You Run Away Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away from me.

I tried to be your brother
You cried and ran for cover
I made a mess, who doesn’t
I did my best but it wasn’t enough

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away from me.

I’ll give you something can cry about
One thing you should try it out
Hold a mirror shoulder high
When you’re older look you in the eye
When you’re older look you in the eye

I tried but you tried harder
I lied but you lied smarter
You made me guess who was it
I did my best but it wasn’t enough

OOOOHHHHHHHOOOHHH

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away from me

You run away (I tried to be your brother)
You could turn and stay (You cried and ran for cover)
But you run away from me (I made a mess, who doesn’t, I did my best but it wasn’t enough)

But that’s not something to cry about (crrryyyy!)
It’s not something to lie about

You run away (I tried to be your brother)
You could turn and stay (You cried and ran for cover)
But you run away from me (I made a mess, who doesn’t, I did my best but it wasn’t enough)

Summertime Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Saving it up
Savoring every ounce of sunlight
What comes to be, gradually
Feels like overnight

So, bundle up
And hunker down
See you on the other side
Mercury falls so

How, how do we make it through the days?
How do we not cave in, and bottom out?
Well, you have to understand that
Soon enough we'll wake up from such a daze,
thanks to all the many ways
We're all pushing through, for Summertime

We cover it up, we bottle it in,
But that won't make it feel right
Toppin' it off, rubbing it in
There's always a big mess of white

So, bundle up
And hunker down
Here it comes again
Just one more round
See you on the other side
Mercury falls so

How, how do we make it through the days?
How do we not cave in, and bottom out?
Well, you have to understand that
Soon enough we'll wake up from such a daze,
thanks to all the many ways
We're all pushing through, for Summertime
Our love pushing through, for Summertime

How, how do we make it through the days?
How do we not cave in, and bottom out?
Well, you have to understand that
Soon enough we'll wake up from such a daze,
thanks to all the many ways
We're all pushing through, for Summertime

Another Heartbreak Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Hold on, here comes another heartbreak
Hold on, here comes another heartache
Too bad, but it's still a chance I had to take
Hold on, here comes another heartbreak

Soaking in another rainy day
I stopped to watch the long parade
Winding slowly through the maze
Hold on, here comes another heartbreak
Hold on, here comes another heartache
Too bad, but it's still a chance I had to take
Hold on, here comes another heartbreak

I lost my way in the summer breeze
I fell down to my hands and knees
And now I am searchimg
Through the autumn leaves

Hold on, here comes another heartbreak
Hold on, here comes another heartache
Too bad, but it's still a chance I had to take
Hold on, here comes another heartbreak

And here you stand in front of me
In all of the complexity
That I had Mistaken for simplicity

Hold on, here comes another heartbreak
Hold on, here comes another heartache
Too bad, but it's still a chance I had to take
Hold on, here comes another heartbreak

Hold on

Four Seconds Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Goes to show
It's not what you know
(But) who you know
So's, you know
I can go with the flow
Build my note
Then throw to snow
Before the show
Stay low
Play it on a Dobro
Oh, I tiptoe to and fro
From Ontario
My stereo's blue like the rodeo
Growing like a freak show free throw
It's just the intro
Keep dropping like dominoes

One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi, four

Now rewind
What'd you have in mind?
Could we unwind?
I'm fine
We can find a streamline
Recombine - intertwine
If I'm gonna headline
Tryin' to be moving all the behinds
Line to line
Try to shine
Redesigned - redefined
Keeping up the spellbind
Gotta make it worth the grind
Just in time to have another close encounter of the third kind

One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi, four

I've been away for years and a day
You'd be thinking I'd be lonely
But I'm out here to stay
Wouldn't have it any other way

Oh flip, the light is turning orange
Coat ripped when I caught it in the door hinge
I slip when the lady in the four-inch
Bought it in a store in Germany
You wore it like a makeshift snowdrift
Had to get a gift
Saw the red shift rift
Gretta got an eyelift
Oh sure, that one's obscure
Maybe piss-poor, but I had to take a little detour

I've been away for years and a day
You'd be thinking I'd be lonely
But I'm out here to stay
Wouldn't have it any other way

One Mississippi
Two Mississippi
Three Mississippi
Four

On The Lookout Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Roll this one from the top

On the lookout
The wind stopped
We chose this spot
To begin

When we looked out
The waves crashed
Smashing our past
Moving fast
Nothing Lasts
Make it last

This all will pass
Just like us
Just like this spot
Don't miss this
We've only got one shot

Hold on this rock face
It's dried and cracked
But grab on
Don't wait long
Longing to
Look out for you

This all will pass
Just like us
Just like this spot
Don't miss this
We've only got one shot

On the lookout
On the lookout
On the lookout
On the lookout

Ordinary Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Don't you know we lost?
Sunk so low, we just called it off
How an ordinary moment gets tossed
A more than ordinary woman's cost

Believe me
Believe me

Thought I understood
Fought to buy the whole neighborhood
You ought to try, "I told you so", it feels good
Bought it high, and sold as low as I could

Believe me
Believe me

It's come undone
Done
It's come undone
Done

Have another look, another look around
Have another look around

I can't stay too long
Can only play a handful of songs
How a melody can make up your mind
Take a memory and leave it behind

Believe me
Believe me

It's come undone
Done
It's come undone
Done

I Have Learned Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

No, don't know everything
There's known unknowns
Too long just wondering
Lazybones

Spare me the parlor tricks
That impress your fans
Waving your candlesticks
In your burned hands

I have learned to live with livin' with
Every choice we made
But I would love to live with giving this
Shaky voice some shade

I don't think you're comfortable
Until you're not
When things get wonderful
You get hot

Can you forgive me for
What I had to do?
I'd use a metaphor
But I'm done with you

I have learned to live with livin' with
Every choice we made
But I would love to live with giving this
Shaky voice some shade

Same sun
Same fun
Whole new world

I have learned to live with livin' with
Every choice we made
But I would love to live with giving this
Shaky voice some shade

I have learned to live with livin' with
Every choice we made
But I would love to live with giving this
Shaky voice some shade

Every Subway Car Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

My backpack was faded black
But now it's all blue
It looks whack, but it's compact
And works like brand new

I had found an old Greyhound
But it wasn't my scene
I'm underground at the turnaround

Warehouses above
All I'm thinking of
You gave your heart to me
Soon the world will see
Our graffiti love
Spray paint on my glove
They'll wonder who you are
On every subway car

I'm on my own, I'm Sly Stallone
I did it for you
I've outgrown my wings, and flown
Into something brand new
I show restraint, I'm the Patron Saint
Of urban gardens in bloom
If I don't faint ingesting paint
Breathing all of these fumes

Warehouses above
All I'm thinking of
You gave your heart to me
Soon the world will see
Our graffiti love
Spray paint on my glove
They'll wonder who you are
On every subway car

On every subway car you look amazing
While streaming out of bars their glasses raising
Systematically refused
Then chemically removed

Our graffiti love
On every subway car

Jerome Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

When you walk in Jerome
You never walk alone
'Cause the ghosts dance all around you
All around you, in Jerome

Take the Bloody Basin Road
Through Black Water Canyon
Up the twisted road
To Mingus Mountain
Then you'll know you are home
In the ghost town called Jerome
Where the ghosts dance all around you
All around you, in Jerome

Bar brawlers and drifters
Gamblers and gun fighters
Ladies of the evening, and copper miners
They kept the jailhouse filled
'til it fell down the hill

When you walk in Jerome
You'll never walk alone
'Cause the ghosts dance all around you
All around you, in Jerome

All around you, in Jerome, in Jerome
All around you, in Jerome, in Jerome
All around you, in Jerome, in Jerome
They're all around you, in Jerome, in Jerome
They're all around you, in Jerome, in Jerome

How Long Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

So, give it up for anger
It makes us strong
I maybe just meant to thank her
Strong and wrong

Don't say how long
Don't say how long
How long

We never discuss the notches
We just fight away
Even a busted watch is right twice a day

Don't say how long
Don't say how long
How long
Don't say how long
Don't say how long
How long

I know you know how it feels
I know you know it's for reals
I know you know I know you... so don't say it

That's what it takes to go there
On and on
You make a good case for nowhere
So that's where I've gone
Don't say how long
Don't say how long
How long

Don't say how long
Don't say how long
How long
Don't say when
Don't say where
Don't say how long

Golden Boy Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Hey golden boy,
Don't let the darkness in to take you away from yourself,
Nobody else, there's nobody left to make you run,
Somebody knew, maybe it's you, only left to be needing,
One of these days you're gonna wake up wondering how it went down,
Then in that daze you're gonna make up something and wallow around in your room,
Maybe it's soon, maybe it won't be for some time,
I hope you'll be, thinking of me, and I hope you won't be lonely,

[Chorus:]
Hang your head, don't let your hair fall out,
Hang your hat, at somebody else's house,

Game set and match, I have to give that to you, you are the man,
But wait, there's a catch, everyone sees right through you but that was the plan all along,
Cause tell me I'm wrong, tell me you wanted something else,
Went to the cone, made you a splone (?) now I hope you won't be lonely any more,

[Chorus:]

No no no, you're not a quitter,
So don't don't don't you be bitter,
Go go go where you glitter away.........

