lyrics

There are many things in life that I would do
Things that won't make sense to you
Things you wouldn't want me to
There are many things i'm not supposed to take
But I would do it anyway
But there are just some things that you shouldn't even think of doing
Some terrible things, unspeakable things
Thinking about it makes my skin creep
Makes me sick and pale
You are an epic fail
When you've given your kid a rat tail

What the hell are they for anyway
What are you trying to say
Or did you miss a spot on haircut day
Is it for pulling your kid in the right direction
Or is it some kind of fashion slogan
Or maybe you are just a bogan
There are some unwritten laws that I just can't seem to ignore
If you wanted a tuft then that was your desicion
But did your kid give you the tuft permission
I'm guessing it wouldn't sail
You are an epic fail
When you've given your kid a rat tail

All the children running through the streets so oblivious and happy still
They have no idea that they look like small marsupials
Get your rat traps out and put some candy in it
Cos tonight I'm bringing home a rat child for dinner

It saddens me and make me deeply hurt
To see this haircut re-occur
I'd have thought you would have learnt
That boganhood at a young age has been said
To stunt your child's development
They'll never be president (no)
But don't you worry and don't you fret
I've got a pair of scissors in my pocket
Bring little Jayden here and we'll hold him down
You grab his legs so he doesn't move around
His little arms with flail
And for that tuft he'll wail
You are an epic fail
When you've given your kid a rat tail
When you've given your kid a rat tail
