Na na-na, na-na ne-a na naa,
Ho, Na na-na na-na ne-a na.

Wouldn't it be great
if no one ever got offended,
And wouldn't it be great
to say what's really on your mind?
I have always said all the rules
are made for bending,
And if I let my hair down
would that be such a crime?

I wanna be consequence free.
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter.
I wanna be consequence free.
Just sing, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.
I said, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.

I could really use to lose
my Catholic conscience,
'Cause I'm getting sick
of feeling guilty all the time;
And I won't abuse it, yeah,
I've got the best intentions,
For a little bit of anarchy,
but not the hurting kind.

I wanna be consequence free.
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter.
I wanna be consequence free.
Just sing, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.
I said, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.

I couldn't sleep at all last night,
'Cause I had so much on my mind;
I'd like to leave it all behind,
But you know it's not that easy.
Ohhh, for just one night.

Wouldn't it be great
if the band just never ended?
We could stay out late
and we would never hear last call;
We wouldn't need to worry
about approval or permission,
We could slip off the edge
and never worry about the fall.
(Worry about the fall.)

I wanna be consequence free.
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter.
I wanna be consequence free.
Just sing, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.
I said, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.
Ho, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.
Ho, Na na-na na-na ne-a na naaa.

[E] I could really [Badd11/E] use to [Aadd9/E] lose my Catholic [Badd11/E] conscience,

[E] We could stay out [Badd11/E] late and we would [Aadd9/E] never hear [Badd11/E] last call;
[E] We wouldn't need to [Badd11/E] worry about ap- [Aadd9/E] proval or per- [Badd11/E] mission,