[Chorus: x2]
Somebody else's house, somebody else's house.

I Saw It Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I saw
I saw it
We all did
It hurt
I heard it
We all hid

You took what we all hide
We all hide from
The hooks went right inside
That's where they hung

In the park
By the playground
I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
I won't let you

You weighed and waited
You kept steady
You'd count, and recount it
Now you're ready

You took what we all hide
We all hide from
The hooks went right inside
Then the feeling numbs

I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on
I won't let you down

You say you deserve it
I won't stand and observe it
From this point on
We won't allow this, brother
If we don't end this now
There'll be others

I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on
I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on
I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on
I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on
I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on
I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on
I won't let you down
In the park
By the playground
From this point on

The Love We're In Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Why aren't we making the love we're in?
It could be the last time
You never want to throw that away
Why aren't we making the love we're in?

Less heart to heart, and more brain to brain
If you're feeling tender, I'm Novacain
Lets crash the party, I'll crash the plane

Why aren't we making the love we're in?
It could be the last time
You never want to throw that away
Why aren't we making the love we're in?

Even a beggar must have to choose.
They say you shouldn't wager more than you can lose
Make mine a double, just hold the booze

Why aren't we making the love we're in?
It could be the last time
You never want to throw that away
Why aren't we making the love we're in?

In, in
Anyone can make it but we're
In, in
Some will even fake it but we're
In, in
Why don't we just make the love we're in?
Why don't we just make the love we're in?
Why don't we just make the love we're in?

Watching The Northern Lights Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Floating like a dream cloud above the lake
Drifting in and out of sight
Forty miles above us
Watching the Northern Lights

Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights

In the true northern darkness
Far from the sleeping towns
We lay there in silence
Young and free, half asleep, spellbound

We were watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights

In my mind after all this time
The memory is still clear
All I find I leave behind
The song is my souvenir

Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights
Watching the Northern Lights

All In Good Time Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

In time we move so fast
In time away from the past
In time the pain heals at last
All in good time

In time the minutes dance
In time we trust a romance
In time we'll go live in France
All in good time

The clock has two hands
Strong to hold you tight
You can't buy another chance
To get things right

In time we learn to choose
In time we gain what we'll lose
In time we'll all sing the blues
All in good time

There is time, don't worry
Sometimes you won't care
And in time you won't hurry,
you're not going anywhere

In time we walk until
In time over the hill
In time we pay the bill
All in good time

All in good time
All in good time
All in good time

Moonstone Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Haven't said my point of view
I really don't want to bother you
I will see this whole thing through
I really don't want to bother you

I Will
Shoulder the winter snow
I Will
Hold her and let her go

Tattered posters ??
They wrote your name there on the wall
Numbers meaningless to me
What will it do to disagree

I Will
Shoulder the weight he'll need
I Will
Hold her and let her bleed

Moonstone has never shaw so bright
Never in its history
Cold water will wave you goodbye
But you never gone from me

I Will
Shoulder the winter snow
I Will
Hold her and let her go

7 8 9 Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

1, 2, 3 and 4 more makes 7
6 is afraid of 7 'cause 7 ate 9

9 was minding his business
Talking to 10 about Gordy Howe's clothes
Why 7 ate 9 nobody knows

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10
What about 9?
7 ate 9

Oh, the cat'll have to live with 8 lives now
Ronaldo will have to make do
Ever since 7 ate 9 it seems
I've got an extra finger and an extra toe too
7 ate 9

Once upon a time in our solar system
We couldn't make do without 9
But Pluto's not a planet now
So 8 will do fine

Oh, the cat'll have to live with 8 lives now
The Chinese will be out of luck
Vampires will have to think of some other method
'Cause without their K 9's how will they suck?
7 ate 9

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10
What about 9?
7 ate 9, 7 ate 9, 7 ate 9
Oh, 7 ate 9

The Ninjas Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I woke up this morning and everything was different
Something was strange in the air
I woke up this morning and everything was different
I knew that the ninjas had been there

I looked all around my bedroom, underneath the dresser
Behind the bed, but nothing could be found
There was nothing left behind them, nowhere that I could find them
No fingerprints or crumbs on the ground

The ninjas are deadly and silent
They're also unspeakably violent
They speak Japanese, they do whatever they please
And sometimes they vacation in Ireland

The ninjas are deadly and silent
They're also unspeakably violent
They speak Japanese, they do whatever they please
And if you tear off their masks they'll be smiling

Pollywog In A Bog Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

In a puddle by the trail
Flips its tiny tail
Just like a great big whale
But smaller than a snail

It's a pollywog in a bog
Swims under soggy logs
One day he'll be a frog
Pollywog in a bog

Overhead a cedar tree
Gives the shade he needs
Munching while he feeds
On lily pads and weeds

Knows not where he's from
Or how his life had begun
He's not the only one
And soon he'll breathe through lungs

It's hard to believe
With the arms you'll receive
You'll lift your head
Above the water and breathe

Gills shrink away
And may there come a day
When you reach the shore
With a whole world to explore

Ribbit, ribbit, a tadpole exhibit
It's a transformation no one can inhibit
Amphibian change may seem strange
Take them gills and the tail and they all rearrange

Out come the legs for the jump, jump
Hope to the top of the stump, stump
Out come the legs for the jump, jump
Hope to the top of the stump, stump

Where the mud is deep
Frost will soon creep
And without a peep
A frog is fast asleep

It was a pollywog in a bog
Swam under soggy logs
In the morning fog
Pollywog in a bog

Pollywog in a bog
Swam under soggy logs
In the morning fog
Pollywog in a bog

Pollywog in a bog
Swam under soggy logs
In the morning fog

Raisins Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Raisins come from grapes, people come from apes
I come from Canada
I came in first place in a nonexistent race
To rebuild the Parthenon

The Parthenon's in Greece or was it in Grease 2?
I can't keep my movies straight
When I make mistakes I use a lot of salt
'Cause salt makes m'steaks taste great

I don't want to be a bother
But I think the phone's for you

I've got orange pants, I wear them when I dance
But I don't get out that much
You are just too loud, I passed you in a crowd
Thank you and keep in touch

I don't speak Chinese, not even words like please
Thank you or how are you
But I can parle FranA ais, I parled a bit today
It seemed like the thing to do

I don't want to be a bother
But I think you're in my seat

Eraser Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Eraser, eraser, eraser

I draw it with a pencil because it's just a stencil
And if I do retry it, well then I can't deny it
I'm gonna need my little eraser

Eraser, eraser, eraser
Eraser, eraser, eraser
Eraser

I might have to redo it, I might have to work through it
But I try not to chew it 'cause I just shouldn't do it
'Cause I might need my little eraser

If I wrote you a letter but I made an error
I could fix it and make it better
If I make an error I can always make it better with my eraser
Eraser, eraser, eraser

Eraser, eraser, eraser
Eraser, eraser, eraser
Eraser, eraser, eraser

Erasure, erasure, erasure, erasure
Erasure, erasure, erasure, erasure

I Can Sing Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I can sing, I can sing, I can sing better
I can knit a scarf but you can't knit a sweater
When I'm underwater I couldn't be wetter
Never go swimmin' in a mohair sweater

I can dance, I can dance, I can dance faster
I tried to keep up but it was a disaster
One more move and I'm gonna be the master
So crank it up loud on the ghetto blaster

