FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS


Jenny Lyrics

Bret: Hello.
Jemaine: ...Hi.
Bret: Hello, man sitting in the park.
Jemaine: I've just said hi, woman in the park.
Bret: Well how you doin'?
Jemaine: Mmm, um, good, thanks.
Bret: You're looking good.
Jemaine: ...Pardon?
Bret: I said you're looking good.
Jemaine: ...Fair enough.
Bret: Jenny.
Jemaine: Pardon?
Bret: Jenny.
Jemaine: No, I'm sorry, I think you've mistaken me for somebody else.
Bret: No, it's me, I'm Jenny. My name is Jenny.
Jemaine: Oh, you're--oh... Oh, I... ha ha ha. Oh--I thought--oh. What a hilarious misunderstanding. Nice to meet you, Jenny.
Bret: Oh, we've met before--quite a few times, actually.
Jemaine: Ah, oh, yes, of course we have. I meant it was nice to meet you the time that I met you. Where was it that we met, that time that I met you, when I met you?
Bret: At a party.
Jemaine: That's right, wasn't it one of those boring work parties?
Bret: No.
Jemaine: ...That's why I said "wasn't it". It was the party of a mutual friend... Was it?...Wasn't it?...Was it?...Wasn't it?
Bret: Yes, it was.
Jemaine: Yeah, I thought so... Bobby's?
Bret: No.
Jemaine: Doug's?
Bret: No.
Jemaine: D-dog's?
Bret: No.
Jemaine: Maxwell's?
Bret: No.
Jemaine: Andy's?
Bret: Yes, Andy's.
Jemaine: Yeah, Andy's party! That's right! Oh, Andy knows how to throw a party, doesn't he, Jenny?
Bret: Yeah, I love Andy's parties!
Jemaine: Oh, I love Andy's parties! What crazy parties! How is that guy, anyway?
Bret: She's good.
Jemaine: Oh... that's right. Andy hates it when I forget that.
Bret: We watched a movie.
Jemaine: Yeah... it was something like but not necessarily "Schindler's List". We watched it and we wept.
Bret: It was "Police Academy 4". We went for a walk.
Jemaine: On our feet, if I remember correctly.
Bret: We walked to the top of the hill and we ate sandwiches.
Jemaine: Ah, we'd just grab a sandwich and put it in our mouths. Oh, that's the only way to have sandwiches. Oh, Jenny, tell me, do you still walk? Do you still get into sandwiches in a big way?
Bret: Still walk a lot but I'm not eating as many sandwiches as back then.
Jemaine: ...Ohh.
Bret: Do you remember what we did up there at the top of the hill?
Jemaine: Kind of...
Bret: We were standing at the lookout.
Jemaine: Oh, I remember exactly what we did at the lookout. We just looked... out... across the city from our little spot on the hilltop. Oh, it was so pretty from way up there. We talked about how the lights from the buildings and cars seemed like reflections of the stars that shone out so pretty and bright, that night.
Bret: It was daytime.
Jemaine: ...The daytime of the night.
Bret: Do you remember what you said to me?
Jemaine: ...Not word for word, actually, Jenny, but I remember there were some verbs.
Bret: Well, you said, "meet me here in one year", you just needed some time to clear your head, and you seem to have done that.
Jemaine: ...La, la la la, la, la la la, la la la la la la la...
Bret: We have a child.
Jemaine: ...Pardon?!
Bret: We have a child.
Jemaine: Why didn't you tell me, Jenny? Why didn't you tell me that day when we went to the top of the hill and we made sweet, oh, how we made such sweet, sweet sandwiches? Does it have my eyes, my way with words? Does it look like me at all?
Bret: No, not at all, because we adopted him, I can't believe you don't remember, it was a very difficult process!
Jemaine: Uh, ah, oh...? Eh, uh, are you sure that was me, Jenny?
Bret: Yes, I'm pretty sure it was you, John.
Jemaine: ...I'm Brian.
Bret: Oh my god, I'm so sorry!
Jemaine: Oh, don't worry.
Bret: No, that's terrible!
Jemaine: Oh, don't worry!
Bret: Oh, how embarrassing!
Jemaine: Aw, don't worry, Jenny, actually I'm kind of relieved. That kind of thing just happens all the time. I just got one of those faces, I suppose.
Bret: So does John, he's got one of those faces as well.
Bret and Jemaine: (awkward laugher)
