Waiting
The Rentals Lyrics


I'm waiting
For something to come through
I'm hoping
I can write a real sweet tune

No passion
(ooo ooo ooo)
No warmth in these words
(ooo ooo ooo)
I'm trying
(ooo ooo ooo)
But have nothing to offer

I'm waiting
With nothing to do
I'm waaaiiiting , just a waiting on you

Sadly, just like before
It's lifeless and soulless, and yeah,
I fall way short

No beauty
(ooo ooo ooo)
No sweet melody
(ooo ooo ooo)
No four-part barber shop harmony

I'm waiting
With nothing to do
I'm waaaiiiting, just a waiting on you

I'm waaaiiiting on you
I'm waaaiiiting on you, you

I'm waiting
With nothing to do
I'm waaaiiiting just a waiting on you

Waiting on you (hoo ooo ooo)
Waiting on you (hoo ooo ooo)
Waiting on you (hoo oooo oooo)
Waiting on you (hoo oooo oooo)
Waiting on you, hoo oooo oooo
Waiting on you, hoo oooo oooo

I love how "Friends of P" was so deadpan and static, and then the Rentals followed it up with a video that's in constant motion. Guys falling through the ceiling, car chases, bike tricks, and an effin' helicopter. Amazing. These guys should've been huge.

Friends of P was basically the worst song they couldn't made a single

Remember hearing this song back when it was released. Am thrilled to hear it always. Read, Thomas C.Stuhr

Some random trivia:
Matt started The Rentals mainly because he wanted a project where he could work with Rachel & Petra from That Dog.
In the early day of both bands, Weezer proclaimed That Dog to be their favorite band.
Yes, that’s Maya on keyboards here. Before this gig, she was the original That Dog drummer (before they ever recorded anything).
The friendships and intertwining lives and careers of the members of Weezer / The Rentals / That Dog go back to their high school days.

One of my favourite time capsules.
This never aged (or only to become even better like a strange but great wine), never became old.

Why have i never seen this? Still my number one fave album! Saw The Rentals a few years back in Austin with a band called Atomic City. Made my frickin year! Thanks for the great music!

just played the riff over and over on guitar... sounded awesome.

I always like to think the helicopter that picks up Matt at the end of the video is Rivers taking him back to record Pinkerton.

MATT...GET IN HERE....I'M SAD!
