Oh baby, such sadness in your face,
I know my sweet, it’s such an utter disgrace,
how dare I ask you help clean this place
and there was you thinking you were winning the race.
It is so terribly sad
I can see you’re mad.
I am such a meany,
I am so fucking bad.
Don’t I know, I’m meant to stay down,
turn my smile into a frown
and forget all about adverbs and nouns.
Oh baby, such sadness in your eyes,
I know, I know, I know how hard you try,
to block the view of that glorious sky.
Such beautiful efforts you work real hard,
don’t I know my cage is barred.
Oh baby, such sadness in your soul,
but you can’t keep me down, don’t you know,
I’m more than any of your self imposed roles.
