Kubla Khan - Coupon lyrics
We were just in the eleventh grade
I was working at the pool, and I'd just gotten paid
You had never even thrown me a glance
But I had a little money so I took a chance
I kicked a stone with my checkered Vans
I started to doubt all my well-laid plans
But then you smiled and said you'd be my friend
It's ten years later and I'm calling you again.
Because I got this coupon in the mail
It said by one, get one free.
So now that I've got the means,
Would you like to have dinner with me?
You had pizza sauce on your chin
That caught the light when I made you grin.
I thought about licking it off
But I knew I wouldn't know when to stop.
My curfew was an hour before yours was
My Casio wristwatch counted down my buzz
Parked in your driveway you said you had a nice time
I still remember your name, do you remember mine?
And if you don't call back
There's not much I can say
But I thought that you should know
This coupon expires in twenty-one days.
Don't worry I understand
You probably already got yourself a man.
I've gone this many years without you,
Not a whole lot more pain a few more will do.
I just figured it was worth a try.
I thought maybe you remembered me as a decent guy.
A woman like you doesn't need another friend.
But maybe I'll call somewhere around the bend.
