lyrics

Everything is a struggle
Everything is hard, hard, hard
Hard, hard, hard
She can't cut herself loose
When she's always
On her guard, guard, guard
Guard, guard, guard
She tries to get up
Get up
But she lands right on her crown
And she can't keep
Can't keep from falling down
Oh no

Everything is painful
Everything stings, stings, stings
Stings, stings, stings
She wants to take flight
But she ain't got no wings, wings, wings
Wings, wings, wings
She tries to force a smile
She tries
But it comes right out a frown
And she can't keep
Can't keep from falling down
Oh no

It's just so easy to mock her
And laugh at all her folly
What with her nerdy glasses
She looks a little like a Buddy Holly

Everything's a wall
It gets right in you way, way, way
Way, way, way
She has to do her homework
When she would rather play, play, play
She would like to swim
Swim away
But she is afraid that she will drown
And she can't keep
Can't keep from falling down
Oh no

Oh no she can't keep from falling down
She fell down and broke her crown
Now she looks just like a sad-faced clown
