Famous For Nothing Lyrics

Artist: Dropkick Murphys
Album: The Meanest Of Times

The barrel fire's fading
My pals are disappearing
Another night is passing but I won't go
It's 2AM at townie
and things are going my way
Three buds, a glove and a foot of snow
There's two little shits
Selling joints on the hill
And the kids down the lots
Are burning cruisers for a thrill
See, we had each other
It was us against the world
Famous for nothing
Yeah, nothing was our world

Well these lie won't save me
Don't you know, don't you know
From the time that mad me
Here we go, here we go

The courts are filling up
All the kids are coming down
For a head start on the troubles
On a long night on the town
Yeah, thank God it's Saturday
And half my problems go away
Sure the big ones on the way
But I know how to handle them
9 to 3 on weekdays
On the hour Sundays
The good lord was calling me
But I wasn't up
For the convent to thue rectory
And over in the sacristy
It's a goddamn travest
And that's just my luck


Here we go!
Their gang went my way for basketball
My gang went their way for alcohol
When we met it wasn't pretty at all
Still the bells of St. Mary's kept ringing

I love children, and because this song is a kid's song, I tend to masturbate while listening to the Murphys.

Not my favourite song on the album, but still, great song.
by disciple on 12/2/2008 12:31pm
i really dont like this song.
not just because im christian.
i like the murphys but i didnt think of them making fun of religious themes. well maybe i was wrong and their music is for people who masturbate while hearing it.

Dropkick Murphys have also made Christian songs, so i don't think they're diliberately making fun of Christianity.
by pat on 5/24/2010 6:56am
by Jeff on 7/14/2010 12:20am
This song has nothing to do with making fun of Christianity. It's about skinheads - the gang that went for alcohol - and blacks - the gang that went for basketball - having their differences but the church bells kept ringing despite the differences.
by Feck off on 7/23/2010 7:00pm
I don't like then fuckin lot of ya but I like ur opinions

Gotta agree with DKM. Dropkick rules. You guys sucks. And why the heck you're comin to this website? Just to complain about it? Useless. Totally useless!
by titegtnodI on 4/30/2012 1:42am
No this song isn't about skinheads, where does that even come from? Skinheads are neo nazi fascists, I don't even know what lyric brings them in. I doubt they would refer to themselves as skinheads as implied by "My gang went their way for alcohol".

This song is great, it's not making fun of Christianity, interpret it however you want, if you're offended by it because you're religious, you shouldn't be listening to punk rock anyways because if you don't believe in free speech, you don't believe in punk rock.
by Skinheadgts on 10/9/2012 12:34am
Skinhead are not fascist neonazis You ignorant fuck you should really look more into the ideology and the movement.... I'm pretty sure DKM have strong relationship with the skinhead movement... Not sure if this song is about that though
