    What is Monkey Feelings from? I've heard of it but i've never actually listened to it. And I don't think its on any full album.

    It's on the Sister Jack single. It's awesome, get your hands on it if you can. I know Best Buy surprisingly has copies on hand most of the time and they're usually $5.

    Thanks for giving me something to do when I should be sleeping! Here's "Monkey Feelings," transcribed by me. Please correct me if you hear something different.

    You were a fly-by-night
    No ?, No plans
    I was a practiced mark
    Listening to the weatherman
    And you said cool it babe
    It can't be figured out
    You better cool it down now
    You gonna wear it out
    Mmm, he comin' out on my back (?)
    Needle released, cause the heat comes down on our crack (?)
    I been good too long
    Come on
    Come on
    I wanna live down where
    I gotta move
    I gotta move
    I wanna live nowhere
    Aw you move back down South
    With your new headband
    Before the word's even out
    Knew 'bout the rotating fans
    And we said cool it babe
    You said what's it to me
    Said you gotta fight even when you know you're wrong
    We all act like we knew what that means
    Shake, spittin' out on my back (?)
    I know that scene, no I'm not a ??
    I'm a ?? (I'm a critic? I'm on crack??)
    Come on, oh come on, I've been good too long
    I've been good too long
    Come on
    Well come on
    I wanna live nowhere
    I got to move
    I got to move
    Oh no, out to the sticks (?)

    As far as what's going on at the end there, it's anyone's guess.

    "All I Got Is Me"

    I feel myself
    going down
    So I go throwing my weight around
    What good that I've known
    Is out the door
    Right as rain, and sure as ?? (sounds like "North Elsenore," whatever that means)
    And when light (?) feeling cuts
    Who's there backing me up
    Backing me up
    And all
    I got
    Is me
    You know I'm gonna defend
    Everything
    As soon as, soon as you threaten my king
    I'm gonna forget
    All I've been told
    As soon as I do what I think of below (?)
    When night
    feeling hits
    All their
    advocates are thick on the ground
    Now they ain't around
    And all
    I got
    Is me
    All I got is me
    All I got is
    All I got is me
    All I got
    I feel myself
    Goin' down
    So I go no there's no weight around
    What good that I've known
    Is out the door
    Right as rain, and sure as (North Elsenore again?)
    And when light feeling cuts
    Who's there looking out for, back me up
    Cause all I
    All I got
    Is

    "The Book I Write"
    I wanna open this heart
    I want so much to play
    But both of us
    Stay on our guard in the same way
    And I know, this is the book I write
    All that we knew, just a clue
    All that we was, just because I never knew
    I wanna trigger your heart
    There's something else beside us ever we part (???)
    Hey hey
    And it's the book I write
    I let it go so long
    And now the book I write
    This is the
    No
    All that we are, all we do
    All that we are, all we do
    Is here forever
    All that we was, just because
    All that we do, just a clue
    I never knew
    This is the book I write
    Oh and I let it go so long
    No

    Nice! I have to work on it tonight and figure out if I hear anything different.

    I'll take a hack at the first verse of "The Book I Write." My interpretation doesn't match wantsarevolution's type-up or the first resource I checked.

    I wanna open his heart
    It wants so much to be played
    But both of us
    Stay on guard in the same way

    Other than that, I don't have anything to offer.

    By the way, does anybody know where I might find Monkey Feelings for less than $5? If not, I may just visit Best Buy. (Thanks, TheDoctor)

    I want to know what he sings on It Took A Rumor To Make Me Wonder, Now I'm Convinced I'm Going Under before the part that goes "Come back to Texas and be my wife (save my life/whatever).

    I second that, TheUnderdog. Because what I hear is "Witches day, bitches die" and that can't be correct.

    It DOES sound a little like he's speaking a foreign language in that part, so maybe the reason I can't understand it is because it's not in English.

    Sounds like "bitches day, bitches night" to me. But I might just be a little flustered by Britt's voice proposing to me right through my headphones to hear it properly.

    RE: "It took a rumor..."

    Listening to it again, I think he says "Which is day, which is night" the first time, and "bitches" the second time.

    Anybody got "Sunday Morning's" lyrics already? If not I can transcribe it like I did the others.

    That makes more sense than "pictures day/pictures night" which is what I thought he was saying.

    Maybe it is "Peaches day, peaches night/Come buy Texas peaches before they die".

    or "Princess Grace, Princess Di/Come back to Texas and save my life".

    The idea of it saying "Princess Di" and "Texas" so close together reminds me of my first "date" years ago at Lakeline Mall.

    Do you guys not know that all Spoon lyrics are available on their website under "discog"?

    You know, I had a dream about drinking an Orange Julius the other night.

    And, Kerri, not all Spoon lyrics are actually posted in the "discog" section (sadly).

    Not all of the lyrics are on the spoon Discography though!

    I've been thinking about It Took a Rumor... a lot lately and particuarly what I'm hearing, the "Pictures day/Pictures night". I am well aware that it doesn't make sense, but if you think about The Delicate Place, "picture" is used as a verb in the lyric, "I'll picture for you/If you picture for me".

    Can you think of any other Spoon songs where "picture" is used as a verb or in a way that it's not intended to be used? What does "I'll picture for you, if you picture for me" mean to you personally?

    "What does "I'll picture for you, if you picture for me" mean to you personally?"

    This was said in my best Dr. Ruth voice.

    Yikes, that is pretty close. However, one important thing is that the melody is not sampled but rather the beat. Hard to stake claim to a beat.
