Well I really don't know
if it matters at all so
but we try to keep the prices low
for our records and our shows
but is that
is that enough
or is it that we're not punk enough
or is it that you think ska just sucks
but Johnny Quest, he thinks we're what?

Johnny Quest thinks we're sellouts, sellouts
Johnny Quest thinks we're sellin' out, we're sellin' out, yeah
Johnny Quest thinks we're sellouts, sellouts
Johnny, yeah

Well I really don't know
if it matters at all so
but we try to keep the prices low
for our records and our shows
does it matter
that you see our shirts
besides going to school and going to work
or that you think that ska just sucks
Johnny Quest, he thinks we're what?

Johnny Quest thinks we're sellouts, sellouts
Johnny Quest thinks we're sellin' out, we're sellin' out, yeah
Johnny Quest thinks we're sellouts, sellouts
Johnny, yeah

Johnny Quest thinks we're sellouts, sellouts
Johnny Quest thinks we're sellin' out, we're sellin' out, yeah
Johnny Quest thinks we're sellouts, sellouts
Johnny, yeah

    General Comment"Johnny Quest" is the nickname that LTJ gave a kid who insulted LTJ saying they "ruined Gainesville punk rock" with their horns and ska. I guess they got revenge, didnt they?

    General CommentThis song is really funny. You can tell the guys are making fun of people, especially the punk purists ("God! How dare they do something that actually has a melody and requires skill? POSERS!")

    Song FactFrom what I heard when I saw them and Reel Big Fish in January, they said that at one of their early shows a kid with blonde hair that resembled the cartoon character named Jonny Quest called them sellouts. They in turn made this song, although now they admit if someone called them sell outs today they would completely agree.

    General Commentbut there's MORE lyrics that aren't there.

    But they're here


    Well I
    Really don't know
    If it matters at all so
    But we try to keep the prices low
    for our records, and our shows
    it doesn't matter
    you haven't seen our shows
    besides going to school and going to work
    or is it that you think that ska just sucks
    Johnny Quest he thinks we're WHAT?

    Boo-yah.
