About Pinch Me

"Pinch Me" is a song by Canadian rock band Barenaked Ladies. It was released as the first single from their 2000 album, Maroon, two weeks before the album was released. As such, "Pinch Me" is often regarded as an attempted follow-up to the hit single "One Week". This song became the band's final top-forty hit in the United States, peaking at number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 14, 2000. It also peaked at number two on Billboard's Adult Alternative Songs and Adult Top 40 charts. In Canada the single reached number four on the RPM Top Singles chart, becoming the band's most recent top-ten hit in their native country.

It's the perfect time of year
Somewhere far away from here
I feel fine enough, I guess
Considering everything's a mess
There's a restaurant down the street
Where hungry people like to eat
I could walk, but I'll just drive
It's colder than it looks outside

It's like a dream you try to remember but it's gone 
Then ya try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn 
When ya try to see the world beyond your front door
Take your time 'cause the way I rhyme's gonna make you smile 
When ya realize that a guy my size might take a while 
Just to try to figure out what all this is for

It's the perfect time of day
To throw all your cares away
Put the sprinkler on the lawn
And run through with my gym shorts on
Take a drink right from the hose
And change into some drier clothes
Climb the stairs up to my room
Sleep away the afternoon

It's like a dream you try to remember but it's gone (pinch me)
Then ya try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn (pinch me)
When ya try to see the world beyond your front door (I'm still asleep)
Take your time 'cause the way I rhyme's gonna make you smile (please God)
When ya realize that a guy my size might take a while (tell me)
Just to try to figure out what all this is for (I'm still asleep)

Pinch me
Pinch me
'Cause I'm still
Asleep
Please God
Tell me
That I'm still asleep

On an evening such as this
It's hard to tell if I exist
If I packed a car and leave this town
Who'll notice that I'm not around?
I could hide out under there
I just made you say, "Underwear"
I could leave but I'll just stay
All my stuff's here anyway

Like a dream you try to remember but it's gone (pinch me)
Then ya try to scream but it only comes out as a yawn (pinch me)
When ya try to see the world beyond your front door (I'm still asleep)
Take your time 'cause the way I rhyme's gonna make you smile (please God)
When ya realize that a guy my size might take a while (tell me)
Just to try to figure out what all this is for (I'm still asleep)

Try to figure out what all this is for (I'm still asleep)
Try to see the world beyond your front door (I'm still asleep)
Try to figure out what all this is for
