lyrics

VERSE 1
Sometimes I get sick and tired
Of the world not knowing who I am
It’s become such a silly game
Where I’m the only one playin’

They’d have me push away my cards
And embrace the status quo
“Just give up while you can,” they’d say
“The odds are far too low”

PRE-CHORUS 1
(You should go out)
(And get yourself a real job)
(You know?)

CHORUS 1
But I will never be Mr. Regular
It doesn’t matter, baby, how hard I try
No, I will never be Mr. Regular
Take the idea, toss it out of your mind
Goodbye

VERSE 2
I passed a boy at the school
He asked me if I was the walking dead
And I said yeah (yeah)
Yeah (yeah-yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah
I’m a horror convention

He asked me how I spend my hours
Evelyn Waugh
And really, really long showers

PRE-CHORUS 2
(You should go out)
(And get yourself a pretty girl)
(You know?)

CHORUS 2
But I will never be Mr. Regular
It doesn’t matter, baby, how hard I try
No, I will never be Mr. Regular
Take the idea, toss it out of your mind
Goodbye

BRIDGE
Aren't diamond rings
Such precious things?

PRE-CHORUS 3
(You should go out)
(And drink yourself a Molotov)
(You know?)

CHORUS 3
But I will never be Mr. Regular
It doesn’t matter, baby, how hard I try
No, I will never be Mr. Regular
Take the idea, toss it out of your mind
No I will never be Mr. Regular
It doesn’t matter, baby, how hard I try
No, I will never be Mr. Regular
Take the idea, toss it out of your mind
Goodbye
