Blink-182 All The Small Things Lyrics

Last updated: 06/04/2012 11:00:00 AM

All the, small things
True care, truth brings
I'll take, one lift
Your ride, best trip
Always, I know
You'll be at my show
Watching, waiting, commiserating
Say it ain't so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Na, na...
Late night, come home
Work sucks, I know
She left me roses by the stairs, surprises let me know she cares
Say it ain't so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Na, na...
Say it ain't so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Keep your head still, I'll be your thrill, the night will go on, my little windmill
Say it ain't so, I will not go, turn the lights off, carry me home
Keep your head still, I'll be your thrill, the night will go on, my little windmill

"All the Small Things" is a song by American pop punk band Blink-182. It was the second single released from the band's third album Enema of the State. Written by guitarist Tom DeLonge for his girlfriend, the song is one of Blink-182's most popular songs and is often considered their signature song.

The single, released in January 2000, peaked at number 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart and reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. "All the Small Things" was the band's first number 1 hit and it exposed the band to a whole new audience.

Although one source states the single was released in December 1999, most sources agree the single was released January 18, 2000. The song peaked at number 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest Blink-182 has received on that respective chart. The song also charted very well in other countries, most notably in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number 2. The single was certified platinum in Australia.

The single was received positively, and labeled "a pop punk watershed" by Jonah Weiner of Blender. The song has been a staple of Blink's live set since its heyday.

"All the Small Things" was released on the UK compilation album Now That's What I Call Music! 45 (2000) and the US edition of Now That's What I Call Music! 4 (2000). The song was used in 1999 in the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (season 4, episode 9 - "Something Blue") before it was released on CD, and in Boston Legal (season 1, episode 14 - "Til We Meat Again"). The song is played during the end credits of the 2000 film, Charlie's Angels. It can be heard in the 2002 film Clockstoppers, and is also present on its soundtrack. Alvin and the Chipmunks covered the song for their 2008 album Undeniable. The song has been used frequently in music video games. It was released as downloadable content for Rock Band and Guitar Hero 5, and is part of the setlist for Guitar Hero: On Tour and the iPhone version of Rock Band. Covers are present in the video games Rock Revolution and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

When originally released, the song was performed on Saturday Night Live along with "What's My Age Again?" on January 8, 2000 on the season 25 episode hosted by Jamie Foxx. As a testament to the song's lasting popular impact, it was performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno twice: first on October 15, 1999, and second after Blink 182's reformation on May 19, 2009. A British television series named after the song was broadcast on BBC One in 2009. In one of the hit animated sitcom Family Guy's star wars tributes, specifically the latest "It's a Trap!", Peter can be heard singing the song after Quagmire states the Ewoks "Seem to think I'm some sort of god.", to which Peter ironically exclaims "And they seem to think I'm Sum 41!" before proceeding to sing the first line of "All the Small Things".
