"Hooligan" as written by Peter Criss and Stanley Penridge....
My granny, she said I was a hooligan
Runnin' 'round like a fool again
I went down to the candy store
If I had a nickel I'd buy some more

And I'm oh so sad, yeah, oh so bad
So sad, but it's true
Baby, what can I do

My mama, she said I was a black sheep
My baby. she said I was a creep
And I'm oh so sad, oh so bad
So sad, but it's true
Baby, what can I do

I got a '35 Chevy on a '55 frame
Can't even spell my name
Dropped out of school when I was 22
What can I do to satisfy you

I'm a hooligan
Won't go to school again
I'm a hooligan
Won't go to school again, won't go, no

I got a '35 Chevy on a '55 frame
Can't even spell my name
Dropped out of school when I was 22
What can I do to satisfy you

I'm a hooligan, yeah
Won't go to school again
I mean you know how cool I am
I'm a hooligan, I am a hooligan
Won't go to school again, won't go, no

I'm a hooligan
I mean like I'm so bad
Won't go to school again, yeah, ha, ha
I'm a hooligan
And like every chick in town loves me
Won't go to school again, won't go, no
Nobody's gonna pull me down

    General CommentWhen Peter Criss (X-KISS drummer) was a kid, his grandmother used to call him a 'Hooligan' because he was always running around gangs and such. Hence the title and the song.

    General CommentLove this song and I think there isn't much explaining to do about the lyrics. Only thing that amazes me is a hooligan would stay in school until he's 22!
