Shuffle Song Of The Day (12/3/18): “Soco Amaretto Lime” By Brand New

“Soco Amaretto Lime” is a song by the Long Island band Brand New, and appears on their 2001 debut album Your Favorite Weapon. Released during the early 2000’s explosion of pop punk, as well as during Brand New’s beef with Taking Back Sunday, this song strays off the path from the rest of the album by being a slow, acoustic song. Yet still holding true to some facets of pop punk, the song is about typical pop punk things like youth, drinking, falling in love etc. The title itself is actually the name of a drink: Southern Comfort, Amaretto liqueur, and a lime. I’ve never had it, and although it sounds pretty tasty to most people, I don’t think I could do it due to my personal vendetta against Southern Comfort. Everybody has that one alcohol that the thought of it makes you nauseous, and for me that’s Southern Comfort. Let’s just say I had one too many bad experiences with soco in my teenage years, to the point that simply being in the presence of it now makes me feel like I’m gonna turn into Lard Ass and re-enact the pie eating contest scene from Stand By Me. Maybe one day we can put our differences aside, but until then I’m gonna keep avoiding it like the plague. Otherwise, I’ll probably end up looking the same way Jesse does on the album cover.

LYRICS

Passed out on the overpass

Sunday best and broken glass

Broken down from the bikes and bars

Suspended like spirits over speeding cars

You and me were kings, over the parkway tonight

And tonight will go on forever

While we walk around this town like we own the streets

And stay awake through summer like we own the heat

Singing “everybody wake up(wake up)

it’s time to get down

(everybody, everybody wake up it’s time to get down)

And when I pass the bottle back

To Pete on the overpass tonight,

I bet we laugh

I’m gonna stay eighteen forever

So we can stay like this forever

And we’ll never miss a party

‘Cause we keep them going constantly

And we’ll never have to listen

To anyone about anything

‘Cause it’s all been done and

It’s all been said

We’re the coolest kids and we

Take what we can get

The hell out of this town

Find some conversation

The low fule lights been on for days

It doesn’t mean anyhting

I’ve got another 500 nother 500 miles

Before we shut this engine down,

We shut it down

I’m gonna stay eighteen forever

So we can stay like this forever

And we’ll never miss a party

‘Cause we keep them going constantly

And we’ll never have to listen

To anyone about anything

‘Cause it’s all been done

And it’s all been said

We’re the coolest kids and

We take what we can get

(you’re just jealous cause I’m young and in love)

Eighteen forever

(your stomachs filled up but you’re starved for conversation)

So we can stay like this forever

(you’re spending all your nights growing old in your bed)

And we’ll never miss a party

(and your tearin up your photos ’cause you want to forget… it’s over)

‘Cause we keep them going constantly

(you’re just jealous cause I’m young and in love)

And we’ll never have to listen

(your stomachs filled up but you’re starved for conversation)

To anyone about anything cause

It’s all been done

(you’re spending all your nights growing old in your bed)

And it’s all been said

(and your tearin’ up your photos’ cause you want to forget… it’s over)

We’re the coolest kids and we take

What we can get

Just jealous cause we’re

Young and in love

You’re just jealous cause

We’re young and in love [Repeat: x5]
