Well I love the sound when I smash the glass,
My mommy is worried about the way I drink,
I slam the door, say, "shut up you jerk!"
If I get caught they're gonna kick my ass.
My daddy can't figure out the way I think.
I can't wait till the show tonite,
CHORUS: They're telling me, but I'm telling them,
"When the sun goes down I'm ready to play,
"I'll do it my way, & I'll always win."
They wake me up, tell me, "to get to work,"
Well I love the sound when I smash the glass,
If I get caught they're gonna kick my ass.
It doesn't matter what anybody says!!!"
My girl stands very close to me,
That's just where I want her to be.
They say it costs $6 to get in this shack,
I hope the police won't show up here,
I'll go around & sneak in the back.
REPEAT CHORUS Then we'll have to hide out of fear...
