alrighty then?

i don't know what you people are hearing, but i clearly hear only 3 syllables, not 4. could possibly be "alright then", but i think it sounds like "i accept" or "i'll accept". i could be wrong about that, but i definitely hear 3 syllables and it sounds nothing like "alrighty then".

Re: alrighty then?

Hmm...I was listening last night with headphones, and I'm pretty sure he says, "Alrighty then. Picture this if you will..."

And then I sat there and thought about how someone said this song was about Blair, the butt of everyone's jokes, the guy you keep around cuz he sucks so bad and you can rip on him. I smiled.

This makes us winners. We are right! Hah! We have achieved something! What, we dont know, but we did and you other saps didn't! How does it feel to forget the "Y" every time you hear the song? I will now celebrate this victory in an extremely assholish manner because I wasn't good at little league baseball, and NOW is my chance to be on top for once! HAH! I almost feel as badass as a Mathlete!!!!

GETCHA SOME!!!

Re: alrighty then?

this guy is an obvious blue-collar worker, "i didn't graduate from high-school," who ahs just had the worst acid trip of his life. he is not talking to anyone up to this point (which does kind of bug me, why does he decide to talk to the doctor with the austrailian accent?). its alrighty. don't worry about how many syllables you hear maynard is good at crunching these syllable to fit with meter (or Meter, been 4 years since lit class).

Re: alrighty then?

Its funny that there's so much argument over something so minuscule and unimportant. What's strange is that I'm positive I'm right, and for some reason I want to correct someone else (NoD) instead of leaving it alone.

Seriously, this is probably the most inconsequential aspect of the album. And there's debate over it. I'm pretty damn sure that there's a Y in it, but its not even important. Happy listening, guys.

You'll be proven wrong when the offical lyrics ever go up. It is NOT 'alrighty'. Cheers.

If and when that happens, I will gladly admit that I was mistaken, no hard feelings. Sad thing is...arguing over little shit like this, but NOT getting pissed...its actually pretty fun. Now I'm going to listen AGAIN.

...........

Dude, listen to it with headphones on. He doesn't stress the Y, but I swear to god(s) its there. He's also speaking through that voice modulator thing, so it makes it less clear, but I'm certain dude.

I've heard it on multiple stereos and good headphones, and have always heard it 'Alright then'. It's like arguing 2 + 2 = 4. There is no Y.

Re: alrighty then?

it's alrighty then give it a break.

this thread reminds me of those dumbasses who think at the climax of the song it says:

"Overwhelmed is what you would be"

open your fucking ears

Re: alrighty then?

I thought it was alrighty, but I think thats just becuase thats what all of the lyrics have said so it what I was listening for. I listened to it this morning and clearly heard alright. OR..perhaps I only heard alright this morning because thats what I was listening for..?
Oh what a tangled web we weave.

hahaha seriously. It's a fucking "Y" Instead of debating over what is actually said, let us ponder the paradox that a "Y" can be both a consonant OR a vowel depending how it is used in a word.

Re: alrighty then?

btw..I just listened to this song more times than I care to admit tonight and I would bet my first born that he says "Alrighty then"

Thats all

it definitely doesn't matter one way or the other, but alright is not to alrighty as tomato is to tomatoe. alrighty has a 3rd syllable that clearly isn't there.
