Zak and Sara

Original Artist: Ben Folds

Sara spelled without an h was getting bored
On a Peavea amp in 1984
While Zak without a c tried out some new guitars
Playing Sara-with-no-hs favourite song

(La da da da, la da da, la da da)
(La da da da, la da da, la da da)

Zak and Sara

Often Sara would have spells where she lost time
She saw the future, she heard voices from inside
The kind of voices she would soon learn to deny
Because at home they got her smacked

(La da da da, la da da, la da da)
(La da da da, la da da, la da da)

Zak called his dad about layaway plans
And Sara told the friendly salesman that:
"Youll all die in your cars,
And whys it gotta be dark?
And youre all working in a submarine"

(Asshole)

She saw the lights, she saw the pale English face
Some strange machines repeating beats and thumping bass
Visions of pills that put you in a loving trance
That make it possible for all white boys to dance
And when Zak finished Saras song, Sara clapped

(La da da da, la da da, la da da)
(La da da da, la da da, la da da)
