many dicks
Too many dicks on the dance floor...
...Five to one, it's a brodeo,....


The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)
It's 12:02. Just me and you
And seven other dudes around you on the dance floor.


***


a guy doesn't want to admit to his friends he was dumped or rejected

I'm not Crying
And if you think you see some tear tracks down my cheeks,
Please, please don't tell my mates.


1353
If it matters not to you, either way
I'll just say that I wooed you anyway
I'll just tell all my friends that I woo w-w-w-wooed you lady
Because there's a wager in the village that I'd never woo a lady


***


ladies looking at some places that they shouldn't [image]

Sugarlumps
I see you girls checkin' out my trunks.
I see you girls checkin' out the front of my trunks.
I see you girls lookin' at my junk.
Then checkin' out my rump,
Then back to my sugalumps.


(And in fact the whole song about it :P ).

Jenny
...I just didn't look at your face!
That's one of the places you should check
(or any other variation of this line ;))
