The Lyrics

Back when they were in fashion, I had a rolling backpack... As soon as I got to junior high though, people started to kick it! This made me mad, but at least it inspired a (Good?) parody.
New backpack!
It's not on my back
Rolls on the ground
I drag it all around

When you get a new backpack
They will kick it
If you ever try to drag
They will kick it
And if good looks it lacks
It will be kicked

New backpack
That you roll
Not on back
On floor
When you do
They will kick
And your stuff will be,
It will be hit
They kick it
Kick it good

When your backpack's on the ground
They will kick it
When you roll it all around
They will kick it
If it's concrete bound
They will kick it

I say wear it
On your back!
Not to kick it
Wear your pack!

New backpack!
It's not on my back
Rolls on the ground
I drag it all around

When you get a new backpack
They will kick it
If you ever try to drag
They will kick it
And if good looks it lacks
It will be kicked

New backpack
That you roll
Not on back
On floor
When you do
They will kick
And your stuff will be,
It will be hit
They kick it
New backpack
That you roll
Not on back
On floor
When you do
They will kick
And your stuff will be,
It will be hit
They kick it
Kick it good

555, luckily I've heard this song many times. Easy to remember the pacing to. Very cute! =) I noticed different links and ads pertaining to my parodies as well(anything anime or Nirvana related, usually).
