Punk Rock Baby

When I came outta my momma
They cut my umbilical cord
I thought hey man what are you doing
And I let out a mighty roar
I got my first piercing
When they stabbed me with a pin
Pumped me full of something
And hit me in the shin
Ever since that moment
I’ve just been full of scorn
I’ve been a punk rock baby
Since the day that I was born

I got my first mohawk
At the age of one
Stole my old man’s razor
And then the job was done
I got a leather jacket
At the age of two
Then I put spikes all over it
With some super glue
I started scratching at my pants
Until they were all torn
I’ve been a punk rock baby
Since the day that I was born

I picked up my first electric guitar
At the age of three
Turned the volume up
Just as high as it could be
I yelled into the mike
About all the things I felt
About this nasty world
And the cards we’d all been dealt
About the toxic sludge
That made me angry and forlorn
I’ve been a punk rock baby
Since the day that I was born

I dropped out of nursery school
At the age of four
I said hey this place is boring
I am going out the door
I headed straight downtown
Sat down in the park
Met some other punks
Stayed out til way past dark
Partied til the dawn
Came back home in the morn
I’ve been a punk rock baby
Since the day that I was born

I moved into a squat
At the age of five
Behind the barricades I waited
For the cops to arrive
I climbed onto the roof and said
Here’s where I’m gonna stay
And I’m gonna be a rebel
Until I’m old and gray
Between the toes of your establishment
I’ll always be a thorn
I’ve been a punk rock baby
Since the day that I was born

Punk Rock Baby

“Punk Rock Baby” appears on my first CD of children’s music, Har Har Har.

Whether or not this is really a children’s song, I don’t know.  A lot of kids like it, but it’s probably at least as popular among adults who hear it.  If a kid’s gonna like the song, they’re likely from a fairly alternative background, like the child of punk rockers.
