Eraserheads – Shake Your Head lyrics

1st verse:
I was born upside down
I felt my grandma put my feet on the ground
They put a spoon in my mouth
And everyone was shocked to hear me shout

1st bridge:
Well I knew I couldn't take
All that dog food that they make
And just as soon as pull myself
On a stake and burn
I saw it coming around x3
And so I just yeah,
Shook my head and walk away

2nd verse:
I grew up in a town
Where everybody's trying to push me around
The girls are all right, but the guys are tough
They're always bugging me with macho stuffs

2nd bridge:
Well I ain't no super fighter
I go for flower power
I've been running every race
Just to save my face
I saw it coming around x3
And so I just yeah,
Shook my head and walk away

3rd verse:
Well, they try to see if you care
It's just a matter of not begging for more
You know it's really suicidal to just give in
With people you can never really be sure

Oh, when I get down to this
They'll eat you up
When the words get in your head
They'll stitch you up
It's a saving grace to have enough
When you find yourself in a compromising spot

3rd bridge:
You should know, you shouldn't take
All that dog food that they make
You'd just as soon as put yourself on a stake and burn
You see it comin' around
You see it comin', comin' around
And when you see it comin' around
You just, yeah, Shake yer head and walk away
