"Jeff Wears Birkenstocks" as written by and Mike Burkett....
Don't want to chill, don't want to sit
Don't want to hear no chippy shit
Don't tell me I've closed my mind

Don't want to groove don't want to dig
Don't want to spend the day naked
Don't like my music country fried

He's got a tye dyed Rancid shirt
Wears his Birkenstocks to work
Is he a jerk? No! Just confused
Jeff don't wear regular shoes

Fat Mike I gotta let you know
It's not the tunes, it's their live show
And all the people you get to meet
Plenty of good vibes and decent drugs
Stinky people give you hugs
Walk around in your bare feet

He's got a tye dyed Rancid shirt
Wears his Birkenstocks to work
Is he a jerk? No! Just confused
Jeff don't wear regular shoes
Jeff don't wear regular shoes

    General Commentyea in one of the interviews on their site he says its about some hippie at his work that like punk, but also likes Grateful Dead and wears tie dye shirts. He wants there to be more punk shirts in tie dye, which is why hes confused hah.

    General CommentYeah, it's about a poser type that thinks it's cool to be a hippie and a punk.

    General Commentinteresting. I always thought the line was "tie-dyed, rancid shirt", which of course it is, but in the lower-case meaning that the shirt smelled bad. Knowing that it actually was a tie-dyed Rancid (the band) shirt makes the whole thing that much funnier. Thanks for the info, mtbaird.
