Yeah, well, I'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want
(So tell us what ya want, what ya really really want)
I'll tell ya what I want, what I really really want
(So tell us what ya want, what ya really really want)
I want to ha, I want to ha, I want to ha, I want to ha
I want to really, really, really, want to zigga zigga, ah!
If you want to be my lover, you gotta get with my friends
Make it last forever, friendship never ends
If you want to be my lover, you have got to give
Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is.
Hey!

I'm not sick, but I'm not well.
And I'm so hot, 'cause I'm in hell.
I'm not sick, but I'm not well.
And it's a sin to live so well.

Ghetto superstar, that is what you are,
Coming from afar, reaching for the stars.
Run away with me, to another place
We can rely on each other, uh huh
From one corner to another, uh huh

Everybody (yeah)
Rock your body (yeah)
Everybody
Rock your body right.
Backstreet's back, all right!
All right!

So don't delay, act now, supplies are running out
But now, if you're still alive, six to eight years to arrive
And if you follow, there may be a tomorrow
But if the offer's shun, you might as well be walking on the sun
Might as well be walking on the sun!

Intergalactic planetary, planetary intergalactic
Intergalactic planetary, planetary intergalactic
Intergalactic planetary, planetary intergalactic

I get knocked down, but I get up again,
You're never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down, but I get up again
You're never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down, but I get up again
You're never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down, but I get up again
You're never gonna keep me down

Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light

I want to push you around, well I will, well I will
I want to push you down, well I will, well I will
I want to take you for granted
I want to take you for granted
Yeah, yeah, well I will

I want something else
To get me through this semi-charmed kinda life, baby baby
I want something else
I'm not listening when you say good-bye.

There's lots of pretty, pretty ones
That want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty ones
Will leave you low and blow your mind
We're all stars now in the dope show
We're all stars now in the dope show

Mmmbop, do floppa do wop
Do be dop ah
Do wap, do zap ah, do
Yeah-ee yeah
Mmmbop, do be 'zap ah, do wop
Do be dop ah
Do wop, doom zap ah, do

I smell sex and candy here
Who's that lounging in my chair?
Who's that casting devious stares in my direction?
Mama, this surely is a dream
Yeah, yeah mama, this surely is a dream
Dig it, yeah mama, this surely is

Closing time
One last call for alcohol
So finish your whiskey or beer
Closing time
You don't have to go home
But you can't stay here
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
I know who I want to take me home
Take us home.

'Cause it's closing time!
(Yeah it's closing time)
(We're talkin' 'bout closin' time)
(It's really closin' time)
(Hey!)

    General CommentStarfish, he has done a Polka song with lyrics from current popular songs on all of his albums the past 20 years. He does write his own music.

    General CommentHe writes his own music, you're just looking at one of his Polka songs. Have you even listened some of Al's works? Probably not. You just trotted along in here and decided 'ouh nu weerd al iz teh badde!!1' and maybe if you knew a little more, you'd know Al asks the bands before he does his parodies/polka melodies. And I can't stress enough how Al writes his own songs.

    General CommentStarfish: Every album has one polka song (such as this, and he always has permission), about half parodies (which he also has permission for) and about half entirely original songs, which in no way is anyone but Al responsible for.

    General CommentUmm.. yeah. I thought it was kind of obvious that these were other people's songs. You don't need to act so shocked. It's not the lyrics that make it funny, it's the fact that he can turn "Flagpole Sitta" and freaking Marilyn Manson into a polka song. I crack up every time he goes for Manson to Hanson. Woah, never noticed how that sounded.

    A lot of his other stuff is hilarious, and it's original in lyrics. I'd suggest listening to that stuff if you're really that offended by this song.

    General CommentThese Nursery Rhymes are taught at daycares. I asked a 3 year old what he wanted to drink and he said, "I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want, I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want, I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really, want, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want.....juice!!!!

    General Commenthe is a disgrace to music, very smilar to Fred Durst in a way, lol. and he writes his own music eh? these lyrics read just about the same as the songs theyre from! eg: the excerpt from closing time, strange isnt it? how the lyrics for this are the same as CLOSING TIME! same with sex and candy by Marcy Playground (a great not-so-popular band). besides, couldnt he at least re-write the lyrics to be his own? and J.Diddy(which is a sad pathetic name BTW) how could he have possible written his own music? he just put all these songs to a different beat...hes really just a crappy DJ when you look at it! so HA!
