Oh Yeah.
All Right.
First Verse-

Somebody's Heiney is crowning my icebox.
Somebody's cold one is giving me chills.
Guess I'll just close my eyes.

Oh yeah.
All right.
Feels good.
Second Verse-

Flip on the Tele... Wrestle with Jimmy.
Somethin' is bubblin' behind my back.
The bottle is ready to blow.

Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
Your drug is a heartbreaker.
Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
My love is a life-taker.
Verse 3-

I can't confront you, I never could do...
That which might hurt you.
So try and be cool, when I say:
This way is a waterslide away from me That takes me further every day
Be cool.

Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
Your drug is a heartbreaker.
Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
My love is a life-taker!
Verse 4-

Dear daddy, I write you in spite of years of silence.
You cleaned up, found Jesus, Things are good also I hear.
This bottle of Stevens awakens ancient feelings...
Like father, Step-Father...
The sun is drowning in the flood! Yeah Yeah-Yeah-Yeah-Yeah

Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
You drug is a heartbreaker.
Say it ain't so a-woah-woah.
My love is a life-taker.

    "Say It Ain't So" is about how a child's life is affected by his alcoholic father, inspired by Rivers Cuomo coming home to a bottle of beer in the refrigerator and believing his parents split up when he was four because his dad was an alcoholic.

    "Say It Ain't So" is about how Rivers' life is affected by his absent, alcoholic father. The song was inspired by 4 year old Rivers' memory of coming home to find an untouched bottle of beer in the refrigerator (Hiney = Heinekin, one of the worst tasting commercial beers ever). Because his dad was an alcoholic, he came to the conclusion that his father must have split on him.
