"Lawn Chair" is the first track from Weezer's 2022 EP, SZNZ: Summer.

Appearances

Overview

Cuomo first mentioned the song's title and shared lyrics on his Discord server on June 6, 2022. A month prior, a snippet of the song was shared as the background music of a video on Cuomo's TikTok account.[1]

Despite its appearance on the summer-themed SZNZ album, "Lawn Chair" interpolates the melody from the Largo movement of the "Winter" (L'inverno) concerto from The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi.[2]

Audio

Lyrics

Cool, kicking back in your lawn chair
You summon Gabriel and Michael
Hey guys, we should torture the humans
Yes, why don’t we do it
For our entertainment
'Cause heaven is so dull

Too many grapes
Too many harps
Too many smiles
Not enough weeping
They’ll suffer so that we can feel emotional release

Well I’m gonna stand up and call you out
You’re a punk-ass, oh my god, there is no doubt
Unsatisfied with rain, you made tears
And threw out your baby expecting we’d praise ye
And worship your name in a song

Now she’s choking back the tears (please tell us why)
Now she’s gasping for her breath (please tell us why)
'Cause she didn’t ever hurt no one
