City of Mud
Built ourselves a city And we made it out of mud We dried it off this morning Out there in the desert sun And we never do no working Just sit and watch TV Well, I finally found a city Full of people just like me Well we're gonna drag Bruce Springsteen By his axe through our streets By the time we're done The Boss Will look like a side of beef We've got plans for other wankers Who might come through our town Why'know we're going to rid the world Of those Top-40 clowns Then we're going to buy some bombs Just like the big boys have So don't call us losers Or you might just make us mad! Built ourselves a city And we propped it up with wood We were drunk when we made it Hell! We did the best we could And still we don't do no working Just sit and watch TV Well, I finally found a city Full of people just like me Someone tried to build a health spa But we quickly burned it down 'Cause we don't want any healthy people Ruining our town Why'know, we used to have a K-Mart We burnt that sucker too 'Cause they wouldn't let you in Without a shirt or shoes And we never paved the roads We just bought VCR's When you got good movies Hell, you don't need any cars Built ourselves a city And we call it WiseGuyVille And we made a few mistakes Like putting children on the pill And we never do no working 'Cause we got cable TV Hell, I finally found a city Full of people just like me Someday we'll have a new land From sea to shining sea Someday we'll have a country Full of people just like me
