"Fontana" is a song demoed by Weezer in 2002 during early demo sessions for the band's then-planned fifth album.

Appearances

Overview

"Fontana" was written by Rivers Cuomo around 2002. Weezer recorded demos of the song during sessions for the band's planned fifth album immediately following the recording sessions for Maladroit (and before that album had even been released). None of the songs from these sessions would be released, however, and the album would not be released until 2005, in the form of Make Believe.

Lyrics

Weakened knee joints, stomach flutters
Shaking elbows still demand
That I ask you for an answer
To the question here at hand

Why did he reach out to you just now
Touch your hand and say goodbye?

You can hear him breathin’ heavy
With a sound so physical
In his blue jeans, he’s bow-legged
And he’s stupid like a bull

Why did he reach out to you just now,
Touch your hand and say goodbye?

Why did he reach out to you just now,
Touch your hand and say goodbye?
How’s a man supposed to stand up so tall
When he feels that he could die?

Can you hear him?
