We wrote a song about the phrase "I've got a bad feeling about this", and surprisingly (?) we didn't sing about Star Wars. Instead, here's a peppy doo-wop number about getting drunk and making probably bad decisions about who you should kiss.


Hey, you look fantastic
You're more punk than I'm used to
I'm more drunk than I'm used to
Can I sit down?

Yes, I'd like to taste your chapstick
I don't even know your name
Feel like I should know your name
Before we screw around

Well, I guess this is happening

I've got a bad feeling about this

When you take your clothes off
I can see your cool tattoos
I don't have cool tattoos
But yours look good

And I'd like to reassure you
That you're probably really nice
But I don't know if you're nice
I mean, I think you just drew blood

Well, I guess this is happening

I've got a bad feeling about this
And I've got a bad feeling about this

I'm past the point of no return
If you know what I mean
I just hope to all that's holy
That you're actually eighteen

I wake up in a panic
'Cause I dreamed I was your boyfriend
I know I'm not your boyfriend
But you're on my chest

Oh, I know you can be manic
But I've seen your cigarette burns
They're nasty cigarette burns
But I'm hoping for the best

Oh, please let this be happening
I know it shouldn't be happening

And I've got a bad feeling about this
