lyrics

My roommate's been saying for a while
"Dude, get some new shoes. Vans are what you've gotta buy,"
I said "Two years has been a long time, I
think you're right man, I could use some new style."
So I'm biking it down to the mall
With shoes so old soles get wet first when the rain falls
I bought the first thing I saw
Some kicks so sick you'd say that they off the wall and
As I'm on my way back to my ride
I see this chick rocking a hat above her eyebrows
I'm thinking to myself I've got to ask her out
Because it'll be never if it ain't right now
I walk up to her and say "Hi.
What do you think about going out sometime?"
She says to me, "Well, sounds fine, just
Give me a place and a date and a time."​

I tell her, "Downtown, 45 past 8"
She says, "Sure" text her on Friday to confirm
She says she's feeling sick​

I don't mean to cause no harm, just maybe go on a couple of dates
If we find the vibing right, maybe take it back to my place
Wake up from the morning light, maybe make us some pancakes
But we're never gonna see because you are what you eat
So enjoy them frosted flakes

See, normally that would've been it
But you can't call her out for being sick
Does she think that I got limp wrists?
Just shake it off, proceed to persist
So I'm gonna let it sit a few days, then I'll try again
I'm gonna let it sit to show that I got patience
I'm gonna let it sit to build anticipation and
In the meantime I'll plan my operation
I wait to text her "Hey!"
All the way until the next Thursday
Just to give this cake time to bake
She said it once she'll say it again and
Come that day, on a bench I sit
Someone's MIA and I ain't it
Phone in hand, no messages
Well, shit, twice is all you get.

It's clear to me, if she were serious
She'd be here I'd be delirious to believe
She needs another chance

I don't mean to cause no harm, just maybe go on a couple of dates
If we find the vibing right, maybe take it back to my place
Wake up from the morning light, maybe make us some pancakes
But we're never gonna see because you are what you eat
So enjoy them frosted flakes

I work at a job to accumulate some payment
I ain't well off, but it covers the rent
All about that promo, you know I'm never content
Because of that I respect the management
So, a couple days pass and as I'm leaving work
She texts back saying she was a jerk
Excuse was her phone was dead and
She'd like to like to like to try again
Well, could I take back what I said?
I mean, she's still a perfect ten
Though she's warned me before of her car that doesn't exist and
Of her job or schedule I'm completely clueless
I'll go regardless, it's worth it, she promised
I leave work early just to meet her, got my boss pissed
But guess what, when I pull out my phone
She says "Got no ride, must postpone."

Oh well, I'm gonna go find someone else
Let me know next time just how great
Those frosted flakes taste

I don't mean to cause no harm, just maybe go on a couple of dates
If we find the vibing right, maybe take it back to my place
Wake up from the morning light, maybe make us some pancakes
But we're never gonna see because you are what you eat so enjoy them frosted flakes
