All the students and the teachers
Sittin up in the bleachers
Cheering for every single score
And you there in the back
Wondering what all this fuss is for
There may never come a day
when you just blend in
You may never come around
to where they're at
And you may never feel normal
But you might feel better
Soon as you decide you're okay with that
Growing up weird, growing up weird
Maybe it's not so bad
Not as bad as you feared
And you're thinking that you're growing up very strangely

Every day in school you're
Feelin so peculiar
Crash-landed from a distant planet
Gettin the evil eye
Whenever you walk by
and who can stand it?
Everyone who's anyone stood out like sore thumbs
Heroes are weirdos who refuse to quit
And you may never feel normal
But you might feel alright
Soon as you decide just to roll with it
