  • Lyrics
  • This song features Regina Spektor. Ben Folds told Rolling Stone magazine about their collaboration. He explained: "It's real simple I just called her up and we went up and did it. I had a part I wanted her to sing it, but she added a lot. There's stuff that just came out of her mouth that wasn't the plan, which is great. That's kinda what I wanted. The song chords were so simple there wasn't much room for that, but she's one of those talented people. When she works it's scary good. She's just all talent."
