  • Do you like rock and roll music?
    'Cause I don't know if I do

    Is anything as strange as a normal person?
    Is anyone as cruel as a normal person?
    Waiting after school for you
    They want to know if you
    If you're normal too
    Well, are you?
    Are you?

    I'm so confused, am I a normal person?
    You know, I can't tell if I'm a normal person, it's true
    I think I'm cool enough, but am I cruel enough?
    Am I cruel enough, for you?

    Girl break you down
    Till everything is normal now, I know
    And they will break down
    Till everything is normal now, I know

    They take their tea at two
    All the normal people, they do
    They burn the jungle down
    While they were sleeping, it grew
    You dream in English now
    In proper English, look how
    You're just the same as me
    It's through

    And they will break you down
    Till everything is normal now, I know
    And they will break down
    Till everyone is normal now, I know
    If that's what's normal now
    I don't want to know
    If that's what's normal now
    Mama don't make me go

    When they get excited, they try to hide it
    Look at those normals go
    When they get excited, they try to hide it
    Look at those normals go
    When they get excited, they try to hide it
    Look at those normals go
    When they get excited, they try to hide it, no!

    And they will break you down
    Till everything is normal now, I know
    And they will break down
    Till everything is normal now, I know

    If that's what's normal now
    I don't want to know
    If that's what's normal now

    Maybe if you hang together
    You can make the changes in our hearts
    And if you hang together
    You can change us, just where should you start?

    I've never really ever met a normal person
    I've never really ever met a normal person
    I've never really ever met a normal person
    I've never really ever met a normal person like you!

    How do you do
    Thank you Writer/s: Jeremy Gara, Regine Chassagne, Richard R Parry, Tim Kingsbury, William Butler, Win Butler
