(Here we go motherfuckers) Do you want to come to a party My friends picked me up in their truck at 11:30 This things at a frat house but the people are cool there Reluctant I followed but I never dreamed there Would be someone there who would catch my attention I wasn't out searching for love or affection So I paid my 3 and the girls got in free Shine the beer for tequila and we headed into the party
And then in the backyard some terrible ska band Someone in the background was doing a keg stand This place is so lame all these girls look the same All these guys have no game I wish I would have stayed In my bed back at home watching TV alone Where I'd put on some porn or have sex on the phone Far from people I hate down from anywhere state Trying to intoxicate girls to give them head after the party
And then I saw her standing there With green eyes and long blond hair She wasn't wearing underwear at least I prayed that She might be the one maybe we'd have some fun Maybe we'd watch the sun rise But that night I learned some girls try too hard
Some girls try too hard Some girls try too hard to impress With the way that they dress With those things on their chests And the things they suggest to me
I couldn't believe what this lady was saying The names she was dropping the games she was playing She dated this guy who now rides for Black Fly's How she's down with the Iwise well constructed disguise Now I'd rather go dateless than stay here and hate this Her volume of makeup her fake tits were tasteless So I said I'd call her but never would bother Until I got turned down by another girl at a party
So when you see her standing there With green eyes and long blonde hair She won't be wearing underwear and you'll discover This girl's not the one and she'll never be fun You should just turn and run because you'll find out that Some girls try too hard
Some girls try too hard Some girls try too hard to impress With the way that they dress With those things on their chest And the things they suggest to me
Some girls try too hard Some girls try too hard

Dj from Hope, NjOne of my favorite things about this song, and I'll admit right up front that it is in a vein of humor more appropriately suited to what one would expect from a 6th grade boy, but the fact that the band got a song played on main-stream commercial radio stations when the chorus to the song is, "vagina, vagina, vagina" is pretty funny...in a junior high school sort of way.
I don't think guys ever lose their juvenile sense-of-humor, which is probably the reason women don't understand why so many guys still find The Three Stooges so funny.
Dj from Hope, NjI have to disagree a bit with Gabe's Songfacts post. It seems to me to be about a guy who goes to what is supposed to be a fun party looking to have a good time and if he's lucky, get laid. (the line, "maybe we'll watch the sun rise" meaning to spend the night and have sex with her)
He meets a girl who is obviously really hot but after a few minutes with her he realizes she is so vain and shallow that he is more than willing to pass up the chance to have casual, hookup-type sex with her and would rather go home alone
