"Oh Lisa" is a Green Album outtake that first appeared as a b-side to Island in the Sun.

Appearances

Overview

"Oh Lisa" was recorded during the sessions for The Green Album, and was at one time considered for placement on the album. However, it was relegated to b-side status shortly before mastering, and eventually turned up on multiple Green-era singles, as well as a wrestling soundtrack compilation. It was sometimes mistakenly conflated with the 1994 Rivers Cuomo song "Lisa" prior to the latter's release.

An early mix of the song, featuring a different vocal take, was leaked online prior to the album's release. It was one of fourteen unmastered Green mixes leaked.

Lyrics

Simple stages in my mind
Now I'm running out of time
I'm wanting to
I wanna do you

Taking stock of feelings stored
Running circles overboard
I'm wanting to
I wanna do you

Oh, Lisa
Can you love me again?
I'll be holding on 'til then

Only old enough to tell
What is right and what is hell
I'm wanting to
I wanna do you

And if this is our last goodbye
I would love to see you cry
I'm wanting to
I wanna do you

Oh, Lisa
Can you love me again?
I'll be holding on 'til then
