lyrics

Cut your hair, get a real job
Don’t you wanna be happy like everybody else?
You won’t get nowhere strummin’ that guitar
All your friends grew up, they’re doin’ well so far
Well you gotta get over this “punk rock” thing
It died a while ago, nobody wants to hear you sing
Sedate yourself, relate yourself to a suit and tie
Enslave yourself to the American dream

You do what you want 2 days a week
The other 5 are a 5 day losing streak
Don’t need to know why your choices make you
Better than me
Do what you must for that promotion
No one can match your devotion
Your boss must be so proud of you
Why?
He’s got another hundred who would just as soon comply

25 years old, seems you’ve lost control
You put your heart and soul into your rock and roll for too long
You’re too immature, when you grow up you’ll change
Chasin’ dreams isn’t meant for people your age

You do what you want 2 days a week
The other 5 are a 5 day losing streak
Don’t need to know why your choices make you
Better than me
Do what you must for that promotion
No one can match your devotion
Your boss must be so proud of you
Why?
He’s got another hundred who would just as soon comply
