The Lyrics

Off to make discoveries, laws be damned!
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

I love to dig some pits in random-ass places, uh
To see if I can discover civilisations, uh
That nobody's ever heard of, even if they're geeks
So I'm inside your backyard without permission? Please
Could find old keys (oh-oh) here, so let me be (do-do-oh yeah)

Damn, I love history
And there's nobody who would dare stop me, oh yeah
I will find answers, see
So with the pepper spray, won't you cease? Oh yeah
Work is goin' on here, man
Find out all kinds of crap
Could you get off my back
With all that "get out" crap? Yeah

I'll find the remnants of an indigenous tribe, uh
"With that one shovel?" Yes, it's all that I could find, uh
One wrong move, I could break my findings, that I know, uh
Payin' for quality equipment? That's a no
Because my niece's toy spade was free

I will make history
By findin' dino bones down here, trust me, oh yeah
Find proof that Ancient Greece
Sent troops all around the world, you'll see, oh yeah
Ev'ryone will give me cash
Because I found a stash
Of really ancient crap
In your yard, that's a fact, yeah

I hope that I find somethin', so sick of gettin' nothin'
Been in ten yards today and all I've found is junk
Can deal with the abuse of any kind from you
But it's not fair that empty air's all I can show
Why are you rude to me, crude to me? Yeah
Just want to follow dreams, my one dream, yeah
You've been so rude to me, crude to me, yeah (rude to me)
Just let me follow dreams, my real dream, yeah (crude to me)

Thought you'd like history
Cause you look like you're as old as can be, oh yeah
That may seem rude of me (come on, dude)
But you're the one throwin' bricks at me, oh yeah
Jerk: that's what you are now, man (oh-oh-oh-oh)
You're bein' such an ass (oh-oh-oh-oh)
I could sue you now, man (oh-oh-oh-oh)
For givin' me such crap (yeah, oh, c'mon)
Let me dig around here, man (round here, man)
Swear I'll find such a stash (a real huge stash)
Of super ancient crap (really old crap)
That you'll want to unstab (want to unstab)
All that I have done here, man (oh-oh-oh-oh)
Was dig a hole, it's sad (yeah)
That you'd get violent, man (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Cause of a hole, so sad (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, yeah)
Nobody else tried to stab (no-one else stabbed)
Me cause I did this, man (what's got you mad?)
Why are you so damn mad (I don't get it, man)
Just cause I broke in, man (you're in the wrong, man)?

This is the happiest song called "Misery" I've ever heard. And I've heard three of 'em!
