I want my money back
say it like you mean it
I want my money back
I'm gonna rock your world

(chorus - hey - hu - hey)

It's all or nothing
And nothing's all I ever get
Everytime I turn it on
I burn it up and burn it out

It's always something
There's always something going wrong
That's the only guarantee
That's what this is all about

It's a never ending attack (ha)
Everything's a lie and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

And all the morons
And all the stooges with their coins
They're the ones who make the rules
It's not a game it's just a rout

There's desparation (there's desperation)
There's desparation in the air
It leaves a stain on all your clothes
And no detergent gets it out

And we're always slipping thru the cracks (slipping)
Then the movie's over fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money...

I want my money back
(life is a lemon) what
(life is a lemon) what about it
I want my money back
(life is a lemon)

What about love?
It's Defective!
It's always breaking in half

What about sex?
It's Defective!
It's never built to really last

What about family?
It's Defective!
All the batteries are shot

What about friends?
They're Defective!
All the parts are out of stock

What about hope?
It's Defective!
It's corroded and decayed

Waht about faith?
It's Defective!
It's tattered and it's frayed

What about your Gods?
They're Defective!
They forgot the warranty

What about your town?
It's Defective!
It's a dead end street to me

What about your school?
It's Defective!
It's a pack of useless lies

What about your work?
It's Defective!
It's a crock and then you die

What about your childhood?
It's Defective!
It's dead and buried in the past

What about your future?
It's Defective!
you can shove it up your ass!!!

It's all or nothing
And nothing's all I ever get
Everytime I turn it on
I burn it up and burn it out

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money...

life is a lemon and I want my money back
life is a lemon and I want my money back
life is a lemon and I want my money back
life is a lemon (and I want) and I want (and I want) and I want my money back

life is a lemon and I want my money back
life is a lemon and I want my money back
life is a lemon and I want my money back
life is a lemon
and I want
and I want
and I want
and I want my money back!
