"It's Easy" (originally "It's So Easy") is a song written by Brian Bell in 2003 for Weezer. It was finally released as an iTunes Exclusive Bonus Track with the purchase of The Red Album.

History

An Album 5 Demo

"It's Easy" was first introduced to the band in an August 3 2003 rehearsal in which several other songs from other members were played. At the time, it was called "It's So Easy." Prior to its release, Karl Koch listed the song as one of his top five favorite unreleased Weezer songs on the Albumsix forums. It was recorded as an acoustic office demo.

Release

"It's Easy" was finally released on June 3 2008 with the release of Red. In an Albumsix chat, Karl was asked why the song was released. Karl simply stated, "I have a way of reminding people of their former glories." It is assumed that this is also why I Can Love was released.

Live Performance

"It's Easy" was, to the surprise of fans, performed live by the band in the acoustic 2008 AOL Sessions. Some lyrics were slightly different, likely changed between the time the demo was recorded and the AOL sessions.

Lyrics

Let's not be mean to each other
There's no need for name-calling
There's no need for chain-ballin'
Let's be nice, babe. It won't kill us

Let's just be kind to each other
There's no need to argue further
There's no need to change up order
Let's be nice, babe. It won't kill us

I caught you, I called you on it
You lied to me, you lied all about it
Give it time, give it up
Draw the line, raise the cup
It's easy not to be mean

Let's work it through and discuss it
There's no need for the cussin'
There's no use for ball-bustin'
Let's be nice, babe. It won't kill us

All this time we could've got along
Instead we bitch and moan
You done me wrong
Give it time, give it up
Draw the line, raise the cup
It's easy not to be mean

I caught you. I called you on it
You lied to me, you lied all about it
Give it time, give it up
Draw the line, raise the cup
It's easy not to be mean

It's so easy
