Another Postcard

Album: Everything To Everyone (2003)
Charted: 82

Songfacts®:

  • Steven Page and Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies wrote this after receiving postcards from a fan for a long time. In every postcard from this particular fan, there was always a chimpanzee, but it was never doing or wearing the same thing. On one postcard, he would be wearing a swimsuit, and on another, he'd be holding a cat. The postcards that this fan would send would never be from the same place more than once. >>

  • Marissa from Akron, OhIs this really based on a true story? That's kind of awesome.
  • Zac from Grawn, MiI would have to agree, this song is so random it's funny. I also think Pinch Me is a good song by them, but it's not on here yet.
  • No_id_please from Hippy Town, Cohahahahha i love this song it makes me happy becuse its so funny and kinda clever and out of the box!
