The Lyrics

one-hit wonder
parody of 'teenage dirtbag' (some.. person in wheatus? i don't know)
new lyrics by nuero, 2-24-03
their name is wheatus
they wrote a song like weezer
about a girl
it's something that's been done before
oh, they were cool
back when we were in school
back two or three years ago
but now no one cares if they stay or go

'cause they're just a one-hit wonder, baby
yeah, they're just a one-hit wonder, baby
listen to chumbawumba, baby, with me

they're supposed to be cool
too bad it's not 2000
you see, i'm no fool
there's been one-hit wonders before
and now i can see
what rocks and what's pee
their popularity's low
and nobody cares if they stay or go

'cause they're just a one-hit wonder, baby
yeah, they're just a one-hit wonder, baby
listen to chumbawumba, baby, with me
or somethin' else like b*witched

i feel like crap
'cause i bought their cd and, well
it's a piece of crap
only two or three good songs
oh, how it sucks
wasted my fifteen bucks
i guess i'll try to sell
or maybe i'll trade with a school fella

"i've got two tickets to chumbawumba, maybe
you'd like to trade for that there cd
tell me you want it, yeah, don't say maybe, oh please"

'cause they're just a one-hit wonder, baby
yeah, they're just a one-hit wonder, baby
listen to chumbawumba, baby, with me
or somethin' else like b*witched

I really like the opening, "their name is wheatus / they wrote a song like weezer." I actually knew someone who got them confused! "Yeah, I like Weezer, especially their 'Teenage Dirt Bag," song. Ha ha. Ciao, Klaire

I like Chumbawumba.

As much as I like that song, I have to admit that this parody was well done. And yes, as reluctant as I am to believe this, they are most surely becoming one hit wonders. The parody was very good though, the rhyming of one hit wonder with Chumbawumba was very well done. I really like this one, its much better than your LP ones. And yes, it does deserve a higher rating than it has gotten thus far.
