  • Lyrics
  • The verse's vocal melody is based on a certain Beach Boys' #1 single. Lead singer Curt Kirkwood recalled to us: "I just started singing it and it had this sort of rock riff. After I'd been doing it for a while, I realized that I was completely ripping off 'Kokomo' from The Beach Boys! Just in the way that the rhythm of the vocal goes. I don't know that the melody line is exactly like that. And I don't remember the lyrics to 'Kokomo,' but you can kind of see how it's like, 'Na na na, na na na.' It inspired me to follow the bouncing ball with that kind of vocal rhythm."
