Moving in Stereo
The Cars

Life's the same I'm moving in stereo
Life's the same except for my shoes
Life's the same you're shakin' like tremolo
Life's the same it's all inside you
It's so easy to blow up your problems
It's so easy to play up your breakdown
It's so easy to fly through the window
It's so easy to fool with the sound
It's so tough to get up
It's so tough
It's so tough to live up
It's so tough on you
Life's the same I'm moving in stereo
Life's the same except for my shoes
Life's the same you're shakin' like tremolo
Life's the same it's all inside you
Life's the same I'm moving in stereo
Life's the same except for my shoes
Life's the same you're shakin' like tremolo
Life's the same it's all inside you

I can't be the only one who hears Moving In Stereo and thinks of Phoebe Cates.... :rolleyes:

Lots of weird lyrics in Cars songs. (I was a big Cars fan growing up.) Ric Ocasek liked to get surreal with his lyrics.

    I found one!

    50 Ways to Say Goodbye - Train


    She'll think I'm Superman
    Not super minivan
    How could you leave on Yom Kippur?

    We were at a party
    His earlobe fell in the deep
    Someone reached in and grabbed it
    It was a rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    We were at the beach
    Everybody had matching towels
    Somebody went under a dock
    And there they saw a rock
    It wasn't a rock
    It was a rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    Motion in the ocean
    His air hose broke
    Lots of trouble
    Lots of bubble
    He was in a jam
    S'in a giant clam
    Rock rock
    Rock lobster
    Down, down
    Lobster rock
    Lobster rock
    Let's rock!
    Boy's in bikinis
    Girls in surfboards
    Everybody's rockin'
    Everybody's fruggin'
    Twistin' 'round the fire
    Havin' fun
    Bakin' potatoes
    Bakin' in the sun
    Put on your noseguard
    Put on the Lifeguard
    Pass the tanning butter
    Here comes a stingray
    There goes a manta-ray
    In walked a jelly fish
    There goes a dog-fish
    Chased by a cat-fish
    In flew a sea robin
    Watch out for that piranha
    There goes a narwhal
    Here comes a bikini whale!
    Rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    Rock lobster
    Rock lobster

    The whole song, but it was a good one.


    One pill makes you larger
    And one pill makes you small
    And the ones that mother gives you
    Don't do anything at all
    Go ask Alice
    When she's ten feet tall

    And if you go chasing rabbits
    And you know you're going to fall
    Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar
    Has given you the call
    Call Alice
    When she was just small

    When the men on the chessboard
    Get up and tell you where to go
    And you've just had some kind of mushroom
    And your mind is moving low
    Go ask Alice
    I think she'll know

    When logic and proportion
    Have fallen sloppy dead
    And the White Knight is talking backwards
    And the Red Queen's off with her head
    Remember what the dormouse said
    Feed your head
    Feed your head

    I haven't listened to it in awhile, but it always set my imagination off !

    A Whiter Shade of Pale
    Procol Harum
    We skipped the light fandango
    Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
    I was feeling kinda seasick
    But the crowd called out for more
    The room was humming harder
    As the ceiling flew away
    When we called out for another drink
    The waiter brought a tray
    And so it was that later
    As the miller told his tale
    That her face, at first just ghostly
    Turned a whiter shade of pale
    She said, 'There is no reason'
    And the truth is plain to see
    But I wandered through my playing cards
    And would not let her be
    One of sixteen vestal virgins
    Who were leaving for the coast
    And although my eyes were open
    They might have just as well've been closed

    Talking Heads. Nothing but Flowers. Got to be the strangest lyrics ever but I'm a fan. what can I say?

    Here we stand
    Like an Adam and an Eve
    Waterfalls
    The Garden of Eden
    Two fools in love
    So beautiful and strong
    The birds in the trees
    Are smiling upon them
    From the age of the dinosaurs
    Cars have run on gasoline
    Where, where have they gone?
    Now, it's nothing but flowers
    There was a factory
    Now there are mountains and rivers
    You got it, you got it
    We caught a rattlesnake
    Now we got something for dinner
    We got it, we got it
    There was a shopping mall
    Now it's all covered with flowers
    You've got it, you've got it
    If this is paradise
    I wish I had a lawnmower
    You've got it, you've got it
    Years ago
    I was an angry young man
    And I'd pretend
    That I was a billboard
    Standing tall
    By the side of the road
    I fell in love
    With a beautiful highway
    This used to be real estate
    Now it's only fields and trees
    Where, where is the town
    Now, it's nothing but flowers
    The highways and cars
    Were sacrificed for agriculture
    I thought that we'd start over
    But I guess I was wrong
    Once there were parking lots
    Now it's a peaceful oasis
    You've got it, you've got it
    This was a Pizza Hut
    Now it's all covered with daisies
    You got it, you got it
    I miss the honky tonks,
    Dairy Queens, and 7-Elevens
    You got it, you got it
    And as things fell apart
    Nobody paid much attention
    You got it, you got it
    I dream of cherry pies,
    Candy bars, and chocolate chip cookies
    You got it, you got it
    We used to microwave
    Now we just eat nuts and berries
    You got it, you got it
    This was a discount store,
    Now it's turned into a cornfield
    You've got it, you've got it
    Don't leave me stranded here
    I can't get used to this lifestyle

    Oh YES you do.

    The Cars. I don't mind you coming here, and wasting all my time. Cuz when you're standing oh so near, I kind of lose my mind...
    What? Someone's mere presence drives you insane and wastes all your time and you don't mind?

    Clay Aiken. I would be the smartest man, if I was invisible.
    If only your lyrics could be invisible.

    Toby Keith.
    Red Solo cup, you're not just a cup, you're my friend.....
    Hey Toby. Do me a favor. Keep that kind of stuff to yourself.

    Eminem.
    Love is Evil, spell it backwards I'll show ya.

    When I was a geisha, he was a samurai, Somehow I understood him when he spoke Thai.
    He must have been a well travelled samurai. Yeah. Let's just throw random far eastern stuff in a song.

    Drake.
    Tuck my Napkin in my shirt cuz I'm just mobbin like that.
    Must have been from that scene in the Godfather that ended up on the cutting room floor.

    REM.
    Well you'll just have to listen to this one. Too many to even write.

    When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie that's amore.
    It was at Rico's pizza. The moon hit my eye just like the pizza pie my date threw in my face, and thats when I knew... MMMMMagic. She's the one.
    Um no dean. When you're down by the sea and an eel bites your knee that's a moray.
    .......
    .......
    Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay Like a gay tarantella
    Seeing as how I've never seen a gay tarantella or heard a heart play tippy tippy tay, I'll have to take your word on that one.

    By the way kids, when grandma hands you that line about how bad your music is and it's not like the great music of yesteryear well you just break out with
    WHEN THE MOON HITS YOUR EYE LIKE A BIG PIZZA PIE.... And start laughing at her.
