Song of the Week

I have my reasons for posting this song. I’ll just leave it at that. It doesn’t mean anything to my particular situation or have any super deep meaning in my life. Just a catchy Ben Folds song that is extremely hard to find.

Song: Hiro’s Song (live)
Album: Songs for Goldfish
Artist: Ben Folds

My Name is Hiro I am 51
Since 1980 life has been no fun
And I don’t want to die
I left my family for the secretary
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Her name is Yuko she is 22
She and my daughter were best friends in High School
They say it’s crazy and it’s temporary
But I refuse to rot like my contemporaries

I wanna explode
In a Karaoke Supernova

I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, won’t you let me explode
I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, won’t you let me explode
In a Karaoke Supernova, yeah

Last night she dressed me up in hip hop pants
The phat g-stylin rides below your ass
She wants to show me to her mom and dad
I told her Yuko I’m not down with that

Cuz lately I can feel the years between us
I hope to God my friends at work don’t see us
Tonight she asked me if I’ve ever seen Jesus
Cuz she had backstage passes for three of us

I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, Won’t you let me explode
I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, Won’t you let me explode, oh oh
In a Karaoke Supernova, yeah

And now she’s gone and broke my heart goddamn her
Turns out she’s been fucking his drum programmer
She likes his style, she likes his rock start glamour
Well she’s an infant! He can damn well have her!

I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, Won’t you let me explode
I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, Won’t you let me explode
I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, Won’t you let me explode
I don’t wanna grow old
Won’t you let me, Won’t you let me explode
In a Karaoke Supernova
