Have you heard about the latest craze
That's sweepin' across the nation
All the punks from coast to coast
Have discovered an old invention:

"Your hair's too long
Man, you're a queer
You're too new wave
Put down that beer:"
And
Do the slag
Look at 'em run
Do the slag
Hey you scum
Do the Slag
Ain't it fun
Do the slag
Let's all be dumb
Badmouth people we don't know
Make sure it's behind their backs
Don't let new people in our scene
It's more fun than having a friend
We'll slag everyone each and every night
So we can pretend that we're all right
Make those pricks feel just so small
We'll show the world that we're three feet tall

Slander their integrity
Doubt their humanity
Talk about their haircuts
Are their politics correct?

Do the Slag!
Don't let those sissies on the floor
They're unhip, man, they bought the wrong clothes
Let's all do the latest craze
Cause having allies never pays
We'll slag everyone each and every night
So we can pretend that we're all right
Make those pricks feel just so small
We'll show the world that we're three feet tall

    General Comment:The song's about assholes in the scene that talk shit to others. I can relate to this, since, everytime I go to a show some dick thinks i'm weird and starts talking shit.
    It makes me actually wanna leave the punk scene. It's such a shame that something that once stood for something right is now overrun by preppie snobs.
    Whoever says "punks not dead" needs to open their eyes.

    General Comment:I found this first on a YouTube video. You know this would've sounded great recorded, if it wasn't for the half-assed production on Bedtime For Democracy.

    General Comment:Good stuff. I take to Jello's sarcasm on songs like this, along with his general ability to illustrate conflicts between the human psyche and society at large that are pretty much universal. But when he gets preachy, it can get a little awkward. For example, I think these lyrics are a much more inspiring assault on petty elitism than the lyrics to the other "anti-elitist" song on Bedtime for Democracy.
