Copycat (Another So-Called Punk Band)

let me reiterate, 1, 2, 3, 4

i grab a mike and start to sing the same two notes for a whole verse
or add a third and maybe you won’t notice that i can’t sing worth a damn

the kids today, they listen to the same old crap that’s been around
for twenty years and still they think their parents just don’t understand

and even though we’re from new jersey
we try to sound like we’re from cali

but what do you expect?
we’re just another so-called punk band after all
the music biz is wrecked
another sound-alike lame punk band after all

they fill the stores with punk and hip-hop sound-alikes
but they tried the same dumb trick with hair bands
and we all know how well that idea turned out

we call it ‘punk’ but it sounds more like richard marx on crack
and sid vicious could kick all our asses even though he’s six feet underground

the lead guitarist, he can barely play
but you don’t have to be good when every song is a tribute to green day

what a sorry fact
we’re just another so-called punk band after all
the music biz is wack
another sound-alike lame punk band after all

i bet you knew you’d hear the same damn break like in every song
’cause studio engineers ran out of ideas back in 1994

just one step up from writing jingles for commercials
but we’ll mix in some skaa and maybe you won’t notice just how lame we really are

every word sung through our noses
making a mint on teenage posers

what could you expect?
we’re just another so-called punk band after all
the music biz is wrecked
another sound-alike lame punk band after all

even though we’re all from new jersey
faking an accent to sound like we’re from cali
the drummer’s high on an overdose of caffeine
just another so-called punk band after all

dime-a-dozen, the lead guitar can barely play
every song is a tribute to green day
breaking wind takes more originality
just another lame-ass punk band after all

no vibrato, singing through our noses
making a million from teenage posers
singing ’bout high school even though we’re 28
let me reiterate

just what did you expect?
we’re just another copycat band after all
the industry’s a wreck
another sound-alike lame punk band after all
