I want you to go
I want you to know that I hate you so
And all the fucken boys in the fucken bands
Just shut up and get outta my car
Nothing you know won't get you far enough the hell away from me
Oh no!
All the girls can see what you really are
So don't mind me
Now that little boy genius thinks he's a star
You think you're so cool, breaking every rule--a boy that drools!
And they say that I knew better than this
Well hell, Of course I did
Gimme brains for breakfast baby
And gimme more for lunch
Throw me a bone for dinner yeah yeah
A girl could starve on a boy like you
With nothing left to offer so that means that we're through
And yeah so that also means that we're not friends, alright?
Call call call call call
You don't know me at all
So don't try to talk about how old is Fitz and that your daddy's sick
A boy is good for nothing, can't give you nothing
I'm sick of nothing
And all the girls that sing along go "yeah yeah yeah"
Don't call me for charity you lack
Just watch your back
You got all the girls with fangs, now it's a shark attack
You think you're so cool, breaking every rule--a boy that drools!
And all they say is that I knew better than this
Well hell of course I did!
Gimme me brains for breakfast baby
And gimme more for lunch, yum!
Throw me a bone for dinner yeah yeah
A girl could starve on a boy like you
With nothing left to offer so that means that we're through
And yeag so that also means that we're not friends, alright!

    General Commenti like to think this is about a pro-feminist who went back to his old ways all of a sudden.

    General Commenthahaha my girls & I yell the lyrics when we listen to this in the car. it's awesome. I love the chorus part where she's making fun of boys & how they lack intelligence - 'Gimme brains for breakfast baby
    And gimme more for lunch
    Throw me a bone for dinner yeah yeah' I also recently found out that bratmobile was in the city I live in awhile back. too bad I didn't know of em then.

    General Commentshe wants the boys to give her brains but "a girl could starve on a boy like you" therefore...there are no brains in their heads!
    [boys lie is a good comp :)]

    My InterpretationI think it's about zombies (male ones specifically). She encountered a zombie and he wanted her brain, but she said no.
