Appearances

Overview

Weezer lead singer Rivers Cuomo has stated that when he wrote the song he was listening to Eminem, and that was his overall influence. However, the song is mainly about his days as a teenager in Connecticut, and the shenanigans he and his friends would get into. They called their antics "getting dangerous". Adam Orth, a longtime friend of Cuomo and a member of Homie, posted a blog entry on his website explaining the stories that were the basis for Cuomo's writing of this song.

Lyrics

When I was younger
I used to go and tip cows for fun, yeah
Actually I didn't do that
'Cos I didn't want the cow to be sad
But some of my friends did
They were all just a little bit wicked
They'd blow up mail boxes
With a baseball bat
Go for direct hits

On Halloween you can forget it
They throw rotten eggs into traffic
Toilet paper the fences
Throw the tables, chairs, and the benches
After practice
Sometimes we would break into mad fits
Causin' damage
(Burnin' amplifiers and mic stands)

Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous

I've got a confession
That I will make if you will listen
Late in the nighttimes
We'd drive around with hairspray and sharp knives
Lookin' for road kills
Lightin' things on fire for cheap thrills
Stab the corpses
And lick the knives like we're evil forces

Hockey games on frozen ponds
No safety pads were ever put on
Drivin' home on country roads
Sixty-five in a twenty-five zone
In my parents Tercel
How did we survive so well
Throw the keys and the wheel locked up
I almost killed every one of-

Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah!)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous

There must be
A guardian angel
Or some kind of destiny we have
'Cos we should have died
A long time ago
The way that we were livin' in our paths

What will we say when our kids come to us
And ask, with a smile on their face,
"Hey Dad, my friend's got some new ninja swords!
Is it cool if we slash up his place?"
Hey
Hey
Hey ("Is it cool if we slash up his place?")
And get dangerous

Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous (Boo yah)
Everybody get dangerous
Everybody get dangerous

(Ow!)
Ow!
Ow!
Gow!
Gow! (Yee, hee ha!)
Gow!