I can eat, I can eat, I can eat more
And when it's not fresh from the local store
There's a little town in Labrador
Where she sells seashells by the shoe store

I can speak, I can speak, I can speak quicker
Imagine I made a way to make everyone currently frowning snicker
And on the guitar he could be a little slicker
Jimmy always said I was a good flat picker

Louis Loon Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Dive down, dive down
Into the cool green water
Swim around, swim around
By the fish and otters

Louis Loon
Louis Loon

Flap your wings, flap your wings
You're picking up speed
Soon you'll spring, soon you'll spring
High above the trees

June the beaver
Below you'll leave her
Gnawing on sticks, gnawing on sticks
With another dam to fix

Louis Loon

She hears your song
Echoing over lakes and hills
Lonely and long
Sometimes it's high, sometimes with a trill

Wherever you are
You are admired from afar
But just around the bend
You can always call your friends, call your friends

Splash, splash, splash, splash
Come on in and land
In a flash, in a flash
You're under water again
Looking to see when you surface where you'll be

Won't you stay? Won't you stay?
Your friends want to play
Won't you stay? Won't you stay?
Your friends wanna play

Won't you stay? Won't you stay?
Your friends wanna play
Won't you stay? Won't you stay?
Your friends want to play

Won't you stay? Won't you stay?
Your friends wanna play
Won't you stay? Won't you stay?
Your friends wanna play

Canadian Snacktime Trilogy: Snacktime Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I wake up in the morning, I got to sleep at night
But a day without snack time that just isn't right
Oh snack time, oh snack time

How I love the vision of people everywhere
In harmony together and each one has their share
Oh at snack time, oh snack time

Snack time, snack time, talkin' 'bout snack time
Snack time, snack time, oh snack time

Oh snack time, oh snack time
Oh snack time

Canadian Snacktime Trilogy: Popcorn Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Mama put the popcorn kernels in the pot
She turned up the heat
now the pot is getting hot.
And then those popcorn kernels start to
pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,.... POPCORN!

Canadian Snacktime Trilogy: Vegetable Town Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

The houses are built with leafy lettuce.
The light posts are all rubbery asparagus, in Vegetable Town.
The roads are paved with sautéed onions.
Community hall is a hollow pumpkin, in Vegetable Town.
Won't you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
Won't you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
Where we can ride the zucchini subway,
or watch the carrot planes land on the runway.
In Vegetable Town. In Vegetable Town.
Would you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
Would you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?
In Vegetable town. In Vegetable Town.
Would you walk with me down to Vegetable Town?

Drawing Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

There's a blueberry pancake flying in the sky
I can see it, I can see it
And there's a castle in the cloud and it's floating on by
Can you see it? Can you see it?

With my imagination I can see it
With my pencil crayons I can draw it
On a piece of paper I can show it to you
I can show it to you

There's a purple hippopotamus riding on a bike
I can see it, I can see it
There's a spaceship over my house at night
I just know it, I just know it

With my imagination I can see it
With my pencil crayons I can draw it
On a piece of paper I can show it to you
I can show it to you

Draw, draw, drawing, na na na na na
Draw, draw, drawing, na na na na na
Na na na na na, na na na na na
Na na na na na

My imagination, my imagination
My pencil crayons, my imagination

Humungous Tree Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I'm gonna plant this seed, this little tiny seed,
and it is gonna grow into a giant tree.
A gigantic tree. A ginormous tree.
A humungous tree for all the world to see.

You've gotta love the trees,
they even help us breathe.
They give us oxygen.
They give us scenery.
When I see a healthy trunk it makes me want to jump.
But I feel the opposite when I see a stump.

Help me plant this seed, this little tiny seed.
And let us watch it grow into a giant tree.
One gigantic tree here for you and me.
For our children's children's children's children's children to see.

My Big Sister Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I like my big sister
But I don't wanna wear her coat
Maybe black, it may fit perfect
But you and I both know, it's a girls coat

Now I can handle some hand me downs
Shirts and sandals are out of bounds
Balls and games and such, I don't mind
But a coat, over the line

Allergies Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Ow, hi, do you have a cold?
Uh, no man, I just suffer from

Allergies, allergies
Allergies, allergies

Allergic to cats, allergic to bees
Allergic to dust, allergic to trees
Allergic to mold, allergic to weeds

My little brother is allergic to meat
My friends' mother is allergic to wheat
Allergic to meat?
Allergic to wheat?
Gotta be tricky finding something to eat

Allergies, allergies
Allergies, allergies

Allergic to dogs, allergic to frogs
Allergic to nuts, I hate the guts
Allergic to smoke, it makes me choke
Allergic to shrimp, I'll blow up like a blimp

I get all itchy, and I start to wheeze
Even if I see a slice of cheese
A slice of cheese? I stat to wheeze
Hang on fellas I'm about to sneeze
Aaa, aaa, aaa, achoo!

Allergies, allergies
Allergies, allergies

Allergic to dogs, allergic to frogs
Allergic to eggs, allergic to legs
Allergic to heads, allergic to beds
Allergic to bark, it makes me snark

Allergic to face, allergic to bass
Allergic to guitars, allergic to the stars
Allergic to you, allergic to me
Allergic to birds, allergic to bees

I Don't Like Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I can eat pork 'til the cows come home
And cheese like it's going out of style
I like just about every type of vegetable
I like raisins, and nuts, and seeds, and olives
And pickles, and fruit, and beef, and bread
But I don't like... salmon.

I've jumped from a p lane with a parachute
Scuba'd to the ocean floor
Driven super-fast in a racing car
I've bungee jumped, and zip lined too,
I've crossed rope bridges over raging rivers
But I don't like... those spinny rides

I can fly my very own aeroplane
And I've been to the top of mountains
I've been to the top of the CN Tower
I can work on a ladder, I can climb a tree
I can look out the window of a really tall building
But if I stand close to the edge of a railing,
or up on a roof or something I realize
I don't like... heights so much

What A Wild Tune Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves,
they were howling at the moon,
howling at the moon,
howling at the moon.
What a wild tune, they were howling at the moon.

Last night I heard the breeze,
last night I heard the breeze,
last night I heard the breeze it was singing through the trees.

Then I heard some frogs,
then I heard some frogs,
then I heard some frogs they were croaking on a logs.

There's music in the air,
there's music in the air,
there's music in the air,
and the air is everywhere.

Last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves,
last night I heard the wolves, they were howling at the moon.
Howling at the moon,
howling at the moon.
What a wild tune, they were howling at the moon.

Bad Day Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I'm having a bad day
There's nothing you can do or say
To help me through this bad day
I think I'll just stay in my room

They didn't need to say
That they didn't want to play
I could have guessed it anyway
And that's why I'm here in my room

Seems like I'm the only one
Who's not outside and having fun
I wish this day had never begun
I think I'll just stay in my room

Sometimes I wanna run and hide
Today I wanna stay inside
Tell my bike to take itself for a ride
I'm staying in today

See the toys lying on the floor
I don't want them anymore
I think I'll sell them back to the store
Or give them all away

It feels like I'm the only one
Who's not outside and having fun
I wish this day had never begun
I think I'll just stay in my room

I don't need hugs and I don't want food
I wanna stay here in this lonely mood
I don't care if people think I'm rude
I wish they would all go away

Dad comes in and tells me with a kiss
Everyone has days like this
Brought my dinner said that I was missed
I think I'll be okay

I know I'm not the only one
To stay inside and watch the fun
Thanks a lot that helped a ton
Tomorrow's gonna be a better day

Things Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

There are things that make me mad,
You are not one of them.

There are things that make me sad,
You are not one of them.

There are things that make me Dad,
You seem to be all of them.

Curious Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

If I climb a tree just to see what I see
Does that make me curious?
If I make a point of just cruising a joint
Would that make me curious?

And if it's profound this just lookin' around
Well, then gee whiz
Don't call me crazy, I've never been lazy
Curious it is

A touch of excess with a little finesse
It's simply luxurious
And if I confess to makin' this mess
Would that make you furious?

