The Lyrics

"Hi! I like shorts! They're comfy and easy to wear!"
Ev'ryone's Pokémon journey
Has its ups and downs, lows and highs
All your 'mons could die from Bug-type stings
Could run out of balls, that stinks
But you have one kid who's never in the dumps
Always smiles, never frowns
And that's because of the thing he likes
To say to whoever's 'round

This one little Youngster Ben, his shorts are his fame
On Route 3 is where you'll hear him say
That they're comfy and easy to wear, okay
Then he will send out his small rat and his snake
La-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la

Of all the things one can say at all
Before you fight with your pets
Quip 'bout your 'mons and then show your balls
Tell me I will be filled with regrets
I do not need to know how you feel about clothes
Ev'rybody else has good threats

That absolute weirdo Youngster Ben, his shorts are his fame
On Route 3 is where he's gonna stay
With his dead rat, also his unconscious snake
But with no dead love for his shorts, no damn way
Ah, la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
Ah, la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la

Why did he say those words that became memed?
Is it the one phrase he can speak?
Some weird psychological tactic
Throw me off my game, good trick
That could explain why Calvin who's a bit further down
Shouts out "Hey! You're not wearing shorts!"
Both of them Youngsters, it must be profound (ah-ah)
To a much diff'rent kind of dork (ah-ah)

But for me? I mock poor Youngster Ben, his shorts are his fame
On Route 3 is where you'll learn his name
Such a standout because it's just so inane
Just a pity that his team is kinda real lame
La-la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la
La-la-la-a-lala-la-la-lala, la-la

I was gonna make a comment about how weird it is to just name your band "America" but I just learned that they're English. Which is actually kinda funny.
