"Da Strike" as written by and Fredrik Larzon Mathias Farm....
You strike get pissed that is just the way it is use your
nose to the melancholy funk sound we are just a couple
of local bowlers hangin' out tonight leavin' all the girls
behind.

So what's a girl compared to a perfect game I guess a lot
if you find the right one if I had to choose between a bowl
and you I'm not tellin' you you're taking it the wrong way

I love the feeling that I get when I strike that's the only
time I feel alive don't need you babe just need to strike I
love the feeling that I get when I strike

You are in trance when you slick into the area you pass
the sa when you're taking off your pumas the way we
bowl is cleaner then the other styles it's pro but they say
we're doin' it the wrong way.

So I guess you must be crazy to be bowlin' like we do it's
cool we're doin' it our own way no fools no girls just the
rude boys from the south kickin' it slickin' it trickin' it
again.

Yes that's right bowlin' is allright the only time I feel alive
is when I'm hangin' at the A-house that's right pass me
those shoes I'm ready for the perfect game so watch me
shoot.

If you get upset and you don't understand it's quite
allright just follow your instincts physical activity is the
way to free your mind so get on your feet and bowl to the
funky beat.

    General CommentFirst let me say that Millencolin is one of my favorite bands. I have all their albums and can sing along to nearly every song... but they have some of the WORST lyrics I have ever heard! THIS SONG IS ABOUT BOWLING! I-i-i-it's about going bowling and having a lot of fun... punk bands aren't supposed to have good wholesome fun for the whole family! "Bowl to the funky beat"? I've tried to bowl to a funky beat and was almost arrested for lewd conduct...

    General CommentBerkowitz, I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but you really crossed the line with your post. I'm not a huge fan of this song myself, but I love MC, and have for a long time. It boggles my brain that a fan as big as you claim to be could completely miss the point of what they are about. Do you not pay attention to the lyrics of their songs? When Nikola cries that he doesn't need "you or your crew to tell [me] what you think or do" or when he says he "won't waste [my] time fitting in" were you just not paying attention. People like you who claim that punks bands HAVE to act in a certain way, and that they CAN'T have fun is ludicrous. What's so cool about the Swedish Monkeys is that they DO have fun, act up, and be themselves. They don't need to be your typical bad-@$$ punk group to get by, and you as a self-proclaimed MC fan should know and understand that. Sorry, but that's just the way it is. So instead of saying Da Strike has the worst lyrics ever, you should be saying that you have the worst attention span ever.

Just let them be great and do what they do best... Make and play music! Damn i love Millencolin

    General CommentMillencolin is my favorite band and I happen to love this song. One of the greatest things about Nikola (when he writes the lyrics) is that he writes about what matters to HIM. He's not concerned about what people are going to think. Most people know that MC are huge fans of bowling and this song shows that.

    General CommentHow do their lyrics suck? I think they write some of the best lyrics in punk music. Sure, there's a language barrier and you kind of tell sometimes, but their lyrics always hit home for me

    if your lonely if yout happy feeling swell or feeling blue they might have the tune for you
