Descendents - On Paper Lyrics




I'm not so easy on the eye
It's been said my face can make an onion cry
I mean no harm, but I've got the charm
Of a murdering serial raper
I never get none, and I know why
But there's more to me than meets the eye
The real live me ain’t certified
But I look good on paper

Statistically I'm far above the rest
I do my homework, never have to guess
My social life's an empty wreck
Romance is an alien labor
There are things about me you'll never know
Unless you scratch the surface and look below
My resume is solid gold
I look good on paper

I got straight A's on every test
A perfect credit score
My ledgers never in the red
I look good on paper

I never get none, and I know why
But there’s more to me than meets the eye
If you got the time I'm qualified
I look good on paper
I look good on paper
I look good
On paper
On paper

    i'm not so easy on the eye
    It's been said my face can make an onion cry
    I mean no harm, but I've got the charm
    Of a murdering serial raper
    I never get none, and I know why
    But there's more to me than meets the eye
    The real live me ain’t certified
    But I look good on paper

    Statistically I'm far above the rest
    I do my homework, never have to guess
    My social life's an empty wreck
    Romance is an alien labor
    There are things about me you'll never know
    Unless you scratch the surface and look below
    My resume is solid gold
    I look good on paper

    I got straight A's on every test
    A perfect credit score

    I look good on paper

    I never get none, and I know why
    But there’s more to me than meets the eye
    If you got the time I'm qualified
    I look good on paper
    I look good on paper
    I look good 
    On paper
    On paper

    This band changed my life when I first heard Everything Sucks in 97. 20 Years later and they're still writing songs that I relate to. They can do no wrong.

  28. Savannah Robertson

    Never heard them before, good so far

    WhatEver_ Name_Works

    Savannah Robertson you'll love these guys. Milo Goes To College, ALL, Everything Sux.....those albums and their recent album too. 👍🏻

    Camouflage Squid

    The Dankest Killjoy

    OK, Milo Goes To College is their most famous album. One of their best too. This album is considered to be one of the most important in history as it was the first real pop punk album.

    I Don't Want To Grow Up is next. That one is my personal favorite. The first half of the album has some pretty loud songs, and the second half has love songs. My favorite song is Pervert.

    Enjoy! and ALL are the next two albums. They aren't the best two, but there are about 5-6 spectacular songs on each of those albums. Hurtin' Crue and Coolidge are my favorites there.

    Then they took a 9 year hiatus and returned with an album called Everything Sucks. This is my third favorite of theirs, with their most famous song I'm The One on it. This is a must listen for all true descendents fans.

    Next came Cool To Be You. This album was a bit softer and was released another eight years later, but it still is excellent. The song 'Merican is the highlight of this particular album, as well as songs named Cool To Be You and Mass Nerder.

    Then, another quick twelve years in the future came the new album, Hypercaffium Spazzinate.

    Enjoy one of the best bands on the planet!! Any questions let me know

  29. Chris O'Connor
