about

Written 2001. Possibly Compost Shark's most popular and requested song. Back in the day this song was recorded and performed on electric guitar and drums, we switched it up a little for the new album.

lyrics

Golden brown locks
You wear polka dot socks
All the boys know your name
And they think that you're hot

Kathleen, pardon my stare
Polka dot socks and your hair
Oooohh

I took you out to Denny's
On a Sunday afternoon
The waitress made a mistake
And she gave you two spoons
We laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed
At the blunder she had made
I called you the next morning over toast and marmalade

Kathleen, pardon my stare
Polka dot socks and your hair
Oooohh

We talked on the phone from 8
Until quarter past 1
I asked if you were doing anything later
And you said, "No, let's go have fun"
Our date was set for 8 so I arrived
At 7:15
I opened the door
There you were
Kissin' on my best friend
Awww

Kathleen, pardon my stare
Polka dot socks and your hair
Oooohh

Kathleen, you broke my heart
I know I'm not that cute
And I know I'm not that smart
But I'm a prize
My mama told me so
And I'm a much better kisser than him
But I guess that
You'll never know

Kathleen, pardon my stare
Polka dot socks and your hair
Kathleen, pardon my stare
Those polka dot socks
Damn, those polka dot socks
Oooohh
