The fake "Pork and Beans" lyrics prank was planned by Albumsix users ohjonas and goatpunishment, with assistance from Soupandballoons in 2008.

Overview

This prank occurred in the build up of anticipation before the release of The Red Album. Shortly after "Pork and Beans" was announced as the lead single for Weezer's sixth album, ohjonas and goatpunishment started a thread on Albumsix.com (now AllThingsWeezer.com) in which they claimed to have found the lyrics of the yet-unreleased song posted online. The site they found it from had "been taken down" immediately after, however, and the only evidence left was the lyrics that they had "discovered." They then posted the lyrics to songmeanings.net in an attempt to convince people. The comments on "Pork and Beans"s song meanings page are still up from the prank.

Lyrics

The red little bean as a gift for you,
You didn't like it and made me a fool.
I explained myself and the things I do
I tried to tell you, but you lost your cool

I'ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain't got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans
And I don't care if that's not your thing.

The red little bean is uniquely mine
Outta my way I can't stay in line.
I explained myself and the things I do
I tried to tell you, but you lost your cool.

I'ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain't got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans
And I don't care if that's not your thing.

I'm fine the way I am.
And I just don't care, goddamn.

I'ma do the things that I want to do.
I ain't got a thing to prove to you.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans,
Excuse my manners if I make a scene.

I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like.
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside.
I eat my candy with the pork and beans
And I don't care if that's not your thing.

And I don't care if that's not your thing.
And I don't care if that's not your thing.
And I don't care, I eat pork and beans.
