lyrics

Alright, alright, alright-yeah
Won’t you shut up, shut up
while I play?
Alright, alright, alright-yeah
Won’t you, shut up, shut up right away?

I don’t know if you got bored
but it’s obvious something’s wrong
‘cause I watch you from above
and you’re talking on and on
alright-yeah
while I play

I can only hear your voice
through the cheering and the noise
Is this all part of a plan?
for I’m getting paranoid
alright-yeah
while I play

It’s a pretty nasty habit
that’s affecting everybody everywhere
and the next time that I see you I will tell you right to your face:

Alright, alright, alright-yeah
Won’t you shut up, shut up
while I play?
Alright, alright, alright-yeah
Won’t you shut up, shut up right away?

Have you heard about respect?
I don’t care that you have payed
I will give your money back
Just to see you go away
go away
for heaven’s sake

It’s a pretty nasty habit
that’s affecting everybody everywhere
Now the next time that I see you I will tell you right to your face:

Alright, alright, alright-yeah
Won’t you shut up, shut up while I play?
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Won’t you shut the fuck up right away?
Won’t you shut the fuck up right away?
Won’t you shut the fuck up?
Shut up!
