lyrics

She came out from a Midwest town
Where vultures circle citizens and head for the ground.
So sick and tired of feeling gagged and bound
So she packed up what she needed and got on a greyhound.
Nothing but power chords and a dream to get found.
Just wait ‘til California gets a load of my sound!

She came out trying to be a star.
Only packed a duffle bag and Squier guitar.
Set up shop playing Ramones for tips in a jar
When a dirty club promoter caught her act from the bar.
He said, “You’ve got the tits and ass, I’ll take you so far.
Direct support for Bad Relig’ – just get in my car!”

She came out from a Midwest town
Where her evil pastor father kept her locked underground.
Her brand new father figure has her out on the town.
Promised her fame but she got paraded around.
You want that record deal, then you’d better go down.
Come on, shake your booty baby, show me the brown.

Do do do do, do do do do do do,
Do do do do, do do do do do do.
Do do do do, do do do do do do,
Do do do do, do do do do do do.
All she every wanted was to sell her CDs,
But the only way to do it’s selling 18 pleats.
