[Flansburgh intro:] Hi, this is John of They Might Be Giants. Ya know, a lot of people ask us, "What was the first song on your first demo?" Well, we like to say, "It was entitled 'Now That I Have Everything.'" And then often they say, "Where can I hear this song that was the first song on your first demo?" And we say, "Well, there's only one place." And that place has to be They Might Be Giants's Dial-A-Song service - 25 hours a day, 6 days a week, dial music at the end of the tunnel for a new generation. Brooklyn's ambassadors of love - They Might Be Giants performing their very first tape, their very first song on their very first demo, and it was called "Now That I Have Everything" - coming up live on They Might Be Giants's Dial-A-Song service.


The mirror on the wall Won't talk to me at all Now that I have everything The face inside the frame Just doesn't look the same Now that I have everything

I wasn't always so fortunate But I knew what I had to do to be well-to-do And it had to do with the things I had to do

And I don't want anything I don't want anything Now that I have everything I can't tell things apart I don't know where they start Now there's everything Don't remind me of yesterday

Put down that surfboard, no Please don't say all the things I think I know that you're about to say Everything is everything Is what you're just about to say

There was a program Sort of an inquiry Into what would be just the thing for me If it came to be I would have to wait and see

And I don't want anything I don't want anything Now that I have everything I can't tell things apart I don't know where they start Now that I have everything

And the mirror on the wall Won't talk to me at all Now that I have everything The face inside the frame Just doesn't look the same Now there's everything Don't remind me of yesterday
