I'm not usually a big lyrics guy, but I wanted to learn this song and had to type out the lyrics to try and memorize them so I figured I'd post what I have.  This song is still changing all the time so who knows how long these lyrics will last, but I took these from Jon's recording of the 03/11 show.  There are couple of parts I'm not 100% on but I think this is pretty close.  Feel free to suggest changes if you see/hear them.
You fuckin' did it
you really did it yeah
you really did it
you really did it
you really did it
you really did it yeah
you really did it
you really did it
all those who are hangin' round the water cooler
will never believe how you tackled the thousand puzzle pieces
and you could see it before we completed it
before we made it whole
how you put it all together with a blindfold
you're like a long game token that keeps the game goin'
but your claim to fame is how you like to lay low
out of the lime light
which can hurt your eyes
if you're not careful you'll become another devil in disguise
but you watch your back
you watch your back
you're growing eyes in the back of your head
to prevent another sneak attack
sneak attack
you must be keepin' secret weapons in your fanny pack
you're like my laughing gas
you got the cat to dance
you're like Lance on a mountain in the tour de France
you got a wing span spanning the globe
you got gold
and you're teaching us to let go
you're a wise old owl when you're the cat's meow
if this were twelfth grade you'd be my cap and gown
if this were India then you'd be a sacred cow
and I'd bow down to you
so grateful to the gods for making you
CHORUS
you'll be standing up for the equal right of the American people
and you'll be meeting all the influential seekers with a similar dream
you've got a front seat saved that's emblazed with your name
and a super hero cape on
you see the future as a sky full of possibility
with a spryness of mind and a psychic ability
you probably won't die at the hands of an enemy
and not in a den of inequity
You're not the average Joe
you're not the average Jane
you're not above or below
but you're never just plain
you never take no personally
and any time you get stopped you try another way
could we settle for a kiss without a cease and desist
if they ask we won't tell 'cause we're activists
i am that I am and you are that you are
and we're all that is
how p-e-r-f-e-c-t your a-t-t-i-t-u-d-e be
CHORUS
SKATING
When you circumnavigating the turntable call and attracts
like you be jumpin' in the water you be makin' a splash
you be keepin' your heart beat going
and keepin' the harmony going
well there's an awful lot of music styles you could play
well there's an awful lot of tastes
an awful lot of dates you could be on
you be keepin' your back bone strong
and be keepin' the trombone blowin'
well every friend of mine will give each other high-fives
when your beautiful mind is to your own devices
you do what you like and you always like what you try
you touch me like an iPhone application
move me like a smooth jazz music station
doin' what you do in the way that you choose to do them
oh my god
you're quick to be so quotable
damn you got a way with words
you got a magical handshake for saving the earth
you are a generous man
you are so awesome it hurts
and you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
CHORUS
you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
you are a-w-e-s-o-me

Awesome!



I've been listening to the java joes version of this and the lyrics are abit different, but some are the same, and the ones that are the same i've been hearing them wrong, and yours makes much better sense so i can fix mine up now and sing along to it properly, till jason changes it again that is Image



Much appreciated.

I always thought it was funny on the Java Joe's version:

"if this were India then you'd be a sacred cow

if this were twelfth grade you'd be my cap and gown

and I'd bow down to you"



Who bows down to someone at twelfth grade?



The revised lyrics make so much more sense.

True.  I partially learned the old lyrics a while back, so now I constantly try to put the India line first.  This tune makes me wish I were competent on guitar since I've got the lyrics down now and it would be a blast to cover.

I'm with you on that - I'm stuck with Beautiful Mess and Who I am Today - everything else sounds just a little off Image

Does anyone know the new bit that replaced the 'You're like Lance on the mountain on the tour de france' lyric?

I can't for the life of me pick up what the lyrics are. Anybody? The new lyrics are at 1:32 in this video:

I've been listening to the new words for a hundred times and I still have no idea.
I tweeted Philly, maybe she can tell us!
PS: To me it sounds like something with Flashdance and hooly, but that absolutely makes no sense haha Image

You're not far off at all actually. I thought it was something with Flashdance" and "hoola" and just thought I was missing the dance-related clarification in the middle, but Antonia shared a Tweet that Mona sent out last month that clears things up:

Darek, here's what Mona tweeted to Dana a while back:

@danabaker Ha! It's a little update to the tune: "It's like Beale's Flashdance and Chihuly glass".

I had to look up "Chihuly Glass", but it is indeed awesome! - https://www.google.com/search?q=chihuly ... 4AOri4DgBA

Awesome, thanks Toni and Darek! I was really looking for a link between Flashdance and something that ends with uly, but I would've never found that out. ^^
