Modern-day Teenagers in Love

I don’t suppose you know Trish
She toured with Hootie & the Blowfish
Last summer as their groupie

In high school Jan’s the class geek
I hear she has on her left ass cheek
A fake tattoo of Snoopy

Trish and Jan might seem like ordinary girls
But they met a few months ago at an aromatherapy seminar
And now…
They’re modern-day teenagers in love
A perfect fit
Not like O.J. and his glove

Adam looks like Jim Carrey
And gets straight A’s in home ec, where he
Can bake a wicked nutbread

I think Blaine works at Starbucks
He says no shit, his parents are fucks
He likes Beavis and Butt-head

Adam and Blaine might seem like ordinary boys
But they met a few months ago over the Internet
And a few days after that in person at a coffeehouse other than Starbucks
And now…
They’re modern-day teenagers in love
A perfect fit
Not like O.J. and his glove

They’re modern-day teenagers in love
A perfect fit
Not like O.J. and his glove
