I got no cash,
got no girl,
but I got the world in the palm of my hand
and I don't care
if you care
or if you understand
because i'm a little kid
and I've got little problems and I don't give a shit if you don't understand
because:
I got me.
That's all I need.
And I live comfortably, and I sleep peacefully.
I give up.
I don't want to hear,
I don't want to be near you or your friends and your dime a dozen miseries.
I don't care
if you care
about the way you wear your hair
or your shoes or your idiot attitude.
Don't stop because I want to hear your problems.
Don't you stop because I want to help you solve them.
Don't stop.

    General CommentCatch 22 is the best! They have their ska beat and they just go so fast with awesome lyrics and their songs actually have a point to most of them. You just gotta love this band.
