I Just Wanna Be Loved

This song is by Bowling for Soup and appears on the album Sorry for Partyin' (2009).

I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be extraordinary
I'm just your everyday average white guy
On the radio

Whoa, oh, oh

I just wanna be loved
Like the English people love their spliffs and curry
Like a kid loves money from the tooth fairy
Like Tubaka loves Han Solo

Why can't you see that I'm only
Everything you want?
How come you give just enough to
Keep me hangin' on?

I don't care what you say
You're gonna love me someday
I don't mean to talk so tough
I just wanna be loved

Loved, loved, loved, loved
I just wanna be loved
Loved, loved, loved, loved

I don't know how to surf
But I'm really, really good at karaoke
Maybe I'm not just an average white guy
Except down there
In case you care that life's not fair

Why can't you see that I'm only
Everything you want?
How come you give just enough to
Keep me hangin' on?

I don't care what you say
You're gonna love me someday
I don't mean to talk so tough
I just wanna be loved

Loved, loved, loved, loved
I just wanna be loved
Loved, loved, loved, loved

'Cause you like shiny things
Like diamond rings, sushi and Hybrid cars
Poker chips and Lyso dips
And getting thrown out of bars

I don't care what you say
You're gonna love me someday
I don't mean to talk so tough
I wanna be loved

You like chocolate ice cream
But you hate your mother
Can't you see that you and me were
Made for one another?

I'm your biggest fan
You understand there'll
Never be no other
You're the best girl, that's for sure

I don't care what you say
I just wanna be loved
And I don't mean to talk so tough
I just wanna be loved

I don't care what you say
I just wanna be loved
And I don't mean to talk so tough
I just wanna be loved

L
(Ugh damn it)
