Hook

Lyrics

So long as I sing with inflection
That makes you feel I'll convey
Some inner truth or vast reflection
But I've said nothing so far

What happened to this band... Sing got a tape worm (lost weight), and they disappeared. ...... What the f**k, they had some good songs!
Great song but the lyrics on Pandora are messed up
Blues Traveler always cheers me up.:)
Yes! Emma Stone did kill it when she lip synced it on Jimmy Fallon!! Funny s**t!
The lyrics are screwed up on pandora...
Emma Stone destroyed Jimmy Fallon in a lip sync battle with this song a little while ago. Epic
Great song. Unfortunatel y is Pachelbel's Canon. I hate that song.

Not what you say but how you say it! YOU can't stand that I'm right about so many things so must discredit me, make me look crazy or stupid8P
Love this song
rbtwinky
I thought it was the heart brings you back too! I sang it that way for years! With inflection. The rest of it I pretty much mumbled through.

You guys if you are single go to match.com and you could start dating girls or boys in a week or longer but then you would problbaly get married within a year or maybe not
That's funny Eric!
In my first listening of the song, I mistook hook for heart and couldn't make out what John was saying for most of the rest of the song and thus began a great misapprehens i o n of one of my favorite songs. When I finally read the title, I must admit a note of sadness arose in me amidst the embarrassmen t and giggles. Really a lovely melody, the usual genius on harmonica, and, I think, the late Mr. Popper's best vocal effort. Clever lyrics, but I think it would be better as a love ballad.
Dat harmonica solo
The words couldn't be more true.
I will always loooove this song ;) Oh and mr. eric-----fuc k i t y fuckity up if ur rin tin tin or ann bolyyynnn--h a h a h a - - - P a n d o r a don't mind the cursin or I woulda been kicked outta here on day one---ur funny :)
Fork. Just saying.
Think if I keep on they will completely censor me
Utterly ridiculous That Pandora has censorship on our comments your kids know more about f**kin than you if the mere word bothers you that much
No one knows what that means We too stoopid to add the UC in F** K
F**k f**k f**k f**k f**k
Left facebook because of the PC BS people have the right to express themselves how they choose or we are supposed to be able too without fear of reprisal, first amendment,co u r s e Pandora just censorsed me for trying to say F**K they'll do it again watch
Great song
F**k PC don't wana hurt your feelings but talking around things in public, you'd express differently in private is what is wrong with this world.say what you mean, mean what you say,and don't worry if something thinks your mean

This song is so Awesomely hilarious! It is epic-ly catchy, which is exactly what they are making a parody of in the song's lyrics! Much skill!
How can you not like The Blues Travelers? Just great musicians !!
love
Loved Blues Traveler and still do! Brilliant all around. To the lyrics to the fact you don't realize what the song is about and that it is a parody about popular music in general till you listen real close. Well done boys! Well done!
Cause the hook brings you back
stewpid tune.
Nothing short of perfection
KICKEN GREAT END ALSO

I've heard this song several times on Pandora. I thought "this was a good song." I finally looked at the lyrics. Ha ha, nice. So I'm not the only person who believes this. (=

Genius.

I never knew what he was saying this whole time. XD Love it.
I had no idea that was what he was saying, it was sweet! :)
meismolly
I love this song. Love how he throws it in all of our faces that it truly doesn't matter what hes saying but how hes saying it, and its even more ironic that the lyrics are good even though his whole point is that the hook is what matters

I love the philosophy he is spitting! He is skooled! Exceptional lyrics! If all you are hearing is the hook, you are missing the point.
