Music Week- Relient K

Punk rock at its finest. I started listening to this band in high school with their famous single- Marilyn Manson ate my Girlfriend. I enjoy their light hearted demeanor. My freshman year of college, I became a fan of Sadie Hawkins Dance. During my early marriage years I rediscovered them thanks to a used bookstore and discovered For the Moments I Feel Faint.

This band holds a special place in my heart because I can't listen to a song without a memory of a time passed coming up. Music does that to people.

Here are the lyrics to Sadie Hawkins Dance:

All the girls in the bathroom talking
who they gonna take to the Sadie Hawkins
My ears are burning but I kept on walking
smile on my face and an air guitar rocking

 
The Sadie Hawkins Dance
in my khaki pants
There's nothing better
oh oh oh
The girls ask the guys
it's always a surprise
There's nothing better
baby do you like my sweater?

 
Sitting in the back of my next class napping
Got up, gave a speech, then bowed to the clapping
Told a funny joke got the whole class laughing
think I got a tan from the light which I was basking

[x2:]

The Sadie Hawkins Dance
in my khaki pants
There's nothing better
oh oh oh
The girls ask the guys
it's always a surprise
There's nothing better
baby do you like my sweater?

 
Scan the cafeteria for some good seating
I found a good spot by the cheerleaders eating
The quarterback asked me if I'd like a beating
I said that's one thing I won't be needing
And since I'm rather smart and cunning
I took off down the next hall running
Only to get stopped by a girl so stunning
only to get stopped by a girl so stunning

 
She said, "You're smooth, and good with talking.
You're going with me to the Sadie Hawkins"

 
The Sadie Hawkins Dance
in my khaki pants
There's nothing better
oh oh oh
The girls ask the guys
it's always a surprise
There's nothing better
baby do you like my sweater?

 
The Sadie Hawkins Dance
in my khaki pants
There's nothing better
oh oh oh
The girls ask the guys
it's always a surprise
There's nothing better
baby do you like my sweater?

 
This song must really be listened to in order to get the full effect. If you catch yourself doing a little air guitar, bouncing your head, or singing along with the guitar solo-- it's ok-- we all do it.
 
Enjoy.
 
There videos on youtube are the very non existent- at least the good ones. Here's one of my brother's favorite songs.
