AJR – OK Overture Lyrics

OK Overture Lyrics – AJR

These are our drums
This is our melody
Da da da da da da da da-ah-ah
Now listen closely as our drums become our melody

And here’s our song:

Da da da da da da da da-ah-ah
Da da da da da da da-ah
Da da da da da da da da-ah-ah
Da da da da da da da-ah-ah

So let me play my violin for you

Ahh ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ahh ah-ah
Ahh ah-ah-ah
So let me play my violin for you

The truth is that I’m screwed
Still Joe, do you think I’m cool?

I got friends in a lot of weird places
Wonder if they gonna call the penny when my face hits
I got friends in a lot of weird places
Wonder if they gonna call the penny when my face hits

Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey

Humpty Dumpty went
Humpty Dumpty went
Humpty Dumpty went down
He said screw it
Im’a smile right through it
And I’ll scream when no one’s around

Humpty Dumpty went
Humpty Dumpty went
Humpty Dumpty went down
He said screw it
Im’a smile right through it
And I’ll scream when no one, when no one, when no one’s around

Da da da da da da da da-ah-ah
Da da da da da da da-ah

(And I’ll scream when no one, when no one, when no one’s around)

One day, maybe someday
I’ll be so out of touch
I’ll become a trumpet or a drum set
In a sad orchestra
One day, maybe someday
In a world spitting up
It’s getting hard, so very hard
To keep up

One day, maybe someday
I’ll be so out of touch
I’ll become a trumpet or a drum set
In a sad orchestra
One day I won’t know what to write
And I can’t be eighteen my whole life
But I’m too fucking young to feel so fuckin’ old
But I’ll try, and I’ll try, and I’ll try…

But I’m not dead yet so I guess I’ll be alright

Bang, bang, bang
But I’m way less sad
Adventure is out there
Come on guy
Bang, bang, bang
But it’s all I have
But I’m not dead yet so I guess I’ll be alright
