Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now) Lyrics

I don't know what the world may need
But I'm sure as hell that is starts with me
And that's a wisdom, I've laughed at
I don't know what the world may want
But a good stiff drink it surely don't
So I think I'll go and fix myself a tall one'Cause, what the world needs now
Is a new kind of tension
'Cause the old one just bores me to death
'Cause, what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my headI don't know what the world may need
But a V8 engine is a good start for me
Think I'll drive to find a place, to be surly
I don't know what the world may want
But some words of wisdom could comfort us
Think I'll leave that up to someone wiser'Cause, what the world needs now
Are some true words of wisdom
Like La la la la la la la la la la
'Cause, what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my headI don't know what the world may need
And I never grasped your complexities
I'd be happy just to get your attention
I don't know what the world may want
But your long, sweet body lying next
To mine could certainly raise my spirits'Cause what the world needs now
Is a new Frank Sinatra
So I can get you in bed
'Cause what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my headWhat the world needs now
What the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head, head, head
What the world needs now
What the world needs now
Is a new Frank Sinatra
So I can get you in bedWhat the world needs now
What the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head
What the world needs now
What the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head

Cracker is an American alternative rock band fronted by Camper Van Beethoven singer David Lowery, with guitarist Johnny Hickman. They are best known for their hit songs "Low" and "Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)".

The band's website once noted Cracker as "The only band to ever open for both Grateful Dead and Ramones," a unique distinction which is also indicative of the band's sound and style. Cracker comfortably mixes influences and sounds ranging from classic country music, psychedelia, punk and folk into their brand of "Americana" style rock.

Lowery and Hickman are inalterable constants. The band continues to tour (as a full band, and also as the "Cracker acoustic duo"). Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
