Smash Mouth Lyrics


Well here I am at my front door
And oh what an odor is rising
It seems I've stood on this porch at lesser times
Now I've been down the road
You know the one you've dreamed about
And that's surprises you
And I'm sure you'll chalk it up to sell out crime
Home
What do you do when opportunity knocks
When success stalks and along comes fame
Do you open the door or watch in horror
Through the peep hole as they all go away
Lottery or poverty you're a commodity so what's it gonna be
I'm moving on I'm moving on
Home I'm going home I'm going home
Sitting in that same spot
There with the other lot whining
And you know this must be just a mirage
Ain't no doubt I ain't got the clout that's defined by you
But oil stains are all you're gonna find in my garage
Hey whatcha gonna do when the fun stops
When the boat rocks and the crew gets old
Make up your mind it's about time
Because at this time you're staying
Home
Chorus

Love this American band:

"What do you when opportunity knocks?
When success stops
And along comes fame
Do you open the door
Or watch in horror
Through the peep-hole
As they go away!


The lottery or poverty or a commodity,
So what's it gonna be?

I'm movin' on
I'm movin on home"

Has always been my favorite track off astro louge. So trippy and the lyrics hit me hard for some reason.

Antonio Phillips

It feels like you're in space

Astro Lounge is, definitly, one of the best albuns in history. Waste, Then The Morning Comes, the crashing hit All Star, Defeat You, Diggin' Your Scene, Can't Get Enough of you Baby, Road Man and other songs will not let me lying.

Yeah agreed! Fantastic band with great lyrics and musicians

mybrickhead

"what do you do when opportunity knocks, when success stalks, and along comes fame?"

A consistently strong album... This cut may be the most remarkable!
Who does the operatic voice??

Paul Snively

merrillb I believe it's re-pitched samples of Maria Callas, but I may be wrong.
