Everybody take a sip from the bottle
Before we spin it
As if sex is a game
And alcohol’s the only way to win it
We don’t fight fair in fact
We’re pitifully prepared to cheat
Here we’re not looking for love
Just for the safest place to sleep

You’re kind of an asshole
You’re almost immortal
Everyone loves you
Because they were taught to

I’ve got gay friends in straightjackets
Straight friends with giant closets to hide in
I’ve thrown up in every room of your mansion
It’s Jawbreaker music, let’s get those cavities dancin’
You’re mp3somes leave little
To our already oversexed imaginations
Now you’re conducting an orchestra of awkward silences
And all the girls want to give you a
One-night standing ovation

You’re kind of an asshole
You’re almost immortal
Everyone loves you
Because they were taught to
You’re kind of an asshole
You’re almost immortal
Everyone loves you
Because they were taught to

I’m not looking for forgiveness
Just a river with a currant
And I’m selecting socks that best compliment
The cement shoes that I’m dressed in
I bought a life vest
It’s the best you can buy
When I wade into the water
I probably won’t die
I just hope it hurts enough
For me to learn my lesson

You’re kind of an asshole
You’re almost immortal
Everyone loves you
Because they were taught to
You’re kind of an asshole
You’re almost immortal
Everyone loves you
Because they were taught to
