about

You could probably tell this, but I used to be pretty punk rock. But, there comes a time in a young man's life when he has to decide if he wants to stay hardcore or if he doesn't want to wash dishes anymore. I chose the latter.

lyrics

Well your punk rock friends are broke
and they sure enjoy their cigarettes
they wouldn't say no if you were to
buy them some cigarette

Well your punk rock friends are broke
and they finally quit their fascist jobs
they wonder if it'd be cool if they could
crash at your place


But they assure you that it won't be longer than 2... or 3
months
and they wonder when it was that you sold out
you used to be punk

and how your nothing more than a fat corporate pig
and they won't shut up about going off-the-grid

Well your punk rock friends are broke
and they've got punk rock wishes
but right now they gotta buy PBR and
wash punk rock dishes

Well your punk rock friends are broke
they're a little pissed off, I reckon
they're gonna slam your door
and use your stereo... to blast 7 seconds.

And your punk rock friends grew rat tails and jumped locomotives
and your punk rock friends got bandanas and questionable movites
they got clothes that're black, and khaki and olive drab

and besides that ratty dog (on a rope)
everything they own (including dope)
can fit inside an army surplus bag

Well your punk rock friends are broke
and they think your show is weak
But they wouldn't mind if you could get in to the show for free
