Much to the dismay of your sensei, you were skipping class / To meet me outside by the soccer field in the tall grass / When I first met you, you had on the coolest clothes / Just like a model out of the Japanese Vogue / You took my hand, you liked my band, you gave me fashion tips / But most of all and above all, you let me touch those lips / Pass up drinks and put out smokes / You're so beautiful, I puke and choke / Your uncle's Takashi Miike, yeah, you're mine / Origami valentine / You tried to teach me to use chopsticks and I quickly failed / To grasp the noodles with my hand, so shaky and pale / When I first met you, you did not know how to dance / But nor did I, so we just writhed and then it was romance / I love the way you giggle, girl, and I'm your biggest fan / Except for the large one you sometimes carry in your hand / Your friends all think that I'm a jerk / My stupid jokes don't always work / But you still like me and I know you're mine / Origami valentine / (Waiting on you, waiting just for you) / Though I'm no Rivers Cuomo, I could write you a song or two / Compare you to Yoko Ono, but oh no! / That's so not called for and it's so not you / But you're a pipe dream, baby (Yes, I'm in your dreams) / I'll never know you, baby (Unless you cross the sea) / Origami valentine, origami valentine / I will never know you, you're not real / This valentine is just surreal / I closely follow J-Pop trends / But you can't hear me in the end / (Waiting on you, waiting just for you) / I will never know you, you're not real / This valentine is just surreal / Origami valentine
