Kate

Original Artist: Ben Folds

She plays Wipeout on the drums,
The squirrels and the birds come,
Gather round to sing the guitar,
Oh I,
Have you got nothing to say?

When all words fail she speaks,
Her mix tape's a masterpiece,
Walks through the garden so the roses can see,
Oh I,
Have you got nothing to say?

And you can see the daisies in her footsteps,
Dandelions, butterflies,
I wanna be Kate,
Kate,
Kate,
Kate.

Everyday she wears the same thing,
I think she smokes pot,
She's everything I want,
She's everything I'm not,
Oh I,
Have you got nothing to say?

She never gets wet,
She smiles and it's a rainbow,
And she speaks,
And she breathes,
I wanna be Kate.

Down by Rosemary and Cameron she hands out the Bhagavad Gita,
I see her around every couple days,
I wanna meet her so I can say,
Hey Kate.

She never gets wet,
She smiles and it's a rainbow,
You can see,
I wanna wanna wanna be Kate,
Kate,
Kate,
Kate,
Na Na Kate,
Kate,
Kate,
Kate,
Na Na Na Na Na Na.
