It seems I may have slipped up... when I offered him some grooming tips.

Gotta love this band. Their rhythms are bouncy, their harmonies are solid, their melodies are catchy as anything. I think my favorite thing, though, is their completely artless lyrics. They never, ever reach for a metaphor. Their songs are conversational, their lyrics just describe events in a straightforward manner. Combine that with the subject matter (sometimes love, sometimes just the daily life of a 20s- or- 30s professional) and you have very unique lyrics that paint a more compelling portrait than any other band's can. I like it.

I sped this one up a bit (a lot) partially by mistake, but then I realized it's more fun to play at this tempo anyway. I hope you enjoy it!
