Weezer - Pink Triangle

When I'm stable long enough
I start to look around for love
See a sweet in floral print
My mind begins the arrangements
But When I start to feel that pull
Turns out I just pulled myself
She would never go with me
Were I the last girl on Earth
I'm dumb, she's a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
We were good as married in my mind
But married in my mind's no good
A Pink Triangle on her sleeve
Let me know the truth, let me know the truth
Might have smoked a few in my time
But never thought it was a crime
Knew the day would surely come
When I'd chill and settle down
When I think I found a good old-fashioned girl
Then she put me in my place
If everyone's a little queer
Can't she be a little straight?
I'm dumb, she's a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
We were good as married in my mind
But married in my mind's no good
Pink Triangle on her sleeve
Let me know the truth, let me know the truth
I'm dumb, she's a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
We were good as married in my mind
But married in my mind's no good
Pink Triangle on her sleeve
Let me know the truth, let me know the truth
I'm dumb, she's a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
We were good as married in my mind
But married in my mind's no good
A Pink Triangle on her sleeve
Let me know the truth, let me know the truth
Let me know the truth, let me know the truth

"Pink Triangle" was the third single off the second album Pinkerton by Weezer. It was released to radio on May 20th, 1997 in a last ditch effort to boost sales for the album. The song was remixed by Tom Lord-Alge, adding a reworked guitar solo, a synth track and overdubbed vocals. The song describes a man with ambiguous sexuality who falls in love with a woman with whom he imagines he could settle down and be married. However, he soon discovers that the object of his affection is a lesbian who possibly thinks that the man himself is gay.The song is based on a real person that Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo encountered while a student at Harvard. Years later, he discovered that the woman was actually not a lesbian but merely showing support for the gay community by wearing a pink triangle. The song only picked up a scarce amount of airplay, never charted and was deemed not successful enough to warrant a video. It is the band's least successful single.
