Sell Out
Well, I know you can't work in fast food all your life
But don't sign that paper tonight, she said, but it's too late.
I don't remember what I read, I don't remember what they
Said, I guess it doesn't matter, I guess it doesn't matter
Anymore - you're gonna go to the record store
You're gonna give'em all your money
Radio plays what they want you to hear
They tell me it's cool but I just don't believe it...

Sell out, with me oh yea, sell out, with me tonight
Record company's gonna give me lots of money and
Everything's gonna be. (all right)

No more flippin' burgers puttin' on my silly hat you know
I don't want that no more, I didn't ask when we'd
Get paid, I quit my day job anyway, I guess it
Doesn't matter, I guess it doesn't matter anymore
You're gonna go to the record store, you're gonna
Give'em all your money, radio plays what they want
You to hear, they tell me it's cool, but I just don't
Believe it
Sell out, with me oh yea, sell out
With me tonight, the record company's gonna give me
Lots of money and everything's gonna be.

I don't think it'll be so bad
I know it won't be so bad
Cause the man said 'that's the way it is' and the
Man said 'it don't get better than this' no no no

So I signed on to the record company, they say they're
Gonna give me lot's of money, if I play what they want you to hear
They tell me it's cool, and I sure believe it...back to top
Trendy
Everybody's doin' the fish
Yea! yea! yea!
Everybody's doin' the fish
Yea, yea, yea...
It's not so bad bein' trendy
Everyone who looks like me is my friend
Please don't hate me because I'm trendy
They're not gonna laugh at me again
Everybody does it (everybody does it)
And I wonder why don't you (why don't you)
Everybody... everybody does it... (c'mon everybody)
Maybe you should too
'cause you don't wanna be left out
You wanna be cool
It's not so bad bein' trendy
Everyone who looks like me is my friend
Please don't hate me because I'm trendy
(I'm gonna do it because it's trendy)
They're not gonna laugh at me again!
Everybody's makin' fun of me
'cause they say, I'm so trendy
'cause I do what others do
They'll make fun of me
They'll make fun of you
But I don't wanna be left out...
I wanna be cool!
(makin' fun of trendy people is the trendiest thing of all)back to top
Join the Club
Was gonna call my friends and get'em all together
I was gonna go and start a band,
But everything I wanna do has already been done.
Why would I wanna go and do it again?
Everybody...plays guitar.

She's so cute (if you know what I mean)
She's the cutest little girl, that I've ever seen.
Maybe she'll like me if I play guitar
Maybe she'll like me if I'm the lead singer yea,
Oh yea! there's so many bands, and we all look the same...

I just saw them, up on stage and I don't
Remember how good they played.
He can't sing,
But I'd pay just to see her face, yea, yea, yea, yea...

Everybody's in a band yea, yea, yea
Have you heard of my band? oh, ooh, ooh
We try to be different
But I guess that's nothing new.back to top
She Has a Girlfriend Now
She has a girlfriend now
She has a girlfriend now
She has a girlfriend now, she said
'guys don't do no more for me'

'you never loved me, like I wanted you to'
'i loved you baby, what do you want me to do? '

She said she found someone who's gonna hold her hand
She said she found someone who's gonna understand
She don't need nobody to be her man
She don't need nobody to be her man

I never thought it would end like this
Just because I've got no tits
I'll shave my legs, I'll wear a bra
I'll even cut my penis off for you...
She has a girlfriend now.back to top
Snoop Dog, Baby
I just couldn't believe it, when I turned on
The radio, try to run, try to hide, try to keep it inside,
They were playin' that song
And I thought about her
Snoop doggy dog, snoop doggy dog
So much trouble in the lbc
Livin' without her's gonna drive me crazy...she's so.

Don't you just wanna kill me, cause you're talkin'
Behind my back, well I love the band. they're a
Great bunch of guys, but lookin' at her brings
Tears to my eyes, I'm watchin' her shake
She gonna give a heart attack now, baby
Snoop doggy dog, snoop doggy dog
Maybe I don't want her back, you know?
Maybe I just can't let her go...I'm so.
Well i, turn the radio off...
I don't want no part, try to make me a big star?
I don't wanna be a big star.
Everybody's mad they wanna kick me in the head
Was it somethin' I did, was it somethin' I said?
I would try to tell you but I just don't wanna lie
It really shouldn't matter but it makes me wanna
Cry, I wish I didn't care, I wish I didn't care...
But I do. snoop doggy dog (she said) snoop doggy dog
Please don't tell me it'll be ok cause I know
I'll never never never get my way...
And so.back to top
Beer
She called me late last night, to say she loved me so
It didn't matter anymore, but I say she never cared
And that she never will, I'd do it all again
I guess I'll have to wait until then

If I get drunk well, I'll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won't bother me no more
If you're drinkin' well, you know
That you're my friend and I say
I think I'll have myself a beer.

She called me late last night, to say she loved me,
So..? but I guess he changed her mind.
Well I should have known it wouldn't be
All right, but I can't live without her
So I won't even try...

Maybe some day, I'll think of what to say.
Maybe next time I'll remember what to do,
She looks like heaven, maybe this is hell,
Said she'd do it all again, she'd promise not to tell!

