Everyone gather round now
Sing us a song
Just in case by tomorrow
It happens he's gone
For two weeks and seven days
Our fair foreign friend
I have this feeling
We might never see steven again

Chorus

We thought he was gone
But he's come back again
Last week it was funny
But now the joke's wearing thin
Everyone knows now
That every night now
Will be steven's last night
In town

He's charmed [live:fucked] everyone here
Except tamara easter
Who later revealed to him
Her innermost secrets
Won us over with stories
About linda mccartney
Lost points with the ladies
For saying he couldn't love a
Woman with cellulite

Chorus
[on demo: I'm wondering how
Your decorations are standing up.
In fact, the lawn's looking a little
Shabby, but we can discuss that later.
How's the chimney stack doing?
And the door arches, they're ok? ]
We were talking 'bout something
Seems like was funny
Then steven got quiet
I think steven was mad [live: pissed]
Maybe he wasn't mad
But we felt very strange in
The moment
But the moment was passed
And forgotten about

Chorus

    He had this friend, who over stayed his welcome. He kept coming back and finally BenFoldFive told him off and he left.
