Gary works at the Great Escape and he wants to make Lauren his girl
She sorts VHS tapes, stuff like True Romance and Wayne’s World
She’s a New Wave Queen, a hipster's dream with long, dyed hair
He’s a jaded fuck, down on his luck, but this
Girl makes him feel so good

Gary knows that he’s a six, and Lauren on her best days is an eight
But he’s told himself today’s the day, no matter what he’ll ask her on a date
He’s got sweaty palms, pretends he’s calm and goes to her
He asks, how bout the park just before dark, and Lauren, she says, says
why not?

Oh, why not? Why not go to the park with Gary?

Lauren does her makeup, she tells her boyfriend she is going out
Gary just assumed that she was single, well now he’ll figure it all out
In an awkward miss, goes for the kiss, and gets shot, way down
She tells him that she’s can’t, she’s got a man, but she’d love to just be friends. oh Gary; forever friend zoned
