I wear a ponytail like a waterfall
Loudspeaker cause a land slide
I have a room key and a Johnny
A good buzz, feeling all right
Pitch a tent, pop a top
Forget about what you ain't got
See the sites, sleep til night
Stamp your feet, turn out the lights

If you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

If you're high strung or stressed out
Down in the dumps, been turned out
Stabilized, motorized
Insecure or fableized
Curious or furious
Picked apart like Prometheus
Legalized, penalized
Stamp your feet, dry out your eyes

If you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

You've been Jezebeled, back from hell
Cooling off, feeling well
Tired of talking, talked out
Ticked off or toughed up
Too talled or backed up
Haven't made your mind up
TBD'd or TB'd
Tired of falling to your knees

If you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

And if you want to go where they chain up the sun
See Fernando, see Fernando
He'll buy a bottle of suds for you and everyone
See Fernando, see Fernando

I thought "fermented ball sweat" was the recipe for Blatz.  (Plus bubbles.)
 
I never thought I'd hear of Blatz again. We wouldn't even drink it in college. The word was if you drank Blatz you'd get the blatz!

I think/hope/pray that Americans are indeed moving on to better beers but I think we all got stuck in the IPA phase. Talk about the need to move on...
Hearing this once a year is probably enough.  The fact that I know it by heart, and actually hate it now, tells me it has gotten too much air time on RP.  there is so much better music out there.  Why this?
Sure, it rocks. It's just that it's not very good.

There's a few Abba comments in this thread... this doesn't sound remotely like Abba or their song Fernando.
I turned it up hoping it was ABBA.

You bet!  Seeing him once a year hosting the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon was not nearly enough!

Suds is beer.  Beer being frothy, or sudsy, if you're not careful when pouring into a glass, hence suds.

"It's better to look good then to feel good".......5
LOVE this. have the cd playing in my car this week.

Jenny Lewis, you... look... mahvalous!
"The Next Messiah" is an epic off of this album.
Have to disagree. Great wake-up call at 8:20 am.
Sooooo bored of this
Have I grown old, or has paradise?
Had to bump this to 9. {#Daisy} Such a great song!

¿6? {#Snooty}

I love Jenny Lewis, but not this so much.  Reminds me of the ABBA song, which in this case it 2 strikes against.  That said, I am addicted to the last track "Sing a Song for Them," which sadly is not on RP playlist.

Hehe, if the playlist were for sale, I suspect you'd be hearing alot less of Jenny Lewis than you are now.  When was the last time you heard her on a Clear Channel station?  However, if B&R WERE getting kickbacks from indie artists, I'd have to tip my hat to them.  Nice job there guys ;)

no other song on RP annoys me quite as much as this one.
I saw Fernando, and he wasn't much help. Oh yeah, this song sucks.

I'm completely over Jenny Lewis, but I have to admit this is a fun little tune.

Bill: No need to ever follow this up with Abba, thanks.
 
See, the thing is, some things are greater than the sum of their parts.  Not that I crave that particular Abba song, but I like it when Bill gets jiggy with the segueways (I apologize for referring to it as "getting jiggy".  Not sure what I was thinking.  Hope that doesn't invalidate the point I'm trying to make).

Anyhoo...

Segues are about 15-20% of my enjoyment of RP.  I have a LOT of music available to me... theoretically I could just put my MP3 library on random.  The experience would be MUCH less gratifying... even assuming I could add unknowns to the random mix.  The human touch of making tracking decisions... even off-the-wall decisions, is valuable.  All that being said, I doubt highly either hell or high water would "really" stop a segue if he thought it was a good idea.  I consider it an idle threat... but I had to play along ;)

No!  Please subject us to cruel segueways... please?
Huh! There's actually a track on this release that sounds pretty good.... And Jenny appears to be a tasty-looking lass, indeed.

(I wonder why that other crap has received so much play on RP...)

There's such a fun, timeless quality about this song. I can't help but sing along when it comes up on my playlist or I hear it here. {#Bananajam}
Wow, she really tears this up.  I'd love to see this live.
I would much rather hear ABBA than this.
GO Jenny GO!!!

The Fabulous Jenny Lewis!