But after a while you'll be crackin' a smile
And that's when we'll see
If I may submit, you'll have to admit
You're curious like me

They say that curiosity was responsible
For the unfortunate demise of the cat
But with 8 more lives to investigate
What kind of a deal is that? Not bad

A furious sun can make for serious fun
So we won't let that worry us
'Cause the fun is outdone by a barrel of one
If that one's the furriest

If curious means that you trade your routines
For somethin' free
The freedom you feel's the whole point of the deal
So curious I'll be

Curiouser and curiouser sir
Curious
Curious like
Curious like me

A Word For That Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

There's a word for that
But I don't seem to know it
Sometimes I grow a mustache
Just so I don't have to show it

The word for that
That someone somewhere chose
For that little dented skin
Between my upper lip and nose

There's a word for that
What does it start with, the word for that?
I'd sound so smart if I only knew
The word for that, perhaps you do

The word you're looking for is philtrum

There's a word for that
It may come to me soon
It dangles down in my mouth
And is often in cartoons

The word for that
It seems like such a drag
To not know what to call
That little fleshy punching bag

There's a word for that
What does it start with, the word for that?
I'd sound so smart if I only knew
The word for that, perhaps you do

Do you mean uvula?

There's a word for that
It's on the tip of my tongue
Well, actually underneath it
And has been since I was young

The word for that
Although I wouldn't quote
It likely stops my tongue
From disappearing down my throat

There's a word for that
What does it start with, the word for that?
I'd sound so smart if I only knew
The word for that, perhaps you do

What does it start with, the word for that?
I'd sound so smart if I only knew
The word for that, perhaps you do

Are you nuts, it's frenulum

Wishing Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I wish I could speak with my dog
I wish I could speak with my dog
I wish I could speak with my dog
Cause right now it's just a monologue

I wish I could walk on a cloud
I wish I could walk on a cloud
I wish I could walk on a cloud
I sure wish could walkin' was aloud

I wish every wish would come true
I wish every wish would come true
I wish every wish would come true
Cause it sure feels good when they do

Crazy ABC's Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Hey Steve, hey Ed, that sounds nice, what is it?
Thank you, it's a, it's an alphabet song I'm working on
Oh great, a whole new alphabet, I just learned the old one

A is for aisle, B is for bdellium, C is for czar
And if you see him would you mind telling him?

Okay, hang on a second, yeah aisle, bdellium?
Yeah, aisle like a, like a theater, alright, okay and bdellium?
Bdellium, it's a gum like tree resin, it starts with a silent B
And then czar? Yeah, it's uh like a Russian czar

You know everybody knows apple, ball and cat
I wanted to get into some, you know some stranger words
Right, I see what you're doing

D is for djinn, E for Euphrates
F is for fohn, but not like when I call the ladies

I thought phone started with a P like a Ph
No, it's F O H N, it's a, it's a kind of wind
Yeah, I know what you mean by wind

G for gnarly, I for irk, H is for hour
J for jalapeA+os, good in either corn or flour
Tortillas, let us rhyme

K is for knick knack, L is for llama
Pramma, llama, ding, what's so strange about llama?
Llama, it starts with two L's, what's the second one for?
No idea, I know loser

M for mnemonic, N is for ndomo, O is for ouiga board
P for pneumonia, pterodactyl and psychosis, Q is for qat

Okay, Q qat? What? Yeah, it's uh Q A T, it's an evergreen shrub
It's a perfect scrabble word because it's a Q with no U
There's not many of those, you have too much time on your hands

R is for argyle , no it isn't
Okay, you're right, I couldn't find a good R word
S is for SzA?r, a lovely German river
T for tsunami, a wave that makes me quiver

U is for urn, but not like earning money
V for vraisemblance from French and therefore kind of funny

W for wren, wrinkly and who
X is for Xian, an ancient Chinese city, true
Ancient Chinese city, huh? My guitar player, some hotshot

Y is for yiperite, a very nasty gas
And zed's the final letter and by final I mean last

Okay, when you say zed for the benefit of our American friends
You really mean Z, right?
No, I mean zed, like, like Zed Zed Top, Zed Zed Top?

Yeah, you know the guys with the big long beards
Well, except the guy whose name is Beard, he has a mustache
I always thought that was interesting

You done with the alphabet?
No, extra letters I haven't heard of? I think so
This was a great help, I think
With the contribution you made to world literacy

Well, I'm just saying, kids I'm just saying
Think outside the box a little bit, box with an R
Yeah, well, no box with a B A L K S like a pitcher
Ah, as opposed to B A C H S

Right, think outside the box, get into some Rochmaninov
That's Rochmaninov with a W

Here Come The Geese Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Look up in the sky
They said on the radio station
They're up quite high
Flying in a V formation

Here come the geese
Here come the geese

Now they're on the lawns
The patios and ponds
On the sidewalks
On the rooftops

On the hillside
On the playground slide
In the shadows
The parking lots, the meadows

The fences and ledges
Benches and hedges
In the schoolyard
On the boulevard

In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Watch under your feet
They said on the radio station

Here come the geese
Flying in a V formation
Here come the geese
Flying in a V formation

Here come the geese
Flying in a V formation
Here come the geese
(Here come the geese)
Flying in a V formation

Here come the geese
(Here come the geese)
Flying in a V formation
Here come the geese
(Here come the geese)
Flying in a V formation

Here come the geese
(Here come the geese)
Flying in a V formation
Here come the geese
(Here come the geese)
Flying in a V formation

Flying in a V formation
Flying in a V formation
Flying in a V formation
Flying in a V formation
Flying in a V formation

Serendipity Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

So long ago, on a summer day
I put my best shirt on
I took you to the matinee
With money from mowing lawns
Money from mowing lawns

You worked down at the Dairy Queen
We hit it off from the start
Now there's a blizzard in between
Frost inside a heart

If I had a good reason, I would share
It with you
Then the coldest season came
Making room for something new
Good for you
Good for me
Call it serendipity

Walking on coals, just trying to get through
But summers don't last that long
All that is left here is the truth
Everything else is gone

Gone without a good reason for me to share
With you
When the coldest season came
Making room for something new
Good for you
Good for me
Call it serendipity

If I could only hit my stride
I'll make it to the other side
I don't wanna be roadkill
When there's half a cup to fill
To fill

Good for you (Call it serendipity)
Good for me (Serendipity)
Call it serendipity
Call it serendipity
Call it serendipity

Walking on coals, just trying to get through
Now summers don't last so long
All that is left here is the truth
Everything else is gone

Something You'll Never Find Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

You're looking for something
That you'll never find
You've got the questions
You've got the time
You've got the bruises
To show you've been blind
'Cause you're looking for something
That you'll never find

I'm hoping you find it
And someday you might
But not in an instant
And not overnight
And I am the one who's
Holding you tight
Hoping you find it
And someday you might

Could you be the one
Could you be the one who will find it
Staring at the sun as you're blinded
Could you be the one who will find
That it's fine if it's not in me

You're looking for something
That's not even there
You're knocking down tables
You're kicking in chairs
I know you're angry
You know I don't care
Looking for something
That's not even there

Make me an offer
That I can't refuse
Set up my options
Force me to choose
You've been abandoned
I've been abused
Set up my options
'Cause I can't refuse

Oh, could you be the one
Could you be the one who will find it
Staring at the sun as you're blinded
Could you be the one who will find
That it's fine if it's not in me

Over in Indiana
Wearing their red bandanas
The Indians eat bananas
Thinking they're full of Vitamin C

Looking for someone
That I'll never be
Some kind of bondage
To make you feel free
A Lover, a savior
Oh, that isn't me
Well you're looking for someone
That I'll never be

Could you be the one
Oh could you be the one who will find it
Staring at the sun as you're blinded
Could you be the one who will find
That it's fine if it's not in me

One And Only Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Hey, pass the ball
Why do you run it in circles?
Waves crash the wall
Soon enough all your hard work will fail

Wait, hold the phone
I don't know if I can take this
Leave me alone
I don't know if I can make this work

See, I know I'm lost and lonely
Please go slow; I'm one and only

I need to think
'Cause now I've got everyone wondering
Pass me a drink
Last, but not least, and my virtue's gone

Lend me a hand
I think I could walk if you help me
Please understand
If I could talk, I would tell you why

See, I know I'm lost and lonely
Please go slow; I'm one and only

Only one
All or none
My heart's done
Weighs a ton

Hold me a while
Tell me you'll never be leaving
I'll walk the mile
Seeing but not quite believing you

See, I know I'm lost and lonely
Please go slow; I'm one and only
See, I know I'm lost and lonely (See, I know I'm lost and lonely)
Please go slow; I'm one and only (Please go slow; I'm one and only)...

