about

Bitesize Oakland, California

From 1997-2009, the San Francisco Bay Area’s Bitesize brought a little bit of sickness to indie-pop, filling their otherwise perfect two-minute long pop gems with awkward stops and starts, weird bursts of guitar noise, quirky vocals, and lots of jumping up and down. The band released two critically acclaimed CDs (The Best of Bitesize & Sophomore Slump) and received college radio airplay nationwide ... more

Track Name: Headache Baby Yeah!
i had a bottle of asprin in my medicine cabinet
one hundred tablets and now they’re all gone

(sure i ate all your pills but it's no big deal)_
and now i feel cheated
(i'll give you two dollars so you can buy another bottle)
and now they're all gone
(there’s no excuse for acting really petty)
and now i feel cheated
(you're so pathetic you're giving me a headache)

you hate me
(no i don't)
you hate me
(no i don't)
you hate me
(shut the fuck up!)

you say: "what difference does it make who ate the bottle of asprin"
(you know i never said that so take it back)
but this is only the tip of the iceberg
it's the straw that broke my spine
(you're giving me a headache, yeah)
cause it's mine mine mine mine mine mine mine!!!
(you're giving me a headache, baby)

i had a bottle of asprin that was totally eaten
by someone i trusted and now they’re all gone

chorus!
Track Name: Jumpstart
you're like a jack pot
you need a jump start
you're such a sweet heart
i really mean that
you're like a magnet
like a 10 gallon hat

you've got those things in you head

just don't give me flack
cut me some slack
don't give me crap
like a taxi cab taxi cab
don't give me crap
don't give me crap
no!

you're like a jack pot
you need a jump start
so let's chit chat
i really mean that

chorus!
Track Name: The Bee's Knees
spilled on red creek cobblestone
('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt)
15 seconds alone
('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt)
oh you said that i'm ok
the most coolest thing that i ever heard someone say

devon almost smiled at me today
'cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt

you saw me tear my favorite pants
('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt)
you said i'm fine and i said thanks
('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt)
oh i'm so olive green
and you're the coolest thing that i've ever seen

chorus!

oh we're far beyond
the "hi how are you"s
we're almost one
in biker shorts
shoulder straps
water bottles
duffel bags
because my knees hurt...

chorus!
Track Name: In the Know
as you drove through illinois
i was super paranoid
sneaking out of our garage
head to toe in camouflage

but no! i’m never gonna let you know

while you we’re pumping gasoline
i spent a day in quarantine
writing run-on paragraphs
in the bedroom aftermath

but no! i’m never gonna let you know

your toothpaste
your mouthwash
your hairbrush
your dental floss
your washcloth
your lotion
your saline solution
all of your stuff is staring back at me
it makes me feel guilty but i’m not gonna crack…
Track Name: Astronomy
you sat on the blanket like you were stuck in a tarpit
(you stick out more than you realize)
the camera was a mess and i didn't know how to stop it
(turn the safety latch counterclockwise)
i looked through the lens and took a peek at your plum stockings
(laid out like a net of fire flies)
while you were reading steven hawking

(astronomy)
and i was soaked and you were freezing
like we stepped out of a mausoleum
the telescope was out of focus
but we were drunk and so we didn't notice
(astronomy)

(i don't listen to me myself)
i tried to take a photo but the instructions were all in spanish
(pongo su urino en el bano)
so we just romped in the sand until you told me that you were famished
(I'm as hungry as a rhino)
perhaps in the morning we can go out for breakfast
(two eggs and a liter of espresso)
then we can crawl along the beach to look for your necklace

chorus!
Track Name: I Killed Sting
i guess you call it homocide
if so than i'm guilty as charged
and i will live my life at large
because i killed sting

i have to admit i like outlandos d'amour
only because of the drums and guitar work
but what the fuck was up with those pretentious album titles
sting can go suck my zenyatta mondatta

call the police i killed sting
he didn't feel a thing

i stabbed him in the lung
while he was doing yoga
i asked him if it stung
he just grunted like abe vigoda

roxanne was an decent song
even though his lyrics are so dumb
he would throw words like mephistopheles
into songs for no apparent reason

1, 2, 3
i killed sting
it was as easy to learn as my A, B, C's
he didn't fight back because
everybody knows that rock stars can't act
i killed sting like the kwisatz haderach

call the police i killed sting
he didn't feel a thing

he sang that stupid song
with rod stewart and bryan adams
he deserved to die
just like rod stewart and bryan adams

i killed sting because i was jealous
he is so much smarter than the rest of us
you and me are just mere mortals
and sting used to be a high school english teacher
he's so well read (now he's dead!)
