I'm so brave
Too bad I'm a baby
In this case he's basically saying 'I'm so brave but I'm scared.' Is he brave or is he scared? (Just like the line "I'm brave but I'm chickens**t" from Alanis Morissette's "Hand In My Pocket.")

Everywhere I go there's someone in a trench coat staring at me
When I'm not at home I'm sure someone's rummaging through my trash
Whatever could they want from me
Is it just a part of a giant government conspiracy?
I gotta go see my doctor about this itchy pentagram-shaped rash.
Trench coats? Government conspiracies? Pentagram-shaped rash? This dude's got problems!

I'd buy you a green dress
(But not a real green dress, that's cruel)
What the heck is so cruel about a green dress? Unless it, too, was made from animals (like the fur coat, which is mentioned earlier, and also described as 'cruel'), but how many green animals are there, besides frogs? I'm baffled.

If I had a million dollars
(If I had a million dollars)
I buy you a fur coat (but not a real fur coat that's cruel)
If I had a million dollars (If I had a million dollars)
I'd buy you an exotic pet (like a llama or an emu)
Ok, so a fur coat is cruel, but yet keeping a wild animal as a pet is all right with you? That's messed up logic!

I knew you
before the fall of Rome
20,000 years A.D.? I don't think so!

Chickity china the Chinese chicken
You have drumstick and your brain starts tickin'
Watching X-files with no lights on
All I can do is laugh whenever I hear this.

Hold it now and watch the hoodwink
As I make you stop-think
You'll think you're looking at Aquaman
Great song, but these lyrics are completely meaningless. I'm sure they were chosen purely because they sound cool when sung!

Hot like wasabe when I bust rhymes,
Big like Leann Rimes,
Because I'm all about value.
Bert Kaempfert's got the mad hits,
You try to match wits,
You try to hold me but I bust through.
The entire song is a complete joke. I don't think any band other than these guys could have gotten away with it.

Maybe I'll hide out under there-
I just made you say underwear
What the heck does that mean? They shouldn't have even put that line in if they couldn't rhyme anything besides 'underwear' with 'there'. IOW, a lame rhyme!
