lyrics

BE LAGOM -- words & music by Nate Butler
Tack, tack, tack så mycket
In a taxi, better watch that meter
Four hundred crown? -- I gotta wash that down!
So lagom, I'm pleased to meet ya
I'm so lucky you're a friendly greeter
Now I'm really on my own ...

And I can't tip the waiter -- back home she'd think I hate her
I just wanna tip every time I sip, but I don't wanna seem unhip
Etiquette is such a trip.

Did I say that right?
Trying my best, should I be uptight
Walking alone in the middle of the night?
What did he just say? Am I really in his way?
Wanna beat me up 'cause you think I'm gay?

And I can't tip the waiter -- back home she'd think I hate her
I just wanna tip every time I sip, but I don't wanna seem unhip
Etiquette is such a trip.

We say please, we say thank you
We don't need to out-rank you
Be lagom, or take your ass home

Did I say that right?
Trying my best, should I be uptight
Walking alone in the middle of the night?
What did he just say? Am I really in his way?
Wanna beat me up 'cause you think I'm gay?

And I can't tip the waiter -- back home she'd think I hate her
I just wanna tip every time I sip, but I don't wanna seem unhip
Etiquette is such a trip, oooh yeah
I just wanna get it; sorry that I said it
Etiquette is such a trip.

Be lagom! -- You're in Stockholm
Be lagom! -- Or you can take your ass home
Be lagom! -- So you can be alone
... this wouldn't be a bad place to call home.
