([Gerard]: Well, are you ready, Ray?
[Ray]: Yeah
[Gerard]: How about you, Frank?
[Frank]: Oh, I'm there, baby
[Gerard]: How about you, Mikey?
[Mikey]: Fuckin' ready
[Gerard]: Well, I think I'm alright)

1-2-3-4, oh

3-2-1 we came to fuck
Everybody party 'til the gasman comes
Sparkle like Bowie in the morning sun
And get a parking violation on La Brea 'til it's done
Hair back
Collar up
Jet black
So cool
Sing it like the kids that are mean to you
C'mon

When you wanna be a movie star (c'mon)
Play the game and take the band real far (c'mon)
Play it right and drive a Volvo car (c'mon)
Pick a fight at an airport bar

The kids don't care if you're all right honey
Pills don't help but it sure is funny
Gimme gimme some of that vampire money come on

Oh you look like somebody I used to know

Well uh, 3-2-1 we got the bomb
Everybody hurry 'til the tax man comes
Glimmer like Bolan in the morning sun
And get your finger on the trigger
Tap the barrel of a gun
Hair back, motherfucker
Jet black
So cool
Sing it like the kids that are mean to you (c'mon)

When you wanna be a movie star (c'mon)
Play the game and take the band real far (c'mon)
Play it right and drive a Volvo car (c'mon)
Pick a fight at an airport bar

The kids don't care if you're all right honey
Pills don't help but it sure is funny
Gimme gimme some of that vampire money come on

Uh, fuck yeah
That's right
1-2-3-4
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Well, 3-2-1 we came to fuck
Everybody party 'til the gasman comes
Sparkle like Bowie in the morning sun
And get a parking violation on La Brea 'til it's done
Hair back
Collar up
Jet black
So cool
Sing it like the kids that are mean to you (c'mon)

When you want to be a movie star (c'mon)
Play the game and take the band real far (c'mon)
Play it right and drive a Volvo car (c'mon)
Pick a fight at an airport bar

The kids don't care if you're all right honey
Pills don't help but it sure is funny
Gimme gimme some of that vampire money come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
On, on, on, on

Hey, I'm talkin' here
This party is gettin' way too loud
We're gonna have to turn it down a little
Sorry

    General CommentI think it's hilarious that they didn't want to 'sell out' to the Twilight franchise, so much so that they wrote a song about it, but were quite happy to let Glee cover Sing.

    General CommentI really enjoy the references to David Bowie and Marc Bolan, two 70s glam rockers who actually looked pretty cool in glitter. I think the song sort of takes the piss out of what vampires have become because of the Twilight books (the references to driving a Volvo, etc).

    General CommentIs the intro an allusion to Sweet's (another glamrock band) Ballroom Blitz?

    General CommentOk just so you guys know this is the one song that has nothing to do with the rest of the album. Its about the band being asked to do a song for one of the Twilight film soundtracks and how they thought it was pathetic that good musicians were selling out to these awful films. Hence the reason they make fun of the vampires sparkling like Bowie and such. Its actually kind of a funny song, I love it. Oh, and in case you don't believe me the line "Gimmie gimmie some of that vampire money c'mon!" should do it for ya.

    General CommentI've heard conflicting opinions on whether or not this has any bearing on the story of Danger Days. Some say it is JUST about turning down the offer of having a song in the Twilight Saga and about selling out, others say -- wikipedia, in particular -- that it is "bastardised" versions of the Killjoys who have 'sold out' and done things that they don't believe in during the story of Danger Days and they have become the 'bad guys' in their own eyes by the end of it.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I don't really have the story of the album down yet as I have only had the chance to listen to it once, and I also haven't properly paid that much attention as, again, I haven't had chance.

    General Commentna na na is great and reinvented the image and provided it's own album style completely different from it's predecessors, yet kept some element of essential mcr. this song just plain rocks it and stands out on the album. i read that this album was going to be straight rock and none of the band stuff in black parade, this song is what i had in mind. i agree with seeingred; this song is fun and b.a.
