so it was jeremy in 1983
in his ocean pacific t
who got a bloody knee
on his skateboard
in the half pipe
in the backyard
that tuesday night

and i'm only gonna pierce my left ear
and i've been working on this mustache all summer long
and my favorite band will always be tears for fears
and i'm gonna wear a pink tux to the prom

cutting class through the first floor window
he's driving fast cause he never did a thing slow
and i look up to my big bro
cause in the 80's all the ladies grabbed his hand and couldn't let go

and i'm only gonna pierce my left ear
and i've been working on this mustache all summer long
and my favorite band will always be tears for fears
and i'm gonna wear a pink tux to the prom (a pink tux to the prom)

doo doo, a doo doo doo
pink tux to the prom
doo doo, a doo doo doo
pink tux to the prom

i am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom
live without a care...what could possibly go wrong?

when you're president of the breakfast club
and you're not hesitant to fall in love (to fall in love)
to throw it away to fall in love with the 80's

i am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom
live without a care...what could possibly go wrong?
i am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom
live without a care...
cause you threw it away to fall in love with the 80's

doo doo, a doo doo
doo doo, a doo doo
doo doo, a doo doo

    ok it means that adults cant adapt to the new age becouse everyone knows that pink tux is no good now. live with out a care is the chiled in the adult speaking or it is talking to the geeks becouse thay threw ther life out to get in the 80 the better time for then to adapt to or somthing like that
