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,
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 desperation,
there's desperation 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
Then the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back
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 your family?
It's defective - all the batteries are shot
What about your friends?
They're defective - all the parts are out of stock
What about hope?
It's defective - it's corroded and decayed
What 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 - and you can shove it up your ass!
I want my money back - life is a lemon
I want my money back - life is a lemon, life is a lemon
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 back
And we're always slipping thru the cracks
Then the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back
Back, back, back, back!
I want my money back,
I want my money back - life is a lemon
