"Fentoozler" as written by Scott Raynor, Tom De Longe and Mark Hoppus....
At the risk of sounding rude
Just who the fuck
Do you think you are
To tell me what you
Expect of me today?
Well, you can take your attitude
You're out of luck,
You've gone way too far
If you think there's any chance
I'm gonna stay

[Chorus]
How long can I string you along?
How little of myself can I give
And still make you believe I care?

At the risk of sounding trite
Why the fuck
Do you think you're right
About every little thing
That you say?

And do you think that it is right
For Tom to spend another night
Writing songs about all the people
He thinks are gay?

[Chorus: x2]

    Song MeaningI'm 99% sure that this song is about Tom's dad who left him,and his family when he got kicked out of the school..




    ''How long can I string you along?
    How little of myself can I give
    And still make you believe I care?''

    The chorus is obviously reffering to all the try Tom did put into in everything he was doing so he can make his father be proud of him. Seems how this hadn't have happen until then..



    ''At the risk of sounding trite
    Why the fuck do you think you're right
    About every little thing that you say?''

    and

    ''At the risk of sounding trite
    Why the fuck do you think you're right
    About every little thing that you say?''


    The two verses are about Tom being sick how whatever he was doing wasn't enough or right for his father and about all the things that he was told to do.. He couldn't stand him anymore so he is asking him why you always think that you're right about every fuc*ing thing..



    ''And do you think that it is right
    For Tom to spend another night
    Writing songs about all the people he thinks are gay?''


    This one is a personal touch from Mark I guess :)


    So..Fentoozler means idiot and for me the whole song is going to Tom's father.. It's like a monologue

    General CommentFentoozler mostly likely made up.
    This is the song on how I feel about most people I come into contact with, every lyric to the "T".

    General CommentThis song has become my anthem. I love it. I mean, whenever I'm pissed off or whatever, I just slam on this song, and it's like "HA HA HA!" I'm suddenly in a better mood! I agree though, that Blink's earlier stuff is their best, even if I did just buy their cd's in 2002... :$ BUt yeah. defintely an awesome song, and an awesome album!
