Alternative Baby
Reel Big Fish Lyrics


Well, I see you up on stage
And I don't know just what you're sayin',
But you're my hero... whoa
And a guy just kicked me in the head,
A little girl just passed out dead,
I'm in between a big jock and a sweaty skinhead
But I love you whatever that means...
But I don't want to talk to you,
'Cause I know I'd just say some thing stupid
And I know you've got better things to do
Hey, little alternative girl
Don't you want to be my friend?
You know I'm singin' all my songs to you
It's all right if you don't understand
Maybe I shouldn't be so serious,
Tellin' you that everything sucks
'Cause I don't want to bring you down
But it never ever works out right,
I'm gonna lose, give up the fight,
I won't get what I want won't get anything
But I love you...whatever that means
And they don't want to talk to me
'Cause they know what I'll turn out to be,
I said I was cool but I can't lie to you (but I do)
Hey, little alternative girl
Don't you want to be my friend?
You know I'm singin' all my songs to you
It's all right if you don't understand
And I don't want to start again cause I know
It'll be the same in the end
I didn't like it the first time anyway

"Maybe I Shouldn't Be So Serious, Telling You That Everything Sucks - Cause I don't Wanna Bring You Down." - This is the most amazing definition of ska in my mind.

Yeah, the world sucks, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun with it.

To my literally alternative girl. (I don't think there's another).

I've seen them 5-6 times. They're one of the best live bands ever.

adam schipper

I've seen them live in Winnipeg twice, and they're consummate professionals. Some of the best shows I've ever been to.
