[Verse 1]
I'd love to tell them what to say,
but you just wouldn't appreciate.
Said hey ma, tried to be the greatest (the greatest).
Not the cans, not the trash,
it's not gonna' make me "right".
But my daddy's coming home,
I haven't walked the dog or cleaned the gutters.

I tried (I tried) to be the greatest.
I failed (I failed) to be the greatest son.

[Verse 2]
Clean the room, that is my tomb,
my sanity's left me 'till next june,
and all I want to do is ride my bike (ride my bike).
Doing homework is so lame,
the worlds a big nintendo game.
I'm only 12 years old,
(when next year comes) "13 and hating life".

Pack my bags and hitch a ride,
I don't need no purple huffy bike.
I'm going to vegas to hit it big,
pretty soon I'll be 15.
Hey ma take a look at me,
I'll make the world my industry.
I am a freakin' anarchist!
Am I old enough to gamble?
