"Pencils in the Wind" was featured in the episode Yoko and is performed by Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement.

SummaryEdit

Pencils in the Wind (also known as "Sellotape") is a heartfelt ode to the similarities between love and adhesive tape — generically referred to as Sellotape in many countries including New Zealand. It begins with Bret and Jemaine singing separately and in different locations — using split screen — and ends with most of the cast (Coco, Mel and Dave) and a large chorus of extras singing together in a night-time street scene, and concludes with Bret and Jemaine rising from the ground, in a similar manner to the end of Grease and the music video for "It's Oh So Quiet" by Björk.

LyricsEdit

Lyrics for Pencils in the Wind from Yoko

Lives are like retractable pencils / If you push them too hard they're gonna break / And people are like paper dolls / Paper dolls and people, they're a similar shape / Hmm Hmmm Hm

Love is like a roll of tape / It's real good for making two things one / But just like that roll of tape / Love sometimes breaks off before you were done

Another way that love is similar to tape / That I've noticed / Is sometimes it's hard to see the end / Bret - You search round the roll / Jemaine - You search round the roll / Bret - You search round the roll / Jemaine - Your searching round the roll / Bret - You search round the roll / Jemaine - You search / With your fingernail / Again and again / And again and again / And again / Wo Owo

Brown paper, white paper / Stick it together with the tape / The tape of love / The sticky stuff

Brown paper, white paper / Stick it together with the tape / The tape of love / The sticky stuff / Oohh oohhoo

People people / Paper paper / Paper paper / People people / People people / Pencil pencil / Pencil pencil / Paper paper / Put the pencil to the paper / Give the paper to the people / Let the people read about the sello tape, O Baby Baby / Yeaha

You know Jemaine, I've been thinking about love / And I guess it's the very strongest adhesive.

Oh sorry, Bret. Were you talking to me? I was humming. / What did you say? / Oh, doesn't matter

Brown paper, white paper / Stick it together with the tape / The tape of love / The sticky stuff / Yeah / Ooh brown / Brown paper, white paper / Stick it together with the tape / The tape of love / Stick it / Stick it together / Stick stick, stick it together / Ye-yeah
