  • What the hell is wrong with me?
    I'm in a band, ladies can't you see
    Please don't judge me by the car that I drive
    Or the fact that I haven't had a date since '95

    Come on, don't go away
    Don't listen to your friends when they that I am gay
    I try so hard but I just can't get no play
    Don't have any STDs
    Come on, I'm begging on my knees
    Come on get close just ignore the fleas

    We will take anything that walks . .
    Because we're desperate

    I know I'm not a handsome man
    Cuz I look like an ogre with a farmer's tan
    And every time the ladies see me and I'm walking their way
    They say, "Brian smells, everybody stay away"

    Oh ladies, can't you see
    I can't help it because I'm ugly
    But I'm in a band, don't that count for something
    Come on now, don't delay
    Cuz if you don't call then I'll probably rent-a-date
    And my tab keeps rising, cuz I do it every day
    Oh ladies, can't you see
    I'm in a band, why aren't you attracted to me?
    I don't care if you're underage
    Just as long as you'll be seen with me in a public place
    What's it gonna take? (What's it gonna take?)
    For you help me bake cookies?
    Cuz I need to know
    I'm all hot and ready
    And I got to go . .
    Because we're Desperate

    Why oh why must I have this rash
    No girls talk to me they just step back
    Should I lift weights? Would that make me more sexual?
    Maybe wear glasses would that make me intellectual?
    Come on lets do it fast
    Cuz I'm all hot and ready and it just won't last
    And I got 20 dollars what can I get for that?
