Lyrics

[Ok Laura, pardon my sloppy production techniques,
It's hard to find a place to balance this microphone see so it keeps on falling off,
Just a minute, you have no idea how difficult this is,
That was called Government Centre, and this next one is called the New Teller]

Well everybody in the bank line knows
That I got a crush on the new teller
It's plain as day, I might as well tell her
She looks my way and she knows quite well-er

Well everybody in the other lines
They smile at me the way I'm blushin'
I let them pass me for I'm not rushin'
I've got a crush on the new teller

She looks at me and she knows

There's only three in the other line
In my line, I count eleven
Well that's fine, for I'm in heaven
I got a crush on the new teller

She looks at me and she knows

Everybody in the bank line knows
That I got a crush on the new teller
It's plain as day man, I might as well tell her
She looks my way and she knows quite weller
