Overview

"Slob" was originally part of the SS2K batch of songs, but was resurrected during the Maladroit sessions at the urging of fans. It seems to have been considered for single release, but did not acheive such a status.

Music video

In 2003, Karl Koch assembled a music video for the song out of prerecorded footage. The video contains lots of live performances and footage of Rivers Cuomo playing the song. Notably, the video contains footage of the then-existing Rivers Correspondence Board, which Cuomo frequented during the Maladroit album cycle.

Personnel

Lyrics

Leave me alone.
I won't pick up the phone.
And I won't listen to messages
Sent by someone who calls up and says.

I don't like how you're living my life.

Get yourself a wife.
Get yourself a job.
You're living in a dream.
Don't you be a slob.

Leave me again.
Don't hang out in my den.
Waiting for little clues to appear
That I drank some of granddaddy's beer.

Waiting for little clues to appear
That I drank some of granddaddy's beer.
