Appearances

Overview

"Turn Me Round" is first known to have been performed at soundchecks in August of 2002. The song was thereafter demoed multiple times throughout 2002 during demo sessions at S.I.R. Studios in 2002. Drummer Josh Freese filled in for Pat Wilson during some of these sessions. The song was performed live only once, at a concert in London on August 26, 2002, but no bootleg is known to exist. The song was thereafter seen as desirable by fans over the next several years. The song continued to be demoed in fall of 2003, once Weezer began working with Rick Rubin on the band's eventual fifth album, Make Believe. The and for a long time it was even a contender for Make Believe. The song was worked on at Cello Studios until December of that year, but was left ultimately unfinished. The song would remain unheard by fans for several years.

In 2009, a recording of the song appeared as track 11 on international releases of Weezer's seventh album, Raditude. It is unknown if this version is a solo Rivers Cuomo demo or if other band members were present.

Lyrics

The day that I first saw you
I knew I had to have you
You were as cute as could be
I needed a family around me

Over the course of a year
I slowly lost my interest
Now you're a pain in the ass
And I have got leave you

Now, turn me 'round
Turn me 'round, turn me 'round
Now, turn me 'round
Turn me 'round, turn me 'round

[...]the love around us
And so I made a promise
I tried my best to keep it
But then I tire of it

Tired of seeing your face
Cleaning up after your mess
Buying the food that you eat
And I have got to leave you

Now, turn me 'round
Turn me 'round, turn me 'round
Now, turn me 'round
Turn me 'round, turn me 'round

Come over again, come over again
Come over until I've had enough of you, my friend

Tired of seeing your face
Cleaning up after your mess
Buying the food that you eat
And I have got to leave you

Now, turn me 'round
Turn me 'round, turn me 'round
Now, turn me 'round
Turn me 'round, turn me 'round

Turn me 'round
