The Replacements Let It Be



I Will Dare


How young are you?
How old am I?
Let's count the rings around my eyes
How smart are you?
How dumb am I?
Don't count any of my advice


Oh, meet me anyplace or anywhere or anytime
Now I don't care, meet me tonight
If you will dare, I might dare

Call me on Thursday, if you will
Or call me on Wednesday, better still
Ain't lost yet, so I gotta be a winner
Fingernails and a cigarette's a lousy dinner
Young, are you?

Meet me anyplace or anywhere or anytime
Now, I don't care, meet me tonight
If you will dare, I will dare

Meet me anyplace or anywhere or anytime
Now, I don't care, meet me tonight
If you will dare, I will dare


Favorite Thing


Yeah!

Yeah, kid, it's a-really hip
With plenty of flash and you know it
Yeah, dad, you're rocking real bad
Don't break your neck when you fall down laughing
Donna, wanna, Donna

Yeah, I know I look like hell
I smoke and I drink and I'm feeling swell
Yeah, I hear you think it's weird
But I don't give a single shit

Yeah, man, it's a-hip, you know what I'm saying
It's a-hip, you know what I'm saying
And I hear it
My heart aches, it's a-looking for a dolly
Looking for a dolly, can't you hear it
Wanna be someting, wanna be anything

Yeah, I know I feel this way
But I ain't gonna ever change
Yeah, I hear, I think, I know
God don't give a shit, anyhow

You're my favorite thing (4X)

You ’re mine
You ’re mine
You ’re mine

Bar nothing

Think big
I think big (think) once in a while
I think big (think) once in a while


We're Comin' Out


One more chance to get it all wrong
One more chance to get it all wrong
One more night to do it all wrong
One more warning
One more warning sound
We're comin' out
We're comin' out
We're comin' out

One more day anyway
One more chance threw away
One more night anyway runaway anyway
We're comin' out
We're comin' out
We're comin' out

(Finger snapping)

One more chance to get it all wrong
One more time to do it all wrong
One more night to get it half right
One more warning
One more warning sound
We're comin' out
We're comin' out **repeat to fade**


Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out


Tommy gets his tonsils out
Hi Susie, do you know what?
I've been in the hospital...

Now open wide, the doctor's here
Everything is fine, got nothing to fear
Strap 'em down, we're outta gas
Stop your bawling, you little brat

Get this over with, I'm off in a hour
Didn't wash up, yesterday I took a shower
Get this over with, I tee off in an hour
My Cadillac's running

Let's...
Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now
Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now
Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now
Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now

Open wide, you little snot
That's the way we knock ‘em out
Got nothing to fear
Got nothing to be afraid of
Your doctor's here, nothing to be afraid of

Let's get this over, I tee off in an hour
Didn’t wash up
Yesterday, I took myself a shower
My Cadillac's running

Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now
Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now
Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now
Rip, rip, we're gonna rip 'em out now

How ya doin?
How do you feel after the operation?
Can I come by?
I'm really feeling terrible?


Androgynous


Here come Dick, he's wearing a skirt
Here comes Jane, y'know she's sporting a chain
Same hair, revolution
Same build, evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Don't get him wrong and don't get him mad
He might be a father, but he sure ain't a dad
And she don't need advice that's sent at her
She's happy with the way she looks
She's happy with her gender

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous

Mirror image, see no damage
See no evil at all
Kewpie dolls and urine stalls
Will be laughed at
The way you're laughed at now

Now, something meets Boy, and something meets Girl
They both look the same
They're overjoyed in this world
Same hair, revolution
Unisex, evolution
Tomorrow who's gonna fuss
And tomorrow Dick is wearing pants
And tomorrow Janie's wearing a dress
Future outcasts and they don't last
And today, the people dress the way that they please
The way they tried to do in the last centuries

And they love each other so
Androgynous
Closer than you know, love each other so
Androgynous


Unsatisfied


Look me in the eye
Then, tell me that I'm satisfied
You satisfied?
Look me in the eye
Then, tell me that I'm satisfied
Hey, are you satisfied?

And it goes so slowly on
Everything I've ever wanted
Tell me what's wrong

Look me in the eye
And tell me that I'm satisfied
Were you satisfied?
Look me in the eye
Then, tell me that I'm satisfied
And now are you satisfied?

Everything goes
Well, anything goes all of the time
Everything you dream of
Is right in front of you
And liberty is a lie

Look me in the eye
And tell me that I'm satisfied
Look me in the eye
Unsatisfied
I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied
I'm so dissatisfied
I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied
I'm so unsatisfied
Well, I'm-a
I'm so, I'm so unsatisfied
I'm so dissatis, the saddest


Seen Your Video


All day, all night, all music video
Seen your video, the phony rock 'n' roll
We don't want to know, seen your video
Your phony rock 'n' roll
We don't wanna know
We don't wanna know
We don't wanna know
We don't wanna know
We don't wanna know
We don't wanna know


Gary 's Got A Boner


Hut..yeah..c'mon

C'mon little kiddie, get your head on right
C'mon little kiddie, get your head on straight
You're gonna get her down
You're gonna finger to her
You're gonna suck me down
You're gonna see her out...

Forget about the lights, girl, and the cars
You never heard somebody so far
Grab a hold, gonna hold
You're gonna stick it to her
You're gonna stick it to her

Gary ’s got a boner
Cuz Gary's got a boner
Gary ’s got it
He’s got it
Gary got a boner
Gary 's got a boner now

You locked that door, rolled up that window
Tied your sister up by the fender
I don't know if I will
You're gonna stick it to her
Yes, you're gonna stick it to her

Gary got a boner
Gary 's got a boner
Gary 's got a soft-on
But not for long, long, long, long
Gary ’s gotta boner, long, long, long, long


Sixteen Blue


Drive yourself right up the wall
No one hears and no one calls
It's a boring state
It's a useless wait, I know

Brag about things you don't understand
A girl a woman, a boy a man
Everything is sexually vague
Now you're wondering to yourself
If you might be gay

Your age is the hardest age
Everything drags and drags
One day, baby, maybe help you through
Drive your ma to the bank
Tell your pa you got a date
But you're lying, now you're lying on your back

Try to figure out, they wonder what next you'll pull
You don't understand anything sexual
I don't understand
Tell my friends I'm doing fine

Your age is the hardest age
Everything drags and drags
You're looking funny
You ain't laughing, are you?
Sixteen blue
Sixteen blue **repeat**


Answering Machine


1, 2, 3, 4

Try and breathe some life into a letter
Losing hope, never gonna be together
My courage is at it's peak
You know what I mean
How do say you're O.K. to
An answering machine?
How do you say good night to
An answering machine?

Big time's got its losers
Small town's got its vices
A handful of friends
One needs a match, one needs some ice
Call-waiting phone in another time zone
How do you say I miss you to
An answering machine?
How do say good night to
An answering machine?

(Operator voiceover)

I get enough of that

Try to free a slave of ignorance
Try and teach a whore about romance

How do you say I miss you to
An answering machine?
How do you say good night to
An answering machine?
How do you say I'm lonely to
An answering machine?
The message is very plain
Oh, I hate your answering machine
I hate your answering machine
I hate your answering machine
I hate your answering machine...
