lyrics

REVENGE OF THE TEENYBOPPERS
(Words and Music - Robert Childs)

I am 14, going on 12
I am totally concerned with myself
I'm the same as any other adolescent
Omnipresent, pubescent and incessant

I hate you
Why don'tcha give me all you've got
I'm so free
Why do you tie me in a knot
Gimme a wine
And another gobstopper
This is the Revenge
Of the T-T-T-Teenybopper

There are rules teenyboppers observe
Demand as a right what you don't deserve
Behave unreasonably, always deride
Fight continually, belch with pride

I hate you
Why don'tcha give me all you've got
I'm so free
Why do you tie me in a knot
Gimme a wine
And another gobstopper
This is the Revenge
Of the T-T-T-Teenybopper

Teenyboppers bounce off the walls
Teenyboppers smash through the doors
Up and down the chimneys, up and down the stairs
Teenyboppers invading everywhere!

The jungle of birth, the desert of life
Spawns the ancient sacrificial rite
Elders on the altar of the new Stonehenge
Mutton to the slaughter - Teenyboppers Revenge

I hate you
Why don'tcha give me all you've got
I'm so free
Why do you tie me in a knot
Gimme a wine
And another gobstopper
This is the Revenge
Of the T-T-T-Teenybopper.
