I like doo-wop and the blues
I like heavy metal songs
Tell me why I got to choose
Which side of your fence I'm on?

Are you with me, or are you leaving?
Are you argumentative?
You all want some true believin;, why'd you act so t-t-tenative?

Don't you act so sentimental, kid you've got some nerve.
The reason I like the instrumentals is cause they haven't got any words.

(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Show me what you got, play it for me honey

I like Johnny Walker Red, I like being juxtaposed.
I like seeing Johnny's dad wearing Johnny's mother's clothes.
I like the prince and you like the king, we both like the way Freddie Mercury sings.
We're in too deep to call this thing a fling, so which one of you's gonna let me swing?

Don't you act so sentimental, kid you've got some nerve.
The reason I like the instrumentals is cause they haven't got any words. Yeah!

(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Show me what you got, play it for me honey

(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Show me what you got, play it for me honey

I'd like to take this opportunity to say:
You can be a man of faith, or you can be a hired gun.
You be 1988, and I'll be 1941.
Quit acting like a momma's boy, instead of your father's son.

(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Show me what you got, play it for me honey

(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
(doo-wop-wop-wop)
Show me what you got, play it for me honey

    General CommentI definitely love this song. I don't know what it is! It's fun to sing along to, and I love how he says
    "I like the prince and you like the king..." It was totally unexpected but awesome. I also like "face of the earth"
