Her Spelling's Atrocious

Listen | Buy

NOTES: First, I was going to put up a Tragically Hip song. Couldn't find one I really wanted, so I moved on to Treble Charger. Decided "Friend of Mine" just wasn't doing it for me today, so now I'm on to Sloan. Obviously, it is Canada Day. And I am late for work.

She was underwhelmed, if that's a word
I know it's not, 'cause I looked it up
That's one of those skills that I learned in my school

I was overwhelmed, and I'm sure of that one
'Cause I learned it back in grade school
When I was young

She said, "You is funny"
I said, "You are funny"
She said, "Thank you"
and I said, "Nevermind"
She rolled her eyes
Her beautiful eyes

The point is not the grammar
It's the feeling
That is certainly in my heart
But not in hers

But not in hers
But not in hers
But not in hers
But not in hers

We were talkin' about people that eat meat
I felt like an ass 'cause I was one
She said, "It's okay," but I felt like
I just ate my young

She is obviously a person with a cause
I told her that I don't smoke or drink
She told me to loosen up on her way to the L.C.

She skips her classes and gets good grades
I go to my courses rain or shine
She's passed her classes while I attend mine

While I attend mine
While I attend mine
While I attend mine
While I attend

She pulled out a story about her life
I think it included something about me
I'm not sure of that but I'm sure of one thing
Her spelling's atrocious

She told me to read between the lines
And tell her exactly what I got out of it
I told her affection had two Fs
Especially when you're dealing with me

I usually notice all the little things
One time I was proud of it, she says it's annoying
She cursed me up and down and rolled her Rs, her beautiful Rs

She says I'm caught up in triviality
All I really wanna know is what she thinks of me
I think my love for her makes me miss the point

I miss the point, I miss the point
I miss the point, I miss the point
I miss the point, I miss the point
I miss the point
Hey mister

That's my favourite Sloan song! Awesome. I was listening to it just two days ago after Totem gave me back that CD.

This used to be my fave Sloan song, back in my university days. Ah, the memories. Actually, this may be the ONLY Sloane song I like. Gasp. Isn't that almost as bad as admitting I don't like the Tragically Hip? I'm a bad Canadian.

You are a bad Canadian!

But don't worry, you're not alone......
