"Don't Pick on Me," (also known as "Big Chip") is a Maladroit-era demo recorded by Weezer.

Overview

"Don't Pick on Me" is first known to have been demoed by Weezer at Sage & Sound Studios in Los Angeles, in the early recording process for the band's planned fourth album, what would eventually be Maladroit. These were the first recording sessions to feature bassist Scott Shriner. Four demos from the proper Maladroit sessions at Cello Studios were among dozens of demos released for free on weezer.com during the album's recording process. The song was ultimately abandoned.

Reception

Fans have had mixed reactions to "Don't Pick on Me." It was ranked as one of Weezer's better songs by the Weezer songblog Teenage Victory Songs, which placed it under "The Grand Playlist."

Lyrics

Go with the flow
It's the morning after
Don't pick on
Don't pick on me

'Cause I dont believe in a burn like that,
Pick up my donuts for free (Pick up the donuts for free)
When she comes 'round her big chip captures me

Get with the groove
Because it hurts me so bad
Don't trifle
Don't stifle me

'Cause I don't expect to be torn to shreds
Everytime I am in need
When she comes 'round her big chip captures me

And when she comes around
Her big chip spoils the sound

And I don't expect to be torn to shreds
Everytime I am in need
When she comes 'round her big chip captures me

And when she comes around
Her big chip spoils the sound

Get with the groove
Because it hurts me so bad
Don't trifle
Don't stifle me

Oh
