The bands I like they don't sell too many
records, and the girls I like they don't kiss
too many boys, and the books I read will
never be best sellers. Yeah but come on
fellas at least we made our choice

What do we want, and when do we want it?
And how would we feel if we knew we were
never gonna get it? Where did we start
from and where are we going? Can anyone
here say with any certainty that they know
what they're doing?

Ever feel like an awkward understudy
Thrown into a cast where you just don't
get along? All the crowd and the crew are
standing silent staring, and you can't shake
the feeling that somehow, you're doing it
wrong. So what do we want?

Mum and dad seemed like they had a
plan, then everything fell apart when mum
moved on, and now dad's a broken man.
And all these decisions, they keep getting
made, but I can't remember making them,
and no one wants to explain.

We're all awkward understudies wearing
comfortable shoes, getting comfortable
with doing it wrong. We missed the dress
rehearsals and we had too much to drink
before the show. But now it's showtime so
let's sing it out strong.

So be a fan of every band who ever makes
you want to move your feet. Fall in love
with every person who ever makes your
heart want to skip a beat. So come on,
come on come on, sing strong:

We shall not overcome,
We shall underwhelm.

The lives we lead might not be so very
perfect. And the plans we make might not
serve some final purpose, but the hearts
we heed they still beat the way they used
to, so if we're doing it wrong, well, what are
you going to do?

What do we want?
