Zak and Sara (live at The State Theatre)

Original Artist: Ben Folds

Sara spelled without an 'h' was getting bored
on a Peavy amp in 1984
while zak without a 'c' tried out some new guitars
playing sara with no 'h's' favorite song

la da da
la da da
la da da

la 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
la da da
la da da

la da da
la da da
la da da

zak and sara

zak called his dad
about layaway plans
and sara told the friendly salesman, that
"you'll all die in your cars
and why's it got to be dark
and your all working in a submarine -
asshole."

she saw the light
she saw the pale English face
some strange machine 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 sara's song, sara clapped

la da da
la da da
la da da

la da da
la da da
la da da

zak and sara
zak and sara

(thank you thank you thank you)
