Pinch Me by Barenaked Ladies

It’s been a while since I heard a song from them. Then I try to sing along and fail.

It’s the perfect time of year,
Somewhere far away from here.
I feel fine enough, I guess…
Considering everything’s a mess.
There’s a restaurant down the street,
Where hungry people like to eat.
I could walk, but I’ll just drive –
It’s colder than it looks outside.

It’s like a dream – you try to remember but it’s gone, then ya
Try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn, when ya
Try to see the world beyond your front door.

Take your time cos the way I rhyme’s gonna make you smile, when ya
Realize that a guy my size might take a while, just to
Try to figure out what all this is for.

It’s the perfect time of day
To throw all your cares away;
Put the sprinkler on the lawn
And run through with my gym shorts on;
Take a drink right from the hose
And change into some dryer clothes;
Climb the stairs up to my room…
Sleep away the afternoon.

It’s like a dream – you try to remember but it’s gone, then ya
Try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn, when ya
Try to see the world beyond your front door.

Take your time cos the way I rhyme’s gonna make you smile, when ya
Realize that a guy my size might take a while, just to
Try to figure out what all this is for.

Pinch Me,
Pinch Me,
Cos I’m still asleep.
Please God,
Tell Me
That I’m still asleep.

On an evening such as this,
It’s hard to tell if I exist.
If I packed a car and leave this town,
Who’ll notice that I’m not around?
I could hide out under there…
I just made you say “underwear.”
I could leave but I’ll just stay;
All my stuff’s here anyway.

It’s like a dream – you try to remember but it’s gone, then ya
Try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn, when ya
Try to see the world beyond your front door.

Take your time cos the way I rhyme’s gonna make you smile, when ya
Realize that a guy my size might take a while, just to
Try to figure out what all this is for.
Try to figure out what all this is for.
Try to see the world beyond your front door.
Try to figure out what all this is for.
