Underground (Live at Ziggy's)

Original Artist: Ben Folds

I was never cool in school,
I'm sure you don't remember me,
[Who the fuck are you?]
And now it's been ten years,
I'm still wondering who to be,
And I'd love to mix in circles, cliques and social coteries,
That's me.
Hand me my nose ring,
Can we be happy?
Show me the mosh pit,
Can we be happy?

We can be happy underground.
Who's got the looks?
Who's got the brains?
Who's got everything?
I've got this pain in my heart, that's all.
Hey you, with the long and lonely face,
Well there's gotta be something else.

Let me tell you something else,
There was a girl that passed me by,
She gave a smile but I was shy,
I looked down, so down.
Don't look there no no, go go underground,
And now there's a place to go.

It's the morning now,
It's the evening,
It's everything,
I click my heels and I'm there,

Underground,
Underground,
Ooooooooooo,
Everything's heavy underground,
You been kicked around?
Did life bring you down here?
Everything's heavy underground.

And we'll be decked in all black,
Slamming the pit fantastic,
Officer Friendly's little boy's got a mohawk,
And he knows just where we're coming from.
It's industrial,
Work it Underground,
Get down, get down, get down Yeah.

Underground,
Underground,
Ooooooooooo,
Everything heavy underground,
You been kicked around?
Did life bring you down here?
Everything's heavy underground.

We can be happy,
We can be happy,
We can be happy,
Underground.

And we can, we can, we can be.

Everything's heavy!
You been kicked around?
Did life bring you down here?
Everything's heavy underground.

Well bye bye.

And we can, we can, we can be.
And we can, we can, we can be.
And we can, we can, we can be.
And we can, we can, we can be.
