Folds, Ben - You To Thank Lyrics




By the time the buzz was wearing off
we were standing out on the sidewalk
with our tattoos that looked like rings
in the hot Nevada sun

Kids piled high, our moms and dads shook hands
in a party of Polaroid friends
rented a pool and hired a band
Maybe they knew more then we knew
cause they danced and drank
while we jumped off the deep end

Oh I've got you to thank
for this

Christmas came around
yeah and everything was going to crap
and our moms and dads not a clue to be had
Yeah we put on a pretty good act
and they seemed to all need to believe it
so we danced and smiled and paddled hard beneath it

Oh I've got you to thank
for this

You can't say you've never had a doubt
and smoked it down but really wanted out

By the time the buzz was wearing off
we were standing out on the sidewalk
with our tattoos that looked like rings
in the hot Nevada sun
and they won't fade

I've got you to thank

  15. likeriver

    @youngblunts He's been compared to Dana Carvey, but I think Ben has a far much more childlike, playful sense of talent.

  16. mtb416

    @ZenBarracuda Very well put.

  17. youngblunts

    This song has a sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives it a big boost.

    I wanna show you guys something: search "Carolina Crown 2009 Pit Warmup Allentown". The first half is this song, second half is Not The Same (also Ben Folds if you weren't familiar). It's seriously amazing.

    Thaigo

    mustangjps14 That was actually pretty cool. They even did the solo part!

    @2010profile And you thought you had it.

    He could write a children's potty song and it would be gold.
    He could write a jingle for condoms and it would be gold.
    He could write an elevator music song (and although they are annoying) and it would be pure 100% gold.
    He could...
    Okay, I think I made my point.