Angry People Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

That's the problem, dear, with angry people
They try to go it alone
Digging in and making cranky feeble pleas
That other angries disown
Angry people think a good solution
Is getting others involved
So they surround themselves with happy people
And watch their smiles dissolve

We just drag them down
We just drag them down
We just drag them down
Until they're just like us

Angry people get so sanctimonious
Telling us what to do
Hoping no one outs them all as phonies just cause
We are all phonies too
And those of us who once had wives and families
Understand what I mean
What was once a calm and peaceful refuge
Is overtaken by spleen

'Cause we just drag them down
We just drag them down
We just drag them down
Until they're just like us

I am the singer in the band
We're only trying to lend a hand
And though it's not what we had planned
We understand

That we just drag you down
We just drag you down
We just drag you down
Until you're just like us

In a square a thousand angry people
Are waving signs in the air (HEY!)
While a million other happy people
Are trying hard not to care (BACK OFF!)
You see, the happy people's biggest problem
Is they're never fearing the worst
While the rest of us will never sleep until
Your happy bubbles are burst

Yeah, we just drag them down
Didn't I just drag you down
Just watch me drag you down
Until you're just like us
Until you're just like us
Oh, until you're just like us
Until you're just like us

Down To Earth Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Some people are just all show
Well, I don't mind that if the show is worth watching
But it's all bark and no tree
What's more ironic than a hippie in Versace?
It's all peace and love and limousines
You got the right message, but the wrong intentions
How can you be touchy-feely when you've lost touch?
I think it's time we had a little intervention with you

Hey now, wake up
And lose the makeup
She makes you wanna know her
When you don't know what it's worth
Now you really wanna show her
How she's just so down to Earth (via satellite)

There's no better friends than the, the kind you pay
If they don't balance, great - then the door will keep revolving
It's a tight circle of the chosen few
Well, how'd you manage that with the recipe involving
Just a pinch of sweetness and a cup of angst?
Mix it all up - you're the all-purpose flour
Though it looks delicious, something smells bad
I don't think I'd last a half an hour with you

Hey now, wake up
And lose the makeup
She makes you wanna know her
When you don't know what it's worth
Now you really wanna show her
How she's just so down to Earth (via satellite)

What's it like to love you
When there's no one else above you
And no one gets to know you?
Well, who'll be there to show you (via satellite)?

It's like making love to a TV
It's kinda novel, but it's miles away from satisfying
Your hangers-on say it's a great deal
But what you're selling, there's no chance in hell that I'll be buying

Hey now, wake up
And lose the makeup
She makes you wanna know her
When you don't know what it's worth
Now you really wanna show her
How she's just so down to Earth
She makes you wanna know her
When you don't know what it's worth
Now you really wanna show her
How she's just so down to Earth (via satellite)

Beautiful Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

What if you were not just for show?
What if you were not good to go?
What if you were simply not so
Beautiful

What if you were not thin and tall?
What if you were done with it all?
What if you were not baby-doll
Beautiful

(Beautiful)
Isn't she?
(Beautiful)
Paid to be
(Beautiful)
When I see
(Beautiful)
Shame on me

Hoping that it's deeper than skin
Open to the beauty within
Scoping out the room's not a sin
Beautiful

Beautiful
And not much else
Not much else going on
No matter 'cause no one's as

(Beautiful)
Everytime she walks in the room their heads all turn to find her
(Beautiful)
Everything she says I simply say I never mind.*
(Beautiful)
Everyone she sees seems to ignore the whole experience.
(Beautiful)
Everytime she sees me checking her appearance

What if one day I wake up blind?
Would I go on losing my mind?
Groping in the dark just to find
Beautiful

Beauty disappears
Boredom perserveres

(Beautiful)
Isn't she?
(Beautiful)
Paid to be
(Beautiful)
When I see
(Beautiful)
Shame on me

(Beautiful) Isn't she?
Everytime she walks in the room their heads all turn to find her
(Beautiful) Paid to be
Everything she says I simply say I never mind.
(Beautiful) When I see
Everyone she sees seems to ignore the whole experience.
(Beautiful)
Shame on me

Running Out Of Ink Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I stopped into a club
I thought I'd see a show
Everyone was there
At least everyone I know
Their knickers in a knot
Their hands upon their heart
The best they'd ever seen
The greatest work of art
I wished that it was me....

It's bleaker than you think
I'm running out of ink
Give a guy a break
This is what it takes
To drive a man to drink

A party at a friend's
Toronto's coolest scene
I thought I'd bring a tape
To show them where I'd been
And listen for a while
The lyrics made them smile
They said that it was fine
Although it's not the style
I said it wasn't me

Once upon a time
I couldn't get enough
Until I made it big
And that's when it got rough
Dissapointed now
Perhaps a bit surprised
To look them in the face
And see it in their eyes
They wish it wasn't me

It's bleaker than you think
I'm running out of ink
Give a guy a break
This is what it takes
To drive a man to drink

I used to hold you close
You used to tell me things
You never told a soul
Until you heard me sing
The details of your life
Condensed into a song
The neighbor and his wife
Work out and sing along
And you can't look at me

It's bleaker than you think
I'm running out of ink
Give a guy a break
This is what it takes
To drive a man to drink

Could song be an alibi
A lyric replacement for falling in love
But now that the well is dry
I can't understand what I've been singing of...

Do you know what it is to love?
To really love?
To really love....
Do I?

I cycled by your house
I saw you on the lawn
I see you all the time
Now that you are gone
I tried to call your name
But something made me stop
I call you once a day
Until you call the cops
And told them it was me

I filled a plastic bag
with everything I wrote
I threw it off a bridge
and thought that it would float.
The water made it sink
the bag was bleeding ink.
I wished that I could swim
I wished that I could drink
I wished that it was me.

It's bleaker than you think
I'm running out of ink
Give a guy a break
This is what it takes
To drive a man to drink
I'm running out of ink
Give a guy a break
This is what it takes
To drive a man to drink
To drive a man to drink
To drive a man to drink

Half A Heart Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Drunk on wine, I'm amazing
Bitter Pill; it's my raising
News at five and at midnight
Caught on tape; serves me right

The crowd around me starts to grow
I can feel the undertow

Anyone with a half a heart would help me out
Before they ever let the other half find out
But if they could see how far I've let you down
Anyone with half a heart would let me drown

Flashing lights couldn't warn her
Paint myself in a corner
Bracing now for the impact
Losing hope, keeping track

Standing on a crumbling wall
Tethered to a cannonball

Anyone with half a heart would help me out
Before they ever let the other half find out
But if they could see how high I've built this wall
Anyone with half a heart would let me fall

In the space between sleep and sleeplessness
We redress all our wounds
If we replace all this hopeless hopelessness
Then we could rest

Anyone with half a heart would let me drown
Anyone with half a heart would pull me down
Anyone with half a heart would let me fall
Anyone with half a heart wouldn't care at all

Anyone with half a heart would help me out
Before they ever let the other half find out
But if they could see how far I've let you down
Anyone with half a heart would let me drown

Maybe Not Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Pretty soon you will be wanting me
To go.
And I will only be the enemy
I know.
Pretty soon you will be needing me
To leave.
But know that you and I will always be
Naive.

Maybe you'll forgive the things that I forgot.
Maybe you're forgetting all the times we fought.
Maybe we should divvy up the things we bought.
But maybe not.

Why don't we lay down on the kitchen floor
All that we say we had with us before?
We'll find our way to what we're looking for
By separating what is mine from yours.

Pretty soon I'll be the one you hold
At bay.
And then forever I'll be good as gold lamé.
I know your heart cannot be bought or sold
For much.
donder maar op, consider yourself told
In Dutch.

And we can argue 'till our throats are sore
About how far you take a metaphor.
You always deign to see the glass half filled
And now it seems to me the half glass spilled.

