Saw you at the mall this weekend
Its pretty good to see your face.
A lot of things are changing girlfriend,
(?) Especially since I'm getting my own place.

Everybody still hates school,
I guess about nothing's changed.
My mom was asking how you're doing,
She still thinks we should get married.

It's alright, cuz I really wanna see you tonight.
Aw yeah, it's alright,
Cuz they'll leave, I'll get to see you tonight,
Cuz my folks are gone.

You got a job then bought an Impala
Your hat is where you lay your home
You figured how to work the shower,
But then you know it's time to go.

You said that you could tell I'm happy
And I'd like to look you up,
But you couldn't tell when would be a good time to visit,
There ain't no better time than now.

It's alright, Sgt. Pepper and the Goonies tonight.
Aw yeah, it's alright,
We could listen to your "Slippery When Wet,"
But really dry.

Never gone home, this is what you've been.
I can't get attacked cuz you're never around.

All the kids in the alleyway,
Never listen to what their mommy say.
Are we ready for a good time?
I can hear the brothers yellin' now.

I saw you at the mall last weekend.
Pretty much nothin's changin.

But aw yeah, it's alright,
Sgt. Pepper and the Goonies tonight.
It's alright. Well I really wanna see you tonight.
Aw yeah, IT'S ALRIGHT, well I really wanna see ya, REALLY wanna see ya tonight...

Cuz my folks are gone.

    General CommentOkAy... I couldn't find ANY of these lyrics in booklets/online, so I did my best to try to decipher it by just listening. I'm pretty sure I did an okay job.

    General CommentI forget where I heard this song, probably of one of the punk comps, but it is ok....Chixdiggit is ok, but they really aren't anything special. This is one of their better songs.

    General Comment"(?) Especially since I'm getting my own place." sounds more like "Since you're gone you've been replaced."

    General Comment"Cuz they'll leave, I'll get to see you tonight," should be "Can't believe i get to see you tonight"

    should be

    "And I should look you up when i come to town,
    when would be a good time to visit?
    There ain't no better time than now."

    But really dry.

    "Ghoulies" not "Goonies." Groovy Ghoulies is a band that CHIXDIGGIT tour with a lot. Also it's a bad horror movie that's fun to watch.

    "After Billy Bragg" not "But really dry."
