Analyzing choice lyrics.
"You're the best girl that I ever did see,
The great Larry Bird Jersey 33"
Obviously this summer girl reminds LFO about the Boston Celtics player... they're both great... and Larry Bird's nemesis was Magic Johnson... if you show a hot girl a magic trick she'll think you're a nerd... so a hot girls nemesis is also magic.
Stayed all summer then went back home,
Macauly Culkin wasn't Home Alone
Fell deep in love,but now we ain't speaking
Michael J Fox was Alex P Keaton
What was going through LFO's mind when writing these lyrics: I was there with that girl for the summer, then I had to go home... Home... hey... wait a second... in that movie home alone Macauly Culkin wasn't actually home alone, because there were hilarious robbers that would keep him company, not to mention that old man. He had plenty of company. HE WAS NOT HOME ALONE! WHY HASN'T THIS GIRL CALLED ME! OH MY GOD REMEMBER FAMILY TIES?!
There was a good man named Paul Revere
I feel much better baby when you're near
That Paul Revere warned people of the British. He was a good man. I bet the Americans felt more comfortable when Paul Revere warned them, so they felt safe. I feel safe when this girl is near me, because I'll probably engage in some sort of sex. I would argue Paul Revere and this girl wearing abercrombie are comparable.
Like the color purple,macaroni and cheese,
Ruby red slippers and a bunch of trees
Call you up but whats the use
I like Kevin Bacon,but I hate Footloose
The greatest piece of art about these lyrics is that he is very very specific about what he likes and dislikes... even so far as to go into the one particular Kevin Bacon movie he despises... but he also for some reason likes "a bunch of trees."
