So happy I was invited
Give me a reason to get out of the city
See you inside watching swarms on TV
Living or dying in New York it means nothing to me

I gave my heart to the Army
The only sentimental thing I could think of
With cousins and colors and somewhere overseas
But it'll take a better war to kill a college man like me

I'm too tired to drive anyway
Anyway right now
Do you care if I stayed?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find something on this thing
That means nothing enough

Losing my breath
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Losing my breath
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

You and your sister live in a lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a lemonworld
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

You and your sister live in a lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a lemonworld
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

This pricey stuff makes me dizzy
I guess I've always been a delicate man
Takes me a day to remember a day
I didn't mean to let it get so far out of hand

I was a comfortable kid
But I don't think about it much anymore
Lay me on the table, put flowers in my mouth
And we can say that we invented
A summer loving torture party

I'm too tired to drive anyway
Anyway right now
Do you care if I stayed?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find something on this thing
That means nothing enough

You and your sister live in a lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a lemonworld
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

You and your sister live in a lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a lemonworld
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Losing my breath, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
