  LIFE IS A LEMON AND I WANT MY MONEY BACK

(I want my money back!)
(I want my money back!)

It's all or nothing and nothing's all I ever get
Every time I turn it on, I burn it up and burn it out
It's always something, there's always something going wrong
That's the only guarantee, that's what this is all about

It's a never-ending attack
Everything's a lie and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

And all the morons, and all the stooges with their coins
They're the ones who make the rules—it's not a game it's just a rout
There's desperation, there's desperation in the air
It leaves a stain on all your clothes and no detergent gets it out

And we're always slipping thru the cracks
When the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

(I want my money back!)
(I want my money back!)

(what about love?—it's defective!)
It's always breaking into half
(what about sex?—it's defective!)
It's never build to really last

(what about your family?—it's defective!)
All the batteries are shot
(what about your friends?—they're defective!)
All the parts are out of stock

(what about hope?—it's defective!)
It's corroded and decayed
(what about faith?—it's defective!)
It's tattered and it's frayed

(what about your Gods?—they're defective!)
They forgot the warranty
(what about your town?—it's defective!)
It's a dead end street to me

(what about your school?—it's defective!)
It's a pack off useless lies!
(what about your work—it's defective!)
It's a crock and then you die

(what about your childhood?—it's defective!)
It's dead and buried in the past
(what about your future?—it's defective!)
And you can shove it up your ass!

(I want my money back!)
(life is a lemon)
(I want my money back!)
(life is a lemon, life is a lemon)

It's all or nothing and nothing's all I ever get
Every time I turn it on I burn it up and burn it out

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

And we're always slipping thru the cracks
When the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back—back—back—back—back....

(I want my money back!)
(I want my money back!)
(life is a lemon).
