Appearances

Overview

Aloo gobi is a vegetarian dish from the Indian subcontinent made with potatoes (aloo), cauliflower (gob(h)i), and Indian spices.[1]

The song's existence was first hinted at on November 27, 2020, when the comments "hold aloo" and "hold aloo gobi" were found in the metadata of tracks released as part of Alone XII: The White Year. Rivers Cuomo later confirmed the song's title to users of Riverchat and uploaded a photo of the song's sheet music as his profile picture on riverscuomo.com.[2] The tracks from Alone XI: The EWBAITE Years labeled "pretty great piano melody" from February 2013, as well as several acoustic sketches dated March 13, 2013, were eventually used as the instrumental bridge for "Aloo Gobi".

Lyrics

What's playing at the Aero?
Some French noir flick
Don't wanna sit next to humans
I'm agoraphobic
Order up a decaf latte
Spin Gainsbourg tunes
Gosh darn, this cast iron lounger
My butt will bruise

I'd rather be a man on a mission
Oh-oh-oh, my god
What's happening to me?
Walking down Montana, whoa
Same old dull routines
Same aloo gobi
Walking down Montana, whoa

I tried to raise an eyebrow
It weighed too much
Instead I simply stared at the passing trucks
They said that life gets sweet as years go by
But mine has lost its flavor like this chai

I'd rather be a man on a mission
Oh-oh-oh, my god
What's happening to me?
Walking down Montana, whoa
Same old dull routines
Same aloo gobi
Walking down Montana, whoa

(Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god)

You are not alone, you are not alone
Someone else will be there with you
Be there with you, you are not alone
Be there with you, be there with you
You are not alone

Oh-oh-oh, my god
What's happening to me?
Walking down Montana, whoa
Same old dull routines
Same aloo gobi
Walking down Montana, whoa
