I have no hobbies and no education
Some of the girls call me a jerk
My only goal in life is marriage
Then I will never have to work

You were always, always such a bore
But now you won't nag no more
Silence is golden, you know
Dead boys don't say no


Hold my hand; let's go for a walk
Our relation is neat and clean
I will sleep with you if I have to
A duty I perform like a machine

Watch TV; eat fast food
Let us stare at the walls
Then we spend every weekend
In the suburban shopping malls

You were always, always such a bore
But now you won't nag no more
Silence is golden, you know
Dead boys don't say no


Wanna be boring and ordinary

Buy us a tralier and a station wagon
And a dog; that would be nice
And maybe some sex on your vacation
I reckon that'll have to suffice

You're a pervert; you're a liar
Where have you been all night?
Get your hands off my body and
Get the hell out of sight

You were always, always such a bore
But now you won't nag no more
Silence is golden, you know
Dead boys don't say no

    My InterpretationIt's about a suburb middle-class younger girl who thinks she's perfect but without anything to support that thought with.

    She wants a floor-rug boyfriend that will do everything she wants for her (which is not a lot, but more is always nice), whereas she will perform her duty of sex, which should suffice for him to be happy.

    At a certain point she believes he has cheated on her, which enrages her (she's all that and then some, how does he dare?), so she breaks up with him in whichever was she deems best for her self-esteem.
