the tape of love

One day when I was home in Bucks County I heard roaring laughter coming from the kitchen. It was my brothers. They were watching a music video on U Tube from "the Flight of The Concords" called "sello tape". Tonight I shared a moment of laughter via the phone with my little brother Josh, reminiscing the amazing lyrical content of the song. The depth and beauty of the chorus and verses is amazing. truly.

sello tape- flight of the conchords

Lives are like retractable pencils
If you push them too hard they're gonna break
And people are like paper dolls
Paper dolls and people, they're a similar shape
Hmm hmm hm
Love is like a roll of tape
It's real good for making two things one
But just like that roll of tape
Love sometimes breaks off before you were done
Another way that love is similar to tape
That I've noticed
Is sometimes it's hard to see the end
You search on the roll(search on the roll)
Search on the roll(searching round the roll)
Search on the roll(search)With your fingernail
Again and again And again and again And again.
Brown paper, white paper
Stick it together with the tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff
Brown paper, white paper
Stick it together with tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff.
People people
Chorus: Brown paper, white paper
Paper paper
Stick it together with tape
Paper paper
The tape of love
People people
People people
Pencil pencil
Pencil pencil
Paper paper
Put the pencil to the paper
Give the paper to the people
Let the people read about the sello tape
