Overview

"Souvenirs, Novelties, Party Tricks" recorded on the day Weezer was signed to Geffen. Adam Orth is also featured on this recording. Throughout the song, Cuomo sings with a thick, goofy accent. It also features a fiddle solo. The song was presumably inspired by the 1984 film Top Secret!

Lyrics

Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks
Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks

Come and get your dog poo
Or your trick gum
Careful when you grab it
It might snap your thumb
Look at all the goodies I've got here today
Come and fool your friends with a can of bug spray

Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks
Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks

I will sell you vomit
Or X-ray specs
Look and see the girlies
Without having sex
Come and see the goodies that I have today
You might even run into the Mel Torme

Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks
