I’m on fire and now I think I’m ready to bust a move
Check it out I’m rockin' steady, go!

Betty won’t stop listening to modern rock, how she hates to be alone
I try to compensate her lack of love with coffee cake, ice cream
And a bottle of ten dollar wine she says hey

I rock the Haro sport
I rock the cowgirl blues
I rock too fast for love I’m footloose in my Velcro shoes
What’s up with Will and Grace?
I don’t get drum and bass
The future freaks me out

I’m on fire and now I think I'm ready to bust a move
Check it out I’m rockin' steady
To the beat in my head
It goes oh, oh, oh
I know that she’s the only one
I’d rather waste our time together, yeah, ‘cause we can get down

Betty can’t quit carvin' question marks in my wrist
How come we’re so alone?

We waste away the days with nicotine and television samples of an era we hate
To admit we embrace
We fail to represent
We fail to be content
We fail at everything we ever even try to attempt
And so the story goes as only Betty knows
It’s time we take control
Get down

I’m on fire and now I think I'm ready to bust a move
Check it out I’m rockin' steady
To the beat in my head
It goes oh, oh, oh
I know that she’s the only one
I’d rather waste my time with her

Betty, I need you
I miss you
I’m so alone without you
To call up on the weekends with my cellular phone

Betty it’s so hard to relate (Betty, I need you)
To the whole human race (I miss you)
I don’t know where to begin (I'm so alone without you)
I don’t know where to begin (oh Betty)
If we can both find a way (I need you)
To do the things that we say (I miss you)
We might not sit in our rooms (I'm so alone)
And drink our daydreams away (oh Betty)

Betty, I’m a dreamer (I need you)
I’m not a vicious schemer (I miss you)
Oh Betty won’t you...
Ah fuck it

I’m on fire and now I think I'm ready to bust a move
Check it out I’m rockin' steady
To the beat in my head
It goes oh, oh, oh
I know that she’s the only one
I’d rather waste our time together, yeah, ‘cause we can get down
