Punk Rock Girl
Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics

One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead
I met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead
Punk rock girl, please look at me
Punk rock girl, what do you see?
Let's travel round the world
Just you and me punk rock girl

I tapped her on the shoulder
And said do you have a beau?
She looked at me and smiled and said she did not know
Punk rock girl, give me a chance
Punk rock girl, let's go slamdance
We'll dress like Minnie Pearl
Just you and me punk rock girl

We went to the Phillie Pizza Company
And ordered some hot tea
The waitress said 'Well no, we only have it iced'
So we jumped up on the table and shouted 'anarchy'
And someone played a Beach Boys song on the jukebox
It was 'California Dreamin'
So we started screamin'
'On such a winter's day'

She took me to her parents for a Sunday meal
Her father took one look at me and he began to squeal
Punk rock girl, it makes no sense
Punk rock girl, your dad is the Vice President
Rich as the Duke of Earl
Yeah you're for me punk rock girl

We went to a shopping mall
And laughed at all the shoppers
And security guards trailed us to a record shop
We asked for Mojo Nixon
They said 'He don't work here'
We said 'If you don't got Mojo Nixon
Then your store could use some fixin'

We got into a car
Away we started rollin'
I said 'How much you pay for this?'
She said 'Nothing man, it's stolen'
Punk rock girl, you look so wild
Punk rock girl, let's have a child
We'll name her Minnie Pearl
Just you and me, eating fudge banana swirl
Just you and me, we'll travel round the world
Just you and me, punk rock girl

punk rock girl? Nah, more like ska punk girl ♥


Why not both?


I really don't understand why so many people don't like this cover. I dunno. Maybe it's because I listened to the Original after listening to this one.


Pepsi has more of a citrus kick, and coke more of a vanilla. You cant say it tastes objectively better when taste is and always will be purely subjective.

Evan11of10 it seems like whenever people get accustomed to a certain song, whenever a change happens, they just... dont like it. streetlight has been a religion for me for a couple years now and every single cover sounds alot better than the original, mainly because in them the song sounds alot happier and the writers do an amazing job with fitting chords jn certajn places


I was SO thrilled to discover that they covered this song! SO thrilled!


I love both versions. Such a great song!!!

Accidently found this while looking up NOFX. Best mistake I've ever made.


Streetlight Manifesto makes the best covers. <3

Thanks for this. I love the original, but I feel that every song needs more Ska (not more cowbell). Your version is GREAT!
So, I give this a big LIKE!!!
