lyrics

Life is not a flower bed
Thorns are there to make you bleed
No green, no pink, just brown and dead
BECAUSE IT'S METAL!

Thunderstorms anticipate
Rain and wind, no sun to shine
All doom, all gloom, just dark and gray
BECAUSE IT'S METAL!

Come learn my ways, it's so fun - yeah


(Chorus)
Can you comprehend how much I love metal?
I listen at breakfast, lunch and dinner
But I'm a granny, and I'm so lonely


Up all night to write a song
Heavy notes to rock your face
No food, no sleep, just play along
BECAUSE IT'S METAL!

Granny's got some facial hair
Threw my razor far away
Won't trim, won't shave, just leave it there
BECAUSE IT'S METAL!

Come learn my ways, it's so fun - yeah


(Chorus)
Can you comprehend how much I love metal?
I listen at breakfast, lunch and dinner
But I'm a granny, and I'm so lonely


(Breakdown and guitar solo)


(Final chorus - sing as Brandon)
Can you comprehend how much she loves metal?
She'll listen at breakfast, lunch and dinner
But she's a granny, yeah she's so lonely

(Broader chorus)
Can you comprehend how much I love metal?
Yeeeeaaaah!
