The Lyrics

Yeah this is along the same lines as my Good Charlotte parody, wanna fight about it?
Do your girlfriend and you just break up?
Did it leave you broken on the floor?
Like somehow she ripped out your heart,
Well no one understands me,

Did you ever sit in your room?
Or have an argument with your folks?
With your music turned up rather loud,
And you have to turn it down,

No you don't know puberty,
Or to ever have acne,
You don't know what it's like to be like me

To be young,
To be sad,
To write poems and get mad,
To be kicked,
In the crotch,
While all your best friends sit and watch,
To be on the edge of seventeen,
And dealing with your high school,
No you don't know what it's like,
You don't know my life,

Are you envious of someone else?
Because they can get all the girls,
Are you desperate to get laid sometime?
Before grade ten is over?

Is there someone that you really hate?
For one reason or another,
With her big fake boobs and stupid smile,
While deep inside you want her,

No you don't know puberty,
Or to ever have acne,
You don't know what it's like to be like me

To be young,
To be sad,
To write poems and get mad,
To be kicked,
In the crotch,
While all your best friends sit and watch,
To be on the edge of seventeen,
And dealing with your high school,
No you don't know what it's like,
You don't know my life,

No one ever got zits on their face,
And no one has ever, ever failed a class,
No one has acted happy,
When they're sad on the inside,

Nobody's ever lost something they wanted,
Or ever had to work at a job they hate,
They don't know what it's like,
What it's like!

To be young,
To be sad,
To write poems and get mad,
To be kicked,
In the crotch,
While all your best friends sit and watch,
To be on the edge of seventeen,
And dealing with your high school,
No you don't know what it's like (what it's like),

To be young,
To be sad,
To write poems and get mad,
To be kicked,
In the crotch,
While all your best friends sit and watch,
To be on the edge of seventeen,
And dealing with your high school,
No you don't know what it's like,
You don't know my life,
You don't know my life,
So buy our CD.

I think this was better than a lot of songs that get good ratings here... i like all 3 of your songs today even though i don't know "the young and the hopeless well" keep writing

Is this supposed to be a parody about Simple Plan. I mean, i'm glad if it is because I don't like SP or Good Charlotte...

I second Alana... I can't stand this pseudo-punk shi*, and this was a good satire of such an annoying band.
