When I came outta my momma, they cut the umbilical cord
I thought, Hey man, what're you doin'? And I let out a mighty roar
I got my first piercing when they stabbed me with a pin,
Pumped me full of something and hit me in the shin
Ever since that moment I've just been full of scorn
I've been a punk rock baby since the day that I was born

I got my first Mohawk at the age of one,
Stole my old man's razor and then the job was done
I got a leather jacket at the age of two,
Put spikes all over it with some superglue
I started scratchin' at my pants until they were all torn
I've been a punk rock baby since the day that I was born

I picked up my first electric guitar at the age of three,
Turned the volume up just as high as it could be
I yelled into the mic about all the things I felt
About this nasty world and the cards we've all been dealt
About the toxic sludge that made me angry and forlorn
I've been a punk rock baby since the day that I was born

I dropped out of nursery school at the age of four,
I said, Hey this place is boring, I am goin' out the door
I headed straight downtown, sat down in the park,
Met some other punks, stayed out 'til way past dark
Partied 'til the dawn, came back home in the morn
I've been a punk rock baby since the day that I was born

I moved into a squat at the age of five,
Behind the barricades I waited for the cops to arrive
I climbed onto the roof and said, Here's where I'm gonna stay
And I'm gonna be a rebel until I'm old and gray
Between the toes of your establishment I'll always be a thorn
I've been a punk rock baby since the day that I was born,
I've been a punk rock baby since the day that I was born
