Comin' Home (Left My Broken Heart in Carolina) is a pre-Blue demo by Rivers Cuomo.

Overview

Cuomo sings in a twangy, southern voice and plays a banjo throughout the song, which provides for a very goofy, country feel. It was most likely simply a goofy song recorded only for fun and never seriously considered for any type of album.

Personnel

Rivers Cuomo - lead vocals, guitar, banjo, percussion, bass

Lyrics

I met a girl in Kalamazoo
She was doin' what you know she was doin'
She's got hair on her toes, hair in her nose
She's the one for me
Can't you see?
But when she walks away
She's got more games to play

Left my broken heart in Carolina
Forgot my broken toe in Alamo
Put the turkey in the oven, please dear
Now I won't be long, I'm comin' home

Oh my God, I've got my britches on backwards (She's got more toes than a cow)
I don't know what to do with the rod on the reel (She’s got hair on her toes, hair in the nose.)
How does it feel with the cockroach on your back, son? (Eggs in a basket, 20 cents a dozen)
But when we get home, all my little brothers they moan and moan

Left my broken heart in Carolina
Forgot my broken toe in Alamo
Put the turkey in the oven, please dear
Now I won't be long, I'm comin' home

Now it won't be long, I'm comin' home
