Ezra Furman - Teddy I'm Ready Lyrics




Everybody talks sarcastic
Everybody's in the know
I think I might do something drastic
If they don't let me go away from it all
But I can't afford a jet plane
And the price of gas is high
There's nowhere that I can run to
When I feel so sick and shy
Gonna make a big noise to the sky

Teddy, I'm ready to rock and roll
Teddy, I'm ready to rock and roll
And if she smiles at me in the snow
Baby, I'm ready to rock, rock and roll

And I whispered that I loved her
In the ancient photo booth
She's just got one of those faces
That demands the truth
She likes Ted Hawkins too
And the truth is just a mole rat
Crawling underneath the earth
It is naked and it's gnawing away at the world
And it hurts so bad I could cry
But they don't allow no crying
In the cold straight world of men
So I build my little fortress
'Til I can get even

Teddy, I'm ready to rock and roll
Teddy, I'm ready to rock and roll
I can see now, she's an angel
Flying in my bedroom window
I'm ready to rock and roll, ready to rock and roll

    Everybody talks sarcastic

    There's nowhere that I can run to
    When I feel so sick and shy
    Gonna make a big noise to the sky

    SHE LIKES TED HAWKINS TOOOOO!!!!!

    idranktodie 78

    Nick Cusmano That’s my favorite part. Love me some Ted Hawkins too!

  11. Dixiembre

    The trumpets reminds me The Edge of Glory of Lady Gaga :) !

  12. Shannon Gallagher

    I was lucky enough to hear the whole KCRW interview and show rolling down Whittier Blvd in Pico Rivera in a diesel truck thinking to myself 'THIS is American rock and roll.' Turned it up, left it playing when I got to the job site and everyone loved it.

  13. Maddy Hookway

    he sounds like he would be good in a remake of rocky horror show. He sounds like Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff :)))

  14. SalamCheVodire

    Eine Mischung aus Jagger und Young - wunderbar!

  15. Lura Lacy

    Ezra is so fucking great. I secretly want my daughter to marry him!

    TheGogogadget123

    Lura Lacy too late hes engaged. Boom

  16. Mark Hartley

    Awesome ! I caught the Coachella Internet Live stream quite by accident on 4-16-17 and was immediately intrigued by this awesome music..loved it right away..look forward to this great band stopping in Houston

  17. Leah Frances

    does anyone know the notes for the sax riff?

    flexibilitymanager

    a, b, c, d ... etc.

  18. Attackhug

    THis outfit!!! Truly an icon

  19. The Last Taarakian

    gotta love that yarmulke

  20. Jude Mckinley

    I saw him at end of the road (England)

  21. Kenzie Lassen

    I heard this song on the radio over the summer and instantly fell in love with it

  22. Євген Сурняєв

    One day he's gonna be a superstar.

  23. Miss Lemon

    Damn!!!! Yes! ♥ I found another gem today!

  24. Powell Pressburger

    Weak outtake not worthy of Ezra after his brilliant Perpetual Motion People album. The lyrics, superb on that album, are a total non-event here. This is only as good as the tracks of the albums that preceded that one.

  25. maddymud

    Saw him @ H-Bowl Sunday night -- stage patter was so arch and flat out funny -- nice name drop on Ted Hawkins

    Rachel Muller

    Whats a name drop

  26. Lucia B

    Geniale...!!! His voice is absolutely fantastic...

  27. James Jordan

    He is truly an unrealised genius

  28. Sean Flora

    Is Ezra wearing a yamulke in this video? <3

    Bee Round

    Probably. He's very proud and devout about his faith.

    Sean Flora

    +Bee Round I'm beginning to see that. Saw him referred to as Reb somewhere. I was fortunate to hang out with him for a bit in Portland, but the conversation didn't turn to matters of faith.

  30. Shelley James

    By the way, it's totally worth going to the station's website and listening to the whole thing. The interview is hilarious. "Has anyone ever told you that I've got beautiful blue eyes?". Lol.

    IndieRockerHippy

    Too funny. And the bit where the interviewer thought Mango and the Mangroves were an actual band! :)

  31. LS16 Geek

    What, who.. who are these. It's great. cheers guys

  32. Cheese Fraser

    This is awesome! I can't wait for the EP coming out in August

  33. Velcom Cs

    is this artist a man or a lady?

    Shelley James

    Dude, if you think we weren't answering, you need to read the thread. We all said the same as you, basically.

    Liam Campbell

    Velcom Cs did you guys come here to listen to the song or to invalidate Ezra Furman's gender? leave him alone

    The Last Taarakian

    Geoff Wilde your thinking of sex. Gender is a social construct.

    Rachel Muller

    @Shelley James a dress? I dont get why people thought so

  34. EzraFurmanFan

    i love ezras music its so fantastic and groovy i always look forwards for the next song coming out!!!

    Geoff Wilde

    It certainly is

    Emily Lawson

    EzraFurmanFan hey 👋 remember me off instagram

    EzraFurmanFan hey 👋 remember me off instagram

    @Emily Lawson OMG hey !!!!

  35. lacorde

    What a unique voice

    atsuya k

    Jules Cordonnier not unique but definitely reminiscent to the great legends of the past ( particularly Ziggy and Lou Reed).

    idranktodie 78

    atsuya k Don’t forget Gordon Gano from the violent femmes. He sounds almost exactly like him. I do love Ezra Furman though.
