1. High School Rock-N-Roll

summer's over and the bells are ringin'
down the halls the girls are singin'
to the boys who will be bringin'
their science books to class
it's 2 o'clock and they can't sit still
brains are tired and they've lost their will
to pay attention then they get that chill
that begs the time to pass

'cuz all the kids
can't wait to go home
and turn on the radio
it's alive on the 45
with no place else to go
will I know

the kids are goin' crazy
for the high school rock
drivin' mom crazy
with the high school rock
rock, rock, rockin'
to the high school rock and roll

notes are passin' all around the room
homecoming is comin' soon
and the guys are gonna meet their doom
if they don't learn how to dance
the nurse's office is gettin' full
with all the boys that think they're cool
enough to get sent home from school
so they won't leave much to chance

2. We Don't Care

mom's yellin' get a job
dad's callin' me a slob
but i don't wanna work
for no minimum wage
i was late for class again
teacher gave me detention
and she said boy you better
start actin' your age

i wake up every single day
tryin' to think up a way
to get through
without gettin' pushed around by you

and i say woh-oh-oh-oh
and you say woh-oh-oh-oh
and we just don't care about that anyway
woh-oh-oh-oh

all the jocks think i'm a geek
they beat me up 3 times a week
and i couldn't get a girl to save my life
my neighbor says i got no taste
he thinks that my whole life is a waste
this comin' from a guy that beats his wife

parents are thinkin'
rehabilitation
principal wants to send me
on a long vacation
but they don't know about me
it's more than what they see
i'm not a teenage sickie
i know that 1 and 1 is not 3

3. FFT

sitting in my room the thoughts
are flying through my head
tast inside my brain is tart
the contract's on my bed
smell the smell of cigar smoke
and i know who it is
ideas are dumb the doors are shut
the messages are his

my buddly al drove off a cliff
and ran into a nail
he licks his wounds and wonders
how the tooth drove him to fail
he hates to park his car
downtown on 16th avenue
sometimes her eyes are green
and other times i think they're blue

my sister is a mother
and my mother is a chore
my brother is a junkie
for the c.o. music boards
i knew this guy who was so lazy
and he was so dumb
he slept all day and lost his job
and now he is a bum

4. Aloha It's You

you're callin' to say hellow now
it's been 14 days and i don't know how
to deal with you not bein' here
it breaks my heart
you sound like you're havin' fun and
i wish you'd miss me
more than you do

i'm sick of talkin' to myself
i want you and no one else
but you're too far away to hear

what i got to say
what i got to say
and i just can't wait

i'm dreamin' about hawaii
the surf and the sand, you hangin' with me
but you're gone before too long
and i feel blue
you won't be here to see and changes
to hold on to me
to hold back my tears

and it's just not fair
that i can't be there
seems like you don't care, yeah, yeah

Back To The Top
5. I Don't Wanna Sit Around With You

you're a punk but i don't know
why you don't shower
or change your clothes

and i don't wanna sit around with you
and i don't wanna do the things you do
you're ugly and your breath smells bad too
and i don't wanna sit around with you

Back To The Top
6. When I Think About Her

well the kids all laugh
point their fingers and call her names
'cuz she don't look like them
and her family's kinda strange

but when she looks at me that way
it makes me smile and want to say
i'd be glad for you to stay
when i think about her

she eats alone and walks home
without a friend in sight
and everybody else is hangin'
while she's home very friday night

it makes me sad to see her face
filled with doubt and and oughta place
it makes my mind drift into space
when i think about her

never had someone to truly care
pop never could find the time to spare
she grew up tough and that's alright
i want her to see that they're not like me
well i wanna hang with her tonight

well i walked up to her
and asked if she'd like to dance
but she turned, ran away
and didn't give me a second glance

7. Jeannie Hates The Ramones

jeannie had a birthday
so i took her to go see the ramones play
she complained and whined
the whole time we were there
and acted like she didn't even care

now jeannie's got a problem
if she want's to live without'em
then she'll have to live without me

cuz' jeannie hates the ramones

she always turns my records off
and turns in their direction when she coughs
now joey's got spit bubble on his face
i swear that girl is such a mental case

it almost makes my ears go numb
when she says gabba gabba dumb
i just don't know what else to do
i think she must be sniffin' glue

