Weezer – Pork And Beans lyrics

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

    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.

    Umm hey uh people who are reading this you should no the meaning if your reading the lyrics. It means to be original like weezer to be orginal hes eating candy and pork n beans to gether he likes it and its showing his orginality and hes just talking about how every one has got caught up in the new time zone and there not thinking about what makes them happy and what makes them. Its a sad world we all have fallin into, if you liston he says I'm not gonna wear the clothes that you like, all bc he is orginal and hes gonna show off his orginality. Can't any one see that? Can't any one see that every one has lost there selfs.?! Girls acting stupid just so guys think there easy, people acting like there somthing there not. Just chill man when your listion to a song it speaks to you. Theres a meaning behinde every song you just have to look between the lines
    peacee out ♥♥.

    Right. This song is about not giving damn about what other people think. It's promoting for you to be who you are. There's a comment saying that we're not unique because we all try to be.
    Ugh, excuse me. Take a look at the teenagers in todays society. No idea what the hell it's like in other countries, but being a teenager myself in Britain, I can say that the majority of my generation are molded from each other. I, as far as I know, am the only girl who tries to be individual. Therefore, that makes me different, because I don't listen to music like Justin Bieber, or whatever is in the charts, that automatically makes me different.
    As for the meaning of this song, yeah, it's about being who you want and not giving a damn. He's saying he won't conform or compromise, which I agree with. We shouldn't have to do either to fit in with society.

    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.

    It's talking about he doesn't care what anyone, the media or a person, thinks about him. He's gonna do what he wants to do, dang it! He's finally happy with who he is ("I'm finally dandy with the me inside"), and he's just going to enjoy his life. If you don't like him eating candy with pork and beans, s***w you!
    Also, the music video for this song is just hilarious.

    I can never get this song out of my head. It teaches me the meaning of life - I must just let the world think whatever it wants, but not to care. I wish my brain could grasp that sooner. In the video, there is a funny little hamster, and I think it is so cute. With all that has happened, this song relaxes my mind, and never leaves, even when I'm meant to be listening to the teacher: P

    I think it's speaking to all "cliques". You got the jocks and followers(hollister wearers). You got some thugs who are followers but just come off as wannabees. Emos and goth. All a clone of one type or another. Me? When I pull out my clothes for work under the light of my cell fone, I surprise myself when dressing in the dark only to find out my clothes are totaly mismatched. I would say I'm in the dork crowd but man why do so many people lives have to revolve around their web page? Ever hear the attention needing insect who says out loud in a crowd "did you read my blog?" stop free advertizing on your bodies kids!

    Djtracid, good post, but if you want to comment on another's spelling, worry about your own too. It's "cliche", not "cleche", and if I could type the accent on the "e", I'd do that too. I'm not picking on you, but thought it was funny that your first comment was on someone else's spelling and you bombed one out yourself, lol! While I am pointing this out, "master of the obvious", I am just kidding too.

    This song is basically telling you to be yourself and who cares what everyone else thinks. Be yourself. Man. Have we conformed so long that even the meaning of "originality" has escaped us?
    Folks, just be yourself, and your true friends and loved ones will accept you. And if they don't. Well. "Don't give a hoot". Don't be a poser! You deserve to at least be true to yourself!
    Peace!

    Us teens are held up to so high expectations and we don't have a say about it. Pareants expect us to behave and listen like we did when we were youner. But, we're older now and we need some freedom and when we aren't givin it sooner or later we will rebel or have a break-down. So we don't care what you adults think and we don't have a thing to prove to you but, only to ourselves.

    This is definetally stating the fact that everyone is afraid of their own shadow and sometimes you just have to have to forget that people judge you and you have to do your thing, at the beginning hes referring how people tell you to do things and how you don't want people to think you've changed, but in the chorus the perspective changes saying don't listen to those people be your self.

    Well, I think it's definitely a s*w you to the record label. Weezer not commercially viable! What a joke! The boys are getting older and generally in music there is pressure to do and say certain things if you're going to compete (hence the Timbaland jibe) but what this song says to me is do they, will they ever need to, to sell an album? I don't think so. Long live Weezer, just the way they are.

    This song is basically "shut up i am who i am and i dont give a shit what the hell you think about it cause i enjoy being me" to be honest whoever the hell that suicide guy is he definatly doesn't understand. What I'm saying is there is generic tendencies in everyone. But some people like myself and many other enjoy doing what we like for a change rather than listening to the status quo.

    Keep7on7truckin7mann, master of the obvious. It would really help if you could spell.
    Not everyone has "lost there selfs..." or even "lost themselves..." The song doesn't even say that - it is saying that they are not concerned with what is popular, they do what they want - however I do not see them making judgements on other people. While I love the song, it's very cleche to talk about how original you are - as we used to say, "I'm unique and original... Just like everyone else..." lol! Everyone is so concerned with being "original" and not being a "copycat." It kind of gets old, don't ya think? Maybe I will wear the clothes that you like - if I like them too ;)
