Punk Rock Girl (my ticket to the war)

Punk Rock Girl (my ticket to the war)

Angie Aparo

 

VERSE 1

Leather jacket

Just like Joey Ramone

And every where I'd go

You were with me

Cross the river

Jumping from stone to stone

Searching for our own

Somewhere In the city

And your momma

And your momma told ya not to go

Yeah your momma

Yeah your momma

Said that we'd get old

All you rock and roll dreamers

Never fearing no reaper

 

CHORUS

Punk rock girl

There still might be a chance

Let this lonely world

Fade into the speakers

And the crash of a drum

Won't let us remember

What we've become

 

VERSE 2

Punk girl 

My beautiful

Still got my ticket to the war

I don't know what it's for

 

Punk girl 

My beautiful

Still got my rebel yell

In a boom box by the door

 

VERSE 3

You were my soldier of youth

We fought the battle of teenage resistance

But the mirror ball

Could not spin the truth

Oh Jessica it spun us out of existence 

 

And your momma

Said that we'd get old

All you rock and roll dreamers

Never fear no reaper

 

SOLO

Still got my ticket to the war

Still got my rebel yell in a boom box by the door

Still got my ticket to the war

 

VERSE 4

Well I still got my ticket to the war

Always the same old shit

All them politicians

Just like greedy whores

The same old shit

Selling communist manifestos

In convenience stores

I still got my ticket to the war

 

VERSE 5

And mother freedom

She left her old man behind

I saw her shacking up with some pussy

Spitting some shitty rhymes

Selling MP3s while the Afghanistan's

Kiss their ass goodbye

Mother freedom

Left her old man behind

 

VERSE 6

And oh that sad poet 

He done lost all his power

Spends all day long

Writing three minute songs

For the corporate towers

But I remember when music

Was louder than a gun

And we had the man on the run

Yeah we had the man on the run

 

BRIDGE

Give me back my 1 to the 4 to the 5

Give me back my Joey Ramone

Give me back my 1 to the 4 to the 5

Give me back my Joey Ramone

Give me back my 1 to the 4 to the 5

Give me back my Joey Ramone

 

SOLO

Still got my ticket to the war

 

BRIDGE

Give me back my 1 to the 4 to the 5

Give me back my Joey Ramone

Give me back my 1 to the 4 to the 5

Give me back my Joey Ramone

Give me back my 1 to the 4 to the 5

Give me 

 

CHORUS (ALT)

Punk rock girl

There still might be a chance

This crazy world 

Will fade into the speaker

In the crash of a drum

In the crash of a drum

 

Punk rock girl

There still might be a chance

This crazy world 

Will fade into the speaker

In the crash of a drum

In the crash of a drum

 

This crazy world 

Will fade into the speaker

Punk rock girl

There still might be a chance

 

Punk rock girl

There still might be a chance

 

You guys got that ?
