Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh, my baby, my baby she don't want me no more
Ever since she saw his poster in that record store
She says the way he grinds his molars is really sexy
She thinks he's so darn dysfunctional and Generation X-y
She likes his brooding angst and his wild-eyed stare
Yeah, he's her very favorite slacker multi-millionaire

[Chorus]
Well, my baby's in love with Eddie Vedder
She's all crazy 'bout that Eddie Vedder
Once she was mine, but now I better just forget her
Cause my baby's in love with Eddie Vedder

[Verse 2]
Now, every time I see him, well, he looks so grim
I guess it really must suck to be a rock star like him
What a pain in the butt to have so much success
Spending all his time moping and avoiding the press
But my girl can't get enough of his sullen demeanor
Like he's some bit tortured genius
And I'm some kinda wiener

[Chorus]
Well, my baby's in love with Eddie Vedder
She's got a thing for that Eddie Vedder
Tell me, what can he do that I can't do better?
Now my baby's in love with--
I said I said I said my baby's in love with Eddie Vedder
Head over heels for that Eddie Vedder

[Bridge]
I knew we were headin' for disaster
When she caught me hangin' out at the Ticketmaster
Now she's got an unrequited adoration
For the frustrated, agitated, designated alienated
Spokesman for the disaffected grunge generation

[Verse 3]
Well, I don't wear Doc Martens and I don't wear flannel
And I don't boycott the music video channel
And I just can't compete with all that money and fame
But I know two can play at this kinda game
Yeah, well, let's just see how jealous she'll get
When I start stalking Alanis Morissette

[Chorus]
Well, my baby's in love with Eddie Vedder
She's all crazy 'bout that Eddie Vedder
Once she was mine but now I better just forget her
Cause my baby's in love with--
I said I said I said my baby's in love with Eddie Vedder
Why'd she have to fall for that Eddie Vedder?
If she wants to leave me, I guess I better let her
Cause my baby's in love with Eddie Vedder
