The moment our narrator first looks into the future, sees what has been laid out for them--the phones bursting with distractions, the restrictive clothes, the mall bars--and says, "yeah, no thanks."
Denying the given for the preferred, a young punk is born. And they're asking you if you wanna come along for the ride, ice cream stains and all.
I don't want to go to school,
I just want to stay and play with you,
and wear my ice cream shorts.
I don't want to break the rules,
but I'll do it!
If it means we can stay like this
They can take their news reports,
pants full of a cell-phone buzzin'.
I just want my ice cream shorts,
no laundry or nuthin'!
Tell me, do you feel the same way?
Do you hate your collared shirts?
Do you want to go to work?
You could stay and play with me;
we'll play blocks and dinosaurs,
and these stains will last forever!
Chorus, rad solos, etc.
