Captain Suburbia

I seem to have stumbled on what is quite possibly the greatest song ever recorded.

I’m a bird, I’m a plane,
I’m Captain Suburbia!
The weeds will grow
The grey will show
My garage will overflow
Lucky me! I’m Captain Suburbia!

I’m not too young for anything
Anymore.
I meet all my friends and neighbors
at the liquor store
I’m mechanically inclined,
Blissfully insane,
rescuing the sacred
from the jaws of the mundane

[…]

Lucky me! I’m Captain Suburbia!
I’m a bird, I’m a plane,
I’m Captain Suburbia!
The weeds will grow
The grey will show
My garage will overflow
Lucky me! I’m Captain Suburbia!

— Roger Clyne “Captain Suburbia”

There’s even a video…
