Fall Out Boy – Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On A Bad Bet lyrics

Mr. Sandman showing his beam
When he walks into the room the walls lean in to listen
Surfed out brain waves flick back and forth like old headlights sniffing model glue again
Head like a steel trap
Wish I didn't I didn't I didn't I didn't I didn't I didn't I didn't
I don't just want to be a footnote in someone else's happiness

Does your husband know the way that the sunshine gleams from your wedding band?
Does he know the way
Does he know the way
Of the crickets that would convince me to call it a night?

But I will never end up like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know
The last time you came through
Oh darling I know what you're going through
The last time you came through
Oh darling
Oh darling
Oh darling...

Aw
Tempest in a teacup
Get unique
Peroxide princes shine like shark teeth
It's a sign (it's a sign)
It's a sign (it's a sign)
It's a sign-what if you peaked early?

Does your husband know the way that the sunshine gleams from your wedding band?
Does he know the way
Does he know the way
Of the crickets that would convince me to call it a night?
Does he
Does he know the way I worship
Our love?
Does your husband know the way that the sunshine gleams from your wedding band?

But I will never end up like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know
The last time you came through
Oh darling I know what you're going through
The last time you came through
Oh darling
Oh darling
Oh darling...

Does your husband know?
Does your husband know?
Does your husband know?
Does he know, does he know, does he know? Oh oh...

But I will never end up like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know
The last time you came through
Oh darling I know what you're going through

    Basicly, (I my opinon).
    It's about a man that's in love with a married woman and then one day when he's attempting to sleep but prevented by his Insomnia (Can anyone say Pete?) he relizes that is wrong and yada-yada-yada.
    When he try's to explain that to her, she turns on him. Accuses him for her un-happiness, and want's nothing to do with him unless he stay's in the same 'relasionship' with him (*cough*'peroxide Princess'*cough*).

    I absolutely love this song.
    One thing about Fall Out Boy is that they don't want everything to be blatant and obvious. They want you to think. And sometimes you need to look at the lyrics from a different perspective to see what they're about. Mewlover13542 said what this song's about perfectly. "Does he know the way to worship our love?" means the love triangle, and that the husband may not be as in love with the woman as he previously was, or the woman is cheating and loves the other man more.
    'i will never end up like him, behind my back I already am' might mean that he truly does love the woman, but what's life without a little expirimenting? A little change every now and then? Everyone has to have a little mysterious or rebellious side to them, right? And even if he gets the girl in the end, would that change anything?
    So, with Fall Out Boy, not everything is as it seems. It may not make sense until you look at it differently, hear it with a new set of ears, so to speak. All in all, Fall Out Boy is more than the tabloids perceive them to be, and that's what I love about them.

    Xxxdarknessxxx; This song has to do with someone loving a certain person, but the person's already taken. And with the, "Darling, I know what you're going through" part, it's the someone talking to the person about a problem that the person has. Maybe unhappiness, or something. "The last time you came through", the someone's probably talking to the person about how her husband, or boyfriend got mad at her because he thinks she's cheating, and show she got through the fights.
    But, over-all, this song talks about a love triangle, basically.
    And the song title. They never really do relate to the song, as it seems, but the title itself makes perfect sense if you're a baseball fan. Cooperstown in a place in New York, possibly where baseball originated, and there was a baseball player who, on home-runs, had a popular thing of diving headfirst onto home base after the run was done. The bad bet part had something to do with the baseball players career, I believe. By the way, the only reason I got this assumption was because we had to look up and do a one-page report on a certain sport in school, and during my research, I read about the whole thing. Then, as I was reading, I began to piece together how the title would make sense, and I ended up with that.
    So, yeah. You have to think about most things having to do with any of fob's songs or titles before you fully understand them. That's what I love about fob's music. They always make it interesting, and I hate it when thinks are so apparent. ;]
