"S. R." as written by and Aaron Barrett....
What ever happened to suburban rhythm?
Why did Ed and Scott quit?
Please don't go, Suburban Rhythm!
All the other bands are just shit!

A real big fish en de la mer because
I start a record company that's gonna repair
They mess up all the lyrics and they got no style
I say, "They're gonna get it right, but it might take a while"

Don't touch that dial
I've never been told if we're that good
And I said I'd never, never play with a ska band again
I guess I never showed up

What ever happened to suburban rhythm?
Why did Ed and Scott quit?
(Would you please drop some bass and shit?)
Please don't go, Suburban Rhythm
All the other bands are just shit
(You said it!)

    General CommentBig Fish ------------------------------------ Because
    Signed On The Record Company Gonna Get Paid
    I Said They Messed All They Lyrics And They Got No Style
    Say They Gonna Get It Right But It Might Take Awhile
    Don't Touch That Dial
    That's All That I Make Out If YOu Want Lyrics You Could Buy The CD Which Has Lyrics
    Anybody Correct Me If I'm Wrong At The 1 verse I Tried To Do

    General CommentWell the reel big fish said that they got it made,
    because they signed a record company they're gonna get paid
    "I said...don't tough that dial" is all right,
    but the next verse of the rap is pretty damn near impossible to understand

    General CommentI have a copy of the original Everything Sucks. On it is S.R. The real words to this song diss on bands like No Doubt, and Sublime. But once the band signed to Mojo they were forced to rewrite. or something like that.

    General CommentI can't change the levels enough into the second part of the rap, but here's what I could get from the song...

    Brrrdaah stick ‘em ha ha ha stick ‘em
    Brrrdaah stick ‘em ha ha ha stick ‘em

    What every happened to Suburban Rhythm
    Why did Ed and Scott quit
    Please don’t go Suburban Rhythm
    All the other bands are just shit

    Well the Reel Big Sish said that they got it made
    Because they signed with a record company they gonna get paid
    I said they mess up on the lyrics and they got no style
    Said they gonna get it right but it might take a while (whoo whaa)
    Don’t touch that dial

    Huuhh
    And I’ll never seem to blah blah blung blung gun
    Say I’ll never never play with those guys again
    ‘Cause I never showed up

    So what ever happened to Suburban Rhythm
    Why did Ed and Scott quit (would you please drop the gangsta shit)
    Please don’t go suburban rhythm
    All the other bands are just shit
