The King Of Bedside Manor – Barenaked Ladies

You know he’s not the kind of man who likes to see the world around him
Crumble to a ball around his feet.
So he’s always ready, he’s always set, he’s always well prepared,
he’s the most peculiar man you’ll ever meet.

[Chorus]
You know he’s not the king of Bedside Manor.
He’s not the Tom Jones that lives next door.
He’s not the king of Bedside Manor.
He hardly even lives there anymore.

He says excuse me, I hope you don’t mind
that I followed you into this shop
but I couldn’t help but notice that riding crop
Sticking out of your haversack,
Um, I wouldn’t mind riding you bareback.
He’s subtle on the dancefloor and he’s suave around the bar
He’s a quickdraw with a lighter, he’s a pseudo movie star.
You know he was quite a singer, quite an actor,
quite some time ago.
He had quite a famous program, late night bedtime tv show.

[Chorus]

Well he opens up the curtains at the crack of dawn
Just to see the lovely ladies who have come and gone
From the house next door to his house on the lane,
He consoles himself that he’s got his health and he knows he can’t complain.

[Chorus]

He’s not the King of Bedside Manor
He’s not the King of Bedside Manor
Hardly even lives there anymore.

Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto

He’s not the king, he’s not the king, he’s not the king of Bedside Manor.

Conventioneers – Barenaked Ladies

You walked into the room
And the whole place stopped to notice
Standing next to you, I feel hopeless and you know this
I’ve never been ashamed of my attraction
I’d be happy if you gave me just a fraction
As we danced, I could see in your eyes
You and me as senior citizens in love

I followed your perfume out away from all the rabble
Right up to your room for a drink and travel Scrabble
You, stationed in the warm glow of the t.v.
Too patient as I’m playing L(1)O(1)V(4)E(1)

And we laugh…and we laugh…and we laugh
And we have to or we’ll end up in the bath

Now we’re in the bath, I’m already thinking marriage
I know that in the past it was something I’d disparage
You turned down all the lights, I lit the candles
We rolled around in robes and hotel sandals
Then you slept, and I dressed, and I left
And I guess I’ll see you Monday like before

Before all the fireworks exploded
Our conversations were so loaded, innuendo flying
Now what can we say?
Have a nice day
Looks like rain today…

Now I’m in a cab, heading back to my apartment
Everything is drab, and I wish it never started
Now I’ve landed in this awkward situation
How can I just avoid a conversation?
So I wait, come in late. It’d be great
If you transferred out of state

Duct Tape Heart – Barenaked Ladies

It was in pieces ’til this adhesive
Stuck it together, now it beats again
It’s working alright, and it looks tight
A little miracle I’d recommend

I could use another roll, another roll
I could use another roll right now

Stop messing with my duct tape heart
Your best won’t make it fall apart
Because I’ll always have enough, enough
For when I gotta tape it up, it up
Stop messing with my duct tape heart
‘Cos no one’s ever gonna tear that thing apart

A million uses, you know the truth is
There isn’t any heart that it can’t fix
When you went through one, just make a new one??
And make a wallet out of extra bits

I could use another roll, another roll
I could use another roll right now

Stop messing with my duct tape heart
Your best won’t make it fall apart
Because I’ll always have enough, enough
For when I gotta tape it up, it up
Stop messing with my duct tape heart
‘Cos no one’s ever gonna tear that thing apart

Woohoo, woohoo
Woohoo, woohoo

Polyethylene gold, pressure-sensitive tape
It’s tried, it’s true, nothing it can’t do
Fixed the Fender on the rover that was left on the moon
It’s good enough for you

Stop messing with my duct tape heart
Your best won’t make it fall apart
Because I’ll always have enough, enough
For when I gotta tape it up, it up
Stop messing with my duct tape heart
‘Cos no one’s ever gonna tear that thing apart

Brian Wilson – Barenaked Ladies

Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night,
just to check out the late-night record shop.
Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane;
but when I’m surrounded I just can’t stop.

It’s a matter of instinct, it’s a matter of conditioning,
It’s a matter of fact.
You can call me Pavlov’s dog
Ring a bell and I’ll salivate- how’d you like that?
Dr. Landy tell me you’re not just a pedagogue,
cause right now I’m

[Chorus]
Lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did
Well I’m lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did.

So I’m lying here, just starting at the ceiling tiles.
and I’m thinking about what to think about.
Just listening and relistening to Smiley Smile,
and I’m wondering if this is some kind of creative drought
because I am

[Chorus]

And if you want to find me I’ll be out in the sandbox,
wondering where the hell all the love has gone.
Playing my guitar and building castles in the sun,
and singing “Fun, Fun, Fun.”

[Chorus]

I had a dream that I was three hundred pounds
and though I was very heavy,
I floated ’til I couldn’t see the ground
I floated ’til I couldn’t see the ground
Somebody help me, I couldn’t see the ground
Somebody help me, I couldn’t see the ground
Somebody help me because I’m

[Chorus]

Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night.
Just to check out the late-night record shop.
Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane;
but when I’m surrounded I just can’t stop.
