  • (This fucking song is all personality)
    (Dude, that's the shit!)

    Well we've all heard about
    How the guys in the band
    Weren't the popular kids in school
    And now you hate your parents
    'cause of the way you turned out
    But in the end the blame's on you

    And we all sympathize with your torn-apart heart
    And your really artistic worldly views
    It sells records when you're sad these days
    It's super cool to be mad these days

    I think rock and roll is really funny
    When it's serious

    Don't hate us 'cause we're happy
    Don't hate us 'cause we're beautiful
    Don't hate us if we make you smile
    Or if we go the extra mile
    To make someone feel better
    On a really shitty day
    And if you're hearing what I'm saying then
    I want to hear you say, "I'm gay!" (I'm gay!)
    Say, "I'm gay!" (I'm gay!)

    Let's start a movement, let's start it right now
    And if you don't know where to start
    I can show you I'm your new team captain
    Put your left hand over your heart
    And repeat after me

    It's perfectly fine to be a happy individual
    It's perfectly fine to be a happy individual
    Chris, Gary? You guys wanna join in?
    (Yeah, buddy, sure, sorry dude)
    It's perfectly fine to be a happy individual
    It's perfectly fine to be a happy individual
    Very nice, very nice.

    Don't hate us 'cause we're happy
    Don't hate us 'cause you're miserable
    Don't hate us if we make you smile
    Or if we go the extra mile
    To make someone feel better on a really shitty day
    And if you're hearing what I'm saying then
    I want to hear you say, "I'm gay!" (I'm gay!)
    Say, "I'm gay!" (I'm gay!)

    That's right, ladies and gentleman!
    Pick up the phone
    'cause Bowling For Soup is on the line!
    And you don't have to be sad anymore!
    You don't have to be mad anymore!
    We can all join hands and do ring around
    The freaking rosie!
    In fact, can we can get some "La la"s up in here?

    It sells records when you're sad these days
    It's super cool to be mad these days
    I think rock and roll is really funny
    When it's serious

    Yo, where my "La la"s at!

    La la-la la, la-la la-la
    La la la la
    La la-la la, la-la la-la
    La la la la
    La la-la la, la-la la-la
    La la la la
    La la-la la, la-la la-la
    La la la la
    La la-la la, la-la la-la Writer/s: JARET RAY REDDICK
