lyrics

Why can’t you be like the girl next door?

Mom’s giving me the evil eye
I was her worst mistake
I wasn’t meant to be, I’m just a
pill she forgot to take
When I come home in the same clothes
I wore the day before
Raid the fridge, put up my feet
throw my shit on the floor
I sit and wait for the evil eye and the
Snoot up in the air
and something that’s hung on the tip of her tongue
Too bad I don’t care

Mommy hates me! Mommy hates me!
She can’t stand me anymore
She’s disgusted! We've discussed it
She’s gonna trade me for the girl next door

Why can’t you be like the girl next door?

Mom’s giving me the evil eye
I was her worst mistake
I’m not the dolly she always wanted
to go with the Easy-Bake
She hates the way I look – and the
way I see right through
When she chats on the telephone
Pretending everything is cool

Why do you have to dress like trash
and run around with that jerk
She’s gonna take away all my stuff
And make me go to church

Mommy hates me! Mommy hates me!
I was her worst mistake
Mommy hates me! Mommy hates me!
I’m just a pill she forgot to take

Why can’t you be like the girl next door?
