Terminal Preppie Lyrics

I go to college
That makes me so cool
I live in a dorm
And show off by the pool
I join the right clubs just to build an impression
I block out thinking, it won't get me ahead

My ambition in life
Is to look good on paper
All I want is a slot
In some big corporation

Belushi's my hero
I lampoon and I ape him
My news of the world comes from Sports Illustrated
I'm proud of my trophies like my empty beer cans
Stacked in rows up the wall to impress all my friends

No, I'm not here to learn
I just want to get drunk
And major in business
And be taught how to fuck


Win, win
I always play to win
Wanna fit in like a cog
In a faceless machine

I'm a terminal, terminal, terminal preppie
Terminal, terminal, terminal preppie
Terminal, terminal, terminal, terminal, terminal...

I want a wife with tits
Who just smiles all the time
In my centerfold world
Filled with Springsteen and wine
Some day I'll have power
Some day I'll have boats
A tract in some suburb
With Thanksgivings to host

I'm a terminal, terminal, terminal preppie
Terminal, terminal, terminal preppie
Terminal, terminal, terminal preppie

What really gets me about this song is that it's over 20 years later and literally every single thing Jello mentions in this song is STILL true. I've been to frat houses where the cans are stacked on the walls, kids still wear those damn shirts that say "College" like Belushi wore in Animal House. After all this time you'd think something would change.

An error occured.

this song is saying that every prep is going to college to "get ahead" and "suceed in life", but that this is what it really amounts to in American society.

It's from Plastic Surgery Disasters.

Gotta love that weird kazoo sound in the chorus.

Yes...it is hilarious...

This is sadly how alot of kids want to be and how they wanna live their lives. The aloure of $$ is all we as North-American kids are taught to care about.
