mime to be a smile_     |   home
roll up and shine_   |   the bartender and the thief_   |   hurry up and wait_   |   pick a part that's new_   |   just looking_   |   half the lies you tell ain't true_   |   i wouldn't believe your radio_   |   t-shirt suntan_   |   is yesterday, tomorrow, today?_   |   a minute longer_   |   she takes her clothes off_   |   plastic california_   |   i stopped to fill my car up_
hurry up and wait_
we wait to wake to get a ride in the rain
buy a ticket, they can check, we can claim
so we don't spend what's our own
for a seat, a place to stop, a green light, a red cross
they run around naked doing old things like the ones before

for a break so you can take a little something
that'll make your next break
come a little quicker than the ones before

for an answer, spy a sweet dancer
as she walks from the door of the hall
wish you waited for your wedding vows

so hurry up and wait, but what's worth waiting for?
so hurry up and wait, but what's worth waiting for?

we wait to get warm, the car starts from cold stall, to make a first move, magazines made the rules to make us lose
for your dream man, the house you could both plan, the car in the sales ad, the wet dream with the man you wished that you had

so hurry up and wait, but what's worth waiting for?
so hurry up and wait, but what's worth waiting for?

a watched pot never boils, sugars seconds to dissolve
see your appetite lost, foods relevance lost inside
we wait to get there, and when we get there
we wait around for anyone to tell us what we even got there for

so hurry up and wait, but what's worth waiting for?
so hurry up and wait, but what's worth waiting for?
what's worth waiting for?
what's worth waiting for?
what's worth waiting for?
what's worth waiting for?

so join the queue, me and you, wait in line
it takes our time to be satisfied
