Inept con man
An inept con man? Just a guess. One of Linnell's best songs on Nanbots. 50 odd seconds of joy.
If I were Dave
I wouldn't be too keen on whatever scheme he's proposing. --22.214.171.124 08:54, 26 March 2013 (EDT)
Guy who likes to steal.
He's gonna go use up his hundred dollars. He took them from John.--Nascarbean 97 23:58, 27 March 2013 (EDT)
Prehaps; and I am not pointing fingers here; we should listen to the Johns. In that interview from the beginning of april, Flans says quite clearly that the name of this song is Grape. So it's like an enigma, where they misprint the name of the song on iTunes, it makes it into the linear notes, and sooner or later everybody is saying Great instead of Grape.
Personally tho I think the song makes a lot of more sense if you call it Great than if you call it Grape. I mean, JL is obviously pronouncing it as Great and not Grape so I can see how youd think that. You'd be wrong, but maybe they should change it to be right? That seems a lot more likely to me. But then that's just...my....two...$0.02!--WhatTheHeckLinnell (talk) 09:06, 12 April 2013 (EDT)
Until I looked at the lyrics, I thought Dave was going downtown to "get used up", ie use his $100 on gambling, liquor and ladies.
- Well, there was some debate on the wiki over the lyrics of the last line, but it was cleared up by the TMBG tumblr. See the history of the lyrics page for the, umm, "discussion". --MisterMe (talk) 10:47, 20 July 2013 (EDT)
- Dave, wait, you're telling me the lyric is not "get used up"?! That lyric is just too right to be wrong. Well, I guess the only option at this point is to petition John Linnell to officially change it. --robmang
Change in narrator
I think the last line is coming from the point of view of the money. The first narrator asks where Dave is going and the money answers for Dave that it's going to be spent. Akagi (talk) 11:22, 19 April 2014 (EDT)
