She said, “I used to play piano
In a band you’ve never heard of
We never left Seattle
Since our bus kept breaking down
We were Cheney And The Chain Chomps
But these days I’m playing solo
True, it’s hard for me to handle
But not too hard to get around”
She said, “I tried to reject culture
But my piercings got infected
My hair dye was an anthem
But it faded like my fame”
She said: “It tastes like two o’clock”
And now I’m taking back the nightmares
That walk around the end
Of my career, without a name

And I say:
Girls don’t like me
I can scream louder than you

She said, “I think I hear the radio
How it’s handling the heartache
Masked mistakes like elevator rock
And monologues that harm
Here, they don’t play music anymore
Just complaints in composition form
Leaving laundry lists
Of female fits
That keep setting off alarms”
She said, “I used to play piano
In a band you’ve never heard of
Did I mention that already?
And how our van ran out of gas
We were Cheney And The Chain Chomps
But these days I’m playing solo
Looking back I see a pattern
Damn the good times never last.”

Come on kids:
Girls don’t like me
I can scream louder than you

He’s learning to waltz just to impress her
A stack of ‘how-to-tapes’ are left on his dresser
He tries and he tries but he’s just too damn clumsy
Only two weeks until that fancy party

The big night arrives and they’re out on the dance floor
He tries to remember what he even bothered for
He steps on her, stumbles; it’s all a disaster
She spits in his face; says he doesn’t deserve her

Girls don’t like me
I can scream louder than you
Girls don’t like me
I can scream louder than you
