One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead I met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead
(Punk rock girl), please look at me (Punk rock girl), what do you see? Let's travel round the world Just you and me, punk rock girl
I tapped her on the shoulder And said do you have a bell? She looked at me and smiled and said she did not know
(Punk rock girl), give me a chance (Punk rock girl), let's go slam dance We'll dress like Minnie Pearl Just you and me, punk rock girl
We went to the Philly Pizza Company and ordered some hot tea The waitress said "well no, we only have it iced" So we jumped up on the table and shouted anarchy And someone played a Beach Boys song on the jukebox It it was California Dreamin' So we started screamin' On such a winter's day
She took me to her parents for a Sunday meal Her father took one look at me and he began to squeal
(Punk rock girl), it makes no sense (Punk rock girl), your dad is the vice president Rich as the Duke of Earl Yeah, you're for me punk rock girl
We went to a shopping mall And laughed at all the shoppers And security guards trailed us to a record shop We asked for Mojo Nixon They said he don't work here We said if you don't got Mojo Nixon then your store could use some fixin'
We got into her car away, we started rollin' I said how much you pay for this Said "nothin' man it's stolen"
(Punk rock girl) you look so wild (Punk rock girl) let's have a child We'll name her Minnie Pearl Just you and me Eat fudge banana swirl Just you and me We'll travel round the world Just you and me Punk rock girl

Tommy from Philadelphia, PaThe pizza place named is The Philly Pizza Company and it was also located on South Street, not Village Pizza on Market.
Jeff from Saginaw, MiActually, the Beach Boys DID record a version of California Dreamin'. It was released and getting airplay around the time the Dead Milkmen would've written Punk Rock Girl.
Something I found funny with the video for Punk Rock Girl - the vinyl record that they're vandalizing is by Poison...who were labelmates of the Dead Milkmen. Coincidence...?
Mojo Nixon, like the Dead Milkmen and Poison, recorded for Enigma Records.
Bob from Schenectady, NyThe song states they hear a Beach Boys song, but then cite "California Dreamin'" was playing. "California Dreamin'" is by The Mamas & The Papas. This could be completely intentional to display the singer's lack of knowledge or concern for the fact.
Matt from Cambridge, United KingdomAh a great old song, haven't heard this in a long time! I love their clothing style too, that kind of rockabilly pin up clothing fused with your everyday man style (very badly put).. nice!
Myla from San Diego, CaI love the words, "We went to a shopping mall and laughed at all the shoppers and security guards trailed us to a record shop. We asked for Mojo Nixon They said "He don't work here" We said "If you don't got Mojo Nixon Then your store could use some fixin'" Hilarious silly nonsensical lyrics!!! What a riot! But I always thought the last line said, "Then your store could use some Vixen!" (referring to the female big hair band of the day). Oh well!
Pjironed from Dublin, IrelandThe song starts with a the line "One day I took a walk to Zipperhead..." Zipperhead was clothes shop that sold alternative clothing. They name drop 2 artists Mojo Nixion, who sang "Debbie Gibson Is Pregnant With My Two-Headed Love Child", and the Beach Boys In the song they are kicked out of the Village Pizza Company which is on Market Street in Philadelphia.
