Be the first to name the song title and band name of this song and you win!

I am the son
and the heir
of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

I am the son
and the heir
of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and the heir
of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

There's a club if you'd like to go
you could meet somebody who really loves you
so you go, and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home, and you cry
and you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen "now"
well, when exactly do you mean?
see I've already waited too long
and all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

Free Atari cartridges for looking stuff up on Google? I like this idea.

No, I really knew it. She loved Morrissey. Now if you put some rap lyrics up, then I will use google.

OK -- I'd like to play...

I've got a free 2600 common (your choice, if I've got it) for anyone who can identify this lyric, and you won't find it on Google. There's some _______ in the lyrics, as they say the name which also constitutes the song's title.
As an additional hint (for those who've been paying attention), the song was performed by the band I used to be in.

Hey you fucking intellectuals
You think you’re so where it’s at
Before you fill your minds with lots of junk come listen to ________
As writers and poets and artists, it’s your duty to live life to the most
So bug out brothers and check out the world
And give us a ride to the coast

Hey, you fucking intellectuals

You think you're so where it's at

Before you fill your minds with any junk

Better listen to Fritz the Cat

'Cause writers and poets and artists

It's your duty to live life to the most

So fly out, brothers, and check out the world

Give me a ride to the coast

Damn. Wish that had been there 3 years ago when I was trying to figure out the lyrics to that song.
You'll note that's the only hit (at least that I could find just now after being rightfully called out on my boast of nongoogleability.)

BTW -- I'm totally unsure whose version is more correct. Not only did I post the above from memory (and I haven't sang it in 2 years), but I learned the words just from listening (as did the author of the linked webpage, apparently) and the singer ain't exactly enunciating like Ian Anderson or anything. So let's just say that was my interpretation...

Yeah I knew it after reading the first line. Listening to Meat is Murder 500 times in highschool might have somthing to do with it. ;)
