Be With Me 02:45
"Be With Me" The other day I met this girl She was the cutest girl in the world Brown hair and beautiful eyes I think I like her more than fries I really wanted to flirt with her But I coudldn't think of what to say That's because I work with her I have to see her everyday Oh baby won't you be with me? I really like you, can't you see? Come on baby, won't you be my girl? Make me the happiest guy in the world Very slowly we started to talk Strictly business, nothing major was said Then I had a dream about her And now I can't get her out of my head One night I drank too much Told her I wanted to be more than a friend But I made a fool of myself Looks like I'm gonna be alone again
"You're Living In A Dream World" What's going on upstairs making you think you're always right? No matter what I say or do, we always end up in a fight Call and ask for permission to hang out with my friends If you think this is gonna work, well you'd better think again Cause you're living in a dream world And I cannot satisfy you No matter what the hell I do So I'll see you around I won't just give in to you and hand over my life I only asked you for a date, wasn't looking for a wife You said that you didn't like my whole style of life So I said I've had enough of this, I'm dumping you tonight Cause you're living in a dream world And I cannot satisfy you No matter what the hell I do So I'm saying goodbye
"Relationship Sneakers" She was at the mall, she saw them there The new white sneakers that I would wear She didn't look twice, she bought them for me that night She came home with a shopping bag She said "Try these on" as she ripped off the tag I knew there was something she was trying to tell me, alright She didn't waste a second, she pulled off my old shoes Then threw them in the garbage all the way across the room I said "Wait a minute...I like my Cons a lot" Then she said Whoa oh oh relationship sneakers Whoa oh oh you lace them up tight Whoa oh oh relationship sneakers You'd better put them on or you won't get laid tonight I heard her on the phone talking with her friend "Dressing him up is like playing Barbie and Ken So let's go shopping and buy more clothes for my doll" I thought that she was only joking around But then she came with a bag from Aeropostale She said "Wear this...no more t shirts for you" I wore my shoes to practice, my friends said "What are those?" I told them that my girlfriend bought me brand spanking new clothes They asked me where my Cons were, I tried to change the subject yea But they said Whoa oh oh relationship sneakers Whoa oh oh you lace them up tight Whoa oh oh relationship sneakers You'd better put them on or you won't get laid tonight Whoa oh oh get rid of those sneakers Whoa oh oh it might start a fight Whoa oh oh tell her you still love her But wear your Chuck Taylors when you leave the house tonight
"Bedroom Window" I can see through you You protect me from the rain You show me the world You let the sun shine in Time has changed your look Time has beat you down All the years you shielded me You never wore a frown Years of filth never fade It stays with you forever As hard as I try to clean It still will not get better Life has past me by Through my bedroom window No one sees my pain Through my bedroom window I'm locked up for a while They can't believe I was involved No one thinks I can do it You've been with me through it all
"You're Gonna Be My Girl" Staring at the ceiling Counting up the reasons Why I should give up on you Seems that there are plenty Whenever I'm ready I just have to make a move But there's just one issue I still wanna kiss you And take you home with me Next time we come back here We'll be with each other Yea, and everyone will see You're gonna be my girl Every now and then I See things 20/20 And I realize what to do Then I see that smile And after a while I can't get my mind off you Just imagine what it Would be like if we were Makin' love inside my room I'm the one who's needy And it may sound greedy But here's what you have to do You're gonna be my girlfriend And I'm gonna make it happen Cause I'm comin' now to get you Now it's all planned out So just stick your hand out And walk around with me Everyone is looking How did he get that girl? Air is filled with jealousy Let's go where it's quiet No one will bother us We'll do what we have to do As you take my shirt off I start to wake up Some day this dream will come true
Tongue Tied 02:26
