Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle
Where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la
Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle
Where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la

I got five hundred in twenties and I've got a ton o' great ideas
I'm really worked up
I'm on a good mixture, I don't wanna waste it
I'm on a good mixture, I do not wanna waste it
I wanna go gator around the warm beds of beginners
I'm really worked up

Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle
Where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la
Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle
Where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la

I have weird memories of you wearing long red socks and red shoes
I have weird memories
I have weird memories of you pissin' in a sink, I think
I have weird memories of you

I wanna go gator around the warm beds of beginners
I'm really worked up
I wanna go gator around the warm beds of beginners
I'm really worked up

Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle
Where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la
Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle
Where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la

I have weird memories of you wearing long red socks and red shoes
I have weird memories
I have weird memories of you pissin' in a sink, I think
I have weird memories of you

Parking your car, you said, I'm overwhelmed
You were thinking out loud, you said, I'm overwhelmed
You were parking your car, you said, I'm overwhelmed
You were thinking out loud, you said, I'm overwhelmed

You said, I think I'm like Tennessee Williams
I wait for the click, I wait but it doesn't kick in
I think I'm like Tennesse Williams
I wait for the click, I wait but it doesn't kick in

I have weird memories of you wearing long red socks and red shoes
I have weird memories
I have weird memories of you pissin' in a sink, I think
I have weird memories of you

I have weird memories of you
