Army (Live Album Version) (Live Album Version)

Ben Folds

Well i thought about the army
Dad said, son you're fucking high
And i thought, yeah there's a first for everything
So i took my old man's advice
Three sad semesters
It was only 15 grand spent in bed
I thought about the army
I dropped out and joined a band instead

Grew a moustache and a mullet
Got a job at chick-fil-a
Citing artistic differences
The band broke up in may
And in june reformed without me
And they'd got a different name
I nuked another grandma's apple pie
And hung my head in shame

Been thinking a lot today
Been thinking a lot today

Oh, i think i'll write a screenplay
Oh, i think i'll take it to la
Oh, i think i'll get it done yesterday

In this time of introspection
On the eve of my election
I say to my reflection
God please spare me more rejection
'cause my peers they criticize me
And my ex-wives all despise me
Try to put it all behind me
But my redneck past is nipping at my heels

I've been thinking a lot today
I've been thinking a lot today
I've been thinking a lot today
I thought about the army...
