Barenaked Ladies – Raisins lyrics

Raisins come from grapes, people come from apes
I come from Canada
I came in first place in a nonexistent race
To rebuild the Parthenon

The Parthenon's in Greece or was it in Grease 2?
I can't keep my movies straight
When I make mistakes I use a lot of salt
'Cause salt makes m'steaks taste great

I don't want to be a bother
But I think the phone's for you

I've got orange pants, I wear them when I dance
But I don't get out that much
You are just too loud, I passed you in a crowd
Thank you and keep in touch

I don't speak Chinese, not even words like please
Thank you or how are you
But I can parle Français, I parled a bit today
It seemed like the thing to do

I don't want to be a bother
But I think you're in my seat
