Jenny
The Mountain Goats Lyrics


You roared into the driveway
Of our southwestern ranch-style house
On a new Kawasaki
All yellow and black

Fresh out of the showroom
Our house faced west
So the big orange sun
Positioned at your back
Lit up your magnificent silhouette
How much better, how much better can my life get?
900 cubic centimeters of raw, whining power, no outstanding warrants for my arrest
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, the pirate's life for me

I hopped on the back of the bike, wrapped my arms around you
And I sank my face into your hair
And then I inhaled as deeply as I possibly could
You were as sweet and delicious as the warm desert air

And you pointed your headlamp toward the horizon
We were the one thing in the galaxy God didn't have his eyes on
900 cc's of raw, whining power, no outstanding warrants for my arrest
Hi diddle dee dee, goddamn, the pirate's life for me

i love scrolling through old TMG comments and just admiring that sentiments from almost an entire decade ago still ring true to this day

They really have the most obsessive and sincere fan base. I should know. I've listened to almost nothing else for the last year

If someone responds to them, sometimes i what the original would feel. Getting a notification of a reply to a comment you made 9 years ago.

brendan campisi

The way he says 'no outstanding warrants for my arrest' sort of makes it sound like a rare situation.

Cash Nelson

That is the joke, yes. Good observation

brendan campisi I’d like to believe the song is about William Stanaforth Donahue from Fall Of The Highschool Running Back.

L. Ron Hoyabembe

I wish he would have said "no outstanding warrants for my arrest at this hour"
