Open up your ears my friend
I’ll tell you a story that never ends
About the band that plays for you now
It started back in ‘91
started playin’ just for fun
and couldn’t stop ourselves, didn’t know how
Then we began playing shows
And kids started tapping their toes
and people kept askin’ for more
And even though we really sucked
We kept it up, didn’t give a fuck
‘Cause that’s what the music is for

We’re gunna take on the world
Common, Every boy, Every girl
We’re gunna take on the world
Common, Every boy, Every girl

Then a man from Hollywood
He said to sign, he said we should
But we were to drunk to respond
“You’ll be so rich” yeah said the man
“you’ll get a bus and leave the van”
but we were too punk to move on
So we went back on the road
And kids kept on coming to shows
We sang, danced, and drank lots of beer
And so it goes, we’ll never stop
We'll tour ‘til we reach the top
We’ll tour ‘til the end of our years...
