Weezer - Troublemaker Lyrics




Put me in a special school cuz I am such a fool
And I don't need a single book to teach me how to read
Who needs stupid books? They are for petty crooks
And I will learn by studying the lessons in my dreams
So turn off the TV cuz that's what others see
And movies are as bad as eating chocolate ice-cream
They only sicken me, don't let me play football
I'll sack the quarterback and jack the brother of the ball

I'm a troublemaker, never been a faker
Doin' things my own way and never giving up
I'm a troublemaker, not a double-taker
I don't have the patience to keep it on the up

I picked up a guitar. What does this signify?
I'm gonna play some heavy metal riffs and you will die.
You wanted arts and crafts. How's this for arts and crafts?
Wuh- nuh- nuh- nuh- nuh- nuh- nuh- nuh- nuh- that's right!
I'm growing out my hair. I'm moving out to Cherokee.
I'm gonna be a rock star and you are gonna bear with me
Cuz I can't work a job like any other slob
Punchin' in and punchin' out and suckin' up to Bob

Marryin' a beeyotch, havin' seven keeyods
Givin' up and growin' old and hopin' there's a God.

I'm a troublemaker, never been a faker
Doin' things my own way and never giving up
I'm a troublemaker, not a double-taker
I don't have the patience to keep it on the up

I'm gonna be a star and people will crane necks
To get a glimpse of me and see if I am having sex
And studying my moves, they try to understand
Why I am so unlike the singers in the other bands.
I'm such a mystery as anyone can see
There isn't anybody else exactly quite like me
And when it's party time, like 1999
I'll party by myself because I'm such a special guy.

I'm a troublemaker, never been a faker
Doin' things my own way and never giving up
I'm a troublemaker, not a double-taker
I don't have the patience to keep it on the up

Weezer Troublemaker Comments
  1. poetgirl

    I fell in love with this video the first time, this hands down is my favorite video of them! 😂😂😂 I love his serious face at the beginning 😂 the lyrics are hilarious they make me laugh

  2. Trevor Thompson

    Tell me why that ad in the beginning was a GAP but the song in the intro sounded 100% like Tyler from the toadies.

  3. Aj Soave

    This sounds like the beginning to a mid 2000s teen movie

  4. The Grammar Crusader

    "Having seven keyaaads"

  5. Alyssa L.

    I haven’t heard this song since I was like, 8 .. this just threw me I still remember how it goes

  6. BrittonKitten

    Rivers’ pants though...

  7. willistic

    These people broke 5 records in a music video. Its criminally underrated

  8. Inkbred

    I think Rivers got possessed during the red album then went back to normal afterward

  9. MattTheMetalGuitarist

    This album is so lopsided. It has it's great moments like Pork and Beans and The Greatest Man That Ever Lived, and its flaws like Troublemaker and Automatic but its overall a pretty solid album.

  10. Ricardo Marin

    I like the new pop weezer but I reeeeeeeeally miss this "dirty" sound.

  75. André Pansera

    Till this day I don't get the Chicano Rivers and the Sk8er boi Rivers...

  76. yashoo 76

    The start sounds a bit like morty from rick and morty

  77. Jason W.

    And this is the era where Rivers tried to impersonate Freddie Mercury.

  78. billy jones

    weezer was cool in the 90's and is good to feel nostalgia even though their music was better back then

  79. Eddie The Head

    Why does a man with a mustache have to be gay? The world is so retarded these days, especially with judgement. Pathetic.

    Keven Schroeder

    You do know Freddie mercury was actually gay right?

  80. Meowdie Talks

  96. Conor Murray

    I'm pretty sure Rivers was being ironic with his alter ego.

    AOTA Vids

    Conor Murray

    You think? I think it might've been a midlife crisis sorta thing.

    Conor Murray

    You know what? I like your explanation much better. Rivers was going through a midlife crisis, I love it.

    Siamese Dreams

    I hope he was.

  97. Daffy Taffy

    I love this song.. it makes me want to be BAD every time.

  98. brinburg

    If Weezer would just stop putting out shitty new albums, and simply tour Pinkerton and the Blue Album as a nostalgia act, we all wouldn't hate them so much.

    mb1213

    brinburg their last two albums were good