Maybe you'll forgive the things that I forgot.
Maybe you're forgetting all the times we fought.
Maybe we should divvy up the things we bought.
But maybe

Maybe you'll forgive the things that I forgot.
Maybe you're forgetting all the times we fought.
Maybe we should divvy up the things we bought.
But maybe not.
Maybe not.
Maybe not

I Can I Will I Do Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Friend, this shouldn't be the way things end
But then, a break is just around the bend.
And when you tell me as I leave
You're scared you'll never see my face again
Well, I'm not sure it's the truth

You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
But I can and I will and I do

You write - I read your letters every night
All right, I skim them just to be polite.
I fight embarrassment and shame
The mention of your name makes me turn white
But guilt still makes me refrain

You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
But I can and I will and I do

I imagine you think I don't think of you
You know you couldn't be more wrong
If good intentions paved the road that gets me through
Then I've got a six-lane highway
And I intend to someday
Do all the things I say I can and I will and I do

Hey - it's hard for me to go away
Okay, I know it's not adult
But it's just as difficult for me to stay
And anyway you say

You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you
You don't think I can love you love you love you love you

I can and I will and I do
I can and I will and I do

Fun & Games Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

We sent in the army
They sounded alarms we
Saw it coming from a mile away.
We kept it off radar
Because we had to say our
Intentions were to save the day.

Why did you fail to see?

It was a gag
It was all for a laugh
And they were shocked and they were awed
and they were blown in half

Fun and games
We're just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun
Would be a powderkeg

We kept it all long-range
and made a regime change
You'd have thought it would have been a gas
But when it got ugly
We sat around smugly
Because you bought our little joke en masse
Don't look at me that way

It was a gag
It was all for a laugh
We knew your sons and daughters
Would be blown in half

Fun and games
We're just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun
Would be a powderkeg

Put a smile on
We're the ones that you selected
Leave that dial son
Because we just got re-elected
In a while our
Bill of rights will be rejected

and all the blame will be deflected
the forests will be unprotected
the nation's poor will be neglected
creation myth is resurrected
a new salute is genuflected
a gallup poll will be respected
gallows pole will be erected
all this will go undetected

While you all slumbered
We sat and crunched numbers
Of all the causalities we could afford
There's no need to draft them
You could hear us laugh then
The poor and black all need the room and board
Did I say that out loud?

It was a gag
It was all for a laugh
And now our very nation has been blown in half

Fun and games
We're just pulling legs
We knew this barrel of fun
Would be a powderkeg

Oh yeah....

The New Sad Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Everybody knows that happy is the new sad
So I am gonna go and imitate my old dad
And never crack a smile again.

Everybody knows that as we all get older
The will is first to go and so upon my shoulder
The bluebird shall not sing again.

Everybody knows that as our hair gets greyer
We strike a bended pose and say a little prayer
To never feel this way again.

Everybody knows it's never getting better
Everything must go and you will have to let her
And never see her face again.

Everybody's youth is only what they make it
Longer in the tooth, so why do people fake it?
We'll never get it back again.

I know it hurts
Noone wants to die.
Goodbye.
Goodbye.

Goodbye.
Goodbye

Quality Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Just show me the venue
When I'm the menu
It's personalized
The life of the party
I'm like Billy Barty
But regular-sized
I guess I should explain
Your guests will go insane
For me

'Cause I'm serving up quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, biology
Enhanced with high technology

Over in England
Everything bent
But I'm satisfied
I hung with the stars there
You know they drive cars there
On the other side
They barely noticed me
You said you'd go with me
Always

'Cause I'm serving up quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, biology
Inspired some Greek mythology

It's all true (cross my heart and hope to die)
I swear to you (stick a needle in your eye)
And if you've been misled
May some lightning strike me dead

Back Japan, they
Did not understand, they
Sent me back here
But look at them now, they're
Rubbing my cow, there
And feeding it beer
I may go back someday
They'll have a huge buffet
For me

'Cause I'm serving up quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, mirology
Is studied in theology

It's quality
It can't be beat
If you're not down
Vote with your feet
My quality, biology
Enhanced with high technology

Another Spin Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I had time to kill
One day in Alaska
I walked around until
I found the arts and crafts shop
I bought you a card
I don't know where to send it
I wrote it from the heart
I'm not sure how to end it

I wonder--where have you been?
Will I see you again
I give the globe another spin
All this time I'm wonderin'
Give the globe another spin
Are you in
Berlin?

Sweet potato pie
Is what your mom would always make
Your father smoked a pipe
My hand crushed in his handshake
They say you took a job
Spying for the army
And had to relocate
With a new identity

I wonder--where have you been?
Will I see you again?
I give the globe another spin
All this time I'm wonderin'
Give the globe another spin

Are you in (are you in)
Afghanistan?

Are you in...

Adrift Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Ever since we said our goodbyes
The onion rings, the phone makes me cry
Something isn't right
Like the Deep Blue without the Great White

In the morning open your eyes
The waterfalls, the fire flies
You're an abacus
And my heart was counting on us

Your heart's got a heavy load
There's still a long way to go
Keep your eyes on the road

Crescent moon sings me to sleep
The birches bark, the willows weep
But I lie awake
I'm adrift without a snowflake

Your heart's got a heavy load
There's still a long way to go
Keep your eyes on the road

Your heart's got a heavy load
There's still a long way to go
Keep your eyes on the road

Bank Job Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

It was an upset in two minutes flat
We were back on the freeway, foot to the mat
I can't understand it; we had it down pat
It's very upsetting, could we leave it at that?
We all had positions; we each had a role
We'd over-rehearsed it; we had full control
They can't teach you acting, it's there in your soul
It's the same with a bank job, and each thing we stole

So I don't need attitude
Cause you knew just what to do
We all did our best now
We all need to rest now
Leave me alone
Wait by the phone

I was the driver; you ran the show
You had the last word, the go or no go
I knew every laneway in Ontario
But it's not what you're sure of, it's what you don't know
It should have been filled with the usual ones
Throwing their cash into mutual funds
We all had our ski masks and sawed-off shotguns
But how do you plan for a bank full of nuns?

Well, I guess we panicked - we all have taboos
And they were like zebras; they had us confused
We should be in condos with oceanfront views
Instead we're most-wanted on the six o'clock news

So I don't need attitude
Cause you knew just what to do
We all did our best now
We all need to rest now
Leave me alone
And wait by the phone

Inside the police car you tried to explain
your crisis of conscience; the voice in your brain
And now that the whole thing has gone down the drain
I think we all know who should shoulder the blame
Cause you made a choice there, almost sublime
I'm all for compassion, just not on my dime
You looked like an amateur, and that's the real crime
So I'll take a walk now, and you do the time

And I don't need attitude
Cause you knew just what to do
We all did our best now
We all need to rest now
Leave me alone
There's no need to phone

We all did our best now
We all need to rest now
Leave me alone
We all did our best now
We all need to rest now
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

Sound Of Your Voice Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

The moon is full but there is an incompleteness
The days are beautiful but I feel a bitter sweetness
If I had a wish, or even a choice
I'd wake up to the sound of your voice
How I miss waking up to the sound of your voice

I let you down and fell right off of your good list
I hope each day you'll find peace and forgiveness
The alarm clock rings, What a lonely noise
And I long for the sound of your voice
Oh, how I miss waking up to the sound of your voice

Take it from me: there's not much to see
In this void

The saying goes there will be other dances (don't give up)
This little song is about second chances
Just say the word and I will rejoice
And wake up to the sound of your voice
Oh, how I miss waking up to the sound
To the sound (sound)
To the sound (to the sound)
To the sound
Waking up to the sound of your voice

Take it from me: there's not much to see
In this void

Easy Lyrics – Barenaked Ladiesfores

What's a boy to do
When you tell your tale
And, it never fails
I just end up feeling bad for you

With your hang-dog eyes
You can bring me down
Now I'm wrapped around your whole hand
Stop looking so surprised

You make it easy (easy)
You make it easy (easy)

I've been burned before
You're not fooling me
There's no mystery
You've forgotten what you're hiding for

Call it self-defence
You can obfuscate
And manipulate
But it's only at your own expense

You make it easy (easy)
You make it easy (easy)
You make it easy (easy)
You make it easy (easy)

Easy to be with you
Easy to obey
Easy to forgive you at the end of the day
Easy now to judge you
Easy to betray
Easy to adore you, though you want to run away

It's easy

Look what you have done
I can do the same
Two can play this game
You'll no longer be the only one

You make it easy (easy)
You make it easy (easy)
You make it easy (easy)
Easy (easy)

Home Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Side of the road, I stopped and
Picked up the pieces of your car
You were just standing, speechless
Knowing you'd never travel far

That's what you do when someone's given up on you
And that's when I knew that I was giving up and giving in
That's when I knew where I was
That's when I knew that I was home

Stuck in the middle of the road
For better or worse, we compromise
You may have won my hand, dear
But it was the consolation prize

That's when I knew that I was running out on you
That's what you do when time is running out and running down
That's when I knew where I was
That's when I knew that I was home

Where does the heart reside
If not where I lay my head?
I could run but I'm petrified
And choose this instead
Again and again

End of the road I'm running
And look back to survey where I'd been
Someday I'll write and ask you
If you could imagine what I'd seen

How could you think that I could turn my back on you?
How did you think this would be turning out? And turning 'round
What could I do but you?
What could I do to call this home?

