Counting Crows - Hanginaround Lyrics

she sat right down on the sofa
says where have you been?
i been waiting for you
Cause last night i had something so good
these days get so long
and i got nothing to do
i been hangin' around this town on the corner
i been bummin' around this old town so long
i been hangin' around this town on the corner
i been bummin' around this old town way too long
we spend(t) all day getting sober
just hiding from daylight
watching tv
we just look a lot better in the blue light
well you know i gotta get out
well i'm stuck so tight weighed by the chains that keep me
hangin' around this town on the corner
i been bummin' around this old town too long
i been hangin' around this town on the corner
i been bummin' around this old town way too long
this girl listens to the band play
she says where have you been?
I been lying right here on the floor
(right here on the floor)
well I got all this time to be waiting
For what is mine
to be hating
What I am
after the love has faded
Hangin' around this town on a corner
I been bummin' around this old town so long
I been hangin' around this town on a corner
I been bummin' around this old town for way way way way way too long
way way way way too long
way way way way too long
way way way way too long
(live insert) oh my god i say
get up real early in the morning
dont get up 'till the afternoon
Son, I see the day is dawning?
(she said well get up get dressed get out)
Its almost have past noon?

Counting Crows Hanginaround Comments
  1. Leslie Hoke

    If this guy was in HS w/me I would have loved to be his friend and maybe more but alas I'm too old now ...I do enjoy his style

  2. Joe Mele

    Well everybody trip

    I related to Counting Crows music in a big way ever since 'Round Here'. They were with me when I was lonely and sad. Then this album dropped and changed my life more than any song ever has (and probably ever will). I went from a shy and embarrassed kid to opening the windows and blasting this this thing and screaming at the top of my lungs. I still listen to it whenever I'm feeling insecure.

    You see, I can relate to many songs because they match the way I'm already feeling. They say all the words that I want to hear. But, few can take a rejected tormented lost hopeless soul and say I've got all this time to be waiting for what is mine to be hating what I am after the light has faded! I said, fuck it, I'm going to be whatever the hell I am, but I've got to get out!!

  4. Dan Berry

  60. Robert Polityka

    Favorite counting crows song

  61. Mike Morrison

    Song used to come on while riding the bus to school every morning. My bus was full of misfits and ne'er-do-wells, and we had a hell of a time. Lol.

  62. pyronite59

    Been bummin’ around this old town too long...

  63. Steven Mercer

    I recall the singer saying how much people hated them, and him. Just kept playing. Not everybody's deal. But so what. You cannot be everything to everybody.

  64. RatRodRamblin

    Where'd the time go?

  65. Max Payne

    Seeing these dudes live after 20+ years of being a fan is the best thing ever.

  69. JennieMarie Douglas

    Working on it

  70. JennieMarie Douglas

    Heard them all, love them all

  71. carl tucker jr

    thank you you my dear friend glad to hugging people <3

  72. Aaron Saltzer

    I had no idea this song was by them. They have pretty good music from what I heard of it.

  73. IETCHX69

    That guy that keeps hitting that high note at the end of each phrase is a gosh darned gott .

  74. imandan1966

    Great song but the bass player never did get the feel quite right

  75. paul elliott

    Music to live by and an incredible band
    Loved this when it came out and rocked the house with it
    Still do but several different houses (and lives) later - still sounds awesome though

  76. SlowLow Crow


  77. mcat2317

    Ahh I loved this song growing up in the 90’s! Doesn’t hurt to have Amy Smart and Meredith Salenger (2:03) in the video either 😍

  78. Bioel Pimentel

    this is better than MIGOS

  79. Luke McDuke

    I think Scout Con brought me here, but I think I'm confused with another Gmod animation

  80. Tala Dunn

    a classic tune right here

  81. un known

    amy smart 3:22

  82. Feliecia FMulder50

    Yes love it

  83. St. jer Fisher

    Kind of reminds of me hanging around in Fargo.

  84. JoltCheetah

    Just realized that this is pretty musically close to "Steal My Sunshine" and that explains a lot about why this is a sleeper favorite of mine.


    That song is also great. Steal My Sunshine was built around a very short sample from “More, More, More” by Andrea True Connection. Very different, but another jam you might enjoy.

  85. PBrewster2K1

    Amy Smart, 90's/early 00's queen!

  86. Miriam Herrera

  91. Gregory Rindenello

    Can’t wait till they play the New York State Fair at the end of August.

  92. Maria Pratiwi

    Most days I'm so tired I become silly and moody, and this song just fix it!

  93. Ryan Morris

    trippie red cousin?

  94. the middle man

    Last top 10 song of the 20th century
