Lyrics

We hate it when our friends become successful

We hate it when our friends become successful

Oh, look at those clothes Now look at that face, it's so old And such a video Well, it's really laughable

We hate it when our friends become successful And if they're Northern, that makes it even worse And if we can destroy them You bet your life we will Destroy them If we can hurt them Well, we may as well... It's really laughable

You see, it should've been me It could've been me Everybody knows Everybody said so They say: "Ah, you have loads of songs So many songs More songs than they can stand Verse Chorus Middle-eight Break, fade" Just listen...
