how it should be (sha sha) lyrics – ben kweller

when i was a movie star
an asteroid had hit the earth
and prematurely ended my career.
i thought out loud, but no one heard me saying:

nothing isn’t nothing,
nothing’s something that’s important to me.
that’s right.
and everyone’s a little nothing,
that is how it should be.

that’s right. that’s right.
sha sha. sha doo.

when i was an astronaut,
i bought a fancy charm.
i thought you liked it but you called it cheap
and at my feet, it fell, like:

so sue me,
it’s up to me if i decide to be what i think is right.
and don’t bother me when i’m watching ‘planet of the apes’ on t.v.

that’s right. that’s how it should be.
sha sha. sha doo.

so sue me,
it’s up to me if i decide to be what i think is right.
the sound, it found, the ground, and it hid it for free.

that’s right. that’s how it should be.
sha sha. sha doo.
