KARAOKE IN KOREATOWN

Karaoke in Koreatown (single) (2022). Lyrics by Dan Zlotnick

She's fresh off the breakup

No need for makeup

The microwave is beeping so loud

Her lasagna's a little 

Frozen in the middle 

It's too late, she's gotta scarf it all down

He's done at the deli

His apron smelly

He burns the road to catch the train

This deodorizing driver

Well he was none the wiser

To the magic that the night would contain

Let's fall in love where they never turn the music down

A room full of drunk buffoons

Karaoke in Koreatown 

They're flipping through the songbook

Can't believe how it looks

They're body language sings like Adele

Hips and shoulders pressing

While fake Usher is confessing

It's looking like it's all going well

Cheap liquor pouring

The last song was boring

Maybe they should go take a turn

They picked out a winner

And sang for their dinner

They didn't even look at the words

Let's fall in love where they pass the microphones around

Our out of tune cocoon 

Karaoke in Koreatown 

Stock footage of the ocean

I think they got the lyrics wrong

I've got this crazy notion

That we'll keep singing when those lights turn on

So grab your drink and chug it

Let's get chicken nuggets

Before it's time to go back home

It's too late to sing another

But since we've got each other

We'll never have to sing alone

Let's fall in love where they never turn the music down

This room full of drunk buffoons

Karaoke in Koreatown 

Let's fall in love where they pass the microphones around

Our out of tune cocoon 

Karaoke in Koreatown
