"One of those songs that I wrote in 10 minutes and can't seem to shake off. I like this song a lot, and find myself humming it about the house, as it is a very rare example of actual Pumpkins humor in a song. Recorded live to a 8-track cassette, with a few acoustic 12-string overdubs just to give it a little zing. This was our second choice for a take; the better take was lost when the engineer forgot to press 'record.'" -BC (Guitar World 1/97)

 

Lyrics

and i stumbled onto you
as you stumbled over me
and you say the fates were cruel
for throwing us together
i always loved you so
especially when you'd go
all the world must know
all the world must know
that i loved you so

it's a pity we're apart
it's a shame you broke my heart
but i've got a new girlfriend
she looks a lot like you dear
no one could ever do dear
all the world must know
that i loved you so
especially when you'd go
especially when you'd go
especially when you'd go
away and leave me here
all the world must know
