lyrics

Was at my parents’ house, went to the basement
And what I found was surely nothing less than greatness
A dusty VCR and all my 80's tapes
Ghostbusters Goonies, Die Hard and the Terminator

Get out my hat and whip and start the exploration
Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Ferris Bueller, come and pick me up
I hate detention, but I really love the breakfast club
Please don't feed me after midnight
Don't call me Shirley

Even nerds can get revenge and did you know that
werewolves play basketball

And now it sucks so hard that I'm all grown up
I cannot call my friends to play my all-time favorite scenes of
Back to the Future and ride my hoverboard
Or use my feet to play songs on the toy stores' big piano

And now it's time to come home from imaginationland
But wait I shrunk the kids

Ferris Bueller, come and pick me up
I hate detention, but I really love the breakfast club
Please don't feed me after midnight
These 80's movies make me feel like everything's alright
Ferris Bueller, come and pick me up
I hate detention, but I really love the breakfast club
Please don't feed me after midnight
Don't call me Shirley
