Thank God for Girls




Weezer's Thank God for Girls:

[Verse 1]
The girl in the pastry shop with the net in her hair
Is making a cannoli for you to take on your hiking trip
In the woods with your bros that you’ve known since second grade
And you may encounter dragons or ruffians and be called upon
To employ your testosterone
In a battle for supremacy and access to females glued to the TV
And even if you are victorious you may receive many cuts, bruises, and scrapes
And you will require band aids and antiseptic ointments
And tender loving kisses on your stab wounds and when you come home
She will be there waiting for you with a fire in her eyes
And a big fat cannoli to shove in your mouth
And that's why you

[Chorus]
Thank God for girls
Holla Jesu Christe
From Tennessee to LA
Thank God for girls
On your reckoning day
You better bow down and pray

[Post-Chorus]
She’s so big
She’s so strong
She’s so energetic in her sweaty overalls
Thank God for girls

[Verse 2]
I'm so glad I got a girl to think of even though she isn't mine
I think about her all the day and all the night it's enough to know that she's alive
She says I give her sweaty palms she almost had a heart attack
The truth is that I’m just as scared I don’t know how to act
I wish that I could get to know her better
But meeting up in real life would cause the illusion to shatter
I carved her name into all the trees
Sang a song down on one knee
Looking at the underwear page of the Sears catalog like when I was 14
I’m levitating like a magnet turned the wrong way around
I’m like an Indian Fakir tryna’ meditate on a bed of nails with my pants pulled down

[Chorus]
Thank God for girls
Holla Jesu Christe
From Tennessee to LA
Thank God for girls
On your reckoning day
You better bow down and pray

[Post-Chorus]
She’s so big
She’s so strong
She’s so energetic in her sweaty overalls
Thank God for girls

[Bridge]
God took a rib from Adam, ground it up in a centrifuge machine
Mixed it with cardamom and cloves, microwaved it on the popcorn setting
While Adam was like “that really hurts”
Going off into the tundra, so pissed at God
And he started lighting minor forest fires, stealing osprey eggs
Messing with the bees who were trying to pollinate the echinacea
Until God said, “Ima smite you with loneliness
And break your heart in two”
And Adam wept and wailed, tearing out his hair, falling on his knees
Looked to the sky and said
“Thank God”




Any thoughts?

I am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar. I am the son and heir of nothing in particular.

You shut your mouth. How can you say I go about things the wrong way? I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does.

I really like the lyrics.

I dunno what to think. I'm trying to put my finger on who they sound like.

It's no El Scorcho.

You can tell every time they lean away
When you just want to talk
You couldn't buy their interest now

Thank god for mods ...

ok, guys, go ahead, do your business, delete this thing.

- I now issue the call, are you ready to fight
Fight all together as one for the right to be free once again
Tonight we will win

I can see by the look that you have in your eyes
You came here for metal, to fight and to die
Defenders of Steel now we are home

Fight for the kingdom bound for glory
Armed with a heart of steel
I swear by the Brothers who stand before me
To no man shall I kneel
Their blood is upon my steel

A cannoli and kisses... sounds like heaven.

Verse 2 seems depressingly real for the situation.

I don't think I'll be thanking God anytime soon for my loneliness.

Here's to life, the vice
The great herald of misery
In this cup, spiritus frumenti
For this is the nectar of the spirit

Yeah... they could've done better... but it's Weezer. They're awesome regardless.

Yeah, it's very funny/odd. Almost like an echo of this place.

No, but it's very Beverly Hills or Troublemaker

On the 7th day God said, "Let there be heavenly music." And it was so. God called it "Trance and House Music" And God was pleased with what he heard and saw that it was good.

Good song though, even more that it strikes me so.

I mean, it's not so much that I dislike weird lyrics. these are just cringe worthy, though.

Haha, guess you need to be a Weezer fan to get into it.
