The song that made the Marvelous 3 a household...er...well, it got them a record deal, anyway. From the Hey! Album, 1999.

If ever one needed a quintessential song from the Marvelous 3, this would be it. The premise is simple -- in this case, the main voice of the song is asking for help in conforming to something he's not -- but it is the lighthearted and upbeat take on somewhat dark or emotional themes that carry the music. It is this trait that defines the Marvelous 3's repertoire as a whole, at least in my experience.

Vocals, Guitar: Butch Walker

I spend a lot on all the clothes that I got
'Cause all the geeks that I meet, they all look cooler than me
But what to do when they're all lookin' at you
'Cause you're the freak of the week, 'cause you're on the tv

Can you make me a promise
To stop it before we begin?
Will you hold onto my head
If I ever lose it again?

I got a shrink, I swear he's Elvis I think
He wears the coolest suede shoes when I come in with the blues
He thinks it's all about hot culture and art
But the truth of it is that it rips me apart

Can you make me a promise
To stop it before we begin?
Will you hold onto my head
If I ever lose it again?

Tell me I sold out, Tell me I sold out, go ahead
Tell me I sold out, Tell me I sold out, go ahead

I spend a lot on all the clothes that I got,
(Tell me I sold out,)
'Cause all the geeks that I meet, they all look cooler than me
(Tell me I sold out, go ahead)
But what to do when they're all lookin' at you
(Tell me I sold out,)
'Cause you're the freak of the week, 'cause you're on the TV
(Tell me I sold........)

Can you make me a promise
To stop it before we begin?
Will you hold onto my head
If I ever lose it again?

Tell me I sold out, Tell me I sold out, go ahead
Tell me I sold out, Tell me I sold out, go ahead

Can you make me a promise
(Tell me I sold out,)
To stop it before we begin?
(Tell me I sold out, go ahead)
Will you hold onto my head
(Tell me I sold out,)
If I ever lose it again?
(Tell me I sold out, go ahead)
Can you make me a promise
(Tell me I sold out,)
To stop it before we begin?
(Tell me I sold out, go ahead)
Will you hold onto my head
(Tell me I sold out,)
If I ever lose it again?....
(Tell me I sold out....)
