I'm a street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb
I am a world's forgotten boy
The one who searches and destroys

Honey gotta help me please
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby detonate for me

Look out honey, 'cause I'm using technology
Ain't got time to make no apology
Soul radiation in the dead of night
Love in the middle of a fire fight

Honey gotta strike me blind
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby penerate my mind

And I'm the world's forgotten boy
The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy
And honey I'm the world's forgotten boyt
The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy

Forgotten boy, forgotten boy
Forgotten boy said hey forgotten boy

    General CommentIt's also on this Beavis and Butthead CD thing, which is where I heard it, so it is covered by RHCP since I don't think CDs are allowed to be sold if they, you know, got the artist wrong or anything. But yeah, I really like this song, a lot, and I don't even like RHCP that much.

    General CommentAwesome cover, in my opinion. It's on the beavis and butt-head experience soundtrack. Love rollercoaster, appears on the beavis and butt-head do america. It's a bit confusing.
