Where's Summer B.?

Album: Ben Folds Five (1995)
  • I'd like to tell you
    Like to tell you
    Tell you everything
    Cause nothing changes
    Ever changes
    Doesn't seem the same these days
    Dave's been a mess since Cheryl left
    Just sits at home
    And beats back death
    And Beth still wears that
    Stupid dress

    There goes Joe Caparo again
    With Darren's girl friend
    They're asking where you been
    Like I know
    Where ya been
    Hey Summer, where ya been?

    I tried to tell you
    Tried to tell you
    Took a little bit too long
    And now your phone
    Is disconnected
    And your shit's out on the lawn
    The Hardback Cafe closed down
    Now we've got Office Town
    You should have stuck around 'cause

    There goes Ross and Frank again
    They're holding hands
    They're asking where ya been
    Like I know
    Where ya been
    Hey Summer, where ya been?

    I could take a train
    Or fly away
    Maybe write a book
    And change my name
    I could settle down

    There goes Joe Caparo again
    Hey, that's Darren's girlfriend!
    There's Ross and Frank
    They're holding hands
    They've been asking where ya been
    Hey Summer, where ya been?
    I'll smoke a bowl with Caleb
    We'll fly away or settle down
    Hey, hey Summer, where ya been?
