It's Not My Place
The Ramones/The Ramones Lyrics


My mom and dad are always fighting and it's
Getting very un-exciting to get a good job
You need the proper schooling now who the
Hell do ya think you're fooling

But it's not my place oh-no no it's not my
Place no no no it's my-not my-not my place
In the nine to five world and it's not my place
In the nine to five world
And it's not my place with nine to five girl
It's not my place in the nine to five world

Hangin' out with Lester Bangs you all and
Phil Spector really has it all Uncle Floyd
Shows on the T.V. Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, 10cc

But it's not my place
But it's not my place
Don't want to be a working stiff lose my identify
Cause when it comes to working nine to five there
Ain't no place for me ain't my reality, to me

Vin Scelsa's on the radio Ramones are hangin'
Out in Kokomo Roger Corman's on a talk show
With Allan Arkush and Stephen King you know

But it's not my place But It's not my place

Recuerdo escuchar este disco una y otra vez cuando era chico. Me marcó y hasta el día de hoy disfruto de escucharlo una vez más! Larga vida RAMONES!

Mellissa Dalby

This sums it up for me too. I was lucky enough to see these guys live at their peak. I went in thinking that the whole Punk scene was shit. I was converted into a rabid Ramones fan somewhere during the 3rd song. RIP guys.

Bryan Collins

Same here. I was thinking stupid name, stupid haircuts, stupid titles. Man, was I wrong!

Just retired today after 42 years of 9 to 5. I've been playing this song for a while to get me through the last few months.

Hmmmm Nice Bike ツ

Enjoying retirement so far?

Brendan Casey

I hope this is true. Congratulations!!

First Ramones album i heard. This song sums it up for me ever since. Better than any political or ethical explanation about how we should think about the world.