If I get drunk well, I'll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won't bother me no more
(and she said)
It's ok boy cause you know
We'll be good friends
And I say, I think I'll have myself a beer.back to top
241
241! (repeat several times)back to top
Everything Sucks
There's a ska band on my street, a little ska band
Everybody thinks they're so fuckin' neat,
There was nothin' on the radio
Was gonna make my own band, play my own shows
But that don't work so I'm givin' up again,
She said she loved me cause I played guitar
That's ok, I didn't love her at all and I say...

I'm givin' up
I know everything sucks, and this is gonna be the last
Time you hear me complain

Well, I went down to the show
Everybody was there, I didn't wanna go
Cause everything they do is so fuckin' cool, every song is a hit and the
Girls like'em too, I can't do that so
I'm givin' up again...i don't know why I learned
To play guitar, nobody's gonna know who we are and I say..

I'm givin' up
I know everything sucks and this is gonna be
The last time you hear me complain

She said, some day, we'll get back together maybe
She said, some day, things'll be much better baby
But I don't believe her
And I don't think I need her anymore...

I know everything sucks
And this won't be the last time you hear me complain.back to top
S. R.
What ever happened to suburban rhythm?
Why did ed and scott quit?
Please don't go, suburban rhythm
All the other bands are just shitback to top
Skatanic
Watchin' you sleep, I'm lookin' in your window,
Everyday I drive past your house
Standin' in your front yard, why don't you come out?
Watchin' you sleep...nowhere to hide,
One of these days I'm gonna come inside
It must be love,
What else could it be?
Fuck you bitch I love you I'm not crazy? !

Walkin' up to her, now she's walkin' away
I just wanna talk to you!
Maybe she's got better things to do
Don't be afraid...to feel my touch,
Don't worry babe I won't hurt you much.
It must be love
What else could it be?
Fuck you bitch I love you I'm not crazy.

I'm gonna make you love me!
I'm gonna make you love me!
I'm gonna make you love me!
No matter what you say, now here I come.back to top
All I Want Is More
Why can't she make up her fuckin' mind
I'm just sittin' here wastin' so much time
I know it's my fault but it's not my problem anymore...
Some day, maybe she'll come back to me and
I'll say, 'why don't you go fuck yourself!'
But everybody's talkin', they know that I'm lyin'
She gave me everything...all I want is more...

I wrote this song for her. but it won't
Make up for anything. I know it's too late
So why do I wait? it's not my problem
Anymore...
Some day, maybe she'll come back to me and
I'll say, 'why don't you go fuck yourself!? '
But everybody's talkin', they know that I'm lyin'
She won't do anything and I'll always wait for her...

Some day, maybe she'll come back to me and
I'll say, 'why don't you go fuck yourself!? '
Everybody's talkin', they know that I'm lyin'
She gave me everything
But all I want is more
All I want is more
All I want is moreback to top
Nothin'
Everytime I try so hard I get nothin' (nothin')
They say try and you won't fail, I get nothin' (nothin')
I did all that I could I got nothin' (nothin')
I tried so hard, for nothin' (nothin')

I never wanted it that way, guess there was nothin' I could say
I don't know what I want
But I know I don't want this
I give up, I give in, I know I'm never gonna win

I know it's really not your fault
I'm gonna blame you anyway
You say you're sorry but I know it won't do no good
I give up, I give in, I know I'm never gonna win.

I don't fuckin' care, I don't fuckin' care
I don't fuckin' care anymore
It's gonna be all right
Cause I don't fuckin' care anymore.back to top
I'll Never Be
Everybody's lookin' at me
Thought I saw my face on mtv
Or a magazine that she won't read, stole
Her heart but it's not my fault, lookin' at
My picture she forgot about her boyfriend, yea.

I'll never be...a rock and roll star
I'll never be...anything, anything at all,
Drives me crazy, can't get away,
Somebody tell me...when do we get paid?

Everybody's lookin' at me
Thought by now I'd be on mtv
Or a magazine like seventeen or rolling stone,
And I won't be alone with your
Money in my pocket and face on your t-shirt yea.

I'll never be...a rock and roll star
I'll never be...anything, anything at all,
Drives me crazy, can't get away,
But I try and I try and I try and I try
Every day
Every day
Said I'll never be, a rock and roll star
I'll never be...anything, anything at all.back to top
Alternative, Baby
Well, I see you up on stage and I don't know just
What you're sayin', but you're my hero...
And a guy just kicked me in the head, a little girl
Just passed out dead, I'm in between a big jock
And a sweaty skinhead but I love you
Whatever that means...but I don't wanna talk
To you, cause I know I'd just say some thing
Stupid and I know you've got better things to do.

Hey, little alternative girl
Don't you wanna be my friend?
You know I'm singin' all my songs to you
It's all right if you don't understand.

Maybe I shouldn't be so serious, tellin' you that
Everything sucks cause I don't wanna bring you down
But it never ever works out right, I'm gonna lose,
Give up the fight, I won't get what I want
Won't get anything but I love you...whatever that means.
And they don't wanna talk to me cause they know
What I'll turn out to be, I said I was cool
But I can't lie to you (but I do)

Hey, little alternative girl
Don't you wanna be my friend?
You know I'm singin' all my songs to you
It's all right if you don't understand.

And I don't wanna start again cause I know
It'll be the same in the end
I didn't like it the first time anyway.back to top
