Lyrics

Misfit, Misfit, got no sense
Sitting like a chicken
On a chainlink fence
Never picks a side, all she does is cry
How many teardrops can she hide?
MISFIT, MISFIT - throw the dog a biscuit!
How many kicks until she licks it?
One, two, three, four, FIVE.

This situation's hopeless
No matter what I do
These smalltown girls will hate me
Since I stepped outside their rules

I see their angel faces twist into riddles
Sisters on a rampage with the scissors
Tongues packing sweet words
Like pistols - Firing on my back
Like heat seeking missiles

Pleading crying
Cannot satisfy
The cruel appetites of
GIRLS! GIRLS!

What do they see?
Why are these crosshairs on me?
What do they hear?
The voice of envy sneer
I'm a spotlight thief!
I won't take tea
I don't take lessons in how to be
Seen not heard
I'm a misfit little bird
Dodging bigger beaks
On a playground for
GIRLS! GIRLS!

Look who's all alone
It's the one woman show!
Who's got a stone?
Don't you know - Our status grows
When we tear into a threat
With a fine tooth comb!
She's all alone
Somebody please throw the dog bone!

Angel faces twist into riddles
Sisters on a rampage with the scissors
Tongues packing sweet words like pistols
Firing on my back
Like heat seeking missiles

Running, hiding, can't get by
The vicious social politics of
GIRLS! GIRLS!

What do they see?
Who places these crosshairs
On me? What do they hear?
The voice of envy sneer
I'm a spotlight thief!
I don't take tea
I won't take a lesson
In how to be
Seen not heard
I'm a misfit little bird
Lowliest of dirt
On a playground for
GIRLS! GIRLS!
Cruel, cruel, cruel
Vicious GIRLS!
