Lyrics: Eraserheads - Shake Yer Head

Shake Yer Head

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
the dog food that they make
I'd just as soon as put myself
on a stake and burn

I saw it coming around
I saw it coming around, yeah
I saw it coming around
So I just, yeah
Shook my head and walked away

I grew up, in a town
Where everybody tried to push me around
The girls were alright, but the guys were tough
They're always bugging me with macho stuff

Well, I aint no stupid fighter
I go for flower power
I've been running every race
just to save my face, yeh

Repeat Refrain

Well, they try to see if you care
Its just a matter of not begging for more
You know its really suicidal to just give in
With people you can never really be sure
O-hoh when it gets down to this

They'll eat you up
When the words get in your head
They'll get 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 that dog food that they make
You'd just as soon as put yourself on a stake and burn

Refrain 2:
You'll see it comin around,
You'll see it coming, comin
When you see it coming around,
you just, yeah
Shake yer head and walk away

Yeah! (walk away) alright!
Shake, shake, shake, shake yer head
Shake, shake, shake, shake yer head
Yes, the one you think with..ho
ohhcmon, cmon
