Barenaked Ladies Life, in A Nutshell Lyrics

Last updated: 12/04/2006 10:00:00 AM

Words & Music by Steven Page & Ed Robertson

When she was three
Her barbies always did it on the first date
Now she's with me
So there's never any need for them to demonstrate
'Cause she's like a baby, I'm like a cat
When we are happy we both get fat and still
It's never enough, it's never enough,
No, it's never enough

I don't tend to worry about the things that other people say,
And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way
Call me crazy, but it really doesn't matter
All that matters to me is she

Her life, in a nutshell
No way would she want it to change me
It's not that easy 'cause
My time is often decided for me
For me

She memorized
Every pencil crayon colour in the box
Her blue-green eyes
Compliment the burnt sienna in her locks
She's at the movies, I'm on the phone
When we're separated we're never alone, but still
it's never enough, it's never enough,
No it's never enough

I don't tend to worry about the things that other people say,
And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way
Call me crazy, but it really doesn't matter
All that matters to me is she

Her life, in a nutshell
No way would she want it to change me
It's not that easy 'cause
My time is often decided for me
For me

I fell down
With no one there to catch me from falling
Then she came 'round
And only her tenderness
Stopped me from bawling my eyes out
I'm OK
And that's why

Her life, in a nutshell
No way would she want it to change me
It's not that easy 'cause
My time is often decided for me

I don't tend to worry about the things that other people say,
And I'm learning that I wouldn't want it any other way
Call me crazy, but it really doesn't matter
All that matters to me is she
