Ben Folds Five



"Hi Mr. Ben Folds, please call Lisa Isovent. I know you've been avoiding or something,

but, you know, you did something - it's different from our oral agreement. And you know,

I could do something with it 'cause I have all the papers you signed, and the letter too.

So, please get back to me, and I don't like whatever people do differently from what we

agreed, and that's not the right way for any business."


Well I was walking down the wrong side of the street

Just to show you all what I don't like

And my mama put my shoes on the wrong feet

A dolled-up body with an outpaced mind


Hold up traffic, they cut their hair weird

When I was young I never carried on like that

You in the back there, won't you stand up?

Tell the rest of the world what you're laughing at


'Cause you don't know what you can get away with

And you just laugh 'cause you're clueless


So daddy crawls down from his big riding lawnmower

Starts rambling 'bout the good old days

Says he had to walk five miles to school

In the snow and it was uphill both ways


Every night, yeah, in the parking lot

Breaking glass puts a smile on their faces

Every year now off to college

Another fashion punk takes their places


Old man, don't you dig the gap between me and you?

Agash from ear to ear and you don't hear what I do

No you don't


I was walking down the wrong side of the street

A clueless geezer in a big, bright Pacer

And my mama put my shoes on the wrong feet

He oughtta know by now he's wasting his time
