Ben Folds Kate Lyrics

She plays wipe out on the drums
The squirrels and the birds come
Gather around to sing the guitar
Oh I... have you got nothing to say
When all words fail she speaks

Her mix tape's a masterpiece
Walks through the garden
So the roses can see
Oh I... have you got nothing to say

And you can see the daisies
In her footsteps
Dandelions, butterflies
I want to be Kate

Everyday she wars the same thing
I think she smokes pot
She's everything I want, She's everything I'm not
Oh. I...

Have you got nothing to say
She never gets wet
She smiles and it's a rainbow
And she speaks and she breathes

I want to be Kate
Down by the Rosemary and Cameron
She hands out the Bhagaved Gita
I see her around every couple days

I want to meet her so that
I can say... hey Kate
