Mom and dad they quite don't understand it,
All the kids they laugh as if they planned it
Why do girls wanna pierce their nose,
And walk around in torn pantyhose, oh yeah

I like the kids who say they listen to the punk rock
I like the kids who fight against how they were brought up,
They hate the trends and think it's fucked to care,
It's cool when this piss people off with what they wear, oh yeah

So give me one good reason,
Why we need to be like them
Kids will have fun and offend,
They don't want and don't fit in

Hate the jocks and preps, the hippie fuckin' scum bags
Heavy metalers with their awful pussy hair bands
Counting seconds until we can get our way,
Ditching school almost every single day, oh yeah

So give me one good reason,
Why we need to be like them
Kids will have fun and offend,
They don't want to and don't fit in

So give me one good reason,
Why we need to be like them
Kids will have fun and offend,
They don't want to and don't fit in
