"Punkrocker" as written by Joakim Frans Ahlund, Klas Frans Ahlund, Patrik Knut Arve and James Newell Osterberg....
You see me drivin' down the street
I'm just not looking good
I got both hands off the wheel
I got you runnin'
I'm listening to music you can't hear
I got pretty music in my ear

Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

I see you standing in the street
And you can't stay on your feet
And your walking in your sleep
Right across the street
You can hear me laughing to myself
You can hear the music in my head

Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

You see me drivin' down the street
I'm just not looking good
You see me drivin' in my car
I'm drivin' in my sleep
I'm listening to music you can't hear
I got pretty music in my ear

Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

    General CommentEverybody who doubts the artist to this song is wrong. These are the lyrics to the Teddybears STHLM version of it. They later renamed their band for US success and rerecorded the song with Iggy Pop and a few revised lyrics.

    The one on "Soft Machine" has those altered lyrics. Not this one.

    General CommentThis is odd as Hell. There's this really obscure (or so I thought) song called Hiphopper and this song is quite clearly a parody of that song. Look it up, it's by Thomas Rusiak.

    General CommentAlright, I got that backwards. Apparently Hiphopper is a parody of Punkrocker.

    General CommentThese are the lyrics to the Caesars version of the song which came out a few months earlier. Joakim Åhlund is the guitarist for both bands.

    General CommentActually I'm pretty sure the Caesars song has been out for years...Cherry Kicks was released a long time ago, when they were still Caesars Palace. One trend with those guys is, they're not afraid to re-release, and re-release the same songs on new albums. So this isn't a surprise...

    General CommentI think the lyrics are..

    You see me drivin' down the street, I'm bored with looking good
    I got both hands on the wheel, The cops are comin'
    I'm listening to music with no fear
    You can hear it too if you're sincere

    Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

    I see you standing in the street, and you can't stay on your feet
    And your faking in your sleep, you wish that you were deep
    You can't hear me laughing to myself
    If you could you would be someone else

    Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

    You see me die on bleaker street, I'm bored with being God
    You see me steerin' in my car, I'm drivin' to my star
    I'm listening to music with no fear
    You can hear it too if you're sincere

    Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

    Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
    Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

    so catchy!! I can't stop listening it again and again
