Appearances

Overview

"Too Good for Me" is the final track on the master reel for The Kitchen Tape, Weezer's second demo, but is actually a solo Rivers Cuomo recording and was not part of the released Kitchen Tape The song remained unheard by fans until 2020, when it was released as part of the digital compilation Alone IV: The Blue-Pinkerton Years, which featured Rivers' 1993 Monterey Jack cassette.

Three additional mixes of the song were released as part of the bundle Alone XI: The EWBAITE Years. These are digital remixes of the 1992 recording, done by Rivers some time between 2011 and 2014. Mix 2 is seemingly just a new mix of the song, while mix 3.2 features a revised structure (extending the first chorus to a double chorus), a smoother ending, and a brief, new overdub of a flubbed vocal from the original. Mix 3 is the lead vocal from mix 3.2.

Lyrics

I'll say it again, I said it before
I said so
And all the time, you na-na-na-na
You know so
I said it before, I'll say it again
I said so
You said so

You all are too good for me
You all could never need me
And if you could not see
You all mean nothing to me

You all are too good for me
You all could never need me
And if you could not see
You all mean nothing to me

Said it before, I said it again
I said so
Pick up the cup and put it away
In the pantry
Records are falling on the phone in the room
You go to
I'll go too

You all are too good for me
You all could never need me
And if you could not see
You all mean nothing to me

You all are too good for me
You all could never need me
And if you could not see
You all mean nothing to me
