Wouldn't it be great
If no one ever got offended
Wouldn't it be great
To say what's really on your mind
I've always said
That all the rules are made for bending
And if I let my hair down
Would that be such a crime

I want to be
Consequence free
I want to be
Where nothing needs to matter
I want to be
Consequence free
Just sing
Oh, nananananananana

I could really use
To lose my Catholic conscience
Cause I'm getting sick
Of feeling guilty all the time
I won't abuse it
Yeah, I've got the best intentions
For a little bit of anarchy
But not the hurting kind


I couldn't sleep at all last night
Cause I had so much on my mind
I'd like to leave it all behind
But you know it's not that easy
Oh, for just one night

Wouldn't it be great
If the band just never ended
We could stay out late
And we would never hear last call
We wouldn't need to worry
About approval or permission
We could slip off the edge
And never worry about the fall
