Suburbia

Lyrics:

I’m dancing naked on my street, in my neighborhood
And I just lost my job last week and I’m not feeling good
I think I’ll go to Hiram’s Guns and Liquor just for fun
And pick me up some whiskey and a shiny new black gun
Go down the road to K-Mart for the blue light special hour
And put the barrel to my head, it gives me special power
In Suburbia

My wife don’t understand me, well she thinks that I’m a louse
She don’t understand that there’s a mortgage in this house
Her mother won’t quit nagging, well she thinks that I’m a slave
I’d like to put a knife in her and send her to the grave
In Suburbia

Mommy, daddy, they can’t help me anymore
Cousins, uncles, well they shove me out the door
Nobody can stop a man if he’s got blinders on
Don’t take away the spotlight on this special hour of fun
In Suburbia

In Suburbia the kids are always screaming half the night
The way they never go to sleep they must be smoking ice
In the morning when you wake up your car stereo’s been nicked
It’s the yuppie couple’s kid next door, he’s such a little prick
They say child abuse is bad, in this case I’d say it’s legal
I’d like to chain him to his room and set fire to his beagle
In Suburbia

Mommy, daddy, they can’t help me anymore
Cousins, uncles, well they shove me out the door
Nobody can stop a man if he’s got blinders on
Don’t take away the spotlight on this special hour of fun
In Suburbia

Joe Wilson down the road is fucking Henry Meuller’s wife
And now he wants my daughter, I wish they’d stay out of my life
My son just got arrested, he’s got pot leaves on his door
His favorite band’s the Rugburns and he wants a fucking war
In Suburbia

Mommy, daddy, they can’t help me anymore
Cousins, uncles, well they shove me out the door
Nobody can stop a man if he’s got blinders on
Don’t take away the spotlight on this special hour of fun
In Suburbia

I’m dancing naked on my street, in my neighborhood
And I just lost my job last week and I’m not feeling good
I think I’ll go to Hiram’s Guns and Liquor just for fun
And pick me up some whiskey and a shiny new black gun
Go down the road to K-Mart for the blue light special hour
And put the barrel to my head, it gives me special power
In Suburbia