"Tongue Tied" She's got me tongue tied But this one doesn't seem like last time I know this girl who's got me tongue tied I couldn't think of a sweeter crime And when I see her My palms get sweaty and my mouth's dry I wanna tell her what's she's doing A smile is my only outcry I wanna tell her I love her That I only think of her But I can't seem to come up with the words I wanna tell her I need her That I wanna be with her But I can't seem to come up with the nerve Cause she's the one who can do it Yea and I always knew it From the minute I caught that little smile She makes me so happy To be alone with my misery And you know I'll give one more try And then she tells me Says that she loves me, couldn't hurt me Just want her to know she can take it That it's for her to hold or break, yea Want her to know how I see her That I feel like I need her And I can't seem to get her off my mind That she keeps me awake That she's got my heart racing That I think about her all the time Let her know that I'd be there Show her how much I really care If she'd only just give me the time And it's not for those reasons Now I'm begging and pleading That you'll let down your guard just one time And then she walks by I'll take it slow and this time say hi ----- Tongue tied I love the girl who's got me tongue tied She's gonna break your heart (I knew it from the start) You come from different worlds (she's my kind of girl) You know it's gonna hurt (but when she wears that shirt) She's got a different lifestyle (and that cute little smile) She'd rip the heart out your chest (but her laugh is the best) It's not meant to be (when she looks at me) She makes you toss and turn (a lesson I dont wanna learn) You'll never get that girl (and that's why I love her so)
"Nobody Gives A Shit About Us" Nobody gives a shit about us Nobody seems to care at all Nobody listens to our music They'd rather buy their rap songs at the mall Nobody likes the punk rock music Nobody likes the punk rock show They just come to see their friend's band play Playing for the people that they know Because nobody gives a shit about us They don't care about our stupid band They don't care about you or me or him They'd rather see their friends then be our fan Nobody wants to buy our music They'd rather spend it on the rest They'll buy their friend's brand new demo Our scene is a popularity contest Why do we bother making records? Wasting our time in a punk rock band? We're doing what we want so fuck off (We're) having fun so we have the upper hand We know that Nobody gives a shit about us And we don't really care at all
Wonder Why 03:12
"Wonder Why" I wonder why your life had changed And that mine had stayed the same Too often we had a very hard time Is that why you are no longer mine? I wonder why you went away I had plenty more to say What's going on? Why must you hide? Why must you take that other guys side? We were young and we had time to spare You laughed when I said I wanted green hair We always joked and had a great time And then you went and said that damn line Why? Time had ripped us apart We will never be the same Now I see it's better that way That's why life's a funny game Now I sit and think about the past And it's funny how I thought it would last Our time together was time well spent But now I realize that you're not heaven sent Now I know why
"Just Another Girl Song" I like her, I think she's really great I wish that she could be mine I wanna be with her all the time I saw her just the other day And I found a place that I wanna stay It's in your arms, oh come on girl People say we belong together I definitely agree She doesn't feel the same way about me I guess it's just not meant to be, oh yea
Goin' Places 01:02
"Goin' Places" Goin' places with our lives I saw this girl the other day I couldn't think of what to say But goin' places with our lives
Wait And See 02:56
"Wait And See" She looks at you, you look at her You're thinking how to talk to her She wants you, but you can't speak You can't think so you go take a leak You come back, she's still there You can't help, you still stare You get the nerve, you walk up She says "It took you long enough" You say that she is looking fine Why don't we go out just one time? You could have a real good time with me We could go out on the town, just wait and see
"Running Out Of Time" Look at me, I'm so damn pathetic A reject and no place in a girl's mind Life is love and I will never get it Cause I don't have it yet and I'm running out of time My friends make it look so damn easy They hang out with their girlfriends every day I don't know how they do it Cause I don't have it yet and I'm running out of time As each day passes by, I lose more and more Time is such a factor You only get one chance Where do I go from here? Dying alone is my worst fear Every time I sing this song More time has been lost I wish that I could go back And do things differently
"I Love You Girl" I love you girl
Never Forget 15:27
"Never Forget" Sitting alone Radio real loud Remember it like it was yesterday Hearing those songs Changed my life for good More than just a band, you showed us we can do it too Our favorite bands exist because of yours Punk rock's the effect, the Ramones the cause From CBGBs to overseas You gave us musical lobotomies Pick up a guitar and start to play Before you it wasn't this way We all listened and we took your cue And now we all have something to do Joey Ramone Sad to see you go But we still hear you on our stereo You've had lots of fun And look at what you've done Singing for the band that made music fun again You said you couldn't give us anything Modest words coming from the king We took a trip down to Rockaway It's not the same since you went away At every show we do the blitzkrieg bop Sniff some glue and do the cretin hop We wrote this in honor of you Punk rock lives on like you wanted it to You accepted us, now we remember you Thank you for giving us something to do We'll never forget the Ramones Punk rock legends
