Ahead of the Curve

from Don't Get Smart by Jim's Big Ego

lyrics

All of my friends
are doing things that I was doing
when I was half their age
and all of my peers
are into stuff that I was into
before it was the rage
I used to watch tv and then I listened to the radio
and got into the internet now the internetis tired
I'd tell you what I'm into now but it just might start a trend
to cause the stock market to swerve
but I just might tell you anyway cause
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead of the curve
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead I'm ahead
I'm ahead I'm ahead I'm ahead of the curve.
Yeah! Whoh-oh! Yeah!

I used to know this girl who'd been abducted by aliens
she'd look into my eyes and then she'd look into the sky
and I got tired of that so I
found this other girl who was into crank and crack and Ritalin
we'd go out looking to score and then she'd start vibrating so fast
so I met this other girl who was into scarification she had
piercings all over her body and tatoos and stuff
and I don't even want to talk about it it's really gross
so I tried to find this normal girl and I went into this normal bar
and asked this normal girl out she said 'don't call me girl'
she didn't know what she was missing because
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead of the curve
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead I'm ahead
I'm ahead I'm ahead I'm ahead of the curve.
Yeah! Whoh-oh! Yeah!

So now you see me walking down the street
I've got this typical style of hair
and this typical style of clothes and you see me and you smile
but what you don't realize is that I'm 12 years ahead of you
where everything you own is retro now
I'm laughing at your sense of cool because
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead of the curve
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead of the curve,
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead of the curve,
I'm ahead of the curve, I'm ahead I'm ahead
I'm ahead I'm ahead I'm ahead of the curve.
Yeah! Whoh-oh! Yeah!
