  • Woke up this morning with the strangest feeling
    I had a nightmare, but I wasn't dreaming
    I ran outside to see, it's not 2003
    Turned on the radio it's so confusing
    Rappers were singing
    And rockers DJ'ing
    There's no guitars on the songs that they're playing
    I called my shrink to see if I was healthy
    I called my mom and she was taking selfies

    Grew Up on MTV
    When they had Eazy-E
    In California, yeah
    They still knew how to throw a party
    When it was Gin & Juice
    And we had Dre and Snoop
    In California, yeah
    They still knew how to throw a party

    Oh, oh
    Last night, I had a 40 ounce
    Oh, oh, last night, I had a 40 ounce
    Dream

    Now all the punk rockers are over forty
    They're coaching little league and reading stories
    When did the neighborhood ever sound so good
    Looked on the corner and there's no more junkies
    More girls and more grunge and bottles and more fun
    Needles and squatters pissed off at their fathers
    I can't believe it man, it's all so boring
    Went down to Gilman
    Ya, the cops were snoring

    Grew Up on MTV
    When they had Eazy-E
    In California, yeah
    They still knew how to throw a party
    When it was Gin & Juice
    And we had Dre and Snoop
    In California, yeah
    They still knew how to throw a party

    Oh, oh
    Last night, I had a 40 ounce
    Oh, oh, last night, I had a 40 ounce
    Dream

    Grew Up on MTV
    When they had Eazy-E
    In California, yeah
    They still knew how to throw a party
    When it was Gin & Juice
    And we had Dre and Snoop
    In California, yeah
    They still knew how to throw a party

    Na, na, na, na, na, na
    Na, na, na, na, na, na
    Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea
    We still know how to throw a party

    Na, na, na, na, na, na
    Na, na, na, na, na, na
    Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea
    We still know how to throw a party

    Oh, oh
    Last night, I had a 40 ounce
    Oh, oh, last night, I had a 40 ounce
    Oh, oh, last night, I had a 40 ounce
    Oh, oh, last night, I had a 40 ounce
