Lyrics

B-Grade University

Ivy League

If I was an Ivy League
Kind of girl
Do you think that they would give me more
Shifts at work?
Spent all my day
Walking 'round the local lake
Never thought I would have this
9 to 5 heartache

I went to B-grade university
And got myself an arts degree

If I was an Ivy League
Kind of girl
Do you think that I'd be different
Would it change my world?
Spend all my day
Getting on the honour roll
Then I'd go and get married
So I don't live on the Dole

I'll be a straight-A student
And pass with flying colours
Get invited to do honours
I'll be a workplace dreamboat
Job interviews - I know it all
I'll be so damn employable

Let's Go Out

Spit shine my shoes
Stay away from the casino
Haven't seen you in a while
Got to pull my shit together
Hey, remember that time that we slept together
And we just slept and your girlfriend dumped you anyway?
I don't hold that against her

Let's go out and have fun tonight
Let's go out and get drunk tonight
Let's pretend to be alone tonight
Let's go out and have fun

Your mother likes me
She always asks me how I'm going
But that's early in the evening
Before the past comes out to say
Hey, remember that time that we slept together
And we just slept and your best friend had a go at me?
I don't hold that against her

Wes Anderson

I stayed in the shower
To avoid doing some useful shit
My fingers went wrinkly
And my hair had had enough of it

I slept in this morning
'Cause your bed is so much better than mine
You had left for uni
So I changed my phone's alarm time

You're on my mind
And you're all mine
You're the best night's sleep I've ever had
I think you'll find
If we rewind
That trouble never finds a place to land
Every day with you is my lucky day

We went to the movies
'Cause I know you like Wes Anderson
You held my hand the whole time
And, no joke, you have the softest skin

Take it day by day
You can be the one to drive me home
Sitting in your car
Telling stories in a no standing zone

You Don't Think You Like People Like Me

All I want is to have clean skin wine
And watch Mulholland Drive with you
But in the morning through your sleepy eyes
You tell me that I'm not for you
It's not that easy when there's nothing wrong
While everything is falling through
You say it's not to do with me but I
Really want to know the truth

If you can't help it
Then why doesn't this count?
You're staying over
Long after my lights go out
It's taking so long
For you to figure out
If it's serious
And what's it really all about

You don't think you like people like me
I know I've heard this one before
Maybe I'm the one exception that could last forever
But that can only happen if you let us be together
You don't think you like people like me

You come on over just to leave me here
Exactly where I was before
If you're in two minds, you know mine's a third
There isn't room for any more
This conversation goes around and 'round and 'round
It's all been said before
Like a tornado when it loses speed
These words are gonna hit the floor

What's that look on your typeface, honey?
I'm getting tired, don't find this funny
Can't we pick it up from where we started
Even if it leaves me broken hearted?

L-L-L-Leave Me Alone

I heard you went out to see my friends last week
It's been two years but you think you've got a monopoly
You think because you're older
That you know so much better
But it seems your decisions
Make me ask more questions
I heard you went you to see my friends last week

L-l-l-l-l-l-leave me alone
You know I don't want to see you no more

Your new girlfriend kind of looks a lot like me
But that's ok, if you've moved on then leave me be
You think you're pretty clever
But you are so transparent
And all of your confusion
Really lacks direction
Your new girlfriend kind of looks like me

You think because you're older
That you know so much better
But even though you're older
You don't know any better
You think you're pretty clever
But you are so transparent
And all of your confusion
Really lacks direction
