Well half my friends are crazy and the others are depressed
None of them can help me study for my math test
I got into the classroom but my knowledge was gone
I guess I should have studied instead of watching 'Wrath of Kahn!'
This line could be about my life! I've gone into tests with nothing going through my head but, 'Kaaahhhhnn!'

I would buy you a green dress
But not a real green dress, that's cruel
Earlier in the song, they said the same thing about a fur coat.

I'd buy you a green dress,
but not a real green dress,
Why is a green dress cruel? Is he insinuating that she does not look good in green? And why a fake dress?

I'd buy you some art
A Picasso or a Garfunkel
The big joke is that the guy's name is Art Garfunkel! I laughed my head off when I figured it out!

She made me feel I was fourteen again
That's why she thinks it's cooler if we just stay friends...
Can't you just imagine what this guy's been doing to the poor girl? Very clever.

Chickity China the Chinese Chicken
You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin'
Maybe it's just me, but this line always makes me laugh. Plus, I think it's funny to think about this seemingly lethal chicken.

Gotta get in tune with sailor moon
Cause that cartoon has got the boom anime babes
That make me think the wrong thing
Yuck!!! dude, it's a cartoon... sounds like this guy has some weird fetish.

I'm like LeAnn Rimes
Because I'm all about value
What can they be suggesting about the lovely LeAnn? I notice she hasn't sued them for namedropping, so whatever it is it must be true.

Like Kurosawa I make mad films
'Kay, I don't make films
But if I did they'd have a samurai
He says he makes mad films... okay maybe not. But he envisions his masterpieces involving Japanese warriors, probably with cheesy action scenes too. Just picturing the movie makes me laugh.

Watching X Files with no lights on
Of the countless times I have heard this song, I laugh each and every time I heard this one line. Do these guys really watch the X-Files in the dark?

Maybe I'll hide out under there-
I just made you say underwear
Under where? I actually fell for that the first time I heard the song. Seems that he purposely wrote the song this way, prompting the listener to say or even think "Under where?" (would this be considered fourth-wall breakage?).
