So you wanna hang out with me tonight?
You're cool, but I'm right, so
I'll set the dial to "no fights."
And as we leave the club,
and the sun is coming up, you ask,
"Have I failed to entertain?"
I say no man, it's ok.


Cuz I already knew
that when I'm with you
Mediocrity rules, man.
Mediocrity rules.

Life is but a compromise
and I can see it in yr eyes that
nothing scares you like a real idea.
But no man, it's ok,
you didn't waste my day


Yabba dabba dabba doo, man.
Yabba dabba dabba doo.
Yabba dabba dabba doo, man.
Yabba dabba dabba dude.

    General CommentIt reminds me of some of my friendships, too. It's sad how so many people are just so resistant to change and to consider new ideas. Most people are just boring to me because they don't want to talk about anythng challenging.

    General CommentIt's about someone who has a date. But the date is very unsure. And the 'someone' just does like she like it

    General Commenti think it's about how some pple go on dates and want the person to like them and not cause an argument or debate because it might scare them off by making them really think about is different than what they are used to or intimidate them and they just settle for that even if it's just boring and pointless.

    General Commenti'm a boy. and i can tell you this about this song. guys suck, i'll admit it. we're totally mediocre. we're insincere, we never know what to say, we're deathly scared of reality, and for the most part, we're NOT entertaining, because we don't have the slightest idea of what's on women's minds. but we do love the flinstones.
