  • Her name is Noel
    I have a dream about her
    She rings my bell
    I got gym class in half an hour
    Oh how she rocks
    In Keds and tube socks
    But she doesn't know who I am
    And she doesn't give a damn about me

    'Cause I'm just a teenage dirt bag, baby
    Yeah I'm just a teenage dirt bag, baby
    Listen to Iron Maiden, baby, with me, ooh

    Her boyfriend's a dick
    He brings a gun to school
    And he'd simply kick my ass if he knew the truth
    He lives on my block
    And he drives an I-Roc
    But he doesn't know who I am
    And he doesn't give a damn about me

    'Cause I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby
    Yeah, I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby
    Listen to Iron Maiden, baby, with me, ooh

    Oh yeah, dirt bag
    No she doesn't know what she's missin'
    Oh yeah, dirt bag
    No she doesn't know what she's missin'

    Man I feel like mold
    It's prom night and I am lonely, lo and behold
    She's walkin' over to me this must be fake
    My lip starts to shake

    How does she know who I am?
    And why does she give a damn about me?

    "I've got two tickets to Iron Maiden, baby
    Come with me Friday, don't say maybe
    I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby, like you ooh"

    Ooh yeah, dirt bag
    No she doesn't know what she's missin'
    Ooh yeah, dirt bag
    No she doesn't know what she's missin' Writer/s: Brendan Brown
