Fun Time is a song written by Rivers Cuomo in 1997.

Background

Written around September of 1997, the song was played at various solo Rivers Cuomo concerts (and one Homie show) at clubs in Boston and Cambridge, MA. The song initially featured a bridge that was dropped from subsequent performances. The song was recorded for a full Homie album the following Winter at Fort Apache Studios by Cuomo along with Fred Eltringham (of the band Gigolo Aunts) and Drew Parsons (who had played bass for Tracy Bonham). This album has never been released (except for the track "I'll Think About You", released on Alone II).

In 2009, it was included on a Homie tribute album recorded by Lifetaker and runnersdialzero.

Lyrics

11/21/97 at T.T. the Bear's Place, Cambridge, MA

Down at 7-11
When I got to go
I just piss in the sink
And I don't buy anything
And no one ever knows

I take the fun for free
Whenever companies let me
I just piss in the sink
And I don't buy anything
And no one ever knows

Ain't no fun time
I won't do it again
You got to give me an answer
Do you wanna be more than friends?

When I'm cutting the rug
I'm moving chick to chick
I bust a superlative move
If I'm down in the groove
She takes me home real quick
And if she's hogging the can
And I got to go
I just whiz in the sink
And I don't say anything
And no one ever knows

You said

October 8, 1997 at T.T the Bear's Place, Cambridge, MA

Same as above lyrics, with an added bridge


???
and I pay no rent
???
I pay no rent, yeah
