terminal preppie lyrics – dead kennedys

i go to college
that makes me so cool
i live in a dorm
and show off by the pool

i join the right clubs
just to build an impression
i block out thinking
it won’t get me ahead

my ambition in life
is to look good on paper
all i want is a slot
in some big corporation

john belushi’s my hero
i lampoon and i ape him
my news of the world
comes from sports ill*strated

i’m proud of my trophies
like my empty beer cans
stacked in rows up the wall
to impress all my friends

no, i’m not here to learn
i just want to get drunk
and major in business
and be taught how to f*ck

win! win!
i always play to win
wanna fit in like a cog
in the faceless machine

[chorus]
i’m a terminal terminal terminal preppie
terminal terminal terminal preppie
terminal terminal terminal terminal
terminal terminal terminal terminal

i want a wife with t*ts
who just smiles all the time
in my centerfold world
filled with springsteen and wine

some day i’ll have power
some day i’ll have boats
a tract in some suburb
with thanksgivings to host

[chorus]
i’m a terminal terminal terminal preppie
terminal terminal terminal preppie
terminal terminal terminal preppie
