You're a yob or you're a wanker -
Take your fucking choice;
So who is your favorite genius:
James Hird or James Joyce?

You ever seen a live performance?
Join the wanker club.
You thought I meant table top dancing?
You're a yobbo, bub.

What are ya? Yob or wanker?

Wankers once used mobile phones,
But now that's sorta changing;
And yobs once lived in cottage homes
Ain't social change amazing?

If a yob and wanker want a girl,
The wanker guy will get her -
Both are equally ugly,
But the wanker hides it better.

A wanker fights inequality,
And for people's rights;
A wanker fights class prejudice.
A yobbo just fights.

Yob or wanker - wanker or yob -
Pass me the brush to tar ya;
Make your choice then live your life:
Come on, pal: what are ya?

    General Commentfor those who don't know, TISM are a great aussie band that diss icons in popular culture, aussie celebrities and politicians. this is one of their greatest songs about wankers and yobs (wankers are the rich guys that walk around in suits and carry briefcases, yobs are lazy guys that just sit and watch the rugby while drinking cheap beer)
