Lyrics/Song Structure:


---> Play Verse A over:

We were born in the seventies

The rippin and rhyming and brethren see

We're filling taste great

In the old school I was eight

For the new school I was late

But in high school I was debate

I rate in the great state of California

I'm warning ya

---> Play Verse B over:

Me ne je vais a la plage parce que le guignol est chouette!

[Translation: I go to the beach because the puppet show is grand.]

I kick nonsense in French tasty like Crepe Suzette

I bet you're feelin famished for a 311 sandwich

Not the wack Dj's that I'm (gonn)a damage

---> Play Verse A over:

I like a beat that's unique and I like my head zooming

And in my Continental you know that shit's booming

With the diamond in the back suicide doors

You can look from here to eternity

And never receive your morsel

Another tale of ordinary madness

The girl who gave you her sex I heard was homeless say

All I really wanna is to feel nirvana

Won't you take me tonight and we just might find

---> Play Pre-Chorus over:

A bottle of wine and feel our nasty nature

Your tongue lickin' up my tongue

Your radio pickin' up a smokey jazz love song

Madness becomes you even though your

Livin' life it's hard to exist

---> Play Chorus over:

When you're tempted by flesh you wanna bust through

Beautiful legs in the bar there is poetry

She bends and suspends and her ass

Is a marvelous thing

A dance dancin' at a club the Hereafter

Who can't really dance but that doesn't really matter

And she won't hear applause

Cuz your drunk and lost

All light is gone

Your arms spread like a cross

And you're dreaming that the world will soon fall apart

---> Play Verse A over:

Topless girl in your gaze which is hazy

Takes your dollar

In the gutter without cigarettes

Or wine you're hungover

I was warned of your normal behavior and felt

My life was too short to consider your wack self

---> Play Verse B over:

It's like this when you dip down

And you are boxin'

Reeling against the ropes and you

Face some young Mexican

Your scrappin' your neck gets

Snapped back your eyes have bled

Your thinking' about a comeback

But your takin' it to the head

---> Play Pre-Chorus over:

You little bastard

Better watch you back

Cuz we're after

Your punk ass by God we're gonna jack it

You're played out and small time

And your show is over

You're 'bout as lucky as a three leaf clover

---> Play Chorus over:

And your older ho bag sceezer

In her droopy saggy skin

Who thought she was a model

But in truth a never-has-been

You're both fools, you and your cheap rooms too

The cigar, biting your lips the way'd love you too

---> Play Chorus (x4)
