Left Hand Suzuki Method Lyrics

(noodle speaks japanese)

The most important thing
Is to listen to a recording of the music.
It makes them gain a ..um.. musical sense
And gets to the point of..fast progress

(noodle speaks japanese again)

And also.. every day..every...

    ... Lets just all admit that we don't know wtf this song means. Like the whole "bong rip" theory? I mean- tbh that makes more sense then some of the other theories I've heard for other songs- but I think this was just a little goof by Damien.

    There is a version of this song that starts with the sound of a bong rip.

    The left hand suzuki method is also a name for holding the lighter in the left hand facing away from yourself and tilting it upside-down while burning the herb to keep the flame away from your thumb

    Bet you're pissed to learn this is a stoner song XD

    Well, i believe there is no actual meaning to interpret in this song. In my oppinion, they had an idea for a beat, but never put much though into the lyrics for this song. Like you hear songs that make no sense but have a goode beat, such as Shut Me Up by Mindless Self Indulgence. I'm pretty sure i'm wrong.

    This songs kind of creepy. Noodle is talking about listening to the recording
    and it has background music of songs that didn't come out til later on.

    Feel Good Inc. wasn't even made at the time of Left Hand Suzuki Method. This song came in 2001 and Feel Good Inc. was on Demon Days, which was a 2005 album.

    Well, Suzuki is a way of teaching music, generally the violin or piano, to very young children. So if you want to take the lyrics at face value...

    This song is like a medley of many of thier songs if you listen you can hear some "clint eastwood" and also some "dare" and "feel good inc"

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
