Does anyone remember Tony
A quiet boy, little over weight
He had breasts like a girl
When I wasn't too busy feeling lonely
I'd stare over his shoulder
At a map of the world
He always finished all his homework
Raised his hand in homeroom 
He called the morning attendance
With the pledge allegiance to the (gloom) ?

Hey Tony, what's so good about dying 
He said I think I might do a little dying today
He looked in the mirror and saw 
A little fagot starin' back at him
Pulled out a gun and blew himself away

I hated every day of high school
It's funny, I guess you did too
Its funny how I never knew
There I was sitting right behind you
They wrote it in the local rag
Death comes to the local fag
I guess you finally stopped believing
That any hope would ever find you
Well I know that story,
I was sitting right behind you

Hey Tony, what's so good about dying 
He said I think I might do a little dying today
He looked in the mirror and saw 
A little fagot starin' back at him
Pulled out a gun and blew himself away

Hey Tony what's so good about dying, dying
Hey Tony what's so good about dying, dying
Hey Tony, what's so good about dying 
He said I think I might do a little dying today
He looked in the mirror and saw 
A little fagot starin' back at him
Pulled out a gun and blew himself away
Pulled out a gun and blew himself away
Pulled out a gun and blew himself away
Tony
