"The Boy With The Perpetual Nervousness" as written by and B. Million G. Mercer....
There's a kid I know but not too well
He doesn't have a lot to say
Well this boy lives right next door and he
Never has nothin' to say

It doesn't seem like he does anything
He never helps out in the yard
He lets his mother carry in groceries
'Cause he doesn't plan to work too hard

The boy next door is into better things
As far as I can see
The boy next door is into bigger things
The boy next door is me, all right

Well he's not like the boys we used to have
Not like them at all, oh no
Those ones made their parents proud
This one beats 'em all

The boy next door is into better things
As far as I can see
The boy next door is into bigger things
The boy next door is me, yeah

    General CommentIn reply to the first comment - he's not *blaming* the boy next door - just the opposite. He is coming to the realization that he *is* that boy. He can pretend that he's above all those petty obligations because he's "into bigger things", but the truth is he's only justifying himself for being lazy and disrespectful. And now that he's recognized it, it's time to change.

    Yah, go ahead and blame your own awkwardness on the boy next door. That'll solve all of those issues that tear you to pieces on the inside so much. It's time to take some responsibility, guys. You're great musicians, though.
