Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Well, you can change your mind
If it makes you feel fine
And you can scream and shout
If it makes you feel happy, singing
Oh yeah, I left my baby
Oh yeah, yeah, baby

How come you've got to make a fool of me
When you know it's not true to me
I don't know when or where you'll ever see
But your plan keeps fooling me
How come you've got to make a fool of me
When all I ever seem to do is scream
You go and try to make a fool of me
Oh yeah

I've got a movie playing in my mind
I've got some money but it isn't mine
And if you wanna be a bummer, take a number
Baby, get in line

Cause it's a bummer in the summertime
But everyone's gonna have a real good time
Oh yeah

Put your left hand out and shake it all about
Cause it's arms and legs, bacon and eggs
And you can rearrange your mind if it makes you feel fine
And you can lose your faith if it puts you in your place
And you can chew on gum if it makes you have fun
And you can drink green soup on your way from the kitchen
My roller skates are bitchin'

How come you've got to make a fool of me
When you know it's not true to me
How come you gotta go and step on my heart
When you know that's no way to start
How come you've got to make a fool of me
When all I ever seem to do is scream
You go and try to make a fool of me
Oh yeah

I've got the movies and the discotech inside my mind
All the time, all night
I'm feelin' groovy on another one's dime
And if you wanna be the all-time bummer of the summertime
Then baby, why don't you keep whining all night
Because you're freaking me out and bringing down everyone's vibes
Oh yeah
