  • This here's a tale about conditions of the head
    At one time I wanted to expand my education but
    Now I'll make more money if I dye my hair instead.

    'Cause I've gotta be more punk, and forget about writing love songs
    And even though I'm a middle class white Canadian
    God knows I've been done wrong
    'Cause I'm a fake punk! I'm a fake punk!
    I'll even use a dirty word, I'll even write a mean song,
    I'll even take a mean picture
    'Cause I've got the hair for it!

    I've always tried to dig myself out of the sewer
    I've always strived to be a little bit more well-read
    But oh no! Here comes that rock press interviewer so,
    I'll just look real tough and say fuck a lot instead

    I'd be alright if I could just hang out with my girlfriend
    I'd be just fine if they would close down all the bars
    And maybe one day I'll join a protest against smoking
    But when it comes to sincere angst you can just
    Leave me the fuck alone!
