Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Ah, oh, yeah, my, my, my,
My, my.
Life is strange.
People don't change.
We still choose guns
And murder is still fun.
Now culture may come
And culture may go,
But shit still stinks,
And flowers still grow.
I'm all chewed up.
(What you gonna do?)
I'm all chewed up.
(What you gonna do?)
I'm all chewed up.
(What you gonna do?)
Man, I tend to get my kicks from just a-watching the whole thing burn.
I tend to get my kicks from just watching it burn.
I speculate is it the booze that burns or is it
Drug-related?
If they serve me up one decent situation
I will call you up and tell you all about it
All about it,
On the telephone,
On the telephone,
On the telephone.
Whooo, yeah.
Woo!
Hey, yeah, my, my, my,
My, my.
Hey.
Life stinks,
So I drink.
You can call it reliance;
I call it science.
Now people take shit,
And people talk shit,
And people eat shit, But I'm not gonna eat shit. I'm all chewed up. (What you gonna do?)
I'm all chewed up.
(What you gonna do?)
I'm all chewed up.
(What you gonna do?)
Man, I tend to get my kicks from just a-watching the whole thing burn.
I tend to get my kicks from just watching it burn.
I speculate is it the booze that burns or is it
Drug-related?
If they serve me up one decent situation
I will call you up and tell you all about it
All about it,
On the telephone,
On the telephone, uh,
On the telephone, hey,
Whooo, yeah.
I, eh, woo.
Doodle doo doo doo doo da, dum, dadda da,
Oh, oh
Oh, my, my,
Look at what your children can buy.
Oh, my, my,
Look at what your children can buy.
Oh, my, my,
Look at what your children can buy.
Oh, my, my,
Look at what your children can buy.
Oh, my, my,
Look at what your children can buy.
Oh, I tend to get my kicks from just a-watching the whole thing burn.
