Teenage Dirtbag

Words & Music:

Brendan Brown (Wheatus)


    E           B  E        A

Her name is Noel.  I have a dream about her.

E                B           E                  A

She rings my bell.  I've got gym class in half an hour.

E                B  E                 A

Oh, how she rocks-- kids in tube socks

E           A          E   B    E                 A           E   B

She doesn't know who I am-- and she doesn't give a damn about me.



      E          B          E     A

'Cause I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby.

E          B           E    A

I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby

E         B    E          A         E

Listen to Iron Maiden, baby, with me.


Ooh!  Ooh!  Ooh!  Ooh!  Oooh!


Her boyfriend's a dick.  He brings a gun to school.

And he'd simply kick my ass if he knew the truth.

He lives on my block and he drives an IRoc.

He doesn't know who I am and he doesn't give a damn about me.





E  B          E  A       E  B     E                          A

    I really am-- a dirtbag.  Oh, she doesn't know what she's missing.

E  B          E  A       E   B       E                       A

    I really am-- a dirtbag.  No, she doesn't know what she's missing.


Man, I feel that mood.  It's Prom Night and I am lonely.

Lo and behold, she's walking over to me.

This must be fake, my lip starts to shake.

How does she know who I am?  And why does she give a damn about me?


CHORUS:  [new words]

I've got two tickets to Iron Maiden, baby.

Come with me Friday, don't say maybe

I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby like you

Ooh!  Ooh!  Ooh!  Ooh!  Oooh!
