White girl living in the big city
In a big apartment house
She's living with her boyfriend now

She drives off every day for school and work
She washes dishes now
And watches tv on the pull out couch

And every day's the same

White girl moved back to the suburbs
And she finally found a man
Who knows how to take care of her

She bought the perfect little house
And the lawn's well manicured
And she'd never missed a day of work

And every day's the same

White girl couldn't go on knowing
She was just here wasting her time
She drowned in the lake last night

They found her bloated body floating
But she still walks around
Performing all her daily chores

She still don't know what life's about

Cause every day's the same
And she's got no one to love

    General Commentyeah i agree, maybe they didnt know it was a screeching weasel song, i personally think the screeching weasel version is better, but its still a good atempt at a cover, father seems to think its better than screeching weasel, but father knows shit

    General CommentI know Screeching Weasel wrote it. But why did Blink182 release it first? Who recorded it first? Kill the Musicians and Buddha were probably recorded in an overlapping time frame. In any case, don't be a dick cuz someone didn't know it was Screeching Weasel that wrote it. It was covered VERY close to its written date, so anyone could have made that mistake.

    Oh yeah, the song is really great, a total absurdist song. Screeching Weasel's version is much better, so check it out if you haven't.

    General CommentDUDE! I THINK YOU MUGHT HAVE SAT ON THE CAPS LOCK KEY. THERE'S NO NEED TO BE SO FUCKING LOUD! Anyhoo, I like this song because it shows the way that some people live such mundane and ordinary lives, it's almost depressing. This song is a bit like '1985' by Bowling for Soup (and, no, I'm not going to say: 'BOWLIN 4 SOOP FUCKIN ROX! BLINK SUX!'), where you have this woman who was going to be a superstar model groupie, and ends up married to some guy with two kids living in the suburbs. Unless you realise your dreams and do something about them, you're going to end up like those chicks.

    General CommentBlink actualy recorded this song around 1996, after the original buddha demo was recorded. That's why it sounds so different from the rest of the album.
