Lyrics

You hiss and groan

And you constantly moan But you don't ever go away And that's because all you need is me

You roll your eyes Up to the skies Mock horrified - but you're still here All you need is me

There's so much destruction All over the world And all you can do is Complain about me

You bang your head against the wall And say you're sick of it all Yet you remain 'Cause all you need is me

And then you offer your one-and-only joke And you ask me what will I be When I grow up to be a man Me? Nothing!

There's a soft voice singing in your head Who can this be? I do believe it's me There's a naked man standing laughing in your dreams You know who it is But you don't like what it means

There's so much destruction All over the world And all you can do is Complain about me

I was a small fat child in a welfare house, There was only one thing I ever dreamed about And fate has just handed it to me Whoopee!

You don't like me but you love me Either way, you're wrong You're gonna miss me when I'm gone You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You don't like me but you love me Either way, you're wrong You're gonna miss me when I'm gone You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
