They say in middle school young women start to bloom

Does that mean that they must come to school in costume?

I think I know why you dyed your hair like gold

If it looks valuable, it can get you sold

-

To the nasty boys, to the drama queens

To the nasty girls so they won't be mean

Innocent brown eyes and a perfect body

That's who you are to them, but all I see

-

Is the girl that I adore

Best friends since second grade

Treasure hunts in the thrift store

And selling lemonade

Read manga in the daytime, have sleepovers at night

Challenges to stay away 'til daylight

Who knows when to cheer me up and when not to speak a word

Who refused to give in and be seen but not heard

Don't sell yourself out now to somebody who just doesn't care

For your worth beyond your golden hair

-

You call yourself a dummy; you get C's in every class

You'll always feel this ugly when you beat yourself up like that

You think that pretty face is who you are

And sparkly clothes will get you on radar

-

Of the nasty girls, stupid drama queens

And the nasty boys, being so obscene

A perfect doll is who you try to be

It works on them, but girl, you can't fool me

-

You're the girl that I adore

Best friends since second grade

Treasure hunts in the thrift store

And selling lemonade

Read manga in the daytime, have sleepovers at night

Challenges to stay away 'til daylight

Who knows when to cheer me up and when not to speak a word

Who refused to give in and be seen but not heard

Don't sell yourself out now to somebody who just doesn't care

For your worth beyond your golden hair

-

I've seen you kicked around down on the dirt

I know that to this day you feel the hurt

You've been called a failure, but that's simply not true

There are so many wonderful things about you

-

You're the girl that I adore

Best friends since second grade

Treasure hunts in the thrift store

And selling lemonade

Read manga in the daytime, have sleepovers at night

Challenges to stay away 'til daylight

Who knows when to cheer me up and when not to speak a word

Who refused to give in and be seen but not heard

Don't sell yourself out now to somebody who just doesn't care

For your worth beyond your golden hair
