Overview

For a long time "Lisa" was believed to be part of Songs from the Black Hole as it was listed with the rest of the songs in the Recording History on weezer.com. A picture of a Songs from the Black Hole demo CD from Karl Koch also showed that "Lisa" was Track 12 on the track list. However, Cuomo denied this on his MySpace during the time he posted the sheet music to several SFTBH songs. When Alone III and The Pinkerton Diaries were announced 2011, it was revealed that the song was actually about Pat Magnarella's secretary.

Lyrics


Ring ring, who's there?
It's my favorite girl in the whole world
What's that? She wants for me to do something for Magna

Li- Li- Li- Lisa,
plea, plea, plea, plea-suh
Cut me a little slack
Oh Lisa, wish I didn't work for you
'Cause all we ever seem to do is business,
Read and sign, and fax this
Oh Lisa, wish I didn't work for you

Steve Perry and Seal
we're all in the same boat together
We're slaves who row
hopelessly in love with our master

Li- Li- Li- Lisa,
plea, plea, plea, plea-suh
Cut me a little slack
Oh Lisa, wish I didn't work for you
'Cause all we ever seem to do is business,
Read and sign, and fax this
Oh Lisa, wish I didn't work for you

Li- Li- Li- Lisa,
plea, plea, plea, plea-suh
Haven't we anything to say
Besides the news of the day?
Give me a little kiss

Oh, Bob, isn't there something you can do?
After all, doesn't Lisa work for you?

Oh Lisa, wish I didn't work for you
'Cause all we ever seem to do is business,
Read and sign, and fax this
Oh Lisa, wish I didn't work for you
