Daria – Opening Theme Music and Lyrics

Daria and Skull

I was always a fan of Daria. As an angsty, somewhat intelligent, pessimistic teen, she really spoke to me. But this isn’t about that. It’s about that awesome theme song that kicked off each episode.

The song was written and performed by a female grunge group called Splendora. They only ever dropped one album back in 1995, but the Amazon reviews for it all agree it was excellent. The theme song itself, You’re Standing on My Neck, does a good job of outlining the finer, more subtle points of the show itself.

Lyrics to the Daria Theme Song

Artist: Splendora
Song: You’re Standing on My Neck | Daria Theme
Album: In The Grass [Check Out Their CD]

la la la la la
This is my stop
Got to get off
I may go pop
Excuse me,

Excuse me

I’ve got to be direct
la la la
If I’m off, please correct
la la la

You’re standing on my neck

Look right through me
Say I’m gloomy
Well so sue me
Excuse me,

excuse me

I’ve got to be direct
la la la
It’s like a big train wreck
la la la
Your standing on my neck
la la la
Your standing on my neck
la la la
Your standing

Nothing is like I planned it
So funny I can’t stand it
Wish I was made of granite
I must be on another planet

la la la la la
la la la la la

This is my stop
I’ve got to get off
I may go pop
Excuse me,

excuse me

I’ve got to be direct
la la la
If I’m off, please correct
la la la
Your standing on my neck
la la la
You standing on my neck
la la
Your standing on my neck

la la la la la

– repeat 15x!(…why would they do that!)
