my mom told me to get a job
work with my neighbor bob
why can't i get some sympathy?
don't yell at me
i'm almost 18 and not to mention
i'm so poor i can't afford to pay attention
what can i say?
we don't get paid

we're just like you and we're never gonna make it
we're too dumb to be rich and famous
record companies don't even wanna claim us
we suck (yeah!)
but who can blame us?

is it the way i comb my hair?
the way i talk?
the way i walk?
the clothes i wear?
what can i say?
we don't get paid
i don't wanna throw my life away
i don't wanna throw my life away

we're just like you and we're never gonna make it
we're too dumb to be rich and famous
record companies don't even wanna claim us
we suck (yeah!)
but who can blame us

but who can blame us

don't wanna throw my life away tonight tonight all right
dont wanna throw my life away tonight tonight all right
don't wanna throw my life away tonight tonight all right
don't wanna throw my life away tonight

we're just like you and we're never gonna make it
we're too dumb to be rich and famous
record companies don't even wanna claim us
we suck (yeah!)
but who can blame us

we're just like you and we're never gonna make it
we're too dumb to be rich and famous
record companies don't even wanna claim us
we suck but who can blame us
we suck but who can blame us
so do you but you can't blame us

my girlfriend swears to this day that we're never gonna play on the radio
