Hobo Johnson – Ode to Justin Bieber Lyrics | The Fall of Hobo Johnson (2019)

Ode to Justin Bieber by Hobo Johnson


Yeah it’s really, really weird to want
The whole world to love you
I think it’s pretty bad for
My life and relationships
Sometimes I walk into public and instantly think
That the public doesn’t like me, shit
I don’t really know what I want
But I do know that I wan a little more
Of your attention, your love
Just look me in the eyes as I try to make you *Censor*
2 DUI’s, 7 thousand for the state
If I don’t blow up them I’m going back to minimum wage
So just smile yo, please smile
Look at me in the eyes, hold it for a while

It’s really, really weird to want
The whole world to love you
Kill all the pop stars and
Replace them with wholesome adults
And I’m getting better, being better
At being nice to my friends or whatever

It’s really, really weird to have
The whole world judge you
Justin Bieber never even got a pair to fucking shake
And you buy your mom a house at 13
You gonna be fucked up mentally, you know

I’m really, really sorry that nobody understands
And that we treat you like that
I’m really, really sorry that nobody understands
And we’re all really mean and dumb, and dumb, and you
We really shouldn’t be following you around all the time
That’s pretty fucked up dude, and I just wanna say too
None of these dudes really understand, neither me too
None of these dudes really understand, neither me too
None of these dudes really understand, neither me too
None of these dudes even understand, neither me too
None of these dudes even understand, understand

You are so fucking wrong Frank
Not about wanting people to love you, and then they do
But then they judge you so your whole life falls apart
But you are wrong about Justin Bieber
Let me explain

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait…
It’s really, really weird to live your whole life on TV
When I was eating Frosted Flakes
You were probably singing great

You made a song
And my mom even loved it
I made a song
And everybody said “Fuck It”
It’s really, really weird to
Throw an egg at your neighbor
I threw rocks and nobody even cared

You were on the front page of TMZ
I would just walk home and go to sleep
It’s really, really weird and I’m tired of trying
Really, really hard to get the whole world to like me

It’s kinda fucked up
I’ve been crying lately
I wanna wipe the tears with that Grammy baby

It’s really, really weird but I really respect you
For not strangling all the press that press you
I would go instead and just stay in my bedroom

We’re gonna show up to your house
And try to protect you

I’m really, really sorry that nobody understands
And that we treat you like that
I’m really, really sorry that nobody understands
And we’re all really mean and dumb, and dumb, and you
We really shouldn’t be following you around all the time
That’s pretty fucked up dude, and I just wanna say too
None of these dudes really understand, neither me too
None of these dudes really understand, neither me too
None of these dudes really understand, neither me too
None of these dudes even understand, neither me too
None of these dudes even understand, understand

My friends are counting on me
And I hope that they’re right
That I could really help them
With the rest of their life
I’m not sure if they should see me
For the guy that I am
Just that indecisive kid
Who wants to be friends, and
My family’s counting on me, and
I’m glad that they are
Cuz, cuz I can help them
Keep all their houses and cars
I came a long way from
Sleeping in my car by the park
And taking fucking shits
In the field in the dark
But when the lights turn off
Will I still feel the same as I used to
I think you said you wish
None of this ever happened
I don’t blame you

You’ll always leave a hole in my heart
And memories in my mind, and
Discover all of the dreams we had
Will never be over
