So, What is Patrick Monahan Singing in “50 Ways…”?

You’re in a good mood driving down the road or sitting in your office singing along to your favorite song, until you get to that little stanza that you end up singing, “50 quays to say Dubai…

We’ve all done it, but with the internet, finding those vexing lyrics has gotten so much easier. For example, a song you hear a lot on KODM is Train’s ’50 Ways To Say Goodbye’. Here are the lyrics to the song:

My heart is paralyzed 

My head was oversized

I’ll take the high road like I should

You said it’s meant to be

That it’s not you, it’s me

You’re leaving now for my own good

 

That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say

 

She went down in an airplane

Fried getting suntanned

Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand

Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!

She met a shark under water

Fell and no one caught her

I returned everything I ever bought her

Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies

And ways to say you died

 

My pride still feels the sting

You were my everything

Some day I’ll find a love like yours (a love like yours)

She’ll think I’m Superman

Not super minivan

How could you leave on Yom Kippur?

 

That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say

 

She was caught in a mudslide

Eaten by a lion

Got run over by a crappy purple Scion

Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!

She dried up in the desert

Drowned in a hot tub

Danced to death at an east side night club

Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies

And ways to say you died

 

I wanna live a thousand lives with you

I wanna be the one you’re dying to

Love…but you don’t want to

 

That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say

That’s cool, but if my friends ask where you are I’m gonna say

 

She went down in an airplane

Fried getting suntanned

Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand

Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!

She met a shark under water

Fell and no one caught her

I returned everything I ever bought her

Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies

 

She was caught in a mudslide

Eaten by a lion

Got run over by a crappy purple Scion

Help me, help me, I’m no good at goodbyes!

She dried up in the desert

Drowned in a hot tub

Danced to death at an east side night club

Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies

And ways to say you died

 

Train gets 10 points for using the words Yom Kippur in a pop song.
