  1. The lead singer was talking about the song's creation and said he used "free association" (when someone says "tell me the first thing that comes to your mind" ). So the lyrics are a little odd, but it's still a good song. Also, the lyrics about a woman he met are real life experiences he had.

  2. This song genuinely reminds of when I used to live in Los Angeles, homeless, and had to beg people for money just to eat. My version of a happy hour was when somebody would finally drop a couple of cents. They were very sad times.

  3. I don’t even really care if Weezer’s been making poppier music these past couple years. If I’m going to listen to mainstream-sounding pop, I’d rather hear it from Weezer than some other shitty artist who’s already on the radio 24/7.

  4. Weezer went from rock (Blue Album – Make Believe) to electro-pop (Raditude and Hurley) to rock and sorry for making electro-pop (EWBAITE) to even more electro-poppy songs (White Album to Black Album)

    Good job Weezer 😐👏

  5. [Verse 1]
I'm like Stevie Ray Vaughan on the stage, high on music
Teeth grindin', sweatin' under the lights
But then my boss comes
And she's crushin' me with a 20-ton weight
Just like in Monty Python
Somebody left on the sink, it's still running
My eyes are gonna overflow

[Chorus]
I need happy hour on sad days (on sad days)
I need happy hour, I can't wait (can't wait)

[Verse 2]
I'm like Ponce de Leon
Setting on a ship for the new world
Checking out the birds and flowers
Let's chill out on this island, I've been
Sucking on a lime and coconut (coconut)
Coconut (coconut)
I think I could stay here for the rest of my life
Please, don't ever make me go home

[Chorus]
I need happy hour on sad days (on sad days)
It's my happy hour, I can't wait (can't wait)

[Bridge]
Maybe I'll meet a scientist in sweatpants and a hair tie
We'll conversate about rare birds and MIDI keyboards
And we'll slow dance, head on my shoulder
Swayin' back and forth and
My friends look on and smile
Everything's gonna be alright

[Chorus]
It's my happy hour on sad days (on sad days)
I need happy hour, I can't wait (can't wait)
I need happy hour, to save me
Maybe I'll meet a scientist in sweatpants and a hair tie
We'll conversate about rare birds and MIDI keyboards
And we'll slow dance
I need a happy hour, I can't wait (can't wait)
