  • Gabba-gabba, we accept you, we accept you, one of us
    Gabba-gabba, we accept you, we accept you, one of us

    I don't want to be a pinhead no more
    I just met a nurse that I could go for
    I don't want to be a pinhead no more
    I just met a nurse that I could go for

    I don't want to be a pinhead no more
    I just met a nurse that I could go for
    I don't want to be a pinhead no more
    I just met a nurse that I could go for

    D-U-M-B, everyone's accusing me
    D-U-M-B, everyone's accusing me

    I don't want to be a pinhead no more
    I just met a nurse that I could go for
    I don't want to be a pinhead no more
    I just met a nurse that I could go for

    Gabba-gabba-hey, gabba-gabba-hey
    Gabba-gabba-hey, gabba-gabba-hey
    Gabba-gabba-hey, gabba-gabba-hey
    Gabba-gabba-hey, gabba-gabba-hey
    Gabba-gabba-hey, gabba-gabba-hey

  • Spencer from Mcbride, Canadagabba gabba we accept you we accept you one of us...
  • Fyodor from Denver, CoFWIW, the freaks do have a victory of sorts at the end of the movie, but that's not when they do the chant. The chant occurs in the middle of the flick and is directed at a "normal" woman as a way of announcing that they accept her as a result of her marriage to one of their group, a midget. The woman recoils in horror at the idea of being considered one of them because she is a despicable character who has only married the midget because she has heard he has big money. The audience is more privy to this information than the freaks up to this point of the movie, but her reaction to their acceptance helps show them how she really is. But I shan't give any more away! I will only add that this song blew my mind (years before I knew anything about the movie) and played a major role in my accepting and embracing and making my own PUNK ROCK!!
  • Ralph from Newton, MaThis will always be a favorite of any Ramones fan. In concert, they always had a guy dressed up as a side-show pinhead come on stage carrying a sign that said "Gabba Gabba Hey!"
