Overview

"Let's Sew Our Pants Together" was, according to the Catalog O' Riffs, written near to the formation of Weezer around February or March of 1992.

Lyrics

Handwritten lyrics for "Let's Sew Our Pants Together"
Lets sew our pants togethe2.jpg

Raise the window
It's getting hot in here
All these breathers
And all of these suckers

Shake my hand now
Pleased to meet you
Your skin is pretty
But underneath you're a monster

Are we friends now?
Am I your brother?
Can we bleed together?
Are we lovers?

Let's sew our pants together
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Let's climb right in forever
6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Then won't we all be so clever?
If we sew our pants together

Wake the next morning
One below the waist
But you want poached eggs
And I want to go to the bathroom

What do we do now?
What do we make of this?
Can my blood flow
Apart from your stitch?

Let's sew our pants together
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Let's climb right in forever
6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Then won't we all be so clever?
If we sew our pants together

Let's set our hair on fire
Let's throw our hearts in the mire
Let's sell our eggs to any buyer
We've made a liar of desire

Let's sew our pants together
Let's sew our pants together
We've made a liar of desire
We've made a liar of desire
We've made a liar of desire
We've made a liar of desire
