about

My Wilco-esque tribute to hook-ups, Whattaburger, and other goofy words. The guitar in the last four songs has been tuned to an open D, if you're trying to play along. Kinda makes it like playing a dulcimer.
Also, just so you know, this song is a lot of fun to play live. If I could only find a rhythm section to play it with me, I'd be playing it live right now.

lyrics

“Whattaboudit?”

Whatta? What’re you thinking?
Are you thinking about me? Am I everything that I should be?
I know, I know, that you could do better, better, but I wanna hear about what you’ve seen
My clothes are dirty but my hands are clean

I wanna see you, is there a place we can go?
Without the people we know?
Whatta? Whatta whattaboudit? Boudit?
I gotta feeling that I can’t sit still, tryn’a look classy ‘cause I think that you will
And even, even, if it doesn’t go well, oh well
It’s just a little bit of who I am, I’d like to love you if you think that I can

I gotta feeling, that you won’t let me go
Oh no no no oh

I know, I know, that you could do better, better, but I wanna hear about where you’ve been
My clothes are dirty but my hands are clean