Back To The Top
8. I'm No Good

she was lookin' all sad and lonely
like she lost her one and only
and i was broke
and had nothin' to do
standin' by the soda machine
she looked so pretty
she looked so clean
and when i saw her
you know i couldn't let go

record on the jukebox gettin' old
the only thing she knows
is what she's told
a-woh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

i was standin' all by myself
didn't matter to no one else
well i was standin' all by myself
a-woh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

hangin' out at the tastee freeze
she caught my eye like a disease
and all her friends are tellin' her
that i'm no good
it makes me smile
yeah it makes me laugh
they frown on me
and they walk right past
but not her, they were gone
and there she stood

10. Stinky's All Grown Up

when stinky was 7 years old
did everything he was told
and tried his best to fi in with the crowd
got picked last for schoolyard games
never called him by his name
always fell short of makin' his mom proud

now stinky's got it all planned out
he'll show them now that he's no clown 'cuz
stinky's all grown up
but he's still aggravatin

stinky's all grown up
but all his friends still hate him
stinky's all grown up
and he's tired of waiting for his day to come

most kids have toys, stinky had rocks
couldn't seen to match his socks
the dirtmarks on his right arm stayed the same
went to summer camp each year
carried with him just one fear
that someone would show up
that knew his name

11. 1985

doc you gotta help me
get back to my place in time
my dad's a chump and my mom's screwed up
she thinks i'm calvin klein
we just need some plutonium
and i'll be on my way right outta here

i don't think i can stand livin' in 1955
strickland's still a twerp and biff's still a jerk
i don't think i could survive
get her up to 88
this nightmare will be in the past for me

meet me at the clock tower
and doc try not to be late
i'm goin' to the dance it's my last chance
i gotta set those 2 kids straight
doc you gotta help me get
get me back to 1985

12. How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away?

you call me up and tell me lies
to try to change my mind
but you're not the girl i'm lookin' for
so stop wastin' all your time

now that i let you know
i got one more thing to say
how can i miss you
if you won't go away?

you follow me around downtown
like a dog without a home
and i'd do almost anything
if you'd just leave me alone

it's not gonna make it better
if i see you every day 'cuz
how can i miss you
if you won't go away?

14. No Luck Again

another night and i'm alone
watchin' tv, waitin' by the phone
said she'd call me around 8
it's 12:06 i guess she's runnin' late

no luck again

went upstairs to get a snack
conan's on i gotta hurry back
phone rang, i tried not to get mad
picked it up but it was only brad

gave up and went to sleep at 4
couldn't stand the waiting anymore
ran into her at the mall
she was mad because i didn't call

Back To The Top
15. Jackie Is An Atheist

met her at the squirtgun show
punk girl with frizzy hair
she was such an imbecile
and thought her height wasn't fair

she don't care what we say
she won't listen, no way
whe wants the band to just shut up and play

jackie o, jackie is an atheist
jackie says she won't change her mind
jackie o, jackie is an atheist
just give her some time

she drops by every saturday
and calls cliff every night
she tags along and sings our songs
and gets every word right

she's such a cool young girl
but sometimes i just don't know
if what she believes is real
or she's too scared to just let go

Back To The Top
16. Avi Is A Vampire

there's this guy from west beloit
he's such a mutton head
he wears black cloaks and eye makeup
to look like he is dead
never thought it funny
that he hangs down in the streets
never thought it odd
that he bites everyone he meets

i think avi is a vampire
i think so

he had a show and called us up
to ask us if we'd play
but his band went on first
and they scared everyone away
some people say he is for real
and others say he's full
of junk and that your leg's
the only thing he'd ever pull

he's not your ordinary creep
he's not some crazy psycho freak
and he's not the one who
haunts you while you sleep

avi's just a real cool guy
that some misunderstand
'cuz he knows god and all that stuff
just falls in with his plan
but he just likes to get a rise
out of the normal folks
he's just the same as you and me
under those silly jokes
