Same Thing (live) Lyrics

by Barenaked Ladies

[Imrov Intro]
Steve: Oh don't worry, there's a little matchmaker-matchmaker coming up for everybody.
Ed: 1,2, 1,2,3...

[Intro]
What does it mean to wake out of a dream and be
Wearing some else's shorts?
I've been around the block, at least on my bike
I was prepared for the news but not for full-scale war

[Verse 1]
I found me an answer, in a grocery store
I found me an answer in the form of an old man with
A cardigan on, this guy's got thirty years on me but
He stops and smiles just to say "Hello,
didn't I see you on TV?"

[Chorus]
It must've been the same thing
It must've been the same thing
It must've been the same thing
Charlie Brown went through

[Verse 2]
I'm in a comic store
Lookin' for some mistakenly priced comic I could make a fortune on
In walks the Fantastic Four
I say "Don't go; That last issue was cool!"

[Chorus]
It must've been the same thing
It must've been the same thing
It must've been the same thing
Mom and Dad went through

[Verse 3]
I'm in a jewelery store
Looking at a wedding ring the size of 3 or 4 paychecks
In walks the girl next door
I say "I do"
Funny how fast things change

[Chorus]
It must've been the same thing
It must've been the same thing
It must've been the same

[Bridge]
These things all end
Who asked you anyway?
You'll have to bend
Who asked you anyway?

[Verse 4]
Now I'm in a general store,
Looking at a photograph of a smiling 8-year-old
Who's got a fist the size of his younger brother now
Tuggin' on his shirt, saying "Let's go home"
Oooohhhhhh

[Chorus]
It must've been the same thing (x20)
