Hi guys,
I was looking through some old files from high school and found a document in which I'd been trying to write down the lyrics from A Common Chorus (from The Bundles) a few years ago. I've been listening to it again and I just can't figure out a few ends of sentences of Jeff, when Kimya is singing over it. Maybe you know what's being said? Maybe Jeff himself can enlighten me? I'd like to cover the song one day but if I don't know what to sing it's a bit sloppy...

A common chorus

J:Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends
J:Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends
J:Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends
J:Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends

J:Something for everyone, a dial and a telephone (...?)
K:Hey good to see you, Avery Tody (?) said for me to say hello to you from Matt
J:A comment book, a letter home, a T-shirt I wanna buy (...?)
K:And no matter where you go, don't forget about your friends, don't forget about your friends

J:Something for everyone, a picture and a sing-along, a mix-tape with your demos on and all
K: Home is so far away, and everything is changing. It's so strange to see it all re -arranging
J:Stuff I saw while I was there, stuff I ate while I was there, the feeling I'm still glad about (...?)
K: Fuck the way people feel, it's all still real, don't forget about your friends

J:Something for everyone, a dial and a telephone, a valentine day’s card from mom, a hat (?)
K: The room lights up the sky, and the clouds all head for Kansas.
J:A movie and a long walk home, a wish to not feel all alone. Trying to stop fucking about (...?)
K: Leaving you alone in Texas don't forget about your friends, don't forget about your friends

Together: Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhhhhhhhhh
Ohhh, Ohhh, Ohhhhhhhhhh

He remembers all their names
He ain't heavy, he's my brain
Here or there, you can't ignore us
'Cause we sing a common chorus

K: The cowboys and the punkers
J:The water that I jumpstered
K: The SUVs and conquers
Together: The fuckers that I conquered!

A common chorus
A common chorus
A common chorus
That you make up while I go take a nap
A common chorus
A common chorus
A common chorus
That you make up while I go take a nap
That you make up while I go take a nap
That you wake up when I go take a crap

J: Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends
J: Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends
J: Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends
J: Something for everyone
K: Don't forget about your friends

I don't remember a lot of the other stuff but I know that Kimya's line was "The SUVs and clunkers", describing two kinds of cars!
