Cruisin' downtown in your Camaro,
REO Speedwagon on the stereo.
It's kind of catchy,
Kind of a virus,
Cutting your hair like Billy Ray Cyrus.
You're probably bummed,
You probably cried,
You're probably sad that the guy from Lynrd Skynrd died,
You're probably singing "oh, oh, oh",
All night long.

Chorus"
Feel the power of the PHANTOM MULLET,
Tremble and cower from the PHANTOM MULLET,
White metal burn of the PHANTOM MULLET,
Combed straight or permed it's THE PHANTOM MULLET,
And you, cutting it short on top,
I want that for me.
Growing it long in the back,
So savage and so free.

Drop into first you're taking it slow,
You're such a rock-star,
You could never know.
I wish I was singing, "oh, oh, oh",
All night long.

    General CommentI can't believe that this group thought of writing about a phantom mullet...Incredible, I love the fact that this is something impossible, it only makes me imagine what the phantom mullet acutally is...but why would someone say such a thing about a mullet being phantom? this song makes no sense, but I have to say that it makes me wanna listen to it and wonder.

    General CommentWell, I've more than likely over-analyzed it, for I have found a somewhat theological meaning in it.

    You know as they say about mullets; "business in the front, party in the back," or something to that effect. Well, I believe this could be pointing to those hypocrites who are "all business" upfront, but on the side they've still got their selfish addictions and such.

    ...But its probably just a song about how preposterous mullets are, and furthering and perpetuating the stereotyping of them.
