They say
I need some Rogaine
To put in my hair
Work it out at the gym
To fit my underwear
Oakley makes the shades
That transform a tool
You'd hate
For the kids to think
That you lost your cool

I'mma do the things
That I wanna do
I ain't got a thing
To prove to you
I'll eat my candy
With the pork and beans
Excuse my manners
If I make a scene
I ain't gonna wear
The clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy
With the me inside
One look in the mirror
And I'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot
About what you think

Everyone likes to dance
To a happy song
(Hey, hey)
With a catchy chorus and beat
So they can sing along
(Hey, hey)
Timbaland knows the way
To reach the top of the charts
Maybe if I work with him
I can perfect the art

I'mma do the things
That I wanna do
I ain't got a thing
To prove to you
I'll eat my candy
With the pork and beans
Excuse my manners
If I make a scene
I ain't gonna wear
The clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy
With the me inside
One look in the mirror
And I'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot
About what you think

No I don't care
I don't care

I'mma do the things
That I wanna do
I ain't got a thing
To prove to you
I'll eat my candy
With the pork and beans
Excuse my manners
If I make a scene
I ain't gonna wear
The clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy
With the me inside
One look in the mirror
And I'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot
About what you think

    It's about not caring about what other people think about you; Doing what you want no matter what anyone else thinks.
    And I have to agree with what some are saying;;; poeple say this is how they are so that people don't see through those horrid masks to their insecurites.
    THERE'S MEDICATION FOR THIS. x] [[trust me, I know. I'm taking them.]]

    Love this song. :3

    And Weezzer. :3

    i love weezer. One of my favorite bands ever.

    I think that this song is in reference to themselves as a band. They haven't changed over the years. Their style of music is unique. They are not going to change who they are or clone the music that is at the top of the charts. When they realized what they had done, they take pride in themselves. They trully don't care what anyone else thinks. Its been this long and they're still not going to jump on the band wagon.

    i think it means... brand names and popularity aren't his driving force in life. i don't think it's a rebeling against the P's song but rather a tribute to being an individual and not a Hollister wearing clone.

    imjoeyokay, that is the stupidest argument I've ever heard, because its so absolutely circular that it will never hold up. See, if as you say, not conforming is conforming, then in order to not conform one must conform. Either way there's conformity going on.

    This brings us to "you are not unique". The definition of unique is "being the only one" (Merriam-Webster). So, by definition, we are in fact unique, even you, imjoeyokay, are "distinctively characteristic" (Merriam-Webster).

    So, if everyone is unique, and everyone conforms, then it becomes apparent that conformity and uniqueness are in no way related, and that you are an imbecile for assuming that they are essentially the same quality.
