"Teenage Lobotomy" as written by and Thomas/cummings Erdelyi....
Lobotomy, lobotomy
Lobotomy, lobotomy
DDT did a job on me
Now I am a real sickie
Guess I'll have to break the news
That I got no mind to lose
All the girls are in love with me
I'm a teenage lobotomy

Slugs and snails are after me
DDT keeps me happy
Now I guess I'll have to tell 'em
That I got no cerebellum
Gonna get my Ph.D.
I'm a teenage lobotomy

Lobotomy, lobotomy
Lobotomy, lobotomy
DDT did a job on me
Now I am a real sickie
Guess I'll have to break the news
That I got no mind to lose
All the girls are in love with me
I'm a teenage lobotomy

    General Comment"what's a cerebellum?"

    Are you having a fucking joke? Or have you actually had a lobotomy yourself?

    What a spastic.

    General Comment"Teenage Lobotomy," written by the entire band, is yet another loud tribute to mental illness. Since the joke on the Leave Home LP was that the Ramones were doing Carbona, the joke on Rocket to Russia was that the band was now into DDT, the insecticide (also in "I Wanna Be Well").

    Song MeaningIt's talking about a lobotomy which is a surgery where you stick a knife up under the eyelid and scrape out most of the cerebellum to make a retard less retarded (ineffective...) where you end up with a living corpse. The entire song is a sarcastic statement saying YAY LOBOTOMIES!!! THEY'RE GREAT!
