Lyrics

Music and Lyric: Jim Boggia / Jonathan Coulton


Take out the Fisher-Price.

I've got memories

trapped in vinyl and they come to life.

All that I have to do

is set the needle down

and I'll have a smile

because I know that I'm going to be right . . .

Right back in my room like I was four.

Bubblegum 45s scattered on the floor.

Spin 'Crimson and Clover'

I'd sing along over and over

trying to get it right.


I think fidelity is the enemy.

I like mine cut out from a cereal box.

Every skip, scratch, and pop

is a joy to me

and I have a smile

because I know that I'm going to be right . . .


Right back in my room like I was four.

Bubblegum 45s scattered on the floor.

Spin 'Crimson and Clover'

I'd sing along over and over

trying to get it right.


I believe sometimes words are meaningless

and just get in the way.

A set of chords or a well-placed electric harpsichord

can have a lot more to say.


I know that I'm going to be right.


Right back in my room like I was four.

Cereal box records scattered on the floor.

Spin 'Crimson and Clover'

I'd sing along over and over

and I'd try to get it right.
