HE WAS THE NEXT WAVE ROCKER
THE ONE WE TOLD YOU ABOUT
HE WROTE THE SONGS FOR THE “NEXT” GENERATION
HE KNOCKED THE BOTTOM OUT

HE PUT THE JUICE IN THE MONKEY WITH A HAMMER
HE LET THE TIME GHOST OUT
HE PULLED THE PLUG ON THE “NEXT” GENERATION
AND WATCHED IT THRASH ABOUT

HE WAS THE NEXT WAVE ROCKER
THE ONE WE TOLD YOU ABOUT
HE WROTE THE SONGS FOR THE “NEXT” GENERATION
HE KNOCKED THE BOTTOM OUT

HE PUT A KNOT IN THE MONKEY WITH A HAMMER
HE LET THE TIME GHOST OUT
HE PULLED THE PLUG ON THE “NEXT” GENERATION
AND WATCHED IT THRASH ABOUT

GO! GO!
STUFF IT
PUT IT AWAY!
I DON’T WANNA
SEE OR HEAR
ANYMORE
NO! NO!

LET’S SAY GOODBYE TO THE NEXT WAVE ROCKER
THE ONE WE TOLD YOU ABOUT
FORGET THE SONGS FOR THE “NEXT” GENERATION
WE WATCHED IT FIZZLED OUT

JUMP START THE THE HEART
OF THE MONKEY WITH A HAMMER
DON’T LET THE TIME GHOST OUT
HE PULLED THE PLUG ON THE “NEXT” GENERATION
AND WE CAN DO WITHOUT

THEY SCREAMED
AND THEY LIED
AND THEY JUMPED
AND THEY CRIED
AND THEY THOUGHT
THEY WERE HOT
SMOKING POT
BLOWING SNOT
GETTING SHOT
THEY WERE TAUGHT
TO HAVE
OR HAVE NOT
BUT THEY DID NOT
HAVE THE SENSE
TO STOP

SO THEY WERE CAUGHT
IN THE LOT
WITH THE MONKEY
IN A KNOT
NOT A GOOD THING
THEY WERE PUT
ON THE SPOT
SO THEY SCHEMED
AND THEY LIED
AND THEY JUMPED
AND THEY CRIED
AND GUESS WHAT?
THEIR STORY
WAS BOUGHT!

YOU’RE LOOKING IN THE MIRROR
MIMEOGRAPHING YOUR POSES

A LITTLE SID VICIOUS
A LITTLE GUNS N ROSES

BUT IT’S ALL THE SAME
YOU’RE BLIND AND
YOU’RE LAME
AND IT’S HARD
TO FEEL BAD
WHEN YOU
MOCK YOUR OWN NAME

GO! GO!
STUFF IT
PUT IT AWAY!
I DON’T WANNA
SEE OR HEAR
ANYMORE
NO! NO!
