  • We don't want your approval
    It's 1978
    We know we're not in tune
    We know we'll never be great

    We met at this bar
    A little piece of fame
    Up on the bandstand
    Nobody knows no shame

    Louie louie talk
    Well what you got on me
    Louie louii, I
    I don't even
    Try, try, try, try, try

    We've got so much to live for
    It's not too late
    We've got so much to live for
    It's not too late

    Jennifer my scony
    Don't need anybody's pain
    She had enough desire
    To shatter window panes
    She said "I'm not fond of small talk"
    Down on Levenworth and Poke
    She said I don't need your heroes
    To make my life a joke
    ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

    We've got so much to live for
    It's not too late
    We've got so much to live for
    It's not too late

    You take a Mill Valley charmer
    Mix in some Bowie trash
    A little too much mascara
    Under a surgeon's mask

    She cuddles like a puppy
    Yeah man, you know she will
    You've never heard her bark like an animal, ha
    Yeah, I've heard her myself
    She hit me in the head with a fantasy
    Yeah it's stuck to my cheek
    My lip was bleeding
    Blood running down my face

    I put her back on my own yeah
    Punched myself in the mouth
    I put her back on my own head
    Punched myself in the mouth

    I turn on the tv
    You're teeth were burning bright
    I turn off the tv
    And kiss myself good night
    Good night, good night

    [Chorus: Repeat 2X] Writer/s: ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO, CHARLES PROPHET
