Lyrics:Girls, I know you will understand this,
and feel the entrensic and incredible emotion
You
have just pulled over your head
the worn and warm sweater belonging to a boy

Now you
haven't had a passionate kissing session or anything
but you got to go on a camping trip with
him
and 8 other people from school,
and you practically slept together
your
sleeping bag right next to his

and you woke in the night to watch him as he
slept,
but you couldn't see anything cuz it was dark
so you just laid there and listened
to his breathing
and wondered if your heart might burst

The sweater has that
slightly goat-like smell
which all teenage boys posess
and that smell will lovingly
transfer
to all your other clothes

If you get to keep it for a few days
you can
sleep with it
but don't let your mom see
because she'll say what is that filthy
thing
and who does it belong to besides the trash man

So you have to keep it under
the covers with you
you can kind of lie it beside you
or wrap it around your waist
or
touch it on your legs
or whatever that's your business

Now if the sweater has like
reindeer on it
or is a funny color like yellow
I'm sorry you can't get away with a sweater
like that
Look for brown, or gray, or blue
anything other than that
and you know
you're dealing with someone who's different
and different is not what you're looking
for

You're looking for those teenage, Alpine ski chizzled features
and that sort of
blank look
that passes for deep thought
or at least the notion that someone's
home
You're looking for the boy of your dreams
who is the same boy in the dreams in all of
your friends

Now the sweater isn't going to fit you of course
you have to kind of
roll up the sleeves
in a jaunty way that says
this is the sweater belonging to a
boy
and the boy is a genuine
hunk-a-hunk of burnin' love
and this is not just some
hand-me-down
from your brother or your father

Monday, wear the sweater to
school
Be calm, look cute
Don't tell the dream you had about
the place the two of you
would
share when you get older
just be yourself
the best, cutest, quietest version
of yourself
Definitely wear lip gloss

He looks at you, and he looks away
and
then he walks away
and the smell of the sweater
hits you again suddenly like ape-scent
gloriola

and you get a note passed
to you by a girl in history
that says he
needs his sweater back
he forgot that you put it on
in the tent on Saturday
and he's
been looking for it

and you don't have to die of humiliation you know
you are a
strong person
and this is a learning experience
you can still hold your head up
high
as you run from the classroom
tearing the stinking sweater from your
body

you look at that sweater,
carefully, and you realize that love made
you
temporarily blind,
you got a secret now, honey
and though you would never
sink as low
as him
you could blab it all over the school
if you wanted

The label in that
sweater
said 100% acrylic
