"You make the rain clouds disappear..." and my obsession with Weezer

Weezer is by far my favorite band. I could've done this entire A to Z challenge with topics solely revolving around my obsession love for Weezer.
A Sampling? you ask.
Sure.

A - AOL Sessions with Weezer
B - B.o.B. featuring Rivers Cuomo in "Magic". This is the best song for working out.
C- Cruise, the Weezer Cruise. They had one last January. I couldn't afford to go. =(
F - Fonz, featured in the Buddy Holly video "Exactamundo"
G - Green Album. This is the show I saw live back in 2001. Along with Aquabats, it was the best show ever. Of course, I'm biased.
H - "Holiday" - A Christmas song just for nerd rock lovers.
I - "I'm a creep." - Cover to Radiohead's "Creep". Brilliant.
K - "King"
L - Lost cast member, Hurley, is the cover art for their album Hurley.
P - "Pink Triangle" - For those awkward moments when you discover you were hitting on someone who isn't into because of your sex.
R - Rivers Cuomo. I heart him. How could you not love that the rippling nerd muscles on that guy. And those glasses! Yum. (None of that was sarcasm. Swearzies.)
S - Snuggies. Weezer has their own Snuggies. Awesome.
U - "Undone". Really, do I have to explain the epic-ness of that song?
W - Weezer.com

Anyway, back to my point. My all time favorite Weezer song is "Miss Sweeney". And I even wrote this poem in Miss Sweeney POV. To maximize your Weezperience (see what I did there? hehehe), click on the youtube link, then read the poem as the song plays. Note that the white words are the song's lyrics and the red words are my additions.

Enjoy.



Bzzz... Bzzz...
Hi, Hello, Miss Sweeney?
Could you please come in my office for a second?
Wearing heels and my Navy business suit.
A touch of crimson lip gloss. 
Push back my glasses, then enter your office. 
I'm heading home for the day
And I thought it would be good for you and me to check in
I met with the gal from Expo
And they do have the "slab" cabinets in white
She thinks we can take the measurements
Down at the site
If we do that, we'll be just fine, Miss Sweeney
Nod. Twice.
Tuck a loose chunk of hair behind my ear.
Look up over my notes.
A half smile.

That's all I've got to say to you at this time, Miss Sweeney.
Actually there's one other thing on my mind
Girl, you make the rain clouds disappear 
You're gripping my shoulders.
My legs wobble, like licorice whips.
The sun always shines when you're near
Heart palpitations.
Breath on my cheek.
I'm waiting until you love me
You release me.You look away, fists clenched.
Longing pierces my core.
I'm so sorry Miss Sweeney
I don't know where that came from
I think I was overcome by a spontaneous emotion
“I want…”
Don’t speak. Don’t say it.

Anyway, the cash deposit of $5, 000 will need to be sent to the property owner tomorrow
If there are any problems with the deposit or contract
“But…”
The fire flickers. Threatens to extinguish.
“I…”

Don't be afraid to holler
I don't want to have to approve each stinking dollar
That we borrow
Aww forget it, Miss Sweeney
You, you make the rain clouds disappear 
 In your arms again.
Enveloped by your hands.
The sun always shines when you're near
Body pressed to body.
I'm waiting until you love me

I love you.
Miss Sweeney, I got to admit the truth
I am totally head over heels in love with you
Every day you come to the office looking fine
Navy business suit clinging tightly to your spine
“Your laugh. The light in your eyes. In your smile...”

You ask me if I'm ready to get down to work
Sweeney, baby, I'm ready... be my...
“I…”

Girl, you make the rain clouds disappear
The sun always shines when you're near
I'm waiting until you love me
Girl, you light the skies of my life
I swear I will make you my wife
I'm waiting until you 
“I love you.”
love me

    1. We should be a club of Weeznerds. Next Weezer cruise, you're coming with me.

      I hope they do another one.

  2. I've never heard that before. I read the lyrics before I listened, and it's not what I was expecting at all! I think it would grow on me. On the other hand, I do like Buddy Holly - it's catchy and the video is so cool, and it's the only song I know of theirs.
