Overview

This song was confirmed to be on Raditude by Rivers Cuomo on August 21, 2009 in an interview with Billboard magazine. Patrick Wilson, the band's drummer and sometimes guitarist, plays the guitar solo on this song. The song is notable for featuring something closer to the classic Weezer sound on the otherwise more pop-oriented Raditude.

Wilson has named the song as a recent favorite in the band's catalog, and was known to have, along with Karl Koch, pushed for the song to be a single.

Band Commentary

Rivers: "Tripping Down the Freeway" I wrote like right after I wrote "Pork and Beans". It just sounds like a classic Weezer song. Actually it may sound similar to "Pork and Beans" 'cause it was written right at the same time. I don't know. [1]

Personnel

Lyrics

I told you that you had put on some weight
You went out with somebody named Kevin Greene
You preferred to go to a volleyball game
I told you that you couldn't be more lame

No way, we ain't gonna break up
We made a promise and our will won't fade out
Not just in '08 and '09
We'll be together from now until the end of time
You've got the Shirley Applebee look
I'm totally caught up on your hook
You know that we are gonna be okay
We'll stick together as we're trippin' down the freeway

You withheld the physical love I need
I said, "Hey, then I'm gonna play the field"
You broke down and told me you loved me true
I said, "girl, I gotta be with you"

No way, we ain't gonna break up
We made a promise and our will won't fade out
Not just in '09 and '010
We'll be together from now until the very end
You've got the Shirley Applebee look
I'm totally caught up on your hook
You know that we are gonna be okay
We'll stick together as we're trippin' down the freeway

No way, we ain't gonna break up
We made a promise and our will won't fade out
Not just in ‘010 and ‘011
We'll be together from now until we're up in heaven
You've got the Shirley Applebee look
I'm totally caught up on your hook
You know that we are gonna be okay
We'll stick together as we're trippin' down the freeway

Trippin' down the freeway
