Rockin The Suburbs Submit Correct Lyrics

Let me tell y'all what it's like
Being male, middle class and white
It's a bitch, if you don't believe
Listen up to my new CD, sham on

I got shit running through my brain
So intense that I can't explain
All alone in my white boy pain
Shake your booty while the band complains

I'm rockin' the suburbs
Just like Michael Jackson did
I'm rockin' the suburbs
Except that he was talented

I'm rockin' the suburbs
I take the checks and face the facts
That some producer with computers
Mixes all my shitty tracks

I'm pissed off but I'm too polite
When people break in the McDonalds line
Mom and dad you made me so uptight
Gonna cuss on the mic tonight

I don't know how much I can take
Girl, give me somethin' I can break

I'm rockin' the suburbs
Just like Quiet Riot did
I'm rockin' the suburbs
Except that they were talented

I'm rockin' the suburbs
I take the checks and face the facts
That some producer with computers
Mixes all my shitty tracks

In a haze these days
I pull up to the stoplight
I can feel that something's not right
I can feel that someone's blasting me

With hate and bass
Sending dirty vibes my way
'Cause my great great great great granddad
Made someone's great great great great granddaddy slaves

It wasn't my idea, it wasn't my idea, it never was my idea
I just drove to the store for some Preparation H

Y'all don't know what it's like
Being male, middle class and white
Y'all don't know what it's like
Being male, middle class and white

Y'all don't know what it's like
Being male, middle class and white
Y'all don't know what it's like
Being male, middle class and white

It gets me real pissed off and it makes me wanna say
It gets me real pissed off and it makes me wanna say
It gets me real pissed off and it makes me wanna say
It gets me real pissed off and it makes me wanna say, fuck!

Just like Jon Bon Jovi did
I'm rockin' the suburbs
Except that he was talented
I'm rockin' the suburbs

I take the checks and face the facts
That some producer with computers
Mixes all my shitty tracks these days
Yeah, yeah, I'm rockin' the suburbs
Yeah, yeah, I'm rockin' the suburbs, yeah, yeah

You'd better look out because I'm gonna say fuck!
You'd better look out because I'm gonna say fuck!
You'd better look out because I'm gonna say fuck!
You'd better look out because I'm gonna say fuck!
