Enid
Barenaked Ladies Lyrics


Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

It took me a year to believe it was over
And it took me two more to get over the loss, whoa, whoa
I took a beating when you wrote me those letters
And every time I remembered the taste of your lip gloss

Enid we never really knew each other anyway
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But Enid we never really knew each other anyway

There were times when I wanted to hurt you
And there were times when I know that I did whoa whoa
There were times when I thought I would kill you
But can you blame me I was only a kid

Now tell me why we never respected each other
And tell me why I never believed that you were a person too
I always thought that you fancied my brother
I may not have liked it, oh but memory is a strange thing, oh, and Enid?
Enid I remember you

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But Enid we never really knew each other anyway

It took me a year to believe it was over
Oh, and it took me two more to get over the loss
I took a beating when I wrote you those letters
And every time you told me to get lost

Now it's not fair to say that it's
'Cause I was three inches shorter then
And it's not fair to say that it's 'cause
I was only fifteen years old
But maybe it's fair to say it was a lack of communication
I took a phone message, oh and speaking of communication
Oh, and Enid
Enid you got a cold

I can get a job I can pay the phone bills
I can cut the lawn, cut my hair, cut out my cholesterol
I can work overtime I can work in a mine
I can do it all for you
But I don't want to

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But Enid, we really never knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

For those curious what those background lyrics starting at 3:21 say:

I can teach you how to dance, how to sing, how to knit
How to make things that you never, ever made before
Enid, I can teach you how to use a cookie cutter
To make crazy things out of Play-Doh
Little houses, little farms, little accessories for your mom,
For your Barbie set, for your friends and your family
Enid, I can teach you how to snowmobile, cross-country ski, snow-shoe
But I don't want to

I've always wondered what Ed sings starting around 3:20-- but apparently it's this:

"I can teach you how to dance, how to sing, how to knit, 
How to make things that you never ever made before 
Enid, I can teach you how to use cookie cutters 
To make crazy things out of Play-Doh. 

Little houses, little farms, little accessories for your mom, 
For your Barbie set, for your friends and your family 
Enid, I can teach you how to snowmobile, cross-country ski, snowshoe, 
But I don't want to!"

Favourite part of the song :)

From what I have heard, they ate at a diner where their waitress’s name tag said “Enid”. They thought it was such a unique name, they invented a back story for her

Mark Boyes

Wow that's like that video with the basketball and the b***.
