How many people wanna kick some ass

I used to be a nerd
Grew up in the suburbs
Nothing there ever went wrong
I made it up in this song
I talk about the hood
I say stuff like it's all good
Tell people I'm down with all the cool kids downtown
When I've never even been there

(Chorus)
How many people wanna kick some ass
I do, I do
And how many people are sick of holding it back
I am, Well I am too
So don't lay another finger on her
She's mine and I still want her
If you put your hands upon her
You're a goner, goner
And how many people and sick of holding it back
I am, I am
And how many people wanna kick some ass
I would if I could
But I'm really just a sensitive artist
Perpetrated like I am the hardest

So spin your cap around to the back
You think you rhyme, but you can't rap
Loosen that strap a little more
Til your ax hits the floor
Flip off your fans, make em cheer
Try to look sincere
Anger's today's fashion
So sing another song about bashing someone's head in

(Chorus)
Acting like I'm not the smartest
I'm really just a sensitive artist

So don't lay another finger on her
She's mine and I still want her
If you put your hands upon her
You're a goner, goner
And how many people are sick of holding it back
I am, I am
And how many people wanna kick some ass

I said how many people wanna kick some ass
How many people wanna kick some ass
Whatcha gonna do when you're sick of holding it back
I think I'll kick some ass
How many people wanna kick some ass
I would if I could
But I'm really just a sensitive artist
Perpetrated like I am the hardest
Acting like I'm not the smartest
I'm really just a sensitive artist, honest

    General CommentAnother version of this song exists that has the f word in the chorus.

    "I am, Well I am too
    So don't lay a fuckin' finger on her
    She's mine and I still want her "

    General CommentMy girlfriend loves this song, and she listens to it alot. SHe decifered it for me. She thinks it basically is about how everyone made fun of him when he was a a geeky teenager and how he just wants to kick their asses now that he's older and stronger.

    Also, she thinks the chorus is possibly about a time when some guy might have f-cked around with his girlfriend and he's pissed so he's gonna kick his ass.

    This song is wicked sweet. It says so much with so little.

    General CommentNot to disrespect SublimeNick, but this song is actually just making fun of bands like Limp Bizkit. You know, "you think you rhyme but you can't rap" and so on. However, the writer also is making fun of himself a little bit; he knows he's nothing more than a sensitive artist, nothing close to a badass; yet sometimes he kind of wishes he could be one, too. If you note the line "so write another song about bashing someone's head in", and you know the line "I think I'm gonna bash his head in" from Stroke 9's "Little Black Backpack", you understand how he's mocking himself a little bit.

    General Commenti saw them in concert they rule and this song isnt about him being a sensitive artist cause he isnt. He is a bad ass. I met them got the autographs and the lead singer had his hand down some chicks pants and i was talkin to the manager it was great. Oh the envy i have...
