    There are a few sentenses in The Offsprings's Meaning Of Life.

    Like one line says 'Geting to where I'd like to Say' I even looked upt he official lyrics, its say, not Stay.

    Then theres the line

    'What to say and do'

    When its more word wise to say 'what to do and say'

    Hmm, interesting thought.

    I think you're actually correct.

    "What to do and say" sounds better to me then "what to say and do"

    Though I must admit I don't see a need in creating an entire thread to point that out... ;)

    Well i haven't heard the song but while i think tamer's right at the same time there must be a reason as to why the song was written in such a way...sometime writers twist and turn words not only to make the song sound better but to convey a certain message

    That's true.

    I think think that song writers will also word things a little unusually becuase thay want it to rhyme.

    yah, force lyrics to rhyme always ends up being awkward
