They Might Be Giants wrote lots and lots of tiny songs and put them all together and called the whole thing "Fingertips". "Aren't You The Guy" is one of the Fingertips. The original song is 7 seconds long. I have turned it into an full, almost-three-minute song. There are over twenty Fingertips left to go.
Excuse the intrusion, but my wife can't see the band
She stands at five-foot-one and love Dismemberment Plan
My God, I know that face
How could I forget the guy from the Pavement concert who made
me eat a cigarette butt in front of my date
Hey, aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?
Before you answer that question, consider this:
You wouldn't hit a man who just had his glasses fixed
My God, I know that smile
How could I forget the face that he made when he hit me in the eye
at the Butthole Surfers concert in '95
Why, aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?
