I may be ten years old but I still know what's up.
I wear my Cramps shirt almost every single day.
I want to sag my pants.
I want to pogo dance,
but mom won't let me so I might just run away.
I wanna ride my skate.
I wanna stay out late.
I want a mohawk but mom won't let me get one.
I wanna go to shows.
Don't wanna pierce my nose.
I want a mohawk but mom won't let me get one.
I may be in fourth grade,
but I know what's going on.
I listen to the Misfits almost every single day.
Don't want to take a nap.
I want a TV tat,
but mom won't let me so I might just disobey.

    General CommentPunk in drublic says... to me this song says about how kids today kinda know what's going on in the world around them and should be treated with a bit more respect because of that awareness. but yeah...

    General CommentTHIS SONG MEANS, I THINK, THAT DAVEY, AS A KID, WANTED TO DO ALL THESE THINGS. HIS PARENTS, OF COURSE, STOPPED HIM. I THINK THAT PARENTS CAN BE VERY HARMFUL TO YOUR IDEAS. THATS ME THOUGH
