The Lyrics

It's like you've got a death wish man
Stop drinking that paint, oh
La da da da da da La, Da Daaa,
La da da da, La da da da, La da da daaa

You want to set yourself on fire, but don't even try
A pathological desire, so don't even try
You'll end up in the burn ward, and then you'll cry
So don't even try
No don't even try
No don't even try

(La da da da da da da da da)

You want to jump the train, but don't even try
To ride from here all the way to Fort Wayne, but don't even try
You'll rip your [censored]ing leg off, and maybe die
So don't even try
No don't even try
No don't even try

(La da da da da da da da da)

You want to watch the solar eclipse, but don't even try
You've grabbed the popcorn and chips, but don't even try
You look directly at it and you'll go blind (yeah man)
So don't even try
No don't even try
No don't even try

(La da da da da da da da da)

You like that Chubby Bunny game, but don't even try
That craze is dangerous and lame, so don't even try
You'll wind up in the morgue if it goes awry
So don't even try
No don't even try
No don't even try

(La da da da da da da da da)

You want to try chasing that bug*, but don't even try
By doing more than kiss and hug, but don't even try
AIDS is nothing funny, you should know why
So don't even try
No don't even try
No don't even try

(La da da da da da da da da)

When it's minus seventeen degrees, don't even try
To lick a flagpole or you'll freeze, no don't even try
But still you want to do it, I don't know why
But don't even try
But don't even try
No don't even try

(La da da da da da da da da)

You're thinking of going to fight, but don't even try
In the ranks of the Caliph's knights, but don't even try
If you go join ISIS you'll surely die
So don't even try
No don't even try
No don't even try
*Bugchasing, or deliberately trying to contract HIV, is sadly a real thing.
