SZA blessed fans with an unexpected surprise during an onstage set at the Splendour in the Grass festival in Australia over the weekend. SZA’s surprise came in the form of a cover of the Wheatus classic song “Teenage Dirtbag.”

“Teenage Dirtbag” was originally released on July 17, 2000, and spent four weeks at No. 1 in Australia. The track sold a total of 5 million copies worldwide and was certified three-time Platinum after becoming the second best-selling single of the year.

Keeping the tradition of the song’s success in Australia, SZA gave it a fresh take.

Her name is Noelle
I have a dream about her
She rings my bell
I got gym class in half an hour
Oh, how she rocks
In Keds and tube socks
But she doesn’t know who I am
And she doesn’t give a damn about me

‘Cause I’m just a teenage dirtbag, baby
Yeah, I’m just a teenage dirtbag, baby
Listen to Iron Maiden maybe with me

Her boyfriend’s a dick
And he brings a gun to school
And he’d simply kick
My ass if he knew the truth
He lives on my block
And he drives an IROC
But he doesn’t know who I am
And he doesn’t give a damn about me

‘Cause I’m just a teenage dirtbag, baby
Yeah, I’m just a teenage dirtbag, baby
Listen to Iron Maiden maybe with me

Oh, yeah, dirtbag, no, she doesn’t know what she’s missin’
Oh, yeah, dirtbag, no, she doesn’t know what she’s missin’

Man, I feel like mold
It’s prom night and I am lonely
Lo and behold
She’s walking over to me
This must be fake
My lip starts to shake
How does she know who I am?
And why does she give a damn about me

I’ve got two tickets to Iron Maiden, baby
Come with me Friday, don’t say “maybe”
I’m just a teenage dirtbag, baby, like you

Oh, yeah, dirtbag, no, she doesn’t know what she’s missin’
Oh, yeah, dirtbag, no, she doesn’t know what she’s missin’
