"Our Lawyer Made Us Change the Name of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued" as written by Andrew John Hurley, Peter Lewis Wentz, Patrick Martin Stump and Joseph Mark Trohman....
Brothers and sisters put this record down
Take my advice ('cause we are bad news)
We will leave you high and dry
It's not worth the hearing you'll lose

It's just past 8 and I'm feeling young and reckless
The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas."

We're only liars, but we're the best (we're the best)
We're only good for the latest trends
We're only good cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

Brothers and sisters, yeah, put these words down
Into your notebook (spit lines like these)
We're friends when you're on your knees
Make them dance like we were shooting their feet

It's just past 8 and I'm feeling young and reckless
The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas."

We're only liars, but we're the best (we're the best)
We're only good for the latest trends
We're only good cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

We're only liars, but we're the best
We're only good for the latest trends

We're only liars, but we're the best
We're only good for the latest trends
We're only good cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

    General Commenti'm not to sure about thsi one, but at a guess i think their deliberately going exaggerating how you can get sued for the stupidest things these days despite it just being some entertainment.
    "we're only good cause you can have all those famous friends,
    besides we've got such good fashion sense..." The way the lines sound makes it seem like they dont really care about all the 'glamourous' aspects of being famous, they just wanna make music maybe?
    I'm probly wrong but hey, just a guess :)
    Sounds great whatever, f.o.b r0ck! :D

    General Commentthis song was originally called "My Name Is David Ruffin, and These Are The Temptations", so they had to change the name obviously because david ruffin was in the temptations and it could have been a law suite, but this song is awsome, the new cd is gonna be hot.

    General Comment"brothers and sisters yea put these words down into your notebook"
    i still do this, and i'm in college.
    bad habits break hard, i guess.

    still love the album, despite somehow feeling insulted by them slaughtering the population of their fans with half of the songs. they hate a scene they created. catch 22?
