Overblown

Album: Singles Soundtrack (1992)
  • (Ok, grunge-masters, here we go)

    Everybody loves us
    Everybody loves our town
    That's why I'm thinking lately
    The time for leaving is now

    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    It's so overblown

    Everybody loves us
    Man, they give me the creeps
    And you're up there shaking and flexing
    Display of a macho freak
    Now you've got their attention
    And you've got so very far
    They gave your very own spotlight
    Just like some real rock star

    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    It's so overblown

    Show 'em, Stevie

    You got a sack full of candy
    All I got was a rock
    They got you by your big business boy
    Nice to know you're packing extra socks

    Everybody loves us
    Everybody's getting kind of old
    Couldn't hold a regular job
    Long live rock and roll

    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    It's so overblown
    Overblown
    Overblown
    Overblown
    It's all over and done Writer/s: Steven Turner, Matthew Lukin, David Peters

They Might Be GiantsSongwriter Interviews

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
