We thought we'd start a band, we thought we'd be the best
the kind ya never heard but seen the name on back of vests
the best we could come up with was "Citizens' Arrest"
ya knew that we were punk from the way we were dressed

We thought that we would make it punk rock big
but we're so punk, we only lasted for one gig

We wrote a couple songs, they all went pretty fast
my older brother said that we were better than Crass
we thought that playin out was gonna be a blast
they said that we were headlining, they meant we were last

I swear to you, the whole system is rigged
yea we're so punk, we only lasted for one gig

I handed out a flier to everyone I know
but wouldn't you believe it - not a single one showed
I asked if we got paid, the bartender said "no,
but don't you boys forget to settle up 'fore ya go"

I flipped him off, said "hey, its punk ya dick!"
yea we're so punk, we only lasted for one gig
