I want my money back
I want my money back
It's all or nothing

And nothing's all I ever get
Every time I turn it on
I burn it up and burn it out

It's always something
There's always something going wrong
That's the only guarantee
That's what this is all about

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie, and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

And all the morons
And all the stooges with their coins
They're the ones who make the rules
It's not a game, it's just a rout

There's desperation
There's desperation in the air
It leaves a stain on all your clothes
And no detergant gets it out

And we're always slipping through the the cracks
Then the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

I want my money back
I want my money back

What about love?
It's defective!
It's always breaking in half

What about sex?!
It's defective!
It's never built to really last

What about your family?
It's defective!
All the batteries are shot

What about your friends?
They're defective!
All the parts are out of stock

What about hope?
It's defective!
It's corroded and decayed

What about faith?
It's defective!
It's tattered and it's frayed

What about your Gods?
They're defective!
They forgot the warranty

What about your town?
It's defective!
It's a dead end street to me

What about your school?
It's defective!
It's a pack of useless lies

What about your work?
It's defective!
It's a crock and then you die

What about your childhood?
It's defective!
It's dead and buried in the past

What about your future?
It's defective!
And you can shove it up your ass!!

I want my money back
I want my money back

It's all or nothing
And nothing's all I ever get
Every time I turn it on
I burn it up and burn it out

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie, and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

And we're always slipping through the the cracks
Then the movie's over-fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!