That's when I knew where I was
That's when I knew that I was home

Bull In A China Shop Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I'm a kid in a candy store
I'm a bull in a china shop
I'm a tired old metaphor
For everything you can't afford
And everything you can't afford to be

I'm a public embarrassment
I'm a bottle of diet poison
I'm a walking advertisement
For everything I never meant
And everything I never meant to be

I can't hear a thing
Cause I've stopped listening

I'm the reason I don't go out
I'm afraid I might tell me something
I'm the shadow of every doubt
I'm the product this song's about
I'm the product this song's about to be

I can't hear a thing
Cause I've stopped listening
I can't hear a thing
Cause I've stopped listening

Every morning
Since I was born
It's been hard to look in the mirror
And see my face for the horns

All the fun that the law allows
All the fun but with half the meaning
Come on over, I'll show you how
If you lived here you'd be home by now
If you still lived here you'd be home now with me

I can't hear a thing
Cause I've stopped listening
I can't hear a thing
Cause I've stopped listening

Everything Had Changed Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

On the path of life, I wish you well
Divergent journeys, but we will meet again in Hell
I kept my head down and moved on
Til every friend I'd known was gone

Then, one day, I was not alone
Everything had changed, everything was strange
Everything had changed, everything was strange

When in rags and when in wealth
A solemn promise never to give too much of myself
Despite the hopeful things I've said
I've lived my life inside my head

Then, one day, I was not alone
Everything had changed, everything was strange
Everything had changed, everything was strange

I hold my breath and count to ten
I hate it now; hated it then
I've seen it all before
A failure and a bore
But that's what friends are for

So it seems I must have won
As I survey the ashes of the damage that I've done
Everyone I've ever known
Is just as closed off and alone

Then, one day, I was not alone
Everything had changed, everything was strange
Everything had changed, everything was strange
Everything had changed, everything was strange
Everything had changed, everything

Peterborough And The Kawarthas Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Peterborough and the Kawarthas
(Creeggan)
I left you in the rain
Peterborough and the Kawarthas
Your reflection in the pane
Peterborough and the Kawarthas

Apples, pears, prunes and plums
His favourite food, I told his mom
Wait for him at the end of the slide
When he climbs the stairs, stay by his side

I heard you got some rain
Peterborough and the Kawarthas
Looks like we're in for the same
Peterborough and the Kawarthas

I'm going early, won't wave goodbye
Tell him I love him; look him in the eye
I've learned how to mourn; I've learned how to miss
Let me disappear with this kiss

Tuesday: A mix of sun and cloud with a 40% chance of showers early in the morning; then sunny.
Winds West 20 kilometers per hour, gusting to 40. High of 22. UV index 50; moderate.

Bird, book, and basketball
Squirrel, dog, and learning how to crawl
I found my heart when he came
Let my leaving leave like rain

I watched you from the train
Peterborough and the Kawarthas
When I come back I'll see you again
Peterborough and the Kawarthas

I listen for you every morning
I listen for you every morning
I listen for you every morning
I listen for you every morning

Maybe You're Right Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

It was often talked about
It was often raised
But nothing was ever done about it
To hear the way they talked about it
Noone could be saved
But nothing was ever done about it

Shall I take back everything I've ever said
And live my whole life in silence instead?

It was oversimplified
It was underthought
And nothing was ever done to stop it
Everything was fortified by
All the lies we bought
And nothing was ever done to stop it

Shall I take back everything I've ever said
And live my whole life in silence instead?

Shall I take back everything I've ever said
(Shall I take back all my attacks? All of my accusations?)
And live my whole life in silence instead?
(All my mistrust - we never discussed anyone's reservations)

There was a time
When a crime was a crime
Now I think I'm losing my mind
Or taking it all too hard
Taking it all too hard
Taking it all too hard

Shall I take back all my attacks? All of my accusations?
All my mistrust - we never discussed anyone's reservations

Shall I take back everything I've ever said
(Shall I take back all my attacks? All of my accusations?)
And live my whole life in silence instead?
(All my mistrust - we never discussed anyone's reservations)

Shall I take back everything I've ever said
(Shall I take back all my attacks? All of my accusations?)
And live my whole life in silence instead?
(All my mistrust - we never discussed anyone's reservations)

Maybe you're right
Maybe you're right
Maybe you're right
But I don't think so
Maybe you're right
Maybe you're right
Maybe you're right
But I don't think so

Take It Back Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

It's hard enough to notice
Harder still to react
Just a stone's throw from the centre of our attention
We all fade to black

Save me from a villainous imagination
Deliver me from my friends
If I said something to make you mad
I will take it back

It's hard enough to stomach
But try to look away
Is this a news report or a trailer for a motion picture?
It all fades to grey

Save me from a villainous imagination
Deliver me from my friends
If I said something to make you mad
I will take it back

Long lines and warning signs
Think of all the lives saved by plastic knives
It's naive, but make-believe
We will never lose if we remove our shoes

It's hard to keep your mouth shut
Harder still to make noise
But we can't have the perfect 20/20 hindsight
That our fate enjoys

So save me from a villainous imagination
Deliver me from my friends
And if I said something to make you mad
I will take it back
I will take it back

Vanishing Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

A rabbit and a top hat, a handkerchief and ring
With the wave of a wand he'll pull your heartstrings

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one vanishing

Isn't that the necklace he found behind your ear?
He's floating upside-down below a chandelier
Wishing he had the power to make you reappear

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one vanishing

All the words of love he longs for you to hear
He whispers them each night into a lion's ear
Under the stage lights at the Bellagio
He has got your card but you had to fly home

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one vanishing

You are vanishing
You are vanishing
You are vanishing
You are vanishing

He's a magician
Hoping, wishing
And you're the one
You're the one
You're the one vanishing

You are vanishing
You are vanishing
You are vanishing (a rabbit and a top hat, a handkerchief and ring)
You are vanishing (the wave of the wand)

Rule The World With Love Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

It couldn't happen to a better man
It wouldn't happen with a better plan
While we were napping someone else began
To rule the world with love

It didn't happen to us overnight
Just cause it happened doesn't mean it's right
To our embarrassment we lost the fight
To rule the world with love

Hearts are won, empires fall
In love with love
Love will conquer all for one
One for all is fair in love and war
Love and war are one

It couldn't happen to a nicer guy
You shouldn't ever have to question why
With just the power of suggestion I
Could rule the world with love

I need to love you with an iron fist
I need to love you with a secret list
I need to love you 'til you don't exist
And rule the world with love

Love
Love
Love as defined by who?

Hearts are won, empires fall
In love with love
Love will conquer all for one
One for all is fair in love and war
Love and war are one

How could it happen when we couldn't lose?
And now we're slapping makeup on the bruise
Though it was handed to us, we refused
To rule the world with love

Love
Love
Love as defined by God

Hearts are won, empires fall
In love with love
Love will conquer all for one
One for all is fair in love and war
Love and war are one

Wind It Up Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Stop, drop and roll and I will tell you where I'm coming from
You've done a lot of yelling pointed at my eardrum
I'll offer all of me that you can lay your eyes on
I'll get right back to you once I get my disguise on

Hearts on fire, you'll learn
End up with heartburn

Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind it up

I can't believe that you'd believe that I would fake it
Wait - unless you count the things I said when we were naked
Run, run away from everything we'd ever hoped for
I can't believe that this is what people elope for

Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your mobile phone

Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind it up

If you are leaving then I wish you luck
I hope someone can make your heart warm
I was a baby when I learned to suck
But you have raised it to an art form

Yes I'm out of line
But you're out of your mind

Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind me up, my dear
Had it up to here
Wind it up

Jingle Bells Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
One-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
One-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, Batman smells,
Robin laid an egg
Batmobile lost its wheel
And Joker got away

A day or two ago,
I thought I'd take a ride,
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank;
Misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank,
And there we got upsot.

