Shake Your Head

Eraserheads

I was born upside down
I felt my grandma put my feet on the ground
They put a spoon in my mouth
And everyone was shocked to hear me shout

Well I knew I couldn’t take
All that dog food that they make
I’d just as soon as put myself
On a steak and burn

[chorus]
I saw it coming around
I saw it coming around, yeah
i saw it coming around
And so I just
Yeah, shook my head and walked away

I grew up in a town
Where everybody tired to push me around
The girls were alright
But the guys were tough
They always buggin me with macho stuff

Well I ain’t no stupid fighter
I go for flower power
I’d been running every race
Just to save my face
yeah

[repeat chorus]

Oh… well they try to see if you care
It’s just a matter of not begging for more
You know it’s really suicidal
To just give in
With people you can never really be sure

Uh-oh when it gets down to this
They’ll pick you up
When the words get in your head
They’ll stitch you up
It’s a saving grace, to have enough
When you find yourself
In a compromising spot
You should know
You shouldn’t take
All the dog food that they make
You just as soon as put yourself
On a steak and burn

You’ll see it coming around
You’ll see it coming, coming around
When you
Oh, when you see it coming around
You just…
Yeah
Shake your head and walk away
Yeah
Alright

Shake, shake, shake, shake your head
