Make Babies 03:28
Now come and help me decide Its been burning me up inside Going to be hard to justify Shall we have babies or get high You'll end up twice the smile Everything's more worthwhile Life is twice as nice But everything's twice the price Let's go party just you and I We can leave those drips behind Live the teenage dream and fly For what meaning in your life? Now there's is no need to fight There is no wrong or right So responsibility? Or throw it away and party I'll keep on dancing The clock's ticking I'll keep on dancing The clock's ticking I'll keep on dancing The clock's ticking There must be more to life than this Than fall in love, the first kiss Impregnate and procreate, And finally it starts all over again Let's go let's dance til dawn I need to feel young and reborn Let's forget about this til morn And when are you coming home? I've not finished having fun Can I propagate when I'm done? Soon you'll be firing blanks You're no longer twenty one Come on I still have life Even when she became my wife I'm doing what I can She should find another man Let's go and get some shots I know all the great great spots Come meet my friends be free Yes be free and diseased I'll keep on dancing The clock's ticking I'll keep on dancing The clock's ticking I'll keep on dancing The clock's ticking There must be more to life than this Than fall in love, the first kiss Procreate and impregnate And finally it starts all over again Got to keep it together Just keep it together Make babies Get high

Hey little boy there standing by yourself, can you still cry through your tiny eyes? Just leave me alone Leave me alone Hey fat boy with your big belly does it hurt when I push you down to the ground Just leave me alone Leave me alone When I'll grow up I'll become a man Will I leave behind all the things that make me who I am If I lose my faith, and lose my tongue And erase all the places that I feel apart from And now Why should I look like everybody else? Why should I talk like everybody else? Why should I dress like everybody else? Now don't give in Just stand up tall Don't let them win Hey boy, don't you know that this is our road. This is not your road JUST GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM Just leave me alone Leave me alone Hey little boy do you know kung fu? Just like all the rest of you people do Just leave me alone Leave me alone When I'll grow up I'll become a man Will I leave behind all the things that make me who I am If I lose my faith, and lose my tongue And erase all the places that I feel apart from And now Why should I look like everybody else? Why should I talk like everybody else? Why should I dress like everybody else? Now don't give in Just stand up tall Don't let them win Why should I look like everybody else? Why should I talk like everybody else? Why should I dress like everybody else? Now don't give in Just stand up tall Don't let them win Why should I look like everybody else? You should look like everybody else! Why should I talk like everybody else? You should talk like everybody else! Why should I dress like everybody else? You should dress like everybody else! Now don't give in Just stand up tall Don't let them win Why should I sing like everybody else? You should sing like everybody else! Why should I live like everyone else? You should live like everybody else! Why should I love like everybody else? You should love everybody else! Now don't give in Just stand up tall Don't let them win

There is no shame in acting nineteen There is no shame in composing dreams Is it alright? Yes it's alright! Just growing up and settle down Work 9 to 5 in greys and browns Is it alright? Yes it's alright! Live your life in front of a screen? Stand-up be seen instead of unseen Is it alright? Yes it's alright! Should I carry my baggage around? Round my neck like a ten ton pound I just want to Get it off your chest Get it off your chest Get it off your chest Get it off your chest I'm gonna dance like a duck thief Sing like a duck thief Jump like a duck thief Play like a duck thief Play guitar like a drama Queen? Can I pose in a magazine? Is it alright? Yes it's alright! Can I dress like how I want to? Can I be honest with me and you? Is it alright? Yes it's alright! Can I live life openly? With no fear sneers but freely Is it alright? Yes it's alright! Should I carry my baggage around? Round my neck like ten a ton pound I just want to Get it off your chest Get it off your chest Get it off your chest Get it off your chest I'm gonna dance like a duck thief Sing like a duck thief Jump like a duck thief Play like a duck thief What shall I do with my life? What shall I do with my life? I'm gonna dance like a duck thief Sing like a duck thief Jump like a duck thief Play like a duck thief Make it like a duck thief Look Like a duck thief Fail like a duck thief Flap like a duck thief

You'll never stand on your two feet Never break the mould A life of mediocrity Forget your hopes and industry Forget your big ideas It's just sociology So I'm a fool, need to listen to you And you're so great So Arsène Lupin would never approve of me And you're so great What are these words that you want me to say? Du fric, du blé, des balles, de l'oseille du pognon, les banlieues en Argenteuil I'm going to be a millionaire Just one of these days No matter what you say I’m going to make it some day Come take my hand, you must understand That your dreams are all but just dreams Come take my hand, I'll show you the land Of what reality means You'll never make it on your own No! You're wrong You'll never make it on your own No! You're wrong So queue up and get back in line We're going to take back control We're going to control radio Don't ever attempt original It's just not in your genes It's just zoological So sir you are better than them And you're so great You have black friends. You have white friends And you're so great So you might wear a safety pin Stay in and read the guardian Click your way to revolution But you're the problem not the solution Come take my hand, I'll show you the land Of what reality means You'll never make it on your own No! You're wrong You'll never make it on your own No! You're wrong I'm stronger than you! Hell no! I'm better than you! Hell no! I'm faster than you! Hell no! I'm better looking than you! Hell no! Come and ride with us! I say no! And just believe in us! I just said No! We’ll make it on our own! No! No you're wrong! We’ll make it on our own! No! No you're wrong! We’ll make it on our own! No! No you're wrong! We’ll make it on our own! No! No you're wrong! We’ll make it on our own!
