    Oscar Myer weiner
    Nasty fascist schemer
    Another verbal offense
    Another misdemeanor

    Teasing in the playground the centre of attention
    Throwing punches gather 'round it's after school detention
    Sit up straight and pay attention
    Sitting in the classroom waiting for the bell
    Will there be another fight who can really tell yeah
    Throw paper planes drive teacher insane

    Running for the school bus and look who's already there
    There's not a teacher in sight and everyone's all there yeah
    I will not run and I will not hide
    This is a matter of my pride
    So I raise my fist and throw a punch yeah
    Connecting with a bonejarring crunch

    Sticks and stones will break my bones
    But your names will never hurt me
    (Repeat) x 2
