Lyrics
i heard it from a mutual friend
that if i asked you out you might say yes
so i asked you to a party on friday night
you said yes, i picked you up, and we had a good time
but i could tell that something wasn't right
cause when i dropped you off you just said goodnight
you kinda smiled at me and told me that you had a good time
and we could do it again
but i read between the lines

yeah i made a great impression on your dad
your mom thought i was the best guy that you ever had
your sister told me i was sweet
so why is it you didn't want me?

so i was spending all my time with you
but i could not shake the thought that i was something to do
when you weren't hanging out with your girlfriends
or at basketball practice or your job at lands end
i could tell that something wasn't right
cause when i dropped you off you just said goodnight
you kind of smiled at me and told me that you had a good time
and we could do it again, but i read between the lines

yeah i made a great impression on your dad
your mom thought i was the best guy that you ever had
your sister told me i was sweet
so why is it you didn't want me?

Great Impression On Your Dad!
Man, this is such a familiar story!

I like your vocal style and I like the whole feel of this song. The piff piff beat is very cool and so are the hand claps and the very abrupt stops.

This could've been a track off of Bucky Fellini! I'm all over it!

Thanks for the download. Now, on to discover more of your stuff.

I like your songs
they're like short stories, and there's a bit of comedy in them, good one-liners and all, but are somehow touching as well.

It sounds
like you don't take it all to serious, which is appealing and rare. Nice sounding arraingment and production, and a dynamite chorus. Thanks Michael2 for steering me here.

Delta King...
... Man I'm just running through your back catalogue, all of which have been on my iPod for a few months and this one just keeps pinging back at me. Your vocal here is SO what I love about your work. I'd kill for a cool VA accent like that! I've been trying to fix in my head what it reminds me of and it's kinda like Mark Linkous without the overarching angst. Great words, great arrangement. Your Delta King hits all the sweet spots here.
This summer's gonna be a Tempie summer in the car!

Why...
I'm gonna learn from this one. At one point I said, thinking about how I will be trying to squeeze the next one out: "yeah, don't be in such a hurry to get everything out; it will find it's right place". Just like everything fits together in this more than catchy tune. I mean it about how I am going to listen a number of times to look at my own writing a little differently. I always try to embrace the different from the way I've been doing it. It's zen, sort of; Beginner's Mind. Different is the only reason any animal is alive on this planet. We all want to be the same when what keeps us alive is the difference. Darwin.

another classic
I have to stop listening to your back catalogue, it's making me feel self-important and lame. Great coming-of-age tune with just the right mix of nerdiness and bravado.

Why is it You Didn't Want Me?
Another gem describing the heartbreak and angst of youth. But you never do it in an angry way. The lyrics say, I'm so hurt. The music smiles at you and says, "Yeah, but you'll get over it."

Maybe the best chorus in a line of great choruses!
