What Would You Say ~ Dave Matthews Band

Dave Matthews Band, sometimes shortened to DMB, is a U.S. rock band formed in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1991. Founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer/backing vocalist Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore. Boyd Tinsley was added to the band as a violinist soon after the band was formed. Moore died suddenly in August 2008 due to complications from an ATV accident. Grammy Award-winner Jeff Coffin, of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, has since filled Moore’s spot as the band’s saxophonist. Rashawn Ross and Tim Reynolds have also become full-time touring members of the band. With musicians who each have roots in differing genres, including jazz, classical, soul, rock, bluegrass, and hip-hop, the band has come together to create an eclectic sound which has earned them fans from a variety of quarters.

What Would You Say

Up and down the puppies’ hair
Fleas and ticks jump everywhere
‘Cause of original sin

Down the hill fell Jack and Jill
And you came tumbling after
‘Cause of original sin

Wipe away the tears
Drink a hope to happy years
And you may find
A lifetime’s passed me by

What would you say
Don’t drop the big one
If you a monkey on a string
well Don’t cut my life line
If you a doggie on a chain
Don’t bite the mailman
What would you say

I was there when the bear
Ate his head, thought it was a candy
Everyone goes in the end

Knock knock on the door
Who’s it for, theres nobody in here
Look in the mirror my friend

I don’t understand at best
I cannot speak for all the rest
at mornin rise a lifetime’s passed me by

What would you say
Dont’ drop the big one
If you a monkey on a string
well Don’t cut my life line
If you a doggie on a chain
Don’t bite the mailman
What would you say

Every dog has its day every day has its way
Of being forgotten – “Mom, it’s my birthday!”
whatd you say (then what could you say)
what would you say

I was there when the bear
Ate his head, thought it was a candy
Everyone goes in the end

Knock knock on the door
Who’s it for, theres nobody in here
Look in the mirror my friend

I don’t understand at best
I cannot speak for all the rest
at mornin rise a lifetime’s passed me by

what would you say?

Crash into Me

In his performance on VH1 Storytellers, Matthews described this song as being about “the worship of women,” albeit from a voyeur’s perspective, and subsequently does a humorous impression of the woman being watched through the window complaining to the police. He ends by saying that he wrote this song instead of getting arrested.

You’ve got your ball
you’ve got your chain tied to me
tight tie me up again
who’s got the claws in you, my friend?
into your heart
I’ll beat again
sweet like candy to my soul
sweet you rock
and sweet you roll
lost for you
I’m so lost for you
Aw when you come crash…
Into me
and I come into you
I come into you
aw yeah
in a boy’s dream
in a boy’s dream
aw yeah

touch your lips just so I know
aw in your eyes, love
it glows
so I’m bare boned and crazy
for you
aw when you come crash into me
baby I come into you
in a boy’s dream
in a boy’s dream
aw yeah

oh now I’ve gone overboard
and I’m begging you to forgive me
lord in my haste
but I’m holding you so, girl
close to me
and you come crash into me
baby I come into you
hike up your skirt a little more
show the world to me
baby yeah
hike up your skirt a little more
show the world to me
in this boy’s dream
oh I watch you there
through the window when I stare
at you wear nothing
but you wear it’s so well
tied up and twisted
the way I like to be
for you, for me
come crash into me
oh yeah
come crash into me baby

crash into me
crash into me
crash into me

you know, well
I’m the king of the castle
you’re the dirty rascal
crash into me
oh say you crash into me baby
and i am swimming in your seas and in your oceans
I can feel the wave crash into me
oh yes, I see the wave crash into me
oh yes, I feel the wave crash into me

I will be your Dixie chicken
if you be my Tennessee lamb
and we can walk together
down in Dixie Land

Crash into me
crash into me
crash into me
crash into me
