The Lyrics

Being on a college campus, I surprisingly see many girls wearing ties and all trying to imitate Avril Lavigne...theyre all Avril wannabes....I once asked one of my co-workers if her wearing of a tie was because of Avril Lavigne, and she told me that she is so mad that people are copying Avril Lavigne and that she had been wearing a tie since before Avril was even around.....ok, so she may be an Annie Hall wannabe, but there are still many many Avril wannabes around me.......oh, btw.....there are 3 quotes from Avrils songs in here because in Living Colour's song they use 3 famous quotes as well...
"Why do you have to go and make things so complicated, I see the way you're acting like somebody else gets me frustrated"

Looking at their ties, what do I see?
A bunch of Avril Wannabes
They have false anger, they have pipe dreams
They are very misinformed young teens
They're a bunch of Avril wannabes
Hate Debbie Gibson and Tiffany
They're a bunch of Avril wannabes
Bunch of Avril wannabes
Bunch of Avril wannabes

Guitar riffs, a Grammy nod
On TRL, she becomes the star
"Want you all to follow me
instead of that slut Britney"

They buy the clothes, it's her they'll be
See her smiling face on MTV
They're a bunch of Avril wannabes
She exploits them, still they agree
They all say she is punk you see
They're a bunch of Avril wannabes
Hate Jess'ca Simpson and Britney
oh they're a bunch of Avril wannabes
Bunch of Avril wannabes
Bunch of Avril wannabes

Guitar riffs, a catchy song
When they want music, Put "Let Go" on
"Want you all to follow me
instead of that slut Britney"

They love her style
They feel her pain
They cant even pronounce Bowie's name
They are very misinformed young teens
They're a bunch of Avril wannabes

They are a
They are a
They are a
They are a
They are a
They are a

"He was a sk8er boi, she said see you later boy"

"I don't know who you are, but I'm with you"

Cool. I hate Avril wannabes. I have a corset-type top that has a tie with it, and people seem to think that it's some kind of Avril wannabe-ism..but I just like wearing it for the sheer weirdness. Wy can't people see that Avril is as pop as any boyband???

I remember reading this (the Bowie line is the one I remember best) and thinking it was very funny, but it took my vote, so I must have hit the back button before submitting my vote, before. Nice job.

Billy F. - Nice job. 5's...actually I don't have anything against Avril Lavigne and whether anybody wants to imitate her is their problem. Only thing is it's hard to imagine that many totally self-absorbed people all standing around in the same general area all looking just about the same with "racoon" eye make-up and half-knotted ties. But I guess I would prefer that to the "botox/pop-tart" look.

Haven't heard much from Avril lately. What a shame....wonder if those ties are still around?
