lizzy lyrics – ben kweller

sign me up i volunteer.
votes are in for lifeguard of the year.
her feline past lives are plain.
their singularities are shown in this life again.

like mamma said,
“don’t you let it go to your head
when you know you’re being fed.”
i’m so proud to know you.

lizzy i’ll write, i’ll sing,
telegraph, telegram, telephone, tellin’ you
i’ll be home soon. dienu.

we will wake when kitty licks.
and in the morn work takes her to maine.
dressed and out the door by six.
tomorrow is the first time liz can’t board my plane.

like mamma said,
“don’t you let it go to your head
when you know your book is read.”
i’m so proud to know you.

anna will take me to the port
as liz drives up i-95.
me and my darlin’ keep love alive
even on texas time.

and like my mamma said,
“don’t you let it go to your head
when your town is painted red.”
i’m so proud to know you.

lizzy i’ll write, i’ll sing,
telegraph, telegram, telephone, telling you
i’ll be home soon. dienu.

ooohh… dienu,
dienu,
i love you.
