  • I know a girl who thinks of ghosts
    She'll make ya breakfast
    She'll make ya toast
    But she don't use butter
    And she don't use cheese
    She don't use jelly
    Or any of these
    She uses Vaseline

    And I know a guy who goes to shows
    When he's at home and he blows his nose
    He don't use tissues or his sleeve
    He don't use napkins or any of these
    He uses magazines

    I know a girl who reminds me of Cher
    (Reminds me of Cher)
    She's always changing
    (She's always changing)
    The color of her hair
    (Color of her hair)
    She don't use nothing
    That ya buy at the store
    She likes her hair to be real orange
    She uses tangerines

  • Paige from Houston, TxI love how the verses target different dysfunctional individuals -- especially the girl who uses tangerines to dye her hair. :) GREAT song!
  • Greg from Maryville, MoBen Folds nails this song. I consider it an example where he cover is better than the original (sorry Oklahoma).
  • Mario from Paulsboro, Nji think this song is about anal sex in the back of a winnabaigo on a trip to the grand canyon in the summer of 69!!!
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesBen Folds Five covered this a B-side to their 1998 hit "Brick"