Chorus
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Now the ground is white
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay
Two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you'll take the lead.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

What fun it is to love and sing
What fun it is to love and sing
What fun it is to love and sing
Ha ha ha
What fun it is to love and sing
Singin' song tonight

Green Christmas Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

The streets are filled with Christmas cheer
At least it's only once a year
Perfect parcels tied with perfect bows,
And carols ringing in my ear

Bundled up against the cold
Lines wherever gifts are sold
Each shop window displays a Christmas scene
For everybody young and old

Icicles on eavesdrops and tinsel on the tree,
But it's a green Christmas for me

Couples skating on the pond (couples skating the pond)
Making angels on the lawn (makin' angels on the lawn)
Five red mittens drying on the rack
And needles shedding tannenbaum

Red bows on the railings and snowflakes on the ground,
But it's a green Christmas in this town

Green, cause of everything I miss
All this mistletoe, no kiss
And with every Christmas wish
There would be no greater gift
Than to have this envy lift

Carolers are at my door (Fa la la la) [etc..]
Don't wanna hear them anymore
Stockings on the mantle
The snow's here everyday
But it's a green Christmas anyway

Red nose on the reindeer and tinsel on the tree
But it's a green Christmas for me

I Saw Three Ships Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day in the morning.
And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning.
Let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day in the morning!

I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Hanukkah Blessings Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

How Lucky are we that we have lights so we can see
Although the day is done
What a miracle that a spark lifts these candles out of the dark
Every evening, one by one
Until the end of hanukkah, of hanukkah.

With the jingle bells and the toys
And the TV shows and noise
It's easy to forget
At the end of the day
Our whole family will say
These words for Hanukkah

Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha'olam, asher kid'shanu
B'mitz'votav v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Hanukkah.

Light the candles for Hanukkah, for Hanukkah
We remember how Maccabees
Fought so all of us could be free
And so we celebrate on this festival of the lights
There's a joyful time every night
But we illuminate the candles of Hanukkah, of Hanukkah

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olam she'asa niseem
La'avoteinu bayamim haheim baz'man hazeh.

Hanukkah...
Hanukkah...

Elf's Lament Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies (feat. Michael Buble)

I'm a man of reason, and they say "'Tis the season to be jolly"
But it's folly when you volley for position

Never in existence has there been such a resistance
To ideas meant to free us
If you could see us, then you'd listen

Toiling through the ages, making toys on garnished wages
There's no union
We're only through when we outdo the competition

I make toys, but I've got aspirations
Make some noise
Use your imagination
Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for
There's a list for who's been
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

A full indentured servitude can reflect on one's attitude
But that silly red hat just makes the fat man look outrageous

Absurd though it may seem, you know, I've heard there's even been illegal doping
And though we're coping, I just hope it's not contagious

You try to start a movement, and you think you see improvement
But when thrown into the moment, we just don't seem so courageous

I make toys, but I've got aspirations
Make some noise
Use your imagination
Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for
There's a list for who's been
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

You look at yourself
You're an elf
And the shelf is just filled with disappointing memories
Trends come and go, and your friends wanna know why you aren't just happy making crappy little gizmos
Every kid knows they'll just throw this stuff away

We're used to repetition, so we drew up a petition
We, the undersigned, feel undermined
Let's redefine "employment"

We know that we've got leverage, so we'll hand the fat man a beverage
And sit back while we attack the utter lack of our enjoyment

It may be tough to swallow, but our threats are far from hollow
He may thunder, but if he blunders, he may wonder where the toys went

I make toys, but I've got aspirations
Make some noise
Use your imagination
Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for
There's a list for who's been
Naughty or nice, but consider the price
Naughty or nice, but consider the price
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

Snowman Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit in
To and fro, people go
I stand and grin
Way to go, even though
I can't begin
Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit in

Ever cold, love untold
I don't belong
Have and hold, so untold
I think they're wrong
Heart of gold, grownin' old
Just like the song
Ever cold, love untold
I don't belong

Button eyes, lullabys,
I melt away
Criticized, compromised
White turns to grey
I'm paralyzed, otherwise
I'd leave today
Button eyes, lullabys,
I melt away

Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit in
Ever cold, love untold
I don't fit in
Button eyes, lullabys,
I don't fit in
Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit in

Do They Know It's Christmas? Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

It's Christmastime; there's no need to be afraid
At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime
But say a prayer and pray for the other ones
At Christmastime

It's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
And the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
There won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or river flows
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Here's to you, raise a glass for ev'ryone
Here's to them, underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again

Hanukkah O Hanukkah Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Oh Hanukkah, Oh, Hanukkah
Come light the menorah
Let's have a party
We'll all dance the hora
Gather round the table, we'll give you a treat
Sevivon to play with latkes to eat

And while we are playing
The candles are burning low
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago

God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman / We Three Kings Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies (feat. Sarah McLachlan)

God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
Remember Christ our Saviour
Was born upon this day;
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray.

[Chorus]
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy!

From God our heavenly Father
This blessed angel came;
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same;
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name.

[Chorus]
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy!

O, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a king on Bethlehem's plain;
Gold I bring to crown Him again;
King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign.

[Chorus]
O, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and sacrifice,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Worshipping God most high.

O, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

God rest ye merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay
God rest ye merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay
God rest ye merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay

Footprints Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

I followed footprints in the snow,
Never knowing if I was right behind you,
Looking down no one would know,
I wasn't walking hand in hand beside you.

For your footprints lead the way,
To a hearth where hearts we made surround you,
You're awash in all its glow,
And I'm still standing in the snow.

I stood and watched the lights go out,
While the snowflakes settled all around me,
And though it filled my heart with doubt,
Couldn't move and this is where you found me.

As our footprints disappear,
Snow erasing how I came to be here,
I've got nowhere else to go,
Now you're standing in the snow.

Look for understanding in the snow,
You look just outstanding in the snow,
Standing in the snow.

[Interlude]

Now it's almost Christmas Eve,
And I'm surrounded with the sound of laughter,
To give is better than to deceive,
For I received a happy ever after.

You might have left me in the cold,
A fitting ending for the fool that I was,
But you'd be cuddled up alone,
And I'd still be standing in the snow.

Christmastime (Oh Yeah) Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Now that all the snow has fallen
It's crunching in below my feet
And all the Christmas lights are shining
On houses up and down my street
And I can see the happy families inside
If only for a moment, it's Christmas time

I think I see the children down the street
Here they come caroling
Now we can hear them, they sing "Oh yeah"

Mr. Johnson bought a Christmas tree
He set it up with his family
They're opening their presents big and small
Mr. Johnson got a big, brown, bowling ball
And Sally got a pair of brand new skates
And Jimmy got a box of frosty flakes
He knows that there's a special little prize inside
What a happy moment, it's Christmas time

The carolers are standing in line
They sing, "Oh yeah"
Oh yeah

Christmas Pics Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Turkey is done, reviews are mixed,
When's Mom gonna get that hearing aid fixed?
Hold still, wait for the click,
You're in this year's Christmas Pics

Brother, we don't agree
About the government and where to put the tree,
Hold still, wait for the click,
We're in this year's Christmas Pics.

Flashbulbs and wine,
And hold that smile,
Everyone's here, flown for miles,
Looks like you're still the test and we're looking our best

Tears rollin' down my nephew's face,
Santa's house can be a scary place,
Hold still... wait for it,
Hold still, wait for the click,
We're in this year's Christmas,
This year's Christmas,
This year's Christmas Pics.

I Have A Little Dreidel Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Well
I have a little dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready
Then, dreidel I shall play.

Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready
Then, dreidel I will play.

It has a lovely body
With legs so short and thin
And when it gets all tired
It drops and I will win.

Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready
Then, dreidel I will play.

My dreidel is so playful
It loves to dance and spin
A happy game of dreidel
Come play now, let's begin.

Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready
Then, dreidel I will play.

Wonderful Christmastime Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Jesus
Happy birthday to you

Auld Lang Syne Lyrics – Barenaked Ladies

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.

And here's the hand, my trusty friend
And gives a hand of thine
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.
