  • She works at hot topic
    His heart microscopic
    She thinks that its love but to him its sex
    He listens to emo but fat mike's his hero
    His bank account's zero
    What comes next?

    Same song different chorus
    It's stupid, contagious
    To be broke and famous
    Can someone please save us from punk rock 101
    My Dickies your sweatbands
    My spiked hair, your new vans
    Let's throw up our rock hands for punk rock 101

    She bought him a skateboard, a rail slide, his knee tore
    He traded it for drums at the local pawn shop
    She left him for staring at girls and not caring
    When she cried because she thought Bon Jovi broke up

    Same song second chorus
    It's stupid, contagious
    To be broke and famous
    Can someone please save us from punk rock 101
    My Dickies your sweatbands
    My spiked hair, your new vans
    Let's throw up our rock hands for punk rock 101

    Don't forget to delay...on the very last word
    Seven years later he works as a waiter
    She married a trucker and he's never there
    The story never changes, just the names and faces
    Like Tommy and Gina they're living on a prayer

    Did you just say that?
    I just said

    It's stupid, contagious (same song different chorus)
    To be broke and famous (same song different chorus)
    Can someone please save us from punk rock 101
    My Dickies your sweatbands
    My spiked hair, your new Vans
    Let's shoplift some sweatbands for punk rock 101 Writer/s: BUTCH WALKER, JARET RAY REDDICK
