lyrics

stonewall jackson
civil war general
got shot in the back
by his own men
now he's buried
in lexington, virginia
bout a half a mile
from robert e lee

robert e lee
when he lost the civil war
became the president
of a small virgina college
used to be called
george washington college
now they call it
washington and lee

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars

new rock club
weird part of town
local band
turned up too loud
where's all the people who look like me
where's all the people who think like me
everybody here dances like a penguin
everybody here plays with their hair
everybody here plays with their new phone
everybody here dances like charlie brown

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars

when i was back in college
i dated a crack whore
an actual crack whore
for five or six months
met her at a party
bummed a smoke and told her she was pretty
took me back to her place
showed me her tomatoes
and we ditched all our classes
to go the park
to lie in the grass
and look up at the clouds
and she was pretty cool
and she was great in bed
and it never even mattered
that i had no crack

domine deus
rex caelestis
deus pater
omnipotens
interdum nos
planto erroris
interdum erroris
es emundo

this one’s for you
you could've had it if you wanted it
but you never asked me for it
so i kept it for myself
sometimes you’re so awesome
i want to shout it from a mountain
sometimes it's too good
to do anything but feel

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars
