Need Musical Lyric Interpretation

Ok, most of you who read this are much smarter then me, especially when it comes to anything artistic or any kind of interpretation.

There is this song by Vampire Weekend (great band by the way), that I love but its driving me crazy. I have no idea what its talking about.

The song is Oxford Comma by Vampire Weekend. I know what an Oxford Comma is (serial comma) but other than that I have no idea what he is singing about so I’m hoping some of you can help.

Whats your interpretation of the song?
You can listen to it here..

  • Oxford Comma


    Oxford Comma

    Who gives a fuck about an oxford comma?
    I’ve seen those english dramas too
    They’re cruel
    So if there’s any other way
    To spell the word
    It’s fine with me, with me

    Why would you speak to me that way
    Especially when I always said that I
    Haven’t got the words for you
    All your diction dripping with disdain
    Through the pain
    I always tell the truth

    Who gives a fuck about an oxford comma?
    I climbed to dharamsala too, I did
    I met the highest lama
    His accent sounded fine
    To me, to me

    Check your handbook
    It’s no trick
    Take the chapstick
    Put it on your lips
    Crack a smile
    Adjust my tie
    Know your boyfriend, unlike other guys

    Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
    Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
    Why would you lie about anything at all?
    First the window, then it’s to the wall
    Lil’ Jon, he always tells the truth

    Check your passport
    It’s no trick
    Take the chapstick
    Put it on your lips
    Crack your smile
    Adjust my tie
    Know your butler, unlike other guys

    Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
    Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
    Why would you lie about anything at all?
    First the window, then it’s through the wall
    Why would you tape my conversations?
    Show your paintings
    At the united nations
    Lil’ Jon, he always tells the truth

    Top 10 Rock And Roll Songs of All Time

    As I was sitting around the pool with my father in-law this weekend we were listening to the Top 500 Rock and Roll songs according to 106.9 The Fox in Virginia Beach. Their list is completely bogus. When I heard Joe Walsh’s life’s been good at #232 I was immediately suspicious and after listening for a few hundred more songs I KNEW the list was terrible.

    After not being there to hear the top 10, I looked up the list and here is there top 10.
    10 Brown Sugar – Rolling Stones
    9 Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd
    8 Strawberry Fields Forever – Beatles
    7 Sweet Emotion – Aerosmith
    6 Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
    5 Satisfaction – Rolling Stones
    4 Free Bird – Lynyrd Skynyrd
    3 Hotel California – Eagles
    2 Stairway To Heaven – Led Zeppelin
    1 Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd

    I nearly barfed when I saw that so I had to come up with my own top 10.

    Here’s the real top 10.

    10. Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd
    9. Purple Haze – Jimi Hendrix
    8. Rock and Roll – Led Zeppelin
    7. Hotel California – The Eagles
    6. Won’t Get Fooled Again – The Who
    5. Light My Fire – The Doors
    4. Imagine – John Lennon
    3. Layla – Derek and the Dominos
    2. Satisfaction – Rolling Stones
    1. Stairway to Heaven – Led Zeppelin

    In the words of PTI host Tony Kornheiser “Thats it. Thats the List.”

    *Ps – I had to go all the way to 25 before I had my first Skynyrd song….

    What’s Your Top 10 rock songs of all time?

    Grammy Thoughts

    I sat here watching the Grammys and Oceans 11 on split screen and since everyone has seen Ocean’s 11 here are my thoughts on the Grammy’s

  • 1 too many extreme close-ups of Justin Timberlake’s face
  • shakira is smooooooooookin hot
  • how can ugly ass seal have such a hotass wife?
  • james blunt got hosed….repeatidly
  • mary J blidge wins everything
  • only nominee i recognized in the rap category was ludacris – thats wierd
  • Ludacris gave a special shout out Oprah and Bill O’Rielly…. WTF?
  • the build up to the performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers was unwarranted, such an average performance
  • did i mention how hot shakira was?
  • Jimmy Buffett Does Drugs? Get out!

    According to the report from French Custom Officials singer Jimmy Buffett was stopped at the border for allegedly having 100 ectasy pills on him as he was trying to catch a flight to Morrocco. Buffett who insisted they were vitamins said rather then fighting the charge and spending a night in a French jail he paid the $384 fine and went on his way but still denies there was any drugs. Yea right!

    According to the WRAL Poll where 10,000 people voted, a whopping 70% believe Jimmy was only carrying vitamins, which forces me to think that either 70% of WRAL’s readers think Buffett is the guy who invented Golden Corral or 70% of WRAL’s readers are idiots.

    You make the call!
